Understanding Generational Curses

Updated on October 5, 2015

A Generational curse is a defilement or spiritual bondage that has been passed down from generation to generation.For instance, a father might have a problem with uncontrolled lust for women, his son also gets affected by the same, and the grandfather happens to have had the same problem. Or one realizes that they are not the only ones in the family affected by uncontrolled anger but also their dad and mum as well.The Christian bible in Exodus 34: 7 puts to clarity the fact that all human live under the curse of God on Adam and Eve. This paper seeks to determine how generational curses affect the life of human being.

Discussion

In the book of lamentations 5:7, the bible says “Our ancestors sinned and are no more, and we bear their punishment.” This means that certai things which happen to our lives happen because of the sins of our forefathers. This however does not only happen in the way the scriptures explain, but in our daily lives. Drug-addicted fathers and mothers tend to have children with drug addictions or related social problems, and this cycle is extremely hard to break.

Proverbs 26:6 says: Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest. Even though proverbs is not always considered to be “hard and fast truths, this article contends that all Christians can be easily affected by curses or any other cult or demonic practices, especially if they open themselves up to such influences. Most Christians tend to believe in spiritual warfare either in one form or the other. And while Christians believe that trough Christ they can always overcome these attacks, they should also believe the fact that they can experience the effects of these attacks.

Even though generational curses are real and they do affect human lives in several ways, there are several verses in the bible that make it clear that by the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross, people do not need to live under the influence of these curses anymore.Colosians 1:13 says: For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the son he loves. Having cancelled the charge of our legal indebtness which stood against us and condemned us, he has taken away nailing it to the cross, and having disarmed the power and authorities (demons) he made us a public spectacle of them, triumph upon them by the cross. Meaning we are no longer bound by any demons or curses as long as we believe in Jesus. Galatians 3:13 continues with a similar argument: But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. He did take upon himself the curse for our transgression.

fTo the larger extend, it is evident from the above discussion that curses do have an effect on human life. But this does not include those who believe in Jesus Christ the son of our Heavenly father because these are saved by the blood that he shed on the cross on their behalf. As such, every living person is advised to give their lives to Jesus in order to inherit and share in this wonderful life that Jesus offers to those that believe in him.
