Dear Brothers

Know that I wanted to be with you sharing the Word and then a good time with the pastors and the whole group of There Life in Jesus, but I was unable to attend. When I realized this, I felt saddened. Then I remembered that this happened Paul wanted to visit his brethren of Rome and not power.
I took my Bible and seek the passage (Ro.1.8 -13) that Paul longed to visit the Church of Rome, which is why he prayed, asking God to "open" the way. But although he had proposed several times, for one reason or another could not realize its purpose. The most interesting is the attitude of the Apostle, that far from being lazy or angry, he began to write his message.
So, that nothing could stop the Romans received from his friend some words of encouragement and edification. The lesson seemed good and here I am writing to you this short letter with the message you bring thought.

The defense of the faith

Knowing their pastors and leaders, I know that you have already received a lot of good word on marriage, marital duties, differentiation of roles (the man as a priest and the wife as helper), so let me be of the dangers lurking in recent times the Church.
We all know that Satan is like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5.8) but he did not round the World, because they always have at your disposal. Brothers he stalks the Church, which are the four walls of the building but us.
These are the last days and we know that they are dangerous, all that God has promised through his prophets what we read in the newspapers or see on TV news:

1Now well, keep in mind that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 People will be lovers of self, covetousness, be boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, slanderers, without self control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited and lovers of pleasure more than God. 5 Aparentarán be pious but denying its power of godliness. And from such people turn away! 1 Timothy 3.1 - 5 NIV.

Christian marriage is the last line of defense of the faith. Faith is the foundation of our salvation and our family, because:

             I. Without faith it is impossible to please God. Hebrews 11:6

            II. Without faith it is impossible to live a life of righteousness. Habakkuk 2.3 and not living in the Justice of God will go to hell.

          III. Without faith it is impossible to see the hand of God. In Matthew 17.20 Jesus says that if we had faith as a grain of mustard would do great things as a counterpart without faith can do nothing.

         IV. What more to say in Hebrews 11:1 says that faith alone were the ancients and the whole chapter is a defense of the faith.

"Brothers marriage is in charge of maintaining the faith of the family, the man as a priest and the wife as his helpmeet."

Building the walls of the family

In Nehemiah chapter 2, the Bible records that the city walls were demolished and the inhabitants of Jerusalem were impoverished and exposed to all sorts of dangers for not having defenses. Then Nehemiah organized the people for the job. Today the whole of society is destroyed, demoralized, full of vices and evils. If you carefully read Chapter 3, we see that the whole community participated in the work. That is not the priest left work (today would be the pastors and leaders) but everyone got involved.
There is another interesting feature:

 23 Benjamin and Jasub rebuilt the sector that is in front of their own homes. Azariah son of Ananias Mahseiah and grandson, rebuilt the section that is next to his own home. 24 Bani Henadad son rebuilt the sector that goes from the house of Azariah to the angle, ie, to the corner. 25 Palal Uzay son rebuilt the corner sector faces the tower that protrudes from the royal palace, next to the courtyard of the guard. The adjacent section was rebuilt Pa'rosh Pedai'ah son. Nehemiah 3.23 - 25 NIV.

Each rebuilt part of the wall that was in front of his house, linking his work to that brother! And that's the strategy today: Every one of us must build a wall of faith around the house and support his brothers to build, so that we are all protected from the attacks of the enemy. At the time of Nehemiah the opponents were the Arabs, the Samaritans and the Ammonites. Today's attackers are many more, we will only mention a few:

        I. The drug is sold in the vicinity of schools. If parents do not preach the good and the bad to the kids, they will be exposed to very high risk

     II. Sexual impurities from the media today "encourages" kids to "choose" their gender freely, as if this were no longer defined by their anatomy. It encourages them to homosexuality, in fact there are already teachers and professors transsexuals and transvestites, (the teachers are the first models that children take after their parents). From the United National (is an international movement) is taught to children more than two sexual choices. They promote these behaviors that are "progressive" and look with disapproval face (as "backward") who want to have a family "as God intended".

  III. Marriage is an institution created by God for the development of the family, which in turn is the basis of society. There is a clear intention World governments undermine marriage [1]. In many countries have changed their laws to give the marriage between same sex, able to adopt children. To complete the action, schools teach children new "family types" with two dads or two moms. All this is contrary to the Word of God. In less than a decade, the biblical concept of marriage and family will only survive in homes that are built on the Rock.

 IV. Promotion of idolatry. In Argentina since the Federal Government is promoting indigenous cults from next year and will teach and encourage children to follow the cult of Pachamama [2]. Moreover it is increasingly popular form of witchcraft, divination and imported as Halloween festivities.

Saving Family

Dear friends, Nehemiah organized his people and encouraged yours with these simple words:
"Do not fear them! Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons and daughters, your wives and homes. '4.13 B NIV Nehemiah.
They heed, they set to work and God blessed them with a landslide victory over all his enemies. Despite being less, being tired and humbled Lord worked all his attackers with a devastating defeat.
So it will be with us, the responsibility to defend our home and our children lies in marriage and even those who are with the system of the world are many and mighty, God will give us victory.
Finally brothers, I want to thank Adriana pastors Ripoll Osvaldo and the opportunity to speak to all of you and finally share with the recommendations that the Apostle Paul left written:

6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, so that you can withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
6:14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.
6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;

Ephesians 613-17 RV 60

The Lord has already given us the victory.

God bless you.

There is life in Jesus, a Church open where preaching the Word of God in Freedom only gives the Lord.

" Another possible derivation come from "matreum muniens" meaning the idea of ​​defense and protection of the mother, involving the duty of man to the mother of his children. In any case, the word refers to the matrix matris female where children are conceived.
