Turning Curses to Blessings – Chapter 13

Chapter 13

A New Beginning

 

      It is time we stopped claiming all kinds
of reasons why we have curses on us.  There are only two reasons: 
1) not listening to God, and 2) not obeying His word.

      (Deuteronomy 28:1, 2)  And it
shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of
the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command
thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations
of the earth:

      And all these blessings shall come on
thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD
thy God.

      If your effort is to obey and to hearken
diligently to the voice of God’s Word, blessings will seek you out and
they will not be lost.  They overtake you!

HOW DO I KNOW IF I’VE BEEN CURSED?

       We need to look out for curses
in our own lives and in those of others.  We have to bring the work
of Satan out into the open.  That’s why Jesus came to this earth. 
He came so that He could destroy the works of the devil.

      (1 John 3:8) For this purpose the Son
of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

      The following list is helpful to use
as a checklist of symptoms that can indicate the presence of curses. 
Take this list and check through your own life and your family.  If
these symptoms are prominent in your life, you need to repent of any sin
in your life and in your ancestors, and break the curses.

Humiliation

Physical illness

Family breakdown

Poverty

Mental illness

Destruction

Defeat

Oppression

Depression

Failure

Fear of Failure

Disfavor from God

Mental exhaustion

One sickness after another

Divorce

Miscarriages

Female problems

PMS

Infertility

Family always fighting

Poverty

Things always going wrong

Accidents looking for a place to happen

Deceived

Being deceived

 

THE CURE

 

THE SOURCE OF THE CURE IS GOD.

 

THE ONLY WAY TO THE CURE IS JESUS.

 

DEATH ON THE CROSS WAS AND IS THE ONLY PRICE THAT WAS PAID FOR THE
CURE.

 

HOW TO REMOVE CURSES

 

      In Deuteronomy 28:1-2 we have the promise
that if we shall hearken diligently to the voice of the Lord, we shall
have the blessings overtake us.  However, in Deuteronomy 28:14, it
says, “if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to
observe to do all his commandments and his statues which I command thee
this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee.”

 

      I exhort you with all my strength and
heart to read from verse 15 until the end of Deuteronomy 28.  If you
see any of these curses in your life or in your family, pray to God in
Jesus’ name and repent for any unforgiven sins that you or your generations
before you have done to cause these curses.  Command the curses to
be broken in the name of Jesus Christ and speak blessings to replace the
curses in the name of Jesus.  We have written out the entire passage
in Appendix 1, so that you can logically and constructively deal with these
matters that have had destructive consequences in your life.

      This is not a religious experience. 
It is a spiritual preparation for you to serve your God, to be good parents,
to be good spouses, and to be a great witness to a world that is dying
in its curses.  As these blessings start to minister to you, day-by-day,
you will see changes.  You will feel stronger, your confidence in
your relationship with the Lord will be stronger, and your family ties
will be sweeter.  Financial blessings generally take some time, but
as you are faithful to do what the word of God calls you to do, you will
also see blessings in this area.

      My prayer for each person that is reading
this book is for his or her life to change, to move closer to the center
of God’s will, to be that witness that we are asked to be in God’s Word. 
Our confidence in God will continue to grow until we can say to that mountain,
“Be thou removed,” in the name of Jesus and see it come to pass.

      Please allow me to pray with you: 
Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, we come before you
with praise and thanksgiving for the marvelous work that you have done
for us.  You gave your only-begotten Son, our Savior, to die on Calvary’s
cross and to suffer such torture, so that we could be your children. 
You paid the price that it cost for all of our sins and the disobedience
that we continue to do in our lives.  Thank you right now for breaking
the power of that sin in our lives and setting us free from any curses
that have held us in bondage.  We ask this in the name of Jesus for
ourselves and for our families.  We repent for the sins of our ancestors
and of our nation.  We ask that you will cleanse us with the blood
of Jesus Christ as white as snow.  Thank you that you will remember
those sins no more.  We humbly ask that you will help us to continue
to obey your word, to seek your face, and to love and love some more. 
Thank you for all of the wonderful blessings of rest, health, prospering
in your way, being able to bless those who curse us, being able to forgive
and be forgiven.  Thank you for encouraging us to speak your promises
against any problem that we have.  Give us faith that is greater than
our problems.  Help us to forgive those we have not forgiven, even
if they have cursed us.  We repent for any occult or occultist practices
in our lives and in our families, or anything that we have permitted to
get into our lives that have led us away from making your Son, Jesus, our
Lord.  Give us the strength to glorify your name in all situations,
to give the sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving in place of complaint
and discouragement.  We thank you, Heavenly Father, for all that you
have done in our lives and are going to do, in the name of our Lord Jesus
Christ.  Amen.

 

Appendix 1

Deuteronomy 28:15-68

 

28:15    But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not
hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments
and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall
come upon thee, and overtake thee:

28:16    Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed
shalt thou be in the field.

28:17    Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.

28:18    Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the
fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

28:19    Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and
cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

28:20    The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation,
and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou
be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness
of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.

28:21    The Lord shall make the pestilence cleave unto
thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest
to possess it.

28:22    The Lord shall smite thee with a consumption,
and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning,
and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew: and they shall
pursue thee until thou perish.

28:23    And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be
brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.

28:24    The Lord shall make the rain of thy land powder
and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

28:25    The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before
thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways
before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

28:26    And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls
of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them
away.

 

28:27    The Lord will smite thee with the botch of Egypt,
and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou
canst not be healed.

28:28   The Lord shall smite thee with madness, and boldness,
and astonishment of heart:

28:29    And thou shalt grope at noonday, as the blind
gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt
be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.

28:30    Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall
lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein:
thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.

28:31    Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and
thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from
before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be
given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.

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: and there shall be no might in thine hand.

28:33    The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours,
shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed
and crushed always:

28:34    So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine
eyes which thou shalt see.

28:35    The Lord shall smite thee in the knees, and
in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of
thy foot unto the top of thy head.

28:36    The Lord shall bring thee, and thy king which
thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers
have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.

28:37    And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb,
and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.

28:38    Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field,
and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.

28:39    Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them,
but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms
shall eat them.

28:40    Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy
coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive
shall cast his fruit.

28:41    Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou
shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.

28:42    All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the
locust consume.

28:43    The stranger that is within thee shall get up
above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.

28:44    He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend
to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

28:45    Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee,
and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because
thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments
and his statutes which he commanded thee:

28:46    And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for
a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.

28:47    Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with
joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;

28:48    Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which
the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness,
and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck,
until he have destroyed thee.

28:49    The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from
far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation
whose tongue thou shalt not understand;

28:50    A nation of fierce countenance, which shall
not regard the person of the old, nor show favour to the young:

28:51    And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and
the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave
thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks
of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.

28:52    And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates,
until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout
all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all
thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.

28:53    And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body,
the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath
given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies
shall distress thee:

28:54    So that the man that is tender among you, and
very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the
wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall
leave:

28:55    So that he will not give to any of them of the
flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him
in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress
thee in all thy gates.

28:56    The tender and delicate woman among you, which
would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness
and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom,
and toward her son, and toward her daughter,

28:57    And toward her young one that cometh out from
between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she
shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness,
wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.

28:58    If thou wilt not observe to do all the words
of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious
and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;

28:59    Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful,
and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance,
and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.

28:60    Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases
of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.

28:61    Also every sickness, and every plague, which
is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee,
until thou be destroyed.

28:62    And ye shall be left few in number, whereas
ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not
obey the voice of the LORD thy God.

28:63    And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD
rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will
rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall
be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.

28:64    And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people,
from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt
serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood
and stone.

28:65    And among these nations shalt thou find no ease,
neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee
there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:

28:66    And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee;
and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy
life:

28:67    In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it
were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the
fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine
eyes which thou shalt see.

28:68    And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again
with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no
more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and
bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.
