Matthew 24:12 Because iniquity will abound, the love of many will grow cold.
THIS MESSAGE TODAY IS NOT A FEEL GOOD, ITCHY EAR, SCARE TACTIC MESSAGE! NO, IT IS A MANDATE FROM GOD IN HEAVEN TO MAN ON EARTH! GOD WANTS TO SAVE YOUR LIFE!
As Jesus one day sat on the mount of olives He described for His disciples the signs that will precede His second coming. He said those days would be described as “perilous”. A time in which the love of many will be waxed cold and because of it persecution and wickedness would become the norm and run rampant. Are we there yet?
The sadness in having a “wax cold heart” is the heart wrenching fact that it is also prevalent among those who confess Christ.
TIME OUT FOR STRADDLING THE FENCE!
Jesus is not saying that these signs are when the end will be, but He is saying that these signs are warning that the end is near and that we need to do a heart and soul checkup very quick.
When will Christ return? No man knows the day nor the hour, only the Father in heaven knows that. Matthew 24:36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.
Today is the day to get our house in order. The day to make honoring, reverencing, praising, worshiping and living for God a priority in our lives.
Yes, it is time to change the course in how we have and are living if we have been living our lives without God being the center of it all. If Christ is not seated on the throne of your heart it’s time to make a change and do it in a hurry.
No man knows what tomorrow holds for it is NOT promise to NONE of us so we can only hope for it. Life is fleeting and we do not know the number of our days so we must live ieach day with eternity in view.
James 4:14 - whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.
The good news to the people of God on today, those who have placed their faith, trust and hope in God alone through a personal relationship with Christ Jesus, those who have allowed the love of God to rule and reign in their hearts are the ones who have a future hope of eternity with God in heaven. Let’s listen to vs#13 of this text which states “But if you keep on being faithful right to the end, you will be saved.
When we have committed our way to the Lord our God in unwavering faith in spite of persecution and all the evil and evildoers we are daily surrounded by, God PROMISE to His people is that one day we will spend eternity with Him in heaven for in our faithful obedience to Him He is saving us daily as He strengthens us for that GREAT GETTING UP MORNING IN HEAVEN WITH HIM.
The end lot for the ungodly who willfully do evil and rejects Christ and His Gospel is found in Matthew 25:6 And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
Every day of our lives we MUST be making preparations to one day meet Christ for we know not when, where or how, but we do know that one day He is coming back because He told us so in His Word.
When I was growing up there was a song the saints of old used to sing a song that says “GET RIGHT WITH GOD AND DO IT NOW”!
If you do not know Jesus for the pardon of your sins I leave with you these scripture that are found in Romans 10:9-10 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
The bible says this in Romans 10:14:How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?
To you whose heart has waxed cold, God has presented you with the opportunity for salvation today for He has spoken to you on today through His Preacher (Debra), the one whom He has assigned to deliver His Word to you today via this website for all who would only BELIEVE and come to Him in faith.
To all those who visit here on today that do not know Jesus for the pardon of your sins, you are without excuse after reading this blog today for God has open the door and gave you a way of escape from eternal separation from Him to a personal relationship with Him through the hearing and believing of His Word.
Yes, the choice to believe in God through Christ Jesus has been sent forth from heaven to you on today and the response is up to you. God has already done what He is going to do in presenting you the opportunity to hear and receive the Gospel and to move today from a heart of stone to a heart of flesh.
I leave with you (those whose hearts that have grown cold) these words from the Lord to you that is found in Hebrews 3:15 As it is said, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”
Jesus Christ, the son of the Living God has died and paid for the sins of humanity once and for ALL. There will not be a second cross experience but there will be a second coming called the “Day of Judgment” and I can only hope and pray that you will be found in Christ and He in you.
The hearts of many have grown wax cold and many are still operating without conviction in continual evildoing and deceitfulness in these perilous days in which we live. I can only hope and pray that it is not among you who confess Christ as Lord and Savior for you will suffer a greater wrath.
This is what the Lord spoke to Ezekiel and every Preacher He has called to proclaim His Gospel in Ezekiel 33:8-When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you will certainly die,’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man will die because of his sin; but I will require his blood from your hand.
I have done what the Lord commanded of me concerning ALL of you on today, therefore, your blood stains WILL NOT be on my hands.
God’s Servant Debra
