In essence, they don’t end with an individual, they can be inherited. The scriptures show us that curses will run for at least three (3) to four (4) generations, which is 300 to 400 years Exo. 20:3-5; Gen. 15:13-15. Therefore, every cycle of evil in one’s life or lineage is an indication of a curse, like business and career frustration, marital spell, bareness, infertility, diseases and sicknesses, addiction, indebtedness etc.
In essence, they can be broken or terminated on a life, including inherited or generational curses Col. 2:14. The way to reverse all curses is to come under God’s blessing Num. 23:8,20; Gen. 12:3. But we must understand that God’s blessings are free by availability, but there is the price-tag to access it Isa. 55:1-2.

Salvation brings the believer into the Abrahamic blessing, which is the blessing of God thereby terminating al curses Gal. 3:13-14; Acts 3:26.

The lifestyle of obedience to every instruction of God brings the believer into the blessings of God Deu. 28:1-14; Isa. 1:19. In essence, every believer that will be free from curses must sign-in to the lifestyle of obedience completely.
Faithfulness is identified in scriptures as a covenant virtue that multiplies God’s blessing on the believer Pro. 28:20. Faithfulness can be defined as the quality of doing what is right both in the open and secret, when supervised and when not Mat. 24:45-47. Faithfulness is very scarce even in the church, which is why we see many that claim to be born again yet are still reflecting curses in their life Psa. 12:1.
Righteousness invokes God’s blessing on the believer, thereby terminating all curses in his life Psa. 5:12. Righteousness is a personal choice that demands one’s commitment to become the experience of the believer. Righteousness can be costly, but it is highly rewarding Pro. 14:34.
