Update of Lawlessness and Violence

Increasing ‘Distress of Nations,’ (5) Lawlessness, Violence, Rebellion, Protest and Anarchy; BLM activists march in support of protesters caught LOOTING and RIOTING and arrested overnight in Chicago, IL (US)

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 be interpreted that lawlessness and violence shall abound, including at the civil level.

‘Distress of Nations’ Luke 21:25

iBlack Lives Matter (BLM) protesters marched in Chigaco in an act of solidarity with more than 100 people who were arrested during unrest and violence on Sunday night.

More than 100 individuals were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, looting, and battery against the police on Sunday night into Monday, NBC Chicago reported.

Protesters gathered at South Loop police station, where they believed that those arrested are being held in custody.

“That is reparations,” Ariel Atkins, a BLM organiser told the broadcaster. “Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.

“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” she said. “That makes sure that person has clothes.”

More than 400 officers reportedly responded to the unrest, which saw 13 police officers injured, according to Chicago police.

“This was not an organised protest. Rather, this was an incident of pure criminality,“ Police Superintendent David Brown said.

The rioting reportedly began after officers shot and wounded a man, identified as 20-year-old Latrell Allen, who police alleged fired at officers.

Mr Allen has now been charged with attempted murder of police officers.

“This person fired shots at our officers,” Supt Brown said. according to NBC Chicago. “Officers returned fire and struck the individual.”

BLM organisers pointed out that none of the officers involved in the shooting had body cameras which investigators confirmed on Monday, the broadcaster reported.

“Police say a lot of things,” Ms Atkins said of the shooting.

Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a Democrat, condemned the violence on Monday, ordering limited access to downtown beginning on Monday evening, The New York Times reported.

“We are waking up in shock this morning,” Ms Lightfoot said at a news conference according to the newspaper. “What occurred downtown and in surrounding communities was abject criminal behaviour, pure and simple.”

BLM Chicago reportedly told the mayor on Monday that civil unrest will continue in the city until “the safety and well-being of our communities is finally prioritised”.

“The mayor clearly has not learned anything since May, and she would be wise to understand that the people will keep rising up until the Chicago Police Department is abolished and our Black communities are fully invested in,” the group said in a statement.

Police are said to be setting up barriers and raising bridges in downtown Chicago in an attempt to prevent more looting in the Central Business District as the rally continues.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).
