My beloved child…many of My children have been deceived by false prophets into believing they can come to Me with an “Aladdin’s lamp faith” whereby their “great faith” that I will most certainly grant their wish becomes My command to do so. They have been sadly misled into presuming that their so called “faith” is what moves the hand of God, rather than My Own will. [Father God…Ps 33:6, 9-11]
** **, greatly beloved, by faith My servant Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and he was not found, because God translated him: for he hath had witness borne to him that before his translation he had been well-pleasing unto God: and without faith it is impossible to be well-pleasing unto Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that seek after Him. [Heb 11:5-7 ASV] Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred into Heaven, with the result that he did not see death; he was not found, because God had translated him. For even before he was taken to Heaven, he had witness borne to him, that testimony still being on record, to the effect that he pleased God. Now without faith it is impossible to please Him at all. For he who would come to God must necessarily believe that God exists, and that He also is a rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him out. [Heb 11:5-7]
First Abel, then Enoch
Beloved child…the sacrifice of faith illustrated by My servant Abel is the entrance to the life of faith. Faith is the primary prerequisite to gain entrance into the Holy of Holies and the abiding Presence of God. My servant Enoch shows you that the walk of faith brings the blessing of a life of unbroken fellowship with God in the Holy of Holies. In Enoch you see Christ My Son glorified and have an abiding life in the Holy of Holies…the walk with God, the Living One. If with Abel you have drawn nigh to God in the death of Christ My Son and in your own death to self…this is the root of the tree. If with Enoch you have given yourself to walk with God, in His Presence and good pleasure…this is the tree growing from the root.
The Enoch blessing
Enoch shows how faith conquers death; you see the life that never dies…he does not see death. The Enoch blessing is the walk with God, the Living One…the life of unbroken fellowship with God in the Holy of Holies of His Presence.
Enoch teaches you three things about faith
1] Root of faith: First: he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that seek after Him. The root of faith is a hunger for God; it believes that I AM; it keeps your heart open towards Me; it bows in humility and hope for Me to make Myself known; it willingly sacrifices self unto death, seeking fellowship with God in the Holy of Holies. To know God, to see Me in everything and everywhere, in your daily life to be conscious of My Presence so that you always walk with Me…this is the life that faith lives, My child. Faith can, and does, walk with God!
2] Reward of Faith: Secondly, the reward of faith is that you become well-pleasing to God: before his translation Enoch had been well-pleasing unto God: and without faith it is impossible to be well-pleasing unto Him. Faith is the absolute surrender unto God. Faith honors God by acknowledging and seeking My Presence, by a child-like dependence that expects everything from Me alone, by a child-like trust that finds its home and resting place resting place in Me alone. Faith gives Me My place and My Glory; faith wills what God wills; faith lets God have My Own way, and makes Me ALL in all. Faith is infinitely well-pleasing to Me.
3] Witness of faith: Thirdly, faith knows that it pleases God: Enoch had witness borne to him that he had been well-pleasing unto God. The Holy Spirit brings down out of that Holy of Holies within the veil, as an actual reality, the Kingdom of Heaven into My child’s heart, so that the Presence of God, and the Father’s delight in My Son, and the Father’s love now shed abroad in your heart, become your every day experience and consciousness. To all who seek and receive and yield to My Holy Spirit, in His full indwelling and witness, faith receives the witness that you are well-pleasing to God.
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
He walks with me and He talks with me:
