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; EXTINCTION REBELLION STARTS NEW SEASON OF ‘MASS REBELLIONS’ WORLDWIDE
Euronews. September 1, 2020
Environmental campaign group Extinction Rebellion (XR) has today begun its new season of ‘mass rebellions’.
Starting in London’s Parliament Square, the activists have 10 days of demonstrations planned to highlight the urgency of the climate emergency. Protest events in other major UK cities such as Manchester and Cardiff will also take place, including a “carnival of corruption” and a “walk of shame” outside the Bank of England.
However, no boats or vehicles may form part of the processions this time, according to the Metropolitan Police. The new legislation comes after the famous XR boat bearing the slogan ‘Tell the Truth’ was moored to the tarmac of London’s Oxford Circus in summer 2019, in order to block traffic in the city centre.
Across Europe and the rest of the world the movement is picking up again as lockdown measures are lifted, with hundreds of thousands of people taking to the streets. From Poland to Australia, mass civil disobedience is taking place in the form of road blockades and sit-ins.
In Turkey, activists are supporting the protection of Mount Ida from a Canadian gold mine, protestors in Taiwan are marching to demand clean air and a cut in coal use, and ‘rebels’ in Helsinki have just finished a 12-day hunger strike.
As part of their demonstrations, Extinction Rebellion is fighting for the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill (CEE Bill) to be passed in the UK. This is an alliance bill written by scientists, lawyers and activists, alongside support from businesses and charities, and has the potential to become the most significant move forward since the Climate Change Act 2008.
“This Bill outlines the path needed to avoid the catastrophe outlined by the United Nations…it is farsighted aiming to protect those at risk now and in the future,” said Kumi Naidoo, former International Executive Director of Greenpeace International and Secretary General of Amnesty International.
PROTESTING AGAINST THE BURNING OF THE AMAZON
Back in 2019, XR organised a protest outside London’s Brazilian embassy at short notice in response to the burning of the Amazon Rainforest.
Several hundred activists peacefully protested in front of the embassy as a public demonstration designed to put pressure on Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro. In one Instagram post, XR posted a chilling animation of a burning pair of lungs with details of the event underneath.
“FRIDAY AT 11, YOUR NEAREST BRAZILIAN EMBASSY. We gather in outrage, in grief and in despair outside the Brazilian embassy tomorrow.”
Down at the Brazilian embassy, campaigner Kaija Coates told us she thought it was more important to attend protests rather than just “tweet and post about them on Instagram” as the crisis in the Amazon “is getting more and more pressing”. She went on to say that the setting of the Brazilian embassy was particularly important due to the need for government intervention.
“It exposes where corporate greed and capitalism meet environmental issues. It’s not just individuals’ responsibilities now, I think this is a real governmental issue.”
Saskia Martić, a 16-year-old school girl pictured here holding her poignant, maths-themed sign, spoke to us too. She explained how she had decided to become a campaigner after feeling she wasn’t learning enough about environmental issues in Geography at school, saying “I was just so angry about it”.
Saskia was inspired by Greta Thunberg and expressed her hopes for the future, after having collected her GCSE exam results the same week.
“I got my GCSE results yesterday and I was thinking, this isn’t the only result that is determining my future, it’s all this too. It seems inevitable that the world is going to end and we’re all going to combust into flames – but it’s really not. If we all made more of an effort, this doesn’t have to be our future.”
Numerous celebrities and public figures drew attention to the Amazon wildfires, due to a lack of mainstream media coverage at the time, by tweeting and posting on Instagram.

. . . “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.

. . . “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).
