We are in such a falling away, and rebellious age of iniquity in this world now. I know so many who are from the 20’s to the 50’s and so disrespectful of their parents. There is so much hates now, towards parents, and I know that whether you are not saved, or your a Christian, that it grieves the heart of God. The following here are only some scriptures I found. I have heard this subject preached for many, many years. For even if you had the WORST upbringing ever…In a parents old age, you are to be “forgiving”, “respectful”, and you are in GOD’S EYES…TO HONOR YOUR MOTHER AND YOUR FATHER.
Proverbs 15: 20 “A wise son (daughter) makes a glad father; but 25 The Lord will establish the border of the widow.
27 He that is greedy of gain troubles his own house; but he who hates gifts shall live.
16:5 Every one who is proud, the heart is an abomination to the Lord; though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. (pride is the foundation of all sin..)
18 Pride goes before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
20:20 Whoso curses his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.
21 An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning, but the end; therefore shall not be blessed.”
Proverbs 23:6 “Eat not the bread of him who has an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats. For he thinks in his heart, so is he, eat and drink says he to you; but his HEART is NOT with you.
8 The morsel which you have eaten shall you vomit up, and lose your sweet words.
Isaiah 5:21 “Woe unto them who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! (WOE by the Lord is crucial…it means self-conceit the opposite of humility.)
30:1 Woe, to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, who take counsel, but not of My Spirit, that they may add sin to sin.
(WARNING TO WOMEN)
Rise up, you women who are at ease, hear my voice, you careless daughters; give ear unto my speech. (listen to what the prophets say.)
Sin demands deeper emersion. Only Christ is our deliverer. He is the Lion of Judah. When you fail to acknowledge and honor your parents, you are doing the work of Satan. For too, the widow asks falsely, “God when are YOU going to do something about my children’s rudeness and disrespect?” But, God tells us differently, and we are to “correct” even a grown child. For we have bowed to the enemy long enough. God may love the unsaved child who is now full grown, but He won’t excuse him/her for the slights and pain he causes their mother/father. For THAT is the work of the power of darkness…And as for me? I rebuke the devil in every facet of my body, home, and life, in Jesus name by the blood at the Cross. For we do not have victory by giving into evil.
So children out there who are grown…listen to this old Pentacostal woman, You cannot say this in the Lord’s prayer , “Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, ” if you harbor a grudge or hates against your parents or someone else. You cannot say “Thine is the glory, ” if you are seeking glory for yourself!
As a Pentacostal woman…YOU NEED DELIVERANCE!
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgement thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” Isaiah 54:17
DELIVERANCE IS ALWAYS FROM THE LORD ALMIGHTY. When our children for instance, redicule our faith, and things are rough, and your bones ache….when you don’t know where to turn, you go to the ONLY ONE who is ALWAYS there…Jesus! King David did this over and over all through Psalms.
PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT: I received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit’s gifts of tongues in the late 80’s. How I love to enter in with other’s in praying in the Spirit and the prophesies that come from Christ, after the Spirit gives us utterance. Acts 2:4 Also in Acts 10:45-46. When Saul was on that road to Tarsus, he was knocked down on the road by a tremendous power of the Lord and the Holy Spirit. A slave trader too…who beat his slaves…he then was made anew, in Christ. A new creature. Then becoming the greatest Apostle of Christ we have, Paul.
Prayer in tongues is different and is available to all….We are told in Jude 20:21 “Beloved, building up yourselves on your most Holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, keep yourselves in the love of God.” Romans 8:26 says, “For we know not what we should pray for as we ought, but the SPIRIT itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. ” If you are not Baptized in the HOlY SPIRIT, you need to find a spirit filled church. Your life will not be fulfilled until you know the intimate person of the Holy Ghost. Praying in tongues is a coded message between God (& his angels) and man. And Satan cannot break that code or interpret. A mystery that God has left with us on earth.
This Holy Ghost power can help you deal with family or children that attack you in one way of another. For you then cast away YOUR intellect in the natural, and trust GOD’s intellect and His HOLY GHOST in the SUPERNATURAL. I would rather at my age, trust HIM than the world and man….
Therefore, when we STAND up, unled by the HOLY SPIRIT, and launch into a glowing account of how much God loves us, and demonstrates it by showering us with gifts and blessings, it is WRONG…. We should only wait until the HOLY Spirit leads us forward, instead of letting vain words of judgements come out of our mouths that offend. You are going on EMOTION, NOT SPIRIT LED BIBLICAL LOVE. And in all things, we must praise God, before approaching HIS throne. I pray too, that youth today, have a better knowledge of all that their parents have sacrificed for them. For YOU are MANDATED BY GOD TO FORGIVE AND LOVE THEM…Thank you Jesus…May the spirit of God, and the Holy Ghost come upon you in an abundance of love.
