Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms
God has opened my eyes even deeper to generational curses this morning. I have been fighting many sins, just to feel that I am in bondage and begin to lose Hope that I will ever get out. I began to think of giving up on Christianity and my heart started to get hard again, but God brought me to a place to learn about Spiritual gifts and the Wisdom He gave me through these people who actually operate in the gifts they were given has impacted me greatly and brought me back to Him with my whole heart.
I have always wondered how people are always drawn to the same evil things in their lives, relationships are a huge part of it. The friends and partners you are drawn to always have the same issues, usually the issues you have, which keep you down. I used to think this was embedded in our subconscious and that is how we are drawn. Now this very morning God pointed it out in this Scripture and opened my eyes to the fact that it is because the familiar Spirits (demonic) that attach to us generation to generation draw us to these relationships to keep us down and away from the Power we could have in Christ.
You don’t know at first sight that someone has addiction, emotional issues, or abusive tendencies etc, but the evil Spirits that have been following your family since the beginning of time know. They draw every member of your family to the same situations.
The only way to fight these and break these chains or patterns is to walk with the Lord Jesus and change the pattern for generations to come. You are not only fighting for yourself but also for your children and grandchildren.
There needs to be Power in doing this, there needs to be community, brothers and sisters fighting with you, operating in their gifts.
Satan knows there is Power in gifts, like Prophecy, Tongues, Healing, Faith etc. What has he done? He has made so many Christians believe that these are no longer alive, that they are weird. No wonder there are so many Christians walking around sinning freely and leading others to do the same.
It says through out the NEW TESTAMENT that we are to operate in our gifts. 1 Corinthians 14 speaks all about Prophecy and Tongues, Ephesians 6:18 says to pray in the Spirit,
Why do we deny this Power, why do we let ourselves be deceived?
There are so many Christian activities where there is drinking involved, I can’t participate in these because I am a recovering alcoholic. I think it is sad that I can no longer feel safe at events where I can be with brothers and sisters in Christ. I will not let someone else stand accountable in front of Christ because they caused a sister to sin.
So many people make family trees, researching their history, I would recommend including the patterns of the family down the line to see what curses have attached to you and your children and then you will see what you need to zero in on, using God’s Word and surround yourself with people who walk with Christ, in their gifting to help you break those chains for your children.
People say they love their children, but do they love them enough to fight the darkness and break those chains, sacrificing themselves for their child?
Exodus 20: 4-6 says the only way to break it is to Love God, to Love God is to sacrifice your sin and desires.
To be able to Love an enemy is to realize they are surrounded by familiar Spirits who have bound them and is holding them down, it is not the person and who they were meant to be by God’s design. They are hurting and prisoner in darkness, the longer they have been walking with familiar Spirits, the stronger the hold is.
The only way to break your chains and the chains of another is LOVE! We were taught that LOVE is sacrifice by Jesus Christ who died on the cross for us.
Do you LOVE enough to to sacrifice your desires?
