“Pirating means: to commit or practice Piracy upon; rob or plunder as a pirate does, to take by piracy.  Someone, who appropriates and produces without authorisation as for his or her own profit.

The law does not permit pirating by no means, yet we are all at risk of doing it.  For example, when we choose to – copy a card and give it away to someone, to copy something off the internet with copyright protection and it comes out in very small print as a result for protection purposes.

When a person does the above it’s called stealing.  When a copywriter takes information for advertisements or publicity releases, he or she will obtain a permit through the right channels of the law, giving them permission to obtain (the exclusive right, granted by law for a certain term of years, to make and dispose of copies of and otherwise to control, a literary, musical, dramatic, or artistic work) according to the Macquarie Concise Dictionary.

We as Christians have been plundering and pillaging without our knowledge of the repercussions to this heinous sin which indicates why many of us have been plundered of our rights.

Pillaging is taking the spoils or the booty of another’s property, in other words – it’s all stealing.  When looking up the word to spoil, the dictionary explains its meaning as (pillage; booty; plunder.  To plunder, to impair; to ruin.  To grow useless; to decay).

When we as Christians become informed of sin in our lives, we have a responsibility to turn it over to Christ Jesus who forgave our sins on the cross at Calvary when Jesus declared, “Forgive them, Father!  They don’t know what they are doing.” (Luke 23:34 GNT)

This is the only time when we are not stealing, and it’s when we don’t know what we are doing is wrong.  But once the truth of the matter is revealed to us, we must repent and acknowledge our wrongdoing and inform others of the sin, as Jesus instructed in (Luke 17:1-5 GNT) which describes how, “Things that make people fall into sin are bound to happen, but how terrible for the one who makes them happen!  It would be better for him if a large millstone were tied around his neck and he were thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.  So watch what you do!  If your brother sins, rebuke (to reprimand, reproof) him and if he repents, forgive him.  If he sins against you seven times in one day, and each time he comes to you saying, “I repent,” you must forgive him.”  These are our instructions always to have compassion on others as Jesus has upon us when we do not know we have sinned.

So now let go and let God on this heinous sin against God in all our lives and that of our family’s bloodlines:
*”Lord Jesus we have all gone astray from your will for us at various times during our lives when we have taken what is not rightfully ours, and committed the offences of pirating which is stealing without knowing.

Lord Jesus I am accountable for my own sins in this regard and I am truly sorry for them, and I also repent of not informing others of this sin.  But I now repent of this sin of pirating for myself and my family, which I now cast onto you Lord Jesus in the acceptance of your forgiveness for this and other sins which have been accounted us as with regard to stealing through pirating.

Jesus your shed blood at Calvary has paid the price for our sins, so I now ask you Jesus to wash and cleanse me, and (names of your family members) with your precious blood, and to sanctify us from sinning in this way ever again through sending us all, the Holy Spirit to give us the insight and wisdom to discern what is right from wrong in our lives.

Lord Jesus we turn away from our sins of pirating, to your provisions instead, and we will rely on your promises to look after every need we have as you declare to us in your Word the Bible, in (Matthew 6:8-15 GNT) “Your Father already knows what you need before you ask Him.  This then is how you should pray:  “Our Father in heaven; may your holy name be honoured; may your Kingdom come; may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us today the food we need.  Forgive us the wrongs we have done, as we forgive the wrongs that others have done to us.  Do not bring us to hard testing, but keep us safe from the Evil One.”  “If you forgive others the wrongs they have done to you, your Father in heaven will also forgive you.  But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive the wrongs you have done.  Which is the truth that sets us free.

Jesus you alone are ”The Lord, and the Lord alone is our God.” (Deuteronomy 6:4 GNT).  Thank you for dying on the cross for our sins.  I now invite you to be the Lord of my life, and (names of our family members).  Please keep us in your will always, and “May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with everyone.  Amen!

So be it Lord Jesus to do it, and I draw the bloodline of Jesus over the whole lots, Amen!”
