We all know, from Old Testament sacrifices to the Blood of Jesus, that there’s a spiritual aspect to blood.
Occultists also know this, only too well.
Why it has such supernatural force is mysterious.
In the book, Deep Mysteries of the Blood, by Ebenezer and Abigail Gabriels, the point is made that every covenant the Lord makes with a life is located in that fluid that flows through our veins, arteries, and hearts, that liquid that nourishes every organ, tissue, and cell. And it isn’t mere biology.
Blood is passed down to us. It has genetic aspects.
Is it spiritually — mystically — passed along as well?
That’s the contention of many in the deliverance business, and we have seen countless indications of its truth — the transcendental nature of heredity — through the years.
“Spiritually, the blood carries information about a person’s life. Generational transfer of blessings or curses is carried through the blood. As couples have children, the children carry their parents’ blood, and as they grow into adults and start their own families, the cycle repeats,” note the authors. “Generational trends, patterns, and history are preserved in the blood. Your parents may not leave your physical inheritance, but by blood, they left you a spiritual inheritance. This inheritance is what you need to figure out.”
And generational issues go beyond the fluid. Spirits attach to certain family members and, like physical characteristics, are passed down through the generations, until — through the Blood of Christ — their grip is broken and they are cast off.
Rare is the family without such challenges.
Often, it is by way of repeated problems.
“Some people find out that wherever they go, everyone hates them, and they also find that happening to other people in their family,” say Ebenezer and Abigail. “Some people find out that they get married late in their family. Others find out that most people never get a college degree in their family. Others find out that after they get a college degree, they never obtain a good job or job at all.”
The list is almost endless.
Childlessness. Lassitude. Sloth.
Much can be attributed, we would argue, to simple psychological, environmental, and genetic factors. Rejection or acceptance can rely on many recognized factors. There are other explanations.
But families can be haunted by unfortunate events and traits — literally and mysteriously.
We owe it to ourselves, and our children and grandchildren, to break any negative generational spirit — any “curse.”
A start is during Consecration, when the Body of Jesus is raised (praying for the family to be as pure as the white Host), and especially with the raising of that chalice — and the invaluable Blood it contains. This website offers ten valuable prayers, as well as explanations from the Catholic perspective.
Here are two of the prayers:
“Righteous Savior, I humbly come before You today to confess the sins committed by my forefathers and myself. We have disobeyed Your word, allowing the enemy to reinforce generational curses upon our family. Lord, I ask for Your forgiveness for all these transgressions. May the precious blood of Jesus purify us from every sin we have committed against You. Holy Spirit, cleanse our family line from every curse that has been passed down through the generations. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.” [Verse: ‘If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’ – 1 John 1:9]
“Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that Christ came to grant us freedom. By His precious blood, I declare that every generational curse in my lineage has no power over me. I pray that every curse spoken, written, or transferred to me is shattered by the power of Jesus’ blood. Poverty, sickness, and family idols have no authority over my life. I choose to walk in the freedom that Christ has purchased for me. In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen.”

In the silence…
In the silence of my heart, may my faith revive;
In the silence of my heart, may my hope survive.
In the silence of my heart, may Love come alive.
