Christians & Curses Video
One of the most common things asked about the Courts of Heaven is also one of the most prevalent things discovered in the Courts. How can a Christian have a Curse? To understand the answer, you will need to know a simple, basic principle. Everything God created in the first chapter of the Bible, He did by speaking words.
- And God said, “Let there be light:” and there was light. (Genesis 1:3 ASV)
- And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” (Genesis 1:6)
- And God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear:” and it was so. (Genesis 1:9 ASV)
In order for anything to happen, God had to declare it, speak it out loud. The Bible tells us that we have been justified and saved from God’s wrath by the blood of Jesus. (Romans 5:9) However, this is not an automatic thing that just happens. We don’t get to go to Heaven because we know Jesus is the Son of God. Even the demons know this and they tremble at His name. (James 2:19) We have to know He is the Son of God in our hearts and confess with our mouth that He is our Lord. Only those who confess that He is Lord, go to Heaven. This same principle applies to curses.
Many Christians will quote this verse about sin, especially concerning curses:
"…the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt…" (1 John 1:7)Taken out of context, this verse seems to say that Jesus did it all, once we take Him as Lord, all our sin is taken care of. This is partially true. We no longer have to PAY for our sins. His blood pays for any sin, however, just like with salvation, there is something for us to do. Let’s look at this verse in the context of what is said around it in the Amplified Version where more accurate meanings are given:
But if we [really] are living and walking in the Light, as He [Himself] is in the Light, we have [true, unbroken] fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt [keeps us cleansed from sin in all its forms and manifestations]. (1 John 1:7)Our sin is continually removed from us “if we really are living and walking in the Light and we are in fellowship with one another.” How is it cleansed from us? Because when you have a relationship, a fellowship with other Christians; there is someone to help us realize when we are in sin! Two verses later, John makes this point:
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:9-10)We have a part to do, we must confess our sins. The blood of Jesus blots out our sin, but we must appropriate it. Jesus paid the price so that we can go boldly before the throne… but we must go! The Courts of Heaven are one place we can approach the Throne of God and we should do so purposefully with specific intentions.
Another verse in Hebrews is often quoted to state that we are perfect and no sin or curse can affect us. There are some who have even gone as far as to say that we have the perfect blood or perfect DNA by using this scripture out of context. Let’s take a look at that as well.
For by a single offering He has forever completely cleansed and perfected those who are consecrated and made holy. (Hebrews 10:14)You must keep reading to find out how to apply this verse:
And also the Holy Spirit adds His testimony to us [in confirmation of this]. For having said, "This is the agreement (testament, covenant) that I will set up and conclude with them after those days, says the Lord: I will imprint My laws upon their hearts, and I will inscribe them on their minds (on their innermost thoughts and understanding)..." (Hebrews 10:15-16)Hebrews 10:14 is about our heart, our spirit, not our bodies. Most of the New Testament speaks of the corruption of the flesh (the body) and the need to continually crucify it. Even though we have sinned and may even sin in the future, these sins do not keep us out of Heaven, that is the Curse of the Law that Jesus paid for and we receive by taking Him as Lord. But our sins can still give the enemy access to us and hinder us from achieving the destiny God has for us. The Bible tells us then there will be no more curses:
Revelation 22:3 - And there shall be no more curse...When Jesus comes back to rule then there will be no more curse, until then, they work under this same principle as salvation. Curses are not immediately broken when we take Jesus as Lord. We have to confess that we turn from whatever allowed that curse to come upon us, then it can be broken by the blood of Jesus.
“....the curse causeless shall not come.” (Proverbs 6:2)A curse must have a reason to come upon a Christian. That reason is sin. In order to remove the generational curse, we must remove the sin from our lives. Then the blood of Jesus has paid the price, it will cleanse us and set us free.
One thing we have discovered by visiting the Courts of Heaven with thousands of people is that curses are not the only thing passed on from our ancestors. A few of the others destructive influences are:

Believers' Boot Camp series
Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
- Knowing what weapons are available
- Learning how to use those weapons
- Receiving orders and following them
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father.
The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.
