Galatians 4 28-31: "Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free."
SIN IS HEREDITARY FROM OUR FOREFATHERS.
The problems, tensions and confusions besetting the entire world emanate from the failure of mankind to comply with the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible says that a woman should marry only one husband and vice versa, but a majority of people in the entire world have objected to this divine injunction. It is also said that, neither a man nor a woman should commit fornication and adultery, but you do not appear to heed these instructions. The Bible has also advised us not to kill, tell lies, and indulge in the preparations of juju, concoctions, etc., but to be humble, patient and peaceful, but nobody wants to comply with these instructions.
Can you realise the gravity of the punishment, which has been meted out to mankind as repercussion for not keeping these instructions of God? All problems, difficulties, wars, famine, economic recession, unemployment which beset the entire world are because of being disobedient and resistant to the divine will and the injunctions of God. God has informed us that Isaac was the son of Abraham and Sarah, and the son of promise. But Ishmael the son of Hagar, the Egyptian, was not the son of promise. Who is the freeborn and who is the son of bondage? Abraham had two prominent children. He had Ishmael and Isaac, and the latter had to submit more to the instructions of God because he was a child of promise. In fact, Isaac was not born of the flesh and blood, but of the spirit, and so, was more submissive to the parents than the other son.
You are now privileged to know the difference between the child born of the flesh and blood and the one born of spirit. A child born of flesh and blood is the one, born through the sexual intimacy of the father and mother, which during union the parental tendencies pass through the blood to form the child. The spirit of fornication and adultery, anger, segregation and even sicknesses such as gonorrhoea, fits, syphilis, etc., also pass from both parents into the child, and that is why it is said, "Blood is thicker than water." It is through this medium that the Bible says that the iniquities of the parents are visited on the children. It is this blood of theft, fornication, murder, anger, falsehood and other vices which consist of what is known as the flesh and
blood which indeed are causing confusion and tension all over the world. When the scripture said that you were sharpened in iniquities and born in sins, these constitute the sinfulness of the parents of the child, who are infested or contaminated with theft, fornication, murder, false, anger, treachery, envy, impatience, deceit through whose blood the child is born into the world. Some of you used to ignorantly say that the children of nowadays are so bad, and I am asking you to tell Me what is responsible for that? The parents are responsible because the sins of the parents are visited on the children. However, a child born of the spirit is the promise child, born without the sexual union between the husband and wife. God Himself can make this possible through the efficacy of the words of promise.
Brethren, there was a certain German national who was hospitalised sometime ago because he was anaemic. Consequently, the doctor in charge prescribed that some blood was needed to administer blood transfusion for him. When he was informed about this, he emphatically declared that unless the blood is extracted from his fellow German national, the blood transfusion should not be administered. That is the trouble that has engulfed the whole world, racial discrimination. We have various textures of blood because, as our faces are different so also are the blood groups on our bodies. Flesh is the carnal body constitution, and you are advised not to get involved in vices such as anger, murder, backbiting, fornication, adultery and the rest of the vices, because these tendencies pass through the blood into others or even into the children yet unborn. The blood through which a child is born into the world is the true replica of you, and your child will have the tendencies of behaving like you and committing the same vices, which you had been indulging in. Therefore, when you are told not to commit sins, this instruction is given for your own benefit, and not for the benefit of God Himself, because the sins you commit shall bring more problems to you and would further aggravate the tensions and the problems in the world.
THE CHILD DOES WHAT THE PARENTS ARE DOING
You should never forget that whatever you are, that is what your child shall also be. Why do you have to blame your child when he is displaying your tendencies obtained through your blood? That is why it is often said that blood is thicker than water, because if you are a thief, murderer, malicious person, a fornicator, etc., your child certainly will inherit all these characteristics from you through blood and the blood cannot be extracted at all. That is the first mistake you have committed. Once you have the sexual union with your wife or husband and you bring forth a child, and you are aware that you are an ill-mannered person or malicious person, do you think that your child will be different from you? Any attempt to exonerate yourself from or dodge the sins your child indulges in is illusive. These are your true tendencies he
inherited through blood during birth, and these tendencies are exhibited irrespective of age.
THE ONE SIN THAT CAUSE STANDSTILL IN THE WORLD
If you want your children to be well meaning citizens of your country, you must cultivate the habits of refraining from all manners of sins, and this is for your own benefit and good reputation. Right now, there is one particular sin, which is waging war throughout the whole world, and it is fighting all the world inhabitants to a standstill, and that particular sin is fornication. Everybody knows that it is bad, yet everybody is enjoying it. It is a truism that your forefathers married as many as five, ten, or twenty wives and despite these numerous wives, they were still not satisfied, they still had to flirt with other women, the numerous children they have notwithstanding. In view of the foregoing, this adulterous blood is transferred into their children during birth. Most of the diseases afflicting humanity today such as syphilis, gonorrhoea, leprosy, fits, hypertension, etc., are transmitted from one person to another during sexual union, between man and woman. Most of the vices such as murder, malice, anger, hatred, drunkenness are also transmitted to others through blood during fornication or adultery. That is why when a white man impregnates a black woman or a woman who is not from his race, he will not own that child even though he will do everything humanly possible to support that woman and her child to take care of themselves.
If a white man marries a black woman and they bear a child, what do you call that child? Is he a white or black person? That child is mulatto. He is neither a white man nor a black person, and eventually an outcast. His behaviour will be abnormal in all respect. Sometimes he would have the tendency to behave as a white person and in another period, he would equally behave as a black man. Why is it so? If a white man marries a white woman, what will be the complexion of that child? Similarly, if a black man marries a black woman, what will be the complexion of the body of the child born? If a black man stays in a white man's country, for a number of years, even as long as thirty years, he will still behave as a black man displaying all the tendencies of a black man, his social interactions amongst the whites notwithstanding. He will still shamelessly display those crude tendencies of uncivilisation. It is a surprising thing to notice that the blacks in European countries and in the United States are still behaving in the same way as the blacks in Africa. They display bad behaviour although they learn or work as doctors or professors and are professionals in different fields of human endeavours, but their many years of stay in these places have never made them change their moral values and concepts because blood is thicker than water. If you are crafty or indulge in the preparation of juju, concoctions, fornication,
or murder, you are not just learning how to do it, you inherited it right from the blood, because your fathers and forefathers actively indulged in these vices and the tendencies cannot be eradicated just immediately. These are the things which most of the black people do not know, but the whites understand a little bit of this recondite wisdom, but not fully; in the sense that they (the whites) are still indulging in vices such as drinking of alcoholic drinks, snuffing and smoking which is affecting or destroying their constitution. If it could be possible for all and sundry to come to the wisdom of this truth, and they refrain from all manners of vices and we hold ourselves together with the surest hope that in the nearest future all will be well. That is why Paul had made a statement, which is recorded in 1 Corinthian 7: 37-40: "Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well. So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better. The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband is dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord. But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God." Why did Paul make this statement?
It is because if you marry a child of God, it stands to reason that the blood that will be transferred to your children will be pure with fear, love, peace and other attributes and qualities of God in the character and the behaviour of the person. Why it is difficult for a man born of the flesh and blood to practise the words of God is that he has been a spoiled and contaminated man right from his nature. Our Lord Jesus Christ declared that we are saved by sheer grace and mercy of God. Therefore, there is no other way than to accept this concept and to tolerate and practise the love of one another. There lies our salvation. What type of preaching are you going to deliver to a people who have been so spoiled or contaminated in sins through parental blood, which means that the old man is still dwelling in you.
1 Corinthians 5: 1-5"It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ. To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
