Breaking Generational Curses
I have found the following materials helpful As you know, the devil is everywhere. He has not respect of persons. He operates without racial or geographical barrier. He is not careful at all. Let no one deceive himself that the devil operates in a particular environment. He is not confined at all. He is going about seeking whom he may devour.
Ephesians 6: 10-13
“Finally, be strong in the lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God o that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms”.
Christian race is not for the careless. The careless ones are being overtaken by the devil. All that Paul recommended for the journey should be adhered to very strictly without compromise.
I have discovered that curses runs from generation to generation. It has affected the spiritual lives of many. It has destroyed matrimonial homes. when there is a curse in a particular family it can spread unto as many generations as possible if it is not broken.
The following materials should be of tremendous help.
“Curses exist and are very real even in this day and age. They are present in both the Old and the New Testament. They are the invisible block to healing, deliverance, or salvation. Remember that God never changes and His Word never changes.
In Deuteronomy 28 He sets before us the blessings and the curses, and tells us to choose which we will. We are told that if we obey all His commandments (teachings of scripture) that we will be blessed to 1,000 generations and that if we are disobedient we would be cursed to the fourth generation. Before proceeding further, please read Deuteronomy 28:3-13; Deuteronomy 28:16-68; Proverbs 26:2; and Deuteronomy 30:19.
There are three kinds of curses:
1. Self-inflicted by one’s own words
2. Those spoken over, formed against, or directed at oneself or another person by others.
3. Generations curses.
Self-inflicted curses and curses spoken upon someone by others must be bound, loosed, and broken in the Name of Christ Jesus, binding Satan first. A prerequisite for the breaking of all curses is repentance on behalf of others, or oneself, for what was said intentionally or not intentionally. You will find that in general, prayer does not break curses. Repentance and declaration of a break of the curse is what is required.
Then we speak repentance for any people whom these ancestors may have hurt and ask the Lord’s forgiveness. Suspect the presence of a curse when circumstances are unchanged by prayer. Again, prayer does not break a curse, only repentance, followed by oral proclamation of breaking the curse in Christ Jesus’ Name.
Follow this by speaking a blessing upon the person.
Suspect a generations curse when you see:
1. Multiple cases of the same problem occur in the family line, such as multiple premature deaths, multiple cases of alcoholism, multiple cases of divorce, stroke, heart disease, accidents, multiple family members practicing fornication or other repetitive sins
2. Deliverance, healing, or salvation are not received
- Misfortunes of the same kind or another keep happening repeatedly
4. Personal performance at work or at home is continually impaired or hampered despite one’s best efforts, or is continually frustrated so that nothing seems to help or to be able to change or improve it.
5. You, your work, or efforts are continually or repeatedly opposed or destroyed by people.
Common signs of curses are as follows:
. Continual financial problems.
. Continual lack of prosperity
. Chronic physical or mental illnesses.
. Premature death.
. Multiple or repetitive accidents or injuries, particularly of the same type.
. Chronic strife or arguments or problems with interpersonal relationships.
. Hereditary physical or emotional problems.
. Multiple manifestations of the same kind of physical, circumstantial, or emotional problems in the family line, such as multiple cases of suicide, etc.
. Chronic torment.
. Poor eating or sleeping habits in infants or children.
. Failure to thrive in young infants or sickliness
. Business failures, single or repeated
. Inability to conceive children or multiple miscarriages
The appropriate remedy is the repentance and breaking the curse in the Name of Christ Jesus.
Curses and blessings cross over from the Old Testament to the New Testament unchanged.
Open doors to curses are as follows:
. Involvement in the occult sciences such as witchcraft or Satanism, or organizations using the occult sciences in an open or disguised manner such as: Yoga, witchcraft, black MAGIC, Buddhism,
. Pagan religions, telepathy, clairvoyance, séances,. Involvement in idolatry
. Disobedience to God’s Word
. Rebellion against God
. Pursuing sexual sins or perversions, or all sin for that matter.. Ancestral sins.
. Cursing God.
. Manipulation or defrauding of others… Desecration of the Body of Christ (the Church).
. Failure to tithe.
