Breaking The Curses In Our Life

Updated on June 12, 2012

The Fig Tree

In the Bible in Mark 11:20-21, we read that when Jesus came walking up to the fig tree and found no figs on it, He said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." "In the morning as they went along, they happened to look at the fig tree and noticed that it had withered from the roots up. Peter remembered and brought it to Jesus's attention "Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed the other day has withered!

Jesus had put a curse on it by speaking to it in a negative way. There is no doubt that when we speak negatively about someone or something we put a curse on it, and those curses are very real and cause many problems in many lives today even in the Christian World.

To speak an evil or negative word against someone is defined as a curse. To call for mischief or injury to fall upon: to bring evil upon or to: blast, vex, harass or torment with having some kind of great calamity in the persons life. The Bible shows us that words are not just words without meaning. God spoke the World into existence with words. They have the power of life and death in them. The tongue is the most powerful organ in the body! Words are agents sent forth to do good or evil for ourselves or others.

The curses and the blessings put into motion in Deuteronomy 27-30 were set into motion (put into effect) by being spoken out loud!

Unknown Curses

Sometimes in church people pray and believe and wait for their prayers to be answered, and they do not happen. Then, they realize that there is an unknown curse that has to be broken first. This usually comes through a Word of Knowledge that the Holy Spirit reveals there is a curse, which is involved. Once the curse is broken, there usually follows a break-through, and the prayers are answered. Many people think that just because Jesus died on the cross and that is all that is needed. Of course that is needed, but that isn't all that saves us. Pretend you have a Sears Catalogue, and someone at Sears told you everything in it is paid for. You can now order all you want, it is yours for filling out the order. Well when it comes to the Bible, every promise in it is paid for by Jesus, by what He did on the cross. Now what you have to do is order it. It does not come automatically!

Revelation 12:11 says: "They overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb AND by the word of their testimony." Not "or" their testimony, but AND their testimony.

When people cannot get free, there is ALWAYS a reason. Sometimes it is because of curses that haven't been broken through the power of the blood and the spoken word. Curses have the power to act like shields and fences around demon spirits. Once the curses are broken, then the spirits can come out. There was a woman in a church one time that was having all kinds of terrible problems happen to her in life one after another. Her children were having many ilnesses and health issues, one after another. It was tormenting her, so she told the Pastor about it, the Holy Spirit began to impress upon him that there was a curse involved somewhere. He questioned her about it, and she said that she remembered someone in the past who worked for her and she fired her for stealing. This person, before leaving put a curse on her for ten years. She just ignored it. The Bible has much to say about Curses, and the following is references for you to look up. Perhaps there will be a break-through for some who will believe so.

Different Kinds of Curses

CURSES THROUGH SIN ( Genesis 4: 2-7)

  1. Curse of the Law. (Gal. 3:10, Deut. 28)
  2. Sins of the fathers. (Numbers 14:18)

  3. Curse of illigitimate birth. (Deut 23:2)
  4. Curses of contact with witchcraft and occult things. (Deut. 18: 9-13)

These curses are passed down through the family tree and must be broken back to the TENTH generation by the power of Jesus' blood.


  1. Broken vows. Example in (Jonah 2:9, Numbers 30:2, Eccl. 5:4-6, Proverbs 6:2)
  2. Words of others: Spoken to you as a child by your parents, or others. Parent's confessions about their children are very powerful curses sometimes . Example: "You are always messing up!""What a stupid kid you are". If someone speaks something negative about you or to you, renounce it. Just say: "In the name of Jesus, I don't permit that word to have effect in my life." If you speak it about yourself, ask forgiveness to the Lord, repent of it and renounce it over yourself.


  1. Family disorder. (Malachi 4:6, Prov. 3:33)
  2. Church disorder and disobedience. (Malachi 2:2, Jer. 17:5)
  3. Giving. (Malachi 3:9)
  4. Helping in the Lord's work. (Judges 5:23, Jer. 48:10)

This is how we need to think about this. If someone ordered something for you and it was delivered to your door and you don't want to receive it, what would you do? Of course you would send it right back. That is exactly what you need to do when someone says something to you that is negative or cursing you. Put your hand up right in front of you and say "STOP", I do't receive that and I send it right back to you! "I REFUSE TO ACCEPT THAT!" Then if it is a curse upon you, do the samething. (Go to PS. 7:16 and Ps. 109:17). To break a curse go to (Galatians 3:13) and Colossians 2:14) and read it out loud. Also you can memorize them so you can answer them right away when you need too.

      Thank you Cari Jean, I am so glad that you enjoyed it and that you also believe that many of our problems are because of curses carried on down through the family and people who are not careful to use the right and positive words in conversations. Thank you so much for your input.

      I totally agree with you on everything you have written in this hub. There are many word curses I have had to break and am mindful to not put word curses on others. When someone seems to have a "run of bad luck" I automatically think they have a curse in their life that needs to be broken. Unfortunately not even Christians believe in the reality of curses therefore cannot live the abundant life that God has for them.

      Hi Disturbia, Thank you for your answer. We all have our own opinion about things. Just because we don't like that something is being discussed does not mean it doesn't exist! Just like, many people say God does not exist, yet, they can keep saying it all they want but it does not make it so. Sometimes people don't want to admit to themselves that is true, all because they don't want it to apply to them and their life. Exodus Chapters 21, 22, and 23 have many of these curses in there, with God speaking them. If we accept the Bible being His word, then we who believe must believe what He says.One other thing, I would pick another name for myself if I were you. That is a terribly negative name and you are calling yourself a disturbed person.I personally would not claim such a name, if I were you!

      This was interesting reading and obviously you have done your homework on the subject, but personally I don't believe in curses. I've got an open enough mind to allow for someone to believe they might be cursed and that this negative belief might attract negative energy. But seriously, all these curses you list here make my head spin.

      Excellent hub, on a subject that is often denied or ignored to folks peril and inconvenience, I wish more believers could know and believe in the power of idle words and outright curses.

      I have a hub with the Derek Prince video series on this subject, which takes folk through the curse they may have over them, and teaches how to renounce and cancel them.
