HOMELESS STATE OF EMERGENCY IN SAN FRANCISCO
Supervisor David Campos declared a homeless state of emergency in San Francisco during a press conference last week. Campos said, “This failure to act has caused a public health emergency in San Francisco that has reached intolerable levels.”
San Francisco’s streets are filled with tents, the smell of feces and urine, not to mention the hypodermic needles strewn along the sidewalks.
The city’s 2015 homeless census found that more than 7,500 people were living on the streets of San Francisco, reported Breitbart.com. Among those, only 30 adults came in from out of town. A whopping 30 percent of all homeless identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queers (LGBTQ).
A homeless man slashed a highway patrol officer’s throat in January. Another homeless man reportedly stood naked from the waist down, with feces on his legs and he was cursing.
San Francisco spends $241 million a year on the homeless, but the city is still in a perpetual state of emergency because of the escalating and out of control homeless situation.
This dilemma is a perfect example of the fact that only God can deliver and heal such broken lives.
Jesus describes satan as a thief:
“The thief comes not, but to steal, kill and destroy. I (Jesus) came that they (the hopeless, downtrodden, addicted, bound by satan…) might have life and that they might have it more abundantly” John 10:10.
If people will turn from their wicked ways, repent and seek to fulfill God’s commandments, He has promised us, not only life more abundantly in this world, but eternal life hereafter!
San Francisco has been the “homosexual capitol” of the United States for a long time, and it is no surprise that there is such devastation, destruction and hopelessness there. The sin of homosexuality is described as an abomination in the sight of God (Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:21-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9).
The Word of God also tells us,
“The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” Romans 6:23.
The homeless are on a hopeless death spiral, unless they cry out to God for salvation. As we try to assist, it is imperative that we pray for them and witness to them about salvation through Jesus Christ, before it’s too late.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
