" ...and because iniquity shall abound, the love of many will wax cold."

 

Matthew 24:12

 

These are Christ's words concerning the end of the world. The lawless. unjust and the unfair is all around us and it takes on many, many guises. And the question is to what degree does a person who is weighted down by misfortune, continue to love? And still in our nation it's still possible to take advantage of freedoms including religion. But there are signs all around us. For instance, seeing Boston shut down within a matter of hours by the new state security police without constitutional restraint is a very frightening circumstance. Yes, I know it's to control terror but I can see it used indiscriminately. Information collected can be used in many different ways as well; for example the conservative Tea Party IRS scandal. There so much more that can be mentioned where politics and religion are being targeted. Many ignore the news and stuff their personal tragedies back into their souls. The results are heart numbing. This scripture might still be in our distant future, but it's effects are certainly being felt.

Well, as far as I see it - love is waxing cold. There's a weird type of love these days. They call it love but it's not. We are in the middle of a crisis. Family values are disappearing, politicians seem to be more dishonest than they have ever been (either that or clueless) and the World is run by evil. I think it will get worse too.

It can't last much longer. God is going to leave it until it is in such a mess that only he can sort it out. He's trying to show us that we need him.

I'm looking forward to reading 'Celebrating the Single Life' by Susan Annette Muto.

I agree with you both but I would say that at looking at all this ""mess" and "news," my heart as those who are near me is feeling the effects. The most dastardly thing is that I see scripture under attack. I'm sure all Christians want to reassure the non-believers, we love them or are taught to love them. I'm sure priest and pastors would like to marry people without constraints, or pushing anyone away. But none of us are able to change God's word. We can take the stance of the recent Pope who said about homosexual's, something like, "who am I to judge?" Please correct me if I'm wrong because it came from an article and or conversation which I can't totally rely on. At one point we will have to make a stand for Christ and the Bible, saying, "we would love to do all that your asking but we have to be true to our beliefs." *This being said with a good faith and love in our hearts.

* Added on for further clarification.

As more people in the world become less Judeo-Christian in their beliefs, of course love will wax colder and colder.  Without the love of Christ and YHWH in our lives, love cannot exist, all other "loves" are superficial, or self serving.

As we research what scripture tells us about the last days, it is clear that sin will abound.  There will be a time when many will fall away from their once held belief in Christ.  Christianity will basically become outlawed.  All we can do is depend more on God for guidance and strength, which will increase our personal faith in Him and secure our walk.  Times will be very tough and the fence sitters will not make it.

Blessings Everyone

     Just one little paragraph taken from the book"The Great Dream",about the great apostasy...................

Jesus forewarned us (Mathew 24:12)& we see it happening  before our very eyes,we must pray and for the love of Christ Jesus,love one another                                                    With love-in Christ,Kwik

 

This DECLINE IN LOVE in Christendom, has also spilled over into the unchurched world as well. All around you is EVIDENCE of this GROWING COLDNESS: Parents can't wait to get rid of their children, and children can't wait to get away from their parents. MOST marriages don't last for a lifetime, NO; they don't even last 5 years. Everyone is full of BLIND AMBITION to further their own career. EVERYTHING has come down to MONEY, and WHO HAS IT. Modern Love (so called), is just the willingness to overlook every sin, and "forgive" everybody, as long as they are NO IMMEDIATE threat to YOUR money, YOUR family, or YOUR plans. "Everybody is going to heaven", unless they personally offend or threaten YOU. MERCY, is now defined as the willingness to tolerate and justify every one of your family and friends, who is willing to make an excuse for their sin. Ye say, every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delighteth in them (Mal.2:17). The love that makes SELFLESS SACRIFICES, TAKES RISKS, and ENDURES ALL THINGS for the sake of God, Bible, and Truth; IS GONE from religious society AND YOU KNOW IT. True Heroism is only known by legend; there is no one "VALIANT FOR TRUTH" unless they can stand at the head of a cheering crowd.

WHO, I ask you, Dear Reader, REALLY shows a persistent care for your welfare who has NOTHING (in this world) TO GAIN from you? In the last 10 years, has ANY "stranger" newly entered your life as your BROTHER IN CHRIST: cared for you, prayed with you, given to you, and then left you with no one to repay but God? Of course, there has ALWAYS been "less love" than one could wish for; but I am telling you, that we are IN THAT DAY, that PARTICULAR DAY spoken of by Our Lord, when the love of many shall wax cold.

Hi everybody, even as the world's gets colder through lack of the love of God in people's hearts, our love doesn't have to disappear or get colder along with the world's. God is still bringing more souls out of worldliness to Himself, like He did with us. So let's be loving Christians through our daily lives with the people we encounter. Speaking of that I love each of you and hope you are all well, and I am glad that God led those who created this forum to create it, and then led us all to it.

 

John 15:9-17

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father's commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. "This is my commandment that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, He may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another.

 

Romans 8:37-39

No, in all these things we are more than conquerers through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

1John 3:1

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.

Prophecy cannot be broken.

 

Kids shooting schools.

God taken out of schools

Homosexual running rampant

As it was in the days of Lot...

Pornography easily accessible

Moral depravity everywhere

Winds of Doctrine

That even the elect could almost fall for the strong persuasions

 

Used to raise a thumb and bum a ride without harm

Now, its' too dangerous to raise a thumb

 

Great grandfather used to leave the door open

Grandmother used to leave the door closed

Father used to leave the door closed and locked

I have multiple locks and alarm (and many more carnal minded have guns)

 

Used to give to whomever aksed

Now, I've seen them making more $$$ than me, and it's harder for me to give.

 

Of course there is a lack of love.  There is always a lack of love ... when there is an increase in SIN!
