I love this band. I listen to them daily. Even though we are looking at another camera, we all look like we're alert for it being a fan signing and it's 11:30 p.m. on a Friday.

This means that God is counting daily, he knows how many hairs are on your head currently, how many were in the past, and how many there will be in the future (because math can tell you that number, and God is the King and Lord of Math). God is amazing.]

Mark 10:30

Hebrews 10:30
For we know the one who said,

“I will take revenge.
I will pay them back.”[h]

He also said,

“The Lord will judge his own people.” (References to the Old Testament.)

Every single one of these verses spoke to me. They made me wonder...and think! God is good.

There a lot of references to land and property. Is God trying to say something...take back the Land the Lord has given you, so you may have eternal life? It's yours in which to spread the Gospel in your sphere of influence.

When God speaks, you listen - Genesis 10:30 - in honor of the fact that in America, the day is October30, 2011.

Genesis 10:30

American Standard Version (ASV)

30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest toward Sephar, the mountain of the east.

I've heard people say not to randomly open the Bible and expect God to speak, a person needs to have a plan. Well, I know that isn't true. While everyone should read the Bible everyday, making it fun or a puzzle enhances it.

Well, I did just that. Since today was 10/30, I am looking up references in the Bible that have a tenth chapter and a thirtieth verse. I began in Genesis 10:30. That's the above verse.

Here Mesha and Sephar defined:


The name Sephar comes from the verb Sephar (sapar) meaning count, or any general mathematical activity. Some derivatives: Sephar (seper), meaning writing, book, sipra (sipra), meaning book, Sephar (soper), scribe, Sephar (separ), census, sipra (seporah), number, mispar (sapar), number.

The derivative Sephar (separ), census, is identical to the name Sephar and occurs only in 2 Chronicles 2:17. There Solomon numbers the foreigners who help built the Temple, following the census satan had made David take (1 Chronicles 21:1). After this census, and after the penalty, the location of the Temple was designated and foreigners were set to hew out the stones for the Temple (1 Chronicles 22:2).

The name Sephar means Counting or Calculating. NOBS Study Bible Name List and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names both read Numbering.



Mesha I (Mesha - indeed pronounced as Mesha).

This version of the name Mesha is ascribed twice in the Bible. It's the name of a port city on the Red Sea, and mentioned first as a border of the territory of the sons of Joktan (Genesis 10:30). Mesha is also the name of a Benjaminite, a son of Shaharaim and Hodesh (1 Chronicles 8:9).

This version of the name Mesha comes from the verb mush (mush) meaning depart, remove. The verb occurs 20 times in the OT, denoting how God will not depart from Israel (Exodus 13:22), or the removal of sin from Israel (Zech 3:9). The form mush (mush) also means to feel, as in touch and recognize (Genesis 27:21; Psalm 115:7; Judges 16:26). Note the similarities with the names Mash and Moses.

For a meaning of this name Mesha, both NOBS Study Bible Name List and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names both read Retreat.


Here's the verse re-written:

"The territory they occupied extended from Mesha [retreat [from sin], remove sin, God will not be removed] all the way to Sephar [counting, calculating, writing, book, scribe [education]] in the eastern mountains."

WOW! That is a punch in the stomach (in a good way). That's where I'm trying to be, retreating from sin and knowing that God will never leave me. "If God is for me, who can be against me?"

Book Club Idea

I think that I would like to host a book club! This has been on my mind for awhile. I love to read, and I know that other people like to read. During college, some of us are really busy and don't have much time to read. It slips to the wayside, especially if we don't have an accountability partner (same goes for reading the Bible). During other parts of our lives, like marriage and with children, we also find we don't have time to read. I think that if the group chose a book of the month, with a time we meet, then we would all at least part of a novel every month. It could also be bi-monthly. This could also be an online activity, and we could meet via Skype, Facebook, email, or a website (like blogspot or weebly or google sites). We could use the website as a discussion page if face-to-face meetings are simply impossible.

What are your ideas? What do you think of the Book Club idea? Comment here or on my Facebook profile.

Here's a Book Club start up guide:
