GOD’S WORD FOR APRIL 10

GOD’S WORD FOR APRIL 10 ~ ~ Isaiah 45:21 ~ ~ “I will give thanks and praise the Lord, with all my heart; I will tell aloud all Your wonders and marvelous deeds.”

Do you ever think about names, other than when a new baby or puppy is born? Today, we don’t seem to put much value in the origin or meaning of names, but many years ago, that’s the only way they named their babies. But in the beginning of time, in the generations after Adam, God put a secret

message in the names of the generations which would be the foundational genetic line of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. The names of the chosen sons who make up first ten generations in that line, from Adam to Noah, (which is to say, from Creation and the fall of man due to sin, to the worldwide flood, when God began again but continued the chosen line) give that message. Remember, men lived hundreds of years in those days, before genetic contamination took hold, –many almost a thousand years, and these were not necessarily first born sons, so the span between generations was often 500 or so years. This message could not be done by any planning of mankind. The Old Testament is full of messages, prophesies, and symbolic events showing the coming Messiah to be Jesus Christ, and that could only have been done supernaturally through the Holy Spirit. The Word of God is multi-faceted, and magnificently written, and wonderful to study!!! It could only have been written by God Himself, and directly to each of us, to draw us to Him for Salvation, and to know Him personally.

Adam means “man”

Seth means “appointed”

Enosh means “mortal”

Kenan means “sorrow”

Mahalalel means “The blessed God”

Jared means “Shall come down”

Enoch means “Teaching”

Methuselah means “His death shall bring”

Lamech means “The despairing”

Noah means “comfort (or rest)”

Put together, it says, “MAN (IS) APPOINTED MORTAL SORROW; (BUT) THE BLESSED GOD SHALL COME DOWN, TEACHING (THAT) HIS DEATH SHALL BRING THE DESPAIRING COMFORT (OR REST)”

Heavenly Father, we thank You and praise You for giving man so many clues, predictions, and messages about the coming Messiah, Your Son Jesus Christ. Now we have the New Testament Word to tell us plainly. Jesus, we thank You and praise You for Your sacrifice for us, as we bow to You and repent of all our sins, known and unknown, understanding and embracing the fact that You died for our sins, and took our punishment. When we accept that fact, and live for You, acknowledging Your Lordship in our individual lives, our sins are forever and totally forgiven. It is not just a head knowledge of You, but a personal relationship and complete submission. Please give understanding to people reading this, and the conviction of their sins, knowing that You know all things, even to our inner thoughts. In Your wonderful name, Jesus, we pray this, knowing that You always intercede for us. Amen

Hebrews 8:10 “For this is the covenant that I will make with (My people) After those days, says the Lord: I will imprint My laws upon their minds [even upon their innermost thoughts and understanding], And engrave them upon their hearts [effecting their regeneration]. And I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”
