1. Why Do People Take Drugs?
This lesson has been written for the serious Christian. It is not written for those who want to follow Jesus only when the going is fun or easy, nor those who believe possessions are the proof of their successful walk with God. It is not for those who do not want to persevere or suffer persecution, but for those who want to endure to the end.
We see numerous people coming to Christ and in a few months they are back out in sin again. They are so hopeless and sad; the problem lies in ignorance. They do not know about curses and demons, and they do not know what to do about their problems. In I Cor. 9:24-26 We are instructed to run our race so as to receive the eternal prize. We are in serious training of studying the Bible and putting its precepts into our life. Verse 26: Therefore I do not run uncertainly - without definite aim. I do not box as one beating the air and striking without an adversary. We must study our enemy and his tactics enough to recognize him and know how to destroy his works in us.
What I really see, is the opposite of these instructions. I see myself and almost all Christians living in a fantasy world. There God is the great red santa in the sky who looks after you and dumps all His riches on you just because you say you believe Jesus died for you. Yet the Bible tells us clearly that we must keep all His Commandants to receive all His Blessings. There are no short cuts to mature spirituality. We simply must follow instructions.
I was told that getting saved would solve all my problems, but I seemed to have more problems after salvation than before. In reality, getting saved does solve all our problems. More accurately or realistically stated, getting saved gives us the right to begin to untangle the mess we and our ancestors have made of our life. Most people (if they are honest with themselves and God) have problems in their lives which they cannot seem to conquer after becoming Christian. Often they become very discouraged and give up. One of the problems is that we have unrealistic expectations of the Christian life and how to live it. Just a careful reading of the Bible will show us many mistakes in teaching and many things we hope we have been taught. Most of our problems come from wanting to have an easy and exciting life. Yet, just a casual reader will begin to notice that those twelve men who walked with Jesus didn't have life easy neither did they have fine possessions. Most ended their lives as martyrs, yet each one contributed to the success of every Christian's life.
Each one of us would do well to seriously consider this verse, it is self explaining. Therefore, my dear ones, as you have always obeyed (my suggestions), so now, not only (with the enthusiasm you would show) in my presence but much more because I am absent, work out (cultivate, carry out to the goal, and fully complete) your own salvation with reverence and awe and trembling (self-distrust, with serious caution, tenderness of conscience, watchfulness against temptation, timidly shrinking from whatever might offend God and discredit the name of Christ) Phil. 2:12. These are also good suggestions for maintaining deliverance and maturing in the Christian life.
While it is true that Hebrews 12 gives us a glowing account of the faith of Abraham, reading about his blunders and total lack of faith on some occasions will help us see a better balance. By the time he became strong in faith he was rather old.
I have been in churches for most of my fifty seven years. I have been very discouraged with my own Christian life, and the Christian life lived by pastors and older Christians. I never completely left the church or Christian life, yet I have had times when I was not very interested at all. Even at these times, I was not out in sin; my sin was disinterest and ignorance. I have witnessed the same thing happening to others; many of whom go back to the world never to return to the church.
I would ask pastors why someone who was on fire for the Lord went back to the world. I would usually get an answer something like this, They just didn't love the Lord enough or They just didn't have it in them. I always wondered what it was and worried if I had enough of it.
My own life was filled with attitudes and actions that were not pleasing to me, and I knew they could not please God. No amount of grief over them seemed to change anything. I followed what my church taught which was to repent, rededicate my life, and hope to make it through by the skin of my teeth. After thirty years of this process, you feel like giving up; it seems the only reasonable solution to the problem.
It took the death of an only son to get me to set my heart like flint after God and to give up trying to please man. I turned to the Bible as my only hope, and to begin to read it and believe it just as it was stated not as my denomination interpreted it. Then I began to see that many ideas I had received from my denomination were wrong or even outright lies. I would have to change my own ideas and life because the denomination would not change. Consequently, I found myself receiving the left foot of fellowship. I was never taken before the church as I should have been and my disagreements heard by the body of Christ. I found that the church leaders did not follow the direction in the Bible, the very manual they claimed to believe and teach. I couldn't understand why they wanted me to follow it either.
Not many Christians have ever heard of having a curse. Beginning in the Old Testament, God gives us information on both blessing and cursing. Even if we do not like to think about it, God is the boss and has the right to say how his kingdom will be run. In Deuteronomy, blessing and cursing are explained to the children of Israel.
Where and when did curses begin for the human race? There seem to have been no curses on the human race before Adam and Eve disobeyed. In Genesis 3:14-19 we find the first curse. It was on the serpent for beguiling Eve. The next was to Eve. Verse 16: I will greatly multiply your grief and your suffering in pregnancy and the pangs of childbearing; with spasms of distress you will bring forth children. Yet your desire and craving will be for your husband, and he will rule over you. To see if this curse is still in effect, ask any wife and mother. Pain in childbearing is not something that women suffer alone; her husband suffers emotionally at this time too.
The next was to Adam. Verses 17-19: The ground is under a curse because of you; in sorrow and toil shall you eat (of the fruits) of it all the days of your life, Thorns also and thistles shall It bring forth for you, and you shall eat the plants of the field. In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread until you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you shall return. It is so today. The ground is cursed because man gave heed to his wife and obeyed her against God's commandments. Women suffer as they watch the hard, back-breaking or stressful work of their husbands. And so began the struggle that all men and women endure. Even while many men do not farm the soil to feed the family, all will admit that they have many stresses and trials while trying to earn a living.
Just as these curses are still in effect, so are all the others which were issued later. Curses should be dealt with according to Biblical instructions. Those which are passed down the family line for generations will be in effect until they run their course or the sin is repented of, all offending forbearers are forgiven, demons called out, and the life and mind disciplined to Biblical standards. You will have to change your attitude toward sin, continue reading the Bible and putting it into action in your daily life.
WHAT IS A CURSE?
Scripture about the curse of the bastard and incest - A person begotten out of wedlock shall not enter into the assembly of the Lord; even until his tenth generation shall his descendants not enter into the congregation of the Lord (Deut. 23:2).
BLESSINGS AND CURSES
Blessings and curses are results. They are the consequences of action we take, Gal. 6:7-8. We all live with the results of our actions. Blessings are the result of obeying God. Incorrect thoughts lead to incorrect actions (sins or omissions) which often bring a curse on the one sinning and sometimes on future generations. (Prov. 23:7, Mt. 15:19, Phil 4:8) There is a blessing for every verse in the Bible that you obey. There is a curse for every verse in the Bible that you disobey. Curses are the result of obeying the Devil - disobeying God. If you obey half of the Bible, you are half blessed and half cursed. Decide to follow the whole Bible, not just a selected part of it.
HOW DO CURSES TAKE EFFECT?
Curses take effect when you or your ancestors have committed certain acts which are contrary to the Word of God. This is an act of sin which then brings curses on you and your descendents. The demons will then try to perpetuate the curse for all remaining generations of descendents. These curses will be on every child as soon as it is conceived. In some cases it seems demons have been able to enter the child in the womb at conception. The child enters life with characteristics which are demonic. The world would say that the child inherited this characteristic from his ancestors. What was inherited was curses which allow demons a right to be passed down through the blood line.
According to Strongs Concordance, there are several ways we curse and are cursed. A curse has been defined as: uttering a wish of evil against one; to imprecate evil; to call for mischief or injury to fall upon; to execrate, to bring evil upon or to; to blast, vex, harass or torment with great calamities. We have found that even the wrong kinds of prayer and laying on of hands, or prayers at a distance, have resulted in hurtful and dismaying results with the effects of a curse. For example: curses came on a man and woman through a couple who were casting witchcraft curses in a Full Gospel Church!
DEMONS AND CURSES IN YOUR LIFE
You must systematically work at riding yourself of curses. It is much easier to live without curses operating in your life. It is easier to live with the demons on the outside than on the inside of the body. Christians have many curses and demons, and must work over an extended period of time to rid themselves of these. What the church needs more than anything else is deliverance. They will never win the battle with Satan without deliverance. We need to cast out demons as a natural part of our Christian life.
VOWS AND CURSES (EXCERPTS)
In the Bible, vows were solemn promises to God, either positive or negative. Under the Mosaic Law, the vows and promises of dependents such as children, unmarried daughters and wives were void, except when ratified by the express or tacit consent of the father or husband. This afforded protection to them against rash vows. The whole matter is explored in Numbers 30. Other scriptures dealing with vows include: Ecc. 5:4-6, Num. 30:2, Deut. 23:21-22.
Broken vows can be a source of real trouble. That is why Jonah repented and renewed his vows in the belly of the fish, saying, I will pay my vows. If a vow is discovered to be contrary to scripture and dishonoring to God, it should be formally renounced and forgiveness sought for making it (I John 1:9). A vow that is expressly evil or is for an evil purpose should never be made nor kept. To keep such a vow, for the sake of consistency, is to compound one evil by another (Matt. 5:33-37).
OLD TESTAMENT CURSES
Blessings, Curses and Duration
Exodus 20:1-5 (Curse of idol worship extends to fourth generation of great grandchildren.)
Deut. 23:2 (Curse of the bastard extends to tenth generation of descendants.)
Deut. Ch. 28 (Blessings are for obeying and curses for disobeying the Holy Bible; verses 1-14: blessings, 15-44: curses and 45-68: wrath of God.)
Exodus 20:1-5 " Ezekiel 18:1-9 (God showed Earline that this was the curse of idol worship brought on her by her Indian ancestors which caused her and her family heart trouble. He also showed her how to break the curse.)
Notice how a family can be cursed to the fourth or tenth generation by the ancestors. Actually there are curses on the human race that go all the way back to Adam and Eve. Blessings can go from generation to generation if not broken by sin. Curses can also go from generation to generation if not broken by prayers of repentance, and deliverance followed by disciplining of life.
Very simply, we are blessed for obeying the Word of God and cursed for disobeying the Word of God. Blessings and curses are promises from God which will either bring down the wrath of God or His favor on your family.
God will supply all of your needs: mental, physical, spiritual and material. He can become your Savior, Baptizer, Healer, Deliverer and Prosperer. These things will only come to pass if you follow the Bible - for every promise there is a condition. If you do not meet the condition, you will not receive the promise!

New Testament Curses
Many Christians believe that all Old Testament curses are no longer in effect, yet they believe all the blessings are in effect. This does not make sense at all. If the curses are done away with, then all the promises should also be done away with and are not relevant to us today.
In Matt. 5:17-19 Jesus speaking says Do not think that I have come to do away with or undo the Law and the prophets; I have come not to do away with or undo, but to complete and fulfill them. For truly, I tell you, until the sky and earth pass away and perish not one smallest letter nor one little hook [identifying certain Hebrew letters] will pass from the Law until all things [it foreshadows] have been accomplished. Whoever then breaks or does away with or relaxes one of the least important of these commandments and teaches men so, shall be called least important in the kingdom of Heaven; but he who practices them and teaches others to do so shall be called great in the kingdom of Heaven. In the Old Testament it seems God was concerned with outward actions, but in the New Testament, He is concerned with our inner thoughts. The next verses concern thoughts and emotions. This chapter goes on to explain some of the ways God looks at anger, malice, calling a person a cursed fool, unforgiveness, adultery, divorce, remarriage, oaths or swearing, retaliation, selfishness, love enemies, etc. The requirements of the Law are not changed but rather enforced. To try to skip over dealing with curses, sins and their results will only bring confusion and grief. See also Mat. 15, 19:17-19; Mark 7; Romans 12:14.
Why Do People Take Drugs?
I am always interested in the reasons why we (people) do the things we do. The Bible tells us in Gal. 6:7-8, Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at - scorned, disdained or mocked (by mere pretensions or professions, or His precepts being set aside). He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God. For whatsoever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap. For he who sows to his own flesh (lower nature, sensuality) will from the flesh reap decay, ruin and destruction; but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. If you are in trouble, the Bible tells you that you are reaping what you have sown. The Bible also tells us that God has made a way for us to recover all (sometimes even better than it was before). We have to apply ourselves to diligently following the instruction given in the manual (Holy Bible).
As I have pondered, prayed and studied the problem of drugs and their destructive power, I have become convinced that the overriding problem behind the use of destructive drugs is rejection. Many children today are not allowed to bond with their parents, therefore they never feel truly accepted or at oneness with the people they are naturally supposed to bond with. One of the causes of this is early baby days spent in nursery or day care situations where the care giver changes rapidly. It is very unsettling to try to settle alignment and affections on someone, and have them leave you too quickly. Because of this, we have a whole generation of young people trying to fix something but they do not know what it is that needs fixing, so how can they fix it? Another reason is being brought up in an unhappy, uncaring home. God has told parents to rear children (tenderly) in discipline, wise counsel and admonition of the Lord (Eph. 6:1-4 and II Tim. 3:1-3). One reason for so much divorce is this inability to relate intimately with others. The abuse of drugs is an attempt to satisfy rejection.
We have a very large portion of young people today into all kinds of self-destructive practices. They can be seen congregating in many areas across the country. They are usually rejected children from rejected parents. As rejection passes down the generations, it picks up momentum in each succeeding generation unless someone applies the Biblical process to destroy its effects in a family. One of the main reasons we go to doctors so much is to try to fix that spot of rejection. Before I received deliverance from rejection, I used to go to doctors who seldom could find anything wrong with me. I thought some drug would fix it. I was trying to get something done about the spot that was not satisfied.
Do you know that the rejection demons that have been cast out of you are always around looking for a chance to trap you and get back in. Here's an example of rejection at work: I went to the doctor to have him check to see if I had cracked any ribs. I had a minor wreck with my car and I hit my chest on the seat belt. I was feeling great when I went in but tested with high blood pressure. I was given a medicine for high blood pressure. I took one tablet and shortly began to see a kaleidoscope before my left eye. Since the pressure was not down enough, I was given another pill to try.
I am discussing with Gene whether to take it or not. In the mist of this conversation, Gene tells me I have always been stubborn. I decide to take the pill and be a nice obedient patient. By the end of three weeks I have depression, diarrhea if I eat, stomach pains if I didn't eat, bad headaches, dizziness, etc. When I returned in two weeks, I was indeed very ill. I also noticed that I had the symptoms of all the things he had said the blood test suggested I might have. I am beginning to wonder if drugs to cause emotional problems and symptoms are not added to curative drugs. Since I have been off the drug for three weeks, I no longer feel any symptoms that were suggested to me. I feel that often times the side effects of medicines are demon spirits. As you can see, I had played with one demon, Rejection, and had several of his friends come along with him.
When rejected people have not recognized that they are dealing with rejection, they will look all over, into themselves and try a lot of things to help themselves. Their demons are so happy. The demons will help each other get into you. Of course they cannot just jump in; they have to have you give them the right to come in. Demons are just like us in that they are a spirit with a soul (mind, will and emotions) but they have no body. A body is what you have that they want. Many of the bad emotions we have are theirs. We must learn to separate our emotions and thoughts from theirs. Demons are never going to tell you that they are talking. They talk just like the body belongs to them. Ask the Lord to show you how they have worked you all this time. In James Chapter 1, God promises to give wisdom to all who ask.
Why would a person of normal intelligence do things that will destroy themselves? The Bible tells us that no man ever hated his own body (Eph.5:29). If one desires to destroy himself, it must be someone using his mind and not him. Why do some people get on harmful drugs, become grossly over weight, work themselves to death or live in terrible fears? Often these things have roots in rejection.
FATHER, in THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, I take authority over curses and their existence back to the tenth, ninth, eight, seventh, sixth, fifth, fourth, third, second and first generations. I command that they be obliterated, erased, eradicated and reversed never to return to me again. I command that every part of my body affected by curses go back into perfect order as GOD made it.
For a real eye-opener, go to the public library and ask to see the Physicians Desk Reference. It lists all the prescription drugs and their possible side effects. Sometimes the side effects produced by the chemicals are similar to the symptoms being treated.

14.LIST OF DEMONS
I would like to examine the question of shedding innocent blood, or murder of innocent people. In the last twenty years there seems to be a great rise in the murder of innocent people or what seems like innocent people. Wondering why this has happened has set me to doing a little study. It seems that as the years go by unprovoked, or what looks like unprovoked, murders become more common.
I have read about so many murders in my town that I don't pay much attention to them anymore. I do find that I stay away from certain places and types of people. I wouldn't just go anywhere as I did as a child. I take my husband or someone else when I have to go to certain areas. We have a shopping center that I almost never go to alone because I consider it not to be safe even in the day time.
I started to notice a trend in our area; on the surface it seems more women are being attacked and/or murdered than in years past. I have often wondered why. I think we can find some answers in the Bible.
One thing we have learned in deliverance sessions; those people who get into the occult, drugs or sex have a very difficult time giving their old activities up. After much prayer and Bible study, it has become evident that since these are activities carried on in idol or Satan worship, the demons will really work on these people to get back in. It is far better and safer to leave idol and Satan worship out of you life. This means no sex before marriage, no desiring forbidden knowledge, no flirting with the occult, no use of illegal drugs, and no worship of anyone as Lord except Jesus Christ.
We have seen how rebellion, hate, envy and jealousy grow extremely rapidly. The Bible tells us to obey the instructions of God quickly and enthusiastically. Quickly forgive others, repent of rebellion and quickly correct any errors in your thinking.
Have you seen families or a person that seemed to never belong; never be able to make enough money to take care of themselves, let alone their families; families who seemed to always be despised in the neighborhood; those who work and make plenty of money but never seen to have enough; those who never seem to be able to come to Jesus; those who stay in their idolatry and witchcraft even when it is obvious they are gaining nothing but are being damned, etc.?
I have a new Bible which I have started to read from beginning to end, marking God's words in red. I came upon this verse, which I will have to admit, never registered with me before. Whosoever sheds men's blood, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God He made man (Genesis 9:6). Since God created man in His image we should respect that which God gave honor to and not deface God's image, by unjustly killing a person. There is a law for killing by those who plan and carry out murder. There is a curse on those magistrates who do not punish murders (Rom. 13:4).
CAIN AND ABLE
The first account of innocent blood being shed in the Bible is in Genesis 4. The brothers Cain and Able have both offered sacrifice to God but only Able's is accepted. Cain becomes exceedingly angry and indignant. V.6, And the Lord said to Cain, Why are you angry? And why do you look sad and dejected? V.7, If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not well, sin crouches at your door; its desire is for you, and you must master it.
Cain lets anger, rage, hate, jealousy take hold of him. Instead of repenting of disobedience to God's instruction concerning sacrifices, he decides to destroy the object of his anger. He murders his brother, hides the body, and pretends he doesn't know anything about it.
God is not deceived by this act, neither is the Devil. For God looks into Cain's heart and sees the evil there. Cain could have confessed his sin but he did not, instead he lies. V.11 contains his sentence. And now you are cursed by reason of the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive you brother's (shed) blood from your hand. V.12, When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield to you its strength; you shall be a vagabond on the earth (in perpetual exile, a degraded outcast). Even at this point Cain could have repented and been forgiven, but he would not. In fact, he was telling God that God would have to accept him because of his fine gift. There is nothing we can offer God fine enough to cause Him to accept us. It is only by accepting Jesus Christ as Saviour and afterward living by God's directions that we can be acceptable to God. Cain began to tell God about the harshness of his sentence. In the light of his murder of his brother, this attitude shows his opposition to God's laws. He should have considered his sentence light compared to the sentence he deserved.
Moreover, Manasseh shed very much innocent blood, filling Jerusalem from one end to the other--besides his sin in making Judah sin, by doing evil in the sight of the Lord (II Kings 21:16). II Chron. 33:1-10, He burned his children as an offering to his god in the valley of Ben-hinnom.
Manasseh, evil son of good Hezekiah, not only worshiped other gods but he put their images in God's Temple. Children were gifts from God given by Him to parents who then turned and killed them, and sacrificed them to demons. This was a terrible affront to God, a great rebellion, and a terrible sin which brings curses for many generations, possible forever, on a family line. It takes sincere repentance for these sins of self and/or ancestors.
The Lord sent against Jehoiakim bands of Chaldeans, of Syrians, of Moabites and of Ammonites. And He sent them to Judah to destroy it, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke by His prophets. Surely this came upon Judah at the commandant of the Lord, to remove them out of His sight because of the sins of Manasseh according to all the sins he had done, And also for the innocent blood that he shed. For he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood, and the Lord would not pardon (II Kings 24:2-4).
Jehoiakim was a descendent of Manasseh; the sins of his father he did plus he received the punishment and curses of his father. Good King Hezekiah prayed to not die, God heard him, and he proceeded to give Israel the worst king it had had so far. (Read of ten tragic results from God giving Hezekiah what he wanted so badly, II Kings 20:18; 21:1, 3-4, 6, 9, 14, 16, 20.) It was good that Hezekiah prayed earnestly but at the end of giving his desire list to God, he should have submitted himself to God's plan.
Josiah, son of Manasseh, did right in the sight of the Lord and God stayed His wrath until Josiah died. But Manasseh's grandson, Jehoiakim, followed after Manasseh and great was the destruction on Judah.
There is a good possibility we would never have heard of Nebuchadnezzar, if it had not been for the Kings of Judah going after other gods and shedding innocent blood. God appointed him to be king, and to take into captivity Judah and the rest of the known world.
AHAB AND JEZEBEL
I Kings 21-22 and II Kings 10, You will see an example of the results of shedding innocent blood on Ahab's household. Ahab wanted to have the vineyard of Naboth. Naboth refused to sell. Ahab came into his house, jumped into bed, whined around and pouted until he manipulated Jezebel to solve his problem. She had Naboth framed and killed. God issued the results of that curse. V.19, where the dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall they also lick your blood (To Ahab). V.21, I will bring evil on you and utterly sweep away and cut off from Ahab every male, bond and free (To Ahab's sons). V.23, the dogs will eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel (To Jezebel). These things happened just as God said.
Jer.2:34, This is a good chapter to read completely. God, through the prophets, is telling the history of sin to these people. He reminds them that He brought them out of Egypt and set them free. They have forgotten His care and provisions in the wilderness, and being brought into a lane of plenty. Not even the priests ask for the Lord. The rulers transgressed against God, and the prophets prophesied by the authority of and in the name of Baal. Then God tells them what they are like and what will come upon them. He likens them to restless females in heat looking for a male. In verses 35-37 He explains how vain and hopeless their worship of idols is, and what destruction they have brought upon themselves.
In their idol worship they burn their babies and sacrifice their children; they also kill the innocent poor. V.34 tells them they have done these things because of their lust for idolatry.
This group of verses should serve to warn us in America of much horror, sadness and distress ahead. I try to imagine what terror a baby goes through when it is murdered. It can be nothing but murder. We can see how far we have fallen when we pick to murder those who are unable to do anything to defend themselves. See also Jer. 22:3,17; 26:15.
There will be judgement coming on our land for the guilt of the innocent blood that has been shed on our soil. These are some of the consequences we can expect: the above and those things we read about happening to the Old Testament people.
There must be sincere and deep repentance for the agreement to or the act of murder of innocents. If you give consent to abortion, you are also guilty. When Daniel asked God to forgive the sins of his nation, he used the terms us not them. Maybe we should do that too.
AS A CHILD
As a child on a mountain in Tennessee, we heard of murder only once. It was a great shock to us. Nothing like this had ever happened in my lifetime before. It took us children a long time to feel safe to go and come as we had before. There were no more murders there that I heard about, so in time, we became trusting again and went about alone without fear.
TAKING A BRIBE
Ps. 10:8, In this chapter we get a good picture of the wicked person who plots and plans murder of innocents. He is greedy, full of pride, persecutes the poor, spurns, renounces and despises the Lord, refuses to heed God's instructions and warnings, thinks he will never be punished, his ways are grievous, he believes he will never have adversity or want, his mouth is full of cursing, deceit, oppression and fraud, trouble and sin are under his tongue, and he ambushes and slays the poor and innocent.
Ps. 15:5 tells us that those who will take a bribe to slay the innocent will not dwell in the tabernacle and in God's Holy Hill.
Cursed is he who takes a bribe to slay an innocent person, all the people shall say, Amen (Deut. 27:25). This will include all parties participating in abortion of unborn children: the father, mother, doctor, nurses and others who agree to the abortion. It includes those who are bribed to lie or kill, and judges who accept bribes to cancel sentences or give light sentences to those who have committed murder or have lied to protect the guilty.
Matt. 27:4, When Judas saw that Jesus was condemned to be killed; his remorse was little more than a selfish dread of the consequences of betraying innocent blood. It looks like Judas didn't have the courage to face his friends after betraying Jesus. I'm sure he knew what he had done.
Matt. 27:24, Even Pilot wanted everyone to know he was not responsible for the innocent blood of Jesus. V.25, Then answered all the people, and said His blood be on us, and on our children. Once when we were working in deliverance with a person of Hebrew blood inheritance, we were impressed to have them repent for this curse and break it. They then began to shake and tremble violently. When they were free of these spirits, the shaking stopped.
And served their idols, which were a snare to them. Yes,, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons (Ps. 106:36-42). And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood. Thus were they defiled by their own works, and played the harlot and practiced idolatry with their own deeds of idolatrous rites. Therefore the wrath of the Lord was kindled against His people, insomuch that He abhorred and rejected His own heritage (II Kings 16:3.). And He gave them into the hand of the heathen nations, and they that hated them ruled over them. Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under the hand of their foes (Deut. 32:17).
Because the people have forsaken Me, and have estranged and profaned this place (Jerusalem), by burning incense in it to other gods that neither they nor their fathers nor the kings of Judah have known; and because they have filled this place with the blood of innocents, and have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire for burnt offerings to Baal, which I commanded not, nor spoke it, nor did it come into My mind or heart; Therefore, behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when this place shall no more be called Topheth, or the Valley of Ben-hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter. I will cause their people to fall by the sword of their enemies, and by the hand of those who seek their life; and their dead bodies will I give to be food for the birds of the air and for the beasts of the earth. I will make this city to be an astonishment and a horror and a hissing; I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and their daughters, and neighbors because of the distress of their life (Jer. 19:4-9).
See these scriptures on shedding innocent blood: Keep very far from a false matter and (be very careful) not to condemn to death the innocent and the righteous, for I will not justify and acquit the wicked (Ex. 23:7).
Lest innocent blood be shed in your land, which the Lord your God gives you as an inheritance, and so blood guilt be upon you (Deut. 19:10).
In the verses just before this one, God is setting up cities of refuge for those who accidently kill another. God did not want the avenger of blood to kill while he was hot with anger. (If the avenger killed one who had accidently killed, then the avenger would be guilty of shedding innocent blood.) The one who had accidently killed another could stay in the city of refuge until the elders of his city could determine if he was guilty of hating and planning to kill. If it was certain that he hated and planned to kill, then they would go into the city of refuge and bring him out and slay him.
Why do this? V.13, Your eyes shall not pity him, but you shall clear Israel of the guilt of innocent blood, that it may be well with you.
This is the provision for redeeming the land where one is found murdered and no one knows who did the murder. Deut. 21:1-9, If one is found slain in open land, then the city nearest to the body shall bring a heifer to a valley never sown, break it's neck, and there the men from the city would wash their hands and say whether they had seen the murder or done it.
V.8, Forgive, O Lord, Your people Israel, whom You have redeemed, and do not allow the shedding of innocent blood to be charged to Your people Israel. And the guilt of the blood shall be forgiven them. V.9, So shall you purge the guilt of innocent blood from among you, when you do what is right in the sight of the Lord.
Cursed is he who slays his neighbor secretly. All the people shall say, Amen (Deut. 27:24). Even if you should never get caught, you and your descendents will be under a curse and will be hunted by others and be killed. The Devil will never leave you and your descendents alone until you repent of your sins, accept Jesus as Saviour, break the curses on the family line, cast out the demons, and live according to the Bible thereafter. If you or you children sin in this manner later, the curse will return.
I Sam. 19:5, Saul had ordered David slain but Jonathan attempted to persuade Saul to stop before he shed innocent blood. Why was Jonathan concerned? We will see that the curse for shedding innocent blood would effect Jonathan and Saul's descendents, especially the males.
Ps. 94:21, There are those who band together to condemn the innocent to death, but the Lord will turn their own iniquity back upon them.
Six things the Lord hates: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that manufactures wicked thoughts and plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who breaths out lies (even under oath), and he who sows discord among the brethren (Pro. 6:17-19).
Their feet run to evil, and they make hast to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts are of iniquity; desolation and destruction are in their paths and highways. The way of peace they know not, and there is no justice or right in their goings; they have made them crooked paths; whoever goes in them knows not peace (Isa. 59:7-8).
Ezekiel 13 tells us about people who are occult taking bribes to keep alive those who should die, and to kill those who should live. God says in verse 23 that He will deliver His people out of their hand. In Chapter 14, God explains what He will do to those who worship idols and still come around asking for God's advice. He will be cut off from the midst of My people. God says that when the land sins (which is like our law allowing and financing abortion), He will stretch out His hand against it and cut off their bread, send famine, and cut off from it man and beast. And that even if Noah, Daniel and Job were in that land, they could save only themselves by their own uprightness. You and I will stand before God on our own record and will not be able to make claims of rightness because of what our families have done.
From this scripture we have learned: it is a very severe thing to take the life of any human being. It is most severe to take the life of the innocent, the unborn or the poor. To murder the unborn in a attempt to cover other sins only gets a person in more trouble that having the child.
It is very clear that those participating in sexual sins (which lead to pregnancy) and then a decision is made to have an abortion are committing murder. The murder of an innocent child then opens the parents to demon attacks of being murdered or having violence committed against them.
A couple that does not want a child should use birth control methods that prevent pregnancy. This is better than having an abortion of an unwanted child. Single parents should not deliberately have children outside of marriage. They are cursed and their descendents are cursed to the tenth generation.
After having an abortion, the woman is subject to having miscarriages or not being able to get pregnant again. She may have painful and prolonged bleeding, and pain during her menstrual cycles. She is subjected to many cruel emotions such as paranoia and insecurity.
Rape can lead to pregnancy. Do you have a right before God to kill the child because you were raped? Soul ties should be broken with any sexual partners outside of marriage whether by rape or by sexual consent.
The church is drastically affected by the bastard which is a child conceived out of wedlock. The bastards have great difficulty in going to church and participating in the church services. Those who have sexual demons may act religious in church to cover their guilt about their sexual sins.
Dear Father in Heaven, there are curses that fall on individuals, families, races and nations for the sin of shedding innocent blood. This is a curse that travels down the family line. I ask for forgiveness for myself and those before me who have sinned against you and others by shedding innocent blood.
We have greatly erred in shedding innocent blood in the United States. Lord forgive us of this terrible sin, redeem us from quilt and cleanse the land.
I repent of having become involved in acts that show worship and obedience to the Devil and his demons. I repent of occult acts: worship, drugs, sex, thievery, murder, etc. I break soul ties with others that I practiced these acts with.
You have given us power over the power of the Devil. I break the curse of shedding innocent blood off my family and my descendents in the name of Jesus Christ. I break curses of idol worship, Satanism and illicit sex in Jesus name.
You have said that if I call on the name of the Lord I can be delivered. I call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to set me free. I thank you Jesus for all you have done for me. I commit my life to you in a greater way today than I have before. Please instruct me, help me to correct my life and bring it into subjection to You. I pray this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, God's son. Amen.
