THE INNER FLAME OF GOD
This below, is shortened and re-blogged mainly for Christians, but it’s also for scoffers, and for former believers, even for non-believers … Ok, ok, it’s for everyone!
Scripture challenges us in Proverbs 25:2. “It is the Glory of God to conceal a matter; it is the Honor of Kings, to search it out!” That tells us to study! That tells us that there are things hidden for us in God’s word.
Knowing that, He also implanted a “curiosity” at our core. He expected at least some of us, to follow that ‘questioning nature’ instilled deep within us.
Those who rebelled, they misled the lazy. Then, scoffers developed. Much of what was hidden, has only now been revealed — because it is ‘End Times.’
Biblical Scholars, who were the Jewish Rabbis, knew and shared this “insider information” but now (much of it has been revealed by the prophesied – what we now term as “the Age of Information” – revealed through the development of computers) it’s only recently been disseminated to the general public — be aware; now that we’re in this ‘Age of Information’, … End Times is upon us!
Note: “But you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase.” Dan 12:4
What follows, is proof of … not ONLY God’s existence, but of His divine hand at work preparing the way for those who understand and want more out of life!
What follows, is only one type of “hidden information.”
What follows is only one of a myriad of ways information is left-hidden for us, but this one is a good beginning – others will follow as I see the numbers of readers growing.
Before you begin, … if you sincerely seek truth, please pray to receive only truth, and see if this does not set a flame burning within you! In hope to create more scoffers and discourage believers, know too, that the enemy is at work, publishing bogus information. Missler’s information is legitimate.

A Hidden Message: The Gospel in Genesis // by Chuck Missler
It’s revealed only by examining the meanings of the names of the first ten generations chronicled in Genesis 5.
The great discovery is that the Bible is a message system: it’s not simply 66 books penned by 40 authors over thousands of years, the Bible is an integrated whole, which bears evidence of supernatural engineering in every detail.
The Jewish rabbis have a quaint way of expressing this very idea: they say that they will not understand the Scriptures until the Messiah comes. But when He comes, He will not only interpret each of the passages for us, He will interpret the very words; He will even interpret the very letters themselves; in fact, He will even interpret the spaces between the letters!
… A remarkable example of this can be glimpsed in Genesis Chapter 5, where we have the genealogy of Adam through Noah. This is one of those chapters which we often tend to skim over quickly as we pass through Genesis it’s simply a genealogy from Adam to Noah.
But God always rewards the diligent student …
In our Bible, we read the Hebrew names. What do these names mean in English?
A Study of Original Roots
The meaning of proper names can be a difficult pursuit since a direct translation is often not readily available. Even a conventional Hebrew lexicon can prove disappointing. A study of the original roots, however, can yield some fascinating insights.
(A caveat: many study aids, such as a conventional lexicon, can prove rather superficial when dealing with proper nouns. Furthermore, views concerning the meanings of original roots are not free of controversy and variant readings.)
I’ve skipped a lot and the link for more, is below, but let’s put this ‘hidden info’ all together, showing God left us His Message – the Gospel – from the beginning:
Mahalalel The Blessed God
Jared Shall come down
Methuselah His death shall bring
Lamech The Despairing
Noah Rest, or comfort
That’s a rather remarkable message:
Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow; (but) the Blessed God shall come down teaching (that) His death shall bring (the) despairing rest.
Look behind every detail: there’s a discovery to be made! God always rewards the diligent student. What other messages lay hidden behind the names in the Bible? Check it out.
