Who Am I?

Who am I?

No one among the just has waited longer than I to see God face to face.

I have a mission that has yet to be fulfilled.

I have never eaten meat. For a while I did eat herbs. Now I only eat fruit.

And, I am in perfect health biologically although I am very old.chronologically.

Even the wild animals play before me for my delight..

I have a friend, a just man, who joined me many years after I came to dwell here. We never grow tired praising God.

The weather where I live is always splendid.

I pray all the time and I know the scriptures by heart. They are my constant meditation. My name is written therein.

It has been revealed to me that I must one day preach to the nations and, after I have completed my mission, I will be given the crown of martyrdom.

My soul is always at peace, for God has revealed to me that He is pleased with me.

    Elias (Elijah) the Prophet is my guess. This was fun!

  • Sorry M, try again

  • Alright, time’s up. I am Henoch, the father of Mathusala the oldest man, it is said, who ever lived (969 years). I am older than he, however, and so is Elias, for we are still living, although not in a vale of tears. Elias and I are in the Garden of Eden. We will come to battle anti-christ at the end of the world. I will preach to the gentiles, Elias to the Jews. We will be martyred after three years. It is written of me in Genesis that I ‘walked with God and God took me and I was seen no more.’ (5:23). It is written of me in the Book of Ecclesiasticus, “Henoch pleased God, and was translated into paradise, that he may give repentance to the nations.” (44:16) Saint Paul says of me in his epistles to the Hebrews (11:5): “By faith Henoch was translated, that he should not see death; and he was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had testimony that he pleased God.”
