Topic: Lovelessness And Wickedness In The End Time
SCRIPTURE: And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Matthew 24:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The closer we get to the end of the age, the less love we find in the hearts of people.
Scriptures make it very clear that we are in the end of the age (Matthew 24:3, 2 Timothy 3:1). As a generation, we are closer to the end of the age more than ever before.
Now, as we get closer to the end of the age, there are signs we see everywhere. In medicine, we have signs and symptoms of diseases. The symptoms are the things the patient tells the doctor while the signs are the things the doctor elicits from the patient. In the same way, there are signs and symptoms of the end time.
In our previous studies, we have already looked at some signs of the end time.
Today, we shall look at yet another sign, which is the abundance of lovelessness and wickedness (Matt. 24:12).
Sometime ago, I spoke with a young girl. She told me, “Sir, the woman that calls herself my mother, I wonder if she actually gave birth to me. This is because no mother can be as wicked as she is to a child of her womb”. Wickedness or lovelessness is a sign of the end time.
We live in a time where parents can say that over their dead body would their own children get married or pregnant. There are people today whose root of suffering in life is from their home – either their mother or father; their uncle or a relation, is behind their predicaments. When they are about to rise in life, they are confronted with diverse resistance, as if to say: “Where do you think you are you going? What do you think you want to become?” And such people usually end up crashing in life as a result of witchcraft manipulations. This is wickedness! It is a sign of the end time.
We live in a world of terrible wickedness and lovelessness. You should not be surprised about the wickedness of people because wickedness is a sign of the end time. People shall be loveless and wicked. We have heard stories of people who sacrificed their mother or a very close relative for ritual money. One of such persons came to see me in my office some time ago. His eyes were very red. He had killed his mother to get money. Then I asked him, ‘Where is the money now?’, Unfortunately, he had no money! He didn’t get the money after all the atrocity he committed.
Beloved, the closer we get to the end of the age, the less love we find in the hearts of people. Genuine love will not be found anywhere except in God and in the church of Christ.
