Derek Prince - This Is What Happens If You Curse The Jewish People
We’re going on from this list, Genesis chapter 12, we have God’s call to Abraham. We need to look at that because it has something significant in it. God calls Abraham out, promises various things, and in verse three (this is the end of the call) He says to Abraham: I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you. So there’s both a blessing and a curse. I believe that was necessary because whenever God singles out a man to be blessed, that man becomes the object of all sorts of evil satanic forces. So God incorporated a protection. He said to Abraham: Anyone who curses you, I will curse.
Now we won’t go on but in Genesis 27:29 that protection is extended by Isaac to Jacob in his father’s blessing. Cursed be everyone who curses you, Jacob. So you’ll see that line is Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, which became what nation? Israel, that’s right. And what is the generic name for cursing or speaking against or abusing the Jewish people? Antisemitism. In my personal opinion, antisemitism almost invariably is followed by a curse for an individual, for a nation. And if you look at the history of the last nineteen centuries, you see nation after nation after nation that came under a curse because they cursed the Jewish people.
Ruth and I have a very good friend who is a Palestinian Arab born in Haifa, an American citizen who had a dramatic encounter with Jesus some years ago. I led him into the baptism of the Holy Spirit. He was a millionaire at the time. After he was saved, listen to this, he became bankrupt. And he had the sense to say: God, what are you telling me? God said: I’m dealing with your pride. But God also showed him something, that he and all his ancestors had regularly cursed the Jewish people. And believe me, I’ve lived amongst the Arabs in Palestine. It’s normal; they all do it basically, with a few exceptions. God showed him that if he would change that attitude he would restore his blessing. He repented and asked God to give him love for the Jewish people. And he is a Palestinian Arab who is more pro-Israel than most Jews. And he’s now a multi-millionaire. See? How important it is to discover the curses that are at work in your life.
