America Divided Cut

‘Love Waxing Cold Among Many’; Gun violence and mass shootings leaves over 15 (5+5+5) fatalities across U.S. cities Memorial Day Weekend.

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.

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Five (5)-fold Evils Born of the Spirit of Iniquity:

  1. P … “I will ascend into heaven.” (position)
  2. R … “I will rule at my throne above the stars of God.” (rule)
  3. I … “I will be idolized or worshipped.” (idolized)
  4. D … “I will be dazzling.” (dazzling)
  5. E … “I will be equal to God.” (equal)

… “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most high. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.” (Isaiah 14:12-15).

Commentary: Satan’s five (5) “I WILLS,” have his evil fingerprints over everything evil in the book of Revelation. His desire to counterfeit everything that God accomplished through his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, is manifested in the Babylonian system (compared to heaven), Babylonian City (compared to New, Heavenly Jerusalem), Babylonian False Mystery Religion (compared to the true worship of God/Jesus Christ), beast/antichrist (compared to Jesus Christ), false prophet (compared to John the Baptist), lake of fire death (compared to eternal life through Jesus Christ). Satan is the consummate ‘puppet master’, pulling the strings of the beast/antichrist and the false prophet to deceive mankind with his false, evil promises compared to the truth of salvation provided and offered by Jesus Christ.

Revelation 13:2-4

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

Five (5) references to ‘beast.’ 5 denotes satanic influence over evil men.

‘Love Waxing Cold Among Many’; Gun violence and mass shootings leaves over 15 (5+5+5) fatalities across U.S. cities Memorial Day Weekend.

(CNN)Mass shootings and gun violence took the lives of at least 16 people with multiple people wounded across the United States last weekend.

Five people were killed in a weekend of violence in Chicago while eight people were killed in mass shootings in Oregon, Indiana, Utah, and Michigan. A high school student was killed in New Jersey and two people were killed early Monday morning in Florida.

Eight people were wounded at a graduation party in Cleveland. In New Orleans, eight people were injured in a single shooting incident. Five people were wounded in a shooting in Oakland.

CNN defines a mass shooting as an incident that results in four or more casualties (dead or wounded) excluding the shooter(s).

In a Monday news conference, Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said murders in the city are up 5% (5) and shootings are up almost 18% (6+6+6) compared to this date a year ago.

“Much of the violence that we have seen over this weekend and throughout the year is driven by a gang culture. Gang culture of retaliation and revenge. Some call it street justice,” Brown said.

Fifty-five (5) people were shot in 41 incidents in Chicago between 6 p.m. Friday and 11:59 p.m. Sunday, according to Chicago Police Department (CPD) spokesperson Kellie Bartoli.

In the five (5) separate fatal shooting incidents in Chicago, nobody has been taken into custody, according to CPD.

Eight people were wounded Sunday morning in the 8900 block of South Cottage Grove after occupants in a silver sedan fired into a group of people standing on a sidewalk, according to CPD. Six men and two women ranging from 28 to 38 years old were hit by gunfire and transported to local hospitals. The suspects remain at large.

In a separate incident, an individual in a car shot at a 34-year-old man standing on a porch, striking the man in his leg, according to CPD.

Separately, a 24-year-old man was asleep when “shots were fired from outside that went through the drywall and struck him twice in the leg,” police said.

In both those cases, the shooting victims survived their wounds.

The weekend of violence comes as the CPD reported the lowest number of murders over Memorial Day weekend in 10 years.

Elsewhere across the country

More than 8,400 people have died from gun violence in the United States this year, according to the Gun Violence Archive, with over 240 mass shootings as of June 1. In May, the archive told CNN there had been a 23% uptick in deaths from gun violence so far this year.

In Portland, Oregon, police officers responded to a report of a shooting at a residence on Southeast Boise Street around 10:25 p.m. Sunday and discovered four people dead from gunshot wounds, according to a statement from the Portland Police Bureau.

Portland homicide detectives are investigating and have asked the public to assist with any germane information regarding the incident. The exact manner of death is pending an autopsy, according to police.

No information on arrests was available.

In Florida, at least two people including a 15-year-old boy were killed in an early Monday morning shooting in Miami-Dade County, according to a news release from Miami-Dade Police.

Police responded to a call of shots fired just before 2 a.m. Monday and found five people with apparent gunshot wounds, including the two who died, the release stated.

Two additional juveniles were airlifted to Kendall Regional Medical Center and were in critical and stable conditions, police said. A fifth (5) victim was transported to Jackson South Medical Center in stable condition.

Officers located the gunman, who was identified as the deceased female’s boyfriend. As officers were attempting to establish communication with the suspect, he was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

Police have not released any additional details regarding a motive, only calling this shooting “domestic related.”

Police did not provide suspect information and the investigation is ongoing.

In Indianapolis, Indiana, a Saturday shooting left two people dead and two injured, the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department said. The shooting happened in a parking lot after the victims left a business, a press release said.

Officers responded to a report of shots fired just after 2 a.m. and found four people suffering from gunshot wounds, according to the release.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene. Another man was transported to a hospital in critical condition and later died of his injuries, the release said.

Two other people, an adult male and adult female, were taken to hospitals and remain in stable condition, according to the release.

In Salt Lake City, Utah, a shooting left (5) one person dead and four others injured Sunday morning, said city police Lt. Carlos Valencia.

Police responded to a call of shots fired with reports of “multiple people laying on the grass” and found five people who had been shot, Valencia said.

Four of the victims were taken to the hospital in critical condition and are now listed in stable condition, Valencia told CNN. The fifth (5) victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police believe the shots originated from a passing car, but no suspect information or possible motive was available, Valencia said.

In New Jersey, an 18-year-old male was killed and another male teenager was injured in a shooting near a high school in Maplewood on Sunday night, said Ronald Taylor, the South Orange & Maplewood School District superintendent of schools. Both were students at Columbia High School, Taylor said.

The shooting occurred at Columbia High School’s sports complex around 9:38 p.m., according to a news release from the Essex County Prosecutor’s office.

In Fruitport, Michigan, one person died and three were injured in a shooting late Friday night, Fruitport Township Police said in a Nixle alert.

Police said three people were injured and the fourth person passed away at the scene.

8 injured at graduation party

In Cleveland, at least eight people were hospitalized following a Sunday night shooting on the city’s westside, Detective Alexander Sinclair with the Cleveland Police Department told CNN.

The shooting happened around 10 p.m. at a graduation party being held in the 3700 block of Woodbridge Avenue, police said.

The exact conditions of the injured are unknown, but police said four of the victims were taken into surgery after they arrived at the hospital. Sinclair said he didn’t know of any fatalities.

Based on preliminary information, police believe the suspect or suspects drove up to the party and began shooting. Police have not released any information on suspects or motive.

In North Carolina, Sheriff Lemmie Smith with the Greene County Sheriff’s Office told CNN “it was a party that got out of hand” at a mobile home park that led to four people getting shot early Sunday morning.

Three of the gunshot victims have been treated and released from an area hospital, and one remains in intensive care. There are no suspects currently.

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.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “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).

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).
