Dealing with Daddy’s Enemies

Vladimir Savchuk Blog 13 Comments

Many years ago, I purchased a rundown rental property, to create passive income. The property was not managed well by the previous owners. The house needed renovation and the land required a lot of work. There wasn’t any grass, only weeds. The weeds were not planted by me, and I grew frustrated seeing all those weeds and no grass. The previous owner left a lot work to do. Instead of blaming the previous owner for not doing his job, I, slowly but surely, applied lawn care chemicals to kill the weeds, which caused the grass to flourish. By the time the property was sold, the lawn was green and abundant. I passed on a very beautiful lawn to the next owner.

Maybe you had parents who did not deal with some issues, and consequently, these issues got passed onto you. Scripture does not tell us to blame others, but to resist the Devil and deal with the root of the issue.

Generational curses are passed down through the generations, with the same recurring problems and troubles that all of our previous ancestors experienced. Click To Tweet

When Solomon inherited the throne from his dad, King David, he also inherited some enemies his father did not deal with. I really love how David warned Solomon regarding those enemies, however, Solomon still had to deal with the enemies. King David died but his enemies were still around and caused problems for Solomon.

Demons and curses do not die with people; instead, they continue to afflict the succeeding generations. Solomon knew that before he could establish his kingdom, he had to remove his daddy’s “demons.” Unfortunately, not all of us are privileged to have parents that are transparent enough to inform us of certain bad habits and traits. Thus, we will have to confront these enemies, in our own lives, because they were not dealt with by our parents. Solomon‚ considered the wisest man on earth‚ makes it his first priority to deal with his father’s adversaries, before building the temple in his kingdom. As a result, King Solomon exiled some and executed others, as the Scriptures confirm, “thus the kingdom was established in the hand of Solomon” (1 Kings 2:46).

When you execute and exile generational curses, you will then establish yourself in the blessings of God. Click To Tweet

The Bible describes it as “iniquity of the fathers” (see Numbers 14:18). For example, Abraham had a father who worshipped idols (see Joshua 24:2). Coming from a past of occultic practices, Abraham faced some issues; one of them was fear and lying‚ he lied about his wife. Abraham’s son, Isaac, lied about his wife as well. Then Abraham’s grandson lied about his birthright, and his great grandchildren lied about what happened to Joseph. Furthermore, lying was not the only generational issue that was passed on, many of their wives were afflicted with barrenness.

When we are born, many traits get passed down from our parents through their genetics. For example, the color of our hair, the color of our eyes, our skin tone, and many other physical features. Moreover, character traits also get passed on to the next generation. Statistics confirm that we are 10 times more likely to drink if our parents were alcoholics.

We inherit bad traits through our parents' genes, but they lay dormant and are activated by our choices and associations. Click To Tweet

This principle applies to both generational blessings and generational curses. Although, certain traits and tendencies are passed on through our parents’ genes, it does not mean they have to be activated. Negative experiences, bad company, and wrong choices are what activate negative genetic traits. When we surround ourselves with believers, fill our minds with the Word of God and make choices that honor the Lord,thennegative things that are inherited by our parents will not be activated.

We must understand that we will carry the punishment for our ancestor’s choices (see Ezekiel 18:2).

  1. Wow this so real sometimes we ignore how true this is and how bad well affects us, and our children, I had a dream were I was on the back of my house in Mexico and it was my grandpa little land and he had trees and I was there kneeling down and it was other ladies too trying to pull weeds and when I was doing it I thought to my self this people is taking there time and i want to get them all out and quick from the root i didn’t want any to stay and I knew i had this feeling inside of me to make sure that I finish my job well I didn’t want any of this weeds inside the soil and I was making sure they were pull out all the way from the root,,

  2. Good explanation of the problem! Thankfully, Jesus took our curses. “Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree.” So in Jesus we can be set free from all the curses against us by exchanging our curses for His blessings. Identify your curses, then give them to Jesus who took them on the cross for you. By identifying with Him in His death we die and all the curses die too! So now the life we live we live to God for He lives in us! Hallelujah!

    1. YES YES YES!
      All curses were LEGALLY ended on the Calvary. Today we have to live out of that reality and see it manifest in our every day life. More of a mental battle, not spiritual war.

  3. I was excited on reading your article that’s when I just started reading blessings and curses by Derek Prince and breaking generational curses by Marilyn Hickey. Praise God I am on the right track !

    1. These are great books that you mentioned. I also read LISTEN TO ME SATAN by Carlos Annacondia, great book on spiritual warfare.

  4. This is explicit! It shed a lot of light into my heart. Having grown up in a traditional church that taught it’s impossible to obliterate generational curse, I’ve experienced the power of those lies that leads to confusion, hopelessness, etc. I am so thankful that the body of Christ is rising up and declaring truth in our day and age. Thank you for blessing us!

    1. Yes Xan.
      Everyone who says generational curses are not real, believes in generational blessings. Generational blessings can’t exist without the opposite being real.
      It’s true that they are ended positionally in Christ but so is our sinful nature and all sickness. Now, that victory from the cross has to manifest in our physical realm.

  5. Praise God for your ministry Vlad !!!! Praise God for hungry generation prayers and helping many many people have freedom in Christ !!!! Amen !!!!! Blessings blessings blessings !!!!!
    Please pray for my daughter Miroslava …. she have to be delivered…. Oh Lord mercy be to her !!!!!

  6. Thanks so much for this post,I have come to realize that I am just struggling to make ends meet in my life just as I saw my parents struggling when we were growing up.They struggling with povety and taking us to sch was a problem,putting food on the table was a big issue and paying rent was out of their reach,same to me now all this things applies to me,it was past on to us by our parents since even my brother & Sister is in the same circumstances.I do thank God for He has brought me along ur path that I & my family may receive deliverance in Jesus name.
    Kindly pray for us.

  7. Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.”
    Galatians 3:13

    Verse 13 is written in the past tense, whereas Galatians 3:10 is written in the present tense:

    For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.”

    If Jesus broke the curses, how is it those of whom Paul was referencing in the present tense could be under a curse? Verse 13 does say Jesus became the curse, but it doesn’t say He broke any curses. Moreover, I cannot find a single example of Jesus or the apostles breaking any curses, yet we read that Jesus issued many curses.

    If Jesus did not break any curses why would anyone else?
