Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole” (Galatians 3:13 New International Version).
The curse of the law came as punishment because of man’s sin. God doesn’t punish us, He just recognizes the choices we have made and allows the consequences to come into our lives. We’ve been redeemed from the curse, however. Jesus is the ultimate curse breaker. What does that mean? First, it means that our sins are forgiven. Secondly, it means that everything sin gives birth to in our lives, we are free from those consequences. Sickness is defeated by the stripes of Jesus. Mental oppression and torment was taken on the cross. Addiction and family illnesses were broken on the cross. The curses that were to be passed down can and will be broken when we turn to Jesus.
