There was a sign on the outside wall of a restaurant which read as follows, “Hire a teenager, while they still know everything!”

.

Well, what makes such a sign funny is because it is so often the case, that younger people think they know more that their parents.

.

And let’s face it! In this Antichrist society, young people are quite often encouraged to ignore the advice of their elders!

RAISING CHILDREN

.

One way that this modern-day phenomenon manifests itself is in how youngerhttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Peek-a-boo_(185009601).jpg parents ignore the sage advice of grandparents in how to raise their children.

.

What the young parents do not take into account, is that grandparents, Christian grandparents have seen many things in their longer life: things that young parents just do not realize!

SEED-TIME & HARVEST-TIME

.

One very important thing to remember is that when children are very young, they have not yet come into maturity; they have not reached the years in which the seeds sown in their hearts have come to, “harvest-time”.

.

And so, when they are still very young, the children are mostly still easy to manage. They do not yet display many character traits that will eventually be fully displayed by the time they finally reach their pre-adult years.

.

And so, it is quite often extremely difficult to give good advice to young parents, since they have not yet seen the fruit of their labors with their children.

OUR FAVORITE BABYSITTER: SATAN!

.TV indoctrination

And so, young parents will frequently set their children in front of that old standby babysitter, the television, not realizing that the TV is usually sowing bad seeds into their children’s hearts.

.

Even the best of TV shows are usually quite secularized, and little-by-little, will dwarf the spirituality of little children.

FOOLISHNESS BOUND UP IN CHILDREN’S HEARTS

.

“Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.” Proverbs 22:15

.

And if this isn’t bad enough, the foolishness which so often prevalent in many so-called, “innocent” TV shows for young children, keep many children from maturing properly.

.

And as we look around at society, it is not hard to see that a great percentage of young people have not properly matured.

HARVEST-TIME WILL TELL THE STORY!

.

But these dangers are not usually yet noticeable in little children! But just wait until they reach their teenage years!

.

And then those seeds which we have sown in our children during the formative years will eventually yield an abundant harvest when they finally reach their pre-adulthood years!

TOO LATE TO REVERSE THE DAMAGE!

.

But by the time that older children begin to manifest just what seeds were sown in their young hearts, it is by then, too late to change them!

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Texting_closeup.jpg

The damage has already been done!

.

And only prayer and conformity to Christ, will offer us any hope for God’s mercy to turn these wayward children back to the Lord.

START SOWING GOOD SEED NOW!

And so, the encouragement today is for young parents to begin sowing good seeds into the hearts of young children.

.

And then it will be a joy to see, by-and-by, those good seeds finally yield a rich, fruitful harvest of goodness and virtue in their children!

And so, dear darling soul, I must renew my commitment this morning, and pray my way through this day for all these blessings!

And give me wisdom in how to sow those good seeds, and not bad seeds into my children’s hearts!

And help me to conform my life to Thy image, that my older children might be saved!

.

This is my prayer today!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

 

.

.

FROM WHERE & TO WHERE DOES SHE FLEE?

.

(WOMAN ROTATES THROUGH THE SEASONS)

.

star-chart ursa major summerrThis page is about the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth.  This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies. 

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, nowstar-chart ursa major appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

.

The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights. 

.

These are star charts from Wikipedia, with sketches of the Woman added.
