The Impartiality Of God To All His Creatures

Fathers shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall children be put to death for their fathers; a person shall be put to death for his own sin“. Deuteronomy 24:16;

God is so impartial that He cannot punish the father for the sin of the son; neither will he punish the son because of the sin of the father. Those who have given their lives to the Lord and resolve to faithfully serve Him have nothing to worry about, not even the curse from any man. But many so-called believers who are ignorant of the Scripture lay much emphasis on generational curse, forgetting that “The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him” (Ezekiel 18:20).

Every individual is responsible for his sin. God has not predestined the salvation or condemnation of anyone, and those who teach such do err. Salvation is personal, and God will judge every man according to his work. “And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear” (1 Peter 1:7).
Sinners and backsliders can come to the Lord today and receive pardon because He is impartial and merciful.

Prayer: Father, thank you for you are an impartial God. Give me the grace to continue to fear you and walk before you perfectly, in Jesus name.
