Destroying A New Generation

"And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel."
Judges 2:10

He is a master at deception isn't he?  He has been in the deceiving business for a long time and is so convincing that he even drew one third of the angels in a foolhardy rebellion against the Almighty.  Any human that thinks he/she can outwit Satan is foolish.  We only overcome his deception and lies by casting ourselves on Christ and His blood bought atonement, professing our allegiance to the Savior, dedicating ourselves to pursuing God's word, and by the constant direction of the Holy Spirit (who, by the way, never directs or teaches anything outside of the word He inspired).  One of the devil's oldest tricks is to infect the minds of children with godless philosophies and wickedness.  Once done, these young people grow to become tools in his arsenal of destruction, hate, and evil.

God also understands this as well.  He has pleaded with humanity repeatedly to teach children His word and His ways. He yearned for Israel to train their children with any and every available means. Consider the following scriptures which are a small sampling of the many dealing with the instruction of children: 

"And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up."  Deuteronomy 6:6-7

"Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.  And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." Deuteronomy 11:18-19

God did not hide the judgment of Sodom from Abraham because He knew Abraham was responsible to teach his children the ways of God.  "For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him." Genesis 18:19

New Testament Christians are also instructed to train their children as well."And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."  Ephesians 6:4

The forefathers of this nation understood this concept much more than most understand.  Any who teaches that Christianity had nothing to do with the rise of the American education system is a liar!  Let me bluntly say it again, the precepts of God were so thoroughly ingrained in the youth of early America that liberal professors who counter-claim this are purposefully lying to promote their godless and sordid agenda with the aim of currently unhinging America from the God whose blessings we have enjoyed for over two centuries. One of the earliest pieces of legislation calling for the compulsory education of all children was written in Massachusetts being known as Ye  Olde Deluder Satan Act of 1647.  Along with other early American legislation from and the statements of the founding fathers and leaders, we can see they understood the enemy that seeks to destroy a new generation.

Here are a few quotes to consider as evidence:
"Education is useless without the Bible." and "In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed....No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people." Noah Webster

“Cursed be all that learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ” ~James Madison

“I speak as a man of the world to men of the world; and I say to you, Search the Scriptures! The Bible is the book of all others, to be read at all ages, and in all conditions of human life; not to be read in small portions of one or two chapters every day and never to be intermitted, unless by some overruling necessity.”  ~John Adams

It seems that many have forgotten the ways of the Old Deluder!  A short history lesson reveals that this is a strategy he has employed over and over!

He is currently working overtime to deceive the minds of children with godless foolishness worldwide.  In Muslim countries he is seeking to fill children with hate for any who denies Islam especially if they are Jews or Christians.

Consider this video!  Don't you think the enemy understands Judges 2:10?  

In Europe and America, there are those that now believe that teaching Christianity is actually evil.  No wonder God warned us that in the last day good would be evil and evil would be good!

For the sake of time, we will go back to America.  We started with a nation that was taught to fear God and run from evil.  Today they are taught to deny the Bible, ignore the roots of Christianity in the formation of the land and to espouse any teaching that contradicts scripture.  Just this week, California's legislature has passed a bill that calls for godless indoctrination of children about homosexuality.

This issue also shows the formation of  a deepening chasm in America that is growing every day

This is an issue that is too broad and too universal to attempt to cover in one post.  Yet, its worldwide pervasiveness points to one conclusion.  The Old Deluder is again attempting to destroy a new generation universally.  This is another great sign of the closeness of Christ's return!  Surely, Jesus Christ is Soon 2 Come again!

  1. Hi John,
    I hope you are healing and your neck is feeling better, I am still keeping you in my prayers.

    I think that many christians are trying to fix this country with politics. They are focusing only on the constitution but it will never work. The constitution didn't make this country great our worship of God and our fear of God made this country great. We used to have standards and our ministers used to be respected and would stand up to evil, and now when they try to, they are labeled as troublemakers.
    There is no unity in our churches. It's every man, or church, for himself.Even now, instead of running to God, we run to politics and congressmen to heal us.
    If Obama signs off with the U.N. in Sept. our country is in extremly serious trouble.

    Its not the same America that once was. That America is lost forever. When we stopped fearing God,when we stopped defending Him,when we worried more about pleasing men rather than God,we allowed our country to be infiltrated with all manner of anti christs,and false religions, that are in direct opposition to christianity. We are so tolerant, we even allow Satanic churches to be tax exempt.
    It is my opinion that all of the effort that christians are putting into politics would be better spent on their knees. The fight is in the spiritual realm, but we insist on fighting in the natural and we are getting no where.Evil just keeps advancing in every area.
    Maybe with punishment and suffering our country will humble themselves and turn back to God. But the older generation is dying off and the children are left that could care less about God. So the country is ultimately in the hands of the younger generation, who are happy with evil, could care less about righteousness and like things just the way they are.
