The answer may be more education but the question is education in what? Satan is the god of this world [2 Corinthians 4:4] for the moment and his five “I wills” in Isaiah 14:12-15 make it very clear he is not going to give up the fight any time soon. This can be seen in the removal of prayers in public places, Bibles not allowed in many countries and the death and persecution of our Brothers and Sisters in many lands of the world. Every day they lose their jobs, their homes, their Churches, their freedom, their lives and the World body created to protect people - the United Nations - does nothing. So where is this education coming from and what type of education could change this situation?
In the Seven Churches of Asia Yeshua gives clear warning to all who will listen to what is required of those who believe in the truth of the Gospel. [Revelation 2:29] The Words that Yeshua spoke to His disciples were the only type of education that can change lives. “I came to set the captives free”, said Yeshua [Luke 4:18] and all eyes were on Him as He read these words of truth. We have many ministries around the world to people in jails but we have to remember those people are there because they are in a different prison, a spiritual one. They are there because they have followed the father of lies not the Word of truth. [John 17:17] There are many people trapped in a spiritual prison because of the lies they have followed, instead of the Father in Heaven who loves them and wants to set them free to have His peace. [John 14:27] In all of these wars and rumours of wars we can have the only true and lasting peace if we will let our one perfect teacher educate us through His Word. [John 14:26] As the writer C. S. Lewis said, all we need is faith and faith is like diving off a high board into the water. You know the water is going to catch you. When we dive off our comfortable place into the arms of our heavenly Father in faith we know He will be there catching us as we fall at His feet. [Luke 7:38] The world may be trying to remove the Word of God from our work places, our schools and our homes but as it has been said, they can never remove it from our hearts, because the one who loves is leading us at all times, through all wars and rumours of wars. Through all this we can cry out that there is peace in my heart a peace that passes all understanding. [Philippians 4:7]
