My desire is that parents would take on that role of those that instruct, motivate, guide and and help form in their children a character that is solid and secure in God. Children need to know they hold immense value to the Lord and to every future society.
Teaching our children about the truths of God’s love and power can enable the to ward of the confusion that is imposed by today’s negative ideologies.
All this can be done in age appropriate levels.
We do not frighten children with things that are confusing and make them doubt their image and identity. Children in the Judeo/Christian faith are taught about an Eternal God and Heavenly Father. They are taught that they have value and are precious in God’s sight. From creation to the plan of salvation there is a process that allows for questions and for knowledge to be attained.
The world today is full of statements that are taught and must be accepted. Just because some theory is taught does not make it a fact.
Biology is clear. Anatomy and physiology can be seen and examined. Bodies are very particular in their skeletal structure.
The pelvis and the placement of bones is designed by God. It is not changed by ideologies.
Children must learn facts. Feelinga and emotions cannot determine what is and isn’t. The psyche is formed by the nurture and nature, by atmosphere and environment and upbringing.
Confusion taught will lead to a faulty development of thw psyche. Identity is not soemthing we choose. We are born in to it.
Personality and traits are also innate.
Character and development comes with time instruction and experience through guidance. Thid is built in the home and in time. Morals and values are toncome from the home and family relationships and the family’s particualr faith.
When we expose children to false statements and promote suggestive ideologies, this is coersion. Manipulating and language that leads to identity confusion and self doubt is not education. It does not to be imposed on our children.
A family can raise a child in a given belief system. But faith will come when that child grows and makes their own decision to follow or question that religion and that faith.
This is necessary for true faith in Judaism and in Christianity. A reasoning and an understanding of God’s plan to give us a hope and a future is the main focus of these faiths. (Jeremiah 29:11)
An understanding that the God of Heaven created us with love and that each person can find the meaning of life. In Genesis chapters 1 to 3 we can find the origin of mankind and their fall.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
The fall of man and our need to connect with God Genesis 2 to 3.
but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die. Genesis 2:17
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned.
All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all
To fall on Him.
God’s love and personal connection to us.
For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
The truth is to be discovered, heard, believed and confessed.
It is not forced or imposed or manipulated.
Our children need to hear that their bodies are designed with a purpose and with special abilities particular to their physical design.
The process of teaching a child how awesome it is to be a boy, is a joyful thing. Their body has physical differences not only on the exterior part of the body, but also, on the internal parts of the body. For example, a man and a woman both have baldders. Their structure however and urethra are different.
The urethra is longer in men (8 inches) than in women (1.5 inches).
Why is this important?
God designed it this way. Men were made to work in the field and to hunt and to go and spend time away from the comforts of the home. They were intensionally designed for leadership and labor that is soecific. That is not some arbitrary idea. It is not an opinion. It is fact.
Women are by nature and hormonally designed to carry children. They have the emotional make up to nurture and provide a sense of belonging for children. The womb found in a female body is not found within the body of a man. Their hormonal makeup is different.
Follicle – stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, estrogen, and progesterone. These are designed to naturally regulate the functions of the reproductive system in the body of a woman. These allow the process for the ovaries to the egg that will be fertilized by the male sperm.
Wonderful truths and facts that cannot be altered by ideologies or imposed structures.
Today, we find that society has gone so far that there is clear evidence of wickedness. It is not hidden or subtle. It is an evil that has been festering since the fall of Man. But rest assured, God created human beings to have a desire and an inclination for the divine.
God placed eternity in the heart of mankind. The idea and pull to worship something greater than themselves is innate. Our children need us to instill in them their worth and value given to them by a Loving Heavenly Father. This Eternal God that both The Jews and the Christians worship.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. Ecclesiastes 3:11
The idea that the enemy of our souls desperately seeks to thwart humanity by confusing the young and perpetuating relationships that cannot produce families. Is not a new concept. The evil one has been trying to kill off man kind promoting hatred, divisions, prejudice and greed. These have led to wars and many peoppe suffering because of the sin that entered the world when Adam and Eve were deceived and sinned.
The devil’s plan to destroy humanity has gotten more intense and crafty. His desire to end the lives of children is not a new one. We see the history of his failed plans throughout God’s word.
When Moses was born and the children of Israel were in captivity, the Pharoah at the time demanded that all children under the age of two should be killed.
The Lord was faithful and gave his people a deliverer. Moses was hidden and unharmed. The Lord had orchestrated that the Princess of Egypt would see him floating in a basket woven by his mother. That daughter of that ruler took him un to herself and raised him in the very palace of those who kept God’s people captive. (Exodus 2:10 , Ex. 4, Deuteronomy 34, Hebrews 11:23-27).
He became their liberator. Nothing can destroy the plan of the Almighty.
We also see how the enemy tried desperately to end the purpose and plan of Redemption, by trying to end the life of that Baby in the Manger.
Yes we read about the same practice was crime was commited during the time of Jesus birth. The devil did not want there to be any hope for a future. In that Baby Jesus was the power of Life. Jesus grew and died the rose again and became the path to the Father for all people. That is the gospel.
Then Herod, when he saw that he was deceived by the wise men, was exceedingly angry; and he sent forth and put to death all the male children who were in Bethlehem and in all its districts, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the wise men.
Today, we see how abortion has become a norm. They call it women’s rughts. But in truth it is the same card being played by old split foot himself.
The destruction of the family is the devil’s main objective.
You see his hatred for mankind continues. He seems to believe he is a formidable foe to the Almighty. Blinded by his ambition to overtake God’s throne he continues to repeat the same crimes against humanity becuase of his hatred for God.
We see and understand that our greatest gift form the Lord is our generations raised in the knowledge of Christ Jesus.
This Generation Z is a generation called to see the goodness of God. They are to stand up and question every authority that stsnds against the will of God.
We need to understand that our children are arrows as it were.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are children born in one’s youth. Psalm 127:4
They are to be as weapons in God’s hands against the enemy. For thid reason the enemy wants to destroy them before they reach their maturity and complete their mission.
We saw Asbury and how the Lord poured out his Spirit on the young people as they prayed and worshiped and sang revival broke out. We see countless young people being vocal about their faith in Jesus. This is what the enemy wants to shit them up. He wants to destroy their capacity to learn their identity.
When we see young people standing uo in schools and praying it creates a level of animosity for those who have been placed to hinder God’s work.
But let’s be clear. When our kids are empowered at home with the knowledge of their worth and their value and the truth of how much God loves them, when they know the gospel of truth; they are aware that the scriptures tell them, they can be unstoppable.
Then he answered and spoke unto me, saying…
“‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ saith the Lord of hosts.” Zachariah 4:6
When they are equiped with the whole armour of God.
“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”
When we have done our job to instruct them and pray for them and lead them, there will be no stopping them. They will know the truth that the God they learned of and have decided to serve id Great and Mighty and able to deliver them.
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4
We have these precious sons and daughters that will usher in a revival as they are taught the truth.
So, what of our confused children? What about those caught in the whirlwind of these destructive ideologies?
Pray! Pray for each one. Pray and do not stop praying.
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ. Philippians 1:6
Therefore confess the sins to one another and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man being made effective prevails much. James 5:16
Listen, I am not perfect. I have failed God on many levels. I too was not always the parent that did it all right. But the God I serve is able to take our orayers and right the wrongs of our past. The truth of God’s Word can cause us to become prayer warriors that intercede for our kids.
They can overcome. The love of God is able to make them strong and courageous and powerful in God.
So, do not let go. Hold on tight to prayer and to your family. We are arrows in God’s hands. We cna be the change, the8 word, the love and the mercy others need to see. We can be the light shining in the midst of this dark confused world.
For God told mankind to multiply anf to be fruitful. Lets grow fruit that is strong and able to stand the test if time.
Let us tell our children how much the Lord loves them. So, much so, that he gave his only son for them. Jesus went to the cross to save them. They have this truth and because of it, they know God has a plan for their lives. And if they have made mistakes and fallen, love them back in to the fold. Tell them God forgives. The Lord is slow to anger and rich in mercy. Remind them, that He is the God that gives them newness of life. They can return to Jesus. He will not cast them out. He will restore them.
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9
My prayer is that we stand as disciples of Christ and show forth the Truth that Saves. That Truth that Loves us Totally, is Jesus.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6
Tell them the Lord has a purpose and plan for them. They are precious in God’s sight.
He designed them specifically and especially. He made each one unique and with diverse capacities, abilities and talents in order to give them a full life that will be fulfilling and thrilling in Christ.
Let them know How Precious They Are to The Lord.
They are to be the light of the world and the salt of the earth speaking the truth about God’s love and forgoveness and hope.
Let them know Jesus and the power of his resurrection. Then they will be empowered to know their identity and to be sure of their faith in Cbrist Jesus.
They are of a Divine Design.
For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to not harm you but to give you a hope anf a future. Jeremiah 29:11
