FIRST SONG: ‘DELIVERANCE’ by Gateway

 

You wouldn’t let me stay a captive

You couldn’t stand to see my chains

And so You came to be my rescue

To part the waters in my way

 

Jesus, You are my deliverance

From death to life, from dark to light

Jesus, You show me what freedom is

You call my name, You broke my shame

You are my deliverance

 

You wouldn’t let me stay in judgement

You took the wrath that I deserved

Your outstretched arms became my rescue

Your blood has told me what I’m worth

 

Jesus, You are my deliverance

From death to life, from dark to light

Jesus, You show me what freedom is

You call my name, You broke my shame

You are my deliverance

You are my deliverance

 

‘Cause Your love defeated the enemy

Your love defeated the enemy

Now there is victory ahead of me

There’s no looking back, no looking back

Thank You Jesus!

 

For the past two days, we have been knocking on Heaven’s door. 

 

First, we knocked on Heaven’s door for the sure mercies of David!

 

Then, we knocked on the door of baptism of fire. 

 

Have God met with you these past two days?

 

Are you hopeful that your life will never remain the same again after this prayer programme?

 

The Lord grants you speedy answers according to the level of your faith. Amen. 

 

Today, we are moving forward!

 

We are going to be KNOCKING ON HEAVEN’S DOOR FOR DELIVERANCE FROM GENERATIONAL CURSES

Let us read from our text: 

 

1 CHRONICLES 4:9-10

 

9) Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother named him Jabez saying, “Because I bore him with pain.” 

 

10) Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, “Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!” And God granted him what he requested.

 

It will interest you to know that everyone with this prayer bulletin came from and is affected by a family tree, some people, it might even be you, yes, you’re still dealing with the fruit of your family tree, You’re dealing today with some negative stuff that you inherited from your momma, your daddy, your grandparents and your great grandparents.

 

Let me ask you a question this day:

 

WHAT’S ON YOUR TREE? 

 

You might as well go on and admit it because all of us have some negative stuff in us that was passed down to us by our family tree, but instead of admitting it and owning up to it, we try to hide and deny those negative characteristics and qualities that we inherited from our family tree. 

 

You see, every family tree is loaded and laden with generational curses and so, again I ask you: 

 

WHAT’S ON YOUR TREE? 

 

WHAT LEGACY OF SIN EXISTS IN YOUR FAMILY? 

 

Is it alcoholism? 

 

Is it drug abuse? 

 

Is it sexual promiscuity? 

 

Is it teenage pregnancy?

 

Is it abortion?

 

Is it premature death?

 

Is it unstable marriage?

 

Is it physical or verbal abuse? 

 

Is it a welfare mentality? 

 

What legacy of sin has cursed the generations in your family?

 

Today, in this text, we are introduced to a man named Jabez who had to deal with a generational curse in his life, but the good news today is that Jabez demonstrates for all of us how you and I can use the power of prayer to break the generational curses from our lives. 

 

NOW, LET ME GIVE YOU MY TWO POINTS RIGHT NOW AND THEN I WANT TO SPEND THE NEXT FEW MOMENTS UNPACKING EACH ONE, IS THAT ALRIGHT?

 

First, I want you to see THE CAUSE OF JABEZ’S CURSE

 

And then I want you to see THE CURE FOR JABEZ’S CURSE

 

First of all, let’s take a look at THE CAUSE OF JABEZ’S CURSE.

 

Now, if you do an etymological study on the name JABEZ, you’ll discover that the name Jabez in the original Hebrew literally means “PAIN”, “HE CAUSES PAIN” or “HE IS PAIN.” And we discover in this text, that when Jabez was born, his mother gave him a name that would forever memorialize and identify him with pain, for she gave him the name JABEZ and the name JABEZ means pain. 

 

Now we all know that every baby is born into this world accompanied by a certain amount of pain – all mothers can testify to the fact that every baby is born with some pain. And we know from Biblical research that the pain that comes with childbirth is a direct result of the curse that God placed on mankind because of our sin in the Garden of Eden. Kindly take a look at Genesis 3:16 for in that verse God said to the woman:

 

“I will greatly multiply your pain in childbirth, in pain you will bring forth children; yet your desire will be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”   And so God placed a curse on the woman for her participation in bringing sin into the world, and that curse would be that she would have pain in childbirth.

 

But what we read about Jabez in this text is more than that; we all realize this morning that all children are born with some pain, but something happened with the birth of Jabez that went far beyond the pain of natural childbirth. Usually after the child is born, the joy of the product eclipses the pain of the process – but that didn’t happen with Jabez. Somehow the mother of Jabez experienced such excruciating pain that after it was all over, she memorialized the pain of the experience in the name of her son. 

 

THEY CLEANED HIM UP, GOT RID OF ALL THE AFTERBIRTH, PUT SOME BABY CLOTHES ON HIS BACK, BROUGHT HIM TO HIS MOTHER AND SAID…”WHAT DO YOU WANT TO CALL HIM?…”, AND SHE SAID “CALL HIM ‘PAIN!’”

 

Now, the Bible doesn’t tell us why she called him pain, so it gives me room to use my sanctified imagination…

 

MAYBE SHE CALLED HIM PAIN BECAUSE SHE HAD SUCH A TRAUMATIC PREGNANCY THAT SHE JUST COULDN’T FORGET IT

 

MAYBE SHE CALLED HIM PAIN BECAUSE SHE EXPERIENCED THE EXCRUCIATING PAIN OF A BREECH BIRTH.

 

MAYBE SHE CALLED HIM PAIN BECAUSE SHE WAS GOING THROUGH SOME KIND OF EMOTIONAL PAIN

 

MAYBE SHE CALLED HIM PAIN BECAUSE HER HUSBAND DESERTED HER DURING HER PREGNANCY

 

MAYBE SHE CALLED HIM PAIN BECAUSE HER HUSBAND WAS AN ABUSIVE MAN AND DENIED THAT THE BABY WAS EVEN HIS

 

MAYBE SHE CALLED HIM PAIN BECAUSE THEY ALREADY HAD 12 CHILDREN AND SHE JUST COULDN’T STAND THE THOUGHT OF HAVING ONE MORE MOUTH TO FEED

 

We don’t know for sure, only God knows, but we do know that the pain that existed in her life at the time this baby was born was so acute and so devastating that she memorialized that painful experience in the name of her son, and she called him JABEZ.

 

 

 

Can you imagine what Jabez had to deal with growing up as a little boy? Every other child on the playground had normal, natural names, but his name was pain. Every time somebody called his name, it was a reminder that his momma never really wanted him. He got teased and picked on at school because of his name. Nobody ever wanted to hang around him because nobody wanted to be best friends with pain.

 

But Jabez had to deal with not allowing his negative name to determine his future. You see, in Bible times, when parents gave their children names, the name served as a prophecy of what they would become in the future – and so Jabez’s mother prophesied that his life would be filled with pain wherever he goes, she prophesied that no matter what he did with his life, and no matter what direction he chose to go with his life, the end result would be pain. 

 

She prophesied that pain would loom over his life like a dark storm cloud casting evil and ominous shadows on a bright sunny day.  And therein, dear sisters lies the curse. The text doesn’t explicitly call it a curse, but what it describes is a curse.

 

Now, let me ask you a question, what are some of the curses on your tree? Some of you inherited a spirit of anger, a bad temper, and a critical spirit. 

 

Some of you inherited a spirit of fear and anxiety. Somebody inherited a lying, cheating, and stealing spirit. Some of you looking at me right now inherited a spirit of arrogance, stuck-upness, and pride, 

 

The tragedy is the curse we inherited from our tree has caused us problems all of our lives.

 

            

 

Now, I want you to understand today, that what Jabez inherited was a WORD CURSE; it was a curse of words or a curse stemming from spoken words of condemnation. You do remember that Jesus walked by a fig tree one day, saw that the tree wasn’t producing any fruit and the Bible says that Jesus cursed the tree with a word curse and it withered and died. And I’ve stopped by to tell you today that just like that happened in nature, the same thing can happen in your life and in my life. 

 

We can speak word curses into people’s lives that literally become self-fulfilling prophecies. We can speak words of condemnation into people’s lives that can cause their dreams to dry up and their aspirations to shrivel up and die. Some of you are still dealing with the sting of a word curse that was spoken over and in our lives by some parent, some grandparent, some coach, some school teacher, or some co-worker on our job and all of your life you’ve been dealing with that word curse.

 

When they told you that…

 

YOU’LL NEVER BE ANY GOOD…

 

“YOU A CRAZY FOOL

 

YOU’RE JUST LIKE YOUR NO GOOD DADDY

 

YOU GONE BE A PROSTITUTE LIKE YOUR SKANKY MAMMA…

 

YOU ARE SICKLER LIKE YOUR SISTER

 

YOU ARE GOING TO DIE YOUNG LIKE YOUR MUM

 

That’s what Jabez’s mamma passed on to him, it was a word curse. 

 

Jabez’s momma put a word curse on him by labeling him with a negative name, and all of us, in one way or another, are dealing with the curse and the sting of negative labels that where passed on to us by people we loved and respected.

 

But you see, in order to really understand generational curses, you’ve got to understand something about generational law. Genesis 1 gives us the principle of generational law. After your prayer today, please, take some time to read Genesis one because several times in Genesis one, we are told that everything reproduces after its own kind – cattle and the beasts of the field reproduced after their own kind, the vegetation reproduced after its own kind – everything reproduced after its own kind and Jesus picked up this principle over there in Matthew 7:17 & 18 when he said: “So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.  “A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit.” 

 

Listen, He’s not just talking about fruit here, he’s saying that everything reproduces after its own kind – good trees produce good fruit and bad trees produce bad fruit – whatever seeds you plant in life will determine to a large degree the kind of results you will receive in life.

 

The good news I have come with today is you don’t have to stay the way you are! The good news today is that every generational curse on your life can be broken by the power of Jesus Christ. I wish I had time to deal with the CONTENT OF JABEZ’S PRAYER! Try to study the full content of Jabez’s prayer.

 

If I had time I’d tell you that Jabez prayed that God would bless him indeed, that word BLESS means that Jabez wanted God to shower down his goodness on his life.

 

Jabez prayed that God would shower down his favor on his life. If I had time, I’d tell you that Jabez prayed that God would enlarge his territory, Jabez prayed that God would give him more land, more territory, more influence, more ministry, Jabez looked at his life and he realized that where he was, was not where he wanted to be and so he prayed that the Lord would give him more than he was currently experiencing. 

 

If I had time, I’d tell you that Jabez prayed that God’s hand would be on his life, Jabez understood that the one thing that distinguishes an ordinary life from an extraordinary life is the hand of God resting on that life. 

 

Jebez prayed that his life would be touched by the hand of God, and if I had time, I’d tell you that Jabez prayed that God would keep him from harm that it might not pain him. We could talk all day about the content of Jabez’s prayer, but I don’t have time to tell you all of that – what I do want you to see today is that prayer brought the cure to Jabez’s curse, the generational curse that rested on the life of Jabez was broken when Jabez went to the Lord in prayer!

 

Look at the “A” part of verse 10, it says, “NOW JABEZ CALLED ON THE GOD OF ISREAL…”Jabez realized that the only way to break the generational curse that rested upon his life was to call on the God of Israel. In other words, Jabez looked at his life, realized that his mother had named him pain and had spoken a curse on his life, and he decided to take his generational curse to the only One who was able to break the curse from his life. Jabez decided to take it to the Lord in prayer. 

 

The text says that Jabez called on the God of Israel. Jabez called on the same God that had delivered the children of Israel out of Egyptian bondage. Jabez called on the same God who had split open the Red Sea and allowed His people to walk over on dry ground. Jabez called on the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jabez called on the same God who gave them manna in the morning, quail in the evening, water from a rock, and made the walls of Jericho come a tumblin’ down! Jabez called on the mighty, warrior God of Israel that enabled and empowered his people to defeat all of their enemies. JABEZ PRAYED AND CALLED ON THE GOD OF ISRAEL.

 

And the good news for you and me this morning, my sisters, is that the same God who broke the curse on Jabez’s life is the same God who can break every curse in our lives today! You don’t have to deal with the generational curses in your life! You don’t have to perpetuate the legacy of sin that exists in your family. Your father’s sin-problems don’t have to be your sin-problems. Your momma’s junk doesn’t have to be your junk! Just because daddy was a rolling stone and a player doesn’t mean you’ve got to be one. 

 

Just because momma died young does not mean you are going to die young. Just because momma had cancer does not mean you will die of cancer!

 

When you come to Jesus, JESUS BREAKS THE CURSE ON YOUR LIFE! JESUS CHRIST IS READY, WILLING AND ABLE TO BREAK EVERY CURSE IN YOUR LIFE! 

 

The Bible says in Gal 3:13-14 – “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us…,He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.” 

 

The Bible says in Isaiah 53:5 – “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

 

But if you want the curses in your life to be broken, if you want the legacy of sin that you picked from your parents and grandparents to be broken, if you want to be delivered from the bondages of sin and Satan, then you’ve got to do exactly what Jabez did:

 

You’ve got to humble yourself before God, admit that you don’t have it all together. 

 

Admit that you need His help. And you’ve got to call on the name of the Lord in prayer to deliver you and to set you free. 

 

You’ve got to realize today that GOD IS A GOOD GOD and that whenever you call on the Name of the Lord, God will hear and answer your prayer.

 

I’m so glad today that whenever I get in trouble, whenever I’m facing a big rock of sin that’s standing in my way, there is somebody I can call on, and his name is JESUS. JESUS is the SUPREME MASTER, and I’m so glad to know today, that: 

 

there is no rock that Jesus can’t move,

 

there is no curse that Jesus can’t cure

 

there is no sin that Jesus can’t forgive

 

there is no bondage that Jesus can’t break

 

there is no problem that Jesus can’t solve

 

there is no sickness that Jesus can’t heal

 

there is no foe that Jesus can’t fight

 

Calling on the name of the Lord means that you invite God into your situation.

 

Calling on the name of the Lord means that you say:

 

“FATHER, I STRETCH MY HANDS TO THEE, NO OTHER HELP I KNOW, IF THOU WILT DRAW THYSELF FROM ME, WHETHER SHALL I GO.”

 

CALLING ON THE NAME OF THE LORD MEANS THAT YOU…

 

  1. ADMIT YOU INADEQUACIES AND EMBRACE HIS ADEQUACY
  2. ADMIT YOUR POWERLESSNESS AND EMBRACE HIS POWER
  3. ADMIT YOUR WEAKNESSES AND EMBRACE HIS STRENGTH
  4. OWN UP TO YOUR SHORTCOMINGS AND YOU DEPEND ON HIS FAITHFULNESS

 

JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN BREAK THE GENERATIONAL CURSES ON YOUR LIFE – JESUS IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DELIVER YOU FROM THE LEGACY OF SIN THAT EXIST IN YOUR FAMILY. 

 

THE BIBLE SAYS “HE WHOM THE SON SETS FREE IS FREE INDEED! 

 

God has the power, but do you have the faith?

 

SHALL WE PRAY?

 

What is that curse you have noticed in your life? You have seen it in your parents and other family members and you can see they are coming into your life as well. Begin to write them down in your prayer journal now. 

 

As you write them down, prayerfully cancel them from the beginning to the end with the Blood of Jesus. Yes, put this faith into practice. Write ‘THE BLOOD OF JESUS’ in capital letters over those curses you have written down. 

 

Oh yes, the Lord has done all things well! 

 

Sing praises to the Lord. In fact, open to the next page in your prayer journal and begin to write what the Lord is to you. Who is He to you? What is He to you?

 

Gloooooraaaaayyyyy to God ALMIGHTY! 

 

Let us move to our last song for today. 

 

It is titled ‘THEY SAID, BUT GOD SAID’ by Jekalyn Carr. 

Halleluyah!!!!!!

 

They Said, But God Said

They said you couldn’t have it, but God said it’s yours.

They said you wouldn’t make it, but God said I’ll open doors.

They said it was over for you, but God said it has just begun.

They said you might as well give up the fight, but God said the battle is already won

They walk on you

They talk on you

They pressed on you

They lied on you, but in the midst of all of that God still raised up a champion

In the midst of the hurt

In the midst of the pain

In the midst of distractions

He said you are the chosen one

They said you would never be, but God said I’m raising you for my Glory

They said you didn’t have a dream, but God says you have purpose

They said this problem will never end, but God said I’m bringing you out My child

They said you might as well throw in the towel, but God said the storm is just for awhile.

They walk on you

They talk on you

They pressed on you

They lied on you, but in the midst of all of that God still raised up a champion

In the midst of the hurt

In the midst of the pain

In the midst of distractions

He said you are the chosen one

You’re gonna face hurt

You’re gonna face pain

You’re gonna face heartache and even some rain

You’re gonna have ups

You’re gonna have downs

Here today, but tomorrow they may not be found.

You’re gonna have tears

You’re gonna be wrong

You’re gonna have fears and have to walk alone

BUT you better know

You are the chosen one

Just like Nehemiah you may have to ask God for strength today

(You are the chosen one)

Strength to make it

Strength to take it

Just like Sampson you may not understand the instructions, but you gotta wait

I know sometimes it may be hard to understand but God’s gonna lead you.

He’s gonna take you all the way.

You may be like Moses going through a heavy?

Oh you gotta understand

Just like Abraham you may have to walk alone and leave everything behind.

Don’t worry, don’t worry

Don’t worry about it because God’s got a plan for your life.

In the midst of hurt

In the midst of negativity

In the midst of distractions

Even being misused.

Even though they said it, it does not have to be because God has the last word over your life.

You are the chosen one x5

You’re gonna face hurt

You’re gonna face pain

You’re gonna face heartache and even some rain

You’re gonna have ups

You’re gonna have downs

Here today, but tomorrow they may not be found.

You’re gonna have tears

You’re gonna be wrong

You’re gonna have fears and have to walk alone

BUT we just want to let you know today

You are the chosen one
