Love Waxing Cold – Lawlessness – Violence – Homicide
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, shootings, abortion, sexual attacks, 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.

Hong Kong (CNN) Eight young children were killed in a school attack in the central Chinese province of Hubei on Monday. It was their first day of class.
The attack took place at the Chaoyangpo Elementary School in Hubei’s Enshi City. According to a statement from the local government, a 40-year-old man surnamed Yu attacked students at the school at 8 a.m. local time, when students would have been arriving for class.
He is in police custody.
Eight were killed and another two were injured. No details were given on the students’ injuries or their individual ages. In China, elementary school children range in age from 6 years old to 13.
“The local party committee and government is all out organizing rescue and remedial work,” the statement from Enshi City government said.
A separate statement by the Enshi City police was originally posted on Chinese social media site Weibo but was later removed without explanation. The hashtag “school criminal case in Hubei” had gained 120 million views on Weibo as of Tuesday morning.
Attacks on schoolchildren in China have happened before. In October, at least 14 children at a kindergarten in Chongqing were slashed by a woman with a kitchen knife.
In April 2018, nine students were killed and others injured after a male suspect began attacking students in Shaanxi province.
September 2 marked the start of a new school semester in China after the summer break.
According to state-run tabloid Global Times, the local government is providing psychological counseling services to the students who witnessed or were injured in Monday’s attack.
