Memorise: “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. ” (Matthew 24:12).
Read: Matthew 24:12-15
One of the greatest happenings of the end of the age is the multiplication of sin and iniquity. Crime rate and fleshly sins shall increase and this will turn the heart of many unto worldliness, lusts and demonic cravings. Jesus advised us concerning the happenings of this present time and the possible route to eternal freedom.
The current happenings in the nations of the world are enough warnings for every wise heart. These issues of the end time is spreading so fast and it’s because God is still very concerned about the redemption of the whole universe. You can either prepare to see the Lord or cry eternally in hell with the devil.
Don’t be deceived brethren, the modernisation of sin and iniquity is basically the devil’s method of getting more followers. You must open your heart, eyes and mind wide to avoid distractions of any kind. The state of Sodom and Gomorrah, Tyre and Sidon are too little compared to the very present state of the world. Are you not concerned? How is your faith level? Do you still believe strongly in total holiness and sanctification? Are you sure you are not copying the styles and manners of the world? Where is your heart, here or there? When they say the church has entered the world and vice versa, are they not seeing you as one of the examples? If you are heaven bound you will know.
Sin is a sinker. The more you love the world, the lesser you’ll fear the Lord. The love of this present world is enmity against God and if you are one of the enemies of God, how shall you escape?
“Behold, I have told you before.” (Matthew 24:25).
Where do you belong my brothers and sisters? “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. ” (Matthew 24:12). Are you getting hotter with God in your daily walk or you are getting closer to the devil through lust. The current signs of the end are the very reasons you should abstain from every fleshly lust that war against your soul.
“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.” (1 Peter 2:11-12).
This is the right time for true fellowship with God. Now is the chosen time to concentrate on Him for total deliverance and redemption. Choose not to be weary. Take your stand and be separated from the sins of this age. Be born again in spirit and in truth.
If you are of the world you will know and if you belong to the camp of the Lord it will show. Where do you stand?
