Fatherhood, blessing or curse?

US money funds Wuhan labThe so-called pandemic, which is largely hype, has had many long lasting effects on American life. There is the war on small business, (while large corporations who were favorable to the globalist ideals were allowed to remain open), the shutdown of the economy (which under President Trump was booming), the lockdown of individual’s right to freely assemble (and the shut down of America’s churches), and the shutdown of normal election procedures (mainly the increase in mail-in ballots which were largely fraudulent), and the shutdown of American schools. Now that an illegitimate political party has taken power in Washington D.C., they are moving fast to move America from being the Republic founded on Biblical principles it was created as to becoming a Socialist- Communist country.

critical race theoryBiden’s first executive order was to rescind President Trump’s executive order 13950, which barred the Marxist invented critical race theory in federal training and his executive order 13958, which created the 1776 Commission which sought to move U.S. education away from the radical ‘white-supremacy’ agenda. Now, Biden’s administration is seeking to invest $6 billion to Woke Education including critical race theory and ‘action civics’ which will train leftist political activists. Democrats not only want destroy our immigration policies and our economy but they also want to brain wash our children! Critical Race Theory is a Marxist idea that Democracy doesn’t matter because it emphasizes the individual when only the interests of the group are important, such as blackness over whiteness. It uses racial tensions and divisions to create turmoil. It uses this concept to destroy the current democratic system so it can install a Communist system. But, where can we find a Communist system in which individuals have any rights?

As a retired educator and a retired pastor, I have to not only sound an alarm but, also blame a sleeping church for these failures. The Church has failed to teach the scriptural mandates on family and child raising. It needs to hear once again the final prophesy of the prophet Malachi –

“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments. Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn The hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” – Mal. 4:4-6

God has not forgotten His 10 Commandments which He gave Moses on Mt. Horeb and He expects society to remember them also. When a corrupt Supreme Court removed them from the schools, every Christian parent should have removed their children from those schools as well! Or replaced the Court! The Day of the Lord is coming but, before that day God is going to send Elijah, or someone in the spirit of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children. That means to remind fathers of their responsibility to train their children in the ways of the Lord. God commanded –

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.” – Deut. 6:6, 7

“Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren,” – Deut. 4:9

Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Prov. 22:6

God gave the primary responsibility to the fathers, not the wives and certainly not the public schools! If you must have your children in the public schools then you had better be involved in what they are teaching them. And if they are teaching homosexuality or transgenderism or socialism or Wokism  or other un-truths, you had better let your voice of opposition be heard and if they won’t listen then remove your children. One day you are going to have to stand before a righteous God as your judge and give an account of how you raised your children and you won’t be able to blame the public schools for false teaching then. And God is also going to hold pastors accountable for not teaching these things! And also, don’t depend on your church to train your children, it is not their responsibility, it is yours.

then and now

(picture is now out of date)

As a father of 8 children, 29 grand children, and 10 great grand children, I know what an awesome responsibility this is and how often we fathers fail. But, we can repent and ask God for strength to fulfill His commands if we know them. The greatest help we have is the Word of God in which God’s expectations are clearly laid out for us to follow. And they must be followed first before government’s mandates, societies demands, or even our own will. God’s will must come first.

As the Lord was going to Sodom to see if the reports of it’s wickedness were true e spoke these words –

“Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? “For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the LORD, to do righteousness and justice, that the LORD may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.” – Gen. 18:17-19

In other words, Abraham won the favor of the Lord because he would train his children in the way of the Lord. The same applies to us men today. God cares about the children. God even stops hearing our prayers over our treatment of the marriage vows, and why?

“And this is the second thing you do: You cover the altar of the LORD with tears, With weeping and crying; So He does not regard the offering anymore, Nor receive it with goodwill from your hands. Yet you say, “For what reason?” Because the LORD has been witness Between you and the wife of your youth With whom you have dealt treacherously; Yet she is your companion And your wife by covenant. But did He not make them one Having a remnant of the Spirit? And why one? He seeks godly offspring. Therefore take heed to your spirit, And let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth. “For the LORD God of Israel says That He hates divorce, For it covers one’s garment with violence,” Says the LORD of hosts. “Therefore take heed to your spirit, That you do not deal treacherously.” – Mal. 2:13-16

Because when a man and a woman are joined in marriage, they produce godly offspring, and God loves children. Everything about marriage is sacred to God and in fact He enters into a covenant with each marriage. Perhaps that is why our country is having so much trouble right now, we have belittled marriage and counted it as just a fulfillment of our sexual desires. No nation is any stronger than it’s families!

I hope we will repent and turn back before it is too late, before Elijah comes and strikes the earth with a curse!
