We Wrestle Not Against Flesh & Blood! Part 5, “Satan’s Psycological War Against Our Children!”

To read part 1, go here…JANUARY 15 (We Wrestle Not Against Flesh & Blood!)

.

.

.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood,

but against principalities, against powers,

against the rulers of the darkness of this world,

against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Ephesians 6:12

.

.

.

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGWhether we know it or not, or like it or not, we Christians must face the awful truth that we are the current residents of this, the Devil’s kingdom of sin and selfishness! (see 2nd Corinthians 4:4)

.

But God has placed us here as a type of, “training and learning school”, for the purpose of purifying our hearts from every trace of lust for this selfish, proud and sinful world!

“HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS, BUT DENYING THE POWER THEREOF”

.

But this world is not just sinful, selfish and proud: it is also vcharles darwin by John Collier (artist) www.wikigallery.com public domainery deceitful!

.

You see, Satan, not wanting to be discovered, cloaks his evil kingdom with “a form of godliness” (2nd Timothy 3:5). Yes, this world has the appearance of having http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Twain1909.jpgmuch light and much truth (howbeit a counterfeit light and a counterfeit truth!)

.

Yes, this current-day world is literally teeming with philosophies, religions and ideologies which come forth as a flood, out of the mouth of the Revelation 12 Dragon!

SOCIETY NOW FLOODED WITH MANY COUNTERFEIT TRUTHS

.

Listen…“And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman (the Church-Elect), that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:15

.

Satan is that ancient Revelation 12 Dragon which spews the deceitful waters of falsehood and counterfeit truths to carry away God’s people as in a flood!

.

And just what could that “one more area” be, in which Satan persecutes God’s people?

CHILD PSYCHOLOGY

.

You see, in today’s world, there is no shortage of self-help books which offer advice on how to raise our children.

.

And many of these books are writtenhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sigmund_Freud_LIFE.jpg by worldly-minded professors with college degrees in psychology.

.

These authors are often the best and brightest and most renowned minds in the field of psychology.

.

But the problem with most of these books is that they are a product of this antichrist world. And as such, it is an anti-Bible world, to a great extent.

.

Oh no, everyone loves the softer and kinder and gentler words of the Bible!

.

But mostly, that’s as far as it goes!

“NOW THE SERPENT WAS MORE SUBTLE THAN ANY (OTHER)”

Genesis 3:1

.

And while most of these self-help books may contain much truth, the fact is that they are built of a foundation of lies!

.

They are, to a great extent, in opposition to the living a totally Christlike life!

.

Oh no, these authors do not come right out and say so.

.

But Satan is a sophisticated serpent, and makes sure the lies which he inspires within the hearts of antichrist deceivers, are extremely subtle, covert, euphemistic, and even “sugar-coated”, as they say!

SOCIETY FRAMES MISCHIEF BY MANY LAWS!

.

Now, Satan doesn’t merely put forth his child-psychology books, and rest satisfied! But hehttps://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Unisex_pictogram.jpg currently has been allowed to raise up laws which are beginning to forbid God’s people from raising their children in a biblical way…“Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?” Psalm 94:20

.

Yes, Satan works through the present-day authorities to make laws to “protect” our children from so-called, “religious fanatics”.

SATAN’S VERSION OF NORMAL

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shoppers_on_Dundas,_near_Yonge.jpgAnd thus, Satan has insidiously created his own version of “normal” in society.

.

This entire society has been designed by “the god of this world” to have the appearance of being “normal”.

.

And let’s face it! Satan has likewise been very successful by raising up unsanctified persons who truly are fanatical, thus stigmatizing Christianity by reason of their taking true Christianity to the extremes!

.

And so, most Christian parents today are extremely nervous about appearing to be fanatical in any way, for fear of losing their children to governmental “child-abuse authorities”.

“BE YE THEREFORE, WISE AS SERPENTS, AND HARMLESS AS DOVES!”

Matthew 10:16

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Atheists_at_the_Twin_Cities_Pride_Parade_2011.jpg

.

And as a result, Christian parents now must exercise extreme caution in a society which demands that we raise our children “in moderation”, not giving them too much Christianity!

.

Therefore, Christian parents must be “wise as serpents and harmless as doves” when raising children in this increasingly biblically-intolerant society.

.

We are indeed entering into a new level of subtle persecution by the vast armies of the Wicked One!

.

And even though the coming time of trouble will be just as cruel as the persecution of the Dark Ages, it will be much more refined and sophisticated!

“WHERE SIN ABOUNDED, GRACE DID MUCH MORE ABOUND!”

Romans 5:20 

.

But the Good News is, that God is always one step ahead of Satan.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Family_Portrait.jpg.

And He has provided a way of escape for Christian parents, so that they can raise their children in a godly manner, even in this period known as the Great Tribulation!

.

But like never before, today’s parenting requires a total self-sacrificing devotion to God’s Word, to unceasing prayer, and shunning as much of this selfish world as possible!

.

But God’s grace is now abounding and now available like never before!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

.

 

SIGN IN HEAVEN

.

Well, If you look up and lift up your head, you just might see a wonderful sign, which God spoke about in Revelation 12. It is a constellation of a woman. The ancients only saw it as a great bear. It is commonly known as Ursa Major . It is also known as the 7 Stars (aka, The Big Dipper), but with the addition of various other stars.

.

But with the eye of faith, it actually appears as the Revelation 12 Woman. You see, God has placed in the heavens, the symbol of His bride, the Church-Faithful.

.

Listen… “And there appeared a great wonder (sign) in heaven; a woman…And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered…And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place… from the face of the serpent. Revelation 12:1, 2, 14.

TRAVAILING IN SUMMER, FLEEING IN WINTER

.

.

In the summer night-sky, Just as this passage says, she appears as the woman-in-travail. But in the winter, she flips upside-down, to appear as the Fleeing Woman of Revelation 12, just as this passage states. But whether this Virtuous Woman is in labor pains, or fleeing to the mountains, she is the heavenly icon of God’s bride, His Church.

.

And now we need to explore how this fleeing woman in the heavens relates to us, the Church. Just like this fleeing woman, we too, need to flee from the wrath to come. But how do we flee? And where do we flee to? Well just read this article and you will find out exactly what the Bible has to say about all this.
