The book of Genesis introduces us to several characters. Our focus of study for this series will be on two characters by name Enoch and Noah. The scriptural foundations for the teachings will be from Genesis 5:22 (NKJV) and Genesis 6:9 (NKJV).
Genesis 5:22 (NKJV)
After he begot Methuselah, Enoch walked with God three hundred years, and had sons and daughters.
Genesis 6:9 (NKJV)
This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.
The biblical Hebrew meaning of the name Enoch is “dedicated” and the biblical Hebrew meaning of the name Noah is “rest”. Both Enoch and Noah are descendants from Cain’s genealogy. However, these two individuals particularly stand out because the bible states that “they walked with God”.
That phrase alone tells us what they did. A decision was made that left a lasting impact in their generation. Therefore, in this series we’ll examine the outcomes of their decision of “walking with God”, how it benefited them and their generation, and how we can learn from them.
One thing stands out; A life dedicated to walking with God will receive rest on every side.
