Breaking Generational Curses & Pulling Down Strongholds

by Vito Rallo

Excerpt from the book:

Chapter One

No One Is Exempt!

CURSES—WHAT A STRONG WORD! IT CONJURES UP
all kinds of thoughts and horrible conditions,
and rightly so! Millions of people
live under them, and, more often than not, they do
not realize it. The Bible clearly gives us instructions
on how to keep from coming under curses! If we
transgress God’s laws, even after being born again,
we will find ourselves struggling with curses. Our
own sin is often the open door that allows Satan to
operate unhindered in our lives. Do not give him
access to your life. The Bible warns us: “Do not give
the devil a foothold” (Eph. 4:27, NIV).

If you recognize a curse that is controlling your
life, deal with it. The sooner you deal with it, the less
entrenched it will become, and the easier it will be to
overcome. To deny or ignore the conditions caused
by curses can be a major stumbling block preventing
victorious living; and many have fallen and not
recovered. Clearly, everyone can be subject to a
variety of curses of one sort or another. Born-again
Christians are not exempt.

If you are a born-again Christian and have accepted
Jesus as Lord and Savior, you may be asking whether
all these curses were broken over your life at the
moment of salvation. When you are born again, you
are forgiven of your past sins. While it is true that the
shed blood of Jesus on Calvary has the power to break
any curses in your life, you need to do your part—take
authority and break each of them one at a time by the
power of the blood for the victory to be complete.

For example, physical healing was also provided
through the atonement of Christ, yet sickness and disease
can still attack us after we are born again.

When that happens, we can receive healing by
applying the blood and claiming the healing effected
by Christ’s atonement, according to Isaiah 53:4–5
and 1 Peter 2:24. In the same way, curses and
strongholds can be broken. Everything Jesus purchased
for us on Calvary can be obtained by faith—
not just salvation and healing!

What Jesus bought for you and I on Calvary
includes much more. It includes salvation, healing,
the fullness of the Spirit (allowing the Holy Spirit to
convict, regenerate, sanctify, anoint, empower, guide,
comfort, illuminate your mind, teach and transform
you), the fruit of the Spirit (according to Gal.
5:22–23), the gifts of the Spirit (according to 1 Cor.
12:1–11) and victory over the world, the flesh, the
devil and all the powers of darkness!
