Matthew 24:12 - And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
In chapter 24 of Matthew, Jesus gives a prophecy concerning the future to his disciples.
This entire chapter is full of "WARNINGS" of what's to come in the future.
In other words, the signs of the end times. The end is not yet, but the beginning of great sorrow throughout the universe has begun.
Because of sin, the hearts of man has "waxed cold"! "Waxed cold" is another word for a stony heart. A hardened heart.
Why is the heart of man compared to a stone at all? Because, like a stone it is cold and hard. The bible calls it "waxed"! When our hearts are cold, it affects our hearing and our doing.
The Gospel does not make any sense to one whose heart has been harden towards it. 1 Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom. A fool says in his heart that there is no God!
Oh how prevalent has the hearts of many grown "waxed cold" in our world today, concerning God's truth.
If you are here on this site reading this blog and know that your heart has been harden concerning the things of God, you are not here by chance. God is speaking directly to you!
On today, I urge you, I beg you, I plea with you to surrender to Jesus. Ask God to create in you a clean heart and renew a right spirit within you.
A waxed cold heart is a heaven burden to carry. A yoke that must be destroyed!
If sin has abound in your heart and has caused it to become waxed cold, it is never too late to repent. Jesus will wash your heart clean and reheat it once again with the fire of the Holy Spirit.
When wax is cold it is solid, but as it begins to heat up by the power of the Holy spirit, it begins to melt and when it has become hot it can then be poured into molds to shape it. It can flow through channels, if kept hot and therefore continue to move freely at God's command.
God is willing to give you a new heart. Jeremiah 24:7 I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.
When the heart of the Holy Spirit has melted your heart, God declares in Philippians 2:13 that He is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.
The spiritual fires has gone out in the hearts of many all over the world today.
Make sure you keep your heart fire burning and others will be drawn by your warmth and will desire to seek coals of fire for their own heart.
Give God your heart on today. He will take your waxed cold heart and turn it into a hot melting pot. Stir up the gift of God that is in you on today! Relight the fire from the furnace of heaven. I guarantee you that waxed cold hearts will begin to melt.
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for one day melting the wax in our hearts with the heat from His burning furnace called the "Holy Spirit."
