Andrew Wommack’s Generational Curses


WHAT IS A GENERATIONAL CURSE?

Written by Barry Bennet

What is a Generational Curse?

How often have we heard Christians talking about the need to break generational curses?  Much of what has been taught on this subject borders on unbelief.  Believers that concentrate on curses do not understand the realities of the finished work of the cross.  People are not defeated in life due to being cursed as much as they are perishing due to their lack of knowledge of the Lord.

This is why Jesus said, “Go ye teaching” and did not say, “Go ye breaking curses.”  It is the Truth that sets us free, not some kind of mystical deliverance session.

Jesus has already been made a curse for us and has already blessed us (Gal. 3:13)!  And, what is more, God was in Christ, reconciling the whole world to Himself, not holding man’s trespasses against him (2 Cor. 5:19). God is not holding sins or curses against anyone!

What are commonly referred to as generational curses today are really nothing more than the works of the flesh listed in Galatians 5:19-21.

“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,  Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,  Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like. (Gal. 5:19-21)

The manifestations of the flesh should not surprise us.  We are the product of our fallen society, culture, false religions, customs and morals taught us by our families, and tendencies we have learned from others.  If the parents were alcoholics there may be a tendency for the children to adopt the same behavior, but many children do not.  If anger and wrath were a part of the home environment, the same tendencies can be carried over to the children’s homes when they are adults, but in many cases those tendencies are rejected.

While some call these generational curses, we should see them as strongholds that must be torn down by the renewing of the mind.  It is the truth that sets us free.

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” (2Co 10:4-5)

As born again sons and daughters of God, we are equipped to defeat the works of the flesh by the Spirit and cleanse our minds from the patterns of the past.  It is our willful choosing of God’s ways, words, thoughts and actions that will replace the strongholds we have known.  Over time, new patterns of the Spirit are established and we are able to walk free from the bondages of the past.

The Old Testament verses that refer to generational curses were spoken to Israel while under the Law, and referred to what would happen to those who hate Him (see Deut. 5:8-10).  What we can conclude by these verses is that God had made a statement concerning the consequences of sin upon succeeding generations “of them that hate me” under the Law.  This has nothing to do with new creation believers!

“Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son.”  (Col. 1:13)

There are no curses in the Kingdom of God.  Only promises that are “yes” and “amen!”

I Think My Granny is Getting Dressed for the Big Trip Back

 
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will BRING WITH HIM THOSE WHO SLEEP in Jesus. 
I Thes 4:13
~~
Six New Revelations by Dake Commentary
All who die in Jesus will be brought back from heaven to be given resurrected bodies (1Th. 4:14; Jn. 5:28-29 1Cor. 15:20-23,35-58 Php. 3:21). 
The living in Christ at this time will not die but be changed (1Th. 4: 15-17 1Cor. 15:51-58 2Cor. 5:1-10 Php. 3:21). 
This is the coming of the Lord in the air, not His coming to the earth (1Th. 4:15-17 2Th. 2:7, note; Rev. 4:1, note). 
The Lord Himself, not some other one, shall descend from heaven to translate the saints (1Th. 4:16; Jn. 14:1-3 1Cor. 15:23,51-58 Php. 3:21). 
The dead in Christ shall rise first before the living are changed (1Th. 4:16; 1Cor. 15:23,51-58 Php. 3:21; Jn. 5:28-29). 
The church and all in Christ from Abel to this time will be changed from mortality to immortality in body in a moment and will be caught up (raptured) with the dead in Christ to meet the Lord in the air (1Th. 4:17; Jn. 14:1-3 Lk. 21:36; 1Cor. 15:23,51-58 Php. 3:21; 2Cor. 5:1-10 Col. 3:4; 2Th. 2:7, note; Eph. 5:27). 1 Thessalonians 4:13

Free Masons

Freemasonry

Exposed: Witchcraft in the Church
 
When I visited England for my first time, back in the 90s, I discovered that many Freemasons were actually elders in a great number of churches across the United Kingdom. I then came to an understanding that this secret society is in almost every nation. Freemasonry is in fact a Luciferian cult, although most Freemasons do not realize this. They are initiated into each level through rituals where they actually pronounce curses on their lives and their family if they divulge the secrets of the society. In each initiation, they swear to more commitments and more curses. What most do not realize is that the enemy is taking their vows seriously even though they might not be. Evil spirits then take “legal license”[7] to control through them at the point of initiation. Most Freemasons simply believe it’s a brotherhood that will help them in their business affairs and other life matters while giving them the opportunity to work on diverse benevolent projects. They don’t realize they are becoming possessed and controlled by evil spirits that gradually deceive them in greater degrees of darkness. Because of their status in society, many Freemasons are elected onto church boards as directors, elders, or deacons, and the spirits in them influence decisions. Many government leaders, law enforcement and judicial leaders, and influential businessmen are connected to and influenced by this entity.

Definition of Witchcraft

WITCHCRAFT IS “Any manipulation or operation in the realm of the spirit that is NOT under the direction and influence of Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit. Even unredeemed man has dominion over the physical realm according to Genesis 1:28, but ONLY those in Christ have legal rights to experience and exercise dominion in the spiritual dimension according to the guideline of God’s Word and the leading of the Holy Spirit.”

Jesus Deals With Demons

They Shall Expell Demons

Jesus dealing with Demons.

Jesus had been preaching in Galilee, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand” (Mark 1:15). Now He had to demonstrate the superiority of His Kingdom over the kingdom of Satan. There are six important points to notice.

First, Jesus dealt with the demon, not with the man. The demon spoke out of the man, and Jesus spoke to the demon. Literally translated, what Jesus said to the demon was, “Be muzzled!”

Second, Jesus expelled the demon from the man, not the man from the synagogue.

Third, Jesus was in no way embarrassed by the interruption or disturbance. Dealing with the demon was part of His total ministry.

Fourth, the demon spoke in both singular and plural forms: “Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are. . .” (verse 24). This response is characteristic of a demon speaking for itself and on behalf of others. The demon in the man in Gadara used the same form of speech: “My name is Legion; for we are many” (Mark 5:9).

Fifth, it is reasonable to assume that the man was a regular member of the synagogue, but apparently no one knew he needed deliverance from a demon. Perhaps even the man himself did not know. The anointing of the Holy Spirit on Jesus forced the demon out into the open.

Sixth, it was this dramatic confrontation with a demon in the synagogue that launched Jesus into His public ministry. He became known to His fellow Jews first and foremost as the Man with unique authority over demons.
