Breaking the Curse to Heal (Part 2)

God is concerned that individual, family, national curses be broken. That's why He wiped out the Herods and dealt with the nation of Egypt again and again. But they refused to repent. So God had to judge them.

You may say, "Well, it's happening. These 'generational curses' have come down upon me and my family. How do I stop them?"

God instructed Egypt under judgment, "If you want your family to reverse the curse, you must put the blood of the lamb over the doorpost of your house. And when I see it, I will pass over you amd the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you" (Exodus 12).

Today, the blood of Jesus will reverse our individual, family, or national "generational curses!" Not psychology or psychiatry. Not money or humanism. Not powerful men or governments. It's the blood of Jesus that will save our families and nations today.

The steps to breaking the curse to heal and gain victory begin and end at the Cross.

"Jesus replied, 'I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.' " (John 8: 34-36).

"In fact the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness" (Hebrews 9:22).

"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony ..." (Revelation 12:11).

We all need to tell our children and the next gen this truth! "Hey, son/daughter, if you commit immorality or sexual sins, you're putting a curse on your self and the next generations" or "If you steal, lie, deceive or rebel against God, there's a curse that will come down upon you."

All of us don't want the curses to come down upon us, our children, our nation. We may have weaknesses in certain areas. But we can repent and stop. Allow the blood of Jesus to cleanse us and we'll be set free!
