God punishes and wipes out the wicked off the face of the earth. He even punishes the children for the wickedness and the sins of their fathers. That is why nations, cities, families have been wiped out by disaster, tornadoes, tsunamis, earth quakes, famine, sicknesses, AIDS… The curse of God is is in the house and on the nation that is wicked and God even wipes out their children. That is why we have to repent and not only repent for our own sins but as nations we have to repent, we have to repent for the sins of our fathers.
We read in Numbers 14:18 “The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; HE PUNISHES THE CHILDREN FOR THE SIN OF THE PARENTS TO THE THIRD AND FOURTH GENERATION.”
Many nations are cursed, many families are cursed. There are generational curses on people, nations and families. Whenever the children of Israel repented they also repented for the sins of their fathers. We read in:
Daniel 9:8 “To us, O LORD, belongs open shame, to our kings, to our princes, and
to our fathers, because WE have sinned against Thee..”
Jeremiah 14:20 “WE acknowledge our wickedness, LORD, and the guilt of
our fathers, for WE have sinned against Thee…”
Jeremiah 3:25 “Let us lie down in our shame, and let our dishonor cover us. For WE have sinned against the LORD our God, WE and our fathers, from our youth even to this day, and WE have not obeyed the voice of the LORD our God.”
Psalm 106:6 “WE have sinned like our fathers, WE have committed iniquity, WE have behaved wickedly.”
Lamentations 5:7 “Our fathers sinned, and are no more; It is WE who have borne their iniquities.”
WE have to repent of the sins of our fathers and our own sins. We have to TURN away from the WAYS OF THE FATHERS and we have to obey Jesus Christ. We have to turn away from WICKEDNESS, we have to BREAK THE CURSE. We have to plead God for mercy for ourselves and also for the sins of our fathers of else the WRATH OF GOD WILL REMAIN on our countries, on our families and on ourselves.
We cannot blame anybody else, but we can humble ourselves before God. He is full of mercy and He will hear our prayers and extend mercy to those who repent from their evil ways and who OBEY Him.
May Jesus bless you.
