Curses and blessings
you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
The blood of Jesus destroys all generational curses when we welcome Him into our heart and allow the Holy Spirit to in dwell.
There is only the Lie that you believe you have curses on you that needs to be dealt with.
In reality you do not have any thing on you once you have a redeemed soul born from Heaven.
This redeemed soul could not possibly carry curses.
The ecclesia in ministry and deliverance is dealing with a phantom issue if they think born again believers have curses still from before they were born.
However if we are led to believe we have curses then in a way so they become.
If I see someone across the street making what appears to be a nasty face at me I can react in two ways.
Believe it or rationally dismiss it after reflection because the poor soul was grimacing to see in the sunlight.
This is bread and butter cognitive behavioural therapy stuff.
To be cursed:-
Believers have to be within the four generations and still hate God. An unlikely and contradictory state.
To unbelievers who reject God, they are definitely impacted by curses.
In fact even a person cursing a believer today will in reality have no power unless you give them the power by accepting it.
‘As a man thinketh so it is’
What we allow into our selves will be.
But it is the mind and body playing games.
Spiritually it is impossible.
We were made in His likeness
We are Born again from ABOVE in spirit and water. Our soul is redeemed.
With the great research now gained from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder it is clear that the body and cells have memory.
Our cells can have
Positive emotional change
And negative emotional change NEC
Cellular memory is rather like the database of files on a storage disk or server.
People who have lost limbs sense the limbs are still there.
The brain is just the processor
Here the body remembers and visualised the physical existence of the limb.
So if we are reminded of events in the past, it is easy to say they still have an effect. Yes if we allow them to.
But No if we refuse to believe they do have an effect.
The ‘post hoc ergo propter hoc’ fallacy in logic is often committed by people daily.
We have to be very careful when it comes to causality.
The rooster crows immediately before sunrise; therefore the rooster causes the sun to rise.
An acorn carries all the DNA and completion of an oak tree. A pre creation package. The memory the oak tree has is in that acorn.
If we are seeds why is this not the same for us.
Believers just need to believe what Yeshua has done.
Blessings are the same. They continue. Do we need to appropriate a blessing? No
It is free to receive. If we don’t believe we are blessed then our body and soul suffer from that unbelief.
In order to appropriate something for our daily walk in Christ, there are two essentials: to see what is already ours in Christ; and to be aware of our need for it. On these two factors rests the ability to appropriate—to reach out in steadfast faith and receive that which belongs to us in our Lord Jesus Christ.
The fact that we have not recognised something that is already ours, does not mean we don’t have it.
The fact we have not seized something does not mean it is not in our grip or hand.
A gift of a bottle of excellent wine may sit on our sideboard for years. It does not mean it is not ours just because we have not appropriated all its characteristic properties, aromas and tastes of it yet.
Jesus’ s hand is outstretched to us at all times.
His mercy and forgiveness is free and His love unconditional.
Matthew 11. 28-30 is a beckoning
Who the Son sets free is free indeed.
It is a nonsense to think we are half freed by Him.
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
