Curses: where angels fear to tread and touch!

I love to travel! The only continent I have not been to yet is Australia. I have a huge world map and a key ring placed on each country I have been to.

However, we can get quite a few curses from our travels I have noticed, especially in countries of eastern culture influence. Why? We can tread on unholy ground and what is the one thing we always do? Buy a souvenir and bring it home. There it sits on your shelf or mantel piece looking all pretty for the world to see where you’ve been. But some of these souvenirs harbour their own curses and bring destruction onto you or your home, or both.
The reason for this is that many souvenirs, and areas, are blessed by these eastern religions, which gives demons, and the demon gods these cultures worship, the legal ground to inhabit the souvenir and area. Also, some are dedicated to the services of Satan.
When I went to Taiwan for a month with my Taiwanese friend, he told me quite proudly that they don’t fear anything because the “gods of Taiwan” have been ‘brought down’ to protect Taiwan’s borders and itself as a country. I thought, ‘oh boy!’ Those are demonic beings that have legal ground to oppress anyone coming into the country!

Looking at scripture, we can see how God forbade touching of unclean things. We are not to associate with darkness, and bringing unclean things into our homes is doing just that! The best example lies in the book of Joshua. When the walls of Jericho came down, God warned them to not take anything from Jericho for themselves.

But the children of Israel committed a trespass regarding the accursed things, for Achan the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed things; so the anger of the Lord burned against the children of Israel.” Joshua 7:1

Then, they went up to Ai and 36 men were killed! They were distraught and Joshua cried out to God not understanding what had gone wrong. Sounds like us? “God, why did you let this happen to me? I don’t understand what’s going on!” God explained this very well to Joshua and said,

So the Lord said to Joshua: “Get up! Why do you lie thus on your face? Israel has sinned, and they have also transgressed My covenant which I commanded them. For they have even taken some of the accursed things, and have both stolen and deceived; and they have also put it among their own stuff. Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they have become doomed to destruction. Neither will I be with you anymore, unless you destroy the accursed from among you. Get up, sanctify the people, and say, ‘Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow, because thus says the Lord God of Israel: “There is an accursed thing in your midst, O Israel; you cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the accursed thing from among you.” Joshua 7:10-13

God specifically commanded them to not take anything from Jericho because it was cursed and sinful, and they did not listen.

God makes it clear to keep ourselves and homes clean, sanctified and holy:

And he spoke to the congregation, saying, “Depart now from the tents of these wicked men! Touch nothing of theirs, lest you be consumed in all their sins.” Numbers 16:26

“Come out from among them and be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you.” 2 Cor 6:17

In the Book of Acts, those who accepted Jesus Christ did not hesitate to rid of their occultist practices and objects!

And many who had believed came confessing and telling their deeds. Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totalled fifty thousand pieces of silver.So the word of the Lord grew mightily and prevailed.Acts 19:18-20

Some of the most obvious objects we should not have in our homes are statues of demon gods such as Buddha or Egyptian Pharaohs, eastern gods and some African art – some are clearly representations of demon gods and we should not have any of them in our homes or on our possession. I see often how tourists got nuts for the African art sold here. Some are very pretty, but a lot of them are carvings of their demon gods and some are so blatantly obvious they’re demonic they make your hair stand up. We are destroyed for lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). Also, almost anything from Asian countries is risky – in my travels there I learnt how many objects are cursed, and most some for the destruction against Christians!
The easiest way to tell is to learn about the culture and history you are visiting. It is my prayer that the thought “Well, if I don’t believe it, it won’t happen to me!” will be eradicated from the hearts and minds of every Christian out there. I hear that so often. There is no way Satan thinks, “Oh well, let me give him a break – he doesn’t believe it, so I will leave him be.” Not a chance.

My next few posts will be focused on the types of curses you can get specifically on objects you bring into your home and the unholy ground we walk on – a lot of it will be on different countries, mostly the ones I have traveled to and learnt from.

Curses – legal ground and how to break them

Curses seem to be more covert in other parts of the world. I could be wrong but they seem to be more of a secret in their plan and execution. Yet, here in Africa, Satan’s agents are rather open about it like it’s nothing. It is part of their daily conversation as if talking about the sky being blue. It’s almost as if a few witches sit around drinking tea, while one of them pipe up, “So anyway, I cursed Anne today.” Being so open about it does have its advantages though, because this way we are quicker to fight back.

My mother received a text message on Saturday from an unknown person who told her he has gone to a Sangoma (Zulu word for witchdoctor) to curse and control her family. See- open! It just so happens that everything has been going wrong in my dad’s business recently – employees are making fatal mistakes and jobs are not getting done like they should. My dad commented that it feels as if “someone is trying to torment him.” Ever felt like that? That’s the symptom of a curse. Torment, confusion about what is happening and destruction. My mom suspects it is one of the new employees who have received two written warnings for consistent late coming. That’s Africa for you.
The purpose of any curse is to destroy, harm or bring ruin and even death to a person. Curses are not only sent to Christians, but to the unsaved too.
A curse is the purpose, the actual thing someone wants done to a person, while the demon is the sending mechanism.
Now not everything that goes wrong is a curse. We live in a fallen world, and trials and temptations will come to purify, grow and strengthen us. But trials and temptations are not meant to stay forever – curses do, until they’re broken. Also, when things go beyond the realm of coincidences, you should seek the Lord’s guidance on whether it is a curse, or just life.

You can receive curses from two reasons.
1. you have given Satan the legal ground to attack and curse you, through sin.
2. you are cursed through no fault or sin of your own. So, you have not given him legal ground to attack, but he does, usually by his agents.

I will go into more detail of what constitutes legal ground with each post. Basically it is sin. God is a very merciful God, yet just. He is just with us, but He is also just with Satan’s kingdom. It is in no way giving glory to Satan, but rules are rules, and God plays by them, and Heaven is run very much on a legal system. Christians fall into the trap very easily of assuming that we are protected no matter what we do. It is not so, and Satan feeds on that lie! We are responsible for our actions, and we cannot just walk around doing whatever we please.

Let me highlight an example, before going into the how to’s of breaking a curse.

I know this woman who has three spirit guides. I went to school with her and have known her since I was 11. I’m sure I will post more about her in the future – we are not friends but her spirit guides detest me for speaking to her about Jesus and have attacked me more than once! She told us this story and is rather proud of it, mind you. Many years ago she had a fight with her boyfriend. She became irate and said to him as he was leaving her house that she was going to put a curse on him to have a major car accident. She did. Ten minutes down the road, he had a major car accident. That is no coincidence – she literally performed a curse and the demons associated with the curse brought it to pass.
Don’t assume that there always has to be an intricate incantation performed with candles and other gross looking satanic paraphernalia in order for a curse to work. That does take place, but curses can come out of words!

If you were the person getting into that car, this is how you would have broken the curse after she spoke those words over you:

“I break that curse placed on me in the name of Jesus Christ! I command all demons associated with that curse to leave me and my car at once in Jesus’ name!”
That’s it. Jesus was not kidding when He said His yoke is light. It really is! There is no ceremony to perform or fancy words to say– it really is as simple as that! Praise God!

Lets’ say you actually gave Satan the legal ground (you sinned) to attack or curse you. This is how you would break it:

“Father, I confess that ______ as sin and repent of it. Forgive me for _____. I now break that curse placed on me in the name of Jesus Christ! I command all demons associated with that curse to leave me at once in Jesus’ name!”

You must take as faith that the curse is broken – anything more you try to do than that will be of your own efforts.You cannot break it yourself – it must be done in Jesus’ name. Jesus said He gave us his authority in Luke 10:19. He’s saying “Here – it’s My authority to trample over evil. Take it and use it!”

But what if you cannot remember what you did that possibly brought on the curse? Maybe it was so long ago? Ask God! He will tell you! He’s not sitting on his throne saying, “Haha! Take a guess!” He is a God that liberates and sets His people free! He wants those chains off of His people! The Holy Spirit once woke me up at 3am to make me write down a long lost sin I had forgotten about so that I did not forget about it in the morning when I woke up. Heaven loves 3am I’ve noticed.

As I write more posts about different types of curses, you can keep in remembrance how to break them, should you identify somewhere that you have a curse placed on you.
I pray that the God of comfort leads you into all truth these next few weeks.
