What is a Generational Curse?Is the cumulative effect on a person of things that their ancestors did, believed, or practiced in the past, and a consequence of an ancestor's actions, beliefs, and sins being passed down.
Is the “generational curse” real? Exodus 34:7 says that God “[visits] the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children's children, to the third and the fourth generation.” This worries me because my family has some skeletons in the closet — and sometimes I think past sins are playing out. Does God hold me responsible for something that someone else did?
Generational influences have the ability to bring blessings – or curses – to your life. An understanding of this reality brings the power to change not only your life, but the lives of your family members. Curses also run along blood lines. In Exodus 20:5-6, God warns the children of Israel not to follow false gods, saying, “You shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.”.
The word “iniquity” means to be bent toward a certain sin, and we see that the iniquity of the parents is carried on to the children to the third and fourth generations. So, a child will be bent like his or her parents, grandparents and great grandparents.They will all have an inner inclination toward the same certain sinful habits. Lamentations 5:7 says, “Our fathers sinned and are no more, but we bear their iniquities.” In other words, even though they may be dead and in the grave, their iniquity is sticking with you.
The good news is that generational curses and Iniquities can be stopped today!
The Blood of Jesus
Hebrews 9:22 tells us, “According to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no remission.” Here are two basic principles you need to know:
1) A generational curse comes through the blood line.
2) A generational curse can only be cancelled by blood.
It Is all about the blood of Jesus Christ. In Romans 3:23-25 (NIV), we read, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in His blood. He did this to demonstrate His justice, because in His forbearance He had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished.”
Breaking the Curse
If you are living under a generational curse, it will be cancelled when you, through faith, appropriate the blood of Jesus for your deliverance.
You can pray and make this your confession:
Thank you, God, that generational curses are broken through faith in the blood of Jesus. I put my faith in the blood. I believe Jesus is my mercy seat and that His blood cancels the curse and breaks generational iniquities. I believe, by the blood of Jesus, that the generational curse from the law is cancelled and broken off my family now, in Jesus’ name. Thank you that sins, bondages and iniquities are cancelled and the curse is stopped by the blood of Jesus. Thank you, God, that the blood of Jesus on the mercy seat is a barrier and that a curse cannot pass the blood. Amen.
Its my prayer that every person who will read this article will get a revelation and be enlightened.
