5: 21,22,23 And Enoch walked with God after he begot Methuselah three hundred years, and begot sons and daughters. – Even though he had children and a wife he walked with God!
Enoch walked with God for three hundred years.
Noah walked with God. (Gen. 6:9)
Abraham walked with God. (Gen. 17:1)
Jacob – God was Jacob’s shepherd (Gen. 48:15). Therefore, God walked with Jacob!
Isaac – Walked before the Lord (Gen. 48:15)
Who did Enoch walk with? God of the universe? I think Jesus, who specializes in man.
5: 24 And Enoch walked with God, and he was not; for God took him.
Enoch walked with God because:
· He was His friend and like His company.· He was going in the same direction as God
· He had no desire for anything but what lay in God’s path.”
He was one of those who “called on the name of the Lord”.
-Not legalism (before the Law)
-focus on the Name of the Lord.
