We must speak honestly and frankly about God’s purpose, because it is the truth that will set us free from the lies of this world. We should not live in the darkness and with the lies the enemy has told us about ourselves and God. God said His people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
The world walks and lives in darkness but God’s people should walk in the light of His word. So many people perish because they do not know who they are or their created purpose. Too many have allowed the world to define their purpose and pursuits. They have fallen into the same trap as the world because they live like the world and not like children of The Most High God and according to His Kingdom.
This world system is going after the minds and hearts of the children and at a staggeringly young age. In earlier years we would read books and see movies about adults in their 30s learning about love and making life choices. Then times changed and they were having young teens learning of love and making life choices. Now we will see very young children being shown in movies and on media screens engaging in language and activities related to intimate relationships.
These tactics are tools used to ensnare the minds of these children before they are capable of understanding the impact and consequences of their actions. Close intimate acts and decisions are too heavy for these young children to shoulder without grave consequences to their own psychological and mental health. Many mature adults have difficulties navigating breakups of relationships that are physical and have mental soul ties and life’s rejections. How much more devastating for teens and young children engaging in such activities without the help of truth and sound counseling?
Many people fail to understand that an intimacy is more than a onetime act but has life impacting repercussions. Intimacy is not something that should be taken lightly and there is much to be said on this covenant that occurs between a man and a woman which is so important to God.
We must teach our children their value as children of the Most High King. They need to know they are in Christ and they are vulnerable as targets of this world system. This world will try to get them to go after a fallen way and forsake God and His Kingdom principles on earth. People have said children do not come with a handbook, but they do. God has given us His word, the Bible, to teach and instruct us and our children in the ways we should go. So few of Christ followers seek after His word and His way that many ends up living like the world and the world has lost sight of God’s kingdom on earth.
Most people are not asking God to direct their path, their lives and for Him to lead them. They are not seeking His word. God tells us ask Him and keep on asking until it be given, to seek Him and keep on seeking until we find Him; to knock and keep on knocking until the door is opened. Faith keeps going until it has the victory. Yet this fallen world system is trying to trap the minds of our young people into giving up and believing there is no hope, there is no help and that there is no God.
We must live our lives as Disciples of Christ in such a way that people will see the God in us and that His kingdom culture is real. Our lives should be a testimony that God is real. That He is actively involved in the lives of those who trust Him and He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. This is not to say we will not have challenges, problems and concerns but to know that God will be with us in it all.
God is a faithful God and we live in a The Blood Covenant of God that has been purchased by Jesus Christ. Jesus shed His blood and we are now joint heirs with Christ. Our lives should reflect God’s kingdom power, His joy, His peace and His mercy and His love for all mankind.
