Seers Vision after the Collapse - 2 of 7 - Education

There is coming a time when all things we thought we knew will be pulled into a destiny already established. Like a guide rope secured to an unknown future we are pulled along, and despite short term diversions, there will come a day when things will follow a path leading to judgment, justice and adjustment. There will be a collapse.

Today I speak as a seer about education as delivered in the USA. The rest of the world will have differing adjustments. Education will not be exempt when the collapse comes.

At present education in the USA is expensive, unaffordable at the higher education level, ineffective (Our children come from school barely literate), ungodly and inner city schools have become a dangerous place that effectively warehouses children for 7 hours a day with no real educational focus or result. Education in America before the collapse is broken badly.

Worse, there are huge bureaucracies and interests that control public education in the USA. The unions and government administrations are parasitic to the economy.

This is one mountain that must be crushed by Father in restoration to the Biblical Purpose.
Proverbs 22:6 (The Message)

6 Point your kids in the right direction—
when they're old they won't be lost.
Our kids are being pointed in wrong directions by the education system in America and they are being lost. Lost because they are unprepared to make a decent living, lost because they follow after foolishness, lost because they are unable to find and hold down a job, or start a business. They are lost because no standard of righteousness is held out to them in schools.

I will take what Father says in his word to illustrate what God's purpose in education is. I know that it isn't how the verse is understood, but the application is apt:
2 Peter 3:9 (The Message)

The Day the Sky Will Collapse
8-9Don't overlook the obvious here, friends. With God, one day is as good as a thousand years, a thousand years as a day. God isn't late with his promise as some measure lateness. He is restraining himself on account of you, holding back the End because he doesn't want anyone lost. He's giving everyone space and time to change.
So, what is going to happen to education after the collapse?

Right now it is being exposed. It is losing support by the people. There is a huge bubble in Higher Education. Very few people will be able to afford it soon. Colleges will close. State colleges will cease to be able to receive funding in many states of the union as the money disappears. There will be private educational institutions but there will be fewer than now.

In elementary and secondary school the system will collapse, schools will just empty out. Some form of voucher system will come into play. But even that will collapse as money is no longer available to support it. People will have to find ways to educate their children without any government aid or facilities as all. That will be the beginning of a better new day in education.
Education will become a do it yourself activity. Home schoolers have been doing that for years with great success. Miss America this year was home schooled. My grandchildren are home schooled. It works well.

For those who cannot or have no propensity to home school they will do as our forefathers did and group together in community to school children in pods. Small groups. 20 or 30 kids in one room from first grade to 8th grade. The education they get will be superior in many ways in teaching kids basic skills and abilities then that received thru 12th in public education today.

There will be some secondary education, localized. Probably with two tracks. One for a design on head skills (business, education, government) and one for hand skills (mechanics, carpenters, engineers). Since this will be driven and controlled by local informal groups it will be highly variable in outcome. And, there will be a cost. Not money, since at this point money will be in flux, but in trade. A place to live, food to eat and some other things if you teach my kids to prepare them "Not to be lost" and we provide for you.

Jesus will be welcome back in most of these informal "schools". Yes there will be secular efforts at education but they will try to recreate a "Looks Like" retro form of education of the bad old days.

The net result will be that children coming out of whatever secondary education track they run on will be prepared to take their place in society. Form families. Become productive citizens.

Eventually some form of formal education will be created as the nation finds it's financial footing but it will not return to the failure it is now. The time between will have proven much.

When the education mountain is rebuilt, those who have provided and created education without being ashamed of Jesus will find themselves ready, able and among the respected of their generation. It will once more become evident that preparation of Body, Soul (mind) and Spirit are a unified task. Separation of the Spiritual from the rest will fail.

There will be great balance restored as this mountain is taken. Christians will have vision for seeing to it every child finds "the way he should go". Prayers of the Saints in taking this mountain will have been answered. Even the church itself will in some cases take it's place in providing education (as it does now). But, that will not be automatic. The church must see itself as the rightful educator. Princeton, Yale and Harvard could even return to their Christian roots.

What I see above is a vision of the future and the opportunities that I have carried for a long time. If you go back years in prophetic writings I have made, this theme has been there all the time. I know this much, when the money runs out, when things collapse, when organizations can no longer survive, it will open that door that no man can shut and if Christians walk thru it to occupy that mountain it WILL have been the vision and purpose of God to do so.

Of course, not of this will happen without a clear purpose and a fight. The enemy will not give this mountain up easily. It is the collapse, the mercy and love of God that will restore all things.

Then we must be diligent not to return to our vomit and allow public education to become the cesspool it is today.

Watch and Pray as Father brings things into order.

This is interesting and hopeful - something to mull over! Kim Clement gave a prophecy very recently where he said the newest generation of young people will not forsake God like the previous generation. He has also given prophecies before where God says He will reclaim the failing and godless education system back to Himself.

I can see and have experience with seeing how lost this current generation of youth really is. I lost my 20-year-old niece and her 23-year-old boyfriend to suicide. Satan just picks the young people off as his victims. It's so easy for him because they are so lost and drifting. They have no root in God. Secular humanism does kill. I keep praying for this lost generation to come back to God and (God willing) the next generation will stay with God!!

Sounds promising, I hear what you say about homeschooling. I knew a guy in tech-school who was home schooled as a child. He was 19 at the time and had the mentality of a 30 year old, plus a straight A student. Perhaps the reason why the Lord is allowing our financial system to collapse is that many of our problems are due in part to the bondage of Mammon. I wonder how much social and scientific progress has been stifled because such progress would adversely affect the financial interests of a few.
