Our forefathers never experienced the level of evil that we are seeing in these last days.II Timothy 3:1:This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.An increase of evil is consuming this generation.Sin is everywhere – including the sin of fornication, adultery, and homosexuality – and these sins are connected to idolatry.We must be the generation that says enough is enough.We must throw out our traditional methods and our religious traditional décor.We must stop allowing Satan’s evil into our homes.Whether nakedness and sin is coming into our home through pictures, paintings, statues, books, television, or computers the same unclean spirits of perversion are behind them all.Satan is just waiting for us to look at nakedness the first time hoping that he can get us to look a second time, and then he knows he has us hooked.Psalm 101:3:I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.Sin leads to more sin until finally it destroys us.James 1:14-16:But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin:and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.Do not err, my beloved brethren.I Peter 2:11:Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.The Hebrew word for ‘soul’ in the Old Testament is “nephesh, neh’-fesh; …sense… appetite… breath… desire… greedy… heart… life… lust… mind… pleasure… will”.The Greek word for ‘soul’ in the New Testament is “psuche, psoo-khay’; …breath… heart… mind”.The Greek terms “exactly correspond respectively” to the Hebrew.
Everywhere we look today we see some form of nakedness and are not intentionally looking for it.But, when a person repeatedly looks and willfully does not turn his/her head is where they make their greatest mistake.Proverbs 28:18:Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved:but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.We must pray daily for God to cover our eyes and protect us from temptation.In this world nakedness and sin are all around, but Christians will be surprised to learn that the most dangerous form can be found in their own homes.The greatest deception in the Christian world today is that Satan has enticed us to display nakedness in our home that has a religious theme, and then has convinced us that it is not really pornography but is clean.Job 14:4:Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean?not one.Note:Many who practice homosexuality are drawn to the so-called religious yet unclean paintings by Michelangelo and Davinci.See my document on ‘pornography’, which includes pornography with a religious theme.
Satan and his evil spirits can plant seeds of sin in our eyes by just getting us to look at nakedness – if you do not believe this then what about Noah’s son Ham?The Bible tells us Ham looked at his father’s nakedness – then he went and told his brothers what he did.Ham disobeyed God’s Word.Leviticus 18:7:The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover:she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.Read all of Leviticus Chapter 18 for more insight on the sin of uncovering one’s nakedness, especially a family member.Ham opened his eyes to sin, and to the lust of the flesh – then went out without covering his father’s nakedness.Genesis 9:18-25:And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth:and Ham is the father of Canaan.These are the three sons of Noah:and of them was the whole earth overspread.And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.The name ‘Canaan’ in Genesis 9:25 means both the son of Ham, and the country.In Genesis 9:25 the Hebrew word ‘Canaan’ is kenaan, ken-ah’-an; humiliated; Kenaan, a son of Ham; also the country inhabited by him.Genesis 9:18-25 is a perfect example of how bad things can, and do, happen to a person while in a drunken state.Also see Genesis 19:32-38 for another example of drinking and intoxication.
If you study Bible history you will find that Canaan inhabited the country which shared his name.To confirm this see the Hebrew translation of the word ‘Canaan’ quoted in the previous paragraph.Canaan’s and his descendents possessed the Canaanite cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.His future generations became so evil that God destroyed them.Genesis 19:24-25:Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.With just one look at his father’s nakedness Ham allowed spiritually evil seeds to be planted in his eyes and his mind which started a chain re-action of sin that eventually led to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.Leviticus 18:7:The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover…Genesis 9:22:And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father…Because Ham and his father were the same gender what Ham allowed into his eyes and his mind blossomed into homosexuality and incest in his latter generations.One sinful look gave Satan the spiritual right (permission) to entice and lure Canaan’s future generations (the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah) into the sinful practice of homosexuality.They were visited and seduced by the same evil spirits that enticed Ham to sin – and like Ham they fell for it.According to Bible history Ham’s descendents were involved in Baal worship, and these male pagan images were the connection that Satan needed to visit them with the iniquity of their forefathers – Ham and Canaan.Idolatry and iniquity do go hand in hand.I Samuel 15:23:For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.Both Exodus 20:5 and Deuteronomy 5:9 say that because of idolatry children are visited with the iniquity of their forefathers to 3 or 4 generations.Dependent on how many generations continue to follow the same pattern of sin – or to have unclean pagan images (which is a sin) – the chain of iniquity can continue for many generations.The Hebrew word for ‘iniquity’ in Exodus 20:5 and Deuteronomy 5:9 is “avon, aw-vone’; or avown; perversity, i.e. (moral) evil… mischief, punishment (of iniquity), sin”.
There are many different types of unnatural relationships and all can lead to unnatural and unholy cords in a person’s life.Information about sexual cords and a prayer to sever unnatural and unholy one’s can be found near the end of this document; along with a prayer of deliverance from generational patterns of iniquity. Having unnatural relationships within a family will lead to many problems, especially for the children when they are grown.These unnatural cords hinder them from becoming united with their spouse (as the Bible says they should). Genesis 2:24:Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife:and they shall be one flesh.Matthew 19:5:And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife:and they twain shall be one flesh?Mark 10:7-8:For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife:And they twain shall be one flesh:so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.Ephesians 5:31:For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.Having unnatural family ties can also lead to sexual sins, such as:incest between a parent and child or other family member(s); including sexual relations between siblings (or even other children outside of the family).All unholy and unnatural cords are inspired by evil spirits.This is why it is so important for people, especially Christians, to keep Biblical order in their family and to remove all the unclean pagan images from their homes (especially any mother/child images; such as the pagan images and statues referred to as Mary and baby Jesus).These mother/child images and statues have a pagan history dating back to ancient Egypt, as do lady images with wings.The Egyptian mother/child statues were named Isis and Horus.Today you can still find the Egyptian winged Isis – what Christians falsely refer to as a lady angel – on Wiccan [white witchcraft] bibles.Goddess worship, and mother/child worship have been around for a long time (even before Mary had Jesus).The Egyptian pagan practice of mother/child reverence continues today – though Christians have given today’s imagery the names Mary and Jesus. Isaiah 19:1:The burden of Egypt.Behold, the Lord rideth upon a swift cloud, and shall come into Egypt:and the idols of Egypt shall be moved at his presence, and the heart of Egypt shall melt in the midst of it.All idolatry is an abomination to God; even if you name it after his Son!See my document on ‘pictures of Jesus’.
The Lord warned His people against having images or idols fashioned after the flesh because He knew it would lead to lust of the flesh.In the Hebrew/Greek translation lust is also part of our soul.If we do not abstain from all types of fleshly lust (even having images of reverence fashioned after lustful flesh)it will war against our soul (mind, will, and emotions).I Peter 2:11:Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.For a Christian, continual surrender to fleshly lust can result in oppression and bondage to evil spirits.If a Christian lives in an environment surrounded by pagan images of reverence they will have a hard time with fleshly lust(s).If Christians would throw away their pagan objects it would be much easier for them to turn away from evil temptation.
In the Bible the pagan followers (worshippers) of graven images were involved in all forms of sexual lusts, including homosexuality.Just by possessing replicas of pagan objects we are showing reverence to false gods – possibly the same gods our ancestors worshipped.We are allowing evil seducing unclean spirits access into our home through unclean decoration(s).Changing the names and clothing on these unclean objects does not change their meaning. Ezekiel 16:17-18:Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them, And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredest them:and thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them.
Let’s look at the following scripture about how all pagan images and statues of ordinary man (including the counterfeit images we have of Jesus Christ) are connected with homosexuality, perversion, and false worship.Keep in mind that the realJesus Christ is part of the Godhead(Colossians 2:9; Acts 17:29-30) and cannot represented by man-made images or statues.Romans 1:20-32:For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the creator, who is blessed for ever.Amen.For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections:for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful.Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but have pleasure in them that do them.This is why it is so important not to make images of the Godhead!Jesus Christ is a part of the Godhead!Acts 17:29:Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.Colossians 2:6, 9:As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him.For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.God will not share His glory, or praise, with a graven image, even the images we name after Jesus Christ!Isaiah 42:8:I am the Lord:that is my name:and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
In the Bible having images and statues of reverence was a practice of heathens, pagans, and of people who may have once served God but turned their back on Him.I Chronicles 16:26 and Psalm 96:5:For all the gods of the people are idols:but the Lord made the heavens.See my document on ‘idols’.By bringing abominations into our home we could forfeit our relationship with God!The truth is any ‘image’ of reverence from any culture – including Christian culture – is only an idolatrous imitation of a heathen god.Exodus 20:3 and Deuteronomy 5:7:Thou shalt have no other gods before me.See comment about the heathen god Zeus and what Christians are now calling this image in Chapters 3 and 10 of my book called Truth or Tradition!Ask me for a copy.The One and Only True God and His Son Jesus Christ, who are members of the Godhead, can never be reverenced or honored using images.Throughout the Bible you cannot find one single incident where God’s people used a picture or statue of a man to try and portray the Godhead (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).Colossians 2:8-9:Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.Acts 17:29-30:Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent.
Christians may not like what they are hearing, but we cannot argue with scripture.If you reject God’s knowledge then one day when you stand before Him you will be without excuse – you chose not to know the truth.By rejecting knowledge it will also affect your children:Hosea 4:6:My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me:seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
The Bible tells how people will be in the last days.II Timothy 3:1-7:This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:from such turn away.For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
By comparing II Timothy 3:1-7 with Romans 1:20-32 you will see that they are almost identical.Which proves that since idolatry and graven images were the root cause of the problems in Romans Chapter 1, then idolatry is also the root cause of the problems we are now seeing in these last days.
Extremely important:Scripture reveals to us the root cause of the lust of homosexuality in Romans Chapter 1.Due to their idolatry scripture tells us in Romans 1:24 that “God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves”.Because the church has exchanged the glory of God for man-made images we have reinforced the root of homosexuality, and it is plaguing our Christian homes and our churches.
A homosexual person lusts for their own gender, which in many cases starts with lust for their own body – narcissism (what II Timothy 3:2 calls a lover of one’s self).Even from a very young age evil spirits can entice a person to repeat the sin(s) of their forefathers.(They are being visited with the iniquity of their forefathers, possibly several generations back.)Many different things could cause a person to fall for Satan’s temptation(s) to repeat the same sinful pattern as their ancestors.Things such as:ignorance to scripture, so-called religious décor, molestation, masturbation, pornography, etc.Temptation to sin is not only limited to people who do not claim Christianity, on the contrary, it is usually the one’s who are truly trying to follow God that can fall the hardest for Satan’s deceptions.Mainly, because many do not really know or follow God’s commandments.The reason they do not know God’s commandments is because many churches are not teaching the truth about His commandments.They are telling the congregation that none of the Old Testament laws (more precisely the commandments of Moses) apply to us today, which is a lie.If you look up the Greek (which isNewTestament) word for ‘law’ or ‘laws’ it means “nomos, nom’-os; …spec. (of Moses)”.God’s grace does not mean we are lawless.As Christians we are not without God’s law – and I Corinthians 9:21 even says this:To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law.The New Living translation reads:When I am with the Gentiles who do not have the Jewish law, I fit in with them as much as I can.In this way, I gain their confidence and bring them to Christ.But I do not discard the law of God; I obey the law of Christ.The Greek word for ‘law’ in this particular verse (I Corinthians 9:21) is both “nomos, nom’-os(of Moses) and ennomos, en’-nom-os”; … ennomos meaning… “subject to…lawful…under law”.Jesus did not come to destroy (or Greek dissolve) the law of Moses.Matthew 5:17:Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets:I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.The Greek word for ‘law’ in Matthew 5:17 is “nomos, nom’-os; …spec. (of Moses)”.The Greek word for ‘destroy’ in Matthew 5:17 is “Kataluo, kat-al-oo’-o; …dissolve… over throw… throw down”.
Many churches are not obeying or teaching the truth of God’s Word, especially His commandments – Old and New Testament.Exodus 20:3-5 and Deuteronomy 5:7-9:Thou shalt have no other gods before me.Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.John 14:21:He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. The generations who did not bow were visited with their fathers iniquity!Matthew 22:37-38:Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.This is the first and great commandment.John 14:15:If ye love me, keep my commandments.
The churches today are not obeying God’s commandments but are mixing paganism and Christianity.Because of this some churches have even begun mixing homosexuality into their church doctrine.They are bringing their evil practices into the church and adjusting their doctrines to fit their sinful lifestyles.God help us!Deuteronomy 4:13:And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.John 14:15:If ye love me, keep my commandments.John 14:21:He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.I John 2:3-5:And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected:hereby know we that we are in him.
I will end this section with the following scripture; whereby God warns His people through Moses against every sinful abomination.Leviticus 18:1-30:AND the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the Lord your God.After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do:and after the doings of the land Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do:neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein:I am the Lord your God.Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments:which if a man do, he shall live in them:I am the Lord.None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness:I am the Lord.The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover:she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.The nakedness of thy father’s wife shalt thou not uncover:it is thy father’s nakedness.The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.The nakedness of thy son’s daughter, or of thy daughter’s daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover:for their’s is thine own nakedness.The nakedness of thy father’s wife’s daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s sister:she is thy father’s sister:she is thy father’s near kinswoman.Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister:for she is thy mother’s near kinswoman.Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife:she is thine aunt.Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law:she is thy son’s wife, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother’s wife:it is thy brother’s nakedness.Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son’s daughter, or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen:it is wickedness.Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour’s wife, to defile thyself with her.And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God:I am the Lord.Thou shalt not lie with mankind, and with womankind:it is abomination.Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith:neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto:it is confusion.Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things:for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:And the land is defiled:therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:(For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, and it spued out the nations that were before you.For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein:I am the Lord your God.I Corinthians 6:9:Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.The Greek word for abusers in I Corinthians 6:9 is arsenokoites, ar-sen-ok-oy’-tace; a sodomite, abuser of [that defile] self with mankind.
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14:Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:Fear God, and keep his commandments:for this is the whole duty of man.For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.Jeremiah 23:24:Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him?saith the Lord.Do not I fill heaven and earth?saith the Lord.
The following is a brief explanation about sexual cords.A sexual cord is something that connects one person to another; sort of like an invisible rope.Scripture tells us that when two people marry they become one (this is an example of a holy cord, or a Biblical union). Genesis 2:24:Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife:and they shall be one flesh.Matthew 19:4-6:And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife:and they twain shall be one flesh.Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.Mark 10:6-9:But from the beginning of creation God made them male and female.For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife:And they twain shall be one flesh:so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.Ephesians 5:31:For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
Notice scripture says marriage is for a man and a woman, a man and his wife; proving that God does not sanctify homosexuality, or multi-partner unions – which are unholy cords or unions.Speaking expressly against homosexuality.Leviticus 18:22:Thou shalt not lie with mankind, and with womankind:it is abomination.Leviticus 20:13:If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination:they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.Also see Romans 1:24-27.Anything outside of a Biblical one man one woman marriage union is an unholy cord.
In an unholy cord or union not only do people share physical things, including sexually transmitted diseases, but they are also sharing spiritually evil things (resulting in bondage).Proverbs 5:22 says, his own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with cords of his sins.In Proverbs 5:22 the Hebrew word for ‘cords’ is “chebel, kheh’-bel, or chebel, khay’-bel; a rope (as twisted)… a noose (as of cords); fig. a company (as if tied together)… ruin… cord… destruction, line… pain… rope, snare, sorrow”.Being in deliverance ministry I have had people come to me for help telling me that they are having a problem with thoughts of suicide when they had never been troubled by this before.It was not a generational pattern of iniquity because none of their ancestors had ever attempted suicide (at least to their knowledge).When we talked further we discovered they had sexual relations with someone who had.After praying a prayer to break unholy cords they were not tormented with suicidal thoughts any longer.The same can be said for drug addiction or anything else that has a person in bondage.
Because you may be saved this does not mean you automatically forget the things or people that have been connected to your life (or still may be), and the negative emotional affect this has had on you.It is important to understand what an unnatural or unholy cord is and how it has affected your life; even if it happened to you before you were saved you can still suffer the negative emotional affects after salvation.Many times because a person is a Christian they believe that Satan cannot affect them, especially their soul.However, anytime a person, including a Christian, gives in to lust of the flesh it affects or touches their soul (which is their mind, will, and emotions).The Hebrew word for ‘soul’ in the Old Testament is “nephesh, neh’-fesh; …sense… appetite… breath… desire… greedy… heart… life… lust… mind… pleasure… will”.The Greek word for ‘soul’ in the New Testament is “psuche, psoo-khay’; …breath… heart… mind”.The Greek terms “exactly correspond respectively” to the Hebrew.God’s Holy Spirit lives in our spirit when we are saved, but when we allow sin and temptation of the flesh to affect our soul how long will God continue to dwell in our spirit?When a person cannot stop them self from sinning and is repeatedly giving in to this sin then this person, or Christian, is in bondage.It is Satan’s desire to keep Christians in bondage to their past and he is successfully doing this through unholy or unnatural ties; and through continued sinful practices and/or unclean objects of décor.Scripture tells us that we are not to be ignorant of Satan’s devices.II Corinthians 2:11:Lest Satan should get an advantage of us:for we are not ignorant of his devices.If you are a Christian and you feel you may be in bondage to sin please say the following prayer and sever (cut) all unholy cords, and allow God to deliver you from this bondage.
Important:In the blanks below you can put not only people, but things.You can put yoga, martial arts, music, drugs, pornography, masturbation, narcissism, homosexuality, bi-sexuality, orgies, abuse, rape, pedophile, attempted suicide, sadomasochism, gender change, cross dressing, adultery, fornication, sexual relations with animals (including fantasy relations, mental shape-shifting, lycanthropy, and any connection with animal spirit guides), watching movies that insinuate having sexual relations with the dead (and any connection with necromancy), unnatural relationships between family members (or any involvement with ancestral spirits/familiar spirits), incubus and succubus spirits, sexual rituals, or you can put down a mirror if used for sexual pleasure.The Bible tells us in Matthew 5:28 if we even look at someone and lust after them we have in essence had relations with them in our heart.This would even include lusting after one’s own self - narcissism!Put down anyone or anything the Lord may bring to your mind in the blanks provided in the following prayer, or use an extra sheet of paper.After saying the prayer you can just tear up the paper and throw it away.An in depth explanation of the things mentioned above and much more, including prayer, can be found in my book called “Truth or Tradition”.If you are interested ask me for a copy.
Note:An unholy or unnatural cord does not necessarily have to be a sexual relationship it can also be an emotional tie.This emotional tie can be with a person or even an animal.See my document on Shamanism for an example of an animal tie.
Please pray the following prayer to sever all unnatural and unholy ties

Prayers of deliverance from generational patterns of iniquity
