We not only pass through our children also transfer or have transferred Dr. Tony Evans is the negative consequences of those behaviors can be reversed To life celebrating. This is the alternative Dr. Tony Abbott, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the alternative, you may have your father's chin. Your mother's nose. Maybe they left you property or cash.
Or maybe they struck you with the legacy they never managed to get rid of themselves. That's the kind Dr. Evans will deal with today as he talks about reversing generational consequences. Let's join them all. All mothers and fathers they have transferred physiologically. Their makeup, we regularly talk about how a child looks like that but you look just like your mother just like your father are DNA determines the color of our skin. Racial makeup the shape of our features. We are reflections of the life of our parents physically and we give to our own children. Our DNA. It's the way biology works would not expect anything different than a child to bear the marks of the parents, the physical DNA is not the only thing that gets transferred there is a spiritual DNA that transfers as well.
This is and will see reality that passes between parents and children, grandparents, parents and children that leads to generational consequences.
It's a spiritual DNA. We not only pass to our children are good looks, but we also transfer all have transferred to us the patterns of sinful behavior. These patterns transferred from one generation to another.
Create spiritual scars on our lives. Scars that are reflected and then we pass them on. Usually, knowingly, usually not planned, but it is very real to our children.
When I talk about generational consequences as opposed to generational curses all explainable. I am talking about the negative repercussions of the cultivating of sinful patterns that we picked up across generations.
These negative patterns create negative results in our lives and in our world. These generational realities come in all shapes and sizes. We talked about some people being a born life we see people whose father was an alcoholic and may become an alcoholic. My grandparents got divorced. My parents got divorced. I'm getting divorced because there has been this repetition of a negative pattern past children are not born racist and not born hating a group of people because of the color of their skin, regardless which way it goes.
They pick that up. They learned that they pick up a pattern of discrimination or prejudice and racism they pick it up from their parents.
They inculcate the pattern into their lives and so they act out the transfer and then transferred and so it becomes a generational problem that even in our country. After well over 200 years with no fighting with generational transfer husbands and wives oppressing each other out while telling the children don't use profanity they watching the pattern on low and they may not use it around you as you threatening when they go out of their free to express the pattern they express the transfer that they have inculcated and absorbed in their lives.
Some would say well my parents greeted each other and the moment we scream at each other because, unbeknownst to you not only hurt you absorb became part of your spiritual DNA so you you just spell out what you know what you see practice becomes part of the generational transfer scar tissue on the soul just keeps reflecting itself over and over. Talk about a cycle of poverty where people have the mindset that being on welfare living on welfare. Even though I have the capacity to work a little muddled but they are not the fact that that's really okay because my grandmother was on welfare mother was on welfare. My grandmother was a single parent my mother was a single person.
That's how this thing rolls and so the cycle continues on and on and on in his transfer the consequent to the behavior and so these patterns that almost all are transferable that many will do what they do think what they think and act as they act because it's transfer is part of your life even if you don't like it. I know we all make this statement is not a great statement but is a true one.
That's why this pattern of behavior unaddressed produces building in consequences to our well-being, our peace, order, stability, my parents live in that I live in debt that the consequence of never getting out of it. Patterns that are generational map and span that God is a generational God. I am the goddesses of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Generations goes a little he thinks generationally. Someone .5 it says that you like one generation shall praise your name to another generation to see this work generational. All through Scripture because God created the human race to generate generation not only calms the opportunity for life becomes the transfer of spiritual as well as physical DNA. So what many people do not know when our society will giving birth to a method of generation because with transferring the negative patterns of a mess of generation they just picking it up and camping it up amplifying when I thought about generational consequences and talk about the transfer of the negative patterns.
Mother was worry, worry that in the temple I got a tip that it was a response.
I don't know. It's deep because even when we want to change it doesn't stop in the Scripture. I read to you from Ezekiel 18 God says you Israelites are saying a proverb proverb of the saying here is the proverb bursting says the proverb was the fathers have eaten sour grapes with the children's teeth on edge of the proverb will say what was it, meaning that it has 80 sour grapes can estimate my pink crooked River. While not to the messed up is because what daddy not work because daddy was who he was. That was the proper put another way, what they were saying was if the one from the moment day I would be like.
I am I be better off than them. If it wasn't for them. God says no you the proverb in don't blame mother and father for what you do. You have to stick with mother and father may have transferred it illustrated illustrated it amplified it but you took it all in my choice of words. Don't use what somebody else did in the previous generation as an excuse for you to keep doing. He says I am the God of the father goes for the soul of the father is the soul of the Son of Man, so it is the one who said that you so if you like your mom and daddy were messed up is because you show to adopt him.
Now I hear the objections. I hear the objections that I don't think that's fair because I was raised this week brought up the swing learned its way to observe this way. Why am I being held responsible for them.
He says don't use this proverb don't use this excuse is another way of saying regularly in the New Testament, Jesus would ask people are you willing to be made. You, Hassan. Are you willing before you get anything you want to know. Do you even want to change because if you don't want to change. Even God will help you to the river bottom wants to change. What's different even though you were raised in past down minute to know you don't have to live the rest of your life and it when Dr. Evans continues her message just a moment to talk to us about the importance of following something other than our parents footsteps will be right back after this forty-year reflection from Dr. Evans. As we come into the celebration, about 40 years since the beginning of the urban alternative.

Romans chapter 5 verse 12 says that just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, so death spread to all men because all have sin. 15 says for by the transgression of the one you guys because of what they got transferred to the human race was the transfer of rebellion against God.
God says that the subpoints of our sin. We bear because we make a decision to repeat the practice that may have been transferred to us is the soul of the father is not so the sun is mine, so don't use the excuse that he made me do it. You chose. So what you see in the Bible. Stay with me here is the transfer of consequences when another generation makes the decision to pick up what the previous generation did in Joshua chapter 7 and his whole family were judged by God because he stole the things that were under the band band by God but his children consented to the fact when his children consented to the bank before the judgment of the father stole okay let me give you another nine since the five acts chapter 5 Ananias stole from God that what you promise to give to God and jeopardize the whole church as well. Be glad it is what he lied about the foreman said did you do this is says because you oblige jeopardize the church. This will be the last one you tell me drop dead on the spot called did you take what God what was for the people of God is you just now you can join him to drop. She's not bad because she agreed with her husband on that which is outside of the will of God. So let me explain something when they rebel against the clearly revealed will of God preferences something about God clearly a statement you are to love God even more than you make some of the cycle of consequences keeps following from the rebellion of God's people. God makes it clear is that your 18 verse 20 that the kids do not the consequences of the iniquity of their parents. He said that. Also in Deuteronomy 2416. He says the consequence of the children is because of what they choose to do what makes this problem worse is that demons ride on top of the transfer. There is a spiritual round occupied by God and angels in the Holy Spirit as well as Satan and demons that I know because of unseen people don't think Israel demons are like roaches around garbage when I wrote no that garbage is finally no attractive and they bring their people will bring their posse. If you see one roach.
That means there is a family you got one that comes out in daylight to start things out. So when the gym well see the sin that it piggybacks on that. It's drawn to it. So the ribbon it so difficult to get rid of it that we have taken into our forefathers is because Monica Brown has amplified it so big in our lives that it becomes what seems to be something you can help or change the seventh of the Stephen demons (with all of them whole family first read this chapter 10 says that Christians can sit at the table of things versus 20 and 21 you can actually sit at the table. That means fellowship with them because of the table below is a table of demons you fellowship with the table agreement you invited a demon to dinner.
It means you fellowship with the city in which they assumed was an invitation to that of course makes the problem even more difficult to overcome. Now not only have overcome the problems you got overcome the demonic infestation of the problem. So once it adopted more than the issue you've adopted demonic engagement with the issue to know what you say give me some good news is good news because you can come if you can see some transfer from from the parents. If you don't like from grandparents okay that temperament that arguing that foster net cost and that fighting that disrespect the pornography that illegitimate gambling there putting you indent that that cycle of welfarism that that racism you that thing up in, and what you saw and heard obviously goes beyond singing the song break in between the songs in the living going on.
