The US census report shows that approximately 30 percent of all children born today are born out of wedlock. That is an alarming statistic; but in the black community, it is an epidemic, reaching close to 70 percent. I believe that God has ordained the family to be the basic building block of society. What is happening in today’s family is no accident. It is a calculated plan from Satan to overthrow God and be like the Most High.
One of the reasons Satan is so adamant against the family is that it is a direct reflection of God. After the fall, Adam named his wife Eve, which means mother of all living or life giver. God told Adam he would have to work by the sweat of his brow, which meant that he was a provider. In Genesis 3, Adam, the provider, and Eve, the life giver, sets the image of God in humanity. Even in their fallen state, they are God’s image through marriage. Marriage in the sight of God is a constant rebuke to Satan that he can never be the Most High. Marriage means one man and one woman. But it is the plan of Satan to distort and destroy the family. I also think that so many children are being born out of wedlock to escalate Satan’s plan to build an army. With our society suffering from the lack of discipline that comes from manhood, unruly children are poised to be taken by Satan at will. As the return of the Lord approaches, Satan’s time is limited. There is a calculated plan to condition men to enlist in Satan’s army.
