What was the #1 blog post for all time?
Breaking Generational Curses
Due to the fact that so much of interest was shown , I am going to revisit this post.
You are saved, baptized and full of the Holy Ghost, yet there are some areas that you are still struggling to get victory.When we got saved the spirit man was born again,but the strongholds that were allowed previously into our lives were never dealt with. After going to God and confessing and repenting of your sins, there are still some habits that seems not to go.You keep doing the same thing over and over.It becomes repetitious and this can signal that there is a stronghold in your life.
Many of the things going on in our lives such as fears, jealousy, mental illness, hatred, low self-esteem, gluttony, rejection, anger ,sexual perversions, spiritual heaviness fear are frequently related to what are called generational curses.. Curses which can be passed down from generation to generation, often times without you even being aware of their presence and yet have the ability to affect you.
Maybe you always seem to fail at your job and you can never keep one for more than a few months at a time. Did your father perhaps have the same problem and some uncle or some relative show the same tendency? You see these curses can skip a generation. If that is the case, you may have just identified a family generational curse. You can now stand against it specifically all the time and push it back so that it will not affect you.
Certain curses seem to affect certain aspects of our lives. Many times there is a curse of sickness and disease that runs in a family, There is hypertension or diabetes, or cancer or fibroids just to name a few. When you look at your family lineage, your grandparents, parents and now you or your sibling or even your child suffers with the same problem. It will continue down to your children and grandchildren and so on until you break it off.
Or perhaps there is a curse that is related to finances.You need to take a look at your own life and ask yourself what areas you are not blessed in. If you are not being blessed particularly in the area of finances and health or if you seem to have continual breakages or things going wrong with equipment, have a good look and see if you can see a pattern developing there.
Or you can recall words of anger and bitterness , negative words spoken over your life by some one in authority. You may already identify strongholds even as you are reading this. You can renounce those curses, reverse them and give them back to Satan in the name of Jesus.You have the authority to stand against the enemy and be set free. This book not only identifies the family generational curses and strongholds, it also tells you how to deal with them so that you can walk in liberty and freedom.
In Hosea 4:6 it says God's people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.When you don't have knowledge about something, sometimes its devastating. My siblings all went through this because they did not have the knowledge about generational curses and strongholds back then.
Conditions indicating curses (based on personal experience in ministering to people) 1. Mental and emotional breakdown
2. Repeated or chronic sicknesses (esp. without clear medical diagnosis)
3. Repeated miscarriages or related female problem.
4. Breakdown of marriage—family alienation
5. Continuing financial insufficiency (esp. where income appears sufficient)
6. “Accident prone”
There are many problems that you may be experiencing in your life.When you begin to realize some problems are handed down through the generations you can break the cycle by utilizing God's grace. If you seem unable to get past the hurts in your life maybe its time to do something about it.
I believe that every Christian should read these books.
These are powerful books,shows how people are living there lives, going through all kinds of situations and cycles and not having a clue of what is going on. All they know is that they don't seem to be able to live a life of freedom.
If you have read any one of these books or is aware of what I am speaking about, please leave a comment below
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.
And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)
The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.
- A Christian who loves to write about christian living, natural health and self improvement. I pray daily that the love and grace of God will be poured out through my life to others. I remind myself daily that whether or not I have "witnessed" I am still a witness in everything I do.
