Are we punished for sins of our fathers and are there generational curses and can they be broken?

There are absolutely generational curses, in fact we still live under a curse that is upon the earth because of the sin of Adam and Eve.

There are also curses that affect us even through family issues, and it is well documented that families with histories of abuse, alcoholism, etc can pass this from one generation to the next.

The GOOD news, the generational curses can be lifted by the blood of Jesus Christ and His redeeming work on Calvary’s tree. The Bible clearly states:

Galatians 3:13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

It is not just the curse of the Old Testament law, it is from family curses of abuse, witchcraft, addiction, etc.

We must turn our suffering and pain to Jesus and ask Him to bring healing to ourselves first, and then forgive even those who hurt you. It is not easy, but it is POWERFUL!

I know a young woman who was adopted at a very early age and because of alcoholism and sexual abuse that had been passed on from generation to generation she herself was a victim even in the home of those who loved her enough to adopt her. She could have been bitter or vengeful, or fall into these same curses. Instead, she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal savior and was filled with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Today, the curses are broken and her own family members have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior because of the power of Jesus blood and the act of surrender and forgiveness this young woman demonstrated.

You will also be interested to know this woman is the one who constructed the site for my father and I and it is because of her your question is being answered.

Oh the power of Jesus blood! He became my sin so that I might live.
