Topic: THE ACHAN OF YOUR FAMILY LINE.
Text: Joshua 7:1, 22-24, 26; Joshua 6:17-19
Ministering: Dr. Daniel Olukoya (GO MFM Worldwide)
This is a day of very strong praying. Achan took what God said “do not take”. And the punishment was grevious on Israel. This is a very serious matter. Achan put the whole of Israel in trouble, and so Achan and his whole family and possessions were stoned to death. One Achan in a family line wiped out a whole family.
Jericho was the first city to be conquered in the Israelites line of conquest. And the instruction on Jericho was very clear: “do not take anything from Jericho. Anything they have is accursed. If you do, you will bring curse upon Israel and you trouble Israel.”
Herein is a huge mystery. A particular inanimate object brought into a household can result in a curse on a household, and can trouble a house. And the Bible remains very clear: “do not bring those things into your house”. Israel first conquered Jericho. The next city to be conquered was Ai. Ai was so small that the spies recommended just 3,000 men. But to their surprise, the 3,000 men were beaten back. Joshua cried unto God: “why this defeat?” God said “there is an accursed thing and the guilty party has to be fished out”.
The guilty man was a stumbling block to the advancement of Israel against Ai. God had said that no spoils must be taken from the camp. It is an accursed thing and all must be destroyed totally. Achan made the first mistake that all sinners make. He said “I saw”. Sin begins with desire ignited by unlawful things that we see. The Bible says “Eve saw that the tree was good”. David saw a woman washing herself and she was beautiful to look upon. Simon saw the apostles laying hands on people to receive the Holy Ghost.
So, the journey of disobedience by Achan started. He saw, he coveted, he took. He was conscious of the disobedience, but then he went ahead and did it.
There are deep mysterious factors in this matter, worthy of consideration when we are praying for our families. All trespasses may not be detected by fellow men in the course of men’s lives. If God did not tell Joshua, they would not have known where the problem was coming from. Our sins can trouble other people. Many sins can bring an evil effect, not only to the sinner but to the sinner’s family.
So sin affects more than just you. Achan was a very brilliant soldier. He was from the tribe of Judah. He was a brilliant competent soldier. Achan went to war but he did not die in the war. He escaped from the war and even took things from the war. He stole and thought God could not see. Achan the thief did not die in the battle where he stole. So he thought that all was over. He was so different from the man called Jonah who quickly repented. So, the logic of Achan was “since I did not die in the battle, then there is no more problem”.
So, he took God for granted. This is a very very serious matter and we must take note of it very well. Achan could have fasted and prayed and quickly returned what he stole, but he hid it. So the spirit of Achan is a terrible spirit. It is the mother of many horrible children, but the most important thing is that it has generational consequences.
🔥 I am praying for somebody here today: any power magnetizing problem to your family, let the power expire, in the name of Jesus.
There is something known as the Achan in the family line. He can have been there 100 years ago. He could have caused trouble and now everyone is now suffering the consequences of what he had done. There is something known as the curse of the dispossessed. Like leprosy, that curse hangs on all thieves. All curses that are issued by those who have been dispossessed (those whose children, or money or cars have been stolen from them). Those curses are acidic. They are potent. They are effective, and they are generational.
Even if the person stolen from, did not say one word, the curse remains. I feel really sorry for any robber or thief. Curses will pursue them until they are dead, and will continue after they are dead. This is a very very serious matter. You have a very serious problem on your hands if you have an Achan in your family or if you had an Achan in your family. If you buy a used car, pray on it very well, because it might have been stolen and the curse of the dispossessed will work. This is a deep spiritual secret you need to know.
There are people who are doing things now and they wonder why things are not going well with them. If you have a family member sleeping with a woman and he is not ready for marriage and then the lady gets pregnant, and she is forced to abort it, the blood of that baby will certainly cry; and that person has introduced an Achan into the family line. Or you are married and you decide to abort because you do not have enough money to take care of them, that is even worse.
The blood will be required from the couple because the one that is being terminated may even be the one that is sent to come and deliver the other children.
If somebody in the family participated in raping a virgin and spilling blood, unless atonement is made for it, those kinds of sins are generational.
Someone is given contract for a road and he pockets most of the money and submits a badly tarred road. Then accidents begin to happen and people start dying on that road, the blood of those dying on that road will cry on the head of that contractor and if he is a member of your family, he has become an Achan in the family line.
You have a family member working in the hospital, he is stealing drugs to take home without giving them to those who need the drugs, and the patients die because of that, the blood will be required from that worker in the hospital. He has become an Achan in his family line. He may not tell his family members what he has done, but he is an Achan.
Or maybe you are a contractor and you have been given money to build a hospital, but you did a substandard work and pocketed the money and people begin to die there, to every patient that dies in that substandard hospital, the blood will cry on your head and you become an Achan in your family line.
You were given money to put up a building and then the building collapses and people die, the blood of every one who dies there will be on your head and you become an Achan in your family line.
Those who allow people to die of hunger when they are in a position to help, the blood of those people will cry on their heads.
You have been given money to buy an ambulance but you go and buy the cheapest one and pocket the rest of the money, the blood of the patients who die in that vehicle will cry against you. This is a very serious matter.
There is blood crying daily on the heads of people who have responsibilities to do good things and they are not doing them. Some people have committed suicide because they are jobless, simply because the money to create that job has entered someone’s pockets, and if such people in charge are your family members, these are the Achans in your family. This is a very very serious matter.
You call yourself a mechanic or an electrician and people are getting things from you and they are getting electrocuted and all kinds of things are happening to them, the blood of all those people will cry on you and you are an Achan. All those people who jilt people all around, or marry and divorce them, will have blood on their hands. All the ferries that have capsized because someone embezzled the money to buy a proper ferry will be held responsible.
You can remember an uncle or even your own father who married your mother in poverty and they struggled together to make it, and now your father is comfortable and now starts dating younger women, and the stress kills your poor mother who has struggled with him, blood will be required from him. If that your father did not finish experiencing the punishment before he dies, it will be transferred.
I need to explain this to you so you know what we are talking about. There are kinds of things people do and they will think it has no effect. They do, and the blood will be required.
If you are a lawyer or a judge, and you are ready to let the guilty go free and send a innocent man to jail, you will not go free. The punishment will not end with you. It is a generational curse. Maybe now you will have an understanding of what I am saying. And that is why I am praying one more time:
🔥 By the power in the blood of Jesus, any Achan in your family line shall expire, in the name of Jesus.
I could go on and on but there is no time.
WHAT HAPPENS THEN, WHEN THERE IS AN ACHAN IN YOUR FAMILY LINE?
– Incurable diseases.
– Constant loss.
– Gradual dispossession.
– Constant health problems that swallow money.
– Children getting addicted to drugs.
– Children becoming robbers and thieves.
– Empty certificates.
– Mark of hatred.
– Possessed children.
– Being brought from grace to grass.
– Business destruction.
All these are some of the effects when there is an Achan in the family line who has blown an evil siren that is now affecting everybody. It was only Achan that stole. The wife did not follow him to the war front. The children did not follow him to the war front. I doubt whether he even told them that he stole those garments. But now, he had roped everybody in. I want to pray one prayer.
🔥 Any power assigned to rope you in, into evil punishment, I command the power to expire, in the name of Jesus. (a sevenfold amen).
It is a tragedy but at the same time it is a strange deep truth that an unborn generation may inherit the trouble created by another generation. Any time that they are born at the maternity ward, there is an evil power to pass the evil baton to them.
🔥 I am praying for somebody here, that any baton of suffering, passed to you by ancestral powers, I command the baton to catch fire, in the name of Jesus.
Today, you need to first surrender your life to Jesus Christ. It is very compulsory that you do that. Then you are qualified to participate in the prayers we are going to start praying very soon. And those prayers are very effective. When you start praying those prayers, every evil stamp placed on your forehead, shall vanish. All the go-slow spirits operating shall disappear. And every evil hand preventing you from going into your harvest, shall terminate this morning, in the name of Jesus.
1. Any evil hand, dragging my family to the ground, dry up! in the name of Jesus
2. Every yoke, troubling my family, break! in the name of Jesus.
3. Every evil pattern in my family line, die! in the name of Jesus.
1. Stronghold of darkness, in my family line, what are you waiting for? Die! in the name of Jesus.
2. Generational problems, in my family, die! in the name of Jesus.
3. Every yoke, hanging on my family tree, break! in the name of Jesus.
4. By the power of the Rock of Ages, battles in my family, die! in the name of Jesus.
5. Ancestral vultures, troubling my family line, break, in the name of Jesus.
6. Where is the Lord God of Elijah? Arise, do a new thing in my family, in the name of Jesus.
7. O God arise, have mercy on my family, in the name of Jesus.
8. Every gathering of ancient demons, against my family tree, scatter! in the name of Jesus.
9. My family line, hear the Word of the Lord, receive deliverance! in the name of Jesus.
God bless you🙏
