We are living in the last days, and we are seeing the great falling away of the Church. As prominent pastors, worship leaders and artists are walking away from their faith and denying Christ, they are taking with them entire generations of fans and followers, especially the younger generation. We are seeing record high suicides among children, and the internet has brought a new level of compromise and bullying that we as parents and caregivers did not have to deal with previously. The enemy has been relentless in deceiving and attacking our kids.


The Lord is sending out the alarm to His Church to be prayerful, vigilant and obedient to do whatever it takes to save our children from eternal destruction. With access to every evil portal into hell through the internet, social media, television, music and relationships, we as Christian parents cannot be naïve into thinking that our children have not been exposed, tempted or engaged in sin and compromise.


No matter how much we shelter and protect them, they still open access to evil through these outlets, and many times do not want to hurt or disappoint their families, so they keep the sin hidden, and it festers into their adult years. Many times, parents are unaware of their children’s struggles because they are either not paying attention to what their kids are watching and doing online, unaware of who they are hanging out with or want to be the cool and accepted parents, so they allow a little bit of compromise to stay “relevant” and often turn a blind eye to sin. Others assume that since their kids are being raised right, attend church and youth group regularly and think they know what friends they are associating with daily, they do not have to worry. I was one of those parents.


A few years back, when I discovered that my own teenager was struggling with hidden sin, it was like the rug was pulled out from under me. Through anger, I asked God how this could happen when I thought I was so resolute in protecting her. Where did I miss it? He reminded me of a prayer I prayed over her not too long before everything was revealed. I prayed that God would expose anything in her life that would affect her eternity and the call He had on her life. Although I was not prepared in any way for what was about to be exposed, He faithfully answered my prayers.


We went through a long season of pain as roots were revealed. I relentlessly tried to send the alarm to other Christian parents and pastors whose kids were also in trouble. Many ignored the call and swept it under the rug. Many ostracized and mocked me. I was resented by many and felt the sting of rejection. However, I was going to what it took to help my child and any others who were struggling. Even though the journey to healing was painful, I realized that I was not alone, and that God would help me stand and fight for my child and for this generation.


Our children are being granted open access to sin right under our noses! They are being overtly exposed to adult content and expected to handle it as an adult. As we witness record high addiction, promiscuity, suicide, murder, pornography and human trafficking rates skyrocket among children, it is time to wake up and do something! God gave us the care of His children, and we need to take it seriously!


Here are 7 ways you can help protect your kids from eternal destruction.


1. Pray ask God to reveal anything He needs you to know about your children. This is one of the most powerful prayers you can pray. It can also be the most painful. However, through His Holy Spirit, God is there to bring the peace, healing and strategy to start the steps in helping them. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come”. John 16:13 ESV


2. Be a parent, not friend! When is the last time you looked at your children’s phone, social media accounts, browsing history or what they are watching on television? When is the last time you went into their rooms and looked around? Do you really know the friends and their parents well enough before sending them over for sleepovers and outings? If you think that your child would never be engaged in sin through these mediums because they are strong and godly, you are being deceived. “If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” 1 John 1:8 ESV Ask the Holy Spirit to show you anything you need to know and be vigilant to find and deal with it! “The Lord our God has secrets known to no one. We are not accountable for them, but we and our children are accountable forever for all that He has revealed to us, so that we may obey all the terms of these instructions”. Deuteronomy 29:29 ESV We are called to be the stewards of these kids for God. While we can have friendship as part of the parent/child relationship, we are to be parents and God’s caregivers first and foremost.


3. Set and adhere to Holy Spirit-led rules, boundaries and consequences. If your child is struggling, ask God to show you the steps to take to help them as their spiritual authorities. Remove what needs to be removed and set what needs to set according to God’s strategy to protect and help our kids. Watch who you allow your kids to be around. Make them accountable for their decisions and actions by correcting and disciplining them! As painful as it may seem at the moment it is vital for their spiritual well-being. For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:11 ESV


4. Do not be a bystander parent. If we see our own or other kids mistreating, gossiping or compromising, we need to address it immediately in love. Bullies are not the only perpetrators to the victim. Bystanders are as well. Do not be a bystander parent and do not allow your children to be bystanders to evil. Teach them to stand up for God’s Word, Christ’s examples and go reach out and those who are hurting and in trouble. “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it” Proverbs 22:6 ESV


5. Ask God to reveal the root of the sin. When you pray, ask the Holy Spirit to show you the root and the open door where the enemy was allowed in. Something may have happened to them that you did not know, or they may have willingly chosen to sin. No matter what the root is, once it is exposed, walk your children through the Word and prayer to seek forgiveness and help. This may take time and much persistence, but do not give up, no matter how much pushback you get. The enemy wants to wear you down and make you give in or give up. We do not have to handle this on our own! The Holy Spirit is here to help! “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 NLT


6. Do not allow disappointment in your children or even in you change your perceptions on their God-given identities and your roles as parents and caregivers. When you discover that your child is struggling with hidden sin, remind them that you are displeased with the actions but not them. The enemy will immediately try and bring shame and hopelessness when sin is exposed. Point them immediately to the Word and to God’s and your forgiveness. “Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy”. Proverbs 28:13 ESV. Also accept God’s grace and mercy when the enemy tries to bring guilt to you for not knowing, and thank Him for revealing it. Just as we are not perfect, neither are our kids. Just like we are exposed to sin, they are too. You are not a failure!


7. Speak life into your children! The enemy attacked your kids and now it’s time to fight back in prayer, worship and thanksgiving! Pray without ceasing for your kids to have hearts of repentance and be ready to return to, serve and honor God. “But now this is what the LORD says: “Do not weep any longer, for I will reward you,” says the LORD. “Your children will come back to you from the distant land of the enemy. There is hope for your future,” says the LORD. Jeremiah 31:16-17 NLT


Remember, we will one day stand before Jesus and give accounts for how we raised His children. When choosing to be godly, vigilant, wise and uncompromising parents or caregivers, one moment of resentment from our kids and others who choose to turn a blind eye to sin and compromise will be well worth the eternal safekeeping of our children and future generations.




There are some who are facing their darkest hours of tragedy, persecution and loss right now. My family and I have recently faced a heart-shattering tragedy when my uncle was brutally murdered on Good Friday. I had already personally faced and persevered the most difficult year of my life, and this tragedy knocked me flat down.


As my family and I pick up the pieces of our shattered hearts and literally walk moment by moment through this tragic loss, I felt like God had abandoned us. There are still many unanswered questions, we are waiting for justice, and I am angry. People have told me that my faith was weak, or I didn’t have enough faith because I wasn’t saying or doing the right things in my time of grief and unknown future. I started to believe them until I had a revelation on what faith in God really is. My outlook of what defined faith changed when I heard these words from my pastor:


“Faith is not really faith until it is tested”.


It is easy to say we have the right amount of faith or real faith when everything is going well, comfortable and safe. It is easy to believe that we must have had big faith when our prayers were answered. It is easy to encourage others who are suffering when we haven’t faced their loss, tragedies, rejection and persecution. In these last days, Satan is on an all out assault on Christians around the world to turn from God. He is ruthless, relentless and brutal. The persecution of God’s children come in many forms, and we are tested now more than ever if we really believe in the goodness, love and eternal hope of God.


Measures of faith are not based on how many scriptures we recite, how we appear to others or how loud our praises can be heard. Authentic faith is based on our trust and commitment to God, even when our feelings, understanding and rational conflict. Faith arises through each wave of pain, desperation, suffering, grief and pain and is just as real through a whisper or tears. Faith can come after words of anger and anguish to God when we tell Him how we really feel about what is happening yet choose to still love and trust Him despite those feelings. When we read about those with great faith throughout the Bible, it always accompanied a great need, hardship and loss.


Here are four things to remember when our faith is tested:


1. As we experience brokenness and devastation, faith may only appear to be small and not of any significance to others. However, the roots of authentic faith are anchored deep in the One who will help us in our darkest hours. Our feelings, thoughts and circumstances may feel like God has abandoned and failed us, yet our decision to trust Him regardless of the tests, tragedies and trials we face is faith.


2. Jesus Himself had to have faith in His Father when he was betrayed, falsely accused, tempted and put to death. He was tested in every way we were. As he hung on the cross and became sin for us, He cried, “My God, My God, why have your forsaken me? “Matthew 27:46. His commitment to God’s plan and love for us despite his physical emotional and spiritual anguish in that moment demonstrated pure faith.


3. Our decision to trust in a loving God and Jesus as our Savior in this lost and broken world takes true faith. When the enemy has come to rob, steal, kill and destroy and all hope seems lost, it is faith that surpasses all human understanding, intellect and feelings. We can cry out for Jesus to help us keep the faith. “I called on your name, O Lord, from the depths of the pit. You heard my plea. Do not close your ears to my cry for relief. You came near when I called you and said, ‘Do not fear’”. Lamentations 3:55-57


4. Our measure of faith is not based on how successful, happy and put together our lives are on this earth. Jesus told us that we will face hard times, and that has nothing to do with our lack of faith. “I have told you these things, so that in Me You will have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 Rather, it is based on if we are still holding on to our eternal faith and hope when loss, persecution, and hopelessness occur. “So we fix our eyes on not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” 2 Corinthians 4:18.


If you are facing your darkest hour, do not lose hope. “In every way we’re troubled and not crushed, frustrated but not in despair, persecuted and not abandoned, struck down but not destroyed. 2 Corinthians 4:8-10. Cling to Jesus in the silence, pain and rubble. He is here and understands. No matter how much my heart hurts right now, I choose to believe this. Do not let people discourage you that your faith is weak because you have not responded or are unable to handle your pain the way or timeline, they feel you should. God knows your heart. He sees your tears. He feels your pain, and He is big enough to take what you have to say to Him.


No matter how bad, difficult or impossible your circumstances appear, He has an eternal plan to heal, restore and deliver those who have been severely tested, yet choose to love, follow and trust Him by faith.



Updated: Mar 19, 2019

In the wake of perversion being glorified, murder being celebrated, false religious practices being indoctrinated in our schools and hatred for Christians running rampant, it’s time to get serious.


As the days are getting darker, and the light of Jesus is needed more than ever, many churches, pastors, and believers are wandering around with empty lamps. And you know what an empty lamp will do for a lost and dying worldworld? Nothing. Without oil, there is no light. Without light, there is no revelation of sin and the need for a Savior. Without the revelation, there is no direction of repentance. Without repentance, there is no hope.


So why are we as Christians allowing worldly influences and power to dim, empty and dictate our lives?


If we are tired of the powers of darkness from news agencies and social media outlets who censor, mock and persecute Christian values, yet allow people with demonic platforms to freely share their messages, then let’s stop using their outlets until there is a change of heart.

If we are outraged on behalf of our fellow Christians who are persecuted for running their businesses the way they want to, then maybe we need to stop giving our time, money and integrity to businesses who openly support values that contradict God’s Word.


If we as Christians are tired of seeing evil presented as good, then we need to stop enabling that behavior by watching shows and movies, playing games and engaging in activities that that promote sexual sin, taking the name of our Savior in vain, and any other murderous, adulterous and demonic influences.


If we as Christians want revival to reach the nations for the Kingdom of God, then we have to stop mimicking the kingdom of darkness.


What are we so afraid of? Persecution? It’s already here. Just because many churches in this nation are so concerned about their fans, popularity and revenues and are blinded by the same darkness as non-believers, it does not dismiss the horrific and heartbreaking persecution around the world. There are people around the world dying daily for their commitment to Jesus who shine brighter than many self-proclaimed Christians who are so self-absorbed they do not even see what is happening. As the days get darker, it is vital that our lights shine brighter. We have to stop misrepresenting Christianity by intermingling with other religious practices, promoting a false sense of security for sin through sloppy grace, and enabling the powers of darkness to dictate our everyday lives.


What happened to preaching the pure and simple Gospel? What happened to speaking the truth about eternity, and that only followers of Christ will be in Heaven, and everyone else will be in Hell? What happened to repentance for sin and acknowledging the holiness of God? Those are the things that will fill our lamps back up with the precious time that is left.


How did we as the church let it get this far? It is not the world’s fault; it’s ours. They are in the darkness; we know better. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths”. 2 Timothy 4: 3-4


We need to stop waiting for someone else to take action to turn our nation back to Christ. We need to unify as followers of Christ and act now. Here are 5 passages from 2 Timothy to help fill are lamps with the oil needed to light our paths to reach the lost for God’s Kingdom.


1. We need to drop to our knees and repent for being silent to, tolerant of and compromising with darkness. “God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness... Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart” 2 Timothy 2:19, 22


2. We need to take the fluff out of our sermons and preach the pure and life-changing Gospel of the Lord Jesus. “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. Avoid godless chatter, because those who indulge in it will become more and more ungodly. Their teaching will spread like gangrene”. 2 Timothy 2:15-17


3. We need to value and make prayer and Bible study the center of our lives, our families and our ministries so we can clearly hear and obey the Holy Spirit. “Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you—guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us”. 2 Timothy 1:13


4. We need to be bold to call evil out and have no part of it. “But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people”. 2 Timothy 3: 1-5


5. We need to boldly and unashamedly preach, live and share the truth of God’s Word. is “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work”. 2 Timothy 3:16-17


We as believers and followers of Christ are called to be the light, and it’s time to stop blending in. It’s time to shine for Jesus, the one who have us the chance to live and serve Him before His return. He needs our lamps full because time is running out.
