But today I am sharing from our Sunday School lesson. What I share may not seem so encouraging except there is peace and promise for those of us who believe that God is in control.
We have been studying Revelation and what the world community may look like as we grow nearer and nearer to the end days. Our teacher reminded us how important it is to "raise up a child in the way he should go..." Proverbs 22:6. It is no guarantee that the child will serve God when grown but the child has a better chance for that than those not raised with Biblical foundations.
Revelation prophesies foretell a "one world order"government. Christians, in America especially where we have been surrounded by freedom and blessings, are watching as our society begins to change. In the 1960s Bibles and Prayer were removed from public school. We became aware of liberal agendas in colleges that would capture our youth at a vulnerable time in their development as individuals. Author Frank Peretti looked at this influence in This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness. Slowly, but surely, government has been intruding into our lives so that our children can be taught what 'they' want them to learn.. More and more public preschools are promoted to take the children out of the home and begin their societal training. This past year or so an educational curriculum known as "Common Core" has been accepted by about 44 states. This program has an agenda and the educators will be evaluated on how well the children respond and learn the "core values." The whole program minimizes free thinking and directs society doctrines/indoctrination.
Even more, now we are allowing Islamic teachings as accepted curriculum in our middle schools. Al Queda and other Saudi Arabia organizations are funding teaching in America. If you are interested you can watch this video:
I found this interesting quote in a 2003 article on Education by Linda Schrock Taylor [source link: http://www.lewrockwell.com/taylor/taylor13.html]
"When an opponent declares, 'I will not come over to your side.' I calmly say, 'Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.'"
~ Adolf HitlerAmerica as we have known it is changing rapidly with educational agendas to teach our children liberal views and even Islamic teachings, and Agenda 21 to control (if not take over) our land. The fox is in the hen house and the enemy marches against our children and our Christian foundations. Be aware, be prepared; prepare your children.
.I was looking for a video for the song "The Battle is not yours, God said it's Mine."
I did not find that but I found this instead:
Arms That Hold the Universe.
Isaiah 46:9-10 (NIV)
9 Remember the former things, those of long ago;
I am God, and there is no other;
I am God, and there is none like me.
10 I make known the end from the beginning,
from ancient times, what is still to come.
I say, ‘My purpose will stand,
and I will do all that I please.’
Thank you Lord for giving me faith and assurance in an all-sovereign God.
