Considering that I’ve written a 175-page book entitled “Curse Breaking” and our International School of Exorcism teaches at length on this topic, it’s challenging to give a simple understanding of curses; but for many unfamiliar with this concept, anything we share here is a big step forward. First, curses have power to affect anyone, including Christians. Second, the effect of curses can be eliminated by declarative, confessional prayer. Third, curses can be intentional and deliberate, such as the ritual of a witch-doctor to bring harm. They can also be unintentional, as in the case of an angry parent who blurts out to a child, “You’re a loser. You’ll never amount to anything in life.” The most important thing to know about curses is the truth of Proverbs 26:2: “An undeserved curse has no effect” (TLB). How can you make curses against you “undeserving?”
Curses come from many sources: idolatrous rituals of our pagan ancestors; acts of violence and immorality from forebears in our bloodline; words and action of those presently in authority over us. And no one is immune. Embracing faith in Christ is a strong mitigating factor. But being born-again is no guarantee that 100% of all curse consequences have been removed. The potential power to break curses is promised in Galatians 3:13 (Christ was made a “curse for us”). But that promise must be possessed by faith. It’s not automatic. Revelation 22:3 promises a time of “no more curse,” but that is future prophetic. In the now, for those who have not proactively claimed the promise that we are “redeemed” from curses (Galatians 3:13), the power of actionable, spoken, and ritualized evil can hinder a believer’s walk with God.
What’s to be done about this? Just as Romans 10:9-10 teaches salvation comes by confession and belief, so does deliverance from the power of curses. When we confess that a curse is broken and believe in our hearts by faith that it is done, a curse has no more power. Its effects may linger as we seek healing and restoration for the damage done but going forward it cannot invoke additional evil. So, if you haven’t broken curses, get started. Agree in prayer with a spouse, trusted friend, or family member, according to Matthew 18:19 which declares that prayer is effectual when two or more agree. Declare that curses are broken over whatever evil you are aware of with your ancestors. Close the doors to curses that you opened in your past, such as dabbling in the occult or New Age practices.
