30 Days of Birth Pangs - Day 6 Commotions

Luke 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.

Commotions - it reminds me of my Dad breaking up a fight between my sister and I. "What kind of commotion is going on over here?"  The Greek work is Akatastasia and is used only 5 times and means instability, a state of disorder, disturbance, confusion.  Sounds like every country and city in the world right now, doesn't it?

Greek Protests
Greece - a country in absolute disarray.  Looming economic collapse, runs on banks, runs on food:  the whole house of cards is going to come tumbling down.  Italy, Ireland, and Spain will follow shortly thereafter.

Baltimore, Oakland, Ferguson - Commotion everywhere.

Africa - South Sudan, the world's youngest country, has about a year of stability after 23 years of civil war - fighting broke out 19 months ago and shows no signs of stabilizing.  Nigeria - terror from Boko Haram.  Fighting in CAR, DRC, Kenya.  Political upheaval in Burkina Faso, Mali, and else where.

Syria, Iraq, Libya, Egypt, Yemen - all flowing with the blood of martyrs and deposed dictators.

Ukraine and Russia - peace talks and cease fires have collapsed and dozens of soldiers and civilians have been killed in the last two weeks (read more).

Global Conflicts August 19, 2015 (source)
In Mexico we have political and criminal unrest as a corrupt government fights with the drug cartels.  Venezuela has disintegrated under Chavez with the currency being so devalued it is being used as napkins (source).

Thus, our Day 6 Birth Pangs are well documented, commotions...
