Sunday Outline – June 4, 2023
Last Sunday, Pastor George ministered “Our Children are OUR Children.”
Pastor George began with sharing he has been praying over our nation, pushing back the devil, and sin with the authority in the Name of Jesus.
In today’s service, there are many decades represented here. For many, it is almost unfathomable to think about what we are facing with, how the devil is attacking this nation, in these last days.
2 Timothy 3:1-3; (NLT) Praying Over Our Nation
“You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others.”
Verse 1 shares there will be very difficult times ahead.
Verses 2-3 share what those difficult times look like.
This world is in crazy times.
- We are facing new cultural issues.
- It is a concentrated attack from the enemy on our nation.
- Ungodly leaders are leading in the wrong direction. This is why our mission at EMIC is to take a group of people and disciple them… This provides a clear path for people to see God’s plan unfold, rather than seeing only the enemy’s plan.
- Despite this, the United States is STILL in covenant with Almighty God – and requires action on our part.
Pastor George segued to the three covenants which are in place for our nation.
Our 1607 Covenants with God
- In 1607, the expedition led by Pastor Robert Hunt arrived in Virginia Beach.
- The explorers dedicated this country to the Glory of God.
- They raised a wooden cross in the sand, and prayed…
“We do hereby dedicate this Land, and ourselves, to reach the People within these shores with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to raise up Godly generations after us. And, with these generations, take the Kingdom of God to all the earth.
May this covenant of dedication remain to all generations, as long as this earth remains. And, may this land, along with England, be evangelist to the world. May all who see this cross, remember what we have done here. And, may those who come here to inhabit join us in this covenant and in this most noble work that the Holy Scriptures may be fulfilled.”
The 1620 Mayflower Compact
The purpose of their journey was for, “the Glory of God and the Advancement of the Christian Faith.”
“In the Name of God, Amen. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread sovereign lord King James, by the grace of God, of Great Britain, France and Ireland, King, and Defender of the Faith. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and the honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia. Do by these present, solemnly, and mutually in the presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil body politick.”
George Washington’s Inaugural Prayer – April 30, 1789
He laid one hand on the Bible, and the other upward toward heaven.
“Almighty God, We make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection. That Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States at large. And finally, that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of the Divine Author of our blessed religion. And, without a humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
He, along with the newly elected officials walked arm and arm down the streets of New York to St. Paul’s Chapel. In the Chapel, they bowed together and dedicated America to God.
Our nation is still in Covenant with God.
Contrarywise, there are some endeavoring to destroy our nation. The devil, through our government, is attacking our children and the role of parents in their lives. You can’t kick against the will of God; and it IS the will of God for America to stand strong!
The Devil’s Historic Playbook
“The education of all children, from the moment that they can get along without a mother’s care, shall be in state institutions.”
— Karl Marx
“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”
— Vladimir Lenin
“Give me just one generation of youth, and I will transform the whole world.”
— Vladimir Lenin
“We must create out of the younger generation, a generation of Communists. We must turn children, who can be shaped like wax, into real, good Communists. We must remove the children from the crude influence of their families. We must take them over and, to speak frankly, nationalize them. From the first days of their lives, they will be under the healthy influence of Communist children’s nurseries and schools. There, they will grow up to be real Communists.”
—Communist Party Education Workers Congress
“He alone who owns the youth, gains the future.”
— Adolf Hitler
“The devil is, once again, trying to turn a whole generation away from Me. He is trying to turn them to darkness. And, he is using a lot of people to try and accomplish this. Don’t let him get away with it.”
—Word from the Lord to Pastor George Saturday, June 3, 2023
Attempts to legitimize the destruction of the family continues to grow rapidly. This time, in a featured opinion piece in the New York magazine, entitled, “Children Are Not Property” by Sarah Jones.
Jones wrote that parents threaten the well-being of children. And, that somehow a bunch of strangers unrelated to the children are a better alternative to raise and influence the most vulnerable among us.
Jones writes, “Like any piece of property, a child has value to conservative activists. They are key to a future the conservatives want to win. Parental rights are merely one path to the total capture of state power. So, it is no surprise that children have long been a fixation to the right wing. Right-wing Christians have embraced the parental rights movement in a bid to mold their children how they choose much like a domesticated animal.”
Jones condemns the idea that parents have a social and unique bond with their children. And, that parents have some sort of right to instill their values on their children. The argument is not that little kids should be thrown unattended into the woods to fend for themselves. She and the left argue that adult influence should be transferred from parents to uninterested stated agents.
Mattel’s Gender-Neutral & Transgender dolls
From, “Target Partners with Organization Pushing for Kid’s Genders to be Secretly Changed in Schools Without Parental Consent.”
Target Corporation has partnered with a K-12 education group on getting districts to adopt policies to attempt to keep parents in the dark on their child’s in-school gender transition. They provide sexually explicit books to public schools for free.
A Target representative said;
“GLSEN leads the movement in creating affirming and anti-racist spaces for LGBTQIA+ students. We are proud of 10+ years of collaboration with GLSEN and continue to support their mission.”
Pastor George received ONE word from the Lord this past Saturday, and it is “Unacceptable.” You need to carefully choose where you go shopping, where you buy a car, and the restaurants you support. As believers, we draw the line of what is acceptable and what is unacceptable in this nation. It begins with us supporting and honoring the Word of God, and putting action to our belief in what we support in this Nation.
The Role of Parenting in the Bible
Proverbs 1:8; (NKVJ)
“My son, hear the instruction of your father, And do not forsake the law of your mother.”
Ephesians 6:1-4; (NKJV)
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but (YOU) bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.
Proverbs 22:6; (NLT)
(PARENTS) Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.
Deuteronomy 6:6-9; (NKJV)
And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You (Parents) shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
Pastor George shared that bringing a "drag queen" in to entertain your children is anti-God, and anti-Bible. This is kicking against the will of God, and those who also opposite Israel are also poking at God’s heart for His people.
According to God’s Word, it is the parent’s responsibility to raise their children — NOT the State, NOT the government, and certainly NOT some stranger.
