It appears that the message has been received (sort of) by at least one student. Sothearknine from Grade 8, procured this timeline from the Grade 10 classroom and has it proudly displayed behind his desk with the following sign..
I can report that both the world map and this timeline have so far not been touched!
I read these verses from Isaiah this morning.
“I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence… And give Him no rest, till He establish, and till He make Jerusalem a praise in the earth…. Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people.” ~ Isaiah 62:6-7,10 ~
They spoke volumes to me. As a watchman I have a work given by God to do. Lately there has been some heart breaking moments here (and around the world) and I have been brought to realize once again that I don’t have time to sit on the fence. I don’t have time to be ‘of the world’. There are souls that Jesus died for perishing all around me. There are precious people being led down dark paths to ruin, pain, and eternal loss. What right do I, who have been blessed with this Light, have to play idle games, speak useless words, and waste scarce time on things that do not give glory to God.
I will not keep silence. By God’s grace and power, I will lift up a standard: I will lift up the Savior that all people might see, believe and live.
I will not leave the world untouched!
