Question 22 – Sons and grandsons are punished for sins of their forefathers!

Exodus 34:7 NKJV - "keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children to the third and the fourth generation."
Isaiah 14:21 NKJV - "Prepare slaughter for his children Because of the iniquity of their fathers, Lest they rise up and possess the land, And fill the face of the world with cities.""
Ezekiel 18:20 NKJV - ""The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself."
Deuteronomy 24:16 NKJV - ""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."
                Jacob experienced parental grief according to the cheating which he did. When Absalom died, David cried out by tearing his clothes according to the unjust deeds which he did. The father gets the grief when the Lord’s fury comes upon his children. Cain became the murder of his brother according to the Adam’s sin. The children experience the harms which came from the bad habits of their fathers. The contagious diseases, which earned by the father through the adultery are spread to the children through his wife. Not only father’ health gets spoiled by the alcoholic drinks and dies; his family also grieves without safety.

                What is the meaning in, “The soul who sins shall die” Everyone must experience the punishment which come from their sins and trespasses in the judgment of dead in mid sky. The dead will get resurrection. Thereafter, the judgment of the Lord and punishment will occur. The inner meaning in this is that Lord will punish an individual for his sins only.
