WE ARE IN THE SPIRIT WORLD WHEN WE DIE FOR ABOUT THREE TO FOUR GENERATIONS.... A GENERATION IS USUALLY AROUND, WELL IT STARTS AT 1 TO 20 YEARS SO WE COME BACK ANYWHERE FROM A YEAR TO 20 TO 80 YEARS TO 75 TO 100 YEARS...
AV Gn 50:23 And Joseph saw Ephraim's children of the third [generation]: the children also of Machir the son of Manasseh were brought up upon Joseph's knees.
JOSEPH FOR INSTANCE WAS ONE GENERATION, THE SECOND GENERATION AROUND TWENTY TO THIRTY YEARS WAS MANASSEH BORN...AND THE THIRD GENERATION WAS MACHIR AROUND TWENTY TO THIRTY OR SO YEARS AFTER THAT.
AV Ex 1:6 And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.
THAT GENERATION OF THE 12 TRIBES WHO WERE ALL BORN IN A RELATIVELY CLOSE TIME PERIOD LIKE ALL SIBLINGS
Ex 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth [generation] of them that hate me;
THE MOST HIGH PUNISHES SIN OF A PERSON UPON THE SAME SPIRIT REBORN THROUGH THEIR CHILDREN UNTO THE THIRD AND FOURTH GENERATION
Gn 38:8 And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother's wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother.
Gn 38:9 And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother's wife, that he spilled [it] on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother.
WE COME BACK THROUGH OUR FAMILY BLOODLINE, THAT'S WHY ONAN WAS TO RAISE SEED TO HIS BROTHER.... BUT ONAN KNEW THAT IT WOULDN'T BE HIS "NEW" SON TECHNICALLY, BUT, RAISING SEED ...THE SPIRIT OF HIS BROTHER BACK....
ER, ONAN'S BROTHER WASN'T DEAD FOR A FULL GENERATION WHICH LETS YOU KNOW WHEN A SPIRIT DIES IT CAN COME BACK WITHIN A YEAR TO 75 TO 100 YEARS WHICH WOULD BE UP UNTO THREE OR FOUR GENERATIONS.
Ezk 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
Ezk 18:20 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.
THE CHILDREN DON'T BEAR THE SIN OF THEIR FATHER...WHICH ALSO PROVES THE CHILDREN THE SIN FALLS UPON IS THE PREVIOUS FORE FATHER OF THAT CHILD GOING BACK TO AT LEAST ONE TO FOUR GENERATIONS..
SO WE ARE OUR ANCESTORS GOING BACK UP TO FOUR GENERATIONS
Num 1:18 And they assembled all the congregation together on the first [day] of the second month, and they declared their pedigrees after their families, by the house of their fathers, according to the number of the names, from twenty years old and upward, by their polls.
LINEAGE GOES THROUGH THE MALES....AND A GENERATION IS AROUND TWENTY YEARS PLUS OR MINUS A FEW YEARS OR SO.
