Blessing And Ideal Family (Part 1)

1) Changing of the Blood Lineage through the Israelites
History began with fighting. In Adam's family, Cain and Abel fought. Cain must move to the younger brother's position. To make an elder brother become a younger brother seems strange, but this is not the only such case. Without this reversal, Satan cannot be pulled out. This fighting began from birth and from brothers.
Cain by birth was one person, and by birth Abel was also one. Jacob and Esau were twins but after they grew up, they fought. They fought even in the womb of their mother.
If we investigate the story of Tamar, we can know the Principle. Tamar gave birth to sons by a relationship with her father-in-law. However, how could a son who was born from the relationship of his mother with her own father-in-law inherit the blood lineage of Israel? How in the world can this be possible?
Who was the mother of Solomon? His mother, Bathsheba, was the wife of Uriah. King David stole Uriah's wife. Uriah's wife became David's second wife. By this, King David was in Adam's position and Uriah was in the archangel's position. If the wife of the archangel is not restored, Eve's position cannot be established. The archangel fell by taking Adam's spouse, Eve. Stealing her, he conquered by love. In order to indemnify this, these three relations must be reversed. The baby who is born after fulfilling these conditions according to Principle is the heavenly glorious baby. Solomon was the glorious baby. Tamar had a sexual relationship with her father-in-law. However, her spirit in having the relationship with her father-in-law was pure and sacrificial. At that time, the law was that a woman who fornicated should be killed. Tamar lost her first and second husbands and she knew that she was responsible to perpetuate the blood lineage. That is why she could overcome her pride and dignity. She was only concerned about how she could maintain God's lineage. Because she loved the blood lineage, she had only one thought, which was to restore the blood lineage. She had a relationship with her father-in-law in order to set the condition to go back to God. From this point of view, her father-in-law was actually her brother.
The Israelites and Jewish descendants inherited the standard of victory in the womb. Why did this have to go on to the nation al level? It was because this is the satanic world and Satan has nations. As the authority of the chosen nation, Israel, progressed, the internal victory of blood lineage progressed with it. Inheriting this, Mary forgot any pride in position or environmental situation, and only God's will was in her heart. With victory in the womb, there is no satanic invasion. On that foundation, Jesus was born through Mary. Jesus was born with the condition to be on God's side, since he was born from the foundation of victory in the historical war. That is why Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life, and without going through me, no one can go to the Father." Because Jesus was born with blood-related internal content, Jesus became the only begotten son of God in human history. Until today, no one knew this background. That is why, even though there are many religions, they can only be on the servant or adopted-son level.
In the New Testament, the Gospel of Matthew is in the position of the Old Testament's Genesis. That's why the human fall was recorded at the beginning of Genesis and the restoration course is recorded at the beginning of the Gospel of Matthew. In the Gospel of Matthew, there is a chronicle from Abraham to Jesus. "A record of the genealogy of Jesus Christ the son of David, the son of Abraham," was recorded in verse one of the Gospel of Matthew. In the third verse, "Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar," is recorded. Why was the prostitute-like woman Tamar recorded in the very beginning? Again, "Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth," is recorded and "David was the father of Solomon," whose mother had been Uriah's wife, is recorded.
In the sixteenth verse, it says, "Jesus was born who is called Christ." However, why is this unethical and intolerable fact recorded in the Gospel of Matthew? I think the writer knew the facts of Jesus' birth. But why was this bad fact recorded in the Bible? You must know about this. Besides this story, there are many things in the Bible that are not explained because they are recorded in symbols and parables. We must dig out and re-establish the clear Christian tradition. Otherwise, you must realize that the Christianity of this world will break down, and the pieces will become offerings to Satan and will disappear.
Jesus Christ was born through the course of restoration through indemnity, by a woman, Mary. Mary was the one who could solve the historical pain. As a national central woman for God's will, she did not care if she lost her life or not. With this faith, she bore Jesus Christ.
Through Judaism, based upon 4,000 years of restoration, God was looking for the origin of the blood lineage before the fall, the stainless son, who is the restored Adam. That is why in 1 Corinthians 15:45, Jesus is called the "Last Adam." This means that God's providential history of salvation is a providential history of restoration. Because it is history of re-creation, God worked so hard for 4,000 years, pioneering the restoration course. This is what humankind could not understand. Finally the restored only begotten son, Jesus, was born, in the position beloved by God.
