Generational Curses through lineage - Dr Francis Myles
Interview by Sid Roth with Francis Myles on generational curse through lineage.
Some examples: Certain sin impacts 10 generations (Deut. 23:2). Those who rebel against God because of unbelief, worship idols – this impacts 4 generations (Ex. 20:5; Num. 14:12). Sin in general impacts other generations (Ezek. 18:1-3) but the punishment of sin is only towards the individual (Deut. 24:16, Ezek. 18:20). A father who is put into jail for his sin impacts the family left behind. "Our fathers sinned and are no more, but we bear their iniquities" (Lam. 5:7).
Man was made in God’s image (appearance), according to His likeness (thinking – Good - desires and wants) (Gen. 1:26). But man changed it (corrupted it), no longer according to God’s image & likeness but after Adam’s – to rebel against God (Gen. 5:3). It’s in the genes. We need to forsake our spiritual lineage and adopt Christ’s lineage. “He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who will declare His generation (Isa 53:8)” His Lineage? Yes we must declare His Lineage, not our own – denounce our allegiance to our ancestry like Paul did (Phil. 3:4-7) like Zacharias did for his son John the Baptist (Luke 1:59-63).
Yeshua broke the curse by being cursed for us (Gal. 3:13). It is a covenant (legal contract) of exchange, we are made into the image of Christ (Rom. 8:29). The blessings of God are on 1000 generations of those who love God and keep His commandments (Deut. 7:9). Yeshua enables us to keep His commandments for He is with us (Mat. 1:23) and Holy Spirit is in us (Eph. 1:13).
