TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I Am not a man that I could lie. I Am true to My Word. In the Old Testament, curses were passed down because there was no redemption. When My beloved Son came, that changed. He purchased redemption for all of you. Come to Me and be set free.
BLESSINGS OR CURSES?
Make no mistake, many curses come from your bloodline. Where there’s a curse in your family history, I guarantee it’s because there is no redemption. Redemption removes the curse. Here are some examples:
“…you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me…” – Exodus 20:5
Iniquities are generational curse passed down because of a word spoken against someone or an inner vow being made – akin to saying, “I will never,” “I cannot,” “I won’t.” When you say things like this, you’re taking the future out of God’s hands. Now, He can’t use you in that situation because you refuse to be used.
Now, here’s an understanding of a blessing that is generational because there is redemption,
“…but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.” – Exodus 20:6
This is a curse where there is no redemption:
“Our fathers sinned and are no more, but we bear their iniquities.” – Lamentation 5:7
Here’s an example of where it’s right and there is redemption:
“You show lovingkindness to thousands, and repay the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them—the Great, the Mighty God, whose name is the Lord of hosts.” – Jeremiah 32:18
What’s real is, both of these things are happening at the same time. There is a curse being passed down and there is also a blessing depending upon which side of the Cross you live on. You and I need to be determined, right here, right now, that we’re going to live on the Promised Land side of the Cross and not the Egyptian side of the Cross. Amen.
That as Christians, you and I get to live out something that blesses us and blesses everything behind us. Christ purchased redemption for all on the cross. Break the chains that bind so you too can be free.
