Bible Teachings For Parents And Children

To all the dear and loving parents out there: Take a long and hard look to what’s going on in our society and the world today. What do you see and hear? Without a doubt, it is obvious that our families, our childbearing and our child-rearing are in so much pressure and threat from our common adversary, Satan the devil, and his army of deceitful cohorts (many of our political and religious leaders and many confused judges as well)—to begin to destroy the family by many of their vile rulings and false teachings based on their man-made beliefs and not of the heavenly principles from Heavenly Father Yahweh! Satan–as the present God of this world (2 Corinthians 4:4) and as the prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2), is in charge of this earth’s atmosphere, its media, its entertainment and the many foul and perverted attitudes that are directly or indirectly imparted by the above powerful and influential individuals of our nation and government. In contrast, when the members of a family follow Almighty Yahweh’s instructions, they avoid trouble and many problems. In today’s message we are going to teach you what Yahweh expects from parents and children. As always, we will ask for the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit to share with you the Bible teachings for parents and children. Read the amazing Bible answers on this vital topic.

To start with, our Heavenly Father Yahweh Himself summarized in the Bible how and what heavenly parenting is when He said: “You shall love Yahweh your Elohim with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your might. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart; you shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes” (Deuteronomy 6:5-8). Do you know what this means?¬†Almighty Yahweh created the family and He wants your family to be holy at this present age and to become sacred members of His Spirit Family in the future! The called-out genuine Christians (those who truly obey Heavenly Father Yahweh) are destined to become “kings and priests to our Elohim; and we shall reign on the earth” (Revelation 5:10). Yes, true Christians would replace Satan who is now the present “ruler” of this world (John 14:30; 16:11). So, we become the ultimate threat to Satan’s continued rule over all the earth. Satan doesn’t like that because he wants to stay in power here forever!

Meanwhile, what does Almighty Yahweh expects from parents? Parents are told to spend as much time as possible with their children. Your children need you, and more than anything else, they need you to teach them about Heavenly Father Yahweh! (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). Satan’s world is becoming more and more wicked, and there are some people who may want to harm our children, even sexually abuse them and kill them. Some parents find it difficult to talk about this subject. But parents need to warn their children about such people and teach them how to avoid them. The apostle Peter said parents must protect their children. “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). Parents have the responsibility to teach their children how to behave. How can you teach your children about this? Your children need training, but correction should never be cruel or harsh. “…But I will correct you in justice, and will not let you go altogether unpunished (Jeremiah 30:11). So never discipline your children when you are angry. You do not want your words to be like “the stabs of a sword” and hurt them (Proverbs 12:18). Parents, teach your children to understand why they need to be obedient. “And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of Yahweh (Ephesians 6:4). Parents should not be hesitant nor afraid to train their children to do good things. The Bible says: “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). Our Holy and Eternal Creator clearly said this: “…Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but grievous; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it” (Hebrews 12:9-11).

And for the children, what does the Heavenly Father expects from you? First of all, understand that the Savior of mankind, Yahshua Messiah, always obeyed His Father (Yahweh) even when it was not easy. Notice what Yahshua said: “Father, if it is Your will, remove this cup from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours be done” (Luke 22:42). Again, Savior Yahshua said: “…but as My Father taught Me, I speak these things…for I always do those things that please Him” (John 8:28-29). What does this means for the children? This plainly means Heavenly Father Yahweh also expects children to obey their parents (Ephesians 6:1-3). Children, even if you feel that is it hard for you to obey your parents, remember that when you are obedient to the good wishes and good teachings of your parents, they and your Father in heaven Yahweh are pleased with you (Proverbs 1:8; 6:20; 23:22-25). Sons and daughters, listen, we have a secret to tell you. Do you know that being obedient to your parents means you’ll have long-life on earth as promised by the Creator Yahweh? Yes, Yahweh said this clearly in both Old and New Testament of the Bible! “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which Yahweh your Elohim is giving you” (Exodus 20:12). “Honor your father and mother, which is the first commandment with a promise: that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth” (Ephesians 6:2-3). But always remember that Satan the devil and his army of spirit demons can use your friends and other young people to tempt you to do what is wrong. They know that this pressure can be very hard to resist. If your friends do not love Almighty Yahweh, they may tempt you to do a thing or some things that Yahweh hates, which would cause a lot of pain to you, to your family, and to Yahweh Himself. The bad behaviors they may influence your young minds and your fragile thoughts might include the use of bad drugs, pornography, stealing, gambling, youth sex, telling a lie, embracing homosexuality and abortion, bullying other kids, believing in gay or lesbian relationship, practicing same-sex marriage, violence, hating others, even killing people! Children, do not do or try to imitate these abominable acts! Yahweh doesn’t like these things and He will never approve of such behaviors ever! People who want you to believe in these unholy things are not your real friends. They are fake friends! Why? Because true friends won’t teach you to commit sin by doing bad things!

In closing, the Bible tells us that being good parents is a very challenging responsibility that helps us prepare for being part of Heavenly Father Yahweh’s eternal family in His coming Kingdom! Bringing up children from helpless tots to responsible, morally upright adults is perhaps the greatest responsibility we can have in this life, and it can bring great rewards. For parents, the blessing for doing so means, parents become spiritually mature as they struggle with themselves to the challenges of raising heavenly-like children in this perverse generation and in an unheavenly world that we all live in today. For children, the Bible tells us that children are wonderful gifts, truly blessings from Almighty Yahweh (Psalms 127:3) Yet these fragile children need proper guidance and good instruction on how to live the right way in this life. They each need that special one-on-one care and teaching that only a loving and responsible parents can give. Remember that each person in the family can make mistakes, so be humble and ask one another for forgiveness. And yes, the Bible contains Yahweh’s guidance for every person in the family. We hope and pray this true and faithful message on Bible teachings for parents and children helps you to become genuinely wonderful parents, and truly awesome sons and daughters in the eyes of our Heavenly Father Yahweh. Please consider sharing this humble website and this message to your family, friends and neighbors that you really care about. May Almighty Yahweh and His Savior Son Yahshua bless you for doing so. Greetings of love and peace, especially to all our brethren in faith. Shalom, Halleluyah!
