Deuteronomy 28:15 – When curses overtake you!

WHEN a curse is overtaking you it means it is getting there before you.


Curses come about because of disobedience. Deuteronomy 28:15 “However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all His commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you.” (NIV).


“It means that on the day of your marriage, the curse of broken marriage is already contending with you and has gone ahead of you on the altar, such that whatever you do to save the marriage you will still be chased away,” pastor Nellie says.


Foreign country


She said curses follow people wherever they go and get there before them. Verse 16, “you will be cursed in the city and cursed in the country,” meaning the curse is in you and wherever you go it gets there ahead of you, waiting to destroy you.


“Some people have tried to fly abroad to other cities to get away from the disturbing situations in their homes, but guess who is waiting for them at the airport in the foreign country?” she posed.


She said it is the curse waiting for them on the other side!


Pastor Nellie was teaching at Glory Tabernacle Church, Inkinye, during BBI Kajiado mission.

She said Christians mistakenly think curses come from Satan, but according to Deuteronomy 28:20, curses come from God.


“It is God sending the curse because of worshiping other gods,” she said.


Deuteronomy 28: 20, “The Lord will send on you curses, confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking him.” (NIV).


Boils of Egypt


Pastor Nellie went on to explain about incurable diseases that come as a result of curses like Cancer.


Verse 27: The Lord will afflict you with boils of Egypt and with tumors, festering sores and the itch from which you cannot be cured.


Verse 28: The Lord will afflict you with madness, blindness and confusion of mind.


“Unless the curse is broken- the person will not recover from that disease,” pastor Nellie told the congregation.

She said most of the time we think it is the devil doing it, but it is a curse in the bloodline.


Pastor Nellie said that curses are broken by turning to God in repentance.


“Like Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego, we turn to God when we notice the presence a curse in our lives,” she said.


Servants of God


She said the servants of God(Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Shadrack, Meshack and Abednego) found themselves in Babylon like everyone else and they asked themselves how it had happened despite being righteous servants of God.


“They found out that their forefathers sinned and turned to God asking for forgiveness,” she explained.


Pastor Nellie said mostly when Christians pray and they don’t get answers, they turn to wage warfare with Satan but “he is not the one who sent the curses.”


“The curse(s) come and overtake us because of our forefathers who worshipped other gods,” she said.


She said to overcome, we turn to  God in repentance asking Him to forgive us for our own sins and the sins of the forefathers that provoked Him to send the curse.
