Hello,

I wanted to ask if you believe in generational curses? Some doctrines say Jesus finish e everything in the cross,  so there is no generational curses for a new born in Christ. Can you explain ? I am very confuse because i myself felt at times as if i had generational curses from my ancestors. My life is not success in Jesus and don’t understand why. Thanks,  and God bless.

A man named Felix recently asked us about the same topic, Raul. Here is his letter:

Thanks for your nice piece, l have understood that God curses come as a result of being disobedient to him, that is not obeying His Laws.

But is there anything like generational curse? Because when u read 2kings14:5-6 it says that it is written in the book of law that parents are not to be put to death for crimes committed by their children and children are not to be put to death for the crimes committed by their parents; a person is to be put to death only for a crime he himself has committed.

Jer.31:29-30
Eze.18:1-32
Job.21:19-20

These three chapters in the bible also state it clear that nobody is punished cos of the sins of his/her parents but everyone will be judged according to his/her deeds so where lies these Generational curse that people preached about? [END]

This was our answer: 

Felix, it’s true that every person is responsible before God for their own actions. It’s also true that every person has inherited curses of one kind or another, going back to the very beginning: 

“And to Adam He said, Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree, of which I commanded you, saying, You shall not eat of it! The ground is cursed for your sake. In pain shall you eat of it all the days of your life. It shall also bring forth thorns and thistles to you, and you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken. For dust you are, and to dust you shall return” (Genesis 3:17-19 MKJV).

We’re not off the hook because Adam or our ancestors sinned. We’re no different than they are – that’s why all are called to repentance and the exercise of godly faith in Christ. 

My ancestors crucified the Christ and inherited the curse prophesied by David: 

Psalms 69:21-28 MKJV

(21)  They also gave Me gall for my food; and in My thirst they gave Me vinegar to drink.
(22)  Let their table become a snare before them; and to those at ease a trap.
(23)  Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see; and make their loins shake without ceasing.
(24)  Pour out Your wrath on them, and let the glow of Your anger take hold of them.
(25)  Let their dwelling be wasted; let none dwell in their tents.
(26)  For they persecute him whom You have stricken, and they talk to the grief of those You pierced.
(27)  Add iniquity to their iniquity, and let them not come into Your righteousness.
(28)  Let them be blotted out of the Book of Life, and not be written with the righteous.

But when the Lord gave me repentance and turned me to Himself, the faith He gave me to obey Him reversed the curse and there was life from the dead. Therefore, you see that all these things are working together for good. There needed to be the fall in order to experience the resurrection of the dead; the curse to experience the blessing of God.  

Does this help? 

Turn away from false teachers who come as ministers of righteousness in Christ’s Name but are wolves in sheep’s clothing. Lies bind to death; only Truth will make you free. [END]

From: Richard To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, June 19, 2016 4:49 PM Dear Victor, I have spent days from you website and the many websites over the years, yours is by far the best of the best. With so many false teachers listed, and of those of yesteryear, and in the future about so many of these false teachers. It reminds me that "many are called but only a few will be chosen." These false teachers will be judged at the judgment seat of Christ. You have done so much research and study. It is just amazing! Whether you may never respond to my emails, I do understand. I am not part of hate mail that you may have encountered over the years. Shalom!

No ConfíES en Tus Sentimientos 
English - Spanish De: Tonya Para: Paul Cohen Enviado: Sábado 23 de Enero, 2016 12:27 AM Asunto: Hola, ¿me puedes dar tu consejo?  Hola, mi nombre es Tonya, tengo 35 años y crecí sin conocer a Dios en una casa con 6 niños y mi papá era divorciado y mis 2 hermanos y yo estábamos con él cuando conoció a una novia que tenía 3 hijos y ellos estuvieron juntos por 13 años. Ambos permanecieron juntos muy infelices, excepto por nosotros los niños. Hacia el final, ambos al mismo tiempo, conocieron a otras personas en línea y se separaron y durante los últimos 15 años ambos han estado muy felices ahora. Siento que esto ha jugado un papel en mi vida ya que estoy en la misma situación, como también lo están mis otros hermanos y hermana que están en relaciones. Es triste cómo eso sucede y yo no quiero esto para mis hijos. Yo conocí a mi esposo a los 19 años, ningunos de nosotros conocíamos a Dios. Terminamos casándonos 2 años después y tuve nuestro primer hijo justo antes de casarnos. Él se unió al ejército por 4 años. Tenemos 3 hijos y hemos estado juntos 16 años, casados por 14.  Hemos tenidos muchos problemas durante estos años comenzando después de que nuestro primer hijo nació. Empeoraron y él hizo algunas cosas mientras estaba fuera del país; luego se volvió adicto a los juegos. El siempre ha jugado juegos desde el principio, pero las cosas empeoraron. Recientemente, él gasto más de 2000 en 2 meses en su juego que juega sin parar. Eso es muy malo y le ha quitado la vida y n...
Foolishly Defending Joseph Prince
"Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment" (Job 32:9) Name: B. Olsen  Subject: Joseph Prince I have been watching Joseph Prince for the last 8 months and I have never seen or heard him preach in the manner you describe on your website. He preaches the Grace, Love and Glory of Jesus Christ. I am 80 yrs. old and have been a Christian for 72 yrs. I have attended thousands of church services and have watched and heard thousands of sermons and I whole heartily disagree with you personal assessment of Joseph Prince. May God help your soul. From: Victor Hafichuk Date: Wed, Apr 7, 2021 at 7:32 PM Subject: Joseph Prince To: B. Olsen Joseph Prince preaches another Jesus, a counterfeit one. And you are an old fool being deceived. You fell to false conversion in your youth by strong delusion because you didn’t have a love of the Truth. Only a hoary head found in righteousness isone of glory.Your years are a mark of shame and not of vindication. \/ From: B.
