(Psalm 32:5; Proverbs 10: 29 Psalm 51:5; Exodus 34:7)
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, in sin my mother conceived me (Psalm 51:5). When we read the genealogy of YAHSHUA we see King David’s great-grandmother was the prostitute Rahab. If he knew that, we do not know. But we know that he acknowledged in Psalm 51 to have been born from a sinful ancestor. What is really the sin of iniquity and why it is so hard to deal with it? When the Lord descended in the cloud to stand with Moses on the Mount Sinai, He proclaimed His name by saying, The Lord! The Lord!, a God merciful and gracious slow to anger, and abundant in loving-kindness and truth, keeping mercy and loving-kindness for thousand, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but Who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children, to the third and fourth generation (Exodus 34:5-7). The sin of iniquity is rooted deeply in our veins. It is the thing with curses manifested in weakness of personality, and weakness of the body. We carry the curses of our ancestors to the third and fourth generation.
