(Written By Earline Moody)



This lesson is an overview of curses. See what you think about the following

It is amazing to me how many areas of the Bible are not explored and taught or
preached by the five-fold ministry. It seems like God shows us a never ending
list of topics to teach and minister on that are not commonly or frequently
taught. Apparently most ministers choose areas of the Bible that they are
comfortable with and will further their ministry. The areas that they are not
comfortable with, or are controversial, or unpopular, or might cause them to
lose some of their congregation or offerings, they avoid like the plague. This
may be an excuse before man but it is not an excuse before God, and they will
have to answer to Him in the Great Day of Judgement. Ministers and Christian
Leaders - please think about standing before God and explaining why you did not
teach certain areas of the Bible.

Another weakness is the minister that says that you have to keep it simple so
that the baby Christians will understand. So, they teach the same thing over
and over again. The baby Christians are continually fed milk and are never fed
the meat of the Word of God. These Christians never grow up to be mature,
strong Christians. Many of these baby Christians will fall away from Jesus
Christ and go back out into the world. Can you see that the minister is doing
his congregation a disservice?

It is clear that the Body of Christ needs the five-fold ministry which consists
of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. Many pastors would
like to make it a four-fold ministry and eliminate the teachers. They say that
the pastor is the pastor-teacher and there is no separate teaching ministry. If
this is true, then why don't they teach the whole Word of God and not just a
part of it? We need teachers who expound the whole Bible in a systematic manner
so that the Body of Christ can have a working knowledge of the Bible and put it
into practice.

There is a clear difference between preaching and teaching. Preaching is for
the moment to stir people up and get them to make decisions in their lives.
They walk out of church and usually quickly forget the message. Teaching is for
the future to get people to remember the message and apply it to their lives.
Teaching gives them a sound foundation to build on and then gives them the
structure to build on the foundation.

There are many weaknesses in the church today which cause the Body of Christ to
be in a weakened condition. We can not live on emotionalism for long. It makes
you feel good for the service but it won't last when the trials of living in
this world come to us. We need to have the solid foundation of the Bible to
support us in trials and tribulations. It is nice to feel emotional about our
salvation. We are not saved by feelings but by our belief in the Word of God.

Another weakness is catering to our fleshly desires. For example, the desire to
have possessions. I Tim. 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil:
which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced
themselves through with many sorrows. This is teaching the congregation to look
to God for blessings and possessions rather than what they can do for God. In
other words, praying the give me and mine, my family of four and no more,
selfish type of prayer. Do you agree or disagree with these thoughts?

There is a lot in the Bible that deals with how to bless others and how to be
blessed. This is the balance to cursing others and being cursed. We hear a lot
taught about God blessing you but not much taught about how you can bless
others in thought, word and deed. The emphasis is on what God will do for you
without you having to do anything. Christianity is not a free lunch and we are
not on welfare. To be an effective Christian requires considerable effort.

There are no blessings in the Bible that are unconditional. For every blessing
there is a condition that you must fulfill before you receive the blessing. In
other words, this is the if you see so often in the verses either stated
directly or understood. Deut. 28:1-2 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt
(shalt not) hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe
and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy
god will set (not set) thee on high above all nations of the earth: and all
these blessings shall (shall not) come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou
shalt (shalt not) hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God. The reverse is
true also: And it shall come to pass, if thou (shalt not) hearken diligently
unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments
which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy god will (not set) thee on
high above all nations of the earth: and all these blessings (shall not) come
on thee, and overtake thee, if thou (shalt not) hearken unto the voice of the
Lord thy God.

A psychic prayer is any prayer that does not line up with the Word of God. If
you pray contrary to the Bible, then you are praying not to God but to Satan.
Satan then has the right before God to loose demons on the people that you
prayed for as well as yourself. Praying psychic prayers is a good way to curse
others and to be cursed in return.

There are two ways that we can curse another person: thought or speaking. We
can pray a psychic prayer or we can speak against another person either in our
thoughts or out loud. We need to be careful what we think and speak, as well as
what we do.

The words we think or speak go out into the air and they have power to do good
or evil. Ecc. 10:20 Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not
the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and
that which hath wings shall tell the matter. Could this be a demon spirit that
God is talking about carrying your thoughts or words to the one that you are
thinking or talking about?

The first curses that we can receive are those placed on us by our ancestors
which include our parents. These curses come down the ancestral line and are
transferred by familiar spirits that are familiar with our family ancestral

The ancestral curses are started by our ancestors committing some sin against
God that is mentioned in the Bible. God would not curse us without warning us
beforehand. A good example is the curse of worshiping other gods. Deut. 5:7-9
Thou shalt have none other gods before me. Thou shalt not make thee any graven
image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the
earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: Thou shalt not bow
down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous
God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and
fourth generation of them that hate me. If our ancestors worshipped other gods
in the manner described in these verses, then they cursed their descendents to
the third and fourth generation. We are innocent and committed no sin but we
still are cursed because of what those did who were in authority over us.
However, it is not hopeless, God gave us a way to break the curses on us and
our descendents.

The parents can curse the child in the womb, after the child is born and until
it dies. This is frightening when you think about the consequences of your
actions on your children.

Common examples of cursing the child in the womb include conceiving the child
in lust, not wanting the child when it is conceived, and failing in an abortion

Common examples of cursing the child after it is born include rejecting the
child in some manner such as wanting a boy when a girl is born and not quickly
changing their minds, cursing the child in thought or words, mistreating the
child mentally, physically, spiritually or materially such as physical,
emotional and sexual abuse.

You can be cursed by others other than your ancestors. These include those in
the grip of the Devil: Satan worshipers, witches and warlocks, covens, fortune
tellers and anyone practicing witchcraft. They include those in Christianity
who would speak against you and pray psychic prayers for you.

How can you be cursed by these people? Prov. 26:2 As the bird by wandering, as
the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. There must be a
cause for the curse to land. We have not seen anyone that lives a blameless,
sinless, perfect life according to the whole Word of God. All you have to do is
to read or listen to the Bible and see if you fulfill its provisions 100%. It
is very sobering to see how far you miss the target that God set for us to aim
at. We will never be perfect until Jesus Christ finishes the task in the

Other than being cursed by others, you can curse yourself. You can do this by
sinning against God. For example, say that you conceived a bastard before
marriage. It does not matter that you then get married; the damage has already
been done. Deut. 23:2 A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the
Lord; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of
the Lord. What you and your girl friend did was to sin by committing
fornication, a sin listed in the Bible. Both of you cursed yourselves and ten
generations of your descendents with the curse of the bastard. These familiar
spirits will work to cause family and church alienation, and a perpetuation of
bastards generation after generation.

You can sin against your own body. I Cor. 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that
a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth
against his own body. This is the only sin that you do that sins against your
body and brings curses directly against you. This sin can lead to Hell
(spiritual death), physical diseases (physical death or living torment), and
many problems in your life (death of marriage, etc.).

When you curse yourself, you also curse your descendents. I know of no one-
generation curse; they are multiple-generation curses. We have discussed the
curse of the bastard and the curse of worshiping other gods; these carry a ten,
and a three to four generation curse respectively.

Where do curses come from? They come from God and are carried out by Satan with
permission from God. Curses can be found listed in the Bible. Satan can not
fabricate curses to place on you the way he fabricates lies. Deut. 28:15 But it
shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy
God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command
thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee.

Let's look at where curses come from and where they go: remember that all
curses originate with God. Curses can come to you from your ancestors or those
who are not your ancestors, especially those who have authority over you. You
can curse yourself. Curses can go out from you to your descendents or to others
not your descendents.

There are probably sixty-six curses that can be easily identified in the Bible
by simply looking up the word curse as well as the words cursed and cursing.
Most of the curses are not so easily identified but must be discovered by
studying the Bible and practicing deliverance. We believe that there is a curse
associated with every verse in the Bible that you disobey. Deuteronomy 28 is a
chapter of the blessings for obedience and the curses for disobedience.
Compare Deut. 28:1-2 (blessings) with 28:15 (curses). Notice the little word
all and the five times it is used. The corollary to the analogy of all
blessings or all curses is that in between all and none are some blessings and
some curses. You can be all blessed or all cursed or partially blessed and
partially cursed.

God sends demons and evil on people for disobedience of His Commandments. The
following are paraphrases of verses about this subject. He will put a yoke of
iron on your neck. Sickness can be caused by demons. God sends evil spirits to
do some of His missions. God allowed Satan to prove Job. The deceived and the
deceiver are His. He created evil and the waster to destroy. He has deceived
and sent strong delusions. He sent a messenger in the flesh. Isa. 45:7 I form
the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do
all these things.

These actions by God cause many things to happen to people: sickness, cruelty,
lying, seduction, death, deceit, troubling, confusion, lethargy, misery,
destruction, ignorance, sorrow, wickedness, badness, adversity, affliction,
calamity, displeasure, distress, grief, harm, hurt, mischief, sadness, trouble,
vex, wretchedness, wrong, perishing, decay, ruin, corruptness, destroying,
falling, deluded, allured, enticed, persuaded, slumber, stupor, hardening,
deceit, error, etc.

We have seen the teaching, ministry and counseling about Ahab men and Jezebel
women help many people. You can trace these curses back to Adam and Eve in the
Garden when they fell from the Grace of God into sin.

Queen Jezebel was a prime example of controlling others. A Jezebelic wife and
mother is actually practicing witchcraft as she tries to control her family.
Charismatic witches use personal prophecy to control others. Charismatic
witches are Jezebels.

Another aspect of Ahab and Jezebel is Charismatic Witchcraft. Witchcraft is the
practice of trying to control others for personal gain. Charismatic witchcraft
is exercising control over other Christians by leaders or by anyone within the
congregation. A lot can be written about this subject. There are many demons
associated with control of others. This practice is basically mind control.

Soul ties are formed with those to whom we submit our wills. Soul ties can be
formed with leaders of the church as well as with anyone in the occult that we
go to for help. A dictatorial pastor will form soul ties with his congregation.
The church leaders are cursed by trying to take the place of God in our lives.
The congregation is cursed for following man rather than God.

We have no right to control others! God gave us a free will and even He will
not try to control us! Therefore, we enter into agreement with Satan and his
demons when we attempt to control others, and we are practicing witchcraft!

We believe that probably everyone has the curse of the bastard and the curse of
incest on them if they have not forgiven their ancestors, and broken the curse
off of them and their descendents. You can see the pattern repeating generation
after generation.

Indian curses come from the Indians worshiping idols in their worship services
and Indian rites practiced by the tribes. These curses come from worshiping
other gods and practicing the occult.

Earline had Cherokee Indian ancestors on both sides of her family within three
generations. Because of these curses, her family had heart trouble and many men
died therefrom. Earline, as a woman, even had heart trouble.

The following is her testimony: I had a heart condition which was unusual. It
never occurred with regularity nor under any specific condition. While taking a
tread mill test, I experienced tremendous pain in the chest, arms and neck.
Having been examined by a 'heart specialist' in Minneapolis, who told me that
my heart was good but he had written 'death by heart attack' on many people's
certificates like myself. These were people who didn't really have anything
wrong with their hearts.

A year or so after my dad's death I found my heart acting up again. Sometimes
one to five years would elapse between seizures. I began to ask God to show me
why my brothers, dad, dad's brothers and his dad all had heart problems.

He showed me Exodus 20 and Ezekiel 18. He told me to repent for my ancestors
and myself for the sin of idol worship in Leviticus 26:40-41. The curse of
idol worship follows the blood line. I did these things and have been free
since then. I was only the second generation from previous generations that
sinned before God.

Ex. 20:1-6, These are the ten commandments which show the generational curse.
Lev. 26:36-42, God promises to remember those that repent. Eze. 18:14-18, We
can recover from the sin of our ancestor. Notice that God will show mercy when
we repent.

Deut. 7:26 Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house lest thou
be a cursed thing like it; but thou shalt utterly abhor it for it is a cursed
thing. If you have cursed objects on your body or in your possessions that your
carry around, or that are in your home, then your are cursed by God. You have
invited the demons to attack you and the people that live in your home.

My favorite example is pierced ears which is a sign of slavery in the Bible.
Jesus Christ wants us to live a simple life without religious objects or graven
images. If the men take off religious objects and the women to take off jewelry
except for wedding rings and watches, this will help in the deliverance to get
rid of the demons.

Therefore, be very careful how you think, pray, speak and act. Study your Bible
to find out how God thinks and acts so that you can think, speak, pray and act
in accordance with His Will. Also study to see how you should bless, rather
than curse, others as well as yourself and your family.

Obey and be blessed - disobey and be cursed! It's your choice. You will be
blessed in proportion to the amount of the Bible you follow and cursed in
proportion to the amount of the Bible you do not follow. We are told to keep
all the words of the Holy Bible.

Periodically, Earline and I had to break the curses that are placed against us
and our ministry. You can feel the spiritual pressure building up and it is
necessary to go to spiritual war. We forgive those who knowingly or unknowingly
are praying or speaking against us, break any curses or soul ties, send the
demons back to those who sent them, and pray that their eyes will be opened.

PRAYER - Father, we want to bless others and be blessed rather than to curse
others and be cursed. Please make us a blessing and take away the curse. We
will get rid of cursed objects in our possession. We ask that you, other people
and our descendents forgive us for anything we have done to bring the curse. We
forgive our ancestors and everyone else that have placed curses on us. Please
forgive these people for psychic prayers, spoken curses, ancestral curses,
parental curses, cursing by others, cursing ourselves, cursing our descendents,
disobedience, Ahab and Jezebel, charismatic witchcraft, conceiving bastards,
having incest, Indian curses, and any other curse known or unknown that is
found in the Holy Word of God.

I now break any curses placed on me or my descendants from uttering a wish of
evil against one; to imprecate evil, to call for mischief or injury to fall
upon; to execrate, to bring evil upon or to; to blast, vex, harass or torment
with great calamities. I break the curses back to ten generations or even to
Adam and Eve on both sides of my family, and destroy every legal hold and every
legal ground that demons have to work in my life. I break curses that follow
in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
