iniquity of the fathers upon the children -
There are scriptures that describe problems that are caused by the ancestors. In Exo 20:5 "Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them [idols], nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me". The key points of this verse are directed towards those who worship other gods which will cause problems, pain and punishment on the decedents if the decedents continue also hate God.
Scripture dealing with problem and the good news:
|1||Ezekiel 18:19-21||18 Yet you say, 'Why should the son not bear the punishment for the father's iniquity?' When the son has practiced justice and righteousness and has observed all My statutes and done them, he shall surely live. 20 The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the father's iniquity, nor will the father bear the punishment for the son's iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself. 21 But if the wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed and observes all My statutes and practices justice and righteousness, he shall surely live; he shall not die.|
Satanic Relm is apparently territorial which can Mimic a Generational Curse
We learn from the scriptures:
|1||Ephesians 6:12||For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.|
|2||Daniel 10:20||Then he said, "Do you understand why I came to you? But I shall now return to fight against the prince of Persia; so I am going forth, and behold, the prince of Greece is about to come. This indicates that Michael is having to fight against the principalities in the spirit realm that are over earthly geographical areas.|
|3||Psalm 22:12||is Messianic and points to the Messiah dying on the cross where it relates a satanic spiritual entity surrounding Him "Many bulls have surrounded me; Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled me." Note that the exact meaning of verse 12 is not known but it is the consensus of many that is a satanic entity. Read the whole Psalm 22 and it is absolutely an awe inspiring way to so many idioms of the cross such as verse 16 through 18.|
|4||Matthew 12:43-45||43 Now when the unclean spirit goes out of a man, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, and does not find it 44 Then it says, 'I will return to my house from which I came'; and when it comes, it finds it unoccupied, swept, and put in order 45 Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there, and the last state of that person is worse than the first. So also will it be with this evil generation.|
The spiritual interpretation apparently points to the following possibility which is the strongholds of satanic forces which can either manipulate through possession on un-saved mankind or oppress Believers is actively at work. The individual demonic fallen angels or demons, who are working a family with such things as adultery, alcoholism, drug addiction, physical abuse, murder and so much more have to be contended with by the succeeding generations because of the strongholds they have created in geographical proximity. This is why it is almost always seen in life that the offspring of the parents will commit, participate or fall into the same negative choices of the parents. Thank God for those who do not have broken the chain.
