Did Enoch Walk to Heaven?

Did Enoch walk to Heaven?
Or was it the fact that God sent for him
And had him drawn up there?

And when they built that tower
With the aim of getting up there themselves,
How did that Go?

And did Elijah get up to Heaven on his own?
Or was it not God who sent for him,
And had him drawn up there?

Call me crazy, but it’s starting to seem to me
That no one can go to Jesus in heaven
Unless the Father enables him.


41 At this the Jews there began to grumble about him because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” 42 They said, “Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, ‘I came down from heaven’?”

43 “Stop grumbling among yourselves,” Jesus answered.

44 “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day.”

John 6:44. NIV.

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.

John 14:2. NIV

So many want to make the first passage above about “conversion” or “salvation experiences”, but what if it’s Jesus saying that you can’t travel to Heaven on your own, and need God to have you drawn up there?
