Youth, I dare you to trust God!

Posted by Admin On May - 14 - 2014

By Rev. Harold E. Bailey

With careful consideration, coupled with effectual prayer, I have decided not to disappear into the depths of retirement. I have been spiritually reminded, as I was admonished some years ago while in Israel. It was on one of Israel’s steep mountains that I went to pray to beg God to grant me leave from my work with troubled youth!  God’s response was then as it is now: In a resounding echo of truth the response was loud and quite clear: What have you done? When looking at my life, it really was nothing in comparison to what our Lord and Savior did for us! It was there in that moment that the spirit of God revealed to me that the only retirement for those chosen for work… is from earth to glory! Needless to say, I came back with a spirited determination to work the work of He who has sent me!

And so, on this mission, I will continue to fight a good fight and trust that many of the things I’ve said and done to spiritually restore youth and elders to the Cross, did not fall on stony ground.

Youth and Elders, I fall to my knees and beg you by the mercies of God: Stop killing one another! The instructions to murder, rob, steal and destroy are of Satan!

Stop destroying the body with drugs – for it is the Temple of God…and is not to be defiled.

Pull up your pants and stop exposing your behind. Slave behavior and inmate mentality has no place in a respectable society. Respect women and give them a decent man to respect! Defy the stench of yesterday’s slave behavior that only lives in and through you… Kill the evil’s off … and let it begin and end with you.

1.) Obey your parents in the Lord for this is the right thing to do – that your days will not be shortened upon the earth.

2.) Parents, don’t provoke your children to do the things that are wrong. Parents with sound reasoning know quite well when they are breaking the laws of man  … and parents also know when they are breaking the laws of God.

The enemy of God is Satan, who is the ruler of this age. You must remember that Satan is the prince of darkness. But youth must know that it won’t be long for Satan to reign, for Christ is coming again real soon!

Youth: Take a chance and read the Holy Bible! I dare you to trust God as you trust those who have said they ’love’ you.  When in court or jail … where were the folk who said they loved you?

Try Trusting God with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding, for in all your ways acknowledge God and He will direct your path. Things only get better from there!
