Memorise:
“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” Galatians 3:13

Read: Colossians 2:14-18 (KJV)
14. Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His Cross;
15. And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
16. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
17. Which are a shadow of things to come; but The Body is of Christ.
18. Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

MESSAGE:
A. Many people are suffering from curses which they know nothing about because the cause of the curses took place a very long time ago in their lineage.
1. As a matter of fact, if you think you haven’t inherited any lineage curse, you should remember that of Adam and Eve, from who we inherited pain, hunger, sickness and death.
2. We must deal with these curses if we want to live a meaningful and fulfilled life.
3. In our memory verse for today, we are assured of a way of dealing with ancestral curses.
4. Curses, including the one we inherited from Adam and Eve, are being dealt with by The Work of Redemption wrought by Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
5. He was made A Curse for us so that we can be delivered from the terrible consequences of sin and curses.
6. Christ was to be made A Sin and A Curse; He felt the agony of this exercise and prayed asking if the deal could be amended:
7. “And he was withdrawn from them about a stone’s cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, saying, Father, if Thou be willing, remove this cup from Me: nevertheless no My Will, but Thine, be done.” Luke 22:41-42

B. Jesus Christ went to The Cross with the age-long curses upon humanity.
1. However, Jesus endured to the end and cried “It is finished”, that is, the price of the curse has been paid in full. 2. Hence, the human race was liberated. This is the reality which Paul, An Apostle of Jesus Christ described in Colossians 2:14-15 “Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
3. You Beloved, if you want to effectively deal with the ancestral curses in your life, there is Only One Way and Jesus is That Way.
4. He is The Lamb of God that is worthy to liberate you from the Devil.
5. The Bible says He is the only One that is qualified to open the seal of freedom.

C. Chapter 5:1-14
The Lamb Takes The Scroll: 1. And I saw in the right hand of Him Who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. 2. Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” 3. 3. And no one in Heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it.
4. So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open and read the scroll, or to look at it.
5. But one of The Elders said to me, “Do not weep. 5. Behold, The Lion of The Tribe of Judah, The Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”
6. And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood A Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
7. Then He came and took the scroll out of The Right Hand of Him Who sat on The Throne. Worthy Is the Lamb.
8. Now when He had taken the scroll, The Four Living Creatures and The Twenty-Four Elders fell down before The Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.
9. And they sang a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll, And to open its seals; For You were slain, And have redeemed us to God by Your Blood. Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10. And have made us kings and priests to Our God; And we shall reign on the earth.”
11. Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne, the living creatures, and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands,
12. Saying with a loud voice: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain To receive power and riches and wisdom, And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
13. And every creature which is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, I heard saying: “Blessing and Honour and Glory and Power. Be to Him Who sits on The Throne, And to the Lamb, forever and ever!”
14. Then the four living creatures said, “Amen!” And the twenty-four elders fell down and worshiped Him Who lives forever and ever.

D. Today, I advise you to surrender your life totally to Jesus Christ if you have not done so.
1. He will make a public show of those demonic influences hovering over your life and you will be free and blessed.
