Who's Fault Was The Massacre In Uvalde, Texas?

Minister Ty Alexander
(Ty Huynh)
When the Uvalde, Texas school shooting happened last week, I knew I would need to speak about it because people continue to wonder why God would let children be murdered, and they incorrectly focus on gun control as the best way to deal with shootings like this.

Ten days before that shooting was another broadly covered mass shooting in Buffalo, New York, and just yesterday, another mass shooting happened at a hospital in Tulsa, Oklahoma[1.1]. The gunmen in all three of these shootings used AR-15 style assault rifles and two of them were only 18 years old.

The nation is right to be angry about these incidents, and many people want to raise age limits and enact restrictions for assault rifles and other military style firearms, including President Biden as he said in his national address last night. But are these legal restrictions going to prevent further mass shootings or other gun violence?

There’s more to these issues that the Lord wants me to speak about, as I saw that the Uvalde shooting happened only 3 days before the NRA (National Rifle Association) held its annual meeting in Houston, Texas, and just yesterday, I found the Uvalde shooting was the 213th mass shooting in the United States this year. 213 is not only a high number for only 5 months, but the Lord also gave more meaning to the number 213 years ago (see 213 in The Meaning of Numbers for details).

It relates to the very end of our age, which we are living in now, just before the return of Christ. But moreover, the Lord has guided me to speak much in recent months of Biblical prophecy unfolding now and that God’s judgments are coming upon the whole world, including the church and believing communities (see God’s Alarm for more).

In those proclamations, I stated many times that because of His People’s sin, God will forget the children (Hosea 4:6), and so in recent months, especially, we have seen much tragedy happening to children and families, like in Ukraine and now with recent shootings. But these are not recent trends. They started long before this year and before the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the more recent tribulations, like the pandemic, much increased violence and crime since then, and other more frequent and severe natural disasters, are God’s exclamation points or more serious alarm calls to make the world, and especially His People, take heed.

These tribulations fulfill Old Testament prophecy about the Day of the Lord being dark and not light and full of terror, pit, and snare (Amos 5:18-20; Isaiah 24:17-18). So the 213 link with the Uvalde shooting also has to do with the end times, The Day of the Lord, and how they bring the Lord’s judgment on communities who have let sin overrun their lives.

How can so many grade school children be killed when schools, law enforcement, and communities have been preparing to prevent and mitigate school shootings for many years now? It’s because they’ve lost the protections and blessings from the Lord because of unaddressed sin. That not only removed blessing and protection from God, but it brought the opposite – judgment from God – which is what we are also seeing in Ukraine and why you saw the Uvalde shooter did not get much resistance from law enforcement for so long. He killed nearly two entire classrooms and was in the school for about an hour.

Instead of superficial remedies, nations and communities should be focusing on fixing their darkness and sins. They are focusing on fixing the wrong things, like increasing security and trying to restrict gun ownership.

It’s true more restrictions for firearms can prevent crime and death, like when there was a ban on assault weapons decades before. This is a point why the Uvalde shooting and NRA meeting were closely timed. The Lord is trying to point out that gun advocates are too blinded by freedom and greed to enact sensible restrictions, such as raising the age limit to buy assault weapons and having universal background checks for all firearms.

However, restricting firearms is not the biggest issue and gun access is not the root of the problem. There was also a large increase in violent crime since the pandemic started in 2020[1.3], many of which are not gun related. This was why 213 and sin was brought up.

What is turning people, some very young, into violent criminals and killers? Can you make righteous judgment?

It is not the guns. It is the fault of society, families, teachers, and leaders that allow so much sin to saturate their lives that they do not prevent children, like these recent 18-year-old shooters, from becoming so isolated and hopeless, or so isolated and deceived by lies, that they turn into hateful, remorseless, lost souls.

The 18-year-old Uvalde shooter was isolated and bullied in his small community[1.2]. The Buffalo shooter was a young white supremist full of hate. But the Tulsa shooter was a much older black man. What do these people have in common with each other and all violent criminals?

Sin from the community and themselves had so saturated them in the years leading up to their crimes, that they were desensitized to what is wrong and they lost their sense of morality. And because they did not have sufficient Godly moral support or love, the forces of evil that try to derail us all got complete control over them.

It is their communities and families that have failed to uphold what is right, which in turn allows children to grow up without correct morals, so that their own sins further compound the sin and darkness their communities have allowed to remain. I speak of believing communities in the same light as all others. What I’ve seen happening in communities and congregations professing to be People of God is absolutely shameful. Too shameful to repeat here.

What are your spiritual and community leaders doing to address what is in front of them? Let it not be like the bishops in the Twin Cities here urging more security in schools, but instead may you and your leaders make wise and righteous judgment.

Remove sin and darkness from your midst, do not tolerate bullying, sexual harassment, or any indecent behavior, and instead of isolating individuals who are having trouble, give them empathy, encouragement, and love, so you’re not cultivating another generation of immoral, lost souls, or condemning your own communities in the times ahead.

Wisdom, discernment, and strength to combat the challenges in your communities be on you all, through Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus). Amen.

Update - God's links with Uvalde and Highland Park Shootings 7/6/2022
In the original Uvalde mass shooting post, I noted that God marked it with the number 213 for a reason. Now, just a couple days ago on July 4th, America’s Independence Day, I also noted the Lord marked the mass shooting in Highland Park, Illinois...

Update - God gives more proof of His judgment 7/17/2022
Last week, I noticed news reports stated the Uvalde shooter was in the school for 77 minutes before law enforcement confronted him[3.1, 3.2]. After video was made public that showed the police waiting in the hallways for over an hour while the shooter was still firing, many expressed outrage at the lax and cowardly response.

This made most people blame the police for all the deaths, which included 19 young children. That kind of response to obvious threats truly highlights the problems in society that I've been pointing out - insufficient and lax response to sin in our communities is the main cause of so much more violence and crime being perpetrated.

But if you read the previous posts here, you also know that it was God’s judgment that is another cause for this and many other tragedies. It was God’s will the police did not take down the shooter until 77 minutes passed, as 77 is two sevens, and seven is a significant number that goes with God to mean completeness and divinity.

Earlier this year, I pointed out sevens in a tornado disaster to say it was God’s judgment, and in the last update I brought up Jonathan Cahn’s book about 9/11, which also showed that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were God’s judgment. Now, the Lord is highlighting sevens again with Uvalde, so I will also bring up that Jonathan’s book after The Harbinger brought up much more evidence about the shemitah, or seventh sabbatical year, that links it and the number seven to God’s judgments on the world and especially the United States.

In that book, The Mystery Of The Shemitah, Chapter 15, “The Mystery Of Sevens,”[3.3] is full of references to the number seven that miraculously link to the 9/11 terrorist attacks, such as 9/11 happened seven days before the stock market crashed, the market lost 7% of its value in that crash, 777 stock market points were lost in the last day of the seventh (shemitah) year, and when periods of hours and minutes were tracked, Jonathan found that the 9/11 airplane strikes happened within the seventh hour and a cycle of seven minutes.

These sevens show obvious links to God’s judgment, just as I have been showing with other numeric guidance through the years. So despite the insufficient response from law enforcement in the Uvalde shooting, people still need to see the real reasons why their communities are suffering major tragedies. God is saying, Look at yourselves before making accusations and change your ways to come out of sin. That is how you will come to know the better parts of seven – God’s blessings and divine protection.

Update - God gives more proof of the Day of the Lord 6/9/2023
I recently noticed a news article citing gun violence trends are at all time highs and now amount to 1 person being killed every 11 minutes, and more than half of those deaths are suicides[4.1]. I noted the 1 every 11 minutes was a 111 number link that goes with the numeric links God already gave...
