The Influence of Older Children on Younger Ones

Dr. Davis recommends this video 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 first borns. When second borns got into trouble, it was usually because they were following their older siblings. It is no quirk of nature that first borns are often very strong willed. God wanted that strong will turned in the right direction so that the influence of the parents and the 1st born cause the 2nd born to move in the right direction; then the influence of the parents, 1st born, and 2nd born move the 3rd born in the right direction, etc. There are 10 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.

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. Ladies also must be careful because of the powerful influence they have over men. For those of us being influenced, we must be careful to guard ourselves against wrong influences, especially from good sources. We should also plan our lives so as to continue our influences after we are gone.

Hard Work: The Foundation of Character

The first occurrence of the word “work” in the Bible was not in relation to man, but was in relation to God Himself. Work is godly because God is the original worker. Laziness is ungodly. Work is foundational because God began everything by working. The very first thing God did for Adam was given him work to do. To get Adam ready for Eve God gave him more work to do. So a man who is not a hard worker is not ready to get married! When Adam disobeyed God, he not only created a sin problem, he also began a character crisis. To deal with that crisis, God increased the amount of work that man had to do. One of the main ways you develop character in children is by training them to be diligent workers using their hands to do hard work.

Integrity: The Parent of Character

Many people recognize the importance of character, but not as many people recognize that integrity is more important than character. In fact, integrity is the parent of character. It is the producer of character. If a person lacking in character will get integrity then they will eventually get character. But it is possible to have certain character qualities but not keep them because of a lack of integrity.

Fear Series

The Fear Series Includes: What Fear Does and How to Conquer Fear and Develop Courage.

What Fear Does:
A truth that the Bible makes very clear is that we do not have to fear man. In fact, “The fear of man bringeth a snare.” Fear causes us to focus on negative things rather than positive things - on what we can't do for God instead of on what we can do. Fear also causes us to exaggerate the negative. The children of Israel said they were like grasshoppers in comparison to the Canaanites. No man is a grasshopper compared to any other man, but their fear caused the Israelites to spend forty years wandering in the wilderness when they could have conquered the land of Canaan. Worse yet, fear causes us to act irrationally. When fearful leaders do not confront sin, then the hearts of followers get hardened by their sin. The one healthy fear is the fear of the Lord.

How to Conquer Fear and Develop Courage:

Since Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden there has never been an absence of fear for man. In fact, God does not mean for us to be totally without fear. We either have the right kind of fear or the wrong kind of ear. The wrong kind of fear is a powerful, negative, potentially destructive force. The right kind of fear is a powerful, positive, energizing, motivating force. The key to conquering destructive fear (in all its varied forms) is to replace the fear of man with the fear of God. The fear of God: gives wisdom and knowledge; prolongs days; delivers from evil; gives confidence; protects from danger; and is a treasure and a choice!

Changing the Heart of a Rebel

***Quantity pricing reflected at Checkout.***


Many testimonies from around the world attest to the effectiveness of the Biblical principles expounded in this message. Parents of younger children say that the message has helped them understand parenting so as to prevent problems with their children. Some parents say they listen to the message every few weeks to help them stay "on track" as a parent. Still other parents have found the message to be the "lifeline" to stop a descent into destruction and save the life and future of their rebellious teen.

Knowing When to Let Go

This message is the sequel to the message, “Changing the Heart of a Rebel.” Most parents “let go” of a rebellious child when they should not, and don’t “let go” when they should.

Love must be strong enough to deal with rebellion and also strong enough to “let go” when unstoppable consequences start to come. The same “love” that isn’t strong enough to pay the price to deal with a child’s rebellion, also is often not strong enough to “let go” when the consequences of rebellion start to come.

In 1 Chronicles 13, Uzza put forth his hand to steady the ark of the covenant when it started to fall off the cart that was transporting it. When He did so, God smote him and he died. Uzza should have “let go” and let the ark fall!

Parents bail rebellious children out of jail, pay their fines, give them financial support, etc. Our government violates the same principle in other ways.

This message has principles every Christian may profit from hearing, but it is especially helpful for parents of rebels 18 or older and parents who wonder about their options with a problem child.

How to Help Rebellious Adopted or Stepchildren

Children want to give their hearts to their parents. But there is a frightening exception to that truth. Children who are not living with biological parents may feel a sense of “rootlessness” and confusion that hinders parents from being able to deal with their rebellion. Moses, Samuel, Esther, Daniel, Jesus, and Joseph were separated from their parents and raised by someone other than their biological parents.
The key thing for adoptive, step parents and their children to do is to properly ask the question, “Why did God let this happen in my life?” Once this question is asked and then answered from God’s point of view, negative situations can be viewed in a positive light.
This message may also be a help to pastors’ & missionaries’ children, as well as people who have experienced divorce, disease, death, etc.

This message answers the question, “Why God Lets Things Happen?”

My Son, Give Me Thine Heart

The “heart” was not made to be kept. God made the heart in such a way that fulfillment comes in giving it away. If I give my heart away, I have given my life away! This is the reason Satan does all he can to get us to give our hearts to anyone except those God intends.
Absalom is the Bible illustration of a young man who thought his father did not love him and therefore rebelled against his father. With him went 200 men who were "simpleminded and knew not anything." Those men were comparable to friends in our day who do not really know the things they think they know about one another.

You will never forget the story of the girl who said to her Mother “I hate you. I wish you were dead!”
You will never forget the midnight trip to the African river.
You will never forget the face in the casket.


As a Parent that might be dealing with a rebel problem in a child, your first reaction may be to show this DVD to your rebel thinking it will result in immediate repentance and change. It may actually do the direct opposite of what you are wanting and cause them to become worse. It is for that reason that we beg you to listen to our counsel when we say, “PLEASE DO NOT SHOW ONLY THIS DVD TO A REBEL RIGHT AWAY!” Before purchasing this product, if you know that you're dealing with a rebellion problem, please read our "Help for Rebels" information sheet located under the Free Resources section of our website.

The Mistakes Rebels Make

Many stories in the Bible deal with the problem of rebellion. But perhaps no other story is as detailed and descriptive as the story of Absalom’s rebellion against his father David. In the final outcome, 20,000 men died along with Absalom. He himself died a frightening death at the hands of General Joab while hanging from the boughs of an oak tree.
Absalom’s story highlights the mistakes rebels make:
  1. The mistake of justifying bitterness.
  2. The mistake of using the rebellion itself as a tool of vengeance.
  3. The mistake of not realizing the massive confusion that accompanies rebellion.
  4. The mistake of not realizing how much they are loved.
  5. The mistake of assuming that friends gotten by deceit will remain loyal.
  6. The mistake of not seeing the end of their rebellion.
  7. The mistake of thinking that life will be fine whether or not you deal with sin.
