I am reading a really good book right now about How to break Generational Curses in your family. The name of the book is “Break the Generation Curse”, simply written by Marilyn Hickey. I had often thought that there must be some sort of curse in my family, why else would there be 9 generations of male alcoholics in my family? Thats an aweful lot, but I had often wondered why the women really werent affected by Alcohol, but then I realized that alot of the woman in my family had abused medication. I started reading in the bible about curses in Deuteronomy 27 & 28 about the different types of curses, and who actually brings on these curses. Is it God? I wanted to know. It stated in the book, that one of the big curses comes from people who rebel against their parents. I know for me, I did alot of rebelling while I was a teenager, but I think it really means something deeper than that. There is also a curse on cruelty: “Cursed be he that maketh the blind to wander out of the way.” Deuteronomy 27:18. This is where the curse of violence is started. No wonder the “secular” world even realizes that most abuse is past down from generation to generation, alcohol, sexual, and violence.
But how do we fix this and bind these generational curses? The bible plainly states in Matthew 12:29, “or else how can one enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man? and then he will spoil his house. Note that in this scripture, house can mean generation.
So as Mrs. Hickey states, ” In order to break the curse of the generations behind us- their habits, sins, physical weaknesses- you have to go in and bind the strong man who has brought that curse from generation to generation.” Who do we call the strong man in this, Satan is he.
What does she say to say to the devil? You tell him, ” My generation doesnt belong to you because and here is the Key. I bind you in the Name of Jesus, and your not going to do it. See the key is to break that curse, In the Name of Jesus. Jesus gives us much more authority over the devil, than most people realize.
Dont however, expect the Devil to just “go away, because you binded him, he will come again over and over, and you must stand firm, and keep sending him away. You need to have on your armor for Spiritual Warfare all the time! Remember the Devil will try to put a curse on you again and again, but tell him “hey, I am not under the curse, Im under the blood of Jesus.” Head him off at the pass, and dont buy into it.
I must warn you that the Devil will come back and bring with him Seven Spirits, Matthew 12:43-45, the last spirit being the worst than the first, he will head for your children. He has been in your family generation an aweful long time, and he is not likely to just walk away because you broke the curse. Warn your children, that this is coming, and do not let the devil in, remember this is your house, and not his. Don’t let your kids get into alcohol or drugs or immorality and all that other stuff… Keep them close to you, and know what they are getting into… and if you “train up a child the right way, he will go back to what he knows…….
