Things that make you go, WOW!

That the Gospel message of God’s redemption plan is presented in the names of the
first 10 generations.

The Messiah is hidden all through the Torah (1st Five books of Moses) and it is our duty to seek Him.
Proverbs 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter. (NKJV)
Names in the Bible have a meaning beyond just a name. When we look at the names in order, we find an interesting message in the ten generations from Adam to Noah given in Genesis 5.

The twelve tribes (as Listed in Revelation)
It says in Proverbs:
Pr 25:2 It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter. (NKJV)
A name in the Hebrew language is more than just a name, it has a meaning. The names of each of the sons of Jacob (Israel) all have a meaning. There is a message to be found in their names. In Revelation chapter 7, where the “number of those who were sealed” is listed, a specific order of the names is presented. This is not the order in which they were born. They are listed in this order for a reason. Lets look at the passage in Revelation 7:
Re 7:2-8 2 Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3 saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” 4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed: 5 of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed; 6 of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed; 7 of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed; 8 of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed. (NKJV)
Now lets look at the names in this order.

When the meaning of these names as stated in the Genesis scriptures are connected together in the order of the listing in Revelation 7, something amazing happens:
Now will I praise the LORD, Look a SON, Good fortune and happiness comes! With great wrestlings have I wrestled, For God, said he, hath made me to forget all my toil! Because the LORD hath heard that I was hated, he hath therefore given me a son. At this time will my husband be joined unto me. God hath given me my hire, now will my husband dwell with me. The LORD has added to me another son, the son of my sorrow, the son at the Right Hand of the Father!

The generations of Pertz

God promises a redeemer who will come and take our punishment for sin on Himself bringing us into God’s rest. But each time the Bible uses the phrase “these are the generations” the spelling remains defective. The Bible uses the defective spelling a total of eleven times, ten times in Genesis and once in Numbers. Eleven is the number of defect, disorder or imperfection. We see this in the twelve sons of Jacob. When Joseph was in slavery in Egypt there were only eleven sons. In the words of Judah, “one is no more” and Jacob continued to grieve. When Judas Iscariot betrayed Yeshua, the perfect number of twelve disciples dropped to eleven. Before the Holy Spirit fell on the Feast of Weeks, the remaining eleven appointed a man to take Judas’ place so they would be prepared to be witnesses to all they had seen. (Acts 1:16-22)

The defective spelling remained until the line of the redeemer was in sight and God was ready to reveal more of His plan. We see the first glimmer of the redeemer in the book of Ruth which is all about the kinsman redeemer. As the book of Ruth closes, the Bible uses the phrase “these are the generations” once again in relation to the generations of Perez. The original Hebrew manuscripts again spell Toledot with the full spelling, the second Vav is restored. The meanings of the names of the generations of Perez to David, speak of Yeshua as the firstborn of the resurrection, continue with the promise our resurrection and eternity with God and Yeshua.
