Wicked From A Young Age

We are all born into sin because of Adam and Eve. However, children are not accountable for their sins until they can fully understand the differences between right and wrong. The Bible is clear that people become wicked at an early age and I believe that this is because of the family structures that people are raised in. Some of these households are very toxic and lead many people to make lifelong terrible decisions. Many of these teens pursue gangs, the LGBTQ community, drugs, porn, alcohol, sex outside of marriage, and many other sinful things. Some crimes would even land a person in jail, and with God, His wrath. Among these people are those who turn to Christ, and others who fight against God and His people. Those who continue to defy God in their dealings with men, God’s wrath is upon them. David wrote about this and said, “the wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear; Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.” (Psalm 58:3-5)

Pray for those who are against God. An example of people like this is transgenders, of which many also go through reassignment surgery. This is before guilt sits in and now they cannot be changed back. Thankfully, God sees past the outside appearance and upon the heart. So if people repent of their sins, they are freely forgiven. We can be a vile sinner in the sight of God, but the moment we come to Jesus in our confessions His mercy is for us. David wrote, “before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath. the righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.” (Psalm 58:9-11) Here we learn about God’s vengeance upon the wicked. Venereal diseases are the outcome of sinning against God. They come from sexual activity outside of marriage including multiple sex partners, especially homosexual partners. In death, the wicked go to hell. This is why we pray for anyone that is without God now. Amen.

Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray for people who are on the wrong path now, and also angry with You God. These people don’t know what they are doing, or the mess they are in. I have family and coworkers like this. I have seen many people, Lord, who have said they want to kill me. That if I said anything else about You, Jesus, they would cause me much bodily harm. Just looking into their eyes I could see their anger and hatred. This had been piling up all those many years. Even this summer, God, You put on my heart a desire to reach those of the LGBTQ community. And so I went as You asked me to, to each one of the days of their festival + parade. Most of the people did not like my sign or the things I had to share with them, but few exceptions. Lord, thank You for bringing this older lady on my path. We hugged many times, as I helped her know about Your great love, God, and even shared numbers. Thank You for the woman that came out of the festival just to give me a hug, saying she was so grateful to see how peaceful and respectful I was. Thank You, Jesus, for helping me reach the lost. I love You, Lord. Amen.
