Simply believing in God is great but there is more. For many of us have issues that seem to supersede our salvation. There are some issues that we deal with that seem to persist and the source of these issues are unbeknownst to us, meaning the precede our own existence. We know God operates in a judicial framework, atonement, salvation. We also know that in the book of Zechariah that the enemy accuses the high priest Joshau before God in a courtroom setting. This is what happens in relation to all believers and unbelievers alike. This is the same judicial construct that secures the authority for
Zacharia 3:3-7 KJV
3Then he showed me the high priest Joshua standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan* standing at his right hand to accuse him. 2And the Lord said to Satan,* â€˜The Lord rebuke you, O Satan!* The Lord who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is not this man a brand plucked from the fire?â€™ 3Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. 4The angel said to those who were standing before him, â€˜Take off his filthy clothes.â€™ And to him he said, â€˜See, I have taken your guilt away from you, and I will clothe you in festal apparel.â€™ 5And I said, â€˜Let them put a clean turban on his head.â€™ So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him in the apparel; and the angel of the Lord was standing by.6 Then the angel of the Lord assured Joshua, saying 7â€˜Thus says the Lord of hosts: If you will walk in my ways and keep my requirements, then you shall rule my house and have charge of my courts, and I will give you the right of access among those who are standing here.
The Bible tells us that God is a righteous Judge and He will adjudicate cases and curses that are presently enforced, curses on our bloodline and all other curses, that are with a cause because the bible states that a curse without a cause can not land (Prov 26: 2) There is a difference between forgiveness and cleansing. Being forgiven means we have been pardoned of our sins because the wages were paid by Jesus dying on the cross for the wages of sin is death which requires blood for atonement (pure sacrifice) (Romans 6:23). Being cleansed means we must be cleansed from the generational consequences of these injurious acts: Our forefathers have left from serving The True and Living God to serving the god of this world for money, fame and fortune giving the enemy full access to their bloodline to exact whatever means he so desires upon them attacking them with sickness, disease, and poverty, stealing their God-given blood right and,with legal right to do so because of the covenants that were made long before some of us were thinking about. Many times, unbeknown to us and only recognized through prayerful revelation through the Holy Spirit.
The character of God as a judge is given in the following scriptures.
These scriptures I believe establishes God as sovereign over a judicial heavenly court, known as righteous judge of the universe.
- “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of thy throne” (Psalms 89:14)
- Jesus claims, “My judgment is just because I seek not my own will, but the will of him who sent me” (John 5:30).
- Jesus clearly regards his Father’s will as upholding justice.God is “One who impartially judges” (1Peter 1:17).
Jesus was tried and sentenced to death for the sins of the world past present and future when Jesus said on the cross it is finished He took the judgment for sin. (Romans 3:23). Our spirit was saved from that point on for those of us who have accepted His salvation. But salvation is an ongoing process, we have issues in our souls that must be addressed, some of it based on bloodline sin, iniquity, and transgressions. That, (The act of Jesus dying on the cross) secured our spirit, However, the soul, which houses our will, intellect and our emotions must be sanctified and brought back into alignment and agreement with The Father (I.e this is what makes us free will agents- God wanted us to choose Him over this world just like Jesus, when he was taken to the top of the mountain and was tempted by Satan himself offering Jesus the kingdoms of this world).
John 19:28-30 (NKJV)
28 After this, Jesus, [a]knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, â€œI thirst!â€ 29 Now a vessel full of sour wine( I.e [represents]Wine of the Old Levitical Priesthood and covenant) was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop( herb used for healing and cleansing the body), and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, â€œIt is finished!â€ And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
That simply means our Spirit has been redeemed but if you look carefully look at our current situation we are still being saved. The Apostle Paul said in Philippians 2:12 (KJV)
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
Jesus had laid the foundation for salvation and a road to redemption and reconciliation back to the Father through his works on the cross but that was only the beginning for the work to be done before the Kingdom of God to be manifested in this Earth.
Even David wrote in Psalm 51(KJV)
51 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. 2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me. 4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest and be clear when thou judgest. 5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
This is a Psalm that was written by the king David after the Prophet Nathan had brought to Davidâ€™s attention his sin. He did so using a parable nevertheless, David recognized his sin and penned the 51st Psalm. I believe there is much information in that Psalm concerning cleansing his bloodline and acknowledging that the sins of his forefathers were on him, in him or even through him. David inadvertently replicated some of the very same sins that his forefathers had committed. Why is this important?, I am glad you asked!
- David first asks God for mercy according to Godâ€™s loving-kindness and His tender mercies.
- He then proceeds to ask that his transgressions be blotted out. What are transgressions?
Transgressions– Adam’s transgression of God’s law: infringement, breach, contravention, violation, defiance, infraction, disobedience, breaking, flouting, nonobservance, overstepping, exceeding. ANTONYMS obedience
- He then proceeds to ask God to wash him of his iniquity, why the word wash? In order to come to a full understanding, we must also define the word iniquity.
Iniquity– is moral injustice, wickedness or sin. In biblical terms, it is a violation of God’s moral law, which can be described as perversity,
So David is asking God to cleanse him or wash him, as David knowing his family history recognized he was transgressing in the same way as his forefathers did.
David asked to cleansed of his sin. Letâ€™s define sin:
Sin- is the thought portion of all of these activities. Remember Jesus in the new testament said this in Matthew 5:28 (KJV):
But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
- In verse 5 of the 51st Palm David now discusses his origins and the conditions by which he was conceived.
I personally believe that David may have been conceived out of wedlock and I believe we can see this as a possibility when we observe the narrative of Davidâ€™s life. David said he was shapen in Iniquity meaning that the iniquity of his forefathers was the source of these proclivities and propensities to commit the very same sins of his ancestors. The very sin that produced the writing of the 51st Psalm a Psalm of repentance and cleansing, The sin transgression and iniquity that was in David produced a son, The great King Solomon with the same issues as David and Davidâ€™s forefathers. So we see presently a generational curse caused by iniquity.
There are 3 Tenses of Salvation. Salvation past, Salvation present, and Salvation future. When we receive Jesus in our hearts we get saved, every blessing, everything at the cross is our right. Our spirit got saved, sealed for all eternity. But our soul is a proceeding redemptive work where we need to be cleansed, meaning our bloodline needs to be cleansed. The soul is where we have our personality, our endeavors, and emotions.
This area of the human is easily corrupted not only by trauma and our personal sin but whatever we allow to enter it, through our gates ( mouth, eyes, ears, nose, and touch).
In our soul exists no good thing. The following scriptures talk about the condition of the heart/soul that is constantly in the need to be saved.
Romans 7: 18-20 (KJV)
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. 19 For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. 20 Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.
Our heart is used synonymous with our soul and this lets us know the condition of our hearts.
Mathew 12:34 (KJV)
34 You brood of vipers! How can you speak good things, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Proverbs 4:23 (KJV)
23 Keep your heart with all diligence, for from it flows the issues of life.
Proverbs 10:11 (KJV)
11 The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.
Luke 6:45 (KJV)
45 The good person out of the good treasure of the heart produces good, and the evil person out of evil treasure produces evil; for it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks.
We must each seek out our own soul salvation as Peter writes in his first epistle. The word souls and spirit are not interchangeable.
Therefore as our Spirit is saved our soul still needs to be saved and is being saved. This starts and can only happen with a renewing of the mind.
Romans 12:12 KJV
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Philippians 2:5 KJV
5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
â€œThis information God has given others and I is revelatory, it is not just simply breaking curses and covenants. God is a covenantal God, that is how we who are in Christ have received salvation. All humans are either born into a family covenant, marry, or are adopted into a family covenant. Covenants that involve iniquity persist through the third and fourth generations. (Exodus 34:6-7, Deuteronomy 5:8-10) There are other eternal covenants. Some covenants are eternal. Case in point, Seth the son of Adam, Seth being the firstborn after the fall determines the generation consequence that all subsequent humanity would be born under. We are all subsequently created in Sethâ€™s Image and likeness when it comes to the iniquity the covering Glory of God is missing because of the sin of his parents, The propensity, and proclivity that is in us is the direct result of Adamic sin.
Genesis chapter 5 verse 1 says that God created man in His image and likeness. meaning God created male and female and blessed them and called them Adam. In verse three the text tells us that Adam had another son named Seth who was born in the image and likeness of his father Adam.
Gen 4:25 (NKJV)
There was only one son of Adam which was Abel who was murdered by his half brother Caine, every subsequent human being born no longer has the covering glory of God, that covering glory was the reason Adam and Eve did not know they were naked, every human being is now born in the image and likeness of our forefather Adam, therefore in the image and likeness Seth who is the offspring of Adam. (The fallen Adam)
Genesis 5 King James Version (KJV)
5 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth: 4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:
This is explicitly why your bloodline has to be washed as we carry the residual consequence of generational sin, simply being forgiven is not enough and we see the example in Psalm 51. We must remember and I have even preached it and taught it incorrectly. Yes, Adam and Eve were created in the image and likeness of God, But after the fall every subsequent individual was created in the image and likeness of their parents. Genesis 5:1-3 KJV
5 This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; 2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.3 And Adam lived a hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, and after his image; and called his name Seth:
In conclusion, every subsequent human is born in the image and likeness of their forefathers lacking Godâ€™s covering glory. This indicates the generational curses we see in our bloodline which must be cleansed.
Bloodline Cleansing Prayer
â€œStart by asking the Holy Spirit to lead you in prayer and ask the Lord Jesus to walk with you into the courtroom of heaven, (Heb.12:18, 22-24). Ask the Holy Spirit to sharpen your five senses of the spirit so you can see, hear, sense and feel what is going on in the courtroom. Sometimes you may not see pictures of anything, you may just sense or hear what is going on in the courtroom because we are spiritual beings living in a body. The courtroom prayer is a prayer of faith, you must have faith and trust God that God He is true to His word and He will vindicate you because we have Jesus on our side and His blood is speaking for us in the courtroom of heaven. He is our Advocate, trust Him.
Heavenly Father, the Judge of heaven and earth, I call you my Abba, Father. You created me and made me in your image. You formed my inward parts and covered me in my motherâ€™s womb. You know every detail of my life and the numbers of the hairs on my head. You called me the apple of your eye. I call you Holy, Righteous, Just, and the Ancient of days. I enter into your presence through the blood of the Lamb and through my Savior Jesus Christ. I humble myself in your presence as I bring my petition boldly before your throne of grace that I may obtain mercy and find grace to help in my time of need.
I have not come to the mountain that may be touched and that burned with fire, and to blackness, darkness, and tempest, but I have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God. I have come into the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels and to the general assembly and the church of the firstborn who are registered in heaven. I have come to you my God, the Judge of heaven and earth, to the spirits of just men made perfect, I have come to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel. (Heb.12:18,22-28 personalized)
Heavenly Father, you are the righteous Judge of heaven and earth, I would like to convene the mobile court of heaven. I stand on the finished work of the cross of Jesus under the covering of His blood and your love for me. Heavenly Father, I repent and ask for your forgiveness in the name of Jesus for my sins of breaking your first and second commandments, and I also repent and ask for forgiveness for any sins, transgressions, and iniquities that may have been passed down to me through my bloodline, especially the sins of carving an image or an idol out of the things you created and worshipping this image.
Father, I ask for your forgiveness for my ancestors and for anyone in my generational bloodline linked to me that has committed this sin and chosen to serve other gods or worship them. I pray that you will forgive us and cleanse me/my children/grandchildren etc. of my/our iniquities and sins because I/we know that I/we have broken the first and the second commandment which is an act of disobedience to you.
I ask that the blood of the Lamb of God will cleanse and purify me/children, grandchildren, etc from this sin and purify me/us from every negative impact that this sin and iniquity may have brought into my life/our lives in Jesus name. You said that if we confess our sins, You are faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all our unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).
Heavenly Father, by the authority given to me in the name of Jesus Christ, I now break myself/children/grandchildren, etc. free from every vow and every blood covenant that was made on my/our behalf and sever myself/children/grandchildren, etc. from these covenants and vows. I declare that I/we will not be a partaker and will not participate in such covenants and vows as from this day. I destroy every effect of these covenants in my life/our lives in Jesusâ€™s name.
Just as Gideon obeyed you in Judges 6, I also take a stand against all activities that do not align with who You are in every area of my life/our lives. I tear down every altar of Baal and any demonic altars that may be speaking for me or my children, grandchildren, etc. in the spirit realm and I cut down every image that may be representing me/us/children/grandchildren, etc. in the spirit realm in the name of Jesus.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I block and close the portal of that blood covenant and vow from flowing into our lives, and I declare this day, that the Blood of the Lamb of God will be the only blood covering me/us and flowing into my/our, spirit, soul and body. I place the blood of the Lamb of God over every door, and lintel of my life/our lives, and I pray that the blood of Jesus will shield and protect us everywhere we go and in all that we do in Jesusâ€™s name. Heavenly
Father, I offer my life/children/grandchildren, etc. to You, as a living sacrifice and I/we declare that I/we will only worship and honor You, the â€œI AM THAT I AM.â€ I now confess and receive your blessings, promised in Deuteronomy 28:1-14 over my life/children/grandchildren/lineage in Jesusâ€™s name. Whoever the Son sets free is free indeed. I seal my prayers with the blood of Jesus. Amen.â€
1st John 1:9
9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
