That Man Enoch (Digging Deep – 29/10/2019)
The bible does not give us too many details about the man Enoch.
He is the son of Jarred, Gen 5:18 and father of many sons and daughters,the prominent of who was Methuselah, Gen 5:21-22.
But the most striking statements about Enoch were that he walked with God, and God took him.
May the Lord teach about this great saint tonight for our own benefits in Jesus name amen.
1. Enoch must have been a lonely man, But he was never really alone.
Anyone who decides to walk with God must have decided to be out of steps with the world and its changing fashions.
such a fellow must focus his attention on God only. He/she must believe firmly that it is possible to walk with a Holy God through living a victorios, holy life.
Such a person will be lonely because he cannot have many friends,but surely he will never be alone because God will keep him company.

2. Enoch pleased God. That is a comprehensive testimonial.
From the fact that Enoch pleased God, we can deduce alot of information:
a. He must have been a man of faith
b. He must have been full of praises of God
c. He must have been a giver
d. He must have served God through love of God
e. He must have witnessed for God. No wonder God took him!
