HOW TO DETECT AND DESTROY CURSES

Dr. D. K. Olukoya

WHAT IS A CURSE?

It can mean many things such as:

1. Uttering a wish of evil against somebody or a thing.

2. Calling for mischief or injury to fall upon a person.

3. Binding a person, a thing or a place with a spell.

4. An evil pronouncement against a person, a place or a thing. Inanimate objects such as shoes, cars, buildings, clothes, food, etc. can be subjected to curses.

5. Vehicle of evil supernatural powers which can be transferred and can continue from generation to generation

6. The opposite of blessing.

7. A kind of fence to protect demons and to give them a legal ground to operate.

Issuing curses on people is common in Africa. In fact, in some areas, people wake up their children in the morning with curses. In some places, too, whenever people are angry they issue curses. The wife would curse the husband; the husband would curse the wife. They would curse their kids together. At school, the teacher would curse the students and the students, too, would curse the teachers. At bus-stops, there are a lot of curses. So, they are quite common. While some curses are disappearing, satanic agents renew some day by day.

Let us look at some interesting Scriptures:

Romans 10:15 says, “How shall they preach except they be sent? As it is written, how beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace and bring glad tidings of good things.”

When gospel preachers enter into a place they bring in beautiful things. When Phillip arrived in Samaria, the Bible says, there was much joy in that city. So, when a gospel preacher is in an environment, there is joy, deliverance and salvation because the feet of the preachers of the gospel are beautiful. Likewise you have the ugly feet of the advertisers of the devil. When they get into a place, even if things were going on well there before, they would begin to turn sour. When you employ them in your shop, business will go down. When you take them as housemaids, your husband will become poor, your wife will become poor, and they will start to sell the property. When you take them into your house, the spiritual lives of people there would go down. These are signs that bad feet have entered into your house, the ugly feet of the advertisers of the devil.

Matthew 10:14-15 says, “And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet. Verily, I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.”

So, when the preacher of the gospel of peace decides to shake the dust off his feet inside a house or a city, calamity would befall the city or the environment. So, there is power in the feet. Jesus said, “I give unto you power to tread upon serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” So, woe to that city where the dust was shaken off. Please, pray like this: “Oh Lord, help me to detect every evil that is hiding in my life in Jesus’ name.”
