Uprooting past evil seeds
Every seed sown has the potential to become a tree in future and bear fruits of its own. So also, every evil seed planted, if not uprooted, has a way of germinating and affecting not only the person that planted it, but also generations after.
In Genesis 49:1-4, the past deed of Reuben caught up with him. He slept with his father’s concubine and thought nobody knew about it. But years later, his father remembered at the verge of blessing him, and rather than bless his first son, he pronounced a curse on him. Even after Reuben’s death, many years later, his offspring suffered for that one single seed sown. It was when Moses realised it in Deuteronomy 33:6, that the curse was broken.
Many are going through some terrible things today, because of the seed sown in the past. Some cannot even discern what is wrong. Some, their parents sowed the seed and they are suffering from the consequences of such single act. Consulting witch doctor in the past and burying live ram or goat to afflict or gain promotion will also return to hunt the person, even though he or she is now born again. You need to search your life and find out if there is an evil seed that needs to be uprooted. There was a daughter of mine that brought every member of her family to me because of untimely death in the family. They were all dying at the young age of forty to forty-five years.
In the course of deliverance, we discovered that their grandfather was a ritualist and a witch doctor. One day, he captured a lady in her forties and as they were burying her alive, she placed a curse upon the man and his entire family. The curse was “just as I die young in my prime, so also will every member of your family die prematurely.” From that day, death took permanent residence in the family. Though their grandfather died a horrible death, the children and grandchildren started dying gradually, until they came for deliverance. By the special grace of God, the yoke of death was broken and the family released completely.
In 2 Sam. 12:1-8, David committed adultery with Bathsheba and killed her husband -Uriah. Even though David repented, the sword never departed from his family. His first son, Amnon committed incest with his stepsister, Tamar. Absalom killed Amnon his brother. Years later, he overthrew David and slept publicly with his father’s concubines. Eventually, in the course of war, he was beheaded by Joab, the captain of David’s army. When Solomon took over after the death of his father David, he killed his older brother, Adonijah. So, you see the evil seed David sown outlived him.
In 1 Sam. 2:27-32, the sons of Eli were busy stealing from the church and sleeping with the girls in the church, thereby desecrating the name of the Lord. Eli did nothing about it, except warning the children verbally. But it was an evil seed that was sown, and years later; the seed grew and became a tree, and brought fruits of death. Eli and his two sons, Hophni and Phinehas died the same day. Many years later, about four generations after the death of Eli, from his linage came Abiathar the priest who served David faithfully, but the evil seed that Hophni and Phinehas sowed caught up with him. He made just one mistake that allowed the prophecy to come to pass. 1 Kings 2:27
Whatever negative thing happening to you has a source. It could be as a result of a past mistake. Forgetting past mistakes does not solve past problem. If you do nothing about the past, sooner or later, it will catch up with the future to mortgage it.Today, every evil seed your parents sowed that is affecting your life is uprooted in Jesus name.
