How can I break free from family weaknesses? In this session Wilma Watson will show us how we can be free from family weaknesses.
Wilma has been helping us break free from emotional baggage. So far, we have removed inner shame, unforgiveness and unhealthy soul ties.
In this session we will see from the Bible how we can break free from family weaknesses – unhealthy family patterns – a load that many of us carry without realizing.
Jesus made it possible for us to know real freedom, not only from sin, but from the power that causes us to have a tendency toward family weaknesses.
Isaiah 53:5 says: He (Jesus) was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities. And Isaiah 53:6 (NKJ) tells us that, The Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
Do you know what the difference is between transgressions and iniquities?
I’ve asked a lot of people if they understand the difference between iniquity and transgressions and most people do not know what iniquity is. So, they don’t fully understand what Jesus did on the Cross, as shown in Isaiah 53 verse 5.
Transgression is – wrong-doing; a violation of a law.
Iniquity is – perversity and depravity (Unger’s Bible Dictionary)
Perversity is – a state of deviating from what is good.
Depravity is – a state of moral corruption.
Perversity and depravity are both states of being.
Iniquity is a state of being!
Transgressions are acts of sin – it’s who you are that causes you to sin – the Bible refers to it as your sinful nature.
We read in the book of Numbers chapter 14 verse 18: The Lord is slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love, forgiving iniquity and transgression, but by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the parents upon the children to the third and the fourth generation.
This Bible verse is saying that family weaknesses and perversity can come down from previous generations because of sin.
Wilma was a district nurse for an early discharge program assisting mums and babies after they came home from hospital. She came to a home and was shown their 2-day-old baby’s little finger on the right hand which was pointing straight out. The mother explained that their first child had the same malformation and that her husband had been in an accident when he was five, which caused his little finger on his right hand to point out, the same as both babies.
It was amazing, Wilma saw first-hand how physical iniquities can come through trauma.
Family weaknesses (iniquitous pattern) can commence and be set in place in your own generation or be reinforced. We saw this recently in someone who had multiple traumas in her life.
Unwittingly, people can pass on to their offspring an incorrect belief, sexual, emotional or physical iniquity. In this session, we will help you break all iniquitous patterns so that your future generations will be blessed, instead of cursed.
Let’s look at what the Bible says in the New Testament about iniquities:
Let everyone who names the Lord give up all iniquities and stand aloof from it. 2 Timothy 2:19 (Amp).
Here is another verse: Jesus who gave Himself on our behalf that he might redeem us (purchase our freedom) from all iniquity. Titus 2:14 (Amp).
Simon the Sorcerer’s story explains iniquity.
Acts 8:13 following says, “Simon himself believed and was baptized…When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money and said, “Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.” Peter answered: “May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money! You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God. Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that he may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart. For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin.”
In the King James version of the Bible it says: For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity. (In the margin it says, “in the fetter of iniquity”) Acts 8:23.
Even as a believer, Simon the sorcerer had not repented and renounced witchcraft, he had only stopped doing it.
He had not put off or cast off the works of darkness and put on the Lord Jesus Christ.
That is what Romans 13:12a & 14b tells us to do: Put off the works of darkness…Put on the Lord Jesus Christ.
Prayer to break free from family weaknesses by putting off the works of darkness.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for dying not only for my sins, but for my iniquities also. Lord Jesus, I submit myself to You today in unreserved obedience. I forgive the sins of whoever first opened the door to the iniquity back in my family line.
In Your Name, Jesus, I renounce all perversity and depravity in my (father’s) ___ lineage and my (mother’s) ___ lineage. And my spouse’s _____ lineage.
In Your Name, Jesus, I cut off all iniquity and declare that the blood of Jesus now stands as a wall of separation, between myself and my father and mother. And that the blood of Jesus stands between myself and my grandparents on both sides.
I also declare that the blood of Jesus stands between myself and my great Grandparents on both sides. And my great, great Grandparents on both sides.
Iniquitous pattern of incorrect belief
In Jesus’ mighty Name, I break off and close down the iniquitous pattern of incorrect belief. I confess and renounce anything that would keep my family from seeing the truth. Such as the sin of pride, stubbornness, rebellion and deception. Doubt, unbelief and all idolatry known and unknown.
I ask for forgiveness and in Your Name, Jesus, I renounce all ungodly altars. Ceremonial and ritual practices and acts, all involvement and contact with secret societies and false religions. The occult and witchcraft in every form, which have been practiced by myself, my family and ancestors.
I repent, renounce and release myself from all word curses spoken by me, over me or over any of my ancestors.
I break and render powerless and release myself from every spell, curse, blood covenant or vow from the preceding generations.
I ask for forgiveness and in Your Name, Jesus, I break all deceptive and destructive patterns through the occult or witchcraft in me and my families’ lives. Such as being accident prone, infertility, divorce and family alienation. Continual financial insufficiency and the loss of advancement.
I ask for forgiveness and in Your Name, Jesus, render powerless and break the generational cycle of every behavioral iniquity known or unknown. The addictive patterns of thievery, smoking, alcohol, gambling, and drugs and their destructive side effects.
I confess, repent and renounce all unclean sexual iniquities which have been practiced by me, or in my family bloodline. The attraction to the same sex, incest, pornography, bestiality, promiscuity, illegitimacy, adultery and abortions.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, I now cut off all the effects of these sins, known and unknown, including all ungodly soul ties.
In the Name of Jesus, I release myself from every physical iniquity, including all genetic disorders resulting in related diseases and conditions.
I pray that You would heal every physical and emotional destructive cellular memory, right through to my DNA. Father, I ask You to work a creative miracle and restore my genes to how You originally designed them.
I claim healthy cells, organs and body systems and command my genes to be made whole in Jesus’ Name.
I repent, cancel and release myself from the curse of any repeated and chronic sicknesses. Untimely death and any effects of war in my family bloodline.
I ask for forgiveness and in the name of Jesus, close down all emotional iniquities, including any mental or emotional breakdowns. All the effects of injustice, unhealed emotional wounds, trauma and shame.
I repent for all unforgiveness my family has held against others in regard to all forms of abuse.
I put a stop to the generational cycle of shame, an unloving spirit, and a spirit of self-rejection. I also put a stop to generational rebellion, self-righteousness, pride, selfishness, jealousy, guilt, grief. Control, manipulation, unforgiveness, resentment, anger, depression, anxiety, fear and paranoia.
I cancel every assignment of darkness through the sins of my former generations and remove every legal right of the demonic. They will no longer trouble me and my family. As they have now been removed and erased through the Blood of Jesus.
In Your Name, Jesus, I command every familiar spirit to leave now.
Thank You, Jesus that Your blood has answered Satan’s accusations and that they have now been silenced against me and my family.
This is the conclusion of this session.
