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.

HEALTHCARE? TAXES? NO. CONGRESS BIZARRELY ACTS ON HORSE SLAUGHTER
HEALTHCARE? TAXES? NO. CONGRESS BIZARRELY ACTS ON HORSE SLAUGHTER
Republicans lifting 'justly popular ban' on destroying wild animals
WASHINGTON – Think of all the things that need addressing by Congress: Health care, taxes, Iran, North Korea, jobs, vote fraud…. And more.
So what have Republican lawmakers done?
They’ve just voted to allow horses to be slaughtered in the United States for human consumption, a reversal of previous measures that prevented the practice.
Slaughtering horses is extremely unpopular among Republican voters particularly, with a poll by the American Wild Horse Campaign reporting that “an overwhelming 80 percent of Americans, including 86 percent of 2016 Trump voters and 77 percent of Clinton voters, want Congress to keep anti-slaughter protections in place.”
A spending bill signed into law by President Trump in May banned the slaughter of horses for consumption, but last month lawmakers in the House Appropriates Committee narrowly rejected an amendment that would ban horse slaughter for the 2018 fiscal year.
Trump’s initial bill would have allowed excess horses to be euthanized or sold to Mexican or Canadian slaughterhouses, rather than slaughtered in the United States.
The House Appropriations Committee also approved an amendment from Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, last month to the Department of the Interior’s annual appropriations bill that allows the Bureau of Land Management to kill “healthy, unadopted wild horses” in their care.
BLM is currently responsible for overseeing approximately 46,000 wild horses, at a cost of around $50 million annually.
“The BLM’s Wild Horse and Burro Program has quadrupled in size since 2000, rising from $20.4 million to $80.4 million in 2017. But it’s not working. In fact, there are few examples of government mismanagement quite as egregious as the BLM’s handling of the program,” Horowitz writes.
BLM is tasked with preventing the overpopulation of these wild horses, and in order to do so regularly rounds up horses from the wild and sends them to “holding facilities where most remain for the rest of their lives, despite repeated admonitions from Congress and scientific advisory panels that this [is] a very bad idea,” Horowitz notes.
Horowitz believes the solution is instead a campaign of sterilization and population control, not simply culling horses whenever herds become too large.
Rather than pursue this solution, however, BLM has requested approval to slaughter “up to 90,000 wild horses.”
The gain for Republican lawmakers with such a decision wasn’t immediately clear.
“After the July 12 ban-lifting vote, there was immediate blowback against the heartless, inhumane Republicans,” Horowitz explains.
The Humane Society’s Martin Irby, who considers himself a “lifelong Republican” denounced the pro-slaughter measures.
“I’m deeply saddened and quite ashamed to see my fellow conservatives go to such great lengths to promote the slaughter of American equines,” he said.
Democrats are in agreement: “We deeply regret the committee’s failure to adopt Rep. [Louise] Roybal-Allard’s [D-Calif.] amendment to prohibit the inspection of horses for slaughter for human food. There are far better and more humane ways to deal with unwanted horses, and the past experience in this country of slaughtering horses for human food was, frankly, a disaster,” Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., and Sanford Bishop, D-Ga., said in a statement.
The only sizable pro-slaughter groups are the beef lobby and cattle ranchers, who would rather public land be used for livestock grazing.
“The beef producers which are the main lobby for this legislation are apparently fine with their cattle ‘destroying the range’ because they profit from it. Protect the Harvest is a 501(c)(4) nonprofit founded, funded, and run by cattleman and energy magnate Forrest Lucas of Lucas Oil Products Inc. and a driving force behind the new horse slaughter legislation,” Horowitz states.
Irby agrees: “Lucas has gone to great lengths to bring horse slaughter back.”
“This politically tone-deaf move by Republicans to lift a justly popular ban on horse-killing makes them water-carriers for inhumane legislation promoted by a special interest seeking to benefit itself at the expense of a noble creature and an American heritage,” Horowitz concludes.
