The Account of Enoch


  • When Jared was a hundred and sixty-two years old, he became the father of Enoch… When1 Enoch was sixty-five years old, he became the father of Methuselah. Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God three hundred years after the birth of Methuselah and had other sons and daughters. So all the days of Enoch were 3three hundred and sixty-five years. And [in reverent fear and obedience] Enoch walked with God; and he was not [found among men], because God 4took him [away to be home with Him]. Genesis 5:18,21-24 AMP

1Enoch started walking with God at the age of 65. We can all start waking with God whatever age we are. Read: Walk with God
2Enoch was a family man; not a hermit. In spite of this, he walked with God.
3From the time Enoch started walking with God, he continue walking with God till his life on earth ceased.
4Enoch joined the exclusive club of only two people (the other being Elijah)  so far who did not see death.


  • Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also, saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgment on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.” Jude 14-15 NKJV


  • By 1faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now 2before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. And 3without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. Hebrews 11:5-6 ESV
  • By faith [that pleased God] Enoch was caught up and taken to heaven so that he would not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found because God had taken him; for even before he was taken [to heaven], he received the testimony [still on record] that he had walked with God and pleased Him. But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him. Hebrews 11:5-6 AMP
1&3Enoch was a man of faith. In fact one of the key verses about faith Hebrews 11:6 is preceded by and is a continuation of the account about Enoch.
2Enoch was among the very few people who while they were alive itself was commended as having pleased God.
