Utter Lawlessness :: By Candy Austin

Proverbs 28:4 “They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law contend with them.”

From Biblehub.com: Ellicott’s Commentary for English Readers “Proverbs 28:4”

They that forsake the law praise the wicked.—The mark of extreme wickedness.

But such as keep the law contend with them.—Just as the sight of ill-doing was the one thing which roused our Lord to wrath, while insults and wrongs offered to Himself were passed by unnoticed. – Source

Soulless in Seattle

In a past article, I wrote about how our oldest Prodigal moved 3k miles away in 2018, without telling us, to the ‘stupidity’ which is Seattle, Washington. We know our oldest and her husband went there because of the state’s ‘Liberal Policies,’ the Legalization of Marijuana being one of many of them. Ever since we found out she moved up there, we have heard nothing but ‘Nonstop Bad News’ concerning that place.

First, was in finding out about Seattle’s High Crime and Soaring Homeless Rate which routinely exceeds the National Average. Then there was a seismic 4.6 Magnitude Earthquake in 2019. As of this year, not only was there a manifestation of Giant Murder Hornets (Devastating to Honeybees) and the subsequent infestation of Asian Gypsy Moths (Defoliation of trees and shrubs) – to top it all off – this area had one of the First ‘Plan-demic’ Covid-19 Cases and Deaths in the U.S.!

As if all of that was not bad enough, in recent weeks the emergence of an ‘Autonomous Zone’ first called CHAZ, then later changed to CHOP, came onto the scene, which has only proven to create nothing but Insane and Utter ‘Lawlessness‘ to say the least! Instead of ‘Pandemonium,’ it is more than fair to say this is an all-out ‘Plan-demonium’!

It is hard to see all of this ‘Degradation’ going on and not think of the Participants there as Soulless, Lost, and having a Debased Mind! Even harder is to watch clips of the Rioting, Violence, and all-out Anarchy, knowing that your ‘kid’ is more than likely a part of it in some way! When I see photos on the internet concerning any ‘Seattle Debacle,’ I brace myself in the case that I might see our Prodigal’s face. After all, she has been so proud about posting her involvement in plenty of ‘Ungodly Protests and Marches’ over the years, how could I not think otherwise.

A Summer of Love

Supposedly, CHOP is to stand for ‘Capitol Hill Occupied Protest’ or CHAZ as ‘Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone ‘ – or as one comment so aptly put it – ‘Childish Hypocritical Occupational Punks. ‘ That, in my honest opinion, sounds more like what it really should stand for! To add insult to injury, the ‘Delusional Mayor’ there has called this ‘Plan-Demonium’ a ‘Summer of Love’! Say what?! So far, in this ‘No Police Zone,’ three people have been shot and one killed! This is nothing short of devastating to our American values and way of life, and it does not even begin to describe the effects that this will have on our Country!

From yahoo.com:Retailers and Residents Sue Seattle…”

A coalition of Seattle retailers, landlords and residents filed a lawsuit against the city Wednesday — arguing that they’ve faced “extensive harm” as a result of an “occupied” protest zone.

The plaintiffs are seeking damages for lost business, deprivation of property rights, and property damage. They are also asking that full public access to the area be resumed. Source

From Foxbusiness.com: “Billion-dollar investment firm leaving Seattle amid ‘unrest'”

The CEO of a billion-dollar investment firm said his company is getting out of Seattle just in time as residents accuse Mayor Jenny Durkan of letting the city’s so-called Capitol Hill Occupied Protest get out of hand and turn deadly.

Smead Capital announced the decision to move to Phoenix’s Camelback Corridor last week.

“My biggest concern for Seattle was what the business community is going to come back to, and what kind of businesses are going to come back for customers,” Smead told KTAR News.

“I keep trying to wrap my head around the fact that we have no protection, and I’ve pretty much come to terms that we have no protection here,” auto shop co-owner John McDermott told KOMO News after the shootings.

McDermott said his business, Car Tender, was broken into and no officers responded earlier in June. Source

All-Out Demonic Activity 

From a ‘Spiritual Standpoint,’ the things that have been coming out of and happening in the Seattle area for some time now are nothing short of all-out ‘Demonic Activity’! It is disheartening to see a Loved One ‘gravitate’ to such an area, because you know they are ‘under the influence’ of Satan! Make no mistake, brethren, this is just the beginning, because soon in the coming Tribulation, all of America and the entire world for that matter, will be filled with ‘such demonic activity’ that men will desire to die and will not be able to!

Revelation 9:6 “In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, but death will escape them.”

From gotquestions.org: “Sin is Lawlessness”

The follower of God will eschew lawlessness. The blessed person is described as one “whose delight is in the law of the LORD” (Psalm 1:2). “I long for your salvation, LORD,” writes the psalmist, “and your law gives me delight” (Psalm 119:174). The contrast between lawlessness and love could not be clearer: “Their hearts are callous and unfeeling, but I delight in your law” (Psalm 119:70).

Scripture makes a distinction between someone who sins, as we all do (Romans 3:10231 John 1:8), and someone who “practices lawlessness” (Matthew 7:2313:41). A lawless person is one who has given himself or herself over completely to a sinful lifestyle. Lawless people either do not believe in God or refuse to acknowledge His right to rule their lives (Psalm 14:1). Even those living in lawlessness can find forgiveness if they turn from their sin and receive Christ’s righteousness and salvation (2 Corinthians 5:21John 3:16–18).

The Antichrist who is prophesied to appear in the end times is described as a “man of lawlessness” (2 Thessalonians 2:38). Daniel says he will be a king who “will do as he pleases” (Daniel 11:36). The Antichrist will be one who knows who God is but declares himself to be above God, just as Satan did (Isaiah 14:141 John 2:224:32 Thessalonians 2:4). He is called “lawless” because he will spurn all authority and be completely given over to sin. Those who follow the Antichrist during the tribulation will follow him into lawlessness, to their own destruction. Those who receive his mark will never be able to repent and find forgiveness, but will be tormented forever in the lake of fire (Revelation 14:9–10). Source

Today is the Day of Salvation

If you have not done so already, now is the time to Repent, for today is the day of Salvation! None of us are promised tomorrow. Repentance means turning away from your Sin and Lawless Deeds and turning to Trusting in Christ for all your needs and for your Salvation!

True Saving Faith requires Belief and Trust in Jesus Christ and in what He did at the Cross by shedding His precious blood to wash away all of your Sins, and by Believing that God rose Him from the dead 3 days later, and that Jesus is coming back again soon!

Until next time… Maranatha!
