Lawlessness in America

We found out today that the rule of law is dead in America:

Comey Delivers Scathing Rebuke of Hillary But Says No Indictment 

"They" can do whatever they want and nobody goes to jail.  Instead of going to jail Hillary gets to be president of the United States instead, what a deal!  No, there is no guarantee that she will win but the fact that there is no indictment tells you the corruption in government is now absolute.   This is lawlessness in its purest form.  So what you ask?  So we are judging the season we are living in.  We live in a season of absolute lawlessness.  So what you ask again?  So, the 'lawless one' could not rise in a time of law and order, the people would not accept him.  Now however, the doors are all standing wide open for his arrival:

2 Thess 2:8  And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.

 Could the Restrainer restrain this lawlessness?  Sure, Hillary could lose but even if she does what has been established is the system of lawlessness that exists and the people's tolerance and even acceptance of this lawlessness has reached a crescendo.

This is what happens when the God of peace, law, and order is rejected.  In comes lawlessness and chaos.  Our God told us this would happen 2,000 or so years ago.  It is happening but we did not choose this.  We who believe did not reject the Lord Jesus Christ or the Father.  We accept Him and we obey Him.  Those who believe those who accept Jesus Christ and obey His commands will be lumped in with the wicked when all hell breaks loose upon them do not know or understand the scriptures.  Proof?  Yes, the same proof given over and over again:  Noah and Lot.

Luke 17: 26Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot—they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building, 29but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all— 30so will it be on the day when the Son of Man is revealed.

 Our Lord speaks of Noah and "They."  Also He speaks of Lot and "They."  What happened to Noah and Lot and what happened to "them?"

 Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all

Lot went out from Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all

Clearly a massive dividing line between Noah, Lot and "them."

And as if the Lord presupposed the opposition to this message He gave it to us again very clearly in the New Testament here:

2 Peter 2:4For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hella and committed them to chainsb of gloomy darkness to be kept until the judgment; 5if he did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a herald of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6if by turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes he condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;c 7and if he rescued righteous Lot, greatly distressed by the sensual conduct of the wicked 8(for as that righteous man lived among them day after day, he was tormenting his righteous soul over their lawless deeds that he saw and heard); 9then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials,d and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment, 10and especially those who indulgee in the lust of defiling passion and despise authority.

Its right there plain as day and yet many refuse to accept this very straightforward promise the Lord has given us.  Have gave us Noah and Lot as examples to tell us He knows how to rescue the godly from trials.  That Word trials is this:

from temptation,

πειρασμοῦpeirasmou3986an experiment, a trial, temptationfrom peirazó

Which is the same exact Word used here:

Rev 3:10Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth.

of testing,

πειρασμοῦpeirasmou3986an experiment, a trial, temptationfrom peirazó

I don't know how much clearer the Lord could have said it.  Noah and Lot, both delivered and the wicked around them were destroyed.  That is straight from the Word of the Lord with no added commentary needed, 1-2-3 done, the Word speaks for itself.

The righteous are watching the lawless get away with fraud theft murder lies and everything else and like Lot they are vexed.  Just like Noah and Lot were in days past the righteous WILL BE delivered again.  That is a divine PROMISE not some man's opinion.

As you see the lawlessness of this world grow around you know that it is setting the stage for the appearance of the lawless one.  The righteous who are currently vexed by this lawless behavior just as Lot was, will be delivered just like Lot and just like Noah.  That is a fact.  That is a promise.  Our God cannot and will not lie.  He said it,  He meant it.  That settles it.

I hope and pray that the Lord's Words to us will encourage you as it has encouraged me.

grace and peace
