New Testament proof:
In the gospels we get a glimpse of how sin brings a curse upon a person. We can see that some diseases and infirmities are a direct result of sin (curse). Repentance/forgiveness is necessary for healing and deliverance.
The Israelites understood the consequences of sin resulting in a curse. John 9:2 “And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? The reason his disciples asked Jesus who did sin, that he was born blind, is because blindness was an outward manifestation (a curse) of an inward condition (sin) evident in his family lineage.
In Matthew 9:2 Jesus said to the man with the palsy, “Thy sins be forgiven thee.” Then Jesus said to the man with the palsy, “Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house (Matt. 9:6).”
In John 5:5 A certain man which had an infirmity thirty-eight years laid by the pool of Bethesda. Jesus told the impotent man to rise up and walk in Matt. 5:8 and in verse 14 Jesus finds the man in the temple, and said unto him, “Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.”
We see by these examples that the infirmity was a direct result of sin. In Deuteronomy 28 Moses gives comprehensive lists of the blessings and curses. The blessings are listed in verses 3 through 13, the curses in verses 16 through 68.
In Exodus 34:7 states that the Lord forgives iniquity and transgression and sin. God also makes it clear that the iniquities of the fathers are passed from children to the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.
Two important features are common to blessings and curses.
First, their effect is not limited to the individual. It may extend to families, communities, or whole nation.
Second, they tend to continue from generation to generation until something happens to cancel their effects.
In Exodus 20:15 when God appeared on Mt. Sinai to give Moses the commandments, we read that breaking the first two commandments will bring a curse.
1). Idolatry (false Gods) Verse 3 says, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”
2). Graven image Verse 4 says, “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in earth beneath…”
This is very important for parents who have adopted children from other countries. Do you know anything about the faith and medical history of their biological parents? If the parents where worshiping a false gods, then they and their children are under a generational curse.
I remember a story where a minister told me of a couple who had adopted three beautiful Asian children. The youngest boy was severely cross-eyed. Upon ministering with this boy, and cancelling the generational curse, a remarkable thing happened, this child’s eyes straightened out.
In Exodus 20:5 He says, “For I the Lord thy God is a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”
In Deuteronomy 27:15-26 Moses list the sins, which provoke God’s curse. In Deuteronomy 28 Moses gives a comprehensive list of the blessings and curses. The blessings are listed in verses 3 through 13, the curses in verses 16 through 68.
The two alternatives that were presented to Israelites, on Mt. Ebal and Gerizim, the alternatives being the blessings and curses are also presented to Christians. They apply equally to all who have entered into a covenant relationship with God.
Under the New Covenant, just as under the Old, God still offers us two alternatives; either blessing for obedience or curse for disobedience, there is no third alternative.
The twelve sins that come with curses which was pronounced on the Israelites from Mount Ebal, can be categorized into these areas of moral and ethnical conduct:
Idolatry: Acknowledging and worshiping false gods (Exodus 20:3-5).When we think of idol worship or false gods we tend to see this as something that occurs in foreign countries. However, in western civilization anything that takes the place of God is your god or idol. These things can be our career, loved one, materialism, power, etc. If you don’t have time for God, time for church, time to pray, or time to read your bible, then what is consuming your time?
Graven image (Deuteronomy 27:15) Graven images man made carved, likeness of a person, animal or creation (sun, moon etc) and you bow down and worshipped it.This does not include your prize collection of angels, or dolls, unless you are worshipping them. However, this does include statues or images of other saints that people tend to bow down and pray to, along with a host of other graven images.
Occult/witchcraft (Deuteronomy 27:15) The Latin word for occult means hidden or secret.When we think of the occult or witch craft we may envision witches brewing a pot of some concoction, chanting curses, or a person with a doll that looks like a mini me, poking a sharp needle in it and chanting voodoo curses. However, it doesn’t take much to open a door to the occult, a séance at a party, a game with a Ouija Board, chanting in the dark Blood Mary into a mirror because of a dare from friends, levitating a person at camp Tilicki, being hypnotized at a gathering, having your palm read at a carnival, or simply reading your horoscope for fun. It doesn’t take much to open the door to the occult and bring a curse into your bloodline.
Three Branches of Occult: Witchcraft, Divination, and Sorcery.
Witchcraft – is the power branch
3 key words that expose the activity of witchcraft:
Manipulation, Intimidation, and Domination
Acupuncture, Astral-projection, Levitation, Marital Arts (Those that invoke supernatural spiritual powers), Para kinesis, Touch healing.
Divination- knowledge branch
Horoscope, Fortune telling, Hypnotism, Ouija Board, Crystal balls, Clairaudience
Sorcery – Material objects to impact physical senses.
Hallucinogenic Drugs & Certain Music, Amulets, ankhs (ankh is a cross with a ring at the top), charms, crystals (used for healing), horseshoes or rabbit tail for luck, and zodiac charms (Deuteronomy 18:10-13) and (Acts 19:18-19).
Kids-Certain toys - Pokémon toys & cards, 8 balls, chain letters, Harry Potter books, certain cartoons and TV shows, are introductions into the occult.
Unnatural or forbidden sex (Deuteronomy 27:20,21,22,23) this includes incest, bestiality, same sex, orgies, adultery, related by marriage). In Leviticus 18:22 God declares: “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination”
Adultery isn’t necessarily listed in this chapter, but marriage is a covenant, when we break covenant you bring a curse upon yourself
Disrespect for parents (Deuteronomy 27:16 AMP.) “Cursed is he who dishonors his father or his mother” and “Honor thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be will with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth (Ephesians 6:1-3).”
All forms of oppressions and injustice: Especially when directed against the weak and the helpless.
Murder of the innocent (Deuteronomy 27:25) “Cursed is he who takes a bribe to slay an innocent person.” (Gen 4:11) Cain after he killed Abel, God said, ”And now thou art cursed from the earth...” and “When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.”
When we look at murder we must remember that the Israelites did offer their children as sacrifice for fertility and a good harvest to the Canaanite priest. We must realize that abortion is also sacrificing the lives of innocent babies for personal benefit and will bring a curse.
Lawlessness: This final curse covered all forms of disobedience to the Law.
Other sins that provokes God’s curse:
Theft and perjury— destroys family and house (Zechariah 5:1-4).
Selfishness brings— insufficiency (Haggai 1:4-6).
Robbing God in tithe & offering brings lack and insufficiency (Malachi 3:8,9).
The above curses of robbing God can be removed from a curse of lack to blessings by repentance and restitution.
Resentment & Unforgiveness. When we choose not to forgive, Our Heavenly Father will send us to the tormentors (Matt. 18:34-35). If we have resentment and unforgiveness in our hearts, many of us are cursed with various infirmities.
Can a curse skip a generation? Yes, it can or the door can reopen to allow this curse, which may be dormant in a person to awake due to same sin or similar sin. Remember a curse goes to third or forth generation.
Why would it be dormant and why did it skip a generation? There are two possible reasons. One reason it could be dormant, because it was never revoked in the family bloodline. Second, this could be the fourth or fifth generation and no longer operative in the next generation.
How does a Christian revoke the curses? To be continued…

Curses can be narrowed down into three categories
1.Self imposed curses (Curses we speak over ourselves).
2. Curses spoken by other people (Form of Witch craft).
3. Generational Curses (Family Bloodline).
I want us to focus are attention on the third form of a curse, generational. Keep in mind that the presence of one or two of these problems in and of itself does not necessarily indicate evidence of a curse. Just because you have an accident or two, or are depressed doesn’t necessarily mean you are under a generational curse. But when several of the problems are present, or when any one of them tends to recur repeatedly to you or is evident in your family bloodline, then you need to take a close evaluation of what a generational curse is, and how to revoke it over you and your family bloodline.
Let's take a closer look at several Indications of a curse
1) Sterility, Barrenness, tendency to miscarry or related female problems.
Deuteronomy 28:18 “Curse shall be the fruit of your body” or womb. Fruit of thy body is in reference to procreation (children). For no medical or apparent reason you cannot procreate.
My mother could only give birth to me, a healthy baby girl. Although she tried she could not have any more children. Although I had severe cramping I gave birth to two healthy children. My daughter gave birth to a healthy son. After her son, she had two stillbirths, and was unable to give birth, just like my mother. The Lord revealed to me this was a generational curse. Once the curse was revoked my daughter gave birth to two healthy children.
2).Mental and /or emotional breakdown.
Deuteronomy 28:28,34 corresponding phrases are: madness, and astonishment of heart (28); confusion of heart or confusion of mind (34); a trembling heart or sorrow of minds (65).
The areas affected are the soul,heart and/or mind. Such people are tormented, in their dreams, thoughts and minds. They are not at rest; they have racing thought, hear voices, or/and are in continual torment and fear.
Yes, I am talking about Christians going through these things. You would be surprised how many Christians are going through these inner struggles. However they have no one in the body of Christ to talk to, so they cope or get help from the world (therapy, psychologist, medications, etc.). When the real problem is spiritual.
Two key words are depression and confusion. These almost invariably have their roots in some form of occult involvement. Occult is one of the sins that bring a curse into the family bloodline. Many who have used drugs (marijuana, cocaine, meth, etc) mind-altering drugs (form of sorcery) are now experiencing the painful after effects of dabbing in sorcery or/and occult activities.
There are others who have never been involved in occult activities or sorcery (drugs); they may have experienced deep depression, oppression and confusion at a young age. Such a person is a victim of a generational curse in their family bloodline. Who else has been diagnosed with mental illness in the family or diagnosed as manic-depressive, autism, bi-polar, or attention deficient disorder, etc.? The evidence is in your family bloodline. Take a closer look. If the Doctors say it’s hereditary, then it’s generational.
Alzheimer's disease isa progressive, degenerative disease of the brain, commonly affecting the elderly, and associated with the development of amyloid plaques in the cerebral cortex. It is characterized by confusion, disorientation, memory failure, speech disturbances, and eventual dementia. The cause is unknown. Alzheimer's disease is named for its identifier, German psychiatrist Alois Alzheimer (1864-1915).
DementiaDeterioration of intellectual faculties, such as memory, concentration, and judgment, resulting from an organic disease or a disorder of the brain, and often accompanied by emotional disturbance and personality changes.
1Timothy 1:7 says, “God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
There is no reason a Christian should have Alzheimer’s or Dementia other than due to an iniquity or generational curse.
3). Repeated or chronic sickness (especially if hereditary).
The corresponding phase from Deuteronomy 28 are: plague or plagued with diseases (21) consumption or wasting disease (22); extreme burning, fever and inflammation (22); incurable boils (27, 35); tumors (27); scabs or festering sores (27); incurable itch (27)), madness (28); blindness (28); extraordinary, fearful, prolonged plagues (59); serious and prolonged sicknesses or sever and lingering diseases of our seed (children) (59); every other sicknesses or severe and lingering diseases.
Consumption: An old and once common term for wasting away of the body, particularly from pulmonary tuberculosis(TB). Other old TB terms include the King's evil or scrofula (TB of the lymph nodes in the neck) and Pott's disease (TB of the spine).
The World Health Organization (WHO) in "L'histoire de la tuberculose" notes that: "In 460 BC Hippocrates identified consumption as the most widespread disease of his day and observed that it was almost always fatal. Someone who had tuberculosis seemed literally to be consumed by the disease.
Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells anywhere in a body. The abnormal cells are termed cancer cells, malignant cells, or tumorcells, consumption or wasting disease (22); tumors (27)
I remember a co-worker whose wife wrote an autobiography. I purchased the book eager to read what the author had written. I was shocked by what I was reading. Fred’s wife had been sexual abused by her father since she was a child of four or five years of age, which continue into her teen years. As she approached her adolescent years the physical and sexual abuse increased. In high school she met Fred who was smitten by her. However, she couldn’t dare tell her father. She wasn’t allowed to have friends, never less a boyfriend. She wasn’t allowed to socialize or participates in school activities. Finally as there relationship became serious she confided in Fred regarding the abuse. Very soon after this Fred showed up at her house and told her to get her things, she would be moving in with him and his parents. The father had to let her go or face the possibility of jail time. Fred eventually married his sweetheart and they moved on with their lives. That’s where the book ends, leaving you to believe they lived happily ever after. However I needed to know what happened to the father. Fred said, “He and his wife went to visit him at a nursing home. He was in a wheel chair and couldn’t walk, he was also blind”.
Fred and his wife were Christians and acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Savior. However, They couldn’t let go of the past nor forgive her father for what he had done. Why forgive? So she could be made whole, free from the pain and torment, and her earthly father could be released into the hands of a loving, but just God. After receiving continued therapy and counseling Fred’s wife left him and the children with a distrust and hatred toward men. They left Jesus hanging on a cross, as a dying Savior. He wanted to be their Deliverer, Redeemer, Peace, Joy, Healer and so much more, but they couldn’t let go and forgive, so God couldn’t heal and set them free. I pray that there will be another book, one of redemption— a ministry of reconciliation and healing.
4).Continued financial insufficiency and lack.
Two related phrases from Deuteronomy 28 are: “Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store” (28:17); “Curse shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep: (28:18) “Thou shalt not prosper in thy ways” or you will be unsuccessful in everything you do (28:29).
This is not just financial insufficiency but a lack in other areas. Always achieving but never receiving, coming short. You see doors of opportunity, divine connections, jobs, promotions all within reach but never attainable. No matter how hard you try, how much you give you fall short, depleted spiritually and financially.
I am not speaking of those periods in our lives, when our faith is being tried. Those times when we must see, rely and lean on our Heavenly Father as our provision.
5). Being “Accident-Prone”.
Accident-Prone deals with someone who is prone to unnatural accidents, better phrased as “freak” accidents. Deuteronomy 28 doesn’t necessarily mention this as a curse; it could be under the scripture in verse 29, “Thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind man gropeth in darkness…”
I was ministering to a person who had been in numerous car accidents, none of them her fault. I discerned that she was under a curse and was accident-prone. She immediately remembers being pushed out of a car as a young child. She says there was no other person in the back seat with her when she was pushed out of the car. A flood of memories involving accidents came to this women’s recollections; being pushed down, and tripping down steps, falling on the sidewalk, as well as other freak accidents. Each accident caused some of form physical injury to her body. She was able to see that this was not just limited to her, but the pattern was repeated with her daughter and granddaughter coming under this same curse.
It seems that there is an invisible force maliciously working against that person. A clue is when the person says things like, “ I don’t known how that happened” or “It felt like someone push or tripped me”.
6). A history of suicides and untimely deaths.
Deuteronomy 28:20 “…thou perish quickly;” and “And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life” (66)
You may know or have heard of families who have lost more than one family member in different accidents or victims of homicides. It is not uncommon in this curse for a series of tragedies to affect one family. However if one looks at the family bloodline you will see pattern of tragedies that has affected each generation.
7). Breakdown of marriage and family alienation.
Deuteronomy 28:32 “Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long;” Deuteronomy 28:41 “Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.”
Many parents have seen their sons and daughters taken captives to gangs, drugs, sex (prostitution & homosexuality), and the occult.
There is an unseen force that brings division and alienation to the family structure.
I know of families where the women would marry and have children. The husband/father would leave the family; none of the children had a relationship with their father growing up. This not only affected the daughters in the family, but this pattern (curse) was repeated with their children when they became adults or married. I have also seen that pattern with the sons leaving their family just like their fathers had. There is a breakdown in the family structure from one generation to another.
In order to understand where or how a curse develops in a person’s life we must first understand the different stages of sin.
1). Sin: Sin is an offense. The root word for sin is — missing the mark. The Bible says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23)”. All means Christians as well. Scripture says, “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us (1John 1:8-10).” Once we confess our sins and asked the Lord to forgive us in Jesus name, we are forgiven. But what happens if we don’t ask for forgiveness? What if we justify ourselves or minimize that sin. If we continue in that sin it becomes a transgression.
2).Transgression: Root word—to rebel, offend, to choose.
Transgression is rebellion. When we continue to deliberately sin and refuse to repent, we allow this particular sin to become a stronghold in our lives. A stronghold means just that, a strong hold in our lives. Once this transgression becomes a stronghold, it’s a matter of time before it takes root in us, turning into an iniquity.
3) Iniquity: Root word—twisted, bent, depravity, and perversity
Iniquity is a practiced sin that twists its way into the heart and bloodline of a person. Iniquities don’t just affect one person but passes from one generation to another in the family bloodline.
Isaiah 53:5 says, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities…”
Clearly we see that transgressions and iniquities are not the same thing, but two different types of sins. Not all sins bring a curse. However, all curses are a direct result of sin. Whether you opened the door to that particular sin or your mother, father, grandma, grandfather... depending on the sin it will bring a curse upon your bloodline.

Genetic or Generational Curse
Why do some Christians who tithe lack financially, and/or naturally (always pursuing but never achieving)? How can a Christian woman be physically capable of having child, but for no medical reason, be barren? Why do Christians suffer from depression and suicidal thoughts, which have plagued their family from one generation to another generation? Why are hereditary diseases passed from one generation to another, when you are a God fearing, bible believing Christian?
My own daughter had two stillborn births. These stillborns were devastating to us, seeing that each miscarriages happened at six and seventh month of her pregnancy. After the second child I became angry at the devil for taking the life of another grandchild. When I found out she was pregnant a third time I pleaded, and interceded before God on behalf of my daughter. Neither she nor I could bear to have another devastating heartache of losing another grandchild.
The Lord revealed to me that this was a generational curse. My mother could only have one child, me. There was no medical reason why she couldn’t have other children. Whether she had miscarried other children or not she didn’t tell me, but she did say she tried to have other children. I on the other hand, gave birth to two healthy children. That generation curse had not left me barren, but did cause other problems. Now my daughter was faced with this cursed. As I stood and prayed over my daughter for this curse to be removed and destroyed over our family line, I knew it was done. My daughter gave birth to a healthy boy and later a beautiful girl.
As a Christian I knew that our Lord Jesus Christ took our sins upon the cross, and by His stripes we are healed. But, He took more than our sins upon the cross at Calvary. Gal. 3:13 says, “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” (KJV)
Jesus Christ became a curse for us, that we might be free from the curses. We repent of our sins, knowing He bore are sins on the cross, but have we ever revoked the curses that He also redeemed us from at Calvary?
I use to think that once you become a Christian that you are free from any curse because you are not under the law, but grace. Let me explain it the way it was revealed to me. Your grandpa received an unusual pet. He was advised not to get it, but it was so appealing to him, and besides it lives a very long time, at least four generations. So he open’s his door and allowed this forbidden pet into his home. Let’s call this pet a gremlin, and name it Sin. Sin wreaks havoc in the house destroying all it gets its hands on. Your grandparents die and eventually you inherit this pet. You know what it did to your grandparent’s and parent’s home. Now you see what it is doing to your home and family. You take medication for depression because of what Sin has done in your life, and you have been diagnosed as a manic-depressive. It doesn’t surprise you, because your grandma, father, and brother suffered from depression also. You accept this depression as hereditary. One day you learn that as a Christian, you are not under the law but grace. Jesus Christ took your place at Calvary because of sin. You read the scripture Gal. 3:13 which says, that Jesus redeemed you from the curse due to sin. You realize that this depression is due to Sin. You repent for your mother and father allowing Sin to come into their lives, even seven generations back, as well as yourself. You revoke this curse from going any further, and place it under the blood that Jesus Christ shed for you. There is no sacrifice you need to make (Law) it was already made for you at Calvary. Now by revoking this curse you have kicked Sin out of your house and family. You are no longer depressed, because the root problem of depression was a generational curse.
Curses are a result of sin. Sin opens the door to curses. In Deuteronomy 28 Moses gives comprehensive lists of the blessings and curses. The blessings are listed in verses 3 through 13, the curses in verses 16 through 68.
Two important features are common to blessings and curses. First, their effect is not limited to the individual. It may extend to families, communities or whole nations. Second, they tend to continue from generation to generation until something happens to cancel their effects.
