Jotham’s Curse

The sixth of the seven curses that parallels the giver gift is called Jotham's curse.

The identify lie is, "I am significant or legitimate because I have institutional power to build with."

The manifestation of the curse is that your institution is destroyed from within by betrayal of trusted members. This betrayal from within has as its root cause has the fact that you or somebody in your family line or institutional line, violated a covenant relationship.

The devouring is seen, when the same people who are supposed to be in a covenant relationship with you, turn around and rob you.

The blessing is that you will be able to establish a social structure which synergistically releases life into the culture.

You may be able to possess your birthright alone, but you cannot be a person of destiny outside of community. It takes a social structure to synergistically release life on a level of being a person of destiny.

Found in Judges 9:1-57

RENUNCIATION

Almighty God and Heavenly Father, I proclaim that you are the God of covenant; you are the God of community; you are the God of institutions; you are the God of government.

I proclaim that you have designed human institutions to be life giving, to be generational, to be strategic.

I proclaim that institutions which deliver death instead of life, are the work of the enemy and not the work of your hands.
   
I ask you to open the books in my generational line and I confess, reject and renounce the sins of ingratitude, to those who have been life givers to us.

I confess the sin of covenant breaking regarding life giving relationships.
I confess, reject and renounce the sin of sedition and the sin of lawlessness.

Father, I repudiate the lie that legitimacy can come from having power through an institution.

I acknowledge the truth that you have designed some institutions to have great power.

I acknowledge the truth that institutions were used by you to transform societies, but I/we reject the deception, that legitimacy comes through institutional power.

Father, we have seen the curse of Jotham in operation in our lives and in our society. The death which it brings is painful and yet I acknowledge, that you are a just God and that you only empower Jotham’s curse where there has been covenant breaking. And so I accept the justice of your judgement.

But Father, I also embrace the justice of your restoration and we proclaim that because of the blood of the Lamb and the word of our confession, those iniquities are now under the blood and the enemy is disempowered.

So, in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command every demonic entity which has been operating through Jotham’s curse to leave me, my family line, my ministry, my businesses, my society, and my physical and spiritual seed for a thousand generations.

I ask, Father God, that you will teach us about covenant; that you will empower us to be covenant keepers.

I ask that you will release the blessing of a freedom of movement in my life of my being able to walk on a well oiled road.
 
I bless the institutions to which we are assigned. I ask for your grace, to be able to stay in covenant with those who are covenant breakers.

I ask for the grace to finish the course which you have laid out for us. I ask you now to release the blessings which have been blocked and which is rightfully mine, and to release them into my life, and my family, my ministry, my businesses, my institutions, and I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, because he did keep covenant and because he did finish his course.

Amen

I really appreciate you posting these curses. There is so much more to the redemptive gifts than I initially thought. Could be unpacking this for a very long time.

Thank you again.
