This is how I understand it.
There is a verse that is repeated 3 times, first in Deuteronomy 24:16
The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the
children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death
for his own sin.
The others are 2 Kings 14:6 and 2 Chronicles 25:4
For generational curses to be passed down there has to be a door.
The other scripture that is clear is in Exodus 20: 12 “Honor thy father and
thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God
And Ephesians 6:1-3 “Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.”
Honor thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)
That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
Now the key to breaking generational curses is to repent for not honoring
parents by judging them.
We are not the judge of our parents, we know what they did, but do we know
Back to the The Trees.
The day I was born again by the Spirit I became a brand new person,
2 Corinthians 5:17. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
Because I have not honoured my parents in the old nature, an issue will come
up soon after I received the new nature. (A speed bump)
At that moment I have the tree of life to go to for direction, if I do and
obey the curses are broken, have no hold or power.
If I go back to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, (Right and
wrong) I lock myself back into the old nature and the curses become
activated again and I put myself under their control.
Counsellors will take you back in the old nature to try and find the key,
when the key is always found in the new nature.
Counsellors tried to get the old nature sanctified, that is not scriptural,
no where does it tell me to sanctify the old, what it does tell me is to
walk in the new and the old one is crucified as long as I do.
This is radical, this is walking by the Spirit which is what we should be
If I do not steal as obedience to law, my heart is not changed, and I am not
walking by the Spirit.
When walking by the Spirit I do not want to steal, cheat, lie commit
adultery, because the Holy Spirit does not want to do those things.
I do not want to judge my parents or any one, all I will desire is to love
them. Love never fails 1 Corinthians 13:8.
True believers are strangers here on earth, this is not our home or
destination, here we have no continuing city, patriotism is not of Father
God for the Spirit directed believer.
All we have is relationships, first with Father God through Jesus by the
Spirit and then with fellow man starting with Parents, Husband/Wife,
children, and fellow man.
Pray the above will bring spiritual understanding which is far from where
most believers are at, very sad to say.
The problem is that few believers understand the spiritual kingdom we are
We are spiritual beings, having an earthly experience.
