Bring It On-Line: Generational Curses

What is a fundamentalist? How do you break generational curses? My husband cheated on me and I am having trouble forgiving and trusting him, how do you get rid of anger and regain trust again? When the rapture happens, what happens to those ... ... Read Transcript


Kristi: WELL, WE'RE

BACK AND IT IS TIME TO

"BRING IT ON" WITH YOUR

E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

MAR JADE SAYS, "WHAT IS A

FUNDAMENTALIST?"

Pat: IT GOES BACK TO

THE 1920s WHEN A GUY NAMED

GRETCHEN MAYSHON, A

PROFESSOR, I BELIEVE, AT

PRINCETON, WAS DESCRIBING

WHAT THEY WERE, AND THIS IS

SOMEBODY WHO ADHERES TO THE

FUNDAMENTALS OF THE FAITH.

AND AS OPPOSED TO THE

LIBERALS, THOSE WHO DEPARTED

FROM THE FAITH AND BEGAN TO

PLAY GAMES WITH THE BIBLE.

SO THE FUNDAMENTALISTS, BY

THAT DEFINITION -- BUT IT

HAS BECOME A TERM OF

APROBRIUM, SOMEBODY

DESCRIBED AS A

FUNDAMENTALIST MEANS THEY'RE

HARD-NOSED AND ALL OF THOSE

OTHER NASTY TERMS.

BUT THAT'S WHERE IT STARTED,

THOSE WHO ADHERE TO THE

FUNDAMENTALS OF THE

CHRISTIAN FAITH.

Kristi: BRUCE SAYS, "I

WOULD LIKE TO KNOW YOUR TAKE

ON HOW TO EFFECTIVELY BREAK

THE GENERATIONAL CURSES,

THAT MY CHILDREN AND

GRANDCHILDREN WILL BE

RECIPIENTS OF GOD'S

BLESSING."

Pat: YOU'VE GOT TO KNOW

THERE IS A GENERATIONAL

CURSE.

I DON'T KNOW HOW YOU KNOW

IT, BUT THERE HAS TO BE

SOMEWHERE SOMEBODY

PRACTICING WITCHCRAFT,

SOMEBODY INVOLVED IN THE

OCCULT, SOMEBODY WHO

COMMITTED MURDER.

THERE ARE A LOT OF NASTY

THINGS THAT HAPPENED WITH

GRANDPARENTS AND GREAT

GRANDPARENTS AND IT GOES

DOWN THE LINE.

THE WAY YOU PRAY AGAINST IT

IS YOU BIND THE SPIRIT THAT

CAUSED IT AND YOU REBUKE

IT.

AND YOU SAY, WE RENOUNCE

THIS GENERATIONAL CURSE THAT

IS UPON US.

WE SPECIFICALLY ASK GOD'S

FORGIVENESS FOR THE SIN THAT

WAS PERPETRATED BY THE GUY

WHO WAS INVOLVED IN THE

OCCULT OR WHATEVER.

I DON'T KNOW THAT YOU NEED A

GENERATIONAL CURSE -- I

DON'T KNOW HOW YOU GOT IT.

Kristi: IVY WRITES IN

AND AS, "I'VE BEEN TRYING TO

FORGIVE MY HUSBAND FOR

CHEATING ON ME.

WE HAVE GONE TO COUNSELLING,

BUT I JUST CAN'T SEEM TO

FORGIVE, NOR CAN I TRUST.

GOD SAYS TO FORGIVE, BUT IT

HAS BEEN SO HARD TO DO.

I WANT TO FORGIVE SO WE CAN

GET ON WITH OUR LIVES?"

Pat: SO WHAT DO YOU

THINK?

WELL, THAT'S A GOOD

QUESTION.

I THINK FORGIVENESS CAN BE

ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT

THINGS IN THE WHOLE WIDE

WORLD TO DO, AND ESPECIALLY

WHEN IT COMES TO A SPOUSE,

BECAUSE THAT'S ONE OF THE

ULTIMATE BETRAYALS.

Pat: HERE IS THE

SECRET -- AND HERE IS THE

SECRET: STOP TALKING ABOUT

THE CHEATING.

HE CHEATED ON YOU.

WELL, HE'S A MAN.

WHAT YOU DO IS BEGIN TO

FOCUS ON WHY YOU MARRIED HIM

IN THE FIRST PLACE, ON WHAT

HE DOES GOOD.

DOES HE PROVIDE A HOME FOR

YOU TO LIVE IN?

DOES HE PROVIDE FOOD FOR YOU

TO EAT?

DOES HE PROVIDE CLOTHES FOR

YOU TO WEAR?

IS HE NICE TO THE CHILDREN?

DO YOU HAVE A HAPPY FAMILY?

DOES HE TAKE THE KIDS TO

SPORTING EVENTS?

DOES HE GO OUT AND WATCH

THEIR LITTLE LEAGUE GAMES?

DOES HE SHARE WITH YOU STUFF

THAT IS GOING ON?

IS HE HANDSOME?

WHAT IS IT?

START FOCUSING ON THOSE

THINGS AND ESSENTIALLY FALL

IN LOVE WITH HIM ALL OVER

AGAIN.

I RECOMMEND THAT YOU REACH

OUT AND TOUCH HIM.

TOUCH HIS FACE.

TOUCH HIS FACE.

HOLD HIS HAND.

LOOK INTO HIS EYES.

TALK TO HIM.

BUT YOU'RE PRAYING, OH, GOD,

KEEP ME NOT TO HATE HIM FOR

WHAT HE DID WHEN HE WAS WITH

THAT STRIPPER IN THAT HOTEL

ROOM 10 YEARS AGO, AND I'LL

NEVER FORGIVE HIM KIND OF

THING, AND PLEASE HELP ME.

SO WHAT ARE YOU FOCUSING

ON?

YOU'RE FOCUSING ON THE THING

THAT MAKES YOU MAD.

STOP THAT AND START FOCUSING

ON THE GOOD STUFF.

HE MUST HAVE SOMETHING GOOD

OR YOU WOULDN'T HAVE MARRIED

HIM.

THINK ABOUT THOSE THINGS.

AND GIVE HIM HONOR INSTEAD

OF TRYING TO WORRY ABOUT

IT.

BUT RECOGNIZE ALSO, LIKE IT

OR NOT, MALES HAVE A

TENDENCY TO WANDER A LITTLE

BIT.

WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IS MAKE

A HOME SO WONDERFUL HE

DOESN'T WANT TO WANDER.

THINK OF THE TEMPTATIONS

THAT ARE OUT THERE.

THE INTERNET IS FILLED WITH

PORNOGRAPHY.

THE MAGAZINES ARE FILLED

WITH SALACIOUS PICTURES OF

WOMEN.

ANYWHERE YOU TURN AROUND,

THERE IS SOME SOLICITATION

TO THE SENSES TO ENTICE A

MAN.

AND SO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO

IS SAY MY HUSBAND WAS

CAPTURED.

AND I WANT TO GET HIM FREE.

BUT REACH OUT AND THINK OF

THE GOOD STUFF.

AND THEN BEGIN TO THANK GOD

THAT YOU HAVE A MARRIAGE

THAT IS TOGETHER, AND THAT,

YOU KNOW, YOU LIVE IN

AMERICA AND GOOD THINGS ARE

HAPPENING.

NEXT QUESTION.

Kristi: GUS RIGHTS IN

AND SAYS, "WHEN THE RAPTURE

HAPPENS AND PEOPLE ARE LEFT,

WILL THEY HAVE A CHANCE OF

GOING TO HEAVEN?"

Pat: FIRST OF ALL, YOUR

ESKOTOLOGY IS IN HE ERROR.

AIRPLANES ARE GOING TO CRASH

BECAUSE THE PILOT GOT CAUGHT

UP IN HEAVEN, AND THE TRAINS

ARE GOING OFF THE TRACKS,

AND PEOPLE ARE GOING TO

SMASH SMOO CAR INTO CARS

AND IT IS GOING TO BE

CHAOS -- THAT'S NOT GOING TO

HAPPEN.

WHEN JESUS COMES BACK TO

EARTH AND THE SAINTS ARE

WITH HIM, THOSE ARE WITH HIM

WILL BE CAUGHT UP IN THE

AIR.

HE IS COMING DOWN TO EARTH

TO TAKE CHARGE OF THINGS.

HE IS NOT GOING TO ALLOW IT

TO BE IN CHAOS.

AND THAT WILL BE THE END.

AND THEN THERE WILL BE A

JUDGMENT OF THOSE WHO ARE

HERE.

YOU SAY, WILL THERE BE

ANYMORE ATTEMPTS?

I DON'T THINK SO.

I THINK PEOPLE HAVE THEIR

CHANCES RIGHT NOW.

THAT'S WHAT IS GOING TO

HAPPEN, THE RAPTURE.

I THINK PEOPLE ARE MISTAKING

THIS IDEA THERE IS GOING TO

BE A SECRET CATCHING AWAY,

AND THEN THERE IS A GOING TO

BE A TRIBULATION AND ALL OF

THIS STUFF.

THAT'S NOT WHAT THE BIBLE

TEACHES.

Kristi: PAULA SAYS,

"RECENTLY A FELLOW CHRISTIAN

CONFIDED IN ME THAT SHE

TALKS TO SPIRITS TO TESTER

THEM.

TEST THEM.

SHE RECENTLY PRAYED FOR ME

AND TURNED AWAY AND TALKED

TO SPIRITS.

QUITE FRANKLY, I FIND HER

ACTIONS SCARY.

WHERE IN THE BIBLE DOES IT

SAY TO TALK TO SPIRITS?"

Pat: IT DOESN'T.

IN A DEMON-POSSESSED MAN,

THEY GO INTO SOME PIGS, BUT

WE'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO TALK

TO DEMONS.

YOU TEST THE SPIRITS, BUT

YOU DON'T DO IT BY TALKING

TO THEM.

ANYBODY WHO THINKS THEY'RE

GOING TO TALK TO SPIRITS,

BELIEVE ME, THE SPIRITS ARE

GOING TO GET THE BEST OF

YOU.

DON'T TRY TO DO IT.

IT'S NOT BIBLICAL, IN MY

OPINION.

ALTHOUGH THERE ARE INSTANCES

WHERE DEMONS TALKED, A

DONKEY TALKED -- PEOPLE

TALK, BUT THAT'S NOT IT.
