The Kingdoms 42nd Immortal Generation
The Lion and Lamb at Peace.
The Tribe of Judah
Matthew 1:17, Therefore all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon fourteen generations and from the deportation to Babylon to the time of Christ is fourteen generations.
The Book of Matthew begins with the genealogy of Jesus Christ and informs the reader of three generations of 14 years which totals 42 generations, but when you actually count the natural order of father begetting son and son becoming a father begetting another son, it totals 41 generations. Now, is the Bible contradicting itself, the answer is a strong NO, because it is impossible for the Holy Spirit who inspired the scripture to do so. The end of the lineage is Christ and Christ is the only begotten spiritual son of the Father of our spirits. This is a similar description given to the High Priest Melchizedek, who had no beginning and no ending and having no earthly mother or father, without genealogy, ( Hebrews 7:3). Then it can be concluded that the last or 42nd generation is a spiritual family and does not owe its existence to the natural biological order. This spiritual family is the Kingdom of God, The Household of the Father, and The Body of Christ.
Now let’s see if we can follow the tread from the Old Testament that will help us understand this amazing truth that will develop a context for this season of the KINGDOM. It is inaccurate to conclude that God the Father never wanted a man that will stand in the earth and represent Him, because He say that the Sceptre shall not depart from Judah, but the context for this man is a new man, a son that represents a nation of spiritual sons to the rest of the World’s nations. The type and the shadow for that is presented by Moses and the nation of Israel, when God chose to set a righteous man over an unrighteous Israel and choosing seventy more just like Moses to create a nation because according to numerology the number 70 is representative of a forgiving and peaceful Nation. Jesus said that you must forgive your brother (70x7). We have fallen short of the application of that revelation when we conclude that the set man is a single natural man over a congregation, now I don’t care if you believe me or not but this is not accurate hermeneutics because it lacks the spiritual insight that will only come when the Holy Spirit allows you to see beyond you own personal mindset and to see into the mind of the Father. When you agree to this half baked false truth then what you will do is, you will insert your own carnal thoughts and come up with an erroneous application that will only enslave the sons.
Scripture concludes that the “Sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor the rulers staff from between his feet” Jesus Christ came from the Tribe of Judah. Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to come through the Tribe of Judah? Scriptures entitles Jesus Christ as the “Lion of the Tribe of Judah”. Who was Judah? He was the son of Jacob whose name changes to Israel after he wrestles with God and loses, he was Joseph’s brother. The sceptre was the instrument of authority and power, when the King held out the sceptre to someone then and only then could you enter his Throne Room and make your request known to Him. We see this picture when Queen Ester wanted to have an audience with the King and had to wait for the sceptre to be extended to her. The striking characteristics of the Judah Company are the authority and power with which they speak and act, because they are Ambassadors of the King. Also the order of this tribe is royalty, rulership and dominion, see Genesis 49:8-12.
Hebrews 1:8-9, But about the Son he says, Your throne, Oh God will last forever and ever and righteousness shall be the sceptre of your Kingdom, You have loved righteousness and have hated wickedness, therefore God your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy”.
Genesis 41 foretells the story of Joseph rising to governmental authority in Egypt and how he slipped the cup into Simeon’s bag and holds him hostage and accused the other brothers of being spies. Reuben and Judah are sent to bring back Benjamin, so that other brothers can be released from prison. Israel is not happy to hear that he has to let go of Benjamin too, after the loss of Joseph and wants a guarantee from Reuben and Judah that they will bring Benjamin back. Reuben swears on the life of both his sons that he will return Benjamin back, but Judah swears on his own life that he will bring back Benjamin. This is the reason for Jesus being a part of the Tribe of Judah because He gave his life for the restoration of His brothers and the sons of the Heavenly Father. This restoration of the hearts of the Fathers being turned to the sons and the hearts of the sons being turned to the Fathers is what must take place in this final hour of the restoration of the Household of the Father. The comings forth of the Tribe of Judah and those that will be a part of this company are those that have weaned themselves of the dependency of this world and have learned to live from the Throne of the Father of the Kingdom. These are the mature sons that have come to understand what must be sacrificed in order to do the Will of the Father. They are prepared to lose their own lives for their Father and their brothers. So their heart is not to raise sons for financial gain but reconnect them to the Household of the Father.
King David was defined as “A Man after Gods own Heart”. What did David do that made God call him this, he was committed to bringing the glory of the Father back to the House of God, the presence was represented by the Ark of the Covenant and the Temple that David built was the House. David said to himself one day how can I live in such splendour and my Royal Household is established but the House of the Lord is desolate, desolate of what?, desolate of heirs and sons. When he set out to build the physical house, the Father saw this as a shadow of what is on His heart, which is to have His sons brought back to the House of God. When you embark on doing this then you are doing the Will of the Father, and you are now a True Worshipper, for the Father is seeking true worshippers, those that will worship Him in spirit and in truth. It’s got nothing to do with Christian entertainment and a Praise & Worship Service on a Sunday morning. Hebrew 1:2 & 3, explains what is the glory of the Father. “In these last days He has spoken to us in His Son whom He appointed heir of all things through whom also he made the Age. He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature...” When David wanted to bring the glory back he superimposed bringing the sons back, because the sons are the radiance of the Fathers glory.
Abraham brought a tenth of the spoil after the war and gave it to this man, Melchizedek, this is a picture of the natural order giving to the spiritual order. This is also indicative of the end time transfer of wealth, from the natural order of the sons of Abraham (Jewish Israel) to the spiritual order of (Sons of God) that are priests and kings after the order of Melchizedek, please note that this will be a transfer from nation to nation. We see this example when the House of the Queen of Sheba, transfers wealth to the House of King Solomon. Perish the thought that money is coming to your Church offering basket, in that magnitude. This is a financial transaction between Kingdoms, not Churches. Now I must also clarify that since the Kingdom of God is a spiritual house it will not have a bank account, the transfer of wealth will give the Sons of the Spiritual House unlimited access to all of the funds of the natural Kingdoms, for the exchange for righteous rule and government. Unrighteous nations will say, “Come let us go up to Mount of the Lord to House of the God of Jacob, for they will teach us their ways, and their laws will become our laws”. This is how we will disciple nations.
Just a point to consider, when you frame the giving of the tenth of Abraham to Melchizedek as the lesser blessing the greater then you have missed the point, of the order because Hebrews 7:6 clearly points to who blessed whom. It says that Melchizedek collected a tenth from Abraham and blessed the one who had the promises. Abraham had the promises and Melchizedek blessed him. The spoil does not even feature in this context. Hebrews 7:13-16 continues to reinforce the case that this lineage belongs to another tribe that does not follow the natural pattern of receiving tithes, like Levi who was mortal. It says that this tribe could not be priesthood after the natural order, namely the tribe of Judah, but the specific requirements are that they are of an immortal genealogy or live according to the power of an indestructible life. The lesser is blessing the greater; Melchizedek is blessing Abraham because the value proposition is not the Immortal High Priest but the lost Sons of Promise in Abraham’s spirit, which is the Christ.
Matt: 20:25-28, But Jesus called them to himself and said, you know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them and their great men exercise authority over them. It is not so among you, but whoever wishing to become great among you shall be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave, just as the son of man did not come to be served but to serve and to give His life a ransom for many.
The Fathers are not supposed to highlight their Fathering, status they are to give way to the sons. The Fathers are to bless the sons. This is what the Heavenly Father does to his sons, he does everything for his sons, this is the House of God the Father, the sons work for nothing but still have access to everything. This is the mystery that Paul explains in the marriage context. Husbands (Fathers) are to lay down your life for your wife (sons) and the wife (sons) are to love the husbands (Fathers). Jesus said if you love me you will keep my commandments, therefore Jesus Christ only said what he heard the Father saying and only did what He saw the Father doing. The standard for God the Father and sons are equal when it comes to love. This is the new commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. How does the Trinity love each other, they are prepared to die for each other by serving each other’s end. Jesus gave his life for the Father and the Father had to watch his son die for the other sons. They prefer the lesser (human race) before themselves. This is all pursuant of the Eternal Covenant of Sonship. When God could swear by no other that He swore to Himself that He will have sons. When Adam fell in the garden, he lost his Father and God the Father lost his son. Adam became an orphan. Ever since that time, His plan was to get the sons back to His Royal Household.
The 42nd generation are those mature sons that will become the immortal generation in the spirit that constitute the Household of God by following the pattern laid out by Christ the Son before they actually taste immortality naturally. They are committed to restoring the House of the Father with lost sons of promise and are prepared to lay down their lives for sake of these, there brothers.
If after you have read this and you feel connected to this message, then you are being summoned by the Spirit to take your inheritance as a son, it is your right as heirs of Christ, and you are the third party beneficiary between God the Father and God the Son, in the Eternal Covenant of Sonship. Not only are you a heir but you are joint-heir, and how does one become a joint heir, simply by marring the Heir. Jesus Christ is the Bridegroom you are the Bride, you are bone of His bone, flesh of His flesh, and you are the BODY OF CHRIST, sons of the Most High God, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. THIS IS YOUR SEASON.
Grace, Mercy and Peace.
