Study On Generational Curses and Breaking them.
I have included Old Testament passages of God's way to forgiveness of these curses not only for us Christians but also for my Brother Non-Messianic Jews. It is my great pleasure to be of service to them in the Name of Jehovah and to introduce them to the Blood of Yeshua. God desires none of HIS people to be in bondage and has given us, all of us a way out!
In regards to Generational Curses we really need not look any further than Gen. 3 in which mankind received the ultimate generational curse. If generational curses were not true then no one would have to confess that Jesus is Lord and repent of their sins nor would their have been any need for the Law of Moses. The pattern of breaking the generational curses on our lives is just that a pattern to escaping the evil one in every area of our lives.
The living Word of God says that the curses due to the sins of the father are passed down to the third and fourth generation.
Numbers 14:18 "The Lord is slow to wrath and great in mercy, overlooking wrongdoing and evil, and will not let wrongdoers go free; sending punishment on children for the sins of their fathers, to the third and fourth generation.
If we use a little math we see that this could actually continue with no time limit: say Generation 2 of the four or three carries the curse and commits the same TYPE of sin. Now the curse is extended 3 or 4 more generations, Generation 2 plus 3 or 4 =to the 5th or 6th generation. This would and most likely will continue throughout a family's history; from beginning to end! I have heard of such demonization that goes back to the Aztec Indians! My friend, do you know without a doubt what your great grandfather/mother did?
"Exodus 20:5 I will send punishment on the children for the wrongdoing of their fathers, to the third and fourth generation." Did he/she practice witchcraft or the occult, an adulterer, abuser? Did he have a traumatic experience: divorce, attacked by a wild animal, or abused? Did I hear you say "HOLD ON! You added mothers in this deal." Please understand Psalms 109:14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
The Occult is especially dangerous the farther back in time we go the more prevalent it is. This does not mean that you and everyone have demons! However, these are doorways, entry points of evil that cannot be left open or unattended. These demons (unknown or known in one's life) can cause/exacerbate/imitate anything from financial problems, physical health, mental health; invading every area of your life. Including suicide or murder. Wonder why the "professionals" say it runs in families? My friend, God is GREAT!
HE is just and faithful to forgive if we confess and ask! "1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
Leviticus 26:40 also says that we should confess our sins and the sins of our FATHERS..
Jeremiah 2:9 Therefore, yet I plead with you, An affirmation of Jehovah, And with your son's sons I plead. Let us move to Jesus himself.
We see in John 9:1-3 And when he went on his way, he saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples put a question to him, saying, Master, was it because of this man's sin, or the sin of his father and mother, that he has been blind from birth? Jesus said in answer, It was not because of his sin, or because of his father's or mother's; it was so that the works of God might be seen openly in him.
First, let's notice the DISCIPLES asked HIM. Why did they ask Jesus if the man's condition was due to generational sin/curse if it was not true to their knowledge and Jewish beliefs? It is written in the LAW/curses that GOD gave Moses and other Prophets, which we have already seen.
Jesus' answer is most interesting! HE did not deny that his sin or his father's or his mother's could not have caused the man's condition! In fact, HIS denial of sin causing the man's condition confirms the possibility of the generational curse caused by the sin of ourselves and of those before us in our family line! If we follow the dialog further we see the Pharisees questioning the now UNBLIND man and he slams them back after the redundant questions and the Pharisees get mad and say "We are followers of Moses" and a little later they say, "you were born in sin."
Why do they say such things? Because they know the LAW/Curses God gave to Moses. My dear friends, the generational type curses are the #1 reason for demonization of God's people! If you are struggling IN CHRIST, could this be why? Please don't let this "door" remain open or unattended. Please say the generational curse warfare prayer in faith and slam the door shut in Satan's face, to the Glory of GOD! The verse the Lord gave me at the beginning of my deliverance is "Proverbs 28:13 He that covereth his transgressions shall not prosper: But whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall obtain mercy." The New International Version translates forsaketh as renounce.
I use the word renounce in this ministry that God has called me for but let it be understood that forsaking; quitting whatever sinful act you are confessing must be done. Otherwise the "door is reopened". In the generational sense you do not know all the sins of your forefather and/or foremothers, so how can you not do them or quit doing them? When you look the verses up (yes, I expect you to look and study for yourself) you will see it is written those who hate me, who walk not according to my ways, in their souls they hate me, etc…
My friend abstain from all evil as the grace of the Lord JESUS CHRIST is poured out upon you. Walk in the Spirit so that you do not do the desires of the flesh. Do the best you can and follow God first with all your heart, mind, and soul! HE is faithful and will do the rest! This is a fact and a promise. Praise HIM who lives forever. The NAME above every NAME in this life and the one to come! Thank you Jesus!
Freedom from Generational Curses
I have been bought by the price of your precious blood. I am your Child. You are the Father of the fatherless. You are my Father and defend the needy and the afflicted, in the name of Jesus.
I confess that my forefathers and foremothers have been rebellious. They have rejected you in every area of their lives. Therefore, you have rejected them and brought affliction and curses upon my family line even unto me and to my children's children.
Lord, they have worshipped false gods. They have placed all kinds of spiritual, soulful and physical idols before you. They have bowed down and offered sacrifices of spirit, soul, and flesh. They have made dedications and placed curses of all kinds, including destruction, poverty, sickness, disease, and of every infirmity and malady that is conceivable to spirit, soul, and body upon their descendants and others.
Merciful, Father, the males and the females of my family line, even back to the first generation have greatly sinned against you. They have been prideful, fearful, selfish, greedy, held unforgiveness, bitterness, malice, anger, wrath, rage, and a multitude of abominations, even soulful abominations and sin. Father, they have sinned with all types of debauchery, fornications, adulteries, sexual perverseness, lewdness, drunkenness, drug abuse, addictions of all kinds. They have touched unclean things, been abusers of their bodies and the bodies of others.
Father, you give mercy, grace, and forgiveness to all whom ask. I ask you Father God for mercy, grace and forgiveness for the sins of my family lines and for the sins that I continued doing. I ask you Lord God to cleanse me and to remove all curses that have been passed down to me, including those of the Masons, witchcraft, Satanism, Kabalist, and false religions in the name of Jesus Christ.
I now break every curse and dedication, every incantation and ritual from all generations that have been placed against me, including those done by sacrifice, blood, written in blood, sprinkled blood, oil, parchment, paper, fire, candle, wax, wood, stone, sand, string, rope, cord, effigy, needles, pins, nails, screws, and verbal, in the name of Jesus. I command every demon that is associated with any curses or dedications on my life, my children's life, and my house to depart totally and completely, in the name of Jesus. I command you to depart now, in the name of Jesus Christ! I command you, in the name of Jesus! I command you to depart now, in the name of Jesus Christ! I command you, in the name of Jesus, Depart now to the abyss!
Father, I now claim my new inheritance in You of peace, hope, love, and joy in the Holy Ghost. I claim now your promises for my family line and myself of prosperity, health, and righteousness, in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and my Savior.
Amen and Amen
