Rarely can we point to a single cause for problems in our lives. They are usually complicated and can involve many people and events which impact us on a regular basis. Compound these events over a life-time and it is no wonder that we are often at a loss to discern the root causes of such pressing issues. These many facets continually interact to make us who we are.
This is true for the four sources of our problems and their negative effects on our lives. The four sources are: Generational Sins and Curses, Ungodly Beliefs, Life’s hurts, and Demonic Oppression. These sources are integrally intertwined. There is a fundamental interrelatedness between each one and the other three sources. In order to bring lasting healing and freedom, all four sources must receive ministry in the same general time frame, with the RTF minister understanding how each source relates to the others.
Restoring The Foundations is an integrated, structured approach to restoring us to our God given identity and purpose. The ministry consists of:
- Shutting the doors to the places in our souls where the enemy has gained access, both ancestral and personal, replacing generational curses with blessings.
- Renouncing the lies that we have believed about ourselves, others, and God, and replacing them with new beliefs that align with God’s word.
- Allowing Jesus to heal hurts from painful experiences that we are carrying inside and may not even be aware of.
- Finally, using our authority as believers to remove the sources of oppression that have been affecting our thinking and behavior.
Receiving ministry in these four areas helps us to move closer to the goal of becoming more and more like Jesus by living a life filled with joy and peace, regardless of our circumstances.
