The children and youth of America
are living in a crisis-type existence.
The basic character traits of a healthy, Christian
culture have been lost.
Modesty is almost entirely absent.
Respect for authority is missing in most homes and lives.
It was not that many years ago when pre-marital sex was
utterly taboo because of a simple respect for our sacred bodies.
A young lady that did not blush at a
suggestive word or action was considered loose.
Young men were gentlemen and they treated girls like
jewels to be protected.
Someone else’s property was never trashed, trampled upon,
or bothered. The
mischievous things children and youth did was little more than
boys pulling girl’s pigtails and girls giggling non-stop.
Everything of moral value has deteriorated almost to the
point of being non-existent.
Our church world has got to wake up
to the powers behind this almost total destruction of the young.
It is not just worldliness or spiritual indifference.
Our young people and, even the majority of children, have
not just forgotten God.
The battle is a battle of unclean spirits with a complete
intention to make America (and the world) another Sodom and
Gomorrah of filth.
The speed at which this nation is going to hell is breathtaking.
There is an invasion of demon
spirits throughout the land.
As bad as the invasion sounds, that’s not the biggest
problem. Demons can
only accomplish what they are invited or allowed to do.
There has never been a time since the fall of Adam and
Eve in the Garden of Eden that demons were not active and ready
to destroy. The
difference in today’s world is that our defense against these
spirits of hell has almost totally disappeared.
There is nowhere that this fact is truer than with our
children and youth.
Demons can only possess that which
is unclean. They
cannot control or possess a pure child or a holy adult.
Evil spirits will never overpower children in a godly
home that refuses to compromise their lifestyle, refuses to hang
around unclean persons, and refuses to put filth before their
eyes. Children with
a dad or mom that stands in the doorway of their lives by the
power of the Holy Ghost will be protected.
That parent has got to set the standard and not allow any
compromise of truth.
The Bible plainly says that every
child living in a home where neither parent is saved – under the
protection of the blood – is automatically rendered unclean.
Apostle Paul said it clearly, “For the unbelieving
husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is
sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but
now are they holy”
(I Corinthians 7:14).
Only a godly parent – or parents – can guarantee their
children being kept clean and protected.
The blood of Jesus Christ in a believer, who is living in
the power of that blood, has a clear promise in this Bible
covenant to have pure children.
It must be claimed by faith and lived in faithfulness.
A home that allows moral uncleanness
of any description opens the door for their children to be
defiled and attacked by unclean spirits.
Filth on television, radio, CDs, videos, or the Internet
can and will defile any child or youth that is involved in this
are born with the protection of a holy angel, but that angel
will not abide when filth is welcomed into their life.
Occult themes in books (Harry Potter and others), on
cartoons, or from any other source will open the mind to the
invasion of evil spirits.
Undisciplined children will develop
a strong self-will.
Nothing subjects a child or young person to unclean spirits
quicker than a stubborn will.
Parents are commanded to teach their family a disciplined
Discipline is self-control and orderly living.
Evil spirits are fallen angels that lost control by
Undisciplined lives fit the same pattern as unclean spirits and
offer an easy entrance to the fallen spirit world.
“Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the
rod of correction shall drive it far from him”
Rock music and other aberrant forms
of entertainment are running rampant in Satanism.
The words that elicit the loudest applause in the music
and entertainment world are words that are anti-God, immoral,
Most singing groups make sport out of bashing moral values and
children and youth under its influence are left without a
standard to champion.
Evil spirits love to fill that vacuum left by such
Mankind was not created to love
living a dirty lifestyle.
Immorality saps the life out of any person living this
Homosexuality and lesbianism is Satan’s ultimate slap in God’s
The only possible way you can enjoy
living an unclean lifestyle is to allow unclean spirits to make
that kind of life appear acceptable or normal.
Every immoral act or thought – especially every unclean
pleasure – is the work of spirits that have been welcomed or
years ago, when an old-time man of God prayed for a person with
an unclean habit, they always viewed that person as needing to
be delivered. They
knew that uncleanness, tobacco, whiskey, cursing, or any other
bondage was the bondage of an unclean spirit.
Our children have to be delivered.
The only way revival and great conversions are going to
occur in the hearts and lives of our youth is through a return
to a proper understanding of the problem.
A high percentage of the entire American family has
allowed unclean living to attract unclean spirits.
Those spirits will not leave just because someone walks a
church aisle or repeats a prayer.
Holy Ghost-filled men and women have got to become
powerful altar workers.
Satan, as well as every fallen
angel, has been defeated at Calvary.
At the same time, our world is flooded with wickedness.
Apostle John left no doubt about the condition in our
world. “And we know
that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness”
(I John 5:19).
The authority of the pure Word of God and the power of
the blood is the only victory for our children and ourselves.

Victory In Your Home & Family.”)
