Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
Ge 5:24 And ENOCH walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
What a beautiful story. Enoch and God walking together and I can imagine Enoch thinking "It's getting late. I need to go home" and God saying, "You can just go home with Me."
I personally believe that this is a picture of Jesus' return to take His people out of the world before the great tribulation period. He will take those who are walking with Him on to his home to stay.
I have been invited to places that really impressed me. I have been impressed by their beauty, by their vastness and by their value. They were nothing compared to the place that God has prepared for those who love Him.
Faith should make us want to walk with God. Faith should assure us that at the end of the day God has a wonderful home and He will translate us into something more beautiful that we can not imagine except by faith.
