“And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him”
…as seen in Luke 2:40 and Luke 2:52 when speaking of Jesus as a child. The Bible also records the Prophet Samuel(1 Samuel 2:21) in such a way, and also John the Baptist (Luke 1:15).
These verses create a poetic description of a child coming-of-age with a zeal for God, and a desire to walk in Truth. This zeal is of course planted through the instruction and guidance of their parents. The aim is to create an unbroken chain of good, God-fearing people who are moral, selfless, kind, gracious, generous and a living example of God’s redemptive love for humanity. This is the natural order, this is how things ought to be. If everyone simply loved Truth and Righteous living this world would look a whole lot less fallen.
Unfortunately, as our culture has forsaken God, the failings of parents have become the collective failings of multiple generations. As a result, we are now facing at least three consecutive generations, all exponentially becoming progressively more and more wicked. We really are in a horrible state in this country. As a result we, those who love God, and love walking in His Truths are beset on all sides by a preditorial and very destructive system. The system we have now is very much a system that hates God, hates Truth, and hates justice seeking only to destroy you mind, body and souls. The worldly systems are truly the playground of Satan.
Here is 10 ways you can identify these traps in our society and save yourself some major grief by disassociating with these things.
Our public school systems and institutions of higher learning are absolutely useless, and have become a wasteland of God-hating indoctrination. This is the first place you begin to lose your children’s minds and allow the enemy to sabotage your child’s Christian upbringing. It is here they become familiar with pop-culture perversity through the influence of their friends, which is then reinforced by their liberal teachers and curriculums. You would be wise to keep your kids away from any and all public school educated kids, families and teachers seeing they have totally embraced worldly knowledge, and have accepted the seeds of destruction into their lives. If you want to lose your kids to rebellion leave them in the care of this failed multi-generational dumpster fire called public education.
Understand there are certain responsibilities that parents take on when they have children, one of which is both the spiritual instruction and education of their children. I suggest the Biblical method of taking total responsibility for the upbringing and education of your children through homeschooling by any means possible.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6
Hollywood through the use of TV, movies and music has radically changed our culture for the worst. The celebration and glorification of death, occultism, perversity, and spiritual confusion has eaten away at the moral fabric of our society to the point of total depravity. Generations of kids are swept into destructive sub-cultures that steal their souls, identities, ambitions, and moral reasoning. Turn off the T.V. and renew your mind with Word of God daily.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2
Trapped in Political Ideologies
The political divide in this country is just sad. We have millions of grown adults that have so self-identified with political parties they have ceased to think for themselves. Nothing is sadder than watching grown adults take on the lies and worldviews of greedy, power hungry politicians and make them their own. They are politicians and they say and do anything to create more power for themselves, and if that means exploiting their constituents then that is exactly what they do. Liberals and Conservatives are both guilty of this. By failing to discern the evil their leaders are caught up in they give themselves over to such divisiveness they are literally at blows with one another in the street. Politicians are the men that stay awake at night plotting how to rob the taxpayers of their money and substance; only fools give themselves over to political demagoguery to the point that the lose themselves. In 1 Timothy Paul say’s to pray for our leaders in hopes they rule in the fear of God, he doesn’t say accept their brand of insanity when they do wicked.
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 1 Timothy 2:1-2
Sex, Drugs and Alcohol
Advertisers and American pop culture influences are responsibility for creating a freakish obsession with party culture. The promise of perpetual fun has caused the arrested development of millions in this country. Like impetuous children, they pursue pleasure and entertainment to the point of hurting themselves, their families and our society as a whole. It is a sickness that has cost the lives of thousands and has levied a huge cost on future generations. I suggest you flee from these things if you have any self-decency and ambitions in this world. The party lifestyle is rife with pain, whether it manifests in the form of drug or alcohol abuse, an unplanned pregnancy, or worse, death. You will pay a massive price eventually for such excess.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. Romans 13: 12-14
Committing Baby Murder
In an extenuation of the above point, if you flirt with the party lifestyle, sleeping around the consequences of such can be an unplanned pregnancy. Society tells us if this happens no-big-deal simply have an abortion and the crisis is averted. What they don’t tell you about is the emotional devastation that results when you participate in the heinously awful crime of baby murder. After the fact, you have to either become extremely calloused like the liberals to the act of abortion, or you fall on your knees begging forgiveness of the Creator in the recognition of the heinous crime committed against your unborn child. There is no middle-ground on this issue, and millions of woman and men are party to the murder of their own children. God and the Bible has lots to say about the value of life, and if you value your own life and the life of your own children then teach them to stay away from the party lifestyle at all costs.
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalms 127:
The military used to be a place where you could go to learn a skill, acquire good habits and discipline and be in a position to defend America from its enemies. Now the military is nothing more than a co-opted mercenary force for greedy bankers. The dignity left the military the moment soldiers allowed politicians to send them into undeclared wars of aggression, and that is all we have had for the last century, a series of undeclared banker wars. PTSD and veteran suicides are through the roof as result of military men having to fight unjust unconscionable wars. The guilt that they come back with consumes their souls, and so many turn to suicide as an escape. The military is the last place a wise parent would encourage their children to go in our day and age. This once noble institution is a blight on the world, causing un-told amounts of destruction and chaos, this is not something anyone should want to be party too.
Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another. Romans 14:9
Love of Money
Money and power has become a god in our society, and many will stop at nothing to achieve both. The halls of financial power are filled with compromised individuals, and their love of money allows the justification of untold levels of evil. This love obviously fills our societal institutions, but it also fills our churches and many Christians have fallen prey to its siren song. The amount of debt incurred by families, churches and businesses has reached a catastrophic level. The Bible says the debtor is a slave of the lender and in this country our obsession with money has created millions of slaves. The shackles of the Big Banks are tightly fitted around the necks of the American working class. If the American citizens would have maintained a healthy and Biblical outlook on money then this enslavement would have been impossible. Teach your children about money, show them through examples how money corrupts, and enslaves virtually everyone and everything given over to its power. Having a Biblical understanding on the pitfalls of money will keep them out of debt and free from the power of the bankers.
The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender. Proverbs 22:7
At some point in the 70’s our food has been secretly adulterated with poisons that affect our fertility and health in attempt to limit the population. Big Food and Big Oil in total greed have entered into a diabolic arrangement where Big Oil sells its toxic waste to farmers as pesticides and fertilizers instead of getting rid of it properly. As a result of this un-holy alliance the health and well-being of the average citizen has plummeted. Obviously God did not intend for our food to be manufactured and laced with unnatural and highly toxic ingredients. As a result of so many ignoring God’s method of farming and provision, defaulting to the food like products produced by mega-corps people have come to accept sickness as the new norm. You would be wise to eat totally organic, and ignore all of the health recommendations by the FDA and CDC seeing they have totally compromised themselves to the power of these lobbies. We have a running joke in my family about commercial food. We call it Illuminati food, because it is literally engineered by the elite to destroy the health of those that consume it. But hey, if you want butt-cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and a host of auto-immune disorders go right ahead and ignore this warning and consume commercial products. God said look to nature for your food, not to industries that are purposefully sacrificing your health for their own profit and greed.
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. Genesis 1:29-30
Big Pharma and the Medical mafia is an absolute hell-hole of mis-information, mis-diagnosis, and mis-treatments. Outside of emergency services, there is nothing good about the medical establishment. From the beginning of life to the end of life this intuition has co-opted every natural process that God created and supplanted it with man-made quackery that has obscene costs associated with it. You would be wise to do everything in your power to avoid hospitals and doctors, who will kill you faster than anything on this planet with their over medication, chemical burning and unnecessary surgeries. The best way to stay out of their death-like grip is to eat only organic foods, and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
The Bible calls the modern medical establishment pharmakia, and is associated with witch-craft. The Greek word “pharmakia” literally means “drugs”, and appears five times in the New Testament: in Gal 5:20, Rev 9:21, 18:23, 21:8, and 22:15.
My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Proverbs 4:20-22
The church in America is a sad joke. Pastors and parishioners have fallen prey to every worldly evil. They have become legalistic, greedy, debt-ridden and follow after the traditions of man in the same way the Pharisees did in Jesus’ time. What is even worse is they have so watered down the Gospel and Biblical truth they are having absolutely no affect on the degraded culture at large. In fact it can be said that the pastors and the failing church is directly responsible for the failings of our society as keepers of the soul of our republic. To attend a church that uses entertainment, gaudy buildings and children’s programs to attract congregates to stay relevant is a huge spiritual failing. Not only have they compromised themselves to the world, they have also shied away from addressing important issues like abortion, un-just war, sodomy and other important Biblical topics to the hurt of our nation. Cowards and con men occupy the positions of preachers in this country, and to submit yourself to these types of people is to become a coward yourself. The Bible makes it clear, when this country is judged, that judgment will start at the Church and spread out to all of society as the source of the moral failings in this country. You would be wise to find a preacher that speaks out powerfully on the evils of our society, and unabashedly preaches the Gospel of Christ.
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 1 Peter 4:17-18
Bonus Tip: Buy a gun and learn to defend yourself. As society becomes more evil you might be placed in a position in which self-defense is necessary. You need to be ready and willing to exercise this God given right at anytime in protection of yourself and family. Jesus commanded this to us, take heed.
Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. Luke 22:36
I have just given you a list of things that will help you and your family stay off the path that leads to destruction. Everything above you can research and verify for yourself. If you want to avoid the pain associated with these things, then by all means begin today and recommit your body and your spirit to God, and his narrow path. The world offers nothing but destruction, the path of God leads to a healthy life and towards your eternal salvation in the personage of Jesus Christ. We should always strive to be like Christ, that it might be recorded about us that we too were “strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him”
