7th-Day Advent Bible Ministry Church - Jesus Christ Is Coming Back Soon
Enoch was a true representative of the Remnant of God.
 
 
1. Who made the claim that the Commandments of God cannot be kept perfectly?
 
Ellen G. White says, “Satan was urging upon men the belief that there was no reward for the righteous or punishment for the wicked, and that it was impossible for men to obey the divine statutes.” Patriarchs and Prophets, p.88  
 
2. Did Enoch preach and teach to the people of his time that the commandments of God can be kept perfectly?  
 
Ellen G. White says,Men were taught that it is possible to obey the law of God; that even while living in the midst of the sinful and corrupt, they were able, by the grace of God, to resist temptation, and become pure and holy.”
Patriarchs and Prophets, p.88
 
3. Did Enoch love God and keep His Commandments?
 
Ellen G. White says, “During these earlier years Enoch had loved and feared God and had kept His commandments. He was one of the holy line, the preservers of the true faith”  Patriarchs & Prophets, p.84
 
4. Was the character of Enoch, holy or unholy? Will those who live at the time of Jesus Christ’s return live a holy life like Enoch’s?
 
Ellen G. White says, “The godly character of this prophet represents the state of holiness which must be attained by those who shall be “redeemed from the earth” (Revelation 14:3) at the time of Christ’s Second Advent.” 
Patriarchs and Prophets, pp. 88-89.
 
5. If anyone ever tells you that the Commandments of God cannot be kept perfectly; on whose behalf is that person speaking?
 
Ellen G. White says, "Satan represented to the holy pair that they would be gainers by breaking the law of God. Do we not today hear similar reasoning? Many talk of the narrowness of those who obey God's commandments, while they themselves claim to have broader ideas and to enjoy greater liberty. What is this but an echo of the voice from Eden, "In the day ye eat thereof"--transgress the divine requirement--"ye shall be as gods"? Patriarchs and Prophets, p.55 
 
Whoever tells you that the commandments cannot be kept perfectly is speaking on behalf of Satan. Satan was the one that said to Eve, “You can disobey God and still not die."
 
Indirectly, Satan is saying - "Eve, you don't have to live sinless. You can break the law by eating the forbidden fruit, but you will stil have eternal life because you won't die, you shall be as gods." - Genesis 3:1-5
