Why Ninja Sheep Should Educate Their Children at Home

This post addresses the 7 Mountain Paradigm that Lance Wallnau teaches about and how we should go secretly into the Education mountain and gain influence over it.

How do ninjas train? Do they go to a large, public institution to be trained? I don’t think so. We are supposed to be ninja sheep, right? So shouldn’t we be trained in a private, separate school instead of a large, public school that happens to be in our neighborhood paid for by taxpayers?

Shouldn’t we have specialized training in spiritual warfare, biblical wisdom, and godly character? And shouldn’t parents be mentors to their own children to help them discover their gifts and talents and callings and election and help them get the training and instruction they need to increase their skills and knowledge in whatever God is calling them to do?

This would be a mini-church in the home. Training the next generation in specialized training centers called home. With mentors called Mom and Dad.

Then we won’t lose so many of our children to liberal, secular humanistic thought. They won’t turn against their parents’ ideas and teaching and beliefs. They won’t be turned into socialists because of being exposed to that teaching day in and day out and propagandized and indoctrinated by professors of socialistic, liberal, humanistic thought. They won’t be swayed or persuaded by professors that ridicule the beliefs of their parents and the generations that came before them. They will be grounded in the faith of their fathers. Or at least they will be more likely to if the groundwork of faith in God has been laid in their hearts by their mothers and fathers every day at home. They will have a foundation to stand on that includes the word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit in their hearts.

We can train them up in the way that they should go. We can teach them God’s ways and principles. Then when they are older and mature enough to stand against false teaching and temptations of the enemy, we can send them out as arrows aimed at the target that God has set for them. We can shoot them toward the mountain that God has called them to, and they will be more likely to hit the mark than those that have been trained by godless teachers who mock and criticize God and their parents and tell them that their parents are old-fashioned fuddy duddies with outmoded, outdated, obsolete beliefs that are no longer relevant.

This is a summary of my reasons for believing that homeschooling is the best form of education for Christian parents to provide for their ninja sheep children.

In Lieu of Halloween We Do Freedom Day

https://www.periscope.tv/w/1RDxloXDnErJL#

As a Christian mom, trying to decide what to do about Halloween can be difficult. We know about the origins of the holiday. We know about the terrible practices of occult groups on that night. When I think about those things I feel more like grieving and praying than celebrating.

I prayed about it and decided to do something altogether different. I knew that some Christians celebrate Martin Luther’s birthday and the Reformation, and some have Harvest parties at churches. But I feel that the Lord led us to celebrate something that we feel very strongly about. And that is FREEDOM!

The link at the top of this post is to a video on Periscope.tv in which I explain some of the things we do to celebrate Freedom Day. I have also written other posts on my blog about Freedom Day under the category, Freedom Day.

My younger kids are excitedly preparing their lists of questions for me to ask them on Freedom Day. I have already bought lots of CANDY. They are counting down the days until Oct. 31. I have read some books about Freedom to them. We talk about how important Freedom is. One of the very important Freedoms that we have in this country is Freedom of Religion. Another is Freedom of Speech. And under these Freedoms, we have Freedom to homeschool our children. Woohoo, one of our favorites!

Please watch the above video, and leave a comment. Do you think this is something your family would like to do instead of Halloween? Would your kids like to try this? What do you think?

All of you, have a wonderful Autumn!

Enjoy the changing seasons and the winds of change that God is sending as things get better and better!

Autumn blessings to all of you!

Statue of Liberty’s Message for the Day We Are Living In

Americans Value Freedom

A few weeks ago, we celebrated the 130th anniversary of the Statue of Liberty coming to America. The statue was originally meant to be a gift from the people of France to the people of America. A group of French private citizens were discussing how much they admired American democracy. One of them, Edouard Laboulaye, presented the idea of a gift to honor the enduring friendship between America and France. He proposed that they present to America a monument to liberty in 1876, in honor of America’s 100th anniversary of its independence.

They wanted to commemorate the brotherhood and unity the two nations had always enjoyed. They hoped that by drawing attention to the ideas of liberty and democracy at this specific time in France’s history that it might influence the kind of government that France would have in the future. They knew that it would take cooperation between the two nations to accomplish such a massive project. The people of France paid for and built the statue. The people of America paid for and built the pedestal. Raising enough money was difficult for each country. It took many years for them to raise all the money they needed.

The sculptor who fashioned the Statue of Liberty named her Liberty Enlightening the World.

The torch represents the light of liberty she would bring to the world.

On the tablet that the statue holds in her left hand is inscribed, July 4, 1776 in Roman numerals.

At her feet lay a broken shackle and chain symbolizing Lincoln’s abolition of slavery.

Close-up-of-broken-shackles-on-Statue-of-Libertys-right-foot-Lady-Liberty-axe-chains

There is a broken shackle around her ankle, a broken chain that extends around the bottom or her robe and an ax head.

This reminds me of the Eddie James song – Freedom.

Listen to it here:

He sings this line in the song:

“No more shackles, no more chains, no more bondage. I am free!”

 

Liberty is a universal yearning, not just a national symbol.

What did the French people of 130 years ago admire about America? They admired our Constitution and the liberty and representative government that it established. They admired our freedom from a monarch, a dictator, an oppressor.

 

They admired Abraham Lincoln and the way he held the country together in the midst of war and the fact that we abolished slavery so that everybody in America would have freedom and liberty. No more slavery in America. Everybody was free.

Is America still like that?

Are we still a free country?

Do we still love freedom?

Are we still a nation to be admired?

 

What does liberty mean?

Christians Value Freedom

America was founded on the principles of freedom of religion and speech and conscience. Christians are great fans of freedom.  Christians are set free from sin and the bondage that comes with it. Freedom does not mean the absence of authority or the right to do whatever one pleases—far from it.  Freedom is a moral or spiritual condition; freedom means abandoning a life of sin to embrace the teachings of Christ. What is often called “Christian liberty” means leading a moral life.

But now –

Deep darkness is covering America.

Men love the darkness more than the light.

 

John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

 

 

People are confused

 

They are confused about freedom.

They don’t know right from wrong anymore. They are giving up freedoms out of fear. At the same time, they have taken liberties with liberty. They think that they are happier when they have nobody telling them what they can do. They have thrown off moral restraints that are helpful and protective.

They are using the law to promote lawlessness, like abortion and gay marriage.

At the same time, they want the government to take care of them, so they let the government regulate personal freedoms, like whether to own guns, whether to give vaccines to their children, and how to educate their children.

They are making laws that take away religious freedom.

 

They are embracing a religion that strips freedom away from women especially. And rejecting the beliefs that have strengthened and supported families and parents and children. And taking away our freedom to practice our Christian beliefs.

The world is watching. They are shaking their heads, wondering why America is throwing away its liberty, its freedom. They are seeing a nation that is under a strong delusion, given over to a reprobate mind. Perhaps they are learning something by watching what’s happening to us.

Jesus is the light of the world.

 

We are the light of the world.

We Christians are called to be a light in the darkness. We are supposed to light the way for those in the darkness. We know that light overcomes darkness. When you turn on a light in a dark room, it’s not dark in the room anymore.

 

 

A city on a hill cannot be hidden.

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matt. 5:14-16

Arise, shine;
For your light has come!
And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.
2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,
And deep darkness the people;
But the Lord will arise over you,
And His glory will be seen upon you.
3 The Gentiles shall come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.
Isaiah 60:1-3

Statue of Liberty Appeal to Heaven
The more sin abounds the more grace abounds.

 

We are called to lead people out of darkness.

We are called to lead them to the cross.

 

Only God Can Give True Freedom

The cross leads people to freedom from sin, darkness, superstition, selfishness, addiction, and despair.

Whom the Son sets free is free indeed.  John 8:36

The world hates us because it first hated Jesus. They hate us and are trying to silence us.

 

But “We are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matt. 5:14

Attention is coming to the Statue of Liberty for such a time as this.

 

Because freedom is important and worth dying for. Freedom is something to celebrate.

 

And true freedom comes only through the cross of Christ.
