Satan is not just trying to silence the next generation. He is seeking to wipe it out, declaring an all-out war on our children.
They are being slaughtered in the womb. They are being kidnapped and sold into sex slavery. They are being raped and abused and neglected and used. They are being brainwashed by their teachers and bullied by their peers. They are lost and lonely, depressed and suicidal. Their innocence is being robbed and their security stolen.
Without exaggeration, we can say that no generation in American history has been subject to such a concerted, demonic attack. From the moment of conception, your life is at risk. Will you make it out of the womb, or will you be like the multiplied millions who have been cut down before they could breathe their first official breath?
If you are a black baby, you have less than a 75% chance of making it out of the womb alive. If you live in New York City, you have less than a 50% chance of making it out of the womb alive.
Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death for ages 10 to 24; the 2nd leading cause of death for college-age youth and children ages 12 to 18. More teenagers and young adults die from suicide than from cancer, heart disease, AIDS, birth defects, stroke, pneumonia, influenza, and chronic lung disease, COMBINED. Every day there is an average of over 3,703 attempts by children in grades 9 to 12 to take their lives.
In the next 24 hours in the U.S. 2,795 teenage girls will become pregnant, 15,006 teens will use drugs for the first time, 3,506 teens will run-a-way and 2 teens will be murdered, according to Amy Morin in her article The Truth About Troubled Teens.
During a one-year period in the U.S., 16% of children ages 14 to 17 had been sexually victimized. Over the course of their lifetime, 28% of U.S. children ages 14 to 17 had been sexually victimized. All children are most vulnerable to sexual abuse between the ages of 7 to 13.
Even more shocking, according to a 2003 National Institute of Justice report, 3 out of 4 adolescents who have been sexually assaulted were victimized by someone they knew. And in a major, government-sponsored report, among the eye-opening statistics shared was the fact that “one website on Tor hosted 1.3 million images depicting children subjected to violent sexual abuse.”
Focus on the incalculable damage done to 64% of young people ages 13–24, who actively seek out pornography online. Porn sites received more traffic in 2020 than Twitter, Instagram, Netflix, Zoom Pinterest, and LinkedIn and Twitter combined.
Recorded child sexual exploitation (porn) is one of the fastest growing online businesses. Over 624,000 child porn traders were discovered online in the U.S.
Is your heart bursting yet?
To every parent, educator, coach or mentor, to every big brother or sister, to every responsible adult or older teen, I ask: Isn’t it time to say, “Enough is enough!”? Isn’t it time to shout from the rooftops, “Not on my watch!”?
Even the effects of social media can be devastating for young people, as they literally become addicted to digital stimuli. Some of the negative side effects include depression, anxiety, sleep deprivation, and communication issues.
What, then, must we do to protect the most vulnerable ones in our society? How do we save them? It starts with each of us, with holy indignation, with broken hearts, with godly determination. It starts right here with every one of us doing what we can to turn this sickeningly destructive tide. Satan must take his hands off our children!
So, to every demonic spirit who is dead set on destroying our children, we say, “Take your hands off our kids! They belong to us, not to you, and you will not destroy their lives. We declare this together in Jesus’ name!” Then, in the sight of God, pledge yourself afresh to be the guardians of your children. Your words must be backed by your actions.
We must not downplay the urgency of the hour or underestimate the intensity of the battle. We must be tenacious in God if we are to win the war for our children.
