Along with pestilences, Jesus told us lawlessness will abound in the last days. I believe the widespread lawless behaviour, by young people in particular, to a terrible act of police brutality in the USA is an indication we are entering the last days.
“And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:12-14
Curfews are in effect or imminent in more than a dozen US cities facing rising unrest. The start times Saturday evening range from 6 pm in parts of South Carolina to 10 pm around Ohio. People are being told to get off the streets beginning at 8 pm. or 9 pm in Atlanta, Denver, Los Angeles and Seattle.
A curfew is in effect for a second night in and around Minneapolis, though reports are emerging that police have begun to charge people who are flouting it. Thousands ignored the Friday night curfew and peaceful protests gave way to violence late into the night.
the answer to anarchy in our streets? REPENTANCE
Repentance is God’s gift to us. When it’s taught by example to our children a healthy awe and respect to the Living God is planted. Repentance then becomes a lifestyle which thereafter can grow in a mighty way, uncovering God’s unique calling for that child to advance God’s Kingdom.
Repentance is the key to submitting to God. Once we’ve submitted, we can easily resist the devil. He then has to flee.
