However, although many supposed believers may think curses can't affect them, I know this isn't true. In fact, I know that I have been affected by curses before, and I know others have as well, even though we all had strong faith in Yahweh God and His desire to protect us.
One manifestation of a curse operating in a believer's life is being afflicted by fear, night terrors or nightmares. These are from the enemy, as are many highly wicked and unexpected events in our lives that can and will rob of us of wealth, health and/or joy.
Other examples of demonic attack or oppression include being afflicted by a spirit of depression, rage, anger or jealousy, and events such as being attacked and beaten by enemies. Although many people refuse to believe it, "accidents" or falls resulting in injury often have a demonic cause! In fact, the astute believer knows that NOTHING happens by accident, and every bad thing that happens to us is the result of either:
A) a lack of sincere prayer or prayer cover from others;
B) a lack of integrity (i.e. moral laxity and the wages of sin);
C) a lack of faith and/or discernment, or;
D) a failure to listen to the Spirit of God, and care for ourselves and our environment.
Many believers that I know have experienced seemingly inexplicable and painful events over the years, including myself, and some of these events are directly related to demonic attacks, demonic oppression, individual hexes, and generational curses. I therefore think that we need to be cognizant of the fact that the demonic realm exists right alongside the realm of God's holy angels, and they are at war with each other, and despise each other.
The spirit world is filled with enemies of God that we need to be willing to defend ourselves against using principles found in Scripture. That is why some of the gifts of the Spirit are described as parts of a soldier's armor, why we are told in Scripture to pray continually, and why there are many Imprecatory Psalms that are aimed at our protection even while cursing our enemies just as they try to curse us. As it says in Scripture:
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.We all need to realize that, as long we are unswervingly standing for God's truth and justice with Yahshua and His Spirit, we are all going to be soldiers on the Front Lines of a great spiritual battle that never stops! Because this unseen war is constantly raging, we need to wise up and learn how to fight. Otherwise, we may become victims of Satan's constant and merciless attacks - attacks that will never let up until we're in Heaven.
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints...”
For this reason, we need to pray continually for ourselves and others, and never take a believer's cries for help against Satan's attacks lightly! Scripture tells us that the Devil is as a roaring lion seeking whom he can devour (1 Peter 5:8), and trust me: unsuspecting believers are his favorite meal!
