"I Am Breaking Family Yokes!"
By Nate Johnston
Recently in a dream, the Lord took me into a hoarder's home filled with rubbish, old belongings and piles and piles
of stacked boxes, filling it to the point that I could barely walk through it. Then I heard the Lord say, "Prophesy to the home. Prophesy to the four corners of the home exactly like it says in Ezekiel 37:4-5.”
He said to me, 'Prophesy to these bones and say to them, "Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life."'" (Ezekiel 37:4-5)
the Home Clean
So I began to prophesy and speak to the home. I began to speak God's heart and intentions over every room of the house until suddenly a torrential wind entered and started helping. It came through lifting up
every box, piece of trash and piece of clutter and blew it out of the house.
Then the Lord said, "I'm sweeping out the home, I'm cleaning it out, and I'm going to shut the doors on the enemy where he has ruled and reigned;
because doors have been opened, and families have been left vulnerable and wide open to the attack of the enemy.
"This is an hour that I'm coming to heal and repair generations upon generations of damage. And I'm restoring
families back to their original design that I intended for them," says the Lord.
"For many years, addiction and dysfunction have been the legacy of families, but this will be a season that I turn the enemy's agenda on its
head and begin to shift families into powerful Kingdom legacy instead of the addiction and dysfunction and endless cycles. These families will suddenly step into blessing, into favor and into health.
"In a moment, I'm coming
to sweep out the issues and the constant sicknesses that have been pervading marriages and families for generations.
"I'm coming to establish My Kingdom in homes where there's been open reign for the enemy to come and plant
"Yes, I am pulling out the weeds that have been planted and have been growing in the dark, where the light has not been allowed to shine – the unspoken conversations where sickness has been allowed to
fester and grow for years – and I am shining My light upon them so that the weeds can be pulled out once and for all!”
The Box of "Lost and Found”
I saw the doors of this
house flinging wide open as the wind of Heaven blew through it. Then I looked over at a corner of this home and saw a small box. As I came over to it, I noticed it said, "Lost and Found." In this box, I found scrolls and deeds sealed with family crests and
family names. Inside of them were homes, promises of prodigals returning home, finances restored and a full bill of health. I knew that this box was the redemption of the war on families. It was the place of restoration for things had been lost and stolen.
This box represented the Lord's plan to turn every assignment of the enemy on its head and flip the script for families who have faced endless warfare and robbery for generations. In its place, God is giving the deeds to clean bills
of health in every way. So many families have had endless sicknesses coming against them, with illnesses running in their family lines for generations. I saw that there had been addictions and perversions and many sins that had been handed down from father
to son and from mother to daughter for many generations; yet, in a moment, they were completely severed, and God was restoring health and wholeness.
I saw there had been a poverty spirit over families for many generations,
and God was healing them. I saw prodigals coming home. I saw husbands who were returning back to the Lord. I saw that this box represented the season we're entering into – the season of restoration for the family of God.
of the Breach
You see, the enemy has targeted the family. More than ever before, He's brought his battle to the family "living room." He placed this war in the living room for a purpose, because he wants to destroy and crumble
families from the inside out. But the Lord says, "In this hour, I am putting a mantle upon My Church to be restorers of the breach, and they will expel the enemy. They will throw him out; they will cast him out into the darkness, and they will build up the
foundations that, for many generations, have been torn down!" says the Lord. And that is what He's doing.
"And it shall come to pass in that day, declares the LORD of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off your neck, and
I will burst your bonds, and foreigners shall no more make a servant of him." (Jeremiah 30:8)
As I write this, I'm hearing the Lord say that there is deliverance coming upon you. There is freedom coming upon you where your
family has been in torment for many generations. The Lord says, "In this hour, I'm taking off the reproach of many generations from your shoulders. You're going to feel a yolk break off of you that has been on your shoulders for many, many generations," says
the Lord. "I am breaking the heavy yokes that have been around your neck and you will no longer identify with them!”
"They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined
cities that have been devastated for generations." (Isaiah 61:4)
Breaking Off Jezebel's Slavery
I even see many different spirits that have followed families for generations, going from father
to son, and they are being broken. In this hour, I see where the Jezebel spirit has been jumping down the generational line from family member to family member. This has been taking place for many generations, and narcissism has been following.
I hear the Lord say, "I am breaking the yoke that has been enslaving My people. In this hour, I declare: 'Let My people go!' They are being set free in Jesus' name. They will no longer tolerate her or appease her. They will no longer
let her into their marriages and relationships!
"And in this hour, I am breaking off all access to Jezebel's minions that have plagued your home with UNREST and CHAOS! Familiar spirits are being shut off from their access.
Surveilling and monitoring spirits are having their access removed, so they can no longer see into your homes and marriages. Witchcraft and control are being severed, and the roots and all connection points are being disconnected so that My FREEDOM is able
to break out in homes. For it's time to fortify the homes and turn dens of brokenness into places of My glory!”
Raising Up a Standard Over Families
I feel the Spirit of the Lord saying,
"I am raising up a standard right now over families.”
"...When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him." (Isaiah 59:19)
the walls of the Red Sea receding. I see families crossing through onto dry ground. I see the places where it feels like there have been obstacles on every side, where many have even asked, "How can this marriage pass through this obstacle?" or "How can my
children find Jesus in the midst of the cultural wars?" or "How can my child find their God-given identity again in such a time of gender confusion?"
The Lord says, "I have promised you that your children and your families
will cross through onto the dry ground. This is a time and an hour that I'm leading the family of God out of Egypt. I'm leading those who've been through dysfunction and through many, many, many generations of warfare and demonic attack – I'm leading
them out," says the Lord. "This is the hour that I'm raising up the former devastations of the family.”
Right now, I prophesy over you. I take authority over every single assignment and principality that's been sent
to disassemble and dismantle your family for many generations; every single one of them shall be broken. Every vow and every agreement that was made by your forefathers – by your family from many generations ago – we immerse under the Blood of
Jesus, and we make a better covenant right now. Lord, we just ask for a new bloodline to be set over those who are reading this right now, that You would set a new bloodline, in Jesus' mighty name.
Yes, the Lord says that
He is setting a new bloodline from this day forward, and you will no longer identify with the place you have come from. The Lord says, "You will honor and respect your family line but will step into MY bloodline from this day forward! It is a new day, and
everything that is behind you is immersed under the Blood of Jesus!”
"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out
of darkness into His wonderful light." (1 Peter 2:9)
Maybe you have been wrestling with addiction. Maybe you are wrestling with infidelity. Maybe you're wrestling with a broken marriage. Maybe you're wrestling with the grief
of a prodigal son or daughter. Maybe you're wrestling with being isolated and alienated. Maybe you're wrestling with not being able to find who God's called you to run with – your partner, your soulmate. Whatever it is, and in whatever way the enemy
has warred against you, today, the Lord wants to set you free.
I believe today there is an anointing on this to break bondages, especially for those of you who've grown up in narcissistic households and who, for many generations,
have experienced narcissism – even seeing the patterns and fruit of it in their own life. The Lord is breaking the Jezebel spirit that's been trying to put itself on you, wanting you to identify with it. Today it breaks!
Lord says to you today that you are pure. The Lord says to you today that you are holy. The Lord says to you today that you no longer have to identify with the sins of your forefathers, in Jesus' mighty name!
