Update of Lawlessness and Violence

Increasing ‘Love Waxing Cold Among Many,’ five (5) hate, homicide, violence, attacks and destruction; Mexican president admits murders rising on his watch. Over 20,000 (5+5+5+5) murders during the first 7 months of 2020.

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.

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador acknowledged in a state of the nation address Tuesday that murders and extortion by organized crime gangs had increased since he came to power.

The left-wing populist, who took office in December 2018, is struggling to rein in violent crime widely blamed on the country’s drug cartels and other criminal gangs.

Lopez Obrador said in a speech at the presidential palace that intentional homicides had risen by 7.9 percent and extortion by 12.7 percent which is “fundamentally linked to so-called organized crime.”

He said that his administration’s strategy was focused on “providing work, education and welfare for people who are at risk of being recruited by criminal groups, especially the young.”

Mexico registered 20,494 murders in the first seven months of 2020, compared with 19,357 in the same period of 2018, according to official figures.

For the whole of 2019, the country registered 34,582 murders, the highest since official records started in 1997.

On the other hand, Lopez Obrador said, crimes such as kidnapping and street robbery have decreased since he took office.

The Mexican leader has been criticized by human rights groups for allowing the armed forces to continue to play a major role in the war on drugs, which was militarized in 2006.

But Lopez Obrador said that abuses had decreased on his watch.

“There is no more torture, disappearances, or massacres. Human rights are respected and the guilty are punished,” he said.

More than 290,000 people have been killed in Mexico since 2006, according to official figures that do not specify how many of the cases are linked to organized crime.

Drug cartels are engaged in bloody turf battles in areas including the capital, where authorities say the powerful Jalisco New Generation has been expanding its presence at the expense of rivals.

The bloodshed comes despite lockdown measures aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus, which has killed some 64,000 people in Mexico and battered its economy.

Responding to criticism of his government’s handling of the economic crisis, Lopez Obrador said Mexico had faced it with a formula “unique in the world.”

Seven out of 10 Mexican families are receiving some type of state economic aid, he said.

“Now all the support and loans are delivered directly to reactivate the economy from the bottom up. Priority is not given to large companies and banks.

“Now, for the good of all, the people are rescued first,” he said.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “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).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).
