This page: When man agrees with God, good things begin to happen.

To bring CEC Canada Schools and Churches into being across the Nation. The purpose, to help the Saints of God to acquire an in depth knowledge of God, and of His Counsel. Furthermore, to help in the equipping of the Saints of God for the work called for by His Counsel, namely the building and edifying of the Church, the Body of Christ.

The strongest statement which God has made regarding the lack of knowledge is the one he made to his people Israel. This statement drives home the need to know God and his counsel. The Prophet Hosea writes, chapter 4 beginning at verse 6. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you, so that you shall be no priest to me: seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children. 7. As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.
God’s words “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge” are buried deep the heart of the CEC Canada Foundation Association, they are as goads to bring knowledge to his people. God has placed them there never to be forgotten.
Isaiah writes, chapter 5 verse 13. Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and there honorable famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. CEC Canada questions, Is there anymore serious charge, is there any more serious penalty, for not knowing?

The first time Israel received knowledge from God was through Moses, this knowledge had to do with what God had in mind for the children of Israel. This is a promise statement: Exodus 19: 3. And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; 4. You have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself. 5. Now therefore, if you will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then you shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6. And you shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which you shall speak unto the children of Israel.
With this promise came a purpose statement: Israel was to be seen as a nation under God by the world: Deuteronomy 4: 5. Behold I have taught you statues and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that you should do so in the land whither you go to possess it. 6. keep therefore and do them; for this your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. 7. For what nation is there so great, who has God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for? 8. And what nation is so great, that has statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day? 9. Only take heed to yourself, and keep you soul diligently, lest you forget the things which your eyes have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life: but teach them to your sons, and your son’s sons.
The importance of the commandments, the importance of them being taught, the importance of keeping them. Deuteronomy 6. 1. Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that you might do them in the land whither your go to possess to: 2. That you may fear the LORD your God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command you, you and your son, and your son’s son, all the days of your life; and that your days may be prolonged. 3. Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with you, and they you may increase mightily, as the LORD God of your fathers has promised you, in the land that flows with milk and honey. 4. Hear, O Israel; The LORD our God is one LORD: 5. And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. 6. And these words, which I command you this day, shall be in your heart: 7. And you shall teach them diligently unto your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. 8. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9. And you shall write them upon the posts of your house, and on your gates. 10. And it shall be, when the LORD your God shall have brought you into the land which he sware unto your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give you great and goodly cities, which you did not build. 11. and houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, and dug wells, which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees, which you did not plant; when you shall have eaten and be full; 12. Then beware lest you forget the LORD, which brought you forth out of the land of Eqypt, from the house of bondage. 13. You shall fear the  LORD  your God, and serve him, and shall swear by his name. 14. You shall not go after other gods, or the gods of the people which are round about you; 15. (For the LORD your God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD your God be kindled against you, and destroy your from off the face of the earth. 16. You shall not tempt the LORD you God, as you tempted him in Massah. 17. You shall diligently keep the commandments of the LORD your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he has commanded you. 18. And you shall do that which is right and good in the sight of the LORD: that it may be well with you, and that you may go in and possess the good land which the LORD sware unto your fathers. ----25. And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the LORD our God, as has commanded us.
Is God is prepared make big picture investments in children today? Deuteronomy 1: 34. And the LORD heard the voice of your words, and was wroth, and sware, saying. 35. Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see that good land, which I sware to give unto yours fathers. 36. Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him will I give the land that he has trodden upon, and of his children, because he has wholly followed the LORD. 37. Also the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, You also shall not go into that place. 38. But Joshua the son of Nun, which stands before you, he shall go into that place: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it. 39. Moreover your little ones, which you said should be a prey, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go into that place, and unto them will I give it, and they shall possess it. 40. But as for you, you turn, and take your journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea.
The Psalmist King David writes: Psalm 8: 1. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! who has set your glory above the heavens. 2. Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings have you ordained strength because of your enemies, that you might still the enemy and the avenger 3. When I consider your heavens, the work of your finger, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained; 4. What is man, that you are mindful of him? and the son on man, that your visits him? 5. For you have made him a little lower then the angels, and has crowned him with glory and honor: 6. You made him to have dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet: 7. All sheep and oxen, yea and the beasts of the field; 8. The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passes through the paths of the seas. 9. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is you name in all the earth!
Matthew 21: 6. And the disciples went, and did as Jesus commanded them. 7. And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set him thereon. 8. and a very great multitude spread their garments in the way; others cut down branches from the trees, and strawed them in the way, 9 And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, Hosanna to the son of David: Blessed is he  that comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the hightest. 10. And when he was come into Jerusalem, all the city was moved, saying, Who is this? 11. And the multitude said, This is Jesus, the prophet of Nazareth of Galilee. 12. And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13. And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves. 14. And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them. 15. And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the son of David; they were sore dispelased, 16. And said unto him, Don’t you hear what they are saying? Jesus said unto them, Yea; have you never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings you have perfected praise
The question is this, Will God once more use BABES AND SUCKLING to let the world know who He is. Will they sing HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST  once again.
The Lord had this to say to those who tried to stop people from bringing children to him.
Matthew 19: 14. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. 15. And he laid his hands on them, and departed to go further.
The man Solomon the wisest man ever, had this to say: Proverbs 22: 6. Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
The Apostle Paul writing to Timothy, had this to say: 2 Timothy 3: 15. From a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
To CEC Canada there is nothing more comforting then to know that  God’s children can be taught to know him, and can be taught to know his counsel, furthermore that they can be trained to meet the demands of his counsel, and last but not least that it is God’s will for his children. Ephesians 6: 4. reads, And you fathers provoke not your children to wrath, but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
As we survey this present world there are many, many, children who have not been given the opportunity to know God, his counsel, nor the life he might have for them in this present world, neither have they had the opportunity to know what eternity holds for them that obey God, CEC Canada’s responsibility is to search them out, and to give to them the opportunity, we repeat,  to know God, his counsel, the life he might for them in this present world, and last to give to them the opportunity to know what eternity has in store for all who live good and godly lives. 

A nutshell to be remembered from King David. Psalm 1: 1 - 6.

Psalm 1: 1. Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. 2. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in his law does he mediate day and night. 3. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; he leaf also shall not whither, and whatsoever he does shall prosper. 4. The ungodly are not so but are like he chaff which the wind drives away. 5. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6. For the LORD  knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
The Apostle Paul at Ephesus.
 Ephesians 1: 1 - 6: 24.
Chapter 1: 1. Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, by the will of God, to saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus.
Chapter 2: 1. And you has he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins.
Chapter 3: 1. For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles.
Chapter 4: 1. I therefore the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation wherewith you are called.
Chapter 5: 1. Be therefore followers of God, as dear children.
Chapter 6: 1. Children obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
