Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate. – Psalm 127:3-5. Satan knows this and this is why he is at war with children. Children are pure and are walking clean slates. They can be easily manipulated and exploited. We will list the different tactics Satan uses on his war on children.
Killing an unborn child is one of the top tactics Satan uses. Before a child is born, his or her destiny is already established by God. This is why God told Jeremiah, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” – Jeremiah 1:5. The enemies also know this and try to predict which baby will be a threat to the kingdom of darkness based on pattern. If Satan sees that this child as a threat, he will send demons to manipulate not only the parents, grandparents, and even the doctors as well to make sure that this baby does not make it on the Earth.
For example: This woman got pregnant at an early age. During her pregnancy, there were complications. The doctors told her to abort the baby or she will die. This woman refused to abort the baby. Both the woman and baby girl survived. This baby girl grew up to be a drug addict. However she ended up marrying a Christian husband, and converted. She never wanted children but her husband convinced her after 5 years. She born a baby boy. That baby boy grows up to be the biggest pastor in the world. This is why it is written, Grandchildren are the crown of the aged, and the glory of a son is his father. – Proverbs 17:6.
2. Child Abuse
From sex trafficking to neglect, child abuse is on the rise. In USA, 7 million children were reported in 2017 for child abuse. Satan knows that the more a child is abused, the more demons he or she acquire as an adult. So he will put a provoking thought to a person when he or she gets irritated as the child in order for abuse to be in that child’s life. Satan will also make it a way for a parent to get addicted to drugs in order for the parent to neglect their children. Studies shows that 80% of children who were abused, acquire at least one mental disorder. Mental disorders are a demonic attacks.
3. Broken Homes
One of the top things Satan love to attack is marriages. This is why today in America the divorce rate is 50%. Satan knows the power of God-fearing families (Genesis 1:26-28, Matthew 18:19-20). When children are brought up in a single parent homes, they are exposed to the spirit of rejection, poverty, and other demonic spirits. This is why children who are raised in a single parent home are mostly like to drop out of school, become teen parents, and idle in life.
4. Gender & Sexuality Corruption
For decades Satan has been causing confusion between sexuality and gender. People believe homosexuality and gender fluidity is normal when it fact it is the work of the marine kingdom. The Bible makes it clear that woman and man should not switch roles on what they should wear (Deuteronomy 22:5). People who changes their sex, cross dress, and/or is homosexual will not go to Heaven (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). If you are opening your child to these practices, you’re opening more demons into your family’s lives.
Calling your child a theybie (plural pronoun) is not helping your child but doing the work of the devil. Gender is already assigned before birth by God. This is why there is a great distinction between a boy and a girl by their sex organ. Your daughter shouldn’t referred to as he if she wants to dress like a boy and play legos. Likewise with your son who want to dress like a girl and wear makeup. Your child needs deliverance.
Satan influenced many television writers, producers, and directors to put demonic things on TV. From demonic cartoons to lesbian characters on kids shows, this is how Satan corrupt the minds of children. Many cartoon TV shows have demons and monsters in them. Many shows on TV are not educational but a distraction to children and doesn’t help their development at all.
6. Video Games
Satan also influences video game programmers to create video games that have violence, demons, and occult practices. Both television and video games open children to demons. This is why some children will have “imaginary friends”, mental issues, depression without any trauma and require professional help by the time they are adults. For it is written, “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” – Matthew 6:22-23.
Just like statues or idols, any toy with a face (dolls, action toys, figures) is demonic and has an evil spirit living in it. This is why there are videos of dolls moving by themselves on the internet. Satan uses these toys to not only scare children but also to have legality into your child’s life.
Satan influence schools to teach many things that are not true as if they are facts such as the evolution, the big bang theory, etc. Schools also teach things that are not true in history such as settlements and slavery in America, and world history.
We as parents have to be mindful in what we expose ourselves and families too. For it is written, Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2.
