But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.” Galatians 3:13 New Living Translation
As a believer, there are so many benefits that we HAVE because of the finished and redeeming work of Christ. It is worthwhile for us to know what these are. I used to read the book of Deuteronomy 28 and I would read about all the blessings. I did not like reading about the curses, they were ugly and nasty and cruel and abhorrent. I didn’t want to know about them. But it is a good thing to know your enemy AFTER you know that he is defeated and that JESUS IS LORD of ALL!!!! Why do I say this? Because there could be something going on in your life that is spiritually and naturally illegal but you are unaware that it is illegal. The only way you will know is if you find out. I often use this example but everyone knows it is illegal to break into someone else’s home but people still do it. The devil is the same way. Jesus has already won the day so we are NEVER fighting FOR VICTORY. We always fight FROM VICTORY. Jesus whipped the devil and then gave the victory to us. How successful can you be when you are fighting a defeated foe? As successful as Jesus in every area of your life. This applies to our children as well. You may not know what the Bible says in regards to your children but please know this: The Bible is The Word Who is Jesus and He has given to us all things pertaining to life and godliness. You do not have to allow satan to have his way in the life of your child because as a righteous person Poppa, God the Father has made specific promises to you regarding your own safety and the safety and peace of your family.
Now there are evil things mentioned under the curse of the law that can happen to people’s children but not to a believer who knows their rights and exercises those right in The Name of Jesus. The Name of Jesus BELONGS to every believer as a part of their eternal inheritance and them being a joint heir with Jesus. Everything that belongs to Jesus now belongs to you. How much does Jesus have? Everything that Poppa, God the Father has.
All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.” John 16:15 NIV
So lets take a look at two specific areas that are listed in the curse of the law so that you can know what your children and you as a child of God are redeemed from.
Your children and your crops
will be cursed. Deuteronomy 28:18 NLT
You will watch as your sons and daughters are taken away as slaves. Your heart will break for them, but you won’t be able to help them. Deuteronomy 28:32 NLT
So this scripture which is in the Old Testament and is part of the curse of the law of which Galatians 3:13 says you ARE REDEEMED from says that this person’s children will be cursed and their crops. Verse 32 goes on to say in Deuteronomy that their sons and daughters will be taken away as slaves (slaves to imprisonment, slaves to captivity to drugs and other things). The curse goes on to reveal that the parent’s heart will break for them but that they will be powerless to help them. I tell you what, if you are a believer that scripture is NOT talking about YOU!!! Ohhhhhhh no! You are the redeemed! You are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Look at what God’s Word says to you who are righteous.
All your children will be taught by the LORD, and your children will have unlimited peace. Isaiah 54:13 God’s Word Translation
A few verses down it says:
But in that coming day
no weapon turned against you will succeed.
You will silence every voice
raised up to accuse you.
These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD;
their vindication will come from me.
I, the LORD, have spoken! Isaiah 54:17 New Living Translation
So you see God said all your children will be taught not just about the Lord but BY THE LORD Himself and great will be the peace of your children even to an unlimited level. Verse 17 goes on to say that no weapon formed against you will succeed. If someone attacks your child they are in essence attacking you. If someone tries to murder you they are trying to murder your children as well. How? By taking away their mother or father and bringing them into grief and pain and destruction and possibly causing the children to blame and turn away from God or never turn to Him by blaming Him for what happened to their parents. This happens more than you know and it is an ancient tactic of the devil. You and your family are connected. You may not even like them but that still does not change your connection. Do you know that God the Father may not like everything you do but He still loves you and you are still His son or daughter? If something happens to you it will affect God the Father Himself. How do I know this. Because of Jesus’s relationship with God the Father and therefore my relationship. You better believe God the Father was not happy when Jesus was beat and spit upon but He knew the good that it would work. Nothing happened to Jesus until it was time. Well maybe its my children’s time. NEVER. Jesus already bore that. Do not turn around and allow your children to bear sickness, disease, drug addiction, abuse or anything else Jesus bore. You are redeemed!!!! Exercise the power and authority over the devil. BELIEVE WHAT JESUS SAID!!!! TAKE WHAT HE HAS GIVEN YOU!!!
Look, I have given you the authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy; nothing will ever harm you. Luke 10:19 Holman Christian Standard Bible
So in the Name of Jesus whatever is going on in your child’s life declare, “I BREAK THE POWER OF THE devil in _______ life and command him to cease and desist with any plans or operations in the life of my child. I declare my child belongs to the Kingdom of God Almighty and great is the peace of my child!! Amen! That’s it! It’s a done deal. Do not vacillate, do not worry about what you see. Do not worry if it ‘looks like’ they keep doing drugs. Jesus’s Name is above every name and the victory is won and that situation is done. Cast the care of it on Jesus because you have already used your king/priest power. The devil knows who you are and more importantly Whose you are. You belong to JESUS and satan has to obey. Don’t let time pull you into the natural. God is not bound by time. He’s bound by His Word that you have spoken so REST!!!!
Now understand, you do not have authority over a persons will and there is still a natural component to this. They have to desire to be free. If they do now you have the legal right to break the power of the devil in their lives. You have authority over demonic spirits but not human spirits. You may need to get the person help in the form of rehab or other things but deal with the root first which is always spiritual.
All the ‘blessed’ to you!!! Shalom!!!
