The Old Cowboy Preacher: Protect Our Children
Matthew 19:13-15 “Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me; for of such is the kingdom of heaven. And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.”
Jesus loved the little children and wanted them to come to him. Jesus died for the little children just like he did for the adults, and he knew that they are trainable and innocent and will listen and believe what they are taught. Whereas adults minds are sometimes so filled with the things of the world that they do not listen to what God is trying to tell them. The disciples were well meaning, but thought the children would be a distraction, I am afraid we sometimes do that in our church services, but that is where they should be, learning about God and how he loves them. They need to be in Sunday school and children's church if you have it and if not then with their parents in church.
Today the world is trying to control and indoctrinate our children with lies and false teaching in our schools, and other government agencies, and we need to take a stand for them, because they are too young to understand what is happening to them. They murder them through abortion; they neglect and abuse them, and now they are messing with their minds about gender preference, telling them it is up to them to decide what they want to be. God decided that before they were born, and it is ungodly to change it, and there is only two genders, male and female period.
But God is very explicit in his word about what is going to happen to the people who mistreat or mislead his little children. Matthew 18:1-6, 14 “At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, and said, verily I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whosoever shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. BUT whosoever shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (14) Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish.”
To all those who are misleading or abusing our children, you better take heed, repent and change your ways or you will feel the wrath of Almighty God.
Things to ponder from the old cowboy preacher; It is better to obey now than to have to pay later.
