The Family Tree

There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.

Acts 5:16, KJV

Can you open doors to demonic influences/strongholds that impact bloodlines/families?

Three main categories of “open doors” to a vexed spirit.

1. Intrusion

Demons can invade because of broken homes, hardships, abuse, weak moments in life.

2. Involvement

Willful engagement in rebellion, occult, sexual sins.

3. Inheritance

The cycle of familiar spirits/strongholds through bloodlines from one generation to another. This could be physical (cancer, heart, depression) and spiritual (proclivities of bad character or sinful tendencies).

The prize of demonic attainment is the family.

Genesis 3:1-13

The battle in the garden of Eden wasn’t over a “tree”.

The battle was in part over the family tree of humanity.


Your family, as a follower of Christ, is intended to become trees of righteousness through the transplanting and transforming power of the Lord. 

The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the LORD’S favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion- to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit. that they ay be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified. 

Isaiah 61:1-3
