The world is getting out of hand, more drugs, more theft and robbery, more anti-social behaviour, more rape, more disobedience and lack of respect for property, life and the law. This is despite what people will tell you. When I was young reports of murder were few but these days there is hardly a week goes by without hearing of murder or manslaughter somewhere in the land. Life it seems is cheap to some people. In and around the town I grew up in, Liverpool, there has been an ever-increasing number of gun crimes in recent years mostly members of rival gangs shooting one another. Sadly sometimes innocent bystanders get in the line of fire as was the case a few years ago when a young boy was shot dead accidentally as he rode his bicycle in a pub car park and got into the line-of-fire. A short while ago there was a report of someone walking into a pub, singling out an individual and then shooting him and then shooting him once more whilst he was on the floor just to be sure he was dead. He then walked calmly out of the pub and into the night. People who carry out such evil seemingly have no conscience at all. Can anyone really be that callous? What is it that drives people to do such things? We can blame their up-bringing, their poor social standing, their parents and many other things but in the end it is down to the individual. Or is it? Even since writing this a few days ago there have been reports of more guns being fired in anger. Remember a post I placed soon after Christmas? How long will the good will to all men last? I am not surprised at all this for it says……………
1 But mark this: there will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
Evil resides in the heart of those who who turn away from God.
It will get far worse before it ever gets better. This is prophecy. Expect it.
