The voice of God is issuing an urgent call to those who have ears to hear, to build an ark for the salvation of their families. Because of His great love and immeasurable mercy, the Lord is stirring the hearts of men and women to lay down their self-assigned ambitions, petty differences, and faithless whimpering and declare the truth of God’s Word. He is calling us to put on the full armor of God and position ourselves between the enemy and our families; to be defenders of that for which Christ bled and died for us to have, and only through which triumphantly, He will be glorified.
The Heavenly Father through His Son Jesus has made a Way where before there was no way. We Have No Excuse! God has given us authority through the name of Jesus and power through His Holy Spirit to cast out demons, heal the sick, set captives free, and declare the year of the Lord’s favor for our families.
It is sadly true and painfully obvious, that as a whole, we parents today are known for our blatant selfishness, emotional weakness and shameless, insatiable lust for power and stuff. I recently saw a car-rental commercial where the main theme and selling feature was that their service was, “no more standing in long lines, no more… etc., etc., …‘it’s about me’ car rental.”
Hear the call of the Lord! We must build an ark for our children
Mothers, we must rise early while it is yet night and get spiritual food for our household– our husbands and our children. Our priorities must be refocused appropriately, without delay. Our children…we cannot forget our children…they are counting on us to be girded up with strength - spiritually, mentally and physically, to protect them with arms strong and firm. This is our portion. Clothed with strength and dignity, through gentleness, forgiveness, and selflessness, we must prefer our families above ourselves. (Proverbs 31)
Fathers, you must raise the standard in your homes to that level which honors God. You can no longer compromise the virtuous mandate from God to teach your children holiness, humility and honor. The altars of your homes must be re-established and your children taught once again by their fathers, ‘to chose this day whom you will serve, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.’ You must grow up, shape up and step up and be the Godly men you were foreordained to be…men whose lives, inside and out, are changing to reflect the image of Christ. (Joshua 24)
If you hear the Father’s voice, do not delay…begin construction Today.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
