Update of Lawlessness and Violence

Past 10 Days. Increasing ‘Distress of Nations’, (5) Lawlessness, Violence, Rebellion, Protest and Anarchy; Bulgaria: Justice minister resigns as anti-corruption protest passes 50 (5) consecutive days

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.

Matthew 12:25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

Mark 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.

Mark 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Luke 11:17 But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth.

Luke 12:53The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

Luke 21:25, Distress of Nations.

Past 10 Days. Increasing ‘Distress of Nations’, (5) Lawlessness, Violence, Rebellion, Protest and Anarchy; Bulgaria: Justice minister resigns as anti-corruption protest passes 50 (5) consecutive days

Protesters have been out on the streets of Bulgarian capital Sofia for more than 50 consecutive days, demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Boyko Borissov and his government.

Bulgaria’s justice minister Danail Kirilov resigned on Wednesday amid criticism of his failure to address corruption as the country faced a fiftieth consecutive day of anti-government protests.

Kirilov is the fifth government minister to resign since protests swept the Balkan country in July in response to raids on the offices of President Rumen Radev, a vocal critic of the incumbent government.

For nearly two months, protesters have demanded prime minister Boyko Borissov and prosecutor general Ivan Geshev step down amid alleged links to mafia and oligarchs.

Barricades in Sofia and other cities across the country, including Varna and Plovdiv, remained in place on Thursday as protesters continued to voice their anger at alleged government corruption, including a controversial proposal for a new constitution that would keep the current centre-right government in power.

A nationwide protest has been called for Wednesday, September 2, the date the government is expected to give its decision on Kirilov’s resignation.

“We don’t feel that before 2 September this will happen because the government is desperately trying to stay in power,” Maria Mateva, an activist with Bulgarian NGO Justice for All, told Euronews.

“The protests continue. And it’s not just Sofia protesting.”

Mateva has attended protests in Sofia and her hometown of Burgas since they began in July. While Kirilov’s resignation has been welcomed, it is unlikely to assuage public anger.

“I think the resignation of the government is one point, and the other that is equally or more important is the resignation of the prosecutor general [Geshev],” she said.

“There is a proposal for a new constitution by the current government. If they have enough support to make an official proposal – they need to have it in the Cabinet, they don’t have it yet – that would mean calling a constitutional assembly.

“If they succeed to propose this new constitutional project, they will remain in power.

“We are trying to demand resignations not to allow this to happen.”

The new constitution proposed by Borissov’s ruling GERB party, which was drafted by the former justice minister, would give sweeping new powers to the office of the prosecutor general with fewer mechanisms to hold it accountable.

Kirilov has also been criticised for not pushing through reforms to tackle judicial corruption and for failing to nominate a candidate for prosecutor general last year, leaving Geshev as the sole candidate for the post.

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “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).
