“And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.” Mark 15:21

Simon of Cyrene was minding his own business, but he was forced to carry the cross of Jesus Christ. In so doing, he implicated his generations, Alexander and Rufus. His was a positive implication; he is the man who carried the Messiah’s cross. But what did your forefathers carry?

Whatever we are dealing with that our forefathers planted, we are going to knock it out. But because it’s been there for generations, it’s a process. Sometimes total deliverance is not a one-day affair, it is a process.

The last fast you participated in knocked something out, and fasting again will knock something else out. It is unbiblical to think is that one prophet will pour oil on you and you will be fine forever. Only physical growth is automatic, spiritual growth requires work!

Sometimes altars will make sure you don’t get what you deserve. They will fight against you and make sure you suffer.

Often, the wordly people understand the operations of altars more than God’s people. We must take time to learn the protocols of the realm of the Spirit so that we can walk in our God-given victory.

Prayer: Lord, help me to confront the long-standing altars in my background and walk in divine victory.
