I had this vision of the past this morning about something totally strange. It was in the early 1900’s of an unwelcoming town, but in every other town that was NOT the case. I thought, “what if there was only one person in that time in history that was writing and they had ONLY been in the unwelcoming town? 100 years later, when people are reading this person’s writings, the conclusion would be that all towns were unwelcoming during that time in history, but it wasn’t true.”
It’s a rather silly thought, but it got me thinking deeper about how history is written. It’s through the eyes of the people willing to write. We were able to get a more clear look at what it was like to be a jew during WWII thanks to Anne Frank. What will be written about America during the 21st century? And who will write about it?
It will go down in history that this country redefined gender, encouraged the murder of unborn babies, praised pedophilia, removed God from the public schools, colleges, science books, and thus their lives. But there is a remnant in this country that doesn’t agree with any of this. They are saddened and concerned as they watch this country crumble before their very eyes.
Some are speaking against it boldly and publicly, but it seems that others fear the opposition, retreat, and stay quiet most of the time. That’s often because the people that the remnants disagree with are their spouses, family members, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.
The remnant’s allegiance is to a higher power. They still believe in the God of The Bible and hold to His words. No government, corporation, or person will stop them from following it. The powers that be may try to shut the remnant up or down, but they won’t be successful. No one can stand against the Creator of the Universe and the people that follow Him.
May it go down in history that I did not conform. Not because I wanted to be rebellious, liked to to be the odd ball in the group, or enjoyed upsetting people that I love, but because I had the same power that rose Jesus Christ from the grave inside of me which prevented me from doing anything otherwise. I simply have no other desire or drive, but to follow God and His word. And I will shout about it from the rooftops in any way possible.
Matthew 7:14 says “But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
My prayer is that you shut out all of the noises of this world and join me on the road that ultimately leads to life no matter what everyone else around you is saying or doing.
