“Hidden” Message in Names

I was watching a film on creation and the presenter made an interesting observation. You may have already heard or seen this but I thought I would share.

The names of the first ten generation of man and their meaning:

  • Adam – Man
  • Seth – Appointed
  • Enos – Mortal
  • Cainan – Sorrow
  • Mahalaleel – The blessed God
  • Jared – Shall come down
  • Enoch – Preaching
  • Methuselah – His death shall bring
  • Lamech – The despairing
  • Noah – Rest
Now put that all together and what do you get?
Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow, (but) the blessed God shall come down preaching (that) His death shall bring the despairing rest.
