Our theme for our conferences has been and will continue to be Generational Blessings.
God wants us to be blessings in our generation and leave blessings to future generations.
- Generational Blessings come from the Father God and through family.
- The Family of God is how God wants to transform the world.
o “But He answered and said to them, “My mother and My brothers are these who hear the word of God and do it.” Luke8:21NKJV
- The Bible is the story of the family of God.
Jesus said “In the volume of the Book it is written of Me.” Because of His sacrifice and resurrection we have access to be part of God’s family.
Galatians 2:20 says, ” I am crucified with Christ, nevertheless I live, yet not I but Christ lives in me and the life that I now live in the flesh I live by the faith the of the son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.”
Because Christ lives in me I have all the blessings of Abraham to be a blessing now and leave a heritage.
- Generational Blessings do not come just for one but for present and future generations. Consider each person in the Bible and the impact they had.
In order to have blessing we need to have our minds renewed through the knowledge of God.
2 Peter 1:2-4
2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,
3 as His divine powerhas given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,
4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
“Knowledge” in the Greek from original text is “Epignosis”
The root word “Epi” means superimposition (of time, place, order, etc.) as a relation of distribution, i.e., Over, upon, etc.; of rest at, on, etc., of direction towards, upon, etc.;
Meaning clear and exact knowledge. It expresses a more thorough participation in the object of knowledge on the part of the knowing subject.
In 2 Peter 1:2,3 it refers to knowledge which very powerfully influences the form of religious life, a knowledge laying claim to personal sympathy and exerting an influence upon the person. It affects the religious blessings possessed by the subject and determines the manifestation of the religious life.
Simply put: The Knowledge of God is God’s knowledge and presence in our lives, super imposed, imprinted and working deeply by the Holy Spirit through faith that changes the way we think and influences the way express our lives. It changes our nature into His divine nature.
Superimpose– 1.To lay or place (something) on or over something else 2. To add a distinct feature, element, or quality
This knowledge is not something you can work to obtain, it comes from the Lord and is a part of the His Covenant with us through faith.
