Thank you for stopping by to share the word of our beloved GOD. As we all live together in this fallen world. For we need each of us who love GOD to encourage each other. For our beloved FATHER is pleased when we come together in unity to praise HIM!
As each of us can remember the good times we may have had with our family elders. I too remember mine from time to time when I was a child. The first thing we will remember is the food that our Grandmother’s made in the kitchen or grilled outside that smelled so delish! How we would laugh together too!
And we can all remember the wisdom from our wise elders who would tell us stories of their past too. Things they have learned as they were growing up that helped them make it threw all trials with the help of GOD. They gave examples of faith to learn from.
An these examples of their faith and trust in GOD, and showing you how they have accepted JESUS as their personal savior then gives you more understanding now. The trials and tribulations that they have experienced is a lesson for us too.
“Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.”
You know to be an elder should not be a disgrace to be disrespected as we see how elders are treated today. And seeing that age is sometimes treated as a bad thing in this fallen world, it leaves godly wisdom from the elders kicked aside. Youth is praised, and considers better, wiser and smarter than anyone older than 21. And being older than 21 is mocked and treated as though they should be ready for the grave. You see how young fashion models and female athletes are when they are competing with and older female.
So therefore if an elder is trying to share wisdom with the younger ones, to prevent them from falling into a snare that the elder was trying to warm them about. I have seen it happen as a young child when other children did listen to their Mom or Dad and would get hurt somehow.
Well not only did that child learn, but watching the end result of what happened to the other child, I saw well I didn’t want that happening to me. I am glad I was told not to do that thing and I listened. My elders warned me and I came out good by listening.
You know , not many people have had the chance to listen to righteous elders. There are many people who are older who are wicked that indoctrinate young people to do evil. Look at what some adults do to children that is totally not what GOD will approve of. And this is deadly poison to a young child. I do understand this. And I do ask that we all pray for these babies, children and young adults that were abused.
But right now I am talking about the righteous elders that GOD approves of. That He will use to guide the younger people of the world so they will be saved from hell. We all need to listen to our elders who love GOD and who are saved by the blood of JESUS. They are spiritually discerned and in the word of GOD.
