TOPIC: THE DESTRUCTIVENESS OF A CURSE
TEXT. HOSEA 4:6 " My people perish for lack of Knowledge".
Curse is very dangerous and it is not what we should joke with.
Curse means afflictment of words of punishment or injury on someone. Curse is to pronounce ill- Luck to someone life. Curse is also the opposite of blessing.
HOW DOES CURSE COME:
1. Curse can come from God:
ď when I would have healed Israel, then the iniquity of Ephraim was discovered, and the wickedness of Samaria: for they commit falsehood; and the thief cometh in, and the troop of robbers spoileth without. And they consider not in their hearts that I remember all their wickedness: now their own doings have beset them about; they are before my face ( Hosea 7:1-2)Ē.
When someone commits Sin, then curse will come from God ( Gen.3:16-19).
When someone disobeys the word of God (Deut.28:15-19)
When One fails to pay oneís tithe and offering, such a person is a direct enemy of God (Malachi. 3:8-9).
Curse can also come from God as a result of immorality/sexual perversion practices (Leviticus 18:1-30; Lev.20:13, 18:22; Romans 1:26-27). The Holy Bible tells us in Hosea 4:6, that, "My people perish for lack of knowledge" Examples of acts of Immorality/sex perversions against Godís wish are as follows:
Homosexuality (lesbianism/gay). : Lev. 20:13
Bestiality : Ex. 22:19, Lev.20:15-16.
Having Sex with oneís parents : Lev.18:7.
Having Sex with oneís step mother : Lev.20:11; Lev.18:10.
Having Sex with oneís Sister : Deut.27:22; Lev.20:17.
Having Sex with oneís aunt : Lev.18:12-13; Lev.20:19.
Having Sex with oneís uncle: Lev.18:14.
Having sex with oneís daughter-in-law: Lev.18:15; Lev.20:12.
Having sex with oneís brother wife: Lev.18:16; Lev.20:21.
Having sex with mother and grand daughter: Lev.18:17.
Having sex with two Sisters : Lev.18.18.
Having sex with Sister-in-law. :Lev.20:21.
Having sex with oneís grand child
Sexual intercourse during menstruation :Lev.20:18; Lev.18:19.
Other abnormal sexual practices are as follows:
Arial Sex practices.
Oral sex practices.
And illicit sex practices of fornications and adulteries (Deut. 20:22-27; Lev.20:10; Matt.5:27-28).
Harlotry promotions, practices and visitations ( I Cor. 6:9).
Nude beaches promotions, practices and visitations "nude beaches are existing ;presently in some western countries".
As above are some of the easy avenues of coming under curse or curses from God.
SPECIAL NOTE: Curses from God is for the purpose of gaining any given person attention and causing him to turn away from his evil ways and towards God by living a purify life. If such a person refuses to respond in time; such a person poses to danger of everlasting death.
2. Curse can also come from genuine servants of God (Joshua 6:17, 26; Gen. 9:26).
3. Curse can also come from wicked men and false prophets/ministers (Num. 22:6; Num.23:1-30).
4. Curse can also come from oneís parent. Just like how Jacob cursed his son Reuben (Gen.49:3-4).
5. Curse can also come from oneís husband or wife, guardians, or any person in position over someone.
6. One can also place curse or curses on oneself (Proverb 6:2).
7. Curse can also come from those we have wronged; in this case, authority, age or position doesn't matter, if the person cursed is guilty.

Curse that cannot be removed:

BIBLICAL TRACING PROVING TO US THAT CURSES ARE VERY DANGEROUS/TRANSFERABLE:
My case study is taking from what happened to Prophet Eliís family; as I traced down to prove to us how curses started pursing Eliís family till it overtook them all :
a. How Prophet Eliís sons were acting dis Ėorderly(1 Sam.2:12-17).
b. How God pronounced curses upon Prophet Eliís family as a result of bad attitude of : Hophni and PhinehasĒ Eliís sonsĒ (1Sam.2:12-17).
c.(1 Sam.14:3) proving to us on how one of Prophet Eliís generation family member that tried to survived as a priest of God .
d.(1 Sam.21:1-9) hw Ahimelech the priest showed favour to David.
e.(1 Sam.21:6-23) how king Saul executed Godís priests/ Abimelech himself.
f.King Solomon concluded the mission by caging out Prophet Eliís generation. When he caged out Abiathar the priestĒ by removing himĒ , the only surviving priest of Eliís lineage. ďAnd unto Abiathar the priest said the king, get thee to Anathoth, unto thine own fields; for thou art worthy of death: because thou bareth the ark of the Lord God before David my father, and because thou hast been afflicted.So Solomon thrust out Abiathar from being priest unto the Lord; that he might fulfil the word of the Lord, which he spake concerning the house of Eli in Shiloh( 1 Kings2:26-27)Ē.
HOW TO COME OUT OF CURSES:
1. Repent and accept Jesus Christ as your genuine Lord and Saviour. And if yet to be baptized, go for correct water baptizing in order for the Adamic Sin nature following you as a result of Adam and Eve Sin in the garden of Eden to be wipe out, which our lord Jesus Christ has taken over on behalf of you/ all mankind on the cross of Calvary (Gal.3:13).
2. Accept and hear the word of God (Exodus 15:26).
3. Obey the word of God (Joshua 1:8).
4. Go for counseling/deliverance.
Some practical aspect on how to break curses:
1.Acknowledge your sins and the sins of your fore-fathers/mothers up to fourth generation backward.
2.Cover yourself, house, family, properties (general aims and objectives), etc. with blood of Lord Jesus Christ.
3.Read the following scriptures 4 times each(psalm51;130;6;38 &25).Also read:Daniel9:3-19;Nehemiah1:4-10.
4.Sing praises unto God by lifting up His name.
When you through read the following scriptures just once:Psalm40;41;42; 103;104;105;107;100;150.
5.Read just once the following scriptures:3John1:2;Jer.29:11;Isa.48:17;Psalm50:15;Zech.2:8;John14:13-14.And invite the presence of Lord Jesus Christ to take over you.
MAY THE PEACE OF THE BE WITH YOU.
