Enoch in the Bible – What the Bible Tells Us

According to the Bible, Enoch was the descendant of Cain who in the historical account of Cain and Abel killed his brother Abel and was banished from the land.  Enoch was a man who lived to please God and he walked in close relationship with God.

Enoch in the Bible at the age of 65 gave birth to Methuselah and lived another 300 years in which he had many more sons and daughters.  One day we are told in Genesis 5:24 that one day he disappeared, and we find out that it was because the Lord took him to be with Him in heaven.

There are a few more references to Enoch throughout the Bible, one of which is in the Book of Hebrews 11:5.  It is here that we find out that Enoch in the Bible had great faith and it was because of this faith that he was able to please God, and it was the reason that God took him.

Hebrews 11:5,6 “It was by faith that Enoch was taken up to heaven without dying—“he disappeared, because God took him.”  For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God.  And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.”

We also find out that Enoch in the Bible, according to Jude 1:14-6 prophesied about God’s final judgement on the entire world. This judgment is a reference to the final judgement on the earth at the end of the Great Tribulation. You can read the entire prophecy below:

Jude 1:24-26 “Enoch, who lived in the seventh generation after Adam, prophesied about these people. He said, “Listen! The Lord is coming with countless thousands of his holy ones 15 to execute judgment on the people of the world. He will convict every person of all the ungodly things they have done and for all the insults that ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”

These people are grumblers and complainers, living only to satisfy their desires. They brag loudly about themselves, and they flatter others to get what they want.”

Enoch was a faithful servant of God and was blessed for it, living a long life with many sons and daughters, being taken up to heaven to be with God. We too can have a life like that of Enoch, if we are willing to live a life that is pleasing to God, and have a close relationship with our creator.
