This strong title was thought to get someone attention as we continue to see the overt and covert work of Satan, the Bible says the enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy also to be mindful of the devices of the enemy.Micheal Porter's book " Kill Them Before They Grow"with the subtitle "Misdiagnosis of African American Boys in American Classrooms". Speaks of a diabolical scheme to destroy a generation that Satan has set up an evil system that is sown into every fiber and fabric of both this nations history and it's present condition. This scheme is very obvious in some places and extremely subtle in others, but its objective is to render the Body of Christ impotent and unable to come together as the community of faith is intended too.Let's go to the Word of God in Matthew 2:7-8,12-18 (NLT) Then Herod called for a private meeting with the wise men, and he learned from them the time when the star first appeared. 8 Then he told them, “Go to Bethlehem and search carefully for the child. And when you find him, come back and tell me so that I can go and worship him, too!”
12 When it was time to leave, they returned to their own country by another route, for God had warned them in a dream not to return to Herod.
The Escape to Egypt
13 After the wise men were gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up! Flee to Egypt with the child and his mother,” the angel said. “Stay there until I tell you to return, because Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.”
14 That night Joseph left for Egypt with the child and Mary, his mother, 15 and they stayed there until Herod’s death. This fulfilled what the Lord had spoken through the prophet: “I called my Son out of Egypt.” [fn5]
16 Herod was furious when he realized that the wise men had outwitted him. He sent soldiers to kill all the boys in and around Bethlehem who were two years old and under, based on the wise men’s report of the star’s first appearance. 17 Herod’s brutal action fulfilled what God had spoken through the prophet Jeremiah:
18 “A cry was heard in Ramah—
weeping and great mourning.
Rachel weeps for her children,
refusing to be comforted,for they are dead.”
Here in the text Herod did not want to praise or acknowledge the child he wanted to kill him. He knew what the system of this world knows that if a generation grows up healthy physically and mentally that at the appointed time they will be able to take their rightful place in that society. The attack begins by doing all it can by removing God from the public square, and by doing so as it says in the book of Judges "they did what was right in there own eyes". The inner city becomes a place that Charles Darwin would liken to the "survival of the fittest". Many of these persons by the time they leave elementary school they have have dropped out mentally and have lost their sense of pride and purpose. Brothers and Sisters there is more than one way to kill someone you can do it with weapons, do it with words ,instilling worthlessness,through welfare. You can take away a person's spirit, identity, destroy their dream and tell them directly and indirectly they have no purpose. When this kind of attack employed is done overtly and covertly long enough and starts early enough to undo the damage will take tremendous work therapeutically and spiritually something that many of "us" are unwilling to do.I close with this, what weapon(s) has the enemy used against you, your family, your community and how is it effecting you, your family and your community. This was written as a internal look and some of the things that winked at and looked the other way ! Let's look to the hills which come our help for our help comes from the LORD ! AMEN I dedicate this message to Pearline S Lee (my mother) she has been a constant source of strength in my LIFE I am blessed to have had a living example of JESUS CHRIST
