Christ Jesus prayed that all those who would believe in Him would be ONE, just as He and the Father are ONE; that they be brought to complete unity so that the world would know that He was sent by the Father. (John 17:20-23)
Heaven Is Our Destination Where We Will Be ONE With The Lord Forever
Today, we are in The Season Of The Last Generation. The Birth Pains that Christ Jesus spoke about are currently under way, including natural and unnatural disasters. They will be ever increasing. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold. Social, economic and political turmoil will be ever increasing, causing people's hearts to be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life. An apostasy within the Church of God is currently under way. This will all reach a climax with Satan revealing his Antichrist and requiring that everyone worship him; That every one receive his "mark" in order to buy or sell; The new currency of the New World Order, the New Tower of Babel.
Today, it is criticalthat those who have a heart for God are aware of what God is doing and speaking today. God is opening up His Word like never before in preparation for The Time Of The END. I exhort you to open up your heart and your eyes to see what He is doing and your ears to hear what God is speaking at this time. My prayer is that we will be able to stand before the Son of Man at His appearing, without fault and with great joy.

1 U.S. TERRITORY JUMPS TO HEAD OF LINE FOR HOMESCHOOLING
1 U.S. TERRITORY JUMPS TO HEAD OF LINE FOR HOMESCHOOLING
New law recognizes teaching children as parents' 'fundamental right'
In the United States, where homeschooling is universally allowed, although there are varying state regulations, Puerto Rico has jumped to top.
The U.S. territory has adopted a law that makes the decision of parents to teach their children a “fundamental right.”
The Home School Legal Defense Association, a U.S.-based advocate for homeschooling that works worldwide, lists the requirements in all 50 states, ranging from no notice for parents to homeschool – such as Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Missouri, Idaho and Illinois – to the highly regulated Pennsylvania and New York.
Now, Puerto Rico is the first among U.S. states and territories to recognize homeschooling as a fundamental right, thanks to a law signed by Gov. Ricardo Rossello Nevares on June 7, HSLDA said.
HSLDA President Mike Smith said the designation is one of his organization’s major objectives.
“In other states and territories, we have successfully argued that homeschooling is within the fundamental right of parents to direct the upbringing and education of their children,” he said. “This is in keeping with precedent established by the United States Supreme Court, which has recognized protection for parents’ educational choices arising from the liberty clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”
He noted the U.S. Supreme Court approved of the practice as early as 1925.
But he said Puerto Rico has taken it to a new level.
“This issue was settled for parents in Puerto Rico when the new law, Legislative Act P. del. S. 255, declared homeschooling itself to be a fundamental right,” he explained. “Currently in Puerto Rico, homeschooling families are exempt from public school attendance under the non-governmental entity school’s exemption. However, this action on the part of the legislature and governor will ensure that homeschooling families have the highest constitutional protections, just as we all do for rights such as free speech and free association.”
The designation is significant, because it requires even the government to prove an overwhelming reason for the right to be violated.
HSLDA over the years has argued in courts around the world for the rights of parents to provide their children’s education, from Sweden to Germany to the European Court of Human Rights.
Across America, the organization has sued when school districts, cities or other local jurisdictions decide to demand more than the law allows from homeschooling parents. And it has successfully lobbied over and over for clear laws that allow parental teaching.
On the Puerto Rico development, the organization said much of the credit “for this monumental victory for parents goes to Carlos Perez, our local counsel in Puerto Rico.”
“Carlos’ actions were prompted by a change in government policy requiring church schools to obtain a license before they could operate. Since homeschools also operate as private schools, it seemed appropriate to protect the right of homeschools as well as church schools.”
HSLDA said that by “recognizing homeschooling as a fundamental right – the highest constitutional protection available – Puerto Rico has declared the value and importance of educational freedom.”
