Scripture: Genesis 3:16

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.


Todays’ message deals with the curse on Eve. It is a curse that affects all women because all women are descendants of Eve. A trained medical doctor will notice certain symptoms and signs because he is trained to recognize the picture of a disease. It is an unmistakeable picture to him because he is trained to see it. In the same way, you will now recognize the picture of the curse on Eve when you see it. Your trained eyes will pick out the unmistakeable picture that shows that a curse is working.

 Let’s talk about the Implications of the Curse on Eve

 1. “I will greatly multiply thy sorrow”: Through this curse, women were cursed to have great sorrow in this life. Apart from the sorrows of men, women are given an extra dose of sorrow by this curse.

 2. “In sorrow shalt thou bring forth children”: Through this curse, women were cursed to suffer whilst trying to conceive and have children. Great pain and suffering await the female race as they try to have children in this life.

 3. “Thy desire shall be to thy husband”: Through this curse, a great inexplicable attraction for men has descended on all women. This great attraction is actually a punishment for the disobedience in the Garden of Eden. Through their inexorable attraction to boys, girls have had many inconceivable sorrows and hardships.

 4. “He shall rule over thee”: Men dominate women in school, at work and in every kind of business. Through this curse, great hardships have descended on women. Men have dominated women and caused a lot of suffering to women. Many women have suffered intolerable hardships at the hands of men through marriage.

 The Fulfilment of the Curse of Eve

 1. “I will greatly multiply thy sorrow”: Today, women suffer more from anxiety, depression, and fear than men. Indeed, their sorrows and fears are greatly multiplied.

 Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear. From the time a girl reaches puberty until about the age of 50, she is twice as likely to suffer from anxiety and fear than a man. Women are also more likely to have multiple psychiatric disorders during their lifetime than men. Women also suffer more from depression than men.

 Indeed, depression is the most common women’s mental health problem. Depression is also far more persistent in women than in men. All these facts are a fulfilment of the curse “I will greatly multiply thy sorrow!”

2. “In sorrow shalt thou bring forth children”: Many women do not find suitable husbands to marry them. Women greatly outnumber men. The curse begins to manifest from the time a girl needs to find a husband. The struggle begins from when a woman has to find a suitor. That is why many pastors constantly pray for their church members to find husbands. A lot of women have children with men they are not married to.

The next part of the curse is fulfilled when a woman struggles to conceive. Many women struggle to have children. Thousands of hospitals exist to help women become pregnant. When women do become pregnant, the curse continues to hound them as they try to deliver these children into the world safely.

 When children are born safely into the world, another phase of the curse kicks in as they bring up these children with great hardship and sorrow. Many women struggle all their lives just to bring up their children. Many children are a great source of concern to their mothers until the very end of the mother’s lives. Indeed, how true is the curse “In sorrow shalt thou bring forth children”.

 3. “Thy desire shall be to thy husband”: Young girls are drawn to boys and their hearts are broken over and over. Today, millions of girls are attracted to boys as part of their punishment.

 The inexplicable attraction of girls like Eva Braun to a man like Adolf Hitler remains a mystery that can only be explained by a curse. Many women end up as disappointed wives who ask themselves why they even bothered to marry.

Women, irrespective of social standing, economic background, education levels and financial status are in one relationship or another. Most of the tear’s women shed comes from the pain of their relationships with men. No matter how old a woman is, she seems to want to get married. Sometimes the curse is manifested in the pain of not getting married or in the pain of not being chosen.

Last-minute thoughts as a woman, do you still feel as though you are under some kind of curse because of Eve fulfilling the curse? I am sharing this message especially for you on “How to Neutralize these Curses” because I have good news for you.
