Q u e s t i o n s  W e  M a y  H a v e
p a g e  2 4

-I belong to a group that believes that the Old Testament curses are passed on from generation to generation and need to be expiated or these succeeding generations will remain under the curses and that could be one of the reasons I'm in poverty and my family was before me and that, if I'm poor, it's because a curse has been passed on from generation to generation and this allows the devil to cause more poverty and hardships in my life. This is based this on Exodus 20:5. My group has a ministry where one can take classes to learn how to stop these curses which they say are implemented by the devil.

Ancient Job must have thought his life too was cursed, what with all that was happening to him. I mean, talk about a guy who lost everything! He too could have believed in curses being passed on from generation to generation as his kids got touched too, but he didn't and he also didn't see at first why he was having such a negative life. But he eventually did see why.

Let's now look at the verse mentioned in the question:.Exodus 20:5 and it will answer your question, along with the fact all old covenant stuff has been long abolished. I suppose the idols your group are talking about, if they are using this verse, would be whatever consumes one's attention in this day and age eh? Like; maybe a sports car, a lavish lifestyle, workaholic job, etc. And true, these will detract from one's time for Bible study and talking and listening to God time. The advantage to being a workaholic is that working day and night, one earns enough money to pay the doctor when he break's down! 

This passage of Exodus 20:5 was talking to those who would soon agree to be bound by terms.(a contract or a covenant; an agreement).of the old covenant comprising the Old Testament.Mosaic Law:.Exodus 24:3,7

The Creator was saying in this verse that those then who evidence lack of interest for their Creator by refusing to keep His laws in effect back then.(not in effect today), would cause a curse upon their future generations. For a church group to insist these generational curses are in effect today is the same as saying 'we'll follow this Old Testament stuff as we don't believe in the saving grace, mercy and kindness Christ came to make known. It's just another doctrine of the dark side to kick Christ out of one's life.

Those ancient kings who lived evilly were often taken into captivity and/or had untimely deaths, as shown in the examples of ancient king Jehoahaz and his son Joash.

Time and time again the Creator would save them when they changed.

It's now the time of Christ since His death and resurrection and the Old Testament Mosaic Law now gone. Believing in these 'passed on curses', these judgments of God upon future generations of someone who is evil, is just being out of touch with Christ and attempting to resurrect the tenets of the Mosaic Law. The Mosaic Law itself was a curse. Be glad it's no longer effective. It had its purpose back then, but now something greater has superseded it:.Hebrews 9:11;

Those espousing Old Testament laws that are now abolished, is a trick the devil uses to pump a false alternate gospel into the minds of those who get a sense of power through control over others by using such as what they still believe to be a law. The curses passed on from generation to generation, is a 'salvation by works' philosophy apart from the faith of Emmanuel the Christ.

The Creator is.always.kind, merciful, forgiving. Translators back then believing that God is cruel.(is God cruel?).and harsh, unwittingly.flavored.ambiguous original meanings, such as here. But, God did instruct things of cruelty to be done in His name.(so, really, God is responsible for it, as He also is for everything).as recorded in the Old Testament writings.

It is amazing how busy and unrelenting the dark side is. They keep pumping things into minds about being busy with works to "save ourselves", getting those same minds off of knowing that we are already righteous, were called and saved before the universe was built.(2Timothy 1:9), were perfect and holy even then, as it all looked forward to Christ having given us His gift of righteousness.(Romans 5:17).and having made us righteous.(2Corinthians 5:21).in the Father's eyes and instead of that, getting our minds off of the incredible position that we are presently in with God.(Philippians 2:5,6).thanks to Christ having been made a curse for us:.Galatians 3:10,13; 4:5; Romans 8:1.

God in Christ has already given us the victory:.John 8:24; 1Corinthians 15:57. Generational curses were never relevant for those of a higher consciousness, only for those in old covenant times who were of such low consciousness that they were stupid enough to build an idol with their own hands and worship it: Exodus 20:5.

But some still want.(Galatians 1:6-8; 3:1-7; 2Peter 2:1).to revel in a law that was designed for the opposite of making one righteous by faith.(Galatians 3:10-12), thereby enabling a relationship with God. Such are they who feel necessary to keep trying to bring the Mosaic Law's parts back from its defunct state. Sadly, some still think that by learning to do this and do that, some curse will come off them. So they live with the thought of a curse on them.(what a burden and what bondage), instead of with thoughts of thankfulness that they have received the gift of righteousness and thereby are accepted by God. 

The truth makes us free and what we call Satan's tricking us through our egos, enslaves:.John 8:32; Galatians 2:4; 4:9; 5:1; 2Peter 2:19

In all these devilish tricks, living in a righteous state of and by the faith of Emmanuel the Christ is always left out and an alternate gospel predominates. 

I have heard it many times in many ways. One, continually bombarded by such crap as 'your works will get you in a right state with God', is bound to eventually absorb some of it. Look! It is only the blood of Emmanuel and His righteousness and your acceptance of that, that keeps you in a right state with God, that is, in the frequency of love. Your works have nothing to do with salvation. When you help and thus love others, these works are counted toward your reward. Your reward is not salvation. Salvation is your inheritance:.1Peter 1:4.

Salvation.(the gift of eternal life into the Family of the Great Infinite Intelligence).comes only through faith in Emmanuel the Christ:.John 10:28. It is a gift from God who loved us all so much that the Christ member of this family of spirit beings came to Earth as a human and died so we all could be adopted into that family:.Romans 6:23; 8:15,23; Galatians 3:13; 4:5; Ephesians 1:5

Your reward in this family of spirit beings of light is a position based on your works of love here and now, which shows your capability in the area of love and thereby your particular reward.

I'm telling you, if they preach anything apart from the basis of Emmanuel the Christ and what.He did, get out!.Acts 5:42; 1Corinthians 2:2. Just be sure you understand what Christ means.

-What if someone does  make a curse on you? How to regard it.
