The world may say, “Teenage time for pleasure, middle age for job/business, old age for religion.” However, the Bible says, “Teenage, middle age, and old age – everything for God the Creator.” Teenage time is a tumultuous time, and that is the time when anyone is most tempted to forget God and His ways.
Many professing Christian leaders and preachers insist that the core of God’s law – the Ten Commandments – has been done away with. They call it the “law of Moses” and claim that it was abolished by Jesus Christ when He offered Himself as the sacrifice on the cross. They assume that the Ten Commandments started with Moses and that they didn’t exist before they were officially given in Exod. 20.
Many individuals and families are under the effect of some generational curses. The amazing thing is that this can happen not just to unbelievers, but also to believers in Christ Jesus. Many believers in Jesus assume that they may not be under any generational curse once they come to Christ. However, it is not so, as generational curses can affect even believers. This article focusses only on the aspect of generational curses and how to be delivered from them.
Jesus taught that fruit is a necessity in the believer’s life:
“I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples” (John. 15:1-8).
The attack on the family unit has never been greater. The prevalent influences of secular philosophy, psychology and sociology have driven the traditional family unit to the edge of extinction. Like a spiritual tsunami, the influences of moral relativism are rapidly eroding the confidence and faith of many Christians in Biblical foundational truths concerning marriage, family, parenting, etc.
