    • Paul often used the term 'Jews' referring to the general sense of the descendents of Abraham through Isaac and Jacob. There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. 
      (Rom 2:9-10)
        I believe that is the way the term is being used here.
    • The same Greek word is rendered "carried over" in Acts 7:16. Jacob died and his body was "carried over" -- translated -- to Sychem where he was buried. Moses was also translated – God took Moses from the people after which he died and was buried by God. Examining this verse fact by fact, we notice the Enoch had faith and was translated. This translation was on condition of faith. What translation is a condition of faith in scripture? Colossians 1:13. The Father "hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son." Christ has already translated his saints, I’m translated from the power of darkness into the kingdom of Jesus already! I am not part of this world, though I live in it. Enoch lived 65 years in darkness, God removed Enoch from the ways of the world and lived 300 years according to God -- This is the spiritual translation. the physical translation was where God removed Enoch from society completely so that he was not found. What death does Enoch escape from? 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. (Hebrews 11:5) It’s the same death all Christians escape as taught by Jesus. John 8:51 the Messiah said, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death" John 11:26, "Whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die" -- or "shall not die forever." This is called the second death. Enoch had faith. He believed God and walked with God obeying Him. In keeping the sayings of God, Enoch kept the sayings of the Jesus too; because Jesus did not speak of himself, but spoke what the Father commanded him (John 14:10). Thus Enoch met the conditions so that he should not see death and that death is the second death shall never touch Enoch, because of his faith and obedience. That is what the Holy Spirit does not want us to be in any doubt of.
    • The last trumpet is the trumpet of God; its His  trumpet. Then the Lord will appear over them,
      And His arrow will go forth like lightning;
      And the Lord God will blow the trumpet,
      And will march in the storm winds of the south.  Zechariah 9:14
    • Question: "What are the twelve tribes of Israel?"

      Answer: The twelve tribes of Israel came from the twelve sons of Israel. “Israel” is the name that God gave Jacob (Genesis 32:28). His twelve sons are Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, and Benjamin (Genesis 35:23-26; Exodus 1:1–4; 1 Chronicles 2:1–2). When the tribes inherited the Promised Land, Levi’s descendants did not receive a territory for themselves (Joshua 13:14). Instead, they became priests and had several cities scattered throughout all of Israel. Joseph’s tribe was divided in two—Jacob had adopted Joseph’s two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, essentially giving Joseph a double portion for his faithfulness in saving the family from famine (Genesis 47:11–12). This means the tribes who received territory in the Promised Land were Reuben, Simeon, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Benjamin, Ephraim, and Manasseh. In some places in Scripture, the tribe of Ephraim is referred to as the tribe of Joseph (Numbers 1:32–33).

      After King Solomon died, Israel split into two kingdoms. Judah, to the south, included Judah, Simeon, and Benjamin. The other tribes combined to make the kingdom of Israel in the north. Israel was destroyed by the Assyrians, and most of the Israelites were either killed or deported; the Israelites who remained most likely integrated with the kingdom of Judah.

      Jesus was from Judah, Paul was from Benjamin, and John the Baptist was a Levite, but, since the diaspora in A.D. 70, identifying the tribe of a modern Jew is a little more difficult. That doesn't mean that the tribal divisions are irrelevant. During the tribulation, when most of the world has abandoned God and is following the Antichrist, 144,000 Jews will be sealed by God. This number comprises 12,000 from each tribe. So, even if we don’t know who is in what tribe, God has kept track. The tribes are listed again in Revelation 7:5-8, but they are not the same tribes that were given land in Joshua. Manasseh is there, and Ephraim (under Joseph’s name). But instead of Dan, Levi is included. No explanation is given as to why. http://www.gotquestions.org/twelve-tribes-Israel.html
