Lawlessness Is Setting the Stage for the Antichrist

The effort to defund the police has had an immediate impact on violent crime numbers. City after city is reporting a huge spike in the murder rate.

In Chicago, at least 89 people were shot over the Fourth of July weekend, with 17 of them dying, including seven-year-old Natalie Wallace in Austin, a suburb of Chicago.

The child was playing outside her grandparent’s home when three suspects got out of a white van and fired around 20 shots, with the seven-year-old getting caught up in the incident. She suffered a gunshot wound to the forehead and was pronounced dead later that day.

During a press conference, the child’s father, Nathan Wallace, said: “It is sad you hear this on the news every day a child getting killed, somebody getting killed, but you don’t think about it until it’s your own.”

Chicago has seen a shocking rise in gun violence over the last month, and on 31 May, the city recorded its most violent day since in six decades; 25 people were killed and 85 were wounded by gunfire. This year, at least 350 people have been killed in the city, and since 20 June, nine children have died after being caught up in shootings.

The leftist Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, has done everything he can to weaken and demoralize the city’s Police Department. De Blasio promised to strip away a billion dollars from the police budget, and he disbanded a plainclothes unit of approximately 600 officers. In the last few weeks, the number of shootings was about three times greater than during the same time period in 2019.

The lack of manpower on the street level makes it much harder to tackle rising felony crimes, and the growing number of illegal guns pouring into the neighborhoods adds to the problem.

Commissioner Dermot Shea, during a recent interview, was asked about the reason for high crime levels.

“It’s bail reform. It’s COVID. It’s emptying out prisons,” he said, noting that “one of the most frustrating pieces right now is a criminal justice system that is just not working. And I’m calling on Albany to fix it. Fix it now.”

“I met with the five district attorneys of New York City last week on this issue. We have thousands and thousands of cases backlogged,” said Shea.

The liberal media have been instrumental in degrading the effectiveness of law enforcement. Any mistakes the police make are highlighted by this cabal of evil. It amazes me that the American people have allowed this madness to reach a point where the press is cheering on lawless thugs that seek to destroy our nation.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo sided with the mob during a contentious interview with Mark McCloskey, the man who went viral for brandishing a gun alongside his wife as the couple protected their home from protesters. The couple told police the protesters broke a gate to get onto the private street in St. Louis, and the pair say they only retrieved their firearms when they spotted “multiple” people who were already armed.

Cuomo began the interview by asking McCloskey what it feels like to have become the “face of political resistance to the Black Lives Matter movement.” McCloskey shot back that it was a “completely ridiculous” statement and said he was simply protecting his home.

“I’m not the face of anything opposed to the Black Lives Matter movement; I was a person scared for my life,” he said. “I was a victim of a mob that came through the gate; I didn’t care what color they were.”

If the so-called Black Lives Matter protesters had murdered the McCloskeys, it’s unlikely that CNN would have reported their deaths. Just like the black people who get murdered every day in our major cities, the only deaths that matter are those that fit the liberal agenda.

The left welcomes the lawlessness because they see it as helping the Democratic ticket in the upcoming election. Being an appeaser to this type of mob is like someone who feeds a crocodile — hoping it will eat him last. The McCloskeys were for Black Lives Matter until its followers invaded their property.

This climate of lawlessness is the perfect setting for the rise of the antichrist. To have someone who will appear to be the ultimate savior of mankind, you need a problem for him to solve.

“…. And power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Rev. 13:7-8).

End-Times Eye on Israel

These commentaries have mentioned before Satan’s sleight-of-hand in diverting attention from what’s really going on, like in the old shell game called thimblerig.

The pea is placed under the one of three shells and the player is invited to guess which shell the pea is under after the shells are shuffled. The shuffling increases in speed, and soon the human eye can’t follow the movement to keep up with the shell concealing the pea.

In most cases, the player ends up the loser after betting on being able to pick the correct shell.

Like in the matter of globalist activity, where Satan and the demonic and human minions hide their true efforts to bring in their changed world order (with distractions of such activities as those of the cancel culture), the evil one diverts attention from things involving the number-one sign of these end times. He, for example, foments revolution within this nation and others of the Western world.

All the while, the nation Israel and the entire Middle East region are being rearranged, setting the stage for the great, end-times play that will see the triumphant return of Christ.

The devil, in his sin delusion, believes he is orchestrating the demise of God’s chosen people. But it is the Lord who is the master director. His omniscient hand has already written the prophetic script that will soon unfold.

So wise observers should keep their eye—their spiritual senses—on what’s happening that involves Israel. We must do this despite all of the other troubling distractions that otherwise plague us.

And there is more than enough going on in Israel and vicinity to keep us transfixed.

For example, Israel is at the center of accusations that Iran’s nuclear program has suffered yet another setback. The following explains:

Kuwait’s Al-Jarida newspaper on Friday reported that Israel was responsible for a Thursday “accident” at an Iranian nuclear facility in Natanz.

It is believed that the Natanz facility is used to enrich uranium.

According to the Al-Jarida report, the explosion was caused by an “Israeli cyber attack” which targeted the computers which control the pressure gauges inside gas containers. Tehran has allegedly lost 80% of the uranium hexafluoride gas it needs in order to enrich uranium.

The report also claimed that Israel is responsible for the Parchin blast which occurred last week.

On Thursday, Iran’s state news agency IRNA published an editorial warning that “if there are signs of hostile countries crossing Iran’s red lines in any way, especially the Zionist regime (Israel) and the United States, Iran’s strategy to confront the new situation must be fundamentally reconsidered.” (“Natanz ‘Accident’ Was Israel’s Fault,” Middle East/Israel National News, Reuters, July 3, 2020)

Iran, ancient Persia, is prophesied by Ezekiel the prophet to one day help lead a coalition to assault Israel in the Gog-Magog battle. Israel, as well as President Donald Trump for the US, has vowed Iran will never achieve development of a nuclear weapon.

The mountains of the area known in Bible times as Elam is where much of Iran’s nuclear program is hidden. Those mountains are prophesied to suffer some sort of catastrophic event. So, it is prudent to keep our eyes on this volatile region.

The entire international community, including Israel’s future attackers—Russia, Iran, Turkey, and others—are in a froth over Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s decision to annex parts of the Jordanian valley. It’s especially interesting that Pope Francis of the Roman Catholic Church has weighed in on the annexation plan. The following story frames the matter:

The Vatican, in a highly unusual move, summoned both the US and Israeli ambassadors to express the Holy See’s concern about Israel’s moves to extend its sovereignty to Jewish settlements and the Jordan Valley in the West Bank.

A Vatican statement on Wednesday said meetings with Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s secretary of state, and US Ambassador Callista Gingrich and Israeli Ambassador Oren David, took place on Tuesday.

A senior diplomatic source told Reuters that Parolin met the two envoys separately, a detail which was not clear in the Vatican statement.

It said Parolin, the Vatican’s top diplomat, expressed “the concern of the Holy See regarding possible unilateral actions that may further jeopardize the search for peace between Israelis and Palestinians, as well as the delicate situation in the Middle East.”

Israeli leaders decided in May that cabinet and parliamentary deliberations on extending Israeli sovereignty to Jewish settlements and the Jordan Valley in the West Bank, in coordination with Washington, could begin as of July 1.

But with no agreement with Washington yet on the modalities of the move under a peace proposal announced by U.S. President Donald Trump in January, and talks with the White House still underway, no cabinet session was scheduled for Wednesday.

The Vatican statement reiterated its position in support of a two state solution, saying “Israel and the State of Palestine have the right to exist and to live in peace and security, within internationally recognized borders.” (“Vatican Summons US, Israeli Envoys over Annexation Moves,” Reuters, July 2, 2020)

Pressures are building to produce a two-state solution to what the world of diplomacy sees as a Jewish problem.

Just like in Hitler’s demented mind, the globalist mindset, infected by luciferian insanity, is to blame Israel for all potential threats of war in the region. The anger against the Jewish state and the Jewish people of the world will get much worse, according to Zechariah 12:1–3.

Keep your eye on Israel, no matter what else is going on.

We Are Headed Towards Massive Racial Unrest

The whole issue of racism in America has quickly reached a level that is cultic in nature. People are being fired from their source of employment for simply saying that “all forms of racism are wrong.”

As web companies clamp down on free speech in the name of ‘social justice,’ going so far as to red-flag the President of the United States and label Christian doctrinal statements as ‘unsafe,’ one tech giant just warned the public that hate speech against ‘majority groups’ doesn’t count. Reddit wants consumers to know that you can say whatever you want about white people, and it will not be censored.

It is becoming clear that the news networks are unconcerned about a growing number of violent attacks against white citizens. An employee of Macy’s was the victim of an “unprovoked” attack by a black man. This hate crime received very little news coverage.

The punching of a 92-year-old woman, causing her to strike her head on a fire hydrant, was widely reported. The outrage should have been over the fact that this is the 103rd time Rashid Brimmage has been arrested. A guy with a long history of mental problems is able to freely walk around attacking people because of his race. If a white person was attacking African Americans on the direction from his dead mother, I doubt his mental state would stand as an excuse. I’m sure Rashid Brimmage is already back on the street, so as soon his meds wear off, he’ll be looking for his next victim.

The Defund the Police movement has turned law enforcement on its head. When the infamous noose was found hanging in Black NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage stall at Talladega Superspeedway, it took 15 FBI agents to investigate and determine that it was just a handle. When a woman asked a Chicago cop to stop a black man who was in the act of committing a crime, the officer looked at her and said, “Do you think I want to show up on tomorrow night’s news?” He then just walked away.

We are at the point where whites have to walk on eggshells around a clique of narcissistic sociopaths. Cancel culture is mob rule, and mob rule is, at its core, the true evil.

Even people who didn’t do anything at all are subject to the mob’s wrath. An L.A. Galaxy soccer player was forced to resign because his wife tweeted that the rioters should be shot. A lawyer in San Francisco was fired because his wife was rude to a man she thought was spray-painting BLM propaganda on a building. A company called Equity Prime Mortgage fired the stepmother of the officer charged in the controversial shooting of drunk driver Rashad Brooks. The stepmother was apparently fired for no reason other than the family link.

A San Diego Gas and Electric employee lost his job for “making a white supremacist hand gesture.” This man lost his livelihood despite the fact that he wasn’t even making an OK sign. He was apparently cracking his knuckles as he drove.

I think White Fragility is one of the worst books ever written. It was written by liberal authors who follow an insane line of logic that concludes all white people are born into a culture of racism. It promotes the racist lie that this group of humans is incapable of being racist because of the color of their skin, and this group of humans is incapable of not being racist because of the color of their skin.

The book’s logic could equally conclude that the Jews were responsible for World War II, and the German people have no responsibility for the Holocaust. The only thing the book does for white people is it’s a resource for those that need more of a reason to feel bad about themselves.

I read about Aunt Jemima’s pancake mix legal battle that showed me how close we are to total racial madness. Quaker Oats’ announcement that Aunt Jemima would get a new name and logo motivated a reporter to seek out Larnell Evans Jr. He is the great-great-grandson of Anna Short Harrington, one of several actresses who played Aunt Jemima at fairs and in advertisements.

Evans and his nephew Dannez Hunter have invested a huge amount of time in trying to shake down Quaker Oats about their shared history. In September of 2014, they filed their lawsuit against PepsiCo, the corporate owner of Quaker Oats, alleging that Harrington had helped develop Aunt Jemima’s signature self-rising pancake mix, and that the company had used her likeness as its logo without providing proper compensation. They asked for a paltry $2 billion in relief and a share of sales revenue.

The two did not bother to hire a lawyer. They created a massive legal document that implied a vast plot against black people. The documents’ idiosyncrasies elicited snark from judicial authorities. “At over 50,000 words, Hunter’s complaint is longer than both The Great Gatsby and the King James Bible’s version of the Book of Genesis,” the dismissal of a subsequent filing in Minnesota reads. “The overlong complaint meanders across a vast landscape pocked by conspiracy. Portions of the complaint are written in what appears to be Chinese.”

The Quaker Oats company has long rejected their claim—arguing the character was fictitious and had never been based on a living person. This is a line Quaker Oats has stuck to since at least 1948 when they renewed the alleged Harrington trademark and added a note stating the image did not depict a living person.

The case by Evans and Hunter was dismissed on three grounds: that the statute of limitations had lapsed; that their 15 claims either weren’t recognized by law, weren’t established with evidence, or were implausible; and that the uncle and nephew lacked documentation proving their relation to Harrington or her estate. Things have become so crazy, the day may come when PepsiCo is forced to pay a vast sum of money to anyone who claims to be a descendent of Aunt Jemima.

I was very alarmed when people started bowing to show their support for the Black Lives Matter cause. We are not too far from the point of this movement turning into a religion that requires everyone to pledge their souls to the god of racial justice. Anyone who doesn’t bow before this demonic idol will get their heads chopped off.

“Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10, ESV).

Masking and Unmasking

The admission must be made up front in this commentary. As an American who has just celebrated Independence Day, I can barely contain the anger that builds within. It will be a fight with my sin nature to keep that rage contained as I write.

I recently heard one of the two presumptive presidential candidates for this year’s election say, “I will do all within my power if elected president to mandate that everyone wears a mask at all times when in public.”

Being blind, I can no longer see, of course, but if I could, my vision would no doubt have reddened with blood-pressure elevation upon hearing that declaration.

Dear people, the statement is but a tiny example of the degree of attempted controls that will be forthcoming if this candidate or a candidate they choose to take his place wins in November.

At stake is whether we will suffer implementation of governmental dictatorship the founding fathers worked so hard to assure never come to pass.

We have seen recently how issuance of executive orders is dealt with by the entrenched powers that be—the judges and their panels who are more and more exerting god-like authority. I refer your memory to the current president issuing an executive order to do away with the previous president’s executive order in the matter of the so-called dreamers—the children of illegal immigrants.

Mr. Trump wants policy that restores the right to control illegal immigration. He wants this in order to provide security within the homeland and to assure that jobs for citizens of this nation won’t be taken by those who are here illegally. Within his executive order were safeguards against inflicting undue hardships on the young, illegal residents whose parents brought them here through no fault of their own.

The judges who ruled in an unprecedented—some say unconstitutional—way on the executive order said the president can’t change the executive order of the previous president. So it’s okay for President Obama to issue the executive order allowing illegals to come and overwhelm the job market and even endanger all of us through increased criminal activity with their numbers, but it is not okay for President Trump to issue an executive order that makes sure jobs for American citizens rather than for illegals are preserved.

This is the way the entrenched DC judicial system works. They exert a quasi-judicial prerogative at best, and in my opinion, an illegitimate one.

So, if President Trump loses in November and the new president—a DC swamp creature of the first order—as he has declared, issues an executive order that we all will wear masks from now on while in public, I, at least, have no doubt, we will be wearing masks or will face fines and jail time.

That same entrenched DC agglomerate evil has shown their intention to control us at every level. In being specific, I will stay within our theme surrounding the subject of masks.

The nation has for the past four years, and even previous to that, gone through the anti-constitutional process of enduring an attempted coup d’état. One early step in that attempted coup was the unmasking of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. The intelligence community, with the almost certain knowledge and orders of President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, set General Flynn up through FBI agents. Flynn, in order to avoid his son being dragged into the illegal prosecutorial action, pleaded guilty to a lesser process crime. It was a technicality concocted and perpetrated by the so-called deep state.

The unmasking in order to pursue criminally charging the general was done through what have now been proven to be unjustified FISA warrants—i.e., warrants in order to engage in surveillance on Flynn that had no legal basis.

It is thought by General Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, and by most who truly understand the evil done to the general that this was done in order to try to get Flynn—the incoming national security advisor—to flip on the new president. That is, the frame-up was perpetrated in order to have Flynn give false information on Trump so a case for impeachment could be built. Another reason for the frame-up of Flynn, according to Ms. Powell and others, including radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, was to get rid of Flynn because he would have been in position as national security advisor to get to the bottom of the coup attempt the intelligence services were conducting. He had to go, as the saying goes.

With all that has gone on—and we have been subjected to this wickedness by the minions, both human and demonic, in high places for almost five years—is there any doubt that there are nefarious reasons behind their wanting us to wear masks? Reasons far beyond the COVID-19 matter?

Americans are being frightened into believing that a virus that nowhere near exceeds annual flu statistics in terms of numbers of deaths makes it mandatory that we follow government dictates that rob us of our civil liberties one incremental step at a time. And make no mistake, this is why the same cabal that has attempted this coup d’état wants the American public dumbed down and made to follow orders like lemmings so this nation can be brought into the globalist order they are determined to establish.

It is actually Satan, the father of lies, who is behind the machinations we are witnessing.

So, James, you are a Bible prophecy pundit, some would accuse. Why are you so into the politics of all this? Believe me, I would rather veg out and drink my coffee and “watch” WW II documentaries—which I love to do. This, and ignore what is coming upon this world at such a pace it is hard to keep track.

However, you can’t achieve obtaining transparency with blinders on—or while wearing a mask that enslaves. The Christian in these prophetic times should put down the coffee and romance movies—and even the documentaries and other entertainments—and watch, as the Lord instructed (Mark 13: 37).

Blind physically though I am, I can see that the same evil that would do anything, including breaking the law by ignoring the Constitution, thus framing a battle-honored, highly decorated soldier like General Flynn, will go along, without hesitation, with enslaving us all. The same evil operatives that brought us the coup d’état hoax are of the same ilk that would dictate that we will wear masks because of an enormously exaggerated virus. This lawless ideology will use—and is currently using, in my view—the anarchy, arson, tearing-down of America, and yes, even the so-called coronavirus pandemic, in order to establish the absolute power they crave over a formerly constitutionally protected people.

Bible prophecy is the unmasking of this evil. God, Himself, has ripped the mask from Satan’s plot—for example, in Psalm 2 and throughout chapters of Daniel and Revelation. God has given true transparency into the matters we are facing in these upcoming hours so near the end of this quickly fleeting age.

The more that is revealed through observing these times, the greater the comfort Christians can take from God’s prophetic Word.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words. (1 Thessalonians 4:16–18)
