Generational and Ancestral curses
Not For Sale
Generational curses have been taught for years and even centuries –it is not a “new” idea, it is not an idea birthed from within the WOF (word of faith) camp. These charlatans will teach that a black cat’s eyes are purple if they think money will come from it. Most always they use the same scriptures shown here below
• Exodus 20:5,
• Exodus 34:7,
• Numbers 14:18,
• Deuteronomy 5:9
• Deuteronomy 24:16
The doctrine of Generational Curses teaches that the sins of the fathers are passed on to the sons, this means the sin of alcoholism that was in your father has been transferred to you, if you have a family member that has suffered with depression or have had suffered with other forms of mental illness, this spirit has been passed on to the children and so on; every sin is seen as a result of generational curses and many books have been written on the subject that claim to have a direct insight in how to break generational curses that no one else has. Rather than test these claims by the Bible itself we often accept someone else's private interpretation of scriptural matters concerning this issue.
This teaching also gets people to believe in ancestral curses, the origin of this belief is nowhere to be found in the Bible. It is also taught that ancestral curses are linked to demonic possession, this teaching says that ancestral curses are the cause of our problems and that you can be a believing child of God Jehovah and yet be possessed by demons.
A generational curse or Ancestral curse hypothesis is not based on scripture, but it is rooted in superstition and occultist beliefs.
A Christian that is truly saved, truly believes, truly follows and truly loves and seeks Christ daily cannot be inhabited / possessed by a demon. That’s the most idiotic statement, or should I say one of the most idiotic statements made in years. Yet millions of milk drinking, bowl lapping saints will believe these lies and others and start “paying “some preacher for the answer and relief of their sorrows.
The Holy Spirit and Satan’s spirits (hired hands) cannot cohabit the same space.
Satan want’s nothing to do with Jesus – so surely he will not send his minions to move in with the Holy Spirit –
Satan likes to make people think that he is that strong, he likes to intimidate, cast fear and doubt plus a plethora of other things at each and every true believer.
Give this a thought –
If Satan could do all he claims; there would not be one single believer left alive now and they’d all be in hell. Truth be told, Satan is not that powerful and certainly not more powerful that Jesus Christ.
Looking at one scripture, which deals with the subject directly……Ezekiel 18:19-21
Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live. The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him. But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
(Ezekiel 18:19-21 KJV)
This proves that there cannot be either ancestral or generational curses!!!!!
Let me interject here this fact:
Satan has a blueprint of us so to speak, he has some latitude with those of his choosing as we can see in the book of Job – and other places. He has his minions who do his watching and reporting, he uses spirits and principalities to attack us based on our habits both past and present and he also attacks us based on our past deeds and etc.,
He knows how to push your button, he knows what to tempt you with and he is a master deceiver.
Some folk he just keeps them confused scripturally and spiritually and he has to do nothing else for then they are autonomous, as he reclines in his easy chair and watches over a bowl of popcorn….
The same spirit, same demon power can be assigned to a family and or individual family members for years upon years upon years – They know you better than you know yourself. Thus, in a moment when your prayer time is lacking, when you are NOT thinking on Philippians 4:8, when you become vulnerable through fatigue, or when you are serving another Jesus and another gospel – These spirits attack and like a windmill in a tornado – the beams of your mind and heart and mouth are splintered into a million pieces and at that moment of being scattered they attack each individual section ……in the moments of our weakness they attack and try to win by attrition.
Where we left off above my interjection statement:
Believing, teaching or helping people to think and live as if they have a generational or ancestral curse is unscriptural and places people under the Law and its condemnation. In believing and thereby supporting a belief, you also take part in the passage of it from yourself to others and as well to others who those pass it on to –
You in essence are a murder according to the Holy Spirit, because you have abrogated the truth of the Christ and what He did at the cross. You take people and place them under Law, which is death and you remove them from the blood, which is murder.
Let me say this again: The teaching of ancestral/generational curses is a complete rejection of the cross and an attack on penal substitution. It quashes the cross and puts the Gospel of Jesus Christ into to opprobrium.
