temple must be destroyed. Every clean and holy temple shall stand however (1 Corinthians 3:16-18). Repentance does not mean a complete victory yet. Complete victory comes when an overcomer yields his being to the Lion of Judah and surrenders control to Him. When Jesus hung on the tree, He was the Lamb of God (John 1:29). By rising again He conquered death. He was then given the title of Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5). If you are born again and filled with the Spirit, then you are a temple of the Lion of Judah. "But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Messiah Jesus from dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His "Ruach," His Spirit who indwells you" (Romans 8:11). Repentance is the first and most important step on the Highway of Holiness of which Isaiah, the prophet, spoke (Isaiah 35:8). It is the first giant step in the joyous adventure of victorious living. It will continue until the complete course of inner cleansing has come to its beautiful completion. A complete surrender to God's holy ways makes one a true holy temple of God, no longer subjected to sin or even temptation. The flesh is crucified and the old Adam lost its hold. *** CHAPTER 9 SINS OF THE FOREFATHERS YOUR OWN FIG TREE "...Nor practice divination or soothsaying" (Leviticus 19:26). We do not know what our fathers practiced and do not want to accuse them of something they have not done. Therefore, really to know what our forefathers got into, we must thoroughly examine our predisposition, inclinations, tendencies and strong attractions. The bible tells us to examine these areas of our life. If you have already decided to be honest with yourself and others, then you will have no problem examining

yourself in the light of God's truth and Word. Let the Holy Spirit lead you in this task. May He help you in finding out all that which occupies your soul. Let Him expose what is deeply rooted in your innermost being. In the Middle-Ages there were many different teachings that grew from fear. For example, the nations hated the Jewish people, persecuted them and constantly banished them from the countries of their dispersion. Since the pagans were deep into witchcraft and occultism, they preoccupied themselves with casting spells and tormenting the Jews. The Jewish people in turn tried to defend themselves by producing all kinds of sayings, amulets and talismans to nullify the curses of their enemies. The Talmud (the book of Jewish wisdom, culture and folklore) includes instructions on warding off the evil spells. The Bible clearly states not to follow in the ways of the Pagans. Why? It is because their roots are "soaked up" in occultism and witchcraft. The Lord said, "YOU SHALL NOT ALLOW A SORCERESS (WITCH) TO LIVE" (Exodus 22:18). Anyone who penetrated the ranks of the Jewish people and practiced these abominations, had to die. The witch of En-Dor was one of them (1 Samuel 28). King Saul himself, however, already exposed himself to the spirit of witchcraft through his rebellion. For the scripture says, rebellion is as the sin of divination, (witchcraft) and insubordination is as iniquity and IDOLATRY. (1 Samuel 15:23) We do not know what happened to the witch, but we do know what happened to Saul and his innocent son Jonathan. Notice that the son was also punished for the sin of his father. There had to be a nation without evil roots to set a standard for the rest of the world. God needed a nation pure and holy, which could then introduce the Savior Messiah to the world. In Numbers 14:11-12 we read, "And the Lord said to Moses, 'How long will this people spurn Me? And how long will they not believe in Me, despite all the signs which I have performed in their midst? I will smite them with pestilence and dispossess them, and I will make you into A NATION GREATER AND MIGHTIER THAN THEY.'" Here we see why God would destroy a nation and try to birth another nation through Moses. You see that the rebellious acts of their fathers

SHOOV ULTIMATE LIBERATION OF THE SOUL

would then become strongholds in their children. Their children then would repeat the rebellious acts of their fathers. Thus, the root of sin would continue. This verse shows that God wearied of struggling with this nation. Someone said that God has not chosen the easiest nation on earth to deal with. Actually, He has chosen the hardest so the maximum of His grace, the maximum of His righteousness may be imparted. An easy nation would accept the commandments of God without any problem, however what comes easy leaves easy. Once a stiff-necked people accepts the yoke of God's mitzvoth (commandments) then these commandments will never depart from them. Therefore, stiffnakedness can be a benefit. Such people who cling to the Lord and marry their God have a stronger covenant. They have a commitment that will not bend to any outside pressures and compromise. The characteristics of the Jewish people are obvious. We are a noncompromising people. No wonder the nations of the world have hated us and still hate us until this very day. Glory be to God, we have a land, boundaries and a God to follow in time of trouble. In the earlier mentioned passage we read that Moses interceded with God (Num. 14:18,19) he reminds the Lord of His character, "The Lord is slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression, but He will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and forth generation. Pardon, I pray, the iniquity of this people according to the greatness of Thy loving kindness, just as Thou also hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now." Because of the intercession of Moses, God did not destroy His people. However, they did not possess the Promised Land but died in the desert. A new generation entered into the Promised Land. Had they repented, the old generation would have entered as well. The forty years of wandering in the desert was the result of their unrepentant hearts. Yes, God did not punish His people immedi-

ately because of the intercession of Moses. However, if a person does not repent God has no choice but to allow punishment to fall. You and I have an intercessor, Jesus. The Intercessor is there to keep providing for us an on-going flow of God's grace while patiently waiting for us until we repent. God wanted to create a righteous generation from Moses himself as He did with Noah. In Genesis 6 we read that the evil giants were there before the flood, and AFTER the flood. This means that God must not have cut off the giants completely from the land. Why? God allows evil around as a warning to the righteous and through it He tests their faithfulness. A righteous and holy generation will always triumph over evil. By being victorious they prove to God who they are, where they are coming from, who their father is and what their roots are. We prove that we are the crowncreation. We are the offspring of righteousness, of God Himself. Intercession for us here on earth goes on both in heaven and on earth. Because of this intercession, we do not witness destruction as happened to Sodom and Gomorrah, for example. Although more of God's judgment is clear today than ever before, we do not see those plagues that visited Egypt before Israel left for the Promised Land. God has awakened in us the understanding of intercessory prayer. It is a very necessary ministry and because of the intercession of His saints, He defers many punishments. However, God's goal is not to keep intercession alive, but that we all would repent, not only for our sins, but also for the sins of our forefathers. Then the root, the trunk, and the branches would become clean, righteous and holy. This is the power of repentance. As a result, the next generation will have the privilege of enjoying a righteous heritage upon which to stand and to lead a victorious life.

est in family trees. Read the genealogies of all the servants of God, both in the Old and the New Testament. Why would God have such interest in genealogies? Many people, when they read the Bible, skip the genealogies and go on to something more interesting. To God, genealogies are most important. He looks upon you as the son of this one or the son of that one. As the roots are, so the tree will be. Even if the roots are sick and the tree is sick, repentance cuts through the sickness and brings forth health. Why had the line of David been chosen? Was David not a sinner? And wasn't his son Solomon even a greater sinner? What was so special about the house of David? DAVID WALKED IN REPENTANCE! He knew God through brokenness and contriteness of heart and spirit (Psalms 51:17); "For I confess my iniquity, I AM FULL OF ANXIETY BECAUSE OF MY SIN." (Psalms 38:18). These are the words of David. The Psalms are full of such expressions. Yosef (Joseph) and Miriam (Mary) were both from the line of King David. Jesus, the Savior of the world, therefore comes from the house of David according to the flesh. When Jesus picked His disciples He knew who they were and who their fathers were. Consider Simon Peter, the son of Jonah, James and John, the sons of Zebedee (John 21:15 and Luke 5:10). We read in John 1:47,48 what Jesus (Jesus) says regarding Nathanael: "...Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile! ... When you were UNDER THE FIG TREE I SAW YOU." Jesus KNEW Nathanael and He saw his family tree. You may question this explanation and you are free to do so, but I am of the opinion that Nathanael was not under a natural fig tree, otherwise, why did he say, "...Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel" (John 1:49). Why was the fact of being seen under a tree such a great revelation to him? No. Jesus saw his lineage, his roots, and his present state. This is why He said, "An Israelite in whom there is no guile." The fig tree could have therefore been the ancestral family tree of Nathanael. Jesus was very careful in choosing His disciples. He knew their strengths and their weaknesses. He knew what to expect from them, therefore He treated each of them differently, giving each different responsibilities.
