I have written about the importance of families and the importance of their foundation in God and the Holy Scriptures in the past. America is suffering many problems because they are forsaking principles God laid down from the beginning –
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. – Genesis 2:24
And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? – Matthew 19:5
God can and does bless those who obey His truths and that includes nations, as Scripture declares, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” God’s formula for marriage is one man – one woman. As the Supreme Court contemplates forsaking this formula, they should remember George Washington, our first President’s warning – ‘We cannot expect God’s continued blessings if we forsake His rules of order’ (paraphrased).
As a father, Grandfather, and Great Grandfather with a faithful wife of 56 years I can testify of God’s faithfulness. I grew up in humble circumstances, living in an old railroad car converted into a trailer home, with outdoor plumbing. But with a mother who dedicated me to the Lord. After serving my country in the Navy I finished college, became a teacher, and then a Pastor. As Scripture declares –
I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread. – Psalm 37:25
I can affirm this is true. My wife and I met on a dance floor (before we became Christians) were married 2 years later and have 8 wonderful children. We have also been blessed with many Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren, all of whom enjoy the blessing of God in their lives. Only the future can reveal what other great things they will do because of their heritage. A heritage that did not come because I or my wife were so perfect but, because the God we serve is so perfect!
I love the Word of God and especially prophesy but, I love family more and it is important to be real and enjoy what God has given along the way – so I’m including this rare video of our early years – enjoy.
