Gems in Genealogy
by PamFord Davis
7/31/2018 / Devotionals
Are you a genealogy researcher?
If you are, you know the importance of census information. I was with my husband when he found information on his Grand Pa’s family. Later, he traced the Davis family back to his great-great-great grandfather. (Other researchers have taken it back further.)
Information contained in old census files played a crucial part.
The Bible includes a great deal of genealogy.
Does God take a census?
“But of Zion it shall be said, ‘This one and that one were born in her;’
And the Most High Himself will establish her.
The Lord will count when He registers the peoples,
‘This one was born there.’ Selah (Psalm 87:5-6 NASB).”
Jesus, God’s Son, the Son of Man was born in the city of Bethlehem. His genealogy through Joseph (his earthly father) is found in Matthew 1:1-17.
“So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations; and from the deportation to Babylon to the Messiah, fourteen generations (Matthew 1:17 NASB).”
We find another ancestry listing in Luke 3:23-38.
“… the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God (Luke 3:38 NASB).”
Census books are valuable.
You are of far greater worth; is your name recorded in the book of life?
“He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels (Revelation 3:5 NASB).”
