The Truth About Generational Curses
Article received through the Holy Spirit with all honor and glory to my KING!
His Emp(a)thy Glove Cathy Meijer
After all the discussions on the internet about baptism, the great tribulation, and other issues, I am aware of another issue 'debated' in 'heated' discussions; Generational curses!
One person is swearing upon it; the other denies the existence of it!
I choose to stay afar from the entanglement coming from within these discussions.
That is what the Bible teaches me in Galatians 5,26 (NASB, KJV, NIV) "Let us not become boastful (be desirous of vain glory; conceited), challenging one another. (provoking), envying one another".
Being in 'debate' with a wrong attitude gives the devil an open door to throw flaming missiles of disagreement and division;
The Lord, however, has given me this urge upon my heart, and I have something to share about generational curses!
As His children and followers of Yeshua, we should be able to handle the biggest challenge of our faith today.
That is, not only realizing the understanding of Yeshua's/Jesus' prayer -but also practicing it. And living by and for His Word spoken forth as it is written in
"that they may all be one (that all of them may be one); even as Thou, Father, art in Me, (Father just as you are in Me), and I in Thee (You), that they also may be in Us (one in Us, may they also be in Us); (so) that the world may believe that Thou (You) didst (has, have) send (sent) Me."

LOVE EACH OTHER AND DON'T JUDGE!
Every time I am on blogs and websites and see how ministries and servants of the Lord being pilloried by name, I feel in my heart the pain of Abba's father-heart!
He is not the One who asked us to go down this road - to threaten each other!
If you think you see another ministry or servant straying from
His way, then you can pray for it!
And then ask your Lord and Master if there is more to be done, other than prayer and if perhaps He can do something through you for this ministry or person?
Doesn't that seem like a better idea than what we do at this moment? How the world witnesses God's children shooting each other down!
Now we are 'burning' each other down again in the issue "are there generational curses or not?"
"You shall not worship them (idols) or serve them (idols); for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me."
This scripture is used in and out of context in these discussions over the matter of generational curses!
Some use the interpretation of this scripture word to prove that the existence of generational curses has been annulled, and others interpret the word precisely in this way to prove that generational curses still exist. But either way, generational curses are linked to punishment.
However, because of the experiences that happened in my own life,
and the dozens of examples of others who have passed through my life, or those who have walked into my home for the healing and deliverance work to which the Lord has called me by His Spirit, I can assure you of one thing - GENERATION CURSES exist!
It is not in vain that the Lord says:
"MY PEOPLE ARE DESTROYED FOR LACK OF KNOWLEDGE!"
Hosea 4:6 "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge."
It is not that God wants to punish us for the misdeeds of our fathers and ancestors, but because of whole generations who did not turn to God
- they never humbled themselves, nor confessed and acknowledged their sins - many people are now bearing the consequences of that!
Now is the time to use our mouths and speak these things out in the light!
NOTE: This is VERY IMPORTANT: We are not going to dig into our family tree.
We are going to move when God gives revelations!
When He does not reveal Himself to you, do NOTHING!
When people come for healing and deliverance, I know nothing but their first name.
The Father, Himself, reveals things to me regarding what took place in the ancestors!
And during the many years I am involved in the deliverance ministry,
I can testify - with all honor to my Lord - that He always points out precisely what it takes to set someone free!
Example from my book "Hephzibah."
When I was healed and delivered by the Lord, I noticed how many curses rest on entire families because of their ancestors' sins. And because of that, people are shackled. Since I have been in the so-called "deliverance" ministry myself, I notice again and again how clean the Lord makes us when we allow Him to do so. When curses are broken, whole families are changed! Even those who have not (yet) accepted the Lord get a chance to recognize Him better! Dark veils are removed when curses are invalidated, and chains are broken.
The One who prays can also acknowledge sins on behalf of the forefathers (this happens through revelation from the Lord); black veils of sin and iniquity, are removed in the heavenly places.
I remember a young lady who came to me because everything in her life was continuously going wrong. Especially in the financial realm, but anyhow there was a struggle, always that struggle. The Lord revealed to me that upon her family line laid a sin that was never acknowledged/or known.
They had stolen in WWII. from His Apple of His eye, the Jews!
When the Jewish people were transported to the camps, they had to leave their homes and personal issues. But many of them made arrangements with neighbors to use false 'contract of sales.'
The house was so-called 'sold", but behind the (false) contract, the neighbor made the promise that when the Jews returned to their home, they could reinhabit it. Records made after WWII showed merciless - that this small nation (The Netherlands) heaped up immense guilt upon itself. Because the neighbors did not keep their promise.
They did not give the houses back to their owners and sold personal stuff.
Or it was confiscated by the neighbor.
So too in the family of the young lady, such things had occurred, as the Lord had revealed to me. When I had to tell her this, she was very shocked because she loved Father's Nation.
Immediately, we prayed, and she confessed on behalf of her family this enormous guilt; she humbled herself on behalf of them and asked forgiveness!
Three weeks after our prayer together, I received an e-mail wherein she witnessed an enormous breakthrough in her life.
She told me:
"I have other work with a chance to study and with an allowance higher than I ever received before!"
You might think, 'what is so important to pray these things out for and give them to the Lord'! Answer: Because then He can change something in your life! The ancestors' sin needs to be brought into the light for it not to attach (cling) to the new generation! When sins are not being confessed, but on the other hand kept hidden, it will burden the generations to come.
It all surrounds we need to confess the sin! Because secrets and hidden matters have a strength in them that can cause darkness and pain, and sorrow for generations to come.
My testimony answers the question:
"Can newborn believers still have demons in them and walk around with curses in the family and lineage lines?"
I do not have to doubt I am the living testimony!
In any case, we never must try to keep a sin secret! That is a hopeless task because our Father knows everything! He reads our hearts! When we use our voice and confess it to the Lord, we acknowledge the sin so that it comes into the light.
God can cleanse us even in the little corners of our hearts and souls where sin can be that we are not even aware of, then something happens, then He can put it all away so He can give us more of His Spirit!
Enough, more than enough examples I have from my own life and of the lives of those whom Father has sent to me to be redeemed.
Have I studied theology...have I knowledge...No. Dead and empty to my flesh and carnal thoughts, I see how He works through me, and I will always give Him the glory!
The last thing I want to bring up in this open letter is how people misunderstand the realization of the sacrifice and crucifixion of Yeshua/Jesus!
Many people think that the Old Covenant, the Old Testament, is taken away; Yeshua/Jesus has come as its substitute - they say!
Because they are misreading and misinterpreting this Word:
Hebrews 10, 9 "then He said, 'BEHOLD (LO, HERE I AM), I AM come to do
He takes away (sets aside) the first to raise up the second.
second to set up. (so that He may raise up the second - Gk)." You have to ask yourself, ask HIM,
WHAT is HE taking away?
Burnt offerings and peace offerings, THESE were taken away, Yeshua/Jesus Himself came to substitute these things!
HE IS THE LAMB OF GOD!
With these He did not substitute the Old Testament or the Torah or the Laws of God!
He came to FULFILL IT, to lay the foundation;
establish; settle; enforce; confirm; acknowledge YEHSUA, IS THE TORAH!
The effects of Christ's offer:
5. "Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says, 'Sacrifice and offering Thou hast not desired, but a body Thou hast prepared for me;
6. In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin Thou hast taken no pleasure.
7. Then I said, 'Behold I have come to do thy will, O God.'"
8. After saying above, "Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and
sacrifices for sin Thou hast not desired, nor hast Thou taken pleasure in them" (which are offered according to the Law),
9. then He said, "Behold, I have come to do thy will." He takes away the first in order to establish the second.
10. By this will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
11. and every priest stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins;
12. but He, having offered one sacrifice for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of God,
13. waiting from that time onward until His enemies be made a footstool for His Feet.
14. For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified.
15. And the Holy Spirit also bears witness to us; for after saying,
16. "This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord; I will put My Laws upon their heart, and upon their mind I will write them,"
17. "and their sins and their lawless deed I will remember no more."
18. Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any offering for sin."
Now I can imagine on account of the Word that someone would say, 'you see! We have been sanctified once and for all.' He became the sacrificial Lamb, and we do not need to sacrifice an animal. But during the process of crucifying the flesh, we make mistakes. And these mistakes need to be confessed! And yes, notwithstanding that you became a child of God, there can still be curses that need to be broken. And when you come out of the occult or other things that have happened in your life that could have become attached (cling) upon you, then deliverance is necessary! Anyhow, the Spirit of God leads us to confess things out of the past and so, to acknowledge them. And He can send you to the persons out of the past to ask forgiveness and make things right.
Also, what is especially important is in how much Yeshua/Jesus is The King in your life?
As the Lord hand-picked skilled craftsmen to build the Temple in the Old Testament, and as He only started living there when the Holy of Holies was completed, so we are now a temple of God.
OUR BODY IS NOW THE TEMPLE OF GOD.
And now He chooses for Himself ONE skillful craftsman, THE HOLY SPIRIT, who may rebuild our body, HIS TEMPLE. That will expand the dwelling place of His Spirit, and He can manifest Himself more and more through us! He is the One Who wants to write the Law upon the heart and wants to help us in the circumcision of our heart!
To die to the flesh so He can shine His Light through us!
The breaking of curses (through the revelations the Lord gives us) sets us free from darkness and offers us the opportunity to let Him shine even more in and from us! It is not a punishment, it is more that we suffer the consequences, and therefore it is necessary to put the matter into the light!
Breaking these curses tear down the dangers and curses in the Heavenly places! He will forgive us because it is FORGIVEN, and we do not need to sacrifice an animal. But we still have to confess our sins and what the Lord reveals further in us to bring into the light! Let us not burn down each other and judge. Leave the judgment unto Him.
In conclusion, a word the Lord gave me once:

"Killed By Friendly Fire"
This evening I talked to our friend Teus about the army of the Lord and the so-called forerunners that are waiting for new orders!
They must wait a little longer because the Lord is bringing His Army into one accord in open line!
Suddenly, the Lord brought an incident which happened with our soldiers in the Dutch army, into my mind!
Two of them were shot by so-called “friendly fire”.
I am sitting at the computer and I am waiting for the Word He wants to speak:
Thus Saith The Lord:
“My children, there is a lot going on.
My faithful ones are almost ready to go!
But there are two divisions in My Army...
There are the forerunners, the ones who were on the front, calling for others to wake-up, while others were still stuck in their rules and doctrines.
And I want to say about those...That I make them ready now, to get them out of their comfort zones, to also stand up in ME!
I need to say to My forerunners to stand still for a little moment!
They are almost hit by their own fire!
Perhaps they wonder why this is necessary, this period of waiting...this barren time.
But My army must be one, they must understand each other and listen to Me!
Also, I have a word of admonishment:
Some of My children are shooting their own brothers and sisters with “friendly
fire” and ammunition out of My Word!
They use My Word to judge and I do not tell them to do this!
Give Me the space to do what I need to do through My Spirit, to make them ready for what is coming!
Do not wound each other! Stop firing your judgements like bullets!
An army that wounds or kills each other will become totally powerless and it will be impossible to work with each other!
Give your heart to Me, tell Me what is eating you…and what you think you see in that other person that you think is so wrong...
I can read the heart, only I know who is faithful...
You are not each other’s enemy!
For your wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities,
against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
You do not fight against each other! You are tearing down My Body!
Stop doing this! I am gathering you!
The forerunners need to stop and wait for a while, so the others have the chance to prepare themselves for what will soon begin!
Are you ready?
Do not be scared. I live within you. My Spirit that resides in you is powerful!
Do not be ruthless either- that is also not good!
My army needs to listen to My voice and then act on what I tell them to do!
The bullets that you will need to shoot must be ordered by Me, out of My Word, that will convict those I have prepared to receive them, and it will change circumstances. Love one another!
Know I see everything, and I hear everything!
Each word that you speak not according to My Will is hurting My heart!
Every word that hurts one of My children hurts Me also!
How can you say that you love me, if you hate Me living inside of your brother?
You walk in darkness then, not in My light!
Repent from this evildoing, give your hatred and bitterness and jealousy to Me!
I will replace this with My Love!"
1 John 2.
8 Again, I write a new commandment to you, which is true in him and in you; because the darkness is passing away, and the true light already shines. 9 He who says he is in
the light and hates his brother, is in the darkness even until now. 10 He who loves his
brother remains in the light, and there is no occasion for stumbling in him. 11 But he who hates his brother is in the darkness, and walks in the darkness, and does not know where he is going because the darkness has blinded his eyes.
3. 1 John 3,15, 20
He who does not love his brother remains in death. 15 Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life remaining in him.
20 If a man says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who doesn’t love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? 21 This commandment we have from him, that he who loves God should also love his brother.
