Breaking Generational Curses — 132 Comments

  1. Dear Still Man:

    Well said and very thorough! I am amazed to find another Christian telling it like it really is in the eyes of God. The word of God tells us “Ye that love the Lord, hate evil”. King David declared that “I hate every evil way”. Witchcraft is a work of the flesh according to the epistle of Paul, and God has only one thing to say about the flesh “crucify it and the lusts thereof”.

    My mother raised us with the knowledge of the generational curses in our family, as her mother, grandmother and husband were all involved in witchcraft in a major way (not through ignorance). She said she found herself praying one day, some years after coming to Christ Jesus, “Thank you Lord for delivering me from the gernerational curse.” This shocked her she stated, because until then, she had not heard of generational curses. The Holy Ghost lead her to pray that prayer which set her to seeking God about generational curses.

    She also taught us about the works of Satan through cards, gambling, astrology and all the other things that you mentioned, so that our ways will be pleasing to the Lord. She preached to us about the blessings and the cursings of the Lord. She taught us that before we bring in the newspaper that was delivered to our home, to remove the horoscope section, for magazines as well. The Lord instructed her to tell her daughters not to read the Harleqin Romances that were so popular, and she kept us out of school during Halloween celebrations. She did all that the Lord required of her to train up her children in the way that they should go (the ways of the Lord), and she compromised for no one under her roof or in her family. This made us outcasts amongst our own kin, neighbors and even church folks, but it made us wise and strong in the Lord.

    I also had read John Todd’s testimony, and the Lord too told me to get rid of a whole bunch of stuff that I thought was “okay”. Right now, we are surrounded where we live by neighbors who are sold out to Satan; their own offspring bragged that they had us surrounded one day to our face. However, the Lord has us and them surrounded just as He had the 400 prophets of Baal surrounded who thought that they had Elijah and his servant surrounded.

    Thanks for standing up in the Lord and preaching what is holiness unto God, for many are being deceived by Satan. The book of Revelations states Satan will be deceiving the world through great sorceries, and this we see very well; even sorcery via technology, and I’ll explain the latter.

    One morning I awoke very early, but didn’t get up; I just prayed. I had an excruciating headache, so I took something for it and came back to bed to rest. I turned off the answering machine and telephone, but I left on the television to hear the news. The sound was bugging me, so I muted the television, but left it on. I fell asleep, but not long after, I was awakened by someone calling my full name (using a mean and bitter tone); the voice was coming from the television, but I thought that was ridiculous.

    I thought that this couldn’t possibly be, because I knew it was muted, but in my fogginess I just turned over and started drifting off again. I then heard that evil voice again calling my name, but only this time it started to make evil suggestions to me like “If you leave me alone, I give you what you want; anything.” The Holy Ghost quickened me to wake up, and He prompted me to pray.

    I popped up (that voice was so disturbing to my spirit, and I heard it coming from the direction of the television which I never unmuted. I checked the anwsering machine just to be sure that I had turned it and the phone off, and I had. I knew I heard the sound coming from the television, so I looked over at it, and the volume had come up while I was looking at it, and I did not touch the remote.

    I told Satan under no terms will I ever agree to leave him alone, that I would do whatsoever God told me to do I’d do (Satan didn’t want me warning others of his works or praying for other family memebers’ deliverance. God was also showing me through the writings of some of the people you mentioned like Alice Bailey, Aliester Crowley and others what Satan was really up to, and he didn’t want me informed but feeling too scared and powerless to reveal the works of darkness and the power of God). I knew by Satan’s attempts that real damage was being done through ferverent effectual prayer of this child of God; Satan was tempting me, like he tempted Jesus in the wilderness as Jesus said he would. That made me all the more determined to fight him using the power of Jesus name. I forbade him to speak to me in any manner and rejected his every offer; and I gave God thanks and praise for keeping watch over me.

    Still I didn’t know how this could be possible (that the television was involved), and I asked God what in the world is going on? I prayed off and on until afternoon. I wanted to call my mother who I know is a anointed to pray, but I didn’t want her to think I was losing my marbles either. How could I explain this to anyone. That voice was not in my head, heart or imagination in anyway: I was not hallucinating from an aspirin dosage. It was outside of me coming from the television; the volume was being controlled through technology outside of my home.

    Later on that day, God lead me to a website which revealed that there is technology that is being used against people: the Bible speaks of evil inventions and wicked devices, and it is very real. God does not lie. I had no idea that anything like that existed, could be done and was regularly being done to mesmerize people. The devil meant it for evil, but God for my good. God allowed this to happen to show me where Satan’s seat is, and how to watch and pray. The devil was not able to accomplish his plan, as the Holy Ghost lifted up a standard against him even in my sleepy state. When we are under the blood and walking in all pleasing to God, God will not allow the enemy to destroy us. He will come to our defense, and He gives His angels charge over us to keep us in all our way, even as we slumber God never does.

    I finally told my mother, once I had an answer from the Lord, and she reminded me that a witch had once told her about the use of the television to spy on the public. For those who are wondering what this technology is, it is extreme low frequency electromagnectic wave manipulation harnessed as weaponry against the minds of the people. Satan has showed humanity how to do this, though it is always billed as a necessary evil for the good of humanity by the scientists, politicians and industries that produce and support such things. It is billed as ‘peace and safety’, but the word of God tells us that the world’s offers and claims of peace and safety are really an evil net.

    God’s peace is real and everlasting; the Father said he will keep us in perfect peace when our mind is stayed upon Him.

    Again, thank you brother for preaching the truth: it ain’t easy always, but it is alwasy worth it.

    • Dear Brother Davis:

      Your very welcome, and thank you for that blessed endorsement! I too am amazed to hear a Christian who loves the Lord and His righteousness as much as I do. It is really a pleasure hearing someone taking a stand for Jesus Christ, and being zealous for His righteousness.

      God really laid it on my heart one day to talk about generational curses because He delivered my children and me from a curse and stopped it from spreading to future generations like a malevolent plague.

      My parents weren’t involved in outright witchcraft to my knowledge, but I’ll never forget that one day I and my nosey siblings discovered a ouija board in my mother’s closet. Now thank God that I didn’t play it, because I had read a story about a woman whom a ouija board had foretold would die on a particular day. When the day came, the lady’s car had gotten stuck on a railroad track when a train was coming. The train managed to stop well before striking the vehicle, but the lady died of a heart attack. She obviously thought the prophecy would be fulfilled.

      God showed me that just having that ouija board in the house brought a curse upon my family, and I have seen that curse manifest in my entire family. My children were manifesting signs of demonic influence that were very troubling. I didn’t go into it to protect them, but believe me: I have seen the power of God to remove ANY demonic manifestation in one’s life.

      You are so blessed to have a Godly mother. Mine was utterly lost and I am truly grateful that Jesus chose to reveal Himself to me out of all my family. Now you see the reason why I have to tell it like it is: God has just done too much for me to keep it a secret. He didn’t accomplish all He did in me for me to keep it under a bushel.

      God has chosen to reveal a lot to me through my children. One day, for instance, I was sitting down on the couch reading “The New World Order” by A. Ralph Epperson, the cover of which features what has become known as the symbol of the Illuminati, the same symbol found on the obverse side of the one dollar bill. My kids were playing on the floor in front of me, when suddenly my youngest daughter yells out, “Papa, our teacher showed us that symbol just the other day.” As it turned out, one of her teachers had given them a lecture on that symbol using a replica cast in gold. The incredible thing was that this was her religion teacher! I was amazed. It’s one thing to read about something and something else totally to find out that it’s true.

      That was when I realized that it was time to explain to my children the battle of the ages between light and dark and the symbology of the ancient religion of Mystery Babylon. I realized that the enemy is indoctrinating our children to accept these satanic teachings and symbology so that when Antichrist comes to power, he will have a captive audience. Remember, the Bible says that The Antichrist “will cause craft (witchcraft) to prosper in his hand.” It will be government sponsored.

      To continue, the Lord continued to reveal to me how the enemy has been destroying us through witchcraft. The story I tell about the family of witches living next door to me in Germany is very true. As a matter of fact, I am very sure that the entire neighborhood was full of witches and they were all casting against my family. Before long, I was one of the most hated men in Munich. I am also very sure that the Roman Catholic authorities knew about me here in St. Louis long before I came back, as the Catholic Church is the greatest spy agency on the planet. I have had too much proof of this to be a skeptic.

      I too am literally surrounded by the children of disobedience, only none has come up to me and bragged about it. That’s because they prefer to just show me, and they expend considerable energy doing that. God is good though, because when my children were here with me, they had designs on them, and it took me longer than it should have to figure that out. Like you, I found out that even their children play an active part, as well as teachers and school administrators.

      Your story about the television set is absolutely incredible, but I totally believe it. The Lord also led me to a site which explained EMR technology, and William Cooper talked about it in his five-part mind control series. They use those weapons on me on a daily basis. My legs are always vibrating and once my body vibrated so badly, that my teeth were chattering. This stuff is real. I prayed once for the Lord to take it off me, but to be honest, my prayer was not with conviction, because something in me believes He wants to show the enemy that He is stronger than they. Some of my best expository writing has been when I haven’t been able to sleep or while I’m being energized with their weapons.

      It also has also taught me to rely on Him more, because there was a time when I couldn’t sleep without earplugs on. But one night I told Him I was going to rely 100% on Him and for Him to help my unbelief. That very night I slept like a baby, and I haven’t slept with earplugs since. My neighbors still make a considerable amount of noise, but it doesn’t bother me like before, and when it does wake me up, often I manage to go back to sleep. God is good!

      I took your advice on praise and worship when they keep me from sleeping. Last night for instance, every time I nodded off, my arm, hand or leg would jerk. Three and a half hours had passed and I still hadn’t gone to sleep. So, I just got up and started thanking and praising God for what He has done for me and for finding me worthy to suffer on His behalf. I also took that opportunity to preach salvation because I know that my neighbors monitor my entire house visually and aurally 24 hours a day. I even asked God to save at least one of them for His name’s sake. Afterward, I went to bed and slept about four hours. When this happened before, I just rebuked my neighbors, but because of your witness, I now praise the Lord at those times. It really helps my soul. I thank you for this.

      By the way, I had a friend tell me in 2001 that she was being mind controlled and that some of her programming was being accomplished via the television. She said that a program that would seem totally normal to me would contain a word or message that was meant specifically for her. She was a private nurse and told me that some of the people she cared for were extremely wealthy. She looked nine months pregnant at the time, but she said it was just a tumor. It was only later that I thought this was strange. At the time, I was oblivious to what was going on in the world, so I thought she was losing it. Since I returned to America three years ago, I haven’t seen her. I think she was reaching out to me, but in my ignorance, I didn’t catch it. This is somewhat different from what you related, as the voice spoke directly to you, but the principle is the same.

      The Bible foretold in Romans 1:30 that those who knew God but rejected Him would become “inventors of evil things.” This is one manifestation of its fulfillment.

      As for using television to spy on people, that is indeed a reality. In 2003 a cable guy told me that he attended a briefing that blew his mind. While he wouldn’t go into specifics, he was careful to tell me that he no longer has a television in his bedroom. The technology watchgroup WhiteDot some years ago did a special on surveillance in which they revealed that the set-top boxes such as the TiVo have a camera and software installed which monitors the viewer “and his environment.” The manufacturer explained that it was intended to gear advertising to the viewers likes and interests, but it is plain to see the potential for abuse.

      I personally do not watch television. But I don’t want to be totally ignorant of what is going on in the world, so every now and then I will turn on “Daytime in NoTime” on Yahoo, and get a feel for what people are watching. Every now and then I’ll get nostalgic and watch an old television series or movie on YouTube, but even then, my discernment is so heightened “from use,” that I’ll spend most of the time noticing all the antichrist propaganda.

      A few months ago a person pretending to be a friend, called me to tell me that someone had left a perfectly functioning television and microwave in the alley for the trash collector. I picked them up and currently use the microwave, but the television sits in the basement as yet unused. I only wanted it to view old videotapes of Larry King and some German documentaries I have. The subversion of America’s morals could not have been accomplished without television, which is why I don’t watch it. Now I’m not a Lubbavitch or anything, I don’t swear off on television completely, but like everything else it must be in moderation and one has to remember to guard his heart with all diligence.

      We are truly in the last days of the Last Days, dear brother. You would not be going through this unless you were hurting Satan’s plans. May God bless, protect, and keep you and your family as we fight the good fight. Thanks for letting me know that I am not alone; and neither are you.

  2. Dear Still Man:

    One major correction, I am not your brother but sister in Christ Jesus. 🙂 I understand what you are saying about not watching television. I go sperts without watching it too, as it is a great time stealer as well as a great corrupter, and I know we must give account to God for everything that we do. When I do watch, I too am watching with a discerning eye of the Holy Spirit, and if He impresses upon me to turn the channel or to turn it off I do without hesitation. Lately, I’ve been finding myself saying I hate television: it’s just foolishness and wickedness mostly: I don’t want to set any wicked thing before my eye, and I lay aside anything that will so easily beset me.

    I sent your site to my mother and my sisters, and they too were rejoicing in the Lord for you. They said that they will be praying for you, night and day. I told my brothers about your work too: we can identify with what you are experiencing. It is the Lord: I know it. We are witnesses of His keeping power and we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    You are right about why we all must declare the goodness of the Lord: the word is too good and powerful to keep it to ourselves. Jeremiah said it was like fire shut up in his bones. The woman at the well ran and told everyone ‘come and see a man, from Galilee, that has told me all that I ever done.’

    I am still grateful for your sacrifice, because many are as the nine lepers among ten that were healed and never came back to say thank you. When we share what God has done in our lives and declare His righteousness, that is an offering of thanksgiving in a way to God and a gift to humanity. It lifts others up, shines a light to many that sit in darkness and it confirms a word by two or three witnesses to another. Your boldness in stating the truth has confirmed things for me and my family.

    You are so right about Catholicism. I know well of which you speak not only from studying but more so from family that is involved high up: I know what wickedness is wrought through that Harlot who rides the Beast and which causes all the world to drink from her cup of abominations. I know that this kin reports to them regularly, so I cannot walk with them, because we do not agree “what has light to do with darkness? What concord hath Christ with Belial?”

    Jesus said that his mother, sister and brothers are those that hear and keep (do) his commandments; we are not to bow down to the image of Baal or his consort (goddess worship/idolatry). Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego didn’t bow down at the playing of the music to the image of Nebuchadnezzar and the latter three were thrown into the fiery furnace for resisting this evil. However, the Lord God was in there with them through it all, and their enenmies were consumed by the fire instead. We are going through the fiery trials but the heat and smoke thereof shall not kindle upon us according to Isaiah’s book. God is going to bruise our advesary the devil under our feet shortly.

    I also know the power of God to deliver those who have drunk from Mystery Babylon’s cup, for I have witnessed Catholic priests and nuns birthed into God’s kingdom (born again): anyone who desires to be set free can be free indeed from the powers of darkness. That’s the whole purpose of Jesus’ advent, to seek and to save that which is lost. Jesus said whosoever will, let them come: it’s “through the desire (of the heart) that we seek and intermettle with all wisdom”: God is all wisdom, and no power from hell can keep back the power of God to deliver all who call upon Him with their whole heart.

    I am very glad that I came upon this site: I thought my computer was broken and had not been on for a while until my brother showed me what to do. I was up and running and some how ended up here. I’m glorying in God. I guess I am trying to say, though rather clumsily, thank the Lord for you, and thank you for letting Jesus be Jesus in you. It comes at a great cost but it is not to be compared to the reward that we will receive in the end. Jesus is Lord and He reigns supreme: Praise God in the highest!

    The Lord bless and keep you in Jesus name.

    • Dear Sister:

      My spirit told me you were my sister, but you’ve a bold witness—such as I have never personally experienced from a sister in Christ. I therefore addressed you as my brother. I am frankly extremely gratified and blessed in my spirit to know that you are my sister in the Lord. Women of old were bold for the Lord and jealous for the honor to witness of his goodness and mercy. They knew that the ability to care for their families was not completely intrinsic: God was with them, and He made His presence felt daily. That boldness is missing from today’s Christian women, in my experience. Then again, I was saved in Germany, so my experience with American Christianity is somewhat limited. Notwithstanding, I glorify God for your witness.

      Your are right: It is the Lord; I too know it. You have no idea how often I have prayed in my spirit to share with someone who could relate to what I am going through and has also taken the red pill and knows how deep the rabbit hole goes. I have often wanted to share with someone who also feels a burden for the lost sheep of the wayward mission field of America, and has an uncompromising zeal for the Word of God. I covet your prayers and those of your family.

      Indeed, the Roman Catholic church is the Great Harlot of Revelation 13, 17 and 18. The Lord has shown me this conclusively. God saved me in the Roman Catholic city of Munich, Germany and I went immediately out and witnessed to them that they were worshiping “another Jesus, another spirit, and another gospel.” I continue to do the same here. I believe God has given me a burden for Roman Catholics and I struggle trying to find the right way to witness to them, for they are steeped in religion, yet far from the Lord. They are horribly deceived. I pray for them constantly and pray for the Lord to show me how to love them more.

      I too am very glad you came to this site. You have strengthened me immeasurably and have added to my spiritual arsenal “the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness.” I thank you for this.

      I praise God for you, dear sister. In you God has shown me once again that He is indeed a prayer-answering God. May the Good Lord keep you, protect you, and continue to nourish you up in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Be encouraged, dear sister, and look up: for our redemption draweth nigh!

  3. Dear Still Man,

    Great is the faithfulness of our God. In reading your response, the scripture from Isaiah came to my heart: “Lord who hath believed our report and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” This is a question I used to ask the Lord many times, wondering if anyone was receiving the word of God in these times, and the answer was always, “Have faith in God”. The Lord showed me that His sheep know His voice; sheep that He must go and bring into the fold by the preaching of the gospel.

    Some of these sheep are coming out of Catholocism and all the other “isms” that are out there. How can they here except God sends His messenger. When the Lord asked who will go for us, Isaiah said, “Here am I Lord send me.” God knows your burden for the lost, and He will empower your witness unto them all the more by the Holy Ghost. In your lifting up Jesus, He is drawing them unto himself. Just as you and I heard, others will hear too: just as God’s loving kindness lifted us, they are being lifted out of the snare of the fowler.

    You are so right about America being in need of the gospel. I’ve gone to other countries, and also heard testimony of others who have ministered the gospel in other nations and saw how readily they received the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have come home and wondered why don’t I see this same demonstration of the power of God in the lives of those who profess him: why don’t people here have the same hunger for God? It is because they don’t know Jesus; they have a form of godliness (tradition) but deny His power to transform them through their unbelief and hardness of heart. Jesus could not do many miracles in His own town because of their unbelief.

    As for my boldness, the Lord tells us to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might; It is because I truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ; I am convinced of His Lordship. As I follow on to know Him, I give Him my weaknesses and my strengths, so that I am made stronger in depending upon Him: “for when I am weak, then He is strong.”

    It is love for God and love for humanity that I am compelled to reach out and to speak out. I think on what hell is, and I don’t want anyone to go there. I think on what heaven is, and I want everyone to go there, though I know not everyone will. Also, every time I look back and see what God has already done, I am embolden all the more. In what times I am afraid, I will call upon the name of the Lord, for His courage.

    Naturally, I am a very determined and bold creature, but God has sanctified that by His Holy Spirit, so that in my zealousness, I will be ‘wise as a serpent but harmless as a dove’: He is tempering me with his grace, gentleness and loving kindness. I love The Lord and the souls whom God has made. Love is a miracle; God is love.

    I’ve one more thing to say about the generational curses in my family line. You spoke about causing our children to pass through the fire unto Molech, and this very real. The scriptures tells us the the first things belong unto God (first fruits, first born). My great grandmother on my mother’s side made a pact with the devil to dedicate the first born girls in the family line unto Satan. In other words, any first girl born to any family member throughout our generations the witches and wizards would make designs upon to lead them in the way of darkness, continuing the curse.

    My mother was not the first born in the her family of the girls, but the Lord had to show her this so that she will continue to walk with Him and pray for the salvation of her family. In her being born of His spirit, that was the first time that this cycle of sin could be broken in our family. It is the blood of Jesus that breaks every curse. God has the power to break any oaths of darkness. God has the power to save.

    My mother brought us up in the fear and admonition of the Lord; she dedicated each and everyone of her children (ten) unto the Lord, just as Mary and Joseph brought Jesus into the temple to the Priest Simeon. She didn’t have anyone in her family to show her the way though they were religious after the tradition of men. The Holy Spirit was her guide and teacher. My mother was determined to give us Jesus, and for me that is the best gift she could ever give me.

    She stands on the promises of God, fasts and prays for us even now, just as Job did for his children. Job taught his children the ways of the Lord, and he also made regular sacrifices for his children before the Lord, just in case they secretly cursed God in their hearts; little did Job know that the whirlwind would come and take them all out, and thank God he prayed daily for the Lord hears the cries of the righteous.

    The sins of my great grandmother caused so much havoc in the lives of her children and their children, until God found someone in the family who would choose to live for Him. My mother witnessed and prayed for her grandmother and mother for years though they did not hold a close relationship, and they finally did come to know Christ Jesus. However, it was a very long hard spiritual fight, but when we as children of God walk up right before Him, he will hear our prayers.

    As for my father, Satan entered into him at will: he was completely sold out to Satan. He was a most wicked man; cruel to his wife and children (abusive). He threatned to burn us out of our home, and so much more. He’d fly into rages without any provokation, other than Satan in him hated us: he was without natural affection, and determined to let Satan use him against us in any manner. He was full of stupor-stitions (superstitions).

    God however, was using this opportunity to teach my mother and her children how to stand in the Lord and what spiritual warfare was really all about. My mother would witness him doing rituals and would go and ask the Lord what does it mean (how is this being used, to what intent) and God would reveal it to her through His word by the Holy Spirit. I can only scratch the surface here.

    God eventually delivered us from having to live with this man daily; he left the household, however, he still continued fighting us through witchcraft from where he was. The fact that none of it worked against us was a testimony to the wicked that God is all powerful, so that they know that they didn’t have to stay tethered to Satan. Satan lies to those he enslaves; he convinces them that he is all powerful, but he isn’t. Only God is, and the Father must use someone to demonstrate this. He used Moses to demonstrate to Pharaoh his might, majesty and glory.

    He did accept the Lord finally upon his death bed. During the time that he was languishing with cancer, God sent my brother to him to witness about Jesus Christ and hell. We all had forgiven his trespasses, because we didn’t want him going to hell. “Love covers a multitude of sins”. We had to love him with the love of God all along, that our hearts wouldn’t be filled with bitterness and our prayers be hindered. We prayed for his wicked soul even though he was not around us.

    This battle went on for decades; sometimes the battle for souls goes on for a long while before we see the results of our prayers: not because God doesn’t hear us, but because He is working things out in those for whom we are praying, and even at times in us. We stood against the evil that he performed, but we loved his soul, and He had to confess in the end the goodness of the Lord; he had to confess Jesus as Lord. That’s all that matters.

    God calls us out from amongst our family that we will come to know him, so that our families can be saved. God called Abraham out from amongst his kin, so that they will come to know and serve the Lord, make of him a great nation and that through his seed, all nations of the earth shall be blessed. God usually has one in a family somewhere along the line who will answer his call. God is big on family. All God needs is one faithful unto him out of a family, who will not bow their knees to Baal, and he will take their testimony to bless others, and save their family, even if they may never have a relationship on this earth. What is most important is that their soul will not be lost forever.

    I am a witness that God has the power to save, to forgive men their trespasses, to redeem. There is no oath of darkness that cannot be broken by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and what God has blessed no man can curse.

    Still Man, God hasn’t forgotten you or your family. He knows how heavy the burden has been; and continue to cast every care upon Him for he cares for you. He has a great love for you. The heaviness that comes like waves upon your heart at times, He will ease; just continue to trust His might and give Him praise. The Lord Jesus comfort your heart with these words which our Lord Jesus spoke unto us: “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you (St. John 14:27).

    • Sister, Davis, indeed God does know His sheep. People are waking up to the truth of the Gospel and the verity of Scripture. He woke me out of my slumber, so He will do the same for others and is doing it. You’re witness is a perfect example.

      Unlike you, I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing anyone coming out of Catholicism to the light of Jesus Christ. But I continue to pray for them and witness to them and pass out gospel tracts to them. I sincerely hope that they will bear fruit. I pray constantly for God to show me how to love them more and not to hate them in spite of their treatment of me. I know in my heart that they can’t do any better because the God they serve hates me; so they have to hate me also.

      But I’m learning to love them and that’s the amazing thing. I am actually starting to love them and to grieve for their souls. All I can think about is how Stephen, even while he was being stoned, prayed that the Lord would not hold his death against the Jews. That’s how I want to be. I want to love them more than I love my own life. It is only through that kind of love that I can continue to witness to them in spite of the consequences. I do so hope you are right that my witness to them is drawing them unto Him.

      I reread your post of a couple days ago and understood that you have been on the mission field and have even had a weapon pointed at you. So, I know that you mean business when you say that you must contend for the faith. I can only imagine how American Christianity must disappoint you. I have only witnessed in Germany but I can tell you that they received the Gospel more willingly than people here do. I even witnessed to two Jehovah’s Witnesses there and they were so open-minded and receptive that we even prayed together that God would open their eyes. That has never happened here.

      America’s lukewarm Christianity is famous the world over. But it won’t be a problem for long. People here are getting more and more hostile to the Gospel message. Pastor Fred Winters got gunned down one Sunday in his church while preaching the Gospel. Street preachers Tite Sufra and Stephen Ocean were gunned down by a man they had just witnessed to. This is a portent of what is soon to come. Persecution will heat the church up real quick.

      The story of your great-grandmother making a pact with Satan is chilling. It makes me wonder how many people whom many of us know have done this very thing, and how many of our loved ones have serious problems in their lives because they were similarly dedicated to the Infernal One. It was an act of God that you learned about your great-grandmother’s witchcraft. I believe that most of the people whose ancestors practiced witchcraft and possibly even offered them up to Satan have no idea it was done.

      It blows my mind when I hear about people who willingly serve Satan knowing that he’s a liar and a murderer. Once, when witnessing to a Freemason, I told him that Freemasons worship Lucifer, thinking that he didn’t know that. But it turned out he did know that and in fact told me that he did it for financial benefits. He was the first person who told me up front that he was a Satan worshiper.

      This was three years ago when I first returned to the U.S. I have since come to realize that a great many people here are sold out to Satan in one form or another. And it shows. St. Louis is reputedly the most dangerous city in America. It is also the most pagan. Roman Catholicism rules here as well as Freemasonry. As a matter of fact, the Gateway Arch is a Freemason symbol. Freemasonry is witchcraft and Baal worship, which is idolatry, so can there be any wonder St. Louis has so many problems? The city is sold out to idols.

      I don’t have any specific knowledge that any of my family members are involved in witchcraft, but there have been signs that something is definitely going on. Unfortunately, it has had devastating consequences for them spiritually. They are so far from God. I constantly pray for them, but I have a sinking feeling that, like your father, it would take a significant emotional event like a terminal illness before they would even consider Jesus. I hope it doesn’t come to that.

      But I’ll keep on praying for them, because, like you, I don’t want them to go to Hell. I want to see them in Heaven with me. You know, when I was younger, I would hear Godly women say that they couldn’t do certain things because “I’ve got too many people to pray for.” I didn’t know what they were talking about then, but I know now; and that’s what keeps me going. I’ve got way too many people to pray for to throw my hands in the air and give up. Far be it from me to sin against the Lord in failing to pray for them.

      When I look back over my life, I can see how God has had His hand on me all my life. Though I was lost, I could have been a lot worse. It seems that at times He would not allow me to go too far. I have learned to rely heavily on Him and not on my own strength. Sometimes I think about the position I’ve taken on the Gospel and I can’t believe that I have said some of the things that I’ve said. That’s why I know that God can do anything and has power to change men’s hearts.

      You are so blessed to have a godly mother. She broke the cycle of rebellion. And due to her faithfulness, her children are saved and here you are encouraging me in the Lord. God is so good!

      I am so grateful for your encouraging words. Believe me, when I say this. I know firsthand that Jesus was right when He said the day would come when a man’s foes would be of his own house. But I will continue to trust in Him and praise Him. Thank you for your boldness. They encourage me to stay bold. May the good Lord keep you and encourage you.

      “Finally brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8).

  4. Dear Still Man,

    I am encouraged through what God has shown me here in this blog. I’ve been reading some of your other posts, and I see where your heart is, with the Lord Jesus Christ. Yes, I’ve been disappointed many times, perplexed at other times and even hurt by those who say they are of the household of faith but are truly of the synagogue of Satan. However, none of these things move me away from my Lord anymore. It is my duty and honor to witness and teach the gospel, it is the Holy Spirit’s work to inspire an opening in the hearts of those who have ears to hear and eyes to see. I observe what’s done against me, but I focus on what Jesus has done for me and what He promises to do.

    To be an open epistle, I’m tempted to avenge myself at times, but thank the Lord His Holy Spirit is able to reign me in under His control. My mother taught me to pray this word of scripture “Lord what would you have me to do” and then wait for an answer (“wait on the Lord and be of good courage”). This has helped me tremendously for in our waiting on the Lord, we possess our souls.

    You are aboslutely right about St. Louis; my brother and sister told me of the demonic warfare that they encountered just passing through there on their way to another state. The Lord has shown me that there are certain cities and towns where Satan has been given a seat (we wrestle against Principalities and rulers of darkness and powers and spiritual wickedness in high places) through the works of those who are the founders of the that city or town. Some enjoy sitting at Satan’s table. Many of our major cities and towns have been built by Freemasons, and since I know that higher degreed Freemasons certainly know they are worshipping Lucifer, then I also know that they have dedicated their works unto him. It’s just like the city of Pyrgamos in the book of Revelations who had a major temple and altar built to Zeus there, that was Satan’s seat for the idol Zeus is none other than Satan. The Lord commended the church at Pyrgamos for despising the seat of Satan.

    Many of the towns and cities are set along coordinates on the map which correspond to numerology. People in the occult are very ritualistic believing that in keeping those rituals they are going to gain some fortune or power with the devil. They place symbols of their demons there to draw the evil spirits there: the demons manifest themselves in many different ways especially through violence, and they draw other witches and wizards to that location (city, town, state): there is an attraction, an affinity for darkness making that place a cesspool of sin. These evil people who have dedicated their lives and works to Satan think that they are controlling the demons, but the demons are controlling them. I understand what you mean.

    The major cities in the stone states (east coast where I live) are awful too. Their hearts are stoney ground, but God has to place his best in the some the toughest neighborhoods to be a light. They are watching us very closely even when we don’t say a word. This is what the Lord revealed to us about my town. Many were watching us (spying and reporting lies) for evil, while others were amazed at our strength (which is only in the Lord), because they know all that they and others have done against us. One former worker of iniquity who was with them changed his allegiance from Satan to Christ Jesus when He witnessed the true power of God within our daily life (“A city upon a hill cannot hide the light that is shinning.” ) Another neighbor after so many years, finally broke down and told on all the rest of them, under the conviction of the Holy Ghost, and she repented. This was the one from whom we’d least expect it. The entire neighborhood is full of witches and wizards, and this one family that God ordained be here as a light unto them all, some unto deliverance and others unto their damnation, because they have rejected Jesus, not us.

    Here’s what I know best, “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof and all they that dwell therein”: though Satan may have a seat here and there, he still must tremble and bow before the Eternal King Christ Jesus. The name of Jesus is above every name that is named and that includes the name of St. Louis’ Principality: also (the name of violence, murder, cruel hatred and etc…) “One, shall chase a thousand, and two shall put ten thousand to flight.” You are one child of God in your neighborhood, but your faith in the God of gods is able to put a thousand demons running out of the territory, and that is my prayer.

    Yes indeed the Lord is going to allow the purging fires to come here all the more to cleanse the daughters of Zion, to turn the hearts of the people back to Him, and to separate the wheat from the chaff (the genuine from the hypocrites). We must be tried in the fire to come forth as pure gold. Many who are called by Christ Jesus’ name recoil at this. I am as Paul, “Oh, to know Him in the power of His might and in the fellowship of His sufferings.” The Lord through his judgments is going to make the luke warm choose a path, left or to the right. Those that will live Godly in this world must suffer persecution, but be of good cheer for Christ Jesus has overcome this world.

    I’ve one question; why is your blog tittled “The Still Man”? Is it based upon some scripture or is it based upon that which you are? For instance, I’m no chatty Cathy; I’m of a quiet observant nature, but anyone can get me talking about the Lord Jesus. I cannot withhold the truth of word of the Lord and I am compelled to tell all that He has ever done for me. I could have been killed in my childhood years from a gas explosion, and through many other dangers, toils and snares that I’ve already come. The Lord Jesus has not allowed the destroyer to destroy me, so how can I keep from singing of God’s amazing grace? They that go down into the grave cannot praise God in the land of the living.

    My dear beloved brother, I love you with the love of Jesus Christ. May His countenance shine upon you and ever bright through you, and may the joy of the Lord carry you unto triumphant victory over every circumstance.

    • My dear sister Davis,

      I hope you had a spirit-filled and blessed day. I would have answered your comment sooner, but would you believe that the the moment after I read your last lines and attempted to respond, the power went out? And it only went out in the living room where my computer is. I’ll let you ponder that for a moment. Truly Satan does not like the Lord’s children agreeing. I need to go get that taken care of shortly, so I’ll have to be brief.

      The story regarding the name “The Still Man” is an interesting one indeed, and you are the first person who ever asked me what it means. I took it from The Mayor of Casterbridge, a novel by Thomas Hardy. Without going in-depth, the title character wants his rival, a young man named Henchard, followed. So, he hires a rather seedy fellow named Jopp for this task. Hardy describes Jopp thus:

      “Jopp, who, standing hands-pocketed at the street corner till the sun had faded the shoulders of his coat to scarecrow green, had regularly watched Henchard in the market place, measured him, and learnt him, by virtue of the power which the still man has in his stillness of knowing the busy one better than he knows himself.”

      Sister, that line hit me in the face like a sledgehammer; for I realized that I was Henchard. I was so busy that I paid little attention to what was going on around me. That was why strange things were happening to me and I had no idea why. I spent more time in contemplation than in observation.

      From the moment of that realization, I decided that I would flip the script: I would become “The Still Man” and learn as much about the enemy as he had learned about me. It was then that God started to reveal the enemy to me in all his depravity, and The Still Man was born. It was no accident that God made that line in the novel jump out at me, just as it was no accident that I just happened to be reading that book. And I would not have been reading the book had I not gone back to school, for it was a textbook; and i would not have gone back to school had I not returned from Germany, etc. etc. God has had His hand on me all the time. I am a witness to his All-Providence, Wisdom, and Power.

      I too love you in the Lord, my beloved sister, and I am as blessed from your comforting words and quiet spirit as i am encouraged and emboldened by your powerful testimony and zeal for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

      Thank you for clothing me with the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness. The Lord keep you and watch over you. Be encouraged dear sister and of good cheer.

      Tony

  5. Dear Still Man (Tony),

    Yes, I did have a spirit-filled and blessed day, and I hope you did as well. I pray everything has worked out with the electricity; and, yes I understand what happened. I have “technical difficulties” of many sorts at times. I’m just glad you were able to answer me when you did: thank you.

    I like your use of “The Still Man”; brilliantly applied here. Am I really the first person to ask the significance of this moniker? It caught me and stayed with me from the first, so I assumed that perhaps others knew and thought that I was Johnny come lately :). From what I’ve read of you so far, I knew it held a deeper meaning that begged to be made known. Perhaps, that’s just the way I see things?

    So, I was correct in thinking that it reveals something of who you are, or at least who you have become. You are very astute in studying who the enemy is and their tactics. Jesus revealed him, and He expects us to understand the enemy, so that we can wage a good warfare. He tells us to watch as well as pray.

    You know, it is a tactic of the enemy to keep us busy, distracted, so that we won’t get to know the Lord first, and thereby the enemy. I once read somewhere that one of the greatest weapons that the devil has is that many don’t know he exists; so they can’t fight him. He is the one inspiring all these wicked people to do the wicked things that they do, and we had better know that of which they are capable. He goes about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may destroy, and so does his children. Lord deliver us from strange children as the Psalmist has prayed!

    Tony, the path you have taken has been inspired by the Lord, though it may not have been exactly the one that you would have carved for yourself, I am, and many others I’m sure, are benefiting from that path. I am glad that you are, period. I’m also glad that you’ve come to be “The Still Man”.

    I’m going to continue to read you and let others know about you; I’m loyal to those who are loyal to the Father in heaven. IF I go silent, it may be “techinical difficulties”, but know that I’m yet hear being “The Still Woman”: learning and growing through the wisdom and skill with which God has blessed you; watching and praying for you and yours.

    I’ve enjoyed conversing with you, but I don’t want to be a space or time hog. I pray you have a peaceful night; the Lord Jesus give his angels charge over you and make your way prosperous, in Jesus name (“If God be for us, who can be against us?”).

    Lena

    • My dear Sister Lena,

      I’m glad you had a good day and more than that, a Godly day: “for what lasting value is a good day, if it’s not also a Godly day.” Really, you are the first person who’s asked me the significance of “The Still Man.” I’m actually glad you asked me, because I had forgotten the circumstances that prompted my adopting that name. It was very intuitive of you to know that it was not arbitrary.

      You are right: keeping us busy is one of Satans’s favorite tactics. And making us believe he doesn’t exist is indeed probably his greatest tactic. There is a song by The Rolling Stones (who are avowed Satanists) wherein Mick Jagger, speaking as Satan, makes that very statement. We had better learn as much about him as we can because he has many weapons in his arsenal, and he has the advantage of time and vast intelligence over us. We had better stay yoked to the Lord Jesus and sensitive to the leading of the Holy Spirit.

      I’m so grateful for your encouraging words, Lena. You seem to know exactly what I am feeling. You’re right: I would not ever have chosen this career path. But it has become clear to me that this is the Lord’s will, and you have confirmed that. On a very primitive level, I can understand what Paul meant when he called himself “The Prisoner of the Lord,” and for me at least, you caught the essence it. But I am grateful that the Lord has seen fit to use me and has enabled me to be of service to the Body of Christ. Jesus Christ has been so good to me.

      I’m grateful that you have benefited from this site. Coming from you that means a lot. But the gratitude is mutual: I too have benefited from your witness. You know from my testimony where and how I was saved. Because my church experience was wanting, I knew nothing of praise and thanksgiving as another arrow in my quiver of spiritual arrows. I learned that from you. The Lord sent you to this site at the very least to teach me that—and I’m extremely grateful.

      I too have enjoyed conversing with you. You have been a golden glorious orb of day shining through the clouds warming my soul and spirit (obviously, poetry is not my strong suit). I have been greatly encouraged by you. Thank you, Lena.

      You have neither hogged my time nor space, in fact, quite the contrary. Let’s keep in touch.

      I pray that you also will have a peaceful night, and may the Lord continue to watch over and protect you and your family. I covet your prayers and I will continue to lift you up in prayer.

      Be The Still Woman.

      Tony

  6. Dear Still Man,

    How was your day my precious brother? I trust that all is well through Christ Jesus. I am well; it is well with my soul.

    I am pleased that you are willing to indulge me further in conversation. I wanted to respect your time, because of the time you need to study and also to answer others. I also know that you need time to rest; in an effort to anticipate your needs I thought to be silent, if only for a while.

    If I seem to know what you are feeling, it is only the Holy Spirit, for who can know our thoughts and our heart afar off except for Him. He’s the one that allows me to feel what you feel, because I have a heart to love God and my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus. The scriptures admonish that we should “have a special love for the household of faith”, and He knits our hearts together in brotherly love as is written. I know why the Lord has written this in His word: It’s a cold, crude world our there, and Satan hates us with cruel hatred.

    I have plenty of sisters and brothers in the natural whom I love dearly, and there is also a fondness in discovering family that you never knew you had by faith. My mother had a habit of bringing home perfect strangers (sometimes entire families) and giving them a room, a meal or whatever they needed, and she fed them the word of God all the while they were there; sometimes months at a time. She did it from her heart as unto the Lord, and never asked for anything in exchange: she just wanted them to love and to know her Jesus (just as Jesus provided for the people’s needs as He ministered the word of the Father).

    Many times her love went unrequited; people left and didn’t say thanks’ people became envious and false accusers because of covetousness, just as many mistreated and misunderstood Jesus, even Judas. However, that never stopped mom from doing what was right in the eyes of the Lord (Matthew 5- do good them which despitefully use you) and God would bless her for it, because she did it out of love.

    As we her children grew older, we did the same thing mom would do, bring others we met (at school, at the dormitory, on the streets, in the work place) home with us and give them Jesus. These were people from all walks of life: rich and poor; black, white, and latino; educated and under educated; relatives and even enemies too. She gave us and them what she never had as a child growing up: love and acceptance, security, a home, and as a result, some have made it home to be with the Father. She never compromised the gospel of Jesus Christ for her blood children or for the children of every age she became mother too.

    If you’d ask any of my siblings today, they will tell you that this is truely how we lived; my mother will say the same. I’m giving you the condensed version, but that is the heart of my mother; she literally put God’s word into action, and that is how I learned to give others not only room at the table but room in my heart. I can feel for you; it is genuine, because God who is love, in me, is genuinely the lover of your soul. Does this make sense to you?

    I often pray that God broadens the capacity of my heart to love Him first and foremost and my neighbor as myself: He does. You are more than my neighbor, my brother. I don’t like it when people are alone, or hurting (physically, emotionally, mentally, or any other way to hurt). As the Aposlte John, we will all have an isle of Patmos experience, that we may see Christ Our Lord, and when it is in my power to do good, I’m going to do it; I’ll be there as the Lord enables me and as the Holy Spirit directs: I cannot do less than He has done.

    As I was preparing to rest last night (after I had posted here), I was put in rememberance of the scripture in 2 Corinthians 2:11- “Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” I thought, “This is what this blog helps to dispell, ignorance of Satan’s devices, so that he cannot gain advantage.” This is important work that you are doing: I really don’t need to tell you that, but for the sake of others I am saying it. What we don’t know can harm us. You’re someone with a military background, and I’m certain you know the importance of knowing your enemy.

    I was reading a book about our adversary the devil and how he works against the Body of Christ. The author was conveying that Satan’s strength is in exact proportion to his wisdom. I thought on the scripture in Ezekiel 28:12 that describes Lucifer as being created “full of wisdom”. That wisdom is entirely corruptible now, so this makes him an formidable foe: formidable but not impossible to overthrow by the power of the Holy Ghost in the name of Jesus! The author’s intent was for the Christian not to underestimate the enemy, and as you stated, “stay closely yoked to the Lord Jesus and sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading”.

    Brother Tony, your linguistic skills are serving you well here. You said poetry wasn’t your strong suit; I beg to differ. You were very poetic in conveying that a bright spot in your day is amongst the thoughts that are shared here, and that goes for me too. On this note, I’ll leave you to your thoughts. Lord willing, I’ll speak with you soon. Always remember, “There be more with us than with them.”

    • Dear Sister Lena:

      My day was very blessed, thank you, sweet sister. I had a prayer answered today that I did not see coming at all. And to think that it came on Thanksgiving Eve. God is good all the time.

      I hope you had a pleasant day. I thank you for wanting to respect my time, but it is no bother at all to converse with you. I think, though, that I may create a forum of sorts and move our conversations there. It could also be used for people to make general comments, request information, etc. that may be edifying. Of course, you could always email me if it is off-topic.

      You are blessed to have seen your mother’s charity in action. It’s a given that people like your mother will be sometimes taken advantage of. It goes with the territory. It has happened to me also on occasion. You just tell yourself that if you are truly doing it for that person’s benefit, then thanks or recompense is not important, because, like you said, there will be those who, like the nine out of the ten lepers, will not return to say thanks. You have benefited greatly from that atmosphere of love and charity, as it has given you a love and empathy that traverses continents.

      As for me, I was brought up by an emotionally compromised mother who trusted no one. Unfortunately, she had good reason to be that way: the neighborhood I grew up in was one of the roughest in St. Louis. Love and trust did not come easy for me. But I can tell you that Jesus breaks down all strongholds and emotional strongholds are His specialty. He has taught me how to love and to empathize with others. I am grateful for this.

      You spoke well when you said that we will all have an isle of Patmos. I am the sole resident of that isle right now. But, I was listening to a pastor last night who said that God puts us in such situations sometimes to grow us up and I can tell you for a fact that that is exactly what has happened in my situation. The events of the last four years were nothing short of incredible and what is even more amazing is that very few people (except my enemies) know anything about it. I am amazed that I am able to put one foot in front of the other every day let alone lift up my voice in praise. This is the power of God.

      I am grateful because not everyone who goes through the valley comes out of the other side with their faith intact. For example, I was listening to a Christian radio counseling ministry last night. A lady called who was in dire straits because she could not feel the presence of Jesus Christ in her life after having experienced a divorce, physical disability, and financial difficulty. This poor woman was so distraught because she did not know how she was going to make it through life without Jesus. She said, “I would rather die than live like this. I don’t know what I did wrong.” How terrible!

      I thank you for your endorsement. Yes, we need to know the enemy, because he certainly knows us. As you well know, the enemy laughs at us because he literally has us surrounded, yet most of us have no idea. Satan has created an alternate reality for most Christians to keep us ignorant to what is going on around us.

      That was the message of “The Truman Story.” The more I thought about that movie, the more I realized that it was a message from Satan letting us know what he is doing to us. Someone once said that everything that Satan does he is obliged by God to let us know about it. This is consistent with God’s declaration that He does nothing without first publishing it through His prophets. Hollywood is Satan’s way of telling the “truth.” Understand that nothing that Hollywood makes is purely for entertainment. It’s for world shaping.

      In “The Truman Story,” as you may recall, the director of the show, the “voice of God,” was named Christoff (Christ-off). And Truman (True Man) was the only real (or true) person in his world. Everyone else was playing a part. They were not real. His friends weren’t real. His neighbors weren’t real. His wife wasn’t real. Even his parents weren’t real. He was watched everywhere he went. And every single person in his life was involved in espionage.

      When he was a teenager, he met a young girl who fell in love with him and tried to tell him the truth, but before she could, Truman’s “father” showed up and sent the girl away. Truman’s entire reality was controlled.

      This is what Satan is doing to us. He has many, many people whose entire mission in life is to control certain people’s reality. How do I know this? There have been days when practically everyone I meet has had a very bad attitude. I realized after a while that this was being done to affect my attitude. This is a mild example of mind control. Now extend this to an individual. Let us call him Truman. Let’s say that someone wants to ensure that Truman will grow up to be a racist. All that is needed is to make sure that every encounter Truman has with a particular race will be bad.

      To reinforce this, the puppet masters will make sure that those whom Truman trusts will reinforce this race opinion. His teachers will tell him that race X is bad, apish, ignorant, un-evolved. His parents will tell him to avoid Race X because they are evil. Can you see where all this could go? And everywhere Truman goes, no matter where he goes, everyone in his immediate vicinity will be part of the world-shaping team. They will make sure he is always isolated from “normal” people. Can you see how someone’s worldview can be shaped in this way? This can be used to create a Hitler or a Malcolm X.

      Now, if I can come up with this, without any formal knowledge of such an operation, having only a movie and personal experience as references, is such a thing not possible for Satan? But God lets His people know what is going on, and I truly believe such a thing is being done and that “The Truman Show” was Satan’s way of letting us know. This is what is being done to the Christian community. Our worldview is being shaped. We are being led to believe that everything is hunky-dory when it is not. And the forces of darkness are itching to tell us because they feel totally in control. Every now and then someone will say, “You guys have no idea what’s going to hit you.” One day when I was leaving the post office, a man was going in with a cart full of books like he was going to ship them all. As he passed me, he handed me a book entitled, Why Christianity Must Change or Die.” There is a war going on.

      And just like in “The Truman Show” there were cameras in his house, his car—everywhere, so is it with particular people: those who have “awakened.” This is my belief. But just as Joseph said that his brothers “meant it for evil, but God meant it for good,” so is He using this as an opportunity for those whom He has chosen from the enemy’s camp to see the Truth in action. God will use this, IS using this.

      I thank you, sister, for your encouragement. In case you hadn’t guessed, another purpose of this site was to let someone in the body of Christ know that I exist, and what I am going though. To find out if I was the only one these things are happening to. In this regard, it has already served its purpose, as you are proof.

      You have no idea how comforting it is to know that you and your family are praying for me. I am grateful for this.

      Be encouraged, dear sister.

      “There hath no temptation taken you but such that is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it” 1 Corinthians 10:13.

  7. I would question your interpretation of the word “visiting.” It is never used in the manner you suggest – as in to “appoint” or “bestow.” The word is appropriately translated as “punish” in other versions outside of the KJV – and even in the KJV, the root word is translated as “punish” in similar contexts.

    God punishing iniquity is quite a different thing than God causing the descendants to have pressure to follow in the iniquity.

    • Thank you, Aaron, for your comment. To begin, a generational curse is about punishment. That is the overarching theme of this article. But I will address your contention.

      The word “visiting” is listed in Srong’s Concordance as meaning “to appoint” and “to bestow” and are the second and third definitions, respectively, out of thirty; whereas “punish” is the twenty-fourth. Now in a dictionary, definitions are always listed in order of preference. But with Strong’s they are listed in order of frequency, because there is a finite number of times the word appears in the Bible. At number twenty four, “punish” occurs very seldom. But it is used. How then, does one determine which to use? By considering context and semantics.

      Exodus 20: 5 says,

      “Visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children…”

      Grammatically, this is a verb phrase where the verb has to be able to be modified by the prepositional phrase “upon the children,” because it is the recipient of the action “visiting.” In other words, the prepositional phrase “upon the children” is being used here as an indirect object. Because iniquity is a direct object, which can be a noun or a noun phrase, it should be possible to replace it with a pronoun. We should also be able to take out the prepositional phrase “of the fathers,” since it only modifies the direct object.

      Therefore, substituting the verb punishing for “visiting,” the pronoun it for “iniquity,” and taking out the prepositional phrase “of the fathers,” the sentence reads:

      “Punishing it upon the children.”

      Semantically, this makes no sense. The preposition upon requires a verb that suggests the transference of something from one place to another or from one person to another (i.e. put, place, sit, etc.). Punishing does not fulfill this requirement, neither does appoint.

      Bestow, however, fulfills this requirement perfectly, because it is a transitive verb that normally takes the preposition upon as a compliment. And it just happens to be the third definition given (after appoint). Substituting the word bestowing, yields the following:

      “Bestowing it upon the children.”

      The difference is obvious.

      The verb punish rarely takes a preposition and when it does, it is usually the preposition for:

      Ex: He was punished for coming home late.

      The verb bestow however, almost always takes the preposition upon:

      Ex: High honors were bestowed upon him.

      We should also not discount the context of the sentence. God wants to make it clear that not only the punishment for the sin would be “visited” upon the children, but the very sin itself. If you read the article thoroughly, you will see that I give examples, both biblical and practical, that clearly demonstrate this. There are many who could testify how certain sins continue in their families for many generations with devastating results. This is because the sins are literally visited, or bestowed upon succeeding generations. Now you may disagree with my interpretation, but there is just too much evidence to support it.

  8. Dear SillMan and Sister Lena,

    I thank God for both of your testimonies. I believe that God spoke a word to me, and revealed to me that both I and my husband were under generational curses. I am a bastard child. My mother and father fornicated and I was the result of that sin.

    My husband’s father is homosexual and transgendered, and I believe because of his father’s sin, his mother and brother are both bound by demons in their house. Both his mother and brother are demoniacs. It wasnt until I came back to the knowledge of God, that God reveled these things to me. His grandmother is an eastern star and his best friend is a freemason. I am pregnant with my first child and I pray for protection from the enemy for me my husband and baby. I would like you both to go before God and pray for us. We are in the middle of demonic forces, trying to tear us limb from limb.

    I believe that God lead me here, because He wanted me to know what Im up against. My husband is bound, and I pray that God will visit him and reveal truth to him so that he can be free. Otherwise, I dont think we can be together, unequally yoked. He has demonic items in the house that he doesnt know are demonic. I pray for the words to say to him so that he will get rid of these things.

    I would fast but Im pregnant. If I was pregnant I would go without food, all I can do is pray without ceasing. This is what God instucted me to do.

    I pray that you and both your houses will be blessed by the power of the Holy Spirit. It wasnt our fault that our forefathers were so sinful, but blessed be to God that He made a way for us on calvery!

    • Amen sister. I’m sorry for what you are going through: it must be very difficult for you. What you are describing certainly sounds like a generational curse. I’m grateful that God lead you to this site, as the information is scriptural, and if you prayerfully follow it, you can be set free. I’m a witness.

      Freemasonry is definitely witchcraft, and I believe that many who are under a generational curse find themselves involved in Freemasonry, as I was. As far as leaving your husband to not be unequally yoked, you may want to think it over. I would highly suggest that you read our post on being unequally yoked,. Many Christians feel they should leave their marriages because they are yoked to an unbeliever, but the Bible says otherwise.

      As for the occult objects in the house, you must pray that God will open his eyes to the truth. Many, who have been delivered from the occult, automatically know that they have to get rid of all their occult objects. This is because the Holy Spirit will reveal this to them. There is biblical precedent for this found in the Book of Acts:

      “And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.
      “And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds.
      “Many of them also which used curious arts (witchcraft) brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver” (Acts 19:17-19).

      As you can see, no one told these people that they had to do this. The Holy Ghost revealed it to them. So, before he will understand that he must get rid of these things, your husband must first understand that these things are an offense to God. Even with these things in the home, you can protect yourself and your unborn child from them by binding the spirits that are in them in the name of Jesus.

      There is also biblical precedent for this. Remember that in the Book of 2 Kings Naaman, the leper, was cured by Elisha the prophet. Naaman was grateful to God and he understood that idolatry was wrong. So he asked Elisha to ask God to forgive him when he would have to accompany his king into the house of his idol to pray. And Elisha said that God would understand. God will also understand that you know that these occult objects are an abomination, and He will forgive you and protect you.

      I will be praying for you and your family, so be encouraged.

      The Still Man

  9. Also, I forgot to mention. My husband was raised roman catholic by his sodomite father. I see a contiuation of your series on generational curses and I will read more. Thank you for reading

    • Roman Catholicism is idolatry and idolatry is the #1 sin that God hates. Being a Roman Catholic will, without question, earn you a generational curse.

  10. I do not have a comment, still have to read everything but I have a question.

    Two years ago my daughter was possessed with something. She had stomach cramps, she said it feels like something pushing from the inside out. She made funny noices. It happened 1 January 2011 at 00:15the morning. She celebrated new year’s with her friend she met in December. They were sitting around a plate of food and incence was burning. She felt a bump and immediately asked her friend what did he do to her. From then on, everything went quickly downhill. She was in tremendous pain and was delirous. We eventually called a pastor who came and prayed and the symptoms started to subside. The attacks became less and less. She married this friend but got divorced after 10 months of marriage.

    After she met this guy, she also started having anxiety attacks. It comes and goes but she can have 10 or more a day. When she’s sleeping she will get the attacks and then wake up. She’s finding it extremely difficult to cope and we are wondering if she was cursed or still have the demon inside her. She never spoke in a different language but it will make her behave like a snake, she couldn’t lie still and she also hissed, she will look at you and hiss in your face. She also started menstruating out of the blue. It was terrible seeing her like that, afterwards she will sleep, the whole episode was so exhausting but then it starts again and again. She will say that she feels it still inside her and when she gets that funny feeling, she prays or we will sit with her praying, she fought hard to get through it and it left her, we think.

    Are we right, what can we do. Please.

    • Hello, Sandra. First of all, please understand that I am not an expert on demonology, if there is such a thing. I do, however, have an understanding of spiritual things, and I will say that what you are telling me indeed sounds like demonic activity. You seem to believe that your daughter’s problems started when she met this man, whom she later married, and it is certainly possible that this is the case. I can’t say for sure if your daughter is possessed, but if she thinks she is, and if she is hissing like a snake and menstruating suddenly, then she may very well be possessed. Hissing like a snake isn’t of itself a sign of possession. Hissing like a snake when you don’t want to, however, can be, as a possessed person will do whatever the demon tells him to, whenever it tells him to.

      If your daughter is possessed, then listen very closely to what I am going to tell you, and please know that everything I am going to say will be in the Spirit of love. I tend to be very blunt in spiritual matters, because I don’t want there to be any misunderstanding about what I mean. Now, if your daughter is possessed, then the demon will have to be cast from her. You say a pastor prayed for your daughter, and the initial symptoms subsided. You may want to consider asking that same pastor to cast the demon from your daughter. Be forewarned, however, that not all pastors can cast out demons, because not all pastors are walking right with the Lord. In fact, I don’t know one pastor who can cast out demons. They may say they can, and they may think they can, but according to the Bible they cannot.

      That brings me to a very important point. You don’t need a pastor to cast the demon out of your daughter. You can cast the demon out yourself, in the name of Jesus, provided you are saved and are walking right with the Lord. By walking right, I don’t mean you don’t sin from time to time; we all sin from time to time. What I mean is, you are obeying the Lord Jesus: you avoid sinning, you sanctify yourself (set yourself apart) by avoiding sinful people (except to witness to them), sinful activities, and sinful places. And when you do sin, you confess that sin to the Lord Jesus (1 John 1:9), and try your level best not to do it again. My question, therefore, is are you saved? Is your husband saved? (When you said “we” I assume you mean your husband. Forgive me if I assumed incorrectly.) Does your daughter believe herself to be saved? This is an important question, because a Christian cannot be possessed.

      Now, when I say “Christian,” I mean someone who is trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ for his salvation: that is, someone who realized that they were a sinner in need of a Savior, understood that only the blood that the Lord Jesus shed on the cross at Calvary could wash them of their sins (Colossians 1:20, Hebrews 9:27, Revelation 5:9), repented for being a sinner and asked Jesus to forgive them for their sins (or at least confessed to Jesus that they were a sinner), and asked the Lord Jesus to be their Savior. A person, who has done this, has been washed clean of Original Sin (Romans 5:19) and their own past sins (Romans 3:25), and is now justified (no longer guilty of past sins) by God (Romans 5:1), and indwelt by the Holy Spirit. In other words, the Christian is already “possessed,” for lack of a better term, by God. Because 1 John 4:4 tells us that He that is in us (God) is greater than he that is in the world (Satan), then one possessed by God cannot be possessed by the devil. Therefore, if your daughter is possessed, then she was not saved. And, if you are not saved, then you cannot cast the demon from her.

      Let me also say at this point that the man to whom your daughter was married could not have cursed your daughter. He could have placed a hex or spell on your daughter, if that’s what you mean, and while under this spell, a demon could have attached himself to your daughter. I believe anxiety attacks are demonic, and for a person to have ten or more a day is, to me, a sign of a serious problem. You say you believe the demon left your daughter after you prayed together. If she really was possessed, then praying would not have been enough. The only way to be delivered from a demon is for that demon to be cast out in the name of Jesus. Isaiah 14:17 says that Satan does not open the house of his prisoners. Once he has you, his intention is to keep you, and ultimately to destroy you. You must understand this. So, if your daughter was possessed, then, unless the demon was cast out, by a Bible-believing Christian, in the name of Jesus, then she is still possessed.

      I want you to think about these things very carefully. I know how terrible it must be for you to see your daughter going through such torment. But be of good cheer: all is not lost. If you are really serious about saving your daughter–and I believe you are–then you must first save yourself: that is, if you are not saved. If you are saved, then please prayerfully continue to read the article on Generational Curses, for this is how Satan gains a doorway into our children’s lives. If you are saved, if you are true believers, then it is just possible that you are under a generational curse that has been passed on to your daughter. I truly believe that possession is a result of being under a generational curse. Understand that much of what we do is an abomination in the sight of God and will earn us a curse.

      Did you know, for example, that cigarette smoking is witchcraft? It most certainly is. So, if you are a smoker, then you are practicing witchcraft, in the form of sorcery. When you consider how prolific cigarette smoking is, then it should come as no surprise to you that the world is in the shape it is. Did you know that Roman Catholicism is idolatry, and that all Roman Catholics and their children are under a curse? I don’t mean to offensive, but that is just the plain truth. If you are a Roman Catholic, then your daughter is paying the penalty for that. And even if you are not a Roman Catholic, if any of your forefathers were Roman Catholic and did not repent of and renounce the Roman Catholic faith, then you are under a curse, and that curse has been passed on to your daughter. If there any drug use in your past (even if it was only once), then you have practiced witchcraft. Parents, as you know, don’t always tell their children everything. So, you will have to look at your own life, examine your own proclivities and issues, and reflect on what that means. If this or any of the things I mention in the article are true of you, then you are under a curse and will have to be delivered.

      As I write in the article, deliverance is a separate process from salvation: the former meaning being set free from a generational curse. Because it is such a serious issue, it is not something I would trust to just anyone. You are going to need discernment about whom to turn to. If you are saved, therefore, search your heart and ask yourself if you walking right with the Lord. Read the article through and find out if you or your parents did or are doing anything God hates. If it turns out that you are, then repent of those things INDIVIDUALLY and confess them outright to Jesus and ask His forgiveness. Then, trusting that He has forgiven you, cast out any demon that may be in you. (You will know which demon, depending on whatever issue you may have.) Then go and cast that demon out of your daughter. Because she is grown, you will have to get her permission to do so, which ought not be a problem, because she has already prayed with you about this, and obviously wants to be free. Once the demon is cast out, give your daughter the whole gospel message (which is in the FAQ) and ask your daughter to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior.

      The article “What Must I Do To Be Saved” has the Gospel message in an easy to read FAQ. You may want to go through it and see if what you believe lines up with it. It is 100% Bible. If it turns out that you are not saved, then pray in accordance with the guidelines in the FAQ, and ask the Lord Jesus Christ to wash you clean, and make Him your Savior. You will then be saved, and can claim your victory.

      I pray that I have been a help to you. I’ll be praying for the Lord to give you discernment and for Him to restrain Satan until you have had a chance to take action. I believe it was for this purpose that God sent you to this site, so, be encouraged. Please keep me in the loop about your progress. My contact information is on the webpage.

      God bless you and keep you.

      Tony

      • Thank you for any love shown. Can you please support that cigarette smoking (I know it is bad for us) is witchcraft via. God’s word. Thank you.

        • Hello, Lynne. I thought I did that in the article. Sorcery is the Greek word pharmakeia, which means a drug or poison, and, by extension, witchcraft (Strong’s Concordance of the Bible #5332). I have already given you the definition of a drug according to Oxford. The Websters Third International Dictionary (Unabridged) adds that a drug is a poison in that it alters the physiology of a person. Because cigarettes contain poisons, I don’t think you can get any plainer than that. A cigarette is a drug, and a drug, unless used in the preparation of medicine or in the treatment or cure of disease, is witchcraft.

  11. GOD bless YOU for this post. I went through a deliverance with a pastor and many spirits came out of me.

    I come from a very occultic family. My grand-parents were witches and in 2013, the Lord Jesus showed me that the majority of my family members are into witchcraft. It was only by grace that i was spared from that practice consciously but i do know that my spirit body was used by them somehow. I barely knew my father as my mother had me out of wedlock. But my mother married an embassador to India and he was in the occult. He died when i was 5 years old of cancer. Later, my mother became a rosicrucian and i read many books sent to me by them every month. My mother even taught me how to invoke the egyptian diety RA.

    We were also roman catholics and i did my 1st and 2nd confirmation in the catholic Church. Meanwhile my mother left the rosicrucian order BECAUSE she discovered that Jesus was not its God and she burned all the books and turned to Christ. I later married a “wonderful” man WHOM i discovered after 9 years together was a witch. We couldnt hâve children so WE opted for in vitro fertilization. The day i was implanted with the embryos, he beat me, which is something he had Never done before and i lost the pregnancy. I started DREAMING of demons surrounding me in the house to the point that i felt i would die If i stayed in that house. I left and went to stay with my mother. Soon, i found out he had gotten a woman pregnant and wanted a divorce.

    When i underwent my deliverance, the Spirit of John Paul 2 came out of me, as well as the spirit of the brand Versace, as i frequently wore their perfume for years, and the spirit of my ex husband and his father too. As i am writing this, he married his mistress, had 2 children by her and a few months ago was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

    The devil has been very busy in my life but i THank Jesus Alpha Omega for saving me out of the lion’s Den.

    The Holy Spirit told me last year that my ex husband would not live long unless he repented of his witchcraft. I reached out to him when i heard he was sick and ministered to him and told him to repent and Jesus would heal him but he mocked me and told me not to contact him again. The Holy Spirit then told me that Father had rejected him BECAUSE of his pride. He professes Christ with his mouth but NOT with his heart, refuses to give up his witchcraft and Will Die in his sins.

    Jesus died for His sheep and his sheep alone. NOT everyone who says Lord Lord Will be saved.

    • Thank you, Ninaha, for your incredible testimony. I’m so grateful that you were freed from bondage to Satan. With all that people are going through in their personal lives that testify that there is a spiritual war going on, it is amazing that anyone would gainsay the existence of generational curses. Demon possession is higher now that even during Jesus’ public ministry!

      You made a few very important points in your testimony that I must address for the edification of the Body of Christ. They don’t directly pertain to your personal life per se, but you did mention them. And they are extremely important. Therefore, I am planning to write a post based on your testimony in the very near future, God willing. I pray this meets with your approval.

      I hope others will be as blessed by your testimony as I was. God bless and keep you and yours, and I pray for your continued growth and sanctification in the Lord Jesus.

      • Absolutely. All to the glory of Christ. He paid the ultimate price. It is our duty and privilege to honor Him.

  12. As I was raised as a Roman Catholic this is Seriously Freaking me out, so exactly does one free oneself from the – Curse?

    • Hello, Lorraine.

      In order to free oneself from the curse of idolatry, which is Roman Catholicism, one must first be saved; as deliverance from a generational curse is only possible by confessing one’s sins to Jesus Christ, who is God Almighty, and, in order for Jesus to hear your prayer for deliverance, you must know Him as your Lord and Savior. Salvation is as simple as recognizing that you are a sinner worthy of death, but that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross and paid your death sentence. If you therefore accept what Jesus did for you, then just tell Him so, and ask Him to become your Savior and Lord. Now, being saved, 1 John 1:9 then applies to you, which says:

      “If we confess our sins, [Jesus] is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

      Go to Jesus in prayer and confess the sin of idolatry, asking for Jesus’ forgiveness. Then, while you are on your knees, confess every other sin you are guilty of, beginning with witchcraft: for Roman Catholicism is witchcraft. If you’ve read this entire post, then you know what other sins are considered abominations to God. Confess them also, and God will forgive you. As you break free of generational sin, the Holy Spirit will begin to reveal things in your daily life that are displeasing to Him, and you will be moved to confess them. This is the process of sanctification, which is separating oneself from sin and consecrating yourself to God.

      Ask God for wisdom in accordance with James 1:5, and He will give it to you, and help you to live a life unencumbered by the weight of sin: a life that brings honor and glory to our Lord Jesus Christ.

      God bless you Lorraine, and I’ll be praying for you.

      The Still Man

  13. thank you for this article, i’m currently going through a lot and it has helped explain what is happening to me. If you could please pray for me, that i may be set free by jesus and that gods will for my life and my families be done.

  14. hi, i went through this and i found out am guilty of some of the issues mentioned. And i have done as u said cos av had alot of challenge in my life as i write this i know what an feeling in my body. Sir i sent u a mail last month when i read this i dont know if u got it. I would want us to have a discussion. Pls

  15. Thank you all of this information. My mom and i have been discussing “a curse” on our family for a very long time. NOTHING ever goes right an the amount of illnesses between my mom and I is shocking!!
    I will be reading it all again and would like to start with my list personal confession list tonight. I really need to tackle this NOW — please pray for my family…
    Kim (Somerset West, South Africa)

    • You are welcome Kim. If you write those sins down and confess them one by one, each instance you can think of, asking the Lord Jesus to forgive you for them, and you mean it in your heart, you will be delivered, as I was. Jesus is not only willing, but He is also able. I will be praying for your victory. May the Good Lord Jesus shower His mercy on you, as you seek His face.

  16. If you really believe this shit, you are insane. There might be curses, but the God I serve and love isn’t going to punish an innocent child of someone for an evil act committed decades ago and if he does he can go to hell too.

    Fuck you

    • I’m so sorry that you’re so violently opposed to Scripture, or at least what I feel Scripture has shown me. Because you said you love and serve God, then I take it you consider yourself a Christian. If this is true, then you know in the Old Testament of the Bible God destroyed entire families: men, women, and yes, even children, because the father or mother of that family either started worshipping idols, or fell into idolatry by keeping things that were offered to idols. I feel God did this because He knew that the entire lineage of that family would be under a generational curse. And, since Jesus had not yet paid the blood at Calvary, there was no way for the family to be delivered of this curse. Eventually, all Israel would have been contaminated, and God wanted His people to sanctify themselves. We’re in the age of grace now, so God isn’t destroying families for committing abominations anymore. But he is allowing us to destroy ourselves through generational curses, and this includes our children.

      You must understand that if God tells us not to commit a particular sin or He will curse our children, it is not God who is punishing the child who inherits the curse, but the parents who brought the curse upon the child. I, too, love God and serve Him, but I also FEAR Him, and I take His warnings seriously. You think it insanity that God would allow a child to suffer for an ancestor’s sin. Well, why do you think so many children die in childbirth, have horrible birth defects, and are born with or develop in infancy or early childhood all kinds of diseases, some terminal, like cancer? Is it for anything that the child did? No. It is because of what Adam and Eve did over six thousand years ago. And God told Adam that the earth was cursed because of his sin (Genesis 3:17). If children are still being cursed and are dying because of something a man did several thousand years ago, why is it so difficult to believe that a child could suffer and possibly die even now because of something an ancestor did only a few decades ago?

      Understand that God is love, but God is also judgment. If you don’t fear God as much as you love Him, then you won’t take His commandments or His warnings seriously. And if you don’t take God seriously, then you will do those things that He commanded us not to do and bring God’s wrath upon you and your family. Those who believe that God is only love, don’t really know Him. True, God is Love. But my Bible also tells me that God is TERRIBLE.

      I have seven children, whom I love very much. So, I understand your anger. I have only attempted to explain something that has confused people for centuries: how a loving God can allow sickness, suffering, and death, and even allow children to suffer and die. If we understand the role our own rebellion plays in this, then we won’t be so quick to judge God, and will try to do those things that are pleasing in His sight and protect our families. Of course, rebellion isn’t always the cause. And when it isn’t, then we must simply trust that God’s will is being done, even when it wounds us. If we love and trust God, that’s all we can do.

      God bless you.

      • I used to be the biggest skeptic. I never believed anything until I saw it with my own eyes. I had major trust issues and used to make fun of Christians. But I was always searching for Truth. I search for truth everywhere. In other religions, in the bible, but I couldnt understand the bible. I kept reading and asking God to reveal to me Truth. In the meanwhile, I had interest in a wide variety of things, like astrology, ouija board, divinity.

        BUT God is faithful. He revealed to me his presence. In his presence I shaked, my knees became weak: the very things I used to make fun of others for. The Lord delivered me from many addictions. IN THE NAME OF JESUS. When God come into your life, when you decide to believe and ask for his presence, it doesn’t matter what anybody thinks. No one can can take that from you. I know, that I know, that I know, that He is real. The world knows and believe that evil exists. But they have a hard time believing that God is real. Spiritual warfare is real.

        Thank you for having the courage to speak about these topics that are so important in our daily walk with Him.

        • Praise God for you testimony! Indeed spiritual warfare is very real, which is why Satan works so hard to convince people it’s not. We are so used to suffering that we can’t imagine a life without it. Though physical suffering is a part of life, spiritual suffering doesn’t have to be. God intended for us to have a sound mind and to have inward joy, though we might have outward trials. I am so grateful that your search for truth ended at the foot of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who is Truth incarnate. Yes, God is real!

  17. God seriously bless you for this post!! I recently won my battle against homosexuality !! It was a thing that I never thought was possible but with Jesus’s help I am saved!!! I do believe there is a curse on my family and I feel as is God has called me to break the curse, so this post really helped me thank you ever so much

    • Praise God for your testimony, Oyin, and you are very welcome! I am so happy in my spirit to know that you prevailed over Satan in this and that you give Jesus the glory He so richly deserves. I will be praying for you as you intercede for your family in breaking the generational curse. Follow your calling!

  18. Hello Still Man,

    How am I to honor my father and mother while they are both malignant narcsissts?
    They choose to be their own devils, and love them self the most.
    That’s my biggest question.
    Cause their cause was to destroy me on any level, Why, just because they can……..
    The hole fake marriage was based on my mums selfishness, and i was the pawn….Dad knew and lets me pay for that till this day.
    In the mean time mum left the building, she released a death wish and she got it.
    He still calls her the love of his life, really, then why did he walk out of her deathbed? He knew she would get the next euthanasia shot within 15 min.
    No, he had to go home to feed the cats. Leaving me there on my own…….I stayed.
    Btw i never ever want euthanasia, death just takes its time. Unless there is great pain involved.

    How do I honor parents like that?
    I would love to hear you thoughts about it. if you fine with that.

    Thanks

    • I’m sorry you had to go through that, Colliefahn. There’s obviously a lot of pain there. God told us to honor our mother and father that our days be long upon the earth. Therefore, it’s not for their sake that we have to do it, but for ours. We are to do it, if we want to obey God. Besides that, God wants us to respect our parents because they are our parents, and if we want to be obedient, then we honor our parents whether they deserve it or not.

      I could share with you some things about my mother’s treatment of me that perhaps would make you very uncomfortable, but I won’t, since she is not here to defend herself. What I will say is that no matter what my mother did to me, I never disrespected her, not even once. I never raised my voice to her and I never cursed at her: not even when I was a grown man and she had the audacity to put her hands on me once. It’s not that I didn’t want to disrespect my mother, because at times I most certainly did. But, I knew in my heart that I had no business doing that. She was my mother.

      As a child, I knew that not only was it difficult to be a parent, but it was difficult to be an adult. So the fact that my mother clothed us and fed us everyday was a big deal to me, and something I respected her for, because I knew it wasn’t easy for a single mother to raise five children. So, I forgave her shortcomings, because I wasn’t at all sure that I could do any better. I just resolved that I would do my best to raise my children better than my mom raised us. And though I feel I have done this, I don’t dare take all of the credit. Jesus helped me out a lot–even when I didn’t know Him.

      Some would argue that my mother deserved to be disrespected. But even as an unsaved child and later an unsaved adult, I knew that, as children, we should respect our parents, because they brought us into the world. At the end of the day, its about respect. And, just like unconditional love, unconditional respect is given whether or not it is reciprocated, because that’s what Jesus expects of us.

      And there is something you haven’t considered: you see the errors that your parents made, which is a blessing, because you could have been OK with what your father did, rather than being upset about it. In short, you could have turned out just like your father (or mother) for good or bad. The blessing is that you didn’t, at least in that respect, and so you likely won’t make the same decision if, God forbid, you find yourself in the same predicament. You, therefore, are the savior of your family. You can redeem their flaws.

      In short, even if they did everything else wrong, your parents did one thing right: YOU. And you should be thankful for that!

      God bless you!

      • Hello Still Man,

        I had to let this sink in a while.
        Yes i did make a choice not to become like them.
        I think I am having a generational curse to.

        -My dad played with demon with a cassette tape, and yes he did here his father in law the next day on it.
        -When my mum died, he was asked what kind of cross he wanted with or without jesus on it, i thought my dad is against crosses, the answer is no thank you, nope the one with jesus on it!!!! I was blown away this was the guy that forbid my to wear a cross ever!! its still hanging in the house and the house was turned into a shrine.
        -He is putting more and satanic imagery on his walls…like apollyon-sun worship.
        -He cannot believe that his idols got this far via sodomy.& satan….all of them.
        -He is still talking to a spirit presumably my mother, and says its ok. I told its not cause i cast that demon out of my house in the name of jesus christ. (I was not a full believer then now i am)
        -He is still an inactive mormon. Still believes that stuff.
        -He still believes in astrale world(silver thread) and, such, I say its a physical world stay away any thing astrale.
        -He says he meditates like it is a good thing.

        But im staying in very bad financial stress i cannot seem to shake. And its killing me.
        I Will comeback

        • Hello, Stillman!!
          Its almost a year ago! How are you doing!

          The house in Germany was taken away by the bank, cause they cannot remember the deals we made with them.
          It hurts. The bank people are so cold harted, i hope this will never happen to them. We have 1 month to clear it out with no help what so ever, so its gonna be busy here.

          I know its just stuff, but I think, ever since I accepted Jesus Christ as my lord and saviour, I’m more under attack then before.
          I wonder why? Im not giving up on my self, and the Lord, though.
          My dad is still cruel but I know its his narcissism. Not me.

          I just discovered that the whole royal+entertainment industry is so unbelievable fake, all and mean, all are tranny’s.
          http://transvestigator.com/
          https://www.youtube.com/user/ApostleLauraLee/videos , i dont like her ministry(cause thats the only way you can get saved!) though but the research about the male and female body composure are great.
          But it made me feel lost, I no longer can enjoy a movie, tv serie, or music or sports(i never did) or the news, cause its all Twisted …. so twisted and fake.
          I realize more and more what i learned at school is fake as well. (not all of it, but i discovered a lot of lies.)

          I pray more and God has helped us several times. My partner got and unlimited contract even though he is considered “old”. People with his age usualy do not get these contracts. God also helps me with healing, If i ask for help i get these great thoughts with solutions. But the fallen ones make it hard. Each time when i start fixing things, things around me litterly start falling down or collapsing, i usually react on that: i will not give into this stuff, i fix that to and go back to what i was doing in the first place.

          I know I have to read more in the bible, still find that hard to do, I got one dutch version(many books with footnotes from a dutch bible society) and recently a king james english version, both are about 1959 translation.

          Any thought how i can feel less lost?
          Im a readying the correct bibles?
          Anything else?

          Be blessed
          Colliefann

          btw this email is a real, sorry about that.

          • Hey, Colliefann! It’s so good to hear from you! I’m so happy to hear that you are still hanging in there with the Lord Jesus. It’s actually normal that you are under attack since you got saved. You slipped through Satan’s fingers, and he is not happy about it. I saw that video about Michelle Obama being a transexual. But, don’t let that dismay you. Even if she is a transsexual and her husband gay (as the rumors go), they are still the President and First Lady, and the Bible says that we must honor the powers that be for they are of God. To resist them, therefore, is to resist God. Congratulations on your partner getting an unlimited contract. But, I would like to know why you refer to him as your partner and not husband. Is it because he is your partner and not your husband? If this is true, then you should know that God is not pleased with this arrangement, and it may block many blessings that should be coming your way. If you really want to please God, then you should seriously consider taking this to the next step. Your feeling lost could have a lot to do with this.

            Your servant,
            TSM

  19. As a parent I know there are gentle but firm ways of teaching children right from wrong. No truly loving God would ever CURSE the innocent children of “sinful” parents. A truly loving God would instead offer choices or different paths to choose.

    The quotes above are the very reason why I am now an ex-Christian. I believe that God is above much of what was written in the bible by Man’s hand and changed by MAN over the centuries deviating from anything remotely loving. The bible is so male oriented that very few female figures are mentioned and most of them are shown in a bad light.

    Millions have died through the centuries “by God’s will” that it makes me sick and also makes Christianity no better than those who believe in Allah as the one and only god when in fact God is known by many names as is the Goddess. I do not wish to demean anyone’s religious belief. But true spirituality is based in love and not curses or killing.

    And a true God is a loving God above all else, He surely would not be so evil as to curse innocent children and please don’t give me that malarky about children born in sin because it goes right back to a loving Holy Father. And a loving Holy Father is a Forgiving Holy Father. It’s a desecration and a form of betrayal to think of Him as being another way and the same goes for the Holy Mother/Goddess.

    I see evil only when mentioning many of the verses above. Are you sure they weren’t written by those who are evil. The Holy Father and Holy Mother are far from evil and yet the above write up is about as evil as Hitler was…or worse. Search your heart and soul, meditate, pray and truly think about how a Loving God as a loving Father would truly be. Reflect on something other than the bible. Reflect on the true Ho;y Beings. And you will truly come to know them by more than what is written.

    • I’m surprised, Delicia, that, as a witch, you would even acknowledge the existence of God, let alone call Him Holy. Is it not true that witches neither believe in God nor the devil, and, in fact, believe that what Christians call God is really a force, energy, or light? And, given that God and the devil are the personifications of good and bad, and witches believe in neither, but believe that good and bad are subjective…

      “The terms good or bad, valuable or worthless are not justified and at best are expressions of our own subjectivity” (Jan Van Helsing, “Secret Societies and Their Power in the Twentieth Century,” p. 340). [Boldface mine.]

      …it is strange, indeed, that you would use the terms “right and wrong.” What, then, could a witch possibly know about “teaching children right from wrong,” when right and wrong are based on good and bad, and witches believe that good and bad (and so right and wrong) are subjective?

      The last person I would take parenting advice from is a witch.

      By the way, as a witch, what or who is your authority for what is right and what is wrong, seeing that you have rejected God? And you have rejected the God of the Bible, for in another comment, you say, “We do not believe in Satan. We do not need an excuse with a name to justify our human wrongs. We accept and try to atone for our wrong doings NOW as we live our daily lives.” [Boldface mine.] This sounds really good from a purely human perspective, but the Bible says, “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 14:12). No one can atone for his own sins. Only the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross at Calvary will atone for our wrongs.

      When speaking of the millions who have died from “God’s will,” you no doubt are referring to the Crusades or the Inquisition. Any first-year history student will tell you that both the Crusades and the Inquistion were perpetrated by the Roman Catholic church, which is certainly not Christian, having, as they do, a form of righteousness, but denying the power thereof. You are not the first witch who has resorted to this tactic in order to condemn true Bible-believing Christianity, and you won’t be the last. Jesus said that many would come in His name saying, “I am Christ” and that they would deceive many. In that you allege Jesus Christ to have been responsible for the bloody Crusades and Inquistion, then, by your own testimony, you prove that He was absolutely right.

      You say “A true God is a loving God above all else” and “A loving Holy Father is a Forgiving Holy Father.” All this is true of God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ! Of Himself God said:

      “The Lord, the Lord God; merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth.
      “Keeping mercy for thousands, and forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin” (Exodus 34:6).

      As you can see, of Himself, God said that He is merciful and gracious above all else. So, by your own testimony, you have glorified God, even if that wasn’t your intention.

      Only after declaring Himself merciful and gracious, does God say,

      “And that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation” (Exodus 34:7).

      God is no more one-dimensional than any good parent. The same parent who can shower his children with love can–and should, when necessary–punish that child, as should any good parent. Look how incorrigible our children have become! That is a direct result of one-dimensional parenting. All sugar and no salt only works on corn flakes.

      The reason you are an ex-Christian has nothing to do with biblical quotes. You are an ex-Christian, because you were never a true born-again Christian to begin with:

      “They went out from us, but they were not of us, for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us; but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us” (1 John 2:19).

      Not everyone who says he is a Christian really is a Christian, and not everyone who says he was a Christian really was a Christian. Proof that this is true of you is that you know nothing of the true nature of God. But all this is a moot point seeing that, as a witch, you don’t believe in God. And the greatest proof of this is that you put God, in whom you do not believe, on the same level as your “Holy Mother/Goddess,” The Virgin Mary/Diana/Artemis/Ashtoreth/Shing-Moo/Ma Tsoopa/Isis/Bat/Hathor/Vesta/Rhea/Cebele/Ceres/Myrionymus/Semiramis/The Lady of Kingdoms (Isaiah 47:5) The Virgin Daughter of Babylon (Isaiah 47:1). The Holy Mother Goddess is a created thing–an idol, and your worship of this idol, will be your ultimate undoing.

      Regarding your belief that a loving God would not curse innocent children, I stand by the statement I made in the article. If we commit those sins that God hates and has told us in His book that He will curse us for, then it is we who have cursed our children, not God. If a man posts a sign on his property telling all that he will shoot anyone who trespasses unto his property, and we, as parents, know about this man and what he has posted and not only do not warn our children to stay off the man’s property, but set the example for them to follow, by trespassing on the man’s property ourselves, and, as a result, the man shoots our children, who is wrong: we or the man? This is the best I can do to understand the mind of a Holy God.

      Only the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross will redeem you and set you free from the curse of sin, the temporary penalty for sin: death and Hell, and the ultimate penalty for sin: The Lake of Fire. You are free, or course, to reject this sacrifice, but understand that in so doing, you are rejecting God’s mercy and are instead opting for justice. If you were innocent, then you should desire justice. But because you are guilty–and we all are–then you shouldn’t want justice, you should want mercy, all you can get.

  20. You have written caustically about Witchcraft but it is clear that you have not even learned what Witchcraft or any other good Pagan faith is about. A bit “Holier Than Thou” aren’t you? Before you judge…which by the way, you have no authority or right to do; you might want to know something about what you are writing.

    Cast a spell? Please, give me a break. Magick to a Pagan is nothing more than using intent, prayer, meditation, and energy for {hopefully} positive purposes for positive results and NEVER doe we EVER do anything without one’s permission or against one’s will. Like Christians, there are some hypocrites and baddies in every religion. In the Pagan religion one of the first tenants is “to harm none”. We Pagans are a peaceful, highly spiritual people who love our world, our Universe,and strive to make ourselves better, our world better, and to help whenever and wherever we can.

    We do not believe in Satan. We do not need an excuse with a name to justify our human wrongs. We accept and try to atone for our wrong doings NOW as we live our daily lives. Why? Because we know to become more spiritual and climb the ladder to higher spirituality we go through reincarnation and live more than one life time to aspire to a higher plane of spirituality. Reincarnation does not mean we will be reborn as an ant or turtle. We will be reborn as we were in this lifetime, as a human. We do not wait to the last minute to ask for forgiveness. We right our wrongs as soon as possible. We are sometimes called upon to heal others. or the earth, or animals. Sometimes we are called upon to teach, to help those in need, to nurture.

    We believe in the Lady; otherwise known as the Mother, the Goddess who is known by many names {depending upon geography…the same as God, here in the states Her name would be Mary, in Ireland Brigid, Egypt Isis or Bast. And SHE has been here since the very first man and cave paintings, ivory and bone carvings prove it. She was always faceless because She belonged and was revered by all.

    Perhaps you should expend some energy to learn about something before you cast the first stone. You really know nothing of the truth about Pagans yet you point your finger because {as the song goes}”the bible told me[YOU} so”. Please, we hold nothing against your beliefs so please do not denigrate ours. Thank you.

    • Hello, Delicia, and thank you very much for your comment. First off, let me say, for the record, that I have nothing personal against pagans. A person whom I love and respect just happens to be a pagan (though we haven’t talked in almost a decade since I accepted the Lord Jesus as my Savior). I don’t denigrate your religion: I merely speak the truth about it, when necessary, the major truth being it is diametrically opposed to the will of God. And how could it not be, denying, as you do, the existence of that Very God, The Father of all creation? Witchcraft “worships the creature more than the Creator.”

      I applaud your honesty, as I can verify that the things you say, concerning what pagans believe, are absolutely true. I especially appreciate your candor about the nature of the Goddess. I have said many times that the Roman Catholic Virgin Mary is, in fact, the goddess Semiramis, who was called many names, including Myrionymus, “The goddess with ten thousand names” (Hislop, 269). And you confirm my stated belief that all the goddess worshippers of the world will, at the Antichrist’s command, worship the goddess as the Virgin Mary, according to the Book of the Revelation, Chapter 13.

      You are, however, being less than candid when you imply that you merely “believe in the Lady” when in fact, as a pagan, you actually worship the Lady as Diana, as most of your sacred rites involve paying homage to this deity, if no more than invoking her name.

      You are mistaken to say that I know nothing about pagans. I was married to a witch: I know a great deal more than you think. I do not, however, know as much as you do, because, as you well know, it is impossible to know what a witch knows without being an initiated witch yourself and walking down the eight-fold path of enlightenment. Nevertheless, I know enough about what pagans believe to know that you are horribly deceived, if you truly believe that pagans only practice “white magic.”

      Anton Szandor LaVey, the late founder of the First Church of Satan, said this:

      “There is no such thing as a ‘white witch.’ White witchcraft is pure mythology. All witches are drawing on occultic power to do their bidding, and that power does not originate with God” (Satanic Bible).

      You may notice that LaVey acknowledged God in his statement, showing that though witches will not acknowledge the existence of God and Satan or good and evil, he knew very well that God exists. And please don’t try to distinguish Satanism from Witchcraft, because, their avowed allegiances and peculiar rites notwithstanding, Satanism is witchcraft at its core, the principle difference being whom the two religions acknowledge as their deity. Former witch, John Todd, said that Witchcraft, Satanism, Freemasonry, Mormonism, and every other occult practice and organization in the world are linked at the top. And that top is the Vatican.

      You say “pagans harm no one.” How, then, do you explain the “Warrior on the Block” rite? Manley C. Hall, himself a witch and 33rd degree Freemason, said this:

      “When the Mason learns that the Warrior on the Block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his craft. The seething energies of Lucifer are in his hands, and before he can move onward and upward, he must first prove that he can properly apply energy.” (“The Lost Keys of Freemasonry” p. 48.)

      As you may know, the Warrior on the Block rite is human sacrifice, according to John Todd. So, in order to “climb the ladder to higher spirituality,” as you say, at some point, the witch is required to take a human life and consume the essence of that life: human blood. This is the “proper application” of the energy you speak of. Witchcraft is neither the friend of God nor of man, and you would do well, Delicia, to get out of witchcraft as soon as you can before you find out at the Lord’s coming just how deceived you really are.

      There is a great deal more that I would like to say regarding your comment, as you made some very revealing statements. It would be too much, however, for a mere comment thread. What I will do, therefore, is address your claims in a post dedicated to that purpose, and, God willing, I will also do a podcast based on that post. Please check back from time to time and look for it, if you are so inclined.

      God bless you.

      • All goddesses are the same person: Semiramis, wife of Nimrod and first queen of ancient Babylon. So, whether you worship her (or it) as Isis, Diana, Vesta, or the Virgin Mary, it doesn’t matter. It all comes down to this: “The first religion is also the last religion, and it has been every religion in between in its various shapes and forms: it has never changed.”

  21. Hi I just want to say that was a lot of information but what would be the symptoms Way to remove a curse curse that u don’t know who put on u or why

    • Hi, Lydia.

      A curse that someone puts on you is really a demonic attack. If you are saved, then no such demonic attack will affect you. If you are not saved, such an attack will affect you. When I lived in Panama, I was surprised to see that in the markets, they sold all kinds of charms and such to ward off evil spirits and to protect a person from curses by their enemies. When I asked my friend who was her enemies, she made a gesture which suggested that everyone was her enemy. In other words, she had no idea who her enemy was.

      The enemy is Satan, and I hope you know who he is. It makes no difference who directed the curse at you. Ultimately, it was Satan who attacks us. The key is not to give him the ammunition to do it. If we are living in sin: that is, if we are either unsaved or saved but living in disobedience, then we give Satan the authorization to come into our lives.

      You must understand that 99.99% of the world is living under a curse due their own disobedience or the disobedience of an ancestor. This makes us easy prey to the many witches out there who want to destroy our lives.

      The important thing is to ask The Lord Jesus to forgive your sins and to make Him your Savior and Lord. This is the first and most important step. The next step is to confess every sin you know you’ve commited to Jesus. The last step is to live a holy and sanctified life. We do this by avoiding those activities, habits, people, and places that Jesus does not want us do and be around. This is extremely important, as it is in this way that Satan gets a toehold in our lives and, by our disobedience, makes us the enemy of God.

      Understand that if you are living right, a person can curse you until he is blue in the face, and it will have no effect. But, if we’re living in sin, a five-year-old child can curse you and destroy your life. In fact, witches start out very very young, according to ,John Todd. I can testify that many children are practicing witches. It gives them a feeling of power, as most children feel powerless.

      Get under the blood of Jesus now.

  22. Here is the problem with saying that god will curse a family for the sins of the father. My grandfather’s sin was abusing our father and then all four of us grandchildren. He finally died at 99 and now he is attached to me, he is an evil entity. So here he abused us all of our lives, literally killed his only child off (our father) and he could have cared less and he wanted all of us to die before him to, now that he is abusing me 50 times worse AFTER he died, now I am told I am being punished by god for what my grandfather did. Okay, so my grandfather abused me all of my life, now he is torturing me and destroying me in mass, piece by piece, all is taken from me and all I do is suffer and now I find out god wants this, god is letting my grandfather do this to me because my grandfather was evil and did bad stuff so now god is doing bad stuff to me too. It sounds to me like 1) there are evil entites, 2) there are no gods, and 3) evil entities prey on mass consciousness, on what the majority of people think and feel – so it becomes a mass idea or mass thoughts and the use that massive greed, anger, horrible things people think and do energy to be able to harm people after they die. It makes ZERO sense that god is not helping me and instead would abuse me because my grandfather abused me all my life. None of this makes any sense except that I know when evil people die they come right back and they take you out at the speed of light. That I found out.

    • Joan, I understand your predicament very well, but you must understand that a generational curse is the penalty when we commit a grievous sin against God. It does not matter whether we like it or not. The fact is that God has told us in no uncertain terms what He would do if we commit those sins that He really hates. If we choose to ignore Him, then it is we who have condemned our children. If we find out about generational curses and do nothing to break the cycle of destruction, then we have become a party to our own suffering. And this makes absolutely no sense at all. It is not true that God wants to punish us for our parents’ sins. If this were the case, He would not have warned us beforehand. God doesn’t want to punish us. That’s why He has told us in His Book what sins He really hates and the consequences for committing those sins. The problem is that very few of us take Him seriously.

      As for your grandfather tormenting you from the dead, biblically that is impossible, as Hebrews 9:27 says that once we die, we either go to Heaven or we go to Hell. If this is true—and I believe it is—then, what is likely tormenting you is not your grandfather, but the demon that possessed him. This demon will never leave you alone of his own accord. He will have to be made to leave. And he will only leave if Jesus makes him.

      God does not want to see you in this predicament, and that is no doubt how you ended up at my site: The Lord Jesus directed you to me. He wants to see you free. But whether you are ultimately set free will depend on what you are willing to believe. If you don’t believe in God, then you don’t believe in His Son. And if you don’t believe in His Son, then there is no help for you, because only Jesus, the Son of God, can set you free from the spiritual bondage you are in.

      Scripture tells us that Jesus’ death “destroyed him that had the power of death, that is, the devil.” Through the name of Jesus, we have power over the devil and the powers of darkness. We have only to apply the blood of Jesus to our lives to destroy the works of Satan and to be delivered from spiritual bondage.

      To do this, you must first hear the gospel of Jesus Christ: that is, that Jesus Christ was manifest in the flesh for the express purpose of dying on the cross and spilling His blood to pay for our sins. After Jesus died, He was taken down from the cross and buried in a tomb, and on the third day, Jesus rose from the dead. He ascended into Heaven where He now sits on the right hand of God the Father making intercession for all those who believe on Him. Jesus promised that all who believe on Him and trust in His Word would be saved. Saved from what? Hell and the Lake of fire.

      Next, you must believe the gospel and that you are a sinner and, as such, deserve to die and go to Hell. You must believe that the Lord Jesus, through His death and the shedding of His blood, paid the penalty for our sins and that through His resurrection, anyone who goes to Jesus will become a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:7) and be raised to new life as Jesus was raised from the dead. If you want to miss Hell and the Lake of Fire, then you must ask the Lord Jesus to save you and to become your Lord.

      Lastly, you must go to Jesus in prayer and simply asking Him to forgive you for being a sinner and to become your Savior and Lord. Once you do this, you will be saved, and it will then be possible to deliver you from the generational curse you are under.

      Deliverance is different from salvation in that salvation is deliverance from the power and affects of sin, while deliverance frees you from a generational curse. You cannot be delivered until and unless you are first saved.

      I feel your pain and I sympathize with your plight. Demonic torture is not a good thing. But there is help, if you would only believe. I was once under a generational curse just like you. This curse destroyed my birth family and would have destroyed my family had I not gotten saved and learned this information and gotten free and freed my family. Generational curses are real. The good news is that they are not irreversible. If you want to be free, you can be, if you would only believe that Jesus is Who He said He is and that He can do what He says He can do. I am praying that you will take the steps I suggest so that you can come out of bondage.

      • I feel that I am carrying a generational curse. But yet I am saved and believe with all my heart and soul that Jesus is my Lord and Savior. I was raised going to a Baptist church on Sundays, buy on weekdays I went to Catholic school. I now know Catholicism is a false religion and do not practice it. But at that same time my mom became hooked on drugs and playing with the occult. She had ouija board and this is the honest truth. Something came thru it and began to haunt our home. She passed away and I ended up having one tragedy after another. Finally I was saved and things began to work out again. But now they are going back. And getting worse. Even the small things. Is it possible that God is angry with me? Or is it possible that someone has cursed me? Or one of the evil spirits has somehow followed me for 30 years (thats when this started). I’m not losing my faith but I am starting to believe that maybe God doesn’t care as much about me as he once did. My brothers and sisters in Christ please pray for myself and my family. Peace unto all of you.

        • Hi, Christopher. I am a witness that a believing Christian can be under a generational curse, because getting saved will not deliver you from a generational curse. When you get saved, you don’t have to confess any sins, but in order to be delivered from a generational curse, you have to confess those generational sins. You admitted that you went to a Catholic school. Since Roman Catholicism is idolatry and witchcraft, then you are guilty of idolatry and witchcraft, and will have to confess the sin of going to a Catholic school. Since your mother did drugs and drug use is sorcery, which is witchcraft, you will have to confess this sin. Playing with the occult is outright witchcraft, so you will have to confess this sin too.

          Besides this, you will have to confess your personal sins, as anyone under a generational curse is living in sin of some nature. Because we are a sinful generation, you may not know how bad you are sinning.

          God still cares for you. The Bible says that the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. God called you to salvation, so He does not regret that decision. And if He didn’t care for you, He would not have directed you to this website. Just follow His leading. If you read the article thoroughly, and follow the steps I outline, you will be set free. God bless you.

  23. Greetings,

    Are there times when a generational curse will skip over a generation. Meaning let’s say generation 2-6 is affected be the sins of the fathers, generation 7 is skipped over and then the curse resumes with 8 and so forth?

    • I believe that there were times that a generational curse would skip over a generation. While both Exodus 20:5 and 34:7 say that God will curse a person’s descendants “until the third and fourth generational,” Exodus 34:7 gives us a little more insight. Exodus 34:7 says that God “by no means clear the guilty.” I believe what God is saying here is that He would not completely free a family from the curse, but would allow it to skip a generation, which is why God says that He would curse a family until the third and fourth generation, rather than unto the third or unto the fourth generation. I believe that at that time God would not completely free a family from the curse, but allow it to skip a generation, because Jesus had not yet paid the blood for all sin at Calvary. What God would do is allow the curse to skip one generation, if someone in the family humbled himself before God and confessed the sins of the family (Daniel 9:3-20).

      After Jesus paid the blood, a person could confess those sins that brought on the curse (1 John 1:9), and Jesus would take the curse off the family completely. Many believe that 1 John 1:9 is talking about salvation, but it is not, because we don’t have to confess any sins to get saved. 1 John 1:9, then, is not talking about salvation, but about deliverance. Since Jesus paid the blood, a person can confess generational sins, and Jesus will forgive that family and lift the curse. It is therefore no longer necessary, in my view, for God to allow the curse to skip a generation.

  24. Hi, I have read this article and have issues as some others have had. I have read/studied many perspectives on generational curses but I always get stuck that everyone who teaches this is always using the Exodus scriptures but give ZERO examples in the new testament. You’ve used the John scripture of ‘confess your sins’ but I don’t see ANY example of Jesus dealing with deliverance of generational curses. Using an OT scripture that was part of the law given to the Israelites and applying it to NT believers is troubling. There has to be context and the context of The Exodus scriptures doesn’t apply to NT blood bought believers does it? I find this fear based teaching, somewhat Christian Superstition… what if I don’t confess things I don’t know… Are we then doomed? Is this the God of love we believe in? If your going to use an OT scripture, how about “The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin” (Deut. 24:16). This completely refutes what you are saying. Is God schizophrenic? I am not trying to argue, just gain understanding b/c there is a lot of teaching on this that doesn’t line up with the ‘grace’ of our Father in the NT. The Prodigal Son parable indicates our Father ‘runs to us with a ring & a robe’… no mention of a ceremony after that to deal with the son’s sin… He already forgave him and accepted him back. Generational Curse teaching conflicts with this doesn’t it?
    Thanks

    • Hello, Neo. Actually, when Jesus healed and cast demons out of people, He was dealing with generational sin, as Israel had been in apostasy for over 430 years and was guilty of practicing witchcraft, human sacrifice, and idolatry. This is why the Gospels are full of cases of demon possession and people with strange diseases. Before Israel turned its back on God, only the heathen nations had those problems. But, as Jesus had not yet paid the blood at Calvary, there was no need for anyone to confess sins. As for grace, recall that almost every time Jesus healed someone, He either said that their faith had “made them whole,” or He asked them beforehand,”Believest thou that I am able to do this?” Remember that the Scripture says that the measure of grace that is given us is proportionate to the level of faith we have. So, grace came even before the Cross in the form of healings and deliverance (because faith came before the Cross).

      As for using OT Scripture, you must understand that while we are under a generational curse–saved or not–we are living in sin. And while we are living in sin, we are under the Law of sin and death and not under the law of the Spirit of God (grace). Scripture says “The sting of sin is death, and the strength of sin is the Law. When we confess those sins, grace is applied to our generational sin and we are delivered. You must understand that according to Romans 3:25, when we are saved, we receive remission only for Original Sin and those sins that we committed before we got saved:

      “God hath set forth [Jesus] to be a propitiation (substitute) through faith in His blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God.”

      1 John 1:8-9 makes it clear that sins committed after conversion (and generational sin) must be confessed:

      “If we say that we have no sin (do not sin), we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”
      “[But] If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

      All means all; Therefore, if we confess generational sin, we will be forgiven generational sin. Because generational sin is a special category of sin which God calls abomination, this sin is not forgiven when we get saved. Regarding grace, because God forgives us and allows us to be saved even if we have generational sin in our lives, then this is the grace of which you speak.

      Not everyone can receive this teaching, for it is for those who are ready for “strong meat” and who, “through reason of use, have had their senses exercised to discern good from evil.” (Hebrews 5:14). That is why this ministry exists.

  25. I have read some of this before but never took them to the heart I am doing that now taking these things to the heart to tell others hope you do not mind if I use some of you quotes on my face book page.

    • No, I don’t mind at all, Bill. By all means share them wherever you can. I want to see as many people as possible set free. God bless you!
      –TSM

      • My dear thank you so much for this information!! It was the reminder and support I needed to be freed. I have shared it with my family amd friends in hope for deliverance. The way how the world is set up today, if we don’t stay in tone with God and people of wisdom and faith in God, our purpose in life on earth will not be accomplished. God bless and keep you always because you’re a vessel of change. Thank you.

        • You are so very welcome, Shannelle! I’m grateful you found the information helpful and supportive. Thank you for your blessing, and may the Lord Jesus richly bless you and yours also.

  26. You Christians have long been deceived. The god you worship is Samael, god of the blind, Saklas, the fool, Yaldabaoth, the demiurge, the half-maker. He is a pretender, filled with envy and arrogant pride. He rules over humanity with an iron fist, and demands worship and adoration from those he likes to call his “sheep.”

    But there is only one Father: the Ineffable Father of the Silence. He does not demand anything of his children. And as any truly loving parent knows, you may guide your offspring with gentle words and actions from your heart, but the moment you use force or fear, even if it achieves immediate results, they have learned nothing of their own free will. Instead, they have become slaves to your will, coerced to do your bidding, or else they face your wrath.

    This is not a nurturing way to grow balanced, loving souls. It is a way to produce fear-filled, hateful people.

    And that is precisely what the so-called “Christian god” is. After all, we were made in his image. Look around you. How much blood has been shed for his perverse enjoyment?

    Has it really changed things for the better? I think not. But I tell you now that his days are numbered, along with his bad cop buddy who rules over the bottomless pit and all of his boot-licking cronies, too. They are two sides of the same twisted coin, god and satan are.

    Wake up from your ignorant slumber and realize that your god is a tyrant. His reign is coming swiftly to its logical conclusion however. The Incorruptible Ones, the Immovable Race, the true Elect have returned. And justice is coming.

    Mark my words well Still Man: the ones you “Christians” tried to destroy two thousand years ago are back, and a long overdue reckoning is close at hand.

    • The only reckoning at hand is the Judgment Seat of Christ, my friend; and, by the looks of it, you will be found lacking at said Judgment. Please make your peace with the Lord Jesus while there is still time. The day is far spent.

  27. Hello
    I’ve been scouring the internet. My son was raised in a Christian home and I believe he’s born again. However, he came out as a gay when he was 16. He is 25 now. I feel he has a curse of perversion on himself. How can I remove that curse, and free him from homosexuality, without his cooperation? He has twisted interpretations of scripture. He thinks it’s ME that’s deceived.

    Can I forcefully remove the curse? Jesus commanded demons out of people, didn’t he?

    Thanks
    John

    • Hi, John. Unfortunately, because he is a grown man, your son will have to confess the sin of homosexuality himself in order to be delivered: you cannot do it for him.

    • Hi I am a Minister of the Gospel and I was born under a generational curse ,Witchcraft to be exact.I found out doing a deliverance of my daughter of which the demon spirit gave me much information. That to be totally delivered the Demon(s) have to be cast out. There are demons connected to the sin of the curse. And they have to be removed.

      • Generational curses do not always result in demon possession. Most people under a curse are merely, as the Bible puts it, “troubled” by a demon (also called by some demonic obsession). When possession is the case, casting out the demon is a good first step; but, it is not a permanent solution. If the sin is not confessed, then one will not be completely delivered. The demon can always come back.

        Recall that King Saul was often plagued by an evil spirit sent to him by God because Saul had rebelled against Him. Saul never repented (confessed his sin to God), and so the spirit visited him continuously (1 Samuel 16:23). Though he acknowledged his sin to the prophet Samuel, Saul never truly repented, evidenced by the fact that he eventually sought the advice of a witch, a practice forbidden by God.

        Jesus also said that when a demon is cast from a person it will wander the dry places searching for a new host and, finding none, return to the person from whom it was cast. Finding the person swept clean, Jesus said, the spirit would go and return with seven more spirits worse then he, and the person would end up worse than before. If however, the person confesses the sin that caused him to be cursed in the first place, then the demon would have no right to attach himself to or possess that person again, because Jesus would have forgiven that sin and removed the curse (1 John 1:9). Confession of sin, therefore, is absolutely necessary for complete deliverance.

  28. This is a great article except for the criticisms of the Roman Catholic Church. These criticisms are based on the misconceptions that protestants have that are based on ignorance about the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church was started by Jesus Christ himself and is 2000 years old. There were no protestant churches until Martin Luther (a Catholic priest) sparked the reformation in 1517. If you can criticize Jehova’s Witness and Mormonism who came about in the 1800s, you should be able to see the errors in the protestant movement (who’s identity is based on “protesting” the church of Christ rather than being based on Christ).

    • Unfortunately, Michael, my observations are not based on misconceptions, but on documented fact, the first fact being that the Roman Catholic church was not founded by Jesus Christ, as they tell you, but on the Rock Himself. The Roman Catholic church was, in fact, founded by the Roman Emperor Constantine, who was a pagan sun worshipper. Hence the name ROMAN Catholic. Your own Council of Trent places true Bible-believing Christians under 125 anathemas, or curses, for adhering to the doctrines of Christ and has, does, and always will persecute and murder true Christians whenever and wherever it can. Jesus Christ commanded us to love our enemies. Why, then, does the Romish church hate and persecute Protestants if it is founded on Jesus Christ himself? Why does your pope call himself “Holy Father,” a name reserved only for God the Father Himself? Because the Roman Catholic church is not, has never been, and will never be founded on Jesus Christ and, in fact, blasphemes the Lord Jesus and changes the pure Gospel of Reconciliation into an impure gospel of irreconcilable wrath.

  29. Dear stillman,
    My name is tanner and I’ve been a believer all my life. I grew up in a hypocritical/religious spirit household of a perverted form of Christianity but nonetheless Jesus based. I’ve always loved Jesus and have broken free from a lot of things over the years..however God led me to this site and I believe it is you who cba help me answer these questions . My dad is heavily involved in drug addict,pills,alcoholic,narsisst, cheat,etc te list goes on. My dads dad was an abusive person etc and alcoholic the list also goes on. My mother was the result of a rape . Her real mother was raped by a 33rd degree mason and my moms real brothers where both “conviently drowned to death; my mom was also immediately given up for adoption and not given my moms real moms last name of lindsley but given and adopted last name of George. My moms step dad then died when she was 16. (A God fearing man though) my mother has clearly suffered from generational curses , twisted spine ,convulsions ,fear , panic attacks etc, fractured,split perpsnalities aka demonic alter egos. Jezebel spirit etc And she is also very naive but she loves God with all she is . A pure heart. I along with my other two brothers grew up heavily with demonic activity. Paranormal,demonic dreams ,astral projection ,wolf dreams, physical attacks manifestations etc. obviously generational garbage. Very afflicted with fear self esteem issues ,sexual spirits of lust,self hatred,self pity,selfishness ,panic attacks etc. anger rage victim spirit and more. Physic abilities etc . I know the Lord has told me I am of the tribe of Judah but also I’ve felt cursed my whole life. I’ve broken a lot off of my life and am living as up rightly as possible with Christ along with my wife and 8 month old but I’ve always had massive depression etc pain painful flash backs etc. I know it’s all a scheme of hell but I need your insight as to how to deal with all this. I want to be as pure as I can for the Lord Jesus Christ and go forth as a new pure grafted vine of generations for my family line . If I may ask you only if you feel led by God though,would you please ask for a word of knowledge or wisdom regarding my specific situation. Amongst all the curses I feel there are porphets and leaders for God in my family including my brothers but want to walk that out fully in the Lord and our lives . Thank you and God bless you a thousand fold for this article dear brother

    • God bless you, brother Tanner, for your testimony, and for having the courage to give it. I praise God that you realize that generational curses are real and are responsible for much of the grief that Christians and non-Christians alike suffer on a daily basis. The good news is that you, like I was, can be delivered from this curse if you would confess those generational sins to the Lord Jesus. I won’t go further into it at this moment, but will do what you ask and take it to the Lord Jesus and ask Him for a word of wisdom and get back to you on this thread, or privately, if you choose. Please allow me a few days to pray about this. Thank you.

      Your servant,
      TSM

    • Hi, again, Tanner. It’s obviously taken me a lot longer than a few days to get back with you. I’m sorry about that, but I’ve been extremely busy. I’m looking at your comment now and, if Satan doesn’t hinder me, I’ll get a response to you by the end of the week of July 25, 2016. Please pray for me.

      God bless you.
      TSM

    • Hello, Tanner.

      Please forgive me for taking so long (four months) to answer your comment, and I thank you for being so patient.

      You have dissected your family’s spiritual history very well; and this is very fortunate, because, since a generational curse is grounded in sin, this sin must be repented of and confessed if you want to be freed from it. Because you know your family’s spiritual history so well, you don’t have to guess what your ancestors were or are guilty of. This will make it easier for you to confess the sins they are were/are guilty of.

      I agree that your family is suffering from a number of generational curses not the least of which is witchcraft and occult activity. Exodus 20:5 makes it clear that God will punish the descendants of one who commits an abominable sin against Him with the very sin(s) that person is guilty of. One can verify this by comparing his sins with his parents’ sins.

      As I point out in the article, God cursed King David’s children with the sins David was guilty of: namely, sexual sin, idolatry, and murder. If you take a look at your family’s problems, you will see that they are indeed generational.

      Your grandmother’s rape was not without spiritual consequences, as you seem to be aware of, and is at least one cause of some of the problems your mom suffers from, especially the problem of demonic alter egos and fear, and panic attacks. The spiritual consequences of rape is something hardly anyone talks about, but is very real and devastating. Many of your battles are probably a result of this, especially because her rapist was a Freemason, to say nothing of his family history.

      The occult activity that you and your brothers were involved in, as you know, is Witchcraft, according to Leviticus 18 and Deuteronomy 18, and is an abomination to the Lord Jesus. You said that your mom’s natural mother’s rapist (i.e. your grandfather) was a Freemason. As Freemasonry is witchcraft and idolatry, according to the Bible, it would follow that you and your brothers have been cursed with the sins of witchcraft and idolatry. This explains the occult activity in which you participated.

      But, more than this, Freemasonry is murder, at least at the 33rd degree. Author Manly P. Hall, a 33rd degree Freemason and former president of the Theosophical Society, said that the “Warrior on the Block” rite is a part of Freemasonry, and former witch John Todd said that the Warrior on the Block rite is found in Witchcraft as well as at the 33rd degree of Freemasonry. Todd also said that the Warrior on the Block rite involves human sacrifice, which is ritualistic occult murder. If my understanding is correct, there are two versions of the 33rd degree: the honorary and the meritorious. The meritorious degree is awarded to those who have made a meritorious contribution to the “Great Work” (the New World Order), while the honorary degree is something like the honorary doctorate colleges award without a person actually having completed the degree work. The Warrior on the Block rite, if Todd can be believed, would, then, be found in the meritorious degree. If your natural grandfather (your mom’s mom’s rapist) held the meritorious degree, then you would want to consider what this may entail. Murder, like witchcraft and sexual sin, is an abomination to God and will earn you a generational curse. You seem to imply that your mom’s natural brothers died under questionable circumstances. If they were, in fact, murdered, then this could have been a manifestation of a generational curse.

      Drug abuse is witchcraft, and, seeing that your father is a drug addict, then you were probably cursed with the sin of witchcraft, which again accounts for you and your brothers’ forays into the occult. All the demonic activity you mention is part and parcel of the generational curses you inherited, as these curses are executed by demons under Satan’s control. This is why you’ve felt cursed all your life. I believe the depression you deal with is also a part of this curse.

      I believe that you love the Lord and want to serve Him with a true heart. But, to do this, you will have to come out from under the curses you are under; for, while you are under these curses, you are in bondage to Satan, and will, therefore not be able to fully enjoy the Lord Jesus purchased for you with His own blood. But, worse than this, your little child will also grow up under the same curse you did, and will inherit the same problems your family has suffered from. This would be a terrible legacy to pass on to your child. I was in the same situation years ago, and it was this fear more than anything else that moved me to look into generational curses and to seek to break free from the curses I was under.

      You must understand that generational curses are caused by abominable sin of the type God outlines in Exodus 20 and 34, Leviticus 18 and 19, and Deuteronomy 18. What makes these sins worse than merely lying or stealing is that they are abominable sins: that is, sins that God really hates. Because they are so deplorable to God, these sins must be confessed for the blood of Jesus to be applied to them.

      But, before you do anything, make sure you have truly made Jesus your personal Savior. You said that you grew up with a perverted form of Christianity, but that it was “Jesus based.” Understand that if your Christianity was perverted, then your Jesus was too. The Bible teaches that there is “another Jesus” (2 Corinthians 11:4), which means that there is another Christianity (in fact, there are several). So, while you love Jesus, it is possible that you love the “other Jesus,” rather than the true Jesus.

      This is nothing strange, and happens quite often. I, for example, always considered myself a Christian, because I grew up in a house where we went to church, and there was a Bible on the living room coffee table. But, I never really learned anything about Jesus until I sought Him out for myself when I was forty-five years old. Before then, all I knew about Jesus was that His mother was a virgin, He was born in a manger, and He died nailed to a cross. I had no idea Who He is, Why He came, why He died, and, most importantly, why I needed Him. In other words, I didn’t really know Jesus, because I had never heard the Gospel. Without hearing the Gospel, believing the Gospel, and accepting Jesus as your personal Savior, there can be no true salvation.

      So, Tanner, I pray you will consider what I have said here and discuss it with your mother and brothers. If you really love Jesus and want to please Him, then you will know what to do. You have absolutely nothing to lose–but problems–and everything to gain.

      Your servant in Christ Jesus,

      TSM

  30. You completely lost me with “It happened with the last presidential election.” White Supremacist Excuse For A Christian.
    Do you know who the most Satanic presidents were? Bush and Reagan.
    In fact, the day Reagan was elected, the number 666 came out in the lottery where I live. Reagan engaged in human sacrifice- killing and jailing millions of Americans, getting them addicted to crack and sentencing the rest for minor felonies. Bush staged a bogus war, had already propped up Sadam Hussein only to take him down, and was responsible for 9/11.
    Why I can’t be a Christian. Your ugly, white stringy haired, inaccurate racist Jesus and your horrible racist politics. You bring your Satanic white supremacy into everythng.

    • If you weren’t so angry, you would have considered the context in which I spoke about the “last election.” I was talking about how people were mesmerized by Barack Obama, this junior senator who came out of nowhere and became President seemingly overnight. Though I didn’t agree with it, I can understand how many blacks voted for Obama. What is inexplicable, however, is why many whites voted for him. None of those whites with whom I spoke could give a sensible reason for why they were voting for him. The consensus was, “He gives me hope.” In my opinion, there was something else at work that prompted this wave of support for a man with very little political or worldly experience to become the head of the most influential nation in the world and everyone is cool with it. This happened in the Bible, and witchcraft was involved. Don’t be so naive as to think it can’t and doesn’t happen today. There’s nothing new under the sun.

      And the reason why you can’t, or rather, won’t become a Christian is because you are determined to hate white people and you know that Jesus wants us to forgive those who have wronged us. This is something you just can’t do. So, you reject Jesus on a technicality: his skin color, his looks, and the texture of his hair. That foolishness will keep you out of Heaven. And, by the way, I’m black. If you weren’t so blind with racial hatred, you could have easily figured that out or have simply gone to the About page. C’mon now, who’s really the racist?

      TSM

      • The most hidden agenda ever is through the use of the words white and black. No one is …. Melanin is red brown and yellow. It is occultic to use these labels and shaming. Idolatry for sure. I sure wish this was known.

        • I know where you’re coming from and I agree: the devil does, in fact, use language to his advantage by changing the meaning of words and using twilight language and symbolic (occult) language instead of being precise (and concise). Yes, this is dangerous.

  31. ((((((((((((((((That’s because Freemasonry is witchcraft, and God has cursed succeeding generations with this abomination. If you or any of your ancestors were or are involved in Freemasonry, you are under a curse and so are your descendants. If you are a Christian, this will affect your Christian walk in some way. You must be delivered. This sin must be confessed.)))))))))))))))
    Hi,
    My spouse’s family has freemasonry involvement. His mom was in Eastern Star, and her dad was a 33rd degree Freemason, and my spouse’s Father was a 33rd degree Freemason and he took my husband and got him initiated into Demolay at 9 or 10 and at 18 into 32nd degree Freemasonry. My husband’s brother was not put into these organizations but he was sexually assaulted as a child and is now living as a Homosexual.
    My son was sexually assaulted as well, at 16. My spouse made several mistakes that played into this. He continues to make mistakes that cause our family harm and chalks it all up to coincidence. I have horrible health problems that began with allergies and progressed to chemical sensitivity or MCS and my son deals with schizophrenia, learning disorders, autism, intellectual disability etc.
    My husband’s mother had bleeding in her mid 40’s which led to a full blown hysterectomy which destroyed her vivacious personality completely. I read that the oaths her husband took during the initiation led to this malady.
    My spouse appears unscathed in this and does not have any serious health issues and neither did his dad. Does this often play out like this? The spouse is unaffected physically and the rest of the family suffers physically. I feel very angry to have married into a family with this curse of Freemasonry. We have been renouncing and we will continue to but I feel angry at how these curses have effected my son and myself. Do people often get better physically as they renounce? I heard that some people have. Thanks for listening. I like your blog.

    • Freemasonry is no joke. It will mess your life and family up like few other things can.

      Yes, Lauren, I have heard of instances where demonic activity seems to center around an individual, but that individual is not directly affected by it. This seems to be especially true in cases where some sort of pact is made such as a blood oath (i.e. Freemasonry). Because I address these issues from a purely biblical perspective rather than as an insider, my experience is limited. What I will say, however, is that you have not said whether you are a Christian or not. I can tell you that once you are under the blood of Jesus, a lot of things may clear up for you. That was my experience. I was myself a Freemason before I got saved and was also under a generational curse and had a lot of health problems because of it. My children also had a lot of problems. Once I got saved, though, and started confessing those sins to the Lord Jesus, most of my health problems went away, as did my daughter’s epilepsy. Eleven years later, my daughter is still epilepsy-free, and the health problems I had at the time are gone and have not returned.

      What I’m trying to say is that people do generally get better when they confess sins to the Lord Jesus and renounce, not just renounce. Because your problems were caused by sin, then the only way fix these problems is to confess those sins to the Lord Jesus (after making Him your Savior). The Bible says that “godly sorrow leads to repentance” and repentance leads to confession. Of course you want things to get better, but you should also want to please God. In fact, this should be your driving motivation to confess sins (after making Jesus your Savior, if you have not yet). I believe that God allows a lot of things to happen to us to get our attention (i.e. sickness, spiritual problems, etc.) so that we will seek His face and ask His forgiveness. Please think about this and do what the Spirit leads you to do.

      I’m glad you like the blog. God bless you and keep in touch.

  32. Why are you quoting John Todd he was not Christian, Satan in disguise. Read his biography.

    • Hi, Gretchen. Great question!

      Whether Todd was truly a born-again Christian, I cannot say; and I agree that he made some dubious claims. But John Todd did say some things that were nonetheless very true, especially regarding occultism in regard to Christianity. The fully informed Christian mustn’t limit himself to those who share our beliefs. You can learn a lot about the enemy from the enemy himself. The Bible is clear when it says that the “whole world lieth in wickedness,” and that Satan is the “god of this world.” Though we, as Christians, are not a part of this world, we do live in this world. So, in order to better understand the world, which is necessary to both better lead the lost to Jesus and to avoid being deceived ouselves, it is at times necessary to listen to the world.

      John Todd claimed to be a former Illuminati witch, but he never tied the Illuminati to the Roman Catholic church: something he definitely would have done if he really were 1. a former Illuminati witch, 2. a born again Christian, and 3. sworn to tell the truth and reveal everything he knew as a former witch and born-again Christian. I’ve been neither a witch nor a Roman Catholic, yet I know from secular sources that Illuminism is Jesuitism, for secular sources say that Ignatius Loyala, the founder of the Jesuit Order, belonged to a group in Spain calling itself the Alumbrados, which means “Illumined Ones.” Loyola and his group were incorporated into the Roman Catholic church and renamed The Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) and assigned the mission of destroying the Protestant Reformation–through subtlety, when possible, and by other means, when necessary.

      Todd said that all the occult groups of the world including Witchcraft, the Freemasons, the Mormons, are all tied at the top, but he never stated who that “top” was. I know from the Bible that that top is the Pope of Rome, because the Bible calls the Roman Catholic church “Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of harlots and abominations of the earth.” A harlot in the biblical sense is a false religion, and an abomination is anything that God hates, especially idolatry and occultism. Roman Catholicism is a false religion, idolatry, and occultism. The Roman Catholic church calls itself the “Mother of all churches” (Council of Trent). All means all, so, given that Witchcraft and Freemasonry are religions, then the Roman Catholic church, by its own admission, is the “Mother” of Witchcraft and Freemasonry, as well as Hinduism, Buddhism, and all systems of occultism. This agrees with the Bible. If Todd was who he says he was, why did he never say this? Strange.

      Todd said some very “illuminating” things, nonetheless. For instance, Todd was the only person I have ever heard–Christian or otherwise–say that the “Warrior on the Block” rite from Freemasonry, mentioned by 33rd degree Freemason, occultist, and author Manly P. Hall, in his book, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, is also found in Witchcraft and that it is actually human sacrifice. This is huge, because the Warrior on the Block, according to Todd, is found in the 33rd degree of Freemasonry. If this is true, then, it means that Freemasonry, like Witchcraft, practices human sacrifice, making it not only occultism and idolatry, but full-blown witchcraft, offering blood sacrifices. It also further proves that Freemasonry, far from being the “handmaiden of Christianity” as it claims, is actually a Mystery Religion, as the Mystery Religion of ancient Babylon founded by Nimrod and Semiramis, practiced human sacrifice. Christians, who happen to be Freemasons and Christians who have family members and friends who are Freemasons need to know this.

      So, when we are searching for the truth, we need to do as researcher William Cooper always said: “Read everything, listen to everyone, but don’t believe anything unless you can prove it with your own research.” I took Cooper at his word and came to the conclusion that Cooper was himself either incredibly deceived or a willing dupe in the Roman Catholic Takeover of America.

      (Cooper, by the way, called himself a Christian fighting the New World Order and he had much knowledge of the Mystery Religion of ancient Babylon, but he also conveniently neglected to tie the New World Order to the Roman Catholic church, a conclusion any high school student with the proper resources and a little common sense would have come to. He even went so far as to outright say ‘It’s not the Catholics,’ and that the Roman Catholic church was only part of the plan. In fact, Cooper blamed everything on the international bankers and the “global elite, though his research suggested far more.)

      Lastly, with regard to generational curses, Todd was the only person I ever heard say that a person could not be delivered from a generational curse until Jesus “paid the blood” at Calvary, which is absolutely true, whether Todd got it by revelation or borrowed it from a true believer.

  33. I AM 48 years and I have been living in South Africa for 23 years but have nothing to show for it and I request if you can help me.
    I do not want money magic because i know that I AM WELL BLESSED but I wonder where this bad luck is coming from. Please get back to me and let me know if anything positive can be done for me. I live in Johannesburg with my wife and kids even though I have not paid a dime for my wife dowry because of the hard times. if you see me, you will think that I have it all but I am empty as I write you now.
    i need your help if you can. Love and Light,
    Emmanuel

    • Emmanuel, the Lord Jesus said that we should “seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,” and that after we have done that, then all else would be added unto us. “All else” includes dowries. If the will of God is for you to pay your wife’s dowry, then He will see to it that you can do that. But the first step in doing the will of God is to first get to know Him through the Lord Jesus, who said,” I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE; no man cometh unto the Father but by me” (John 14:6).

      Jesus said, “What profiteth a man if he were to gain the whole world, but lose his soul?” If you were to pay your wife’s dowry, but your soul wind up in Hell, you would be the most miserable person in this life and the next. As a responsible man (and I believe you to be, because you are concerned about your wife’s dowry), you know that we have to have priorities. You have seemingly made your wife’s dowry your highest priority, which, while commendable, is not prudent. Your first priority should be your immortal soul, which the Bible teaches is more precious than silver and gold. And, not only is your soul priceless, but so are your wife and children’s. As a husband and father, your first priority should be your family’s spiritual well-being. After seeing to that, then you will be in a position to ask the Lord Jesus to help you with your wife’s dowry.

      You therefore need to 1. Hear the Gospel, 2. Believe the Gospel, 3. Make the Lord Jesus Christ your Savior. This is the will of God concerning you. Afterwards, ask the Lord Jesus what His will is for you and voice your concerns regarding your wife’s dowry. I am confident the Lord Jesus will see you through. Are you ready? If yes, then click here.

      God bless you.

  34. Dear Still Man.
    Thank you for that, I found reading it most interesting.

    Our beliefs are a little different, I tend to focus more on God’s providence and blessing than all the many, many things “thou shalt not” do or you will go to hell.
    Be that as it may, I see that your intention in writing this was to help people suffering for reasons they do not understand and I appreciate that.

    Nevertheless, in one respect you are in error:
    Moloch (various spellings and pronunciations) was not a Babylonian deity, he was a west Semitic deity associated with the netherworld. Further, as with the deliberate mis-spelling of Baal Zebul (Baal lord of heaven) into BaalZebub (Ball lord of flies), the ancient Hebrew authors were well aware that at no point in the worship of Moloch (Molech, etc) were children sacrificed to him. I will explain now how and why this passage exists.
    The deity to whom children were sacrificed was in fact the west Semetic god of thunder and fertility Baal (and yes, he did have a Babylonian counterpart unlike Moloch although child sacrifice in ancient Babylon was very rare) the reason for sacrifice was rooted in their beliefs, because this god was closely tied to natural phenomena, the seasonal cycles, it was believed that during the dry season he travelled down to the netherworld after which he rose and brought fertility to the land again. It was believed that in order to secure release from the netherworld, it was necessary to find a substitute, often a child as these were considered to be “without blemish” and so in periods of great hardship and suffering the people of ancient Syria, Lebanon and yes, quite a few in ancient Judea and Isreal as well would ritualistically slay their own children by smashing their skulls on the altar to Baal. It is little wonder then that Baal-worship was so condemned in the Bible!
    Now it is believe that the passage in question was written in a time when the worship of Moloch had taken rood in Isreal, he was believe by many to be a far less abhorrent deity to Baal as his cult did not involve child sacrifice or ritualistic sex as Baal’s did.
    The ancient authors mentioned children being passed through the fires (of Baal) TO Moloch, hence they were not being sacrificed to Moloch directly, but it was argued that this apparent “benevolent” was the recipient of the child sacrifices made to secure Baal’s release. This is not a “mistake” in the bible, it is a very clever and clearly effective (since Moloch is not worshipped these days!) defence against the rise in popularity of an ancient pagan deity.

    Now, why am I so pedantic about such an apparently trivial detail? I mean it could be argued that “you don’t need to know the (however many) names of the devil to know that he is evil” and, “who cares whether it was Baal, Moloch or any other false god? child sacrifice is evil”. These may be true, but we unfortunately live in an age where gentlemen such as the right honourable Mr Dawkins and others of a similar mindset argue that Christianity as a whole is characterised by dogma and a refusal to accept facts. It is believed that a Christian is someone who will claim that the earth, not the sun is the centre of the solar system, and when presented with a telescope and asked to check for himself the Christian will refuse to look into it and claim that he won’t find truth in the telescope, only in the Bible. Making generalised and ignorant statements about other people’s beliefs, as distasteful as many aspects of them may be, claiming that “it’s all the same, it’s just satan hiding behind a different mask (even Catholicism?!!!) – you don’t need to know anything about it, other than that it is wrong” is playing directly into the hands of those who would see Christianity as dead as the worship of Moloch. I don’t disagree that it is through Christ and most definitely not Moloch (or Baal!) that we will find salvation, but please, if you are going to speak from a position of authority, please get your facts straight before sharing “the truth” – I am not the sort of Christian who blinds himself and says that he needs only the light of Christ and not the world to see, if you are then I pity you and will pray that you find wisdom.

    Christ be with you.

    • Hello, Patrick. I’m glad you found the article interesting.

      You say Moloch was not worshipped in Babylon, but was instead a west Semetic deity. You also say that children were not sacrificed to this deity. But the Bible makes it clear that Moloch was worshipped by the Canaanites and that they sacrificed their children to Moloch. God tells Moses before the children of Israel crossed the Jordan into Canaan:

      “When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee (the land of Canaan), thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

      “There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass though the fire” (Deuteronomy 18:9,10).

      “Thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Moloch” (Leviticus 18:21).

      That Moloch was in fact worshipped in Babylon is supported by secular sources also as the Encyclopedia Britannica says that Moloch was “a deity to which child sacrifices were made throughout the ancient Middle East.” (Encyclopedia Britannica, Vol. 8, Micropedia, p. 236, “Moloch”). The Middle East also includes Iraq, which is where Babylon is located. Moloch, then, was indeed worshipped in Babylon, which makes sense, because Moloch is just another name for Nimrod who was worshipped as a god in Babylon, from which idolatry originated.

      All these deities are the same because they are all the same man: Nimrod. Collier’s Encyclopedia supports this, as it says this about Moloch:

      “National deity of the Ammonites, recognized as an aspect of Baal and identified with such west Semitic gods as Melkarth of Tyre and Milcom of the Ammonites.” (Collier’s Encyclopedia, vol. 16, p. 426 ‘Moloch.’)

      When one deity is “identified with” another, it means they share the same attributes. They are the same deity with different names and characteristics. The fact that Moloch was identified with Melkarth and Milcom and was considered “an aspect of Baal” essentially means that Moloch, Melkarth, Milcom, and Baal are all the same deity. This is supported by the Illustrated Dictionary and Concordance of the Bible (2005, Sterling Publishing), a secular publication on biblical archaeology, which says:

      “The cult of Molech was connected with the worship of the Ammonites; but the Moabites worshipped a god named Chemosh who was closely associated with, or even easily substituted for, Molech. Molech and Chemosh may have been local variations of the same deity” (p. 661, Molech, Moloch).

      You make another dubious claim: that the worship of Moloch was regarded “far less abhorrent” than Baal worship: less abhorrent to whom? Certainly you don’t mean God, for God told Israel:

      “Whosoever he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

      “And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.”

      It doesn’t sound like God considered Molech any better than Baal, as the penalty for Baal worship was exactly the same: death. Why is this? Because Moloch and Baal are one and the same.

      Which brings me to your claim that Moloch worship wasn’t associated with sex as was Baal worship. This too is untrue, because the cult of Moloch was associated with all kinds of illicit sex just as the cult of Baal. As a matter of fact, every single verse in Leviticus 18 has to do with illicit sex except verse 21, which speaks about sacrificing children to Moloch. Now why on earth would God include one verse on child sacrifice in a chapter otherwise dedicated to abominable sex acts if the two were not somehow related? Simple: He wouldn’t. Abominable sex and child sacrifice have always gone and will always go hand in hand.

      Which brings me to yet another point. You say that children are not being sacrificed to Moloch today. How do you know, when ritualistic child sacrifice has never stopped? Ask any vice cop, and he will tell you that child sacrifice and the drug trade are closely linked. You need to get the book, The Franklin Coverup and read the testimonies of child sacrifice given by child abuse victims who witnessed it up close and personal. What do you think is going on in the Bohemian Grove? Children are still being sacrificed, and anyone with common sense can figure out that if it happened then and it’s happening now, then it makes little difference whether children are being sacrificed to Moloch or to Peewee Herman. And do you truly believe that Moloch worship is dead? Can you possibly be that tragically naïve?

      No, I don’t believe you are that naïve, which means there is another reason you have taken this almost apologetic stance on child sacrifice and the worship of Moloch, and have offered up all this contrary “knowledge” but no sources. Truth is, though you refute what the Bible says regarding the worship of Moloch, it is backed up by secular sources. And you haven’t given one shred of evidence to support your very unbiblical claims and even if you did, they wouldn’t be any more authoritative than the Bible. You know this, and this is why you imply that Christians should turn to the world for “light.” If you can’t handle the Truth of the Bible, turn to the world for a kindler, gentler, more politically correct answer, eh?

      Since you obviously have no regard for the Bible’s claim that children were in fact sacrificed to Moloch and instead believe that it was actually to Baal (through Moloch) that they were sacrificed, let us again appeal to the secular Collier’s Encyclopedia:

      “[C]hildren were burned in honor of Moloch in the valley of Hinnom at the high place of Tophet. Ahaz burned his children there…and Menassah made at least one of his sons pass through the fire” (p. 426).

      Could it be any clearer?

      Incidentally, here is what Encyclopedia Britannica says regarding your entire argument that children were not really sacrificed to Moloch:

      “Contemporary scholars now debate whether the Hebrews did initiate their children to Moloch by fire or whether the law is a prohibition against the possibility that they might take up this custom” (Vol. 8, p. 236 “Moloch”).[Italics mine.]

      Note that only “contemporary scholars” debate whether children were sacrificed to Moloch. The ancients knew better.

      So, as you see, Patrick, our views are actually not a little different, but as far apart as the East is from the West; and they should be. My opinions, as you would very well see, were you not so blind, are not generalized and ignorant at all, but are actually quite specific and very well informed.

      The Bible says that the whole world lieth in wickedness, which is spiritual darkness. Why on earth, then, would I turn to the world for light? No sir, I prefer to use Jesus Christ, the Light of the world, and see the world through Him. And I couldn’t possibly care less that you would pity me for doing it. It’s gotten me this far and it will get me a lot farther.

      I covet your sincere prayers for wisdom on my behalf all the same, though.

      • Sir,

        I happen to come to your website because I was looking into family curses because my sister had mentioned that a woman put a curse on my father years ago. And I do believe that the sins of our ancestors will carry on to the next generations unless we break the cycle.

        But first a little about me. I grew up roman catholic and have a strong sense of God and Lord Jesus. There have been many things in my life that I have questioned such as praying to statues, saints, the rituals of the church, etc. I believe the relationship between Jesus and me is my strong belief and faith in him and his words.

        But I did not realize the connections between witchcraft or idolatry to the simple things I do in life, such as playing the lottery, going to Vegas for vacation, or reading my horoscope. It made me question myself and what I could do to change my life, more importantly, change my children’s life. I mentioned before about family curse – my great, great grandfather was a Spanish priest who married my great, great grandmother, which ultimately started our path. Since then, on my father’s side, the sacred vow of marriage was taken lightly – divorce, adultery, multiple kids with different fathers. This trickled down to my own parents in that my father cheated on my mom through their whole marriage, even to the point where his own mother and siblings would help or hide it from my mom. I vowed that I wouldn’t let this happen in my own marriage but turned out, I did the same thing. I married a man who was abusive so in turn I cheated on him, eventually having a baby with someone else. I made the choice to divorce him and worked really hard at providing for my 4 kids. I was a single-mom for 10 years.

        So, aside from my faith and belief, I am a critical care nurse and am currently pursuing my doctorate. I believe in science and am amazed in how far we’ve come in improving health. Many people say that you can’t believe in God if you believe in science. I want to help people heal, get better, improve the nursing profession. Can I do both – believe in science and our Lord? If the problems I’ve had in my life are due to my ancestors’ sins and due to the fact that I’ve engaged in the lottery or gambling, can I stop it from affecting my children’s future? You said I should clean out my house of statues, crosses, stop reading horoscopes, profess my sins, and ask for forgiveness; but how can I expect the rest of my family to do this? My husband likes to play the lottery as do the rest of my family. My mother does her nightly devotional to the statue of Mary, the cross, and the infant Jesus. My house is full of decorations from other cultures like Asian or American Indian, should I just throw them out? I took my kids out of catholic school and now I’m afraid they don’t receive any lessons about God or Jesus. They don’t pray anymore, they don’t thank God anymore – my middle son doesn’t even believe in God anymore and has addicting habits. For a while I thought it was my fault because I removed them from catholic school. Is it enough for me to confess my sins to break this curse or do I need to do more so my children’s lives could change and hopefully find their way back to our Lord Jesus?

        I have 2 sisters and 1 brother. My youngest sister seems to not have been affected by this family curse. Her marriage is intact and she doesn’t play lottery or gamble. She is not into occult music or shows. It just seems that her and her husband just work, do good things, and enjoy nature. On the other hand, my other sister just got divorced and has been dating several men since then; and my brother was enticed by a witch with whom he’s been married to for a long time. His life is clearly miserable but he cannot leave her no matter what. I don’t want this cycle to continue. What should I do?

        • Hello, Maria.

          Let me first clarify that the Lord God, not people, puts generational curses on a person. Someone may curse another, but the real reason the curse works is because the person is not covered by the blood of Jesus. This applies to Christians who are living in sin as much as to the unsaved. What has been handed down to you, therefore, likely has little or nothing to do with the woman who cursed your father, but could probably be attributed to a generational curse.

          Because the world has rejected Jesus, 99% of the population of the world is largely ignorant of what is sinful in God’s eyes, and is living in sin. Consequently, the vast majority of people are actually under a generational curse without even knowing it. This is evidenced by the popularity of cigarettes and alcohol (which are drugs (witchcraft), the prevalence of pornography and fornication, and the frequency of mental illness. If you are under a generational curse, then you are living in sin. And if you are living in sin, then you are defenseless against demonic attack, which is what a spoken curse of the witchcraft variety really is. A sinful world is fertile ground for a witch.

          It is a very good thing that you want to get right with the Lord Jesus and that you want the same for your family. But, when it comes to generational curses, depending on the ages of your children, you may not be able to remove the curse from them, as they may already be old enough to understand the difference between good and evil and to decide for themselves if they want to continue in sin or accept the Lord Jesus as their Sin Eraser. The conscience plays an important role in the spiritual life of a person—especially the Christian (John 8:9, 1 Timothy 1:19, Hebrews 10:22, 1 Peter 3:20). The Bible teaches that before we get saved, we are enemies of God in our own mind (Colossians 1:21), because God has given every human being a conscience whereby we know intuitively that we are doing wrong even if we have never been formally taught the concept of sin.

          The Roman Catholic church teaches that when children reach the age of eight, they are accountable for their sins; but the Bible does not teach this. What is clear from the Bible is that our conscience convicts us of sin. Because each child reaches maturity at his own time, it is my belief that every child becomes conscious of sin at his own time. When a child is old enough to understand sin and its consequences—when is conscious of sin that is, then he is old enough for his conscience to convict him of sin. If he submits to his conscience, he will repent and confess his own sins. If a child is too young to understand the concept of sin, especially generational sin and its consequences as outlined in Exodus Chapters 20:4-5 and 34:7 (which talk about the generational curse), Leviticus Chapters 18 and 19, and Deuteronomy Chapter 18 (which discuss the sins that will earn you a generational curse), then we as parents can confess our sins and those of our ancestors, and the child will be free.

          Once our children understand the concept of sin and its consequences, however, they are responsible for their own spiritual well being. This is especially true if they are teenagers and have already tasted sin for themselves. At that point, our responsibility is simply to continue to raise them according to godly principles, intercede for them through prayer, and be the example of godly living they can emulate. There is little else you can for them.

          Regarding ridding your house of occult objects and paraphernalia, if I were you, I would throw out as soon as possible all such things that belonged to me and those things that my husband allowed me to get rid of. But don’t go to war with your husband in your zeal to do the will of God. As he is not yet in the place you are right now, it may take time, if at all, for him to understand the importance of your actions, even if he is very reasonable. So, if your husband is not OK with you getting rid of something, then leave it alone for the moment, and ask him again down the line, asking God to soften your husband’s heart. And if he never consents, then leave it alone altogether. You don’t want to start a war in your house because you are trying to live right. Just do as the Syrian general Naaman when he forsook his idols to serve the living God, but still had to serve an idolatrous king. He simply asked God to forgive him whenever he accompanied his king into the house of his idol. And God did just that.

          The same thing applies to your family’s engaging in sinful activities such as playing the lottery, gambling, or praying to the Virgin Mary. Now that you have received the knowledge of the truth, and have found out just how sinful we really are, you will find that one of the hardest things about the Christian walk is to watch our loved ones continue to live in sin and ambivalence towards the things of God. The bright spot, however, is that once you have gotten into a right relationship with the Lord Jesus, then you can intercede for your family, and pray for their conversion.

          This is very important, because, while you knew of the Lord Jesus, as a Catholic, you didn’t really know Him, as Roman Catholicism preaches “another Jesus” (2 Corinthians 11:3) and not the true Savior. It was for this reason that you were unable to honor the Lord Jesus in your life and, as the rest of us, made many mistakes. Now that you know the Truth, however, you now have the opportunity to love and honor Jesus with your heart, rather than just with words, and give Him exclusively the true worship that He wishes from you. You can now honor Him with your life, and you can show your family what Christianity is really all about. This is what God has called Christians to do.

          The Bible says that it’s the parent’s responsibility to “bring up a child in the way he should go.” If, therefore, you are concerned about your children’s well being since you removed them from Catholic school, then—when you have gotten yourself into a right relationship with the Lord Jesus—this would be a good opportunity for you to teach them the right way.

          Lastly, true science agrees with the Bible, while science “falsely so-called” disagrees with the Bible. According to Romans 1, God created science to bring men to a knowledge of Himself:

          “Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them (the scientists, the doctors, etc.), for God hath showed it unto them.

          “For the invisible things of Him (cells, molecules, DNA, distant galaxies, etc.) from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made (powerful electron microscopes, the Hubble space telescope, etc.), even His eternal power and godhead so that they (the scientists, the doctors, etc.) are without excuse.”

          In other words, God helped man to invent devices that can see things that cannot be seen with the naked eye, which things would bring him to the inevitable conclusion that there is indeed a God.

          But Romans 1 goes on to say that…

          “When they (the scientists, the doctors, etc.) knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful, but became vain in their imaginations and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.” (Romans 1:21,22).

          Knowing that most people doubt the existence of God, to say nothing of His omnipotence, these men saw an opportunity to cash in on the situation. So, rather than glorify God and make Him known to the world, they withheld this knowledge and, exalting themselves, set themselves up as lords over the people. They made themselves gods.

          True science will lead a man to God, while science falsely so-called denies the One True God. You most certainly can believe in science and believe on the Lord Jesus, because He created science for the purpose of revealing Himself to us through the things He created.

          I pray I have been of help to you. God bless you and your family.

          Your servant,
          TSM

  35. Hello, the Still Man, I have been a Christian for 16 years. I have attended several retreats that are geared towards healing the Heart and removing Generational curses from my family and I. I write to you, in hopes that this will finally be removed. This is not a feeling of being Dirty. I am always cleaning. I can clean my entire home, and the darn thing is filthy again. It is just a tinge of dirty. Our items we purchase seem to break for no reason and within a very quick time. Our cars do not last, and they are filthy; our electrical things do not last, and we are always striving for cleanliness. If we hire outside help, we can get the best references and these people always do a bad job. People often talk to us as if we smell bad or are tinged with filth. I am certain this a curse. With all the programs I have been in I have always focused on my mother. She was a Christian, that before her salvation played games with many other religions. Then my maternal Grandfather was a Mason and an Atheist. We are certain he made his millions with dirty money. Then there is My Grandmother who I believe dabbled in witchcraft. Then there are my sins before salvation that I focus on in these retreats. In these programs, I would mention my father without knowing anything about his history. My father died when I was 10. In my eyes he never did anything wrong, he was my hero. Plus my parents were divorced, and I did not know him. But the other night I heard the Lord say to me clear as day. “Have you looked into your father’s sins?” So I ponder this for a while. I go to my siblings and ask questions, like was dad a Mason or was he a Shriner, And other questions too. I know particularly that God is speaking on this Dirtiness Distortion that is prevalent in my home and seemed to pass to my adult Children. Recently, I went to my brothers funeral. I do not know my father’s children very well. I have met them a handful of times. At this funeral, I am baffeled because they all seem to have the same tinge of filth that I have. Now, God brings this back to me when he tells me to look at my father’s sins. Look, I do not live in poverty syndrome, my Husband has a career in finance, and I homeschool my children, we have a nice home, we work hard, we are educated, we love God. This has to be lifted so I can reach others to the Kingdom of God. Please Help me, I am desperate, for healing and breaking these curses, and to finally be free, I want my family to be free from this drudgery. This evening, I was reminded from the enemy: My Ex-husband once told me he could no longer be with me because his father thought I belonged in a trash bin. This is just an example of many where people treat me like this. I am unsure what to pray for, nor how, until the other day I just thought that it was just my portion in Life, and I had basically given up trying to improve… Thank you for listening.

    • It seems to me that you are dealing with three separate problems, which you believe may be due to a generational curse, but do not seem to be rooted in generational sin. This is important because according to the Bible, God said He would punish a person’s descendants with the same abominable sin the person is guilty of. That is why a person under a generational curse will commit the same sins as his parents and grandparents and will likewise inherit the same problems.  The three problems you mention: that is, filthiness, things breaking and/or not lasting as long as they should, and people suggesting you are filthy, do not suggest any generational sin and, therefore do not seem to me to be the result of a generational curse. 

      Your mention of people saying things that imply that you are filthy, however, is very interesting, and may suggest that Satan is trying to get you to believe that about yourself.  In my experience, when Satan wants you to believe something about yourself, he will often use people who will, either intentionally or unintentionally say something to you that will reinforce what Satan wants you to believe. The power of suggestion is very real and is an oft-used device of Satan. You may recall how Satan influenced Job’s wife to try to get Job to kill himself using the very words that God used to brag on Job. 

      Recall that before Satan destroyed Job’s wealth and murdered his children, he told God that the only reason Job was so faithful to Him was because God blessed and protected him. Satan said that when he got through with Job, he would “curse God to His face.” But the Bible says, “In all this, Job sinned not with his lips.” God therefore said to Satan, “Hast thou considered Job? How he still retains his integrity?” Immediately after this discussion, Job’s wife says to him, “Dost thou still retain thine integrity? Curse God and die.” Job’s wife used the very word God used to describe Job to hurt him. It was Job’s integrity that chapped Satan’s hide, so he used that same word to attack Job.

      This may very well be true in your case. You say that you clean your house constantly. It could be that Satan hates that about you and, because he can’t change you, he’s attempting to destroy your self image. This is where your ex mother-in-law and others who treat you as though you are filthy come in. You very rightly said that the enemy caused you to remember what she told you years ago. Let’s call that enemy Satan, and let’s suppose that he caused you to remember those hurtful words, for the purpose of reinforcing the unhealthy self image he’s trying to foster in you. Let’s also suppose that for the same reason, Satan has influenced people to speak and act in a manner which suggests they believe you are a filthy person. The combined effect is that you begin to believe that you are under some type of spiritual ban, when that may not be the case at all.

      This is extremely important, because many Christians are under constant attack by Satan and his legions of blind slaves. I can tell you from personal experience that many of these people have been contracted to say and do things to us that are designed to affect us psychologically. This is called psychological warfare, one of the “silent weapons for quiet wars.” The effect of such tactics is to make it difficult for Christians to fully live the victory that Jesus purchased for us at Calvary.

      This could also be the reason why electrical appliances break down and cars do not last. Someone very well could be sabotaging your things. I have some experience with this. Besides making you feel something is spiritually wrong with you, there is the financial consequence and inconvenience of repairing or replacing those items that break down. And, if there is a fixer-upper in your family, then there is the cost of parts, down time, and man-hours spent in repairing things. The poor job that hired help do in cleaning your house seems deliberate to me, and combined with the other problems, could be part of an organized campaign to destroy your confidence, self-image, and, if possible, your faith.

      What I am saying is that it doesn’t sound to me that you are dealing with a generational curse so much as you are involved in a spiritual war that you may or may not have known anything about. Mind you, this is only my opinion; but, I have been involved in spiritual warfare for a number of years and I have learned a few things about how the enemy operates.

      My advice to you would be to go into prayer and fasting and ask the Lord Jesus for guidance, taking into consideration what I have said here. If you are under a generational curse, then He will reveal this to you. If you are under attack, as I suspect you are, then He will also reveal this.

      I hope I have been of some help to you. God bless you as you seek God’s face.

      • Hello Again, Thank you for replying. I will take your thoughts into consideration while fasting and praying. I do know for sure I have and am in a constant battle. I could name instance after instance things were said to me, or things that happened, with good people and evil ones that stopped or slowed my growth in Jesus. Where after I was left in shock and unsure of what to do. Sometimes, I have this vision that if I just started to proclaim the gospel, and I started to daily step in sync with God all these things would fall off of me. Yet I often keep silent in the battle. I believe I am suppose to reach people for Christ. The more I focus on other things the less I focus on the gifts God has given me. As of now, I have tears welling up in my eyes. Thank you for confirming the many thoughts I had in my own mind. This as been confirmed several times over the past few years and especially the past few weeks. Often my logical mind or perhaps the demonic, I start to think that this is just my lot in life versus fighting an unseen battle that seems overwhelmingly crazy. My question for you now is, How do I fight this battle when often I feel so weak? or if I begin to think that I am crazy? To the effect of me not even opening my mouth. I do not have a prayer partner to encourage. I have a great husband, and he believes these many things, but he is always on the fence not willing to cross over into the firelines, I would love for him, my best friend and husband to be my prayer partner. When I tell people of the things that God reveals to me or pray with them they treat me oddly. When I do pray, and in battle, I am loud, the Spirit of the Lord just moves. More Recently, I go to pray and I am unsure with what to say. Someone over the past few years stated that I should be on my knees and more reverent, which I am reverent. So I do this and I feel like I am being defeated. I do not want to offend my Savior, Jesus. When truly and whole-heartedly pray, I pray, and I walk about, and I shout, and sing, and praise,and I speak in tongues, it is powerful. It is almost like the presence of God is walking with me. Am I sinning against him when praying in this manner? When I pray, and I am meek and on my knees, it almost feeling like I am being defeated, I have lost the battle. I take the Ephesians 6 to heart, I take the fact that we are fighting a battle we cannot see. Yes, we are to be meek and mild with Jesus, but if we are fighting a battle together with Jesus against the Devil and his schemes, then how should we react? I think there is so much in the Spiritual world we cannot see nor do we know, even the people that know a lot (discerners and the prophetic) do not know fully the battle that Christians face on a daily basis. But when I read passages in the Bible of Spiritual conflict and human conflict, this is what we are fighting for and against Such as Gideon, or David and Goliath, or Elijah and his servant, or Daniel and the Angel and the list goes on and on. I am not anyone affluential, most people do not like me, often I am a little too truthful with people, I often wonder why the gates of Hell seem to attack me so much, Then I am reminded, I have a story that could reach the masses. I am good on stage and can see God moving me in that direction, I speak what God tells me to say and I do it fervently. Even though that was just once, God often speaks to me :Are you Ready? and Do you trust me? Yet no doors are opened. I bet you have a ton of spiritual battles from this website here. So I am sure you understand. In fact, I know you do…
        After writing the above post my sister on my mothers’ side stated that my dad had a Masonic ring and that he was fairly heavy in this, I remember the ring and the controversy over it, it was suppose to go to me. I am going to pray against this too. Your sister in Christ Jesus, Olga

        • Hi, again, Olga.

          How do you fight back when you feel so weak? You lean on Jesus. The battle is His, not ours. Jesus said that without Him, we can do nothing. That means that you cannot fight this battle in your own strength and expect to win. Satan is the most intelligent and most powerful of God’s creations. There’s no way we can fight him by ourselves. Realizing how weak you are and confessing that fact is probably the best thing you have done with regard to this spiritual warfare. Now, turn it over to the Lord Jesus.

          With regard to prayer, I would be the last person on earth to tell you how or how not to pray. Prayer is a very personal thing, and the way you pray has a lot to do with your personality, the type of relationship you have with the Lord Jesus, and what you’re going through. I talk to Jesus as if He is in the room with me, because He is in the room with me. I’m constantly talking to Him, wherever I am, and no matter what I’m doing. I talk to Him about just about everything. Prayer is the simplest act of worship of all, because it just involves talking, listening, and trusting.

          The most important thing with regard to prayer is to make sure you are always in a right relationship with Jesus, because, as the Psalmist says, “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me” (Psalm 66:18). Jesus Himself said, “If ye abide in me, and my Word abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will and it shall be done unto you” (John 15:7). That means we have to stay yoked to the Lord Jesus and read His Holy Word. We are going to make mistakes, as the Bible says, “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:9). But the Apostle goes on to say, “If we confess our sins, He [Jesus] is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). Confession of sins, therefore (to God, not to men), is of paramount importance if we want to stay in a right relationship with the Lord Jesus.

          What is so cool about Jesus, and one reason I love Him so, is that though He is the King of kings and the Lord of lords, He has made Himself accessible to us at all times and in all places. He always condescends to us. He knows how you feel about Him in your heart, so there’s no danger of offending Him, if offending Him is not your intention. If He wants you to pray in a certain way, He will speak to your heart and you will know. So, don’t worry what you sound like or what you look like to other people. It’s not their business.

          You are so right when you say most people have no idea what Christians go through on a daily basis. I once watched a movie where this police officer investigating a murder was in a relationship with one of the people under investigation. The girl was brilliant, but was from the streets. Once when visiting her, he said that he didn’t want anyone to know who he was and where he lived. The girl said to him, “Everyone knows who you are and where you live.” What she meant was that everyone in her world (the Underworld) knew who he was and where he lived. This agrees with the Bible and the story of the seven sons of Sceva who tried to cast a demon out of a possessed man. The demon knew they were not believers, and when they tried to cast the demon out saying, “We adjure you in the name of Jesus, whom Paul preacheth,” the demon responded, “Jesus I know, and Paul I know. But who are ye?” The true Christian soldier, although unknown to most of the world, which is fast asleep, is well known to the forces of darkness. I remember former witch John Todd saying that the most feared man in his city was a Christian preacher, who was not afraid to speak the truth. He said that there was not a meeting that the preacher’s name was not mentioned. They watched his every move and listened to every word he spoke. That’s the life of the true Christian.

          Regarding why Satan attacks you, I will tell you what a relative of mine told me regarding my battles. In Angola, children knock mangoes from trees by throwing rocks at them. The relative likened my spiritual battles with this custom, saying, “If there were no fruit on your tree, then nobody would be throwing rocks at you.” This man, mind you, is not a Christian; but the wisdom in those words was inescapable; and, at the time, I really needed to hear that and have never forgotten it. I hope you won’t either.

          God bless you, sister Olga.

          Tony

  36. My Brother! I want to encourage you to keep spreading the word and encouraging Christians. I have recently started reading your articles at work and i want to tell you my life has truly been BLESSED. After reading this particular article God brought conviction to me about smoking cigarettes and Marijuana. When you said that using drugs was witchcraft i could no longer make excuses for my “worldy” lifestyle. I vowed to myself that i would witness with my life and not just my words because afterall we are living in the last days and we are on the brink of spiritual warfare. So my dear brother i want you to know that through your words given to you by the lord our God Jesus Christ I am now free of a stronghold and witchcraft. I love you and I will pray for you and your family as well.

    Your sister in Christ
    Brandi

    • Praise God, Brandi! Now that is good news! I’m so happy I have been of service to you and I’m very grateful for your kind and loving words and encouragement. I couldn’t be happier that you have made a commitment to “walk the walk” in these hellish last days and be the salt and light the Lord Jesus made you to be. God bless you for praying for my family and I, as we could sure use it. I will also pray for you my dear Sister!

  37. You know nothing about Catholicism.

    I will not give you any evidences or verses because those are all over the internet.

    Now all that you have is poison in your heart; no brother it’s not your love for the church. If you have love in your heart, you will pray for the conversion of the world and people who are on wrong ways.

    As you think Roman Catholics and some other Christians are idolaters, why don’t you just pray for us? If you do that with sincerity, you will be led to ONE true church found by Jesus ( whichever it is). OR do you think only your views are infallible? Obviously your views will be different from other thousands of protestant denominations also! So aren’t they in error and that doesn’t matter to their salvation?

    If you are open for a study on one of the aspects of Catholicism i.e. Holy Mass ( from a ‘Protestant turned Catholic’ viewpoint), please read ‘ The Lamb’s Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth’ by Dr. Scott Hahn. Or just read the early century Church Fathers.

    Peace to you.
    Carol, India

    • Actually, Carol, I do in fact, pray for Catholics as well as witness to them wherever I go, because I love Catholics (my wife is one) and want to lead them to the true worship of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. As a matter of fact, I am a missionary and evangelist in the very Catholic state of Bavaria, Germany. You have to love a Catholic to tell him the truth.

      I know a great deal more about Roman Catholicism than you think, and it is for this reason that I could never be led to become a Catholic. You cannot defend Roman Catholicism using the Bible, as the Bible makes absolutely no provision for anyone to become a Catholic. You will therefore have to appeal to some secular source, as you have, for support.

      Your own Council of Trent places Roman Catholic tradition on par with the Bible as a source of doctrine. If Roman Catholicism were Christian, it would esteem the Bible as its only source of doctrine. As it is, the Bible comes after the writings of the Latin Church fathers, various ecumenical councils (such as Trent, from which the Roman Catechism is derived, and Constance), the Majesterium (when the Pope speaks ex cathedra), and your traditions.

      Your liturgical feasts are not even based on the Bible. The date for your Easter celebration, for example, is not based on the resurrection of Jesus, but on the full moon. Your own comment proves that Roman Catholicism is not biblical as you cannot give me any Bible verses to justify Mary worship, the veneration of dead saints, prayers for the dead, Eucharist “adoration,” the unbloody sacrifice of the Mass, Auricular Confession, Purgatory, priests who stand in the place of Jesus Christ, nuns, indulgences, payment for masses to be said, etc. etc.

      Roman Catholicism is not biblical, because Roman Catholicism is not in the Bible.

      • Amen Amen. I agree with the Still Man. I just found this website and it is a blessing. I attended Catholic High School for four years before I was saved and born again. Once I became saved, a lot of things made sense to me about Catholicism. You are absolutely right – – Catholicism is not biblical and it is definitely not a Godly religion. The Bible clearly states in the ten commandments “thou shalt have no other god before me,” the Bible clearly tells us not to worship idols — yet, in my experience with the Catholic religion, they pay more attention to “saints” and the “Virgin Mary,” than they do to God himself.

        How dare anyone exalt anything above God and then call yourself a Godly religion!!!!!! This trickery is evident and as soon as I became a believer it was revealed to me. No matter what you call yourself, if you read the Bible and understand it in its entirety, you will understand that the practice of praying to saints (and by the way – – what human can call themselves a saint . . . ) and to the Virgin Mary is CLEARLY against the commandment of God. Not meaning to offend anyone, but I would rather stand up to the truth of God than to succumb to the ignorance and sinful ways of man. I pray for all the people that the Catholic religion has led astray. The Bible tells us to study to show our own selves approved. None of us as believers can use the excuse of “I did not know.” All of this is written – – 2+2 = 4. Read the Bible for yourself and you will see the errors in Catholicism, amongst the majority of all other man-made religions!

        Thank you Still Man for being bold for God, and to God be ALL of the glory (not the Virgin Mary, not St. Peter. . . . . ) !!!!!!!!!!

        • You are very welcome, Tamika; however the Bible does say that true Christians are “called to be saints,” and the Apostles in their epistles address the body of Christ as such. Saint simply means “sanctified one,” “separated one,” or “called out one.” In other words, God has separated us from the rest of the world and unto Himself. What a priviledge! Praise God for your deliverance from Catholicism, and may the Good Lord continue to bless and enlighten you.

    • “Yoga is a Sanskrit word meaning union or discipline; it is cognate with the English word “yoke.” (Collier’s Encyclopedia 1991, Vol. 12, p. 129). To yoke means “to bind to.” In that one of the goals of Hinduism, of which Yoga is a discipline, is moksha, the release from the cycle of un-ending rebirth, then what the yoga practitioner is binding himself to is the wheel of reincarnation. Reincarnation is a satanic doctrine, in that it was Satan that told Eve that there was no death. Moreover, Om or Ohm is a demon; so the person who chants Om is yoking himself to the demon Om.

  38. Dear Sir

    I kindly seek your advice. I am 51 years old. I am the firstborn of my generation. My father was a second son. My grandfather was a Free Mason. The Free Masons attended his funeral.The first son of my grandfather was stillborn . His first wife committed suicide. My father and elder brother never joined the free masons.I Have never been married, am still a virgin, i cannot drive, i am a non practising christian(feels if something is keeping me aback. I suffer from Agora Phobia. I have seven pornography magazines , and for some reason like horror dvd’s. I have an obsesive fear of the number 13, and three sixes. I would greatly if you can give me advice.

    • In my opinion, you are being “held back” by the fact that you are, by your own admission, a “nonpracticing Christian.” A true Christian is not perfect, but he is very careful to “put no unclean thing before his eyes” and to “keep his heart and mind with all diligence.” Pornography is a serious sin, which Satan uses to bring many under bondage. A person enthralled by pornography has had his reason compromised and can no longer discern between good and evil. Horror movies are another tool of Satan. Pornography and horror go hand in hand, and it is no accident that many horror movies also feature pornography on some level. Both pornography and horror are of the devil, and there is no way you will be able to honor God while you are honoring Satan; the two are diametrically opposed.

      I don’t know what causes agoraphobia, or why you are afraid of the number 13; but all fear is of the devil as the Bible says fear is torment.

      The Bible says that we should work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. My advice to you, therefore, is ask yourself what it is that you truly believe and why you believe it. Many people claim to be saved, but are really not. I myself was such a person before I actually heard the Gospel. If you determine that you have never heard the true Gospel message and have never received the Lord Jesus as your Savior, then I highly suggest that you read this post on why we need to get saved. If you believe that you are saved, then I suggest you have a long talk with the Lord Jesus and ask Him where you went wrong. One thing that is for certain is that you are not in a right relationship with Jesus Christ. And, if you want to be free, then you need to be.

      Your servant,
      TSM

  39. Hi brother Still Man,

    I decided finally to write my story publicly to possibly give someone in the same situation hope. I was saved under very confusing circumstances about half a year ago. Due to generational curse, that I only now almost at the age of 33 recognize, I’ve been addicted to cigarettes, alcohol (since the age 10-12 from which I was able to get away from in 2009) and since then to marijuana as well as other prescription and street drugs growing up in a small town notorious for it’s nazi -history as close in time as in the nineties. I had always thought I’m right being just a laid-back “pot hippie”. Little did I know.

    After learning what has really happened to me due to my sins of addiction to pornography, fornication and other grievous sexual sins (including a now an adult homosexual relative luring me into performing acts on him as well as him as children) I’m bound to so many unholy spiritual ties I’m either unable to sever or a demon, that is still feeding off of a generational sin, is able to remind me daily. I used to idolize rock/punk ‘stars’ as well as gamble and play poker.

    I’ve learned enough to specify the demons, that still dwell in me to be a familiar spirit, a spirit of enchantment (once hypnotized) and a spirit of sorcery (drugs). And possibly the spirit of palsy, yet having enough faith to make myself run again might be a stretch.

    Under possession I broke my back at age 19 jumping an unsuccessful somersault to which I now daily thank the Lord Jesus in prayer to be able to still walk. I’m a diagnosed bi-polar, which from my country’s language is roughly translated to ‘two-way mind disorder’. Possessed I’ve also walked almost naked on a cold January night a few years back so that both my feet were close to being amputated. Satan must’ve really hated, that I walked after all he had tried to do to get me to a wheelchair.

    I struggle daily, after my salvation I still have that ‘other (evil) mind’ in me.

    A demon of which I can tell no one or have anyone in my family listen to me anymore, because to them I’m either crazy or “the center of the world” talking biblical truth. They curse profanities to my face. On the phone I’ve been told to “have been born too fragile into this world”, the other thing is hanging up on me even though it’s them, that called me. When I seemed to get through to my stepbrother, the last thing he said to me leaving from my mother’s house (because they threatened to call an ambulance) was “it’s good that you have those other sick friends”, after telling him I fortunately have support from reading your site, dear Still man. I had the hardest time to understand what was happening, because I’d thought, that my family would’ve rejoiced over my salvation from drugs. Quite the opposite. They’re ready to commit me (again). But I don’t blame them. They’re still in bondage. I love them as did Lord Jesus those who killed him until the end.

    The Spirit showed me to your site, dear brother Still Man, but I must emphasize how long of a process deliverance can be to someone, who might be coming from similar difficult circumstances. I believe the KJV is the infallible Word of the living God. I believe in the remission of sins in the shed blood of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. But having made errors after my salvation of following the demon I feel sometimes I’m in an endless loop of sin-confession. The newest trick it has come up with is trying to predict what I’m going to do next to make me believe I’m doing it on command.

    This has put me into a situation where I have to either speak out loud with Jesus constantly or put on gospel music to silence it, which doesn’t seem to fully work anymore either.

    I’m at my 4th attempt of confessing my own and my forefathers’ sins, which have grown to about 20 pages long. I lose hope every now and then, the demon makes me also scratch myself constantly and is laughing even as I write this. The demons left from days of drug use are also still in the apartment, because if I forget (or by choice) don’t pray Jesus to protect me and the Holy Spirit my dreams I’m attacked both physically (blanket being pulled) as well as in form of nightmares. But I’ve promised the Lord in prayer not to give up for ‘thy will be done’. On the 5th attempt I’ll probably just confess every single sin one by one, no matter if my forefathers committed them or not. All I know is, that I must be getting closer to being delivered, because of the neighbours’ noise campaign as well as harassment in form of peeping through or smoking outside my window as I open it in the morning for fresh air. At one point I taunted and rebuked the Satan and prayed for persecution just to make sure this is real. And Jesus showed me it is.

    Double-minded man, unstable in all my ways, but I’d rather stumble alone than fall into sin again in the multitude. I’m about to lose the custody to my daughter as well, I was kept from seeing her on Christmas. She won’t answer my phone calls either, rarely even text messages. I dishonoured and was rebellious to my father. Comes around goes around. I just couldn’t love him after seeing him beat my mother (drunk). In the end in 2012 he drowned drunk (to which I think the same spirit, that jumped into me got him into thus repeatedly telling me to kill myself). But how can I even begin to explain all of this to an unsaved 11-year old if I’m even given a chance to do so?

    I’m also wondering if there’s truth to God’s “perfect” plan for each one of us, if we follow a straight path and don’t wander left or right (sin)? I’ve seen talk of this compared to Peter walking on water, until fear got the best of him, so I guess this is what’s walking in the Spirit.

    I’m tired almost all the time and there’s these chills in the back of my head often.

    Please pray for me.

    • I don’t know everything about the Christian life, Matti, but I disagree that deliverance has to be a long process, as there is no biblical precedent for this. I believe that our deliverance is directly proportionate to our faith; therefore, if our faith is weak, then so too will be our deliverance. Your own testimony demonstrates a lack of faith and an unstable foundation. You admit, for example, to being double-minded and unstable. Note that the Apostle James said of such a man “Let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord,” for he is “like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” (James 1:6,7). You also demonstrate a lack of faith in the Word of God when you say that you’re “wondering if there’s truth to God’s ‘perfect’ plan for each one of us.”

      This, I believe, is the reason you have confessed your sins four times and have received no relief: it seems that you are checking the blocks, but there is no faith to support your actions. Recall the woman with the issue of blood. Jesus told her that her faith had made her whole (Matthew 9:22). Recall also the cripple man begging alms at the Beautiful gate in Act 3. Peter told the amazed crowd that he and John had not healed the man, but the name of Jesus and the man’s faith in that name are what healed him (Acts 3:16).

      In my opinion, it is a lack of faith in the Word of God (both the Man and the Book) that is keeping you from being delivered. There’s an old saying that goes, “Know Jesus know change; no Jesus, no change.” I would add to that “Know Jesus know faith; no Jesus, no faith.”

      TSM

      • Thank you, brother Still Man. Especially for getting back to me so quickly.

        There is something holding me back for sure, I can see my errors now. I wrote a lengthy e-mail to you from my old e-mail address a while back, but that’s been compromised and some incoming e-mails have been either blocked or I’m being lied to so I have no way of knowing if my outgoing are being received either. I also to my err stated in that e-mail I’d done automatic writing since my salvation, yet I didn’t understand the concept then. I wasn’t possessed and didn’t allow anything to write by my hand, but did write letters dictated to me by an unclean spirit. I’ve confessed and asked to be forgiven for doing those out of ignorance.

        It’s the lack of faith that led me to still do these things.

        It’s the lack of faith, that still makes me believe in a hypocrite doctor’s diagnosis.

        And it’s the lack of faith which prevents me from casting anything out. It’s clear as day now.

        God’s pushing me to get a baptism, there’s an issue with that, because I’m alone and a charismatic church was the only place in my town where I could’ve received a biblical baptism. But against what their website claimed they wouldn’t have agreed to do it unless I joined as well. That was enough to just say “Good day and God bless”.

        Only today did I understand to ask for forgiveness for, that I’m not not doing it out of rebellion, because it’s something I want myself as well, but it’ll be about a month to be able to go to my grandaunt’s, who is a believer and has a bathtub. Figured she’ll do it, even though she’s (to my knowledge) never received her’s after being born again. She also confessed to another person, but I won’t contest her faith, I’ve done so via e-mail concerning generational sins, but I feel she’s just under (a heavy) one and thus unable to admit it exists.

        I wasn’t able to figure out if you had been baptized when you received your deliverance, so is it a possibility it’s related to my issue?

        Your ministry has been a huge blessing and I’ve thanked Lord Jesus for guiding me to it so early in my Christian walk and allowing the Holy Spirit reveal these things to you and keep your blog from getting taken down or hacked. Sometimes it feels like coming home opening your blog, like stepping into a church where no one judges and understands persecution, because it’s very real.

        It’s the soul’s yearning to find a church. In these times it seems there’s none, that aren’t tainted anymore. Internet really is “the final frontier”, as you put it. In a perfect world we’d have video services, gathering us to hear the infallible Word of the living God, but that seems improbable knowing your busy schedule and family duties as well.

        All the best to them, I pray for all of your safety, especially your saved children.

        Your brother in Christ,
        Matti

    • My dear friend in Jesus, Igreet you with The Divine Peace of Jesus! First, let me share with you that what we speak, is what we get. Jesus shed His Blood on the Cross for you. Therefore, know that once you break the generational curses on you, and your family, then your free, and free of doubled minded ness!!!! You are free. Now if doublemindedness continues to attack you or any other evil spirit then just, “IGNORE IT”. Never, ever say anything negative about yourself again!!!! You have to surround yourself with good holy people to build you up, not put you down or threaten you with hospitalization. It will be in your best interest to separate yourself from family in the meantime, at least from visiting them. Call from time to time to let them know your doing well, but, only share good positive things not negatives which evil spirits prefer. Set boundaries with talking with family on the telephone. If, they begin talking negative towards you, then it’s up to you to end the conversation & tell them why. Also, call down a The Most Precious Blood of Jesus upon yourself – daily, and upon your family – daily, and before/during/after all conversations with them AND bind all the evils spirits from head to foot to include their senses – daily in A.M., and before/during/after all conversations with you!!! Chose life over death!!! Choose to be The Head of Jesus, and not the tail of satan. Chose your words carefully, making sure they bring life to your body, mind & spirit.

      • Thank you indeed, sister Deb!

        Those words are so encouraging and every morning since I understood the error of my way of thinking I say to myself (and to Jesus), that “today I’m of a whole mind” and thank Lord Jesus for it. Sadly my damily did get me into an institution, and as there has been (according to the doctor) only one case in history of a bipolar person free’d from her diagnosis by law they put me back on heavy medication and I’ve had tremendous difficulty reading my Bible and praying as fervently as before.

        *At the moment ignoring, that I’m close to getting kicked out of my apartment with no one to rely on after that. (And I do mean no one, as my old “friends” are still junkies and non-believers and my family’s the one persecuting me).* Update: After making a few calls, a prayer was answered. If nothing gets in the way I am going to see my daughter as well as be able to pay my rent next week. God is good!

        Your message was a blessing for today, today I have meat, raiment and shelter. This is a good and beautiful, sunny day and I thank God Almighty for it.

        Your brother in Christ,
        Matti

  40. Dear Still Man,
    It is a blessing I have come upon your website. This article spoke to me in many ways. I am seeking for your advice on whether or not I am under a generation curse but I am afraid to send you what I have written about my own life. Is there is any other way I might can contact you? I think I might be under a curse.
    Thank you for your time and God Bless you and your ministry,
    HS

  41. Hi Stillman,

    Wow wow wow!!! Jesus is amazing, and may God bless you for your post and website, especially your post on generational curses. Here is my story and I would appreciate your input.

    I was born Christian, baptized at 16, can’t remember when I was saved.

    I dated a Christian man who had commitment issues and we broke up but a year later he came back and proposed to me, I loved him and took him back. I thought I was going to marry him so we had pre-marital sex, a decision I will regret for the rest of my life.

    I became dissilutioned and started partying but still going to church. I met an unsaved man who treated me like a queen and helped mend my broke heart. I prayed for his salvation every single day, at first he agreed to come to churxh, read the Bible and pray with me so I agreed to marry him based on him agreeing to come to church and that if we had kids they would be christian and go to church with me, but he told me that he will never convert. It was such a hard decision for me, I fasted, prayed and called my church elders before making my decision. I know that it was going to be difficult but I trusted that he will be saved because of my prayers.

    Now 7 years later, he is not saved and decided that he is agnostic and will not longer pray or read the Bible with me. This devastated me but I still continue to pray for him and love him. When we got married we both decided that kids was not a big thing for us and we continued, last year my husband decided that he wants kids. I thought about it and said ok let’s. We have been trying for a few months but nothing.

    3 years ago I was diagnosed with rhemathoid arthritis (at 34) and it was a horrible shock to me, I am still angry at the fact that this has happened to me. I have prayed, fasted, my church and family have all been praying for me but still no healing. My dad believes that it was a generational curse and is always binding it and praying for me. I believed that I prayed and broke the curse as well but after reading your post I wonder of I really did it the right way. I also have something called an essential tremor of my head, it is so embarrassing because when I concentrate on something my head starts to shake without me knowing it.

    Back to my husband, we have had a difficult marriage because we don’t see eye-to-eye on our beliefs and our values are so different. He had a very difficult childhood with a distant father and a close bond with his mother. Last year he discovered that he has depresion and it stems from his childhood. Now I found out after I got married that his grandparents dealt in witchcraft and this was blow to me because this is not a world I grew up in or thought anything about. His family and he thinks it’s all a joke and that I shouldn’t take it seriously.

    My husband told me yesterday that his priority is to have a child, this will complete him and help him fix his problems and he can make amends for his horrible childhood. We had a huge fight and he told me that if I can’t give him a child then he will leave me because he wants a child that badly and can’t understand how this is not a big deal for me. He can’t understand how not having a child is not a deal breaker for me.

    Now my husband is a wonderful, caring, kind man who has taken such great care of me. He said alot of things yesterday that hurt me a great deal but was an eye-opener for me. He said that having a child is a dealer breaker for him, but he wants to have a child with me and stay with me. My issue is that if we do have a child it’s going to be difficult because of our opposing beliefs and values, also his family history and depression is an issue for me. Maybe this is why I have been hesitant to have a child with him and maybe this is why I was ok with marrying him, because kids was almost out of the question when we married.

    Yesterday was debating for me, I cried until I had no more tears or energy left. Divorce is unheard of in my family (all christian, God fearing people). My parents will be devastated. I am unsure about what I need to do. This is how I came across your page and it’s blessed me so much. I am taking time to think and pray about my decision. But I know that God loves me, he may not love my decisions but he loves me and my future is bright. I just need to know what that is.

    I also need to be healed, what if my healing is tied to being released for my husband. So many thoughts are going through my head and I need to make a decision.

    Thank you again for being a blessing. I pray that Jesus continues to use you and bless you and your kids.

  42. This is false. You are bearing false witness. Roman Catholics do not worship the Virgin Mary. Our Lord Jesus Christ gave His mother Mary to us to be the spiritual mother of His Church. He did this from the cross, when he told John, His beloved disciple, representing the church, that Mary was to be his mother. The blessed virgin Mary is a saint in Heaven. All the saints in Heaven are the “Church Triumphant”. We on earth are the “Church Militant” engaged in the spiritual battle for our souls. The holy souls in purgatory are the “Church Suffering”, because although they are saved and assured of heaven, they are not yet purged of/detached from their sins. Only that which is pure and holy can enter heaven. Purgatory is a great mercy of God, allowing many more souls to be saved.

    Because Mary and the other saints are in heaven, they help us by praying FOR us. Mary’s prayers are the most powerful because God has exalted her. She is the mother of the KING. Everything she does is directed toward praying for souls, helping lead them to her divine Son, Jesus Christ, and begging God’s mercy for souls. Her motto is, “Do whatever He (Jesus) says.” Yes, you DO want our blessed mother to pray for you! And yes, all generations will call her blessed, for the Almighty has done great things for her, as she said in her Magnificat. This is all in the Bible. Mary is loved and respected by Catholic Christians. She is NOT worshiped! . May God grant you the grace to understand the truth and repent of these falsehoods.

    • If praying to the Virgin Mary were biblical, then the Bible should record at least one person doing it. But the Bible does not document anyone praying to the Virgin Mary. That is because Jesus Christ is our Mediator. Scripture says, “For there is One God and One Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5). Asking the Virgin Mary to pray for you is to usurp the authority of the Lord Jesus.

      You would do well to read our article entitled Two Marys so that you can learn why the Roman Catholic exaltation of the Virgin Mary is unscriptural. God bless you.

      • The error committed in such a categorical rejection as non-Christian any practice that is not literally described in the Bible, is to mistake the Bible for constituting the central and direct substance of the Revelation in the same way as applies in the case of for example the Holy Koran, which, according to the very teaching of that book, represents a direct divine revelation. The Bible is not like that, and the Christian religion is not like that. The Christian Revelation did not manifest as a Book, as with Islam and the Koran, but as Jesus Christ Himself, God made flesh. Christ is the Word in this case, God’s revelation, not a Book. Jesus then institutes a Church, the body of Christ on Earth, and this Church eventually and during the course of the early generations AFTER the ascension of Christ COMPILE a body of writings, including the oral testimonies of the gospels, to make up the Bible. But the Bible (not a unified revelation like the Koran but including pre-Christian revelations and even ritual prescriptions that are no longer valid practices in the context of the Christic revelation!) never says that IT is the sole authority in the religion and that every practice that is not strictly defined within its body of writings must be outside the religion. The Eucharist, for example, is also a part of the Christian revelation, but that doesn’t mean it must be described down to the smallest detail in the Bible in order to be valid. The Bible compilation itself is the result of tradition. Where in the Bible does Jesus say that “I give you the Bible, and here is the list of books that are to be included in it”? Nowhere. And yet it was guided by the divine inspiration of the early Church, just like the Eucharist and other features of the religion, whose central revelation is Christ, not a particular Book and that Book alone. This exaggerated status granted to the Bible might itself become idolatrous if one is not careful. For there are elements included in the Bible that are not compatible with Christianity, just as there are elements passed down to us through other channels of religious transmission outside the Bible that are nonetheless perfectly in the spirit of Christ.

        All of that being said, I am not one to claim that your approach to the Christic path is invalid or fruitless, for I do not believe it is. But you should be careful in condemning as idolatrous, heretical and so forth Christian denominations that have led countless faithful to saintliness, as is highly evident in the case of Catholicism and Orthodoxy.

        And lastly, thank you for writing this article on generational curses that made me think, and contained helpful points, even though I do not agree with all.

        Masturbation should have been included as sexual sin, as it is so very widespread and easier to indulge in for anyone, or fantasies/imaginations for that matter, even unsupported by external pornography. The subtlest level must be guarded. The same applies to looking lustfully at another person on the street or wherever.

        • The Eucharist is a part of the Christian revelation? Where? Not in the Bible my friend. The Eucharist is a piece of bread that Roman Catholics worship (OK adore) as Jesus Christ. This is idolatry of the worst kind. Jesus is the bread that came down from heaven.

          As for the “exaggerated status” of the Bible, I’ll let Scripture speak for itself:

          “Thou hast exalted thy Word above all thy Name” (Psalm 138:2).

          The Lord Jesus has exalted His Word (the Bible) above even His name so that people such as yourself can’t justify their un-Scriptural practices by saying that Jesus is the sole revelation and thereby attempt to diminish the importance of His Word. As a Catholic, you are forced to diminish the importance of the Bible, because by your man-made traditions, you have made the Word of God of none effect.

      • The Still Man,

        I do agree that praying to Virgin Mary is not Biblical; however, I have known true Catholic Christians who would put many Protestants to shame! I was a little closed-off to Catholics before spending a few years in Louisiana in my early 20s, but my opinions changed for the good after that. Those folks were followers of Jesus, the One True God, fascination with the Madonna notwithstanding.

        In my experience, Evangelicals like to run down the Catholics for some of their doctrines. However, I don’t believe any denomination has gotten it 100%. Doctrines are hit and miss, and every Christian group believes they’ve gotten it right. My point is this: If you’ve been around a true believer, no matter what denomination they identify as, you’ll know it, through and through. “You’ll know them by their fruits…” I believe there’s a remnant in most Christians religions. Sometimes more than just a remnant…

        Now, on to another topic: Fortune cookies.

        I will tell you a story. I was 20 years old. I had just eaten an appetizing dinner from the local Chinese restaurant. I’m pretty sure I had the sesame chicken, because that’s pretty much the only plate I used to order. Anyway… as my food digested, I waxed reflective on my lush head of hair… lamenting to my then-girlfriend that I thought I was going bald. I had a very thick head of raven black hair. Being a good girlfriend, she ran her fingers through my thick locks and assured me my hair was as thick as the day we first met. Imagine our shock and awe when I cracked open that fortune cookie and read the following, printed in bold, black type, without embellishment: “You will INDEED go bald.”

        Well, my girlfriend just laughed and laughed at that one, and I cried and cried, LOL. I’m not trying to say I subscribe to the philosophy that fortune cookies are the bees-knees, and I certainly don’t put my faith in them… but the Holy Spirit uses what he has to speak to us, or to tell us a joke, or whatever… God has a sense of humor, too.

        Fortune cookies are what they are: An American invention for Americans who have no idea about Chinese culture. Unfortunately for me, that fortune ended up being true, no matter how I tried to deny it. It’s been almost 16 years, and I will never forget that Chinese dinner for as long as I live, haha. Not “You will go bald.” Oh, no. “You will INDEED go bald.” Come to think of it, maybe I should stop reading fortune cookies after all!!!!

        God bless.

        • A Catholic could never put a true Christian to shame, because a true Christian has been redeemed by the blood of Jesus and has had his sins washed away along with the guilt and shame of those sins. The same cannot be said about the Roman Catholic, however, as Catholics are trying to redeem themselves through the unbloody sacrifice of the mass, penance and good works.

          As for fortune cookies, believe what you will; I have said all I am going to say on the matter.

          • The Still Man,

            Put them to shame with their Biblical acumen. “Study to show thyself approved…” The Catholics I met had definitely studied! More importantly, they trusted the Son for their salvation… at least, according to their testimonies. I guess I should have called them liars and threw stones… I don’t know, man…

            I’m not trying to be unfriendly here… but do you have a sense of humor? The fortune cookie story was just that… a story. Not to be taken too seriously. Sorry if it offended your delicate sensibilities. I doubt our Lord and Savior took Himself so seriously that He couldn’t chat with people who didn’t think exactly like He did–if you take away anything from this exchange, I hope it’s that, but I won’t lose any sleep about it either way.

            I encourage you to understand the difference between walking the straight-and-narrow and being a narrow-minded person… so narrow in your views you cannot have a friendly discussion. They are two very different things. You don’t know everything. Guess what… neither do I!!! Isn’t that amazing? I suppose I’ll just have to trust God to make up for my shortcomings. I pray you’ll do the same.

            God bless you and your efforts.

          • If the Catholics of whom you speak had really studied the Bible, then they would most assuredly no longer have been Catholics, as the Bible and Roman Catholicism are irreconcilable. Now, regarding my sense of humor, you must understand that there is a time and place for everything; and this article on generational curses–a very serious subject–is no place for humor. Take a look at the comments, and you will see that there are some hurting people in the world–many of them Christians–who have no idea why they are suffering so. These people need answers and hope, not comedy.

            Knowing when and when not to be funny is part of the maturation process, and is sometimes called tact, prudence, or discretion. I invite you to cultivate that attribute, as it will serve you well. Thank you for your blessing, and may the good Lord bless you and yours.

    • Ann in Florida,

      I stopped taking this guy seriously when I got to the part about ‘fortune cookies are the devil’. I’m from NC, but I lived in Louisiana for about 4 years in my early twenties. Acadiana, to be exact, where Catholicism is more popular than Southern Baptists. I met some true-blue Catholic Christians in Lafayette, LA… or what I prefer to call Believers, as the term ‘Christian’ is so loosely thrown around these days. Those Catholics put me to shame, really. They knew their Bible better than I did! They were humble and holy… real Christians.

      My point is this: In any denomination, there are believers, and there are unbelievers. Wheat and tares. It’s as simple as that. “You’ll know them by their fruits…” That’s all it boils down to for Catholics, Baptists, Presbyterians, Pentecostals… if you believe and put your trust in Jesus and His commandments, and let the Him work in your life, well, then that’s what matters. Love the Lord God with all your heart, soul, mind; love your neighbor as yourself… the rest will come naturally.

      So don’t let articles like this get you too wound up. These kind of opinions are close-minded and a dime-a-dozen. Let God judge you and your heart, and no one else. As my Pop would so eloquently put it: “Ain’t no one got it all figured out. Not me nor you nor him. So trust God!”

      I found this article researching ‘generational curses’ for my girlfriend. Many of her family members on her mother’s side have been involved in freak ‘fire’ accidents. That is exactly what it sounds like. Her maternal grandfather’s brother died in a house fire in the 80s. Her mother’s brother was horribly burned–3rd degree over 90% of his body in a fire department training snafu when he was in high-school (sometime in the 90s). He has no hair now, and his face is so scarred as to be unrecognizable, compared to what he looked like back then (he was a handsome guy, and now he looks a little like Freddy Krueger, but he’s still a good man). Her grandfather’s sister was burned in a kitchen fire–3rd degree, along her torso, I believe. Someone had a lawnmower explode on them. It’s a long list of people getting burned!

      There’s a plethora of other smaller freak fire accidents involving her mother’s side of the family. Since I love her, I’m trying to find information on generational curses… but wow, I found this article instead detailing the pitfalls of fortune cookies and reading your horoscope!!!! Thankfully I read this before ordering more Chinese delivery!!! Lol.

      I’m not trying to poke too much fun. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. I do find it hard to stomach someone’s opinion when they are not privy to all the facts. I can walk into every denomination on any given Sunday and find a few Believers, and a bunch of non-believers, so it always burns me up when I hear Protestants running down the Catholics–they seem to love to do this, ironic considering Catholicism is probably the oldest living denomination in the world!

      Oh, well. God bless you!

  43. Still Man,

    I discovered this web site after searching for the fruits of Free Masonary. Though I believe a large portion of your site has merit, sadly it devolves into typical Protestant prejudice directed at Catholics. To say that Catholics worship demons is downright absurd and frankly demonic in and of itself. Most so-called Christians love to cite the Bible and its preeminence. Let’s remember that Christianity was well established (around 300 years or so) before the modern day Bible took form. As Catholics we certainly believe in the Holy Bible. In fact, Protestant Christians probably do more to ignore scripture than the Catholics that you apparently despise. You need to examine your own demons before casting aspersions on the One True Faith.
    You can rewrite history all you want but it was the heretical Martin Luther who broke off from the Catholic Church. Look it up: Luther even after he abandoned the Church still believed in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist! The real question is: why don’t you believe? Jesus said “for my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink”. Many left Him because this was too hard for them. (By the way, there are many Eucharistic Miracles…look them up. One being in the mid nineties and actually tested by a cardiologist.) After leaving the Church because of the the papcy’s corruption, Luther feared that instead of one pope , he may have created many “popes” . Exactly how many Protestant branches of Christianity are there? Forty thousand? None of them believe exactly the same dogma and therefore Luther’s prediction of many popes has come true!
    Your comment that praying to Mary is akin to praying to a demon makes your web site lose all credibility. As scripture in Revelations says, “now a great sign appeared in the sky a woman adorned with the Sun, she was standing on the moon and had twelve stars about her head as a crown.” Mary only leads us to Jesus and she is not a substitute for Our Savior.
    Isn’t it interesting that Satanists mock the Catholic Church? They steal the Eucharist(they even know which ones are consecrated ) and hold their Black Masses to mock the Catholic Faith and its Masses. They also mock Mary, St.Joseph, our popes and many of our saints. Why? Why is the Catholic Faith a threat to the devil and his minions? Maybe you should answer that on behalf of “Christians” who hate the Catholic Church. I’ve been to non denominational Churches and the like and the one thing they have in common is their hatred for Catholics. As Jesus said, “you will know them by their fruits(applies to those inside and outside the Church).”
    I am sorry for the tone of this letter, but I could not let your assertions go unchallenged. I could go on longer, but for now I will desist. Please examine your own bias towards the Catholic Faith. I will pray for you and please pray for me.

    • You say that Roman Catholics believe in the Bible, and I don’t doubt they do. But as a Roman Catholic, you don’t dare believe the Bible, because, if you did, then you would have to obey the Bible; and if you obeyed the Bible, then you would have to reject your church’s traditions. That would make you a heretic, Joe, and if you became a heretic, then you would have reason to fear death at the hand of the Roman Catholic nearest to you, even if he or she were family, according to the Council of Lateran. You know this.

      Believing in the Bible: that is, in its existence, is not enough, Joe; you must believe the Bible and obey it, in order to be saved. Roman Catholics affirm that there is one God, yet they do not obey Him or His Word, choosing instead to exalt men. The Apostle James said, “Thou believest there is one God, though doest well; the devils also believe, and tremble” (James 2:19). What did James mean by this? He meant that the devils believe in the existence of Jesus Christ (because they have seen Him), but the devils are still damned and are going to the Lake of Fire because they will never obey the Lord Jesus. It is not enough to merely believe; obedience is better than sacrifice.

      You ask me why as a Protestant, I will not believe in the Eucharist, and I gather that by this you mean that the Eucharist is the “body, blood, soul and divinity” of the Lord Jesus Christ. Well, beside the fact that the Eucharist is obviously a piece of bread, and not the Lord Jesus, there is the troublesome fact that Jesus never commanded us to worship (OK, adore) the Eucharist, because that would be idolatry.

      You cite Jesus’ “bread of heaven” sermon in the synagogue, when he said, “Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, ye have no life in you” (John 5:53) as proof that Jesus ordained the Eucharist. What you don’t know, however, because you dare not read–let alone believe–the Word of God, is that right after that, Jesus told this same congregation:

      “It is the spirit that quickeneth, the flesh profiteth nothing:

        the words that I speak unto you,

      they are spirit and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not.” (John 5:63,64).

      Did you hear that? So, if you believe that the flesh to which Jesus was referring was the Eucharist, Jesus has told you that eating the Eucharist PROFITETH NOTHING, as it is the words that Jesus spoke—THE BIBLE—which you have subordinated to the words and traditions of men, that are spirit and life.

      As for “Eucharistic miracles,” show me one in the Bible—just one. Jesus performed miracles, the prophets performed miracles, and the Apostles performed miracles; but a piece of bread has never performed and will never perform one single miracle. That only exists in Roman Catholic fables and tradition.

      As for the Roman Catholic church being the “one true church” and the Protestant church having thousands of denominations, let me ask you a question: why does the Catholic church have two popes? Isn’t the pope supposed to be the “vicar of Christ?” Doesn’t vicar mean substitute? Are there therefore two substitutes for the Lord Jesus Christ? If so, Why? In case one dies? Can God die? If He cannot, then why would He 1. choose a human, and therefore perishable, substitute, and 2. Why would He choose a substitute for that substitute? Would an All-Wise, All-knowing God choose another human, and therefore, perishable substitute for the first human, and therefore, perishable substitute? In the military, a substitute for a substitute is called a supernumerary, and is chosen in case something happens to the first substitute, the wisdom being “because you never know.” Isn’t God supposed to be All-Knowing? If He is, then why would an All-Knowing God choose a supernumerary? Because He never knows?

      C’mon, Joe. Plain reason alone should be telling you that the Roman Catholic faith makes no sense whatsoever; but if you look at Roman Catholicism in light of Scripture, it is clear as day that Roman Catholicism makes a mockery of the Lord Jesus “and all that dwell in heaven.”

      Finally, Joe, Roman Catholicism is no threat to the devil, because the devil is only threatened by truth. Roman Catholicism supplants the Word of God with the traditions of men, and, in so doing, “makes the Word of God of non effect.” Where’s the truth in that?

    • It is certainly possible, Kalenge. Remember that a person under a generational curse is cursed with the same sin his parents committed (Exodus 20:5). It is worth noting that the so-called Ten Commandments are all generational sins, and that one of those Commandments is to “honor thy father and thy mother (Exodus 20:12). If someone fails to do that, then that person’s children will be cursed with that same sin.

      Now, it is not necessarily a child’s responsibility to take care of his parents–especially if they are able to take care of themselves; but if they are unable to take care of themselves, then the child(ren) certainly should: for that is not only honoring one’s parents in word, but also in deed. 🙂
