What are Generational Curses

Deliverance Generational Curses

Generational curses are sins of the forefathers but does not have to be yours but there is a bent to participate with the sin.

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: ‘Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree,’” Galatians 3:13

Revelations 22:3 "And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:"

We see there are curses to attend with until Satan is destroyed.

Generational curses are curses assigned to an individual(s) based on the sins of his/her parents. The person’s parents, not himself, are the cause of curses assigned to him/her. A person gets punished for the wrongs of the parents. Such are called generational curses.

Generational curses can come from both parents. This can be if each parent has unrepentative sin. Generational curses act like familiar spirits traveling down the family tree.

An Example of a Generational curse in the Bible as seen in the life of Abraham:

Abraham travels to Egypt to escape to drought and tells Sarah to lie to Pharaoh because she was beautiful, and he was afraid he would be killed. Sarah agrees to lies but Pharaoh finds out the truth in a dream. It was out of fear, fear of man that he lied.

Abraham does it again – he travels to the land of the Philistine (Gaza strip) and lies to Abimeleck. She says the same thing to Sarah and Sarah agrees to lie.

His son Isaac, travels with Rebecca (Gaza Strip) and they both lie to Abimeleck. He says the exact same thing to Abimeleck and Rebecca as his father Abraham did 40 years earlier.

Abraham and Isaace taught their wives to lie. Rebecca lies later to Isaac with his son when it was time to bless Essah and Jacob.

4th generations – now jacob’s sons lied to Jacob about Joseph being killed by an animal when he was sold for slavery. 10 sons are liars and are fearful.

Satan is the executor of the curse of the law

Christ didn’t do away with the law. He fulfilled it – Matthew 5:17 “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.”

Jesus made it possible for you to be free of your disobedience, so you could be free of the executor. That is what he did on the cross for us was make a way for our disobedience when we sin.

How to do it? Appropriate through obedience!

Exodus 20:5 “Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”

In ministry it is clearly observed that what has been in a family tree is currently in the lives of people; same sin issues, same disease.


God wants to know what you are going to do with creation.


Deuteronomy 28 is the great chapter on blessings and cursings that affect you (mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, relationally, and financially).

Where does Disease Come From?

Disease is a type and shadow of Satan’s kingdom. It comes from Egypt and not Zion. Example, every time you go to a new doctor, don't they ask about your family history of diseases? Those are generational curses because of the sins of the forefathers.

Deductive reasoning

Disease is a curse, not a blessing (even today). The response of sick people, when asked if they consider their disease a blessing or a curse, some said curse (good answer, the Bible agrees); some said it’s from God (then why are you going to the doctor?). Those people don’t have an answer for disease, and they’re giving God credit to increase their spirituality. No, that’s ignorance.

Conclusion: Disease is a curse

The only way to break it is in your generation

Psychologists have been able to document that many of our personality characteristics including rage, anger, predisposition to mental disorders and certain diseases can be found in humans without any genetic component, but it can still be inherited. There is not a genetic or a defective gene that has been isolated, but the condition is still passed on in families. We consider those situations to be inherited familiar spirits that follow families to create various breakdowns in the psyche or the soul.

Cause and Effect

If you don’t allow the Holy spirit to bring you to a place of repentance then God has no more to do.

The Pattern for Freedom

Neh. 9:1-2 “1Now in the twenty and fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, and with sackclothes, and earth upon them. 2 And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all strangers, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers.

Final Charge

To encourage the church to bring people back into repentance

To help encourage others to look at generational curses

Do a family tree chart for four generations.

List all mental predispositions, sins and tragedies and find out what is flowing from generation to generation.

If the flow is not stopped, it will flow into you and into your children and your grandchildren.

How does one get rid of generational curse?

You read Deuteronomy Ch: 27 and Ch. 28 and make list and take responsibility

You then take responsibility for your sin and forefathers and repent and renounce for your sin and their sins back to Adam and Eve.

Next you remove the sin by casting out the spirit of alcoholism or whatever it might be.

Say "I take this curse and cover it with the Blood of Jesus." (It is now washed away.)
