MOMMA KNOWS

BRBC 5-8-05 NBC 5-14-00 2 JOHN 1-11

INTRO: DR. GORDON MATTICE TELLS ABOUT A YOUNG GIRL WHO IS BEING EXAMINED FOR MEMBERSHIP BY THE DEACONS OF A CERTAIN CHURCH. ONE OF THE DEACONS PLAINLY ASK THE GIRL ADO YOU WANT TO BE LIKE CHRIST?@ THE YOUNG GIRL HESITATED FOR A MOMENT AS IF PUZZLED BY THE QUESTION. AFTER A MOMENT OF THOUGHT, SHE LIFTED HER EYES AND REPLIED, AI DON=T KNOW, I NEVER HAVE THOUGHT MUCH ABOUT IT.@ THEN A LOOK OF LOVE AND TENDERNESS CAME OVER HER FACE AND SHE ADDED ABUT I DO KNOW THAT I WANT TO BE LIKE MY MOTHER.@

WHAT AN IMPACT MOTHERS HAVE ON OUR LIVES. IT IS MUCH GREATER IN MOST CASES THAN OUR FATHERS. MOM GAVE US BIRTH, FED US, PAMPERED AND PUNISHED US. CLEAN UP, CARE FOR, MOTHERS SHED TEARS OF JOY AND SORROW FOR US. PUT UP WITH, BRAGGED ON AND DEFENDED US. I WOULD RATHER FACE 5 MEN IN A FIGHT THAN TO TAKE ON ONE MOTHER DEFENDING HER CHILD. ILL. ALASKA, GRIZZLY BEARS MOST DANGEROUS WHEN CUBS ARE AROUND.

IN THE SPIRITUAL WAR THAT RAGES WITH SATAN, CHILDREN ARE HIS MAIN TARGET. GOD HAS GIVEN CHRISTIAN MOTHERS AS OUR FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE IN THIS WAR. THE DEVILS WAR ON PEOPLE BEGINS IN THE HOME AND FAMILY. OUR ENEMY KNOWS THAT AS THE FAMILY GOES SO WILL GO THE CHURCH AND THE NATION. ILL. WHAT MAJOR PROBLEM IS AMERICA FACING THAT CANNOT BE FOUND ROOTED IN THE BREAKDOWN OF FAMILY? DRUGS, TEEN PREGNANCY, ABORTION, CORRUPTION, GREED, VIOLENCE, LACK OF RESPECT AND COURTESY, ON AND ON.

IF YOU DON=T BELIEVE THAT THE FAMILY, ESPECIALLY THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY IS UNDER ATTACK LET ME GIVE YOU SOME SIMPLE EVIDENCE. PREACHERS FAMILY, ONLY ONE! 5 DAYS A WEEK WE GET UP EARLIER WITH MORE TO DO, MORE PRESSURE, LESS TIME AND WE DO FINE. SUNDAY AM ROLLS AROUND AND THE BATTLE BEGINS. NOTHING GOES RIGHT, WON=T GET UP, NOT ENOUGH HOT WATER, NOT ENOUGH HAIR DRYERS, MIRRORS, BATHROOMS, SOMEONE IS ALWAYS GRUMPY OR SICK, BREAKFAST IS A MAJOR TASK, CAN=T DECIDE WHAT CLOTHES TO WEAR, ALWAYS RUNNING LATE, BIBLES FORGOTTEN, PHONE RINGS IN MIDST ON AND ON.

FACT IS SATAN WANTS TO DESTROY YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR KIDS, AND GOD IN HIS INFINITE WISDOM HAS GIVEN US AN EARTHLY DEFENDER . THIS WARRIORS NAME IS MOM. A CHRISTIAN MOM KNOWS THE TRUTH OF CHRIST, SHE LIVES IT IN FRONT OF HER FAMILY, SHE DEFENDS THE TRUTH WITH SUPERNATURAL POWER. MOMS ARE SPECIAL. LETS LOOK THIS AM AT 2 JOHN AND SEE JUST WHAT A CHRISTIAN MOM KNOWS
