Blog note: Jesus indicated that one (of many) signs of the end times or the end of the age grace would be that love for one another would grow cold. Matthew 24:12, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” This can also be interpreted that lawlessness will abound. This includes violence, murder, terrorism, mass shootings, mass knife attacks, car/van attacks, chemical attacks and other similar acts of destructive and evil behavior. Yes, these things have occurred in time past. But consider the frequency, intensity and devastation of these types of attacks and mass school shootings. They are like birth pangs in frequency and intensity. This is just one part of the CONVERGENCE or CONVERGING of signs. End of note.
Report: 46 People Shot in Chicago Since Friday Night
Fox News. August 19, 2018.
At least 46 people were shot in Chicago — two of which were killed — since Friday night, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The shootings add to another weekend of violence in the Windy City, which has been ravaged by gun violence in 2018.
On Saturday, three people were shot during a back-to-school peace picnic held at a playground in the city. The violence reportedly began after a group of men showed up to the event and started fighting. The Sun-Times also reported that a 3-year-old boy was shot in the left shin Friday night on the city’s South Side.
Demonstrators took to the streets of Chicago earlier this month to call for the resignation of the city’s mayor, Rahm Emanuel (D). They blasted his administration for failing to curb the city’s gun violence epidemic. More than 1,600 people have been shot in Chicago this year. Between Saturday night and Sunday morning alone, the Sun-Times said 18 people had been shot, one fatally. Just last weekend, at least 27 people were wounded and one woman was killed by gunfire in Chicago.
