HE MADE THIS WORLD FOR OUR BENEFIT WHICH ONE DAY WE SHALL FULLY UNDERSTAND AND PRAISE GOD THROUGHOUT ETERNITY.
I WILL PUT MY LAW IN THEIR INWARD PARTS AND WRITE IT IN THEIR HEARTS (SPIRITUAL DNA) . I WILL BE THEIR GOD AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.
I WILL BE A FATHER TO YOU AND YOU SHALL BE MY SONS AND DAUGHTERS SAYS THE LORD ALMIGHTY.
2 Cor: 6:18
A MAN AND WOMAN SHALL
BECOME AS ONE.
DO NOT LET THE PRINCE OF THIS WORLD OR OTHERS TURN US ONE AGAINST ANOTHER.
GODS PATTERN FOR FAMILIES IS THE FATHER (ORDAINED BY GOD) AS SPIRITUAL LEADER WITH HIS WIFE (ORDAINED BY GOD) EQUAL AS HIS CONFIDANT, FIRST COUNSELOR, HELP MATE, AND MOTHER OF THEIR CHILDREN.
ALL THE FATHERS GONE?
I read something, that Paul wrote concerning Jesus Christ.
"In Christ are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." Colossians 2:3
Why grub around any longer in the rubbish bins of human
wisdom when all the treasures are hidden in Jesus Christ?
THE TEST OF THE MORALITY OF A SOCIETY
IS WHAT IT DOES FOR IT'S CHILDREN.
God established marriage between a man and women designating specific responsibilities and divine callings for Husbands, Wives, and Children.
Man's churches have taken upon themselves God ordained callings and responsibilities that were specifically given to Fathers and Mothers.
Will mans Denominational Churches and so called spiritual organizations follow God's Pattern for Christian Families? Or will they continue to ignore God's way?
Gods Church is Jesus Christ and Born Again Believers having the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, Our True Teacher, Our True Guide, Our True Comforter, along with God's Written Word and the testimony of Creation. Born Again Believers are the living breathing Church Of God. They are adopted Sons and Daughters of God.
THE NEED FOR RETURNING
TO GOD'S PATTERN FOR THE FAMILY
Spiritual Warfare has been openly declared against traditional families (especially against men and boys), our relationship with God, our individuality, and our sanctity as Human Beings.
Traditional families are under attack, openly vilified, declared to be outdated, locked upon as relic of the past, no longer needed, and viewed as a hindrance to modern society.
More Christian Denominational Churches and Spiritual Leaders now accept and teach false doctrines, are neither hot or cold, promote all religions worship the same god, preach a feel good prosperity gospel, accommodate deviant sexual behavior, promote a social activist gospel, teach half truths, perform false healing, exploit followers for financial gain, and vilify Believers who hold fast to fundamental Christian beliefs.
Husbands and Wives discard their families leaving children to suffer the consequences "into the third and fourth generations." Make no mistake there has been a coordinated, well funded, and successful effort to destroy The Family Unit. The Traditional Family has been purposely undermined and degraded by those having their own agendas. One now wonders if God's definition of family can be accepted and restored even by the "Church"?
WHO WILL TEACH GOD'S TRUE PATTERN FOR CHRISTIAN FAMILIES?
Those who teach that Fathers or Mothers are not needed or the traditional family (one biological man and one biological women) are outdated, are tragically uninformed, deluded, lack understanding, have no common sense, or are deceived by the Prince of this world and his followers.
Dear Reader: Unless God's Pattern for Families is recognized, taught, and followed, Christian Families will continue to fail.
God established marriage between one Man and Women each having divine callings and responsibilities as Husbands, Wives, and Children. Husbands are to be the spiritual leader in the home living a Christ centered life, thereby teaching and reflecting Jesus Christ into the family. Wives (co-equal) are to live a Christ centered life as her husbands helpmate, first councilor, confidant, and Mother reflecting Jesus Christ into the family.
Fathers (following Christ example) are to provide for the needs of the family spiritually and physically, teach from scriptures, pray with family members, providing leadership, structure, and with his Wife apply positive discipline to children when needed.
Father with his wife by his side gives blessings with the "laying on of hands" in times of illness, special needs, birthdays, and trials. Fathers baptize family members and others that he (or his family) bring into the Body of Christ." All of which is done in Christ name with humility and grace thereby uniting families, extended families, neighbors, communities, cities, nations, the world.
Dear Reader consider this carefully:
Others seeing Christ and the Holy Spirit living in the lives of Believers are greatly influenced and with the testimony of the Holy Spirit become members of God's Church. These new Born Again Believers follow Gods way duplicating what they have seen and experienced (lived into them) then joyfully share the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Believers sharing the Good News person to person, house to house, community to community, city to city and beyond. Proclaiming, teaching and mentoring others who accepted Christ as their Redeemer. They meet in homes, available spaces, and open air meeting in the country side. From time to time Believers meet and fellowship together with others from other towns, and cities.
This then is the pattern which God used in spreading the Gospel. There were so many coming to Gods Church it was described as "turning the world up-side down". This is not an opinion it is a fact.
CONSIDER THIS CAREFULLY
It's all about family from beginning to end.
First : In the book of Genesis, where we see Gods pattern for families one man and one woman who are united as one.
Second: When a person accepts Jesus Christ and is Born Again they are adopted into the Body Of Christ as Sons and Daughters of God.
Third: In the book of Revelation it is recorded those who accepted Jesus Christ are fully adopted by our Heavenly Father into the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters and will dwell with Him throughout eternity.
Jesus Christ and Families the foundational "Pattern" of God's Church.
It's all about family - it always was.
IF A CHURCH OR SPIRITUAL ORGANIZATION DOES NOT TEACH GOD'S PATTERN FOR FAMILIES IT IS YOUR DIVINE CALLING AND RESPONSIBILITY AS HUSBAND AND WIFE TO DO IT YOURSELVES. YOU DO NOT NEED APPROVAL FROM ANY CHURCH OR RELIGIOUS LEADER. FATHERS AND MOTHERS YOU ARE CALLED BY GOD. Amen
TURNING THE HEARTS OF THE FATHERS TO THE CHILDREN
In the Old Testament just prior to Christ coming to take upon himself the sins of the world the following warning was given to the backslid-den people and leaders of Israel: “And he (Christ) shall turn the heart of the father to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” Malachi 4:6 KJV
Now Dear Reader considering the times in which we live Malachi words may very well apply to us given the millions upon millions of abortions, the trafficking of children, the millions of broken homes and deaths of innocent children throughout the world. Would it not be reasonable to seriously consider Christ warning (which was given prior to His first coming) as we anticipate "His second coming?"
GOD'S PRIORITIES FOR FAMILIES AND ASSEMBLY OF BELIEVERS
Those coming from a loving traditional home cannot understand the emptiness of a home without a father or mother. There is no way of truly communicating the impact upon children. It would be like trying to explain to natives living in deepest part of a jungle that men have walked on the moon, sail in ships beneath the sea, can re-write DNA altering God's pattern for life, CERN's Large Hadron Collider now exploring other de-mentions, nuclear bombs, biological weapons and more all capable of destroy millions of people.
Being a good father can only be learned and truly understood by having a father who “lived it into you” so you as a father in turn “live it into the next generation.” Oh, you can read about it or see it in others but it requires experiencing a good family life to truly comprehend all the intricacies, emotions, quarreling, inter-relationships, lies, sacrifices, competition, disagreements, hurts, healing, name-calling, love, forgiveness, and more.
All of which is to be shepherded by Godly parents.
Oh, you didn’t know that? Why not?
Family life is not for the inexperienced, week, or simple minded. Experiencing a good family life where “growing pains” are properly contained, dealt with, are part of the maturing process critical to raising children. Without a good family life (even with its shortcomings) a person from a fatherless home or motherless home will experience years of immaturity with inherited negative effects of growing up with only one parent. The traditional family unit of one man and one women is now looked up as outdated. Marriage is now being re-defined to accept group marriages, same sex marriages, adults marrying children, all of which is being taught as equally valid.
When I consider all those who have suffered because of broken homes and violent upbringing it brings great sadness and anger. I am astounded to see or read where supposedly educated people (including those who identify as Christians) openly define the modern family as any multiple of persons regardless of their sex (male with male or female with female) and other perverted carnal predispositions who are now allowed by law to adopt babies and young children.
If you disagree? You will be severely criticized, labeled intolerant, and by law ordered to attend mandatory programs to be re-educate. You may even loose you children.
Given the epidemic of broken families in today's world this picture seems unreal.
PARENTHOOD - FATHERS AND MOTHERS
THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE SPIRITUAL, MENTAL,
EMOTIONAL, AND PHYSICAL UPBRINGING OF ANOTHER
SOUL IS SIMULTANEOUSLY AWESOME, FRIGHTENING,
> WHO IS COMMITTED FOR SUCH A RESPONSIBILITY?
> WHO IS PREPARED AND EQUIPPED FOR SUCH A TASK?
> WHO WILL TEACH THE NEXT GENERATION?
Something has been lost relating to how men bond to wives and children thereby establishing a loving Christ centered home, and how boys become men, and men become Fathers.
The family has been under attack for so long one wonders if we have lost the ability to recognize and define it. That said it is still possible to establish the essential spiritual elements of family life. The question is:
Do we have the discernment and commitment to
re-establish God's Pattern for Christian Families?
Will man's Churches?
If not, Godless forces will continue their devastation of Families.
Are we ready to do what needs to be done to save families?
HOW DO BOYS BECOME GOOD MEN ? (After God's own heart.)
HOW DO MEN BECOME GOOD HUSBANDS ?
HOW DO MEN BECOME GOOD FATHERS ?
We hear today of women being ordained as Priest, Ministers, Bishops or starting Churches having their own priesthoods. All of which has caused great division and turned Believers one against another.
Scriptures give examples of women anointed and chosen by God to serve in various capacities and callings but not ordained as spiritual leaders over Believers (Male or Female). That said if a situation arises where a women who is a Born Again Believer has no husband (or theirs no male Born Again Believer available,) then a woman may serve, share, pray with, and teach the good news of salvation until a male Born Again Believer is available.
Like you I wondered why God delegated men the responsibilities of being the Spiritual Leader in the home. Truly God does not do things haphazardly? There must be reasons for God establishing boundaries and defining responsibilities? What could they be?
Women have one of the greatest gifts granted from God. They are called to participate with Him in delivering a new soul (spirit, mind, body) into this world.
The birthing process lasting nine months with all its emotional highs and lows, trials, and physical trauma of giving birth establishes a lifetime physical, emotional, and spiritual bond between mother and child that a man does not experience nor fully understand. He can only remain near offering what comfort and support that he can.
NOW CONSIDER CAREFULLY
Here we may begin to understand why in Gods eternal plan men are ordained and accountable to be the Spiritual Leader of the Family and serve as a "spiritual leaders“ for the body of Christ. The Mother is "ordained by God" to bear, give birth, and sustain children participating with God in His eternal plan of bringing souls into the world. She bonds physically and Spiritually with her child. From the time of conception approximately 9 months until the child reaches the age of accountability approximately 8 years depending on the child's abilities.
Father is there along side loving and providing for them but has not experienced bonding to a child like the Mother has. How then can "Father” bond to their children with the same degree of understanding and commitment as the mother?
Upon reaching the age of accountability (about 8 years old) the Father draws closer to the children as their Spiritual Leader, teacher, guide, disciplinarian, and comforter with the support and participation of their Mother.
Then as the years pass, having been spiritually shepherded by both Father and Mother children will grow physically and spiritually truly prepared to make "their decision", to accept the Savior and join the body of Believes. This then is how God provides a way for a man to experience the bonding process. (Yes children may accept Christ at an early age then when older, having grater understanding of Gods Plan Of Salvation, re-new their decision accepting Christ.)
GOD'S WAY FOR A MAN TO PARTICIPATE IN
BRINGING SOULS INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD
Men are called to be Ministers to their Families (and the world) seeking and courting others to come to Christ. He prays, teaches, guides, encourages, nurturing others into the Body Of Christ. This Dear Reader is Gods plan for men to participate in “the spiritual birthing” of their own children, extended family members, and non-believers who are transformed (Born Again) in spirit, mind, and body into the kingdom of God. In this way men experience the spiritual birthing process of there children, other family members, and non-believers whom they shepherd into the Body Of Believers.
Note: The Apostle Paul led Timothy to saving faith in Christ. In doing this Paul became a "spiritual father" to Timothy. Paul was responsible for him, taught him and viewed him as his son in Jesus Christ. (This is the same relationship a Believer experiences when shepherding others (especially family members) who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. Now we may understand how a man becomes a father after Gods own heart.
Not bound by fear which is the beginning of wisdom but through understanding and the love of Christ. Which is written in scriptures surpasses all understand and words cannot express or explain it. "Few are those who have experience such love however, it awaits all who seek it."
Mother remains near offering support, advice, and comfort. Her husband has truly become the earthly Father we all desire. A blessing to his Wife, his Children, and others. It is here men mature socially and are an asset to his family, those he meets, society, and the world. But it has been lost. Why has men's churches not followed Gods Pattern for the Families of Believers? Think about that?
In Gods wisdom men are called as the spiritual leader of the family responsible to love, teach, and live the Gospel of Jesus Christ together as a family. When it’s done Gods way the bond between Father, Wife, and Children will be equipped to stand the test of time. Wives, Sons, and Daughters will respect and honor their Father and the wisdom they inherit as they are loved, taught, and witness to over the years. All because of their fathers sincere commitment to Jesus Christ. They will acknowledging him before God and men. Thus for-filling the words of Malachi 4:6 "And he (Christ) shall turn the heart of the father to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers".
Dear Reader I invite you to seriously study this these matters until you are fully persuaded of the great need to return to Gods Pattern His Church and Families.
What we now accept as Christianity "church" is different from what first century Believers understood, taught, and practiced.
The question is: Will man's Denominational Church, Spiritual Organizations and Believers follow God's Pattern for Christian Families or continue to ignore God's way?
Please pardon my shortcomings in addressing such a important subject. Prayerfully consider what has been written and search the Scriptures so that you may be found Knowing For Yourself.
Mans denominational churches have appropriated to themselves Divine callings and Responsibilities that are ordained by God for Believers (Priesthood of the Believers). Should we not "go directly to God" through His Son, our Savior and High Priest, rather than men? (https://knowingforyourself.com/message-of-the-vail.) We need to return to the pattern of Gods Family and Gods Pattern For His Church. Not man's ways, man's churches and their assumed priesthoods whereby they exercise spiritual domination over others.
Much more can be written but I leave it up to you Gentle Reader to consider the many blessings and benefits when God's Pattern for Christian Families is lived by Born Again Believes.
NOTES TO WIVES/MOTHERS:
Our Creator has endowed Mothers with natural instincts in the ways to care for their children. Fathers (who would do what has been written here) need your understanding and support. Secular society has declared war against the family particularly boys, men, and Fathers. Powerful forces have deliberately conspired to destroy the traditional family. Because of this boys, men, and Fathers have been "disunited" from their own families.
When a man becomes a Father he will make mistakes along the way. He will lovingly care for and discipline the children "especially the boys" differently than Mother which is how God intended it. Mother be ready to step back, observe,and support him. If needed in private provide advise in humility, from scripture, and then step back. This may be difficult because of the teachings over the past decades of social activist movements formed to turn men and women against one another.
Know this: Your children will turn out for the best as long as "you both" overcome your shortcomings and walk in the light of Christ. In this fallen world do not expect perfection. It will not happen for Him, You, or the Children.
And finally trust only God.....He will do what is right. "God's ways are above mans ways" and He has declared - "I will forgive whom I will forgive." (Look it up in the Scriptures) Oh...but maybe you knew that? If not, Why not?
Much more can be written but I leave it up to you Gentle Reader to consider the many blessings and benefits of God's Pattern for Christian Families. Amen
MAY OUR CREATOR INSPIRES AND BLESS YOU.
BEST TO ALL AND YOUR LOVED ONES, DANIEL
It takes love, understanding, wisdom, and time, to raise a child and nurture a Family.
