Generational Curses

In Evil, Generational Curses, Psychiatry, Spiritualist, witchcraft on May 19, 2019 at 8:45 am

God has led me to deviate from the regular postings on Proverbs and put forth these three posting to remain for two weeks, at which time we will return to our study of Proverbs.

Please feel free to contact regarding these posts, as the subject matters are very serious.

Generational Curses

I do believe there are such things as generational curses and demonic influences, which are passed down or transferred from one generation to another. I believe this is why you find the actions of the parents or grandparents repeated in the children or grandchildren. I do not believe it to be just or simply genetic or environmental; because you can find this in families where either a] the generations have been too far apart to have enough contact for environment to play a part or b] it can be found in families where the children are not connected biologically to the parent.

Even the practice of psychiatry promotes the idea of generational curses, yet they would never call it such, because they a] Assume family history will determine a person mental capabilities. b] Promote and teach cognitive correction in order to break the cycles of addiction, abuse, etc. in families, which is actually a biblical principle; hence the reason it works. c] Psychiatry believes that it actually takes several generations for an unhealthy mental health cycle to be broken in or dissipate from a family.

Now let’s look at some Scriptures on the matter. We will look at two verses, which speak to generational curses and one that addresses the sovereignty of our environment.

Exodus 20:5 (NKJV) – In relation to and inclusive in the Ten Commandments.

5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,

The principle of this verse can also be found in Deuteronomy 5:9

hate = in the Hebrew

8130. שָׂנֵא sânê˒, saw-nay’; a prim. root; to hate (personally):— enemy, foe, (be) hate (-ful, -r), odious, × utterly.

Note:

Notice in this verse that God addresses the issue of generational curses within the framework of the Ten Commandments. God loves us so much and longs for our fellowship so much that He describes Himself as a “jealous God” who does want His children bowing down to or serving anything other than Him. He makes it clear that those who choose to do this are exhibiting a form of hate toward Him and that hate will result in damage, in a variety of forms, for three to four generations. The hate that God speaks of, as you can see by the Hebrew definition, is a personal choice to become an enemy or foe of God.

Exodus 34:6–7 (NKJV) – When Moses was being given the second set of Tablets in the Wilderness, after the Hebrew children of God had left Egypt.

6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, 7 keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”

The principle of this verse can also be found in Numbers 14:18

iniquity = in the Hebrew

5771. עָוֹן ˓âvôn, aw-vone’; or

עָווֹן ˓âvôwn (2 Kings 7:9; Psa. 51:5 [7]), aw-vone’; from 5753; perversity, i.e. (moral) evil:— fault, iniquity, mischief, punishment (of iniquity), sin.

Note:

Here in this verse we see that God is making a distinction between being forgiving, patient, and merciful while still allowing the guilty and consequences which come with sin. God wants His people to understand that their sin does not just effect, and affect, them but it also impacts the generations that will follow them. It is almost like say, ‘Ha if you do not care about yourself maybe you will care about your children and your children’s children and their children; maybe that will motivate you to live a godly life.’ Here the focus is on how one lives, verses what we saw in Exodus 20:5 in relation to whom one serves. If you look at the word “iniquity” in the Hebrew, you see the definition is inclusive of moral perversity and evil as well as mischief and sin. There is a sense of willful and stubborn rebellion against God’s principles and against a godly lifestyle.

Acts 17:26 (NKJV) – Paul expressing the sovereignty of God in people’s environment.

26 And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,

habitation [KJV] and dwellings [NKJV] = in the Greek

Strong’s Greek #2733 2733. κατοικία katŏikia, kat-oy-kee´-ah; residence (properly the condition; but by implication the abode itself):— habitation.

Note:

Next one must keep in mind that despite all that we see about generational curses in the verses above that God Himself has determined the time, in which a person will live, where they will live, and under or in what conditions they will live. That means the parents that they have or had were given by God for His Divine Purpose. Wherever, however, and within the conditions we grew up were no accident they were that way for a reason which God intents for His use and His glory if we allow ALL to be redeemed by Him for His Glory. Nothing has escaped His notice or sovereign power.

Prayer for Renouncement of Evil

In Evil, Generational Curses, Prayer, Psychiatry, Spiritualist, witchcraft on May 19, 2019 at 8:39 am

God has led me to deviate from the regular postings on Proverbs and put forth these three posting to remain for two weeks, at which time we will return to our study of Proverbs.

Please feel free to contact regarding these posts, as the subject matters are very serious.

Prayer for Renouncement of Evil

Heavenly Father I come to you in the name of Jesus. Please hear my prayer because of the work of Christ on the Cross and allow the blood of Christ to cover my every sin and need.

I thank you for your Holiness, your Presence, your omnipotence and your great love. You as the Creator of all things are worthy of praise and honor for you alone have dominion over all things and people. I thank you for the freewill you have given me and through that freewill I have erred against you and that is why I seek you today.

I have both knowingly and unknowing sinned against your will and therefore against you. I have both embraced and been exposed to “evil” found in the form of partaking in the things of Satan, the occult, witchcraft, and the like, which your Word makes clear you hate. Having repented of these things and no longer wishing to have anything to do with any of them; I have come to you to seek your forgiveness, to bleed the blood of Jesus over both those sins and the effects upon my life as a result of those sins, and to enter into covenant with you that I will not partake in any of these sins again, nor will I allow myself to be exposed to them. I will flee in the presence of such sins and thus flee from the Enemy. May my change of heart on these matters be full and complete through your sovereign grace.

Father I ask you now to bring to my remembrance any and all evil you wish me to renounce.

[Pause and allow God to show you anything more you are not aware of to date.]

I now ask in Jesus’ name for your forgiveness of the following sins and I thank you that you are faithful and just to forgive me and cleanse me from all unrighteousness.

I plead the precious blood of Jesus over the following sins.

[Now specifically pray for everything God reveals to you, or has revealed to you, and ask forgiveness for each individual act of evil. Pleading the blood of Jesus over each and every act. – Do not pray generically or as a general group of “all evil”, be specific and deal with each category of demonic activity.]

Forgive me for my involvement in __________________ and through the blood of Jesus break the power, thus cancelling the effects and affects of this evil on my life.

Forgive me for my exposure to _________________ and through the blood of Jesus break the power, thus cancelling the effects and affects of this evil on my life.

Forgive me for _________________ and through the blood of Jesus break the power, thus cancelling the effects and affects of this evil on my life.

Forgive me Lord for allowing evil to have any access to my life, mind, heart, soul, and spirit breaking its power and influence in my life forever. Forgive me Lord for all those acts of evil for which my mind and heart cannot recall at this time and break the power of those influences within my life as well, through the blood of Jesus.

Father in the name of Jesus I seek your forgiveness for my participation in evil and the things of your Enemy, Satan. I renounce any and all effects, and affects, of these things and I plead the blood of Jesus over my life and myself. I ask you to place a hedge of protection around me so that evil and the Enemy can no longer harm or influence me. I ask that you give me an obedient heart that I might follow your will from this moment forward. I ask you to give me eyes to see and discern evil from good and the power to resist the evil. Increase my capacity to understand what you want, and do not want, for me in my daily life.

Jesus cover me with your blood as I stand against the works of the Devil.

Satan I speak to you now through the blood, and the power of the blood, of Jesus. In the name of Jesus, I renounce you and any power or influence you have gained in life through open doors, doors of evil, which I have opened or that has been opened by events or other people. I am a Child of God and therefore, you have no place or standing in my life. Therefore, by the blood of Jesus any and all effects and affects you have had on, or have on, my live are now broken, no longer effective and shall no longer disturb or influence my life. You and your workers, any and all demonic presence, must leave my life and I close the door of my spirit to any influence past, presence, or future. The blood of Jesus has broken the power of your work and you are overcome by the Blood of the Lamb. Flee from me now in the Name of Jesus; you no longer have any place in my life.

Jesus I thank you for your death on the cross and the forgiveness that sacrifice affords me. I thank you for your blood and the power over the Enemy that blood has bought me. I thank you that you have interceded for me with the Father and obtained my forgiveness for these and all my sins. I thank you that through the cross I am set free from the negative and evil effects/affects these acts have had on my life. I am grateful to you for it all and for your love. Thank you for dealing with my Enemy, Satan, and for rendering his work in my life useless and void. I shall always be grateful beyond measure. Father thank you for the Son and the work of the Son. God thank you for your Almighty Provision found in the blessed work of Calvary.

I ask all these thing in the precious name of Jesus,

Amen and Amen.

Evil Transforms (If We Let It) – Pt. 15 – False Gods / Wicca

In this piece we will explore the first half of chapter six of David Kupelian’s book, How Evil Works. Please find a link below where you can purchase the book from Amazon, should you desire to do so. Here are some of the highlights regarding false gods, witchcraft, and Wicca as found within this chapter.

Witchcraft and Wicca are they the same? No, they are not the same. Are they both spiritually dangerous? Yes, they are.

Witchcraft goes back to ancient times, as the author point out, and Wicca dates to the 1950’s. Witchcraft has many varieties that rise from diverse cultures and worldviews. Wicca is a modern nature-based religion founded by Gerald Gardner, and Englishman. Most “witches” today in the Western world, are followers of the Wiccan religion, per Kupelian’s journalistic research.

According to the description of Wicca, written by Wiccans themselves, they worship “Nature, often personified as Mother Earth and Father Sky.” According to Wiccan’s themselves, it is not about worshipping Satan. They state, “It is very important to be aware that Wiccans do not in any way worship or believe in “Satan,” “the Devil,” or any similar entities.” Their view of Satan is simply that, “”Satan” is a symbol of rebellion against and inversion of the Christian and Jewish traditions.” They are indifferent to the Bible. Their practice of magic involves “direction and use of “psychic energy.” “Wiccans employ such means as dance, chant, creative visualization, and hypnosis to focus and direct psychic energy for the purpose of healing, protection, and aiding member in various endeavors.” The “Wiccan Rede” prohibits witches from harming others. Again, all of this information comes from their own description of their religion.

The idea that the Country of The United States of American would recognize witches, Wiccans, as a legitimate religion tells me what pathetic condition the government of this country is in. Yes, we are still the greatest country on earth, in my view, but we have deteriorated to a horrible degree. The idea that our government recognizes such practices as religion is proof, to me, of that deterioration.

The New Testament makes it clear that witchcraft in any form is a sin. “Galatians 5:19–21 (KJV-AV)

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”

As the author notes, it is not difficult to understand why people think an invisible spirit can help them with their bad luck and bring blessings to their lives in the form of health, happiness and prosperity. They believe this because it is the truth. There is such a God who does this for His people, the ONE TRUE GOD, Jesus the Christ, Jehovah God. The Almighty, is the REAL God, the all-powerful and all-knowing Creator of ALL of mankind (created in His image) and the sustainer of the universe, everything in the universe – including you, including me.

We are created in God image for His purpose. He has instilled in us a desire to seek His influence in our lives, as the author accurately notes. Either we submit to that inner desire and discover Christ – followed by submitting to His inner leading in all things, or we live pointless, deceived, and ultimately wasted lives.

I will leave off here, and start the next piece with, a direct quote from Kupelian as found in chapter six. “Here is the problem. If for any reason we’re not ready or willing to submit to God – a state of honest transparency that tends to annihilate our selfish pride and bring us the blessing of genuine happiness, contentment, and understanding – then by default we find ourselves attracted to false gods. That is, to worldviews and weird religions that fill our spiritual void while also sustaining our secret rebellion against our Heavenly Father. And for many Americans today, that means New Age or pagan religion.”

In the next posting we will examine the second half of chapter six of David Kupelian’s book, How Evil Works. That piece will confront why people seek false gods.

How Evil Works

Evil can be understood and overcome before it transforms our country entirely. Evil can be understood and overcome before it transforms someone you know or even you. Knowledge is power and without it we will perish. We need to be extremely knowledgeable when it comes to evil.

Hosea 4:6 (NKJV)

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.

Because you have rejected knowledge,

I also will reject you from being priest for Me;

Because you have forgotten the law of your God,

I also will forget your children.

The Marketing of Evil

Evil is sold in our society just as anything else might be sold, through marketing. Satan has marketed his product through those willing and those ignorant to his schemes. Through his craftiness he has turned the minds of even Believers to think that tolerance of his evil is some form of love. In so doing he has transformed to a large degree the once Devout Church and transformed our society to an enormous degree. He has not accomplished this without his workers however, the willing, the sold out for their own gain, and the ignorant masses following blindly behind the majority.

Truth in Love – blog entry

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

For those saints who have been around for a while let me ask you a question. Do you ever look around at what is going on in some church congregations, who call themselves Christian, and just shake your head in disbelief? Do you look in the faces of the Christian generation[s] after you and see the vacancy, which is meant to be filled with Christ’s Truth and Passion? Why? Why then, are these things as they are in God’s House? Because the secular world has moved in and took up residence.

Granted, if you are waiting to find a perfect spiritual leader or you are waiting for the perfect church congregation, or if you are simply looking for a spiritual leader with whom you can agree all the time, then you will be looking for a very long time. If we have a brain in our head, we will never agree with another person all the time, nor will we ever find a perfect spiritual leader apart from Christ or perfect saints with whom to fellowship. That however, does not mean we cozy up with a cobra or for that matter partake in what is ungodly and/or worldly to placate our spiritual leader or our brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus.

The world, worldly ways, and even new age type practices have entered into almost ninety percent of the American Christian Churches in one form or another. Some are very obvious and some are much more subtle. The individuals speaking out against these practices are growing fewer and fewer and the younger generations are being pulled in deeper and deeper. They have no clue that they are being manipulated and lead astray from Truth – for what they are being told is easier to follow and makes them feel like they are part of something big and important and they are desperate for that type of feeling. The cost for that will one day have to be paid however, and when the tab comes, I fear it will drive them from Christianity for good. Why? Because you cannot manipulate God and that in part is what they are being taught to attempt and do in one form or another. When it all comes crashing down and they one day find out it is not going to work, who will get the blame, not the leaders who taught them incorrectly but most likely God and it is God who will be abandoned. It however, is not God’s fault; it is the fault of those who have chosen to manipulate them for their benefit.

An Example:

Let me start by making a couple of things very clear. Do I believe you should attend a local church? Yes. Do I believe you should understand that congregation’s doctrine and mission, hopefully being in support of both on most points? Yes. Do I believe you should tithe into the work of the spiritual leadership that feeds and ministers to you? Yes. Should you love and support your brothers and sisters in Christ? Yes. Should you allow yourself to be manipulated into any or all of these practices? No!

I have personally witness the weekly practice of cult like manipulation in a Christian Church with a spiritual leader who I believe actually to know God but this area of their leadership is woefully in error. This congregation is weekly exhorted to join hand at the end of service, just before the offering is taken, and recite what amount to nothing more than a new age mantra that is mean to basically brainwash them into believing its content. In essence it indicated that they partnered with that local church in that church’s mission and that they faithfully give ten percent of their income, aka the tithe, to that specific church and in return God is going to do for them.

Now people may be able to be manipulated by brainwashing them through repetition of a creed – I am generous to call it that. You may be able to make them feel more loved and like they are a part of something much bigger by having them join hand while doing so. However, you are not going to make God act on their behalf because you are manipulating them – for the God of the Universe, the Creator of all things, will not have demands placed on Him and will not bow to manipulation. Manipulation comes from a Jezebel type spirit and is a form of witchcraft – the Bible says God hates the practice of witchcraft.

Again, love your local congregation. Respect your spiritual leaders – as they follow God and His Word. Give your tithe from a clean heart and without showmanship. Do not however let yourself become someone else’s drone. Yes, it is harder to stand up and be who God created you to be but never forget God created you to follow Him, His Will and Purpose not man’s and it is your thanks back to Your Creator, for your very life, that you do just that.
