Think and Rethink before you become irresponsible in your calling.
Acts 21:9 says:
*And the same man(PHILIP) had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy*
Have you thought deeply about a man called Philip?
This is an example of a godly and a well-disciplined man. He had four daughters and they were all virgins.
How would he have done it that his family was not an embarrassment to God’s name?
Some Christian parents today failed in this regard. They complain that the world is changing yet Philip raised four daughters who are known for godliness and meaningful life. Do you think there was no immorality and fornicators then? They are. Read Paul epistles in 1 Cor. 3, 5, 6 to see what other children were doing.
Do you think it’s hard for ministers to raise Goldy children? I don’t think so because here is a man who did unusual exploit for God’s kingdom and yet he raised responsible children for God’s Glory. As an evangelist, Philip had to travel from Region to Region and nations to nations to preach the gospel.
Mummy and Daddy, what kind of children are you raising? Drug addict, sex workers, hooligans…. It will surprise you to know that many parents ruin the life of their children by neglecting their duties. I have related with young men and women for years and have genuine evidence that many ministers were victim of abuse because of negligence of duty in there Parents side.
We know you have title. You are ZONAL DADDY and ZONAL Mummy but where are the fruits of your title? You are after title and position but can’t even pass your family test.
You train other people’s children to respect but your own children are decaying. The same respect you want from other people’s children is what you prevent your children from giving to others, whereas charity begins at home.
Apart from the fact that they were virgins, they were said to be prophesying. Whao!!!! Even people with big title today don’t know anything about prophecy but are full of self inspired sweet words that arouses people’s feelings without result.
Note: If they hadn’t prophecy before those disciples that slept in their father’s house wouldn’t have known that they were all prophesying. The must have been in the spirit & prophesied. They we’re women full of Hoy Spirit not slaying queen with empty cavity.
You see, this generation is decaying in the sense that we have left the reality and now chasing shadows. We need to copy responsible Christians and leaders with good track record. Philip was a deacon but more responsible in his duty than those people with big title yet little meaningful contribution to the world and God’s Kingdom.
Do you also note that Philip was an evangelist yet he still managed to train his children with his wife? What is your excuse daddy and mummy? We see your title and activities but less impact in the lives of your children.
The level of moral decadence in many Christian homes are not better than the world. Christian home, yet under your nose, your little girl and boy have been sexually molested and become addicted when their mates are doing exploit and breaking new grounds. Pls, let us return back to what Christian home should really be and stop acting foolishly.
Are you raising your kids for God’s kingdom or devil’s kingdom?
