Broken Vine

Forgiving is comparable to severing the vine on this tree. It sets us free to grow, without entanglements that might one day destroy us.

Matthew 6: 9-15
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Are you having trouble forgiving? It is critical to know that to forgive is an action. It is not based on feeling. We want to share some free teachings with you on the subject of forgiving. These are messages that have been preached at Lake Hamilton Bible Camp. Perhaps some of them will help you. Each message is found on our free audio site –

97LHCD5-10 – Bill Banks – YOU MUST FORGIVE
It takes faith in order to forgive and unforgiveness can block faith. Many of the great teachings on faith were given in the context of teachings on forgiveness. Forgiveness is an important weapon in spiritual warfare and is the only way the body of Christ can come to the unity He desires. Ministry to individuals is included on this message.

96LHCD7-5 – Jack & Carol Cannada – OFFENSES
A message which should be heard repeatedly by all Christians! Offenses will come; our reaction to them will either cause us to become more Christ-like or will abort our spiritual growth. Our Christian maturity can be measured by how quickly we forgive and release the offenses and the offenders. Prayers of forgiveness and deliverance are included on this message. Wonderful!

92LHCD7-12A – Mildred Coffey – UNFORGIVENESS 1-OF-2
92LHCD7-12B – Mildred Coffey –
One of the greatest hindrances to deliverance is unforgiveness. Scripture teaches that if we do not forgive we are turned over to the tormentors. This message will challenge you to search yourself for any traces of unforgiveness that may be hiding in you. Sister Coffey shares personal experiences with unforgiveness along with scriptural teaching before the congregation is led in prayers of repentance and deliverance.

94LHCD11-2 – Jim & Mildred Coffey – JUDGMENTS & UNFORGIVENESS
When we judge others, or when we do not forgive them, we bind ourselves, them and God. We must learn to turn them loose and let God work. When we sow a seed of judgment or unforgiveness, we don’t reap just one seed but a whole harvest. We need a crop failure! Prayers of forgiveness and deliverance conclude the service.

Bitterness often hides deep within us. We deny the hurts, but don’t forgive. We do not voice our thoughts, but we dwell on them, letting them take root. We may even fool ourselves into thinking it isn’t there, but we pay the price. Unforgiveness is a major block to healing and deliverance. It binds you, the other person involved, and God. Deliverance prayers are included on this message.

96LHCD7-18A – Mildred Coffey – UNFORGIVENESS 1-OF-2
96LHCD7-18B – Mildred Coffey –
Real forgiveness is the beginning of healing. Many times we forgive with our mouths, but not with our hearts. This teaching focuses on both the need to forgive others and the need to be careful not to hurt others. This is a message we need to hear over and over again! If we walk in love, we will walk in forgiveness. Deliverance prayers are included on this message.

97LHCD3-7 – David Frech – OFFENDED
Scripture tells us that offenses will come, so we shouldn’t be surprised when they do. However, most of us become offended and hurt when offenses come. Many Christians even become offended at God. This teaching examines some of the ways in which we become offended with God and admonishes us to let go of those offenses. Failure to do so blocks deliverance and holds us back in our walk with Him. Ministry for release is included on this message.

83LHCD5-8 – Glen Miller – FORGIVENESS
We must forgive others to have God’s forgiveness. We must forgive not only with the head but also with the heart. We must forgive and forget and stand against the temptation that rises up to get revenge. As Jesus told the adulterous woman, “Neither do I condemn thee,” so we must show His grace. Mature sonship will carry His grace and extend it to others. Unforgiveness is one of the main things that hinders deliverance. We need to fear God’s judgment and be quick to forgive so the Shekinah glory can rest over us. The singing of Psalm 130 and a prayer for forgiveness close this service.

91LHCD3-3A – *Glen Milller – ARE YOU CURSED?
*Our own actions can bring curses on use when we violate God’s laws. In some cases our actions also curse our descendants, or we may be cursed by the actions of our ancestors. The Name and Blood of Jesus are given to us as our source of power and authority to break these curses. **Unforgiveness brings demons to torment us in our bodies in various ways. Unbelief prevents us from being set free from them. Repentance, forgiveness and belief allow the healing power of God to operate. Prayers for deliverance conclude the service.

93LHCD12-9 – Erma Miller – UNFORGIVENESS
It’s time to let go of everything but Jesus, including our unforgiveness, bitterness, and anger. Unforgiveness will block healing and deliverance and open the door for other demons to operate in our lives. We must not give in to the enemy, but stand up and fight. Deliverance prayers are included on this message.

90LHCD4-3A – Gene Moody – REPENT 1-of-2
90LHCD4-3B – Gene Moody –
REPENT 2-of-2
If you are a Christian, you have no right before God to retain unforgiveness. No matter what anyone has done, you must forgive. God will sometimes change the course of action for your life after you repent. It was after Ninevah repented that God cancelled His plans to destroy them. This is a penetrating study of sin and how it relates to curses. The Holy Spirit zeros in on many families of demons in this deliverance service, and ministry flows to liberate people to new heights of freedom in Jesus.

96LHCD8-3 – Dr. William Null – TEACHING ON PRAYER
After sharing his first experiences with praying for deliverance, Dr. Null gives an excellent teaching which covers the four basic types of prayer: thanksgiving, repentance, petition, and intercession. After stressing the need for forgiving others in order to pray effectively, he concludes the service with prayers of deliverance, which are included on this message.

00LHCD7-22 – Dr. William Null – BREAKING UP THE ROCKY SOIL
In the Parable of the Sower (Matt. 13:18), Jesus tells of the one who receives “seed into the stony places” where the Word cannot bear fruit because he has no “root in himself.” Here Bro. “Doc” explores the nature of two “rocks” that hinder many believers from growing into maturity – the Rock of Unforgiveness and the Rock of Bitterness. The ministry of deliverance follows.

00LHCD8-3 – Dr. William Null – THE GIFT OF FORGIVENESS
Don’t cut yourself off from God’s grace by being unforgiving! It takes more than saying, “I forgive you” to forgive. Forgiveness is a gift from God that leads to deliverance and salvation. Dr. Null explains this important message with many stories and scriptures and teaches to pray for our enemies.

01LHCD7-13 – Dr. William Null – FORGIVING
Unforgiveness is a block to healing and deliverance that many Christians are facing. It will also open the door to many harassing spirits. Godly sorrow must convict us to repent; repentances is a gift from God. Only through repentance for unforgiveness can we receive salvation, and deliverance from the anger and hurt of the offence. We must forgive others, or the Lord will not forgive us.

It is time to stop paying lip service to the necessity for repentance and forgiveness. We must stop blaming others and take responsibility for our own actions and attitudes. True repentance and forgiveness will keep us under God’s protective covering. We are deceived more easily when we do not repent.

Linda starts the Ladies’ Conference with a timely reminder to never let the sun go down on our wrath. This is a door opener for the root of bitterness. After over fifty years of being single, Linda recently married for the first time. She had to learn to work out problems in her marriage and ministry to prevent bitterness from taking root and stopping the move of God and the anointing in her home and church. Bitterness means to be “rung out, pressed down and dried out.” You cannot talk about overcoming and be complaining at the same time, for “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.” Let us put away all murmuring and bitterness, repent, and rejoice in the Lord as Linda did during the conference with her leadership in song and praise.

84LHCD12-16A – Norman Parish – REPENTANCE 1-of-2
84LHCD12-16B – Norman Parish –
Repentance is a subject many Christians are taking too lightly. Sin oftentimes is the number one factor of demonic rights and activity in your life. If more intensified repentance took place, less deliverance would be needed. Application of this message will bring a break-through to deep-seated problems in the life of the listener.

92LHCD7-19A – Norman Parish – THE ROOT OF BITTERNESS  1-of-2
92LHCD7-19B – Norman Parish –
Hezekiah, at the age of 39, was withering away, sick unto death. Bro. Parish shows the cause and the cure of this sickness. We all go through adversity in our lives. How do we respond? The wrong reaction can cause emotional, mental and physical disease. This teaching includes advice on how to handle adversity and how to remedy the results of past reactions.
