Satan is afraid, really afraid, of Christians multiplying. He's against our populating, big time. Because the more of these tongue-talking, Bible-quoting, devil-casting-out, dominating believers come along, the faster the return of the Lord and the quicker things are going to get wrapped up around here.

Now, Adam made the wrong choice. He sinned, and because of it everyone born after him is born with that nature of death. Satan has now become god of this world.

Satan thought he had the whole thing locked up. He thought he had God now. Every man that is born after that is born with the nature of sin. God intended that every person born after Adam would be born with all godly characteristics, but now they have the opposite. It looks like God's had it.

God is determined to have a race of people, a nation if you will, who would serve him; and who would operate in his image and likeness; would be blessed, would be fruitful, would multiply and replenish and dominate.

Satan's Strategies
But now Satan gets to populate the earth. Every man born after Adam is born with that nature of sin; and Satan is getting a larger and larger family everyday; that's getting more and more wicked everyday.

Satan developed strategies, because he knew God wanted to populate the earth. He thought he had God shut out; but Jesus came along and defeated the devil. Then God, once again, could have a godly seed, walking in the land. When Satan saw that, Satan said, man, these people will multiply like rabbits, if I don't get them to start thinking the wrong way.

Divorce is one of Satan's strategies. The author of no-fault divorce is the devil. First of all, there's no such thing as no-fault; both of you all are at fault. It takes two to mess up.

Because he understands that the most important unit to building a nation under God is the family. If you can destroy the family, then you can cripple, you can slow down; you can't stop, but you can retard the rate of population of a godly seed.
You know what happens with divorce? Not only is it a tearing apart of two spirits, but it also does severe damage to children. Nobody wants to talk about this any more. It does severe damage to children. There are people, grown folks, still wounded by the divorce of their parents, having trouble handling it.

So, Satan has been attacking the family unit. Doing everything he can to break it up.

Make the Decision
Now I can tell you the first rule of staying married is having made the decision before you got married that you're staying married regardless of what. We see folks who've stayed together through thick and thin.

Marriage does have thick and thin. That's no negative confession. You get two people together, and sometimes they have things they need to deal with. She wants the roll of toilet paper one way, he wants to roll it the other. She wants the windows up at night; you want them down. You want covers on you; she wants them off. You want oatmeal; she wants something else. You want a black car; she wants a bus.

That's human nature. But we said, come hell or high water, no matter what, we are staying together and we're not going to divorce, amen. There were times when Deborah looked at me, and I know she thought she'd never say it, but I know she's said it, "I think I missed God." There were times I looked at her and said, "I missed God." We've both looked at each other and said, "Come out, in the name of Jesus."

So, Satan attacks families. Let's read in Malachi:
Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.

And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.
(Mal. 2:14-15)
Why did God make you to have one wife? That he might have a what? What kind of seed? That he might have a godly seed. God wants born-again, filled with the Holy Ghost, dominating, blessed Christians. To multiply and produce more that are like Him.

So, first thing that you've got to do if you're the devil is to break up the family unit. Because, man, these Christians get to multiplying if they get together and stay together.
