Enoch walked with God (Genesis 5:22, 24). He walked with God after he married and had children. His responsibilities and duties at home did not affect his walk with God. So those who say that family needs leave them with little time for God are without excuse.
The Bible asks this question: “Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so (Amos 3:3)?” In the same way Enoch was in agreement with God. Is your will in agreement with God’s will? If yes, you too can walk with God.
We do not read of anyone else in his generation having walked with God. Does that mean God gave a special preferential status to Enoch? No. The possibility was open to all. Only Enoch chose to walk with God.
See it is a choice and decision you make. You too can walk with God.
His walk with God enabled him to see into the future. He prophesied about the second coming of Jesus Christ (Jude 14, 15).
There is yet another prophetic element in his life. He walked with God after the birth of his son Methuselah. Now that name means “his death shall bring.” Bring what? Judgement. How do we arrive at this conclusion? A little calculation brings us to the year of his death which is the year of the flood.
So Enoch named his son with a prophetic insight about the coming flood. Therefore the coming judgement by flood was certainly one strong motive which inspired Enoch to walk with God. How much more should we walk with God because judgement by fire is coming upon this earth?
That happens in connection with the second coming of Jesus Christ which was first prophesied by Enoch himself. Not only did he foretell but he got a foretaste of rapture (the term refers to coming of Jesus in mid-air and the gathering of the saints there) as well.
He is noted in the roll call of faith as one who pleased God (Hebrews 13:5). May the Spirit of God enable you too to walk with God. One way to do so is to strive to do what is pleasing to God.
