Subject: Quick Question. .
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.

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.
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]

Found your site when I was searching for Dan Sheridan. He was considered among false teachers along with Martin Sheridan. My spiritual journey started when I about 28 or so. I was saved and baptized in a Baptist Church. So started at Baptist, migrated to charismatic/pentecostal where I met my husband. Left church for a while when I discovered Martin Zender and his teachings that we are under Grace and not Law. Paul was sent to preach to the uncircumcised and not to the circumcised (the Jews). Return back to church for my husband but my heart and mind is not there. Now doing Bible study with Dan Sheridan via his website. Still working on knowing/learning God's truths. Spent about 4 hours on your website reading through many "articles" (for lack of better word). It seems that Mr Victor sees that he has true grasp of God's Word as do Dan, Martin and others. It's ...
