Gen 27:6-12:“And Rebekah spake unto Jacob her son, saying, Behold, I heard thy father speak unto Esau thy brother, saying, Bring me venison, and make me savoury meat, that I may eat, and bless thee before the Lord before my death. Now therefore, my son, obey my voice according to that which I command thee. Go now to the flock, and fetch me from thence two good kids of the goats; and I will make them savoury meat for thy father, such as he loveth: And thou shalt bring it to thy father, that he may eat, and that he may bless thee before his death. And Jacob said to Rebekah his mother, Behold, Esau my brother is a hairy man, and I am a smooth man: My father peradventure will feel me, and I shall seem to him as a deceiver; and I shall bring a curse upon me, and not a blessing.”
There is a powerful force that has pulled man backwards; it has caused destruction and failure of several destinies. Even though some people will leave the shores of this country and go abroad; if this force is not addressed, their situation will not improve. It is this force that makes people suffer in the midst of plenty and fail when success is most evident; this force is known as Curses. It is pertinent that a man identifies any curse that is in place and destroys them.
- Every Curse working against your promise land is dismantled today by the power in the blood of Jesus.
