The Bible mentions “generational curses” in several places (Exodus 20:5; 34:7; Numbers 14:18; Deut. 5:9). God warns that He is “a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me.” But what does He have to say about those that love Him?
Of the last sayings of Christ on the cross, none is more important or more poignant than, “It is finished.” Found only in the Gospel of John, the Greek word translated “it is finished” is tetelestai, an accounting term that means “paid in full.” When Jesus uttered those words, He was declaring the debt owed to His Father was wiped away completely and forever.
I value the Holy Scriptures like a treasure to unfold. They are applicable for real life matters, as well as strengthening the inner man with power. They my Bread of Life, feeding my spirit while transforming me day by day. Anyone who knew my past would hardly recognize me now. The Word of God has made me "wiser than my enemies (Ps. 119:98)" and I expect even more of the same as I continue to embrace the riches of God's Word.
