Protecting Your Family in the Days to Come
We tried to make this a quick study, as we know that time is a valuable commodity that many have in short supply. I know you’re probably tired of Scriptures being thrown at you, but bear with us, and read them thoroughly. So let’s get started.
Genesis 26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.
The father of the faithful kept everything God gave him and we are instructed to do the same. Keeping of God’s Commandments and law runs throughout the Bible.
Deuteronomy 4:40 Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.
Deuteronomy 5:10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
He offers mercy to those who do, and it allows us to show Him we love Him.
Deuteronomy 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!
Keeping Commandments shows Him that we want our children taken care of.
Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;
That would include even us.
Deuteronomy 8:11 Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:
See, forgetting God comes from not keeping the Commandments. We are not told by God to memorize His Commandments, but to wear them and to apply them to our homes.
Deuteronomy 6:8-9 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
That’s enough from the Law, let’s go into the Prophets.
Proverbs 2:6 For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs:3:1-2 My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments; for length of days, and long life, and peace shall they add to thee.
So, the Lord gives us wisdom, and we should keep the commandments in our hearts. How do we do that?
Proverbs 6:20-21 My son, keep thy father’s commandments, and forsake not the law of thy mother. Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.
Proverbs 5:7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
Keep them, be faithful to His Word for He is faithful
Psalm 121:7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
Must evil effect every family as thoroughly as death, before people will act. Obey God, He is head of America. When someone approaches us, we don’t know their intent, we don’t/can’t read their heart. God can and every Christian should protect themselves utilizing His help.
Psalm 121:8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
Protect your family, your home, your belongings. Wrap everything in the words of His mouth. Remember, they come to still, kill and destroy.
Psalm 121:5 The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
And now for the New Testament.
Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
God gave us His written Word that we may teach them to our children. And establish them in our home.
John 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
John 15:10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love.
Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
It seems like we are back to God’s advice about keeping His Commandments, and the law of thy mother. I’ll give you one hint, we call it a ‘motherland’ for a reason.
Spoken Word = Ten Commandments
Written Word = Ten Commandments
God’s Word made flesh = Jesus, the Law that hung on the cross = Ten Commandments. Can you see Holy, Holy, Holy? That “law” that hung on the cross was Jesus. That Law God wrote on your heart is Jesus.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Proverbs 2:1 My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee;
Our preachers tell us to give everything to God. That would be binding His Word and applying it to everything. Your family, your home and all belongings.
Proverbs 3:24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
Deuteronomy 6:24 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.
Might I suggest you look up the word “commandments” or “words of my mouth” on http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org
May God go with you and yours to protect and keep all you hold dear.
