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; ‘Not to be left behind in worldwide anarchy’, history toppling spreads to Canada as protesters in Montreal tear down statue of John Macdonald, country’s 1st prime minister
30 Aug, 2020 RT
Protesters in Montreal pulled down and defaced a statue of John Macdonald, Canada’s first prime minister, as police stood by, echoing attacks on controversial historical figures in the US.
The statue’s head was broken off as it slammed to the ground from its high pedestal on Saturday in Montreal’s Dominion Square. Activists were shielded from view with umbrellas and sheets as they unbolted the statue, which was pulled from behind with a strap around its neck.
Hundreds of protesters had marched to the site to call for defunding the police. They reportedly were organized by the Coalition for BIPOC Liberation, which bills itself as “a collective of social justice groups and community activists led by black and indigenous people.”
Police asked the crowd to disperse on a loudspeaker but didn’t intervene as the statue was destroyed. None of the vandals were arrested.
While law enforcement took a hands-off approach to the toppling, it has drawn condemnation from the city mayor. Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante said that she would rather put controversial monuments “in context” rather than knock statues off their pedestals. She also suggested “adding more monuments that are more representative of the society to which we aspire.”
While some have praised the vandals, justifying the uprooting of the statue while citing Macdonald’s policies towards indigenous peoples, others questioned police inaction.
“I’m honestly appalled that this horrific violence has spread to Canada,” one social media user said.
I hope that these domestic terrorists feel the full force of the law and are swiftly prosecuted.” Another described the incident as “channeling the ISIS approach to our culture and history.”
Macdonald, an immigrant to Canada from Scotland, served as prime minister from 1867 to 1873 and from 1878 to 1891. He’s ranked by historians as one of Canada’s three most accomplished prime ministers, but he has become a controversial figure in recent years. A statue of Macdonald was removed from the steps of Victoria City Hall and placed in storage in 2018, with city councilors citing the father of the Confederation’s role as “a leader of violence against indigenous peoples.”
Macdonald is faulted for championing church-run residential schools that tried to assimilate indigenous children to Western ways. Children were removed from their families and forbidden to speak their native languages in a system that critics have called cultural genocide. Many were exposed to physical or sexual abuse.
