I was reading Psalm 109 this morning and verses 14 and 15 stop me in my tracks with this thought; “Your sin’s can fall upon your children, so be careful what you do or get into and try not to sin.” And because I was reading from the King James Study Bible it gave me two scriptures that made it clear. Exodus 20:5 and Deuteronomy 7:6-9; I love how Deuteronomy brings it all together. It simply is telling me that, “God keeps and shows mercy to those and their generation/children who love Him and keep His commandment.”
Ok, so you keep sining and living an unclean life but remember the only reason God isn’t done with you or hasn’t given up on you is because someone in your family, your friend(s) or someone somewhere hasn’t stop praying for you. Or it could be even because of your forefathers before you that had a great relationship with the Lord; and simply because the Lord LOVES YOU! So don’t let your sins fall on your children and their children, get it together before it’s to late! Jesus can save you!
Psalms 109: 14-15 “Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the Lord, And let not the sin of his mother be blotted out. Let them be continually before the Lord, That He may cut off the memory of them from the earth.”
Exodus 20:5 “…… For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me.”
Deuteronomy 7:6-9 “For you are a holy people to the Lord your God; the Lord your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth. The Lord did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any other people, for you were the least of all peoples; but because the Lord loves you, and because He would keep the oath which He swore to your fathers, the Lord has brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you from the house of bondage, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. “Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.”
