Today's Christian thought: Wednesday November 26th, 2003
There is nothing that God the creator loves, that satan the god of hated does not despise. The family is a perfect example. Throughout the Bible God refers to the family as a dad, a mom, kids, grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins and others through the extended family. For, in God's eyes the family is built upon a dad, a mom and their children. In this family, God has instructed that dads and moms should be both the primary care givers and the primary teachers.
Over the years we have seen the 'it' of Revelation sixteen, work to undermine and change that which God has designed concerning the family. Most recently we see this happening through courts legislating in favor of homosexual and lesbian heads of households. For you see, God the Father loves the family, but hates the acts of homosexuality and lesbianism. Therefore it would only seem right in the eyes of those who belong to satan that families should center around not a dad and mom, but two homosexuals or lesbians. With the destruction of the basic family agenda well underway, what is the next logical step for the great deceiver to take? Logically the next step would be to make dad and mom look like buffoons in the eyes of their children.
While I am neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet, I would say that there is something on the horizon, something being taught to your children, by one of the various arms of the 'it' of Revelation 18, that will, when your children turn to you for help in understanding it, so baffle you that you look like and idiot when you try to either explain it or help them understand it. I'm not sure how satan will do this. I don't know if it will come from television, the news, the courts, or some government subdivision like the school system. But this I do know, satan will not ever give up on destroying the basic fabric of the family, the bond between a dad, a mom and their God given children.
While, short of a revival on the scope of that witnessed here in the 1740's and 50's, I see no way to alter or slow down this headlong charge along this course laid out by satan to destroy the basic fabric of the family. But there are verses instructing the Christian family on how to avoid this upcoming destruction. A path for them and their children to remain as part of the remnant of Christ.
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath Righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath Light with darkness? (2Corinthians 6:14)
Now therefore give not your daughters unto their sons, neither take their daughters unto your sons, nor seek their peace or their wealth forever: that ye may be strong, and eat the good of the land, and leave it for an inheritance to your children forever. (Ezra 9:12)
Through abortion, euthanasia, homosexuality, pornography, clothing and the teaching of an ultra left wing liberal anti-Christian agenda in the schools, the media and the news sources, satan has but one frontier left in the destruction of the basic fiber of the family. And that is to cause children to loose any respect they still have for their parents. Watch for it, for satan wants your children and he will never stop till he owns them body and soul. Watch for something new that comes up that totally baffles you and them. Something that in order for them to understand it, they will have to turn to someone other than you. Perhaps a new language or a new and contrary to logic form of math. Something they must understand but something that you can not help them with.
The only defense against satan is Christ, find a church that uses Scripture to convict of sin not one that uses scripture to justify sin. And be diligent in keeping and eye on your children, looking for this thing that they must understand that you can not help them with, something they may not even like, but must for some reason understand. The Lord be with those of you who love and protect your children.
Pray for my friend Mac, pray for Rush and Michael Savage. While the Lord does not need the platforms and audiences that Rush and Michael have, they, Rush, Michael and their audiences need the Lord.
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.
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.
