What mean ye that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying the fathers have eaten sour grapes and the children’s teeth are set on edge? As I live, saith the Lord God, ye shall no more have occasion to use this proverb in Israel. The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him (Ezekiel 18: 2-3, 20).
The new creature in Christ is not subject to any generational curses. Like our theme scripture shows: the notion that one is bound because of his father, grandmother or great grandfather’s action is scripturally inaccurate.
I know a Christian who was stuck and afflicted by problem after problem in her life. When she spoke to a man of God over the issue, he told her to first trace her family line as far back as she could and then start to break the generational curses one by one, starting from the farthest grandparent.
She took a trip to her village and faithfully did so: systematically moving down a lengthy family tree and breaking the curses brought about by any sin of her forefathers. Her situation never changed.
Child of God, the word ‘generation’ comes from the Latin word "generare" meaning to beget. The Greek word "genos" means kindred, family, stock or tribe. You are begotten of God; you are of the God generation.
The Bible says that if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, THE OLD IS PASSED [Any attachment to old generations is passed] and the new is come and ALL THINGS ARE OF GOD (2 Corinthians 5:17-18). It says: ‘of his own will begat he us with the word of truth that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures (James 1:18).
Saints, this means you have God’s DNA. That family tree of your father and mother and the consequences of their actions are not your portion; you are free from generational curses. But instead, your portion is generational blessings.

GOLDEN NUGGET: You have God’s DNA. You are free from generational curses. Your portion is generational blessings.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this great and wonderful word. I have your DNA; your life is in me, it is flowing through my veins, my body, my heart and in my bones. It works in everything around me. I live in the freedom of one that has been set free indeed. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
