Post 3 of 3, Saturday, September 29, 2018;His glorious removal to a better world.
Welcome my Friends.
Please come in and have a seat. Over the past few days I have been remembering and studying - different 'persons' of the Holy Bible. And, the Lord, I believe, has laid on my heart to do a a 'new' 'bi-monthly' 'Saturday Series', 'Characters of the Holy Bible'.
Remember, as I am always remembering, that what is written at 1 Corinthians 10:11, to wit: 'Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.' We can learn from 'Characters of the Holy Bible'.
Now, let us look at other 'specifics', to 'glean' more about this 'man who found favor [grace] in the eyes of the Almighty', who took him to heaven without death as a precedent.
What was the nature of his religion and the scope and tenor of his conversation, or life?
We find that Enoch 'walked with God' Please take careful not of what this means:
(1.) Enoch lived in 'true religion', that is Enoch lived a life of 'godliness', doing what God told him to do. Period. He came, as it were, along side God, or, 'walked in the same direction, with God'. The ungodly and profane are without God in the world, they walk contrary to him: but the godly walk with God, which presupposes reconciliation to God, for two cannot walk together except they be agreed [Amos 3.3].
Walking in accord with God' includes all the parts and instances of a godly, righteous, and sober life. To walk with God is to set God always before us, and to act as those that are always under his eye. It is to live a life of communion with God both in ordinances and providences. It is to make God's word our rule and his glory our end in all our actions. It is to make it our constant care and endeavor in every thing to please God, and nothing to offend him. [Psalm 16:8; 1 Corinthians 10:31]
It is to comply with his will, to concur with his designs, and to be workers together with him. It is to be followers of him as dear children. It is as if His hand has a 'kid glove on it', and we are the recipients of His 'grooming' 'kid gloves'. [Matthew 4:19; 19:14; Ephesians 2:10-22]
[2. Eminent, very present, religion. He was entirely dead to this world, and did not only walk after God, as all good men do, but he walked with God, as if he were in heaven already. He lived above the rate, not only of other men, but of other saints: not only good in bad times, but the best in good times. [Galatians 2:20-21]
[3.] Activity in promoting religion among others. Executing the priest's office is called walking before God, 1 Samuel 2:30, 35; Zechariah 3:7]. Enoch, it should seem, was a priest of the most high God, and like Noah, who is likewise said to walk with God, he was a preacher of righteousness, and prophesied of Christ's second coming. [Jude 14, Behold, the Lord cometh with his holy myriads.] [See also our 'commission', Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16]
Now the Holy Spirit, instead of saying, Enoch 'lived', says, Enoch walked with God; for it is the life of a good man to walk with God. This was the business of Enoch's life, his constant care and work; while others lived to themselves and the world, he lived to God. Further, this 'walking with God' was the joy and support of his life. Communion with God was to him better than life itself. 'To me to live is Christ..' Philippians 1:21.
In 'today's terminology', we say 'Just give me Jesus! Amen. Amen.' In Joshua's day, it was, 'As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD'! [Joshua 24:15] For Jesus, it was - 'Not my will, but thy will be done'. [Luke 22:42] For David, it was 'a man after God's heart'. [1 Samuel 13:14; Acts 13:22] For the Apostle Paul, it was 'I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.' [Galatians 2:20] 'CHOICES'.
We shall continue this post on Part B, this afternoon. Please, stay tuned. Amen. Amen.
