Ministry Sheets >> Bastard's Curse
In ministry, we have found the bastard's curse present when a person was conceived out of wedlock. Spirits of rejection, abandonment and fear come into the child even in the womb under these circumstances. The child knows whether or not they were a wanted baby.
 
It has been suggested that the wording “bastard's curse” is harsh and perhaps “fatherless curse” should be used instead. 
 
This is not really a "Fatherless Curse", someone born without a father... but a curse, almost always intergenerational in nature, in which the child is conceived out of wedlock. For the bastard, it is a sin unknowingly and unwillingly participated in, but brings the spirit of shame and guilt (rape comes under the same category with the same consequences) . The name is harsh and might better be spoken of as something else... but I believe it is important that it not be a euphemism that is misleading. 
 
How do you minister to the bastard’s curse?
 
1) First, in dealing with the bastard's curse, the person must forgive their mother and father for their sin and also forgive them for how it has affected that person’s life all those years.
 
2) Second, the person needs to deal with the sins of guilt, shame, rejection, fear and abandonment. and very possibly the whole stronghold of bitterness (unforgiveness, resentment, retaliation, anger/wrath, hate violence and murder) by appropriating the finished work of our Lord, and casting out the spirits (The 8 Rs or Blue Card it). Then break off the bastard's curse that has come down through the generations.
 
3) Third, then it is important that they ask the Heavenly Father to heal their heart in this area, and to give them the blessing of a father; in this case the Heavenly Father.
 
4) Finally, if the person has accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, they are no longer a bastard, but are now a son or daughter of God.  It is helpful to minister along this line and help them receive this as a heart matter. It is helpful to minister how God saw them before the foundation of the world:
 
Eph 1:4  according as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,
Eph 1:5  having predestined us to the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,
 
In dealing with the parent of a child born or conceived out of wedlock, the parent must ask forgiveness from the child and then bless them, administering similar words used in the Fathers Love ministry.
