I know it is very hard to believe that the Lord brings curses upon our lives, IF we don’t obey his commandments. Today lets look at two curses that the book of the law teaches us about.
HEREDITARY FAMILY SICKNESS:
STEP 1 – Read Deuteronomy 28:21 and write this down in your Prayer Journal. Underline the words that stand out for you.
“The Lord shall make the pestilence stick to you until he has consumed you of the land that you are entering to take possession of. The lord shall strike you with wasting disease and with fever, inflammation and fiery heat, and with drought and with blight and mildew, they shall pursue you until you perish.”
Some family illnesses are recurring. Recurring sickness and disease is the indication of a family curse. Notice the terms “pestilence” and consumption. The curse releases sickness of all kinds. Consumption is a wasting lung disease, emphysema, and lung cancer. Lung cancer is the number three killer. God also mentions fever and inflammation. These indicate a curse that is evidence of arthritis. Inflammation of the brain leads to Alzheimer’s disease. Then we read the term “extreme burning”. Extreme burning is all sorts of strange fevers.
CHRONIC WOUNDS CURSE:
“The Lord shall strike you with boils of Egypt, and with tumors and scabs and itch of which you cannot be healed”.
Clearly he didn’t leave any disease out of these curses. He also declared, every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of the law. “them will the Lord bring upon thee until thou be destroyed”.
I seriously got goosebumps the first time I read these curses. I couldn’t understand why would the Lord bring curses upon his people. WHY?? And I realised this is God’s way of disciplining his children. He is a very jealous God and he wants us to serve him alone. However, know that if you are obedient, this curse will never enter your family. That is the beauty of OBEDIENCE, this law frees you from everything. Read the passage of what happens to you when you obey HIM.
