I shared with you how words are a main vehicle of blessing or cursing. Your mouth gives expression to what you think, feel and want. Further, our words are a result of who we believe we are! This can work for us …or against us.
Allow the Holy Spirit to bring to your remembrance the sins and iniquities of your parents and forefathers, and confess them. Personally forgive your forefathers of their iniquities. Ask God to forgive specific sins of your forefathers. Make a faith decision to forgive and cancel their debt – including those who have wounded you by their sins and iniquities!
“Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.’
For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”
Matthew 6:12-15 NIV
Confess your participation in the iniquities of your family tree. Accept the responsibility of your own iniquities. The Word of God reveals in Proverbs 28:13 (KJV):
“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper:
but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.”
Ask God to forgive and cleanse you. Remember what He promises in 1 John 1:7-9 (KJV):
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
Submit your will to God:
“Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed — not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence — continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.”
Phillipians 2:12-13 (NIV)
“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
James 4:7 (NIV)
Know that Jesus suffered the curse and overcame the devil for you. Allow God to heal you of a sin-consciousness into a righteous-consciousness mindset. Understand that God has all authority and delegated it to Jesus – who has given it to you as a believer. Use the authority of the name of Jesus!
“Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”
Titus 2:14 (KJV)
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions,
and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you;
but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”
Luke 10:19-20 (KJV)
“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils;
they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents;
and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them;
they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”
Mark 16:17-18 (KJV)
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
Revelation 12:11 (KJV)
Declare the power of the blood of Jesus. Declare that your family’s generational curses are broken!
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us:
for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ;
that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV)
Speak blessings over your life and the lives of your children. Remember your words have the power to bless or to curse!
At “new birth”, you receive the power, the right and the authority to become a child of God. However, your authority is effective only if it is exercised. Salvation is an event, and it is a process of becoming made new in Christ. The potential of the “new birth” at salvation is unlimited! What you will become or see released in your life is determined by the extent to which you exercise your God-given authority. Break the pattern once and for all by the power of the blood of Jesus!
