The Song of Moses and Education
January 25, 2012
The question surrounding education is one of purpose. Is education intended for the purpose of liberating the mind so it can soar like an eagle, or is it to capture the mind with agendas of Secularism, which trap it in darkness? Are we placing our children’s minds in the darkness of solitary confinement due to a kind of blindness that comes from Secular Humanism?
Moses gave a marvelous description of a ‘fat-cat nation’, which described the nature of the Israel to come, after having received the abundance of the land, which God wanted to give His people upon entering the Promised Land and their numbers and possessions had been increased. It perfectly describes latter-day, spiritual Israel in America, as well, after God has blessed her with the riches of this world.
“But Jeshurun grew fat and kicked; you grew fat, you grew thick, you are covered with fat; then he forsook God who made him, and scornfully esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
They provoked Him to jealousy with foreign gods; with abominations they provoked Him to anger. They sacrificed to demons, not to God, to gods they did not know, to new gods, new arrivals that your fathers did not fear. Of the Rock who begot you, you are unmindful, and have forgotten the God who fathered you.
And when the Lord saw it, He spurned them, because of the provocation of His sons and His daughters. And He said: ‘I will hide My face from them, I will see what their end will be, for they are a perverse generation, children in whom is no faith (Deuteronomy 32:15-20).’”
We are raising a generation in whom there is no faith because they have been denied the Word of God’s truth, which we have allowed the enemy to call religion, a most incredibly stupid thing, since the God of truth hates, loathes and despises religion. He hates it enough to forbid it in His First Commandment to His people, Israel.
The above Bible passage comes from the Song of Moses, which warns Israel what will happen in the latter days. Here is the verdict, which has come down on the double camp of Jacob – Israel and spiritual Israel.
“For they are a nation void of counsel, nor is there any understanding in them. Oh, that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, and the Lord had surrendered them? For their rock is not like our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. For their vine is of the vine of Sodom and of the fields of Gomorrah; their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter. Their wine is the poison of serpents, and the cruel venom of cobras.
‘Is this not laid up in store with Me, sealed up among My treasures? Vengeance is Mine, and recompense; their foot shall slip in due time; for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things to come hasten upon them (Deuteronomy 32:28-35).’”
Why have we removed the Bible from the classroom? We are told by the religious crew that it is a religious book, offensive to certain religious people of certain religious persuasions. It is not a book of religion at all, and why does the church accept such statements when even our Constitutions declare it to be a book of truth? It cannot be both religious matter and truth. They are incompatible in God’s eyes. He forbade religious practices and the religious worship of religious idols in the temple and the nation, which correlates to being forbidden in the church and the nation today.
The problem lies, as ever, with the false understanding of the word church. When Jesus created His church, it consisted of His apostles sent out to spread the gospel of truth to all nations and to fish for men to join the saved body of Christ. The Roman Caesar, Constantine, turned the church into a building program to house the Roman counterfeit religion of the Babylonian system of empires; he set about to combine it with the growing numbers following the Way of Jesus. By combining the paganism of one with the message of the true church, adjusted where necessary to serve his purposes, he successfully planted the seed from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the heart of Jesus’ church. All that remained to complete his dastardly deed was to give the name of the church of Jesus Christ to the religious system of Christianity, by calling it ‘the church’.
It had become a full-blown religion with its name embedding the Messiah-ship of the Christ into the Romanism of the empire to become a new ‘good ship lollipop’, which had taken the apostolic church of Jesus Christ into the captivity of religion. It was to inherit Antioch’s mocking term for the members of the Way, which was widely used in Asia Minor. Of course, Jesus never used such a term and, at the time He established His church, told His apostles to not call Him the Christ. He was much more than Israel’s Messiah. He was the Savior of the world.
Is there a law prohibiting the teaching of truth to our children? Of course not, and the so-called church should be demanding that the Bible of truth be returned to our children. This was the purpose for which Harvard, the first college in America, was created, and from which she has strayed beyond recognition. The educational system in Ontario, Canada, was introduced by Egerton Ryerson, a preacher of the Bible, who, like the ecclesiastical fathers of Harvard University, wanted the truth of God to be combined with the study of the arts and sciences.
Indeed we have provoked God to jealousy by allowing foreign gods in this, His country, where He rules from sea to sea. And what do the foreigners demand in the name of religion, if not that we forsake our God because it offends them who believe in wood and rock, which cannot save them or our children from God’s fire judgment? How could we possibly want to sacrifice our God for the demons, new gods and new arrivals to this land, of which our Fathers had no fear or interest whatsoever? Yet this is what the foreigners demand of our school system, so that they and their gods are not offended.
How could we have allowed our children to forsake our Rock for the dead gods of wood and stone, when our Rock is the One, who strikes ships cruising in seawater, tears them apart and allows the evil, spiritual waters to fill them with death? Do we want our children to be on a carnival cruise of witchcraft, or do we want them in the apostolic boat with Jesus who can take them safely through any storm?
Wake up, America, and demand your rights as a country under God! Stand up to the serpent so it does not wrap itself around the necks of our children who depend on us to protect them! Are you too busy to do so, or are you merely a couch potato with a bottle and a television guide, too drugged to take action? Are we not the product of God’s bountiful blessings, which He has lavished upon us as those of whom Moses spoke over three millennia ago, warning us about our resulting ingratitude as a people?
“For the Lord will judge His people and have compassion on His servants, when He sees that their power is gone, and there is no one remaining, bond or free. He will say: ‘Where are their gods, the rock in which they sought refuge? Who ate the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offering? Let them rise and help you, and be your refuge (Deuteronomy 32:36-38).’”
