On the same day you posted (13 February),
I also posted the info below in response to a
previous post from Charles. The book "The Bondage
Breaker" referred to covers every aspect of spiritual
warfare that one could think of - including (of
course) those involving children.
Further to my description below,
some of the other things covered are:
temptation, then accusation, not
dialoguing with demons, counterfeits, the indwelling of the
Holy Spirit after the Cross,temptation boundaries, inability
to satisfy the flesh, danger of deception, testing prophecies
and gifts, dreams, ways to defend oneself, computer brain
(describes the physiology of the brain), chemical imbalance,
daily Cross, fear and bad dreams.
Then Set Free focuses on our feelings being
a product of our thought life - what we believe is
how we think.... so what needs to be changed is the way
we think - then our emotions respond
accordingly, instead of vice versa.
These books cover very well situations
like you describe and lots of other situations besides.... for
any age. There are steps to follow for anyone wanting to
have a mind set free from the enemy.... and then steps for staying
free (so important), without having to run to anyone -
except Jesus. The author has spent many years as a
Counsellor in this realm and the books are straightforward and
enlightening. We cannot help but benefit from this
There are testimonies of children freed
from fear, bad dreams. etc.
Amazon.com and Christian bookshops would
be able to help - and plenty of information on a Google search
under "The Bondage Breaker, Dr Neil T Anderson". All
part of Freedom in Christ Ministries.
I have copied my post of 13 February
referred to above below - have been fighting cyberspace
hijinks that keep making the font size in my posts too
small (or different), so hope this one is large enough to
"Suggested good reading for
Charles and others"
I want to suggest some very good reading
for Charles - books that are good for anyone to have in one's
bookshelf... to read and re-read, as required - excellent for
those who need victory in their lives and equally good for
those who have learned how to have victory, but want to
understand more - and we all need that.
These books show steps that lead to
victorious living... to being overcomers... to finding the
ability to praise God and to be thankful for everything He
allows to be thrown at us, to seeing unwelcome circumstances
as stepping stones to maturity, to resting in Christ who has
already fought all our battles for us.
The books show, in plain and inspired
language, how that it is not outward circumstances, other
people, or temptations put in our path that are the cause of
problems, but rather "our way of thinking" when confronted by
these things. God meant what He said, "subject all thoughts to
the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor 10:5) and there are so many
scriptures that tell us that He will change the way we
think - all the time.
The books are also filled with
heart-warming accounts and testimonies of those who have been
delivered from all kinds of bondages that previously held them
back from living the victorious life of an overcomer - from
young children to mature adults.
The author is qualified, both
spiritually and intellectually, and the emphasis is on Jesus
as Deliverer. The books are also written in a loving manner.
The Bondage Breaker
covers how to find one's way in the world, how to avoid living
in the shadows, one's right to be free, how to win the battle
of the mind, and how Jesus has us covered. Best to
read this book first.
The Bondage Breaker,
by Dr Neil T Anderson (Overcoming negative thoughts,
irrational feelings, and habitual sins)
Set Free - this
book includes two sections: Part 1: Released from Bondage and
Part 2: A Way of Escape (it is actually an amalgamation of two
originally separate books) - very good.
Publisher: Monarch Books
ISBN 1 85424 5740 and 1 85424 4124
The author has written other books -
helpful details are given in the books.
