The Rise of Lawlessness
"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 (NKJV)
The world is drowning in a rising tide of lawlessness. All over the globe, and here at home, we see wave after wave of complete and utter disregard for the laws and institutions that were set by God. The institutions of marriage, family, and nations, are being decimated. National borders are being overrun. Nations are under attack by armies of men with no national allegiance, whose intent is to cleanse the earth of infidels, and establish a global caliphate. Everywhere, these institutional walls, which were set to establish security, are being torn down.
Personal lawlessness is rampant. Personal lawlessness is sin because this lawlessness violates the laws of God. We are reminded that,
" Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness." 1 John 3:4 NJKV
Personal lawlessness or sin, is the root cause of the destruction. Personal lawlessness is destroying the God-given institutions of marriage, family, and nation. If these institutions do not stand, lawlessness will reign on a global scale. This will be the world in which the Antichrist will be revealed. He will be glorified and deified as he continues to deceive the world through lawlessness.
Just as Adam and Eve allowed lawlessness into the Garden, mankind has continued to allow lawlessness to run rampant throughout the world today.
As we watch and pray, we need to be aware of God's presence and His light, Jesus Christ. In Him is life, and the life is the light.
"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life". John 8:12 (KJV)
