That is called “inspiration.” Notice that it came from God to man, not from man to man. Peter said the Word of God is not the private interpretation of man, meaning that the Word of God did not originate from man no matter how great an intellect he may be (II Peter -21).
Second, it is not enough to believe in the inspiration of the Scriptures apart from Holy Spirit revelation.
In doing this, God defined the generation of the men of war to be a period of 40 years, e.g., an Israeli man could not go to war pass the age of 60.
When God destroyed the world in the flood judgment of Noah’s day, it rained for 40 days and 40 nights upon the earth.
Therefore, one definition of generation is that it refers to a particular people with their characteristic lineage and identifying traits, which distinguish them from all other races of people.
Truth is not founded upon either an intellectual or emotional presentation of the Word of God that often alters it to make it more acceptable to the hearers, but upon God’s original intent, which is to make us more holy and righteous in our character and conduct.
Notice in Vine’s definition of generation, he says it signifies a BEGETTING OR BIRTH.
In the context of Matthew 24, The Lord Jesus is not speaking of an individual’s birth, but the birth of a nation – a nation of people having the same characteristics, traits, and pursuits and that have a kinship with the land of Israel and the city of Jerusalem unlike any other race of people on the earth.
Am I implying that it is going to happen exactly as I say? I think there are several clues which give us a key in determining the duration of the END TIME GENERATION.
First, the Greek word for generation is “Genea” connected with “Ginomai” which means to become; primarly signifying a begetting or BIRTH; or race of people possessing similar charateristics, pursuits, etc.Before I share with you my understanding of the end generation, I need to explain something that few understand in the body of Christ, even among the Charismatics who emphasize “the spirituals” – the gifts of the Spirit.
