What is your Family!

The understanding of one’s backgrounds is very important. It makes or mars one’s spirituality. The things of the world are carnal or physical. It means these are temporary. But things of the spiritual are permanent and eternal.
Background of idolatry, witchcraft, bloodshed, curses, sexual immorality etc. holds a strong impact on one’s family. These are negative foundations of families. These have serious hold on a man. These are illegal things for man and gives legal ground to devil to hold one into the captivity.
Read Revelation 12:10
 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:“Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah. 
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.
These kinds of things give access to the devil and he refuses to release a person from his trap. From time to time, the enemy rides on these negative foundations to attack, oppress and make claims on families.
Several homes today are in cages and their destinies are held bound. Often times this evil captivity of peoples’ destinies are results of rivalries, competitions or inheritance.
Read Genesis 37:8
His brothers said to him, “Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?” And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.
Joseph and his brothers is a good example for understanding how family members can be jealous of their own brothers and sisters and hinder the destiny.
Today those who do not know Christ use different satanic ways to oppress or hold in captivity the family members. While others use evil forces to outdo their colleagues or classmates or neighbours etc.
I still remember once we went to pray for a person in the hospital. There was a young girl of 14 years next to his bed. They told us she became blind all of a sudden. We prayed for her and asked her when and how it happened. She told us that she had a party at her friend’s house since then she developed certain blur in her eyes and when she woke up was unable to see. We prayed for her and broke the spirit of jealousy and competition. After two days when we went to see that person, they told us she began to see the very next day and was discharged from the hospital.
Say - Wherever my destiny has been buried I command it to come to freedom right now in Jesus Name
The evil foundation is ungodly and people are blinded.
Read 2 Corinthians 4:4
 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
Ungodly cultures, traditions, values, mindset, marital beliefs and ways of life of a tribe or family can prevent a person to reach to his God given destiny.
Think! and notice all these festival has involvement of some rituals!
Think! Is it as per the word of God!
Think! Why does it require all the family members to be present and participate in rituals!
It happens every year and every year the covenants with the other gods are renewed!
Simple, the spirit involved behind those worshiping demands and by that they get stronger in the hold from one generation to another.
 Read Psalms 78:58-64
They angered him with their high places; they aroused his jealousy with their idols. 
When God heard them, he was furious; he rejected Israel completely. He abandoned the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent he had set up among humans. He sent the ark of his might into captivity, his splendor into the hands of the enemy. He gave his people over to the sword; he was furious with his inheritance.  Fire consumed their young men, and their young women had no wedding songs; their priests were put to the sword, and their widows could not weep.
It is very obvious due to their practices they were brought into captivity, some died prematurely and some had great difficulty in their lives and some had difficulty in marriage or experienced delays or no peace in the family.
Idolatry of our forefathers always leaves behind curses, stagnancy, failure in marriages, profitless hand work pre-mature deaths etc.
Say- father’s house, release me now!
Even sexual immorality is deadly and it is a sin against one’s body, which makes its consequences transferable from one generation to another.
You need to ask God to destroy the sexual immorality in you and in your family in Jesus name.
Read Zechariah 3:1-5, 
Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. The LORD said to Satan, “The LORD rebuke you, Satan! The LORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?” Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then he said to Joshua, “See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put fine garments on you.” Then I said, “Put a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him, while the angel of the LORD stood by.
A careful study of this reveals devil was standing near Joshua to stop him to be before God for he was not clean as a result of his sinful background. Joshua was a leader. It was important for him to be right before God, so that he could lead and help his people.
Are you a leader of a church or family or office?
It is important for you to stand right with God.
Do you understand?
Sometime you find people accuse you or say bad about you on the basis of your past and you feel hurt and you become discouraged.
Say- My past will not haunt me I have the righteous garment of blood of Jesus
What does it mean to you when you dream and see yourself in front of “altars, shrines, village square (chauraha), ancient family homes or having sex in the dream?
These are the results of sins not dealt yet and those covenants made by you or your fathers pull you back because your name is still written there.
Another thing you notice when each time you see such type of dreams your prayer life goes down. That is why you are up today, and tomorrow you are down spiritually, financially and health wise as well. Right!
What should we do now?
Go before God in repentance and aggressively deal with your foundations in warfare prayers. The door of breakthrough will open to you.
I pray that every spirit of rejection shall die in your life in Jesus name and you and your household shall be remembered before God in Jesus name.
If you do not deal with personal sins and the iniquities of your father’s house, it becomes your filthy garment, then how will you reach to your God given destiny
Take a look at your life when people are blindly following the spirit of festival and falling into the trap of devil
Let’s Pray
Father, I thank you for opening my eyes to these truths. I repent for every hidden generational sin of idolatry, sexual immorality and bloodshed in Jesus Name
Oh Lord, let the voice of the blood of Jesus silence every voice against me and my family in Jesus Name
Oh Lord for every filthy garments upon me, have mercy and remove them from me in Jesus Name
Father, give me appetite for holiness in Jesus Name
Oh Lord as your servant, deliver my fellowship or church from being empty in Jesus Name
The terrible evil foundation of my family will not terminate my life and destiny in Jesus Name
Out of your mercies Lord clothe me with new garment in Jesus Name
I receive courage to stand sanctified and pray in Jesus Name
I receive grace to meet the needs of people in Jesus Name
My generation shall not miss their blessings or be delayed because of their past in Jesus Name
