By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life. ~ Proverbs 22:4 KJV

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. ~ Psalms 1:1-3 KJV

1 Timothy 1 13 Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.

Hebrews 5 2 Who can have compassion on the ignorant, and on them that are out of the way; for that he himself also is compassed with infirmity.

Jas 1:20 For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. 21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before  a fall. Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than  to divide the spoil with the proud. ~ Proverbs 16:18-19 KJV

Lately I  have had people tell me that demons clearly  have been visiting and  bothering them  and they wondered why?

Now ironically some of these people WHO HAD NOW realized they were being cursed, and THAT a tormenting messenger of Satan had come to buffet them,  so they now  had visiting demons,  they had even failed to realize they were reaping what they themselves had sowed, as they had also cursed others.. Jesus said that our ‘hatred of others without a cause’ is like murder.

And they wondered what they can do.. Well for a start they can humbly admit, confess to God all of their past, present sins and ask for His forgiveness, cleansing, redemption, deliverance by Jesus Christ.

CURSES CAN BE  NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES, BUT THEY ARE ALSO THE BAD PRAYERS SENT AGAINST US,  ANSWERED BY THE DEVIL,  SENT BY BAD PEOPLE, EVEN BY BAD PASTORS, RELATIVES, SOMEONE ELSE SUCH AS BAD HINDUS AND THE MUSLIMS  NOW TOO.. BUT IN THE NAME OF JESUS YOU CAN NULLIFY THEM, RENDER THEM VOID, USELESS. ANY CURSE IS REMOVED AT CALVARY FOR ALL CHRISTIANS WHO WILL ACCEPT THE SUBSTITUTE PROVIDED BY GOD.  Thus if you are in a right relationship with God ‘NO WEAPON FORMED OR FASHIONED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER INCLUDING CURSES OR BAD WORDS THROWN AT US ,, All PERSONS who do not accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their substitute are EVEN under the curse of the law. BUT FOR CHRISTIANS Christ was made a curse for us on Calvary’s tree, but the curse on Satan remains, and the curse of the broken laws of God remain on all who are disobedience to it;  God Himself was the first one to pronounce curses – on the earth, on Eve’s fertility and upon the serpent. Curses are not just a primitive superstition; they are spiritual pronouncements recorded in Scripture, that profoundly affect the very structure of reality in some way.

These demonic attack can effect the person’s spirit, mind, and body. However curses are not playthings and are profoundly emotionally disturbing for those who experience them. They are not just angry words or swear words; they are acts of power in the spiritual realm.Yes the  personal oppression from curses is caused by the release of demons by others even against the targeted Christian. This  oppression may be the false  expression of hatred for all Christians.  The darkness within such a rather bad person will recognize the light of Christ within a Christian and they do even in jealousy oppose it falsely too.. Human beings tend to still be very  carnal and apart from Jesus Christ, his holy Spirit there tends to be still nothing good in them.

There are over 200 verses on curses in Scripture and were foundational to the Old Covenant (see Deuteronomy 28-30)  and the   list just touches on some of the main causes and their remedies. Basically a curse can only alight on an area that God has already judged as being worthy of a curse – even such as an unrepented sin, or bad acts such as stealing,  stinginess, drunkenness, lying, hatred, unforgiveness, incest , idolatry or murder. Most curses generally last only 3-4 generations though some have lasted since Creation. Repentance from sin, breaking ties with the occult and taking refuge in Christ who has become a curse for us are the main strategies we can use to break curses.

Now it is in MAINLY in the spiritual dimension that curses start to work  for  the bad prayers of  Curses release the demons to attack a person next even physically . I have had people admit to me they had cursed, targeted specially Christians in their cursings. The energy of curses can be and  is  negative and destructive. Sadly the bad  persons may even  take devilish delight in sending demon spirits to attack the Christians, others. Curses may be aimed at you by others because of: hatred, envy, greed, jealousy, the use of magic, spiritual conflict and the desire for revenge. These curses, demons are released against one another even  by another’s use of witchcraft, hateful words, slander, by one’s hateful attitude and even by the false negative and controlling ‘Christian’ prayer even by pastors too now or a spouse…  Curses may come upon you even  because of your own poor conduct ,  participation in the occult, prostitution, fornication, sexual immorality, adultery,   injustice, direct defiance of God,  disobedience to God especially in an important area, and involvement in secret societies with unacceptable  rituals and vows.  In some cases parents curse their children, particularly the first-born son, in order to attain POWER in a deal with Satan or his representatives. This is said to occur in Masonic rituals.

YES you can break this Oppression by recognizing your authority in Jesus Christ to do so. You resisting whenever the demon manifests; by knowing that God is in you and greater is HE that is in you than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4 says that we overcome ‘because he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world’. You go humbly into prayer and you take authority against any manifestation of this demon. Do this repeatedly until all of this oppression is gone. The good news is that breaking curses can be surprisingly easy for Christians because we dwell under the protection of the blood of Jesus Christ. Curses have greatest power where the person who has been cursed has committed some great act of wickedness such as involvement in the occult. The reverse is also true, curses have little or no power over a righteous person and Proverbs says that a curse without cause will not alight on the head of a righteous man.

Part of this is putting on the whole armor of God, which is designed to protect us from curses leveled against us in the course of spiritual warfare (Ephesians 6:10-18). When the curse is lifted then the human spirit that has been affected by the curse and been bowed down with pain, confusion and futility will be quickly healed. The person will recover and emotional normality should soon follow.

2 Corinthians 2
11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

Ever notice how often the devil and his followers claim they are really there to help you, as though you could not live without them/

Now  it is true that our own words of unbelief do still often contradict what God says he can do for us, thus we need to confess God’s word to us, and still rather not our own will, desires as only God’s revealed will, word for us can succeed..

Romans 7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

Clearly the devil wants to use the demons and others  to  impregnate our mind with their lies, falsehoods so he can make you mentally sick, and useless to God and to others.. resist, ignore this demon..

Now  the Bible  says  that we are to empty our mind and next solely to take the mind of Jesus Christ. We are thus to take every thought of ours into captivity and subject them all solely to the mind of Christ, the Holy Spirit, and that is what the real God, the Bible teaches, the demon do not want you to  DO  that of course…

2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Hebrews 2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; 4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?
5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
