PERIODIC MESSAGE TO THE STUDENTS AT NEW DAWN
Today in American there is a radical and accepted trend to do what “feels good”. Moral, spiritual, and Godly virtues are being forgotten and the country is sliding into secular humanism, where everyone becomes a power unto himself. Every individual decides right and wrong depending upon their own “situation” and so “situational ethics” prevail according to personal preferences over Biblical standards.
There is right and there is wrong. We learn what is right from the Bible. Muslims are now brainwashing their young children to kill Jews and Christians. We, as Christians, must advance the commandment given by our Lord Jesus Christ to love God with all our hearts and to love one another.
You, students, at New Dawn are very important to God. You are and will be shining lights unto your world and you are “Christ centered world changers”. You have been given a charge as the Lord gave to the Apostle Paul in accordance with Acts 26:16 – “But rise, and stand upon your feet: for I have appeared unto you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of these things which you have seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto you”. You have been given a great, new chance in life to go forth and change your world for good! All power in heaven and earth resides in you!
There is something mighty beyond yourself. It is God and He loves you. Jesus went to the Cross trusting and believing that you would follow Him and die to self!
Denying God is what the world does to gratify individual appetites. More and more people in the West are rejecting God and becoming a god unto themselves. The technological revolution is making each of us a god as our lives are being centered more and more around ourselves. We have our whole universe held in our programmed, hand-held device.
Do you have a Bible? Are you holding your Bible in your hand? Are you reading 5 Psalms and 1 Proverb daily to cover these chapters in one month? I charge you to do this.
In truth, however, no matter how hard it tries, society cannot remove the reality of God. And you are on God’s side and He is on your side! You are on the winning side which has been demonstrated time and time again throughout history. “Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind; that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”. – Romans 12:2.
We believe in you…we are praying for you…and we know that God Almighty will have His way in your heart! God bless you always.
