Whatever went wrong in the life of a man is a chain that connects his past to his future. If this chain is not broken, similar occurrence will take place again. This is why you see some men married five or six times. It is evil! And if this starts with one man, it will continue down his generation.
When the children of Jacob disobeyed him, he was very angry, and he laid a curse on them before he died. He forgot that he was the author of whatever atrocity his children had committed. Whatever happened in our life, the Father doesn’t want it to continue down the generation but expects us to think deep and find solution to it in our life time, so that nobody will suffer such thing again throughout our generation. Just as death and hardship came to us through Adam, so also life, eternal life came to us through Jesus Christ our Saviour. The Father wants us to learn through this, so that that which plagued a man will end there.
The same Father who said in the Book of Exodus 20:5 that, “I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me.” He also said in the Book of Ezekiel 18:1-4 that, “Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, "What do you mean by using this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, 'The fathers eat the sour grapes, But the children's teeth are set on edge'? As I live, declares the Lord God, you are surely not going to use this proverb in Israel anymore. Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die.”” He went further to lay more emphasis on this throughout the whole chapter.
Therefore, as aforementioned, it’s a taboo for a man to fall into the same pit twice, and a greater taboo for his children to fall into the same pit especially this age of enormous wisdom and knowledge. The Word of the Father is there, alive and fresh for us every day, so that no matter what strategy the enemies derived to hurt us, we could escape their traps through the revelation in His Word. I pray for you this day that Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jehovah God will open your heart and eyes to see where you’ve missed it, so you can sit back and think deep, and the light of Him who died for you on the cross will shine upon every darkness of your life in Jesus name. Amen!
