Why Don’t Kids Come With Instructions?

.

.

.

.

.

.

A very well-known TV talk-show host made the following statement: “Ihttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:La_Bible,_Notre-Dame_du_Taur,_septembre_2011.jpgt’s too bad that kids don’t come with an instruction manual!”

.

But really, what she should have said was: “It’s too bad that parents don’t read the instruction manual, that comes with our kids!”

.

Yes, kids do come with an instruction manual, and as we all really know, it’s called the Bible!

.

But unfortunately, not too many people carefully read it, these days.

DID BEN FRANKLIN WRITE THE BIBLE?

.

What evidence is there that we Christians are not studying our Bibles enough?

.

Well, for instance, a major Us dollar 100 front wikimedia public domainChristian survey group found that a vast majority of church-goers in America thought that “God helps those who help themselves”, was actually a verse from the Bible!

.

How’s that for a startling dose of reality!?!

.

Of course, this saying, (“God helps those who help themselves”), came from such sources as Ben Franklin, but not the Bible! But what a telling statement this survey makes on the condition of Christendom today!

AGE OF PERMISSIVENESShttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sigmund_Freud_LIFE.jpg

.

But instead of making the Bible our trust, we often listen to psychologists.

.

But it is psychologists who would have us take a rather lenient approach to raising our children. “Oh”, they say, “we don’t want to damage our little ones by imposing too many restrictive boundaries upon them!”

.

While it’s true that Christian parents need to guard against going to fanatical extremes, the fact is, the vast majority of church-going parents who claim to love Jesus, are doing just the opposite!

.

We are throwing our kids to the wolves, by letting the world groom them (This just might be the same vast majority who think that “God helps those who help themselves”.)

HOME-SCHOOL?

.

Yes, a recent survey found that most Christian parents send their kids to public schooling!

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

But the fact is, many could easily send their kids to a Christian school, or even better yet, home-school their children.

.

Oh yes, there are many who cannot afford Christian schooling. And many single parents cannot stay at home to home-school their children.

.

And yet, there are many who could make the necessary sacrifices, that would allow their children to be home-schooled.

.

True, it takes a special mindset and personality to successfully home-school one’s children. But quite often, in some communities, there are cooperative groups that share responsibilities, like this photo indicates.

WE’RE AT WAR!!!

.

What psychologists just don’t consider is, that this world is a spiritual battlefield. TV indoctrination

.

Their relaxed, liberal, laissez-faire approach to raising children is based on the idea that there is no such thing as a Devil.

.

But make no mistake! The enemy of our souls has your house and my house surrounded by evil angels! And it is a 100% guarantee, the Satan and his minions are not taking a laissez-faire attitude toward your kids, and my kids! Yes, they are busy, busy, busy, around-the-clock, 24/7/365, making sure that each and every member of our household will forfeit their soul on Judgment Day!

.

And tragically, by the time that Satan is finished training up our children, they will be so thoroughly indoctrinated into this world-system, that they could never understand the Bible even if they did read it!

JOEL CRIES OUT TODAY!

.

But there is Good News! God has provided a way out of this terrible anJoel the Prophet www.wikipaintings.com public domaind frightful dilemma! 

.

Listen to this promise from Joel, the Prophet…“Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders…Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O LORD, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them…” Joel 2:16-18

.

As this above passage reveals, God will be jealous for His land, and pity His people! And just as this above passage says, God’s people are being ruled over by the heathen (unbelievers).

.

Oh that we would awake to this, our horrible condition and dire circumstances!

THE DAY OF THE LORD

.

If only God’s people (individually) will cast away all our cherished idols, and turnhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Full_Book_of_Isaiah_2006-06-06.jpg to the Lord with all the heart, God is mercifully willing to return to us.

.

And this very day we are now living in was prophesied, far back in the Book of Isaiah! 

.

Listen to Isaiah’s prophecy concerning our day… “In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.” Isaiah 2:20, 21.

.

Yes, if I am really serious about my children’s Salvation, then I should be willing to make any and every necessary sacrifice on their behalf.

.

But if I’m not willing, then just what does that really say about my own Salvation?

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP

 

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-mstaplesost of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid. Then find the next pyramid to its right (south). Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation. These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP. They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours. These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. ConstellationsConstellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy.

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, this Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
