"And Enoch walked with God: and he was not, for God took him" (Genesis 5:24)
Enoch was a spiritual rebuke to his own generation. He fought off the wiles and the temptations of the devil. He purposed within himself: "I will walk with God by faith even if that means that I must be detached from my generation."
Are you really detached from your generation because you resist the devil and walk in the fullness of the Holy Spirit? Am I? That is a very personal question, and we dare not try to answer it for each other.
Our generation in this world system claims that there is no personal devil, no enemy of our souls. Yet, all the while, satan is busy. He is using a successful, age-old tactic with many people. He s assuring them in a variety of ways that there is no urgency in the matters of faith... "Put off a decision until you feel you are ready." That is the devil's urging to those who are lost. As a result, millions have waited. And in waiting, they have never come to God in repentance and faith.
As of old [Christ] hung on Calvary between two men that represented at once both heaven and hell, so still it is true that the Cross of Jesus is the dividing line between lost and saved men.
