Faith Pt 4—Spiritual Gifts Applied
These three remain, faith, hope & love… 

1st Corinthians 13:7 …and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing…

Faith Delivers Us From Death
Hebrews 11:5  By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found, because God had taken him away.

When Enoch had lived 65 years, he became the father of Methuselah. Enoch walked with God after his son’s birth for 300 years and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Enoch were 365 years. Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.  Gen 5:21-24 

Believers Are Modern Day Enochs!
Colossians 1:13   (He) has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son:

Faith Believes in God’s Word Implicitly Which Pleases God
Hebrews 11:5-6  …before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. For without faith it is impossible to please God, for whoever would approach Him must believe that He exists and that he rewards those who seek Him. Pleased: To gratify entirely. Strong’s Bible Dictionary

1st Corinthians 2:12-15 …we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit of God; so that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. We speak of these, not in the words that man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man cannot receive the things of God’s Spirit: for they are foolishness to him: he cannot know them, because they are spiritually discerned… 

Walking With God takes You In His Direction
Genesis 5:24  Enoch walked faithfully with God…

Walking is not a step it is a series of steps one after the other, day after day, year after year…Stedman

A Walk With God  Is A Lifetime journey
…then he was no more, because God took him away.

It Results in an Eternal Destination

When We Walk With God We Speak for God
Enoch in the seventh generation from Adam prophesied, saying, Behold, the Lord came with his holy myriads, to execute judgment on all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their deeds of ungodliness which they have committed in such an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.  Jude 14-15

Enoch’s Son Was A Prophecy Of God’s Word
Genesis 5:21-22  Enoch lived sixty five years, and begat Methuselah: Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years…

Methuselah literally means, “when he dies, it will come.”

Revelation 19:9-10 …the angel said to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!'” And he added, “These are the true words of God!” At this I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do it! I am a fellow servant with you and with your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”
