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 critical that 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. I encourage you to read David Wilkerson's book, America's Last Call at davidwilkersontoday.blogspot.com. Also, Google, Tommy Hicks Prophecy, 1961 for a view of the End Times.

THE OPIOID CRISIS IS DIRE

The Opioid Crisis Is Dire. Why We Need a National Conversation About It Separate From Obamacare.

Seth Leibsohn / @SethLeibsohn / Sean Noble / @SeanNobleAZDC / June 26, 2017 / Daily Signal
Whatever the merits or demerits of the recently released Senate version of the GOP health care bill, some have suggested that it should put more funding into treating opioid addiction.

Let’s be honest—the opioid crisis in America is huge, it is severe, and it is devastating. But this partisan-fought legislation just isn’t the place to put that funding. And it would likely do little to help stem and reverse the opioid crisis.
First, it’s not as though funding for opioid treatment and recovery has been absent from the federal budget. As recently as last month, Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, was touting signed legislation that spent more than $1 billion to fund recovery programs.
This money was authorized separately from the debate over Obamacare in two pieces of legislation known as the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act and the 21st Century Cures Act.
To highlight the importance of the opioid problem, and provide needed money to combat it, more and separate attention should be put on it as those two pieces of legislation began to do—it should not be caught up and tucked into the partisan debate over the repeal of Obamacare.
Reversing the opioid epidemic should not and cannot be a partisan political issue, and the debate over Obamacare is more partisan than almost any legislation in Congress.
Second, as the opioid crisis begins attracting more and more national attention—late as it may be—we need to give thorough consideration to how treatment money is being spent and what kinds of outcomes we should expect and demand from recovery treatment programs.
As things stand, the dropout rate for those in recovery programs is well over 50 percent, even after a great deal of time and money has been invested in the programs.
This is not a new problem. Relapse is high among those recovering from substance abuse in almost every program.
In part, that is the nature of addiction and drug abuse and, in part, it is the nature of some programs that work better than others.
But throwing good money after bad only to see high rates of relapse and worsening overdose events by those who do relapse is a waste of money and, in too many cases, life.
Finally, if we plan to get serious about the opioid crisis, we must devote at least half as much—if not more—attention to prevention as we do to treatment and recovery.
Treatment and recovery—while important—are last ditch efforts, after-the-fact solutions, addressing the issues too late. We need to focus on stopping these problems before they start, especially knowing how high the rates of relapse are.
We know that prevention programs have worked in the past, whether they pertain to forest fires or drunk driving or, for that matter, the massive reduction in drug use we witnessed in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Such a prevention program for the opioid crisis must start with leadership from the White House in leading these conversations and highlighting the devastation of substance abuse initiation.
It requires detailing what is driving the opioid epidemic—namely, illegal fentanyl, heroin, and other illegal drug use and diversion. It requires more law enforcement—from border and customs policies and cracking down on cartels to international initiatives. And it requires messaging to our youth.
Yes, we need better physician training and pain management protocols. That has begun to take place—mostly out of the light of public view, which is fine and necessary.
But the national conversations and public messaging we’ve seen work so well in the past on a range of issues—especially on drug initiation and abuse—have been too muted.
If we want to get serious about the opioid crisis—and we must—partisan politics in repeal and replace debates are not the place to do so.
This crisis deserves its own conversation and, indeed, a new mindset that has, to date, been sorely absent.

My comments: We are witnessing a Nation that has Abandoned God and His Word, and when this happens Satan has a clear path to wreak Destruction on that Nation. A Nation that has Abandoned God and His Word finds that their Problems Multiply.
