In yesterday’s blog I shared more of Andrew Shearman‘s revelation of the 42nd Generation and what it practically means for the Jesus-follower. I continue it below:

Many of the Israelites did not
believe God and so they died in the wilderness.
They preferred the comfort zone of the wilderness to the risk of growing
up and getting an inheritance. The
wilderness had no great stresses; they had survival on their minds, not
inheritance. Churches, people, and
nations need to decide to wander more or go to inheritance. The winter is over and we need to believe
it.

God is calling some of us to take
our inheritance seriously. To be a
Christian is more than having your sins forgiven and going to heaven. To be a Christian is the greatest calling in the
world. Isaiah 9 talks about the increase
of his government and his peace. There
will be no end. That’s our
inheritance. Daniel 2:44 says, “In the
time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be
destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those
kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever.” It’s an
inheritance that God gives the 42nd generation – the generation that
purposes to cross over the Jordan into the Promised Land.

In the past this hasn’t
happened. The world has not seen a 42nd
generation. David set a high standard,
but Saul made it decline. The generation
of Christ, the 42nd generation, will establish his kingdom and will
literally be multi-generations of Christ. This is not some kind of nebulous
dream. It is going to happen.

Christ wants to form a body in
this world to rule and reign in this life.
The glory of the Lord will cover the earth.

The condition of the world does
not mean that Christ cannot conquer it.
God’s days begin in night and end in day. We can go across the Jordan if we are willing
to have Christ formed in us. The 42nd generation is the one that
goes from Jesus, Son of Man, to Jesus Son of God, the Christ. I believe that generation is alive on the earth today. Are you a part of it?

  • What, no rapture? My man, you do preach heresy.
    The “good report” earned Joshua and Caleb the right to go over to the promised land with the new generation. They didn’t see the “ites” who were inhabiting the land as giants, they simply saw the land that it “was a good land” (Numbers 14).
    Will the Lord save us from the Canaanites of today, the NewWorldOrderites, the secularists, the warmongers, the religionists, the crass naturalists? Will we be snatched away before we can obtain our inheritance? “Do you not care that we are perishing?” the disciples asked the sleeping Lord. But He had already said, “we’re going over to the other side.” (Matthew 8, Mark 4. Luke 8)

  • Yes, good point nick r… I have heard Andrew many times and this is one of my most favourite/memorable sermons of his… despite the amillenialist/postmillenialist nuances that it moves towards – it is great stuff and the main aspects of the message can be interpreted within a pre-millenialist view – I find it even more assuring and liberating

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
