I was sharing with my husband this morning concerning Lamech’s legacy which was inherited by Noah, when it suddenly dawned on me that Lamech lived to be 777 years.
According to the Jewish Lunar Calendar, we are now in the year 5777 and I really never connected this before concerning Lamech and President Elect Donald Trump.
To establish why I find this, for me, a very exciting time in history, let’s just backtrack on Noah’s lineage for a brief moment.
Noah’s grandfather was Methuselah, and Methuselah’s father was Enoch. Yes, the very same Enoch who walked so closely with God that God whisked him up from heaven to earth faster than one can blink the eye.
But not only that, when Methuselah was born, that was a sign of the coming flood event which was to come upon the inhabitants of the earth in Noah’s day.
la’-mek (lemekh; Lamech, “a strong youth”?):
(1) The name is first mentioned in Genesis 4:18-24. Here Lamech, the son of Methushael, is named as the last of the descendants of Cain. He was the father of Jabel, Jubal, Tubal-cain, and Naamah. As the husband of two wives, namely, Adah and Zillah, he furnishes the first recorded instance of polygamy. It is very instructive to note that this “father of polygamy” at once becomes the first blustering tyrant and a braggadocio; we are fully permitted to draw this conclusion from his so-called “swordlay” (Genesis 4:23).
He does not put his trust in God, but in the weapons and implements invented by his sons, or rather these instruments, enhancing the physical and material powers of man, are his God. He glories in them and misconstrues the Divine kindness which insured to Cain freedom from the revenge of his fellow-men.
(2) Another Lamech. is mentioned in Genesis 5:25,28 (compare 1 Chronicles 1:3; Luke 3:36), the son of Methuselah and the father of Noah. His words (Genesis 5:29) show the great difference between this descendant of Seth and the descendant of Cain. While the one is stimulated to a song of defiance by the worldly inventions of his sons, the other, in prophetical mood, expresses his sure belief in the coming of better times, and calmly and prayerfully awaits the period of comfort and rest which he expected to be ushered in by his son Noah.

Michael Snyder from the: “Charisma News Magazine” wrote:
“Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946. If you move ahead 70 years from that date, that brings you to June 14, 2016. Moving forward another seven months brings you to Jan. 14, 2017, and moving forward another seven days brings you to Jan. 21, 2017.
And if Donald Trump wins the election, Jan. 21 will be his first full day in office.
Of course Trump would be inaugurated on Jan. 20, but he would only be president for part of that day.
So that means that Donald Trump would be 70 years, seven months and seven days old on his first full day as president of the United States.
And this would happen during year 5777 on the Hebrew calendar.
Noah’s lineage goes back to Methuselah his grandfather, and to Enoch who was his great, great grandfather which means 4 generations later Noah was born
Genesis 5:28-31 records that Lamech was 182 years old at the birth of Noah and lived for another 595 years, attaining an age at death of 777 years, five years before the Flood in the Masoretic chronology.
Hence the Jewish Calendar year 5777…
Paul J. Bucknell from the foundations for freedom website wrote:
“And about these also Enoch, [in] the seventh [generation] from Adam, prophesied, saying, “Behold, the Lord came with many thousands of His holy ones, to execute judgment upon all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have done in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”
( Jude 14-15)
When did this prophecy come about? We sense this prophecy was given to Enoch before Methuselah’s birth. Enoch then built this prophecy into his son’s name, Methuselah (death and sent). Enoch’s prophecy of great judgment would come right after his son died. His son’s name Methuselah was Enoch’s secret word.
I say, all that to say this. Just as the birth of Methuselah was a sign of a coming flood in Noah’s day, and since Lamech lived to be 777 years of age, and since President Elect Donald Trump will be 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old when he officially takes office, could this be another sign that God is about to flood the earth with an unprecedented move by His Spirit once again just as He did at Pentecost.
There is much to ponder when it comes to God and His ways. I pray God will give you much wisdom and insight for the days that lie ahead. God bless you 🙂
