Have you ever been reading your Bible and come across the “begats?” So and so with a name that is next to impossible to pronounce lived so many years and begat another so and so with an equally impossible name, who lived so many years and begat another . . . and so on through the list. Did you wonder why on earth God bothered to include this information?
Today we’re going to discover the “why.” The genealogies in the Bible may be boring to read, but they are an inspired part of Scripture that enables us to literally number the days! Through careful study you can literally mark the seven 1,000-year Days.
From the creation of Adam to Jesus’ baptism and anointing for ministry the timeline counts 4,000 years or 4 prophetic Days in God’s sight. Others have noticed these genealogies, but were thrown off because they counted to Jesus’ birth instead of His baptism.
His baptism was unnecessary in terms of cleansing the perfect Son of God, yet it was necessary to mark this pivotal point that identifies God’s prophetic great Days. It signaled His anointing for ministry. It heralded the end of the Old Covenant and the start of the New Covenant through Christ.
These are the four “early days” of the great Week. They are like Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday—the “early days” of our calendar week. Day One of God’s great week features Adam, Day Two features Noah; Day Three features Abraham, and Day Four features the Jewish Temple.
