"I Have to Spend 10 Hours in a Mosque"
9 Words No Parent Wants to Hear When They Drop Their Kid off at College

"I have to spend 10 hours in a mosque," our son told us yesterday.

We just dropped him off at college a week ago. Most parents wonder if their kid is gonna' go nuts when they have complete freedom. Will they still go to church? Will they get in with the partying crowd? Having to spend 10 hours in a mosque was not on my list of things I was concerned about for our son.

Stuck in an elevator 1 1/2 hours
He'd had a "crazy, amazing" first week: 

"The amazing life of Jarod," my mom posted, when he said being stuck in an elevator for 1 1/2 hours just helped him get to know his new friends better.

You kinda' don't worry about someone who earns Student of the Year for Business/Entrepreneurship, because he took 11 business classes and didn't miss a day of high school. 

Business/Entrepreneurship Student of the Year
Who two different teachers last year, at the beginning of his Senior year said, "his thinking is sophisticated beyond high school."

Who had Calculus 3 his first day of college yesterday, and is double majoring in Math/Statistics because he plans on being an Actuary. 

And, most important, who went to church his first week on campus with one of two new guy friends that plan on becoming a pastor. 

Who has always gotten extra protection from God, via miracles.

This mosque visit is part of some Honors' program he has to do where they have to visit other religions. He could have picked from a mosque, synagogue, or Buddhist temple. Non-Christian kids could also pick a Benedictine monastery. 

Jarod has chosen the path of a warrior. The most difficult one.

It's the option I would have chosen. I've never been more proud of my son.

Because the Holy Ghost has taught Kevin and I about spiritual warfare the past couple of years, we have no fear about this. Jarod would not have chosen this unless the Holy Ghost had called him, so He will walk with him in those doors.

We can see it now:

The unclean spirits inside are furious when they see FIERCE angels invade their territory. Then in walks Jesus. Only it's not Jesus, but a bold young man in whom He shines so brightly through that He is all they see. 

They are COWARDS before their Creator, and Jesus DOES NOT LET ANYONE NEAR HIS FAVORED BROTHER ("For whoever does the will of God is My brother and My sister and mother." - Mark 3:35).

Evangelist John Ramirez had a contract with the unclean spirit over Islam before Jesus rescued him. 

In one of his videos he says that Santeria is way more powerful than Islam, because it's a spiritual religion, but that the power he felt was NOTHING compared to when the Holy Ghost entered him.

Kevin and I are NOT afraid for Jarod because the Omnipotent GOD dwells within him. Woe to ANY unclean spirit that would dare to attack him--Jesus WILL NOT let that go unpunished.

And we know that the lost souls inside that building will see the light of Jesus. We pray they heed His call.

"And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My name shall they cast out devils...." - Mark 16:17

“Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." - Matthew 18:18

"'You have put all things in subjection under his feet.' For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him." - Hebrews 2:8
