Leviticus 19:29
Attached audio files: 

Introduction:  We face a great battle today of which I am afraid we are ignorant.  One by one our strengths are becoming weaknesses.  We are waving the white flag and we don’t even know it.  We have often discussed the importance of having Godly men who are strong in the faith, but I’m afraid that we have focused so strongly on other areas that we have neglected one of our greatest weapons.  The future strength of this church as well as many others like ours is heavily dependent upon what we do as relating to this battle.  This battle is the battle for our women and in particular our daughters.  Satan has robbed the church blind of its daughters.  Do names like Jessie Daniels, Kelly Clarkson, Missy Elliott, Mariah Carey, Shelly King, and Britney Spears ring a bell?  They all started out either going to Church as children or are in Church now.  Who’s next?  It may be that my daughter or your daughter is the next target of Satan.  So what shall we do?

  1. Recognize the value of Daughters
    1. Old Testament battle plan
      1. Pharaoh (Exodus 1:22)
      2. Moses (Numbers 31:15-18)
      3. The men of Israel (Judges 21:10-12)
    2. Master’s female servants (Exodus 21:4, 7)
  2. Recognize Satan’s plan for Daughters
    1. Destroy man’s relationship with and worship of God (Exodus 34:16; Numbers 25:1; Judges 3:6)
    2. To destroy a seed or a people (Genesis 6:1-2)
    3. To get rid of the men of God (Mark 6:22-25)
  3. Abstain from endangering our Daughters
    1. Selling our daughters to the world (Genesis 19:8)
    2. Surrounding them with the enemy (Genesis 34:1-5)
  4. Recognize and teach God’s plan for Daughters
    1. Don’t give the daughters to the world (Ezra 9:12; Nehemiah 13:25; Deuteronomy 7:3)
    2. Virtue (Proverbs 12:4; Proverbs 31:10)
    3. To fear Him (Proverbs 31:30)
    4. To be taught by the elder women and mothers (Ezekiel 16:44; Titus 2:3-4)
    5. Minister to Christ (Mark 15:40-41; Matthew 27:54-55)
    6. To be full of good works (Acts 9:36)
    7. To worship Him (Acts 16:14)
    8. To be holy in body and spirit (1 Corinthians 7:34)
    9. To labour in the gospel (Philippians 4:3)

Conclusion:  We are in an uphill battle.  All of the odds are against us.  The forces of Hell, Hollywood, Fashion, Schools, Family, Modern Churches are launching every attack known to them.  Are you willing to deny yourself and fight the fight for your daughters?  Are you willing to suffer persecution to spare your daughters?  Are you willing to change the way you act, dress, talk and walk to rescue your daughters?  If you are willing, God will both enable you to fight and reward you for fighting.  THE QUESTION STANDS, ARE YOU WILLING?
