Family curses are reoccurring problems that steal, kill, and destroy. Scripture is clear God visits the iniquity of the fathers upon the children up to the third and fourth generation (Exodus 20:5). Curses don’t visit your family without a cause. When someone up the family tree gives spirits the right to visit because of iniquity they come looking for a reason to mess up your life. Take courage. After family curses are exposed Christ’s deliverance is readily available.
You cannot choose your relatives anymore than you can choose skin color, gender, or race. Someone up the family tree could be the cause for a generational curse. A family curse is a payment or “recompense for iniquity.” It is written, “Render unto them a recompense, O LORD, according to the work of their hands. Give them sorrow of heart, thy curse unto them. Persecute and destroy them in anger from under the heavens of the LORD” (Lamentations 3:64-66).
Before you can break generational curses we need to identify what they look like. Here is a partial list of family curses for your review. Having one of these in your life or family may not indicate a family curse. To have several “reoccurring” ones might. The help of the Holy Spirit is vital in identifying a family curse. As you read this list ask Him to give you a spirit of revelation.
