The Time is Now; Mothers Go Home!

After reading the article I posted recently Growing Up Fast: Why 12 Year Old Girls are Having Sex Earlier, Rougher explaining what young children are being exposed to and the destruction it is causing in their lives and then reading Michael Pearl's article This is the Last Righteous Generation {The Pearls hear from families all around the world and know clearly what is happening with our children.}, I've been even more convinced that now is the time for mothers to go home and raise their children. Your children need your protection from the evil influences that are happening at an alarming rate in the society around us.

Pornography is available at a click of a mouse. It is evil, insidious, and destructive. It is NOT something you want your children to be exposed to when they are young, innocent and defenseless. You must not allow your children to go to sleepovers since you have NO idea what goes on behind the closed doors of other families and how protective they are of their children. You need not be afraid for we know Who is in control and Who is going to win but we must use wisdom and discernment in protecting our children.

The Bible tells us that in the last days there will be a great falling away of the church. You can see this happening all around us. Many preachers are preaching a watered-down Gospel so as not to offend and "Christian" blogs are all about grace and love, carefully avoiding judgment, sin, and condemnation plus the wrath to come for all those who refuse to repent of their evil deeds. We must NOT be afraid to speak Truth and do whatever we must do to protect our children from this evil and perverse generation.

Many earlier generations in the Bible got farther and farther away from God's ways because the parents failed to teach their children His ways continually, so each generation grew deeper into sin and worldly pleasures, thus becoming seekers of pleasures rather than seekers of God. In many churches today, we hear more about wealth and happiness than denying ourselves, being servant of righteousness and forsaking sinful lives.

Michael Pearl gives seven suggestions for protecting your children: 1) Don't send your children to private or public schools with cell phone or web access; 2) Don't allow your children to possess any online devices or know your passwords; 3) Don't allow your children to operate online media without your presence there; 4) Don't allow your children to associate with other children who are not carefully protected; 5) Warn them of Satan's devices and the power of porn; 6) Give them an example of a strong and happy marriage and give them a desire for a virtuous life as they watch you; 7) Never trust your children or anyone if their activity seems suspicious. 

Always remember, this is a spiritual battle being waged in the heavenlies for the souls of man. Put on the full armor of the Lord {Ephesians 6:10-18}. Pay careful attention to your children's environment. Don't allow evil into your home. Make sure they know that it is unwelcome in your home. Teach them God's Word and His ways continually making sure they understand that they can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens them and that God's power is so much more powerful than the enemy's. Be joyful so they will be attracted to the Jesus in you. Remind them often of who they are in Christ and all the riches they have because of Him. After all, the God of the universe lives mightily within us!

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, 
and in the power of his might.
 Put on the whole armour of God, 
that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Ephesians 6:10-11
