Introduction

Greetings...
The theme of our current series of lessons it “Open Eyes.”
It’s based off of which reads...
Psalm 119:18 ESV
18 Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.
I hope to convey our wondrous God through His Word over the next several lessons that we may all grow closer to Jehovah.
Last week we “went back to the beginning” i.e. creation and noticed the magnificent love of God.
God created the entire universe for us personally and oh what a universe it is.
God created us, not because He had to, but because He loves us.
This week we shift from seeing God’s love in creation to traveling through the Scriptures to examine God’s love in the Scheme of Redemption.
The path God travels throughout time to bring about the perfect moment in time for the Word to become flesh is fascinating.
I pray our eyes are open to how amazing our God is in this endeavor.

The Scheme Of Redemption

What does the word scheme mean?

The word scheme, as we are using it, just means “organized plan.”
God created an organized plan to bring redemption to man.

What does the word redemption mean?

The word redemption simply means “to buy back.”
God “paid something” to get us back from where we were.

So the scheme of redemption is...

The plan God organized and put together that would eventually allow for us, His creation, to be bought back.
When we sin we are separated from God.
Isaiah 59:1–2 ESV
1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear; 2 but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear.
After Adam & Eve sinned God put together a plan that would allow man and God to no longer be separated by sin.
Genesis 3:15 ESV
15 I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”
That plan would take a while to reach the “fullness of time” or “perfect time” for Jesus to come to the earth, in the flesh.
Galatians 4:4 ESV
4 But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law,
That plan would be fulfilled when Jesus redeemed us from our sins.
Ephesians 1:7–10 ESV
7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight 9 making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

So what is one of the ways we can see the scheme of redemption?

The Genealogies

The genealogies?

I know it can seem monotonous , not very interesting, to read the genealogies in the Bible but they are there for a purpose and that purpose is actually amazing. (Look at ; )
It’s amazing because the point of this genealogy is to prove God’s trust worthiness in the scheme of redemption.

The genealogies prove God keeps His Word.

God promised Adam and Eve that someone would come from Eve and crush the serpents head that had deceived her.
Genesis 3:15 ESV
15 I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”
proves this true.
God promised Abraham that the earth would be “bless” through him.
Genesis 12:1–3 ESV
1 Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. 2 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
Matthew 1:17 ESV
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David were fourteen generations, and from David to the deportation to Babylon fourteen generations, and from the deportation to Babylon to the Christ fourteen generations.
Matthew 1:
proves this true as well.
God promised David that his throne would be established forever.
2 Sam
2 Samuel 7:16 ESV
16 And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me. Your throne shall be established forever.’ ”
Psalm 132:11 ESV
11 The Lord swore to David a sure oath from which he will not turn back: “One of the sons of your body I will set on your throne.
Looking at the genealogy this is exactly what happened, isn’t it.
Acts 2:29–31 ESV
29 “Brothers, I may say to you with confidence about the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 30 Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants on his throne, 31 he foresaw and spoke about the resurrection of the Christ, that he was not abandoned to Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption.
Acts 2:29-

Summery

What does all this say about our God?
It teaches us that the God who loved us enough to create the universe for us, also loved us enough to help us get back to Him after we fall to sin.
Make no mistake, if we live long enough, we will sin and when this happens we are bought by Satan destine for hell.
Romans 3:23 ESV
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
Romans 6:23 ESV
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Yet Jesus was sent in the flesh () to redeem us or buy us back from the hands of Satan with his own blood.
Ac 2
Acts 20:28 NKJV
28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.
1 Corinthians 6:20 ESV
20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
1 Cor

Conclusion

The genealogies in the Bible are not there to bore us in reading but for us to study and see the amazing love of God.
God loves each of us so much that He painstakingly took the time to map out every person that it would take to bring about Jesus, just so He could have a proper relationship with us again.
Invitation
Isaiah 59:1–2 ESV
1 Behold, the Lord’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save, or his ear dull, that it cannot hear; 2 but your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden his face from you so that he does not hear.
Philippians 2:6–7 ESV
6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.
