Dr. Tony Evans is evicting the devil is ultimately a father's responsibility means what it means to lead celebrating 40 years of faithfulness. This is the alternative Dr. Tony author, speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship Dallas, Texas, president of the alternative, more children are growing up without both parents in the home these days. Dr. Evans, as many of the issues we were experiencing in our society can be traced back to that problem. Let's join him as he talked about what we can do to change direction as written large everything that supposedly built on the foundation crumbles with it so we are no the devastation of family integration. Now when it's knowable not to have a nuclear family was created to be able to see one. It's not normal anymore along the sea husbands and wives, fathers and mothers ministries have to now, we reconstructed to deal with this reality that we have in place and we must deal with it while at the same time trying to get back to what God had in mind when living in the day of the notification of children when our children are raising parents rather than parents raising children. Reminds me of the lady who was in the grocery store. She had a little girl with her and she said very sternly. Suzanne stop Suzanne, did you hear what I said I said stop it Suzanne listen to me. I said well the proprietor of the store was quite impressed that he was seeing mother speaking in disciplinary terms. We came to the little girl in pattern one hand, and he said, so your name Suzanne said no my name Suzanne is better. I'm trying to control myself living in a day when younger and younger and younger children are in control what's happening downstream is because it has been a breakdown upstream.

That is because we have misunderstood mystifying the supply. The principle of the family and in particular the day.

The role of parents. The Bible says in Isaiah chapter 3 verses four and five says that was the deterioration of the culture as the children live in rebellion against the job want to now talk to you about raising kingdom kids.

If you have children, this will for what you do with them for the place you are now. If you don't have this. Will try to give you a framework for when you do have them or even the influence that you may have openings of the nephews you see in these verses. He says right in the fear of the Lord. Remember, and fill the earth with children, but why because man was created in the image of God. So the goal of having children in the replication of God, just the replication of it tells you why else because he tells you with birthrates that may mainly belong on the parents get their children live and how long they live well with you and you shall live long on the road. If you have the right relationship with California teenagers.

The sound of my voice. It is absolutely critical that you respond promptly to your parents so you live your days don't die before your time is also critical that you appropriately respond to your parents so that it will go with you. Your prayer life through govern your future because you are related to your parents. But that means parents be the kind of person they can relate to God because remember he broke the chain when you break the chain you invite and that's why we got home God, not on the moon shall not the parents. And so the devil is having a heyday. Because once you flip this what your true get twisted and turned it to be invited in attention and so many of us have one our family that we know about the evil one who makes himself in home which is why does World War III when the family is built on an ongoing basis is a curb on kingdom man. The Bible not come out in the culture talk about what you learn on television, which only say Bible raises the children not in the Bible is responsible for the children. Mother excluding mother already said in the first children, obey your parents ultimately response the bull I feel you only have one job when it comes to child rearing. You write me when he came to bring the bread. Whatever you want to fill in the gap but is responsible for bringing the children will wait to get all that's exactly what she should say the box if the man that you're not going to raise the kids properly. Going to church you pray with you on the work today, raising the kid a problem because many men have not been raised since all things parents should do, starting with the father for things for first of all, he says, do not provoke your children to anger translation be known as an intelligent not to disparage, don't provoke don't create an environment where you're creating an angry child created where you're creating an average child. Suddenly he says no to bring them up in the nurture Proverbs 22 six train up a child in the way you should go and when he is old he will not depart from it okay to come to church particularly man the reason you come the child if they hear God's word.

The problem is no job is to break it down so that they can get what you got in the way that they can grasp it will not the part from it that when you job they won't your job if they strike little real God the Holy Spirit to reel him back in a manger charge, maybe you hated when I go to college.

I'm never going back graduated. It came upon you that you were not able to shake my one day mom and right when I was growing up. You want to go to church. Do you want to go now charges its goals.

That was never an option that you ask. But maybe you're asking them not because you're asking you about your responsibility. Then he says, discipline them in the corrective procedures of the Lord.

You must break the child's will without crushing the child's spirit of the battle of wills which OSHA start with the terrible twos that will must be broken, but you must do it without crushing the spirit.

That's why the Bible combines discipline with love. It says you correct wow.

Loving them. Okay you correct wow loving that the purpose of the plan is not venting. That's why sometimes I need to be a gap between what they did and what you do because if you just react based on what they did Mike crush their will and their spirit across the spirit because it's gotta be combined with love what you do want to reshape that will that rebellion that they have exercise goes on to say, Proverbs 2915 Children Who Get Their Way will be a shame to get whatever they want whenever they want to temper tantrums start what you're doing is you're raising this child every time they don't get their way. They know no, you can now Proverbs 2970 correct, and he will bring you comfort, meaning if you don't correct them.

People bring you grief. I say this teenagers. That's when we really get it. Teenagers cussing the teenager is struggling between dependence and independence they want to be free, but they can afford to be. They want freedom yet, but I don't want to be told what to do. Be frustrated. You can disagree what you do is rebel. That's what you can do, at least not stating what you can do is rebel and be disrespectful to those first three words.

Honor your father and mother and father and mother. Even if you disagree with the father mother asked me to disobey God from a bank to some people says that you are to conform you establish the boundaries. Do you like football people the boundaries you played within the lines that you have some freedom effects within the lines.

I'll expand the boundaries but if you don't shrink the boundaries you want expanded shrinking boundaries, whether you control often rewards is okay if you do this you will be consistent with the housework and school workers want to give him one. But if you don't shrink your friend or whether you on only treat me respectfully and all okay but what you do now is rebel rebellion said I don't want to say I'll do what I want to know no no no no no no no no, I can continuously may rebel his mom and dad provided a phone call rebellion is unacceptable. Dr. Evans will come back with some specific steps parents can take to end the chaos continues her message just a moment.

We talk about somebody entering into those opportunity and is just going crazy. He lost his mind or her mind. This is ever rebellious to get on the control and they refused to control you bring them to be held six and now to look out of the same.

Now you will get this straight so you have a whole bunch of rebellion in Israel because rebellion was acceptable except you don't have to agree with you but you better teenagers your parents unless they're contradicting God because if you don't like short father to do something twice presented by my front porch 2101.

I'll like and not like to know how this would all for now like to think three people may decide is making funny thing about it is meant to begin Sunday think the fathers back to the taking of all the stocks so the father says amounted you managed to what you sow to make sure that there is no in the home unacceptable to me and my house is how we roll.

Finally, it says instruct them.

The conclusion for the instruct them, teach them to operate under divine guidelines so that when they leave. They still have the guidelines so that when you have been telling you what to do based on the guidelines Deuteronomy success. Teach them convincingly, consistently, creatively and comprehensively says you are to teach them was one of his church becomes her to hear God's word. But that's not the only reason you come the church to repeat what you heard, they should hear it over and over gift. Three. The one man should be the first ones in church on Sunday so that you can get all the information so that you can go home and pass to your own family because the man is supposed to be his family's past passed amendments over the past just told me that this is what I learned today is really been a Bible study and I haven't been in the seminary in the Bible college masses. The Greeks I got a Dr. the great, so I got all information and training to bring it back and be the replication of spiritual truth from a parental .9 conclusion my situation went to the big and grown left and I've already messed up. I can already see the negative for my fail parent that you can go back and reread. So if they've gone left what you do is you as God bring a win below them back.

"God may have to do something independently of what you do is you call me for no whatever little I can do now to bring us back together. I'm going to do but pray for you and maybe all you can do. But that's something to stop the crisis. We got to go back upstream. There were some young bull elephants and they were cotton up crazy in the in the jungle, just going crazy tearing down trees to start tearing down trees killing small animals.

The bull elephants had gone crazy trying to figure out what his herd of elephants was causing all this chaos in this particular area of the jungle. It was they were located and they notice something. There were no adult bull elephants. All the big adults had been killed ivory and all that. So there were no male bull elephant. Adult bull elephants. There so the baby bull elephants had lost them because there was no corralling, so they went and captured some elephant adults and transported them into the jungle where the baby bull elephants are gone crazy when the big C begins to me making a faster, became returned to the responsibility without children as kingdom that Dr. Evans will come back in a moment to wrap up today's program with the word of prayer.
