A curse is the reverse of “to bless.” On the human level, to wish harm or catastrophe. On the divine, to impose judgment. (Zondervan All-in-One Bible Reference Guide). As we look at foundational scriptures we see that curses began with the fall of man. “To the woman he said, “I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you. To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, ’You must not eat of it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life. (Genesis 3:16-17). Adam and Eve received devastating judgment upon themselves. Curses were the result upon the human race because of this fall. It is the desire of many to have a loving, healthy and blessed family. Yet, we can look at our family tree and see the breakdown of God-ordained family structure. The good news is that God is full of great compassion and mercy. “The Lord is long-suffering and slow to anger, and abundant in mercy and loving-kindness, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and fourth generation.” Num14:18. God has paid the price for us all to be free from curses of any kind through Jesus Christ. However, we must appropriate and gain complete freedom and deliverance through repentance and renunciation of our own sins, sins of our parents and forefathers. Do you recognize a continual pattern of defeat and constant failure? Is there a generational cycle of sicknesses and diseases? Did you or your forefathers become involved in occultism of any kind? Do you constantly deal with anger and fits of rage? Is there a history of untimely From generation to generation, blessings or curses spring forth! deaths and suicides? History of abuse of any kind?

Generational Curses
The definition of a generational curse is iniquity and transgression that ruled in a particular generation of family members and pass on to the next generation; affecting the next generation spiritually and physically. These grievous and detestable sins of unrepentant parents or forefathers opened the door for the enemy to continue his work upon the next generation. For example look at the pattern of divorce in families and our nation as a whole. The United States has one of the highest rate of divorce. When sin and iniquity take root in the heart of people it perpetuates itself to the next generation of people. Including Christians that have allowed sin and iniquity to have dominion in their lives. Have we as a people of God allowed the enemy to deceive us? Where there is sin and iniquity, there is deceit and spiritual blindness. Hosea 4:6 says, “My people perish for a lack of knowledge.” It is God’s will that we are knowledgeable and have a clear understanding of His Word.

Disobedience and Sin Resulting in Curses
The most common thing that brings about curses in one’s life is sin and disobedience to God. Christians and non-believers give Satan an open invitation to operate in their lives or family through sinning knowingly or unknowingly. As Christian parents we have a responsibility to live holy lives. If righteousness is not chosen the results can become so devastating to a family. “If a person sins and commits any of these things which are forbidden to be done by the commandments of the Lord, though he does not know it, yet he is guilty and shall bear his iniquity.” (Lev. 5:17). Look at the case of Cain and Abel. Cain’s heart was not pure before God, instead his heart was bent on living wickedly. He already had hatred toward his brother, Abel. The rejection of Cain and his offering were not about what he brought to sacrifice, but the condition of Cain’s heart was not right before God. So it is today, many think that their worship is acceptable to God, even while they are living a wicked life. Not so according to scripture. “The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, but the prayer of the upright is His delight.” Prov. 15:8. God knows the very motives and intents of our heart. Abel’s life is a representation of living righteously by faith. Cain was deceived not understanding that God sees everything in our heart. “The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination; how much more when he brings it with wicked intent! God gave Cain an opportunity to get his heart right, instead Cain chose to rebel against God. Cain killed his brother in the field. Listen to what the Lord says to Cain. “So now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength to you. A fugitive and a vagabond you shall be on the earth.” Gen. 4:11,12. This curse was initiated upon Cain due to his sin. A vagabond is a person that aimlessly wanders from place to place; very sorrowful and poverty stricken with no fixed address. We can have the blessing of God by choosing obedience and turning away from sin.

Disobedience and Sin Resulting in Curses
Consider the case of Achan in Joshua, chapter seven. Achan involved himself with a cursed thing. By disobedience and rebelling against God’s instructions, he brought a curse upon himself, his family and the nation of Israel. Here we see the curse infiltrating devastation, removing the protection of God. The Israelites were explicitly warned not to take the items of this other nation. Why did God command this? These items had demonic presence upon them and were considered cursed. The Israelites could not win a battle against the enemy if they had an accursed item among their possessions. Let’s look at some modern day examples of people bringing cursed items into their home and experience defeat. Many people travel or rather purchase items of other countries that are cursed due to demonic incantations pronounced upon the items. These items are displayed and used for interior decorations of their home. For example, graven images of demon gods, cultural mask, African voodoo mask, framed photos and pictures that are demonic representations of someone’s false religion. This is a physical form of idolatry that can be seen with your natural eyes, but what about the idolatry in your heart. The worship of things, such as cars, vehicles, houses, money, possessions, people often sets on the throne of people’s heart. God is our King and He is the only one that should sat on the throne of our heart. “Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a curse thing.” (Deuteronomy 7:26). If you want your life and home to be free from curses, obey God. Greed and deception took over Achan, he thought that his undercover sin would go undetected. Achan paid a high price for his disobedience, it was death for him and his family. As believers we must not allow material things or people become first place in our lives. Do you need to clean out any cursed things in your home?

Lord, Open My Spiritual Eyes
As believers, we need to take inventory of our lives. Place your dependence upon the Holy Spirit and ask the Lord to reveal to you any deception of the enemy. God is faithful, it is His will that we are not deceived, but enlightened to the truth of His Word. We, as believers must know and understand that we are required to walk in total obedience to God. Yes, we must make ourselves accountable to God at all times. He is omniscient, He knows everything about you. God knows our every action and intent of the heart. There is no such thing as secret sin, God sees it and so does Satan. In fact the enemy uses sin to gain a foothold in a person’s life. God blesses obedience. Satan seeks to devour the believer through sin and disobedience. Our standard of holiness and righteous living must be in agreement with the Word of God. Walking in the Spirit closes the door to Satan. As believers, me must close any door that gives access to the enemy. “The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, the whole body will be full of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light.” (Luke 11:34 -36). May God grant you spiritual understanding and enlightenment that you will know what is the hope of His calling.

Obedience Connected to Blessings
Although we no longer live under the law, God will not violate the principles of His Word. His precepts for an overflow of blessings are directly connected to the believer’s obedience to Him and walking in the reverential fear of the Lord. The following scriptures confirms it: Deuteronomy 28:2 - “And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.” Psalm 128:1, 2 - “Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in His ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee.” Deut. 11:26-28 - “Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; a blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the Lord your God.” Let’s begin with the small things that God asks us to do. Often we think the small things are so insignificant and we refuse or neglect to do them. However, when we refuse to obey even in the smallest of things that God asks us to do, we’ve missed a stepping stone to higher things in the Lord. If God cannot trust us with the small things, why would he entrust to us things of greater significance? I’m reminded of the story of Jesus preaching to a great crowd of people, they were pushing and crowding on Him, so Jesus asked Peter to launch his boat a short distance into the water, so he could preach more effectively to the people and Peter obeyed. Therefore, the people were blessed to hear the good news of the gospel. What if Peter had not obeyed? What if Peter had said, Jesus do it yourself, you got the power. Here we learn the importance of obedience, submission to authority, and humility. It paves the way for God to release His blessings into our lives. Does that mean we won’t have difficulties, trials and tribulations in this life? No. However, God is ever present to release His blessings into our lives. He says, “ I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11). I declare blessing and prosperity over you today as you walk in the divine will and purpose of God. No weapon that the enemy has formed against you will prosper. God covers you with divine protection, deliverance and blessings!

Jesus, the Curse Breaker
“Christ purchased our freedom [redeeming us] from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], cursed is when we appropriate the promises of God by confessing with our mouth and believing with our heart, it is the same with breaking curses and releasing the blessings of God. We must appropriate the promises of God to break the curses through repentance and renunciation. everyone who hangs on a tree (is Asking God to cancel every curse acticrucified).” (Galatians 3:13) AMP vated in our life or family.

Although We must take the initiative Breaking the curse and He has paid the price for us, to break the power of the just as salvation is received releasing the blessing! devil over us. “And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers. And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of the Lord their God one fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped the Lord their God. (Nehemiah 9:2, 3). Will you take a stand for a new beginning? “Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it?” (Isaiah 43:19).

Put on the Full Armor of God
“Put on God’s whole armor [the armor of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [all] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. (Ephesians 6:11). We are living in such times that we must recognize the tactics of the enemy. He comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus came to give you life and life more abundantly. It is your responsibility to be equipped with the full armor of God. Walking so close to God that the Lord will reveal to you the plans of the enemy devised to work against you and your family. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Ephesians 6:12, 13. A battle is going on between the Kingdom of God and Satan. As saints of God, we must always walk with the full armor of God. Indifference, unbelief, complacency, luke-warmness, walking in carnality will not result in victory. We must walk in the Spirit, being led by the Spirit of God. For you are more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus! Equip yourself with the Word of God. It is your sword against the enemy. Stand and fight as a good soldier. God is with you, for the victory is yours!

Preparing for Your Release from Curses
Remember: The most important thing that God requires of us is obedience to Him. To gain and maintain your deliverance and blessings are submission and obedience to God. Step 1: Submit: set your heart to live totally and completely for God. By submission and guidance of the Holy Spirit. Step 2: Humility: humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, letting go of all pride. Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. Step 3: Repentance: repent of your sins, also for the sins of your parents and forefathers. Step 4: Renounce: meaning to not only repent, but turn completely away from them. Sin should no longer have dominion in your life. Step 5: Acknowledge: Jesus is now Lord of your life and He now has full control of your life. It is through His shed blood on the cross that you are now able to gain complete and total freedom. Jesus bore the curses for you. Step 6: Holy Spirit : Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you those curses that you need to specifically name verbally for repentance and renunciation. Curses of every kind. Step 7: Command: the presence of any evil spirit to leave you at this very instance in the name of Jesus. You have been given power and authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. This is your time for freedom. Step 8: Be Filled: ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit to overflowing. Thank God for your new found freedom in Christ Jesus. Step 9: Freedom: declare your freedom and testify to someone else what God has done for you. Step 10: Faith: The just shall walk by faith and not by sight. Continue to walk in this faith and endeavor to walk in the Spirit, not gratifying the sinful desires of the lower nature.
