Dealing With Curses

God has designed us for blessing, but often we find ourselves walking in anything but blessing.  This lesson shows you the source and operation of curses in your life, which are designed by the enemy to negate the blessing of God.

You will learn how to identify the signs of a curse in your life, and how to break curses and release the blessing that is your inheritance in the Lord.

Question:

Dealing With Curses:
 4.  Keep free of contamination
  Associations with relatives.
 
 Could you explain this further from scripture?  Are you suggesting there be no association with unsaved relatives? 

Nancy

Answer:

This is explained in some detail in Chapter Six of the Way of Blessing Book, or the Online Course.  The majority of curses in fact often come, not from unsaved relatives alone, but from saved relatives who are operating under a family generational curse.

The disassociation which is taught here refers not so much to physical separation, but to spiritual separation, or keeping one's spirit free of contamination.  This is accomplished by keeping your heart closed to any influence which can open the door for the entry of such a curse into your life.  There are only two factors that open the door wide for you to receive a curse by contamination from another.  They are as follows:

1.  Opening your heart to another and receiving all that comes from their spirit without discerning the nature of what you are receiving.

2.  Maintaining a heart of anger or bitterness to another, thus giving them control over you through the attitude of your heart.  

 
This is a difficult issue for many to accept, and as a result curses are passed down from generation to generation, and family to family.  This need not be the case, because in Christ we do not need to be subject to such curses, but are set free by the power of the blood and the word of our testimony, as it says in
 
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb, and by means of the word of their testimony; and they did not love their [psuche] lives even if it led to death.(GMR)
 
The first clear Scripture that speaks of family generational curses and blessings is
 

Exodus 20:5 You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD [Yahweh] your God [am] a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth [generation] of those that hate me;
6 And showing mercy to thousands of those that love me, and keep my commandments.
(GMR)

 
There are also passages in the New Testament that speak of contamination from others
 
1 Timothy 5:22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be a partaker of other men's sins: keep yourself pure.(GMR)
 
Hebrews 12:15 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble [you], and by it many be defiled;(GMR)
 
These are just a few isolated Scriptures on the subject, but if you wish to have a full Scriptural layout of the principles involved, we recommend that you order the Way of Blessing Book or enroll in the Way of Blessing Course.  You will be given plenty of Scripture to explain the principles involved.
