There is a curse that is progressively embracing the whole world. This curse has a single root with six thousand years of history. Zechariah prophesied of the final day when this curse would cover the face of the Earth. The Spirit said, “This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth” (Zechariah 5:3b). The root is always sin and the fruit is brokenness, destroyed homes, debilitated bodies, and every kind of confusion. Our entire world is on the skids to hell and is gaining speed. The curse of sin is setting records for wrecking lives.
A curse is a stronghold that a spirit or spirits have erected in or against your life. Apostle Paul described this “stronghold” or curse in his letter to Corinth, “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 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” (II Corinthians 10:3-5). A curse can be the result of your disobedience or the breaking of God’s commandments. Someone angry with you or holding a vendetta against you can erect a curse against you if you have let down your guard of protection. Children or young people can suffer fro m a curse in the family if immorality, addictive drugs, filthy books, or unbridled television or internet is allowed in the home. Any activity of Satan has the potential of leaving a curse on those affected. If failing to tithe our finances brings a curse, just think what kind of a curse homosexuality or other immorality will leave.
Someone that has been abused sexually is very likely living with a curse. An abusive parent often causes the child victim to be bound with a stronghold. Divorce in a marriage most often leaves children bound and troubled with a curse. Anyone that has a strong relationship with someone that has a dark obsession of evil will very often be bound to that curse. When you understand that Satan’s curse is gripping this world in preparation for the “Great Tribulation,” you must wake up and prepare yourself.
But there is supernatural Hope. There is an absolute and perfect victory against every curse by the powers of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ, The Only Begotten Son Of God, came to destroy every work and action of Satan. Read this truth carefully as we see that God the Heavenly Father has given us perfect victory in His Son. “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. 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”(Hebrews 2:8-9).
It is sad that multitudes of church people are living every day with satanic curses and have no hope of victory. Probably 60% of all sickness is the work of a curse and would disappear immediately if that dear soul would pray through and rest it all in Christ. Fears, doubts, nervous disorders, anger, jealousy, and dark forebodings are mainly the troubled action of curses rooted in the heart. Jesus said, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
Living for an extended time with a curse will cause the body to fall apart. Satan loves to attack a Bible-believing person and destroy their victory. He will set a snare or a trap to create confusion or anger and leave you with a root of bitterness. He will burden you until prayer becomes a chore and is powerless. Apostle Paul warned us, “In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will” (II Timothy 2:25-26).
There are three Divine sources in the Christian walk as well as a host of angels to encamp about us. First, let’s refresh ourselves to these Divine sources. “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the Water, and the Blood: and these three agree in one” (I John 5:7-8). The Spirit (the Holy Spirit), the Blood (of Jesus Christ), and the Water (the Word of God) are Divine powers that unite on earth to be a total victory in every saint. Psychological ideas are raw humanism and they are helpless to deliver the goods — no more than a bandage!
We are dealing with the spirit of Antichrist that the Bible calls, “a curse that would cover the face of the whole earth.” Apostle Paul warned, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12). The curse in the world of politics, religion, and the elite of every major profession is beyond our reach to stop. That’s where the One World Order will rule, but the true church and the saints of God have an absolute source of victory.
Today, start living in this world of triumph. Refuse to allow curses or strongholds to control your world. The Bible is Supernatural Truth that will feed your soul with perfect instruction. The Blood of Jesus has broken and defeated every design that Satan has against you. The Devil has been whipped and is helpless when you live under the sacrifice of Christ’s Blood. The Holy Ghost will back up everything in the Word and every victory of the Blood. Live in these truths, pray earnestly until you pray through into His presence, and trust our Heavenly Father every step of the way.
