Is Your Family Cursed?
Pastor Larry Huch talks about his personal experience with family curses and how he'd like to help the Kennedys.
Right when I started writing this book, John F. Kennedy Jr. was killed in a plane crash, and every magazine had on its cover "The Kennedy Curse." Before and after President Kennedy's death, there were others who died before their time. There's a force in their lives that is bringing destruction to the family. Why do so many people in that family die prematurely or have serious trouble? It's not because they're bad people. This is a spiritual transfer. If I could get to one of the heads of the Kennedy family, and we could agree that this is a spiritual curse and realize that the power of God can break it, this family could be set free forever.
We tend to think of curses as mere superstition, something we've progressed beyond in the modern world.
Many religions and cultures know that there are curses. In Italy, you can have a curse put on your family. In Australia and Africa, they believe that curses exist. I've been asked by several countries in Africa to come and teach about recognizing and breaking curses. There can even be a curse on a nation. A group of pastors in Ireland invited us over to break the curse on that country. They said, "This will stop our wars." In April, I'm going to teach in Israel, in the Middle East. People hate each other generation after generation, and they don't know why.
So how do you break a family curse?
First, understand that thereis
a curse affecting your family--whether it's divorce, illegitimacy, suicide, or premature death. Recognize that this destructive pattern exists.
Second, be aware that you're not a bad person. This is something you've inherited. It's not your fault.
Know that God loves you. He isn't mad at you. Then you can break the curse by saying, "I come in agreement with you that the negative spirit is broken, and in its place I receive the positive." If there's anger, you see yourself receiving peace; if there's addiction, you receive freedom.
This is crucial: When a vessel is empty, it has to be filled up. We're clay vessels that hold the spirit of life. When we rid ourselves of bad habits, we have to replace them with God. We go to marriage counseling, to smoking programs, and try to get rid of the bad. But we don't know how to fill it with a positive spirit. That negative spirit sees your vessel is empty, and it comes back in seven times worse. You've seen with dieting--people lose weight and then gain it all back, plus 20 pounds more.
