"Two days later,
Ruth arrived at my front door. I did not immediately recognize her. She
was neat and composed, with tidy hair and a calm smile. She, asked if she
could now tell me the full story which would explain her earlier
"She showed me a letter she
had just received from her son, Rufus, about whom she had talked so much.
She had failed to mention that he was a schizophrenic
confined in a mental institution some four hundred and fifty miles away!
"She told me that after storming
out of my house on that Thursday morning and then telephoning me, she had
walked about aimlessly for a long time. At the top of a hill, feeling breathless,
she had entered a church to rest. As she sat in the pew, she heard a voice
saying clearly 'You have never cut the cord of your youngest child!'
'I thought it was you, doctor'
she said, 'who had followed me into the church.' Angrily, she had looked
around, even under the altar and found no one. Then she heard the voice
again and, this time, she realized it must be God
talking to her. She fell on her knees and answered humbly 'If this
is true, Lord. I will do it now.' A strange feeling swept over her as though
she had actually taken a pair of scissors and cut the umbilical cord. She
was a changed woman.
"The youngest of her five
children, Rufus, now aged thirtyfive had been eight years old when his
father died suddenly. From that time on on, Ruth had ordered his entire
life even deciding his career and his choice of wife. His wife was now
in a sanatorium suffering from tuberculosis.
"On the fateful Thursday
afternoon, Rufus had felt a sudden surge of release. He wrote immediately
to his mother, telling her that he 'felt he was himself again' and that
he had asked the hospital for permission to spend the next weekend with
his brother. Rufus was wholly cured. His wife also had felt unusually well
on that same day and after various tests had proved negative was discharged
from the sanatorium.
"Shortly afterwards, their
baby came home from the foster home where he was being cared for. Twenty
years later, Rufus and his wife are still fit and well and Ruth has had
none of her 'heart trouble'."
Sometimes a forceful person
may be highly influenced by the dark side and may unknowingly.(it's
natural for them).use
their personality to subjugate
another. Such was the case of another of Dr. McAll's patients:."Carol
had many strange attacks occurring randomly, sometimes at long intervals,
but always after some contact with her grandmother, who treated Carol like
a favorite child."
Dr. McAll got them all together
and they prayed quietly together asking God to cut the negative bond between
Carol and her grandmother.."Carol
never had another attack. Carol changed her lifestyle and is now a nurse
and hospital ward sister."
Dr. McAll states."It
is possible to break bonds by proxy
prayer without the knowledge of the two who are bonded together."
Dr. McAll continues:."Cliff,
a schoolmaster in his thirties, was a homosexual. He was under his mother's
protection and feared any relationship not only with women, but also with
and he refused to attend the school morning assemblies. Treatment with
various drugs and many sessions with psychiatrists,
didn't help his problem at all. I approached Cliff's mother and asked her
for information about her son's early life.
"She was a good woman, very
active in her church and had been a nurse before she was married. After
much heart searching, she brought herself to tell me about her own life
and her pregnancy. At that time she had been working in a large hospital
and was already pregnant. On several occasions when on night duty, she
had allowed sexual intercourse to take place with one of the patients who
was an army chaplain.
the mother's behaviour had produced some sort of inexplicable
reaction in the unborn child which influenced
his whole life and thinking in regard to women and chaplains. It is a fact
that when the mother made her confession with true repentance.(true
repentance is a willingness to change to something better),
fully shared with the son whom she had damaged so badly before he was born,
he forgave her just as Emmanuel the Christ had been waiting to forgive
her and he immediately felt freed. The total forgiveness of the person
who was responsible by the one who has been hurt had broken the controlling
bond of fear, anger and aversion.
Cliff is now happily married and living a very full normal life.".But
for others the way is different.
"If the constricting
bond is with the dead who are unknown, the first difficulty is to identify
the controlling force. The most effective way to do this is to draw up
a Family Tree and try to establish whether there have been any excessive
behavioral problems or whether there has been any person or an occurrence
for which confession should be made to Emmanuel the Christ and forgiveness
obtained from him. This is not always easy but with patience and prayer
it can be done to a greater or lesser degree of completeness. Since it
is being done in the name of Emmanuel the Christ, even the lesser extent
will often prove to be enough to furnish sufficient evidence for the identification
of the 'controlling spirit'.
"There are two main objectives
in constructing a Family Tree: Firstly to establish whether any ancestor
showed evidence of the same unacceptable behaviour. Secondly, to ascertain
whose voice, whose unquiet spirit, is speaking to and through the person
seeking help – the patient. In the first instance, similar behaviour can
express itself in similar feelings, aversions, actions or even certain
physical diseases. Or these can manifest themselves in various phobic
"In drawing up the Family
Tree, consider who in the ancestral
line needs prayer. It's important to commit the dead to the Lord as you'll
soon see in a following example.
