Times were bad when this character, Enoch, lived...

Enoch walked with God.
Genesis 5: 24.

Times were bad when this character, Enoch, lived.

The economy and culture were developing well, to be sure, but brutality and violence were increasing in a horrific measure. And that was a very long time ago: before the great flood.

“We must make the best of things!” most people say under such conditions. It was so then, and things haven’t changed today. But Enoch behaved otherwise: he swam against the tide by living with God.

Where was the righteous God, if everything was in turmoil? Enoch, that man of faith, knew that God was there despite everything. God was waiting to see whether people would turn to Him before He brought the judgment He had announced upon this earth (cf. 2 Peter 2:5; 1 Peter 3:20).

Nothing gets out of God’s control. At that time Enoch had a close relationship with God and could be certain of His blessing. But the world did not improve: people carried on worse than ever.

Must one give up and throw away one’s trust in God under such conditions? Enoch did not do so. People may wonder how believers can look to the future with such confidence. Living in fellowship with God makes it possible. God rewards their trust by informing them of His plans for the future in the Bible.

That was the case with Enoch. He received extraordinary revelations about coming judgment.

The epistle of Jude makes this abundantly clear: “Now Enoch … prophesied …saying, “Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of his saints to execute judgment on all” (vv. 14.15):.

“The secret of the LORD is with those who fear him (Psalm 25:14).

Today‘s reading: 1 Kings 5: 1 – 14 · John 5: 10 – 18

GOD HAS A SUBSTITUTE

GOD HAS A SUBSTITUTE

One thing we need to learn in today’s reading is that God always has a substitute. If God says He wants you, rejoice! However, be careful, because even as He is choosing you, He has already prepared a substitute. 1 Samuel 2:27-30 tells us about Eli. God chose Eli and his family to serve Him. God later...More
