OVERCOMING THE ANTI-PROGENITORIAL SPIRIT IN TRIBULATION
A Word to Faithful Christian Homeschooling Families Bereft of Lost Children
Jn. 15:18 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me.
Jn. 16:33 These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
I Jn. 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.
Tribulation is the price we pay for knowing God and living according to His will amidst this world. It is the price we pay simply for being different. Being different carries a stigma.
The Anti-Progenitorial Spirit
Children need to ask, “why” are they wanting to change this standard or this practice or that way of living which they were taught? But they are not consciously asking that question. Rather, they are responding to the stimuli around them and drawing conclusions based on that stimuli alone—how it makes them feel to be different—without any real thought as to why or how acceptability to God is at issue.
II Tim. 3:1 But realize this, that
in the last days difficult times will come. 2
For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful,
arrogant, revilers, disobedient
to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3
unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without
self-control, brutal, haters of good,4
treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers
of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5
holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied
Mal. 4:5 “Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. 6 He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.”
Jn. 16:33 “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.”
With whom does that overcoming begin? Does it begin with the children? No. It begins with the fathers. The turning of the hearts of the fathers to the children precedes the turning of the children to the hearts of the fathers. We of the older generation have the first call to be turned toward the hearts of those of the younger generation. This is true in the natural as pertains to the families, and it is true in the spiritual as pertains to the churches. (How much lack of spiritual parenting and reproducing of leadership has taken place in the churches leading to spiritual a-parentism and the despising of church leaders who have groomed no one but themselves to perpetual control?)
Elijah, Jezebel and Mt. Carmel – The Anti Progenitorial Showdown
If Elijah is the man called on in the final days to overcome the anti-progenitorial curse, then Jezebel is the personification of that spirit. What is Jezebel known for? Her rebellion, her sorceries and her immorality. All these have beset the younger generations of the last 50 years especially in the West. All the cancers that have destroyed the family including the gay and feminist movements are directly tied to Jezebel. These are the “children” of Jezebel spoken of in Revelation:
2:23 I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.
For quite some years there has been prophecy of a coming revival marked by a Mt. Carmel showdown between the spirit of Elijah and the spirit of Jezebel in the church and in the nations. If this is true—and it is true—then a key element of that outpouring will be the casting down of the anti-progenitorial spirit among the people of God in fulfillment of Malachi’s prophecy.
In the Mt. Carmel showdown, when God answers by fire to prove that he is the one true God in Israel, Elijah proceeds to kill all the prophets of Baal. These prophets represent those in the church who advance the anti-progenitorial spirits of Jezebel, including homosexuality, feminism, rebellion, idolatry, witchcraft, a-parentism and a-theism of every kind. The prophets of Baal are the “children of Jezebel” to be killed in Revelation 2 by the Elijah spirit. And this is the “overcoming of the world” in the church promised by Jesus in the face of the tribulation brought on the church by anti-progenitorialism.
Many family restoration ministries have arisen the last two generations in the West to challenge the societal breakup of the family and the anti-progenitorial movements that have cursed the land since, but without success. For they have not possessed the spirit of Elijah, but only a fleshly-minded nostalgia for restoring “the past.” But nevertheless, as Jesus said, “Take heart, I have overcome the world.”
In other words, let us not be discouraged by the past failures of now dying ministries who had a good heart, but were ineffective in their approach. The promise of overcoming the world remains. The Elijah spirit will arise. Until then, the “anti-progenitors” are being “given time to repent” (2:21). But when the Elijah spirit comes, the anti-progenitorial children of Jezebel in the church will be “put to death.” There will come to the church a revival of holiness marked by a restored wholeness of the generations both naturally and spiritually. And God will protect that restoration in the Elijan wilderness unto His coming.
If your heart is faint because of the tide of immorality, rebellion, witchcraft and atheism that has invaded the land, “Take courage,” And if your own family and church have fallen victim to the anti-progenitorial spirit, “Take heart.” Elijah is on the way. And He will not tarry. And He will overcome the world in our midst. The curse among us will be reversed. And the righteousness for which our soul has hungered in the land will be satisfied.
