Dear Partners, 

 

The enemy has set his sights on your family. Satan will do everything in his power to tear down the walls of spiritual protection around those you love.  Already, ultra-liberal forces in this nation have crumbled the walls of morality … of faith … and of traditional marriage and family. 

 

When your children or grandchildren walk through the school doors next fall, the enemy is waiting to attack with: Indoctrination into the homosexual lifestyle! No prayer in schools! Explicit sex education that ignores abstinence as an option! Boys and Girls using the same restrooms, locker rooms and showers!

 

As a father of five, and new grandfather of two (almost!), I am outraged and concerned for the future of my children … and yours. And it’s not just in our public schools. Our court system has become a place where justices legislate anti-moral, anti-faith views from the bench on a regular basis.

 

What kind of nation will be left for future generations? A place where the slaughter of millions of unborn children is accepted? A country that denies believers the right to publicly display their faith? That’s not good enough for my family! Today, I draw a line in the sand. I’m not going to stand in the shadows, waiting for our children and families to be destroyed. I WILL FIGHT FOR FAMILY VALUES … and I ask you to join me.

 

I am committed to teaching god’s word on the issues attacking our families!

 

This is a plan and a vision that God has burned into my heart and soul—to attack that which attacks our families and to rebuild the walls of righteousness in America. We cannot give up … this is no time to lie down in defeat and let the enemy march right into our homes. There is a cause worth fighting for and it is your family! It can be done! Nehemiah and the people of Israel did it. Read in Nehemiah about the determination of God’s people to rebuild the Wall of Jerusalem. In chapter 4, while in the midst of working on the walls, they were threatened by enemy attacks. They didn’t stop their work, and they didn’t leave their families unprotected. They kept working with one hand and took up weapons with the other!

 

“… and I set the people according to their families, with their swords, their spears, and their bows. … Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses. … Those who built on the wall, and those who carried burdens, loaded themselves so that with one hand they worked at construction, and with the other held a weapon” (Nehemiah 4:13-14, 17 NKJV).

 

Let me be perfectly clear. There are two critical works at hand: working on the walls of our family; building a strong foundation of faith, covering them in prayer, and filling them with the Word. But we also have to take up our weapons in the other hand and defend against the enemy attacks! If the church does not make our families a priority, who will? If you don’t make YOUR family a priority, who will? Throughout the Bible, we see it. Job prayed over each of his children every day and sacrificed for them without fail. Noah made sure his family was safely on the Ark.

 

I want to help you make sure your family doesn’t miss the boat. This is how:

 

  • We will attack what is attacking our families through bold messages on Kingdom Connection broadcast.
  • I will equip you to apply God’s Word over your life and your family’s.
  • We will fight for those who are unable to fight for themselves through our outreach programs.

 

We will carry our attack into the very seed of evil by expanding our coverage into markets beyond Christian television and reaching into secular markets across the U.S. Our broadcast will be salt and light—“Salt is good, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will you season it?” (Mark 9:50).

 

WHILE WE ARE FIGHTING FOR MORALITY AND FREEDOM HERE, CHILDREN AND FAMILIES IN HAITI ARE FIGHTING TO SURVIVE.

 

We need your prayers and your financial support, so together we can attack the enemy who is attacking or moral values and religious freedoms here … and be the gospel in action to our brothers and sisters in the most desolate corners of the earth. Haiti is one of those places that comes to mind when I think of fighting for your life. Haiti is barely two hours away from the coast of Florida, yet children are dying daily from malnutrition. In many cases, even if families could afford food, there simply isn’t enough available. That’s why EVERY MONTH Kingdom Connection partners work together to send 272,000 meals to Haiti. The food we send serves more than 70 organizations in that country feeding starving children.

 

Matthew chapter 25:35 says, “For I was hungry and you gave Me food to eat. I was thirsty and you gave Me water to drink . . .” and it goes on to say they ask, ‘When, Lord did we do these things for you?’ And here’s what gets me, For sure, I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of My brothers, you have done it to Me” (v.40).

 

The children in Haiti are desperate. They are living and eating out of a literal garbage dump. Read the letter from our missionary Bobby Burnett. When we reach out and provide and care for these children, helping them fight for one more day, it’s as if we are doing it unto Jesus. Will you join the team fighting for family everywhere? I ask you to prayerfully become a member of our Fight for Your Family team at one of these levels of giving to help continue doing the work God has called us to.  Will you accept the challenge?

We have no time to waste in this important effort.

 

Fighting for Your family,

Jentezen Franklin

 

P.S. As Nehemiah told God’s people, if you will stand up and fight for God’s sake, He will fight for you: “Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, rally to us there. Our God will fight for us” (Nehemiah 4:20).  It is a promise that you can count on. Please give your best gift as we “attack” the issues that are attacking our families!
