PART TWO- THE FIVE JOURNEYS OF MANHOOD
"It is not how a man lives his life that defines him. It is how he ends his life"
J. Vernon McGee
Bible men whose lives ended sadly were seldom failures throughout their whole lifetime. The stigma of failure is almost always found at the end of their life. Billy Graham started out in 1938 preaching the Gospel soundly. He ended his life claming Buddhists and Atheists are going to be saved because God is impressed with their sincerity. Never exalt a man until he is dead.
There are five journeys in a man's life. Every man must go through these phases if he wants a completely manly fulfillment to his life. Some men fail to finish the journeys of manhood, and they are known as a failure, a sissy, or a criminal. Here are the five journeys:
A man is conceived as female and then develops a "Y" chromosome. During the first nine months, a man is very close to his mother, the man is born, and then his mother and other women take care of him for a couple of years. He cries easily, he demands to be fed, and he generally craves female attention. This is normal, and even Jesus passed through this first male journey.
When you find a man who has never left his first journey, he is always feminized and reluctant to move on to manhood. He has no dreams he got from hearing manly men tell stories about life. And, he will soon become the friend of queers. This journey then ends in a lifetime of rabid sodomy and lust.
Daddy, you need to step in early and hold that baby boy, bathe him, and even change his diaper. And, you need to tell him stories about heroes and bravery, as well as read to him from the Bible about manly men. If you let Mommy and the ladies be the only ones to cuddle him until he is six of seven, plan on handing him one day to the faggots in the Castro District of San Francisco.
Here are some poems and songs I told my boys, and they loved them. In fact, my daughters did also.
GREAT AMERICAN COWBOY Ain't no such thing as a great American sissy.
My kids heard the story about how their great grandpa failed at sheep ranching in Colorado, took his family and moved to Los Angeles where he worked hard and survived. They heard about how their other great grandpa caught a big shark off of the peer in Corpus Cristi, Texas where he owned a hamburger stand. They heard about how their great uncle, Harry Castle, rescued a man from being killed by a bear. Every boy needs to hear lots of man stories, the sad ones, and the heroic ones. And, little sister needs to hear those stories so that she starts forming an idea of what kind of man she wants for a husband.
And, Mommy, a word to you. When the little guy wails for Daddy when you try to cuddle him, your heart should leap for joy. This kid will one day be a real man. His instincts for the touch, and the voice, of a man are developing early, and you should encourage that. And, please, start that little boy on trucks and cars and tools from day one. Do not panic if you catch him playing dolls with his sister, but make sure that is never the main event. It is a lot safer to let your daughter play cops and robbers with the boys than for your son to play "house" with the girls. Or, to put it another way, women are willing to do men's work a lot easier than for men to do women's work. Open a lingerie shop, and see if you can hire a man to be a salesman, that is, a man who is not a queer.
So, now we are seven, and we are obsessed with big trucks, toy soldiers, road construction in the back yard, and Elijah slaughtering 400 prophets of Baal. It is time for a man's second journey.
SIX YEARS OLD WITH MANLY INSTINCTS ALREADY
Does you son know that he needs to watch out for other people?
At about age six a boy starts seeing himself as a man coming up. He starts hanging out with his Daddy, and he craves attention from men. Grandpa becomes his hero, and if grandpa is a manly man in his Fifth Journey of manhood, the boy has a great mentor to begin learning manly skills. This journey is marked by the boy yelling, "Hey, look at this," after which, he tries to do something macho and manly, like climb a tree. A girl who climbs trees will be called a Tom boy because trees are meant, like Mount Everest, to be conquered by men. Girls who do things boys do are not destined to be lesbians, but when they reach puberty they abandon their boyish interests.
My Dad pastored a rural church on the Canadian River in Oklahoma. Every couple of days he walked to the general store and sat on the porch with the local men and talked man talk. I was six years old, and I decided I needed to go with Dad and sit with the men. He told me I could come with him if I could keep up. Dad did not slow his pace, though it may have just seemed that way, so I had to hustle along to keep up with him. The first instinct of a boy is to keep up with the men. Later in life, keeping up will determine if the young man keeps his job or not. I really felt important when we walked home from the store. I was only six, but going on 25 for sure.
The manly young man almost totally lacks any tender heartedness toward children, and he has become obsessed with finding a lady to court and share his life. He may have learned to be a gentleman if he spends his second journey in the company of gentlemen. But, in modern American life, most young men are childish about how to treat women until their Third Journey. At the end of his Second Journey, a young man should be eager to launch out into a manly vocation and prove he can pull his own weight in life, plus a little of yours. A manly Dad will have trained this into the boy. He will have had his first news paper route, and he is now working at McDonalds flipping hamburgers and dreaming of going to college and getting an MBA so he can manage something one day down the road.
The boy's Second Journey lasts until about age 18, at which point he has become extremely manly in his self-image. He will be lifting weights, and his heroes will be football players and truck drivers. A boy who is still sitting for hours playing with toys, especially game playing on a computer, and a boy who still hangs out with his mother and sisters, has been feminized, and there is little hope of him becoming a manly man unless Mommy bluntly hands him off to Daddy.
At the end of his Second Journey in life a young man does what the Apostle Paul said he did:
1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
Samson was a man who refused to put away childish things. Oh, he was a warrior, and he delivered Israel from many Philistines. But, Samson refused to submit to the law of God, and he refused to teach other men to be warriors. Samson never lead men to battle.
Judges 13:24 And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the LORD blessed him.
25 And the Spirit of the LORD began to move him at times in the camp of Dan between Zorah and Eshtaol.
Samson finished his First Journey well and was moved by he Spirit of God in a public way. The next verse in the Bible then tells us Samson went to the camp of the Philistines, the heathen pagan enemy of Israel, and found him a lady to hustle. Samson's Daddy did not approve, but God in his mercy allowed Samson to follow his selfish path so that Samson could do battle against the Philistines. Samson then killed a lion, found a beehive in it later, and served his parents honey touched by a dead animal, a serious breach of Moses' Law. Samson later made a joke of his sin by using it as a riddle to mock the Philistines. Samson's experience with his heathen wife, and his battles against the Philistines, were mixed with pride and sin. He had finished the First and Second Journeys, but he got stuck there. Samson finally went to a whore of the Philistines, and she seduced him and arranged for his hair to be cut off. God lifted his protection of this rebel during his Second life Journey into manhood. Samson ended up working as a slave to the Philistines.
Pastor, do you have a young fellow you refer to as a "preacher boy?" Did this young immature boy walk the aisle in an invitation and claim that God was calling him to preach? And, you have let him "preach" in the pulpit already at age twelve, right? You, sir, are a fool. Jesus did not start his ministry until he was thirty years of age. The story of Jesus having a discussion with the doctors in the Temple is NOT Jesus preaching or starting his ministry. He went home after three days and finished growing up. Stop that stupid vanity that gives you some cheap rush..... that is, the exalting of immature young men before they have learned submission and how to be manly among men. There is nothing more revolting than a twelve year old child, in the pulpit, waving a King James Bible in the air, and scolding aged men for not being zealous enough for God.
To Young Men on Journey Two
There are steps you can take to cleanse yourself of sissy ideas given to you by society, schools, your church, and possibly even your parents:
1. Political correctness-
This article is dealing with the feminization of men. One of the tools of feminists, their most powerful tool to threaten and castrate men, is political correctness. The feminazis will attack men in particular for any infraction of the PC code. Any man who calls a lady fat, a lady who IS fat, is more than a PC violator. They are ASSUMED into the category also of anti-gay, misogynist, and racist. Why? Answer: Because all those categories are qualities of one group..... White males. Oddly, Black males are now feeling the sting of the PC nannies, and they too are accused of being racist. I know, it is very confusing because some of these associations just don't rationally work. With propaganda, reason is out the window. The emphasis is on the doctrinaire message which may be a total lie and irrational. Defeating and humiliating White race men is the goal.
Never apologize for being male. When a teacher or preacher starts talking about how badly women are treated, glare at the teacher, and rebuke the preacher. If you are asked for an opinion, verbally or on an exam, make a statement like this. "I am a male, and I do not need to decide when or how any woman is being treated. I treat real ladies with consideration, and I ignore feminists. And, any woman who does not like that is irrelevant."
When someone starts talking about people as the enemy of Mother earth, or when they tell you something about your alleged carbon footprint, here is a suggestion. "My footprint is my business unless I get something on my shoe that would mess up your carpet. At that point, I will ignore you and walk away."
Who is offended in a political correctness confrontation? The nag is the one who is offended. If you speak to a gay person and call him "gay," he will not be offended. The one offended is the bystander who has a new nicer word for "gay" which you, and probably the gay person, never heard of. So, the intruder has to establish an offense based on THEIR OWN external judgment. When this happens, it is important to slap the nag or nanny soundly in verbal language that IS offensive and rough. They need to understand that you will not be made a victim of PC insanity. GREAT VIDEO ON PC TERRORISM
Political Correctness has been round for over 80 years. VIDEO BY THE FREE CONGRESS FOUNDATION
Political Correctness is thus really "cultural terrorism," and the terrorists are nearly all feminists. When you slap down a feminazi you are winning one small battle in the war to save sanity in the culture. And, you must not pull punches. Short of physical assault, anything you can do to make a public fool of a feminazi will always be approved by someone standing nearby. The vast majority of the population, especially real men and women, hate the PC terrorists. The problem is, most people will not take a stand for sane cultural and Bible based standards.
Shunning is the key to dealing with PC cops in society. Understand this..... there are no official enforcers of PC speech. Everyone who nags you about your vocabulary is a self-appointed tyrant. Tell them to shove off, or simply ignore them. One method to do this is to demand they prove how they have the lawful authority to correct you or anyone else. Offer to call 911 and call the Police so that the PC nag can file a complaint against you. This will shut them up at once because the police do not do this, and the nag knows it. Never walk away without mocking the PC nag and laughing at them.
EXAMPLE: The Lord is your example:
Psalms 2:1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
The PC mob have certainly set themselves against reasonable social activity. Thus, you do well to laugh at PC nagging by the creeps. Use derision, which means mock them. And, feel free to vex them, that is, make them enraged. They need to learn that they are not in charge. And, they need to learn that they are the scum of the earth. The worse you make them feel, and the greater fool you make of them before others, the sooner they will shut up and move on.
Here is how to become a politically correct nagging nanny girlie man. This is priceless:
But, here is how to slap down a feminazi and meet the masses with manly answers:
2. A competitive spirit
During your Second Journey of manhood you are learning how to relate to other men. By the end of this journey you should have seen some intense competition. This could be in sports, school, or even in spiritual things. You needed that competition.
Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
The day better come soon when you realize that this competitive nature in you needs to be used for a good purpose. That purpose is to sharpen your friends, not just beat them shooting baskets. A man who is ready for his Third Journey has learned to purposely miss a few shots so that a younger kid can beat him. Then, a godly man does not go around and quietly tell his other friends he blew the game on purpose. This is sure to humiliate the kid you gave way to if he hears you blew it on purpose. A godly man lets everyone believe the kid beat him.
I had a friend in boarding school in Africa who played chess with me. Occasionally, I beat him. Years later, I realized he was way too good to let me beat him accidentally. I realized he had let me win to give me a feeling of accomplishment. I loved the guy in Christ for doing that. He had learned not to let competition destroy his Christian commitment. If you want to win a game of chess, look me up. I have not played for probably twenty years, and you might even get to pull of a "fool's mate."
Jesus never pitted his disciples one against the other in competition. The Apostle Paul taught that we all receive a crown from God if we run the race set before us.
2 Timothy 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
Competition is not to be part of the Christian life. You may find a gross violation in your own pastor. Many pastors become very competitive, trying to beat some other nearby pastor at winning souls and getting the attendance up. He may even steal sheep from other churches of like faith in the area. While competition is a fact of life with the ungodly world, and while you may even need to be competitive to survive in the workplace, a competitive spirit with other believers is wicked in a Bible believer.
Having dealt with the evil use of competition, understand that you are in fierce competition with Satan at every turn. Satan wants all your unsaved friends and acquaintances to go to Hell. As a faithful servant of Christ, you want them to hear the Gospel and believe in Jesus Christ. This is not just a fierce competition..... it is war.
During this Second Journey to manhood you will soon learn that you are at war with Satan and his devils. Every time you seek to glorify God in some way, you may find a devil possessed person standing in the way and making trouble. Your warfare is not something new. The war against God and his people started in the Garden of Eden when Satan attacked Adam and Eve and caused them to fall in sin. That is also Satan's plan for you. And, this kind of competition will never end until you die and go to be with Christ.
How does the Bible believer win battles in this endless warfare?
Psalms 119:9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
The Word of God is your war manual. In the Bible you see instructions in Christian victory, but even more importantly, God did not hide the war from you. The Bible, unlike any other religious book, tells stories of both victory and defeat of the people of God. God let's you read about how good warriors fell in battle for all sorts of reasons. King David fell into adultery. King Saul fell into evil hatred. Demos, a friend of Paul, abandoned the work of Christ and went back to the world.
Finally, be merciful. Showing mercy to people who mess up is not feminine. It is masculine. A fellow from Nazareth was once confronted by some men who had caught a woman in adultery. They took her to this fellow and asked him what to do with her, stone her by Moses law? The fellow, by stealth, caused the mob of men to flee, and he then asked the woman who was there left to condemn her. She answered, "No man, Lord." Unbeknown to her, she lied. The author of the Law of Moses was standing right in front of her..... Jesus Christ. He was the ultimate enforcer, and he could stone her if he wanted to apply the ultimate penalty. His answer, "Neither do I condemn thee, go and sin no more."
You don't always have to be right, and the penalty for breaking the rules does not always have to be enforced. I am talking about when you have the authority to be the enforcer.
Some men learn the Bible well, and they use it like a hammer. They look for violators of the Word of God, and they see them as nails they have to smash. Never let that be you. Also, sir, never let a preacher make a bully jerk legalizer out of you, especially if he is a Fundamental Baptist.
3. Your view of Women
The Apostle Paul told husbands how to treat their wives. You need to start practicing this now so that you are worthy to have the wife God is getting ready for you.
1 Peter 3:7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.
Ladies and girls need to be known. That means you need to listen when they talk. Listen for their feelings. You never know when the lady you are talking to may one day be your wife or mother in law. Do you want them to be a stranger to you on your wedding night? If not, LISTEN to them, you wise acre!
God made women to be more emotional than you are. So, God wants you to feel you need to know how women think and function socially and emotionally. What they tell you will help you determine whether they need affection, defending, teaching, or correcting. A real man solves his wife's problems. Start practicing on your Mom, sisters, and Christian girls. And, I am not talking about being a shrink. A lady in the church dropped her cell phone, and it will not work now. Take her to the cell phone store and help her through the transition, making sure they don't sell her something she cannot understand. A girl is crying. Ask her if you can help, and pray with her.
Learn to honor godly girls and ladies, starting with your Mom and sisters. They are the weaker vessel. Be always ready to defend a lady. A feminazi, especially lesbians, when defended or helped, hates the man who helped her. Don't bother to help them unless it is a life and death situation. Then, do not expect to be thanked. A real man does the right thing even when no one notices. A man of God does the right thing even when the person he is helping is a filthy lesbian.
Once God gives you a good wife, make a covenant to God and her that you will be even more of a gentleman with her as the years go by. Never slack off in your zeal to make you wife feel good about being with you. There is nothing more pitiful than a Wednesday evening prayer meeting praying that Jack will come home to his wife.
2 Timothy 2:22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
When you are tempted by sexual lust, such as porn, do a random act of charity to someone. When you find your mind totally occupied with getting some game or technology gadget, the same solution applies- charity. You see, charity turns your zeal from your groin to someone else's needs. This shift in mental action is what makes you useful to God as well.
Beware of the company of people you know will be giving themselves up to open lust. Once you are in such a compromised situation, it is very hard to escape.
You may feel like you have lost it and you are too far gone to get back to a victorious life. This is because you have degraded your God-given conscience.
Titus 1:15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
You started out, after you were born again, listening to your conscience which God renewed. But, along the way you lost your zeal to walk closely with God. You stopped reading the Bible. The Word of God strengthens your conscience, and a real man reads the Word of God regularly to keep his conscience healthy. If you want the power to resist youthful lust, you will have to get back to reading your Bible regularly. The preacher cannot preach you to victory in two or three sermons a week. YOU are the man, and a real man stays in the Word of God.
5. What do you live for?
Do you have the notion that you deserve certain things and rights? Do you sometimes feel that other people are not being fair with you? Get over it, friend. No one owes you anything in this life. What good things and considerations you get from God, and from other people, are things you did not deserve. And, contrary to what the Word of Faith heretics tell you, you cannot speak magic words and force God to give you toys, money, or healing.
If someone cheats you, ask them to make it right. If they refuse, shuck them off and get on with your life. But, you are an idiot to get cheated twice by the same person. Also, never give place to revenge. God claims that right.
Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
If you are a Bible believer, God told you what to live for.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
14 For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
As a man, you are to fear God and do the things you are told to do in the Word of God. You need to learn that you will one day give an account to God for every act you do and every thought you think. What does this imply? Answer: Guard your mind from wandering into lust and fantasies that are foolish dead ends. Ask God to show you any way in which your actions are a disgrace to him. What other people think of your zeal and life is totally pointless if you are approved by God.
And finally, if you live a godly life there will be older adults who will flatter you to your face and to other people. Tell these adults politely to stop flattering you. Flattery is one of the most deadly destroyers of young men. It ALWAYS leads to pride and conceit.
Suggestion: Every day, ask God to give you at least one opportunity to show yourself to be manly. This is not always necessarily macho stuff. God may lead you to cross paths with an older feeble lady carrying her groceries to her car. A real man asks to carry them and loads them in the car.
In other words, rather than people owing you favors, you, in thanks to Christ for his unspeakable gift of salvation to you, owe other people favors.
Finally, I ask you to consider the tyranny of technology.
When the radio became available to most Americans in the 1930s, many pastors cried out against it. They saw in the radio the potential to spread evil ideas and profane human values throughout the whole society quickly. We soon learned that both good and evil came from the radio. Then, the Television came along, and the same thing happened. Finally, the computer age hit us broadside, and through it good and evil thrive beyond imagination.
With each advancement of technology, the old ways and traditions of society have been assaulted, and evil seems to prevail more than good today. There is no one able to tell this technology monster what it should and should not do. The philosophy of the inventors and manufacturers is, "If we can do it, we should do it."
As I wrote this article, two different US Navy destroyers collided with huge cargo ships in the Pacific Ocean. Both ships appeared to have been steered into a perfect position to be horribly damaged. The US Navy and Government refuses to talk about what happened. It looks very much like an enemy hacked the navigational systems and virtually guided the crew to sail the ship directly into the other ships. The US Navy sailed into the Black Sea recently to let the Russians know the US is big and powerful. All the ships, once in the Black Sea, got indications from their navigational equipment that the whole fleet was 200 miles inland in Russia. Technology has become the last frontier of global warfare.
And, technology has become a god to modern minds. They trust technology to answer all of life's issues, whether medical, intellectual, vocational, or for amusement. These are the people who approach an intersection, and the light turns green. They step on the gas and rage on through the intersection at 60 MPH as if no one will ever run a red light and hit them. They also buy the latest techy toys as soon as they can get at them. They believe these toys will make life fulfilled and satisfying. But, they are really slaves to their techy toys, and they are rapidly abandoning their social skills and their ethical sense of right and wrong. The techy toys are even worse..... they are causing brain damage and cancer. The technology god is not as benign as it was when we all played on a Commodore 64.
So, what kind of man lets technology take over his life? Answer: A jack ass who brays until he is given a bale of hay.
Romans 8:5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Do you live with the intention to seek to be totally under the control of the Spirit of God? If so, you will not allow technology to define you or your world. I can promise you, if you bow to the god of technology, you will become extremely lonely and self possessed. You will be easy prey for a feminist to control, and you will marry a butch who bullies you into submission.
6. Who are you to God, your parents, other Christians, and to the world?
Who are you to God?
The answer is in topic 5 above. But, I want you to think about the men in the Bible you have learned about. The men whom God approved of were a) Problem solvers, b) Leaders, c) Warriors, and d) Prophets or Preachers. Here is Jesus solving a problem:
Luke 8:26 And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee.
27 And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city a certain man, which had devils long time, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs.
28 When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not.
29 (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.)
30 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him.
31 And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep.
32 And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them.
33 Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked.
34 When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and went and told it in the city and in the country.
35 Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, and found the man, out of whom the devils were departed, sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.
36 They also which saw it told them by what means he that was possessed of the devils was healed.
37 Then the whole multitude of the country of the Gadarenes round about besought him to depart from them; for they were taken with great fear: and he went up into the ship, and returned back again.
There will be times in your life when people will have problems. The problems that the world cannot solve or lift from people are the ones Satan has imposed on them. These problems keep the victim in bondage to Satan. God has only one person in this world who can respond to the need like Jesus did on that hillside long ago..... YOU.
Jesus did not hang around long after his resurrection. He knew that his Father had called him to return to Heaven, and so Jesus empowered his followers to do the same works that he did in Galilee.
John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
To God, you are the one who will do the things Jesus did. You are in your Second Journey of manhood. Are you becoming so much like Jesus that God can use you to do these great works during your coming Third Journey?
Who are you to other Christians?
Do fellow Christians look forward to your arrival? Are you the man who always holds the door for a lady? Do you dress in a way that makes the occasion seem even more of a blessing to the saints, or do you look like a fugitive from a baboon convention? Do the girls get quiet when you come around and wait to see what you will say, or do they go flirty and fluffy like idiots? What do you inspire in other Christians? Does your pastor ever come to you and say, "Bill, I have something I think you can solve for me"? Can you sit next to a little kid and find ways to make him smile and like you? Do the older women glow when you walk by? All of these things are accomplished by your being very consistent in your personal walk with the Lord Jesus and godly men. You will have to pass up the company of young men who are allegedly having fun, but their fun makes you behave like a child again instead of man.
Luke 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
Take a moment to ask yourself if you are growing in favor with God and man.
Who are you to your parents?
A young man on the farm is worth about $200,000 to his father as he is growing up. This is because he becomes a part of the work force as he matures in his Second Journey into manhood. A young man in the city, where you probably live, is a net loss to his parents. This is because his Dad works in Real Estate or technology or some other profession far from home. There is no way his son can enhance his profession and add value.
So, what are you going to do to change this fact of sociology? A manly young man will look for ways to save his Dad expenses. Anytime you can do something that a plumber or commercial repairman would be called to do, you save you Dad expenses, and it gets fixed much sooner. The faucet is busted. Go on Google, watch some videos on faucet repair, and tell you Dad to buy a new faucet on his way home from work. You want to fix it.
The toaster dies. Take it to the garage, dismantle it, and see if you can improvise a repair. Google and YouTube to the rescue again. The back yard looks really boring. Offer to make a flower or vegetable bed around the fence. How about a raised garden bed? Remember, no one owes you anything. Quite the opposite:
Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
And, your acts of kindness and manly problem solving are masterful acts of love to your parents.
Who are you to the world?
Answer: You are a freak.
Titus 2:14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
Peculiar here means special, like a collectable, something well worth the price of buying it. I had a 1977 Lincoln Town Car I bought at a bargain price in the 1990s. It went to Tennessee with us, and I touched it up one day and detailed it. I then drove it to the local gas station to fill up. As I pulled up two hill Billies tumbled out of a pick up truck and came over to admire my Lincoln. They were in awe of it. THAT was a peculiar automobile, but it was also a bit of a freak in Tennessee. People there avoided those old cars that took up two thirds of the road.
You are both precious, and you are a freak. To God, you are precious, and to humanity, you are a freak. That is exactly the way it is supposed to be.
You do not run with the mob for any reason:
1 Peter 4:4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:
If someone does not speak evil of you because you are a Bible believer, AND because you are manly, you have failed, young man. This is not the whole picture though. Even unsaved people will be impressed with any young man who helps old ladies cross the street. Young men who help solve problems in the market place are well thought of. So, your reputation in the community, at school, and at work should be mixed. One will say, "That creep is a religious fanatic and a woman hater," and the girl standing nearby will say, "I like him. He changed my flat tire for me." The ideal young man on his Second Journey to manhood will have friends who really like him, and he will have enemies who really hate him, and hopefully nothing in between.
Finally, how many people around you know that you have forgiven them for offenses they perpetrated against you? In the Lord's Prayer Jesus linked our forgiveness to whether we forgive those who offend us. When a man forgives even the wicked when they offend him, he stands a little taller each time. This is because the wicked know that they cannot hold you hostage in grudges and hate. This kills them in their own conscience. Revenge is sweet humanly speaking, but it leaves you empty inside.
Now, go see if you can make it happen in the power of the Holy Spirit of God.
Ecclesiastes 11:9 Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment.
HERE IS SOME SATIRE ON YOUR PRESENT JOURNEY- By Edgar "Bill" Nye
This Bill Nye was an author back in 1900 and lived in Laramie, Wyoming.
ARE YOU STUCK IN THE STATE OF "BABY MAN"?
Questions based on this video:
1. Are you learning anything from the men on their Third, Fourth, and Fifth Journey of manhood?
2. Do YOU have anywhere you have to go in the morning?
3. Are you reading a book right now, beside the Bible, which is expanding your world view?
4. When was the last time you did something with a little kid?
5. In spite of the present mess, do you believe God can give you a good life?
6. Do your digital gadgets serve you, or do you serve them?
7. Do you have more friends in real life than on Facebook?
8. You have learned how to consume. What have you learned to produce?
To whom or what do you contribute your mind and soul?
9. What virtue can you see in your life today that was not there one year ago?
If these questions bore you, you are a sissy man, or worse, a baby man.
During this journey, a man learns submission. The journey usually starts around 18 to 25 years of age.
This journey may be as short as eight weeks in Basic Training in the US Military, or it may take twenty years. The more of a sissy and selfish this young man is, the later he will start this Third Journey, and the longer it will take him to learn that he is entitled to nothing, and that he has to get under authority to succeed.
The Christian young man learns to come under the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ eagerly. The unconverted pagan young man will try to put off the era of submission as long as possible. He will chase air head girls and hang around home until he is as old as 35 years.
The Christian young man who has been feminized by his Mommy and his pastor will appear, in every respect, to be the same sort of loser as the unsaved young man. This alleged Christian young man will have NO relationship with his father. In fact, he will see his father as a witless fool for coming under authority to Jesus Christ and to his boss at work. If you are a sissy Momma's boy you are a rebel. You are living in flagrant open rebellion against the Word of God, and you are VERY likely possessed of a devil.
1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.
This is the doctrine you are rebelling against:
Jeremiah 12:5 If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?
The truth about you, and every Momma's boy, is that you rebel against being a man now, so you will be a sissy and loser for the rest of your life. This era of your youth is when you decide whether or not you will run with the manly men. If you like your sissy life, kindly click out of here and GO HERE.
During this journey, the young man will find a wife. If he is a sissy slob, he will find a woman who dominates him just like his Mommy dominated his Daddy. If he is a manly man he will find a woman who presents herself as a feminine help meet to her Mommy and a living tribute to her Daddy's standards for the women in his home. See more in HOW TO FIND A WIFE FOR SISSY FEMINIZED YOUNG MEN below.
Jesus is the model for the third journey of manhood.
Hebrews 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
If Jesus had to suffer to qualify himself to be respected as a man, you and I will sure have to. He entered his journey to manhood sinless, and he ended his life sinless. If he had to "learn" anything in his life journey, that means learning is noble and something to look forward to. Try to imagine the omnipotent (all Knowing) Son of God going every day to the synagogue in Nazareth to learn to read and do math when he was a boy. Imagine the self-control in that God-boy in the "schul" when he heard the Rabbi give the class a piece of science information that the God-boy knew was all wrong. To be known in Nazareth as a boy who was "in favor of God and man," Jesus had to keep silent out of respect for a teacher who was dead wrong.
BY RUDYARD KIPLING
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
Luke 2:52 And Jesus (the boy) increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man.
As in Boot Camp, the Third Journey is marked by suffering. It may be physical pain as he learns to swing a two pound framing hammer all day on a construction job, or it may be the pain of the barbed wire as he does the "low crawl" in Basic Training in the Army. But, suffering is essential to becoming a manly man.
Learning submission also involves learning to take orders and criticism without responding in rage and sissy whining. Most young men today, even many in the Lord's Church, believe that they have a right to be treated well. This is the lie of the feminist movement, and only a spoiled brat believes it. Sadly, from the ghetto to the suburban church board, millions of grown men have inhaled this incense of Satan.
Our young man on his Third Journey to manhood also learns the penalty for taking short cuts. If he puts off getting a term paper written which could have been done over a period of weeks, he has to do it nonstop over night just before it is due, and he staggers around cross eyed all the next day. If he lets his car registration lapse, he has to go stand before a judge and humbly explain himself. A smart young man learns this before his Third Journey by watching sloppy older men mess up. A manly and godly Daddy often says, "Do you remember how uncle Harry had to pay a penalty for not doing his income tax on time?" This young man, during his Second Journey to manhood, files this away in his mind and lives with less pain during his Third Journey.
Samson rebelled at the Third Journey of manhood. He did not want to learn to submit. He did not want to lower himself to teach other men to make war as David taught his 400 mighty men. Samson did not want to submit to the Law of God in all things. And, he did not want to submit to God's and his own father's standard for a wife. Samson ended up learning submission blinded and grinding grain in the basement of the Philistine palace.
You can learn submission at the hands of a merciful God, living out your days of testing and burden bearing, and learning to respond to the human authority over you. Or, you can learn it all the hard way. But, you WILL learn submission, even if you have to go to prison to learn to submit. Many a young tough buck off of the streets of Chicago has learned submission in the US Army only after spending 90 days in the Army stockade. Some never learn and end up on death row.
When I was at Fort Knox in the US Army in Basic Training, we had to go on a forced march out to the range. The whole idea was to wear us down thoroughly so that we had to keep going when we had become exhausted. There were a couple of Black fellows from New York City, and as we started out on the march, they were doing the "block walk." This is the characteristic swagger Black young men like to use to look cool. I was a squad leader, and I asked my sergeant what he thought of the guys doing the block walk. They really looked ridiculous and unmilitary. He laughed and made a comment to a Black sergeant. The Black sergeant told us to leave the guys alone. He said, "They will walk like that for about two miles, and then their hips will be in so much pain that they will give it up and march normally." That is exactly what happened. Every step in our training was designed to force us to submit to military protocols and work as a team. Resisting was painful.
Journey Three forces a man to get a humble view of who he is and what he is worth.
A young man in a church I pastored had reached the age of eighteen. He had gotten a job, but he lost it through no fault of his own. He then laid around the house for months. When asked why he could not find a job, he told someone, "I will not work for less than $10 an hour." He was strong, and when he worked he worked hard. But, the young man had not learned that he was not entitled to anything in life. He got married, had a baby, and he was suddenly ready to work for anything he could get. It is during the Third Journey that a man marries, and this does wonders for his submission to reality and to human authority. Many men get fired over and over again because they refuse to submit to authority. These men usually end up living on welfare or are poorly self-employed. If these gold bricks do get married, their wife is wasted and always tired because the dog will not lift a finger to do anything he does not like to do.
No Christian man will ever be used by God who does not learn submission. Read that sentence again please.
Young man, have you walked THAT COUNTRY MILE? Ain't nobody gonna walk it for you.
The alternative to learning submission is HARD TIME. I have known Christian men who refused to submit to the Word of God who ended up serving HARD TIME down some dead end in life where they had no victory because God was chastening them for rebellion.
THE ANGRY YOUNG MAN IS A LOSER ON A DEAD END STREET This is the griping men who hates authority. This is the ANTIFA young man. He is a slimy piece of moral trash who is perfectly useless to society AND God. Is this you? "And, he'll go to the grave as an angry old man....." Modern examples of this are Rush Limbaugh and Alex Jones. Millions of angry men listen to these two men as if they were the prophet of God.
A sure sign you have not yet learned the manly lesson of submission is that you are an angry young man.
During Journey Four a man is ready to go to work for God and fulfill a manly role as husband, father, and wage earner. This journey commences right after a man learns submission. God, and other people, can now depend on this man to behave in a manly but disciplined manner if he is given responsibility. At this point in life, the man also receives what is described as "a calling." Something calls to him which may have been stirring since Journey One, when he first looked at older men in admiration. Or, it may be that God opens a door the man never even knew was there. Some people refer to this as a cause. This is a life objective which rises well above producing income and gaining power.
Bill Gates had it all, power and financial success. But, long before he entered old age he left Microsoft and went to Africa to solve people's water problems. A manly man finds a cause somewhere along the way.
During his Fourth Journey of life, a man conquers the world, or he masters a skill, and he gradually establishes a reputation of being, "good at what he does." He stops chasing vocational dreams, and he zeroes in on one single dream and he makes it come true. This is the time when a lot of men sell their motorcycle. They realize they are more valuable to Mom and the kids alive and sound in body then being the champion hill climber in town and ending up in a wheel chair.
So, as a Bible believer, what does God want you to do right now? Looking back on all of your life experiences, what was God getting you ready to do? Are you doing it, or are you at least pushing open the door?
Hugh Cholmondeley, 3rd Baron Delamere (28 April 1870 – 13 November 1931), styled "The Honourable" from birth until 1887, was a British peer. He inherited a massive estate in England at his father's death. He was one of the first and most influential British settlers in Kenya. Lord Delamere, the son of The 2nd Baron Delamere and his wife, Augusta Emily Seymour, moved to Kenya in 1901 and acquired vast land holdings from the British Crown.
Lord Delamere was determined to turn his estate in Kenya into a successful cattle and wheat ranch, and in the process he burned his bridges. He totally liquidated all his holdings in England and committed himself to living out his life in Kenya. Over the years, he became the unofficial 'leader' of the colony's European community. He was famous for his tireless labours to establish a working agricultural economy in East Africa, including a disease resisant strain of wheat and Kenya's first flour mill. He was also famous for his childish pranks among his European friends when he was at his leisure, like racing the train to the next station in his horse and buggy.
Once Lord Delamere got his vision for farming in Kenya he never looked back.
As a husband, the Fourth Journey man also takes full authority of his home. He teaches his wife and children the Word of God, and he enters the battle zone against evil in his own life, his home, and the community. He is there to lift burdens for older man and troubled saints. He is eager to serve in the local church, and the aging pastor can depend on him to defend the saints when Satan attacks. He is hated at public school board and city council meetings because he demands transparency and right ethics be observed. The police in town can depend on him to be there if he is needed, and businesses know that when he says he will do something, he does it, and does it well.
Isaiah 33:15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;
16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.
The man on his Fourth Journey is also a defender of the King James Bible, and he is known to love the discussion of sound doctrine. He arms himself with Bible doctrine like a weapon, and he uses it to attack and destroy heresies whenever he finds them. He keeps no company with heretics, but he does eagerly seek to deliver the deceived from their errors, if they will listen. To other manly men this man is known for never leaving or modifying his standards on the narrow way. He also teaches his children, by example, that changing standards in life is deadly.
This man also shows regular instincts for the "vigorous life" spoken of by Teddy Roosevelt. He goes hunting and fishing with other men, and he is known to be physically active. He also craves the company of his sons when he is into some manly distraction, and he keeps a garden like the first man Adam did.
I grew up in Africa in a missionary home. Other missionary sons around the area were allowed by their fathers to drive without a driver's license, and they were allowed to hunt game without a license. My Dad would not do this, even if we were far out on the plains where it was "safe." And, the government officials would probably not have complained if they knew my Dad let me break the law this way. Many years later, as I sited down the scope of my gun on an antelope in the brushy country of Ethiopia where my wife and I were missionaries, I just looked and wished we could have fresh meat. But, I knew I did not have a game license, so we did not have fresh meat that day. My Dad, who is now in Heaven with his Lord, still follows me around in this way because he was the man who taught me that godly men do not break the law, even when no one cares.
Proverbs 24:21 My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:
Again, I want to stress the manly virtue of mercy. Here is a man who could only show mercy because he was the man. WATCH THE VIDEO
Life should not end right after a man gets his last paycheck.
There comes a day in a man's life when he has done it all, and he is highly regarded in manly company. God, at this point, allows that man to start up his own road to Calvary. There is a cause, a war, or a load of struggle that no one else can bear. All that has gone on before seems to scream, "For this moment you were born. For this battle I prepared you. Go in this thy strength." And, the man of God learns the somber aspect of the doctrine of predestination. He really loved Predestination when, at age 35, he found a bargain on a 1967 Camero, but this variety of predestination is tinged with shock and awe. Taking up the Cross is about to lead to the end of his life.
This last journey may be a battle with cancer. It may mean raising your grandson whose Daddy abandoned him, and his Mommy died. It may be sitting in the gate of the city and letting the younger men go to war. A successful Fifth Journey consists of doing this trip with grace and being a blessing to anyone God allows you to help. It especially involves being a manly grandpa to that young fellow on his Second Journey to manhood.
It may be simply slowing down the pace a man loves so much and keeping a garden and putting a journal for Christians on the Internet instead of teaching in a local church. It may be tuning a few pianos in Texas instead of running all over the southeast corner of Arizona as a piano tuner (yours truly).
In 1959 my family was returning to Africa where my parents were missionaries. We took a ship from New York City to London, and we flew from London to Nairobi. We were in London for several days, and we stayed in the international Missions Club. This was like a hotel, but only for missionaries passing through London. The building was quite old, and it had bay windows. In one of these bay windows sat a retired Anglican bishop every day reading a devotional book. He seemed to be doing nothing else. As a kid I decided the old man was not being very useful to anyone. Now that I am old, I look back with understanding. That old bishop may have had no more strength to do vigorous things for the Lord. He acted as the chaplain of the guest house, and he had learned the patience of the Firth Journey of manhood.
The sign that a man is dealing well with his Fifth Journey is that he does not mope and complain that he cannot get anything done, or that he is not doing enough for God. Solomon, the Preacher, tells this man that his Fifth Journey will involve certain burdens:
Ecclesiastes 12:1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;
2 While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:
3 In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble (hand tremor), and the strong men shall bow themselves (arthritis), and the grinders cease because they are few (teeth), and those that look out of the windows (eyes) be darkened,
4 And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird (insomnia), and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low (hearing loss);
5 Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high (walking is troublesome), and fears shall be in the way (self-defense is more difficult), and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire (sexually) shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:
6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.
7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
The man, who laughed years ago at the use of Viagra, now has a standing prescription at the pharmacy. The desire has not completely failed, but the flesh is weak.
I told you above about walking to the general store in Oklahoma with my Dad when I was six years old. There was another terribly sad day for me later in life. It was when Dad could no longer take the heavy end of the load when we carried something. Dad was supposed to be my strong man forever. That day, I came face to face with the fact that my turn would come to take the Fifth and last Journey. My Dad had a hard time with that. We had to really watch him because he had this thing about wanting to climb up on the roof and look for leaks, just like he used to. When Dad was younger in Los Angeles during the Great Depression, he made a living climbing 90 foot palm trees in Los Angeles to trim the dead branches off. And, he had a hard time to accept the tremor in those hardened calloused hands of his.
Do you want to give your father, during his Fifth Journey, some joy? Ask him to tell the stories of his First, Second, Third, and Fourth Journeys. Let you son spend time with grandpa listening to the stories of past struggles and victories. Also, when the men are gathered around at church functions, ask the old saint, "What was it like in your day, Fred?" If you want older men to look forward in hope, you need to let them look back at the good memories and victories. SLIM DUSTY SINGS ABOUT THIS
The Apostle Paul passed through all the journeys, and he had some hard knocks along the way. As a child, he grew up possessed with being a rabbi, possibly like his father. His hero was Gamaliel, a mighty Jewish scholar at whose feet Paul studied. Paul was very sure of himself, and he proved his zeal for God by killing those heretics called Christians and destroying their churches. And, then submission set in. God knocked Paul off of his horse, and after his conversion, God sent Paul to live with Arabs in the back side of the desert for three years. No ministry, no preaching the Gospel to the Gentiles, drinking camel's milk, and living in tents. It may well be that Paul learned tent mending from those Arabs, and God used that to help Paul pay his bills later. When God sent Paul into Journey Four, all Hell broke loose, and Paul was ready.
2 Corinthians 11:22 Are they Hebrews? so am I. Are they Israelites? so am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? so am I.
23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.
24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.
25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;
26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
28 Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.
29 Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not?
30 If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.
31 The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.
If you want a Bible example of manliness to show your son, there it is. After listing all the rough on rats experiences Paul went through, he then boasts that he is weaker than the others, and he is ridden with infirmities. What a man, both fearless, and very humble.
So, how did Paul deal with his Fifth Journey? He ended his life under house arrest in Rome, unable to visit his friends and the churches he had planted. All he could do was write letters and receive an occasional guest. And in the end, he was executed by Caesar. And, what did he accomplish by taking this last journey with grace and zeal? Answer: Most of your Bible New Testament books on doctrine and the conduct of a local church. Without those letters of Paul, Martin Luther could not have taken his stand. Without the Epistles, there would be no Church today. No one would know what a local church should look like nor how it should be conducted. Paul's Fifth Journey fulfilled his own teaching:
Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
How are you and I doing on the last and Fifth Journal of manhood? Will you die fulfilling your own teaching? Younger men and boys are watching.
Hebrews 4:11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
The reward of a blessed Journey Five is only to those who walked with God, in the Word, on the previous four journeys.
HERE IS A PRICELESS TALE OF A MAN WHOSE FIFTH JOURNEY CAME EARLY IN LIFE
The priceless lesson is that he did not kick back after his first work of glory. He kept finding causes until he died.
A BASHFUL LITTLE RUSSIAN MAN- 70+ YEARS OLD- FIFTH JOURNEY VICTORY
If you are alive and reading this, your journey is not over yet. What has God put in front of you? Is there a cause?
DO YOU KNOW A BOY WHO NEEDS TO LEARN WHAT A MAN SHOULD BE?
If so, would you make it your last manly task to make sure that boy does not grow up warped by modern society? Pastor: Please watch this video and ask yourself if the men in your church have a common cause. Do they function as a team trying to glorify God together? Competition be damned. Jesus never promoted competition with his disciples, but he DID build them into a team. And, later in the Early Church Age you see the team in action.
1 Samuel 17:25 And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that is come up? surely to defy Israel is he come up: and it shall be, that the man who killeth him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his father's house free in Israel.
26 And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?
27 And the people answered him after this manner, saying, So shall it be done to the man that killeth him.
28 And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab's anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle.
29 And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?
30 And he turned from him toward another, and spake after the same manner: and the people answered him again after the former manner.
Is there a cause in your last journey of manfood? Is there a boy who needs to learn the cause of manhood from you?
