Good Morning Freeborn,
May you be feeling better. I have been reading again. This time very slowly, so I could see if somethings that Enoch said could be lined up with scripture.
But I ran into alot more things that I have been not seeing for a while.
The first question that I have is: Did you know that Abraham and Isaac were a type and shadow of the sacrifice of Jesus from GOD? Well, what made me think of this is this verse:
22:7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
22:8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
<!–EndFragment–>Ok? First of all, Issac asked about the lamb for the burnt offering! Does anyone not understand that Jesus is called the Lamb of GOD? Proof?
1:36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
<!–EndFragment–>Does anyone see that when Abraham said in Gen. 22:8 that “GOD will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering”? That lamb that God was going to provide HIMSELF was JESUS. Now from again what Abraham said, it proves also what GOD said to Abimelech in a dream when Abraham was in Gerar. God said that Abraham was a prophet. And I did not see that before. So, I did learn something new from reading the other night. Here is the verse proving that Abraham was a prophet of GOD.
20:3 But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife.
20:4 But Abimelech had not come near her: and he said, Lord, wilt thou slay also a righteous nation?
20:5 Said he not unto me, She is my sister? and she, even she herself said, He is my brother: in the integrity of my heart and innocency of my hands have I done this.
20:6 And God said unto him in a dream, Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.
20:7 Now therefore restore the man his wife; for he is a prophet, and he shall pray for thee, and thou shalt live: and if thou restore her not, know thou that thou shalt surely die, thou, and all that are thine.
Ok, Now that we got that out of the way. Now let us move to another subject, which is the meaning of the name Methuselah. The Hebrew meaning of his name means: “He shall die before the flood or deluge.” Now, you know that Enoch did name his son this? So in naming his son, he was prophezing of the flood that was to come in Noah’s day. Enoch is truly a great person. For the people that come here and read, Enoch was the son of Jared. Jared was 162 years old when he had Enoch. Please read Gen. 5:18.
I have some other things to discuss, but I must re read it again…
Have a Blessed Day.
