Pastor Chris White says to all of you: HELLO MY FRIENDS. May the Lord bless you today.
HOLA MIS AMIGOS. Que el Señor los bendiga.
According to the Bible, Enoch and Elijah are the only two people God
took to heaven without them dying. Genesis 5:24 tells us, “Enoch walked with
God; then he was no more, because God took him away.” Second Kings 2:11 tells us, “Suddenly a
chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and
Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind.” Enoch is described as a man who
“walked with God for 300 years” (Genesis 5:23). Elijah was perhaps the most
powerful of God’s prophets in the Old Testament. There are also prophecies of
Elijah’s return (Malachi 4:5-6).
Why did God take Enoch and Elijah? The Bible does not specifically give us the answer. Some speculate that they were taken in preparation for a role in the end times, possibly as the two witnesses in Revelation 11:3-12. This is possible, but not explicitly taught in the Bible. It may be that God desired to save Enoch and Elijah from experiencing death due to their great faithfulness in serving and obeying Him. Whatever the case, God has His purpose, and while we don’t always understand God’s plans and purposes, we know that “His way is perfect” (Psalm 18:30).
