Bible Commentary for Genesis 5:24

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 5:24

5:24 He was not, for God took him - That is, as it is explained, #Heb 11:5|, he was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him. But why did God take him so soon? Surely because the world, which was now grown corrupt, was not worthy of him. Because his work was done, and done the sooner for his minding it so closely. He was not, for God took him - He was not any longer in this world: it was not the period of his being, but of his being here. He was not found; so the apostle explains it from the seventy; not found by his friends, who sought him, as the sons of the prophets sought Elijah, #2Kings 2:17|. God took him body and soul to himself in the heavenly paradise, by the ministry of angels, as afterwards he took Elijah. He was changed, as those saints shall be that will be found alive at Christ's second coming.

Discussion for Genesis 5:24

  • Fred Scanlan on Genesis 5:24
    And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of Antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducee.Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. I have taken these scriptures as they appear before me as I read other comments. The anti Christ will deceive the very elect!

    True Fred, The gates of hell will not prevail against the Lord Jesus's bride, the True Church of God. However there may be members who crept in unawares. Members of this Body need to prove first each others repentance experiences and then their walk in Christ whether it has the fruits of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, Spirit which is also His Holy Spirit that guides the whole Church and individual born again members in His Holy and undefiled ways, with love and mercy and grace. All made possible by the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary in and on the cross of suffering for our sins so that we as souls can find redemption from our dead works that will have only have lead us to eternal separation, death and hell in the eternal lake of fire reserved for Satan and the fallen angels. This place, this Hell has no pull on the saved believing soul, and this same soul in reasonable service should be compelled to warn others by living, preaching the Word and Truth of the Gospel of Christ Jesus or Savior and friend. Why this Gospel is being made more complicated to where children of this earth cannot come to Jesus is of the anti-Christ.

  • Andy G van den Berg on Genesis 5:24

    Please read 1 Cor. 2:14 and John 8:43-45. Both readings will explain why you have such a difficult time understanding our testimony, which is of God (Cor. 2:1).

    Regarding our revelations, which are from God also, we invite you to read: Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:12,16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1.

    Google the title of the book and you will find us.

    In His Service.

    To Andy, The Gospel is not for the purpose of read and repent and repeat like you would have many us to do. Please provide us your personal experience on how the revelation changed your soul from a sinner to a saved soul. Andy, just because in your old state you saw things likely the exact same scriptures that you are quoting incorrectly and in your new state you see scriptures correctly tells your readers nothing. Regarding the Harlot, she will aways be a Harlot, avoid her street. In time I will try to order your book to try to understand you better since you only repeat here what you won't say.

    I must be missing something. What happened to Cain? I can't find where he died or was killed.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Genesis 5:24
    Cain lived to a ripe old age. He was likely killed in a fist fight. It's in Genesis.
  • Pierre Michael Hutagalung - in Reply on Genesis 5:24
    Look at chapter 4, read slowly. you'll find it .
  • T - in Reply on Genesis 5:24
    This answer is not given in the Bible. Only through rabbinical or extrabiblical literature.

    Some believe he was accidentally killed by a blind man who was hunting, while others believe a stone house fell upon him.

    In terms of the Bible we are left to wonder as he was sent into endless wander.
  • Stanjett on Genesis 5:24
    Jesus did ascend up to Heaven. But the rest of us that dies before His return goes to a place called paradise. This paradise is a place where we wait until the end of time. We can't go to Heaven until we are judged, which we will be for all things good or bad. Reward will be given out according to how you lived your life. Heaven is not a commie place. We all don't get the same rewards. I think it was Paul who said strive for the best rewards. I don't care much for rewards myself, I just want to get there. I'll sweep out the stables if so assigned.
  • Melva on Genesis 5:24
    I believe on it. Where was he taken. Also when you read John 3:13. How does it apply?
