“The words of the reckless pierce like swords, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”
What you speak gives life, or takes it away. What you release into the physical realm is actually released into the heavens. These curses can be utilized by your enemy and that includes the devil. These curses can affect your soul where your mind may be overcome, the joy sucked out of you, your trust perhaps wavered. Curses cleave into your soul, only to be a root of bitterness and or pain in the future. At the present time you may feel "free" from the curse, yet a memory-reminder-future thought may actually reveal that you are not healed yet.
So are you cursing others? No, Not I! Well, I have. I know we all have. This becomes a time when we begin to think before we speak. We begin to investigate our hearts and minds. Investigate the soul and make sure there is nothing impure inside you.
"for you know in your heart that many times you yourself have cursed others."
Jesus actually taught us what a curse looks like when he cursed the fig tree in Mark 11:14
“May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” Now of course if you don't know this story, they came back upon this same fig tree and sure enough the Tree was dying FROM THE ROOTS!
The tree withered from the roots and this is exactly what happens in our "roots"="Soul"
His disciples pointed out the withered Fig Tree and Jesus said, surely if you believed in God and had no doubt in your heart but believes that what you say will happen, it will be done for you . A curse or a blessing.
How can I curse those whom God has not cursed? How can I denounce those whom the Lord has not denounced? (Numbers 23:8) God spoke this message to Balaam's to give back to Balak about doing a curse that is from human effort. What this provides for is an insight that as much as a curse can try to attack our soul, we are truly protected in the spirit by God! It goes back to the best spiritual warfare that we have "No Weapon formed against me....shall PROSPER!" .....No doubt the curse happened and the soul feels it, God is going to protect you from the full curse. What this involves is a short lived duration of suffering through the curse. Through Christ you will overcome with strength, perseverance and no Root of Bitterness will be left defile you.
How we might be cursing our Children, Husbands, Ministry, Church, Body of Christ, Finances, Situations.
1) Speaking negatively
2) Speaking hurt and pain
3) Making judgements
5) Proclaiming hopelessness and faithlessness
6) Claiming and accepting Failures
7) Word/Bondage curses like "You are stupid, you'll never marry, you'll never do anything with your life, you'll never do this....Never accomplish that...you are lazy, bad, worthless, scumbag, trash, whore, drunk, addict, you'll always be a criminal" You get the point!
Bless your Life (God, spouse, children, home, finances, ministry, church etc) we do that by speaking LOVE, we build up, edify and encourage one another. We spur each other on and we carry each others burdens. Instead of extending a foot pushing them down into a grave, extend your hand and lift them up!
If you are cursing others, STOP! It's not easy, it's going to take commitment with the working of the Holy Spirit. Commitment & Surrender to make that Change is the Key to manifesting the Holy Spirit Power of Transformation!
Lastly, I would never leave you without telling you the GREAT News! Jesus is the BONDAGE Breaker! If you feel someone has a word curse that seeped into your soul and heart, then we can ask Jesus to cut that soul tie!
Jesus, we exalt your mighty and powerful name. You are the Living God with all power and Authority. We love you for who you are and what you are so intimately able to do for us. Jesus we ask right now to cut those soul ties, erase those memories and blot out those dark spots in my soul from all the hurt that others have cursed onto me. I forgive them Lord because you forgave me! Set me Free Jesus and set them free. I don't want to make this just about me, Lord. Let's make this about you and the work of setting them free in the spirit world too! Free them from any pain or roots of bitterness that linger in their soul. We love you Jesus, Thank You!
All Glory to the Father! ~Amen!
