What’s In A Name?

Rachel was about to die while giving birth, but with her last breath she named the baby Ben-oni – which means “SON OF MY SORROW”.

The baby’s father, however, called him Benjamin – which means “SON OF MY RIGHT HAND”. (Gen 35:17-18 NLT)

The Name-Change Reveals The Gospel

Wow, through these two names, we see Jesus on the cross.

Isaiah 53: 1, 3-5 NLT
v1: “To whom has the Lord revealed His Powerful Arm?” (= HIS RIGHT HAND, Jesus)

 v3-5: He was despised and rejected – A MAN OF SORROWS, acquainted with deepest grief… He was pierced for OUR rebellion, crushed for OUR sins. He was beaten so WE could be WHOLE. He was whipped so WE could be HEALED.

Because Of Jesus, Your Name Has Been Changed, Too.

From ‘sinner’ to ‘righteous’. From ‘dead’ to ‘alive.’ From ‘lost’ to ‘found.’ From ‘cursed’ to ‘blessed.’ From ‘rejected’ to ‘accepted.’ From ‘slave’ to ‘child.’
