Picking from the previous post……..
UNGODLY SPIRIT AND SOUL TIES
Another area that can create a stronghold is ungodly spirit and soul ties. These are relationships that are ungodly and which control us more than the Spirit of God. Jonathan and David had a Godly spirit and soul tie.
🐦Unforgiveness also creates spirit and soul ties. We can even develop a spirit-soul tie with our pain or addictions. Our pain has become such a part of us and our identity, “Who will we be if we give it up?”
🐦We can have spirit and soul ties with those who have abused or damaged us. We are ruled more by them and what they did to us than the Lord. What they did consumes us.
We may have been date raped. We lost our virginity yet somehow there is a bond. What is it? One part of us hates them for what they did but another part feels connected. Sexual activity creates spirit and soul ties.
1 Corinthians 6:16 says, “Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her: For the two,“ He says, “shall become one flesh.”
Another area that results in curses and strongholds of the enemy is generational sin. Yes, Jesus Christ came to redeem us from the curse (Galatians 3:13), but have we appropriated our redemption? Everything that was done on the cross, takes process. The world is not saved simply because Jesus died on the cross.
There are many unsaved people. Why? Because they have not personally appropriated by faith and have not done what the Word of God says related to salvation. Healing must be appropriated, deliverance must be appropriated and our redemption must be appropriated.
How do we appropriate redemption of the curse of the law related to generational sin? Simple, we stand in the gap and repent.
Leviticus 36:39-42 “And those of you who are left shall waste away in their iniquity in your enemies ‘lands; also in their fathers ‘iniquities, which are with them, they shall waste away. But if they confess their iniquity and iniquity of their fathers, with their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, and that they also have walked contrary to Me, and that I also have walked contrary to them and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if their uncircumcised hearts are humbled, and they accept their guilt – then I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and my covenant with Isaac, and my covenant with Abraham I will remember; I will remember the land”
That’s pretty powerful!
Nehemiah 9:2 “and they stood and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers.”
All through the Bible whenever there were times of restoration and refreshing, there was a confession of sin, not just personal but ancestral as well. Generational curses are powerful.
In Exodus 20:4-5, it tells us that the curse for idolatry goes to the third and fourth generation. In Deuteronomy 23:2, it says that the curse for illegitimacy goes to the tenth generation.
Exodus 20:4-5 ‘You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,
Deuteronomy 23:2 No one born of a forbidden marriage nor any of their descendants may enter the assembly of the Lord, not even in the tenth generation.
They are unable to enter in to the assembly of God. Many people have trouble with entering into the presence of God or being committed in the church because the enemy takes this legal ground and wars against them. We take away his legal ground through standing in the gap and repenting.
After working with hundreds of people, I can assure you generational curses as a result of generational sin is real. It is so easy to see once you are aware of it. Generational sin can also get magnified as it comes down through the years. In the Bible, when it talks about the different kings, it tells us that some were evil, and their sons even more evil, and their son even more evil.
Then finally someone makes a choice for righteousness and tears down the high places. We have to tear down the high places of lust, sexual perversion, illegitimacy, fornication, pornography, sexual abuse, incest, etc. in our family lines not only for our sake but for the generations to come.
SINS OF THE OCCULT
Any type of divination, superstition, witchcraft, Masonic involvement, etc. create a major open door for the enemy to bring curses in the sexual arena. They should always be included whenever repenting of sin is done.
You may be adopted and do not know anything about your parents or ancestry, but that doesn’t matter, God still can show you the generational sins of your family.
You can discern some just by knowing what sins you have entered in to or have been tempted by, others He will just reveal to you.
