Breaking Generational Curses:
(Content from the book: Breaking Curses, Including Breaking Generational Curses)
“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: ‘Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree,’” Galatians 3:13
Part 1 of Chapter 10: What are generational curses? Who’s the source of generational curses?
What are generational curses?
Chapter 1 defined what curses are. It’s advised that you read the foundational chapters to this book before reading this chapter.
Having defined what curses are in Chapter 1 we can speedily define what generational curses are from a true biblical perspective. Generational curses are curses assigned to an individual(s) based on the sins of his/her parents. The person’s parents, not himself, are the cause of curses assigned to him/her. A person gets punished for the wrongs of the parents. Such are called generational curses.
Because a child is a “product” of both his/her parents generational curses can come from both parents. This can be the case if each parent has a sin that merits a generational punishment. Generational curses can basically be called generational punishments.
Who's the source of generational curses, i.e. causing generational curses?
Generational curses are not a result of familiar spirits. Some fellow beliers preach that familiar spirits are the source of generational curses.
Familiar spirits are discussed in another chapter of this book. How this association with familiar spirits came up among some “deliverance ministries” is very strange. This is because in regard to generational curses it is God who said he’d visit each generation under his curse (Exodus 20:5)
“You shall not bow down to them (idols) or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,” Exodus 20:5 (emphasis added).
He said this in the second commandment which forbids idolatry. He did not say he would assign evil spirits from Satan to do the work. The idea of evil spirits bringing generational curses is therefore way off the scriptures. God is therefore the source of generational curses.
No matter which prominent preacher you hear from that is saying evil spirits bring generational curses he/she is speaking in err. Excuse them for being in err on this area and press forward to listen or read other areas where they’re in line with scripture.
