Increasing Lawlessness a Major Sign of the Times!

Commentary By:  Gordon King

Day by day we see an increase in ungodliness and unholiness, and with each passing day we see more and more people acting without self-control, unable to maintain a civil composure, unable to control their emotions, acting out aggressively on whatever thoughts come to mind! 

One example of this is what happened in Hong Kong this last week:

Who are the men in white behind Hong Kong’s mob attack?

This is what happens to a society that has pushed God aside, to a people that say they can do it all better than God can, and God shall give them over to a debased mind!

Romans 1:28-32

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

People are becoming more and more brutal, despising what is good, becoming less loving and forgiving, unmerciful and haters of God as the days progress.  They are being filled with all unrighteousness, choosing to worship the creature rather than the Creator!

Romans 1:25

who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Yes, man has chosen to worship and serve the creation rather than God!  We see this throughout our society, for example people worshiping nature, putting the environment before all things, bowing down to the creation instead of the Creator!  They have made nature their god, many people bow down and worship “Mother Nature” and put “Global Warming” at the forefront of all things including God.  And this my friends is just one ploy of the devil to bring the world together under one government, and ultimately to a one world ruler, the Antichrist!

The world is becoming more evil and wicked as the days go by my friends and lawlessness abounds!

Matthew 24:12

And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

This is a major sign of the return of Christ, the increase in lawlessness throughout the world!  People have become brutal, despisers of good, without self-control, haughty, headstrong, lovers of money, unforgiving, unloving, ungodly, having a form of godliness but denying it’s power!  Everyday we hear of more people being massacred, of people being murdered, raped, tortured, persecuted, falsely imprisoned, hated, of families being torn apart, of family units being restructured into something other than godly!  We even hear more and more of government officials performing ungodly acts and deeds, of being lawless in their actions.

2 Timothy 3:1-5

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

Are we now living in perilous times?  Have the scales of unrighteousness in the world tipped in it’s favor?  I believe that it has my friends, I believe that we have passed the proverbial point of no return!

The majority of minds in the world have turned to despisers of God, to being unholy and unrighteous.  They have and are accepting what is ungodly and unholy as the truth, as the standards for society, even though God tells them that they are wrong!  Yet this is the current trend in the world, calling everything that is unholy and unrighteous to God righteous and good, while at the same time calling what God tells us is good and righteous evil!

Isaiah 5:20 rings a bell!

Isaiah 5:20

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

There is soon coming a time when God will judge the world, a time when God shall pour out His wrath upon the wicked!  God does not want us to be ignorant of the times, nor does He want us to be ignorant of the seasons or what is soon coming upon the face of the earth!  Therefore He has given us enough information to be able to know these things, to be watching and to be ready!

We are very, very close to the point of all these things converging, all of the signs of the last days, the signs for the return of Jesus Christ!  And if we are that close to the return of Christ then we are even closer to the rapture of the church which could happen at any time my friends!

The second coming of Christ and the rapture of the church are two separate events my friends, they are not one and the same.  There is nothing that needs to happen for the rapture to take place, it could happen at any time, it is imminent!  On the other hand, there are many, many prophecies which must take place before Christ’s return, such as the revealing of the Antichrist, the Mark of the Beast, the abomination of desolation, among other things, as well as God’s wrath being poured out upon the world!

Be watching for the signs of Christ’s return and know that we are in the season!

God bless!  Maranatha!

  1. The spirit of antichrists are rising around the globe. We are living in this last generation. I look around at the public places such as my neighborhoods, gym, library, grocery stores, etc, I have to be very careful what to say, like walking an eggshell.

    Today at public schools are way crazier than our days of high school. I graduated in 1987. Don’t get me wrong, I noticed today kids and young adults, they are not very smart. My friends told me that they are struggling with their children and more dramas. They told me that I’m lucky I don’t have kid. They love their children but they are bringing more troubles. I thought that was interesting. My step father told me another day, he said that I’m glad I don’t born this generation. He is 73 years old. He missed of his old days. I totally understand him.

    Today family value are weak. Back then during my high school were good, but back in old days, 1940’s thru 1970’s were good. Today kids will thinking the Mark of the Beast are cool. Having chips on their hands or forehead would be neat. SAD!!!!!!

  2. Thanks for your comment Jim!

    Everything is changing quickly, the past several decades have fallen into a moral decline, step by step, until we end up with a generation which doesn’t know any different! Immorality becomes the norm, the degradation of society is just a part of life, the dumbing down of a generation is business as usual. Family values have been turned upside down and torn apart, if you say that a traditional family with one man and one woman is the way God intended for it to be then you are called intolerant and a hater!

    You are right about the Mark of the Beast, this generation is the “technology generation”. They have been born with I-phones in their hands, in front of the computer screens, being able to buy, sell, and trade anywhere, at any time, using many forms of technology. They have been raised where everything is instantaneous, where they don’t have to wait for anything anymore, it’s instant gratification. This generation will be accepting of the Mark of the Beast for two different reasons, first because they are raised from birth to be accepting of all different forms of technology, but second they will fear even the thought of loosing the ability to have everything at their finger tips, and the Mark will actually entice them because of the technology itself, just like you said they will think that it’s cool! Modern technology for many people today is like a security blanket, they just wouldn’t know what to do without it.

    God bless! Maranatha!
