Hearts of the Fathers
by Erik Momsen
With some of the highest rates of murder, violence, disease, drug and alcohol abuse in the world I think I am justified in saying that curses have been released over this land. The good news is that Jesus came to break the curse in His body on the Cross. We however need to walk in His ways (come follow Me) and apply the truth that God has to set free.
The curse that has been released over this land is seen in the very last verse of the old testament. It is wonderful that Luke picks this issue up in only the seventeenth verse of his gospel (Luke 1:17).
“Pay attention! I'm sending Elijah the prophet to you before the great and dreadful Day of the LORD comes, and he will turn the hearts of fathers to children, and the hearts of children to their fathers. Otherwise, I'll come, strike the land, and utterly destroy it." (Malachi 4:5,6)
"But also look ahead: I'm sending Elijah the prophet to clear the way for the Big Day of God―the decisive Judgment Day! He will convince parents to look after their children and children to look up to their parents. If they refuse, I'll come and put the land under a curse." (The Message)
"He will bring fathers and children together again; otherwise I would have to come and destroy your country." (GNB)
THE FAMILY IS THE PLACE OF SALVATION
THE FAMILY IS THE PLACE OF HEALING AND SAFETY
THE FAMILY IS THE PLACE OF PROSPERITY
THE FAMILY IS THE PLACE OF GOD'S BLESSING
THIS IS WHY SATAN ATTACKS HERE SO VIGOROUSLY
SATAN ATTACKS THE SEED
GOD'S HEARTS FOR GENERATIONS
“Indeed, I've made myself known to him in order that he may encourage his sons and his household that is born after him to keep the way of the LORD, and to do what is right and just, so that the LORD may bring about for Abraham what he has promised." Genesis 18:19
GOD'S PLAN FOR A MAN'S LIFE
Psalm 127:1-5 “A Song of degrees for Solomon. Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.”
MODERN MAN IS SET ON FINANCIAL SUCCESS
HIS GREATEST VALUE IS MONEY & POWER
HE STRESSES OVER SUCCESS
GOD'S VALUE IS IN CHILDREN - THEY ARE THE BEST HE DOES
PEOPLE ARE THE ULTIMATELY VALUABLE CREATION
PEOPLE POWER SEEN AT THE GATES
THE CALL ON THE CHILDREN
Luke 1:17 He is the one who will go before the Lord with the spirit and power of Elijah to turn the hearts of parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous, and to prepare the people to be ready for the Lord."
LUKE REPLACES “CHILDREN” WITH DISOBEDIENT
GREAT NEWS = REVIVAL OFTEN START WITH THE YOUNG
IT IS WISE TO BE RIGHTEOUS – “drunks break their cars & bikes”
GOD IS CALLING US TO GET OUR HEARTS RIGHT TOWARDS EACH OTHER.
PARENT TO CHILD & CHILD TO PARENT.
GREATEST BLESSING LIES IN THIS & GOD IS ON OUR SIDE.
