“The Devil wants your Children”
Pastor M.L. Maughmer, Jr.
What would you do if I were to tell you that there is someone so perverted, so sick, so disgusting, so vindictive, so vial and so obsessed with your children that they will do anything in their power destroy their innocence, ruin their lives, rob them of the knowledge of God, and murder them both spiritually and physically. This person is not found on any post office bulletin boards, the police are not putting an A.P.B. out on him. There are no alerts saying that he has moved into your neighborhood. He is not registered with any child protective service group as a pedophile or anything like that. However; he is registered in the Bible in 1st Peter 5:8 as your adversary, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour. His attacks are so insidious and heinous so meticulously calculated that he often has already crept in unaware and captured your children right before your very eyes. He wants to keep them from the knowledge of God and God’s promises, and he will use anything within his power, every trick in his book, to do so.
He is crafty, subtle, cunning, convincing, devious, devastating, and ruthless. He is a master of deception, the father of all lies, the fallen one and he wants your children.
My prayer today is if you love your children at all are you willing to do whatever it takes to stop the attack against your child. The truth is the Devil is constantly looking for his next victim. 1st Peter 5:8 says “your adversary, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour”. So many times we think of this scripture and apply it to the adults, but let me tell you, the devil is an equal opportunity adversary, he doesn’t mind age, or gender, all he wants to do is kill steal and destroy and if it happens to be a child it gives him extra excitement because Jesus Mark 10:14 “Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God”. He understands Psalm127:3 “Lo, children [are] an heritage of the LORD: [and] the fruit of the womb [is his] reward”. He wants your children because he wants to steal your reward and rob you of the heritage God has promised unto you.
WATCH THIS:- He is subtle, cunning, and devastating. In 1962, the devil successfully got prayer thrown out of schools and he used a little loud mouth woman to accomplish his plan. Almost immediately things began to decline. Soon after prayer was removed from schools, there was a rise every year of teenage pregnancies to young school age mothers, alcohol consumption among the youth began rising, pre-martial sex had become common place, violent crimes escalated, drug use became more and more open and the list goes on.
Now in this day things are even worse, you don’t know if when you send your kids off to school that they will come home, you wonder is someone going to have been a ticking time bomb just waiting to exploded and today they walk in the school and open fire on unsuspecting children. Not long ago I heard on the news about a 6 year old kid that was arrested in his kindergarten class for carrying a knife to school. I recently had a woman come to me crying say Pastor I want you to pray for my son he has such an uncontrollable temper, he has been suspended from school because he threatened to kill some other little kid in school and he is only in the 1st grade. Marvin Gaye asked the question “What’s going on”, well I have the answer to that question right now. The answer is that the devil understands that if he gets your children at an early age, he’ll have them for years, if not for their entire lives. He knows that since kids are subjected to, and give in to, peer pressure that there’s a good chance they will take their ideas and spread them like a disease running rapid through their entire school or neighborhood.
He knows this because he has been walking to and fro in the earth seeking and watching. He knew that prayer was working. Every day in schools millions of children each day were calling on the name of the Lord and giving glory and honor to God. The devil saw the blessings it was having upon this country, and once he put a stop to it, he knew to replace it with a poisonous disease that would fester and grow into a cancerous death sentence. I told you he is meticulous and cunning and his works are devastating.
