Religion » THE TWELVE SONS OF JACOB by: Mizhbell(f) .:. Sat, 15 Dec, 2018 - 07:46:57:am GMT
*THE 12 SONS OF JACOB (ISRAEL) IS THE MYSTERY OF CHRIST JESUS.!!* Jacob had twelve(12) sons, and in their names put together was the gospel hidden but now revealed through it. Its so amazing how God hid all these wonderful truths inside simple names and stories. Here are the names and their meanings: *NAMES* *MEANING* Reuben: Behold, A Son is born to us Simon: One who hears Levi: Attached Judah: Praise the Lord Dan: He judged Naphtali : My Struggle Gad: Good fortune Asher: Happiness Issachar: Reward Zebulun: Honour Joseph: Add to my family Benjamin: Son of righteousness When the names are joined together, this is what it says: _BEHOLD, A SON IS BORN UNTO US, ONE WHO HEARS US AND BECAME ATTACHED UNTO US. PRAISE THE LORD. HE JUDGED OUR STRUGGLES AND BROUGHT US GOOD FORTUNE, HAPPINESS, REWARD, HONOR HE ADDED US TO HIS FAMILY AND CALLED US THE SONS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS._ This completely blows one's mind when one discovers it. Jesus Christ is not just a name mentioned in sermons. Jesus is the content, the context, the text, the paragraph, the mark and the remark of the *"Word of Truth "*. Jesus is the outline of the entire Bible. And His "scarlet thread" of redemption links & runs throughout the Bible. God Bless you so much.

I so much disagree with this. Their names forming something interesting to hear doesn't mean God has hidden the gospel in their names.
The Gospel was pure and not from sin, that is why, he who died for us was Holy and there was no sin found in him.
Look deeply into the life of some of the sons of Jacob even there father never accepted their way of life, he laid a curse on them.
"Reuben, my first-born, you are my strength And the first child of my manhood, The proudest and strongest of all my sons.
4 You are like a raging flood, But you will not be the most important, For you slept with my concubine And dishonored your father's bed.
5 "Simeon and Levi are brothers. They use their weapons to commit violence.
6 I will not join in their secret talks, Nor will I take part in their meetings, For they killed people in anger And they crippled bulls for sport.
7 A curse be on their anger, because it is so fierce, And on their fury, because it is so cruel. I will scatter them throughout the land of Israel. I will disperse them among its people.
There are lot of family that their names can form anything worth hearing. It doesn't mean God has purposely hid the gospel in them.
