Can physical objects be vehicles of curses?

The various instances given establish one important scriptural truth: In certain circumstances, both blessings and curses can be transmitted through physical objects.  On the other side, if we turn our attention from biblical practices to all the various forms of false religion and the occult, there is virtually no limit to the ways in which physical objects can become vehicles of curses.

A wide range of objects comes under this ban.  In my own case, which I have already described, the embroidered Chinese dragons exposed me to the invisible influence of a curse.  It was true that I had no intention of worshipping them.  Nevertheless, they represented something that had been an object of idolatrous worship for many centuries.  They opened a channel into my home for the evil power of pagan worship that had been practised for millennia.

Since that time, I have observed the same effect in the lives of many people under a curse.  The curse not only keeps them from receiving the blessing God is offering to them.  It also keeps them from realising that the blessing is there to receive.  Only when the Holy Spirit shines the light of Scripture into our lives do we begin to understand how the devil has been deceiving and cheating us.

Some people are happy to accept the fact that blessings are valid, but are sceptical about curses, which they associate with superstitious practices from the Dark Ages.  Such thinking is unrealistic.  We cannot focus exclusively on one aspect of opposites because it is acceptable to us, and simply ignore the other because it is unacceptable. The opposite of hot is cold; both are real.  The opposite of good is evil; both are real.  In just the same way, blessings are real and so are curses.

My ministry brings me in touch with Christians from many different backgrounds in many different lands.  I find that most of God’s people do not know how to discern between blessings and curses.  Many Christians who should be enjoying blessings are actually enduring curses.  There are two main reasons for this: First, they simply do not know how to recognise what a blessing or a curse is, or how to discern them; second, if they are under a curse, they do not understand the basis upon which they can be released.

God is the sole and supreme source of all blessings, although they may come to us through many channels.  Curses, too, often proceed from God, but he is not the sole source.  Later on, we shall deal with other sources of curses.

The curses that proceed from God are one of His main ways of bringing judgment on the rebellious, the unbelieving, and the ungodly.  The history of the human race provides a long, sad outworking of God’s curses pronounced upon such people.

Over the years it has become fashionable to suggest that there is a dichotomy between the Old Testament and the New.  According to this interpretation, the Old Testament depicts God as a God of wrath and judgment; the New depicts Him as a God of love and mercy.  In fact, however, the two Testaments are consistent with each other.  Each depicts God as being, at one and the same time, a God of mercy and of judgment.

The 68 verses of Deuteronomy 28, are devoted solely to the theme of blessings and curses, and reveal the primary cause of each. 

There is a complete list of blessings and curses at the end of this article.

In Deuteronomy 28:15, Moses states the primary cause of all curses:  “But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you.”

No limit can be set to the forms of deception practised in the occult.  As soon as one is exposed, another emerges in its place.  It is therefore impossible to give a complete or definitive list of the various types of occult practices.  It is however, possible to identify and briefly describe the following three main branches: (1) Witchcraft; (2) Divination; and (3) Sorcery.

Witchcraft is the power branch of the occult.  Its root is exposed by a brief statement in
1 Samuel 15:23: “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft.”  Witchcraft is an expression of man’s rebellion against God.  It is man’s attempt to gain his own ends without submitting to God’s Law.  Its driving force is a desire to control and people and circumstances.  To gain this end it may use either psychological pressures or psychic techniques, or a combination of both. Whenever people use verbal or non-verbal tactics to manipulate, intimidate and dominate those around them, witchcraft is at work.

In its simplest form, witchcraft is merely an expression of the corrupt, rebellious nature of fallen humanity. In Galatians 5:20 (KJV), it is listed – with idolatry – among “the works of the flesh”.  There are probably few people who have not resorted at some time or other to witchcraft in this form.

This is only the “tip of the iceberg”, however.  It is characteristic of Satan that he exploits this “work of the flesh” as an opening for supernatural, demonic power that emanates from the kingdom of darkness.  Through this opening, he moves in and takes control of men and women, making them tools of his evil purposes and slaves of his kingdom.  The result is witchcraft practised as an occult art, operating primary through spells and curses.

The other two forms of the occult – divination and sorcery – are motivated by the same basic desire; to control people and circumstances.

Divination is the knowledge branch of the occult, offering many different forms of knowledge that cannot be obtained by purely natural means.  In its commonest form, as fortune-telling, it offers supernatural knowledge of the future.  It also includes all forms of religious revelation that claim a supernatural source.

Sorcery operates through material objects or through other ways of impacting the physical senses, such as drugs or music.  In Revelation 9:21, the word for sorceries is directly derived from the Greek word for drugs.  In 2 Timothy 3:13 Paul warns that at the close of his age “evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived”.  The word translated impostors means literally “enchanters”.  Chanting – or incantation – has always been a technique of sorcery.  The contemporary drug culture, with its accompaniment of ‘heavy metal’ or just rock music, is a vivid example of two forms of sorcery working together.

The following is a brief list of various categories under which the ‘tools’ or sorcery may be classified:

Any objects associated with idolatrous worship, whether pagan or professing to be Christian.

Any objects representing any kind of false religion or cult or satanic practice.

Any objects upon which a practitioner of the occult has invoked supernatural power.  (Even if this power is ostensibly directed towards a ‘good’ purpose, such as healing, its source makes it the channel of a curse.)

Any objects that are the expression of superstition, such as ‘lucky’ (a word that is a derivative of ‘Lucifer’), figures of ‘saints’ and so on.  Please see the next article on this blog “The Occult and Cursed Objects List”.

How Blessings and Curses Operate

The forces that determine history fall into two categories; visible and invisible.  It is the interplay of these two realms that determines the course of history.  As long as we confine our attention to things that are visible and material, we will find ourselves confronted from time to time by events and situations that we cannot fully explain or control.

To the visible realm belong all the normal objects and events of the material universe.  We are all familiar with this realm and feel at home in it, even though events often do not follow the course we would wish.  For many people, the limits of their awareness do not extend further.  Yet the Bible opens a door to another, invisible realm, which is not material, but spiritual.  The forces at work in this realm exercise a continuous and decisive influence on events in the visible realm.

In 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 Paul delineates these two realms:  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and external weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.  For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

The things that belong to the visible realm are transitory and impermanent.  It is only in the invisible realm that we can find true and abiding reality.  It is in this realm, too, that we discover the force that will ultimately shape our destiny, even in the visible realm.  Paul makes it clear that success in life depends upon being able to apprehend and relate to that which is invisible and spiritual.

Both blessings and curses belong to the invisible, spiritual realm.  They are vehicles of supernatural, spiritual power.  Blessings produce good and beneficial results; curses produce bad and harmful results.  Both are major themes of Scripture.  The two words ‘blessings’ and ‘curses’ are mentioned in the Bible more than 640 times.

Two important features are common to both.  First, their effect is seldom limited to the individual.  It may extend to families, tribes, communities or whole nations.  Second, once they are released, they tend to continue from generation to generation until something happens to cancel their effects.  A number of both blessings and curses mentioned in the Bible in connection with the patriarchs have continued to work for nearly four thousand years and are still at work today.

The second feature of blessings and curses has important practical implications.  There may be forces at work in our lives that have their original in previous generations.  Consequently, we may be confronted with recurrent situations or patterns of behaviour that cannot be explained solely in terms of what has happened in our lifetimes or personal experiences.  The root case may go back a long way in time, even thousands of years.

The main vehicle of both blessings and curses is words.  Such words may be spoken or written or merely uttered inwardly.  Scripture has much to say about the power of words.  The book of Proverbs, in particular, contains many warnings as to how words may be used either for good or for evil.  Here are just a few examples:

“The hypocrite with his mouth destroys his neighbour, But through knowledge the righteous will be delivered.” {Proverbs 11:9)

“There is one who speaks like the piercings of a sword, But the tongue of the wise promotes health.” (Proverbs 12:18)

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.” (Proverbs 18:21)

The apostle James also has much to say about the use of words.  He points out that the tongue is a small member of the body, but the hardest of all to control:

“Even so is the tongue a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles!” And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature, and it is set on fire by hell. With we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing.  My brethren, these things ought not to be so.” (James 3:5-10)

Words are not, however, the only channels through which the spiritual power of blessings and curses may be transmitted.  There are various ways in which, at times, physical objects may become vehicles for this kind of power and in certain circumstances, both blessings and curses can be transmitted through physical objects.

On the other side, if we turn our attention from biblical practices to all the various forms of false religion and the occult, there is virtually no limit to the ways in which physical objects can become vehicles of curses.

Therefore you shall love the Lord your God: God commanded Israel to love Him. Love is not a matter left entirely up to our impulse or our feelings. We choose to love the Lord or not.

Additionally, this reminds us of what the Lord really wants from us – our love. We could give Him a hundred other things, but none of it really matters unless we give Him our love. As Jesus said to the Ephesian church in Revelation 2:4:

“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.” (Revelation 2:4)

If we lose love, we lose all.

And keep His charge, His statutes, His judgments, and His commandments: Love for God never goes against His word. Some people think their so-called love for Jesus allows them to disregard His commands, but this isn’t real love at all.

As Jesus said in John 14:15: If you love Me, keep My commandments. Real love for Jesus always translates into obedience.

Know today that I do not speak with your children, who have not known and who have not seen: Moses addressed the generation which saw the works of God among Israel, both in blessing and chastening. He spoke to the generation that should know and remember.

Therefore you shall keep every commandment: Remembering what God did in history should lead Israel to greater obedience, and enable them to take the Promised Land.

A land flowing with milk and honey: The sacrifices in obedience were well worth it for Israel. They had the promise of a land which was far superior to Egypt, which did not need to be artificially irrigated, but was watered by rains which God would send upon the obedient nation.

If you earnestly obey My commandments: God simply promised to provide for Israel if chose to obey Him and put Him first. As Jesus said:

“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” (Matthew 6:33).

(Deu 11:16-17) The danger of blessing: Turning from God in times of prosperity.

Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them, lest the Lord’s anger be aroused against you, and He shut up the heavens so that there be no rain, and the land yield no produce, and you perish quickly from the good land which the Lord is giving you.

Lest your heart be deceived: God had to warn Israel against the deceptions of prosperity. The person who turns from God in prosperity is simply deceived. They believe they are somehow responsible for the blessings received, and become proud and self-reliant.

The constant need for rain kept Israel in constant dependence on the Lord. It is good for us to have things that keep us in constant dependence on the Lord. We should never despise those things and long for the day when we will no longer need to depend on God as much.

Blessing is gained by keeping the Word of God always before you.

Therefore you shall lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, that your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, like the days of the heavens above the earth.

Lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul: God called Israel to not only read the Word of God and to know the Word of God, but to treasure it. In the same way, we should love God’s word and miss it when we are separated from the Word of God. We should call it to mind with longing, having laid it up in our heart and soul.

Speaking of them: God’s Word was to be the topic of their conversation. We can fairly measure our love for God’s word by how much we will talk about it with others. God doesn’t want us to have a secret love relationship with His word.

Love the Lord your God, walk in all His ways, and to hold fast to Him: All the commandments are summarized in these three phrases. Each of these speaks of more than a bare, compelled obedience; they speak of a real relationship of love between God and His people, with obedience flowing naturally from that relationship.

The choice: Blessing or cursing?

Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse: the blessing, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you today; and the curse, if you do not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside from the way which I command you today, to go after other gods which you have not known.

Behold, I set before you today a blessing and a curse: The three great elements to the Old Covenant were the law, the sacrifice, and the choice. Israel had a choice – to obey and be blessed, or to disobey and be cursed. It was a cause and effect relationship with God.

It is important to recognize that we, in Jesus Christ, do not have an Old Covenant relationship with God. We expect to be blessed, not because of our obedience, but because of our position in Jesus. The curse we deserved was laid upon Him (Galatians 3:10-14). Though there may be an inherent curse of consequences in our disobedience or even in the correcting hand of God, under the New Covenant, He does not punish us or curse us – because all that we deserved, past, present, and future, was poured out upon Jesus.

I set before you today: It was up to Israel. If they wanted to be blessed, then they should walk in obedience (as they were in the days of David and Solomon), but if they disobeyed, they would be cursed (as they were in most of the days of the later kings)

A choice was required. There was no neutral ground. God wouldn’t just “leave them alone.” It would either be blessing or cursing.

To go after other gods which you have not known: Inherent in Israel’s disobedience was idolatry. Whenever we walk in disobedience, we exalt ourselves against God – and declaring that our rules, our standards, our desires, are all more important than His. This is idolatry in its most base – and common – form.

There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.”  (Deuteronomy 18:10-12)

Notice that those who engage in these occult practices are classed in the same category with those who sacrifice their children in fire to pagan gods.  Under the law of Moses, the mandatory penalty for all such practices was death.

It is important to recognise that books are channels of occult power.  When the professing Christians in Ephesus were confronted through the ministry of Paul with the reality of Satan’s power, their reaction was dramatic:

Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed their evil deeds.  A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly.  When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas.” (Acts 19:18-19)

A drachma in those days was about a day’s wage.  At today’s rates in the United States (1973) the total amount could be as much as $200,000.

The only appropriate way to deal with such occult material is to destroy it completely – by fire or by whatever means may be most suitable – even though the value of the material destroyed may be very great.

It has already been pointed out that the occult, like the ‘immoral woman’ is constantly changing its ways.  No final or exhaustive list of occult practices can ever be offered.

Blessings and Curses

After God brought the children out of Egypt they wandered in the wilderness for forty years He led them to two mountains Mt Gerizim the mountain of ‘Blessings’ and Mt Ebal the mountain of ‘Curses’.

Moses commanded six leaders from six tribes to stand on Mt Gerizim to pronounce the ‘Blessings’ that would come upon the people ‘if’ they obeyed the commandments of God.

The other six leaders from from the remaining six tribes stood upon Mt Ebal and pronounced the ‘Curses’ if they did not obey the commandments of God.

As a believer, you are no longer under the curse(s); however, you must take authority and proclaim your freedom, in Christ Jesus. If you never speak and renounce the curse(s), then, by your silence, you are inviting the curse(s) to stay and remain a part of your blood line and generation.

All of these sins and their associated curses can be broken. You must simply apply Galatians 3:13, recognize the sins in your life, repent of the sins, renounce the curses, and get delivered of any associated demons.
