Who Declared the First Blessing & Curse?

“God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good. God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”  There was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.
“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. God blessed them; and God said to them, ” Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”Genesis 1:22-28
God is the first cause of everything that is good.  In the first week of creation, we see that God put a spiritual blessing upon living things: all animals, birds, bugs and fish; then He put a spiritual blessing upon man whom He had created in His image.  A blessing carries with it a permanent institution of life and liberty, which carries on for hundreds and even thousands of years.  

We are so sophisticated today, that we have lost the extraordinary understanding of what blessings and curses produce.  Many people, including church people, falsely believe that these things are not real, and that we operate our lives in a reality that we can only see with our eyes. 

Following the narrative in the Creation account, God then issued a warning of a curse to Adam saying, “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.” Genesis 2:16-17.  Here, God points to the tree of good and evil, and warns Adam that a curse of death will come upon him if he eats from that tree.  This is the first curse uttered in the Bible, and both blessings and a curse were given prior to the first seventh day.  There are three general causes of blessings and curses.  The first comes from God and His Word, the second comes from us violating God’s Word, and the third comes from humans uttering or declaring blessings or curses over someone or something.  
For eating of the tree that they were not to eat from, God utters a curse upon men, a curse upon women, and a curse upon the serpent, the devil.  They are very specific curses.  To understand the concept of blessings and curses, one must look at the way that they both operate.  Some blessings and curses are visible instantly, while most operate over long periods of time. The descriptions of both can be seen operating in Scripture and manifesting in positive and negative ways.

In Genesis 12, God spoke both a blessing and a curse concerning Abraham and his descendants, “And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; and so you shall be a blessing; And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse.  And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”  It was through the decendants of Abraham that Jesus was born.  Jesus is a blessing to all those who accept Him as Saviour and Messiah.  And, through Jesus we can receive the same protections that were given to Abraham! 

“Therefore, be sure that it is those who are of faith who are sons of Abraham.  The Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel beforehand to Abraham, saying, “ALL THE NATIONS WILL BE BLESSED IN YOU.” So then those who are of faith are blessed with Abraham, the believer…in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles…”  Galatians 3:7-9,14a.  We as Christians have the ability to receive both blessings and curses into our life.  

Think of blessings and curses this way.  They are a long arm of protection over you, your family or where you live.  A curse on the other hand is like a long chain from the past, that can hold you and your family back from prospering and growing correctly.  Some examples of a curse over families would look like, but is not limited to the following; consistant early deaths, children dying early, men dying early, generational alcoholism or diseases, and generational poverty.  Occasional problems occur in every family, and that is because we live in a fallen world.  But, when it becomes a pattern over long time periods in family lines, it may be a symptom of a curse or curses placed there by a violation of God’s Word, or a curse spoken over a family, possibly hundreds of years ago.

There are many ways that you, a person you know, or even a nation, can come under a curse.  Any violation of the Ten Commandments can produce a curse down to the third and fourth generations. (See Exodus 20:5, 34:7)  The greatest of these is to worship other gods, or have idols. In Exodus 20:3-4 God said, “You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.”  The result is that when nations practice the worship of false gods, a curse can be upon that nation, and when a family practices witchcraft, it can bring a curse on that family line.  But, there is a way to break these ancestral curses off of your life and off your family.  The three steps below would be a very good thing for you to do.
First, confess Jesus as your Lord and Savior.  Second, there are some things that you probably should repent of.  Third, as stated in Galatians 3, you must have faith that Jesus became a curse for you in your place.  With that, you also must have faith that the blessing of Abraham has come to you in place of the curse!   

The solution is simple.  Read out loud this prayer below.

“Father, I believe that you are the Eternal God, and the Creator of the entire universe.  I believe that You sent Your Son Jesus to this earth to pay the price for my sins and take my place as a sacrifice.  You Lord Jesus my Messiah, I believe that You are the Son of God, and that You are the only way to the Father.  I believe that You died on the cross for my sins; and that You rose again from the dead.  
I believe that because of my faith in You, that when You were on the cross, You became a curse for me in my place, curses I received for breaking the Father’s commandments.  I believe that because You were made a curse, that I am redeemed from the curse of sin and disobedience, and receive the Blessing of Abraham into my life.

I trust the Word of God, that You paid the price for my sins and all those of my ancestors.  I know that whenever I remember Your work at the cross, that Your mercy and forgiveness comes to me by faith.

I ask You to forgive and blot out any sins committed by me, or by my ancestors, that exposed me to any form of curses, sickness, disease and death.  And those who have spoken curses against me to harm me, I forgive them, as the Father has forgiven me.

I renounce all contact with Satan, or with occult practices, or with unscriptural secret societies. If I have any contact with objects that link me to these things, I will destroy them right away.

Because You Jesus choose to become my curse, and with the authority that You have given me as a son of God, I release myself from every curse that has even come upon me or affected me in any way. In the mighty name of Jesus.  Amen.”

I invite you to listen to the messages that I have been giving on this subject of blessings and curses.  They will increase your faith and set you free.  Watch them from our YouTube channel using the links below, or get them from our ROKU, Spotify or Vimeo channels.  They are free, so share them with your family and friends as well.  
Also, stand with me for revival to come to this ministry and to this country.  I am praying for you daily!
