Supposedly, from what I can remember, Enoch was the man who was taken by God because he walked with God and he found favor in God's Eyes. So God took him and he, Enoch, was no more. 2 other men in The Holy Bible were also 'taken'. Moses, whose body was contended over by Michael and the 'Devil' and also Elijah who was taken up in a The Chariot of God. 3 men were 'taken'. 2 of them while alive and Moses after he had passed. From what I can remember Enoch was a righteous man. He sought The Lord and called upon The Name of The LORD during a time when very few persons were calling upon The Name of The LORD. And from what I can remember, Enoch began spending less time outdoors and more time indoors. After Enoch searched his heart as to the situation of things and how God and himself was part of the large picture that he was seeing, he began to retrieve indoors more often to spend more time in prayer and solitude with God. First it started with once a year, then it moved to every half year, then to every month then to every week then to every day. Soon, if my memory is still accurate, he began to stay indoors daily and his ventures out into the public was, at first, once a day then to once a week then to once a month then to once every 6 months and then to once a year. He made it a point to at least get outdoors once a year just to make sure that life was still going on outside his home. And when he began to spend more time indoors with God and less time with the general public, he began to see public living in a very different light. He began to notice how busy they all were, how unfocused they all were, how easily distracted and how easily entertained they all were. He saw how unacknowledging of God they all were. So this grieved Enoch very much and he brought his concerns to God. It is at this point, I believe, that God began to walk with Enoch and Enoch began to walk with God. Always being outdoors with all the activity that is going on will dull the senses. Sights, smells and hearing will become dulled. Pungent odors will no longer be as pungent, loud noises will no longer be as loud, filthy sights will not be as filthy. And talking and communication between persons will not be seen as unnecessary. People's attitudes and the way they carry themselves will begin to be second nature even to the point of having those ways deemed 'individuality'. And even the most 'common' of them will have a particular style about them that even they might not know they possess. Haircuts, grooming, driving patterns, etc can be seen as unfocused, easily distracted and easily entertained. Their smiles can be given at a whim's notice and their frowns can appear just as quick. Judgments and Rightful discretion is almost as second nature. Soon, they begin getting 'set' in those ways and patterns and behaviors. And soon after, they begin to become unwilling to change their 'daily' ways. The things they see as offensive never gets a chance to have its voice heard and the things which they see as offensive are pushed further and further away from where all the hustle and bustle of public living occurs. Basically, the only thing that changes is their knowledge of how to push certain 'groups' of individuals out of their perimeters. Residing in these sorts of towns and cities can be a very sorrowful experience if you are a sincere believer in Christ Jesus. What amazes me is how they, the other human beings, do not know what the definition of 'Love' and 'Compassion' are.. I guess in a way their daily attempt to push out the unwanted is a hardening of their hearts that is occurring until they fully reach the point of having their heart be as 'stone'. Maybe at that point the only 'voice' they will hear is the voice of monies and its reasonings. Sure there might not be as many public displays of illicit drug use but if it is seen they will be using 'pretty' paraphernalia in pretty clothes and pretty cocaine vials. 'Wholesome' cities and towns are more concerned with keeping wholesomeness within its perimeters rather than monies within their perimeters.
