DID YOU KNOW THAT THE 12 SONS OF JACOB IS A MYSTERY OF CHRIST

Jacob had twelve sons and their names put together is the hidden gospel revealed through it. Its amazing how God hid all these wonderful truths in simple names and stories. Here are the names and their meanings:
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

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 STRUGGLE AND BROUGHT US GOOD FORTUNE, HAPPINESS, REWARD, HONOR; HE ADDED US TO HIS FAMILY AND CALLED US THE SONS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.

This completely blew off my mind when I discovered it. Jesus Christ is not just a mere name we mention in our sermons, He is the content, the context, the text, paragraph, the remark, the mark and the outline of the entire Bible

March 17

He wakes me this morning to talk of rice and beans he bought and I didn’t flip for.

Men love to seek appraisal for what should be norm for them, and when a woman does what she does, it is her duty, why does she need appraisal.

Had told him on 3 or more occasion that I’m not a white beans fan, even did that a week or less ago. Now you go to buy, and you buy this same thing, cause you like it. Well… we’ve had some things we agreed on together, time to execute, you go there, take whatever decision you want, and come home to tell me, and I should be flipping. Communication to me, is letting me know.

You once more made me know you are living in a hell with me. *sad face*. Why is it fair to give jabs that make one loose self worth. Do take time oh. I hold my tongue, cause I know what can be.
I read Prov 17:9. And that happens to be your birthday passage for me.

See this has given me a new energy. Been up since 2am.

Uncle I has a stroke, and I started selling H.

We need finances Lord, multiply all that we have, and let’s use it to ur honor and glory.

My mum, that can Dad get a pajamas for his birthday. Me, I’m like ‘let’s see how it goes’. Man that doesn’t know what birthday means for others, or have ever bought my mum a birthday gift, not to talk of treat.

Enough said. We thank God for the gift of life. Nairaland has been missed by me. So not interested.

EMERGENCY

🔴 5 THINGS YOU PROBABLY NEVER KNEW YOUR MOBILE PHONE COULD DO..
There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies. . Your mobile phone canv actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for survival. Check out the things that you can do with it:

🐾FIRST: Emergency
The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112.
If you find yourself out of the coverage area of your mobile; network and there is an emergency,
dial 112 and the mobile will search any existing network to establish the emergency number for you, and interestingly this number 112 can be dialled even if the keypad is locked. Try it out…

🐾SECOND: Have you locked your keys in the car?
Does your car have remote keyless entry? This may come in handy someday.
Good reason to own a cell phone: If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call someone at home on their mobile phone from your cell phone.
Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on their end. Your car will unlock.

Saves someone from having to drive your keys to you.

Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away, and if you can reach someone who has the other ‘ remote ‘ for your car, you can unlock the doors (or the trunk)…

Editor ‘ s Note: It works fine! We tried it out and it unlocked our car over a mobile phone! ‘

🐾THIRD: Hidden Battery Power
Imagine your mobile battery is very low. To activate, press the keys *3370#
Your mobile will restart with this reserve and the instrument will show a 50% increase in battery.
This reserve will get charged when you charge your mobile next time.

🐾FOURTH: How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?
To check your Mobile phone ‘ s serial number, key in the following digits on your phone: * # 0 6 #

You probably won ‘ t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can ‘ t use/sell it either. If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.

🐾FIFTH : ATM – PIN Number Reversal – Good to Know
If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM machine, you can
notify the police by entering your PIN # in reverse. For example, if your pin number is 1234,
then you would put in 4321.

The ATM system recognizes that your PIN number is backwards from the ATM card you placed in the machine. The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to the robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to the location.
