Some wonder at the connection of Fatherlessness & Jezebel. Simply, because of Emotional Abandonment, a fear of abandonment is created. In turn a control personality is developed that is often seen as being 'jezebelic'.
Fatherlessness is a state created by the lack of paternal nurture. Psalm 78 as well as the writings of the Apostle Paul teaches us that the father is to be the primary nurturer in the family system. He is also to teach the children biblical truth and the ways of Yehovah. Therefore, that one's dad was 'a good dad' does not suffice. Did your father teach you the ways of Yehovah, as well as demonstrate the character of Yehovah? Did he have a passive personality? Was your mother or father, or both angry, and did it spill over onto you? Have you in turn become a passive father or mother? Have you become dominating or controlling? Are you a Mr Angry or Mrs Angry? Perhaps it is silent or passive anger? If the answer to any of these is a yes, this workbook is for you.
Often the mother is herself suffering from 'fatherlessness' and in turn this is compounded by a lack of nurture from her husband. With her own emotional needs not met, she will turn to her childen to fulfill 'her emotional needs', when in truth her function, along with her husband, should be to meet the needs of their children. Where the children become imprinted with the mothers personality, their true personality is often submerged and they become double-souled.
Many can recognise where their parents have tried to mould them to fulfill their desires, rather than find the true gifting of their children.
When the author first began to deal with this condition, so dramatic was the change, he felt it was as if he had been born again, all over again. He came off an emotional roller-coaster whereby he would seek emotional highs to keep going. In reality he had the beginnings of a manic-depressed personality (sometimes known as bi-polar). This and more was dealt with by praying through the strategies found in this book. This will often manifest in a woman as a psychotic personality, so ladies, there is freedom from this.
Another outworking of this conditon is Misogyny, whereby the man hates the woman he loves. The wife can also despise her husband and this is known as Misandry. She effectively becomes a Misogynist in a skirt.
If you or your spouse became overly bonded to either of your parents, then it is possible you took the place of their wife or husband at an emotional level. This we have termed Spiritual Incest. The effect of this on your marriage relationship can cause you to be more of a brother or sister to your spouse. Many have found the prayer strategies for this to be particuarly effective.
As we walk you through the Scriptures, and with proven prayer strategies, you will walk into Freedom and healing.
The resulting testimonies from around the world from those who have prayed through this workbook have been remarkable. We look forward to hearing yours!
