Word curses recorded in the Bible have all led to spiritual or physical troubles. In secular superstitious circles, curses are said to bring “bad luck”. Praise God that His Word shows us how to recognize and break curses spoken over our lives.
God’s Word warns us against cursing other people, because it brings fiery judgement against us. The tongue has the power of spiritual life and death.
Matthew 5:22 NLT But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell.
Proverbs 18:21 ESV Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.
The good news is that when Jesus Christ died on the cross, He became a curse for us so that we may live life abundantly through the Holy Spirit, instead of suffering the spiritual or physical troubles we deserve because of our wayward hearts.
Galatians 3:13-14 ESV Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us — for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree” — so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.
John 10:10 ESV The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
