Gementria in Christ's Geneaolgy


















Part 1

By B.A. Livingstone

It is without apology that this website places great emphasis on the High calling of God in Christ Jesus as distinct from all other callings in God’s Word. Within Paul’s prison epistles are found the revelation of the Mystery which from ages and generations had been hid in God (Eph. 2:9). A mystery which reveals for the first time that a Hope and Calling lie far above all heavens and have nothing to do with this earth, the new Covenant, the New Jerusalem, or Israel . A calling which reveals that its adoption and election antedates all time, having taken place before the foundation of the world, (Gen. 1:2), a claim no other calling can make.

     Within Paul’s prison epistles (Eph. Phil. Col. And 2 Tim.) we no longer find earthly blessings or Abrahamic covenants, but ALL Spiritual blessing in heavenly places. No longer do we look forward to an earthly kingdom where the Son of Man shall sit on the throne of his father David as did the Apostles. No longer do we await the “promised Land”, nor the city that cometh down from heaven,” as did those who were of the seed of Abraham and formed from the foundation of the world. Instead we set our affections on “things above” where Christ sitteth at the right hand of  God where we have been raised and seated together in the heavenly places.

 It is Paul’s prayer that believers are enlightened to this truth, knowing that ONLY God can illuminate the mind to these glorious and wonderful truths.

 Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,   Eph 1:16-18

 It is in this spirit that we set forth  the following as a guide and path to help answer those who ask, “Why do you say there are three spheres of  blessing and three inheritances?”

 Paul tells us in Ephesians that, “we have obtained an inheritance”, an inheritance which is located in a sphere FAR ABOVE ALL HEAVENS (Eph. 2:6). Let us look therefore at the other two and learn marvelous truths that will better enable us to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God. Eph. 3:19

 We will attempt to show that not only are there three spheres of blessing to which a particular family of God is called, but will further show in which dimension they will be realized and with which body they will come with. It must be noted to the believer that God has set forth a plan of the ages for a REASON, to OBTAIN  something that He did not have to begin with. It is to easy to say, that the eternal purpose of the ages is to gain back that which God knew would be lost to Satan's rebellion, only to gain it back again. No, there is far more to God’s plan. We can start with the knowledge that God created the HEAVEN and the EARTH, that He might gather together in one all things in Christ BOTH which are in heaven and earth. Here the reader should take note that here are TWO Spheres to which God must fill, and we submit that the celestial sphere of principalities, powers, might’s and dominions that dwell in the HEAVENS will be included as the THIRD sphere. With that said, let us look at scripture and the three inheritance and spheres of blessings, each with a corresponding dimension and body:

  1. The EARTH and the PROMISE LAND  to Abraham and his SEED. 2nd dimension, Terrestrial
  2. The NEW JERUSALEM – Wedding garment for the BRIDE of Christ. 3rd dimension -Celestial
  3. FAR ABOVE ALL HEAVENS – The ONE NEW MAN. 4th dimension, Like His glorious body




Let us look at the LAND which was promised to Abraham and his seed.  Genesis and Exodus reveal that God had dealt with the nations or Gentile world  for 2000 years and had given them up and over to call out a peculiar Nation to be His own. For this cause God called one man out of the Ur of Chaldees named Abram and made an everlasting covenant with him and gave him an inheritance of what was to be known as the “Promised land”.

 And he said unto him, I am the LORD that brought thee out of Ur of the Chaldees, to give thee this land to inherit it. Gen 15:7

In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates: Gen 15:18

 This was the blessing of Abraham and his seed,

And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham.  Gen 28:4

 A blessing and inheritance that would be forever,

And I will give unto thee, and to thy seed after thee, the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God Gen 17:8 

Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever. Exo. 32:13

 In Exodus we learn that the seed of Abraham would be called  the WIFE of God after He birthed them as a nation and washed them (Baptized 1 Cor. 10:2) with water in the Red Sea (all birth is by water).  God then marries Israel at Mt. Sinai and clothes her nakedness with the Tabernacle of the priesthood,

Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.

Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil.

I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk. (The materials of the tabernacle and the priesthood) Eze 16:8-10

 The covenant that God made with Abram established his seed as a Nation which would be a kingdom of priests here on earth as administrators or channel of blessing to all the other nations “on earth” ( Exodus 19:5-6). This can be seen in the 12 wells of water representing the 12 tribes which feed the 70 palm trees or 70 nations,

 And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters. Exo 15:27

 For this cause, God brings Israel and set them in the PROMISED LAND flowing with milk and honey and separated the twelve tribes by lot in the land.

 Notwithstanding the land shall be divided by lot: according to the names of the tribes of their fathers they shall inherit. Num 26:55

.And ye shall divide the land by lot for an inheritance among your families: and to the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer ye shall give the less inheritance: every man's inheritance shall be in the place where his lot falleth; according to the tribes of your fathers ye shall inherit. Num 33:54

 Words could not be more clear. God will keep His promises and will restore Israel again to her land and betroth her again unto Himself in righteousness,

And I will betroth thee unto me for ever; yea, I will betroth thee unto me in righteousness, and in judgment, and in loving kindness, and in mercies.

I will even betroth thee unto me in faithfulness: and thou shalt know the LORD. Hos 2:19-20

And this will take place here on EARTH,

And I will sow her unto me in the earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God. Hos 2:23 

Once in the LAND, Israel shall attend to her duties as a kingdom of priests in the Kingdom of heaven, or Heavens rule of earth,

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Mat 5:3-5

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Mat 6:10

  a truth Nebuchadnezzar faintly saw,

And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots; thy kingdom shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have known that the heavens do rule. Dan 4:26 

We hope sufficient evidence has been given the reader to establish the sphere of promise and blessing that was promised to Abraham and his seed is the PROMISED LAND or the EARTH.


 In this sphere of Abraham’s inheritance we find a corresponding “dimension” and a “body” of resurrection. In Genesis we read,

 And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:

For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.

And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.

Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee. Gen 13:14-17 

Abraham is told to walk the LENGTH and BREADTH of the land, or two dimensions in a three dimensional world. Why only TWO dimensions? Because the inheritance that Abraham’s seed was promised was a promise and a hope of the LAND here on earth. A promise that all Israelites HOPED would come through resurrection to be realized on the Earth.

But when Paul perceived that the one part were Sadducees, and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee: of the hope and resurrection of the dead I am called in question.

And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God, unto our fathers: Act 23:6, 24:15, 26:6

 Which hope was set forth in Ezekiel,

The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,

And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.

And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.

Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.

Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:

And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.

And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.

Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.

Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,

And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD. Eze 37:1-14 

 Therefore the bodies of this Hope and Promise are to be resurrected with “terrestrial “ bodies which are unable to ascend and move up in down in a three dimensional world. This calling will be restricted by the very nature of there bodies to walk upon the earth bound by the forces of gravity in a two dimensional fashion, unable to travel to the stars.

 The calling of which this Hope and inheritance will be realized is a calling that was “FROM” the foundation of the world (Mt. 25:34) and involves a King and His kingdom exercising heavens “rules” here on earth with a peculiar nation ministering these peculiar laws and statutes to the 70 nations. This is the time of the millennium when Israel’s kingdom shall once again be restored and the answer to the twelve apostles question will have be realized,

When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? Act 1:6

And when they shall hear,

the seventh angel sounded….and…..great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. Rev 11:15.

 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. Rev 11:18


This shall be the glorious kingdom that shall be established upon the earth when the Son of God and the Son of Man shall sit upon the throne of David.
