Summary: It is time we take a stand for the family.
Pastor Jamie Wright * MFC * September 18, 2005
Satan will do everything in his power to tear down the walls of spiritual protection around those you love. As a father of 3 I am concerned for what the future holds for my children and yours. We must stand up and fight!
What kind of nation will be left for future generations? Will we settle for a place where the slaughter of millions of unborn children is accepted or a country that denies born again believer’s the right to public display of faith? That isn’t good enough for the Wright Family!
Today, I step into the ring. I will no longer sit in the shadows waiting for our children and families to be destroyed. I am rolling up my sleeves, putting on my gloves and I am going to begin the FIGHT FOR MY FAMILY!
Nehemiah 4:14 NLT Then as I looked over the situation, I called together the leaders and all the people and said to them, “Don’t be afraid of the enemy! Remember the Lord, who is great and glorious, and go fight for your friends, your families (sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, even your in-laws) and your homes!
Have you looked over the situation?
Half of all marriages end in divorce, even among Born again believers
Drug use in middle school students is on the rise
The average age of sexual activity is 11-12
According to Dr. Dobson’s Focus on the Family, children see violence, rape, adultery, burglary, drug use, and vulgar language on prime TV on a regular basis.
Teen pregnancy is still an epidemic. Teen suicide still happens (avg. age 15)
Don’t be afraid of the enemy!
He is not all powerful
He will not and does not win in the end
He must flee when you rebuke him
He is under our feet.
Remember the Lord!
He is great
He is glorious
He is all powerful
He is all knowing
Fight for your families and your homes!
1Timothy 6:12 NLT Fight the good fight for what we believe in…
If you won’t stand and fight for what you believe in you will fall for anything!
Ephesians 6:12 NLT we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms.
Is anybody ready to stand and fight for their family?
HOW DO WE FIGHT FOR OUR FAMILY?
1. We must become GUARDIANS for our families!
A guardian is one who protects, one who guards over and against.
Guard your children, your spouse, your relatives and loved ones. Be a shield!
BEER Story- My dad and now I am a dad. Matthew
1 Timothy 5:8 Mes Any one who neglects to care for family members, he has denied the Christian faith and is worse than an unbeliever. (KJV)
What do I guard them against-?
Millions of filthy porn sites on the internet
The ungodly fashion of the secular world. Boys should look like boys and little girls should look like, act like talk like and dress like little girls.
The counterfeit for true worship the devil calls MUSIC
The hundreds maybe even thousands of predators, and unregistered sex offenders of our land
