TOPIC: Dealing With the Ghost of the Past
(Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 29 November 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Peter 4:3-6
MEMORY VERSE: “For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.” – Galatians 6:8
Human life exists in three phases: the past, the present and the future. Most times, the past affects the present and perhaps, the future. There is a past life, and there is a present life. Our Memory Verse and Fire Scripture talk about our past actions as they relate to the present. For the farmer, there is time to sow (past) and time to reap (present). Job 4:8 and proverbs 22:8 confirm that it is what you sow in the past that you reap in the present. That is, the past determines the present. It also holds true that it is what you sow in the present that you will reap in the future. The important lesson is that every one of us is a spiritual farmer.
There is a power that specialises in linking the past to the present or the power that investigates the past life of people in order to limit the present and the future. The power is simply called the “ghost of the past”.
There are four categories of spiritual farmers:
(i) Those who sowed good spiritual seeds. E.g Abraham
(ii) Those who sowed bad spiritual seeds and later asked for forgiveness and God forgave. E.g David
(iii) Those who sowed bad seeds and were never forgiven. E.g King Saul
(iv) Those who sowed bad seeds. They were forgiven but refused to forgive themselves. E.g Cain before he killed his brother.
The last two categories can be victims of the spirit of the ghost of the past. Their past activities do attract the attention of the ghost of the past. King Saul was asked to kill Agag, but he disobeyed God. Later Saul’s generation gave birth to Jair and Jair to Modecai, in the third generation. It also happened from king Agag’s generation to Hammedatha and later Hamman. As a result of the disobedience of Saul, when the third generation of Agag and the third generation of Saul (that is, Hamman and Modecai) met, there was war. The ghost of the past was in operation. Hamman hated Modecai with perfect hatred, and he plotted to wipe away the Jews. But, thank God for His divine intervention. Today, the ease with which we use other people’s children as “sales” girls, young ladies busy sleeping with married men, destroying people because you want to get to the top, cheating other people, stealing people’s properties, engaging in examination malpractices etc, are activities that could lead to bondage in the future. May be somebody is bitter with you now; think of your activities in the past. If guilty, ask for forgiveness and make efforts to restitute. Then, you will receive the power to deal with the ghost of the past assigned to hunt your present life and future.
THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE TODAY IS THE PRODUCT OF YOUR PAST.
No matter how ugly your past was, the blood of Jesus in an abundant measure shall flow over it and purify it and you shall be delivered.
1. Every evil seed, sown by my ancestors that is now affecting my life, be roasted by fire, in the name of Jesus.
2. Every ghost of the past that is hunting me to torment my life, the Lord has forgiven me, die, in the name of Jesus.
3. Anything I did in the past that will make satan harvest my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
4. I cancel the effect of every evil done against my life that is now affecting me, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every dead situation in my life as a result of my past life, receive the life of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
6. Powers assigned to use my past to destroy my present and my future, die, in the name of Jesus.
7. My Father, restore my life to Your will, in the name of Jesus.
