Breaking Generational Curses - Wednesday April 8, 2015
Memorise: And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron, Because ye believed me not, to sanctify me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore ye shall not bring this congregation into the land which I have given them. - Numbers 20:12
Read: 2 Kings 5:25-27
25 But he went in, and stood before his master. And Elisha said unto him, Whence comest thou, Gehazi? And he said, Thy servant went no whither.
26 And he said unto him, Went not mine heart with thee, when the man turned again from his chariot to meet thee? Is it a time to receive money, and to receive garments, and oliveyards, and vineyards, and sheep, and oxen, and menservants, and maidservants?
27 The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.
Bible in One Year: Malachi 1-4, Mathew 16:13-28
The sin of one man can sometimes lead to national disasters and tragedy (Joshua 7:1-5). One person's sin can also bring trouble to generations unborn. The story of how Gehazi became leprous in our Bible reading buttresses this fact. With the recent innovation in science, scientists believe that problems in the genes of a great grandfather can be seen in the genes of his offspring. The Goodnews is that once you give your life to Christ, you automatically become a member of God's family. A curse is like a river that flows downstream. It begins from its source and is passed down to the other people. I decree in the Name of Jesus and through the authority vested in me as the minister of the gospel, that every generational curse still operating in your life be broken now.
The idolatry of Ahab and his family brought untold hardship and agony to a lot of people for three and half years (1 Kings 18:17-18). This is why you must learn to accept your faults anytime you are rebuked for your sins, because the eyes of the Lord are too holy to behold iniquity. A foolish person thinks that he or she is always right. One of the first things a mathematician learns is that it is possible for you to be wrong. I know that I can be wrong. When anything goes wrong. I quickly check myself. Because a fool thinks that he is always right, he hates correction and instruction. A refusal to readily accept and admit your faults might lead to untold anguish and agony at the end.
At a point in time, King David sinned against the Lord because he conducted a census without God's permission (1 Chronicles 21). God was unhappy with this, and when the punishment came, thousand of people died. What a national tragedy! This is why we must always pray for the people in power, because whatever decision they take have far-reaching effects on the entire citizenry. The consequence of a generational curse is terrible. A curse normally begins to destroy from the root, and a lot of damage is done before it is noticeable. Barrenness in business can be as a result of curse. Joblessness and lack of progress could be due to a curse. When someone is always almost succeeding but never succeeds, it is the sign of a curse. Some people repeatedly gather money to build a house or start a project, but as soon as they begin executing their plans, a problem comes up that takes all the gathered money away. This also is indicative of a curse. As a mouthpiece of the most High, I decree blessings to replace every curse in your life in Jesus' Name.
Key Point: Obedience brings the blessings of the Lord
