It’s interesting how some conversations start and how they progress into our thinking of the past, which at times is not such a bad place to go.
My son and his friend came over for a bit when I got off work. He wanted to call his dad and check in. His dad lives in Ottawa and is not doing so well health wise (possibly dying). So he comes over as he only has a cell phone. My son does not live with me, even though he is only 17 years old. He has chosen a lifestyle which I do not approve off and support so he is living with another family member. I do see him two or three times per month and I take him out to eat. I enjoy spending time with him but it is hard knowing the life he leads and what the consequences of that life could be. He is a man, even though the world would still call him a teenager. We have babyed our youth and allowed them to stay immature for way to long. We have created a rebellious, immature, spoiled, greedy culture who when not given what they want when they want it run away or move in with a bunch of friends, which move from home to home. I call them couch leeches as they live on other peoples couch’s for long periods of time and then move on to another.
My son started talking about his night outs and the trouble he gets in. He finds it quite amusing. I find it scary! It really got me to thinking though that I had a past and it was probably worse than his. This gave me hope. To know that even with me bieng so lost and many times close to death the Lord had a purpose, He had a plan from the beginning of the world for me. He knew me before I was even born. He chose me before I was even born. I was predestined to be one of His. He called me out from among the worldlings. He set my feet on another path. A path of righteousness. All this for His glory!
Roman 9:11 (For [the children] being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth.
2Ti 2:10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
Romans 9:23And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory,
So you see, there is still hope for my son. I pray for his regeneration. I pray that the Lord would over take his will and draw him to Himself. In the end it is up to the Lord. He chooses whom He wills and I will rest in that.
Welcome to what I hope to show here is a glimpse into the life of a wife, mother and women whose life is on a journey to complete physical and mental separation from the world, it's anti-christ system and learning how to walk in obediance on a daily basis.
Who am I? Well I guess I would have to say I am a person who is walking out my salvation with fear and trembling. I am a woman that wants to be a Godly wife, mother and friend and who daily trust God to help me die to self. My husband and I are in a process of separation from worldly ways. We believe as well that God had a plan from the beginning of time and we have departed from that plan and are living the consequences of that. A Biblical Agrarian lifestyle is what God ordained from the beginning of life and His word shows clearly that He wants us to live the way He designed us to live . We believe in the elect of God. We believe in a sovereign God who is in complete control. Life is process driven, not purpose driven. We walk each day in the mercy of God and believe only He can change a heart and draw man unto himself.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
2 Co 6:17-18
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
“Wherein lies then the maintenance of God’s order in the family? The answer to this question is found in both Ephesians and Colossians. (Eph. 5: 22-33, Eph. 6: 1-9; Col. 3: 18-25, Col. 4: 1.) The husband is the head, and as such has to act as God’s vice-regent, to govern not according to his, but according to the divine will. The authority put into his hands is from the Lord, and it is his to wield for Him, and it cannot therefore be delegated to another. The wife is in subjection to her husband, even as the Church is subject to Christ, the husband on his part having to love his wife even as Christ loved the Church, and gave Himself for it. The responsibility of children is to obey their parents in the Lord. Their obedience is to be absolute, qualified only by the condition — in the Lord. Servants have likewise to obey their masters, parents and masters having on their side their respective obligations.
With these instructions before us, it is easy to perceive that if the wife govern instead of the husband, or if the children are permitted to have their own way, to please themselves instead of living in subjection; or if, again, servants are allowed to govern the household, it could not be productive either of blessing, harmony, or happiness. No; the pathway of blessing is the pathway of obedience in the several spheres we are called upon to fill. And when this is acknowledged by the various members of a family, that household becomes a testimony for God in a scene where all have departed from Him — a bright circle of light in the midst of surrounding darkness, and an anticipation of millennial blessing when the Lord’s authority shall be acknowledged throughout the whole world.”
