The Enemy's Attack on Family - Part 2

There has been a misrepresentation of the Family both in the Spirit and in the Natural. It is my firm belief that those who do not fully understand the mystery of Family in the Spirit (Christianity) will continue to present, proclaim and believe the perverted view of family in the natural. The devil has distorted both. Through religion, satan has preached perversion of the Mystery that is the Church.

In the days ahead, there will be more of a merging of the Spirit of perversion and the Spirit of religion in order to make aberrant behavior acceptable. Christianity is not religion; it is the true family, ordained by God with Jesus Christ as the Head. Any family unit that has not been established with Jesus as the pattern for headship is not the Father's plan. Through rebellion and deception, many families have been fractured. The standard is this: Man, Woman and children. One passage where the model for this is explained is in Ephesians 5:22-6:4:


"Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.  For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 
Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. 
Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 
That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 
That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. 
So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. 
For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: 
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. 
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. 
Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 
That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth. 
And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." - Eph. 5:22-6:4 KJV

Within this pattern, roles are clearly defined. In order for blessings to flow from the Head (Jesus) on down, this is the standard that needs to be met. Through divorce, absentee fathers, etc., the enemy has sought to sabotage this and bring undue hardship. Not that blessings aren't possible within the structure of single-parent homes; God's Grace and Mercy is still available. The fact is, there is so much struggle involved in so many cases because of  parents abandoning children for largely selfish reasons.

Homosexual marriage and raising families in a two-male parent/two female parent setting, however, is the main avenue through which satan deceives, making "acceptable" what God has already judged as sin.

There's a reason why opposites attract; simply because they are opposites. Each has something that the other does not, which fills the void and makes it whole. Case in point: natural attraction. A man is attracted to a woman and a woman to a man. There would be no need for a male and female of any species if one gender was enough. In order for two of the same to be "compatible", one of the two would have to take on an attribute that is foreign to their nature, e.g., a "feminine" male or a "masculine" female. The mere fact that this takes place proves that God knew what he was doing when He created male and female. Man cannot "re-invent" natural order, just as much as he should never legislate sin - of any kind - into the law of the land; it is a work of darkness.

Consider this: In the book of Genesis, God took woman out of man (two out of one) and then put them back together through marriage (two into one).


Through the forbearance and Mercy of God, manifested Judgment has not yet come. However, Judgment delayed is not Judgment denied. The reason is that God is giving us time to repent for participating in and condoning such acts of open rebellion against His Word.

Think about this very carefully: Without the Word of God, none of us would exist (John 1:3;10). How can we engage in such rebellion and disobedience to the very Word to which we owe our very existence, and  which we have to answer to on the day of Judgment?


"For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad." - 2 Cor. 5:10 KJV



Folks, the times are getting - and will continue to become - worse and worse. If we have the full understanding of the Mystery of the Church and God's Divine Order, we will never be deceived. We need to make the Holy Spirit our very best friend so we will be able to maintain intimate fellowship with Jesus our Bridegroom. We have taken on His Name and His Nature. Do not commit spiritual fornication with the world; there will be consequences. As His voice in the earth, we need to continue to preach deliverance to the captives, and to declare that what is and has been, is not what shall be!

"I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 
Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."
- 2 Tim. 4:1-4 KJV



God Bless, and Be Encouraged!

  1. Well spoken, and absolutely on point my brother. The family structure has been under attack since the beginning, and in these last moments satan's agenda has picked up momentum, especially under this current administration. Keep sounding the alarm! It's needful these last and evil days.

  2. Good morning Nigel. Just read your post. It saddens me that the majority of the Body of Christ does not believe that the Bible is really God's statement of belief. Yes, our society will change -- sadly in a direction opposite of what God desires. But we, His children, should not follow the leading of society. We should follow the leading of our new nature, but we don't. Thank you for insightful blogs (read the first post earlier this morning. Much love.

    1. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment, Barry. I sure do appreciate it. In light of what has transpired this morning with the Supreme Court ruling on DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) this is just the tip of the iceberg. Blessings.
