KEY SCRIPTURE: Exodus 20:5 KJV” Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”
In addition to all that we have discussed in line with the above topic, we now look at generational curses. As our key scripture reveals, God visits to the fourth generation, the sin of the fathers. The truth is that under this dispensation of Grace, the blood and sacrifice of our Lord Jesus has made all men guiltless, (2 Corinth 5:19). The devils know very well that our Lord Jesus does not count any of these offenses against us. When a great grandfather worshipped idols in some years ago. These devils will visit the punishment on subsequent generations. Christians in this family line are not left out by these evil entities. It behooves the Christian to exercise authority in prayer to stop these devils. Such demons are very unyielding, because they claim, you were in the loins of that great grandfather and so you deserve to suffer whatever attacks they intend dishing out. Heb 7:10 KJV” For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchizedek met him”.
In the above scripture Levi who was a great grandson of Abraham, is said to have paid tithe to Melchizedek, when Abraham paid tithe to him, it is on this principle that devils would, want to attack any member of that family line. There are instances when the ancestors of certain people did some very heinous sins. These devils would still claim everyone in that lineage must suffer. The devil would not leave you out just because you gave your life to Christ. These devils know they ought not attack you, yet as lawless as they are, they would come against you all the same.
AS A Christian the Bible makes it clear you have been set free from any such satanic aggression. (Col 1:13) 1Peter 1:18 KJV” Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers”. It would be your responsibility to use these same scriptures to pray and dislodge these devils from perpetuating their evil activities against you. If you fail to do so, things may be very miserable with you.
I am in Christ Jesus, and in Him, I am new creature, a kind that never existed. No Devil has the right to attack me, for I was redeemed from the traditions of my fathers. I am delivered from the dominion of darkness, and have been translated into the kingdom of the Son of God. In Jesus name I refuse every attack of these evil spirits.
Colossians 1:13 KJV “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son”:
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
