The Power Of Repentance
God sees us as trees. He sees your ancestors - the root. He sees your present position - the trunk with its limbs. He sees your future - the branches with fruits.
God knows where you are coming from and where you are going. He knows the origins of your soul and its content.
There comes a time when you must cut off the root and stop its growth. I realize that you love your children and you don't want them to straggle the way you have. In your zealousness you strive to protect them and that protection turns into a tyrant-type of control. There are times in your life when you know that the evil root of your ancestors becomes active. You become powerless when it kicks. Then, in your love and your suffering, you turn your attention to your family, wishing that they would not have to go through the same trials as you have. You cannot tell your children the truth. You are ashamed to reveal the inner secrets of your heart. Therefore you try to control them. Children resent that you control them because they love independence and freedom of expression just as you do. It is hard for them to understand the reasoning behind your actions.
God sees us as trees. He sees your ancestors - the root. He sees your present position - the trunk with its limbs. He sees your future - the branches with fruits. God knows where you are coming from and where you are going. He knows the origins of your soul and its content. He knows your strengths and your weaknesses and He cannot violate your WILL. Your will is the pure part of God Himself in all of us and this will, must always face any test.
God does not know what is in your powerhouse, the will. He CAN KNOW but chooses not to because this would break the intimate covenant He made with you. Abraham was tested until the very end. All the prophets were tested as well. Look throughout the entire Bible and you will find that all great men and women of God faced testing in the power of their will.
We live in the 21st Century. This means that since the birth of Jesus two thousand years comes to a close. What happened before then? What about all that came to us throughout thousands of years? Of course, you don't know your ancestors' way of life. You don't know which line is yours. You don't know who your great-great-great-great-great-forefather was. Therefore, you might say, "How then can I repent for the sins of my forefathers? I don't know their sins." The answer is simple. If you commit sin, then the sin you commit does not start in the family line of your neighbor across the street. You commit the same sins that your forefathers committed. You are just following the pattern of your forefathers who themselves were repeating their forefathers' sins and so on...
Some people are very proud of their ancestral roots. Often they find in their early years that they have some strange powers. These particular strange powers make them feel very special. Later on in life they present themselves as those endowed with special powers. Ask a psychic, "How did you get to be a psychic?" He will say, "Well, I was born with it." This is a typical example of someone being born with ancestral roots that come directly from witchcraft or occultism practices.

[Excerpt] You also avenge your parent's sinfulness by allowing the vengeance AXE of God to fall upon your sinful roots. Simply pray, "Lord, have mercy on my parents and upon the generations that preceded them." When you say it with deep sorrow the axe and sword will fall on the wicked roots of your ancestors [End of excerpt].
You will be changed, just as I was completely changed in less than half hour. Ever since that fateful day (when the old man died more than 20 years ago now) I keep on flying high above those low and disgusting strongholds I left behind and buried.
