WASHINGTON (AP) - June 1988 - The labor force participation rate for new
mothers climbed to 50.8% last year from 49.8% in 1986, marking the first
time a majority of women reported they were working or actively seeking
employment within a year of giving birth. By comparison, only 31% of new
mothers were counted in the labor force in 1976, the first year the Census
Bureau sought to calculate this rate. For new mothers with college
degrees, the job rate was 63%, well above the 38% rate for those whose
education ended during high school. The increasing share of mothers
returning to jobs led to a total of 13.4 million two-worker families with
children last year, up from 8.3 million in 1976."
HOW TO CONQUER THE GUILT
Are you going to school or working with a joy while you have children at
home? Do you ever feel guilty for leaving your children with a baby
sitter or at a day care center? Ever feel like someone else is raising
your child? Well, for those who feel guilty about being outside the home
we have a sure-fire 100% method that will take care of all your guilt.
The solution is easy. The solution is called "repentance"!
If you are feeling guilty about working - good! You should feel guilty!
You're in SIN!
If you don't feel guilty - get that way. There should be a very heavy
sense of guilt resting on your shoulders right now; unless you're just
dead to the conviction by God's Spirit.
"And brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and
children will rise up against parents, and cause them to be put to
death." -Matthew 10:21
The reason that children will betray their parents is that parents first
betrayed their children. They betrayed their children to serve the god of
self. Parents had their careers to love. Christian parents had their
ministry in the Lord to do. Fathers and mothers demonstrated to their
children that serving themselves must come first. For they served the
gods of gold, silver, pleasure and self-fulfillment. With each passing
day the world and the worldly serve self more and more. The end result
will be that "brother" will "deliver up brother to death, and a father his
child; and children will rise up against parents, and cause them to be put
to death." All because the children were shown that to please self, no
matter who it affects, is the proper thing to do.
If you are a married mother and working away from home take notice of
God's command. If your church has a "Christian Day-Care Center", listen
up to God's command. For you are in direct disobedience to God! For GOD
says in Titus 2:3-5:
"You must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine. Likewise teach
older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or
addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the
younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self controlled,
to be BUSY AT HOME..."
Are you "busy at home"? Is this the "sound doctrine" and the "good
teaching" you and your church are teaching? If you're not obeying this by
the power of the Holy Spirit, you are in deep sin and wretched
disobedience to God! So cure your guilt by "godly sorrow" and repent
today, [2 Corinthians 7:8-11].
CHILDREN SACRIFICED TO IDOLS
Every day that a child is dropped off at the baby-sitter's, or the day
care center, is another day that your child is slowly drained of life.
You should be "busy at home" raising children for the Lord. For God says
he made your husband and you one flesh for a purpose. That purpose is:
"Has not the Lord made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And
why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring." -Malachi 2:15
God's intention was that you raise children up who would know and love
Him! God's plan is for mothers to be busy at home, raising children for
the Lord, being quiet spirited, full of good deeds and submissive to their
husbands, [Ephesians 5:22, 1 Peter 3:1-6, Titus 2:3-5, Colossians 5:22].
Instead, the children's "blood" is being sacrificed to idols of money,
pleasures, convenience and that "independent feeling". Ezekiel 16:35-38
"Therefore, you prostitute, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the
Sovereign Lord says: 'Because you poured out your wealth and exposed your
nakedness in your promiscuity with your lovers, and because of all your
detestable idols, and because you gave them your children's blood...I will
sentence you to the punishment of women who commit adultery and who shed
blood; I will bring on you the blood vengeance of my wrath and jealous
Women who delay marriage to get an education God calls prostitutes.
Married women who work outside the home pour out the life-blood of their
children and God says that He will judge you with "blood vengeance of my
wrath and jealous anger".
CHURCH DAY CARE CENTERS
God's anger burns against a church that is encouraging mothers to sin by
opening "Christian Day Care Centers". How deaf the hearts are to the
voice of the Holy Spirit. How opposed they are to the concerns of Jesus!
Because they worship themselves, even though they sing of Jesus, they
cannot hear the Holy Spirit says, "Close the doors to the day care centers
and open your hearts to my Holy Word!!" Make no mistake about it. Were
they a group of Christians listening to the Holy Spirit the day-care
center doors would be closed. For they would see and feel what the heart
of God feels and sees.
"Oh, that one of you would shut the temple doors, so that you would not
light useless fires on my altar! I am not pleased with you', says the
Lord Almighty." -Malachi 1:10
The same book that says God's plan is for us to raise "godly offspring" is
the very same book that says "close the temple doors". What a "useless
fire" your so called Christian Day-Care Center is. God is in no way
"please" with such works.
All that wonderful singing, fellowship and preaching are "useless fires"
unless there is obedience to God's Word. Unless there be a death to
self. All your self-righteous arguments and justifications will not avail
you mercy at the judgement seat of Christ. You may complain that "Some
women have to work for the money to survive because their husbands don't
earn enough." What an ugly statement that is about your church
fellowship. Use the money, time and prayer invested in a Christian Day-
Care center and meet the needs of those married working mothers so they
can stay home and raise children for the Lord! Be what the New Testament
Church was. Holy!
"And the congregation of those who believed were of one heart and soul;
and not one of them claimed that anything belonging to him was his own;
but all things were common property to them...For there was not a needy
person among them, for all who were owners of land or houses would sell
them and bring the proceeds of the sales, and lay them at the apostles
feet; and they would be distributed to each, as any had
need." -Acts 4:32-34
"And all those who had believed were together, and had all things in
common; and they began selling their property and possessions, and were
sharing them with all, as anyone might have need." -Acts 2:43-44
See how little dead to self your church is! It would not have even
crossed their mind to open up a wicked "Christian Day-Care Center".
Rather, their hearts would have done what was needed to meet the needs of
others. They would have done such with joy!
Woe to those churches that have day care centers! They will indeed
experience the jealous wrath of God. For they encourage married women to
work and be busy away from home. Your preacher's "whitewash" their deeds
and guilt [Ezekiel 13:10-16]. Do you not know that you cannot drink the
cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too? [1 Corinthians 10:20-33]
SPIRITUAL ABORTION CLINIC
Truly, the church is a marketplace today and no one feels any shame or
guilt for throwing their children on the fiery altar to the demon of self
and money, [Jeremiah 6:14-15]. You teach women to "make the most of
themselves in Jesus". You teach that satanic doctrine of "self worth" and
"good self-esteem". So mothers are encouraged to sacrifice their children
to idols of self and pleasure. Oh, how you condemn abortions but you
encourage and bless spiritual abortion!!!
In Russia mothers are forced to do we Christians volunteer to do. Satan
has little need to fight against such Christians, for he has already won.
And won while churches, ministers and Christians sing with self-
righteousness haughtiness that they serve the Lord and His Word. What a
rude awakening awaits such people.
"Put a trumpet to your lips! An eagle is over the house of the Lord
because the people have broken my covenant and rebelled against my law.
Israel cries out to me, 'O our God, we acknowledge you!'" -Hosea 8:1-2
It is no deep mystery that "children will betray their parents" for before
that can happen parents will have already betrayed their children.
WOMEN OF WORTH
"A wife of noble character is her husband's crown, but a disgraceful wife
is like decay in his bones." -Proverbs 12:4
Just as Proverbs 12:4 says, that when women no longer remain "noble" the
very supporting structure ("bones") are destroyed. It is little wonder
that even within the church the family is not even close to what it should
be. For what is considered blessed today is the new family that waits to
have children so that they can "get settled in" or "get financially
ahead". Or worse, the couple that waits to have children to do the work
of the Lord is what is considered blessed. You cannot serve self and
God. How much a need there is in truth to pick up the cross and seek the
will of the Lord. How rare it is to find a Christian woman who has the
heart of Jesus. That is, raising godly offspring to be given to God.
Rare, indeed, is the Christian woman who serves God with a fully
surrendered heart. Truly, godly men are crying with the Holy Spirit
"'Look', says the Teacher, 'This is what I have discovered:...I have found
one upright man among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them
Of course men must ask themselves if they really want a godly woman. Or
like Adam do they feed off the sins of their wives? Do the churches and
husbands like the extra income that these working mothers bring in? Do
the churches like the numbers these women ministers bring in because they
are fulfilling the "call of God" in their life, [1 Timothy 2:11-15]? How
often ministers and husbands feed off the sins of their wives. And as
long as it looks good they don't care, [Genesis 2:6]. We are a land full
of priests, ministers and seminars, yet disobedience to God's Word
abounds. It is as Hosea says,
"The more the priests increased, the more they sinned against me;...They
feed on the sins of my people and relish their wickedness." -Hosea 3:7-8
Again, the signs abound everywhere that a wife of noble character cannot
be found. Instead of men witnessing a "quiet and submissive" spirit among
Christian women today we hear that they are "bored" at home. How many
mothers say, "I will sure be glad when my child starts school again"?
Where is the wife who calls her husband "master" in her heart and life?
How little we see the Holy Spirit being able to produce a 1 Peter 3:5-6
spirit in the women of the church...
"For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God
used to make themselves beautiful. They were submissive to their own
husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her MASTER."
Instead of women dressing themselves in holy and quiet spirits we find the
church to be a place for a fashion show. Excessive make up, wearing
clothes that are like the world and the dressing of an independent spirit,
[1 Peter 3:3, 2 Corinthians 6:17, 1 Timothy 2:9-11]. We see little true
leadership among the men because they feed off the sin of their wives just
as Adam did.
Now, this is not some heavy law or legalism. Rather, it is the heart of
God that longs to bless His people. For you miss the godly joy Jesus can
bring because of disobedience. Let us remember, "that the Sabbath was
made for man, not man for the Sabbath." [Matthew 2:27]. That is, no one
is going to be so unloving to teach someone in the ghettos that they must
stay home and starve because it is against God's law for a married women
to work outside the home. Rather, the church will do everything in it's
power to meet the needs of such married mothers. For the church, like
God, desires godly offspring.
