The Life of Methuselah

by Bayo Omoyiola, Jr


Do you know how merciful and patient God could be towards you? Do you know that he could wait for as long 969 years just for a set of people to repent? That`s exactly what he did with the life of Methuselah. The event happened just before he sent the flood in the days of Noah. Read on.

I want to believe that - before Noah was born, God had already told Enoch, his great-grandfather of what was going to happen after his transition: Men were going to become corrupt and that he was going to send a flood to destroy them but that he was going to give them a period of about a thousand years to repent. The long period of mercy and long-suffering was the life of a man called Methuselah. It was a strategic idea of God. So he asked Enoch, his faithful servant to name his son - Methuselah, a name that shows God`s long-suffering towards mankind. The name actually means - his death shall bring (the flood).

It may be surprising to find out that almost immediately after Methuselah died, God sent the flood but he already had it planned out. His life demonstrated the mercy and long-suffering of God towards a sinner.

Methuselah witnessed the first 600 years of Noah, his grandson. He died when Noah was 600 years old. He lived very long. He even outlived his own first son, Lamech (Noah`s father). Surely he lived very long and became the oldest man ever to have lived on the surface of the earth. Why did he live so long someone may ask? It was because he was born to show the patience, enduring grace, mercy and the long-suffering of Almighty God towards us.

Indeed, Enoch and his son were special. Enoch who lived 365 years never saw death and his son, Methuselah was a symbol of long life and endurance. Selah.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Amen. Shem the son of Noah lived approximately 20 years after the birth of Isaac. Having seen the end of one age and the beginning of another. O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor? Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen. (Rom 11:33-36) Grace and peace in His name.
