What is the lesson from the two was nots; Elijah and Enoch which, it seems the one, Enoch, strode into faith’s hall of fame without nearly the fanfare?
Elijah went up by a whirlwind to heaven.First consider won’t you, how true as Jesus said; the pure in heart “shall see God” (Matthew 5:8). I’m quite certain many wish to hurry onward without questioning that purity. For I’m sure you remember,
(2 Kings 2:11)
Enoch, , was not, for God took him.
through one man sin entered into the world, Now, although I’ve entitled this as though one of the two was not sufficiently introduced, does the scripture have a strong enough resemblance within the limited amount of details concerning Enoch but that he was rewarded a humble existence? What does humility of one and the valor of another have to do with the fall and the contest of purity?
and death through sin, and so death
spread to all men, because all sinned
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
there is none that does good, no, not one.
(Romans 5:12, Romans 3:23, Romans 3:12)
Most of you by now know that the overwhelming response to both why God took them and why the lack of Enoch’s details that they are “not explicitly taught in the Bible” is a smearing of truth. Doesn’t the scripture have right to this as well?
For God is not the author of confusion, but of peaceIf order is what is called for,
1 Corinthians 14:33
Noun - Genitive Feminine Singular
Strong's Greek 181: From akatastatos; instability,
And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets., , and Enoch was a prophet (Jude 1:14), then no one should feel called to advise counter to it, and that would include being subject to that humility. Therein IMO, is why the lack concerning Enoch and therein is why the Holy Spirit instructed us to glean from the more visible 'Was Not' – Elijah.
(1 Corinthians 14:32)
Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed I guess the more powerful mystery here lay in the above question; what does humility of one and the valor of another have to do with the fall and the contest of purity? Well, didn't both Jesus and James separate it for us, one of heart, one of nature?

If I seem to have exceeded in something here, please advise, otherwise offer your insight please!
