strtoupper('“T')here is a Place Prepared for You in the Mansions of My Father”

Enos felt, as had his father Jacob, that his life had been hard. He longed for a day of rest. He said he would indeed enjoy the respite which would come when he was again united with his redeemer. He said he looked forward to the day when his sick body which was then hastening toward the trauma of death would put on immortality and stand before God to be judged.

Enos said he expected to see the face of the Lord with pleasure and hear him say that Enos had a place prepared among the mansions of the Father. This concept of heavenly mansions is not found in our Old Testament. It is mentioned for the first time in John 14:2.

Thus we leave Enos -- a deeply repentant man who had become a great prophet.
