ENOCH

LESSON 15   

Teacher Reference:    READ: 1 Corinthians 15:12-26; Jude 14-16; Mark 8:36-38; Genesis 5:22-28

 

INTRODUCTION

 

ENOCH is a perfect example to all Christians, and a challenge to us, regarding the conditions, to have part in the first resurrection!  Also, to return to this earth with Jesus, to rule and reign with Him for a thousand years!

 

Before we begin our study, we should mention:

1) There are two people of the Line of Cain called - ENOCH and LAMECH.

2) There are also two people of Righteous Abel called - ENOCH and LAMECH.

Comment        Here we see two people by the same name, but different journeys!  We see this in our day with Christians and churches (so called) - the names are right, but the journey is wrong!  (There has always been and always will be good and bad, true and false, righteous and unrighteous until the day when all things will be brought to light in the day of the judgment)
