Is Endless Genealogies speaking of the great tribulation? Let's examine.
GENEALOGIES: NUMBERING IN A REGISTER?Ne 7:64 These sought their register among those that were reckoned by genealogy, but it was not found: therefore were they, as polluted, put from the priesthood.La 4:14 They have wandered as blind men in the streets, they have polluted themselves with blood, so that men could not touch their garments.
Zep 3:1 Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!
Ne 13:29 Remember them, O my God, because they have defiled the priesthood, and the covenant of the priesthood, and of the Levites.
Ezr 2:62 These sought their register among those that were reckoned by genealogy, but they were not found: therefore were they, as polluted, put from the priesthood.
1Ch 5:1 Now the sons of Reuben the firstborn of Israel, for he was the firstborn; but, forasmuch as he defiled his father’s bed, his birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright.
Ge 25:34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.
1Ch 9:1 So all Israel were reckoned by genealogies; and, behold, they were written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah, who were carried away to Babylon for their transgression.
Re 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Da 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

1Ch 7:9 And the number of them, after their genealogy by their generations, heads of the house of their fathers, mighty men of valour, was twenty thousand and two hundred.
ENDLESS GENEALOGIES: TRIBULATION? CARNAL WARS, STRIFE, CONTENTIONS – FAVORITISM – DETERMINING WHO’S WHO IN THE KINGDOM?
(The focus it seems should be on Christ alone and not on each other)
1Ti 1:4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
Tit 3:9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions <2054>, and strivings about <3163> the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
Ro 13:13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife <2054> and envying.
1Co 3:3 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife <2054>, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
1Co 1:11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions <2054> among you.
1Co 1:12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
1Co 1:13 Is Christ DIVIDED? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?
2Ti 2:23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes <3163>.
Jas 4:1 From whence come wars and fightings <3163> among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
Col 3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.
Ac 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
De 4:19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.
Tit 3:9 and 1Ti 1:4 appear to be speaking of the great tribulation. Endless genealogies speaks of a record of descent or lineage. This would relate to who’s who in the kingdom. Saying that those in the body should not be showing sides or favoritism as to who belongs to which descent, lineage or tribe. Spiritually it would be debating on who is saved or not (reckoned among the 144,000) or worshiping men. And worshiping men (sun, moon and stars) is what the church does in tribulation. The focus should be on Christ alone.
