The Flood Judgement
Enoch was a prophet, and his father built a city and named it, Enoch, after his son. Enoch had a son named Irad. The meaning of Irad could mean two
things, City of Witness or Fugitive On A Rebound.
Now, Enoch was a prophet(Jude1:14-15), and his son's name is City of Witness(Enoch). Enoch was blessed with another son and when this son was born
Enoch was given a vision concerning the flood. Enoch named him Methuselah. Methuselah comes from the root muth
that means death and from
which means to bring. The name Methuselah then means "his death shall bring."
Methuselah's life became a living prophecy and a testament to God's mercy with us, and it is fitting that Methuselah is the oldest person spoken of
in the Bible.
With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand
slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance (Second Peter 3:8-9)
And of course the same year Methuselah died the flood came.
I could spend the time breaking down the etymology of each name, but to save me some time I am just going to list the names and their English counter
Names below broken down
Mahalalel- The Blessed God
Jared- shall come down
Methuselah- his death shall bring
Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow (but) the Blessed god shall come down teaching (that) his death shall bring (the) despairing rest.
Gods plan has been laid out since the beginning my friends. He is coming soon.
