Quoting the report in context, with additions below
'Nearly a year after an Ohio school board voted to remove a painting
of Jesus Christ that was hanging in a high school for decades, local
residents have taken action to ensure that the spirit of the image won’t
The debate over the painting, which had hung inside the main office
at John Glenn High School in New Concord, Ohio, since 1971 in memory of
former teacher Margaret Barnett, began when a student and the American
Civil Liberties Union jointly asked that it be taken down; the district
Allison Whaley, a senior at the time, was reportedly frustrated
after the school removed an art class project that included a T-shirt
with the words “Gay is Okay.” So, she responded by asking that the
painting be removed, with the ACLU threatening a lawsuit over it, reported the Columbus Dispatch.
Residents who revered the image — which is now on display at a local
church — responded to its removal by raising money to come up with a
symbol that could replace it to be placed on nearby private property,
according to the Zanesville Times- Recorder
And last week these efforts culminated with a new sign that was
installed atop a white column on the property of Terry and Cathy
Hodgson, two locals who have been involved in plans to find a solution
to the removal.
It reads, “The Lord is my Shepherd,” with the verse these words are derived from — “Psalm 23″ — printed on its side.
“I went to that school and graduated from that school,” Cathy Hodgson
told the outlet of her motivation to help. ”I really felt very good
about it. I was proud to do it.”
Residents initially planned to build a 6-foot statue of Jesus near
the entrance of the school, though they later opted for a cheaper sign
that features the actual image of the painting — one that portrays Jesus
surrounded by lambs, according to the Zanesville Times-Recorder
While the painting is no longer on school property, the sign’s home
on the Hodgson’s lawn is in view of the school, allowing students and
faculty, alike, to see it.
An internal light that illuminates the Christian message will make viewing it even easier.
The total cost of the sign was $6,000 — a sum that was raised from
more than two dozen donors, including local churches. It will be
dedicated on October 28 during a prayer ceremony.'
The TIMES-RECORDER, with signs of the times revealed.
It is written very clearly in the Holy Scriptures:
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."Matthew 19:14
The parents today have an important role to ensure that the children are not removed from Christ and there are warnings too...The one who delivers the truth continues to inspire and guide his people.

Taking the dates and times, scriptures reveal more
So he said, "Do you know why I have come to you? Soon I will return to
fight against the prince of Persia, and when I go, the prince of Greece
will come;' Daniel 10:20
For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you. Matthew 10:10
However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” Luke 10:20
Of the time that is also revealed, looking at Scriptures
Now when they had gone, behold, an angel of the Lord
appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, "Get up! Take the Child and His
mother and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod
is going to search for the Child to destroy Him." Matthew 2:13
Notice there is effort to take away the protection of God over the people and this has had the opposite effect in Ameica where instead of the masses looking at the False Idol king being heavily sold, people are looking to the King over all Kings and a Revival is taking place. Truth cannot be silenced forever.
And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God,
which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as
it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe. 1 Thessalonians 2:13
for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.Phillipans 2:13
Peace be with you
