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]

Defining Sin Against the Holy Spirit
From: Bideh To: The Path of Truth Sent: Sunday, January 31, 2016 12:42 PM Subject: The Holy Spirit Pls what is the sin against the Holy Spirit that cannot be forgiven? From: Paul Cohen and Victor Hafichuk To: Bideh Sent: Monday, February 08, 2016 7:16 AM Subject: Re: The Holy Spirit The sin that can’t be forgiven by men is when one speaks of and treats the work of God as evil. Only God can forgive this sin, which He does when He chooses, just as He did with Saul of Tarsus: “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, Who strengthened me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry-- the one who before was a blasphemer and a persecutor and insolent” (1 Timothy 1:12-13 MKJV). There is no sin that Jesus Christ hasn’t overcome, Bideh, or He isn’t the Lord and Savior of all men. “But the Law entered so that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound, so that as sin has reigned to death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 5:20-21 MKJV).

Judging and Discerning the Heart and Motive
From: Andrew To: The Path of Truth Sent: Saturday, March 05, 2016 9:03 AM Subject: Article about Joseph Prince A warning to you,  I read your article about Joseph Prince.  I laughed through much of and I have some issues with your statements.  You are claiming to know the motives and heart of Joseph Prince Ministries.  Yet you are a judge.  And for what reason I'm not sure.  Never ever in the years that I have watched him have ever been compelled to give money! Out of the goodness of my heart I wanted to give.  You are foolish and stepping on dangerous ground blatantly calling out ministries that you know nothing about.  Through his ministries I was set free from sin-consciousness, fears of public speaking, and for years I was addicted to pornography and after having a revelation through a message by Joseph Prince on Jesus' love towards me I was set free! Not in my efforts but by grace.   You are afraid of money or prosperity  yet the bible says it is the love of money that is a root to all kinds of evil ( not money it self.) I can tell you've probably only watched a few messages by Joseph and have judged without further investigations.  Joseph Prince preaches quite often on the life of Joseph and how the lord was with Joseph and made him prosper.  Joseph Prince said "prosperity is not about money but God is always with us." There are thousands of people who have been sent free from the law and walking in a life to glorify Jesus. You claim we need to keep sabbaths...
