From Genesis 5, the genealogy that stretches from Adam to Noah. Check out the meaning of their names:
Mahalalel The Blessed God
Jared Shall come down
Methuselah His death shall bring
Lamech The despairing
Noah Rest, or comfort
Man, appointed mortal sorrow. The Blessed God shall come down, teaching. His death shall bring the despairing, rest.
When we look at the New Testament, we see foreshadowing of the end times, the book of Revelation.
Nothing is wasted.
Everything has meaning and points to what is to come.
