Mayor Jenny Durkan, “The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone #CHAZ is not a lawless wasteland of anarchist insurrection – it is a peaceful expression of our community’s collective grief and their desire to build a better world”
 
 
“The world must regard with profound astonishment the spectacle of national lawlessness which the [United] States…now exhibit.
 
They are now swept by a storm of rebellion such as has never been seen before. They are actuated by a spirit of resistance to law, by contempt for order, and by defiant rebellion against the entire structure which we call the United States government.”
 
Philadelphia & United Sates Gazette | February 4, 1861
 

 
“The answer is that lawlessness has little to do with civil or national law. This is because lawlessness is not the action of violating the established laws of a nation; lawlessness runs much deeper and is by nature spiritual.”
Phil Hotsenpiller, “One Nation without Law”
 
THE ORIGIN OF LAW 
 
James 4:12 “There is only one Lawgiver and Judge…”
Isaiah 33:22 “For the Lord is our judge, The Lord is our lawgiver, The Lord is our king; He will save us.”
Isaiah 51:4 “Pay attention to Me, O My people, And give ear to Me, O My nation; For a law will go forth from Me, And I will set My justice for a light of the peoples.”
 
“Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, “From the most ancient times justice has been a two-part concept: virtue triumphs, and vice is punished.” 
 
Understanding the present and future is critical if we are to survive. Solzhenitsyn also reminds us of an old proverb: “Dwell on the past and you’ll lose an eye. Forget the past and you’ll lose both eyes.” Phil Hotsenpiller, “One Nation without Law” 
 
“Have we reached the ultimate stage of absurdity where some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, while other people are not held responsible for what they themselves are doing today?” Thomas Sowell
 
THE COMING LAWLESS ONE
2 Thessalonians 2:7-8 “ For the Mystery Of Lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way. And then The Lawless One will be revealed…”

“The nations are now ready to give the kingdoms of the world to any one man who will offer us a solution to our world’s problems.” Arnold Toynbee
 
 
THE BATTLE IS SPIRITUAL 
2 Corinthians 2:11 “Lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.”
 
The strategy of the enemy
·      Isolate us from the power and presence of God
·      Distract us with “doomsurfing”
·      Polarize us with Fear 
 
Remember:
·      Your future is in God’s Hands
·      You carry the Presence of God 
·      You are protected by His Spirit and Holy Angels
