I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; Deuteronomy 30:19
If a curse has landed on you and has been broken, it still doesn’t mean you are delivered from the spirits that entered in through that curse.
I noticed that all of my aunts and uncles are pretty bitter people even if they laugh, party and have relationships. They are not the mushy affectionate type. And they have a thing with money. I have also noticed my father’s side of the family, have a stronghold with money and sexual promiscuity. I have noticed that not only have I suffered from depression, but my mother has also. And outside of me, I have observed things like, ‘wow he is just like his grandfather, even though he has never met him, with those temper tantrums’ or ‘he must have inherited that from his mother”, etc. Many would say you are being over spiritual, that’s just DNA or even learned behavior! But no, it isn’t just that; spiritual curses are also inherited from one generation to another.
God told the people of Israel that they had a choice to make: they either obeyed God and received blessings or disobeyed God and received cursing. In Deuteronomy 28, the chapter starts off with blessings: “God’s blessing inside the city, God’s blessing in the country; God’s blessing on your children, the crops of your land, and your livestock. God’s blessing on your basket and bread bowl(food supply) ; God’s blessing in your coming in, God’s blessing in your going out. God will defeat your enemies who attack you. They’ll come at you on one road and run away on seven roads. God will order a blessing on your barns and workplaces; he’ll bless you in the land that God, your God, is giving you. And then goes on, into the curses, to those who disobey; here are a few: family illnesses, barrenness, or financial lack, poverty, ‘bad luck’, mental problems, humiliation, persistent irrational fears and depression.
Curses are real, and so is the spiritual world. Some people deny the fact, claiming to not believe in these things- not believing that your eyes are brown does not change their color. The spiritual world is very real, and we reap all the consequences of our actions: the good and the bad. But when we come to Jesus, and open our hearts to Him- He begins to break and destroy the work the enemy has done in our lives. With God, we are no longer naked in the world, we are covered. God fights for our souls, and therefore warns us against things we may bring to ourselves. We are protected, from the plans of the devil, but because we were naked in the world with out God, we need to address all of the areas which the enemy did have power in. And this is why we need to not only break generational curses, and stop compromising with the sins of our ancestors, but also kick the intruders out. Get out Satan, you no longer have a place in my life, in my relationships or in my body, the blood of Jesus is against you. See as the body of Christ, and even people who believe in God- we do not know the truth about spirituality. Only those who were in spiritual sins with the dark world have an idea, of it’s truth. Today I want you to know, that you have an enemy. He’s been after you all of your life, only to destroy you and the purpose why God brought you here. If you pray and truly seek His face, He will lead your path and He will fight for you as He will also fight with you, because He is for you.
Father God, Moses encouraged the Israelites to choose life, and reminded them, that their choices not only affected their life, but also the descendants which will come from us. I pray you help us decide for you, I pray for renewed love of your presence, your word and salvation itself. I confess the sins and iniquities of my parents and grandparents, whether they were witchcraft, sexual immorality and/or adultery, prostitution, strife, gossip, hate, envy, idolatry, loving money, making pacts with other gods or spirits, turning their back on you, running from you, denying you, lying on your name, swearing falsely, candle-lighting, praying to saints, reading astrology and horoscopes, reading tarot cards and mugs, making offering to spirit, dancing for spirits, participating in seances, sacrificing animals or getting abortions, committing suicide or homicide, getting tattoos or piercing in the name of other gods… whatever it is God, you know these things more than I could ever imagine. I ask you break all chains, and spiritual doors that our ancestors may have opened. And I declare that by the blood of Jesus, these sins have been forgiven and Satan and his demons has no way to enter into my life, through these doorways. In the name of Jesus, and by the power of His blood, I declare that all generational curses and pacts that were made be renounced, broken and destroyed NOW! In the name of Jesus, I declare myself and my future generations loosed from any and all bondage passed down to me from my ancestors. In Jesus name, AMEN!
