Sons And Daughters

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children” (Hosea 4:6).

It is true every man is seen as an individual before God (Psalm 139), but it is also true that children receive a structure of circumstances engineered by their parents, whether of blessing through obedience, or bondage due to sin.

Consider Israel’s judgment: “But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee. . . . Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long. . . . The LORD shall bring a nation against thee. . . . A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor show favor to the young. . . . And he shall besiege thee. . . . And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters” (Deuteronomy 28:15–53; see also II Kings 6:24–29). When God moved the king of Babylon against Israel, the daughters were “slain in the field” (Ezekiel 26:8).

Evolutionary teaching has corrupted its recipient generations to the point that the daughters of our nation are lining up to “shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters” (Psalm 106:38). For our children’s sake, we must stand in the armor of God (Ephesians 6:13–18) and sound the battle cry of Nehemiah: “Remember the LORD, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons, and your daughters, your wives, and your houses” (Nehemiah 4:14).
