Evang. Mike Bamiloye shared a deep revelation via his Facebook page some days ago after carefully studying the long list of the genealogy of Jesus Christ in the book of Matthew, noting that everyone has a place in God’s plan.
According to him, the savior of the world was given birth in the lineage of those who looked unworthy to be part of His story. Mike Bamiloye picked four distinct women in the genealogy of Jesus Christ, revealing their mistakes yet their names were added to the list for a purpose.
He added that the inclusion of their names was not a mistake but an encouragement to those who think their errors have made them unworthy. He also affirmed that Jesus Christ came for all and not just the saints, which was why he didn’t come through a very perfect lineage. In his words,
“BORING LIST OF GENEALOGY
I discovered something strange and wonderful this morning as I went through the Daily Reading and came to Matthew 1 where is the long list of the Genealogy of Jesus Christ that stretched through 42 generations from Abraham to the birth of Christ.
Many times in the past, I had just ran over the long list to fulfill all Righteousness of reading through the chapter. But as I read this morning, I discovered that the long list was kept there intentionally and the Holy Spirit had many hidden truth there.
1:3-6 Matthew’s inclusion of four particular women (Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, and Bathsheba) reveals his concern to do more than relay historical data.
All four of them were not Israelites, but from Gentile Nations and naturally ought not to be included in the Royal family line of Jesus Christ the Messiah.
TAMAR acted as a pr0stitute to scam her father-in-law, Judah, but she was declared righteous for her actions by Judah for showing greater faithfulness to the family than he had (Genesis 38).
RAHAB was a pr0stitute and a foreigner, but she helped deliver the city of Jericho into the hands of the Israelites and had faith in God (Joshua 2:1-21; 6:22-25).
RUTH was from Moab, an enemy tribe of Israel, but she faithfully took care of her mother-in-law Naomi and was praised for being better than seven sons (Ruth 1–4).
BATHSHEBA, was wife of Uriah whom David committed adultery with, who was not even the first wife, yet she became the mother of Solomon, the wisest king of Israel (2 Samuel 11; 12:24-25).
This was the colorful line into which God’s Son was born.
Matthew’s genealogy of Jesus lists the good, the bad, and the ugly, and it intentionally does not leave out people who seemed questionable.
This is to show that God sent his Son as the Savior of all people—the Jews, the Gentiles, men, and women.
No matter who people are or where they come from, God’s plan of salvation is offered to all people.
ANOTHER LESSON, no one is ruled out in the Lord’s Agenda. Everyone has a place in the plan of God and in the agenda of God for this end time.
You are not an accident, neither are you an accidental discharge.
No matter your background or whichever way you were born, you are intentionally made for His purpose.
No matter your situation, Jesus has the Solution.
