Bastard's curse

Bastard's Curse

Deut. 23:2: "A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the Lord."

In ministry, we have found the Bastard's Curse present when a person was conceived or born out of wedlock. Somehow children are curious about their parents' wedding date and correspondence to their birthday. Other times, it is obvious in that there was never a marriage. Spirits of rejection, abandonment and fear come into the child in the womb under these circumstances.

There is a difference in conceiving a child out of covenant and one out of lust.

The child when conceived out of lust, knows whether or not they were a wanted baby. There is usually shame and guilt associated with their parents' behavior. Not only that but secrets.

What comes in when a child is born out of wedlock is generatons of evil spirits that have been plaguing families trying to love in all the wrong places.

The problem is a child will grow up with an addiction to need to be loved.

If this is true in your life, it is important to forgive your mother and father for their sin and how it has effected you. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, you are now a son or daughter of God, and you are not a bastard. Proclaim your position in Christ, and in His name and in His power and authority cast out the spirits of rejection, fear and abandonment. Ask the Holy Spirit to heal your heart in this area, and give you the blessing of a father; in this case the Heavenly Father. If you are the parent of a child born or conceived out of wedlock, ask their forgiveness and then give them your blessing. Tell your son or daughter that you are proud that they are yours, and break the bastard's curse in the name of Jesus.

If your child is young, teach them the ways of the Lord to fight that generational curse in their life. The spirit of the Lord will release you and cleanse you and your family and begin to bring blessings.

There is always hope when there is repentance and confession from the parant and child.

Inner Vows - The Power of Our Words

What are Inner Vows

Inner vows are like declaration or promises we make about ourselves. Inner vows will come to pass. 

Inner vows represent us choosing our will over God’s and need to be revoked before we can experience the fullness of the Holy Spirit.

Satan, will make sure the words you spoke over yourself will come to pass. Inner vows that they happen. 

Have you ever said: "I will never a let a man (or women) ever hurt me again?" Or, "I will never put myself in that position again." "I can't trust anybody." "Nobody can do it right but me." "I will never be like my mother (or father).""I will never be like that." "I will never share what I really feel, it is not safe." Many men say this about their mothers, and then it transfers to their wives. "Men (women) never do it right." "Don't share," etc. Proverbs teaches us that as we think in our hearts, so we become (Proverbs 23:7a). If we make these "vows," or statements, 

Many of these vows were said as children, yet they effect our lives as adults. If you have ever made such statements, it is now time to go before the Lord, and repent and break the power of the curse that was has placed on your life.

Inner vows must be revoked

Breaking Inner Vows

  • Ask yourself, “Have I made any inner vows?” What were they? Write down your inner vow list. Ask the Lord to help you. 
  • Examine who was involved in the life that led you to make an inner vow, directly and indirectly:
  • Sometimes we make inner vows because of hurts like broken promises, betrayals, etc. Make a list of people who hurt you and if you made any vows. Then, take the time to forgive them.
  • Repent for making the inner vow and not trusting God in the situation. Say this prayer! “Lord, I now recognize that I have made an inner vow that reveals a lack of trust in your willingness to help and protect me and those that I love. I ask that you would forgive me. I want to transfer that need to feel helped and protected onto you, and I humbly ask that you would do just that; help and protect myself and those that I love. I renounce the inner vow that said, “___________________________. Please break the power of this vow over my life and help me to set wise goals that are in agreement with your plans and purposes for me. I also ask that you would heal any wounding in my heart that came as a result of the event that caused me to make this inner vow. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
