“She Can’t Love You Like I Can” by Dr. Jené Walker

Genesis 30:1-8 (NIV) 1 “When Rachel saw that she was not bearing Jacob any children, she became jealous of her sister. So she said to Jacob, “Give me children, or I’ll die!” 2 Jacob became angry with her and said, “Am I in the place of God, who has kept you from having children?” 3 Then she said, “Here is Bilhah, my servant. Sleep with her so that she can bear children for me and I too can build a family through her.” 4 So she gave him her servant Bilhah as a wife. Jacob slept with her, 5 and she became pregnant and bore him a son. 6 Then Rachel said, “God has vindicated me; he has listened to my plea and given me a son.” Because of this she named him Dan. 7 Rachel’s servant Bilhah conceived again and bore Jacob a second son. 8 Then Rachel said, “I have had a great struggle with my sister, and I have won.”

SHE BECAME JEALOUS OF HER SISTER (verse 1)!
When we look at our sister’s situation sometimes, that old ugly, evil, vicious spirit of jealousy will rise up out of seemingly nowhere. But the origin of it is our flesh and we have to cut it off at the root because jealousy can fester in something even uglier. But even deeper than ourselves, the enemy has established a world system (Jesus called Satan the prince of this world because this is his domain). In the system, the media, movies, and public figures do worldly things to push the enemy’s agenda – to include pitting us against each other. How? Depicting certain sizes and complexions. Creating shows in which cheating with someone’s husband is not just ok but promoted. We allow all these things to go in our spirit and it causes dissension and even strife between us. The bottom line is that we have to know our worth. We have to realize that we are worth far more than rubies. Period.

These are some lessons to consider and confessions to speak over our lives to bind the spirit of jealousy, competition, covetousness, and vanity in the name of Yeshua!

LESSON ONE: COVET NOT YOUR SISTER’S BLESSINGS
1. I am in the world but I am not of the world; I renounce the spirit of jealousy and quarreling and conflict against my sisters in the name of Yeshua (1 Corinthians 3:3).
2. I have Holy Ghost power on the inside of me to cast down thoughts about other women and cast out spirits of jealousy and envy and covetousness. I will cast my cares, my flesh, my desires, and insecurities on Yeshua.
3. I know that a man can’t give me what only God Himself can give. Only God can fill my void. Only Jehovah can make me whole. Only Jehovah can satisfy my soul, my thirst, and my desires. I depend on Jehovah.
4. I will not go into my marriage thinking my husband can fix what’s broken in me. I will not try to make my husband give me things to compete with another woman. I receive my healing from Yeshua (Jesus) now.

LESSON TWO: DO NOT TAKE MATTERS INTO YOUR OWN HANDS.
5. I will test my spirit by the Spirit of God and check the motives of my own heart. Why do I want the things I’m vying for and dying to have? My heart is fixed in Jesus’s name.
6. I will not get involved in another counterfeit relationship; I will not rush God in connecting me with my husband; I will not take matters into my own hands trying to manipulate a man to marry me.
7. I will not allow my body to be used as a punching bag for sex or for fists; I am worth far more than rubies.

LESSON THREE: STOP COMPETING WITH YOUR SISTER.
8. I rebuke the competitive spirit that causes me to try to make something happen for myself that isn’t God’s plan for me at this time. I will wait on His set and appointed (Kairos) time.
9. I rebuke the competitive spirit that makes me say ugly things about my sister; makes me judge my sister; and makes me criticize my sister.
10. I rebuke the competitive spirit that makes me try to take my sister’s man or sleep with her husband.

Do you know your worth? You and your sisters are worth far more than rubies. You are not her competition and she isn’t yours. We are all so worthy to our Lord and Savior Yeshua! Know your worth! Order your tee now! Click Here:

“You Don’t Deserve Emotional Abuse!” by Dr. Jené Walker

Emotional abuse has gotten categorized as the lesser evil in the abuse family. It is STILL evil and Jehovah didn’t create you to have to deal with it. It is a slow and destructive enemy calculated offense. The devil wants to slowly take you out by wearing your worth down to nothing. Emotional abuse looks like this: She criticizes everything you do. It could be subtle or blatant. He even criticizes how you look – your hair isn’t right, your weight isn’t right, something about your best dish isn’t right. Or, he will compliment other women with characteristics you may not possess. He will refrain from affection or lovemaking (wives). He won’t touch you or even look at you like he admires you any more. She will give you extended periods of the silent treatment or he will ignore you when you talk to him. Emotional abuse is toxic and destructive and you don’t deserve it. Know your worth. You are worth far more than rubies. Men you are kings of the most high King. Know your worth.

“Stop Fussing Over Grandma’s Dishes” by Dr. Jené Walker

Stop talking about the kids in the family and start interceding for them every morning in prayer at 6:00am. Stop talking about the infirmities and sicknesses your great grandmother, grandmother, and mother had and start walking in righteousness so you can have to power to destroy the spirit of infirmity in each generation. Take a look at adultery in the family. Why is adultery a sin that everyone in the family line commits? Stop the generational sin. Cut it off at the root. Where is the family prayer line? We get on everyone else’s prayer line. Who is going to start one for the family – not only when something bad happens, but the family will pray on a regular basis together. Is everybody broke and struggling in the family? Break the spirit of poverty through prayer and spiritual warfare and financial training and information. We do not have to accept the curses in our families. Why do you think the devil wreaks so much havoc in families? To keep us separated and at odds with each other that’s why! Even if you aren’t released to connect with a specific family member every day, aren’t you released to pray for them every day until yokes are destroyed? How about this? How many preachers are in your family? Do they even speak to each other? Pray together? Strategize for warfare together? It’s time kingdom families. Who has been hurt by incest, molestation, or rape in the family? It’s time for those loved ones to get loosed from that mess! The devil can’t keep them oppressed! Which sexually transmitted diseases run rampant, passed down in the family that no one wants to talk about to get free? Come on somebody. We are taking back the blessings and breaking the curses from our ancestors. Say it everyday. You know what they are.

Do a spiritual assessment of your family. You be the one to get the plan started. We get together once a year for fun and foolery but don’t we want more?  How can we be ok with some of the family thriving and the rest barely surviving? Your whole family is royalty. Speak it over them daily. Stop fighting over grandma’s dishes and start saving for land and territory for the family to build an estate for the family in grandma’s name!

Blog Interview with Jené Walker (JW) by Crystal Flanagan (CF) of Fruitful Concepts
The decision to give one’s life to Christ is one that is exhilarating, joyful and full of hope with the desire to embrace and serve God on a higher dimension. However, with the acceptance of the Christian faith comes many challenges and attacks from the Enemy not only within the natural but spiritual realm as well. In her new book, Dr. Jené Elaine Walker discusses how readers can better equip themselves against the enemy’s attacks in, Meditations for a Surrendered Life: Winning Daily Spiritual Battles against the Enemy.

CF: At what point did you realize and accept God’s assignment to write your new book, Meditations for a Surrendered Life: Winning Daily Spiritual Battles against the Enemy?
JW: Both the realization and the acceptance of God’s assignment to write my new book manifested gradually. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, I have been ministering through social media for at least the last three years and became a licensed minister as of January of 2016. As a result, God’s people have been blessed by the Word God has given me. God used so many of my “friends” in social media to plant the seed about my writing the book. One Facebook friend suggested that I would write a book, a manual of sorts, for ministers. Others weren’t as specific as they encouraged me saying, “I can’t wait to read your book” or “I wish I could go back and review your posts because they really bless me.” Then finally, approximately two years ago, a woman with whom I’m now really close called me after 10:00 pm. I answered, somewhat perplexed about why she was calling so late. When I answered, she said, “I just want to be obedient to the Holy Spirit’s leading.” She said, “I believe you have some books God is going to birth in you.” Well, then I was fully alert and she had my attention. She continued, “God gave me a vision of you. You were seated at a table and there was a line wrapped around a huge building. People were waiting for you to autograph their book.” When she said that, I leaped out of my bed and immediately began praising God.

Although several others had planted seeds before her about my book, it was that prophetic word from this lady that caused me to accept and actually complete God’s assignment to write this book. Through total surrender of my life to God and walking in obedience to His instructions, I was able to hear God more clearly when He would speak to me. Through total surrender to God, I was able to relinquish any preconceived fleshly thoughts I had about the book and how the book was to be organized. God later revealed that for my first book, I would compile my writings and quotes and organize them into themes or categories of meditations that will help His people during their moment by moment struggles each day.

CF: You discuss the importance of being equipped to fight the spiritual battle? How important is it for Christians to be in communion with Christ on a daily basis?
JW: Chapter 3 is entitled, “Communion with God.” Communion in this chapter refers to “our” daily communication with Him, our desire for Him to be with us, and our obedience to His promptings through the Holy Spirit. When you are in communion with God, you are able to hear the Holy Spirit when He gives you instructions because you read God’s Word daily.” Reading God’s Word daily builds spiritual capacity for God to speak to us through His Word. I have received the answers to many of my questions about life, love, relationships, and next steps for my life through God’s Word. I have especially learned about spiritual warfare and engaging the Enemy through His Word, which is my defensive weapon. God speaks to me through His Word; He teaches me how to fight using His Word.

In addition to the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, another very important piece of armor for me and I think all believers is prayer in the spirit without ceasing – for yourself and others. Prayer is another means for us to communicate with God. Being still and listening for God’s response after prayer is another opportunity for God to speak to us. I need to hear from God about how He wants me to handle every situation in my life. I’ve already done life my way. Now, I have to hear from God before I move.

I had to stay in God’s Word and pray and fast to be delivered from the spirit of rejection. The spirit was strong and on me since childhood. It caused me to have low self-worth. That is spiritual warfare. That is a spiritual battle. In order to be equipped for battle and to win daily spiritual battles, believers must employ all the spiritual armor of God. Every piece of armor that Paul identifies in Ephesians chapter 6, requires us to be in daily moment-by-moment communion with God.

CF: Your book stresses the importance of living a “surrendered” life. How vital is it for Christians to surrender to God?
JW: When I think of my story and ultimately who I am, I can sum it up in a few words, “I am totally surrendered to God – finally.” Before I clearly began to hear from God, my life was so noisy and cluttered. I tried doing everything on my own and in my own strength. I tried to manage my son, my job, my money, my relationships, and my life my way. It wasn’t that I wasn’t in relationship with God. I’ve always been an avid Bible reader, Sunday School and Bible study attendee, and one who fasts regularly. But what God revealed to me is we can do all those things “religiously” and still may not have submitted our entire lives to Him. He told me to surrender. (Please understand that surrendering is a daily process or at least it is for me.) And the things of the world to which I held on began to fall off as I surrendered them to God. I remember when God told me that I was still holding on to worldly things. I asked God, “Well what else do I need to release? I’ve given up ungodly relationships and so many other things. He clearly said to me, “You’ve given up so many things? My Word says for you to present your body as a living sacrifice, Holy and acceptable unto Me. That is your reasonable sacrifice.” Jesus showed me that although I had physically given up some things, that my heart was still going astray. Surrendering isn’t just the act of giving up things while yet still longing for those things or being disgruntled because you gave them up. Surrendering is also the transformation of the heart. Yield your desires to still hold on to the word to God.

I was doing warfare in my house one evening and Holy Spirit said, “Pick up that book off the floor.” I looked down and it was a book entitled Pigs in the Parlor. I opened it up to a page that explained the most common symptoms of indwelling demons. God immediately takes my eyes to “Religious Error.” Hammond explains that involvement to any degree in religious error can open the door for demons. As I scratched my head, The Holy Spirit says read on. Hammond further explained that objects and literature from sources of religious error have been known to attract demons in houses. Well Hammond was specifically referencing, false religions, cults, the occult, and false doctrine; however, the Holy Spirit was leading me to my bookshelf. I went in my study and saw an extensive collection of African American fiction that is borderline erotica. Jesus said to me, “Totally surrender.” Needless to say, my son and I (whom I had exposed to this filth) took every book off the shelf.

What does it profit me to gain the whole world and lose my soul? Ask yourself that question. How long will Christians halt and limp between two opinions. If God is God, serve God totally. But if the devil is god in your life, serve him totally. God hates a lukewarm church so we must die to flesh and totally surrender ourselves to Him. I had to go “all in.”

CF: At what point, in your opinion, and spiritual discernment, do you believe that Christians either lose or win against the Enemy’s attacks?  
JW: The point at which we walk in the flesh and war after the flesh is the point at which we lose spiritual battles. Paul clearly states in Ephesians chapter 6 that we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We focus so much on “people” and situations that we fail to recognize that there is an invisible battle. The devil and demonic powers are at work in the world all day. Demons laugh at flesh fights among humans; principalities smile at rallies for racial justice; rulers of darkness think that “movements” for rights are hilarious. But at the name of Jesus, powers of the air tremble; they get anxious and uncomfortable.

God’s Word has power. The Holy Spirit empowers us to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the devil but we lose if we don’t use our authority. Stop focusing on the person being used by the devil and fight to win. To fight with your flesh when God has told us to use spiritual weapons, is to fight a losing battle. Pray, fast, study and use the Word of God in your defense, have faith, walk in righteousness, keep the peace of God, wear the helmet of salvation and you can’t lose.

CF: How has your faith played an impact in your personal and professional life?
JW: Chapter 4 of my book is entitled “Exercise Your Faith.” As believers, we live each day believing in God’s Word. We don’t have to see the promise; we just know by faith that the promise will be fulfilled. God has done so much in my life time for me, and my son. If I just look back over my life, my faith should increase far beyond mustard seed faith. What I have learned about the impact faith has in my life is the more I believe, the more God will exceed my expectations for me and my son. As I totally surrendered my life to God, my faith increased and my response to warfare improved. My focus has become the heavenly kingdom and not this earthly kingdom. I have set my mind on things above. So, because of my faith, my ministry as a mother, my book, my ministry of preaching and teaching, my ministry with my students at school, and my ministry in church have all become kingdom focused and under one umbrella – kingdom work.

CF: For an unbeliever that may not know about your ministry and is curious about your book, what is the first thing that you would tell them?
JW: The devil isn’t loyal to anyone. The difference between an attack from the devil on a believer and a non-believer is that believers have the victory through Christ Jesus and non-believers lose two times – once now and once and for all eternally. Our Enemy, Satan, has no power or authority over us as believers and his attacks come frequently, but your soul must be saved to win this spiritual war. If you don’t come to Christ now, the kind of suffering that your lord, the devil has you going through right now, will intensify and be eternal. You can see the judgment of God right now throughout the earth – typhoons, contaminated water, floods, fires and the like – but the final judgments will be unbearable.

There is no way to the Father except by Christ. In a world full of darkness, Jesus Christ is our only light. Through Christ, you are protected. Through Christ, you will have eternal life after death. Through Christ, although you will suffer on earth for the kingdom, you will be victorious. Through Jesus Christ, you will inherit the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and a peace that surpasses all understanding. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, you are able to employ spiritual weapons to combat his attacks. Read my book as believers and non-believers alike share in the same kinds of sufferings. The Holy Spirit will use the meditations in this book to change your life. You’ve tried everything else, won’t you let Jesus, the Messiah, our King, the Saviour be your last “try?”

CF: Can you provide more insight on your ministry?
JW: The purpose of the ministry God gave me is to help believers to win daily spiritual battles and to draw unbelievers to Christ and to equip all God’s people for battle through preaching, teaching, writing, and speaking.

CF: What do you hope readers will gain after reading your book?
JW: Meditations for a Surrendered Life: Winning Daily Spiritual Battles against the Enemy provides daily, thought-provoking writings and sayings to help the reader to navigate a world infested with sin and an Enemy on a never-ending prowl for victims. Refer to the book any time to encourage you in your faith and to provide you with instructions for living a surrendered life and for winning daily spiritual battles.

CF: Will there be any additional projects in the near future?
JW: I’m continuously accepting engagements to preach, to facilitate women’s conferences, and to teach at youth conferences. In addition, God has given me the outline for my second book already about the power of positive relationships amongst women. The Holy Spirit has given me a strong presence in social media, including my blog. The Holy Spirit gives me something to say daily. I post focus scriptures almost daily as the Holy Spirit leads me.

“Game Recognizes Game” by Dr. Jené Walker

This is not the season to be deceived. Too much is at stake. The enemy is ramping up his deception game and using even the people of God in his conspiracy against us and the kingdom. He does not want you to give birth this season. But since he can’t abort your purpose, he is sending decoys. Be discerning in this season. Do not be distracted by distractions. The game hasn’t changed. In the same way you recognized game when you were in the world, use your spirit to discern people who are being used to throw you off your spiritual game. We can’t afford to be distracted in this season. If their “yes” isn’t really “yes;” if they don’t show up when they’re supposed to; if you’re struggling to figure them out; if they talk a good game but there’s no follow through, how many more signs do we need? Run! Run away from distractions toward your destiny. We don’t have time for it. We have too much kingdom business this season. Every person sent to you isn’t for you. Be vigilant and be obedient and take off the blinders. Jené Elaine Walker 

“Prayers and Spiritual Warfare for Cleveland” Dr. Jené Walker

John 8:44 (NIV) “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.”

Remember that we are dealing with a demonic spiritual realm of influence. We can continue to downplay the seriousness and power of the devil or we can begin to use the power of Holy Spirit within us as believers of Yeshua, the Messiah. Pray like never before. Engage the enemy like never before. Kingdom generals in Cleveland, we are praying and warring with you. My condolences to the Godwin family. 🙏🏾 Jené Elaine Walker

“Breaking Generational Sins and Closing Spiritual Portals” by Dr. Jené Walker

Spiritual Warfare Bootcamp 5

Luke 10:19 “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”

Breaking Generational Sins and Closing Spiritual Portals

Song “This Means War”: Click Here

I couldn’t find a passage of scripture that states ‘if your great grandmother commits adultery, then your grandmother will commit adultery, and your mother, and you, and your children, and your children’s children.’ But if we’re honest in our spiritual assessment of our family’s lineage, just like in the lineage of our some of our biblical brothers and sisters, we can draw a spiritual conclusion. We often struggle with and repeat the same sins generationally. Reflect on the sins of your family, whether it is sexual immorality, acting in anger and having bad tempers, abandonment, lying, bad stewardship, manipulation, deceiving or perfection. There are sins that are also crimes according to the law such as pedophilia, rape, molestation, theft, etc. Unfortunately, these too are sins that we may see repeated in a family line from generation to generation. We have been letting ourselves off easy stating, “Oh I’m dealing with a spiritual curse” or in the natural realm “It’s because of a mental issue” when in actuality, haven’t some of us just been giving in to the desires of our flesh and lust and committing the same sins our family has committed for generations?

What Holy Spirit showed me is this – these sins aren’t necessarily generational “curses” but in some cases, they are generational “sins” that we commit at will. Yes, our sins can affect our bloodline and we can pass things down through our blood in the birth canal such as addictions and diseases. We tend to identify those things passed down through the birth canal as “curses.” We can even have spirits that we are plagued with that open up the door to attack and enter the child in our womb and spirits can be passed down such as sexual immorality – lust, homosexuality, etc. or even rejection. However, in the case of generational sin we are spiritually repeating the same sin that we saw our parents and their parents and their parents’ parents commit.

One biblical example of generational sin – in a simplistic explanation – is in Abraham’s lineage. In Genesis Chapter 20:2, Abraham lied to the king and said that his wife Sarah was his sister. Now even though Abraham later cleaned up his lie by stating that Sarah truly was his “half” sister, he gave that information to the king with the intent to deceive the king in order to save himself. He had a fear of authority. In Genesis 26:6, Isaac, Abraham’s son, lied to the king and said his wife Rebekah was his sister to save himself. We see the generational sin of lying and deception out of fear of authority. Then, Isaac’s son Jacob deceives Isaac by pretending to be the oldest son Esau in order to get his father’s blessing. Jacob’s motive for lying may have been different from Abraham and Isaac but do you see the pattern of the same sin? Are lying and deception issues in your family? Is there a fear of authority that causes you to cower down, stutter, stammer, or even lie and deceive out of fear? No matter how subtle the generational sin may be, spiritually reflect so that we can strategize for closing those portals for the fear of authority.

Now this is important. What we know about sin is that sins of commission and sins of omission open the doors or spiritual portals for evil spirits to enter into us. So when we continue to commit generational sins, we open the door for a strongman or ruling spirits and other demons to enter in. Luke says in Luke 22:3-4, “Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus.” How was Satan able to enter Judas? Because Judas had a sinful heart of greed, the portal was open.

In Acts 5:3, Luke narrated these events, “Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep part of the price of the land?” This couple withheld money from the church and lied about it. Because of the sin of covetousness in their hearts, the strongman of covetousness and other demons such as lying, and greed entered into them and ultimately caused their deaths.

So if we take the sin of “lust” lightly, please understand that the excessive thought of sex with someone or desiring someone’s body or their sex in the “privacy of our own minds” opens the door for the strongman to come into us. According to the research of Frank and Ida Mae Hammond, after the strongman establishes himself as ruler in us, he is integral in the role of other demons coming in.

So now, the sin of lust in the heart and mind have given birth to full-fledge adultery. The strong man of “sexual immorality” has taken residence in the “house” of your husband or wife from a sin that the world “measures” as minor. Can the sins that we commit originate from the prompting of Satan? Of course they can; ask Eve! However, we must let the power of Holy Spirit operate in our lives to help us to take the escape that God has already provided for us when temptation comes. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 10:13 “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”

God has made a way of escape for us before we partner with Satan to sin. We just have to choose to take the escape. Jesus died so that we would have the power to resist the devil through the Holy Spirit. We can’t dare say that the devil has too much power. Luke narrates what Jesus says in Luke 10:19 “I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.” We have power to overcome generational sin.

Frank and Ida Mae Hammond’s research also suggests that when we are vulnerable, demons are able to enter in. If we’re fearful of something happening to us such as divorce or our spouse leaving us, that makes us vulnerable and we can open ourselves up to the strongman of worry, nervousness, and even grief. We have to be vigilant and spiritually discerning about what is happening to us and concerning us in the spiritual ream. Then, we can uproot these demons – or even better, cut them off before they take root.

One of the most important spiritual tactics for closing up spiritual portals is to first, repent. You have to want to come out of that sin just as much as or even more than you wanted to commit the sin. Secondly, you have to actually come out of sin. Third, ask for forgiveness and turn in the opposite direction of your sin. Fourth, when you come out, the strongman and demons in you must come out through deliverance. Fifth, when you are delivered from these demons, immediately allow Holy Spirit to rule and take complete control of your life. If you don’t, you are at a serious risk of allowing the strongman to come back with seven other demons worse than him. Then you will be worse off than you were before your deliverance. (See Matthew 12:44-45.) Of course, you will continue with your regular strategic warfare plan (See your first email installment) of worshipping and speaking in tongues, praying and speaking confessions, and studying and meditating on the Word of God.

Supporting Scriptures
Most of the scriptures about curses have to do with God administering punishment for the sin of our forefathers. However, in Ezekiel, God said that He wasn’t going to do that anymore. Each person would die for his own sin. Then, Jesus redeemed us from the curse of the law.

Exodus 20:5 “You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,”
Numbers 14:18 ‘The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.’
Romans 5:19 ‘For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.’
Ezekiel 18:1-4 “The word of the Lord came to me: “What do you people mean by quoting this proverb about the land of Israel: ‘The parents eat sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge’? As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, you will no longer quote this proverb in Israel. For everyone belongs to me, the parent as well as the child—both alike belong to me. The one who sins is the one who will die.”
Galatians 3:13 “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”
