Matthew 24:12 “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.”
Raising “Cain” in the last days of this dispensation of Grace continues to become more treacherous and is a specific sign of the times. Headlining the “news” on a regular basis we read in the Star, hear on WMER-ABC radio news or broadcast on one of the TV stations that crime, drugs and murders in Lauderdale County are on the increase. Could this be one of the signs of the coming of Jesus Christ?
Jesus called Satan a murderer (John 8:44) from the beginning. The scripture called Adam and Eve's son, Cain, a murderer (1 John 3:12). These days in which we live are a time of violence, and murder and America looks for a new World Order.
The senseless violence, murder and iniquity in Meridian, USA and in the rest of the World demonstrates the fact that man has no regard for life. By definition, God is Life, (1 John 5:11) and any anti-Life activity of Satan and all lawless religious factions are totally anti-God. In these last days before the return of Messiah to earth, again, God is allowing a new phase of demonic activity upon this country.
The violence and murder has escalated as God continues to judge our nation. Jesus told His disciples a sign of the end (Matt24:12) would be increased lawlessness. Not only will we see lawlessness in our own country, but also, in all the world. Henry Kissinger looks for a New World Order.
Meridian news outlets continue to announce the “asphalt jungle” of drive by shootings, drugs which precipitate robbery and the murder of four people this year.
Lawlessness demonstrates the total breakdown of the home and the Church. Yes, as a child I was drug to church, choir practice and every time the Church doors opened. Did I like it? No, but one of the basic laws of education is repetition and anyone will learn.
Take your family to Church and look for the blessings of God. God is the only answer to the New World Order.
Lawlessness and murder are not confined to the borders of the U.S. In Nigeria, Africa, 300 girls have been abducted from a school by Islamic extremists. The Mexican drug cartels have engaged U.S. gangs to enforce cartel drug laws in the U.S. with necessary force that includes murder.
Public order has disappeared in "the new South Africa." Crime is rampant with a serious crime every 17 seconds in Cape Town and police have 1,227,047 unsolved cases under review, according to Crime Investigation Services.
Violence and murder have turned some cities into war zones. In America a million and a half babies are murdered annually in the womb through the violence of abortion. Violence short of murder is everywhere, even on our highways, where “road rage” has become a common occurrence. Why is there so much violence?
The Apostle Paul said that in the last days man would be brutal or savage and untamed. He also said that in the last days man would not be lovers of the good which translates into haters of the good and of God.
It is interesting to note what the scripture says in Revelation 9:21, during Tribulation, “Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”
The Orlando Sentinel, 5/10/14 stated. "While the severity of actions range from simple cheating at school to pushing drugs, to cold-blooded murders ... the depth of the problem has reached a point where common decency can no longer be described as common.
Somewhere, somehow ... the traditional value system got disconnected for a disturbing number of America's next generation."
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. (21) Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes. Isaiah 5:20
