Why Satan Wants Your 1st Born" A quick perusal of the Scriptures will demonstrate clearly and powerfully that God wanted all the first things- the firstborn sheep, donkey, or ox; the first of the crops, fruits, and juices; the first of any money; the first day of the week; the first year of marriage; and the firstborn child or son. It is also clear that SATAN WANTS WHAT GOD WANTS. Those who understand the Bible and history understand that this especially applies to the firstborn child or son. Do you know why pastors and Christian leaders have three times as much difficulty training their firstborns? Do you know the consequences of not giving God the first things? Do you know the blessings firstborns may expect who give their lives to God? Entire families should watch this video, but especially parents and their firstborn children. Running time: 59 minutes "The Influence of Older Children on Younger Ones" Dr. Davis recommends this message in DVD as his most important message for entire families to watch together. The main reason the prodigal son was a rebel was because he was rejected by his older brother. Most rebels in the Bible and in history were not second-borns, but firstborns. When second-borns got into trouble, it was usually because they were following their older siblings. It is no quirk of nature that firstborns are often very strong willed. God wanted that strong will turned in the right direction so that the influence of the parents and the firstborn cause the second-born to move in the right direction; then the influence of the parents, firstborn, and second-born move the third-born in the right direction, etc. There are ten key principles from III John that older children should apply in relation to younger children which will bring joy to their own hearts, as well as sweet harmony to their entire family. This message ends with three moving illustrations of the powerful influence of older children on younger ones. Running time: 59 minutes "The Kingdom of Your Influence" Interestingly, the word "influence" as we use it is not even found in the Scriptures. The word God uses is "rule". A person's influence, then, is the kingdom over which he rules. Both Godly and ungodly people are given areas to rule, and the extent of a person's rule is measured out to him by God. Since it is impossible for someone to simply walk away from his area of influence, parents, older siblings and grandparents must all be very careful to make sure their influence is powerfully positive rather than negative. We should also plan our lives so as to continue our influences after we are gone. "How to Use Acceptance to Build Others" Every person's life is affected by the powerful forces of rejection and acceptance. The harshest language possible from the soul of one person to the soul of another person is the language of rejection. The sweetest language possible from the soul of one person to the soul of another person is the language of acceptance. Children who get unconditional acceptance at home aren't nearly as likely to ruin their lives by looking for it elsewhere. Christians should seek to give acceptance to everyone whom God brings across their paths. A smile is a key tool that communicates acceptance. Small talk and proper, friendly touches also say, "I care about you. I accept you." Christians who reject others usually do so because they haven't learned to distinguish between acceptance and approval. Jesus didn't approve of the Samaritan woman having five husbands, but He accepted her as a woman who needed His help. Running time: 62 minutes
