This may end up being a hodge-podge of thoughts….I have recently heard about some things going on in Europe, from different sources, though all are related and may indicate a trend that our country is headed for if we don’t fight.
And of course, in my opinion, feminism is at the root. Feminism, and every other “ism” that Satan himself is the author of.
A missionary from Europe spoke at our church about the eminent take-over of Islam in Europe over the next few years. Do you know why? Because Islamics reproduce the way they were created to, and Europeans don’t. Now there’s a novel idea!
And get this…it was reported that an American missionary asked an Islamic man why they had so many children. His reply? “Because we believe in God.” What do you think of that?
The missionary concluded by saying, “It really comes down to one simple thing: the one with the most babies wins!” Is it any wonder? Aren’t God’s plans always right? When we start altering things, based on our own personal “wisdom”, we inadvertently change the course of mankind. WOW.
Another tragedy going on in Europe is the hostility toward homeschoolers, particularly in Germany. Many of you have been aware, I’m sure, of families over there undergoing persecution for their choice to homeschool.
Currently, there is a family, the Neubonners, who have just had their personal and business banking accounts FROZEN BY THE GOVERNMENT because they didn’t pay penalty fines imposed on them for refusing to send their sons to the state school. Isn’t it ironic that the government is “so concerned with the welfare of these boys” that they could care less whether they starve to death, as long as they’re being indoctrinated by the state?! You can read their story HERE.
But the worst part of it all is that in the past, Europe is about 10 years ahead of the US in every area…art, entertainment, fashion, and culture. Can you see the writing on the wall?
There is a reason my blog name is WORD WARRIOR. My birth name, Kelly, means “warrior”. For those of you who believe that a child’s name has a bearing on the kind of person he becomes, it rings true in my case. I struggle constantly with desiring a quiet and gentle spirit, and yet feeling this warrior-type spirit within me. I’ve asked the Lord to help me be the quiet and gentle woman His word describes, and yet use whatever this passion within me is for His glory. This blog, I think, is part of the result of that prayer.
I hope, in some way, to be able to use words, since that is what the Lord has given me, to fight against the gates of hell in this nation. I hope I stir others up to fight…as women, in whatever realm He gives us. Most of you are mothers…and isn’t it a blessed hope for our nation that we have been given the incredible opportunity to “assist God in a miracle” by giving birth? And isn’t it wonderfully true that “the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world”?
Europe is about to experience the truth of that reality.
