FIRE SCRIPTURE: Deuteronomy 28:1-13 (KJV)
1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:
2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.
3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
4 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.
5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.
6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.
7 The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
9 The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.
10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.
11 And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
12 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:

PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
THE POWER THAT HEALED JERICHO OF CURSES, SETS YOU FREE FROM ALL CURSES TODAY, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
A curse is an anointing to fail. It is an invisible barrier to receiving the blessings of the Christian life. When you curse a person, you utter an evil wish against that person, causing mischief or injury to come upon that person. To curse a person is to bind that person with a spell as witches do. It is to engage in a violent expression of evil against a person. Curses are words put together to torment with great calamity. A curse is an invisible barrier that keeps people or things away from what God has for them. However, the greatest problem about curses is that most people who have been cursed do not know.
How do you know if there is a curse at work in your life? Deuteronomy 28 gives us an insight: First, there will be mental and emotional breakdown (Deuteronomy 28:20, 28, 34, 65, 66). Such a victim may be haunted by an inner voice that tells him to say, think or do weird things. The second sign of a life under a curse is repeated or chronic illness, including wasting diseases that are characterised by lack of clear medical diagnosis, being prolonged and running in a family (Deuteronomy 28:22, 27, 35, 59 and 61). The third sign includes barrenness, repeated miscarriages and related female problems. This stems from Deuteronomy 28:18, “The fruit of thy womb shall be cursed.” This curse therefore, affects reproductive organs and functions. It also causes barrenness, miscarriage, irregular and problematic menstruation. Another sign that a life is under a curse is marriage breakdown and alienation in families (Deuteronomy 28:30a, 41). This curse is the reason many sons and daughters live sinful, wayward and ungodly lives. It is also the reason many siblings live in strife, rivalry and disunity when they should be bound together in love. Abject financial and material lack is another sign that a life is cursed (Deuteronomy 28:17). When wretchedness is the order of the day and a person’s genuine effort always yields no result, there is a curse at work. Being prone to frequent and unnatural accident, sometimes as a result of other people’s fault is a sign that a person is under a curse. Finally, unnatural death in a family or tribe is an indicator of an umbrella curse on that family tree.
Beloved, is any or some of these signs evident in your life? There is a way out. Accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour now. Repent of all your sins and break the curse(s), in the name of Jesus. Once any curse at work in your life is broken and the demon behind it is cast out, you will have a divine turnaround and fulfillment.
- Any curse issued to turn my life upside down, I break you now with the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
- Curse of “thou shall not prosper”, break and release me now, in the name of Jesus.
- Any parental curse I am labouring under, break, by the power in the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
- Any curse of mental and emotional breakdown or instability, my life is not your candidate, break, in the name of Jesus.
- Any curse of marital failure, distress and turbulence, break, in the name of Jesus.
- Curse of strange sickess and wasting diseases, break and release me, in the name of Jesus.
- Curse of unnatural accident and untimely death, break and release me, in the name of Jesus.
