Lawlessness Will Abound: a Sign of End Times
As many of you know, I have an article posted on Signs of End Times, where I discuss the various signs of the end times that Jesus described in the book of Matthew, Luke and Mark – wars and rumors of wars, pestilences,famines, earthquakes in various place. See “Are We in the End Times” for more on end times events.
I have just added a new article on “Lawless: a Sign of the End Times”. It discusses how over the last few months, across America, and around the world, we seem to be entering into a state of “lawlessness”. Indeed, some cities and counties are:
- De-funding their police departments
- Disbanding law enforcement
- Declaring their communities “lawless”
Its hardly believable, but it is coming true. Make no mistake. Jesus described “Lawlessness” as one of the signs of the end times. Paul also discusses this as one of the end times signs. Hear the words of Jesus as he mentions this fact in His message about end times events:
Matthew 24:12: “And because lawlessness will abound,
the love of many will grow cold”
The the New Testament, the writer Paul – moved by the Holy Spirit – describes in 2 The 7-9 a “mystery of lawlessness” that is already at work in the world:
- 2 Th 7: “For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.”
2 Th 8: “And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming”.
2 Th 9: “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,
This “mystery” of lawlessness is the force of evil, working through financiers, governors, majors, and other politicians. There is a demonic force at work behind all of this – – the hijacking of the Covid-19 virus to create a pandemic of fear, the destruction of economies around the world to remove security and life support from millions, and now the violent protests designed to flame the fires of hatred among people.
This is the work of the evil one, pure and simple. As Jesus said, he is a liar and the father of lies. He is the destroyer, and wants to rule the world through the power of an “anti-Christ” – a one-world ruler. He knows that his time is short, and that the Messiah Jesus is coming and will one day consume him with the “breathe of His mouth”.
