And I am sure of this: that the One who began a good work among you will keep it growing until it is completed on the Day of the Messiah Yeshua. (Phil. 1:6) CJB
The Old Testament lays the foundation that shows just how mindful God was of His work. Sin against God had corrupted mankind and had literally built a wall of enmity between us and Him. Mankind, once perfected at creation, was now tainted. But God would not let that hinder His work. So He put into motion a way for the wall of separation to be tore down. He did that through protecting the bloodline of special Godly people that extended from Adam, through Noah and onto Abraham and the Son of Promise Isaac, until it ended at the birth of Jesus. If I may, let me ask, "Have you ever taken the time to really study how God was constantly at work to protect that bloodline from spiritual interference so you and I could enjoy the reality of obtaining eternal salvation through Christ?"
This constant working of God reveals to us the vigilant eye He places on every detail of every event that could sidetrack His purposes. Why is this important? Simply because He has never changes. His ever vigilant eye is also on you as He works to construct all events that affect your life in order to move you toward a sure way of Christ-likeness in order that the transformation He works in you can be accomplished. This book expounds on this miraculous work of God He clearly revealed in the timeless pages of the Bible–a work that was so important that it would play out perfectly in assuring the miraculous birth, death and resurrection of Yeshua, the Messiah.

What about Joshua and the conquest of Canaan? Why did God tell him to destroy all who were in the Land of Promise? What happened when the disobeyed?
How about Jeconiah, the last King of Israel? Didn't God tell him that none of his sons would ever rule on the throne of David. If Jesus was of his kingly lineage then how could Jesus be the rightful Messianic King over the Throne of David? Did God lie to Jeconiah?
Why did the gospel writers tell us Jesus would be born of a Virgin? Is it important we understand this?

This book gives you an insight into how God was sovereignly working to keep the lineage that would produce the Messiah pure so that Salvation and Eternal Bliss known only in Christ, could be available to all who would believe and trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior!
