We have a precious inheritance from our Lord and it is our children; the Lord set His eyes over us and this is why He placed His servant at our home, the enemy is trying to instruct children and fight the offspring of the Lord trying to kill a generation of servants because if we do not take charge of rescuing our offspring the world will take them and today this is paternity:
Job 39:15-16 (ESV)I have sewed sackcloth upon my skin and have laid my strength in the dust.My face is red with weeping, and on my eyelids is deep darkness,
The world is not valuing and not taking good care of their children leaving them in the hands of the world and comes the point that they go to the world and this is the trend that the children of the world follow:
Proverbs 30:11-12 (ESV)There are those[a] who curse their fathers and do not bless their mothers. There are those who are clean in their own eyes but are not washed of their filth.
Now well when children curse their parents they will carry dishonor their parents and this will bring their days to be short.
There is a physical factor that is involved in our children’s behavior and it is physically proved that fetus of 27-week old is able to listen therefore they receive certain thing, even in womb, up to 20 years old. This means that some concepts that were learn in some point of live those concepts might be twisted. This is why they have guardians at home to guide them during the time they mature.
What we should do:
- Blood at the young heart:
Exodus 12:23 (ESV)For the Lord will pass through to strike the Egyptians, and when he sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and will not allow the destroyer to enter your houses to strike you.
The destructor is seeking at homes the firstborns and the only thing that saved them was the blood of a pure lamb and who was in charge of this: the head of the home, he was responsible.
- They must be evangelized:
Mark 16:16 (ESV)Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
We, as parents, are in charge to tell our children the Word of the Lord until it is fixed in their heart and will keep it there forever this is the way our children will know.
- Cover them inside and outside:
Genesis 6:15 (ESV)This is how you are to make it: the length of the ark 300 cubits,[a] its breadth 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits.
It is very important to cover our children inside, first, with the Word of the Lord so when time comes whe he or she is exposed he or she will put everything learnt into practice.
- Build an altarMIZBEAKJat home
Genesis 8:20 (ESV)Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and took some of every clean animal and some of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
The stones that are used to build our altar are:
- Cheek: forgiveness Mathew 6:12
- Zejut: good deeds and actions James 2:26
- Beraca: blessing Numbers 23-27
- Jayim : life
Ephesians 6:2-4 (ESV) “Honor your father and mother” (this is the first commandment with a promise),that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.”Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
It is our duty, to make our children feel good, comfortable at our home, being role models copying the Lord Jesus Christ, in this way we will guide them in right way, in the path of the Lord. Amen!
