Book Review - Challenges Associated With Family Tree and How....

Paying your ancestors bills – Blood Guilt

What it means is that every drop of righteous blood ever spilled from the time earth began until now, from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who was struck down between altar and sanctuary, is on your heads. Yes, it's on the bill of this generation and this generation will pay. Luke11:50-51 THE MESSAGE
The above scripture paints a vivid picture of what it means to inherit judgment from our ancestors. If this statement was made by less a person than Christ Himself, we may treat it lightly. The generation Jesus was addressing was to inherit blood guilt from more than two thousand years behind. And God was to make them pay for the innocent blood their ancestors shed.
In Africa we see this kind of thing in some families where their ancestors have been involved in ritual murder, human sacrifice, slave trade and other related evils. As we go through the family tree that this account represents, we begin to see people suffer for what they cannot explain.
What are the kind of things people under blood guilt suffer?
a. Missing lineage – Restless wanderer
b. Refugee situation
c. War and violence in their land
d. Poverty of a kind that force them to sell off their family asset
e. Rejection everywhere they try to associate with people
f. Failure at the point of breakthrough
g. Insanity
h. War within the family
This is to mention but a few. People under blood guilt are really in trouble. When people shed blood, it is an affront on the God of creation, and the blood so shed cries out to God’s court for vengeance. It is God that avenges blood and He only can forgive bloodshed.
The Lord said, "What have you done? Listen! Your brother's blood cries out to me from the ground. Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand. When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth." Gen 4:10-12 NIV
Take note of what this scripture says-
1. Blood does not die even after the person is dead. Abel was dead but his blood was still crying out to God for vengeance
2. No matter where the dead is covered and his blood buried, God can still hear the cry of blood
3. Blood demands vengeance at the highest court; God’s court
4. Bloodshed attracts curses
5. The curse for bloodshed will bring failure at every point of endeavor
6. God’s creation resists somebody under the curses of bloodshed and they don’t cooperate with him - When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you.
7. Those under judgement for bloodshed end up as fugitives or restless wanderers
8. God punishes the sin of bloodshed Himself
And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each man, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of his fellow man Gen 9:5 NIV
"'Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land, and atonement cannot be made for the land on which blood has been shed, except by the blood of the one who shed it. Num 35:33 NIV

The sad thing in the case we are discussing is that according to Jesus Christ, the people that had shed the blood has died and long forgotten but their children, were being called to pay for the sins of their ancestors. The result is that we begin to see most of what is mentioned above as the consequences of the sin of bloodshed in the life of those who never shed blood all their life.

Frequently Asked Questions in Relation to Family Liberation
1. How if I am the only believer in the family, how do I go about liberating the family?
The most you can do in that case is continue to pray that God will draw your people to see their need for deliverance. If you are the oldest member of the family or kindred, you can exercise a level of authority over the family. Your position authorizes you to represent them before God. So you can do something close to liberation while representing the family. It is the same condition when elders pour libation on behalf of the entire family. But it will be more wonderful that there is a gathering
2. Must all the members of the family gather for the liberation?
Not necessarily. Some who live very far away may not be able to come but we need their consent. The very important person is the head of the family. If it is a community liberation, each represented family should provide a representative. Yet, it is a great privilege if all members are able to gather. It is a sign of seriousness.
3. How about a situation where all the family members live in the city, can it be done in the city?
It is not even healthy when all family members live in the city and don’t visit their home town. In a case there is crisis in the village, something like war or communal crisis, it should be seen as an exception. But if the family have migrated to another place, then their present base should be seen as their home. It is right to mention at this point that it is stupid and ignorant for a family to desert their home town because of demons and witchcraft. That is more reason why you should go there. For as long as your root is under bondage, you are not free.
4. Some deliverance ministers ask people to go and bring sand from the village; how do you see that?
If that is what the Holy Spirit asked him to do, I don’t have quarrel about that. But I should think that land liberation is part of conquering of territories for Christ. When you liberate the land, you free the people living there to serve God. There may be altars in the home town to pull down and the land has to be addressed. There may also be one or two persons who may come to Christ if it is done in the village. I am sorry to say that my generation is a selfish one. People generally are concerned about their own wellbeing. So when you talk about what may profit others, they see it as strange and waste of time.
Nevertheless, if the reason you are packing sand is because you are unable to provide means of transport for the deliverance team and family members, I leave you with the Holy Spirit to guide.
5. As a married woman, should I be part of family liberation in my father’s house?
It is optional and you have to get your husband’s permission. When we build family tree in the School for Deliverance and Spiritual Warfare, women have often raised this question. There may be issues in your husband’s house which have to be resolved by joining in prayers there in your father’s house.
6. Apostle Paul condemned the discussion of genealogy; why worry about them?
So that you may command certain men not to teach false doctrines any longer nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. These promote controversies rather than God's work — which is by faith. The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith 1 Tim 1:3-5 NIV
I don’t believe that the Apostle Paul was actually focused on the family tree here. I rather see it that he was discussing people who have gone overboard in proving how rightly they are connected to Jewish roots. Apostle Paul in several places mentioned his genealogical lineage.
7. How do you see going to pray at the grave of our ancestors?
Well, it depends on what you are looking for there. Your ancestors are no longer there, only dry bones. Let me warn that mystics parading as servants of God are bringing several occult practices in to the church system. Anybody asking you to go the grave or ask ancestors for any kind of help is Satanist
8. What relationship is there between immersion baptism and land liberation? I ask because you teach that the people seeking deliverance and liberation should be placed on solid spiritual grounds
You will have to read my book on baptism, captioned, “Doctrine on Baptisms”. I like to state here that it is useless trying to carry out deliverance on someone who refuses to be a Christian. The word Christian simply means someone following after Christ and we know that Christ submitted Himself to be baptized as a full grown mam. He said that those who believe in Him should be baptized. More than that, baptism is deliverance from our Adamic roots. Read the rest from the book
9. We have had land liberation but saw no difference; should we have another?
If you read this book properly, you can see that land or family liberation is a covenant breaking process. If it was done properly, there would be no need to do it again. In fact, there can be no place to repeat it. But if you observe it was not done properly you may go ahead and repeat it. Against that, you can have family or community prayer as often as you want. The date chosen for memorial festival for the family can still serve to remind God of your new covenant with him

Twelve Things You Must Know about Demons (Evil spirits)

Twelve Things You Must Know about Demons (Evil spirits)

1. Demons will not leave you alone just because you live a holy life
2. Demons are on a definite assignment to make your life miserable, so there is really no good demon
3. The bible never asked us to pray about demons but to cast them out
4. Most demons will not leave you after a short prayer; you must be persistent and insistent for you to be delivered from demons
5. You don’t need great power or great anointing to cast them out. Your victory over demons is simply through the power and authority in the name of Jesus Christ. They would rather deceive you to believe in your fasting, prayer, holy life, holy water, holy soap, your pastor’s handkerchief and all what not.
6. When you are succeeding with destroying demon control, they will almost always play a game on your mind by telling you that you are wasting your time.
7. Fasting in its right place will help your spiritual muscle as you contend with evil spirits
8. The worst decision you can make with regards to satan and his agents is to say, “I am tired”
9. You are likely to need the assistant of another believer as you deal with demons in your personal life
10. You can cast out demons from anybody who willing opens himself to deliverance. Don’t waste your time on somebody who is still investigating your ministry because you will not succeed with him. Two must agree before you can walk together.
11. Once demons leave you, most diseases and depression will leave too because they are often caused by demons
12. It is God’s will that you be free from demonic oppression. Settle this in your heart as you seek deliverance through your personal prayers or from other children of God

So Jesus Set Them Up

So Jesus Set Them Up

Matt 14:32

Anybody could claim religious but wait till pressure comes.

 Anybody can claim a good preacher and make wonderful posts online, but wait until trials come.

One would have thought that Peter and the rest of the Apostles would have known enough to call to God for their deliverance, but instead they resorted to the old fleshly methods they had used as fishermen. To worsen the matter, they still held to old superstitious beliefs which claimed that ghosts walk on water.

Oh my God, they even called their Pastor a ghost! What? Pastor Jesus who just led them in a miracle service few hours ago, a ghost!

They saw miracles, heard wonderful teachings from the Master, participated in ministering to others the grace of God, but deep down inside of them, nothing had changed.

Is it possible that it was for this reason Jesus set them up to experience that storm. Yes, it is possible, because if He had told them before then their true identity, they would have told Him that He was wrong. The storm brought them to see their real spiritual position. It did not come to kill them, but as a messenger of God, the storm set them up so that they can be delivered from things that otherwise could ruin their eternal destiny.

Yes, Peter walked on the water; he had faith but the faith he had lacked stamina. It was soon to dissipate. It was in this storm that Peter knew he was not yet ready to do the things he saw Jesus do.

Thank God for this storm.

Who knows whether Peter was already preparing his posters and billboards for the launching of his ministry? Presumptuously believing that he had enough to take off now. And then the storm……

So he cried, “Help Lord!”.

 Thank God the cry came earlier than those of most young preachers today who cry when they can no longer turn back. Some cry when the devil have them in the jugular and squeezing the last breath out of them. They may be delivered but an indelible damage had been done.
If you ask me, Jesus threw them into the refiner’s fire, yes, he released them into the crucible. Perhaps He observed how they shared that bread to the five thousand capacity crowd. He observed how they saw the other men as inferior, he observed their pride. He perhaps observed the way they avoided those with contagious diseases lest they contract them. Outsiders saw them as great servants of God, but Jesus knew their true state. (This reminds me the day a CSO insulted me at Camp of Faith, Okigwe. He told me he is in charge here).

So He set them up. Let my reader ponder now his real identity; if you judge yourself you won’t fall into God’s judgment.

Maybe you should pray with me, “Lord, thank you for the storm in my life. I know it has not come to kill me but to give me lasting deliverance”.
