 Generational Curses

The Sin of Iniquity & the Sin of Transgression:

How to Break the Curse!

Sins of the Fathers

Sin=Missing the mark

Sin of Transgression=Ignorance, Unintentional 

Sin of Iniquity=Rebellion, Intentional 

  Deuteronomy 30:19

“I have called the heavens and the earth as witnesses today against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore you shall choose life”  Exodus 34:7 watching over kindness for thousands, forgiving crookedness and transgression and sin, but by no means leaving unpunished(1), visiting the crookedness of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”Footnote: 1This is confirmed in Numbers 14:18, and in Jeremiah 30:11. Jeremiah 23

Sins of the Fathers

Deuteronomy 28 discusses the curse of iniquities to the 3rd and 4th generation

This study/teaching is done in conjunction with Rabbi Ralph Messer's teaching on Bitter Root Judgments as a foundation and has been an ongoing research project. All information is founded on Scriptural Truths as referenced in the governing Laws of Yahweh Who gave them as instruction to His prophet Moses to give to the people who are set apart to the One, True and Living God of Israel. In our endeavor to seek for deeper Truths we compiled this information that we found through television ministry, telephone ministry and personal contact ministry. The results that we found were astounding on a very broad spectrum.

The following curses are listed in gold and blue the fruit of these are listed in bold lettering beneath them and the possible root causes are listed under the Scriptural references and may vary depending upon the status of the person breaking the Command. Remember the priest always paid the highest price for sin: Luke 12:47-48

“And that servant who knew his master’s desire, and did not prepare, nor did according to his desire, shall be beaten with many stripes.  “But he who did not know, yet did what deserved flogging, shall be beaten with few. And everyone to whom much is given, from him much shall be demanded. And to whom much has been entrusted, from him much more shall be asked." 

Generational curses are passed from one generation to the next not always in order by man’s standards, but may be passed in many different ways. As in the diagram below:


As you can see from the diagram the sin that you reap is not always your own; it may have been passed down through your DNA from a previous generation. They can also skip a generation as the Scripture states in Exodus 34:7 that Father will visit the sins to the 3rd and 4th so sometimes the curse will pursue the 3rd and 4th skipping the 2nd generation. In many cases the sin will entrap and overtake the individual during the 3rd or 4th generation so that the curse will continue down the generations.

Deuteronomy 28:15

But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the YHVH thy Elohim, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

Deuteronomy 4:5 & 6

Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the YHVH my Elohim commanded me that you should do so in the land whither you go to possess it. Keep therefore and do [them]; for this [is] your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation [is] a wise and understanding people.

Deuteronomy 28:58 – 61

If thou will not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou may fear this esteemed and fearful name, Yahweh; Then Yahweh will make your plagues wonderful, and the plagues of your seed, [even] great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance. Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou was afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee. Also every sickness, and every plague, which [is] not written in the book of this law, them will Yahweh bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.


Deuteronomy 4:26 – 28

I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that you shall soon utterly perish from off the land where unto you go over Jordan to possess it; you shall not prolong [your] days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed. And Yahweh shall scatter you among the nations, and you shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither Yahweh shall lead you. And there you shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.  


Hosea 4:6 

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shall be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy Elohim, I will also forget thy children.

Power and Authority in His Name

Luke 10:17-21

And the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Master, even the demons are subject to us in Your Name.”  And He said to them, “I saw Satan falling out of the heaven as lightning.  “See, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and none at all shall hurt you. 0 “But do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names have been written in the heavens.” In that hour יהושע (Yahshuah) exulted in the Spirit and said, “I praise You, Father, Master of the heaven and of the earth, that You have hidden these matters from clever and learned ones, and did reveal them to babes. Yea, Father, because thus it was well-pleasing in Your sight.


Deuteronomy 4:29 - 31

And if you shall seek YHVH your Elohim from there, then you shall find Him, if you seek Him with your whole heart, and with all your soul, in your distress, when all these things have found you, in the latter days, then you shall return to YHVH your Elohim, and shall listen to His voice. For YHVH your Elohim is a merciful Yah. He will not forsake you, nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.  

Ezekiel 18:2 – 9 

“What do you mean when you use this proverb concerning the land of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are blunted’?  “As I live,” declares the Master יהוה, “you shall no longer use this proverb in Yisra’ĕl.  “See, all beings are Mine, the being of the father as well as the being of the son is Mine. The being that is sinning shall die.  “But if a man is righteous and shall do right-ruling and righteousness, if he has not eaten on the mountains, nor lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Yisra’ĕl, nor defiled his neighbour’s wife, nor comes near a woman during her uncleanness, if he does not oppress anyone, does return to the debtor his pledge, does not commit robbery, does give his bread to the hungry and covers the naked with a garment, if he does not lend on interest or take increase, turns back his hand from unrighteousness, executes right-ruling in truth between man and man, if he walks in My laws, and he has guarded My right-rulings in truth – he is righteous, he shall certainly live!” declares the Master יהוה.


 John 12:5-6 

“Why was this perfume not sold for three hundred pieces of silver and given to the poor?” And he said this, not because he was concerned about the poor, but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and he used to take what was put in it. John 13:26-27 יהושעanswered, “It is he to whom I shall give a piece of bread when I have dipped it.” And having dipped the bread, He gave it to Yehuḏah from Qerioth, son of Shimon.  And after the piece of bread, Satan entered into him. יהושע, therefore, said to him, “What you do, do quickly.”


John 14:1-3

“Let not your heart be troubled. Believe in Elohim, believe also in Me. “In My Father’s house are many staying places. And if not, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I shall come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, you might be too.
