"Our ancestors sinned. Now they are gone, [but] we have to take the punishment for their wickedness" Lamentations 5:7
Wow! The minute we're conceived, we're strapped with generational curses that automatically sets limitations and restrictions on us. "Indeed, I was born guilty. I was a sinner when my mother conceived me" Psalm 51:5.
Isn't it amazing how you spend the majority of your life, fighting for what's due you on your job, fighting to have a good relationship, fighting with your family members, fighting for peace, fighting for contentment, just fight, fighting, fighting!
What is so interesting, is that our fights is as a result of the ancestral baton that has been handed down to us via our ancestors. You see, even though they've passed on we still carry the burden of the known or unknown covenants they've made with the powers of darkness.
The bottom line, the root cause of the majority of your problems has its origin in our past generations. "The LORD is slow to anger and filled with unfailing love, forgiving every kind of sin and rebellion. But he does not excuse the guilty. He lays the sins of the parents upon their children; the entire family is affected--even children in the third and fourth generations" Numbers 14:18
IN ORDER TO RECOVER, YOU MUST DISCOVER! DISCOVER WHAT YOU MAY ASK? DISCOVERING THE SOURCE OF YOUR PROBLEM. It is this vital piece of neglected information that has you going around in circles year after year. You've prayed, fasted, spoke in tongues, anointed with oil, prayed the prayer of faith and came into agreement with others but absolutely ZERO happened!
Ask Mamma and them, what was that concoction in a bottle they kept behind the door for "protection" , What was their reason for mopping the floors with turpentine, what was the purpose of sprinkling salt around the house? why were they wearing pieces of garlic, going to bed with their underwear on the wrong side. Why was there a particular room in the home that no one was allowed to enter, in fact it was always locked with strange smell emitting from it. Well my friends, these are bus some of the information that you were not made privy to that is more than likely the source of your stubborn negative matter.
What about when your parents said to you, with such passion, "you'll never amount to anything" "You'll suck the seeds of sorrow" "You will regret these days" "You are so dumb, stupid, ignorant, foolish" My friend it is these types of saying that was said and done out of anger and frustration that we're living today.
Based on the way our ancestors lived, the reality is they were writing the scripts to our lives when they performed and spoke these evils in and over our lives ignorantly. Many of them through their greed, revenge, competitiveness and their quest to seek for a better life outside of Jesus Christ etc. made the life changing foolish decision to consulted these destiny destroyers, such as witchcraft and Voodoo practitioners to perform sacrifices and forge evil demonic covenants, which automatically enslaved their entire family blood line to these evil altars. This in turn program the life of that family particularly their future generations to a life of hardship, fail marriages, barrenness, sickness, anti-progress, failure, depression etc. all in exchange for temporary and selfish comforts.
The scriptures were clear when it said, "Our Ancestors have sinned and now they are dead, but we the current generation are left to carry the burden of what they've done" Lamentations 5:7. God, further warned that anyone that chose to worship Idols (witchcraft, Voodoo etc), that he will visit the iniquities of their ancestors on the children and up to the third and fourth generation, Exodus 20:3-5 , "Father reveal to me the origin of this persistent cycle of defeat and failure that has been going on in my life. Father just like your servant Nehemiah, I confess my sins and the sins of my ancestors, Nehemiah. 9:2. Lord I stand in agreement with your word which says in Leviticus 25:40, “But if they confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers in their treachery that they committed against me, and also in walking contrary to me" lord please forgive the iniquities of my ancestors and break the wicked covenants, contracts and agreements that was forged in the past. Father destroy by fire every evil voice, every evil word and every evil sacrifice that has been speaking against my destiny in the name of your son and my savior Jesus Christ!
So, for the older folks, who loves to speak so condescendingly about the present generation, make no mistake this same generation of which you speak so negatively, are the fruits of the seeds you planted in your time...........
