The genealogy from Adam to Noah reveiled


The five first books in the Bible is called the Torah, which means Guidance / Teaching. If we study the Torah and the rest of the Bible, we can find Jesus everywhere. Not only in the New Testament. In fact, one of Jesus names is The Word of God (Revelation 19:13: He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.) Everything Jesus did, he did to fulfill the scriptures. When Man sinned in the garden, God had already a plan to restore EVERYTHING through his son, the Messiah. And God reveals this very early in the Bible. In the story of Abraham and Isak, In the story of Joseph who suffers for his brothers in Egypt, The whole bible is full of Jesus! He said to his desiples after the resurrection: This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.” 45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.  (Luke 24:44-45)

Even the names in Genesis have meanings that when put together from the blood line from Adam to Noah tells the Gospel.

(Genesis 5:3-29:) When Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, in his own image; and he named him Seth.  After Seth was born, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters.  Altogether, Adam lived a total of 930 years, and then he died.

When Seth had lived 105 years, he became the father[ of Enosh.  After he became the father of Enosh, Seth lived 807 years and had other sons and daughters.  Altogether, Seth lived a total of 912 years, and then he died.
 When Enosh had lived 90 years, he became the father of Kenan.  After he became the father of Kenan, Enosh lived 815 years and had other sons and daughters.  Altogether, Enosh lived a total of 905 years, and then he died.
 When Kenan had lived 70 years, he became the father of Mahalalel.  After he became the father of Mahalalel, Kenan lived 840 years and had other sons and daughters.  Altogether, Kenan lived a total of 910 years, and then he died.
 When Mahalalel had lived 65 years, he became the father of Jared.  After he became the father of Jared, Mahalalel lived 830 years and had other sons and daughters.  Altogether, Mahalalel lived a total of 895 years, and then he died.
 When Jared had lived 162 years, he became the father of Enoch.  After he became the father of Enoch, Jared lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters.  Altogether, Jared lived a total of 962 years, and then he died.
 When Enoch had lived 65 years, he became the father of Methuselah.  After he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked faithfully with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters.  Altogether, Enoch lived a total of 365 years.  Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.
 When Methuselah had lived 187 years, he became the father of Lamech. 26 After he became the father of Lamech, Methuselah lived 782 years and had other sons and daughters.  Altogether, Methuselah lived a total of 969 years, and then he died.
 When Lamech had lived 182 years, he had a son.  He named him Noah and said, “He will comfort us in the labor and painful toil of our hands caused by the ground the Lord has cursed.”

  • Adam -Man
  • Seth -Appointed
  • Enosh – Mortal
  • Kenan – Sorrow
  • Mahalalel – The blessed God
  • Jared – Shall come down
  • Enoch – Teaching
  • Methuselah – His death shall bring
  • Lamech – Despairing
  • Noah – Comfort and rest

Put those meanings into a complete sentence and you get:

Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow,(but) the blessed God shall come down teaching. His death shall bring (the) despairing comfort and rest.

It doesn’t stop there, here are the names of Israels 12 tribes, in the order listed in Revelation chapter 7, together with the meaning of each name:

1. Judah =”I will praise the Lord”
2. Reuben = “He has looked on me”
3. Gad = “Granted good fortune”
4. Asher = “Happy am I”
5. Naphtali = “My wrestling”
6. Manasseh = “Making me to forget”
7. Simeon = “God hears me”
8. Levi = “Joined to me”
9. Issachar =”Purchased Me”
10. Zebulun = “Dwelling”
11. Joseph = “God will add to me”
12. Benjamin = “Son of His right hand”

Now notice what happens when the meaning of the names are combined, in the same order, into a paragraph:

“I will praise the Lord (for) He has looked on me (and) granted good fortune. Happy am I (because) my wrestling (God is) making me to forget. God hears me (and is) joined to me. He has purchased me (a)dwelling. God will add to me (the) Son of His right hand.”

We can rejoice and be glad. God is in control. He has always been.
