Being an author of what many call sweet ‘Christian fiction with a Messianic twist and a hint of history’, and nonfiction LAMB Ministry Book(s), some have asked if these books have anything in common. So, I'll show you how abuse continues to impact the abused and why more than 500 years after the Spanish Inquisition began generational fear
continues to cause Sephardic Jews, like Naomi too disown their own reality.
Before I begin, I need to share one very important concept with you, that is congruency, for too own oneself they must think and act congruently. Those trapped in abuse are taught to live a lie and in doing this, they disown themselves. Whether the reason seems valid to us or not, these individuals fear of being found out and the possibility of reprisals escalating will keep most trapped unto the third and fourth generation as we read in Exodus 34:7-8 which says, "...Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes them and their children for the sins of their parents to the third and fourth generation."
Those longing to be free of what went before, as Naomi and my LAMB Ladies do, when we first meet, or read about them, have many issues in common, here are a few of them:
Fear of reprisals
A desire to fix the situation
Do not know how to change things
Fear that trying to change things will make them worse
Have been taught that they cannot survive outside the system they are in
Lack the skills that would ensure them they could succeed in the world
Fearful of finding out that what they have been told about themselves is really true they will most likely: recreate the same system, marry into a system that looks healthy but isn't, or bond with another abuser.
But the Good News is that in Messiah (Christ), Exodus 34:7-8 has no hold on us for in Yeshua (Jesus) we are free of what went before! All we have to do is claim His victory, so take my hand and I'll show you how.
