Enoch

Dear Tim:
I will make a couple COMMENTS in your email..................
   

 Hi Ray,
 
       From what you say, you think that Enock was transported some where else on earth and died later at some point. Where did God relocate Enock?
 

COMMENT: The Scriptures do not tell us where.
 

Hebrew tells us that God removed Enock from earth
 

COMMENT:  Hebrew tells us NO SUCH THING.
 

 because he was pleasing to God. Enock never saw a physical death like we will.
 

COMMENT:  Nonsense, of course Enock died:  "By faith Able...By faith Enoch...By faith Noah...By faith Abrfaham...Through faith also Sara...THESE A-L-L [including Enoch] DIED in faith, NOT having received the promises..."
 

The word transported means to take or remove it doesn't mean that God put Enock some where else on earth.
 

COMMENT:  The Greek word "metatithemi" means "to transfer--literally to transport..." Strong's Lexicon.
 
"Transfer" means "To convey or cause to pass from one...to another." And "transport" means "To carry from one PLACE to another [place]..." (The American Heritage College Dictionary).
 

Enock wasn't seen again on earth as the scripture tells us.
 

COMMENT:  That proves absolutely nothing.  Lots of people transfer to different locations, and are never heard from again. Does that prove that they all went to heaven and never died?
 

Hebrew 11:5 states 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.

These verses are pretty clear,
 

COMMENT:  Yes they are. Pity you can't believe what they say, however.
"These [including Enoch] ALL DIED in faith, NOT having received the promises...."  Pretty clear to me!
God be with you,
Ray


God bless Tim
