RECEIVING GENERATIONAL BLESSINGS FROM THE COURTS OF HEAVEN
(Excerpts taken from Pgs. 97-98)
When the Lord makes a promise, it almost always will take generations to accomplish it.
We cannot accomplish generational purpose without the empowerment of generational blessings.
This is why contending for generational blessings from the Courts of Heaven is so important.
Hebrews 11:13 makes a statement concerning these fathers.
These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
They had vision and purpose beyond their natural years. What God had said would require generations to fulfill. Many times we need to interpret the word we have heard from the Lord in terms of generations. If we don’t think this way, then we become disillusioned when it doesn’t happen in our life span. We think that God has failed us, or that what we thought was God wasn’t. This also causes us not to contend for the generations to come.
We mustn’t think everything will rise and fall with us. God’s plan is generational. This means we must secure generational blessings over us and our lineage.
Daniel 4:3 tells us that God’s kingdom is forever. However the dominion or enforcement of that kingdom is from generation to generation.
How great are His signs,
And how mightily His wonders!
His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And His dominion is from generation to generation.
If we are to see the full demonstration of the intentions and desires of God, we must realize generations will be involved.
There will be a handing off of the plans and purposes of God from one generation to another."
