I have prayed about this and I keep hearing the same thing. “Do it now.” I was not going to start this series until January, but it was impressed upon me to begin now.

Let me try to express my own mindset. It is not any spiritual mystery by any means, just very basic thinking.

I make no excuses for myself or my life. I have been far from perfect and am still very far from perfect. I take personal responsibility for absolutely everything in my life. I boil things down to their most elemental concept. God is right in every instance. If God is right, by process of elimination that means I am wrong. There is nothing evil or demeaning about this…it is simply a statement of fact. I take no offence with these declarations. I am realigning my life according to the original plan of God, instead of the plan I came to accept as His plan.

God always was. He created everything that was, is and will be. He spent eternity past alone and decided He wanted friends. So He created angels. But it is not good for God to be alone (Genesis 2:18). He decided to “build” a wife… a bride. So He created man.

I was created to be the bride of The Messiah. God loved me before I was even born (Jeremiah 1:5). He loved me even while I hated Him. He thinks of me all the time even when I don’t think of Him. He is faithful even when I am not because He is in covenant with me. He gave the life of His only begotten Son to pay the price of my sin and the sin of my generations so that I would/could be restored to a relationship with Him.

In the beginning there was the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. They created Lucifer and the angels. Lucifer, while he lived in ultimate luxury and abundance, while sitting around the fire musing over his life, came upon something that had not until then existed. He invented the lie. (John 8:44 You belong to your father, Satan, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. From the start he was a murderer, and he has never stood by the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he is speaking in character; because he is a liar — indeed, the inventor of the lie!)

Adam and Eve knew only abundance and peace in the Garden. They walked with The Messiah every morning in the cool of the day. As a matter of fact, because they were created in His image, the animals could not tell the difference…is that Adam or The Messiah over there? They fell prey to one of Lucifer’s lies. From that single moment, the truth of God on the earth was corrupted with lies. They became separated from their Creator.

  • The scribes and the Pharisees were the most scripturally, biblically learned men of their day. Yet they crucified their Messiah. They chose to keep “their truth”. Had they believed and hailed Him, He still would have given His life for the world. His sacrifice did not depend on their unbelief.
  • The children of Israel saw more miracles than any people group in the world, and still they did not enter the Promised Land because of unbelief.
  • The pre-flood peoples lived 1000 years seeing the Garden of Eden on the horizon and still they drowned in unbelief.
  • Solomon had a special anointing of wisdom given personally by God. Yet he was the beginning of the division and separation of Israel because of his 1000 wives and concubines that brought false gods (more lies) into his heart and kingdom

Being filled to the brim with scripture, testimony and miracles is no guarantee of anything. It is time to get real. Regardless of how much I know or how much I attend church, I am not in real relationship with Him. What I do means nothing. What I have means nothing.  It is all the letter of the law. The only thing that means anything is being in relationship with Him. I will therefore let go of everything and concentrate on only one thing – building a relationship with my Creator and Lover so that sin cannot separate Him and I.

Deeper truth means nothing to me if I do not have basic fundamental truth and freedom.

I will NOT pray asking for things. I will speak to the Lord and tell Him exactly how I feel. There is no right or wrong feeling. Because I feel them, for that moment they are right. I will be totally honest and open. (More on this at a later date)

  • Father God, I am depressed because my life sucks. Why does my life suck?
  • Father God, I have no friends. Why don’t people like me?
  • Father God, I am broke. Why am I poor?
  • Father God, I can’t stop smoking. Why am I so addicted?

God sees every single cell of my body. He hears every thought. He sees everything I do. He knows every aspect and secret of my life – He searches my heart. How can I lie? How can I hide? Why would I try?

When I speak each word is heard by a witnessing crowd of spirits, of angels and by God, plus any person that may be near. When I go to the bathroom I never go alone – the bathroom is full of spirits, angels, and God sees as well. When I have sex I do it in front of an audience of spirits and angels, and of course, God sees. There is nothing in my life that is not documented and recorded in books. Every tear I shed is gathered by angels. I AM NOT ALONE. I DO NOTHING ALONE. IT IS TIME TO BE BRUTALLY HONEST WITH GOD AND OURSELF. IT IS TIME TO STOP BEING ASHAMED, TO STOP HIDING.

On top of that, every sin that I DO NOT CONFESS AND PUT UNDER THE BLOOD OF Y’SHUA – (HIDDEN SINS) – will be shown on Judgment Day. That tells me that I am followed, whether asleep and awake, by several cameramen. EVERYTHING IS RECORDED. I CANNOT HIDE. SO I HAD BETTER CONFESS IT AND PUT IT UNDER THE BLOOD SO IT IS FORGIVEN AND FORGOTTEN.

I can honestly say that I do not remember my life unless I really concentrate on it. It no longer has any hold on me. There is no longer any pain, anger, hatred, fear, or ping. But this did not happen until I learned and understood Matthew 5:25, 26; “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.”

I have messed up my life with many bad decisions and sins. Regardless of my age, from birth I am on my way to court, that is Judgment Day. I have time to be honest and settle matters. I put the matter (whatever it is) under the blood of Y’shua. It is then covered. But that darned adversary keeps bringing it up to my face over and over again. I learned to say, “Yep! I did that. Yep! I am guilty. Yep! It was my fault. Yep! I take responsibility. But who cares? It is under the blood of Y’shua.  I am forgiven. So you are done here.

There is NO SECRET SIN worth hanging onto because of shame or guilt…which, by the way, are also spirits. I am not perfect. My family was not perfect – they too were under the influence of spiritual demons and lies. Only God is perfect and I want to be in relationship with Him regardless of the cost.

I am the sum total of my generational sins. The Bible tells us that the sins of the father are laid upon the children to the 3rd and 4th generation. (Numbers 14:18) Well here is the rub…loophole. Adam lied. His sin was laid upon Cain who killed his brother. Cain, in effect, became the father,

or 1st generation, and so his sins started the cycle all over again. It was the 6th generation from Adam where Lamech killed 2 men. In fact, the sin of Adam has carried on through 10 generations before the entire world was destroyed by the flood. In fact, the sin of Ham carried on through several generations before the entire world was cursed with different languages. Therefore I am still paying the price of the generational sins of my fathers and the generational sins of my entire family line, all the way back to Adam. Those sins are written in my DNA. It’s time to stand up for your children by saying the buck stops here. We can be that generation.

Like Joshua, I need to stand up and repent for the sins of my family line, taking responsibility for the sin in my family line, and declare my line is now for God…not Satan. “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15)

My generational line goes all the way back to Adam and Eve – because God is right and He says everyone comes from Adam and Eve. If this is true, then my line from Adam and Eve stood for Satan not God. I can absolutely, 100%, without a shadow of a doubt, guarantee you that you have, as do I, written in our DNA the following sins:

  • Murder
  • Cannibalism
  • Suicide
  • Baal worship
  • Human sacrifice
  • Child sacrifice
  • Theft
  • Incest
  • Child molestation
  • Sexual perversion
  • Rape
  • Assault
  • Adultery
  • Divorce
  • And more….

But I am European of German descent, you say. The Germans, more precisely the Teutonics, practiced cannibalism right up until the 6th century. Maybe you are Japanese. Not only did the Japanese practice murder and ritual suicide on a regular basis through the samurai code, but during WW2, it was common practice for the soldiers stationed on the islands and in China to regularly eat the people/prisoners. Let’s try Britain. The British and Europeans tortured and murdered millions of people at the hands of the Catholics during the Inquisitions. Then the Protestants broke away, so they retaliated by killing hundreds of thousands of Catholics. The Celtics practiced human sacrifice until recent centuries. The Chinese practiced cannibalism up until this century. Africa still practices human sacrifice and human mutilation. Murder and mayhem still continues in the earth today in secret and in the open.

I can absolutely guarantee you there is blood on your hands, and mine, somewhere along the way.

But I don’t know my family history, you say. Satan has gone out of his way to ensure we lose our generational identity so we cannot identify the sin for which we are responsible in our family line. If I cannot do it specifically, then I will do it generically using national traits and characteristics to guide me. If it didn’t happen, it didn’t happen. But when in doubt, cast it out. No harm, no foul.

The reason we stand up and declare that we are taking the responsibility for the sin in our family line is simple. By that declaration I am no longer a victim of my genetic code. By that declaration I take back my life, placing it in God’s hands, able to do with it, from that moment, what He wants. It simply means that from that precise moment I choose my future instead of being a victim with an uncontrollable future.

Alright, the declarations.

 

The first step is to lay some ground rules.

  1. This is NOT an exercise on what is wrong with anyone else. This is solely an exercise on what is wrong with me – or in this case, you.
  2. I am NOT putting down any ministry or person in particular, just everyone in general. I include myself in the same category.
  3. Matthew 5:36 Since I cannot change one hair on my head, how can I be so arrogant to think I can change anyone else one iota?
  4. Do not use this information as a weapon against anyone else.
  5. These declarations are not proclaimed to dump guilt on myself…they are declared to set the “real me” free. To move from victim to the “created me”.

There are some things you need to do to get free…some mindset changes. These are things I have said many times in my life, so I am not telling you something I have not done myself. These are the steps I went through, and I merely suggest you follow them. However, if there is anything you object to, search the reason why you object, and proceed as you choose. These were my confessions.

  1. Declaration: God is right in all things.
    1. God did NOT create me to be imperfect.
      1. He created me with perfection in mind because He does not want an imperfect bride.
      2. He sent His Son to die for my learned imperfection and sin to restore me to perfection
  • Perfection is purity. Purity is holiness. Holiness is God’s nature.
  1. God is in control of everything
    1. Even though I decide to make bad decisions and sin, God CAN and WILL still work it out for my good if I give it to Him
    2. Regardless of where I am or why I am there, God will ALWAYS make an way of escape for me if I turn to Him and ask His help
    3. God will ALWAYS be there for me IF I repent and seek Him – I will always find Him if I look diligently for Him
  2. Lucifer was the inventor of lies. He told his lies in heaven and 1/3 of the angels fell under their persuasion.
    1. Lucifer brought his lies to earth and all mankind fell under their persuasion.
    2. My ancestors believed a lie. I believed a lie. I need to find the truth by getting rid of the lies
  • The basis of the lies is that I will have power, fame and wealth.
    1. Lust of the flesh
    2. Lust of the eyes
    3. Pride of life
  1. In order to get rid of the lie, I must confess and get rid of how the lie has worked in my life. Undoubtedly, there is a mixture of truth and lies. In order to purge the lies, it is necessary to lay it all down and let Holy Spirit fill you with only truth. A blank slate is more precise than “editing” by trial and error….
  1. Declaration: Everything I have ever learned is wrong. I will replace it with God’s truth.
    1. I have declared this 4 times in my life and given myself over to God as completely as I understood at the time. Each time, I gave myself over to Him to a much more complete degree. Each time was deeper and more revealing.
    2. Regardless of who you listened to in your life, I can guarantee you that it was not 100% accurate or true. The reason for this is because regardless of what we learn, we understand it through a filter. If our parents taught us things, they learned those things through their parents who learned it from their parents. And everything is tainted through a Satan- affected filter that is not 100% God. We understand things through a hazy mist of sort-of-truth. Preachers will speak things according to what they understand, what they learned at seminary, and they too are subject to those same filters. There is NO ONE immune to this. Paul said we see dimly.
      1. Example: God told Adam in Genesis 2:16, 17 (Eve had not been created yet) – “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.” However, Adam told Eve (Genesis 3:2) – “We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3 but God did say, ‘You must not eat fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’” She heard this rule through a filter. It was most likely a well-meaning filter, but it was a filter nonetheless. And it was one that opened the door allowing hell to enter earth ever since. Well-meaning but devastating. The next filter she heard was (Genesis 3:3) – “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. 5 “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
    3. EVERYTHING WE HAVE LEARNED IS WRONG. There is absolutely no way around this. Even when God speaks to us, shows us a vision or shows us a scripture, WE UNDERSTAND IT THROUGH THE FILTERS WE HAVE IN PLACE. WE TRANSLATE THROUGH OUR OWN UNDERSTANDING
  2. Declaration: If I was perfect I would already be translated with a new body.
    1. Obviously I do not have a new body. I have not been translated. That is guaranteed to mean that I am not perfect. In other words, I have NOT arrived. We have 3 examples of people who did.
      1. Enoch – he was perfect and could no longer stay in the world as he was and so he walked with God and was not (Jude 14; Genesis 5:24)
      2. 2 Kings 2:11 As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them, and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind.
  • Y’shua was transfigured in Matthew 17.
  1. If I am not translated with a new body, there is still stuff in me. If there is still stuff in me, then I must get it out.
  1. Declaration: If I am not hearing God the problem rests with me, not Him.
    1. God speaks with a quiet, subdued voice – (1 Kings 19:9-18) We need to be still and know that God is God. (Psalms 46:1-11) Only when we quiet all the voices inside and out can we actually hear the voice of God
    2. God speaks to us through the Bible
    3. God speaks to us through dreams (Joel 2:28)
    4. God speaks to us through the Holy Spirit (Hebrews 10:15)
    5. 2 Chronicles 7:14, 15 – “then, if my people, who bear my name, will humble themselves, pray, seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin and heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears will pay attention to the prayer made in this place.” If we do not hear from God, we have not humbled ourselves and gotten rid of our evil ways. I can only humble myself by realizing I am wrong, God is right. I can only realize I am wrong by taking responsibility for my own life
    6. It is possible that our conversations with God are one-sided? We do all the talking, not allowing Him to get a word in…or shutting up long enough to listen
  2. Declaration: It is my fault.
    1. Take responsibility for your life. Stop being a victim. By taking responsibility even if you could not have prevented a situation from happening, you take your life back and from that moment decide what to do with it – place it under the protection of the blood of Y’shua or continue wearing that thorn in your flesh. It is only by taking responsibility in every situation are we able to take back the power others have over us. Stop blaming everyone else for your problems. Stop blaming God for your decisions and lack of action.
      1. A long time ago, before I knew anything, I decided that I would bear responsibility in every situation; I would not pick up the other person’s responsibility. I am going to tell you something I tell very, very few people simply because it is the most compelling example I can use. Below are just some of the highlights of my life.
        1. In my life, I have been raped 3 times. I have been strangled twice. I have been shot at once. I have been beaten up twice. I have had my life threatened 4 times. Now, I could blame the people who were involved. I can even blame the spirits who instigated the situations. Or in each case, I can pick out where my fault lies, even if I could not have prevented the situation. I can take my responsibility for both my reaction and the spirits I let in because of the incident and I can leave the other person free to pick up their responsibility. This is not to excuse them on Judgment Day, this is so I can forgive them and clear myself of that dead weight.
          1. Rape 1 – bad, naïve decision to be in that place
          2. Rape 2 – I drank too much liquor and put myself into a vulnerable position
          3. Rape 3 – incest
          4. Strangle 1 – father strangled me
          5. Strangle 2 – father strangled me
          6. Shot at – by my foster child’s drug dealer “associate”
          7. Beaten up 1 – tricked into being isolated on a country farm with these people
          8. Beaten up 2 – helped a friend get rid of a bad man
          9. Life threatened 1 – helped a friend get rid of a bad man
          10. Life threatened 2 – got rid of a bad man myself
          11. Life threatened 3 – foster child stole drugs from a drug dealer and left the dealer passed out on my couch
          12. Life threatened 4 – turned in foster child to the police for fraud
            1. Regardless of the people involved, I was responsible for my own life one way or another. My series of decisions placed me in those positions. They were not God’s doing or His choice. It was a result of cause and effect. Because of this, I can take up my responsibility and therefore get rid of the spirits involved.
          13. By making excuses or giving reasons why things are the way things are or why things happened, we hand over the control of our lives to someone else. We need to take back our lives and the only way to do this is to take responsibility for absolutely everything that has happened to us since conception.
            1. I have generational anger (well, not any longer). That generational spirit came into me at the moment of conception. I was really busy concentrating on dividing my cells at the time and did not notice what came hitchhiking in on my DNA. How am I responsible? Regardless of whether I was busy or ignorant at the time does not matter. I chose to let them in. I have COMPLETE SOVEREIGN AUTHORITY OVER MY PERSON
              1. It is called free will regardless if I decide to use it or not
            2. By taking responsibility for my life, I can not only forgive others and myself, I can begin to heal. I can release the burden of my life from the responsibility of others. I have even gone so far as to pray blessing on my father who I know is in hell by his own decision so that the things that have happened in my life at his hands are not held against him. I have no idea what good that will or will not do him, but I have asked that this guilt be removed from him and leave it in God’s hands, not mine. It releases me from that particular burden of hate and anger.
          14. Declaration: I WILL forgive everyone including myself, God, people and Lucifer.
            1. This is not for them, it is for me. I want/need God’s forgiveness
            2. Their judgment is not my responsibility it is God’s.
            3. Unforgiveness in any form is a sin.
            4. John 14:30 “I won’t be talking with you much longer, because the ruler of this world is coming. He has no claim on me;” Y’shua was perfect. He had no unforgiveness in Him. Even on the cross, while hanging there naked and in agony, He said – “Forgive them for they know not what they do.”
            5. Unforgiveness is the foundational basis for most sin – it is the basis for bitterness, hatred, anger, suicide, spitefulness, murder, revenge etc.
            6. My forgiving does nothing for the other person on Judgment Day. That is God’s responsibility and decision, not mine. So my forgiving Lucifer and his minions for destroying my life does not make me love him (I do not want anything to do with him ever) and it does not change God’s decision regarding his punishment. Even the angels do NOT rail against Lucifer and his minions.
            7. Ephesians 4:31, 32 We need to forgive as we have been forgiven
            8. Matthew 6:12 We are forgiven as we forgive – I take this to mean that in the same manner and depth I forgive others, God forgives me.
          15. Declaration: I will seek God, His truth, His way, His heart, His life, His freedom.
          16. Declaration: I will be free regardless of the cost to me
            1. The cost to me is honesty
              1. There is sin in my life and the life of my family line
              2. NO sin is any different from any other sin. Sin is sin.
                1. A little white lie is the same as murder in God’s eyes
              3. Declaration: If I have offended anyone I will ask their forgiveness
                1. Even if it was not my heart to offend them
                2. Even though I know their taking offence is a spirit they chose to agree with
                3. It is to clear any blemish on my record because not to ask forgiveness means that I do not forgive them for being offended with me
              4. Declaration: God is perfect and I was created perfect.
                1. Take responsibility for my own issues
                  1. If I am not perfect then there is something in the way
                  2. I have been influenced by spirits
  • If I have been influenced by spirits, then although I did not create the influence (their responsibility), I have come into agreement with it (my responsibility)
  1. Confess the sin
  2. Get rid of the spirit
  3. Ask for forgiveness
  4. Accept the forgiveness
    1. It is now covered by the blood of Y’shua and forgotten
    2. So who cares if the adversary remembers… his opinion does not count
  • And if God forgives and forgets, why shouldn’t I?
  1. When I appear before the court on Judgment Day, that forgiven sin will not show up on record anywhere

So these are the steps to freedom.

  1. Be honest with God and yourself
  2. Take responsibility for your life regardless of the situation and incident and take your life back
  3. Repent of your mistakes whether they be feelings, thoughts, deeds, words and ask for forgiveness
  4. Forgive others involved in that sin and situation and ask God to bless them as He will
  5. Take responsibility and repent for your family line and put it under the blood of Y’shua
    1. Although this does nothing for past generations, it frees up future generations
  6. Get rid of the spirit and the lie – cast them into the pit
    1. Y’shua cast out legion into the pigs who then went into the pit (metaphor for over the cliff)
  7. Ask for healing by the Holy Spirit
  8. Ask the Holy Spirit to fill the now vacant spot that was filled by removed spirit
  9. AND MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIFE. DO NOT RETURN TO THE VOMIT OF YOUR SIN. IT IS FORGIVEN AND FORGOTTEN BY THE ONLY ONE WHO MATTERS – GOD
  10. Deal with the next issue that comes up, diligently seeking your freedom so your relationship with God can mend.

So you screwed up your life. You have made a lot of bad decisions in your life. Well, so have I. You have been in jail? So what? You committed adultery? So what? You stole something? So what? Sin is sin. No one sin is any greater or less than another. Anger, hatred, revenge…all the same. When you put it under the blood of The Messiah, God forgives and forgets the sin. What you have done does not matter one iota to me. I see you no differently. I see you as one step closer to being restored to a right relationship with God and I look forward to spending eternity with you.  We need to stop criticizing and slandering others for the very things we have done at some point ourselves (or even our generations)…and some of us even as recently as last week.

God help us all. Lord, help my lack of mercy and give me Your heart and compassion.
