Genesis 5:21–24 (ESV): "21 When Enoch had lived 65 years, he fathered Methuselah. 22 Enoch walked with God after he fathered Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters. 23 Thus all the days of Enoch were 365 years. 24 Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him."Walking with God is a daily action. We must pursue Him today as much as we did the day before. Its not circumstantial it's a matter of necessity always. May as never cease preaching to ourselves the desperate need to walk with Him daily!
The genealogy of Adam is given to us in chapters 4&5 of the book of Genesis. Moses is given this information by way of revelation. He is detailing the bloodline of Adam through Seth. Seth means "substitute" for he was viewed by Eve as a replacement for her late son Abel who was murdered by his brother Cain. Interesting enough, this is the very bloodline of Jesus! God would provide a substitute for the wrath that we deserve through the lineage of Seth. Through his third generation came a man named Enoch. He was 65 years of age when he fathered Methuselah and then he lived another 300 years and then was no more. It's interesting that Enoch walked with God 365 years on earth and then the Lord took Him up. He didn't die. He was "taken" by God which means to grasp or seize just like the word harpazo in the Greek that translates by way of Latin to the English word "rapture" (1 Thess 4:17).
The picture is clear, there are 365 days in a year. We are to walk with God every day of the year. Doesn't matter how long we have walked with Him we keep walking until He calls us home. The day is quickly approaching when those who belong to Him will be taken as well. Until then may we as modern day Enoch's walk with God daily.
Father, we thank You for Your grace and mercy. Our lives belong to You alone. Forgive us for not seeking You as we ought. May we daily pursue You with a desperation that declares our absolute dependence upon knowing and walking with You. Put a greater passion in our hearts for Your Word and transform us into the image of Jesus in whose name we pray, amen and amen!
