Jesus reveals demonic worship in lawyer’s ancestry
F struggled to grow in her relationship with God despite earnestly trying her best. Here is her testimony of how Jesus released her from generational curses as a result of ancestral demonic worship. Today, she experiences greater intimacy and spiritual freedom with God. Praise God.
The first time I heard about generational sins, I thought it was related to Buddhist teachings about “bad karma” from my ancestors.
As I learned more about what the Bible says about generational sins at my church discipleship group, I became convinced that they could have impacted me and hindered my spiritual growth. Not only did I observe a strong generational stronghold of sibling rivalry amongst my family and relatives, I found it difficult to concentrate when reading the Bible and to grow in my spiritual gifts. Moreover, I felt deep personal grudges against a couple of female spiritual leaders at church over some comments they had made.
Before renewal prayer, I prayed for God to reveal what my ancestors were like and their backgrounds.
Amazingly, as I prayed and fasted, more and more revelations came up.
As I spoke to my parents about their own ancestry, I found out that my grandparents and great-grandparents were devout Buddhists and Taoists. Not only did they bow down and worship before buddhas, alters and temples, my maternal grandma would habitually invite spirits into her body using certain objects and accessories. In these Taoist / Buddhist occult practices in China, it is rather common to be assigned a spirit resembling a character from Chinese history to look after and “protect” the family.
Apparently, my grandma would summon the spirit of “la ja” (哪吒) to come into her.
Whenever she manifested the spirit of “la ja”, she would do unbelievable things that she normally wasn’t able to, such as chant poems and perform kungfu.
There was a huge reliance placed on cooperating with these “spiritual forces” so that we could ask for good health, blessings and safety for the family. My grandma was also part of a guan yin worship group (觀音道) in the Chiu Chow province of China.
My father grew up in China where his town practised “old mother sect” (老母教).
This sect worshipped the big belly buddha, amongst other idols. The sect’s disciples practised planchette writing (扶乩), where they invite spirits to be channelled through their hands to write down the future using a pan and a sandbox. Their leaders also carry out rituals to anoint people’s heads (點頭). My dad recalled visiting and worshipping at the sect’s temple with his entire family.
Furthermore, I learnt my great-grandfather worked in an opium parlour for a long time.
There used to be a lot of arguments between his mother and his wife. Shockingly, both of them passed away within a day of each other. His son (my grandfather) also died quite young in his 50’s. My grandma believed there was a lot of “bad karma” from her father-in-law’s long association with the opium house. So she donated a lot of money to the temple to “redeem” the family.
My parents, having been hugely influenced by their family culture, engaged in all these occult rituals and practices.
I am glad that God revealed my family heritage to me and how demonic some of their practices have been. Rather than being ashamed, I gladly confessed the sins to God and cut off spiritual ties to such an occult and demonic ancestry. I also confessed the generational sin of sibling rivalries and asked Jesus to remove those curses from me as well as the family line after me.
Another breakthrough involved inner vows I had made in the past.
Growing up, I had always been taught that I need to be hardworking, to rely on myself and my efforts, and to be strong and independent. Little did I know that by doing so, I was hindering my relationship with Father God in Heaven.
Our lives are gifts from God and not “built” by our own effort. We must always rely on God. I am so glad that I was able to repent of all the ungodly inner vows I made in the past and to command the spirits of self-reliance and performance to leave my life.
My prayers counsellors also helped me realise that I have a lot of suppressed emotions towards my mother.
That came as a surprise to me. I always thought my relationship with my mother was healthy and great! When my prayers counsellors asked me to articulate the ways I felt hurt and un-accepted when I was a child, I felt a strong resistance inside me. At the back of my mind, I thought that saying anything bad about my parents was a sign of disobedience.
I had to force myself to quiet down and really process my emotions. Slowly, I was able to honestly articulate my long bottled-up childhood emotions as if I was speaking directly to my mother.
The exercise was much harder than I thought, but I felt liberated afterwards.
It was good to peel off thick layers of masks that I have worn for a long time. Being able to express my emotions felt great. My prayer counsellors also prayed for a change of heart for me – from a heart of stone to a heart of flesh.
I experienced this shortly afterwards at church, because I went up to one of the female spiritual leaders whom I used to dislike and gave her a big hug. I was surprised to find that I was no longer offended and was glad that the relationship was restored.
At the beginning of the renewal prayer, I was asked what it would be like for me to visit God’s throne room. At first, I could only envision a sterile, white room with Jesus facing me. It wasn’t inviting or intimate.
After the prayer, I saw that Jesus was strolling around a rainbow filled garden with me.
It was so vibrant and full of life and colours. In that vision, I was a little child holding Jesus’ hands. He was taking me around to see His beautiful garden with His amazing creations. There was a rainfall of golden coloured glitter showering upon us as we walked together. One of my prayer counsellors also received a very similar vision for me. I felt really loved.
Finally, I am more connected spiritually with my Heavenly Father. My new relationship with God has begun and grows more intimate day by day.
