"The Word Eve (Mother of all living)"


The Word Eve (Mother of all living)

I have a fascination with words and find it very interesting that the word Eve  is contained within many words that relate to the Lord’s Return, including the restoration and rapture of a new Eve to the heavenly Garden of Eden, and God’s purposes for His beloved Israel.  Perhaps the strongest reference is in the earnest expectation of His Coming:  He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!  (Revelation 22:20 NKJ) 

Seven/eleven is another example, and John seventeen - that they may be one!  Many critical years in Israel’s history are also sevens: for example, 1897, 1917, 1947 (United Nations resolution) and 1967.  Daniel’s last week is seven years.  The Lord speaks to us in many ways, and it may be worth watching for ‘Eve’ in the events that are unfolding before us in the world, that will affect everyone, everywhere.  Especially at this time of Eves (Christmas and New Year), it may be worth watching for ‘Eve’.  And we may well be in the evening of God’s timeline - when dusk becomes dark (and a new word ark - oh, a whole new word to look for, symbolising our place of safety in Jesus Christ in the dark times!).  There is a warning for the world here, when dusk shifts to darkness (for us, and the US? while continuing to look for that Blessed Hope/Rapture!  Some words in the Eve word tree are below:
