In a city, Minneapolis, where the city council has voted to defund and dismantle its police department, 6 people were shot overnight and 38 others have been shot in the past two weeks. Remember, Jesus predicted that at the time of His Second Coming the earth would once again be like it was in the days of Noah (Matthew 24:37-38). Now, our Lord obviously meant that God's coming judgement of the earth by fire (2 Peter 2:3-10), just like His previous judgment of the earth by flood, would catch all the scoffers of this world off guard and unprepared. However, I also believe that our Lord—who predicted His Second Coming alone would prevent the destruction of the entire human race at the hands of great and unprecedented end-time tribulation (Matthew 24:21-22)—was insinuating that the earth, as it was in the days of Noah, would once again, at the time of His Second Coming, be "filled with violence" (Genesis 6:11, 13). Are you aware of the fact that government, which God ordained to wield the sword in order to suppress evil and violence in this fallen world (Romans 13:1-7), was not instituted by God until after the flood? It was after the flood, at the same time God instituted capital punishment, when God instituted and ordained government to punish evil doers and to protect the innocent (Genesis 9:6). Therefore, like it was in Noah's day, the last days will be days within which the earth will be filled with violence, as a result of the absence once again of government restraint on evil. Truly, the growing-call across our country to defund and dismantle the police will sheath the sword of government and turn our day into a day like unto Noah's, when the earth will once again be filled with unrestrained violence. JESUS IS COMING!
