By His Blood – Breaking The Myth of Generational Curses

By His Blood – Breaking The Myth of Generational Curses

“As a man thinks in his heart so is he. So if you believe in Generational Curses, Satan will all too happily accommodate your faith and provide a few.” – Brook Potter

When Jesus Christ entered the Garden of Gethsemane at the beginning of the Passion account, he spent all night in fervent prayer,so intense, that he began to sweat blood from his brow. (Luke 22:44) This was the beginning of the reconciliation of all things (Colossians 1:20). Where God, in Christ set out to undo the work of Adam, to redeem humanity from the fall. Starting right in these passages, the blood of Jesus broke the curses of Adam, that by the sweat of his brow he should earn bread. (Genesis 3:19)

As the Passion acount continues, we learn that at the Whipping post, the curse of sickness was destroyed, as by his Stripes we were healed. At the Cross, sin was dealt with and our old Adamic nature died in Christ. At the Resurrection we were born again as New Creations (1 Peter 1:3), and at the Ascension we sat in Christ at the right hand of the Father. In other words, the work of Jesus is finished and by our faith in these truths, we experience the realities of Christ’s work and are ultimately saved.

Where does that leave generational curses as explained in the Law of Moses? The answer is simple, at the Cross.

Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

Even under the Old Covenant, the notion of Generational Curses was not found to be true. In the Book of Ezekiel, God puts an end to this teaching once and for all. Ezekiel 18:2 -3 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel.

In the subsequent verses it goes on to explain that each man will be accountable for his own sins. That if a man be right and keep the commands, he shall live. (Ezekiel 18:4-9) Further if that right man have a son that is wicked, he shall not live. (Ezekiel 18:10-13) Then, if that wicked man has a son, that recognizes the evil of his father, and does not do likewise, that son shall live. (Ezekiel 18:14-19)

Ezekiel 18:19 – 20 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.

When the Lord first spoke in the Law concerning curses, he made it a point to say that he would visit upon the iniquities of “those who hate Him.” (Exodus 20:5c) As new creations in Christ, we cannot be cursed, neither do we qualify for the generational curses as no true believer can hate God. Let the truth of the finished work, set you free from the idea of Generational Curses. They do not apply to Sons of God, for our natural generations have been washed away by the blood of Jesus and we are found to go back to the generation of Life, in Jesus Christ himself.

God said that the sins of the fathers are passed down to the sons to the third and fourth generation – or even to the tenth if the child is illegitimate. Yes, we can be forgiven, but ONLY if we seek forgiveness for those sins! Generational curses are very real, but can be removed by the blood of the Lamb, but only when forgiveness is sought. For those who live under the curse of the Bastard, for example, there is no peace within the Body of Christ. For more information, please read this: (site has since closed).

THANK YOU !
I stopped a little more on Luke 9 and Luke 10. If there was prior the cross, and Jesus gave power to the disciples over the devil, we as new creations are born again (in Christ) ABOVE all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means harm us, so no witchcraft curse, no witchcraft works can affect us.
