What can we learn by following the prophet Enoch? We can approach the environment of Heaven if we emulate his city of Zion.

When Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden they went from a world of food and flowers to one of weeds and wickedness. More like what we live in. Worse than that, they no longer walked and talked with Heavenly Father. They and their descendants could pray of course, but how could the Lord let his will be known to many people? He called prophets. The first was our great, great, great, great grandfather Adam.

Adam later was inspired by God to call his great grandson Enoch as a prophet. Enoch wasn’t sure he could do the job. He said, “I don’t speak well. The people hate me, and I am only a lad.” He was 65 years old when he said that.

Probably 65 seemed young to Enoch because some people in those days lived a long time, like hundreds of years. But not everybody lived a long time. Some people lived a short time because wickedness, murder, wars and bad living took them early.

Enoch trusted in the Lord, and became a great prophet. At his word mountains moved, rivers changed their courses, the wicked people, even giants who lived in the land were afraid to attack him and his people. He founded a city that became so righteous that no one was poor, or unloved, or left out. The city became so pure and holy that The Lord took it up to heaven. It will return when Jesus reigns over the earth in the millennium.
