The Economic Collapse In Venezuela Is So Bad That People Are Slaughtering And Eating Zoo Animals

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Black Stallion - Public DomainIf you were hungry enough, would you kill and eat zoo animals?  To most of us such a notion sounds absolutely insane, but this is actually happening in Venezuela right now.  This is a country where people are standing in lines for up to 12 hours hoping that there will be food to buy that day, and where rioting and looting have become commonplace.  So even though the U.S. economy is in dreadful shape at this moment, we should be thankful for what we have, because at least we are not experiencing a full-blown economic collapse yet like Venezuela currently is.

Black stallions can be some of the most beautiful horses on the entire planet, but things are so desperate down in Venezuela this summer that everything looks like food to some people at this point.  What happened at the Caricuao Zoo on Sunday is so horrible that I actually debated whether or not to share it with you.  Desperate people do desperate things, and when people get hungry enough they will do things such as this

Venezuela’s worsening food shortages had tragic consequences for a rare show horse last weekend, when a group of intruders broke into the zoo, pulled the black stallion from its cage, then slaughtered it for meat.

Prosecutors say the crime occurred in the small hours of Sunday morning at Caracas’ Caricuao Zoo, when “several people” sneaked into the state-run park under the cover of darkness and busted into the stallion’s pen. The horse, the only one of its kind in the zoo, was then led to a more secluded area and butchered on the spot. Only its head and ribs were left behind in a gruesome pile for zookeepers to find after sunrise.

Unfortunately, this precious animal was not even the first victim at that particular zoo.

A few weeks ago, pigs and sheep were the targets

Sadly, this horse wasn’t the first zoo animal to suffer the effects of Venezuela’s crippling food shortages. Some Vietnamese pigs and sheep were reportedly stolen from the same zoo earlier this month.

Dozens of other zoo animals are slowing starving to death because there is no food available to give to them.  In fact, it is being reported that at least 50 animals have died from lack of food at one zoo alone

At least 50 animals have died in the last six months at the Caricuao zoo in Caracas, Venezuela, due to widespread food shortages that are affecting both man and beast in the socialist nation.

Marlene Sifontes, a union leader for employees of state parks agency Inparques which oversees zoos, told Reuters that the zoo lost Vietnamese pigs, tapirs, rabbits and birds after the animals went weeks without eating. Others animals at the zoo are in danger of severe malnutrition. Lions and tigers, which should be on a carnivorous diet, are being fed mango and pumpkin just to get something in their empty stomachs, while an elephant is being fed tropical fruit instead of its usual diet of hay, the union leader said. According to one report, the big cats are being fed slaughtered thoroughbred racehorses from a nearby race track.

If what you have just read hurts your heart, let us not forget that it is not just the animals that are suffering.  There are millions of precious people down there that are living on the very edge of starvation as you read this article.

Earlier this year, one mayor came forward and admitted to the world that some people are so hungry that they are actually hunting “cats, dogs and pigeons” for food…

Ramón Muchacho, Mayor of Chacao in Caracas, said the streets of the capital of Venezuela are filled with people killing animals for food.

Through Twitter, Muchacho reported that in Venezuela, it is a “painful reality” that people “hunt cats, dogs and pigeons” to ease their hunger. People are also reportedly gathering vegetables from the ground and trash to eat as well.

The crisis in Venezuela is worsening everyday due in part to shortages reaching 70 percent […] six Venezuelan military officials were arrested for stealing goats to ease their hunger, as there was no food at the Fort Manaure military base.

With each passing week, the situation in Venezuela keeps on getting worse.

And even though the United States has made many of the exact same mistakes that Venezuela has made, most of us just assume that what is happening down there could never happen up here.

After all, we have “the greatest economy in the world” and we are “the wealthiest nation on the entire planet”, right?

Well, actually our economic infrastructure has been systematically gutted by free trade deals and we consume far more wealth than we produce.  We have artificially pumped up our standard of living by adding more than 1.1 trillion dollars a year to the national debt since Barack Obama has been in the White House, and one recent poll discovered that 62 percent of all Americans have less than $1,000 saved up.

But don’t worry.  Instead of turning out like Venezuela, the mainstream media insists that the best days for America are right around the corner.

In fact, just today I came across a Business Insider article that insisted that soon our biggest economic problem will be that we won’t be able to find enough workers.

And Barbra Streisand is so thrilled that Hillary Clinton is going to be our next president that she launched into a rousing rendition of “Happy Days Are Here Again” as she kicked off her farewell tour in Los Angeles.  The following account comes from the Drudge Report

So long sad times
Go along bad times
We are rid of you at last
Howdy gay times
Cloudy gray times
You are now a thing of the past
Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
So let’s sing a song of cheer again…

Streisand suddenly interrupted the lyric, realizing a Democrat was currently in the White House!

“By the way, I love Obama.”

Altogether shout it now
There’s no one
Who can doubt it now
So let’s tell the world about it now
Happy days are here again

So what is the truth?

Are we going to end up just like Venezuela, or are happy days here once more?

Unfortunately, I have a feeling that we are not going to have to wait too long to find out…

    The day will come that we don’t waste a bean. My stepfather grew up I the depression and said “if you did not have a garden – you went hungry”. My mother said growing up” they had one pan of green beans and that was it” -,we take a lot for granted. Prepare to help your family and others as you see fit and / or pointed- May God bless all you fellow watchmen and women.

    I am going to say something unpopular. If it is true that the zoo animals are starving. Better they be slaughtered for human food.Then allowed to slowly starve to death.

    • Bill G Wilminton NC

      I couldn’t agree more.

      Waste not, want not.

    • Douglas M. Green

      Next up…. Canibalism. They bankrupted the producers by forcing them to sell at a loss. Atlas has Shrugged.

    • SnohtBlossom

      What we are likely seeing here is great class/wealth disparity. While the act has a basis in poverty, it is also a symbolic act meant to upset consciousness. Once an example has been set, there may be less “need” to replicate the act, and security can learn from its shortcomings.

    • VigilanteCaregiver

      It’s very sensible. People should come first: we were charged with dominion over the earth all things in it.

      Can I say something that is also unpopular? We should put our nation right, strengthen traditional marriage and families, stop aborting babies and revoke no-fault divorce, rebuild our economy and culture… then make an offer to bring Venezuela into the Union as a territory, and when they learn English and get their $&#$ in order, bring ’em in as the 51st state!

      They are wanting to emigrate here anyway! They obviously have a ruined socialist culture and government! Let’s really help them out and make things better for everyone!

  • Robert

    I spent my childhood in an agricultural community. Farmers did not have gardens but the folks in the small town did. Gardening takes a lot of effort and focus. Then, if you can items, that is another skill set and one you had better get right the first time. Another issue is the hybrid plants that do not reproduce the next generation from their seeds. Corporate America and Universities have even taken away the ability to grow your own food. Yes, I know about heirloom seeds and such. You just are limited in variety if you can get them at all. Some seeds sold as heirloom are not what they are supposed to be.

    Tough to garden in the southern US given fungus, insects and other plant diseases. If you can afford freeze dried food then good for you. If you plan on gardening, plan on being hungry too often.

    • alan

      You just need to know what to grow. We grow mostly Asian vegs and anything semi tropical does fine. some do well in sand too.

    • natxlaw

      Tell me about it. Bought heirloom corn, golden bantam, it grew halfway and no ears 🙁

    • SnohtBlossom

      geez.. gardening isn’t that tough. a lil common sense and nature does most of the work

          The atheists on here are really anti-christ’s. Real atheists don’t bother with bad-mouthing churches, religious liberty, or bother with vocalizing their opposition to the 1st Amendment.

          Anti-christ’s constantly fight against the Lord’s Church, demand Christian’s stay out of government buildings, call proselytizing ‘hate speech’, demand folks act against their own faith and convictions – even to use the law against them; forcing folks to bake a wedding cake take photos of their deviant version of marriage. Generally, anyone who claims to not believe in God, but willingly fights against Him and His Saints, Church, Gospel, etc is not actually an atheist, they’re an anti-christ.

    the day is coming soon that every bite of food we have wasted will haunt us more than any of us can imagine. So many are dependent on gov handouts this is one of the things that could start riots. America has rotted from within. the main culprit is the liberal mind. And for all you liberals out there the only reason we have not suffered judgment already, is because of all the Christians in America praying for America. When all this goes down how in the world is a liberal democrat who is dependent on the government going to feed him/her self, well it will be a Christion who has seen Gods love and saved by Jesus himself filled with the Holy Spirit. It would be a salt of the earth Christion that would help you!

    • df NJ

      If what you say is true, then how come blue states which are primarily liberal socialist states are so much wealthier than bible thumping red states. You would think with all the red state praying going on all the red states would be tax donor states and not tax recipient states of federal dollars. You red states don’t have to take the federal dollars. Wasn’t Texas supposed to have seceded from the union by now.

      • df NJ

        On the left you have communism where the CEO makes the same as the median worker’s wage. On the right you have laissez faire capitialism where the CEO makes 500 times, or more, than the median wage. Which side do you honestly think we are closer to?

        Marx said laissez faire capitalism is always followed by communism because unfettered greed would result in a government’s currency collapse. Once the currency collapses people in bread lines will DEMAND more government not less.

        The CEOs have so much wealth because the lobbyists force the politicians to pass legislation creating cartels and monopolies in exchange for campaign financing.

        • Bill G Wilminton NC

          We do not have Laissez Faire Capitalism what we have is called Crony Capitalism.

          Laissez Faire is unfettered markets !.

          We have been moving slowly away from Laissez Faire Capitalism BY THE DESIGN of the NWO Globalist Elites starting in 1913 with the passage of The Federal Reserve Act.

          All products of commerce are supposed to have the price set by supply and demand” ALL PRODUCTS” even money… as interest rates are also set by demand not by DECREE lol of the federal reserve.

          Mises vs Keynesian Economics….Keynesian has given us what we have now lol…. negative interest rates, pay to deposit your money in the bank, farmers paid to not grow crops lol WHAT A JOKE but all created to bring this country to its knees and then usher in the NEW WORLD ORDER.

            “…We have been moving slowly away from Laissez Faire Capitalism BY THE DESIGN of the NWO Globalist Elites starting in 1913….”

            we had to pass anti-monopoly laws (the Sherman Act 1890, the Clayton Act 1914, and the Federal Trade Commission Act 1914.) because monopolies are the natural consequence of unfetter capitalism

        • orsobubu

          No, my friend. You confuse communism with some form of socialism inside a state capitalistic system. Communism for soviets was their false ideology, in the same way that free market economy is our ideology, an obvious falsity. Both USA and USSR were (and are, together with Europe, Japan, China, etc) capitalistic economies in their highest and decadent stage of imperialism. Never in the history of the world a communist state was built. Lenin too never said he established communism, he said he edified the state capitalism. Communism implies absence of money, of market, of banks, of wage work, so it is a revolutionary program for our future. Marx never said what you wrote: communism is the historical logical phase after the collapse of capitalism, but it is not a certainty; if workers don’t organize to seize the power, war and counter-revolution will arrive instead, just like after the big crisis in last century; this philosophical doctrine is called dialectical materialism. If you look for Venus Project you could have a naive glimpse of what communism could be, it is not the social pauperism you was yaught to think, but the next higher stage of mankind, historically necessary because capitalism cannot manage any more the huge productivity rate of a robotized society, when you could have huge amounts of fantastic goods but no enough capitals to buy and invest because of the fall of profit rate caused by unemployment and automation. I suggest start from the books Antiduhring by Engels, then The Materialist Conception of History by Marx, then What is to be done by Lenin.

        Get off your bs. All blue states are much more in dire situation. Look at Michigan and California.

      • Matt M

        You do understand the demographics of these states, right? Supposed “poor” states such as Alabama and Mississippi have like 30% minority populations whereas supposedly “rich” blue states such as Vermont are like 97% white.
        These “Blue states” also have a price of living that is WAY higher than these other states, so you are comparing apples to oranges.
        Sorry… you have no idea what you are talking about. Luckily for the “liberal socialist states” they are apart of a country that have been very Capitalist up until now. Otherwise they would not seem so well off. It’s sort of like a “windfall”. They should consider themselves lucky.

    Can’t trust our media. Best days are ahead and we can’t find enough folks to employ? Then stop killing them in the womb! Better days? By what empirical data or evidence can that be supported by? Because dear leader wishes it to be so, or what?

    And all sides have no solution to all this even though solutions exist. Solving problems doesn’t get them power; pretending to have answersand making it worse for us does it for them.

    Besides; evil and wickedness already lost! The Good Lord, Jesus Christ lives. He already performed the Atonement. We can be saved by obedience to His laws and ordinances of His Gospel. He is coming again to rule the earth, renew it as a paradise such as Eden was, and set things right.

    Let the radicals and usurpers battle it out. I’m going to eat pizza, watch some reruns of Top Gear, Looney Tunes, and whatever else the wife and kids want. I will be faithful to Christ and do what I can for society’s betterment, and I won’t condone the paths many are taking now.

      Just a reminder to the trolls: I can’t see you!

      Got my own trollblocking program. I don’t see your name, don’t see your insane thoughts, and I certainly can’t reply (not that anyone actually can respond to lunacy).

      All I see is this, “…” That’s it. And there’s so much of it!

      For a solution to your dilemmas; I recommend an appointment with a therapist that specializes in NPD and other forms of narcissism (of which SJW’s, Feminazi’s, homosexuals, radicals, etc. are known to have deficiencies in the cerebral cortex due to poor environment needed for good child development.) A specialist is able to properly treat the problem by jump-starting neuro-pathway stimulation and helping you finally grow and develop into a functional member of society.


    When people kill black stallions to eat…the situation must be very complicated but this in the city and i guess they dont know nothing about agriculture or hunting….i guess people in the countryside can do pretty well…if they stored seeds and they have water, they can produce their own food and they always can hunt…without killing those horses…because they can cost a fortune to the right buyer…eating them its just stupid.

    If the liberals are so loving and caring for all races of peoples, then why haven’t they been shipping food to those starving socialists.
    Birds of a feather are supposed to flock together?

    I am sure that some big oil corp would be willing to trade some of America’s grain for tankers of their oil.

    Why haven’t the leaders wised up and formed mass groups of farming communities, and provided the means to grow millions of lbs of potatoes and beans? It doesn’t make any sense that people anywhere in the world in this modern age have to go hungry. I have a feeling God is shaking His head in disgust at such stupidity and laziness.

  • Jun 21, 2016 Grocery shopping during Venezuela’s food shortages

    This week Venezuelans are lining up to validate their signatures on a recall referendum for President Maduro. Among the reasons for Maduro’s unpopularity is that more and more people are starting to wonder where their next meal is coming from. These days, those who have enough Venezuelan currency (now trading at 1,000 bolivars to the dollar on the black market) to buy food often have a hard time finding any.

  • Rick

    The question I ask, is at what point do the people rise up against this socialist government and overthrow the leaders? I’m sure government officials are eating pretty well there.

    • alan

      I have always heard miss three meals and its over. Matter of time and we’ll see.

      • Strider73

        IIRC the critical point is nine meals (three days without food). Then the SHTF.

  • JC Teecher

    I don’t think we will see things quite as bad as Venezuela is, or will even become, as things disintegrate further. It can get much worse.
    However; we do have some sad days ahead, due to a spiritual gourd thumping coming.

    I will not bore folks with the repetitive reasons why, but we all know the three biggies, which started in 1963. We, as a majority ruling nation, have allowed the acceptance of everything ungodly to permeate all aspects of civilized life in these United States. We the people, as a majority, by recent polling numbers, overwhelming (by 60%) are in support of another four years of Obama.

    The list of abominable things done by this administration just keep piling up week after week. People have become totally blinded and brainwashed. One has to wonder and ask, “Do that many people love Hitllery, or do that many people just hate the Donald, and common sense values”.? Not that I am saying the Donald is a saint, but he does offer an opportunity, as a gop representative to stop some of the craziness that is sure to come with four more years of liberalism, and guaranteed cronyism, ruling the nation.

    By some of the things he is saying, it sometimes feels as though he is throwing the “movement, by the middle class conservatives”, under the bus. It does not take a rocket scientist to see the possibilities. When I see him harp on insignificant insults by the left, instead of keeping the main important subjects on the forefront, then I think back to the reported telephone conversation between him and the Clintons last year after he decided to run (maybe even right before), but that was/is a flag up for me, just like ole slick willie making a supposed unannounced visit with the head of the Justice Dept on the tarmac.

    What ever happens in Nov, will happen, and people will get what they have coming to them. My time is so close to the end that I will not shed a tear either way, but; for the millions of younger generations, that may possibly live the remainder of their lives as poor transients, I do feel for what they are awaiting.

    Hopefully, true Patriots and Christians will prevail as the majority again soon, and the tables will turn, so young children do not have to resort to eating from the dog and pony show.

    Happy Daze are here again. You gotta love that one. The song was written and became popular in 1929. Anybody know what happened in 1929?
    It was later used in the Democratic convention at the height of the great depression. When FDR was selected as the Democratic canadate for president. He later lead the country into WW2.
    So let the good times roll! Everybody sing it out. Happy Daze are here again! If elected. Killarys finger will be on that big red nuclear button. So don’t worry folks everything is fine!
    Oh BTW Horse meat is pretty good tasting. If you get hungry come to Nevada. There are plenty of those worthless wild horses wandering around the range destroying it. You would be welcome to eat all you can.

      Why is it that people like you are so brained washed to think the government is completely responsible for all that is wrong with this country. It’s doesn’t take a genius to realize the CEO and corporations have created unfair markets allowing a few to have cartel and monopoly controls over pricing. And the CEO’s are able to keep wages depressed or dropping because of inflation. With people like you the purchasing power of the median worker’s wage is not even part of the conversation. It really doesn’t matter what you pay in taxes. What does matter is the purchasing power of your take home pay. How can you complain about the government and taxes when the cost of goods and services along with wages are equally as important. You are all a bunch of brain washed thought drones working for the CEOs.

  • df NJ

    What I find amazing about FDR was him getting 90% marginal tax rates. What the heck was happening back then that the people with power and privilege would actually agreed to go along with that rate. My God, Gover Norquist would crap in his pants if a 90% marginal tax rate bill were past.

    “An old English judge once said: ‘Necessitous men are not free men.’ Liberty requires opportunity to make a living – a living decent according to the standard of the time, a living which gives man not only enough to live by, but something to live for.

    For too many of us the political equality we once had won was meaningless in the face of economic inequality. A small group had concentrated into their own hands an almost complete control over other people’s property, other people’s money, other people’s labor – other people’s lives. For too many of us life was no longer free; liberty no longer real; men could no longer follow the pursuit of happiness.

    Against economic tyranny such as this, the American citizen could appeal only to the organized power of government.”

    Speech before the 1936 Democratic National onvention


    If you have a subsistence lifestyle then you know what i m talking about…..If they run out of fuel a horse can provide transportation…. can replace your tractor to plow the farm or any fraction of land to produce food…and you know that you dont need to buy food to your horse he can eat grass….unless you live in a desert…If you need to cover great distances to hunt but no fuel or money to buy…. you going on foot with a empty belly?.Anybody who understands a little about agriculture or surviving understands that eating a horse is the last thing you do….So in my opinion is stupid and you know little about farming…

      Horse is quite prized in Japan.. They pay a good price, and that’s why horse meat didn’t make it in the USA (from my old roommate who owned a horse).

      I remember as a kid, the Hog killing days in Nov/Dec.
      Nothing smelled so bad as fresh Hog meat being processed.
      Nothing, as far as cooking meat goes, smelled as good as fresh tenderloin frying on the wood stove, and Grandma’s cat head biscuits in the oven.

      Grandpa always ate the pork tongue.
      I could not bring myself to try it, nor the the brains and jowls. Many folks that were raised in the early 1900’s ate pork all the time, even though their bibles spoke heavily against it.
      Granny always made the comment that they were so poor during the depression that they ate everything connected to the hog but the tail and the squeal.

      Oh yea, my little sister loved to gnaw on pickled pigs feet, and then to further gross me out, would drink the juice from the jar.

      I guess i could substitute some cans of spotted dog, for the hard times, with the other white meat, that never goes bad…hoofs and all.

    –Confiscation of gold.

    –Unstable personality that may start WWIII.

    –7 Supreme Court Justices who do not believe in a Constitution.

  • For most people, taking such a creature as the horse and slaughtering him is unthinkable, especially being Native American, doing such a thing would most definitely have to be a last resort. The horse was eaten with great sorrow without a doubt. This is an indication like no other, that the situation in Venezuela is desperate and having read this, I understand why people are protesting the Olympics in Rio because perhaps their situation is about to mirror that of Venezuela’s soon.
    If America ever reaches this level of food shortage, the people will eat each other.

    Hunger is one of many temptations we all will face as a test of our faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus. Satan tempted Jesus when he was hungry and he will tempt us when we are hungry too. He said this to Jehovah God about humans: “Skin for skin! A man will give all he has for his own life.” (Job 2:4)

    In other words, satan accuses us of being so selfish that we will resort to anything to save our own life. But Jesus proved satan to be a liar. “When Jesus was led out into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit to be tempted by the devil and became very hungry after fasting for 40 days and 40 nights, the devil came and said to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, change these stones into loaves of bread.’ But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People need more than bread for their life; they must feed on every word of God.” (Matt 4:1-4 NLT)

    So Jesus did not resort to selfish and wicked acts as justification to satisfy his hunger pangs. Instead he trusted in God “preferring to die rather than turn on God.” (Hebrews 11:35 NLT) He placed his hope on “the joy he knew would be his afterward.” (Hebrews 12:2 NLT) As followers of Jesus, we must be the same way. There is never justification to disobey any of God’s laws.

    Jesus went through every human suffering that we will collectively experience (as His Body) to show us how to prove that we have true faith and ‘self-sacrificing’ love for both God and neighbor. That is why love for God and neighbor are the two greatest commandments. (Matt 22:36-40; 2 Cor 1:5) If we follow these two simple commandments like Jesus did, we will obey all the other commandments in the law and that is what the love of God means. (1 John 5:3; John 14: 23, 24)

    If we love Jehovah our God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and love our neighbor as ourselves, we will have no room (need) left in us for selfishness, which leads to every sort of evil. God will then bless us by giving us true happiness and we will be fulfilled. (Ecclesiastes 2:26)


    After Jesus made it clear to satan that he will never betray His God and Father, Jehovah, and sent the devil away, he left him alone and God sent the angels to care for him and attend to his needs.” (Matthew 4:10, 11) Jesus showed us by His example how we too can send the devil away and maintain our loyalty to God no matter how much the devil tries to tempt us. And if we are faithful in sharing in the sufferings of Jesus, we will also share in His glory (happiness) in the coming Kingdom of God! (Romans 8:17) The Scriptures assure us that “God is faithful. He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear but along with the temptation, He will make the way out in order for you to be able to endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13 NWT)


    The Israelites were fed with miraculous food and drank water from a miraculous rock “and that rock was Christ” (Exodus 16; 1 Cor 10:3-4); Elijah was supplied with food by the ravens and told to drink water from the Kerith brook (1Kings 17:4); and one hundred of God’s prophets who were in danger were hidden in caves and supplied with food and water (1 Kings 18:13).


    God says, “My servants will eat but you will go hungry; My servants will drink but you will go thirsty.” (Isaiah 65:13 NLT) “They will survive through hard times; even in famine they will have more than enough.” (Psalm 37:19 NLT) “You will laugh at destruction and famine and need not fear the beasts of the earth.” (Job 5:22 NIV) By trusting in Jesus, our needs will be cared for and our hunger pangs will be satisfied even with very tiny amounts of food through the power of Holy Spirit and with the help of the Holy Angels at his command.

    But as for the unrepentant, God says, “You will eat but never have enough. Your hunger pangs and emptiness will still remain. And though you try to save your money, it will come to nothing in the end. You will save a little, but I will give it to those who conquer you. You will plant crops but not harvest them. . .” (Micah 6:13-16 NLT) So God will see to it that those who refuse to listen to Him, obey Him and who remain hostile toward Him will never be satisfied. Thus they will resort to more and more wickedness to relieve their hunger to the point that they will end up eating their own family members (Leviticus 26:29; Ezekiel 5:10; Duet 28:53-57) and finally their own flesh. (Isaiah 49:26)

    This is why there is no room in Jehovah God’s family for a selfish person. They will turn on anyone.


    So let us pray for each other all around the world (especially our brothers in Christ), not just in Venezuela but throughout Africa, North Korea, India and Asia who have been starving for decades, yet “nobody cares.” (Jeremiah 30:17; Joel 2:25, 26; Isaiah 60:15, 16 NLT) Ask God in
    the name of Jesus to forgive us of our sins just as we have forgiven one
    another; give us our daily bread; lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one; and help us to endure His cleansing fire so that our hearts may be scrubbed of every trace of selfishness that leads to every sort of evil. (Matt 6:9-13) Beg God to make His love perfect in each of our hearts; bring us to godly sorrow for our sins of IDOLATRY and REBELLION against Him (Isa 22:12-14 NLT; 2 Cor 7:10, 11; Luke 3:8-14); make our faith in Jesus perfect (Rev 3:18; Heb 12:2); and empower us with the Holy Spirit (the spirit of power, and of love, and of a sound mind) (1 John 4:4; 2 Timothy 1:7); so that we can come out of His refining fire (Zech 13:9; 1Pet 1:7) purer than the finest gold (as a pure child of God) like Jesus is for His eternal glory.
