SHM REFLECTIONS_Sins of the Fathers.

Many go through life struggling with myriad issues in a relentless manner. It is a cyclic existence from one crisis to the other. And these upheavals have no pattern to them – they may be financial today, marital tomorrow and health woes the day after!

Deep cause of this life of stress and internal strife is often traceable to sin, active or passive. (Please bear in mind that sin is sin, no categories, no extent of severity. I use “active or passive” for the purpose of this topic only). By “passive” sin I mean third party sin! Because of the eternal principle of cause and effect, quite a number of the so besieged are paying for the sins of their fathers (read mothers too). But it does not have to be so.

For such people, we have this equally eternal solution. The Bishop of my soul says, come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden! His recipe is rest! Now, because the recipe appears (note my choice of word – APPEARS) simple, many ignore it or at the least underrate it’s potency!!!

The solution lies in changing your fatherhood, exchanging the natural one for the supernatural by confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior! Sounds easy, right? WRONG!!! Otherwise many would have become free. Just look around you and you’d see the plenteous harvest that is left to be gathered in!

Let me illustrate my point thus: I come from the Yoruba stock of Nigeria, and the culture of the people permit for family praise (called oriki). A form of lineage praise that they believe denote your past; but really is a confession for your future! I was born an Egba man. (From Abeokuta, Ogun State of Nigeria)

For example, Egba people call themselves “Omo Olumo”, i.e descendants of Olumo, who was a local freedom fighter. Now, no matter the forum, when songs or praises are spawn in honor of that fellow, I stand out in my opposition to whatever is being done. After a while people noticed and asked why. My standard reply has always being that I am of a different stock and heritage now. I am a citizen of heaven, and the Almighty God is my Father. I am joint heirs with Jesus Christ. In other words, I AM A NEW CREATURE. The interesting thing is that I studied the history of the Olumo fellow, and discovered that despite his valor, he lived a life of strife and never had a peaceful abode! Somehow, this manifests in the lives of many around who sing the fellows praises as their progenitor! But I met Jesus Christ and re-calibrated, and has the story been different or what!!!

To be able to do this takes a shift in mindset! And it will not happen without the active opposition of ‘well wishers’ who will genuinely believe you have missed the plot; as many around me used to think! But if you want to be free from the sins of the fathers, you must understand and apply this paradigm shift. That way, you get the rest promised by my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

He is calling unto someone today. Who is ready to heed His call? Who is ready for freedom from the sins of the fathers? In box me if you are; or if you are willing to re dedicate!

We love you. Shalom!
