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.

U.S. HOUSE REJECTS PLAN TO IDENTIFY THE ENEMY
U.S. HOUSE REJECTS PLAN TO IDENTIFY THE ENEMY
Bill would name 'Islamic doctrines' that motivate terror
With more than 20 Republicans joining Democrats, the U.S. House of Representatives rejected an amendment that would identify the “Islamic religious doctrines, concepts or schools of thought” that could be used by terrorist groups.
The amendment, drafted by House Freedom Caucus member Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., was defeated Friday by a 208 to 217 vote.

It called for the Pentagon to identify Islamic leaders who preach peaceful beliefs versus those who espouse extremist views, Politico reported.
Spencer pointed to the complaint of Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim elected to Congress, that the bill would put “extra scrutiny” on Islam.
Spencer agreed that would be the case. But he argued there’s a reason for it: “30,000 jihad attacks committed in the name of Islam and in accord with its teachings since September 11, 2001.”
“No one religion has anything approaching that kind of record of death and destruction,” he said. “So why shouldn’t we put extra scrutiny on that religion?”
Ellison said: “If you have an amendment that says we’re going to study one religion and only one, we’re going to look at their leaders and put them on a list — only them — and you are going to talk about what’s orthodox practice and what’s unorthodox, then you are putting extra scrutiny on that religion.”
Ellison also contended the law would abridge the free exercise of a particular religion.
But Spencer argued that “the free exercise of any religion is not a license to break existing laws.”
“The free exercise of religion is not a free pass to commit treason or subversion or sedition,” he said.

The amendment would have required the Defense Department to conduct “strategic assessments of the use of violent or unorthodox Islamic religious doctrine to support extremist or terrorist messaging and justification.”
“There is nothing ‘unorthodox’ about jihad violence in Islamic law and doctrine,” Spencer said. “But even this tepid recommendation was too much for the short-sighted 217 cowards of the House, who have passed up an opportunity to strengthen our defense against the global jihad.”
Along with Muslim interest groups, the proposal was criticized by the American Civil Liberties Union, which said it would unfairly target Muslims.
Ellison tweeted after the amendment’s defeat: “Good happens – even in Congress! Franks Amendment singling out Muslims rejected; Congress declines to ‘abridge free exercise’ of religion.”
Politico reported Franks said he would work with his colleagues to try to modify the amendment so it will pass eventually.
“Right now, there is a certain spectrum within the Islamist world that is at the root of the ideological impulse for terrorism,” Franks said. “Ironically, Muslims are the prime targets of these groups. To suggest that this is anti-Muslim is a fallacy, and I think that anyone who really understands it knows that.”
The congressman said he and his colleagues have “worked very hard to protect the religious freedom for everybody.” he said.
“But it is important that we empower America to identify those heroic Muslims within the world that will help us begin to delegitimize this ideology of global jihad,” he said.
The amendment, Politico said, would require the Defense Department to conduct “strategic assessments of the use of violent or unorthodox Islamic religious doctrine to support extremist or terrorist messaging and justification.”
It also asks Pentagon officials for “recommendations for identifying key thought leaders or proponents.”
Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly
Kelly told the House Homeland Security Committee in June 22 that the perpetrators of attacks during the Islamic month of Ramadan have “corrupted” Islam, and he suggested Christian and Jewish beliefs are also causing terrorism, Breitbart reported.
“As far as Ramadan goes, you know, first of all, the uptick in violence and activities is done by a very, very small percentage of people who have just corrupted the whole concept of Islam as a religion; but it is what it is,” Kelly told the chairman of the committee, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas.
Similarly, President Trump’s national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, told his staff in February that Muslims who commit terrorist acts are “perverting their religion,” the New York Times reported, citing people at the meeting.
McMaster said the label “radical Islamic terrorism” was not helpful because terrorists are “un-Islamic.”
The Times quote William McCants, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, saying there is “a deep hunger for McMaster’s view in the interagency,” referring to the process by which the State Department, Pentagon and other agencies funnel recommendations through the National Security Council.
In his speech in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, last month to Muslim political leaders, President Trump appeared to distance himself from campaign rhetoric that suggested Islam itself is the problem.
“This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations. This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it,” the president said.
DHS denies funding to Islamic group
There are indications, however, that DHS policy is changing. The department recently ruled the Los Angeles-based Muslim Public Affairs Council – a group founded by members of the Muslim Brotherhood – will not receive the $393,800 Countering Violent Extremism grant approved by Obama’s DHS secretary, Jeh Johnson, on Jan. 13, days before Johnson left office, reported the Investigative Project on Terrorism.
The change came after “DHS utilized its discretion to consider other factors and information when reviewing applicants,” a spokeswoman said in an email to IPT.
“The Department considered whether applicants for CVE awards would partner with law enforcement, had a strong basis of prior experience in countering violent extremism, had a history of prior efforts to implement prevention programs targeting violent extremism, and were viable to continue after the end of the award period.”
My comments: This Inaction by Congress, and the statements of Kelly and McMasters, display the Gross Ignorance of America concerning the Inherent Evil of Islam. If you cannot identify the Enemy, you certainly cannot defeat it. So Islam will prosper in the U.S., and the U.S. will go the way of Germany, Sweden, and Europe--to Hell. The Koran is the source of all Islamic Ideology, and it Incites Violence against Everyone, including its own.
