Don’t Give the Devil the Right to Curse You


I have some important advice. Don’t give the devil the right to curse you. This statement raises
two important questions: 1) Can the devil have the right to curse you, even if you are a
Christian? And 2) What is the right that you must remove? Deliverance 101 begins with an
understanding that the only way which Satan can attack your life is if he has the right. This is
known among those who cast out demons as a “legal right.”

The devil may have permission to torment your life in some way and to some degree. Who
granted that right? Perhaps you did by willful sin, especially dabbling in witchcraft and the
occult. In addition, as I point out in my book “Curse Breaking,” ancestral sins give certain legal
rights to Satan. These may include conjuring spirits, idolatry, making compacts with the devil,
even dedicating future generations to Satan. As both Exodus 20:5 and Numbers 14:18 declare,
the guilt of iniquity is passed on to the “third and to the fourth generation.” In fact, that Hebraic
phrase means perpetuity, forever. Only under the New Covenant of grace can this curse be
broken. This is how Satan can curse you with the evil deeds of your ancestors.

What is the right that you must remove to cancel Satan’s evil plans for your life? That depends
on your own history of moral and spiritual rebellion, as I stated above. If you contact a credible
deliverance minister, they’ll know all about this. If you reach out to our ministry, I can meet you
in person, or virtually, or we can refer you to an associate minister. The curse-breaking
procedure is to repent of your own sins and those of your forebears. Then, verbally cancel all
curses that may be attached to those acts of disobedience and spiritual rebellion, known and

Can you do this yourself? Yes, but not as effectively. Over and over in the Bible the principle of
agreement between one individual and another person of faith is emphasized. Jesus said in
Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the
midst of them” (KJV). Deuteronomy 19:15 establishes this injunction: “At the mouth of two
witnesses or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established” (KJV). First
Timothy 5:19 adds this: “Do not entertain an accusation against an elder unless it is brought by
two or three witnesses.” Finally, when Jesus sent out his disciples to cast out demons it was
“two by two” and in this way He “gave them power over unclean spirits” (Mark 6:7 (KJV).

If you think that at least some things in your life might be the results of a curse, consider these
two things I established earlier. Satan may have a legal right, and if he does you must get the
right kind of help to adequately remove that right. Don’t put off seeking prayer. You have no
idea how much your life may be hindered physically, financially, emotionally, and spiritually until
you begin to break the curses which are there because the devil has a right. Cancel that right

An Encouraging Word


In Psalm 17:6 David declares, “I have called upon You, for you will hear me, O God.” It’s easy to gloss over those words and miss an important point. The key here is that David called, he did something. He exercised his faith to reach out to God. He didn’t see prayer as useless or pointless. He acted upon his faith. God was there and He would answer. Some folks complain about what God doesn’t do for them. They sit back passively and wonder why things don’t go better, that somehow God should take the initiative to intervene in their lives without being invited. But the eternal plan of prayer is for you and me to call upon the Lord. If you haven’t had an answer to prayer, it may be that you haven’t asked. Call upon Him today and see what happens.
