Seek and Find
This page is for those who are seeking a deeper meaning from their Bible study. Writings on this page will go beneath the surface of just the meaning of the simple words and show you the secrets hidden in the Bible that translate through Hebrew text, names and numbers. There are no accidents with God. God is order - and He is amazing!
Every name in the Bible has a meaning and will relate to the text or message. Most are Hebrew names because we are dealing with the Hebrew people. When a Greek name appears, it also has a meaning. The meanings of the names have significance to the life of that person or the story he is in, or telling.
There is a rule of "firsts" in the Bible. Anytime something is listed for the first time, it is significant. The first "begats" are no exception. In Genesis 5 is listed the lineage from Adam to Noah. Let's translate the names, in order of appearance: Adam = man, Seth = appointed, Enosh = mortal, Kenan = sorrow, Mahalalel = God's splendor, Jared = descended, Enoch = teacher, Methuselah = His death will bring, Lamech = dispairing, Noah = rest. Now, let's read what the names translate: "Man was appointed mortal sorrow. God's splendor descends as teacher. His death will bring despairing rest." Here, we have a message about the future coming of Christ for our redemption.
The word "Egypt" translates in Hebrew as "stress". How interesting if you replace the name of Egypt with the word "stress" every time you read it. Then, take a little time to meditate on how we are told throughout the Bible to "come out of Egypt". Stress is a killer in our world today.
