Godly Wives: Keepers at Home
“The aged women, likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, Teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed” – (Titus 2:3-5).
We need sermons today exhorting women to pursue being godly mothers and wives in the face of satanic attack against the Godly home. We need to protect them with the sword of God’s truth. How this nation needs Godly wives and mothers. How we need grandmas (aged women) who will be holy women of God like Sarah and not only be doers of God’s Word, but teach the younger women to be also. The younger women are being taught by the world and TV and so become worldly.
The antichrist spirit is applying tremendous pressure to get women out of the home. The devil attacks God’s Word of truth that says wives are to be “keepers at home.” Satan has been very successful today in getting wives to be full-time career women instead of full-time mothers and wives and the consequences are catastrophic. When I think of the effect this has on millions of children, I sometimes cry. There is an evil antichristian spirit of anti-motherhood that’s sweeping the world today and only the born again saints that will stand on God’s truth can escape its effects. No unsaved worldly church member will be able stand against it.
The divorce rate is 60% today. Don’t follow the wicked world, especially in the area of family, because it will affect the next generations as well. Grandmas who become working mothers outside the home are teaching daughters and granddaughters to work outside the home and leave others to mother their children, is destroying the American family. Stand on God’s Word – be a “keeper at home” and survive this satanic onslaught. Don’t follow the wicked Jezebel-feminist crowd. Ladies, keep house or you may lose it.
And even wives with no children are to be “keepers at home.” It protects the marriage by keeping wives from mixing daily with other men and ungodly women on the job. A leading cause of divorce is adultery on the job. A woman’s home is her place of protection and security. Husbands – keep her at home and you’ll keep your home.
It is written – “Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget…” – (Is.49:15). Millions of women are doing just that today and institutional day care and the world are designed to encourage her to forget. A woman places her child in day care and carries the baby’s picture to work. She’s a very foolish woman, following the world instead of God’s Word. Thirty million children are being cared for by others while mothers work. They buy the child beautiful ‘things’ but send them to others to mother. Working mothers are looking for anyone to parent their children. Big expensive empty houses is normal today. Big expensive empty kitchens and nobody cooking in them is normal today.
Women are speaking loud and clear today. “I
want what I want. I want what pleases me and me alone
and nobody else dare impinge upon my desires. I’m not going to take
responsibility for anyone else, not even my children.” Abortion shows more than
anything the utter disregard that women have toward their children. Take the
pill, have as much sex as you want, don’t have children and be tied down to
sacrifice. If you get pregnant, murder the consequences, it’s legal. Almost two
million babies a year in the
We hear much about women’s rights and feminism, pushing the mothers into working outside the home. We need to hear more testimonies by born again Christian women today saying “I’m not working outside my home. I’m going to stay home and raise my baby and be a good wife.” Husbands don’t be a wimp – “keep her at home.” Don’t push her into working outside the home to pay for your greeds. Women – don’t be rebellious to God’s Word and follow the world to the destruction of your family. Be the greatest thing you can be – a Godly mother and wife. She’s getting hard to find today – “Her price is far above rubies” – (Prov.31:10). A precious jewel indeed.
“Children are an heritage of the Lord, and the
fruit of the womb is his reward” –
(Ps.127:3). Instead of calling the baby “The
fruit of the womb,” they call it a tissue or fetus. It makes it easier to
kill that way. “Thy wife shall be as a
fruitful vine by the sides of thine
house: thy children like olive plants around thy table” – (Ps.128:3). We
farm our children out to daycare. We separate children from their families by
putting them into warehouses known as daycare centers. They are ‘mothered’ by
several different people who dare not discipline them properly or raise them up
in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. The child never gets the love and
time and attention that mother could give them. Many are sexually abused. Many
are bringing their children to grandmother to take care of and making
grandmother rear a second family when she’s too old. There is now a new day
care frontier: your baby on the job. Last year 29% of companies allowed mothers
to bring their babies to work. Baby-lon,
Nurse your babies. Nursing ensures that time
and attention will be devoted to children during nursing – the child is
comforted. “That ye may suck, and be
satisfied with the breast of her
consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted…” – (Is.66:11). How
many million of children are not being comforted by their mothers during
nursing today? Jesus prophesied of these end days as He carried His cross – “Daughters of
Cooking and cleaning can wait for tomorrow,
For babies grow up, we’ve learned to our sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs and dust go to sleep,
I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.
This picture of mother and baby in a rocking chair makes a powerful statement. She stands against the powerful influences of today and takes the time to be a godly mother and enjoy her child. Keep at home – keep God’s Word – (Lk.11:28).
According to reports among women who work, the more they work outside the home, the more likely they are to divorce. They don’t need their husband to support them, or she falls in ‘love’ with a co-worker. Two thirds of divorces are by women. The whole media is pushing careers for women today. Beware of it ladies – don’t follow the wicked world. Be a Godly housekeeper or your house will be put up for sale after your divorce.
Many two-career families in effect, live as married singles. Separate interest, schedules, preoccupations, sometimes even separate budgets, then they are separated by divorce. She works to pay for a $200,000 house and all the things in it. Jesus said, “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth” – (Lk.12:15). The husband’s income is enough – don’t covet. Sometimes her job doesn’t even pay off money –wise. It costs more for her to earn her paycheck than she earns. Taxes are 30% and she needs a car with repairs and gas and hairdos and clothes etc. It’s a great cost to them and their marriages and their children. Then there’s child care costs, going out to eat and buying prepared food at twice the cost because they have no time to cook or shop around for deals. Do they ever sit down and count the costs?
Many fathers are full-time housewives today, stay at home dads. They stay at home and mother the children while mother works – totally crazy and anti-Bible. When Adam and Eve sinned they were cursed with labor and then death – (Gen.3:16-19). The man was to labor outside the home and the women to labor in childbirth and raise the children and labor in the home being a good housewife. The man is to labor and provide for his family – (I Tim.5:8). He is to be the breadwinner and she cooks the food. Now we have almost no real men left. They refuse to shoulder the responsibility of supporting their family and their wives go to work. They want new things and their wives must pay for them and support themselves – shame on them. Women are having to bear both curses today: they labor with children and in their home and labor in providing a check and many fall apart under the strain. Men ought to be thankful she can’t put both curses on him. Women should be keepers at home. Most of the time, when a man’s wife works outside the home, he loses his headship.
A high percentage of daycare centers are in churches. They refuse to preach the truth on the family and instead capitalize and make much money on this heartrending business. And then they deceive even more and call it a ministry.
Working mothers have no time for church revivals or cooking for the poor or witnessing to others or teaching the Word of God to their children. Time is translated love not money. Daycare centers are germ factories, they catch all their diseases from other children. Many sick children are brought there because mother must work. We desperately need our women back in the home. Don’t be covetous – “Be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” – (Heb.13:5). My God shall provide all your needs, but not greeds.
So many believe the lie that you can be baptized with water into the church of Christ, even as an infant. That’s heresy and a lie of Satan. John the Baptist, who baptized with water said about Jesus Christ – “he shall baptize with the Holy Ghost” – (Mt.3:11). No baptism outwardly can ever wash away your sins inwardly. Only the blood of Christ can – “unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood” – (Rev.1:5). Receive the Spiritual baptism of the Holy Spirit – “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body…” – (I Cor.12:13).
Repent of your sins and by faith believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness of sins and you will be saved and become a new born again creature in Christ – (2 Cor.5:17). You will be born again and baptized by the same Holy Spirit into the body of Christ and become the bride of Christ. You can have eternal life instead of eternal death in the lake of fire- “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son” – (I Jn.5:11). Do not spurn the grace and love of God in His beloved Son on the cross. Receive Him as Savior today. Be a part of the family of God and then you will know how to rear a Godly family.
Be a keeper at home or you may lose your home.
