Rioting and lawlessness continues exploding in more than half a dozen U.S. cities with police and federal officers responding to the mayhem as the US presidential election nears.
In several major cities across the country there has been weeks of violent civil unrest like in Portland, Oregon, which has seen more than 50 consecutive days of lawlessness.
Where rioters broke through reinforced fencing to attack the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse as federal agents assigned to guard the building deployed tear gas and the Portland police declared the scene a riot.
In Seattle rioters threw an explosive device that created an eight-inch hole in a wall of the police department’s East District.
According to Police Chief Carmen Best, “What we saw today was not peaceful, the rioters had no regard for the public’s safety, for officers’ safety or for the businesses and property that they destroyed.”
It was also reported 21 police officers were hit by bricks, rocks and explosives, with it said police made 45 arrests near the East Precinct.
In Aurora, Colorado, a frightening moment happened on an interstate when a vehicle drove through a crowd of marchers with at least one person struck by the vehicle and taken to a hospital.
Also in the city, demonstrators pushed down fencing, threw objects at police officers, broke windows and started a fire inside the city’s courthouse.
In downtown Oakland, California, rioters smashed windows of the city’s police headquarters and set a fire inside the Alameda County courthouse, after the mob had broken through barricades set up outside.
In Austin, Texas, a car turned into a group of demonstrators at 4th Street and Congress Avenue when one of them carrying an AK-47 type rifle approached the car as other demonstrators began striking the vehicle. Gunshots were then fired from inside the vehicle striking and killing the man with the rifle.
In Richmond, Virginia, rioters set fires, broke windows, spray-painted graffiti on buildings, damaged buildings at Virginia Commonwealth University, and attacked police with rocks at Richmond Police Headquarters — while also setting on fire a city dump truck parked near police headquarters.
The increasing waves of unrest are rising as the US presidential election nears. And with the high degree of political polarization existing in the US, the tensions will remain high in the run-up to what can be a very volatile 2020 election.
The Biblical prophecies of Jesus (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretell that the Last Days will be a time of lawlessness and violence, as it was in the Days of Noah, indicating the nearing end of this age of grace.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
