Understanding The Trend And Effects of generational curses
Today I want us to take a look at some of the effects of generational curses that paralysis the innocent. In addition, I will delve a little further to explain how vulnerable each one of us is to the effects of generational curses.
Our world is surrounded by invisible forces which adversely have great influence on us. Just as the Spirit Of God has an influence on us, so as evil forces have an influence on us. I always keep on saying ‘you are responsible for your actions’ and that is factual, the bible even confirms that(You reap what you sow).
A curse or someone’s mischievous behavior can land you in great trouble. The innocent’s suffering is one of the most painful situations anyone could think of. The worse part is when the predicament becomes irreversible. It could ruin your whole life.
However, many people living today hardly understand why certain things in their lives don’t look right. Although this person is working hard and doing all the necessary things needed for him perfectly. But there could be a perpetuation of back luck or something deviant or abnormal which happens to be some kind of mystery. You did nothing wrong but can sense some sort of punishment in your life. You need a breakthrough.
Despite this truth, there happens to be an exception which actually defines one’s responsibilities to his actions or foolishness. The innocent could unknowingly pay for someone’s foolishness in a form of severe hardship/punishment. There is one popular African proverb (Akan);
“The Lizard has eaten pepper for the frog to sweat”.
There are forces (good or evil) which give some kind of punishment to the descendants of trespassers. You might be one kind facing the consequences and repercussions of someone’s foolishness. Someone certainly in your family or very close to you did that.
Curses And Its Effects From the Bible
Looking through the old testament; After the flood receded, God’s children incurred curses unto themselves. Why?. Because they did something silly and ungodly. God blesses and curses when it is necessary and he is always right. The devil and even people around us can curse but can never give blessings that revives the soul and the body.
Bear in mind, a curse doesn’t mean ‘to use bad language’. It simply means that someone says, ‘He wants bad things to happen to you.’ And by saying that, it is likely evil forces will captivate on that and use it against you. There are good and evil in the power of the tongue.
Drawing our attention to the curses and its effects from the bible.
I would cite Noah and his children as an example.
“And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brethren without. And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness. And Noah awoke from his wine and knew what his younger son had done unto him. And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.”(Genesis 9:22-25).
Indeed, the curse manifested. This enslavement of the Canaanites surely fulfilled the prophetic curse put on their ancestor Canaan by his grandfather, Noah. I believe this is the beginning of the effects of generational curses.
God’s Anger Resulted In Curses
On the other hand, God first cursed the first man and woman in the garden of Eden. So, specifically, this is the first curse on mankind. But let me ask; does that curse still work today?. For sure, since women still go through severe pains during labor and men sweat before they eat from the land, then it is some of the effects of generational curses we see today. (Genesis 3:16-17).
Who can withstand God’s fearsome anger?. He is slow to anger and everything he does is right. If mankind would keep on being disobedient to him, then man will face the wrath of God in full at the end of this world.
Despite God’s curses he still loves us and will never forsake his Children who call unto him. The way, the truth, and life are found in Christ Jesus who came to die for us.
The People, Evil Forces And Society’s Influence
Citing Africa as an example, there is a high level of Spiritualism. Traditional worship and belief in evil forces, superstitions etc. have not ceased. Wicked people together with aggrieved people can render curses on someone and his entire family or descendants.
I surely know what I’m talking about and it is so real. Someone’s calamity might be the result of a father, grandfather etc. who did something foolish to incur curses on his innocent children, family or descendant at large.
An innocent descendant has to face all sort of life challenges such as barrenness, marital problems, diseases and sickness, financial constraints etc. They wouldn’t understand until they get to know the truth.
Thanks be to God who loves his children so much. He can set the innocent free through his son Christ Jesus. You can break the curse. If any Christian believer is paying for the sins and foolishness of someone in the family or very close, God can end it all.
Advise To Our New Generation
The little advise I would like everyone to note is; “Never do evil unto your fellow human”.The aggrieved person can curse you, your family and your whole descendants. And I know God will allow the curse to manifest because you haven’t listened to his word. Learn how to say ‘sorry’ to anyone you offend, make peace with the one you have offended to avoid any curses. The tongue is very powerful.
Through Christ Jesus, all the effects of generational curses in your life, marriage, and family could be nullified. Call unto him and he will listen. God can heal you from above and set you free from the bondage of undeserved curse.
On the other hand, if you do his will, he will bless you and multiply your descendants like the stars in heaven and the sands on the shores just like he did for Abraham and Jacob(Israel).
