?And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means, clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children?s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation?(Exodus 34:6-7 KJV).
In the process of idol worship, some of our great-grand parents married their unborn children and grand children to idols and water spirits, while some pronounced barrenness upon the fruit of their loins as sacrifices.
In this generation, most people are ignorant of the level of atrocities committed by their parents, grand and great-grand parents. By virtue of Exodus 34:6-7, you already have a spiritual battle to fight to separate yourself from the link to your ancestral sins of bloodshed and untie spiritual yokes, especially when you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and saviour.
Deliverance can be done by the power in the blood of Jesus, which speaketh better things than the blood of Abel. So, every guy and lady has this spiritual battle of breaking negative spiritual foundations, curses and yokes from his or her life. This implies that every husband or wife has possibly, four (two each from mother and father?s family lines) of such battles. Then, add this four to your partner?s four.
Now, if a guy has sexual intercourse with ten ladies in his lifetime, outside legal marital union, he has added 4 times 10=40 of such battles to his own four because he has connected himself to their own ?loads.? Sexual intercourse is a spiritual thing.??What! Know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? For two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit?.(1st?Corinthians?6:16-17 KJV).
The same thing applies to a lady who has sex with ten or more men outside marriage. Sexual promiscuity increases the number of spiritual battles you need to fight in your life and keeps you farther away from the benefits of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
You can now see that physical problems in some marriages today have spiritual undertone. The solutions are: First, accept Jesus Christ as Lord and personal saviour, believing in his power to deliver you. Then, embark on intense deliverance prayers, padded with faith. Thirdly, live a Christlike life in line with the word of God. You will be delivered in Jesus name. Amen.
MEMORY VERSE:?They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death (Revelation?12:11?NIV)
PRAYER POINT:?1. By the power in the blood of Jesus that speaks better things than the blood of Abel, I disengage my life from every ancestral influence in Jesus name. Amen.
2. I break every known and unknown spiritual covenant working against my relationship in Jesus name. Amen
3. By the power in the blood of Jesus, I destroy every monitoring power working against my marriage in Jesus name. Amen.
