"Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judah and his brethren;
And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;
And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;
And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
And Jesse begat David the king; "
Now let's take the names and look at their meaning. As we do this, let the Spirit lead you and allow him to speak.
Abraham: father of a multitude
Isaac: he laughs
Jacob: heel catcher
Judah: the praised one
Pharez: a breach, division or rupture, broken through
Esrom: enclosed, Dart of joy, division of a song
Eram: high, paradise, landmark marking the correct direction
Aminadab: one of the princes people, the kinsman
Naasson: enchanter, one who seeks or reveals knowledge of the future or the unknown by supernatural means.
Salmon: raiment or garment, that holds wholeness or peacefulness.
Boaz: in him is strength
Obed: serving or servant, bondage
Jesse: wealthy man, husband
Put together, could this message mean.
"The Father, of many, laughs at the heel catcher. The Praised One has broken through.
Is God, our Father, laughing at Satan, as referenced in Genesis 3:15, because the Promised Messiah has arrived?
"Enclosed, but bursting out in joy, to mark the correct direction to Paradise."
Is this a reference to the Messianic earthly arrival through the womb of a woman, pointing the way to salvation?
"A Royal Kinsmen, the one who reveals knowledge of the future and the unknown, by supernatural means."
Is this referencing to the Messiah as a Son of Man, with supernatural abilities?
"A clothing that holds wholeness or peace."
Is this a reference to the Messiah being a covering of our sins, resulting in our eternal peace and completeness with God?
"In Him is Strength, an obedient servant, a Man/Husband of the Beloved."
Finally, does this mean that the Messiah is strong enough to be completely obedient until death, resulting in him being the beloved Bridegroom of all believers?
I think you know my answer to all these questions, what do you say?
Every time I see one of these messages, I am awestruck at how amazing God is. Why am I surprised? Shouldn't we expect this from a supernatural God?
