MALACHI 4:5-6 "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse."
We are seeing today
...fathers' affections diverted and families divided
....marriage being redefined
....children growing up with hurts and deficits; confused about their identity and destiny.
Lest we leave behind a generation that curses its father and doesn't bless its mother, something has to be done NOW.
