The question is, is it time to break the cycle under Tony Evans talks about overcoming sinful patterns passed down from our parents will be locked in to what mom and dad celebrating faithfulness. This is the alternative Dr. Tony Abbott, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the Trinity is undeniable.

The choices have consequences in the Bible is clear that even the choices family members have made before us will affect our circumstances that there is a way to reverse negative consequences and that's what Tony explores today. Let's join them pass to our children are good looks, but we also transfer transferred to us, sinful behavior earns transferred from one generation to another. Create spiritual scars on our lives.*We pass them on. Usually, knowingly, usually not planned, but it is very real to our children. These generational realities come in all shapes and sizes.

We talked about some people available online look like that, just we see people 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. Children are not born racist on hating a group of people because of the color of their skin, regardless which way it goes. They pick that up. They learn they pickup up discrimination and prejudice and they pick it up and that parent they inculcate the pattern into their lives and sold out the transfer and then transfer and soil becomes a generational problem that even in our country.

After well over 200 years with no fighting with a generational transfer. Paul is writing to Christians who were doing too well with their freedom.

They were talking a good game but experiencing freedom as a whole another story comes in verse 10 and he says in Galatians 3 for as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse, for it is written because it is everyone who does not abide by all things written in the book of the law to performed now that no one is justified by the law before God is evident, for the righteous man shall live by faith. However, the law is not of faith.

On the contrary, he who practices them shall live by them. Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us, for it is written, cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, Gentiles hips so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit for stay with me. He says the rules of God law is the 10 Commandments of God cannot pick your problem.

My problem the law. The law is centered in the 10 Commandments 10 times God says thou shall not, thou shall not, thou shall not counsel a grade of the 10 Commandments is that Scripture says the 10 Commandments, the law of God is.

We all agree we should do those 10 things the law is good, but he says with the law comes a curse.

Why, because all the law can do is show you the problem. It cannot fix God in the law of Moses is talking about God, which is the nominal think members repeating the New Testament God is good to expose you, but not to deliver you see many people have been wrong idea about how to approach God, which are good God as good as this is like a this morning when you got up went to the mirror and the mirror I showed you messed up you show do you all messed up.

You sleep habits. The mess you up last because you go in front of that mirror you held out a place you got driven coming down the mountain you got sleep, Nadia got wrinkles on your face when you slept on the pillbox mirror and you are hot, but didn't want you with you went to the mirror to see how things really because without the mirror, you would be selflessly you would think you looking good when you look at what happened there. So you utilize the mirror to reveal but what you do not do then do it. The mirror off the wall to fix.

You don't come here with the mirror you wash your face with the mirror you brush your teeth with the mirror. No you don't use the mirror to fix because that's not good but not good to fix it. It's only good to reveal it.

So what do they go to the wolves to fix the problem and make New Year's resolutions and will do this anymore promise not to do this anymore. I really really promise this time been a dedicated and rededicated every rededicate on the rededication was bad about it is they needed to talk about the insincere person, the sincere person really comes and they made it really is revolution for a week or two. It works for month or so would works until that thing lands back up again you getting that right situation. Think about today that well just comes back.

The chicken comes back just comes back. So let's skip upon the Paul is saying all the Lord can do, which is good is to continue to exist especially with what you need to know that you need to know what's wrong. But the law can't make it right. So women committing myself to the law can't make it right. You can only tell me what's wrong that I'm doing that I shouldn't be doing that I got from my parents that I passing to my kids. What's going make it right.

He says in verse 14, in order that in Christ Jesus, the blessings of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit. Faith across Jesus broke the back of Satan.

The Bible says that in Colossians 2 he condemned the devil so flip Wilson wasn't correct.

The devil can't make you do anything. The cross broke. What's this, his authority did not remove his but it removed his authority. Authority legitimate use criminals out of the policeman have a boat but only the policeman has a batch he has legal fees using it correctly so Satan's broken. Although he still possesses power and tries to do to you if you have accepted Jesus Christ as a legitimate legitimate, with a scheme to control you and you only have one scheme comes out of different life but I only have one scheme to keep going away to keep that anger from you stopping it from keeping that addiction you letting go of it got one scheme, one scheme is to get a new head like this you're thinking to make thoughts your thoughts, so please put this thought in your head is now your thoughts telling your action.

What to do, but it came from your brain and put their demonic transfer from the mother mother father may have done something. The demons grabbed it, delivered it to your head in your life. So the demonic realm uses its power of this section to put into your life so that it becomes your action so that you bear the consequences of your decision came from your mind been introduced. So God says the death of Jesus Christ, broke the curse of the law.

He says in order that God might give you the spirit watch this now. This is the most important feature is the spirits job if you've accepted Christ. Those are the only ones that have the spirit as the spirits job to make happen what the law said should happen but don't have the power to make happen. The spirits job is to make happen what the law requires. The law requires it. So you need to know what's required, but the law can help you do it. Dr. Evans will have more and what we can do to receive the Holy Spirit's help when he returns in just a moment for so Tony has written a brand-new book called U-turns that goes hand-in-hand with today's lesson.

Here's Dr. Evans with more of today's lesson slid down the highway spent 75 miles an hour all to continue to pull over and congratulated them please you abandon logs want to write you a ticket of congratulations be limited make you feel good to be limited there to give them the legal right to pull you over when you break the law, but it's the law of condemnation. Galatians 516.

He says the spirits job is to bring the promises of God into your life.

Verse 16 of The father Galatians, but I say you walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desires of the flesh of the flesh sets its desire against the spirit to spirit against the flesh of these are in opposition to one another so that you may not do the things that you please. If you are led by the Spirit, you are not underneath the law will the job of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer is to make real the law of God activated in your life. My life, regardless of what you got for mom and dad walked in the spirit and you will not flesh the spirits job is to give you the ability to over the flesh is flesh still wants to do all the flesh is not going to yield. It's like the difference between gravity and dynamics gravity says what goes up must come down when you get a plane moving at a certain speed with a certain flask until grabbing it.

So that's why you can fly what the spirit does is override the flash when the flash is still flesh raised the question God is given the spirit to everybody who comes to cross Jesus Christ broke the curse of the cross, so you will no longer personally feel like I'm the curse that is giving you a curse. That's a lot. We just read Jesus Christ's. So don't ever talk about you being cursed again if you know Jesus Christ as a consequence of the law is broken. Just know that we say will print and we think that covers the day. No, that covers the morning K is all I covers.

In fact, it covers a few minutes in the I thought I covers walking is continuous movement right one step after another. Those who walk in the spirit maybe every single time you want to invite the spirit to all the so you are in movement with the spirit whenever it comes and it's going to come up depending upon how deep you are into it. Whatever the addiction of the sample the circumstance to come out right now. I desire to do that which is outside of the will of God because you broke the curse on the cross. I now invoke the Holy Spirit to give me the ability right now what you just did was walk in the spirit popped up in Alameda and Alameda to Alameda you take another staff should become 30 minutes later you take another step becomes 10 minutes later you take another so you learn to stand what the spirit whose job it is to make them all come alive in your life and to do with the law could not do cannot fix things and when you do this, you no longer under the law, meaning under its condemnation is 33 verses 1450 when I say to the wicked.

You will surely die, and he turned from his sin, and practices, justice and righteousness. If a wicked man restores a plant pays back what he is taken by robbery walks by the statutes which ensure life without committing iniquity, he shall surely live, he shall not if a man commits iniquity, he shall surely die.

Now God says you will surely die. You did okay and what is physical spiritual separation got that you shall surely die. Let me surely but then it comes right back in the next person says when that person repents shall surely die in a reversal of) that he says when you turn repentance when you turn from sin to God by means of the Holy Spirit. We just went over was given victory. There is a reversal of consequence. God decides how much you know all that.

But there is a reversal in that statement surely request the Bible says God cannot change it says is the same yesterday today and forever. So how can you tell me, surely God didn't tell me about it. I'm not sure that many not mean you personally which we hope not but surely shall not pay any substantive consequence. But he says he doesn't change like this changed me. One thing is this what we have is the attributes of God. God has attributes perfections characteristics is on the present submission, veracity, grace, mercy to justice.

Wrath got all the different characteristics. God reacts to sin by justice and wrath. He has to because that's part of his makeup and he must surely respond to, but will turn by means of the spirit who gives you power to override the cry of the flash once you turn return you all switching attributes you are relating to see over here and obedience you will, but once you turn and return your now located on the mercy yacht turning change God he still got rapid justice, but you're no longer operating on the US turn when you turn your now operating under his mercy and grace which frees him to relate to all but instead of over here change he still got justice please note relocate what you read. Okay now relate to you to your new location and the movement in which because he remains constant but repentance means you by means of the spirit so he can offer you something in his own sovereign.
