TW: London Riots


Today’s TW News & Prophecy from the Living Church of God has the following:

London riots spread.

This week’s London riots have spread menacingly across the nation to Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool. Youthful rioters burned vehicles and buildings and looted shops and businesses. More than 100 police were injured and more than 1,000 youths were arrested–some as young as age 11!

While some attribute the riots to race and class issues, sociologists say the youthful rioters are “unoccupied–and therefore more likely to loiter on the streets and in shopping centers, and to get wrapped up in the madness of rebellion” (Time, August 10, 2011; Telegraph, August 9, 2011). Although many youths may have “nothing to do,” the question remains, “Where are the parents in all of this?” Young people today are not being taught to respect people or property and they are not properly supervised. As a result, many people lost their homes, autos and businesses to the destructive mobs.

Isaiah prophesied of the end of the age, “As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people! Those who lead you cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths” (Isaiah 3:12). Society today is reaping the results of children left to raise themselves and parents who are often absent. God speed the day when the hearts of fathers are turned to their children and the hearts of children are turned to their fathers (Malachi 4:6)!

Four of the most notorious faces of the riots were behind bars last night in a victory for the law-abiding majority. Detectives suspect they are responsible for violent and brazen crimes that shocked the nation during four days of mayhem.

UK Voters Oppose Cuts To Police Budget In Wake Of Riots

‎Wall Street Journal – Paul Hannon – 12 August 2011

LONDON (Dow Jones)–Most Britons oppose cuts to the police budget in the wake of widespread rioting and looting, and believe Prime Minister David Cameron failed to act quickly enough to control the disorder, according to an opinion poll published Friday.

“Troubles” were predicted by Jesus (Mark 13:8). The Bible also warns that lawlessness would abound (Matthew 24:12)–and this is happening in direct and public ways.  While more police may have helped, it is not the lack of police that cause riots.  Criminal riots are caused by lawlessness.  More riots for the UK (and USA) are expected in the future, before the start of the Great Tribulation.

Many involved in the London riots seem to be engaged in class warfare.  Class warfare is something that I have seen many in Washington D.C. fan the flames for.  Unlike the riots in the UK this week, I am anticipating much more massive riots and civil unrest in the USA’s future.  Think about it, what will happen when the USA cannot provide food for the vast amount of its citizens that are already on food stamps and other government social welfare programs?

The time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7) is getting closer, and other troubles (Mark 13:8) will happen for a few years before it gets really bad.  And then it will be even worse for the people in the Great Tribulation (Mark 13:19, Matthew 24:21).  National repentance seems close to impossible, even though turning to God is the only answer to change the path that the Anglo-nations are on.

God will eventually intervene (Jeremiah 30:8; Matthew 24:22), but not until it gets worse than most people have imagined (Matthew 24:21-22).  The riots in the UK this week are barely a taste of what is to come.
