All parents, please beware for your children! Why is Satan after your precious children? It’s because whatever God loves, Satan tries to destroy. Since God cherishes these little ones, the devil hates them. God tells us that our children are a blessing from Him as we read in Psalms 127:3-4, “Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth.” From the beginning, Lucifer (Satan) has been against God and His will. Even though Satan was created by God as the most powerful angel, he had so much pride in his heart to where he thought he could be like the most-high God by exalting his throne above or equal to God’s throne. God’s prophet, Isaiah, gives us a clear picture of how Lucifer fell from heaven and God’s grace due to his pride as stated in Isaiah 14:12-15, “ ‘How you are fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How you are cut down to the ground, You who weakened the nations! For you have said in your heart: I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will also sit on the mount of the congregation on the farthest sides of the north; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.’ Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the Pit.” The bible also tells us from the prophet Ezekiel that Lucifer was created by God as a perfect creation in beauty and wisdom until he gained a proud heart as stated in Ezekiel 28:12-15, “You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering, sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, emerald, and carbuncle; and crafted in gold were your settings and your engravings. On the day that you were created they were prepared. You were an anointed guardian cherub. I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; in the midst of the stones of fire you walked. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, till unrighteousness was found in you.
Satan, the dragon, being very crafty and deceptive gathered a following totaling one-third of the angels from heaven – Revelation 12:4. Satan and his fallen angels were cast out of heaven after they lost the war in heaven against Michael, the archangel, and his angels as shown in Revelation 12:7-9, “Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.” In the beginning, God created Adam and Eve to live in the garden of Eden and instructed them that they could eat of any fruit from any tree except the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Satan, the serpent, was very cunning in his deception where he tricked Eve into eating the forbidden fruit, and then Eve gave to Adam causing them to sin against God. Because of this sin, God punished Adam and Eve by expelling them from the perfect garden of Eden as we read in Genesis 3:1-6, “Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, ‘Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’ And the woman said to the serpent, ‘We may eat of the fruit of the trees in the garden, but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree that is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’ But the serpent said to the woman, ‘You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’ So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.”
Satan, the devil, is the greatest deceiver for he transforms himself into an angel of light – 2 Corinthians 11:14. He travels throughout the earth like a roaring lion seeking who he may devour – Job 1:6-7, 1 Peter 5:8. Satan sees our children as easy prey for him to devour! He always puts sinful and evil thoughts in all our hearts and minds – Mark 7:20-22, 2 Corinthians 4:4, John 13:2. Satan has been a murderer from the very beginning and is explained as the father of all lies as stated from the gospel of John 8:44, “…He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” We are told to put on the whole armor of God in order to stand against all the evil forces of Satan for we do NOT wrestle against flesh and blood as explained in Ephesians 6:11-12, “Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” We must draw closer to God by resisting the devil. When we resist the devil, he will flee from us – James 4:7. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus, Satan is a defeated foe – Hebrews 2:14-15. We see that God gives us the future prophecy of Jesus, His Son – the Messiah, in the garden of Eden where He states the seed of Eve will crush and defeat Satan. The death of Jesus on the cross is where He was bruised but defeated Satan when He was resurrected to heaven as we read in Genesis 3:15, “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.” The bible also tells us that sin and death entered the world with one man, Adam, and that Jesus died one death for the redemption of all sins for all that believe in Christ as the new spiritual covenant between God and us – Romans 5:12-21.
As parents, we must discipline our children at a young age by teaching them right from wrong and correcting them when they sin against God as stated in Proverbs 22:15, “Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; the rod of correction will drive it far from him.” We need to ensure that we are setting an example for our children by being a godly leader and by watching over our children, censoring what our children are exposed to while providing bible teachings and biblical scriptures for God’s commandments and His will for us – Deuteronomy 29:29. We must raise our children up in a godly home with godly surroundings by teaching them the word of God and true gospel message so that when they become adults they will NOT depart from it – Proverbs 22:6. We are instructed to teach God’s word and His commandments diligently to our children as we read in Deuteronomy 6:7, “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.” We are told to NOT provoke our children to anger but discipline them in the instruction of the Lord – Ephesians 6:4. We are also called to test every spirit since there are many false teachers and antichrists that are in the world that can mislead our children down the wrong path as stated in 1 John 4:1-3, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.” The devil already has total control and great influence over the world’s governments, politicians, schools & educational institutions, news, movies & tv shows, music, social media, gaming, books, etc. Satan and his demons are gaining control of the elementary after school programs by promoting Satan Clubs. What about the drag queen story hour that is promoting the LGBTQ agenda to our children and is spreading across our nation’s educational system? What about Satan’s demonic influence in several churches today? With almost everything coming under Satan’s control, he is both programming evil lies and deprogramming God’s word and teachings from the minds of our children and young adults. In these last days, the devil is targeting our children and the younger generation more than ever with many lies by creating divisions, hate, and lawlessness among families resulting in most family members falling away or rejecting God – Luke 2:16-17, 1 Timothy 4:1-2. Jesus tells us how important children are to Him when the disciples tried to rebuke them from coming to Jesus as we read in Luke 18:16-17, “But Jesus called them to Him and said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.’ ” For His angels that watch over these little ones always see the face of God – Matthew 18:10. We also see the harsh warning from Jesus to those that cause these children who believe in Him to sin and stumble as stated in Mark 9:42, “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea.”
The bible tells us (Christians) to NOT take part in the unfruitful works of the unbelievers but to expose them by revealing the truth as we read in Ephesians 5:11, “Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them.” If our daily walk with God through Jesus is lacking, then we are allowing the evil one an opportunity to devour us. The bible warns us in Ephesians 4:27,“…give no opportunity to the devil.” The devil seeks to steal, kill, and destroy us from our faithful walk with God – John 10:10. It will be a very sad day for all those that rejected God on judgement day. We must be watchful and seeking the soon return of our Lord Jesus. Parents, if your children are already grown but are still alive, it’s NOT too late for them! We must continue to pray for them daily that God will turn their heart back to Him and save them through His Son Jesus, Amen! When they are saved and born-again believers, there will be a rejoicing in heaven and on earth where they are guaranteed to spend eternity in heaven with God and Jesus – Luke 15:7, Luke 15:10, 3 John 1:4. Since we all want what’s best for our children and loved ones, how much better will it be to see all our children and loved ones in heaven with us for eternity? Amen! Oh, Father God of the Most High and Jesus, the true Savior and Son of God, we pray for these children and lift them up to You, those who do NOT know You, so that one day, if in Your will, they would come to know You personally and be saved, in Jesus Name we pray! Hallelujah to You God and Jesus our Savior! Amen!
Do you know where you will spend eternity after you die on earth? Will Jesus be your Lord and Savior or your eternal judge – John 3:15-21, Romans 2:16, 2 Timothy 4:1? Jesus says He is the narrow gate to heaven where it is difficult to find and only a few will enter by it where many will enter the easy, wide and broad gate that leads to Hell and destruction – Matthew 7:13-14. Will you experience the second eternal death (spiritual death) – Revelation 2:11, Revelation 20:6, Revelation 21:8? Do you know for sure that you are written in the eternal Lamb’s Book of Life – Revelation 3:5, Revelation 20:12-15? The place called Hell is NOT a myth and is very real and an extremely scary place – Watch this Video!
