Repenting for Others and the Sins of the Parents

David Eells

I received this question from a sister and put my comments in red.

I'm forwarding this to you as it is in line with your ministry. Personally, I have mixed emotions about it. On one hand, God said in the Old Testament that He no longer holds the sins of the Father against the children.

This is because for those who believe,Jesus broke the genetic curse which is passed on through the blood of parents. We had a woman in our assembly who adopted three babies from birth but didn't know the biological parents. As each child entered puberty they started manifesting fornication, lying and stealing, and the mother was confused because she had raised them all to be Christians. She wanted to find out who the biological parents were and was able to because an HRS worker turned her back while she looked at their files. She went to see the mother and found out that she was just like them with the same sins. Even though the parents did not raise the children their sins were passed on through the blood. As we prayed for these children God saved them and the genetic curse was broken. Now they do not suffer for the sins of the parents. Many Christians still suffer for the sins of their parents and need to believe the Gospel to be delivered.

{Eze.18:1} The word of Jehovah came unto me again, saying, {2} What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge? {3} As I live, saith the Lord Jehovah, ye shall not have [occasion] any more to use this proverb in Israel. Those in true spiritual Israel are delivered from the sins of the parents by the blood of the Lamb. Jesus became a curse for us (Gal.3:13,14). {18:20} The soul that sinneth, it shall die: the son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. "For each man shall bear his own burden" (Gal.6:5).

That being so, then this admonition to repent of the sins of the Fathers before us or we will be punished seems contrary, although every generation has those who are prejudiced and mistreat others for which they as individuals should repent. Is every generation of America going to have to repent for what their forefathers did? When does it end? We can repent for the sins of our parents, which are genetically in us, but we cannot repent of their sins for them as some say. Everyone has to repent for themselves. :o) A sister we know of thought this would work for New Orleans but God quickly told her that it wouldn't. She said",We stopped over inNew Orleans on July 2nd. Werepented and interceded for that city. Afterwards as we turned to leave,the Lord spoke clearly to two of us. What He said to me was startling. He said, "I will destroy this city in a day!" Obviously repenting for someone else doesn't work for two months later the city was gone.

Somebelieve verses like this prove to that false doctrine. {Neh.9:2} And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all foreigners, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers. This is for Christians who are separated from Americans. Our sins, whichARE the iniquities of our fathers in us, can be confessed and forsaken.

Secondly, as one scripture verse points out, "Lord, if you count our sins, who will be able to stand?" Not an exact quote, but close. The idea thatNashville or Las Vegas are more sinful than other states is possible, butif God wants to, He could pick any state and would be able to find enough reasons to punish the people therein. However, from the Old Testament, I get the impression that, in spite of men's sinfulness, God is looking for reasons to spare people, such asfor the sake ofany righteous therein. When messagescalling forrepentance come through, I take them seriously because I don't want to take a chance of destruction coming. But I do wonder sometimes --such as in the forward below. "The wicked is a ransom for the righteous". When God judges the wicked, the righteous get the fear of God and repent like when God judged Egypt, and Israel came out from among them. God is gathering sinners into cities to give a demonstration for the righteous who like Lot will come out from among them. The judging of the wicked is a ransom, which is the price God is willing to pay for the righteous to be free from bondage. 10 Judgments fell on Egypt and Israel tempted God 10 times in the wilderness.
