Generational Bondage

WHAT IS GENERATIONAL BONDAGE?

(Thirty plus years ago God put Don Rogers in my life.  He trained and mentored me in spiritual ministry.  When he was no longer able to minister, I had the privilege of taking over his “Spiritual Warfare Ministries”.  He had written many articles about spiritual warfare.  I have edited and added to his work for this blog.)

What is generational bondage?

ANSWER:

Generational bondage is spiritual bondage that is passed on from parents to children to grandchildren. Such bondage is possible because God has said that it is possible. Exodus 34:6-7  “And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, ‘The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation’”

There are many similar verses to be found in the scriptures. No one who rebels against God’s word and deliberately continues in sin is exempt from the possibility of the curse of generational bondage. Like the curse of original sin, God has provided a way of escape through true repentance by the individual. God uses generational bondage to draw people away from their lives of self-indulgence to the sanctified life that He desires for them.

Generational bondage is often discerned by the sin patterns that repeat from generation to generation. It is not uncommon to observe generations of abuse, addiction, hatred, superstition and fear, pride, control and manipulation, rejection, sexual sins and perversions, aberrant religious beliefs, witchcraft and rebellion, etc.
