What Have I been Reading Lately?
I know, I haven’t had much time lately for a decent devotional but I will get cracking eventually. Right now I’m reading many books of Deliverance and Healing. I just finished reading Cindy Jacobs book called Deliver Us From Evil. Let me tell you that that book is phenomenal! It is eye opening and I will definitely recommend it here for y’all to go pick it up in your Christian book store. It is one book that was mentioned in Rebecca Greenwood’s book Let Our Children Go! if you read my previous post called War- Ship We will sing songs of Deliverance.
Cindy Jacobs does in an in depth analysis of different occultic practices that are infiltrating in the subtle activities that our children are engaging themselves in presently and confronts issues with witchcraft practices subtly being introduced through movies, music , cartoons and video games. I would read it along with Rebecca’s book since it reveals a little bit more of certain things we take for granted like reading horoscopes and the like. It’s opened up my eyes and some things you may not have even considered to be occultic leads you to repent about it. For example thoughts about reincarnation…as subtle as it is, it is something like that which is what I consider to be a vain imagination that needs to be repented about if you engage is such thoughts.
2 Corinthians 10:5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
I found myself repenting over a lot of stuff since some of the things she explains were done out of ignorance. It’s worth a read and it will definitely help you to break curses that you probably have no clue are operating in your life right now if you participated in certain activities like something as innocent as playing Dungeons and Dragons or playing with a Ouija board etc. You’ll have to seek God and repent of these type of things because such things leave so much legal ground for curses to operate in ones life which can later become generational if one refuses to break the curse through repentance. Knowledge is power people…don’t be a proverbial Hosea 4:6 -
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge,
I also will reject you from being priest for Me;
Because you have forgotten the law of your God,
I also will forget your children.
Cindy Jacobs also explains things a little more intricately in her book and of course there are more books to discover on the topic of deliverance. In fact, if you’re serious, I totally recommend another book called The Handbook for Spiritual Warfare by Dr. Ed Murphy. It’s about 600+ pages but it’s awesome and I consider it to be an easy read. Actually, I have many books to recommend, but I won’t over-burden y’all with my book recommendations if you’re not interested in spiritual warfare, healing and deliverance ministry. If you are, I’ll probably make a special post just for book recommendations and probably do some book reviews periodically. I’ve been thinking about it for a while but everything depends on peoples level of interest on the topic so it’s just food for thought in terms of future posts. I typically recommend books I’ve read mostly or have heard was really good by others who have read the book that they recommend to me to read. I prefer recommending books I’ve read though, so that’s what I will probably do for now.
Right now I even recommend James Goll’s book Deliverance from Darkness which I’m still reading at the moment, and let me tell you, his book is also quite phenomenal as well. He takes a biblical perspective regarding deliverance and the type of spirits people may encounter and how to deal with people needing deliverance. Healing is important to every individual, but like Cindy said in her forward in Rebecca Greenwood’s book Let Our children Go!, there comes a time when some things just need to be cast out because of the very nature of the problem. Counseling can only take you so far at times, but then there is that need for deliverance in certain situations that are beyond counseling. Anyway, I’m still a scholar in this whole topic, so these are the books I’m recommending at the moment if you are an intercessor specifically, in fact I think since we are all called to intercede everybody should be in the same bandwagon. no more putting your head in the sand thinking such problems will just magically disappear. We need to be more knowledgeable about this type of stuff if we are a warfaring church. I’ve read a lot more books, but these ones are pretty awesome so far. I have other books I’d recommend from Peter Horrobin, and Charles T. Kraft but I’ve got to read them first before I say anything. I also would consider that anyone reading any of these books that I recommend or if you find other books on your own regarding the topic of deliverance, I highly suggest that you first pray to have your mind covered because it is warfare for even me to be reading these books. Always pray for covering for every Christian book that you read. Well, I think that’s my last book recommendation for now lol I think I’m getting carried away here lol. I guess you can tell that I love reading
Have an Amazing day Everybody! God Bless y’all!
