THE LAND OF ZEBULUN AND THE LAND OF NAPHTALI, BY THE WAY OF THE SEA, BEYOND THE JORDAN, GALILEE OF THE GENTILES— “THE PEOPLE WHO WERE SITTING IN DARKNESS SAW A GREAT LIGHT, AND THOSE WHO WERE SITTING IN THE LAND AND SHADOW OF DEATH, UPON THEM A LIGHT DAWNED.” From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” — Matthew 4
As they were speaking to the people, the priests and the captain of the temple guard and the Sadducees came up to them, being greatly disturbed because they were teaching the people and proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection from the dead. And they laid hands on them and put them in jail until the next day, for it was already evening. But many of those who had heard the message believed; and the number of the men came to be about five thousand.— Acts 4
In another place it says that all who live godly shall suffer persecution. It certainly is that way in our world today. A father in Canada was jailed for not giving permission for his daughter to receive the puberty blockers his ex-wife wanted prescribed to her.
We must become militant in our resistance to the darkness. Paul said to the Ephesians, “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you.”
Let me tell you a story of what can happen in the government schools that I know first hand. This high school had a teacher’s assistant that would groom the high school girls to “pose” for pictures in his studio. The school had teachers that would promote drug use in the classroom. They would promote “Lifeboat” exercises which force participants to choose which members of society should be eliminated for the common good (except murderers and other criminals were not ever in the lifeboat).
Oh, and that teacher that was going after his female students? He kept his job for years after his actions were revealed because the teacher’s union fought for him.
Schools should reflect values of their community and the higher values of a Christian culture, not the “progressive” ideologies of socialist Ivy League universities.
And all this was going on in my high school, 50 years ago. The nightmare of insanity that passes for education today is truly, “disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret.”
Join the resistance! It may land you in jail (real jail, not Facebook censorship jail). But there’s nothing shameful about going to jail for supporting righteousness.
