In This Blog I endeaver to share the nuggets OF WISDOM I have received from time spent communing with the lord
Transmitting the generational blessing, instead of generational iniquity -
2 Tim. 1: 5 - 6 - ...when I call to remembrance the GENUINE FAITH that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also. 6. Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
What a beautiful scripture and admonishment of the apostle Paul to Timothy, who was being trained in ministry.
Amazing how many of us have family members that have gone before us in planting seeds of Christ through prayers and examples of genuine faith into our hearts.
We as mothers and grandmothers have this awesome privilege of pouring the life and words of Christ into the next generation. What an honor to pray for our little ones, love on them and speak words of life over them to transmit the generational blessing into them.
We also have mindsets and words that are not biblical that have been spoken over us or acted out, that need to be recognized and plucked up. If negative or doctrinally wrong belief systems are passed down it can create family bondage or iniquity. These can pass from generation to generation if not recognized and overcome by renewing the mind.
The renewing of the mind is a process that comes through understanding and applying the right use of the scriptures and having one's spirit made alive through an intimate relationship with Jesus. (Born again)
Jesus came to break the power of generational iniquity, that is passed through words, by His death, burial and resurrection.
Is. 53: 6 - The Lord has laid on Him, the iniquity of us all.
It's our job to enforce satan's defeat. He will continue to try and hold on to territory gained through the generations. It's our job to recognize how he tries to steal, kill and destroy the blessing of the Lord.
It's our job to take our authority in the name of Jesus, apply the blood of Jesus that was poured out on the alter of God for us, and drive the enemy out of every area of our lives and children's lives through understanding the Spirit anointed word of God!
It can take years of study, mind renewal, and prayer to become mature in understanding how to put on the full armor of God.
Eph. 6: 11 - 12 - Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles (schemings) of the devil. 12. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
What is the armor of God? -
Eph. 6: 14-18 - Stand therefore, having girded your waist with TRUTH, having put on the breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS, (which comes through Christ) 15. And having shod your feet with the preparation of the GOSPEL OF PEACE. 16. Above all, taking the shield of FAITH with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17. And take the helmet of SALVATION, and the SWORD of the SPIRIT, which is the WORD OF GOD; 18. PRAYING ALWAYS with all prayer and supplication in the SPIRIT, (tongues) being watchful to this end with all PERSEVERANCE and supplication for all the saints. (Children of God)
In short, here is the armor;
2. Righteousness (Jesus)
3. Gospel of peace (Between man and God)
6. Sword of the Spirit (Spirit anointed Word of God)
7. Praying always (All prayer in the Spirit)
It takes time to mentor the next generation and dismantle generational strongholds of thoughts and behaviors, by replacing them with the word of God. The outcome is worth the effort. It causes blessings to come down for generations to come!
Scriptures on generational blessings -
Ps. 112: 1-3 - Blessed is the man (or woman) who fears the Lord, who delights greatly in His commandments, 2. His descendants will be mighty on earth; The generation of the upright will be blessed. 3. Wealth and riches will be in his house, and his righteousness ENDURES forever.
Is. 54: 13 - All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.
Ps. 79: 13 - We will show forth Your praise to all generations.
Ps. 105: 8 - He (God) remembers His covenant forever, The word which He commanded for a THOUSAND GENERATIONS.
Luke 1: 50 - ...and His mercy is on those who fear (reverence) Him, from generation to generation.
Ps. 145: 4 - One generation shall praise your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.
Definition of transmission -
The law of transmission comes through words (sound waves, radio waves) and close connected contact. Trans means across. Something passes across from one person or thing to another.
Transmitting the generational blessing instead of iniquity (the curse) into the next generation, is one of a mothers greatest legacies she can give to her children and grandchildren.
The importance of pouring the word (the living and written) into their hearts is of the utmost importance. It's important for every mother to do the "work of the generations."
What do I mean by this? -
It's important for each mom, (biological as well as spiritual) to overcome the iniquity of past generations, in order to transmit the blessing of the Lord to the next. If we don't, it doesn't mean our children won't be blessed, but they will have a much tougher time recognizing the mindsets they are coming up against, and where they are coming from. They will be in the dark on many issues that have been, in some cases, carefully hidden by family members for years or generations.
These mindsets, if left undetected and un confronted become strongholds that can carry into succeeding generations.
God says to come into the light and walk in truth. Light brings knowledge and exposes darkness. Seeing the truth clearly brings freedom and deliverance.
John 8: 32 - "And you shall KNOW the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
Definition of know : (Strongs Concordance) -
To perceive, understand, recognize, gain knowledge, realize, come to know. It is the recognition of truth by personal experience.
It takes the wisdom of God to see the patterns of thoughts and behaviors, both good and bad, that try and seep into following generations and uproot them.
2 Cor. 10:5 - ...casting down arguments and every high thing (thoughts) that exalt itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.
Satan has no new bag of tricks. He is a liar and accuser of the brethren. He keeps strongholds in place through uncontested words that dominate in families and cultures. He is a defeated foe, but we must enforce his defeat by speaking and living the word of God.
Is. 6: 6 - 1 - Behold this has touched your lips. (The coals from the throne of God) Your iniquity is taken away, your sin is purged. (All by words that come from our lips)
Jesus came to deliver us from iniquity. In order to receive this deliverance and enforce satans defeat, we must fill our mouths with God's words. We must speak rightly over our children and families.
The enemy tries to press our flesh and emotions to get us speaking what we "see and feel" with our natural eyes, rather than what God says in a given situation.
We need to continue to proclaim God's word over our children and grandchildren in order to transmit the blessing of God, and break the chains of family iniquity.
Prov. 18: 21 - Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
