What is a generational curse?

Not sure what to think of the deliverance ministry?
Please take a moment to read
What the ministry of deliverance should be!

A generational curse is basically a defilement that was passed down from one generation to another. For example, if your mother has been heavily involved in the occult, then she has become quite defiled (polluted or unclean), and has opened herself up to various demons to enter her. The Bible tells us that the sin of the parents can cause that same pollution to be handed down to their children:

Lamentations 5:7, "Our fathers have sinned, and are not; and we have borne their iniquities."

What happens is that not only is the uncleanliness handed down, but demons move right in and take advantage of this often at a very young age in a person's life (often before birth). The person then goes throughout life struggling with the same bondages that their parents struggle with. The good news is that the Blood of Jesus is more powerful than any bondage that may have been handed down to you! You can be set free and completely released from the effects of any generational curses handed down to you!

If you struggle with the same bondages as your parents, or see siblings with the same problems, then it is quite possible that you are suffering from the effects of a generational curse. Many times when you see three generations suffering from depression... it's almost always a generational curse at work and a spirit of heaviness took advantage of those cures in each of their lives through the defilement that was passed down.

I believe generational sin curses (curses caused by sins of the forefathers) are automatically broken at the time a person receives salvation, but the unclean spirits that entered in before they accepted Jesus still need to come out. Other generational curses such as encountered in Freemasonry, need to be renounced and broken in order to be set free from them. Once a curse is broken, the next step is to drive out the spirits that may have entered in because of that curse.

For much more information on all this, along with more scriptural backing, be sure to read the full length teaching on Generational Curses.
