I thought I would end the last day of Black History Month with a post on the prophet Enoch. In case you’re unfamiliar, Enoch the Ethiopian, Patriarch-Prophet, according to the Bible is the first perfect human being and first immortal man.
He is the seventh seed of Adam and the great-grandfather of Noah; described by some as the second most powerful man in the Bible.
According to the Bible, he is the first man to have “walked with God” (Gen. 5:22, 24) for more than three hundred years and is one of three men (Enoch, Elijah and Jesus Christ) to have ascended, body and soul into heaven without having experienced death.
What makes Enoch unique is that he was the first to have both “walked with God” and ascended. He lived so righteously that he did not die. The first man in Biblical history to enter paradise in an earthly form and yet has been kept a virtual secret for more than 1000 years.
He was greater than Abraham and holier than Moses. A prophetic spiritual leader before the Biblical flood and great living example of the power of faith (Heb. 11:5).
I’ve just began learning about this fascinating man and encourage you to do the same. Below are two references to get you started. The first book is rather repetitive but still enlightening nonetheless. The photo is for illustration purposes only.
