Heart Growing Cold?
- Now Think On This
by Steve Martin
“At that time many will be trapped into betraying and hating each other, many false prophets will appear and fool many people; and many people’s love will grow cold because of increased distance from Torah. But whoever holds out till the end will be delivered. And this Good News about the Kingdom will be announced throughout the whole world as a witness to all the Goyim. It is then that the end will come.” (Matt 24:10-14 Complete Jewish Bible)
Murderous evil has become rampant – beheadings, burnings, torture, rape and killings. So much martyrdom is occurring daily in several nations, as the evil one pours out his wrath on the believers of Jesus (Yeshua) and those of the Chosen Ones. Captured as prisoners, tortured for their faith in the only True God; refusing to bow down to the false god – our brothers and sisters are being slaughtered for standing for truth.
As some would watch this daily news, is it possible that hearts are growing cold, replacing the fire that once burned within, and turning their love away? Is it possible that many people’s love would indeed grow cold, as Jesus prophesied 2000 years ago, and not hold onto the end? Yes it is.
Turning away from the truth, out of growing fear, promises that seem to have been forgotten, or just plain lack of anymore concern and compassion are sweeping across the nations in the hearts of those who once called themselves Christians. Leaving churches, quitting daily reading of the Word and dismissing the need to maintain a prayer life are causing once strong believers to betray, abandon and even hate the ones they had walked with in harmony in years gone by. Is this another sign of the end? Yes it is.
As the heat has been turned up, the frog in the slowly increased temperature of the water has become unaware of his true surroundings. As such, an ongoing lack of discernment and a displaced knowledge of foundational truths have left many behind, when the time to stand strong is needed all the more, at the most vital time in all history.
“…and many people’s love will grow cold because of increased distance from Torah.” (Matt. 24:12 CJB). As pastors, rabbis and spiritual leaders increasingly exchange the eternal truth found in the Scriptures for the lies of the current age, standards have fallen to their lowest levels. Nothing remains black and white, as replacement theology and the belief that anything and everything is OK has blinded the eyes that once had seen the light.
Biblical marriage (one man and one woman), love for our unborn children, a firm grasp of solid commitment to the Lord’s principles, and maintaining a strong support for Israel and the Jewish right to the Promised Land – these have all fallen by the wayside as the deceptive spiritual cloud slowly blankets the people. Many false prophets have appeared and fooled the people – even beginning in the church, as liberal, unholy doctrines and Chrislam, among other lies, have taken root.
“But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.” (Matt. 24:13-14 NASU)
We who know the Truth, who have called upon the Name of the Lord Jesus, Yeshua HaMashiach, must endure to the end. By the grace available to us through His blood and Resurrected Life, we can be among those who do stand until the end, proclaiming the truth of the Good News and bringing a testimony to all the nations. As the dark gets darker, surely the light will shine brighter in these days that we live in.
We must not let our hearts grow cold. These times are not for the faint of heart, but for the warriors who have been given life to share His love in the dying world.
