Death Defying Faith

Hebrews 11:5-6 (NASB)

5  By faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death; AND HE WAS NOT FOUND BECAUSE GOD TOOK HIM UP; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God.

6  And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. 

1.     Living With God Pleasing Faith     

Hebrews 11:5-6 (NASB)

5  By faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death; AND HE WAS NOT FOUND BECAUSE GOD TOOK HIM UP; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God.

6  And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. 

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (NASB)

16  For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

17  Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord. 

2.     Walking With God The Father As A Godly Father   

Genesis 5:19-25 (NASB)
19  Then Jared lived eight hundred years after he became the father of Enoch, and he had other sons and daughters.
20  So all the days of Jared were nine hundred and sixty-two years, and he died.
21  Enoch lived sixty-five years, and became the father of Methuselah.
22  Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he became the father of Methuselah, and he had other sons and daughters.
23  So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years.
24  Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.
25  Methuselah lived one hundred and eighty-seven years, and became the father of Lamech.

Amos 3:3 (NIV)
3  Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?

2 Corinthians 5:7 (NASB)

7  for we walk by faith, not by sight—

Romans 6:4 (NASB)

4  Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.

3.     Stand Against Godlessness & Proclaim The Goodness Of God              

Jude 1:14-15 (NASB)

14  It was also about these men that Enoch, in the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied, saying, "Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones,

15  to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him." 

Jude 1:16 (NASB)

16  These are grumblers, finding fault, following after their own lusts; they speak arrogantly, flattering people for the sake of gaining an advantage.
