1. Building life on the right foundation.

a. (ref. Luke 6:43-49) the foundation you build your life on determines the fruit that your life produces.

b. (Ps. 11:3) “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

c. The chaos, rapid decline and destruction of the family, the church, our nation and society at large is the result of the foundation of all these institutions is missing – real men.

B. Where Are the Real Men?

1. (Gen. 3:8-9 NIV) the first question in the Bible and the question that still plagues our society today is “man, where are you?”

a. (Jer. 5:1; Eze. 22:30) When real men don’t assume their God-given purpose, priority and position society crumbles.

b. (Gen. 18:17-19) Abraham, Sodom & Gomorrah

c. (Exo. 23:17; 34:23-24) “Three times in the year all your males shall appear…”

~Messed up man, family, church, neighborhood, city, county state, country, and world.

2. What is the Biblical definition of a man? 

a. Male-hood – is birth sexual identity, gender, biological, XY chromosomes. (ref. Gen. 1:27)

b. Boyhood – immature, irresponsible and dependent. 

c. Manhood – is the male who has taken the responsibility to operate under divine authority.

~Biblical manhood is defined by how a male is aligned spiritually.

~(1 Cor. 11:3 AMP; Gen. 1:24)

~(1 Cor. 15:45-47) the last Adam.
