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. 2:15)

The very first tool and strategy God has is the promotion of the family. A church is supposed to be a collection of families who have come together. We must promote the family. A family, per the scripture, is a father, mother, and children.

I was in our elementary school, Faith Christian Academy, one day and I was experiencing some serious symptoms. I was walking in faith. My head was throbbing. I must have looked like it too, because in one of the kindergarten classes a little four year old girl looked at me and said, "What's the matter, Pastor?" I said, "I'm taking healing." I didn't think she knew what that meant. She jumped up and took her little hand and slapped it on my body and said, "Devil, come out of my pastor right now in the name of Jesus!" I walked out of the room healed. And I'm the Bishop. That is a godly seed.

God wants a lot of seed like that so that He can have an army that would show the world that Jesus is the only way.

I believe that every church should have a school. If it is not big enough to have a school, they should cooperate with other churches by sending their children to that church's school. People in the nation of God should not send their children to Philistine schools and then expect them to come out with tongue-talking godly principles. It doesn't work that way.

If you want saved, sanctified children that are filled with the Holy Ghost, then your Christian values must be reinforced when they are away from you. They should not them have to battle for their beliefs. Primarily, as soon as they walk in the door of these Philistine schools they are attacked. Other students attack them because they love God. Teachers and administrators attack them because they love God. But if they are in Christian schools where the administrators and teachers are Spirit filled, they are rewarded for worshipping God.

This is not to say that you should segregate your children from the world, but to give them a godly foundation that will prepare them to take on the world when they are adults.
