Very often people are not able to understand why sad history is repeated in their family from generation to generation. I have a cousin whose father died when she was still very young and when her family needed him most. When she got married, her husband died on the day before her daughter was to go for study to carve out a career as an air hostess. It stopped her from going for that study. Since then she never had the opportunity to pursue her study and fulfill her dream to become an air hostess. She is now a teacher in a small primary school in a village! It is difficult to describe how sad she is.

Some families are having the history of poverty that is repeated from generation to generation. Just when some really great opportunity to make headway in life comes before the members of such family, something happens that takes away that opportunity from them. They just cannot find out why this happens in their life and the life of their family. In the discussion that follows, we shall briefly find explanation for such misfortunes.

To begin with, very often this happens because there is some sin in the family for which a person or people involved in it have not repented and sought forgiveness from God. Of course, Jesus has atoned for the sins of the mankind by shedding His blood on the cross. The blood of Jesus cleanses us from our sins – both the sins that we have committed in past and the sins that we shall commit in future. However, every time we commit sin, we need to remember the price that Jesus had to pay on the cross because of our sins. If we remember that, we are bound to hate our sins and our sinfulness. It is this attitude toward sin, and the help from the Holy Spirit of God, that will eventually lead us to live a pure life.

Christ’s suffering, therefore, should inevitably lead us to repent for our sins and try not to commit them again. The more we grow in awareness of the connection of our sins to Christ’s suffering, the more we become uncompromising in our attitude toward sin. Ultimately, with the help of the Holy Spirit we do stop committing sin!

Unfortunately, there are people who are so egoistic that when they commit sin, instead of their sin making them humble, they become obstinate and disown the fact that they have done anything bad. Because of their obstinacy, their sinful self gains in strength to the extent that they become quite insensitive to the sufferings of Christ.

The next stage of their spiritual degradation makes them disregard the blood of Jesus. Bible calls it treading upon the Son of God (Jesus Christ) and treating as unholy the blood of Jesus that sanctifies us from our sins. People who treat Christ in this way are sure to face God’s judgment both in this life and the life that awaits them after death.

When people face God’s judgment on their sins in this life, it finds expression through sustained chain of misfortunes such as described above. The reason behind continuation of the effects of sin from generation to generation is found in the expression of the same sinful nature working itself out from generation to generation.

While it is difficult for the members belonging to the succeeding generations of such a family to find out anything about the sin with which the curse began to plague the family, there is surely a way to find it out. It so happens that the sinful nature, which led a person to bring down curse on his family through his sin, is inherited by his descendants. This sinful nature finds echo in his descendants…in the generations that follow.

Therefore, it becomes necessary for someone from that family to be insightfully aware of being victim of such a sinful nature. It helps that person to conscientiously seek forgiveness for not only the expression of this sinful nature in him but also in the life of other members of his family. That person must earnestly and diligently repent and seek forgiveness for the sinful nature he inherits and passes on to the next generation. It is absolutely necessary.

Because sin brings curse, it is necessary to remove the sin in order to have the curse removed. It is absolutely necessary to have the curse removed through Jesus; because there is no other way in which we can be free from it. Being cursed is an extremely serious situation. It separates us from the blessings that God wants to give us.

All you have to do is to accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, and do this little prayer:

O God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, O Savior of Israel,
Today I accept you as my God. And as I come into Your presence, I accept that I am a sinner. Please forgive me my sins and remove my sinful nature from me. Please remove the curse that this sinful nature has brought upon me and my family.

O Jesus my Lord, I accept that You have sacrificed Yourself on the cross for my sins, and have taken away my curse. You died, were buried in the grave, and rose from death on the third day – all for me and such as I.

O my Lord, I believe that You are sitting at the right hand of God the Father as my Advocate. Please plead my cause against Satan and free me from my sin and curse before God the Father. Redeem me with Your blood and justify me with Your righteousness.

Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can continue in His righteousness till I finish the journey of my life in this world and enter into Heaven to enjoy all the happiness that You have reserved for me.

I give all glory and honor to You, o God, to You, o Jesus, and to You, o Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ mighty and holy name I pray, Amen.

Dear Friends, this short prayer can change your life. Try it NOW.
