Fields White To Harvest

 

 

Lord, I thought I knew you,

   but know the winds have changed.

Tossed away, will you find me?

   Can still , my heart be sustained?

Just me and you when things were new,

then the season's storms blew by.

   Did I forget to worship you?

 

Will you come, Lord Jesus to gather us- your sheep.

   For the days grow long and still,

If we watch and wait, will you hear us yet-

   Can we stand strong to do you will?

 

 The wheat has been blowing in that field,

   While the laborers are so few.

What then, now are we waiting for?

   Can hardened hearts become like new?

 

 Safely can we stay behind you,

   as we march with your trumpet sound?

Or- have we stayed and hid so long now,

   That our roots dry underground?

 

 I pray Lord that you will find me.

   I pray not to be ashamed.

I seek you when it's early Lord.

   I pray not to fall away.

 

So come Lord Jesus come quickly-

   The terrible day is at hand.

I pray we'll all be steadfast.

   So you may strengthen our spirits ,

as we stand.

Steps To Help When Going To See Your Pastor About Common Core

More and more people are looking at what to do against Common Core.  They are also learning that Charter Schools is not the answer as it is like Common Core (CSCOPE in Tx.), taking away PARENTAL AUTHORITY and that is not acceptable.  Sooner or later School Choice will be pushed as The Choice but already experience has shown that more private schools are aligned to Common Core and certainly Charter Schools will so there is really no such thing as School Choice.

It is time to make a stand.  Public education has been broken down because we have not been involved.  We have trusted, or been too apathetic or too busy.  Many reasons and some good,  led majority of Americans to be uninvolved.  But no longer can we afford it.  This quote ought to wake most parents up--

“The goal is to reach kids before they absorb their parents’s values. By middle school it’s too late.”

Many of us have long known that not only the teaching of immoral sexual practices in school but the teaching of those things at younger and younger ages has been specifically targeted to evade parental values.

This video is a must watch because "It's Perfectly Normal" (approved supplemental book in Illinois for 10 yr old and yet not fit for prisoners) and other books permeating on school shelves and/or online will lead to more sexualization of your kids.  They are being led to the path of addiction in this case sexual addiction (perversion) under the lie of children's need to know.

I learned from a national group named--CURE that there are many books from Pre-K on up which is really part of an anti-bias curriculum.  So we have to get beyond the lie that this is not happening (you will when you watch It's Perfecty Normal).  The books we read in the past are now being removed and replaced with newer books--as after all if you want to change America--it begins with the mind.   And now with schools letting children read their Accelerated Reading books online--who knows what children are reading?  Shockingly many of the books our children have access to read in school and/or online have very sexual overtones and are very filthy.  I can't even name them.  Please go to CURE's website to get more info on them.

How can we fight it? 

  • With many prayers. Please cover the children daily--before they go to school and before they do homework and before they go to bed.  Pray over them and let them hear or if they are old enough to read God's Word (even a paragraph is good).  There is something very healing about it and very soothing.  Reading the Holy Bible led to deeper, higher, thinking skills for our founders.  And as  Professor Sandra Stotsky who is the foremost Academic on ELA (the ELA expert that was on the National Validation Committee and would not sign off on Common Core)--it is like reading Shakespeare and she  says it's great to let them read it!!!  Bring a praying friend with you at the meeting.  Ask Pastor if it's ok if you pray first to open the meeting.
  • Join a Stop Common Core group in your state (they all have a fb page) such as this one for Alabama.  Go to Cure for help in finding them.
  • Churches can share information and parents need to know--so they can defend their child!

Example of how you can talk to the Pastor (food for thought):

First ask the Pastor if he remembered how parents could go to their local school boards if they had a problem with what was being taught in school and they usually say yes.  Tell them that is no longer the case.  Share with them that there was a Race To The Top Application for Fed grant $$ that was given to all states around Nov 2009.  Because states were desperate for money most applied within two months.  In the application, they would get points for agreeing to certain things--most importantly that they would give up their own state's standards for what was called Common Core Standards (which were copyrighted and you can't change anything can only add up to 15%). 

Let Pastor read a minute the front of brochure.  Then point to the part where I quote the experts on the back such as Prof. Jim Milgram and Prof. Sandra Stostky (who I say the whole country should be listening to the most.)

Then tell Pastor about how they want us all to think this is just about academics and I point to the brochure and let them read the words about the National Sexuality Standards--"Students need opportunities to engage in cooperative and active learning strategies, and sufficient time must be allocated for students to practice skills relating to sexuality education."


I read out loud to them the part on the brochure about Planned Parenthood wanting to be our children's sex experts. And I follow with the inside of brochure on the observations from Mental Health Therapist.

We have seen miracles as if the Pastor was prepared ahead of time. I think of Habakkuk 2:1-4 as if the Pastors had been waiting for this time:

I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved.

And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.

Try it and be surprised--but always cover it in prayer first and have someone praying over your meeting.  I have a feeling God has been talking to the Pastors and their hearts are ready to hear from you.  They need to hear from someone in their flock!  Please don't wait--let it be you--God makes all the difference and will delight you with His help.  May the Lord bless you.  It is time for America to seek God and ask for His forgivenes.  He is good and His love endures forever...

 

Hear the word of the Lord, you Israelites,
    because the Lord has a charge to bring
    against you who live in the land:
“There is no faithfulness, no love,
    no acknowledgment of God in the land.
There is only cursing,a]">[a] lying and murder,
    stealing and adultery;
they break all bounds,
    and bloodshed follows bloodshed.
Because of this the land dries up,
    and all who live in it waste away;
the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky
    and the fish in the sea are swept away.

“But let no one bring a charge,
    let no one accuse another,
for your people are like those
    who bring charges against a priest.
You stumble day and night,
    and the prophets stumble with you.
So I will destroy your mother—
    my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge.

“Because you have rejected knowledge,
    I also reject you as my priests;
because you have ignored the law of your God,
    I also will ignore your children.

 

Hosea 4:1-6

After this --hope you will go to your local school board next.  God is great and will be with you.  And tell them about what's happening with New York (hear this about a Superintendent that spoke up)--it's gonna be a tsunami and it's coming to your state:

 

Concerned parents still on the fence about "refusing" the state tests, read this. Perhaps one of the best rebuttals of the new exams and the nonsense that has followed them.

Dr. William Johnson: "To hell with these scores. They’re not informing us in any way; they’re not giving us any new information. In fact, what they’re doing is serious damage. Kids who had a [Level] 3 last year and ended up with a [Level] 1 this year, how do I tell them they can’t read, when in fact we know they can?”

"According to Johnson, however, King sent an email last week to all of the state’s superintendents, telling them not to use the scores for anything. “It should not be incorporated into APPR, nor should it be used to inform decisions about whether teachers should or should not be here next year, or should or should not get teacher improvement plans,” Johnson said. “So we’re living right now through a time that I can only describe as a theater of the absurd.”"

By Alex Costello acostello@liherald.com New York state released the results of its new tests last week and, as expected, scores for students all over the state, including Rockville Centre, ….

If those are not enough and you are not convinced that you need to do something--this might just do it:

The Psalm
103

Praise for the LORD's Benefits
A Psalm of David.

1  Bless the LORD, O my soul:
        
and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
2  Bless the LORD, O my soul,
        
and forget not all his benefits:
3  who forgiveth all thine iniquities;
        
who healeth all thy diseases;
4  who redeemeth thy life from destruction;
        
who crowneth thee with loving-kindness and tender mercies;
5  who satisfieth thy mouth with good things;
        
so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6  The LORD executeth righteousness
        
and judgment for all that are oppressed.
7  He made known his ways unto Moses,
        
his acts unto the children of Israel.
8  The LORD is merciful and gracious, Jas. 5.11
        
slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.
9  He will not always chide:
        
neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10  He hath not dealt with us after our sins;
        
nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11  For as the heaven is high above the earth,
        
so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
12  As far as the east is from the west,
        
so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
13  Like as a father pitieth his children,
        
so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
14  For he knoweth our frame;
        
he remembereth that we are dust.
15  As for man, his days are as grass:
        
as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
16  For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone;
        
and the place thereof shall know it no more.
17  But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting
        
upon them that fear him,
and his righteousness unto children's children;
18  to such as keep his covenant,
        
and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
19  The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens;
        
and his kingdom ruleth over all.
20  Bless the LORD, ye his angels,
        
that excel in strength,
that do his commandments,
hearkening unto the voice of his word.
21  Bless ye the LORD, all ye his hosts;
        
ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
22  Bless the LORD, all his works
        
in all places of his dominion:
bless the LORD, O my soul.
