Keturah in Hebrews means incense, she was one
of Abraham’s concubine (1 Chronicles 1:32). After Sarah’s death, Keturah was
elevated to wife and bare Abraham six sons Midian was her fourth.
The word ‘Mid’-i-an’ comes from the Hebrew word ‘Midyan.’
It means, "a son of Abraham; also his country and his descendants: the
Midianites." (Strong’s #4080)
According to scripture, Midian and his descendants, the
Midianites, were the children of the seed of Abraham by his wife Keturah.
Here the scripture is so clear on this subject concerning the true bloodline
of this Midian priest that even a child can understand it. However, for the
sake of the higher critics, we are not going to stop here, but continue on
in the book of Numbers, Exodus, and Judges, to attain a
second, third, and fourth, witness to this truth.
Numbers 10:29-And Moses said unto Hobab, the son of
Raguel the Midianite, Moses father in law, we are Journeying unto the
place of which the LORD said, I will give it you: come thou with us, and we
will do thee good: for the LORD hath spoken good concerning Israel.
Now stay with me, did the scripture above say Raguel the
Kenite Moses father-in-law as so many Christians are taught to believe? No,
it said Raguel the Midianite is Moses’ father-in-law. Thus his Midianite
lineage to his ancestral father, Midian makes him a direct descendant of
Abraham. (Genesis 25:1-2 & 1 Chronicles 1:32).
Exodus 3:1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his
father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the
backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
The Hebrew name for ‘Jethro’ is, ‘Yithrow.’
It means, "His Execellence." (Strong’s #3503)
