    Translation of Enoch and Elijah

    Instances are recorded of persons in ancient times being translated to heaven without tasting death. Of Enoch, the seventh from Adam, it is said, he “walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” 42Genesis 5:24. “By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.” 43Hebrews 11:5.GSAM 48.2

    Again, as Elijah and Elisha were walking together, “it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more.” 442 Kings 2:11, 12.GSAM 48.3

    Enoch prophesied of Christ’s coming as the judge of all the earth, in these words: “Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.” 45Jude 14, 15.GSAM 48.4
