This is war! There is an all-out, full-fledged attack on this generation of young men and women. The reality is that without a genuine awakening to truth and the Holy Spirit, statistics point to only 4% of those born after 1984 being born again believers. Only 4%! Roughly 16% of my generation [born between 1965 and 1983] consider themselves to be born again. Of the generation born between 1946 – 1964, only 35% are deemed to be born again followers of Christ. This generation is currently in charge of American leadership.
Think about it. Our culture is shaped by morally corrupt movies and television programs, increasingly perverted music, a pornographic invasion on the internet, the legalization of homosexual marriage, the removal of the Ten Commandments from public buildings, and an attempt to take “under God” out of the Pledge of Allegiance. Christianity is under attack in the United States and around the world.
The shapers of our modern culture are, for the most part, motivated by the spirit of anti-Christ. It should be obvious to the discerning observer that there is a concerted effort in America to silence voices of truth. We are now living in the time when many call “evil good and good evil: who exchange darkness for light, and light for darkness; who exchange bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” [Isaiah 5:20]
Indeed, we are living in the last days when the Holy Spirit declared, “Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall…” [Isaiah 40:30] We see it all around us; the youth of our culture are worn out. They are weary in their minds, and when people become fatigued, they yield more readily to the influence of the culture. I know that there are wonderful exceptions but too many of the youth of today fall into these generalizations. Far too many live without purpose, with very little understanding of the value of life, and with souls that are increasingly being desensitized to the sin which steals, kills and destroys.
Why is the enemy fighting for our children so ferociously? It is because the prophecies concerning this generation terrify him. Haggai declared, “The glory of this latter house will be greater than the former, says the LORD of Hosts.” [Hag. 2:9} Of course, this prophecy was fulfilled when Jesus entered the Temple, but it will find its ultimate fulfillment as Jesus manifests in this generation. Prophetic words abound expressing God’s desire to display His glory in and through the generation that will herald the return of our Lord! And the enemy knows that God will bring them to pass! It is just a matter of time.Why is the enemy fighting for our children so ferociously? It is because the prophecies concerning this generation terrify him. Click To Tweet
The enemy does not know everything about the future. He simply cannot accurately predict it. Just look at Job. Satan predicted that Job would curse God, but he was wrong! Hallelujah! He’s wrong about you too! But while the enemy does not know all there is to know about the future, he is a spiritual being and as such is aware of things happening in the spiritual realm. He is mindful of the fact that the spotlight of Heaven is upon this generation! God is in the process of raising a tribe of Josiah’s that will shake the nations and shape their world.
WE must fight for the generation that the enemy is fighting so hard against. How? We combat the devil’s ideas with the truth. There is a generation that is hungry deep in their souls for truth and authenticity. [John 8:31-32] We confront the weariness that is invading our youth like cancer with the joy of the LORD. [Nehemiah 8:10] We face purposelessness that produces hopeless living with the prophetic declaration of the plan of God. [Jeremiah 29:11]
To put it simply, we must make Jesus famous in this generation! Not the Jesus of the world’s design or the Jesus created in the image of religious men and women but the real authentic Jesus of the Bible. He loves children, and He longs to release every boy and girl into the fullness of His design.We must make Jesus famous in this generation! Click To Tweet
