Replay of Genesis 5

If you want to cheat death?  If you want to skip the consequences of sin, then the 5th chapter of Genesis provides the key.  As Moses lists the genealogy of the people from Adam to Noah, the 7th man, Enoch has an interesting epitaph.  It says, He walked with God and then was no more for God took him.  Enoch never experienced death because he walked with God.  He walked in faith and in proclamation.  He declared God’s hatred of sin and he trusted in God to redeem him.  These twin ideas are essential for anyone who wishes to live life and skip death – walk with the Lord Jesus in faith and confess his name and his message to the world.
