There are a number of areas that the prince of this world, Satan, has his hold over us, and one of these is in the area of bloodline curses. A bloodline curse is a curse that has been created somewhere back in your ancestry. and, because of this legality of the spirit which was only made clear to us recently in terms of the Courts of Heaven etc., these curses must be broken in the same spiritual legal system. So Satan has kept many of us in bondage through bloodline curses because we have been in ignorance as to how to clear them.
Jesus used many different types of healing during his time here on Earth. This was to teach us that there are different methods used for different wounds.
So what exactly is a curse? It turns out that there is no middle road here. You are either blessed or cursed. According to Frank Hammond’s book, Breaking Curses, “If you are not manifesting God’s blessing in your life, then you are under a curse. In the Old Testament the word for curse is arar, which means a to utter a wish of evil (opposite of love) against; a call for mischief or injury to fall upon, or to bind with a spell. From God’s perspective, a curse is a sentence of divine judgement upon people who fail to listen to His commandments.” Hammond states that there are several different kinds of curses, generational curses, personal sin, object curses, word curses, founding fathers curses and witchcraft curses or spells.
It was fascinating to read that generational curses are at work when one experiences continued or repeated things in one’s life such as sickness, relationship problems, poverty etc. Things that just keep happening again and again and it seems that we are just unable to break the spell of not enough money; failure to manifest one’s dreams in any one area, repeated sicknesses, on-going life traumas, mental and or physical break-downs, break-downs in family relationships and being hindered from hearing and knowing the Father’s voice. Of course we all experience these things from time to time in our lives, but it’s when they start being a pattern and showing up on a regular and repeated basis or you are not manifesting spiritual gifts, that it is a sign of a curse being in operation. And we just don’t know about this, until we come before God in an openness and humility and ask for His help.
There are many things listed in the bible as being reasons for curses and you can read about them in Hammond’s book. Those that I found relevant to my life included, incest, fornication, children conceived out of marriage, witchcraft, forsaking God and going my own way. Remember these are personal sins committed either by myself in this lifetime or another, and/or committed by my ancestors back to four generations.
Finding myself challenged for money, I know that my mother for example carried ‘poverty consciousness’ as did my grandfather and his before him. So what did I have to lose? I had tried just about everything else to shake off the situation of not enough money that I have found myself in for the past seven years, but nothing has really moved for me in this regard. So I set about doing the spiritual warfare work of removing the various curses that I thought may be active in my life.
“Like a flitting sparrow, like a flying swallow, So a curse without cause shall not alight.” (Proverbs 26:2)
There are principles and secrets to getting our generations and us free from curses that want to devour and defile us. Just imagine a life—free from curses—that have sabotaged your future. Once curses are removed, nothing shall be impossible.
