“And so great was the faith of Enoch that he led the people of God, and their enemies came to battle against them; and he spake the word of the Lord, and the earth trembled.” —Moses 7:13
“Let’s go back first to the young man Enoch. As Enoch journeyed in the land, the voice of the Lord came unto him and told him to prophesy and call the people to repentance. Powers would be given to Enoch if he would but follow this great lead and accept the call. Enoch accepted the call.” —Vaughn J. Featherstone
