The Spirit of Rejection
"The only way to get rid of them for good is through truth. The person must submit to truth to stay free. This strips them of their legal right to be there. Fighting demons without removing their right to be there is like trying to get rid of a mighty oak tree by plucking its leaves."
I have to say with all honesty, that this was the hardest novel to read, not in terms of the writing style but based on the content. This one really hit home for me in my own personal walk. You see at 17 before I was a Christian, I had an abortion. It was for the same reason the characters in The Spirit of Rejection by Eric M Hill wanted one, but mine was successful in the procedure was complete but the internal torment never ends. Even as a believer and through confession of my sin, the enemy runs rampant in my mind with this situation and it brought me back to that moment but from another perspective. One in the spiritual sense I had never considered. That unseen realm between demons and angels, good over evil and that struggle between our salvation and our unsaved souls.
For anyone who has ever had an abortion or better yet considering one, read this novel. I hope in the end, you will make a different choice than I did, because I can tell you that this decision will haunt you forever. The emotional upheaval women go through but don't speak of, haunts us in those quiet moments and it truly is like living with hell on earth. This novel takes us into the heart of Becca Simmons who was rejected by her birth parents Heather and Vincent before she was born, and after two failed attempts to abort her, the spirit of rejection took up residence in her heart. Afterwards she was mistreated horribly by her birth parents and when her sister was born, she garnered all the attention that should have been Becca's.
She struggles with trying to find ways to appeal to her parents love, but it only comes back rejected. She feels unwanted, alone, hopeless, and a dozen other emotions and soon each demon takes up residence within her as the angels of mercy and truth intervene only when prayers from her grandparents reach out to her. They don't know the horrors that Becca has had to endure as she keeps them locked away only to face their onslaught and torment in the darkest hours of her day. There are so many take aways from this novel that really have forever changed me, the biggest being that the trials and persecutions we face are nothing in light of an eternity damned in hell without our eternal salvation in Christ and that is the theme throughout this novel. I don't think I can ever look at another human life without considering what I garnered through this novel. It is remarkable and truly life changing in its content and how beautifully it is orchestrated.
I received The Spirit of Rejection by Eric M. Hill compliments of SunHill Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from an eBook copy of this novel in exchange for my honest and unbiased personal opinions. The theme of this novel is perspective on the redeeming qualities that can only come from Jesus Christ no matter what we have done and gone through, Jesus can give us that new start in life. The alternative is chilling and not something I would wish upon my worst enemy. I rate this novel a 5 out of 5 even though it brought me to tears more times than I could count, it has forever embedded itself in my heart and soul. This is the second novel in the Demon Stronghold Series, the first being The Spirit of Fear, and fans of such Spiritual Warfare fiction like Frank Peretti will absolutely LOVE this author and series! This novel is currently only available in eBook formats for now.
