"They knew God"?

Genesis 5:24
And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.

Hebrews 11:5-6
By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, "and was not found, because God had taken him"; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

YET...
Hebrews 6:4–8 For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened—those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come— and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding him up to public shame. 
(The metaphor)When the ground soaks up the falling rain and bears a good crop for the farmer, it has God’s blessing. But if a field bears thorns and thistles, it is useless. The farmer will soon condemn that field and burn it.

Romans 1:21 For although they knew God, they did not acknowledge / recognize him as God or thank Him nor glorified Him (they did not give credit what credit was due), and they became futile in their thinking (their thoughts), and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Proverbs 3:5-6 The Message
Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all.


Ephesians 1:18
I ask that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know the hope of His calling, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints,

By grace through faith.

All that are led by the spirit of God they are the children of God 

My sheep hear my voice I know them and they follow me. 

John 3:8 New Century Version (NCV)
The wind blows where it wants to and you hear the sound of it, but you don’t know where the wind comes from or where it is going. It is the same with every person who is born from the Spirit.”

Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.

Do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the reunion of your mind. 

Take every thought captive to the Lordship of Christ. 

Pray without ceasing.

Remember...
“All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
But the word of the Lord endures forever.”(1 Peter 1:24-25)
