Satan's War against the Children

By Angela Wittman

Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.
(Matthew 2: 16-18, KJV)

Dear Friends,

One of the most heartwarming sights is that of a child. Their vulnerability and dependence upon others for sustenance and protection should move us all to compassion. Scripture tells us that “children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.” (Psalm 127:3) Yes, they are precious in God’s sight; to be loved and cherished by all.

But sadly, many people have come to believe Satan’s lies that children are a nuisance and should be discarded as trash. The Serpent whispers: “It’s your body, your choice…It’s not murder.” And then gullible, sin laden women make an appointment with a local baby-butcher to destroy their very own flesh and blood. And the demons from hell laugh with glee!

But, dear friends, Satan does not stop at the abortion clinic. He wants to intrude into your home. He wants to send in his henchmen to snoop and see if you are raising your child to be politically correct, and to see if you are following his program for indoctrination of worldly values. After all, if you are home-schooling your child and teaching him with biblical values, this may just thwart Satan’s plan to rule the world. After all, little Jimmy may just grow up to be a man after God’s own heart, and Satan cannot have that! Or Suzie may grow up to be a godly woman who respects her husband and teaches her children to obey the Ten Commandments and thus prevents Satan from gaining a foothold in their lives. After all, Satan wants your child to be a follower of his and not of God. He wants your child to be taught secular humanism, that man is his own god, and that the “state” is superior to the family and even to God Almighty!

Satan will have children torn from their mother’s arms and placed in state care. He will lie and say that they are not capable of raising their children. He will even go so far as to make the economy poor so both parents will have to work in order to survive, and he will then say the parents are neglecting their children. He will appear as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14) to a struggling family to offer them financial aid and services; but beware of the strings attached as he will see to it they become a noose around your neck. Then when he has the child or children removed from your home, he will make it almost impossible for you to fight the “system.” And while little Jimmy and Suzie cry for their mama and daddy in the state sanctioned children’s home, Satan and his demons from hell dance with glee! But still he is not satisfied. You see he has an unquenchable thirst for blood. So, he must do all that is within his power to keep children away from their family’s protection and put them into a dangerous environment. He knows just who to recruit to do his dastardly deeds and how to incite them with rage to beat and batter children who have fallen through the cracks of the child protection services.

Almost every day, in every city, there are reports of children missing, abused or murdered while in foster care. And as their little hearts and bodies are broken, Satan smiles and continues on to the next victim.

But here is the hope for you and your family:

Holy Scripture tells us:

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6: 12)

And it then tells us how to win this battle:

“Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;” (Ephesians 6: 13 -18)

So, dear friends, if you have not already, please flee to the safety of the One who has conquered Satan for all time and eternity: Jesus Christ, the Living God who reigns over all nations. And may ”…Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.” (Revelation 1:4-8)

And may the good LORD give you the perseverance, strength, wisdom and resources to fight this battle in His Name for His Glory! Amen.

A Judge and the Ten Commandments

We now face a new moral crisis, a new crisis of conscience, for voters in the United States, specifically, this time voters in the state of Alabama. That's because on December 12 the voters of that state will elect a new United States Senator in a special election made necessary in order to fill the seat that had been vacated by the current Attorney General of the United States Jeff Sessions. - Dr. Albert Mohler - President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary ( Daily Briefing 11.13.17)

Dear Friends,
There has been much discussion on the Roy Moore US Senate race and recent allegations of sexual impropriety and child sexual abuse made by women who claim to have been teenagers when these events took place. Those of you who follow my blogs know that I once was a supporter of Judge Moore and theonomy in general. 
However, I had a change of heart regarding theonomy several years ago (2013), and now I am no longer a supporter of Judge Moore.  I believe there are credible reports th…

Aiming for Godly Growth in 2018

Dear Friends,

There is much busyness in the life of today's women, but if you are a Christian, you will have a desire to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord. Here are some recently written articles by other authors I think you'll find valuable. I pray you'll make time to read and reflect upon the godly advice and wisdom shared in each one.

The first article is On Being a Christian Woman in the Year of Our Lord, 2018written by Abigail Dodds and posted at her blog Hope and Stay.

Abigail writes about the hunger of Christian women for sound teaching in today's churches, which is right and good, but also warns of some pitfalls and how to avoid them.

Here are some valuable excerpts from her article:
Here’s my summary: Biblically-conservative Christian women are eager to have visible, biblically-conservative leadership by women in their churches and eager to learn from gifted, female Bible teachers whether locally or nationally. Secondly, women with the gift of teach…

What on earth was Roy Moore thinking?

Dear Friends,

Yesterday I saw this tweet repeating a comment reported by the LA Times that Roy Moore made at a campaign rally last September when one of his supporters asked him when he thought the last time America was "great:"
"I think it was great at the time when families were united—even though we had slavery—they cared for one another…Our families were strong, our country had a direction." (Taken from Roy Moore: Last Time America was 'Great" was During 'Slavery'; Newsweek, 12.7.2017) I realize this is being presented out of context and sensationalized, but really, folks, what on earth was Roy Moore thinking when he said it?  Regardless of how foolish making such a comment is during a public campaign event for a national office, it's just plain wrong.

My father's family is from the south - we can trace our ancestry back to the War for Independence with our family patriarch Capt. John Somers possibly serving under George Washington at …
