10 Ways of Turning Generational Curses into Generational Blessings and Getting Rid of Strong Holds... once and for all!
- personal teaching notes of Deborah Ross
1) Must be born again.
John 3:3 "...Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
Jeremiah 31:29-30, "In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge. But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge."
2) Transform our minds.
Romans 12:2 - "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, ..."
2 Corinthians 10:5 – Says, “taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ”
"And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye?"
4) REALITY CHECK ... Know the Truth
John 8:32 "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
Ezekiel 18:14-20 – You must RECOGNIZE the iniquity in your family tree and determine to do differently.
Ezekiel 18:30-32 - Turn and LIVE!!!
Call it what it is.
Repent of it.
...Repentance – (means “change”, not merely remorse)
5) GET AWAY... SEPARATE YOURSELF
(from family traditions; from family mannerisms; from family sins; from family words spoken over you; from negative family expectations; from family patterns - such as: divorce, addictions, poverty, etc.; from all soul ties) - separate yourself from a lineage of sin
Do not stop loving those family members who are in bondage, just stop all of your participation in their dysfunction.
God told Abram (Abraham) to get away from his relatives and He would bless him and his seed (his offspring).
2 Corinthians 6:17
"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you."
6) WEAR THE DEVIL OUT!
"And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time."
"And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:"
7) Walk in LOVE.
1 Corinthians 13:1-8
*Remember - Everything hinges on LOVE
8) We must appropriate (apply) the Word of God to our lives in order for God's mercy to be activated...
dictionary.com = to take to or for oneself; take possession of.
1 Samuel 15:22
"Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams."
2 John 1:3
Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.
All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, long suffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
Everyone wants God's mercy, but not everyone wants God's truth.
You can't have one without the other.
Generational Curses are broken when we live in TRUTH, OBEDIENCE and LOVE.
What INIQUITIES, GENERATIONAL CURSES, STRONG HOLDS do you recognize in YOUR family tree that need to be broken in your life?
9) PASS THE TEST... APPLY THE BLOOD OF JESUS
Revelation 12:11 - 3 things for overcoming the devil:
Blood of the Lamb - Word of Your Testimony - Love not Your Life unto the Death
10) CAST THE DEMONS OUT - Sometimes certain curses just need to have someone pray deliverance over the individual in order to cast the demon out of that person.
Mark 9:17-27 - Jesus deals with what is apparently a generational curse (verse 21). Jesus didn't have the boy confess the sins or iniquities of his ancestors, He just cast out the demons that entered in through the curse.*More notes from verses Mark 9:28-29 - Sometimes we should go into prayer and fasting before praying deliverance over certain people so that we will have faith needed to cast out certain demons.
Jesus already paid the price for YOU to be FREE when He died on the cross!
By FAITH, appropriate (apply) the blood of Jesus to YOUR LIFE and be free, once and for all!
Walk in your freedom!
Galatians 3:13, "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree
