Am I Under A Curse? Or A Plague? Part 1

By Pamela Sheppard

Do you believe that curses have been passed on to you from your ancestors, as far back as four generations? If this is what you believe, then you are in denial of the scripture that assures you that those who are in Christ have been delivered from all the power of darkness and the wicked one cannot touch us. (Col. 1:12; 1 John 5:18).

No curse can go through the cross of Christ and have dominion over those who are in Christ. We are not under a curse once we have come through the cross. Every spiritual blessing is for us who are in Christ Jesus (Eph. 1:3). Anyone that insists they are cursed needs to know who they are in Christ, and maybe who Christ is as well. “We have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but the Spirit of adoption (Rom.8:15).

What I have found is that those who have been involved in deliverance ministries have actually brought a curse upon themselves by accepting a specific generational curse as a fact.  As a result, their belief in this teaching actually creates a self-fulfilling prophecy that the worker and the captive actually bring to pass together.  As Paul warned the Galatians, any one who adds to or detracts
from the gospel of Jesus Christ will become CURSED.

Ironically, the generational curses teaching adds to and detracts from the gospel of Jesus Christ, particularly the power of the cross. This teaching promotes a law that hinders grace, and it is by grace that we are set free from the curse of the law. Consequently, those who uphold the “generational curses” doctrine which states that Satan and his demons create curses for Christians because of ones ancestors, actually opens the door to a curse.

Taken a step further, this false teaching actually creates the fear that put those who believe in it in even more bondage than what they may originally have sustained! We as believers “have not received a spirit of fear but power, love and a sound mind.” If you believe this teaching, you are risking the soundness of your mental state, bringing on further anxiery and stress that may “cause you to faint”
when you enter into spiritual battle against demons.

Therefore, if you stand in spiritual warfare with a deliverance worker against a self proclaimed curse that was never there in the first place, you forfeit the grace that is needed to set you free. This teaching is particularly dangerous because it implies that Jesus didn’t break the curse on the cross.  As such, it stands to reason that if you believe that you are in bondage to a generational curse, then you must not be saved.

If you are not saved then you are STILL under the power of darkness and Jesus did not remove your sins and His blood has not cleansed you from sin. Therefore, you have NOT been translated out of darkness and the spiritual weapons of Ephesians 6 will not work for you, if you are in bondage to a generational curse.

So what does the devil get out of this false teaching?

He gets those who teach it and those who believe it to lose grace and to weaken their faith.

Recently, with the death of the man of God, David Wilkerson, some deliverance workers posted on facebook that Wilkerson died  because he was subject to a curse, put on him by witches as retaliation for his exposing witches and witchcraft in the house of God. These workers claimed that they were going to interrogate demons, uncover who was responsible and return curses.

According to the scriptures, if they are correct, then David Wilkerson was not a child of God. If a man who constantly preached the cross was subject to a curse, therefore, he was not under the protection of the cross and the enemy was able to not only touch Wilkerson, but kill him outright. I know that David Wilkerson was a true and faithful prophet of God so no witches or demons were capable of putting a curse on him.

So what happens in instances like these?

Consider this. There is a difference between a curse and a plague.

By the cross, Jesus delivers us from a curse because when we become born again, old things become new and the past is washed in the precious blood of the Lamb, which includes any sins that your ancestors may have committed that could possibly affect YOU.

A curse is specific in that it is an appeal to a supernatural power for harm to come to specific people, places and things. A plague is “different.”

A plague is much more general. Its like a tornado. When it hits NO ONE is spared from its effects and even the innocent who are simply in the wrong place at the time of the tornado. The innocent get swept up with the guilty.

Jesus warned the elect of God to “come out of Her, lest ye be partakers of HER sins and receive of HER plagues.”

If He is referring to the organized church, (and I believe that He is) then the innocent will be partakers of the plagues along with the guilty.

A plague is a widespread affliction, a sudden destructive influx or an outbreak. It can also be persistent, but it is also infectious—in the spirit, a plague can be compared to a highly infectious disease like the bubonic plague. Those who hear the warning and continue to remain in a defiled place are subject to a plague, and the elect of God are not exempt from it.

Since most of those who come to me to be set free from demonic torment were also attending a church that could not deliver them, I simply asked them to give me 90 days of no church attendance. Those who can’t do so are not delivered.

They remain not cursed but “plagued.”

Let a word to the wise be sufficient.

    you say to come out of the organized church. So where do one goes? please clarify. Also you was filled with the holy ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues. And you say you are no longer speaking. And speaking is the evidence after one get baptized in jesus name . So what are you really saying. Now i believe in false tongues . that witches can come in a church and talk in tongues and can curse via the false tongues. i need some clarification.

      You need to watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2g8iwN0tTo&feature=share&list=ULO2g8iwN0tTo.

      As to your question to where does one go. If the Holy Ghost leads you out of organized religion, then you have to trust that you are led by the Spirit of God…even if where He leads is not where you are used to. Some people don’t feel the need to ‘go’ anywhere. They stay home, study, read their Word and fellowship alone with God. And that works fine for them. Others long for and miss the fellowship. They need mentoring, counseling, and many need deliverance from tormenting spirits picked up from religion.

      RESCUE is a safe haven where such people can ‘come,’ per se, not in a traditional sense. Fellowship is not just limited to physically being around a person. It is possible to have true fellowship with like-minded believers…and never have met them in person.

      This is possible-and biblical-since the Word tells us to know NO MAN after the flesh. Yet, most of the church world relegates fellowship to a fleshly weekly experience…where most of the time the flesh is tantalized, stimulated and deceived. Then people leave church with the same demons they went in with.

      See for yourself
