969 A.D.:  His Death Shall Bring!!

  Methuselah was the longest lived of all men mentioned in the Bible.  969 years old when he died.  I've read (outside of the Bible) that when Methusaleh died, just then the Great Flood occurred.  Actually, just then they entered the ark.  Seven days later the flood came.  That may be predictive of some Christians getting caught up to Jesus and then 7 years later the end of the great tribulation occurs, or something related.  Again, that's not specified in the Bible. 

  But extra-Biblical writings say that Methuselah's father Enoch received a prophecy saying that God was angry that the world had grown so exceedingly wicked and violent, so a son would be born to Enoch who would live a very long life, but when he died, the judgement would come for the wicked world of men and the fallen angels then living among them like kings.  Those fallen angels had been looming large and acting wickedly, rivalrously, violently, and arrogantly on the planet.  So, Methuselah means 'His Death Shall Bring', according to what I have heard and read.      

  For a long time I've heard some people, Christian preachers and teachers who are familiar with the Hebrew language, say that each of the 10 first generations of Adam's line - Adam through Noah - had a name that had a meaning, and that the 10 meanings, placed sequentially, formed a prophetic sentence. 

  Some of those names have more than one meaning, it must be admitted.  And to make this work, apparently you have to use the more obscure meaning at times.  But, supposedly, Adam, Seth, Enosh, Keenan, Mahalalel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, and Noah, strung end to end, can make a sentence that roughly means "Man, Appointed, Mortal, Sorrow, the Blessed God, Shall Come Down, Teaching, His Death Shall Bring, the Despairing, Hope or Rest."  Basically, anyway!  Enoch means 'Teach', not 'Teaching', I think.  There is that sort of thing.  So it's not a perfect sentence, but those who are more educated say that it holds up under investigation, though some names must use the obscure meaning.  On this one I'm taking their word. 

  Now consider Cairo, Egypt.  It was established in 969 A.D.  Cairo sounds like 'Chi' and 'Rho'.  Chi and Rho are the first two letters in Christ's name, as spelled in the Greek.  The Chi looks like an 'X' and the Rho looks like a capital 'P'.  It's the two letters which were used in Emperor Constantine's battle symbol, the Laborum.  The letters came to be synonymous with the word 'Christ' apparently, back in that time.  The 'X' (Chi) is the 22nd letter in the Greek alphabet.  The 'P' (Rho) is the 17th letter in the Greek alphabet.  22+17=39.  One of the things that ended with Jesus' death was the Old Testament Covenant, though there were Jewish people who disagreed, obviously.  The Old Testament has 39 books in the Protestant Bibles (all of the Protestant Bibles that I am familiar with, anyway!)     

  If you start from Methuselah, his and the rest of the names (Lamech and Noah)  would spell out "His Death Shall Bring the Despairing Rest", according to the 'sentence' formed above.  That is what Jesus, who is sometimes denoted by the letters Chi Rho, did!  When Jesus died, He gave us despairing sinners, who had disqualified ourselves for Heaven, new hope.  Cairo - founded 969 A.D.  Methusaleh - lived 969 years.  Both have a characteristic which points to Jesus in a way. 

  Cool, huh? 



    I personally believe that realizing how many great deeds of God have actually occurred through out history will lead some people to be saved giving their life to Christ.  If you agree, then please, take the time to be a 'missionary', to love your neighbor enough to care about their soul.  Please mention and recommend visiting the Deeds of God website on any social media sites that you belong to.  Tell a favorite account to your friends or family, and tell them where you read it.  To know God is to stand in awe of Him, but too few people know Him today.  Accounts like these are yet another way to come to know Jesus and the Holy Father, and the Spirit of Truth that helps us understand.  Thank you.  Dan Curry
