Mother's Day 2011

"What you are now is what you're probably be the rest of your life. You're on a changing spot." Brother Branham told us that eighty-six percent of the conversions to Jesus Christ are done before twenty-one years old. After you pass that age, you become more molded or set in your ways. It's not that you can't still be saved, but it's much rarer.

We know that God alone can call a man and save him into His glorious Kingdom. But we also know that God put a special tool on earth to teach us before we reach that crucial 'changing spot' in our lives. There are four Gospels written in the Bible: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Then there's an unwritten one, and that's mother.

A child clings to the mother from the moment it's received into this world, and a special bond forms that remains forever. Mother is the one who nurtures and cares for a child. Mother is the one that a child goes to when they’re hurt or needing comfort. She stays home with her children day and night, raising them and teaching them to love and serve the Lord Jesus Christ. Then, as it was with Jochebed and Moses, there comes a time she must let go. But a true godly mother never completely lets go of her precious love gifts from God. Her teachings will stay with her children as long as they live, and so will her love and fervent prayers.

You see, a child listens to its mother; some little touch about that mother, that a child will listen to. When it's hurt, it'll go to the mother for consolation before it'll go to the father. Because she was first with it, you know. And there's some gift that God gives a mother to be that way; I mean a real mother. Now, I believe that mothers are honorable and godly.

Even though you may reach that 'changing spot' in your life where you no longer feel you need mother, it's her faithful upbringing to you that will echo through your heart and mind. Those are the days when mother will be on her knees most, praying for God to protect and save the soul of her baby. She stands faithful to the responsibility God gave her of raising her child.

This Mother's Day, don't forget about all those godly mothers out there who've shown so much love and shed so many tears for their children. You may think they are old or indifferent, but that's still mother, she deserves your love and respect. Not only on Mother's Day, but every day.

That's a real mother. She taught him the precepts of the Lord. She told him how he must be holy. She told him how and what he must live, and how, what God must do, would do for him. And it stuck with Moses all the days of his life. And any good, true, loyal mother that'll take her little babies, instead of send them to picture shows and dances, and so forth like that, and she'll put them on her lap and teach them about the Lord Jesus Christ...

Oh! Your family is what you are. You raise your child in a certain environment; it's got a ninety-eight percent better chance to go right than it has if you bring it up in the wrong way. "Bring up a child in the way that it should go, and when it's old, will not depart from it." Be brought up right. Teach your children to do right, to be honest, to be square and fair, even when they're in school. The Influence Of Another 62-1013
