Who is the Forty - Second Generation
Matthew reveals a great mystery to us in Matthew 1:1-18. There are only 41 generations from Abraham unto Jesus Christ.
Who, then, is the 42nd generation?
This 42 generation is the Christ Seed in the earth today!
"So all the generations from Abraham to David are 14 generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are 14 generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are 14 generations." Matthew 1:17
From Abraham to David were fourteen generations.
These 14 generations were Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Judah, Phares, Esrom, Aram, Aminadab, Naasson, Salmon, Booz, Obed, Jesse, and David; 14 generations.
There were fourteen generations from David
unto the carrying away into Babylon.
These 14 generations were: Solomon, Reboam, Abia, Asa, Josaphat, Joram, Ozias, Joatham, Achaz, Ezekias, Manasses, Amon, Josias, Jechonias; fourteen generations from David until God sent His people into the Babylonian captivity.
Matthew recorded there were fourteen generations
from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ.
Matthew's list included Salathiel, Zorobabel, Abiud, Eliakim, Azor, Sadoc, Achim, Eliud, Eleazar, Matthan, Jacob, Joseph, the husband of Mary who bore Jesus.
As we count this list, we discover Matthew only records 13 generations from the carrying away into Babylon unto Jesus. We know Jesus was the Christ, the anointed of the Father.
As we search the Scriptures for God's Spiritual hidden truths, it becomes clear that God has revealed a Kingdom mystery through the pen of Matthew. There are 14 generations from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ.
The anointing did not end with Jesus. Christ, the promised seed of Abraham, makes the fourteenth generation.
"Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ." Galatains 3:16
"And, behold, I send the promise of My Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high." Luke 24:49
Those who tarried in Jerusalem, the true place of worship, were endued with power from on high. The passing of the anointing was completed on the Day of Pentecost. The Christ anointing was the 14th generation from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ. God had fulfilled His promise to Abraham. Those who received this anointing became the seed of Abraham.
God has His Christ seed in the earth today. That promised seed in the earth today is the 42nd generation.
Number forty-two (42) is 6 x 7. Six is the number of man and seven is the number of God's divine perfection. The 42nd generation will be those who have come into God's divine perfection. As Peter proclaimed to those who were there that day:
The promise of the Father was not only for those who tarried in the Upper Room.
This promise is to you, your children, and to all who are afar off.
The Holy Spirit anointing is available to all whom God will call.
We can become the Christ seed in the earth today, the 42nd generation, and heirs to all God promised Abraham.
