Holy Fatherhood and Motherhood
The parenting of children after the Zionic pattern is one of the most sacred stewardships of fathers and mothers. Learning to balance love with discipline is an important ingredient of their upbringing. Teaching children to pray together with the family and in secret should be started at a young age. Parents are to create a love of nature in their children. If they are raised in purity they should learn responsibility and commitment early and beencouraged to marry young, as was the tradition in Israel. The home should be a miniature Zion [Århus, Denmark].
1. The Word of the Lord unto the mothers and fathers of Zion: great and precious are your children, for they are your heritage.
2. Blessed are the fathers and mothers of the Lord who teach and love their children in all diligence, for they shall receive the reward of the fathers, which is the Church of the Firstborn.
Discipline and Love
3. Blessed are the fathers and mothers who learn to balance discipline with love, for their children shall rise up and call them blessed1.
4. Blessed is the child of love who knoweth the ways of the Lord, for he shall grow in peace and wisdom, and shall never lack.
5. Let Zion organise her households into living temples, following after all the precepts of the Lord, that I might bless her, and gather her into places of safety.
Daily Instruction and Prayer
6. Ye shall gather with your children early in the morning to pray2, to sing the praises of your God, and to instruct them in the ways of holiness.
7. And ye shall [also] do this in the evening before they retire to their beds, that the peace of Heaven may be upon them, and in them, in their sleep and in their awakening.
8. Ye shall teach them to pause at the noonday to pray unto their Father inHeaven and to thank Him for His loving kindness, whether they be alone or not3.
9. And ye shall teach them to pray in secret (Mt.6:6), from the youngest unto the oldest, that they may commune with Me in secret and begin to learn the mysteries of Heaven.
Early Spiritual Education
10. Ye shall teach your children from an early age that their roots may grow deep and strong in the holiness of the Lord.
11. And ye shall follow the pattern ordained in the Holy Scriptures, teaching them to do the works of Abraham (Jn.8: 39).
Commune with Nature
12. Teach them to commune with nature and to understand the handiwork of God, and they shall grow up with tenderness and strength.
13. The child that respecteth and honoureth the Word of God shall be able to endure all things in the world; and great tribulations are coming, saith the Lord.
14. Therefore see to it that your children become like unto the children of Abraham, and not like unto the children of Lot who were swallowed up into Babylon because they were not taught the whole Law4.
15. And abide ye also the pattern of the Firstborn, that your children may be preserved in the flood of fires and not be destroyed by the evil one.
Build Zion at Home
16. Behold, if ye will do these things in all diligence and faith, nothing deflecting you from your course, Zion shall arise in your homes and within the New Covenant5.
17. Seek not excuses to avoid these things for ye know not the consequences unto your children for whom ye are their gods, or judges, for ye are called to be their parents as though their Heavenly Father lived in the flesh amongst them.
18. Then shall the children of Zion arise pure and holy, being spared the agonies of the sins of the fathers, that they might marry young and walk in the paths of righteousness all their days.
Obey the Lord's Statutes
19. Do all the things I have commanded you and your families shall spiritually live, saith the Lord, and your hearts shall be filled with rejoicing.
20. Delay not that ye may lose no opportunity to sow the seeds of love in your children for their eternal welfare. Even so. Amen.
