  • Rose on Isaiah 52
    I'm a born again Christian for a few years now. I'm still try to understand salvation, and I need help. How do I break generational curses? I get dreams of setback all the time. Thank you and God bless you

    Rose I prayed and ask God to allow me to be a help to you,, there is no need to break any curse because Jesus Broke Every Curse that mattered on Calvary when He said "It is Finished",, i myself have had times when my faith has been shaken and i have heard of false teachers as well as false preaching, which claims that if you ever doubt your salvation,, you are lost. This is simply Not true, to me the best test of a True Believer is this ,,, "A TRUE BELIEVER WILL NEVER DENY THAT ONLY THROUGH CHRIST BLOOD CAN THEY BE SAVED",, so Rose i hope you ask God to give you final peace, not based on what any man told you but what You Truly Believe in your heart, the dying thief believed and was saved,, Only Believe, That Jesus is and is a rewarder of those who Believes in Him.

    Hello Rose, Like Suze, I do not think the Scriptures support "generational curses". We suffer from the decisions made by our predecessors or there can be genetic predispositions or familial tendencies passed down. These are not curses, but results of our fallenness.

    When we come to Christ and are converted, the Holy Spirit makes us a new creation in Christ. So, we are no longer enslaved by any off these things that are inherited or passed on by family example. We can have victory over them through the work of the Holy Spirit in us. For some people, they have instant deliverance. For others, one needs to persevere in prayer, faith, and walking by the Spirit.

    Some things that are genetically inherited that are medical in nature may be with us all of our life. But we have the hope of the next life where these things will be totally eradicated from our beings.

    Well, dear Rose, some go to an imaginatory trial.

    The Judge is Father God. The person accused is me, you, every human being You are accused that you broke the law, God's Law, that is you sinned and kept sinning in all of your life. The verdict is that you are guilty. The Judge Father God announcers the penalty. The penalty is Death, since the wage of sin is death, that is everybody who sins suffers a physical and a spiritual death as well. The spiritual death is the eternal sepatation from God (hell). At that very moment somebody in the audience that is attending the trial shouts to the Judge " Dear Sir, my name is Jesus Christ, if you and the accused person accept my offer, I would like to pay the penalty me myself and the accused person to be freed. The Judge Father God accepts that. It is now a decision for the accused person to accept that offer or not. If he accepts it he is freed and Jesus takes his place, if he doesn't then he must be sentenced himself. This is what Jesus did on the cross. As a representative of all mankind of all ages paid the penalty for the sins done by all people, once for all. Everybody who believes in Jesus work and accepts the offer/the freedom/the salvation that is offered becomes free and acceptable by God in his eternal kingdom. If smd doesn't then the prison awaits for him.

    I tried to make it as simple as possible, hope you understand it .

    Now there isn't a stop jere. You must walk with Jesus from now on. A walk of pure life, and if you din, because we are humans and we will eventually sin sometime, then you ask for forgiveness and raise op and keep walking.

    There are no generational curses for christians. Jesus's blood is a shield against them.

    As far as your dreams are concerned you are the person who knows the answer. Do you have setbacks? If yes then repent and start going forward (do not feel much guilty, everybody has setbacks). If not maybe those dreams are either from a guilty consious or maybe from satan?

    GBU

    When we admit to ourselves and to others that we are not in control of our lives or the lives of others. We must turn every aspect of our life over to him. To trust only in him. This is hard because our Ego and Ego of others will want to stand in the way of him. Our Ego says there is no God. Our Ego says God does not love or care for us. Our Ego is like the serpent that temps us to do bad things to ourselves and others. Be of good cheer and know God wants you to trust in Him because he truly does love you and wants a loving personal relationship with you.

    Jesus said, "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you." ( John 15:7) "whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them." ( Mark 11:23-24)

    After my salvation, the Holy Spirit had me clear out my house of any item I had that had anything to do with occult. I had to burn them. Acts 19:19. I cannot express the change in my house the next day. Peace.

    Ask the Holy Spirit to go through your house with you.

    Confront the past, and just let it all go. Ask God for an angel to guard your house for a while. Your life now is hidden within Christ. He is yours; you are his. Song of Solomon. "I am My Beloveds__My Beloved is Mine".

    As a Christian of many years , I don't believe in curses . You can curse me all you like it won't work ! It's all psychological bunkum designed to freak you out . If you had read and understood the Bible you would know that if you belong to God you need not fear anything or anyone other than God Himself . Please , read your Bible and listen to it and not to people who are of no consequence .

    Suze, I agree with you. I do not believe in generational curses either.

    We do suffer from the decisions made from our predecessors and there can be hereditary tendencies or illnesses passed on through families genetically or by upbringing and example. But these are not curses. This is fallenness.
  • Suze - in Reply on Isaiah 52
    Amen to that Gigi , may God bless you .

    Every born-again believer is born a babe in Christ with a need to grow in the Lord to better overcome sins, failures, doubts, troubles, and so forth in life. The key to growth and victory over sin is walking with God. Walking with God is simply seeking His guidance through prayer, Bible study, fellowship and determination. Pray constantly for God's help and daily deliverance and never give up. That is it in a nutshell.

    May I suggest you reflect on Romans 10:9-13, Ephesians 2:8-9, Philippians 2:12-13.

    Please consider praying this prayer:

    Lord Jesus Christ I declare you are my Savior! I renounce any involvement in the world of darkness. I cancel every curse and ask you to forgive those who spoke them against me. I proclaim liberty from every generational curse that existed in my bloodline. I repent for opening doors to Satan. I repent for any of my family sins. I declare every generational curse is made void by the Blood of Jesus Christ. I command every generational curse that has manifests itself as sickness, depression, failed marriages, poverty, confused identity, addictions or shady behaviors to be uprooted and broken off me and my family, in Jesus name. Thank you God for setting me free from every curse in Jesus Christ name!!
