As we watched the number of massacres increase in frequency during 2012, the USA has already experienced a massacre in 2013 in Aurora, CO, which is the same city the movie theater massacre occurred last year.
Looking at the state of the USA from a spiritual perspective, it is easy to predict that there will be even more massacres this year.
Reason #1: Result of Oppression
Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon: Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant.
-- Isaiah 30:12-13 (KJV)
In these two verses, the spiritual principle extracted from the text is the fact that whenever a nation chooses to continually oppress the people from within, then conflicts will impact communities suddenly and instantly.
No wonder massacres have spilled out into affluent neighborhoods throughout America when this country has stood on the idea that oppression Black people is necessary. Let's look at the American history timeline of the oppression of the Black race. First, there was slavery. After the Civil War, there was sharecropping which kept Blacks financially oppressed. Finally, drug infestation has oppressed Black communities for the past four decades. However, the callousness of others allows for this oppression to go on.
Notice that there are Black youth dying all over the USA on a daily basis due to urban violence. Yet, the nation does not pause to reflect upon what can be done to limit the amount of guns in urban areas. However, when a massacre happens, gun control becomes the top priority. Nevertheless, the spiritual principle states that the oppression must first cease before massacres can be prevented. Since basically nothing is being done to curb violence in Black communities, the massacres will increase in frequency as a result. That's just the spiritual law of sowing and reaping. Sow violence in poor neighborhoods and the reaping is violence in affluent neighborhoods.
Reason #2: The Boomerang Curse
In the case of sowing and reaping, the reaping is multiplied at a higher degree. In instances of drug and gang violence in oppressed communities, either one or two are killed at a time. In massacres, multiple amounts of people are killed instantly. This spiritual phenomenon is something that I call the boomerang curse. Whatever you send out somewhere else will eventually come back to hit you in the head. Here is spiritual proof of how the boomerang curse works.
"Let them be confounded that persecute me: but let not me be confounded: let them be dismayed, but let me not be dismayed: bring upon them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction."
-- Jeremiah 17:18 (KJV)
In this verse, it states that whoever looks to oppress others will receive twice the destruction in return. This destruction has an effect of gradually multiplying if the root cause of oppression is not thwarted. Therefore, reason #2 will occur because of reason #1.
