Just a short message today, but I'd like to share something really cool I recently learned from a guy named Trey Smith. Those of us who are true believers in Jesus, know the Bible is the written Word of God. Everything in it is there for a reason, even all the mundane details we find in the Old Testament. Numerology scholars have discovered magnificent patterns of numbers in the text, Chuck Missler, for one, which prove that no one else but God could have designed the Bible. I won't go into all that, but I thought I'd share this one thing that really blessed me and increased my faith. These are the descendants from Adam all the way to Noah and the flood. You may know that names mean a great deal to ancient peoples. Names held meaning. They were not given to children lightly.
Anyway, taking that into account, check out the meanings of the names from Adam to Noah!
Adam = Man
Seth = Appointed
Enosh = mortal or human
Kenan = Sorrow
Mahalaleel = The blessed God
Jared = shall come down or shall descend
Enoch = Teaching
Methuselah = His death shall bring
Lamech = the despairing
Noah = rest and comfort
Cool, eh? Here we see Jesus and His ministry spelled out thousands of years before He was born!
May that thought bring you peace today and increase your faith. Have a great week!
