The LORD JESUS said:

Matthew 7:13-14

King James Version

13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: 

for wide is the gate, 

and broad is the way, 

that leadeth to destruction, 

and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, 

and narrow is the way, 

which leadeth unto life, 

and few there be that find it.

Are you born again?

Have you heard about it?

Have you been converted?

If not, what are your apprehensions?

Do you know it's a good day to be born again now?

Don't vacillate.

Surrender to GOD.

Surrender to His greater knowledge.

Get to know the CROSS.

Where the LORD JESUS died.

Get to know why He died.

This is the narrow road we take.

The narrow gate we enter.

Where JESUS promises us ETERNAL LIFE.

But you must believe in the LORD.

Acts 16:31

King James Version

31 And they said, 

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, 

and thou shalt be saved, 

and thy house.

Acts 4:12

King James Version

12 Neither is there salvation in any other: 

for there is none other name under heaven 

given among men, 

whereby we must be saved.

Psalm 62:1-2

King James Version

62 Truly my soul waiteth upon God: 

from him cometh my salvation.

2 He only is my rock and my salvation; 

he is my defence; 

I shall not be greatly moved.

Why would you not want to walk that narrow path?

And enter that narrow gate?

When past that is JESUS.

Welcoming you in His arms.

The things of the world will destroy us.

But JESUS will save us.

Through His WORD.

Through His leadership.

Live by the Bible.

A born again is instructed by the SPIRIT of GOD.

Never again will you lose your way.

SPIRIT teaches us about JESUS.

For He is the WAY back to GOD.

His is the only path to take.

Let's all be with JESUS, during the RAPTURE:

1 Thessalonians 4:17

King James Version

17 Then we which are alive and remain 

shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, 

to meet the Lord in the air: 

and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

TRANSLATING "translated"


Hebrews 11:5

King James Version

5 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.

This is a very curious verse.

What did it mean to be "translated"?

Who was Enoch?

Scripture tells us more:

Hebrews 11:5

Amplified Bible

5 By faith [that pleased God] Enoch was caught up and taken to heaven so that he would not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found because God had taken him; for even before he was taken [to heaven], he received the testimony [still on record] that he had walked with God and pleased Him.

Hebrews 11:5

Amplified Bible, Classic Edition

5 Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven, so that he did not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found, because God had translated him. For even before he was taken to heaven, he received testimony [still on record] that he had pleased and been satisfactory to God.

Hebrews 11:5

Christian Standard Bible

5 By faith Enoch was taken away, and so he did not experience death. He was not to be found because God took him away.[a] For before he was taken away, he was approved as one who pleased God.

Hebrews 11:5

Common English Bible

5 By faith Enoch was taken up so that he didn’t see death, and he wasn’t found because God took him up.[a] He was given approval for having pleased God before he was taken up.

Hebrews 11:5

Complete Jewish Bible

5 By trusting, Hanokh was taken away from this life without seeing death — “He was not to be found, because God took him away” — for he has been attested as having been, prior to being taken away, well pleasing to God

Hebrews 11:5

Contemporary English Version

5  Enoch had faith and did not die. He pleased God, and God took him up to heaven. This is why his body was never found.

Hebrews 11:5

Disciples’ Literal New Testament

5 By faith Enoch was removed[a], so as not to see death: “And he was not found because God removed him” [Gen 5:24]. For before the removal, he has been attested to have pleased God.

Hebrews 11:5

Easy-to-Read Version

5 Enoch was carried away from this earth, so he never died. The Scriptures tell us that before he was carried off, he was a man who pleased God. Later, no one knew where he was, because God had taken Enoch to be with him. This all happened because he had faith.

Hebrews 11:5

Expanded Bible

5 It was by faith that Enoch was taken to heaven so he would not ·die [experience/L see death]. He could not be found, because God had taken him away [Gen. 5:22–24]. Before he was taken, ·the Scripture says that he was [L he was commended as] a man who truly pleased God.

Hebrews 11:5

Good News Translation

5 It was faith that kept Enoch from dying. Instead, he was taken up to God, and nobody could find him, because God had taken him up. The scripture says that before Enoch was taken up, he had pleased God.

Hebrews 11:5-6

J.B. Phillips New Testament


5-6 It was because of his faith that Enoch was promoted to the eternal world without experiencing death. He disappeared from this world because God promoted him, and before that happened his reputation was that “he pleased God”. And without faith it is impossible to please him. The man who approaches God must have faith in two things, first that God exists and secondly that it is worth a man’s while to try to find God.

Hebrews 11:5

Living Bible

5 Enoch trusted God too, and that is why God took him away to heaven without dying; suddenly he was gone because God took him. Before this happened God had said[a] how pleased he was with Enoch.

Hebrews 11:5

New Living Translation

5 It was by faith that Enoch was taken up to heaven without dying—“he disappeared, because God took him.”[a] For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who pleased God.

Yehudim in Moshiach 11:5

Orthodox Jewish Bible

5 By Emunah Chanoch was taken up, was translated, not to see mavet, V’EINENNU KI LAKACH OTO ELOHIM ("and he was not, because G-d took him [up]" Gn 5:24). Before Chanoch was raptured in his aliyah l’Shomayim, he received solemn eidus (testimony) that he had been pleasing to Hashem.

In SUMMARY, being "translated" by GOD means:

caught up and taken to heaven

transferred to heaven

taken away

taken up

taken away from this life

God took him up to heaven


carried away from this earth

taken to heaven

taken up to God

promoted to the eternal world

God took him away to heaven

taken up to heaven


That being that, Enoch was raptured by GOD.
