Why the Enemy is After the Children


It’s clear that the enemy is after the children, but why? Why is he so bent upon their destruction? What could possibly be the real reason for these blatant attacks against them? What is he afraid of? Let’s turn to the Scriptures and find out why.

Why the destruction of the innocent lives of the preborn through the murderous attack of abortion?  The Word of the Lord to the prophet Jerimiah 1:5 as he was being called into the priesthood gives us great insight into this mystery. He says, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” You notice twice it says, “Before”, not during, not after, but before we are formed in our mother’s womb God knows us and has a destiny for each one of us to fulfill. 

Another form of destruction in the lives of the children is with the identity crisis. Why is there such a strong push to strip the children of their basic identity? We can find the answer to this deep question in Genesis 1:26-28, Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

God ordained that all people were to be created in the image of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. This word “image” means mirror image. The New Testament confirms this in First John 4:17, “Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world.” Plainly put, we cannot mirror God’s image, and be like Him in this world if we do not understand that we are created in His image. We are the only created being created like Him. And with this great honor comes great responsibility, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”  

This mandate is filled with words of authority and power. But if we do not know we are created in His mirror image we can not activate this God-given authority and power, and this is exactly what the enemy wants–passive and powerless Christians. He fears the Messiah’s words in Luke 10:19, “Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” We are given the authority of Christ to rule and reign as kings and priests on this earth, but we cannot do so effectively if we do not know who we are or that we have been given authority over the enemy. “And have made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign on the earth.” Revelation 5:10.

And one final fear-point of the enemy that I want to state is found in Acts 2: 17-21 from the New King James version. ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy. I will show wonders in heaven above and signs in the earth beneath: blood and fire and vapor of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’”

The enemy fears the fulfillment of this prophesy about the children. He knows that in these last days that the Lord is pouring out His Spirit upon all of us, but especially, a special anointing is being poured out upon the youth of this world to bring in the end-time’s harvest of souls. Our enemy fears the everlasting fruit that they are created for while in their mother’s womb, predestined for before they were knitted in the womb, and anointed for during these last days. These are the main reasons why the enemy is after the children of these days, and seeks to steal, to kill and to destroy them (see John 10:10). 

Let’s pray. 

“Father God, in the name of Your precious and holy Son, Jesus Christ, I plead the power of His blood over the lives of our children, and their children. I declare words of faith that “No weapon formed against them shall prosper.” By words of faith we draw a blood line around them that the enemy cannot penetrate and prosper against them. We make prophetic utterance in their favor that they will know who they are, and they will activate the authority that they have been given, and become the kings and priest that you have ordained them to be for You and for Your glory. And we declare that they work together in harmony with Your Spirit and take the kingdom of God by force and go forth into the harvest fields and present to You a great and everlasting harvest for all of eternity to rejoice over. In Your precious and holy name, I declare these things so, amen and amen.”
