God is to grace as satan is to sin. Sin leads to a curse. Everything God does, satan does the counterfeit.
The concept of generational curse in a family under the new birth is a deception from the devil.
A generational curse is defined as a curse from father to son due to the sin of the father.
The following scriptures below shows how the son will not bear the sins of the father because the soul(singular) that sins shall die.
6 And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, The Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,
7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
The word of the Lord came unto me again, saying,
2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge?
3 As I live, saith the Lord God, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel.
4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
29 In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children’s teeth are set on edge.
30 But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.
31 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord:
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Whatever you focus on become real and you make room for. If you believe a lie, you are bound according to John 8:32.
What people refer to as generational curse is a spirit operating in families and limiting their potentials.
In Judges 6, the angel of the Lord told Gideon to bring down the alter of baal and destroy the groves near it. The worship of baal was antichrist and brought the wrath of God upon the people.
Instead of the children taking responsibility for their own sins, they blamed their fathers and God was tied with that. Adam blamed Eve and God by saying the wife you gave me.
Explain the following scriptures in context of the above:
John 3:16 (…… that whosoever(singular, not tied to the father) believeth…..)
