“And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.”
“By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.”
It is a privilege of a lifetime to walk with God. God is love. He is such a pleasant and sweet Person to befriend. God made man in His image, and after His likeness to fellowship with Him. God is love and so loving that He does not want to live by Himself, He wants to share His life. God made us in His image to share in His life, joy and experience. 1 John 1:3 tells us that our fellowship is with the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. Angels do not have this privilege. Only man has this privilege to walk with God intimately. Our opening Scripture tells us of Enoch that he walked with God, and was not; for God took him. Enoch was translated that he did not see death, and before his translation, he had a testimony that he pleased God. By walking with God, the Fountain of life, he was translated from the realm beneath unto the realm above. A walk with God is the way to fellowship with the divine nature such that your life altogether is a wonder. When you walk with God, God rubs off on you. You become like God daily as you walk with Him. It is a miracle when you walk with God. In fact you become a miracle on two legs. Hallelujah!
What does it mean to walk with God? How does one walk with God? Well, walking with God simply means keeping pace with Him by His Word. Faith is what is required to walk with God. Faith is receiving, believing and acting upon the Word of God. Enoch walked with God by faith; Noah did by faith, Abraham did by faith, and all the patriarchs of old also did by faith. 2 Corinthians 5:7 tells us that we walk by faith, not by sight. Walking by faith simply means to respond to God on the basis of His Word, not sensory perception.
There is revelation knowledge of the Word which comes to your spirit by the Holy Spirit, and there is sense knowledge of the Word; which is head knowledge. Walking with God requires revelation knowledge of the Word, which is faith knowledge. By this kind of knowledge, your spirit responds to God, and every step you take acting on the light of the Word in your spirit amounts to a walk with God. God is a Spirit, and everyone who worship Him must do so in spirit and in truth. In the same vein, everyone who walks with Him must do so by faith, responding to God by acting on the light of the Word in them.
My Solid Front (Confession): In the Name of Jesus Christ, I declare that I walk with God by faith. My heart is continually open to the revelation of the Word, and as I receive it, I live by it in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
