It is important to take any horrible trending event in your family with all seriousness, because it might be a family curse that must be broken immediately.

How does Family Curse Arises?

A generational curse has its origin from the sins of the fore fathers. Obedience attracts Blessings, but disobedience leads to curse which can extend from one generation to another generation.

For instance, the Lord told the Israelites that they would enjoy the blessings listed from verse 3 to 14 of Deuteronomy chapter 28, but their disobedience will attract the curses recorded in verse 16 to 68.

Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God…

“…But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you…”

Adam and Eve disobeyed the instruction of the LORD and they were cursed. But thanks to Jesus Christ for His obedience to the instructions of redemption which gave us deliverance and blessings today.

Romans chapter 5 verses 14 and 15: “Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded to many.”

Family curse arises in your home, because you engaged in the same sin or disobedience committed by your great or grandparents.

Is God involved in Family Curse?

Please I don’t want you to be confused with the wrong teachings out there. God is not the author of Family curse!

God is not interested in afflicting us with family curses and that was the reason for the death of Jesus on the cross.

Many ignorant people quotes Exodus chapter 34 verses 6 and 7 as a reference that God puts curse on them.

And the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and There are many men who are suffering from this order is unable to produce an offspring. abounding in goodness and truth, “keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”

But I want you to do a careful study of the book of Ezekiel chapter 18:

…The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself…For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord GOD. “Therefore turn and live!”

Devil and his demons are the striking players sustaining the goals of family curse in peoples’ lives. And, their main tactics is to lure each generation into the same sin that produces the particular curse.

How to get deliverance from Family Curse

You don’t need to pay a penny to anyone for breaking any family curse. Follow the points below and the terrible family trends such as; irrational fear, depression, divorce, incurable sickness, poverty, untimely death and other similar family curses shall be broken.

1. Identify the Sins 

Find out your family history and identify the common sin your past generations had committed. Do a thorough research to understand the origin. It might be as a result of witchcraft, cheat, carelessness or other spiritual involvements.

2. Ask for Forgiveness

Devil will not want you to carry out this step with all your heart, because it is the first bomb shell. He might deceive you that your family curse is not spiritual but something else.

Ask God with all your heart to forgive your past generations and to also forgive you for committing same or similar sin. Stop the sinful practice immediately!  “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?” (Romans 6:1)

3. Kneel at the foot of Jesus

If your life is not hot for the Lord, then you have to take your salvation very serious. How? Surrender your lifestyle to the Lord Jesus. You must be ready to obey all the instructions of the LORD that would guide you to live a sinless life.

Confessing your sins and obeying the instructions of the Lord with all your heart is a terrible blow that hits the demons responsible for your family curse.

4. Faithful Prayers breaks Family Curse

There is no shortcut to stop the generational curse than to start faithful prayers. This fourth step gives you the ability to take authority from the devil.

You have to dedicate some days for prayers and fasting. The Holy Spirit will guide you on how to select the prayer points.

You must mention the entire curses one after the other and break them by the Authority of the Lord Jesus.

Pray loudly that all the demons manifesting in your family through the sinful loopholes should leave you and your family in the Name above all names – Jehovah. And, pray that the Spirit of the Lord should control your heart and your spouse and children.

“…that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:10-11)

5. Marry the Bible

At this point you are delivered, but your feet must be strengthened in this new path of righteousness. The Word of God is your Strength.

 Yes! You have chased out the demons, but they will come back in a deceptive form and whisper for permission to come into your family affairs. The best response to them is the Word of God. Since you can’t give what you don’t have you must be reading the Bible day and night.

This will orient you to know the wonderful promises of GOD for your life, the Power of Salvation you are entitled to, the great authority you have over the devil and his demons and the extent of deliverance you will enjoy after the family curse is broken.

When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first…” (Matthew 12:43-45)
