1 This is the written account of the descendants of Adam. When God created human beings, he made them to be like himself.

2 He created them male and female, and he blessed them and called them “human.”

4 After the birth of Seth, Adam lived another 800 years, and he had other sons and daughters.

5 Adam lived 930 years, and then he died.

16 After the birth of Jared, Mahalalel lived another 830 years, and he had other sons and daughters.

17 Mahalalel lived 895 years, and then he died.

How much simpler it must have been. With the ability to live for almost a century and never fathering children for hundreds of years how their days must have passed without event and minimal drama. And yet, with so much passing of time that had little significance, there was a man who learned to bring significance to each day by making it a walk with God. For him there was a transcending discovered to completely escape all the passing of earthly time and go right into the time zone of eternity. It was by how he walked in the timeline he was given here that he was able to circumvent the commonly extended portion of earth life and get right on to what lies beyond.
Though Enoch is among the very few to experience a departure from the earth apart from death, there is yet a way for all to walk in their given time here in such a way that a transition is made from the confines of this life to what significance lies beyond. There is a way to walk in the Spirit and be separated completely from what the world would expect and demand. In each step, life can be lived for eternity rather that for these things that will perish and pass away here.
