This article will be about American education.
Imagine being caught in a California brush fire with no place to go. That is what the coming of the Lord is going to be like. The prophet Malachi describes the coming of the Lord in just such a way –
“For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up,” Says the LORD of hosts, “That will leave them neither root nor branch.” – Malachi 4:1
Fortunately, there will be a way of escape –
“But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; And you shall go out You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this,” says the LORD of hosts. And grow fat like stall-fed calves.” – Malachi 4:2-3
So God does have a way of protecting His chosen from the raging fire that is coming. To those who fear My name is the qualifier! Unfortunately, that does not include those lukewarm Christians who confess the Lord’s Name on Sunday but live like the world the rest of the week. There will be a separation between those who say they are Christians and those who really are living like they are Christians. God has placed a constellation in the heavens as a witness to this time – it is called the Constellation Auriga, which is the Third Deacon (one that accompanies and further explains) of the constellation Taurus.
Auriga is seen as a mighty Shepherd holding a she-goat in his arm and cradling two baby sheep in his lap. The goat in his arm is grasping his neck and looking back at the constellation Taurus, which represents the Lord coming as Judge back to the earth. God declares that the truth will be confirmed by two witnesses and here we have the witness in the heavens and the witness of His word –
“Behold, the Lord GOD shall come with a strong hand, And His arm shall rule for Him; Behold, His reward is with Him, And His work before Him. He will feed His flock like a shepherd; He will gather the lambs with His arm, and carry them in His bosom, and gently lead those who are with young.” – Isa. 40:10-11
Now back to the prophet Malachi. After his declaration that the Lord will rescue those who fear His name, Malachi states –
“Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments.” – Mal. 4:4
Mt. Horeb was where God gave Moses the Ten Commandments. God then stated –
“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.” – Mal. 4:5-6
This is why every Passover always leaves a seat open for Elijah and one of the young children goes to the door and looks outside to see if Elijah is coming. And what will Elijah do when he comes? He will restore the function of the fathers to their children and the children back to the truth the fathers teach them. That speaks of education! The fathers will begin to do what God commanded them from Mt. Horeb –
“Only take heed to yourself, and diligently keep yourself, lest you forget the things your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life. And teach them to your children and your grandchildren, especially concerning the day you stood before the LORD your God in Horeb, when the LORD said to me, ‘Gather the people to Me, and I will let them hear My words, that they may learn to fear Me all the days they live on the earth, and that they may teach their children.’ – Deut. 4:9-10
As the United States was founded, it took these truths to heart and our leaders believed and practiced them. In the words of our third President, Thomas Jefferson –
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever…” – Thomas Jeferson, 3rd. U.S. President and signer of the Constitution.
The truths written in the Word of God, the Holy Bible, are the only map to our success as a country. But we need to take back our education system and our government which have surrendered to the lies of socialism and communism. And the American Church needs to wake up and begin telling the truth. God told Malachi what kind of Pastor He wants, one like Levi –
“Then you shall know that I have sent this commandment to you, That My covenant with Levi may continue,” says the LORD of hosts. My covenant was with him, one of life and peace, And I gave them to him that he might fear Me; So, he feared Me And was reverent before My name. The law of truth was in his mouth, and injustice was not found on his lips. He walked with Me in peace and equity and turned many away from iniquity. For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, and people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.” – Malachi 2:4-7
Pastors need to stop thinking of themselves as ministers of some denomination or even ministers of the people. They are messengers only of the LORD! And they are beholden to HIm to tell the truth, that’s Scriptural truth, social truth, and governmental truth! Many today are speaking about revival, and we do need a revival of the truth! And among the areas of truth, perhaps the most important area of truth, at least according to Malachi, is in education.
According to Epoch Times article Behind the Public School Exodus of 1.4 million Children now is certainly the time for the Church to promote Home Schooling by small groups and home school groups and teaching about parental responsibility to teach their children the ways of the Lord. And I am not talking about just one-hour Sunday School classes but complete help on the curriculum and teaching methods available. We are in the last days and we are in trouble! Now is the time to take back who we are as Christian Americans as the following video shows.
Some may think this article is too ‘political’ but I would say God is political and Jesus will have the “government upon His shoulders”! We are to be the salt of this society and that implies telling the truth to it and to our children. Our public education system has been captured by a foreign god, the god of humanism and communism and those Christians who are still sending their children into it are sacrificing them to foreign gods! And the church that allows this without speaking up is just like the Pharisaical system of Jesus’ day – they refuse to receive the truth and they stand in the doorway blocking it from their perishers.
Now that I have vented my frustration, I want to finish this article with a video about an educational topic all Christians should become familiar with – the Constellations.
I hope every Christian parent begins teaching their children at home the truths God has left for us to learn, and that includes truth in the heavens and truth in the Word of God, the Bible.
