This summer I was on a Zoom call with other spiritual leaders to pray for America and President Donald Trump. This call was convened and led by Robert Henderson and it lasted for several hours.
I serve Robert as a hub leader and territorial director for the Pacific Northwest region for his ministries, GPEC and Global Reformers. As we were praying, I had an open vision and I saw a pair of bronze baby shoes like a mother would have made for each of her children as a keepsake and reminder of where they came from when they become adults.
As I was gazing intently at this pair of bronze baby shoes in my vision, I heard the Holy Spirit speak to me and clearly say, "Pay close attention to what I am showing you because this will become an important issue in the U.S. presidential elections later this year. In the closing weeks of the election, it will hurt Joe Biden's campaign and help President Trump to come from behind and pull out another upset win."
As the Spirit was speaking this to me, I had a spiritual understanding (interpretation) and/or inner knowing that these bronze baby shoes prophetically represented one of Joe Biden's children. Since Joe Biden has had four children, two of whom are deceased (Beau and Naomi), the two remaining children—both adults—are Hunter and Ashley, this would most likely apply to one of them. Literally and figuratively, the Lord was showing me that a shoe from the past was going to drop in this year's elections.
It came as no surprise to me when the New York Post ran their breaking story recently to lead the news coverage of Hunter Biden's laptop and the thousands of emails that were part of the data on the laptop. Additionally, other corroborating sources have since come forth to testify and provide additional information and emails about Hunter Biden's emails and the alleged involvement of former Vice President Joe Biden in Hunter's business deals in trading influence for money with several foreign governments.
Coupled with Hunter's other past issues with substance abuse and sexual escapades, these ancestral bloodline issues in the Biden family have now become the subject of investigations, U.S. Senate committee hearings, national news coverage, as well as potential political, legal and national security issues for Joe Biden and some members of his family.
The Bible is clear that "For whatever a man sows, that will he also reap" (Gal. 6:7b). Scripture also teaches us, "For nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and revealed" (Luke 8:17).
Proverbs 28:13 states, "He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy." 1 John 1:9 adds, "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
We see this issue of ancestral bloodline sins and their devastating consequences play itself out in many Bible characters, including David. David's own sin with Bathsheba and Uriah and Joab had a significant and noticeable effect on the lives of at least four of his many children, who had violent or untimely or fruitless endings to their lives. These included Absalom, Adonijah, Amnon and Tamar. David had unknowingly told Nathan the prophet in answer to a question that he should repay "fourfold" for his sin (2 Sam. 12:1-22).
Earlier this year near the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, as my state and many others were placed under quarantine and lockdown restrictions by governors, I decided to redeem the time. I began writing a book to help individuals and families be able to deal more effectively with ancestral bloodline sins and curses and find freedom, relief and breakthrough.
Building upon the solid foundation that Robert Henderson has laid in his extensive writing on the courts of heaven, my book is titled Prayers for Cleansing Ancestral Bloodlines in the Courts of Heaven. The book includes some 15-20 prayer templates in its 19 chapters and the book is divided into three parts. Part 2 covers the 10 core areas of sin which potentially affect all families and bloodlines.
One key Scripture that addresses ancestral bloodlines is 1 Peter 1:17-19 (TPT), which says: "Since you call on him as your heavenly Father, the impartial Judge who judges according to each one's works, live each day with holy awe and reverence throughout your time on earth. For you know that your lives were ransomed once and for all from the empty and futile way of life handed down from generation to generation. It was not a ransom payment of silver and gold, which eventually perishes, but the precious blood of Christ—who like a spotless, unblemished lamb was sacrificed for us."
The NIV notes "from the empty way of life handed down from your ancestors [forefathers]." Many or perhaps most of us inherit an empty and futile way of life from our families of origin—even, far too often, those raised in Christian homes.
Daniel 2:21-22 (NKJV) says, "And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding." The NLT says, "He controls the course of world events; he removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars."
So, as the 2020 election is upon us and this prophetic vision is playing out in real time on the national and international stage, I decided it would be encouraging and edifying to others in the body of Christ to share this vision and note its role and effect of the U.S. elections, and to reveal another part of the prophetic narrative and tapestry that God is weaving in the earth today.
