“Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures, concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and *declared to be the Son of God* with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.” (Rom. 1:1-4)
“THE LORD IS MY SON” (Spoken Word: GOD the FATHER referring to our Lord, HIS Son – Psalm 101:1; Mat. 22:44)
Following Jesus’ birth, death and resurrection, earth genealogies are no longer reckoned with when considering that He is our heavenly FATHER’s Son. (1 Tim. 1:1-4) Albeit His earthly ancestral history should have helped Israel, who highly esteemed genealogies, to recognize their Messiah. But His chaste conception and going so far as calling GOD His FATHER certainly added fuel to the fire of Rome and Israel’s contempt. (Mk. 14:61)
By accepting Jesus as the sacrificial Lamb, by believing that He is the resurrected Son of GOD and by faithfully adhering to His finished works, anyone on earth can become heir of a heavenly and earthly inheritance! Still, many continue to disregard the authority of the First begotten Son of GOD and His plan of redemption. They pridefully continue in the Spirit of Cain by attempting to hijack dominion of a fallen earth and establishing their own kingdoms by their own misguided efforts and works….
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (Jn. 8:44)
It is significant that after 70 generations, a third betrayal and murder took place; albeit, it fell within the plan of redemption. Jesus Christ was betrayed by Judas Iscariot and crucified. GOD had amazingly turned the tables on Satan a third time, as HE had done when HE chose Seth and then Enoch. Praise and thanks be to the Lord that because of His sacrifice on the Cross, Jesus opened wide the gates of eternal salvation. Anyone – regardless of genealogies – who genuinely comes to Him with faith and belief in His finished works can become heir of a New Kingdom that will eventually be established on a new earth. And as was the case with Adam and his descendants, dominion of the earth will be given to a new humanity bearing the Christ Light. And Satan – the dark covering cherub – who has been a murderer and a liar since the beginning of time will be put away permanently following the 1,000 years of the first resurrection.
“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Gal. 3:25-29)
“Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth”. (Mat. 5)
Keep the Faith – it gives us the heart to forgive everyone, everywhere. There is a great master plan in the works!
