"Enoch and the Rapture"
The ascension of Enoch up to heaven has long been thought to be a type of the rapture of God's people at the end of the age.
The following is my response to an email sent to me asking me about when Enoch was born and how it relates to the rapture.

You have a very interesting site; I believe we are in a time when many hidden secrets are being revealed to the body of Christ. Thank you for your work. I feel I could spend hours and hours on your site.
I read your answer to David concerning the rapture, but just as a thought have you calculated the date when Enoch was taken up?
Also as I read your dates, I have trouble being able to follow certain things; what particular corresponding date of the start of the 7 year world wide famine?
Thank you and thanks for all your research and time.
(My response to the above email:)
Greetings!I am not sure what you mean by "which particular corresponding date of the start of the 7 years..."The time frames I use on the website show how that a day represents a year and that from the seven-year famine of Joseph in 1878-1871 BC unto the fall of Israel and Judah are 3.5-years of years (1290 years), and that this intersects literal days (1290 days) at the time of Joseph's famine and the fall of Jerusalem, and that this pattern continues right on into the future with another 1290 + 1290/1260 years, etc.======The date for when Enoch arose to heaven using the max. creation date of 4305 BC (spring), is 3318 BC.4305 BC less Adam to Enoch's ascension equals 3318 BC. He was born 3683 BC.The dates for his birth and death do not appear to be that significant, although from his birth in 3683 BC to his ascension in 3318 BC "in the AD mirror", (that is symbolic AD 3318) are 7000 years, which is an important number in the bible associated with the end of the age, and is similar in pattern to the 3.5 + 3.5-year tribulation period. (See "The BC/AD Mirror".)Moreover, the middle of his life of 365 years (symbolic of a solar year of 365 days) is 182 or 183 years, which was autumn of 3501 BC or spring of 3500 BC, which is exactly half of 7000 to Christ, etc. (All these dates can be forwarded half-a-year as well. For the half-year difference see http://www.1260-1290-days-bible-prophecy.org/bible-chronolgy-1c..html)Hope that helps! (Also see my note at end...)
Gen 5:1This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
Gen 5:2male and female created he them, and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
Gen 5:3And Adam lived a hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth:
Gen 5:4and the days of Adam after he begat Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters.
Gen 5:5And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.
Gen 5:6And Seth lived a hundred and five years, and begat Enosh:
Gen 5:7and Seth lived after he begat Enosh eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters:
Gen 5:8and all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years: and he died.
Gen 5:9And Enosh lived ninety years, and begat Kenan.
Gen 5:10and Enosh lived after he begat Kenan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters:
Gen 5:11and all the days of Enosh were nine hundred and five years: and he died.
Gen 5:12And Kenan lived seventy years, and begat Mahalalel:
Gen 5:13and Kenan lived after he begat Mahalalel eight hundred and forty years, and begat sons and daughters:
Gen 5:14and all the days of Kenan were nine hundred and ten years: and he died.
Gen 5:15And Mahalalel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:
Gen 5:16And Mahalalel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters:
Gen 5:17and all the days of Mahalalel were eight hundred ninety and five years: and he died.
Gen 5:18And Jared lived a hundred sixty and two years, and begat Enoch:
Gen 5:19and Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
Gen 5:20And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died.
Gen 5:21And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:
Gen 5:22and Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:
Gen 5:23and all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:
Gen 5:24and Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
Also note the same figures used here, remembering that a day can equal a year or a thousand years...
Rev 11:11But three and a half days later, God will breathe life into their bodies. They will stand up, and everyone who sees them will be terrified.
Rev 11:12The witnesses then heard a loud voice from heaven, saying, "Come up here." And while their enemies were watching, they were taken up to heaven in a cloud.
Rev 11:13At that same moment there was a terrible earthquake that destroyed a tenth of the city. Seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were frightened and praised the God who rules in heaven.
