Do you believe as a Christian you can be cursed? I grew up in Louisiana where voodoo and mysticism were rampant. If you ran into a string of bad luck, you would immediately wonder if someone had put a curse on you.
In the African American community, there was a thought we were descendants of Ham, Noah’s son who exposed his father’s nakedness, and therefore perpetually cursed.
In the Christian community, I was taught there were generational curses. The thought was if your ancestors did something wrong, you reaped the effect.
All of these camps of thought magnify sin and evil and minimizes the atoning work of the cross.
Brothers and sisters, YOU ARE UNCURSABLE! Jesus became a curse for you to redeem you from the curse. (Galatians 3:13).
While in Mexico, we faced spiritual warfare. Lily (my interpreter and fellow prayer warrior) and I faced an attack on our bodies almost daily. We both had pain on our lower left side. She had a throat ache and began to loose her voice. Every morning before I began to teach, I would have excruciating back pain. But we refused to believe we were cursed. We refused to stop what we were doing and focus us the enemy.
When Lily’s throat began to hurt, I grabbed her by the neck (she swears I was trying to choke her) and commanded it to go. And it did. Every morning, before the students came, my back would hurt but as I stood and taught, the pain would go away. The enemy was trying to prevent the expanding of the kingdom. He was trying to stop the movement of the gospel by ‘cursing’ our bodies.
Balak tried to stop the children of Israel by hiring Balaam to curse them. But God said, my people are blessed and cannot be cursed. Brothers and sisters, you are blessed and nothing can stop you from expanding the kingdom of God without your consent. If you believe you are cursed, you will act like you are cursed. If you believe you are uncursable, you will confidently take authority over the opposition and declare blessings, freedom, healing over your life.
Those who are in Christ are blessed and uncursable.
“’Behold, there is a people who came out of Egypt and they cover the surface of the land; now come, curse them for me; perhaps I may be able to fight against them and drive them out.'” God said to Balaam, “Do not go with them; you shall not curse the people, for they are blessed.””
