Correct. Enoch by faith
diligently sought after God, and received God's favor.
faith Enoch was taken up so that he should 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.
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." Hebrews 11:5-6
Enoch Was Taken Up
So That He Should Not See Death (Hebrews
Faith is the assurance of things
the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews
|1. What is the

God will reward those who seek Him (Hebrews
|2. What is

|3. What is
rewarded Enoch by taking him up to heaven so
that Enoch would not see death.
|4. How did
Enoch have this assurance and conviction

Understand the thing hoped
for...or the thing not seen.
Hear God's word (Faith comes
by hearing...and hearing by the word of
Christ. Romans 10:17) to
understand God's power and faithfulness
to His promises.
Do your part, if any.
Trust God that He has done what
He has said...and/or that He will do
what He promises.
Pray that God will help increase
your belief and faith (Luke 17:5, Mark
9:23-24) and give you wisdom (James 1:5).
Sometimes God rewards us in ways that we do not expect. We do not know
if God had promised to Enoch that he would not see death. The scriptures
do not give us this information. But we do know from scriptures that the
reward that Enoch received was as a result of his faith (Hebrews 11:5).
Do you have faith that God will reward you...if
you seek after Him...and choose to do those things
that are pleasing in God's sight?
