Are you cursed? Do you suspect that someone has put a spell on you? An ex-lover or ex-spouse? An in-law? A Co-worker? An Ancestor? A parent? To fight back, you must first understand how a curse operates. The biggest source of curses usually involves a generational root of evil. Many people have such unbroken curses. This should not surprise us too much. Every one of us inherited the curse of original sin from Adam and Eve. Even after we break that curse through our relationship with Jesus Christ by salvation, the spiritual effect of that original sin from our ancestors can sometimes have a limiting effect on our lives.
Every single person has individuals in his or her past who committed great evil. A renegade or pervert is perched on a branch of your family tree. You may not have to go back very far to find someone that’s evil; just show up at your next family reunion and look around. This does not mean you are eternally damned because of generational or family evil. But you can suffer needlessly in this life—until the ancestral iniquity is renounced, and its power is broken by claiming the blood of Jesus over it. This is what we call curse breaking. First, name the person and/or their deeds if you have that information. Declare yourself free from their genetically transmitted evil. Then renounce ALL the unknown evil of ALL your ancestors. Declare that henceforth you are spiritually cut off from all wickedness of your forebears.
If you are hesitant about breaking curses, here is a word of advice. Most churches don’t preach this concept so it is understandable that you might be reluctant. But consider this. Even if you are a good person, even one of the most Christ-centered people around, don’t gauge yourself by how well you think you’re doing spiritually. Instead, focus on how much better you might be doing. One of the fallacies of the Christian life is that we judge ourselves by how well we’re getting along, not by how much more we might do for the Lord. Think about the greater freedom you might enjoy if your curses get broken. Don’t settle for less than the best. Don’t wait until it takes a crisis to force you to seek help to break curses. Take action now. Our books and the training of Bob Larson University can help. Arrange a face-to-face encounter or consult one of our associate ministers. Whatever path you take to breaking curse, get started. Don’t let one more day amplify the power of a curse that can be easily broken.
