Blended Families: Understanding It Biblically

Elle Clarke teach the importance of breaking generational curses and how it affects the family. This is the first of a series of teachings from Bibles & Besties bible study.

What is a generational curse? A generational curse is a spiritual inheritance caused by disobedience to God from one or more members of a family that is passed down from generation to generation. 

Exodus 34: 7 … visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.

Deuteronomy 28: 15-68 

Verse 15: “But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you:

We know that this isn’t an individual curse because when you go down to verse 32 : Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people, and your eyes shall look and fail with longing for them all day long; and there shall be no strength in your hand. (Human Trafficking is as a result of generational sins. Children are suffering because of the sins of their fathers and mothers)

45-46 : “Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you. And they shall be upon you for a sign and a wonder, and on your descendants forever.

So, are we clear that generational curses are real?

What is a soul tie? Your soul is your mind, your will and emotions. A soul tie is the intermingling of spirits through intimacy, emotionally and or physically. 

1 Samuel 18:1 Now when he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.

Mark 10: 7-9 ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”

Here you see a husband and wife being joined together on two levels. 

Level 1- When the man joins with his wife they become one flesh (physical). 

Level 2- God joins them together (spirit), let no man separate. 

Personal Story: The other day I was praying and asking God why somethings in my life haven’t changed after all the fasting and praying, giving and evangelizing I have done. That night, the Lord gave me a dream that showed me that there were generational curses that came through the bloodline of my siblings parents – WOW!

Remember: Generational curses, like generational blessings, come through blood, you are kin to it. It comes with the package. It comes with you. The only way we were able to be accepted into the household of Christ was through the blood. So because you are Kin to it you are a recipient to both the blessings and the curses that are attached to your siblings parents. If you are Kin to it you are vulnerable to it. 

Understanding the blended family.

There are so many levels to the reason God commanded us to build a family in marriage.

What is a blended family? A blended family is a combination of people attached to generational blessings and curses that have now become kin, family, physically and spiritually. 

When a marriage contract is signed physically and spiritually, it signifies that the children of both the man and woman have spiritually become one flesh and one blood. Now, whatever curses attached to your husband son’s mother, now become your own because you have become one flesh with your step son and vice versa. If you don’t know this, you will be walking around with curses unaware. Walking around being defeated in certain areas of your life and oblivious to the cause despite all of your efforts to move forward.
