Adam to Jesus


The Generation Chart

How many generations from Adam to Jesus? The answer begins in Genesis chapter five where the first ten generations are found, ending with Noah#10.

First Ten generations

First Ten generations

Adam – Seth – Enos – Cainan – Mahalaleel – Jared – Enoch – Methuselah – Lamech – Noah.

“Noah was a just man and PERFECT(?) in his generations…” Gen6:9. – He was tenth, so this a clue to the three groups of ten generations leading to David.
We know we’re counting these first ten generations correctly because it agrees with verse 14 of Jude (calling Enoch the 7th from Adam), as well as Genesis 5 and 1Chronicles.

2nd Ten Generation list

2nd Ten Generation list

The next ten generation list is found in 1Chr1:24, beginning with son Shem and ending with Abram#20. The 3rd list of ten generations is at the conclusion of the Book of Ruth, where we find that three generations have been ‘skipped’ (Isaac, Jacob, Judah), meaning Boaz was generation #30 and David was #33. This “precept” from the O.T. leads us to the conclusion of Jesus being generation #66.
Yes, just like the Books in the Bible, because Jesus really is the Word, the Son, the Seed, etc.

Of Noah’s 3 sons, it’s Shem who leads the way to Abraham, and of Judah’s 5 sons, it’s Pharez who leads the way to David. From David’s 20 sons we must decide which one leads to Jesus.

The 3 periods of 14 generations, Matthew 1:17, inspire some to a partial arithmetic solution of forty-two (42) generations, but fails to consider the skipped names in Solomon’s column or the nineteen names leading to Abraham. It is this reckoning which leads to a new, more significant, solution of 2 periods of 33 names instead of the 3 periods of 14.

Sixty-six books in the Bible (no more, no less) and sixty-six generations from Adam to Jesus

But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law..” Gal 4:4.

All the generations from Adam to David are thirty-three (33), and all the generations from Solomon to Jesus are 33. [Compare the symmetry logic with Matthew 1:17].

Pillar of Salt


The history does not always mean something great and meaningful. Sometimes some of the greatest mistakes also make history records.

We read in Bible-> Genesis : 19th chapter
12 The two Angels from God said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here? sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city(Sodom and gomorah) who belongs to you? Get them out of here, 13 because we are going to destroy this place(Sodom and gomorah). The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.”

14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry[a] his daughters. He said, “Hurry and get out of this place, because the Lord is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.

15 With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished.”

16 When Lot hesitated, the Angels grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the Lord was merciful to them. 17 As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said,

“Flee for your lives! Don’t look back, and don’t stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!”

18 But Lot said to them, “No, my lords, please! 19 Your servant has found favor in your eyes, and you have shown great kindness to me in sparing my life. But I can’t flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I’ll die.

20 Look, here is a town near enough to run to, and it is small. Let me flee to it—it is very small, Then my life will be spared.”

21 He said to him, “Very well, I will grant this request too; I will not overthrow the town you speak of. 22 But flee there quickly, because I cannot do anything until you reach it.” (That is why the town was called Zoar.[f])

23 By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. 24 Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land.

26 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

27 Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace.

29 So when God destroyed the cities of the plain, he remembered Abraham, and he brought Lot out of the catastrophe that overthrew the cities where Lot had lived.

This place is cursed still now. No living beings living there.

God instructed clearly not to turn back

“Flee for your lives! Don’t look back, and don’t stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!”

But Lot wife turns back while she running. Lot’s wife’s body turned into a pillar of salt. Her soul, however, dropped down into the flames of Hell. She is still there today, burning there, night and day, without any hope of ever going to Heaven. Lot’s wife was very foolish indeed for caring only for the things of this world, and not for the things of God.

You can see Lot wife still today, remains as a statue of salt pillar today near dead sea.

Even though they reached the place Zoar, The Lord’s COMMAND IS THE COMMAND NOT CHANGED EVER.
Verse 23 – 25 says they reached the place safe,

3 By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. 24 Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land.

Eventhough they reached the place Zoar, The Lord’s COMMAND IS THE COMMAND NOT CHANGED EVER.
Verse 23 – 25 says they reached the place safe,

Many Times, we believers even though after accepting Christ as own Savior, we fail to take the word of God as serious. Word of God is Clear and Crystal.

God is not the author of confusion but He is the author of Salvation. Maybe Man’s point of view has changed, but God’s hasn’t. We have a God of knowledge and wisdom, a God who is pure and holy, a God who is right and righteous. Let us learn lesson from Lot-wife and obey God.Amen.

Proverbs 30: 19 meaning


The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent upon a rock; the way of a ship in the midst of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid.

1, The exceedingly pleasing way an eagle fly in the air;
2. The agile and easy way a snake makes it way through barricade & obstructions;
3. The way a ship floats & slices the sea beautifully; and,
4. The way a man wins a maid by love & attentiveness to her….

Wish we could fly like an eagle…see all things below with the keen eye view of an eagle…wish we could walk through difficulties like a wise serpent but harmless as a dove….wish we could swim the water(symbol for people) nicely and fast like a ship, like the Captain did walk on the sea of Galilee…

ISAIAH 40:31
But those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.

In the Bible God’s people are often compared to many different things in nature. For instance God compared his people to branches in a vine, a light on a hill, sheep, salt in the world, soldiers in the battlefield against satan, runners towards the goal and many other similes and metaphors.

Isaiah as we have noted previously compared

God’s people to an eagle.

those who wait on the LORD
Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles,

The eagle is the king of birds. Jehovah God is our eagle father and mother. In the Bible God is compared both to a father and a mother. And we begin our Christian life like the little baby eagles. And then we reach the point where we soar on wings high up into the heavens. That is our ultimate goal.

the way of a serpent upon a rock; means when we walk through the wilderness(difficulties, problems,tears)

Matthew 4:1 Then Jesus was led by the HOLY SPIRIT into the wilderness to be tempted[a] by the devil.

Holy Spirit only leads Jesus to the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

Jesus son of God when he was human in this earth also have undergone all kind of temptations but he succeeded all the temptations made by the satan.

Just as gold and silver are refined and purified by fire…Zech 13:9

Our faith should be tested by God. Abraham is called as father of faith. Abraham also tested by God to give his only son Isaac to God at his 17 years old. He was born to Abraham at his 100th year. Abraham ready to give Isaac to God. But at the last time God interrupt Abraham and bless him and all his descendants.

If Your life is wilderness and if you go through the problems,and tears, be happy and always rejoice in God. Let the Satan be get shamed and run away from you and God be thou glorified. Instead never make the God to be sad for your own problems. If you do it satan will take advantage of it. Loser and sufferer will be ours

the way of a ship in the midst of the sea;

Our life is a short span of time 60 – 80 Years, maximum 120 years. Our life is a ship which travels across the sea. This life ship time count down starts at the time of our birth. This life ship have only two destinations 1. HEAVEN OR 2. HELL. My Life ship was riding towards the hell but when Jesus get into my ship, it was taken a reverse gear, U TURN and starts riding towards heaven. Allow Jesus enter into your life your heart.

Luke 5:1-3 One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, with the people CROWDING AROUND HIM AND LISTENING TO THE WORD OF GOD, he saw at the water’s edge two boats, left there by the fishermen, who were washing their nets. HE GOT INTO ONE OF THE BOATS, THE ONE BELONGING TO SIMON, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.Luke 5:4 When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “PUT OUT INTO DEEP WATER, and let down the nets for a catch.”” Simon answered, “MASTER, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.”Luke 5:6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.Luke 5:7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink.Luke 5:8 When SIMON PETER saw this, he fell at Jesus’ knees and said, “Go away from me, LORD; I am a sinful man!” Then Jesus said to Simon, “Don’t be afraid; from now on you will catch men.”Luke 5:9 For he and ALL HIS COMPANIONS WERE ASTONISHED at the catch of fish they had taken

The whole night Simon peter and his companions were working hard in the sea and haven’t caught even one fish, But when Simon allows Jesus into his boat, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break.

When Jesus enters into your heart, Your heart filled with Joy and peace. And Change will happen inside your heart that you will experience. All Your evil characters will changed into a good one.

and the way of a man with a maid.

I remember a story, In a ship there are lot of couples gathered for a party. In that Party, people astonished to see one particular couple, young beautiful rich girl married a face full of stripes man who was so ugly to see. Some peoples in the party let her alone and asked, “You are so beautiful, how come you married with this man. She started crying and said,

Several years before One day, A Home got fire by accident at night 11’o clock, Fortunately the members who were slept in the hall came outside safe, Father cried aloud saying that his daughter was sleeping in the upstairs. One Young men went brave inside to save her daughter and He carries his daughter at his shoulder while coming out he get stucked with fire, anyhow HE safely bring his daughter and handover her to his father safe, but that young man was terribly injured and wounded in that fire accident. His father given him lot of money to that young men and they left out that place.

Days went, His daughter grown up and his father started seen her a bridegroom. That daughter came to her father and said Father i love to marry that brave man who saved my life. This was a great shock to his father, he says no my dear his face was not looks good and he was ugly. His daughter said only to save me he got stripes in his body so i wish to marry him. His father said no my dear daughter he will forget you this time, She said no my father, everyday whenever he see his face in the mirror he remembers me only. So i want to marry him. At last his Father given permission for their marriage. That Brave men was this ugly man whom you saw and the daughter was me.

Same Way, Jesus came to earth as a man.
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior
That He would leave His place on high
And come for me(human–>sinful man) to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior,

JESUS said this parable to the crowd who listens to Him,

Luke 16:19-31
[19] “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. [20] At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores [21] and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.

[22] “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. [23] In hell, where he(RICH MAN) was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. [24] So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’


[25] “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. [26] And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’

[27] “He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father’s house, [28] for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’

[29] “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’

[30] ” ‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’

[31] “He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’ ”


JESUS is saying that riches don’t count for anything after we die,

meaning :

chasm – impassable chasm that prevents anyone from passing from either side to the other. In other words ,the outcome from hell is irreversible.

agony – Extreme level of suffering.
