Lawlessness Will Abound

US-POLITICS-RACISM-STATUE-UNREST

Where the police stand down, lawlessness will abound. We see this across our nation. The very first window broken should lead to an arrest. Once it is allowed without consequence it multiplies into lawless riots.

Surprisingly, the word lawlessness does not appear in the KJV. Instead, iniquity is used. Lawlessness is clearer to the 21st Century reader. The word occurs eleven times in the NKJV. We are now in such a period of history in America. Law and order must be restored. Meditate on these verses:

“And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!‘” Matthew 7:23

“The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, Matthew 13:41

“Even so you also outwardly appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness. Matthew 23:28

“And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12

“I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.” Romans 6:19

“Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14

“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.” 2 Thessalonians 2:7

“You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.” Hebrews 1:9

“Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. 1 John 3:4

Is there any doubt we are seeing this in our culture today? Isn’t is ironic that these lawless protests are about “slavery?” We must pray for our leaders to have the courage to stand up to the lawless acts or it will get worse and worse. It is not easy to pray for evil leaders. We must pray while not dishonoring their God-given placement in leadership. Paul, the Apostle, spoke accidentally against the high priest and repented, even though Paul had spoken the truth. Remember that the battle is not against flesh and blood, but spiritual wickedness.

Then Paul said, “I did not know, brethren, that he was the high priest; for it is written, ‘You shall not speak evil of a ruler of your people.’ ” Acts 23:5

“You shall not revile God, nor curse a ruler of your people.” Exodus 22:28

It may be tricky to thread the needle of praying with the right Spirit and attitude, but we must rise up and pray! We know the end of the book. We win! So, don’t lose heart. Yehovah has the final say!

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and thank God for Israel showers this week.

Very good Les. You make a case for the modern biblical translations. interesting how a 400 year old translation can cloak the truth.
Yehovah has a way of making it difficult on all but the most determined kings. Your glory and honor has shone through in this article.
Proverbs 25:2.
