When someone bad happens to someone but good results from it the experience is sometimes called a blessing in disguise. But often people experience something that at first seems good but has harmful results. One example of this is people who have won a large amount of money in a lottery and then found their lives ruined as a result. I have never heard anyone call such an event a curse in disguise but it would be an accurate description.
One time Jesus encountered a curse in disguise but wasn’t hurt by it because he recognized it for what it really was.
