The first part of Jesus' statement "Iniquity shall abound" is easy to realize as we see the abortion rate not only skyrocketing, but also becoming more favored by society. Why is this important? The third of the seven things God hates most is the shedding of innocent blood. The first thing God hates is a proud look. You can readily see how pride is being manifested in almost every sport today, and even in some parades. In some cases a proud look might be justified as an accomplishment achieved, but not when it involves a "look at me" and a "how good I am" type attitude. The second thing God hates is a lying tongue. Another sign easy to spot and is rampant in politics, the news media, nations and elsewhere.
So where do we see the love of many waxing cold? Well, today, just about everywhere. Road rage, gang violence, terrorism, schools, politics, neighbors, religions, news media, racial issues, late night TV, and the list goes on.
Whereby iniquity causes sickness, diseases, hatred, and a host of other bad things, love covers a multitude of sin and that frees us from sickness, diseases, hatred and the like. Consider this: "If you do not love your neighbor whom you can see, how can you love God whom you cannot see?" The devil wants everyone to hate, because he is the father of hate and lies. But you my friend, do not fall into his traps. Study the Word to find yourself approved unto God and spend time in prayer even if for a few minutes. God will bless you and if it is the last days, you will be prepared for whatever happens and you shall not be deceived.
