Pastor Peter follows up last week's message from Anton Smith on cancelling demonic spiritual transactions. He takes his text from Luke 6:47-48 (NLT) "when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it…It is like a person building a house who DIGS DEEP and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built." It's not easy to dig deeply into our family history - we might not like what we find. But it is important for us to get to our foundations, so we know how to pray, repent and renounce the sins of our forefathers that could be impacting us today. We understand that spiritual blessings flow down from prior generations, but we seem to have a harder time believing the sins of our forefathers could be negatively impacting us today.
Take this test: Do I act more like an orphan or child of God?
Go down each line on this handout https://bit.ly/2JYl46X and be honest about where you stand. Get your spouse of close friend to weigh in as well. Where you are acting more like an orphan than a son or daughter, you may still be identifying with sinful aspects of your family history. Make it a priority to find your complete identity as a son or daughter of the living God and evict every counterfeit belief system that’s trying to attach you to an orphan spirit. You are God’s favorite! (Ha! So am I!)
