Jesus Everlasting Father

How And Why Jesus Is Called Everlasting Father

“So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.”  Matthew 1:17

If you count from Abraham to David and from David until Babylon there are 14 generations.  If you count from Babylon unto Christ there are 13 generations.  Where is the fourteenth generation?

“A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.” Psalms 22:30

“Behold, I and the children whom the LORD hath given me are for signs and
for wonders in Israel from the LORD of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion.” Isaiah 8:18

“And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children
which God hath given me.” Hebrews 2:13

“Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou
shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall
prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.” Isaiah 53:10

 “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”  John 1:12

ALL who receive Christ are sons of God.  They are the fourteenth generation.  The children the Heavenly Father gave to Christ.  The seed that shall serve Him is accounted to the Lord as a generation.

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall
be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor,
The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”  Isaiah 9:6

There is one God eternally existent in three persons:

God the Heavenly Father,

God the Word (the only begotten Son of the Heavenly Father)

God the Holy Spirit.

Jesus is the everlasting father in that he GIVES everlasting life to ALL who believe in him.
