TYPES OF SPIRITUAL FOUNDATION.........And how God repairs them!



A man’s foundation is very important to who the person becomes in life.  This is because you cannot build on a faulty foundation and have anything. As a believer, your spiritual foundation is vital to your life.  The reason is the question asked in Psalm 11:3 which says "If the foundation be destroyed, what can the righteous do"?

Many things can combine to make a person's foundation faulty.  If a person or his parents served other gods, such a person has a faulty foundation. If a person's father did some wicked works against humanity, like burying his enemies alive, sacrificing human being to idols etc, such a person has a faulty foundation.

Some men were so strong in their times that they sacrificed human lives to acquire power from the devil, some sacrificed pregnant women, other sacrificed virgins.  Some wicked men buried their enemies alive, captured strangers on the way and killed them to appease their gods. 

Wicked acts bring curses on a family.  If a person is killed without a cause and the person pronounces a curse on his captors, know for sure that a curse will remain active until God intervenes to deliver the family.  So the foundation of a person covers the life of his parents and fore-fathers and whether they serve the Lord or other gods.

Many people are suffering barrenness today because of curses placed on their fore-fathers that is still operating.  Many people are poor today because of a curse or evil covenant which their fathers entered with the devil, that is still working.

The Importance of your Foundation 

The importance of foundation to a person's life cannot be ignored. Every Christian should know his foundation, and understand what happened before and after his/her birth. Foundation is responsible for many good and bad things that are happening to children of God today.  

The foundation of a person determines how far, and how fast he/she will go in life. If the foundation of a person has problems, the destiny of that person will also have issues.  You may be born again, but what is your foundation saying?  

Are you born again, and yet a spirit is claiming that you're dedicated to him?, there is a foundational problem in place. Are you born again, and every night you sit with people you don't know in a meeting you don't even know what they are discussing, there is a problem.  Are you born again and still you see yourself swimming in big ocean in your dream most nights, there is a problem. 

Types of Foundation

In a circular world, structural and Soil Engineers are invited to examine the earth and soil condition of a property where a high rise building would be erected.

It is the same for a believer, who wants to succeed in the faith and in ministry.  You will have to look closely into your family line, ask questions from your parents, especially your mother about yourself.  Find out what happened when you were born, and after.  You should also know the God your parents served.  You should not assume any of these to be right, without finding out.

If you know who you are, the events before and after your birth, then you can initiate some targeted foundational deliverance prayer to cry to God for help, to correct and heal your foundation.

Good foundation
The bible says a good man leaves an inheritance for his children. If a good man leaves a good inheritance, a wicked man would also leave an evil heritage for his children.  Here comes the problem beloved.  People inherit houses, land and cars from their parents, without asking for the debts their parents may be owing, both spiritually and physically.  If you inherit land and houses, be ready to pay the debts accumulated over the years also.

There are good foundations and so, it is the duty of believers to ask salient questions to identify and know the foundation that produced them.  To assume that your foundation is strong and well established without knowing the live your parents lived or how you were born is pure ignorance.
To have a good foundation before the Lord is to have men and women amongst your forefathers who served the Lord with zeal and did a lot of exploits in His name, for which a book of remembrance was opened in heaven, for a memorial unto their children and children’s children.
King David in the bible loved the Lord so much that he decided to build a house for God.  David considered it an error for him to be living in a good house, while the Ark of the Lord of Host was sleeping in a tent.  Remember the Ark of God carries the presence of God anywhere it is carried to, so the moment David concluded in his heart to build a house for the Lord, that same night, God spoke to Nathan, David’s seer to go to King David and give him a message.  

That God saw his desire to build a house for Him, but God considered the many battles David had fought and the lives he killed in battle and decidedthe house should be build by David's son instead of King David.  The good works of King David is in everlasting before the Lord, that's a good foundation for his children. 

It was the good works of David that made God give his son, King Solomon 40 years of peace as a King in Israel.

Polluted Foundation/Destinies
Today, we have children whose destinies have been polluted by their parents, especially their mothers.  I mentioned mothers because they spend more time with the children than their fathers.  Nowadays, we also have many single mothers raising their children alone.  They owe the children a duty to raise up in the ways of the Lord, but what happens when the woman herself do not know the Lord?

This is the reason why some children are wrongly exposed to the negative life by their parents.  Single parents, whether a man or woman should be discrete in training the children, so the children are not wrongly exposed to adult live too early in life.  Careless single mothers can pollute their children by exposing to adult life through a variety of what is regarded as fun today.

Children should never see the nakedness of their parents, that is terrible pollution.  Some single mother are careless with their sons, as though their sons are their husband, that is wickedness.  It can expose the boy negatively.

Weak Foundation - A weak and faulty foundation is not worthy of carrying any building.  The foundation of a bungalow cannot be used to erect a four-storey building, the house will collapse.  As it is with the foundation, so it is with people.  So if you are dreaming of doing exploits for the Lord, or you are dreaming of being the CEO of a successful national company, it will never work, if your foundation is weak or faulty.  Make sure your foundation is strong, otherwise repair it through prayers.  

The implication is that if you get to the top, riding on a faulty foundation, it is the same faulty foundation that will rise against you in the future and pull the person down. 

Wicked foundations

We have seen cases where the blood of virgins are crying against people because their fore-fathers sacrificed virgins to idols for money or power and generations after their evil works, the blood of such virgins are still crying for vengeance over the children of the men that sacrificed them.

When your parents and fore-fathers entered into covenants with the devil and covenanted you and your children, God saw it, but God will do nothing until someone repents from that family and cry to God for mercy and deliverance.  That's the only time God will intervene and set captives in that family free.

So, to assume that because you gave your heart to Jesus, the evil done by your parents and fore-father are washed off is to be ignorant.  God is a covenant-keeping God, He says He visits the iniquity of parents on their children (See Exodus 20:5).  He will only intervene when someone cries to Him for mercy.

This means that there are children of God whose foundation are destroyed and they are not aware of it. Many people are hindered in the spirit because of the sins of their forefathers, and blood is speaking against them for vengeance because of the wicked foundation of their fore-fathers before the Lord.

Signs of Faulty Foundation

Without a strong foundation, you cannot withstand the storms that various seasons will bring.  You will find it difficult to resist temptation, financial, and emotional storms.   If the foundation issue is not addressed, the cracks will come and the cracks could lead to a collapse.  

Here are signs that you have spiritual foundation problems in your life:
1. The continual struggle to live holy.
2. Failure at the edge of a breakthrough
3. The barrenness of children and helpers
4. Lack of Destiny Helpers
5. Rejection and spirit of Hatred operating in life.
6. Lack of favour and closed heaven syndrome
7. A negative/nasty attitude
8. Hearing of strange voices, and other remote control manipulations
9. Secret sin, addictions like watching porno and masturbation
10. Lust of the heart. Lusting after your colleagues, your neighbour's wife
11. Can't get along with people; always in conflict with someone

How God Repairs faulty Foundation

It is the Lord that repairs a faulty foundation, our duty is to pray well-targeted prayers from our heart.  We must repent of our own sins, as well as the sins of our forefathers.  God wants us to succeed and prosper, but many people have faulty foundations that will limit and hinder their progress in life.  Such foundations are the results are the result of evil dedication and evil inheritance, which over the years becomes a bondage that rises against the works of their hands, limiting their success.

If we look at the example of Jacob in the bible, the fateful day he received deliverance from his faulty foundation, he put away his wives and children and was alone in a place to pray and seek the face of God.  He was determined to get deliverance from God, so he prayed fervently until God sent His angel to go and see what is happening to Jacob.  

It was in the heat of petition and prayer that God sent His angel to go and see what was happening to Jacob. Because Jacob was in the Spirit, he quickly discerned the person wrestling with him was an angel and insisted he must be blessed, otherwise, he won't let go.

So, after much struggling, the Angel of the Lord touched the hollow of his thigh bone, this resulted in serious dislocation which made Jacob limp and depends on staff as walking aid for the rest of his life!  However, the touch by the angel was more than a mere touch.  The touch by the angel of the Lord was beyond physical thigh of Jacob.  He touched his nature of manipulation, supplanting, lying, grab it all, tricking and deceit. 

That night marked the beginning of a new life for Jacob who had lived a very crooked life. God visited the faulty foundation of his life and gave him a new beginning. His transformation was whole as God gave him a new name ISRAEL. God laid an entirely new foundation for a man who left his father's house as Jacob and returned as ISRAEL.  From that day, the life of Jacob never remained the same again.

Believers will have to examine their foundation and cancel the wicked works of their father's houses that is working against them.  You are a new creature in Christ, but you have to cancel negative patterns of your family using the blood of Jesus if you will be free from such flows, otherwise, you risk suffering the same affliction they your mother or father suffered if you do not pray.  

There are no pretenses here, you have to cry to God to forgive the wickedness of your parents and have mercy on you and exempt you from the wrath to come upon the children of the wicked.  The time to repair your own foundation is now.  As Jacob put away his family and cried to the Almighty God for help, so will you do today. 

I have deliberately made the prayer points to be few so that when you start praying, the Holy Ghost will give additional prayer points that are necessary.

Prayer Points
1. Confess your sins and those of your forefathers.
2. O' Lord, have mercy on me, let your mercy counsel judgement of the enemy upon my life.
3. Blood of Jesus Christ wash away every wickedness in my foundation
4. Blood of Jesus wash away every inherited curse working against me
5. Evil spirit claiming ownership of my life, be silenced by the blood of Jesus Christ
6. Every voice crying against me in the spirit, be silenced by the blood of Jesus Christ.


Friends,  Jesus is coming back soon.  If you have not known Him, I plead with you to surrender your heart and troubles to Him now.  It is a prayer that should come from your heart. 

You have to confess your sins to God in prayer and ask for His forgiveness, believe He has forgiven you.  Then ask Jesus to come into your heart, and be your Lord and Saviour.  Believe the Lord has also accepted your request and His Spirit is already inside your heart.

If you said that prayer from your heart, know for sure that you are BORN AGAIN, a new baby in Christ.  You have also received the gift of the Holy Spirit and the power to be the son or daughter of God.  

Congratulations, you're born again!
