The Power Of Godly Parents
It is vital and essential for us to stay away from every form of evil, especially the evil of idolatry. Idolatry involves the shedding of human blood in hidden, secret places, spiritually. It is not seen by human eyes but seen by the great eyes of almighty Jehovah. Worshipping a statue might seem harmless but it is great evil and abomination because it is the worship of death. Idol worship is a very fast, easy way of being protected and prosperous but it is a hidden disaster. It is easy because of the hidden human sacrifices and blood offered, but God will not be mocked. There will always be a pay day and a time of reckoning. It is better to be holy, beg for bread and wait for God’s favour than be lured into the rubbish of idolatry and false religion.
The damage done through idol worship clings to the lineage many years after the culprit has left this world. The innocent children must struggle and persist in prayer to clean up the mess of their parents and ancestors.
I have been young, and nowam old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread. He isever merciful, and lends; and his descendants are blessed. Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell forevermore. For the Lord loves justice, and does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off. – Psalm 37:25
Anytime you walk in the word of God and keep away from breaking the commands of God, you are sowing righteous seeds for your children and descendants. It is not a coincidence that John the Baptist was filled with the Holy Spirit from the womb and Jesus was filled with grace and truth and had favour with God and men. Solomon was also the beloved of the Lord. They all had righteous and clean lineage. Their bloodline was clean. The bloodline is very important and must be preserve and not polluted with idol worship and wickedness.
For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb. – Luke 1:15
And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and men. – Luke 2:52
The only way to bless and preserve your descendants is by worshipping God in Spirit and in truth and by keeping away from every appearance of evil, especially idol worship.
