To the struggling now there is not all about carrying around Dr. Tony Evans says is more important than ever for fathers to man up and take a stand for godly values that you can send celebrating faithfulness.

This is the alternative Dr. Tony Evans, author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the alternative. Sometimes life seems so can wax just making it through today seems like a real accomplishment, but Dr. Evans is King demand need to be looking much further down the road.

Throughout our lives and beyond. Let's join them as he explains a lot about legacy about what is passed on to the next generation and beyond. In fact, Proverbs chapter 13 verse 22 says a good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children. Today we live in a day of societal chaos that chaos can be routed back to mid will refuse to build a spiritual legacy to review man up to God's requirement for biblical man and like it or not, God starts with holding the man responsible for how the legacy works out or does not.

The whole nation of the human rights is tidal. The Bible says in Adam all die doesn't say in Adam and only the man all die. That is because the man was held responsible and so were introduced in this boring passage of Scripture to a man name Asher had one son and one daughter in the story of Asher as you'll see, it comes out pretty good, but he didn't start that way you see Asher if the seven son of Jacob, that means he's been raised in a dysfunctional one, raise a good healthy environment. It wasn't the kind of environment that what had been in one orderly family structure that I want to give all of us here today, especially the men. But the principle applies to all of us is that your past not determine your future, no matter how messed up yesterday was does not have to control what you will tomorrow will be like that you have been to change your legacy about the lack of sleep you does not have to be the legacy you dispensed whether it is your immediate family. Whether it's your siblings or goals who come under influence, such as the case with the change and transformation that took place in the life of Asher, well, let's go to verse 40 because will see four things of Asher's impact and legacy that are to be true of every man and every head of household who is here all the verse 40 sales were the sons of Asher, head of the father's house had a house is only the whole what we got right so influence is for boys that they were able to take a responsible range in their own families.

The Bible teaches that the man is to be back. That leaves the man is the one responsible responsible. If you responsible if you get that crazy you responsible if the wife is all you responsible.

You may not be to blame. It may not be your fault, but had ship means responsibility.

You got even though you may not be the one responsible for Ship's responsibility ship also involves direct ship involves direction whether the president of the company. We have a church or whatever ship means you are a direction so that people know which way were going to be a means that I want to be in close proximity with God so that God can speak to me by his Holy Spirit give me direction so that those following me will have a place to go and what that means is that you're not following the crowd not picking up your direction from television, you're not picking your direction from social media because you're God's man picking up your cues from the second thing we find out about ashes sons is he calls the choice made me scream in the crop they were built guys somehow in this turnaround. He said my boys and I can be like everybody else about my boys are not going just run with the crowd on the raise up some excellent choice cream of the crop boys with one daughter raise them up to be the man that God has created them to be.

I'm not going to let them set. Let the boy said, and I will be just like everybody else may not talk about what my friends say if their friends are wrong when anybody because they will be excellent which we stand to pursue full social media like Twitter and Instagram let Facebook set my standard choice will be a divine standard that I that I give you that. I want to model before them that I want to teach them that I want to expose them to became choice carries a high integrity high standards and somebody was blinking right blinking right now you confuse and go south for the idea here is to craft the divine standard filter through we know we have many single parents, you have been given you.

We appreciate you we can never allow that to get middle for the kids if they decided that they now have abandoned bills to make responsibility to the kid so he wanted to raise them to be exposed to your boys to men of high standards. If they don't have one of the home leave them in the right way, not perfect, mid but middle moving right not medial UK sending of the church just can't be said in the school you can be sending you like the PTA meetings while you watch football. The television know you must be engaged and involved. My go through metal detector Oakland magnetometers five keys in my pocket back up to keep them sometimes. When I went to the park and it would be because of all magnetometers had to be set and beset in something with some real sensitive of is not a sensitive determine how easily we got a generation of young people's consciences.

Don't be. That's because nobody set up his head of the household job. The conscience so they gotta think through what they get ready to do something because you set them a call to set up they will be sent and used only don't want the public to the day when I go to school bathroom must be established.

The divine standard and walking them through the problems of that but you don't change the you you admit the standard with love and with compassion that two extremes out here. One is the be so compassionate.

There is no standard. The other extreme is to have the standard without showing compassion to compassionately move to meet the standard, but you don't talk down God to make full You live to God. And so yes there challenges. Yes, our kids are struggling. Now there will know about because they carry around from, which gives them access to the whole world and you can't control that you can control that.

You better be using every opportunity you can to set the standard so that there is a paper that goes on because you want choice men not mediocre.

Those who want to excel God's word and whatever areas God allows them to progress it.

Dr. Evans will tell us more about the importance of fighting for our kids. When he continues her message just a moment. First, as we been learning Dr. Evans says American men had been lied to and misled. It's time for the truth and you'll find it in his brand-new book kingdom men rising in it. 20 squares off against today's mangled view of manhood presents a whole new game plan for overcoming temptation recovering from past failures leading your family and building a legacy of faith and godly influence. It's time to man up God's way.

When you call her 24 hour resource Center at 1-800-800-3222 that's one 800 803 2220 repeat our contact information after part two of today's lesson. Here's Tony, the first thing it says about ashes sons. He speaks of the tickly says never mind them universally mighty men that were raised to be warriors, mighty men see enough to understand we are in spiritual warfare. We have a war. You now have to fight kids. You have to go see when many of us were raised in my generation, the baby boomer generation and prior to that the environment supported a Christian worldview.

The environment supported a Judeo-Christian ethic.

It wasn't perfect but it was respected so folks weren't Christians. They respected Christianity well right now you and I live in a house Christian era where the standards of right and wrong no longer so people are making up their own goals that they don't know what's right and not just send them out to play with anybody you watch what they're being taught in school that used to be taught creation as an option now admitting school that taught only evolution of the fact. So unless you watch that unless you patrolled unless we look into and they will be confused and come when they merge into adolescent and everything about it that getting that way. That is because there is a spiritual reason, that is, every culture abandons God all the stuff begins to explain. We got a walk but we gotta move God so he raised warriors you got to go to walk you got to fight for that which was right.

Then he says fourthly, he raised them to be mentors.

They were raising future king when you play checkers the whole gold crown. The goal is not to get knocked off the board goal is for another check to be put on top you king now you get to rule the segment of the board.

You get to move a lot for your whole scope of operation. He says that he raised his sons to raise princes now all of our boys need to know for Kings and we princes princes a king want to be the king in anticipation what they had to be raised as princes so that they would be qualified to be kings means you must speak into your children's lives.

Both the kings and queens to be.

You must speak into their lives, their potential because their prints prints not an ordinary kid princes the king and waiting.

They are to know even when God talks about us. He talked about how we are a royal priesthood, Jesus gives is this royal designation repot of a king gone.

We have a way to make the Bible times is always royal language says you are to speak only not just a kid, not just a boy. You already prints… I just got way to see when you know that you are prints not only affects what you think about you and affect how you evaluate anybody else who wants to relate to you because you don't want nobody messing with Joe thrown, he says they were meant to raise as princes. That is position for future kingship and so the question is what level of mentoring are we giving our kids and remember to the third generation are grandkids many a young man have been spiritually castrated because he is not been given a sense of his long-standing in the family, and most importantly with the Lord because there is no godly male figure who loves God loves them and give them a biblical worldview and spiritually imparts to them that they take all of God into all of life into all of their world. But the good news is that God can change your yesterday no matter how messed up and give you a different tomorrow. I know you have bad mix. You bet and rebound. I know that you just give yourself a name calling itself because you got some this function in your but the good news is he shows up in chapter 7 Chronicles a brand-new man, so your yesterday have to control your tomorrow is the end of and the number of them enrolled by genealogy for service in more was 26,000 Minuteman we start out with one man for son and one daughter, but by the time this man got through 26. It is legacy that are ready to go to war just gave me thinking about you. You got me thinking about the generations behind you. You got to build something on an army of men and women that women were in it because more boys will being born and so you got the build an army. The problem is Satan has been building his army while God's army of men shrink. So what God is looking for men who want to recover. Men want to get back the dignity that God created you with who want to fulfill the role that God has given you. Super Bowl XLIII.

Look at how a man can find the strength to stand up and start walking by faith right now, though he's back with his final story. There is a father went to his son one day. It is been a great boy.

I'm proud of you and I want to do anything you want me to do for you what you want the boy thought for a moment.

He said that it is what I want I want you to take me to the zoo. I want to go to. He says okay let's go to the zoo. He said that cannot bring a few friends that said that's fine.

He came back with 10 friends so he put a minivan and they all went to the zoo for two hours they went around looking at all the cages of the birds and reptiles and all that fun time at the time.

Natalie on her way out little boy looks up and he says daddy daddy what son that giving elephant ride showing up inside was an elephant man giving rides on his elephant. He said daddy please for rhyme. I want around. Similarly, we always had a long time is please please please please please please please let me ride this is okay let me see him as he went over to the guy and he says how much would override all he says is $20 arrive, we got to go.

The boy said please please please please please don't really want to write his elephant some 20,000 riders to test too much money to run elephant silk.

We got to go daddy, I don't think you understand daddy elephant I know was elephant son, but it's $20. Arrive elephant and MS just too much money. Daddy, I don't think you're paying attention.

Look at that daddy that daddy elephant elephant, but it costs too much to rat elephant dad. He don't think you make an don't think you're looking for an elephant that isn't Jonathan brothers is. This problem is so they know about the cost of your time about the cost of your energy problem is okay leading some men willing to pay the price of the next generation.
