We all battle different things in the spiritual realm. But many of us battle things that have been passed down through our family lines—generational curses. So then, how do we know if we are up against a generational curse in the spirit?

Join Rabbi Curt Landry as he walks you through a series of questions to help you identify if you are up against a generational curse.

  1. Get a pen and paper
  2. Go through these 10 questions with Rabbi Curt Landry
  3. Get the key to breaking free

God’s Word says He has given you a purpose and calling. He has equipped you with the Holy Spirit’s power to battle every spiritual battle. He gives you wisdom, discernment and vision.

Jesus came to reverse the curse. Start by identifying them and then give them to Jesus!

Identifying Generational Curses

  1. Do you question a call or you’re calling or your direction that once was discernible?

Yes or no?

When you first came to the Lord in the early years, you were focused on your first love for Him and your purpose and direction. Have you lost this focus? Just rate it 1 through 10.

  1. Am I lured into areas of previous bondage?

Yes or no? So, are you battling things again and again? Let’s say you may have had a struggle with some kind of addiction or something, and now you find yourself battling back into it. Yes or no? Rate it 1 through 10.

Often, when things from the past, things you’ve been delivered from, creep back in, it’s because you haven’t cut off the soul tie or generational curse completely. It’s trying to reconnect (to grow back).

  1. Am I tempted to quit personal assignments?

Yes or no? Then rate it 1 through 10. Are you at a place where you’re weary, and you want to quit?

  1. Do I battle mental, emotional or physical illness and fatigue?

Yes or no? Because emotional/physical fatigue (driven by hopelessness) is different than physical fatigue due to physical exertion. Let’s say you’re cutting wood. splitting logs, that’s a different level of fatigue.

  1. Do you feel guilty, shame, condemnation, loneliness, rejection or manifestation when emotional wounds are open?

So, how well are you responding when the enemy comes or situations come, and your buttons are pushed? Are you not responding? Do you have what I would call emotional intelligence, emotionally healed? You are healed or in the process of healing when buttons are pushed; though you don’t like it, you are not emotionally moved. Are you at that place? Yes or no? One through 10.

Remember Your Identity in Yeshua

So, here’s the key. You need to remember that God is giving you your identity in Yeshua, in Christ, in Jesus. That said, the enemy is always trying to lie to you and steal your identity. He wants you to think and obsesses about whatever you’ve been delivered from before you had the encounter with the Lord.

  • Remembering His Word that says He has given you a purpose and a calling.
  • Remember that the power within you equips you for every spiritual battle.
  • Remember that the Holy Spirit will give you wisdom, discernment and vision and will battle for you.

Ask for What You Need! Claim God’s Promises!

But you need to ask for what you need. That’s what we’re getting ready to do. You need to ask. The enemy wants you to doubt that you can’t be freed, and he wants you to feel trapped, hopeless and aimless without purpose.

So, the key is to say, “Lord, I want the benefits.” So, we’re going to claim those benefits right now.

So, let’s pray together.

“Father God, we come, and we lift up everyone reading these words this day. Lord, we have identified that we have symptoms of generational curses. That’s one of the first things. Lord, we admit we have symptoms of generational curses. None of us come from a perfect family, that’s for sure. Amen.”

This isn’t about being “good or bad.” We are simply rating these symptoms one through 10.

I’d say everybody at this stage of the game and these generations. We’re at level 10 of corruption with generational curses in our family. But we’re going to choose to collectively say today,

“Father God, in Yeshua’s name, I thank you, Lord, that Jesus came to reverse the curse in my life.”

Go ahead and just say that, “Jesus came to reverse the curse in my life, and because of that, I have the benefits of a peaceful mind. I have peace of mind.”

Go ahead and say, “I have peace of mind. Lord, I decree that I have the joy.”

You have to have it. You have to ask. I have not because I ask not.

“The joy of the Lord is my strength. I thank You, Lord, that I have spiritual strength because even as I listen and watch this podcast, I am feeding on the Word that shall not come back void. The Word became flesh and dwelt amongst us. Thank you, Lord, that prosperity and provision are mine. Even if I don’t have it today, I claim that I will have more than enough because I will be a tither. I will bring offerings to the Lord. Lord, Your Word says in Malachi 3 and 6, ‘I am the Lord. I do not change, and therefore, oh Jacob, you are not destroyed.’

“So, Lord, I decree and declare I am a tither, and I do bring offerings to the Lord, and because of that, You will provide, protect and give me favor. You’ll rebuke the devourer for my sake, according to Your covenant promise in Malachi 3. Thank you, Lord, that I cut all soul ties with generational curses of financial attack and physical attack in my family line. I cancel and declare all relationship issues within my family of dysfunction are canceled. The soul tie is cut now. Lord, I thank You that all abuse and addiction to drugs, alcohol, sex, anger, violence and pride are cut off my family line in Yeshua’s name. All spirits of divorce set in my family line, I cut that off. I cancel it in the Courts of Heaven this day, in Yeshua’s name. All business bankruptcies, breakups, dysfunctions, robbing, cheating and stealing that come within my family line are canceled.

“I thank You, Lord, that we are a family, and in our family line, we will make our yes be yes, and our no’s be no. Lord, all church issues of being, let’s say, a church hopper or always having to constantly not be able to stay in fellowship is canceled, in Yeshua’s name. Lord, I just thank You, for we identify this, and we pray Your Word, and we say, Lord God, You are the Lord of heaven and earth. You are the Alpha and the Omega. You are the great ‘I Am.’ You’re the heavenly Father. The blood of Yeshua expunges my sin this day so that I can connect with You, my heavenly Father. You are complete and cannot lie to me. Thank you, Lord. You are faithful and trustworthy. Your Spirit strengthens and empowers me this day. Thank you, Lord. I have identified I have generational curses, and now, I have canceled them by the blood of Jesus. They are expunged, I silence their words in my mind and my heart, and I will walk forward in your righteousness. In Yeshua’s name, amen.”

God bless you. {eoa}
