Generational Unity
  • "Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me,
    O God, till I declare your power to the next
    generation, your might to all who are to come"
    (Psalm 7118 NIV).
  • "One generation shall praise thy works to
    another, and shall declare thy mighty acts"
    (Psalm 1454 KJV).
  • Be reminded that our Father is God of Abraham,
    Isaac and Jacob

Our call
  • Each generation is called to build on the
    foundation left by the previous generation
  • "And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to
    wrath but bring them up in the nurture and
    admonition of the Lord" (Ephesians 34 KJV).
  • "Remember the days of old, consider the years of
    many generations ask thy father, and he will
    show thee thy elders, and they will tell thee"
    (Deuteronomy 327 KJV).

The enemy
  • It is satans plan to cause disunity and mistrust
    between generations.
  • His strategy is to kill, steal and destroy us by
    drawing us away from God
  • 2Tim 31-4"But mark this There will be terrible
    times in the last days. People will be lovers of
    themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud,
    abusive, disobedient to their parents,
    ungrateful, unholy, without self-control, brutal,
    not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash,
    conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers
    of God" (NIV).

The Lords way
  • "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
    before the coming of the great and dreadful day
    of the LORD And he shall turn the heart of the
    fathers to the children, and the heart of the
    children to their fathers, lest I come and smite
    the earth with a curse" (Malachi 45-6 KJV).

  • Restoration through understanding
  • Restoration through love and forgiveness
  • Restoration through lead-by-example
  • Restoration through discipleship
  • Restoration through prayer and the power of the
    Holy Spirit

Building Strong Generation
  • We are building one holy generation in the last
  • Isaiah 5812 And they that shall be of thee shall
    build the old waste places thou shalt raise up
    the foundations of many generations and thou
    shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The
    restorer of paths to dwell in (KJV).
