"And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of
the Son of Man: they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they
were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the
flood came and destroyed them all." Luke 17:26,27
"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first." 2 Thessalonians 2:3
"But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived."
2 Timothy 3:13
Just as only a remnant was delivered from the flood, so only a remnant will be delivered from the coming judgement.
"For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it." Matthew 7:14
And we know some of what Enoch preached:
"And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these [ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, v4], saying, Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly acts of wickedness, and of every harsh word which ungodly sinners have spoken against him." Jude 14,15
"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. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:5,6
How did Enoch please God? By faith - he believed and acted on what God revealed to Him. But beware of bringing your own works like Cain: "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." Matthew 7:21-23
"Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments? and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy." Revelation 3:4
"Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep (die), but we shall be all changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye. 1 Corinthians 15:51,52
