Dinner Topics for Monday
Enoch, Zion and the Holy Spirit
Walk with Me
Behold, my Spirit is upon you. (Moses 6:34)
And it came to pass that Enoch journeyed in the land, among the people; and as he journeyed, the Spirit of God descended out of heaven, and abode upon him. And he heard a voice from heaven. (Moses 6:26-27)
What is it like to hear a voice from heaven? What is that voice like, and how can we hear it? Elijah learned that the Lord was not in a great and strong wind, not in an earthquake, not in a fire, but in a still small voice.
So this still small voice said to Enoch, “Enoch, my son, prophesy unto this people, and say unto them—Repent, for thus saith the Lord: I am angry with this people, and my fierce anger is kindled against them; for their hearts have waxed hard, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes cannot see afar off.”(Moses 6:27)
The Lord spoke to Enoch, because Enoch heard Him, and the people did not. What can cause people’s hearts to wax hard, and their ears to become dull of hearing, and their eyes unable to see? The Lord is not in the shriek of cell phones, not in the babble of radio, not in the din of TV, not in the raucous revelry of M-TV, not in the sensational imagery of electronic media, not in the roar of the crowd, but in a still small voice.
And the Lord told Enoch, “Say unto this people: Choose ye this day, to serve the Lord God who made you. Behold my Spirit is upon you . . . and thou shalt abide in me, and I in you; therefore walk with me.(Moses 6:33-34)
And Enoch walked with God, and built a great city, and it was called Zion.
And from that time forth there were wars and bloodshed among them; but the Lord came and dwelt with his people, and they dwelt in righteousness.(Moses 7:16)
And all the days of Zion, in the days of Enoch, were three hundred and sixty-five years. And Enoch and all his people walked with God, and he dwelt in the midst of Zion; and it came to pass that Zion was not, for God received it up into his own bosom; and from thence went forth the saying, ZION IS FLED. (Moses 7:68-69)
