Breaking curses  book 1 (breaking all curses): Breaking Curses, Including Breaking Generational Curses
Chapter 5. Can Satan Bring Curses? Can Satan Curse People?

Satan’s physical limitation on curses

Chapter 2 showed that one of the five conditions to enable a curse to operate is that it needs to be uttered whether verbally or in writing by a source in the physical or earthly realm. A mere mental wish of ill will or misfortune cannot result in a curse. Thus curses are not telepathic or psychical. My other book on breaking spells deals with overcoming matters on telepathy, the psychic and tapping into the spirit world. It’s titled, Breaking Occult Spells: Protection from Witchcraft and Occult Influences.

Neither can curses be received through a dream, vision, apparition, or any spiritual phenomena. They can only be expressed in the physical or earthly realm, not spiritual realm.

The physical expressive nature of curses makes Satan and any of his fellow evil spirits unable to curse. Spirits do not have physical bodies. They cannot express themselves in the physical realm. That is why they seek to influence and use people to fulfill their agenda on earth.

Even the Holy Spirit seeks vessels through whom he can fulfill God’s agenda on earth. We do not see Satan with his demons on the one side and the Holy Spirit with God’s angels manifesting themselves physically to fulfill their respective agendas. They operate in the spirit realm through influence to fulfill their agendas on earth.

As Christians we’re vessels through whom the Holy Spirit works to fulfill God’s work on earth. Satan, with his fellow fallen angels, also endeavor to affect matters on earth through demonic influence, particularly in form of temptation. He also has human vessels that have fully dedicated themselves to his service. These are people in an occult category known as Satanism. My other book on breaking spells has lots more on this topic.

Satan’s role on curses: his external and indirect role

Thus Satan is not in the picture of being directly involved when it comes to curses. He is not among the sources that have the physical ability to curse.

His only involvement is through temptation and deception in his attempt to influence us to fall under God’s curse, fall under a curse from fellow people and curses of self-infliction. Temptation and deception is his bait or carrot in trying to influence us to fall whether into a curse or any other type of bondage. His role on such matters is external or indirect in nature.

That’s what he did to Adam and Eve. They were lured into a lie they ended up believing Satan’s word against God’s. When they took the lie and committed the Original Sin, God, not Satan cursed them. Satan did his job of facilitating a situation that would cause God to bring a curse on Adam and Eve. Since he’s unable to directly curse people he finds indirect ways that would facilitate people to be cursed.

“What abouts” and the importance of contextual biblical analysis

What about when “Satan went out from the presence of the Lord and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the top of his head,” Job 2:7? And much more than this happened to Job. Does this not look like a confirmation that Satan can bring curses?

The answer here is a big no. The key to ensuring one does not draw out erroneous assumptions from scripture is keeping all scripture in its context. Real estate developers say the three most important things in real estate are location, location and location. Well, we can also say in biblical analysis the three most important things are context, context and context. This is in reference to biblical analysis with the Holy Spirit in you, rather than just any person not born again.

Context is the big picture that gives meaning to the little pieces in the picture. It is defined as the set of facts or circumstances that surround a situation or event. It includes the political, social, historical, psychological, institutional, and aesthetic factors that shape the way we understand the event. Such analysis is called contextual analysis – in our case contextual biblical analysis.

Take the context out of any matter and you’d easily come up with so many interpretations (or more correctly misinterpretations). The main context of Job’s many afflictions Satan brought on him is how Satan got the legal authority to afflict Job. We know it all started when the Accuser of the Brethren (Satan) showed up in heaven. Please read the first chapter of the book of Job. It’s short.

Satan therefore received permission from God to afflict an innocent person. We know he was innocent mainly because there was a hedge around Job that prevented Satan from accusing him before God. So already one of the conditions for a curse to qualify on Job fails. He was not in a position of deserving a curse or having a legal doorway to receiving it.

“Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse does not come to rest,” Proverbs 26:2.

This is just one area to show that Job’s predicament (and eventual deliverance) was not a curse. It was a severe affliction on him but this does not necessarily imply that everything unpleasant and undesirable is a curse. A curse is only a subset of various categories of unpleasant and undesirable matters. These other types of evil and undesirable matters have their own descriptions. This was addressed in chapter 3, “What Curses are Not: Matters that do not Constitute Curses.”

Satan as an angel, a fallen Angel

God and Satan are not equals, and are nowhere as almost equals. God made Satan as his angel. His created angel rebelled and out of God’s prerogative or choice he allowed him to continue existing. He could have destroyed him or disciplined him and taken him back, but he chose none of these options. He allowed him to live and to exercise his limited abilities in rebellion.

Some fellow Christians in the body of Christ see God and Satan as almost equals. They deny it when you ask them but their preoccupation with what the devil is up to shows it. Anything one is preoccupied with or obsessed with controls him/her.

Christianity is not meant to be devil-centric. It is meant to be God-centric, Jesus-centric and Holy Spirit centered. My book on spiritual warfare, titled Major Spiritual Warfare Principles: Biblical Do’s and Don’ts of Warfare, covers on such matters. Some have taken spiritual warfare to imply being preoccupied with or obsessed with Satan.

If you’re from some of these circles that I was once in you know what I’m talking about. Before church service starts the devil must be bound and chased away to avoid any interference. Any little problem the devil is said to be up to something –let’s all yell out to stop him. You may also have read their devil-centric books as well, if you were once in such congregations.

However, they’re still our beloved siblings in the massive body of Christ. They’re not cults, worshipping Satan. They just have a wrong perspective of Satan. They make him bigger than he is and devote so much time being preoccupied with him.
