The 2017 U.S. Census Bureau reports that 19.7 million children, or 1 in 4, live without a father in the home. Host Jason Armstrong believes that what started in the Garden of Eden with the fall of man has now grown into the fall of the father, especially in our nation. He even says these results come from "a curse of fatherlessness." In this episode of Remnant Voice on the Charisma Podcast Network, discover the power of having fathers in the faith.
Ultimately, host Jason Armstrong says, "the void that is out there is because we're not stepping into that role." But what can we do about it? How do we combat this stronghold the enemy has upon our culture? Upon reflecting on Acts 2:17 and Joel 2:28 which talks about men dreaming dreams and sons and daughters prophesying, Armstrong says, "I would submit to you that before we see that outpouring and sons and daughters, there have to be fathers' hearts turning first."
And, Armstrong goes on to say, "If you've never been a father, there's an invitation to be fathered by Him." Learning to own our sonship and daughtership as children of God will allow us to see the wonderful Father the Lord is to us, thereby setting the example for us, in turn, to be fathers to the next generation.
Armstrong acknowledges, "I can't help but see throughout the body and throughout the nation, that there's been other substitutions" for fathers or father figures. He goes on to say, "Even Elijah said, 'Where's the God of our fathers?' I would say, 'Where are the fathers after God?'"
