According to the Bible, God gave each of them a means of restraining/correcting evil/sin:
The home - the rod – Proverbs 22:15;
The Church - the keys – Matthew 16:19;
The state - the sword – Romans 13:4.
Satan has been working together through the world to break down the first institution of the home and to remove the rod, effectively removing the restraints of evil and sin designed to be used during the formative years of children born into sin.
We have also seen Satan, working through the world, to oppose the church in general, rejecting the Word of God, and the church of God, undermining what she teaches and her role in society. In turn, we have seen churches across the country abandon God’s design for the church including the use of the keys (church discipline), effectively filling churches with unregenerate members free to sin without restraint.
Now, we are watching, for the first time in this country, a full attack by Satan on the third institution, and especially on its means of restraining and correcting evil in the cries and the moves to defund and abolish the police department. Make no mistake, Satan’s aim is to ensure sin rules the day, and to remove any and all obstacles to it, while encouraging men and women and children to reject God and embrace their depravity.
