Are you man enough?
If you husbands will love your wife as Christ loves the Church, you won't need to raise your voice or hit her, for she will love you so much that she will revere you. God Himself has ordained it: Unto the woman He said, ... your desire shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over thee. (Genesis 3:16b ACP/KJV)

Thank God for Steve,
All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
Day 17 of 40,
The most important chore a father has is the care, nurturing, teaching, protecting and loving his family. Today we will look at the special relationship a Christ serving father should have with his daughter(s). Guys, get this straight, if your daughter can't rely upon you, she will find a man she thinks she can.
Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. (2 Corinthians 11:1-4)
Now while Paul is talking about the special relationship we who are part of the Bride of Christ have with Christ, and how Paul's desire was to turn the church at Corinth over to the Lord as a chaste virgin, he was well aware that there were others out there that wanted to deflower and make this chaste virgin into a whore.
Which father wants his daughter(s) to be labeled "easy"? How many of you out there want your daughter(s) to dress in such a way as to be indistinguishable from the common street walker plying her trade? How many of you would prefer she turn to some other man for comfort and advice?
Now, how many of you would be ever so proud if when your daughter got married she was honestly wearing a white wedding gown?
Well, if you are going to have a loving, trusting, honest, protecting relationship with your daughter(s), it has to start at birth, not when she is 12 or 13. Your little girl needs to know while she is still an infant that she can trust you. That means knowing what vaccinations to refuse to be injected into that little one who is totally dependant upon you, and which, if any, you will allow her to be injected with. How important is that? Well, today, more and more states are mandating that girls, by the sixth grade, be injected with a shot that is being misrepresented to be something that prevents cervical cancer. It doesn't and it has only been around for about four years, and there is no double blind study showing it to be effective, never mind safe. No one has any idea of what the long range side effects may be.
With an infant, they have to do what you mandate, but by the time she is 12 she is quite able to think on her own and know whether she can trust your judgement or not. Your relationship with your daughter(s) must be built upon a solid foundation at a very early age. She must grow up trusting you and trusting your decisions, and trusting your advice. For as she gets older the ordering stops and the suggestions and advice replace them. As a 6 year old she has to obey, as a ten year old she is starting to discuss dad's advice, suggestions and orders with her peers, at 16 she can walk out and there are any number of men who will be more than willing, for a price, to feed and shelter her.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:1-4)
Dad, if you have sheltered that little girl, protected her, cuddled her, and made her to feel not only safe with you, but willingly dependant upon you for everything important in her life, she will honor you. This will not happen if you provoke her to anger or fail to discipline her fairly, justly and immediately.
But let me tell you, this is never going to happen if you have a wife who follows Oprah, Dr. Phil, Dr. Laura, and the god of this world instead of being a Christian wife who supports you.
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. (Ephesians 5:22-24)
Do you see that word submit, it is "hupotasso" when used in context it means to voluntarily submit, such as a Christians are to do to government. It is not a bad word, it is somewhat like the word "fear" is used in "fear the Lord." The word fear there is "yare,'" and it means to be so much in love and so reverent that you do not want to do anything that may even upset or to even cause a frown to his face. A wife, when submitting is submitting out of love, out of fear of her husband as we fear the Lord.
How can that come about? How can a man be assured that he can raise his daughter(s) correctly, to have their love and affection, to have them trust him, his decision, his judgement, and his advice? How can he get his wife to submit herself to him in all things?
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, that He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: For we are members of Jesus' body, of His flesh, and of His bones.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband. (Ephesians 5:25-33)
Men, let us pray for a right attitude concerning our work for those whom we serve, for as Christ washed the feet of His disciples, so must we also be servants unto our families. Let us pray for guidance as we raise our children, let us pray that the Lord will quiet our anger, put salve upon our jumbled nerves and help us to be the man to our families that we would want to see as husbands to our daughters. Let us pray that the Lord Jesus will be pleased and honored by our treatment, teaching, prayers for and love of our families.

The difference between a true preacher and a false preacher comes down to this. The true preacher uses God's word to convict of sin, the false preacher twist God's word to justify sin. The Lord our God, Christ Jesus be with you always, amen.
The Lord our God, Christ Jesus, be with you all and please keep your pastor and me in your prayers. Amen. My prayer daily is "Lord please bless those tenfold who bless me."
Pray for me, pray for all those who open their mouths or take pen in hand in an effort to sway public opinion.
The Lord God of the Universe, Messiah Y'shua be with you all, amen.
It is better to be a horse fly in the stables of the Lord Jesus than the CEO of hell.
