Enoch, a prototype for the believer

And Enoch walked with God ... And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. - Genesis 5:22a, 23, and 24 (KVJ)
Enoch was a prototype of the believer. Enoch walked with God, and God took him to heaven, just like that; no death, no suffering, just straight to heaven.
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. - Hebrews 11:5 (KJV)
We, too, walk with God. Being in Christ we know, and have the inward testimony, God is pleased with us and He takes us, just like that into Christ's Kingdom; no waiting until we die, straight into the Heavenlies to be seated with Jesus
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: - Colossians 1:12-13 (KJV)
