The Lord God created men to be leaders. But this world system is creating "cookie cutter" males. Popular society is pressuring males to look like the female, or at least androgynous (being both male and female), in some form or other. Male fashion trends are leading them to look more and more like females. Far too many men have laid down their responsibilities as leaders and fathers and left women to "pick up their slack". Boys have no strong fathers of Biblically moral character to look up to as examples of what manhood is supposed to look like. That has a domino effect, getting further and further from Biblical principles with every generation. A very wise man, Solomon, put it this way: Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Training takes time and effort. It takes commitment and sacrifice, and far too many parents are not willing or able to do this.
There is a Jezebel spirit loose in this world that robs the man of his masculinity and man has allowed this to happen. That spirit strips man of the person the Lord God created him to be and of his purpose. Why has this been allowed to happen? Mankind has failed to embrace the Lord God's Son, who was sent to restore the Kingdom within mankind through His Holy Spirit (the Governor). They also have never discovered their purpose. Sadly, it will get worse before it gets better: But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Read those scriptures carefully. Does it sound familiar to you? This is what happens when you fail to instruct and train up your sons and your daughters and teach them what a man of sound moral, Biblical character looks and acts like...men who model those characteristics. Morality is reaching an all-time low. All you need to reverse this failure is to know the Lord God's Constitution--the Bible--and live what you read.
Our responsibility as Kingdom citizens is to learn the Kingdom concept and message and teach them to others, especially our sons and our daughters. Prepare them for the King's physical return. Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen. Keep in mind, the Lord's principles are eternal and unchanging. There are certain things that He hates that come into conflict with His Character and Principles.
These six things the Lord hates; yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren.
The same things that the Lord God hates, we as Kingdom men, should also hate, if we are born again and filled with His Spirit. If you don't, you are just a religious person that attends a religious institution. Being filled with the Holy Spirit and God's Word, we should love what God loves and hate what God hates. We should be one with His Spirit. Remember what the Lord Jesus stated to the religious leader. Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
Regardless of what others may say, men without Kingdom (Biblical) principles cannot be totally trusted. If they don't behave in the manner of what they say they believe, or if he cheats on his wife, what do you think he would do as an employee or a business partner? Think about this before you associate with someone:
If a man is dishonest with his wife and family--the people who are the most close to him--how can he be trusted to work for you or run a business with you? His wife is supposed to be his best friend and he has betrayed her. Why would he treat you any better? When they reveal who they really are, believe them!
