Topic: You Shall Not Worship Idols [Sunday February 5, 2017]
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt … you shall have no other gods besides me.” (Exodus 20: 2-3)
Worshiping strange gods brings you into bondage. InDeut. 27:14-26, the Bible highlights some of the things that can bring one under a curse.
Anything that takes the place of God in your life is an idol. If you worship idols, and if you don’t cater for your parents, you are cursed. Taking another man’s land brings you under a curse. Sleeping with your father’s wife brings you under a curse. I am not the one saying it. It is there in Deut. 27:20. You may argue that it is your tradition. When your father died, his wife was given to you. Is that the tradition? Which will you obey your tradition or the Word of God?
Conspiring against people and committing murder bring you under a curse. Many people are living under curses. Perhaps you or your forebears were responsible for that curse. The Bible says the curse would continue for four generations, and that is true unless you repent.
Today, the blood of Jesus will break the power of those curses over your life and destiny. You shall be free in the name of Jesus Christ. Your family shall be free. The works of your hands shall be free. Your education shall be free. Your unborn generations shall be free.
No matter what the enemy says, continue to declare your deliverance and freedom. No power can stop you. He that is in you is greater than he that is in the world.
WORD OF WISDOM: When you serve idols, your life is reduced to a doll.
PRAYER/CONFESSION: I am delivered from the power of curses and satanic yokes. I shall no longer serve the devil with my body. He that is in me, Jesus Christ the son of the living God is greater than ancestral curses and covenants. I am free, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
