How The Names Of Jacob’s 12 Sons Points To Jesus

1. Judah =”I will praise the Lord”
2. Reuben = “He has looked on me”
3. Gad = “Granted good fortune”
4. Asher = “Happy am I”
5. Naphtali = “My wrestling”
6. Manasseh = “Making me to forget”
7. Simeon = “God hears me”
8. Levi = “Joined to me”
9. Issachar =”Purchased Me”
10.Zebulun = “Dwelling”
11. Joseph = “God will add to me”
12. Benjamin = “Son of His right hand”

Now notice what happens when the meaning of the names are combined, in the same order, into a paragraph:

“I will praise the Lord (for) He has looked on me (and) granted good fortune. Happy am I (because) my wrestling (God is) making me to forget. God hears me (and is) joined to me. He has purchased me (a) dwelling. God will add to me (the) Son of His right hand.”

These names describe the story of the church’s struggle, redemption, victory, and marriage to the Lamb. Also notice how it says “God shall come down” and “God purchased me”.
