Why Satan attacks children mercilessly

A FIERCE battle is raging as Satan tries to interfere and to destroy children’s destinies.


Satan is trying to thwart God’s mission, but God expects all children to radiate His light.


His mission was that through Adam and Eve, His government would prevail on earth. Genesis 1:28

God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful and multiply ,fill the earth and subdue it, rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” (NIV).


God intended that His kingdom and will would be brought to the earth through the children born out of Adam  who He created “in His own image and likeness.”


He  expects all parents to bring up Godly children according to Malachi 2:15

“Has not the one God made you? You belong to Him body and Spirit and what does the one God seek? Godly offspring so be on your guard and do not be unfaithful to the wife of your youth. “ (NIV).


If you manage to bring up a godly offspring you have managed to execute God’s will on earth.


While teaching parents on Deliverance for  Children at Homecare Spiritual Fellowship, pastor Nellie  said,  raising godly children is an obligation from God.


She said a generational problem, however, occurred  in Genesis 3:6

“When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband who was with her and he ate it.” (NIV).

God intervenes


Adam and Eve exterminated their image by trading with Satan  and ended up being  kicked out of the Garden of Eden, pastor Nellie said.


“In their sinful state, they  brought forth children- in their own likeness, who were as rebellious as they were, the first born turning  out to be murderer,” she explained.


She said, this is the reason “why the offspring have every inclination to evil.”


“It is not Satan who makes our children sinners, disobedient or rebellious, but they were born this way,” the pastor explained.


She said God, however, expects all parents and the children  to be blameless and pure in a crooked generation according to Philippians 2:15

” So that you may become blameless and pure children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation. Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky.” (NIV).


According to pastor Nellie, left unto themselves, the offspring cannot be “blameless” and “pure” and that is when  God intervenes.


New creation


The pastor says leading our children to Christ is the ultimate parental responsibility.


“They have to be changed from inside -out. Salvation makes this possible by giving the Holy Spirit a chance to start working in our children from inside out,” she explains.


She says when parents take up the role of leading their children to Christ, “it would bring forth a totally new creation.”


She explains that  God has appointed every child to be someone important in their lifetime,  Jeremiah 1:5

Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born I set you apart, I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (NIV).


It is God’s  will that everything is fulfilled to the letter of which was written in the  every ‘’child’s  books of destiny.”

Demonic attacks


Our children, unfortunately have  an adversary to oppose them.


Satan being fully aware  that God’s primary strategy on earth is to be achieved  through godly children  unleashes  demonic attacks to thwart His sacred plan.


The enemy, so has substantially made it his primary strategy to stop our children from being godly.


“He steers them towards depression, alcoholism and drugs, sexual immorality, crime and suicide,” pastor Nellie said.
