From the car window traveling from Southern to Northern Nevada, there was a very interesting site. Out in the distance was miles of single dust devils that just seemed to spin out from nowhere and then moving across the desert. It was like multiple dancing dust devils surrounded us and occasionally one would shimmy across the highway making itself known to then dissipate on the other side. It was fascinating to watch. At church today, that image came to mind as I watched how I as a single dust devil combined with other dust devils determined to combine to become a powerful tornado in the desert.
When multiple groups come together to walk together to fight for the souls of our children is amazing to watch and to be included in this movement is exciting. I once talked to a church pastor and I asked him back in 2019 "don't you see what is coming?" I saw it during our Covid lockdowns when the curriculum started mutating and legislation being passed in the dark of night. Then back in the schools in 2022, the hammer of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Critical Race Theory, Restorative Justice, Transgender ideology, and Social Emotional Learning combined to change the education of our students forever. So I thought. When my posts were being questioned as other educators were against me using the word "indoctrination" then I knew I was hitting the right button. Now, being part of a church that tells me what I need to hear. "Come and see then go and tell." The telling of truths is outside of the church. Bring people to God, but go fight in the world for souls even in politics and in our public schools.
“When I say to the wicked, ‘You wicked person, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade them from their ways, that wicked person will die for their sin, hold you accountable for their blood” (Ezekiel 33:8).
“To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech” (Proverbs 8:13).
We finished the Book of Mark today at church. The point I got today is that we are not to be spectators in the Great Commission. It is in the part of Jesus' story when we find the tomb is empty. Our pastor stated that Jesus has offered us an empty tomb and it is what we do with what he has done on the cross for us knowing that we will never ever see him in that tomb again. It is finished so he offers a new beginning for us all in the belief he died and rose and he will be returning for his believers to never ever enter our worldly tombs again either. His promise is we will be with Him forever and ever.
Another point made was to look at the tomb as we see our circumstances. An unseen hand rolls the stone away so you come out of the tomb free from whatever is holding you in the darkness of your own tomb. The circumstances of your life. The anger, bitterness, hate, depression, pain, any struggle keeping you in darkness. There is a God who has rolled the stone away. Jesus was in your tomb and He conquered it. If He conquered it then know He goes before you rolling those stones away releasing you into a freedom that he loves you so much so he has offered to atone for you and heal you but you have to be willing to accept and agree to the terms. He will never force you. It is your ultimate decision. Do you believe the stone was rolled away for you?
Prayers you listen to the tug on your heart. He is whispering to you, not demanding you, but feel his tug today and return to Him. He is waiting on you to respond.
Prayers for you and your family everyday.
