may be some defects/diseases that you got from your parents. When going to the
doctor, the first thing he/she asks if there are any diseases in your family tree.
Why? Because they know it can be passed on to you. There is a way to stop the
disease or characteristic from passing on to you and to your children.
9:2: "And the Israelites separated themselves from all foreigners and stood and
confessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers".
20:5: "Ö..visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the 3rd
and 4th generation of those who hate Me."
25:18 Ė "Look upon my affliction and my pain and forgive all my sins."
Diseases and Characteristics
time to STOP that curse or disease. As discussed earlier, a curse is a disease.
We can stop the disease now, and stop it from going on to our children by confessing
the sins of our fathers. A disease doesnít come unless there is a cause (Proverbs
26:2). And we discovered that disease is a curse and curses come from
sins. It may not be YOUR sin, but could be a sin from three generations before
you falling on you and your children.
only can physical disease be passed down, but emotional as well. Do you have any
mental problems in your family? Has anyone ever committed suicide or ended up
in a mental ward? What about anger? Molestation? Alcoholism? Gluttony? Do you
have fear? All these things CAN be passed on. Do you believe that lying can be
hereditary? Letís take a look at a character in the Bible and see if this isnít
look at our founding father, Abraham. He was a liar. He lied to a king about his
wife being his sister. He did it twice! Did you know he had a son who told the
same lie to the same king 40 years later about his wife? This same son had sons
and they were all liars. They lied to their father by telling him Joseph was eaten
by animals, yet what they really did was sold him into slavery. Here are 3 generational
liars! Yes, emotions can be inherited.
your family inherited diseases. The list should include mental and emotional characteristics
and illnesses as well. If you do not manifest them now, you need to still stop
the curse from one-day manifesting or going to the next generation. (The inherited
characteristics can be anger, prejudice, hate, lust, alcoholism, control, etc.)
Indicate which family member you believe it came through by indicating a W - wife,
H - husband, F - Father, M- Mother, G - Grandmother, or GF - Grandfather after
the disease or characteristc. (Donít forget fear and anxiety.)
take your list to God and prayer this prayer. (This is not a formula; it is a
sample prayer. You can pray your own.)
I bring this list of diseases and characteristics of my ancestors to your throne.
I believe that I have the power through the Holy Spirit to break the curse of
these diseases so that they will not come upon me nor my children, nor my childrenís
children as indicated in Nehemiah. So I confess the sins of my fathers and ask
for forgiveness of those sins. (Name the sins one-by-one). And I now break the
curse of (NAME THE DISEASES AND CHARACTERISTICS ONE BY ONE). I trust you to cleanse
me and my family from these diseases now and forever. I stand in faith believing
you have done what I have asked. I will not fear disease any longer. Thank you
Lord, in Jesus Name. Amen."
