18 I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess. 19 I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; 20 that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days; and that you may dwell in the land which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give them.”
As humans we all have the freedom to choose. The choice is between life and death, blessing and cursing. Every decision that we make leads to one of these roads. Unfortunately, most children are not mature enough to make the right choice on their own. They are easily influenced by sin because sin feels good to the flesh even though it causes violence against our souls. That’s why it is our jobs to train them up by the Word and principles of God. We have to be very mindful of the people around our children. They will respect opinions of those that have influence over them, such as coaches, teachers, etc. Along with feeding them the Bible, we must also communicate with them about their daily interactions and experiences.
What is most likely to happen in this situation, instead of schools allowing the Satan clubs, they will probably ban any “religious clubs” to avoid any discrimination/freedom of religion lawsuits. The fear of man has replaced the fear of God in our country. It is a sad day when the devil does not even have to disguise himself anymore, but freely walk into our schools, government, and even churches.
Now more than ever, we need to pray for miracles, signs, and wonders. When Moses went to Pharaoh 10 times to ask for him to let God’s people go, God released a plague each time. When the plagues were released, Pharaoh’s magicians “imitated” what God had done to disprove God’s authority. The imitation is never as powerful as the original. God always wins! His power will overcome the tricks of the enemy. Satan loves to use the supernatural to lure God’s children into his worship. Why are Christians afraid to use their supernatural power and authority to manifest God’s power? We can no longer be subtle Christians. We have to be bold walking into the devil’s camp just as he unapologetically comes into ours. Satan CAN’T have our children! We have authority over him and his entire army. Now is the time to use it!
Not sure that you have authority? Not sure of the difference between the originator or the imitator? Here is the answer to both.
1 John 4:2-4
2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that[a] 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.
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
There it is. He is greater. I encourage you not to worry, but to use your power and authority against the enemy. Pray, prophesy, declare, decree, lay hands, cast out, heal, deliver, and believe! God wants to do it more than we want Him to. If we open up our mouths, He will fill it. If we stand for righteousness, He will stand with us. Stay focused. Guard your children and live according to His Word.
Father, we thank You for Your Spirit that is powerful in us. Forgive us for not operating in our authority and allowing the enemy to boldly come into our nation. Forgive us for fearing man more than we fear You. Make us doers of Your Word and not hearers only. We want to move in power manifesting miracles, signs, and wonders. Give us courage and boldness. Let us bring Your kingdom to earth everywhere that we go. Help us instill Your Word and principles into our children that they might discern the imitators and recognize the antichrist spirit. We bind up the deceiver and loose Your absolute truth over our nation. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
