Something is on my heart to share and it does not pertain to me.
Because my children are grown and now have families of their own.
So I have no idea who needs to read this, but I will just write it as God gives it.
Who on my friends list believe that God is True and man is a liar? Who on my friends list believe we should obey God rather than man?
If you do not believe either one of these statements to be true, then I will not question why you are on my friends list because only God knows…
Ok so here goes~
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
Only be on your guard and diligently watch yourselves, so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen, and so that they do not slip from your heart as long as you live. Teach them to your children and grandchildren.
Teach them to your children, speaking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
If you are a born again Christian and a parent you take these Words very seriously. You know that the gifts (your children) that God has given you is your responsibility to teach, and raise them in the ways of the LORD.
If you have not been serving God since their infancy it will not be easy because they are older, but, it can and must be done.
You must be consistent and be an in your face parent. Your child should actually ask themselves if you have eyes in the back of your head. Your child before doing anything should actually think twice about it, because they fear you finding out.
The first way to begin training them, is to live the new life God has given you in front of them. He gave you a new heart and a right spirit in you, it is not a “new leaf” you turned over.
Your life should be changed completely and must be lived in front of everyone. Never swaying, but always serving.
The things you used to do they will notice you no longer do them. Lying drinking, drugs, partying, fighting, “sleepovers” you know what I am referring too.
In the beginning depending on the ages, they will love the change. But depending on the ages they will also hate the changes. They will begin to fight you tooth and nail and rebel greatly against you.
They will become something you honestly never thought they would be like; liars, manipulators, deceivers, hateful, and down right selfish, cruel beings. They will talk evil about you to others because you no longer allow them free reign to do as thou wilt without consequences.
When the LORD begins to open your eyes to certain (almost all) music is a way Satan gets a hold of them, so you begin to monitor what they are listening too. After all it is your duty to keep your children and your home safe.
Then you begin to realize the movies and t.v. shows they watch has nudity, swearing, adultery, fornication, lies, murder, hatred, homosexuality and you know the LORD is not pleased at all that you allow such filth in your home let alone your children to partake of it.
Next the video games they play, have foul language, murder, and witchcraft in it.
Then He will show you the things that they are participating with on the internet.
Satan is not everywhere but his influence is.
The things I am mentioning mean little to those not serving God with their whole heart, or not serving at all, and they will not see any harm in this stuff.
But God says there is great harm and for you to be raising them in His ways not the worlds ways.
The children these days are influenced by many things. But those things I am talking about, you being a Christian should NOT ALLOW them in your home. Regardless if you have children or not. You have that authority, it is your duty to see to that nothing God hates enters your home.
There are many voices in this world we live in also, that you as a Christian parent must contend with concerning your children.
If you are not able to homeschool your child, which I recommend greatly to do if given the chance, then you must send them to school.
In these schools they are not only being influenced by other children that do not have Christian parents, but they are being taught ungodly things and hearing that they are the master of their own destiny, and that their parents can’t tell them what to do, they have the right to refuse to do what their parent says. Oh, and if they spank you, you report it and they will be punished because to correct a child is harmful and quenches their freedom of expression.
They are being taught regardless of the gender you are born with that you have the right to decide and change it. Also they are being taught that “sex” is love instead of fleshly lust. Love is unconditional and that can only come from God. Sex is not love, I love everyone, but I am not having sex with any of them to show it! I pray for them or with them. They teach that God does not exist and you answer to noone.
Then they have extended family influences that let them do what they want. After all they are only children once! No restrictions, no supervision, no authority either.
A lot of people these days would rather have a child as a friend than to be a good example to them!
If they are old enough to work a job, then they have co-workers and bosses that they see can do whatever they want and not have boundaries that restrain them.
What does God say when it comes to all of this? He is not saying it takes a village to raise a child!
It takes Godly parents and people in the lives of their children respecting the wishes and ways the Christian parent is raising them.
It takes those who are in the lives of your children to keep their opinions to themselves. To not go against things that they know you, and more importantly GOD HATES!
Wanna know what the wisest man that lived said?
13Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. 14For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
There is One that was wiser yet, and this is what He has to say when it comes to little children.
And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.
Do you take the warning of Jesus serious?
As a Christian parent, if someone is discrediting your way of raising your children in the LORD, they are not just discrediting you but the Lord also. When this happens you must first go to the person who is doing it, and discuss it.
If they get angry and disagree then you are to not allow your child around that person!!!
I do not care if it is their grandma, aunt, uncle or cousin!
Your responsibility is to raise your children in the ways of the LORD and protect them.
Not only would it better for the one causing the doubt in your child’s mind not to have been born, but you allowing this kind of influence in their lives to happen you will be judged as well.
If you are criticizing, down talking, laughing, or mocking a child’s parent in how they are raising them WOE TO YOU!!!
Trust me you cannot take on God and win!
As Christian parents your ministry is those children. You will answer to God Almighty on how you have done it.
People that are not born again will call you a fanatic, crazy, some will even say unloving because you won’t let your children “have fun” like other kids.
Let me tell you something right now, if you honestly believe watching children being molested, women raped, innocent slaughtered, foul language, bloodshed, hatred, drunkenness, how to manipulate, drugs, addiction and whoredom fun…then you are a wicked individual!
But you ask, where did we say that?
If you are allowing children to watch this stuff in movies, tv, internet, or play video games with it infused, then in Gods eyes it IS NO DIFFERENT than letting it happen in person!
You allow it on the media venues in your home you may as well ask someone to come into your home and molest a child in front of these children! IT IS THE SAME THING IN GODS EYES!
These things ARE NOT FUN! They are wickedness and desensitizating of children at a young age!!!
Pulling a child dead out of a vehicle be cause they were drunk is not FUN!
Walking into a room and seeing a child swinging hanging by their neck is not FUN!
Hearing a child died from a drug overdose is NOT FUN!
Finding out that your child killed their own child through abortion is NOT FUN!!!
Just exactly what fun is a Christian parent removing from their children by raising them in the ways of the LORD?
PLEASE TELL ME?
Parents you will not be awarded best parent of the year as you raise your children in the LORD.
However, when they grow up and are adults, they will thank you!!
Mine has and that I owe all to the LORD!
People allowing their children to do what they want, without Christ will see the damage they caused! If a child does not know the hope that is in Christ Jesus because a family member persuaded them that to be Godly is uncool then when that child kills themself, from feeling hopeless you will HAVE THEIR BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS!
God will not be mocked!
You better begin to think when it comes to discrediting God in the eyes of children.
You wanna live unrighteously and full of wickedness that is your choice, but do not dare to mold a child’s way of thinking against God for your pleasure or opinion.
