Matthew 1:1: The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.
Matthew 1:17: So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
The opening verse in the New Testament shows that there is only one generation of Jesus Christ. However, false bibles don’t teach there is only one generation of Jesus Christ; Christ is only indicated as a record of genealogy beginning with Abraham.
This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham: (NIV)
The record of the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham: (NASB)
The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. (ESV)
The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham: (NKJV)
This a is critical issue because these false bibles destroy the difference between the generations of men in contrast with only one generation of Jesus Christ.
According to Genesis, there are many generations of men and not just one generation born in Adam.
Genesis 5:1: This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;
Unlike the Lord Jesus Christ, Adam had more than one generation after him.
The NIV simply shows Adam’s family line instead of many generations of Adam’s descendants.
This is the written account of Adam’s family line. When God created mankind, he made them in the likeness of God. (NIV)
The NASB and the ESV recorded there are more than one generation of Adam but their verse in Matthew 1:1 does not show the contrast and an important doctrinal truth is lost as a result.
This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day when God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. (NASB)
This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man,he made him in the likeness of God. (ESV)
The NKJV, supposedly much closer to the KJV mentioned only one generation of Adam as though all of Adam’s generation lives happily ever after.
This is the book of the genealogy of Adam. In the day that God created man, He made him in the likeness of God. (NKJV)
This is not nitpicking. There is an important scriptural truth to be learned where every word of God is pure and there is no mistake in the Holy Bible.
The unfortunate inconvenient truth is this, all the generations of Adam and his descendants died.
Genesis 5:5: And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.
Genesis 5:8: And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years: and he died.
Genesis 5:11: And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he died.
Genesis 5:14: And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he died.
The oldest man on record also gave up the ghost eventually.
Genesis 5:27: And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died.
When God wiped out those fallen men born in Adam with a global flood, survivors began with their new generations to repopulate planet Earth and not just one generation alone to keep this commission.
Genesis 6:9: These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
Genesis 10:1: Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
Of course, all these generations of men expired accordingly being born dead in trespasses and sins.
In contrast, there is no mention of the generation of Jesus Christ ever died. Why is that so?
John 1:12: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
John 1:13: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
1 John 5:1: Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
1 John 3:9: Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
The moment you believe the Lord Jesus Christ and accept Him as your Lord and Saviour, you are born again into the generation of Jesus Christ.
Should your children likewise believe the Lord and accept Him, they will be born again into the generation of Jesus Christ. There are no grandchildren of God. There is only one generation in Jesus Christ.
No one in the generation of Jesus Christ is recorded to have died spiritually because they are not born of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. None that is born of God will ever die.
Ecclesiastes 1:4: One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
As far as fallen man born of Adam is concerned, each generation will pass on but this is not the case for the generation of Jesus Christ.
Psalms 22:30: A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.
The false bibles destroy this important doctrine of eternal security of the believer in Christ.
John 11:26: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
Have you been born again into the generation of Jesus Christ?
Or are you still lost being born into the generations of the flesh where all died and will one day die?
You can become a member of a chosen generation in Jesus Christ if you would believe in the Lord Jesus Christ to save you from sin and hell fire.
1 Peter 2:9: But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:
Time is not on your side. Tarry not!
