It is time we stopped claiming all kinds of reasons why we have curses on us. There are only two reasons: 1) not listening to God, and 2) not obeying His word.
(Deuteronomy 28:1, 2) And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
If your effort is to obey and to hearken diligently to the voice of God’s Word, blessings will seek you out and they will not be lost. They overtake you!
HOW DO I KNOW IF I’VE BEEN CURSED?
We need to look out for curses in our own lives and in those of others. We have to bring the work of Satan out into the open. That’s why Jesus came to this earth. He came so that He could destroy the works of the devil.
(1 John 3:8) For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
The following list is helpful to use as a checklist of symptoms that can indicate the presence of curses. Take this list and check through your own life and your family. If these symptoms are prominent in your life, you need to repent of any sin in your life and in your ancestors, and break the curses.
Fear of Failure
Disfavor from God
One sickness after another
Family always fighting
Things always going wrong
Accidents looking for a place to happen
THE SOURCE OF THE CURE IS GOD.
THE ONLY WAY TO THE CURE IS JESUS.
DEATH ON THE CROSS WAS AND IS THE ONLY PRICE THAT WAS PAID FOR THE CURE.
HOW TO REMOVE CURSES
In Deuteronomy 28:1-2 we have the promise that if we shall hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord, we shall have the blessings overtake us. However, in Deuteronomy 28:14, it says, “if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statues which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee.”
I exhort you with all my strength and heart to read from verse 15 until the end of Deuteronomy 28. If you see any of these curses in your life or in your family, pray to God in Jesus’ name and repent for any unforgiven sins that you or your generations before you have done to cause these curses. Command the curses to be broken in the name of Jesus Christ and speak blessings to replace the curses in the name of Jesus. We have written out the entire passage in Appendix 1, so that you can logically and constructively deal with these matters that have had destructive consequences in your life.
This is not a religious experience. It is a spiritual preparation for you to serve your God, to be good parents, to be good spouses, and to be a great witness to a world that is dying in its curses. As these blessings start to minister to you, day-by-day, you will see changes. You will feel stronger, your confidence in your relationship with the Lord will be stronger, and your family ties will be sweeter. Financial blessings generally take some time, but as you are faithful to do what the word of God calls you to do, you will also see blessings in this area.
My prayer for each person that is reading this book is for his or her life to change, to move closer to the center of God’s will, to be that witness that we are asked to be in God’s Word. Our confidence in God will continue to grow until we can say to that mountain, “Be thou removed,” in the name of Jesus and see it come to pass.
Please allow me to pray with you: Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, we come before you with praise and thanksgiving for the marvelous work that you have done for us. You gave your only-begotten Son, our Savior, to die on Calvary’s cross and to suffer such torture, so that we could be your children. You paid the price that it cost for all of our sins and the disobedience that we continue to do in our lives. Thank you right now for breaking the power of that sin in our lives and setting us free from any curses that have held us in bondage. We ask this in the name of Jesus for ourselves and for our families. We repent for the sins of our ancestors and of our nation. We ask that you will cleanse us with the blood of Jesus Christ as white as snow. Thank you that you will remember those sins no more. We humbly ask that you will help us to continue to obey your word, to seek your face, and to love and love some more. Thank you for all of the wonderful blessings of rest, health, prospering in your way, being able to bless those who curse us, being able to forgive and be forgiven. Thank you for encouraging us to speak your promises against any problem that we have. Give us faith that is greater than our problems. Help us to forgive those we have not forgiven, even if they have cursed us. We repent for any occult or occultist practices in our lives and in our families, or anything that we have permitted to get into our lives that have led us away from making your Son, Jesus, our Lord. Give us the strength to glorify your name in all situations, to give the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving in place of complaint and discouragement. We thank you, Heavenly Father, for all that you have done in our lives and are going to do, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
