Is Your Life Really Cursed?

I know, you are thinking that is a pretty intense question.  I really believe this is a question that needs to be asked.  Because the cursedchurch as a large majority ignores spiritual warfare, the power that Satan and the power given to Satan when we open doors in our life, this question needs to be asked.

I want to begin with this quote, this way you’ll understand I do approach this with balance and yet seriousness.  “We get way too impressed with the devil.” ~Bill Johnson.  I so agree with Bill Johnson on this statement.  However, we also need to take opening spiritual doors that allows Satan to attack us very serious.  The only true power Satan has is if we hand it over to him and often we do without even knowing it.

I don’t believe for a minute you can sit at home reading your horoscope, calling psychics, going to palm readers, being involved in any kind of witchcraft, talking with spirits, without opening spiritual doors that allows demons and curses to turn your life upside down.

Jesus said to Peter, “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to have you, to sift you like wheat.” (Luke 22:31).  That is exactly what Satan will do if you open doors for him to get into your life.  I really believe these doors can be open by the above items of witchcraft I just spoke of, watching demonic movies where Satan is glorified along with other area’s of sin in our life.

Deuternomy 18:9-14 (MSG),

9-12 “When you enter the land that God, your God, is giving you, don’t take on the abominable ways of life of the nations there. Don’t you dare sacrifice your son or daughter in the fire. Don’t practice divination, sorcery, fortunetelling, witchery, casting spells, holding séances, or channeling with the dead. People who do these things are an abomination to God. It’s because of just such abominable practices that God, your God, is driving these nations out before you. 13-14 Be completely loyal to God, your God. These nations that you’re about to run out of the country consort with sorcerers and witches. But not you. God, your God, forbids it.”

God is pretty clear about what doors not to open.  It’s not because He is a kill joy, He just knows these things will kill your joy.  Satan’s goal is for you to be cursed, he is just waiting for you to open the door so he can come in and turn your life upside down.  At that point Satan is an invited guest into your home if you are practicing any of those things.  That statement alone gives me the goose bumps.

Galatians 5:19-21 (MSG)

19-21″It is obvious what kind of life develops out of trying to get your own way all the time: repetitive, loveless, cheap sex; a stinking accumulation of mental and emotional garbage; frenzied and joyless grabs for happiness; trinket gods; magic-show religion; paranoid loneliness; cutthroat competition; all-consuming-yet-never-satisfied wants; a brutal temper; an impotence to love or be loved; divided homes and divided lives; small-minded and lopsided pursuits; the vicious habit of depersonalizing everyone into a rival; uncontrolled and uncontrollable addictions; ugly parodies of community. I could go on.  This isn’t the first time I have warned you, you know. If you use your freedom this way, you will not inherit God’s kingdom.”

I receive letters all the time from individuals that feel as though they are being cursed or ask for help because everything is going wrong in their life.  Just because you are going through a tough time doesn’t mean you are cursed.  Life can be hard, there is a battle where Satan will try to wear you out.  At the same time many have opened doors and haven’t realized it and cannot win the battle they are in until the doors have been closed and Satan denied the right to cause torment in their lives.

There is a price to pay in order to close the doors that have allowed Satan into our lives.  Acts 19:19 (MSG) 17-20It was soon news all over Ephesus among both Jews and Greeks. The realization spread that God was in and behind this. Curiosity about Paul developed into reverence for the Master Jesus. Many of those who thus believed came out of the closet and made a clean break with their secret sorceries. All kinds of witches and warlocks came out of the woodwork with their books of spells and incantations and made a huge bonfire of them. Someone estimated their worth at fifty thousand silver coins. In such ways it became evident that the Word of the Master was now sovereign and prevailed in Ephesus.”

I love what Matthew Henry’s commentary has to say about this verse.

“It was common, especially among the Jews, for persons to profess or to try to cast out evil spirits. If we resist the devil by faith in Christ, he will flee from us; but if we think to resist him by the using of Christ’s name, or his works, as a spell or charm, Satan will prevail against us. Where there is true sorrow for sin, there will be free confession of sin to God in every prayer and to man whom we have offended, when the case requires it. Surely if the word of God prevailed among us, many lewd, infidel, and wicked books would be burned by their possessors. Will not these Ephesian converts rise up in judgement against professors, who traffic in such works for the sake of gain, or allow themselves to possess them? If we desire to be in earnest in the great work of salvation, every pursuit and enjoyment must be given up which hinders the effect of the gospel upon the mind, or loosens its hold upon the heart.”

So what if we have opened doors to our life that has caused us to live under a curse with demonic influence going on in our life?   I would suggest a couple of things:

1.  Make sure you close those doors.  Ask the Lord for forgiveness.  Tell Satan you no longer are in agreement with him in those areas.  Break any ties with the past in these areas one at a time.  Name them and break them in the name of Jesus.

2.  I would encourage you to read two books that have blown me and others away over the years.  Neil Anderson’s “Victory Over The Darkness” and “Bondage Breakers.”  Both of these books are written by Neil Anderson.  You’ll find the freedom you are searching for and of course learn who you are in Christ and how to walk in that authority.

3.  I would encourage you to read my book, “The Day Satan Called.”  This book is a true story about open doors and spiritual warfare.  You’ll find encouragement, insight into spiritual warfare and I believe the book is a life changer.

You can live in freedom and break any curse or demonic stronghold that has been placed on your life.  Many times we open doors not on purpose but out of not being educated to the things of God and what opens the doors we want to keep closed.

I really hope you find this short blog helpful today.

Many blessings.
Bill Scott

  • Nobody understands how serious or how very real these things are until they have walked in your shoes. I have had experiences with several people in my life and there was no question in my mind as to what was going on. I thank God every day that the deliverance process is available to all who need it and that The Truth will set us free! I’ve always said:
    JESUS CHRIST IS MORE POWERFUL THAN SATAN WILL EVER BE! Thank You, God! Thank you for standing in the gap and for laying down your life for another. It’s amazing how God uses us. God bless you for all you do. Can’t wait to read the rest of the story.

    • Thanks for posting.
