Releasing Blessing By Blocking Curses Chapter 3 of 24

<-Chapter 2   Chapter 4->   Show Condensed Version

Dealing With Specific Curses Step By Step


If there is a curse of any kind in your life, the first thing you must realize is that this curse did not come from God. Satan is the author of a curse and he only brings negative, destructive things in your life.

God only gives blessing, and He longs for you to experience every good thing. If you are being affect by a curse, it is because you have allowed it in through sin, whether you sinned knowingly or without being aware of what you were doing.

However, no matter what sin you have committed or what license you have given, you can rest assured in the knowledge that there is no condemnation to those in Christ.

You can always receive cleansing and forgiveness when you come to God in prayer. This section will take you through the steps to deal with any curse in your life and the sin that allowed it to be there.

The key scripture to deal with any sin in your life is James 4:7. This simple verse is the answer to dealing with every curse in your life and is the base of each solution given below. Memorize these verses as they are a vital part of your Christian walk.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse [your] hands, [you] sinners; and purify [your] hearts, [you] double minded. (James 4:7 and 8)

Note: It is not essential, but it would be better and certainly more powerful if you can go through these steps together with at least one other person. The Scripture says in Matthew 18:20,

For where two or three have been gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them.

The best person to stand in agreement with you would be your spouse, spiritual leader, or a spiritually discerning friend.

Breaking Family Generation Links

Examples of Sin Committed

√ A family member or relative was involved in the occult, e.g. psychic readings, Voodoo, witchcraft, white magic, Wicca's, New Age, etc.

√ A family member or relative was involved in false religions, such as Free Masonry, Jehovah's Witness, Mormonism, Buddhism, etc.

√ A family member or relative opened the door to a curse in their lives, and as a result most of your family now experience a certain type of sickness or poverty or an addiction, etc.

√ Someone spoke a judgment or curse on one of your family members and they believed the lie. They said something like,

"You are a pathetic failure and will never succeed in anything you do."

Or, "You are stupid and you will never be successful."

Possible Effects of the Curse

Note: This is in addition to the root signs of a curse, which are fear, loss of control, destruction, loss and strife.

√ If the family generational link has opened the door to the occult, there is a possibility that you could operate in a spirit of divination. This can manifest itself in any of these ways.

You could have 'prophetic' dreams or demonic visions; sudden strong urges to do something 'for the Lord', which is out of your character and which to others looks like erratic behavior; 'seeing' into the future and knowing when exact events are going to take place, etc.

√ Most of your family seem to have difficulty with the same occurring problem. This could be alcoholism, constant poverty, a sickness like diabetes, heart condition, asthma, etc. Or they could have constant failure in business ventures, bad relationships, etc.

The Steps to Take

Step 1

Ask the Lord for revelation and identify the curse.

Step 2

Break spiritual links with your family, specifically your family heritage.

Step 3

Kick Satan out.

Step 4

If they are open, share what you have learned in this course with your family, so that they too can break free of any family generational curse that may be there.

Step 5

If members of your family are not saved or do not accept this teaching, you must continue to break spiritual links with them each time you have contact with them.

The blessings and curses run through each member in your family, like the same blood that runs through all your veins. While you are in contact with a member of your family, it is as if there is a pipe joining you to each other, making your blood flow as one.

If you have dealt with the curse in your life, but a family member has not, each time you open your spirit to them, your 'blood' will once again become contaminated with the curse in theirs. The Scripture says,

Brethren, if a man is overtaken in fault, you which are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering yourself, lest you also be tempted. (Galatians 6:1)

Note: Breaking links with your family does not mean that you are cutting them off, saying that they are not your family anymore, or that you never want anything more to do with them.

When you break spiritual links, you are stopping your spirit from being contaminated or affected by theirs. It is like when someone has a contagious disease. You do not completely desert them, but you do take precautions to make sure you don't contract the same disease yourself.

An Example Prayer to Pray

Step 1

"Lord I ask you for revelation in identifying this curse that seems to be running in my family. Thank you for your blessing and taking this curse out of my life now."

Once you have identified where the curse started or where it is coming from, you can move onto step 2. As an example, let's say that the curse is from your grandfather who was a Free Mason.

Step 2

"In Jesus name I break family generational links. I break the curse now that has come down from my grandfather and his involvement as a Free Mason. I separate my spirit from this curse and will have nothing to do with it."

Step 3

"Satan you no longer have license to bring me under a curse because of this, and you will leave now in Jesus name."

Breaking Spiritual Links

Examples of Sin Committed

√ You meet someone for the first time and open your spirit and heart wide to them. You possibly even receive ministry from them.

√ Someone that has a curse in their lives gives you counsel, prophesies over you or prays for you and you receive their ministry.

√ You read a magazine or book or browse a website that has an oppression on it. You do this with an open spirit.

Possible Effects of the Curse

After speaking to a new acquaintance or someone you haven't seen in a long time, you can immediately start seeing the signs of a curse. Refer to the Signs of a Curse.

You experience physical problems, fear, anger, loss, etc.

The Steps to Take

You need to apply the steps given in James 4:7. These are the steps to take.

Step 1

Submit yourself to the Lord and break links with the person or the involvement you had.

Step 2

Resist Satan and take back the license you gave him by opening your heart to a curse.

Step 3

Speak blessing in place of the curse.

An Example Prayer to Pray

Step 1

"I submit myself to you Jesus and ask you to forgive me for opening my heart to things that are not of you. I break links with that website I went to and separate my spirit from any demonic influence."

Step 2

"Satan, I take back the license I gave you and close the door on you. You will leave now in Jesus name."

Step 3

"I speak blessing on this situation now in Jesus', name and thank you Lord for removing all signs of the curse."

Note: Breaking links does not have to be a big deal of sitting down and having a special prayer time. This is something you should get into the habit of doing on the run and even under your breath where necessary.

We live in a world where there is evil, so being affected by a curse is not always avoidable. Just maintain an open communication and relationship with the Lord, and you will not be affected by Satan's attempts to bring you down. It is only when you step out of the Lord's protection that you give Satan license in your life.


Buildings Under a Curse

Examples

√ A building that is dedicated to Satanic or occult practices.

√ A building or place that is used for gatherings for people of false religions. This usually also includes having their associated idols in it, e.g. a mosque, Mormon temple, etc.

√ A building that is covered with idols, such as crucifixes, religious statues, pentagrams, etc.

√ A home or building where someone under a strong curse or bondage lived.

Possible Effects of the Curse

Note: This is in addition to the root signs of a curse, which are fear, loss of control, destruction, loss and strife.

√ A very strong sense of fear when in the building.

√ Strange, unexplainable things happening which lead people to call the building haunted.

√ A constant lack of peace.

Note: The exact opposite can also apply to a building, where there is blessing instead of a curse. There are many buildings that carry the anointing and peace of God. Examples of these are buildings where revival has taken place, a church, or a home where an anointed man or woman of God lives.

The Steps to Take

Step 1

Make as much effort as possible to stay out of such buildings contaminated with a curse.

Step 2

If you cannot avoid being in such a place, once you have left, follow the steps in Breaking Spiritual Links.

Step 3

There are several things you can do depending on your situation.

a. If the building is an idol in itself, such as a mosque, there is nothing you can do other than stay out of it and keep your spirit free from the demonic presence in it. Of course the ideal thing would be to follow the solution they had in the Bible, which was to actually destroy the building.

b. If the building is a home you are renting and living in but do not own, you cannot completely remove the curse. The building does not belong to you, so you do not have the license to tell Satan to leave. Only the owner of the building has that right. However, you can block the curse from affecting you.

c. If the building is a home that you own, you can tell Satan to leave and speak blessing in its place.

An Example Prayer to Pray

A Home You Are Renting

"Satan I block you from having your way in this home. I bind you in chains and say that your curse will not affect me or my family while we are living here.

I speak blessing on this home. Thank you Jesus for your peace and for blocking all demonic influence."

Go through the house and specifically speak blessing on each room and each item in the room. A wonderful way to release the anointing into your home is through praise and worship. Praise the Lord and sing or play anointed music in your home and you will notice an immediate difference.

The Scripture tells us that whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Just as your clothes become dirty while you are wearing them, so your home can become contaminated. The ideal thing to do would be to constantly speak or loose blessing over your home and bind any curse from affecting you.

Note: If someone else outside your family comes to live in your home and they are under a curse, you can follow the step below. You have the right to stop further curses from coming into your home.

A Home that You Own

"Satan I take away any license you have in this home. I speak blessing in its place and shine the light of Jesus on every part of this building."

As we shared above, go through the whole house and specifically pray in each room. There could be a specific demon or curse associated with a room, and you must speak blessing and the anointing of the Lord in its place.


Cursed Objects

Examples of Cursed Objects

√ Known idols such as pentagrams, crosses, rosary beads, religious statues, etc.

√ Items that belong to, or were created by someone with bondage in their lives, e.g. books, magazines, letters, paintings, furniture, etc.

√ Items that have been prayed over or specially dedicated by a person not operating in the spirit of God.

Possible Effects of the Curse

Note: This is in addition to the root signs of a curse, which are fear, loss of control, destruction, loss and strife.

√ If this object is in your room, you could have nightmares and a very restless sleep.

√ The root signs of a curse will show in your life, i.e. fear, loss of control, destruction, loss and strife.

The Steps to Take

Step 1

If the object is an idol or has words on it, throw it away.

Step 2

If the object has become contaminated by being in the presence of or being owned by a person under a curse, pray over it.

An Example Prayer to Pray

Step 2

"In Jesus name I shine the light of Jesus on this object and take it out of darkness. I give this object to you Jesus, and ask you to rest your anointing on it."

Image that you have a light bulb outside and a big dust storm comes and covers the light with dirt. Before long the bulb is completely covered over. Before you can see the light shining again, you must take off all the dust and dirt that has gathered on it.

This is what you are doing when you pray over a contaminated object. Through the curse, Satan has come in and blown all his dirt over this object. Now through prayer you are dusting it off and shining the light again. You could almost call it 'spiritual dusting'.

Note: A new item from the store does not need to be prayed over, unless it was specially handcrafted by someone under a curse. Most items are mass produced by machinery and do not receive contact from a person who can impart of their spirit into it.

Curses in Conflict Situations

Examples of Sin Committed

√ You have an open argument or conflict with someone. You never resolved it with each other, but you are still bothered by it.

√ You are angry or bitter against someone, but do not resolve the issue.

√ You attempt to minister to someone and they openly or secretly reject your ministry.

Possible Effects of the Curse

Note: This is in addition to the root signs of a curse, which are fear, loss of control, destruction, loss and strife.

√ From the moment of your conflict with the other person, everything from small problems to big ones occur in your life. Everything goes wrong.

√ You are constantly frustrated and angry with people and things around you. Your emotions are also out of control.

√ You experience what is called a backlash after ministering to someone, where you come under the same curse as the person you were ministering to. Read Dealing With a Backlash (Page 200) for further details.

The Steps to Take

Step 1

Make sure you have dealt with your anger and bitterness by repenting to the Lord.

Step 2

If this person is a Christian and has caused an open offense to you through words or actions, follow the steps of reconciliation in Matthew 18:15 to 17.

Step 3

If you have followed every solution according to the Word and the conflict is still not resolved, break spiritual links with the person and close the doors that you have opened to the enemy in the spirit.

An Example Prayer to Pray

Step 1

"I submit myself to you Jesus and ask you to forgive me for opening my heart to bitterness and allowing Satan to have control in my life. I forgive (name of person) for what they did, and let go of any anger I have towards them now in Jesus name."

The Word says in Proverbs 26:2,

As a bird that is wandering, as a swallow that is flying, so a curse without a cause shall not alight.

If your heart is filled with bitterness and anger, you are opening the door to a curse. This step closes the door you have opened to the enemy, so that he can no longer 'land' his curse in your life.

Step 2

Follow the guidelines given in these verses from Matthew 18:15 to 17, to bring reconciliation between you and the person.

Moreover if your brother trespasses against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone: if he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he will not listen to [you, then] take with you one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every [rhema] word may be established. And if he fails to listen to them, tell [it] to the church: but if he fails to listen to the church, let him be to you as a heathen person and a tax collector.

Step 3

"In Jesus' name I break spiritual links with (name of person) and close my spirit off from them. I reject any curse that has entered because of this person and close any door that I have opened."


Occult Involvement

Examples of Sin Committed

√ Partaking of psychic readings, tarot cards, horoscopes, palm reading, etc.

√ Being associated with people or being involved in the occult, such as psychics, Voodoo, witchcraft, white magic, Wicca's, New Age, etc.

√ Being associated with people or being involved in false religions, such as Free Masonry, Jehovah's Witness, Mormonism, Buddhism, etc.

Possible Effects of the Curse

Note: This is in addition to the root signs of a curse, which are fear, loss of control, destruction, loss and strife.

√ Fearful, demonic dreams and weird spiritual manifestations.

√ Demonic visions and experiences filled with fear.

√ 'Knowing' or 'seeing' things before they happen. An example of this is seeing someone in a dream or vision having a heart attack and then they do have one in real life.

The Steps to Take

Follow the steps given in James 4:7. You must do these things.

Step 1

Confess your sin and ask the Lord for forgiveness.

Step 2

Resist Satan and take back the license you gave him. Renounce the hold he has on you as a result of your sin.

Step 3

Ask the Lord to remove the effects of this sin from your life and put blessing in it's place.

An Example Prayer to Pray

Step 1

"Lord, I submit my spirit, my soul and my body to you. I ask you to forgive me for going to a psychic to find answers and opening my heart and spirit to Satan. Please forgive me for not having faith in you and not looking to you for the answers I needed."

It does not matter which words you use. The important thing is to speak each word from your heart. Express everything you feel inside to the Lord, as if He is sitting right in front of you. You can take your time.

Once you have expressed what is on your heart, know that the Lord has forgiven you by His grace. You have been cleansed from your sin and can now be confident in coming to the Lord.

If you are feeling like you can't accept forgiveness because your sin is too great, you must stand on this Scripture from 1 John 1:9 which says,

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

It does not matter what you feel. You only need to believe that God's Word is true, and that when He says He has forgiven you, you have been forgiven. It is a step of faith.

Note: Do not move onto Step 2 until you have this assurance, or you will not have the confidence to resist Satan.

Step 2

"Satan, I resist you now. I have been forgiven, and now I am taking away every license I have given to you by going to a psychic. I renounce every involvement with the occult and tell you to leave.

I command every demon associated with this sin to leave now in Jesus' name and I close the door behind you. I reject your lies and your condemnation. You will no longer have a hold on me or have your way in my life."

Always remember that you have the authority to tell Satan to leave, and if you opened the door to Him, only you can kick him out. The Word says this in Luke 10:19.

Behold, I have given to you the authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the [dynamic] power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

You must know and believe that Satan has no power over you, unless you gave him that power through sin. You can be bold in Jesus' name, knowing that you are forgiven and that Satan cannot touch you.

Step 3

"Thank you Jesus that you have forgiven me and removed the effects of the curse from my life. I ask you to bring blessing where there was a curse and have your way in my life. Thank you Jesus. Amen."

You are now forgiven and free of this curse. You can fellowship with Jesus and talk to Him openly, knowing that He loves you and desires to bring blessing into your life.

Satan hates losing, so if he tries to bring you under guilt and condemnation because of this sin, you must reject his lies and tell him to go. This sin has been placed under the blood of Jesus and is in the past. Be confident now in receiving blessing from the Lord and keeping Satan out of your life.

Note: If you have not personally been involved in the occult, but someone in your family or someone you have been closely connected with has, you must also follow the steps in Breaking Links with this person.


Removing Guilt

Examples of Sin Committed

√ You said something you should not have said, and now you feel guilt and regret for the harm your words caused.

√ You failed in a certain area by not walking in faith, hope and love.

√ You feel condemned for not doing something you feel you should have done.

Possible Effects of the Curse

√ Satan gladly adds to your feeling of guilt and failure by telling you lies such as,

"God cannot bless you until you get this right."

Or, "You cannot dare ask the Lord for anything until you've done what He's asked of you."

√ You lose all hope of ever succeeding. You end up feeling depressed, without any desire to push through. This in turn opens the door to Satan, because you responded to your situation incorrectly where you should have gone to the Lord for help instead.

√ You find yourself failing more and more in the very thing that is causing you to feel condemned, instead of rising up in victory.

The Steps to Take

Step 1

Clear your conscience before the Lord. Confess your sin and ask for forgiveness.

Step 2

Rise in confidence and tell Satan to take his lies and keep them. Close the door on his curse.

Step 3

Get a revelation of the Lord's love for you and how He does not condemn you. He is the one who will give you the power to overcome every problem.

Step 4

If you are finding it hard to overcome the guilt of this problem, share your heart with someone who is spiritually discerning like your spouse, spiritual leader or friend. Ask them to pray with you and follow these steps to victory.

An Example Prayer to Pray

Step 1

"Lord, I have failed you and sinned. Please forgive me for not walking in your Spirit and listening to your voice. I ask you to cleanse me and help me walk in your love."

There is no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus. Your sins are forgiven you and you do not have to feel the guilt and condemnation or guilt anymore.

If you cannot shake that feeling of failure, then you must realize that Satan is lying to you and stopping you from walking in boldness and confidence towards God.

See that the Lord has cleansed you, and get angry at the devil for trying to keep you in bondage. Follow step 2 in a firmness, not backing down, because you know what the Word says and that you are indeed forgiven.

Step 2

"Satan, I close the door that I opened to you through my failure. I am forgiven and will no longer accept your condemnation and guilt. Take your lies now and leave in Jesus' name!"

Amen! Rise now in freedom and joy, because the Lord Jesus loves you so much and has plans for you that are good and not evil.


Sentimental Objects and Family Heirlooms

Examples of Sin Committed

√ Passing a special object down from generation to generation, making it a family heirloom. Examples of these are jewelry, furnishings, a Bible or books, etc.

√ Holding onto and giving highest importance to an object that was given to you by someone.

Possible Effects of the Curse

√ The root signs of a curse, which are fear, loss of control, destruction, loss and strife.

The Steps to Take

Step 1

Throw any family heirlooms you have away.

Step 2

If you would prefer to give away or sell the item, you can pray over it and remove any possible contamination before doing this.

An Example Prayer to Pray

Step 1

Giving these objects such importance does not glorify God and can even be classed as idol worship. You must reassess your commitment to the Lord and the true value of this object.

The Lord desires to draw you closer to Him, and while He does not condemn you for holding onto this object, it is a blockage in the closeness He desires with you.

Step 2

"In Jesus name I shine the light of Jesus on this object and take it out of darkness. I let go of any sentimental feelings I have towards this object and give it to you Jesus."


Speaking Blessing

Examples Where Speaking Blessing is Needed

√ A curse has entered into your life and brought destruction.

√ Your job or business is not going very well.

√ Your family is not in perfect harmony.

The Steps to Take

Step 1

Instead of being defeated by the enemy and allowing him to bring destruction into your life, you must simply speak blessing. The Word tells us to do this in 1 Peter 3:9.

Not responding to evil with evil, or condemnation with condemnation: but instead blessing; knowing that you are called to this, that you should inherit a blessing.

An Example Prayer to Pray

Step 1

"Thank you Lord for giving me only good things. I speak blessing on my business now and say that it will prosper. I open the door to the blessing and anointing of the Lord. I say that the business is blessed, because my God supplies all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

You can change the words according to your situation and however you feel the Holy Spirit leading you. It is also far more powerful quoting scriptures from the Word.

As you are praying, 'see' the pictures of blessing. See your business prospering and growing. Be open to the Spirit to give you revelation on what to pray.


The Law of Judgment

Examples of Sin Committed

√ Hating the way your mother or father raised you and saying something like,

"I will never be like my mother (or father)."

√ Making an inner vow that you will never do a certain thing.

√ Judging or condemning the actions of another person.

Possible Effects of the Curse

Note: This is in addition to the root signs of a curse, which are fear, loss of control, destruction, loss and strife.

√ You find yourself doing the very thing you hated in your mother or father. For example you hated the way your father always shouted at you as a child, but now you find yourself shouting at your own children in the same way.

√ Your spouse or a friend starts acting in the same way as a person from your past that you do not like. This usually causes much strife that can break up relationships.

For example, a boy hates the way his mother tries to make decisions for him and control his life. As he grows up and gets married, suddenly his wonderful, submissive wife changes and becomes controlling just like his mother.

√ You find yourself falling into and struggling with a particular sin you always hated and condemned others for doing.

The Steps to Take

Step 1

Identify the judgment or vow you made.

Step 2

Repent and take back the judgment you made.

Step 3

If your judgment was made out of bitterness to someone, speak forgiveness to them in the spirit.

An Example Prayer to Pray

Step 2

"Lord I ask you to forgive me for making a judgment against my mother and condemning the way she was. I take back the words I spoke and the vow I made in my heart, that I would never be like her. I remove the license I gave Satan through my hurt and bitterness."

Step 3

"Mom, I forgive you for all the hurt you caused me. I understand that you were doing the best you could and were yourself hurting inside. I let go of the bitterness I have towards you and will not bring up the past again."
