Book Recommendations: Mary K Baxter – The Power of the Blood


Hi Everybody!

There was a question that popped up in an earlier post that I had written called The Curse is Broken and would like to open the floor for discussion.

The question came from fellow blogger and friend Margaret from Worshipandswag who had a friend (or was it a pastor??) who once said “You can’t cast out demons or loose bondage with the Blood of Jesus because that’s not what its meant for.”

Another said,  “The Blood of Jesus does everything because without the shedding of blood there is no redemption/salvation/deliverance.”

I had responded to her question in that post but would like to know other people’s opinion on the matter.  I would like to recommend a book that talks about The Power of the Blood of Jesus by Mary K Baxter that does an extensive run down on its purpose and power in our lives as Christians.

I personally do not think one should minimize the redemptive power of the blood of Jesus in our lives; however, it could be that in different Christian circles there is debate on how it is applied in our lives and to what circumstances we place emphasis on the blood of Jesus working in and through our lives. I firmly believe that the Blood is necessary in all aspects of our lives especially in the healing and deliverance ministry. I cannot understand why one would minimize its power unless they truly do not understand the purpose of the blood of Jesus. That’s why it is important to read and find clarity for things we do not understand and hence this book recommendation is a pretty good place to start if you want some foundational understanding about the Power of the blood of Jesus.

I know from what I have experienced personally in my own life, the blood of Jesus is living and powerful and shouldn’t be antiquated to be of no use in the deliverance ministry. However, it is possible to misunderstand its purpose when we misunderstand or misread the Bible concerning its redemptive power. The topic is pretty broad and extensive that I can’t really go into much depth with it here so instead, I would also like to recommend yet another book also by Mary K. Baxter called The Divine Revelation of Deliverance as a follow up to the previous book I mentioned called The Power of the Blood. She has so many books I can recommend, but for the purpose of this topic, I suggest these two to start.

Do people have any thoughts regarding the purpose and the power behind the Blood of Jesus? I would so like to know what others have to say.

Food for thought.

I have a song here to minister to you today by Shekinah Glory called Jesus.

God Bless you today Everybody!

Scriptures to Meditate

John 6:53
Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.

Ephesians 2:13
But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

Hebrews 12:24
to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.

1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

Revelation 1:5
and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood,

Hebrews 10:16-25

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”[a] 17 then He adds, “Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”[b] 18 Now where there is remission of these, there is no longer an offering for sin.

Hold Fast Your Confession

19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, 25 not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.

The Curse is Broken


Hi Everybody!

I was thinking about what to write up today and decided to touch on breaking of curses.

The Blood of Jesus that was shed for you and me at the cross breaks every curse that is in existence in your life if you just believe.

It says in the Word that:

Isaiah 53:5
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.

Isn’t it amazing! Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ took all of our shame, took all of our sins from our fore fathers and generations passed, and bore all of them on His body, shed by His precious and innocent blood so that we could all be HEALED and DELIVERED and be SET FREE from the CURSE of the Law that had kept all of us bound.  Glory be to GOD!

I believe that the Lord wants every person to know that there is no sin too great or too small that hasn’t been covered by the blood of Jesus.

Through Jesus we are forgiven because Jesus forgives ALL sin. He became cursed for us so that we no longer have to remain cursed. Jesus’ blood covers all sin, all generational curses, and all of our iniquities that has passed on from generation to generation, so that we can all be free in Christ our redeemer. Praise be to GOD!

Galatians 3:13
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” ),

Every generational curse can be broken through a process of deliverance that is initiated by first identifying the sin, confessing the sin, then repenting of the sin and then renouncing the sin and then giving the Lord praise when receiving the Lords forgiveness and freedom of guilt from the sin.

It is only through the powerful name and blood of Jesus that can break a curse operating in our lives.

Acts 2:21
And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD Shall be saved.’

Jesus Christ is Lord, so it is important that when you go through your daily lives and you find yourself struggling with habitual tendencies, or recurring patterns of behavior, or areas of sin that you have had trouble trying to break free from on your own (even after confessing it), this is when you must call on the name of JESUS and bring the issue to the forefront before the Lord and seek His face to help you break free from the sin. You cannot break free on your own without the Lords help so submit to the bondage-breaking power of Jesus and He will set you free.

You must have FAITH and BELIEVE in the power of Jesus for your healing and deliverance. <—- this is very important.

It is only through your faith that you can become whole.

John 8:36
Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

In many cases, when dealing with a curse operating in your life, deliverance maybe required to handle the issue and in such cases I strongly suggest that when you identify that this is what you need to break free from it, then you should seek mature and seasoned Christians to pray with you as well.

Sometimes, certain struggles require a lot of intercessory prayer to back you up, but that doesn’t mean you stop praying for yourself to get healed and delivered just because others are praying for you. It is very important to pray everyday so pray without ceasing and giving up and when you need help, don’t be afraid to ask for others to pray with you in agreement with whatever it is that you need covering for. There is more power in prayer when others come together with you and pray with you in agreement.

Intercessors that flow in the gifts of the healing & deliverance ministry can help you with high level curses and can instruct you through the process of your deliverance if that is what you need. Discernment is so required in this area and also consider that you may be required to fast in cases where you are dealing with strongholds that need to be broken over your life. The process of deliverance varies on a case by case basis so don’t be discouraged if your deliverance from a curse takes a little longer than others. The point is to never give up and keep your faith fixed on Jesus the author and finisher of your faith (Hebrews 12:2) for your healing and deliverance and for your breakthrough.

I would definitely recommend reading the book by Rebecca Brown called Unbroken Curses as a starter book to get some background knowledge in order to pray effectively in your prayer life in this area and I would also recommend Cindy Trimm’s book called Rules of Engagement as well if you need some resources to help you in the process of identifying the areas that you may need to pray over in your life to break the curses that you find are operating in your life or in your family’s lives.

Remember, it is only through the powerful name of Jesus that you can be set free from whatever struggle you face. Jesus defeated every curse on the cross through His blood. Never forget what Jesus did for you when you pray. Always remember the name of the Lord, Amen!

God is in the healing & deliverance business, AMEN! 

“[A Calm Resolve to Wait for the Salvation of God] To the Chief Musician. To Jeduthun. A Psalm of David. Truly my soul silently waits for God; From Him comes my salvation.” Psalm 62:1NKJV

Micah 7:18-19 (NIV)

18 Who is a God like you,
    who pardons sin and forgives the transgression
    of the remnant of his inheritance?
You do not stay angry forever
but delight to show mercy.
19 You will again have compassion on us;
you will tread our sins underfoot
and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.

I believe that there are so many people out there struggling to break curses in their lives and feel that there is no way out of their situation. God is saying, I AM THE WAY OUT because He is Jehovah Rophe (I AM HEALER; “The Lord who Heals“). Look to Jesus as the answer to your problem for He indeed is the Way the Truth and the Life (John 14:6) and He is the curse and bondage breaker, Amen! Pray continuously and never give up, because God is able to break every curse in your life, AMEN!

I have two songs for you today, one by James Fortune & FIYA called The Curse is Broken and the other by Virtue singing Healin’. May these songs minister to you today. God bless you everybody!

The Power of Speaking Blessings to Break a Curse


 

Hi Everybody!

I just finished reading the book Deliverance from Darkness by James Goll, and can tell you that it is an amazing book to read and I still recommend it. He talks about the power of blessing and describes a situation where he was ministering to a non-english speaking congregation and as he spoke a blessing in english over the congregation as he was led by the Holy Spirit, there was a woman who was paralyzed in her legs that was sitting there and she felt something like lightening enter through her body to her legs and she started to walk and then went on to dance. The congregation knew about this woman’s issue with paralysis and started to celebrate as she recieved her healing during the time James Goll was pronouncing prophetic blessings over the congregation in English (it was not translated at the time).

Today my devotional is focusing on the power of spoken word of blessings. After reading that section of James Goll’s book, the first verse of scripture that came to my mind that was also impressed upon my spirit was this:

Matthew 5:44
But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,

Luke 6:28
bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.

Romans 12:14
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.

People, this is an amazing  thing for you all to get into the practice of doing. The power of spoken words of blessing is one that is able to Heal, Deliver, and Break Curses that are operating in peoples lives. You know that saying about “Positive confession brings about possession”? In the same way…if you speak negatively…you are pronouncing curses that you will also begin to possess by a reaping method. That’s why people must learn to order their conversations right and also be mindful of how they speak to others and to guard their confessions. It is indeed a difficult thing to learn to bridle ones tongue, but that is what the Lord means when He says that:

Proverbs 18:21
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Now think back on things you’ve spoken over yourself or to others…What fruit are you eating???? This question is very important to think about because you will uncover as you learn to practice intropection and self-analyze the areas in which you have said or thought something you regret and now are reaping the consequences to such ill-spoken words.

Everything you say starts with a thought that comes from the heart that manifests in the natural as a deed.

Luke 6:45
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.

What has this got to do with talking about blessings? Blessings are spoken words with power to bring forth that which did not exist to come into existence.

Romans 4:17
(as it is written, “I have made you a father of many nations” ) in the presence of Him whom he believed—God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;

The reason for this post is to help you understand that as intercessors we can drive back the evil forces by reversing the curses by speaking and decreeing blessings (BY FAITH) that do not exist in your present situations as though they did.

So in regards to places like America…pronounce blessings in your prayers over the nation if you are interceding for the Nation. This goes for any country that you live in. Yes, we must bind things in the process, but don’t forget to pronounce blessings in your prayer life as you go about interceding for someone or for a group of people.

Even within your own family…you can overcome a curse by pronouncing blessings that did not exist as though they did. Call forth things that are not as though they are. If you see darkness invading your Church, pronounce blessings over the Church to counteract the curse that is trying to claim territory.

Curses claim territory….blessings claim territory…so ask yourself…what is existing in the territory that you are living in?????? Blessings? or curses???

I know that with the church that I attend…I always pray asking the Lord to make the church property Holy Ground, especially during special occasions and Sunday services as I claim it to be God’s territory. I plead the blood of Jesus over the Land and mark the territory Holy ground that not even witchcraft power has room to operate in it. I pray to God dismantling any ungodly alters or hidden fetishes (an occultic practice to place ungodly objects on property to curse people – usually targeting leaders)  that try to contaminate and infiltrate the church property or homes of people in the congregation. Everything must be subjected to the Power of the Holy Spirit and the blood of Jesus and everything is in subjection to the Power of our Lord Jesus Christ’s name. I even pronounce the workplace that I work  in to be Holy Ground…I claim territory for the Lord wherever I go…and trust me…when you start to decree and declare where ever you go to be Holy ground unto the Lord, you invite the presence of the Holy Spirit to invade that place and evict demonic forces. This is the level of spiritual warfare I’m in.

It doesn’t matter where I am…my cubicle is dedicated to God…my car is dedicated to God…my apartment is dedicated to God where ever my foot touches the ground, I declare it Holy in Jesus name and mark it as Holy Ground unto the Lord. Even if I’m in a city vehicle or train…I declare it Holy Ground. Angels are released each time I declare that this is Holy Ground.

Psalm 37:23
The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.

I have interceded for people who didn’t even know I was interceding for them and I have seen the fruit of my intercession for them. I see that the things that once bound them in confusion have been broken. Where anger existed, kindness has become their countenance, where pride was taking a seat, humilty has become the throne room of grace, where deception was rampant, revelation has dispelled deception…the more you pronounce blessings on people the more you allow the presence of God to enter into their lives. So to those that even curse me…I have even had witches approach me blatantly as of late… and unbeknownst to them, I pray for them that they may come to know that no matter what they try to do against me…God is more powerful than their witchcraft and God loves them so I pray that they will get saved in the Church. May they come to know that Jesus Christ is really the only Lord over their lives.

The Lord has shown me that it is important to bless those that curse you. I know the reason why He emphasizes this to me is because He knows that I can be an emotional and reactionary individual when it comes to people rubbing me the wrong way…but now I’m learning to mature in this area (still a work in progress though) and have been in the practice of pronouncing blessings to every person that tries to curse me. I want them to know that Jesus Christ is Lord.  Don’t get me wrong though, it doesn’t mean that I don’t understand the assignment or certain peoples agenda against me…I remain on the offensive at all times through prayer and fasting, but God has been teaching me on how to respond to the assignment rather than react to it. It isn’t easy to wish someone well when they hurt and dissappoint you…but remember that the power of a blessing can heal, deliver, and break curses over people’s lives. 

 It is extremely important to shield yourself from being offended by peoples actions.  You don’t want to end up cursing someone with your lips and opening up doors of unforgiveness into your life that releases serious curses that keep you bound up instead.

Practice daily repentance, forgiveness, and humility to shield your spirit from being contaminated by offence that leads you to curse someone which will ricochet back to you since it is not of God to curse someone. *this is KEY people*

 Understand the principle…everytime we curse someone…we also get cursed…everytime you bless someone, you also get blessed. Better to have blessings ricochet your way than curses.

James 3:10
Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.

So as I said about America…and for other nations…pray blessings over the land…where ever you see a curse operating in someone’s life…pronounce blessings over them to reverse the curse. Look for blessings in the bible to prophecy blessings over people and speak positive confessions over them and yourself as well.

Curses (in my opinion) are the absence of divine blessings from God, so speak blessings in your life and in other people in order to reverse the curse.

The Power of a true believing Christian is to be Blessed to be a Blessing through your spoken word that comes from the Heart that manifests in your deeds (actions), so learn to bless people with your mouth rather than curse, AMEN!

I have a song here that you may know from Fred Hammond & R.F.C called We’re Blessed. May this song minister to you today. God Bless you Everybody!

Scriptures to Meditate

Genesis 12:3
I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

Numbers 24:9
‘He bows down, he lies down as a lion; And as a lion, who shall rouse him?’ “Blessed is he who blesses you, And cursed is he who curses you.”

Deuteronomy 28 (NIV)

Blessings for Obedience

28 If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God:

You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.

The fruit of your womb will be blessed, and the crops of your land and the young of your livestock—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks.

Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed.

You will be blessed when you come in and blessed when you go out.

The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven.

The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on everything you put your hand to. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.

The Lord will establish you as his holy people, as he promised you on oath, if you keep the commands of the Lord your God and walk in obedience to him. 10 Then all the peoples on earth will see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they will fear you. 11 The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity—in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground—in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.

12 The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. 13 The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom. 14 Do not turn aside from any of the commands I give you today, to the right or to the left, following other gods and serving them.

The Lord, Our Only Savior!


Hi Everybody!

Well I’ve been contemplating about what I should write about for the past few days because there are so many things that I’d like to say plus I’m reading a lot lately. However, what I can say is that everything can and shall be said in due season. Today, I decided to talk about the Lord who is our only Savior. I read a passage in Isaiah 45 which made me tremble with reverential fear for the Lord for some reason. I can’t explain it….but this passage spoke volumes to me. Let’s Read:

ISAIAH 45: 14- 25(NKJV)

The Lord, the Only Savior

14 Thus says the Lord:

“The labor of Egypt and merchandise of Cush
And of the Sabeans, men of stature,
Shall come over to you, and they shall be yours;
They shall walk behind you,
They shall come over in chains;
And they shall bow down to you.
They will make supplication to you, saying, ‘Surely God is in you,
And there is no other;
There is no other God.’”
15 Truly You are God, who hide Yourself,
O God of Israel, the Savior!
16 They shall be ashamed
And also disgraced, all of them;
They shall go in confusion together,
Who are makers of idols.
17 But Israel shall be saved by the Lord
With an everlasting salvation;
You shall not be ashamed or disgraced
Forever and ever.

18 For thus says the Lord,
Who created the heavens,
Who is God,
Who formed the earth and made it,
Who has established it,
Who did not create it in vain,
Who formed it to be inhabited:
“I am the Lord, and there is no other.
19 I have not spoken in secret,
In a dark place of the earth;
I did not say to the seed of Jacob,
‘Seek Me in vain’;
I, the Lord, speak righteousness,
I declare things that are right.

20 “Assemble yourselves and come;
Draw near together,
You who have escaped from the nations.
They have no knowledge,
Who carry the wood of their carved image,
And pray to a god that cannot save.
21 Tell and bring forth your case;
Yes, let them take counsel together.
Who has declared this from ancient time?
Who has told it from that time?
Have not I, the Lord?
And there is no other God besides Me,
A just God and a Savior;
There is none besides Me.

22 “Look to Me, and be saved,
All you ends of the earth!
For I am God, and there is no other.

via turnbacktogod.com

23 I have sworn by Myself;
The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness,
And shall not return,
That to Me every knee shall bow,
Every tongue shall take an oath.
24 He shall say,
‘Surely in the Lord I have righteousness and strength.
To Him men shall come,
And all shall be ashamed
Who are incensed against Him.
25 In the Lord all the descendants of Israel
Shall be justified, and shall glory.’”

It is indeed a good message in the Word, but I think for me…it was more that I read it with revelation and saw visions at the same time that made me Tremble with reverential fear for the Lord.

My friends, America needs to know that  the Lord is the Only Savior. With the things that I’m seeing going on right now… there is indeed a need for that nation to be covered by prayer and fasting. The inhabitants need to fast on a serious note…

This also means that where ever you live, seek God to have mercy in the country that you reside in. Do not by any means neglect to pray for your country of residence…because the stuff I’m seeing in regards to what is happening in the USA is due to issues of apostasy, complacency and a moral decline in our present generation as lawlessness and perversion is promoted on a continual basis through various mediums in the arts and entertainment industry and now in law… All I can say is that this is just the beginning for America if the people refuse to change their ways… If you have no idea what I’m talking about  right now, refer back to a previous post I wrote about called Witchcraft in the Pews.

Like I said before…there have been ungodly decrees that have opened up a heavy unleash of witchcraft and demonic activity in the USA. This isn’t to say that this is the only country experiencing this…however, if you consider the calamities that are being released onto the land at the present time, they are being  made manifest in the physical realm as we witness an increase of senseless violence and natural disasters i.e.  The Colorado fires, the insane heat wave that killed more that 60+ people around New Jersey, the 4 day black out in the east coast, the increase of storm activity, reports of sharks swimming closer and closer to east coast beaches, and now in recent news a shooting in a Colorado theatre at the opening for the movie Batman: The Dark Knight Rises with 12 dead where one of the victims was an actual witness to a shooting that happened earlier here in Toronto in June of this year.   Violence is on the rise people…

Matthew 11:12
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.

I don’t know about you, but if there was ever a need for a nation to repent…now is the time to do so while you still can. I cannot stress this enough. People…we need to PRAY!!!!!! I know I don’t live in the USA…and it’s simple for me to ignore and turn a blind eye to a country that has nothing to do with me…but the way I see it… I don’t care where anybody comes from, as an intercessor…I find myself caring more and more for nations that are in serious spiritual trouble in knowing that the Devil is no respecter of Persons. When people open doors as large as the political realm doors to ungodly decrees….the people of that land begin to suffer. After living in a country some years ago that had or should I say still has such open doors to spiritual wickedness to afflict the people of that land because of the decrees and actions of certain corrupt political leaders, I can tell you I know what I am talking about. If you don’t understand what I’m talking about then I’d recommend reading a book concerning spiritual mapping by C. Peter Wagner called Breaking Strongholds in Your City. <—- I highly recommend this book to everyone.

The Holy Spirit in me has been grieving over what has been happening as of late. I don’t want the Lord to look down onto the land and say “I looked onto the land for the righteous and I found not even one”. As God-fearing Christians that we ought to be… I really want God to be able to say “I looked onto the land, and I found some. I shall grant mercy for MY people” . I’d much prefer that He saw many… however, I cannot ignore the darkness that I feel is sweeping over the nation. We cannot forget what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah with the way Abraham interceded ineffectively for God’s mercy against the people of Sodom & Gomorrah because of the high level of perversion and lawlessness that existed on the land. There was not even 10 righteous in the Land to grant that petition from Abraham to withhold God’s righteous judgment which was to be set against the land in Genesis 18: 16-33 & Genesis 19. We have to be more mindful and strategic when it comes to interceding more effectively, but we should intercede more in larger numbers of BELIEVING CHRISTIANS as the body of Christ since it takes two to be in agreement and whatever is asked in Jesus name it shall be done. However, the body of Christ tends to have divisions amongst itself…which is why repentance is crucial. We need restoration within the Body in order to be effective as intercessors for our nations.

So today… consider how the Lord is the only Savior  for all of us . He is a just judge and we need to cry out for God’s mercy in the land that we live in no matter where you live in the World. Seek to repent before God so that the Lord can hear the cries of the righteous in the land so that we can see Revival and draw back the evil forces that are trying to invade our lives by unrighteous decrees at a political level. The Body of Christ has to come into agreement in order for the Hand of God to move. Meditate on this today and seek God’s face today. As intercessors, this is our mandate to stand in the gap for our nations and the rulers of our nations. If no one is praying…we are basically handing our nations to the devil on a silver platter because of COMPLACENCY. We cannot afford to be complacent at such a critical time of this YEAR of Divine Government (2012). The World needs to know that Christ is the Answer. They will only see the answer when they see Christians mobilizing together in one mind, in one Spirit going before One Almighty God, Christ our Savior, all repenting in subjection to the Holy Spirit. Think about this today and pray, Amen.

What Have I been Reading Lately?


Hi Everybody!

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 :D 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!
