Satan will do everything in his power to tear down the walls of spiritual protection around those you love. As a father of 3 I am concerned for what the future holds for my children and yours. We must stand up and fight!

What kind of nation will be left for future generations? Will we settle for a place where the slaughter of millions of unborn children is accepted or a country that denies born again believer’s the right to public display of faith? That isn’t good enough for the Wright Family!

Today, I step into the ring. I will no longer sit in the shadows waiting for our children and families to be destroyed. I am rolling up my sleeves, putting on my gloves and I am going to begin the FIGHT FOR MY FAMILY!

Nehemiah 4:14 NLT Then as I looked over the situation, I called together the leaders and all the people and said to them, “Don’t be afraid of the enemy! Remember the Lord, who is great and glorious, and go fight for your friends, your families (sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, even your in-laws) and your homes!

Have you looked over the situation?
Half of all marriages end in divorce, even among Born again believers
Drug use in middle school students is on the rise
The average age of sexual activity is 11-12
According to Dr. Dobson’s Focus on the Family, children see violence, rape, adultery, burglary, drug use, and vulgar language on prime TV on a regular basis.
Teen pregnancy is still an epidemic. Teen suicide still happens (avg. age 15)

Don’t be afraid of the enemy!
He is not all powerful
He will not and does not win in the end
He must flee when you rebuke him
He is under our feet.

Remember the Lord!
He is great
He is glorious
He is all powerful
He is all knowing

Fight for your families and your homes!
1Timothy 6:12 NLT Fight the good fight for what we believe in…

If you won’t stand and fight for what you believe in you will fall for anything!

Ephesians 6:12 NLT we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms.

Is anybody ready to stand and fight for their family?


1. We must become GUARDIANS for our families!
A guardian is one who protects, one who guards over and against.

Guard your children, your spouse, your relatives and loved ones. Be a shield!
BEER Story- My dad and now I am a dad. Matthew

1 Timothy 5:8 Mes Any one who neglects to care for family members, he has denied the Christian faith and is worse than an unbeliever. (KJV)

What do I guard them against-?
Millions of filthy porn sites on the internet
The ungodly fashion of the secular world. Boys should look like boys and little girls should look like, act like talk like and dress like little girls.
The counterfeit for true worship the devil calls MUSIC
The hundreds maybe even thousands of predators, and unregistered sex offenders of our land

Is anybody ready to stand and fight for their family?

2. We must stand up as DEFENDERS for the family!
A defender is one is a supporter, an advocate or fan of
I defend the traditional family values of the Word of God
God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve or Eve and Edna for one another.
The family is made up of a man and a woman who have left father and mother are cleaving to one another and becoming ONE! That is the biblical definition of marriage.

I defend that definition. I stand up as an advocate, supporter and fan of a traditional home.

America is in trouble-
Homosexual live styles are being widely accepted even to the point that so called churches are voting to accept them in their pulpits.
Bi-sexuals, swingers, partner swapping…it is an abomination!

The enemy is hurling things at the church at a record astonishing pace. We as Christians, God fearing, Bible believing, Holy Spirit breathing believers must defend our families from the attack of Apolyon

The men and woman of old fought for their families. I believe it is time we do the same and defend the HOME!

Moses fought and delivered his family from bondage
Noah protected his family from the flood
Joseph provided for his family during famine
David killed giants preserving his brother’s lives
Esther’s one night with the King saved an entire nation
Abraham fought to free Lot (his nephew) from captivity
Ruth fought to provide for her mother-in-law
Jacob fought with Laban to win his family
Jarius fought for his deathly ill daughters healing
A father brought his demon possessed son and a mother brought her demon possessed daughter to Jesus to be set free.

How are you fighting for your family? Are you defending them against the enemy?

Is anybody ready to stand and fight for their family?

3. We must fight as CHAMPIONS for our family!
A champion is a roll model, an example, the best because of their experience

1 Corinthians 9:26 NLT I am not like a boxer missing his punches. I am not shadowing boxing.

Champions know how to aim at and hit their targets.
Champions don’t back down.
Become a role model and example. (THE LITTLE DOG STORY)

We must fight against the blessing blockers the devil places in our family’s path
Rally the family troops to battle together
You and your family can possess all things that Christ died for you to have. The devil is a liar. We are more than conquerors…that makes us Champions

Only God knows what a child gets from hearing their parents pray
Only God knows what a child gets from seeing the family worship together
Only God knows….be an example

Deut. 4:9 Mes Teach what you’ve see and heard to your children and your grandchildren.

I want my children to avoid the pit falls and storms I have gone through.
May all who come behind us find us faithful!

1Timothy 6:12 NLT Fight the good fight for what we believe in…

What do I believe in?
I believe in the family,
The sanctity of marriage
That the marriage bed is undefiled
That a marriage is still between a man and a woman
That a man and a woman should leave father and mother cleave to one another and the tow should become one flesh
I believe that the husband ought to love his wife the way Christ loved the church
I believe it will be easy for a woman to submit to a man who loves her the way Christ loves the church
I believe that children ought to obey their parents
I believe that parents should train up a child in the way it should go and when the grow up they will still remember it
I believe that single moms and dads should love the lord and raise their children accordingly
I believe God still has a plan for you even if you have gone through a divorce and there is live after divorce and you should still fight for your family
I believe every grandma and grandpa ought to pray for and nurture their grandkids
I believe that no matter what your family unit consists of that FAMILY MATTERS and we must fight for our families.

Is anybody ready to stand and fight for their family?
