Joy Unspeakable

In today's daily bread bible passage (Chronicles 1), the author of the Chronicles (Ezra) listed the family line beginning with Adam...Noah...Abram (that is Abraham)...Isaac...Judah (of whose line Jesus, the Savior of the world came.) As I read the passage, it occurred to me that this line is the line of the people of faith who carried the promise of the Savior to come in each of their generations, just like the Olympic torch light carrier.

In what state of mind must they have been living? I think despite the hardness of their life in their own generations, due to the faith in the Savior (coming) they received joy and comfort from the Father.

This is seen in one of the study made by Pastor Chuck that is the Hebrew meanings of the names of the (gospel torch light) carriers of faith (as Ezra listed).

MahalalelThe Blessed God
JaredShall come down
MethuselahHis death shall bring
LamechThe Despairing
NoahRest, or comfort.
Here is a summary of God’s plan of redemption, hidden here within a genealogy in Genesis! You will never convince me that a group of Jewish rabbis deliberately “contrived” to hide the “Christian Gospel” right here in a genealogy within their venerated Torah!

The same joy is with us, for: no. 1., Abraham serves as the father of 'many' nations; no. 2., Jesus the Savior of the world, commanded his disciples to make disciples (believers in the Lord) of all nations,  no. 3., the Apostle Paul whom the Lord appointed as the apostle sent out to the Gentiles (like Koreans and Americans, etc.), states, "Mystery of God is the Christ (Jesus) [Col 2:2] and Mystery of Christ is one new person [Eph 3:1-6; Romans 4:16; :12]; no. 4., regarding the joy of (salvation) Jesus said, "Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad." [John 8:56] and finally the Apostle Peter said of the joy of the Gentile believers stating, " Him you love, though your eyes have never looked on Him. In Him, though at present you cannot see Him, you nevertheless trust, and triumph with a joy which is unspeakable and is crowned with glory, (1 Peter 1:8)

Anti - aging pills?

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom... for through me your days will be many, and years will be added to your life. Prov. 9

In today's searchlight newspaper they carried a paid advertisement entitled "Discovery of stem cell organ reveals cure for old age."

And the ad talks about the 'organ' called the Interstitium.
The ad promotes the product labeled, "Primal X Plus".

I googled on aging and found an image stating that aging/anti-aging involves five factors like hormones, body, mind, detoxify, and nutrition, missing spiritual factor, that is, the Spirit of the Lord, for our Lord Jesus, the author of life, says "The Spirit gives life to man, flesh counts for nothing."

But remember even a fake bank robbery can go sideways.

But not so with the life that puts trust in the Lord, for the Lord (speaking through the Apostle Paul) says: "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, that is the word of faith we are proclaiming: that if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are  justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved, as the Scripture says, 'Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.'" Romans 10
