The most common and most destructive generational curses upon families today are the curses of illegitimacy, Incest, murder of innocents(spilling of innocent blood) and witchcraft.
Illegitimacy(born out of wedlock) and Incest are the only two curses in the Bible that affects 10 generations, which amounts to about 2048 descendants from it's sinful root. The majority of mankind is affected by these curses to some degree or another and don't usually realise what this means, but once exposed the patterns seen in families are easily recognizable.
Healing, deliverance and fruitful living are hard pressed to fully take place in a believers life if generational curses are not broken by our authority in the name of Jesus Christ. Future generations stay lost and get worse if these curses are not dealt with. The demonic realm seeks to strengthen their hold on the family line to continue the curse for as many generations as possible.
Christians do commit sin after becoming born again which gives the enemy an instant foothold into their family line through sin. Win Worley used to say, " I hope you enjoyed your sin, you cursed yourself, your children and children's children". We see how serious God is about families with a curse on sexual sin out of wedlock and within the family, being for ten generations.
The enemy see's that it has legal rights according to God's laws to infiltrate a family line if these sins have been committed, these legal rights need to be broken for freedom to take place. This is done by confessing and repenting for our forefathers sins, asking for forgiveness for any involvement in them and breaking the curses verbally in the authority of Christ Jesus along with casting out any demons associated with them.
Because these two curses in essence deal with sexual immorality they attract demons that want to continue the family line in sexual sins to secure their future hold. They can easily be recognised by the characteristics the family shows, such as adultery, fornication, lust, addictions, lewd behaviour and so forth. The main part of these two curses are exclusion from the body of Christ, the will keep you from entering in to the camp of the Lord fully. Detective work is needed along with the Holy Spirit and the gift of discernment. Some characteristics are easily seen and dealt with, while others are well hidden.
James 3:17-18 We are looking to obtain a harvest of righteousness, not a harvest of curses.God has issued a three to four generation curse against the family line of those who worship other god's, but He has issued a curse for ten generations on those who conceive bastards or practice incest. God is more concerned about what we do to our offspring than about worship of other gods. http://www.demonbuster.com/incestan.html
Curse of Illegitimacy(Bastard Curse)
How many children are born out of wedlock in our modern day?God instituted marriage as a holy union between a man and a woman as a protected covenant by God to produce holy children. The opposite of this can also be seen as, unholy children that are born out of marital union with a curse. Marriage as God designed it, is to protect and produce a righteous covering. Any person or agenda that seeks to destroy the sanctity of marriage are most likely moved by this demonic curse to perpetuate it throughout the world and corrupt all of God's seed, thereby leading many into self destruction through sexual sins and immorality. A child born out of wedlock is a child that is not planned for and usually unexpected, leading to a spirit of rejection over the child. Because the child is unplanned and unexpected we can assume the child at that time is not wanted and this will affect the child greatly. Rejection always leads to anger and rebellion and on into other things. Not being wanted and accepted is at the core of their being, they will not feel comfortable in family at home or in the body of Christ. They would feel as though they are adopted in their own family. The curse of illegitimacy, means just that, that they are illegitimate, they came into the world in the wrong way. Couples were ashamed falling pregnant before marriage in the past, and sought to wed to make things right, but conception had already taken place. Nowadays we see even greater selfishness, when a child is born out of wedlock the child is aborted and killed. This will cause a curse of 'murder of innocents' to befall the parents as well.
Deut. 23:2 A bastard shall not enter into church for ten generations.
Curse of Incest(Moab)
Moab was the first generation to be cursed through the sin of incest, he was born to Lot's daughter who got her father Lot drunk with wine and lay with him. His two daughters were deceived into thinking they had to continue their family line themselves, God was angered and pronounced this curse on their family line. Many call the curse of incest the spirit of Moab. Incest may not only be between parent and child but also between siblings, cousins, aunts and so forth.
The Crime DefinedIncest is defined as: “The crime of sexual intercourse or cohabitation between a man and woman who are related to each other within the degrees wherein marriage is prohibited by law” (Black, p. 685). Incest has been held to be repulsive, dangerous, and illegal among many civilizations — even some of the most primitive. In ancient Rome, Augustus implemented a law against incest, and children born to incestuous relationships were deemed illegitimate. Modern laws against incest appear to be grounded mainly in the Levitical code (McClintock, p. 541)Christian Courier.com
Deuteronomy 23:3-6 One conceived in incest shall not enter into church for ten generations.
“But if they confess their iniquity and THE INIQUITY OF THEIR FATHERS, with their unfaithfulness in which they were unfaithful to Me, and that they also have walked contrary to Me … then I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and My covenant with Isaac and My covenant with Abraham I will remember …” (Leviticus 26:40, 42)
“AND WHENEVER YOU STAND PRAYING, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him, that you Father in heaven may also forgive your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your trespasses.” (Mark 11:25)Amazing teaching by - Derek Prince - Release from the Curse

The enemy always seeks to tempt desire so that sin can fully mature to allow him legal grounds into your life, don't fall for it. Keep yourself as pure as possible, there is more at stake than just upsetting your heavenly Father, there is good reason for God telling you to keep yourself from sin. As Win Worley says again,"I hope you enjoyed your sin, you cursed yourself, your children and your childrens children".
Witchcraft, the occult, sexual immorality, Freemasonry, stealing, unforgiveness, sinful anger can all lead to doors being opened to affect you and your children. Be careful in everything that you do. Jesus put it even more plainly when He taught about the heart. He taught that even if you look at a woman lustfully you have committed adultery in your heart. He tells us be perfect as our Father in heaven is perfect. Seems impossible..? why would He tell us this if it was impossible.
Basic Biblical understanding tells us that most mental illness, diseases, poverty, sickness..etc have come about by mankind's own sins, either by the previous generation or of their own doing. This can be seen when the disciples asked Jesus,"Did this man sin or did his parents, that he was born blind?"John9:2. Generational curses are very real and very powerful, but Jesus overcame them by becoming a curse for us on the cross. The problem is that if we sin after becoming born again the generational curse/s afflict us and continue on to the next generation.
The wages of sin is death, because sin opens the door to demons to attack and cloud your mind, taking you away from God's presence; confess, repent and forgive, stay as clean as possible, that God's righteousness may may fully reveal itself in you and your descendents.
Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth
|Jesus became a curse for us on the Cross.|
