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]

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.

It's Not Too Late, Addict, for Repentance
From: Jordan To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, February 23, 2016 2:50 PM Subject: Repentance Is there ever a point where we are too far from repentance?  I've been an addict for years and while I was under the influence the devil manifested before me and told me he won and God turned me over to him.  At that point there was a deep sinking feeling in my heart and since then I've been doing better working towards cutting all sins from myself.  I pray daily and read the bible daily now trying to learn the word of God.  The people in my life tend to be Devils and I can tell now.  Is that because I am now one with his side?  When the devil manifested before me I rebuked what he said and have been working as hard as I can to remove all sin from me.  If you could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks. Jordan From: Victor Hafichuk To: Jordan Sent: Tuesday, March 01, 2016 7:09 AM Subject: Re: Repentance Hi Jordan, Have you red our paper on Repentance? You’ve been trying to effect your own repentance, which is impossible. That’s why you’re confused about whose side you’re on – God’s or the Devil’s. When you experience the gift of repentance from God, you’ll know assuredly that He is on your side, and by walking in faith, that you’re on His side.  But at least you’ve taken the step of acknowledging the Law is good, and also realize you can’t believe what the Devil tells you, because he’s a liar. So keep going, and when you fail, look to the Lord...
