Click here to listen to TAKEN, an encouraging fictional story of the life of Enoch. Listen for parallels and be encouraged as you walk by faith. (Please download the files. A transcription is also included for the hearing impaired.)

He was searching for a cure. He found the Creator.  The man called Enoch was TAKEN thousands of years ago because He pleased the Lord. His name Enoch means “dedicated one”.

Genesis 5:23-24 – New King James Version – 23 So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. 24 And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.

The Lord will come again to TAKE all those who please Him as prophesied in His Word:

Hebrews 11:5-6 – New King James Version – 5 By FAITH Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

If millions of people have suddenly disappeared, it is because the Lord took them. They pleased the Lord by accepting the salvation offered through Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Matthew 24:36-44 – New King James Version No One Knows the Day or Hour – 36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

If you were not taken, it is because you were not ready when the Lord came. Being “ready” for the Lord means you accept Him as your Savior who died on the cross for your sins. You admit your sins and repent of them. Repent means you stop doing them.

Romans 6:23 New King James Version – 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Jesus loves you and died to save you, even though you rejected Him. It is NOT TOO LATE. PRAY and RECEIVE FORGIVENESS TODAY. The Lord is waiting on you to call on His Name. Jesus’ blood on the cross cancels every ungodly contract and evil agreement, even in your heart WHEN YOU REPENT AND RENOUNCE THAT SIN. HE IS GOD. HIS WORD IS TRUE AND NOTHING CAN OVERCOME HIS LOVE FOR YOU.

Acts 2:21 Living Bible – 21 But ANYONE WHO ASKS FOR MERCY FROM THE LORD SHALL HAVE IT and shall be saved.’

Pray to the Lord and repent. Ask Jesus to come back and He might. (READ: 2 Chronicles Chapter 30 where King Hezekiah is a pattern for the Lord Jesus Christ, our King. Pay close attention to 2 Chronicles 30:17-23. King Hezekiah gave the people who had not prepared themselves a second chance.)

  • Mark 2:17 New King James Version – 17 When Jesus heard it, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I DID NOT COME TO CALL THE RIGHTEOUS, BUT SINNERS, TO REPENTANCE.”
  • 1 John 1:9 New King James Version – 9 If we confess our sins, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

God the Father is drawing you right now.

John 6:44-45 New King James Version – 44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, ‘And they shall all be taught by God.’ Therefore EVERYONE WHO HAS HEARD AND LEARNED FROM THE FATHER COMES TO ME.

God the Father is yearning for you, His prodigal son.

Luke 15:20-24 New King James Version – 20 “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, HIS FATHER SAW HIM AND HAD COMPASSION, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ 22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. 23 And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; 24 for this MY SON WAS DEAD AND IS ALIVE AGAIN; HE WAS LOST AND IS FOUND.’ And they began to be merry.

If Jesus forgave the Pharisees who mocked Him as He died on the cross, Jesus can forgive you.

Luke 23:34 New King James Version – 34 Then Jesus said, “FATHER FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY DO.”

If Jesus forgave King David, He can forgive you. Pray to God like David prayed.

Psalm 51:9-11 New King James Version – 9 HIDE YOUR FACE FROM MY SINS, And blot out all my iniquities. 10 CREATE IN ME A CLEAN HEART, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. 11 Do not cast me away from Your presence, And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.

If Jesus forgave Saul and gave him a new name–Paul, Jesus can forgive you.

1 Timothy 1:13 New King James Version – 13 although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I OBTAINED MERCY BECAUSE I DID IT IGNORANTLY IN UNBELIEF.

The Lord wants you to repent and be restored.

Ezekiel 18:21-23 Living Bible – 21 But if a wicked person turns away from all his sins and begins to obey my laws and do what is just and right, he shall surely live and not die. 22 All his past sins will be forgotten, and he shall live because of his goodness. 23 “Do you think I like to see the wicked die?” asks the Lord. “Of course not! I ONLY WANT HIM TO TURN FROM HIS WICKED WAYS AND LIVE.

Nothing can separate you from God’s love.

Romans 8:34-39 Living Bible – 34 Who then will condemn us? Will CHRIST? No! For He is the one who died for us and came back to life again for us and IS SITTING AT THE PLACE OF HIGHEST HONOR next to God, PLEADING FOR US THERE IN HEAVEN. 35 Who then can ever keep Christ’s love from us? When we have trouble or calamity, when we are hunted down or destroyed, is it because he doesn’t love us anymore? And if we are hungry or penniless or in danger or threatened with death, has God deserted us? 36 No, for the Scriptures tell us that for his sake we must be ready to face death at every moment of the day—we are like sheep awaiting slaughter; 37 but despite all this, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who loved us enough to die for us. 38 For I am convinced that NOTHING CAN EVER SEPARATE US FROM HIS LOVE. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels won’t, and ALL THE POWERS OF HELL ITSELF CANNOT KEEP GOD’S LOVE AWAY. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, 39 or where we are—high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean—nothing will ever be able to separate us from the love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when he died for us.

You have faith. HOLD ON TO YOUR FAITH. Know that God loves you and has saved you even when you can’t feel anything. Rest in the fact that Jesus never lies and He always keeps His Word.

2 Corinthians 5:7 – For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Do not take the mark of the beast. That mark will be administered in or on the forehead and in (or on) the right hand. That mark will be connected to the right to buy and sell freely. Do not take anything that might be close to it–your soul will be eternally damned if you take it. A powerful political figure will come to power after the rapture and will eventually make this mark mandatory for all people.

Revelation 13:7-9 – New King James Version – 7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every [a]tribe, tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.

Revelation 13:13-18 – New King James Version – 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

Do not take the mark even at the threat of death.

Luke 12:4-7 – Jesus Teaches the Fear of God – 4 “And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. 5 But I will show you whom you should fear: Fear Him who, after He has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I say to you, fear Him!

Revelation 14:9-13 – 9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” 12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. 13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’ ” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.”

Be willing to die for your faith. Do not deny Christ and you can still go to heaven when you die or if you live until the end of the tribulation period when the Lord returns to earth. This terrible time of trouble will last 7 years after the rapture. BE STRONG FOR 7 YEARS AND YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY WITH THE LORD AND BE REUNITIED WITH YOUR LOVED ONES WHO WERE TAKEN.

Revelation 7:13-17 – New King James Version – 13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” 14 And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”
