Signs of the Times


The Bible describes a terrible increase in crime and immorality. This is an accurate picture of our times: with all its riots, prison overcrowding, drug and alcohol addiction, carjackings, drive-by shootings, follow-home robberies, and home invasions.

There is currently a huge spike in violence and crime that has been caused by racial unrest following the deaths of some people who were arrested by police. Ferguson, Missouri, Baltimore, Maryland and McKinney, Texas have all experienced this sort of turmoil. It is exploited by agitators, and made worse by officials with ultra-liberal agendas. Police are reluctant to make arrests and keep the peace because of the danger of personal attacks by hostile crowds on the street and a lack of support from their superiors.

As with the other signs, this problem of lawlessness is bad before The Tribulation but it will accelerate off the scale during those seven dreadful years because the Holy Spirit will no longer be acting as The Restrainer, and Antichrist will be revealed.

Black lives matter and lawlessness

July, 2016 -

Last week, FBI Director Jim Comey expressed his view that, after investigation of Hillary Clinton’s handling of State Department official business, including classified material, on her personal email server, he would not recommend criminal charges against her.

Meanwhile many people are concerned with the indiscriminate and violent treatment of blacks, And police, in turn, are being unjustly threatened by lawless rioters. The situation is getting worse because we are turning away from our Judeo-Christian values of moality.
