Children shall put their parents to death
I just buried a friend. I watched her suffer, and die, for over 10 years, before she took her last breath.
Mat 10:21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child:
and the children shall rise up against [their] parents, and cause them to be put to death.
This seems like something difficult to imagine, that family would turn against each other, and children would harm their parents.
Thankfully, for the most part, this does not happen.
But this is to address the situations when it does happen.
Over the centuries, there have been many cases of someone converting to Christianity, and the unbelieving family turning against them. This is what most people would think the bible passage meant.
However, today, this has taken on a more sinister development.
Source # 1 – Cult churches and the Jezebel Pastor
There are opportunities for the false church to have direct access to the children, in the parents’ absence. Sunday school classes, private relationships and meetings, and youth groups.
In Christian families, children are learning rebellion and disrespect for parents in cult churches, from false pastors (Jezebel pastors) who lure them, and fill them with a superior attitude, and the permission to slander and condemn their parents.
Seeing the pastor as a “holy man of God” they are easily influenced to go against their parents, who seem spiritually unsuccessful in comparison.
While children are just babes, the cult church will brainwash them behind the parent’s back, and convince them they are “anointed” and more holy than their parents.
This justifies the demand for the parents to submit to the selfish demands of the children.
This reminds me of the Nazi youth groups who turned in their own parents as criminals to be prosecuted. All it took was an accusation.
Cult churches turn young believers into Baal worshippers, as the children are lured with power and prosperity messages.
Parents who are trying to teach humility can be usurped by the church, who takes the children as church property.
It might take overly trusting parents to take awhile to realize what is wrong.
By the time the parents realize what is happening, the false pastor and cult church has gotten the allegiance of the children, who are then encouraged to spin false tales of their parents.
Children then are more attached to the church than their parents, and will falsely accuse them of abuse, when the parents try to discipline them for rebellion and disrespect.
Parents are accused of trying to control their children.
They are accused of abuse and other sins, while it is really the children who are committing sin against the parents, by lying about them.
Parents can get reported to child protective services for just trying to bring up their children correctly.
Children and the church can align and bring legal action against the parents, in order to completely destroy the parent’s reputation, their parental rights, and the family structure itself.
The stress and damage against the parent can be incredible, and even lethal.
I saw this happen with my friend. She died of a broken heart, but officially it will read that she had medical problems.
If your child is showing these symptoms, investigate quickly, or you will loose them.
Source # 2 – Jezebel family members who are “Good Christians”
First of all, there is no such thing as a “Christian Jezebel.”
A Jezebel is an unrepentant sinner, and needs to be saved. The Jezebel is also a tool of the devil himself.
Anyone who is a Jezebel cannot legitimately call themselves a Christian.
The Jezebel family member, whether it be a spouse, parent, grandmother, uncle, etc, is a source of rebellion and control in the family.
Many times, they are important people in the church, and have some sort of ministry, because they want this attention and control over others, who should obey them, since they are so “special.”
They are quick to call themselves teachers, pastors, prophets, etc. They want that authority position.
Children can be manipulated into turning against one parent, and favoring the family member. This can cause huge problems, and damage.
The same family breaks up, and legal cases can arise from the influence of the Jezebel activity.
The immoral and twisted value system of the Jezebel will be transferred to the children, and the children will turn against their parents.
I have testimonies from decent parents on this site who are suffering from this kind of attack.
Source # 3 – School & Society
You may teach your children at home what is righteous, but they can unlearn everything at school.
Godless teachers and administrators, inappropriate teachings, and rebellious children will convince children that the parents are wrong, and they are right.
They have convinced themselves that they are better authorities than the parents are when it comes to child rearing.
They are also prepared to look for “abusive parents” who by their standards, discipline their children in any way.
They encourage children to report any form of discipline.
There is real abuse, which should be reported.
But, rational, and appropriate, discipline is not abuse.
But, they will use any form of discipline as a criteria to contact Child Protective Services, and remove parental rights, and take control of the children.
There are good teachers and bad ones, so this depends on the moral values of the teacher.
The majority opinions out number, and outvote, the parents on any issue.
Law officers and other officials have been known to misadvise children. I knew of one officer who was advising underage runaways that they could legally leave home at 16 years old. So, instead of supporting the anguished parent, who was looking for the child, he was aiding the rebellious behavior.
The values of society are not necessarily moral.
Children will go with the majority opinion, and peer pressure.
Children will sacrifice their parents, if they are convinced that the parents are wrong, and hindering their “rights” and “freedom.”
Source # 4 – the Parents themselves
If parents are rebellious, abusive, and lawless themselves, they should not expect anything different from their children.
They cannot have a double standard. One for themselves, and one for the children.
Parents have to set a good example, and be right with God, before they can hope for anything positive for their children.
Stay close to your children, and confirm daily what is being taught to them.
Do not just assume that the only thing they are getting at school, or out in the world, is academic instruction.
Be quick to de-program them, and make your own rights known and assert them.
Set a good example for them to follow.
