Yes, the spirit of lawlessness and rebellion has taken hold! Unfortunately our young people have no foundation; and public education in America has made them ignorant....and malleable. They are easily manipulated by satanic spirits, most especially the fascists who control the media and academia.

Prayer, prayer and more prayer for the young people of the world; that they would reject evil and open the doors of their hearts to truth through the Word of God...our Lord Jesus Christ.

All the protesting and tearing down Stautes is this the beginning of the end

There is actually more than one book called Enoch. The one translated by Charles is the one those in the Bible community read. The other is about Magic. There is much debate about the contents of that book. Those who deny the Sons of God are the fallen angels of Genesis 6 hate that book. Job 38 tells us the Sons of God shouted for joy at the creation of the earth. Adam did not come until 6 days AFTER the creation of the earth. So Adam could not have shouted for Joy before he was in existence.

Believers do not become Sons of God till they are born of the Spirit in the New Testament. Adam was called a Son of God since he had no earthly mother and Jesus is the ONLY BEGOTTEN Son of God.


Mishael on Bible Covenants's comment on 2020-06-18 13:03:41:

Very enlightening to google Bible Covenants! Covenants are very binding and that's why we are warned to not enter one lightly.

1 Samuel 18:4 Exchanging Armor

And Jonathan stripped himself of the ROBE that was on him and gave it to David, and his ARMOR, and even his SWORD and his BOW and his BELT.

Jesus exchanged HIS armor with US. Why?

Because we are warring against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-18. Read ALL those center column references to other Books. See Isaiah 24:21-22. Romans 13:1-5,11-12; John 12:31

Jesus did not leave us here to just wear a wedding garment and hold a lamp of oil.

He left us scripture that we are to war against spiritual war in the heavenlies. It's about strong faith and prayer: intercession; "standing in the gap". Jesus is making intercession for us right now! People come into the prayer room with grievous problems we SHOULD BE praying & doing war for. Ephesians 6:12, Romans 8:38, Colossians 1:9, 16-17; 2:15. 1 Thessalonians 5:8

Standing in the gap is when you hold a lamb in your arms of prayer, and war against the demonic hoards that are trying to kill it; steal its life, destroy its hope in Jesus! It should make you want to save that lamb. Do you have any lambs in your life? Are you willing to snatch it out of the hands of Satans hoard of demons, WITH the WORD of God?

You have a wealth of Bible Knowledge but are any lambs being saved with weighty speech? Don't you want to receive a Crown at Bema Seat? What would Jesus do? He showed us in His Gospels. If we are His followers we will imitate what he was Doing.

Multitudes of people just in America, are committing suicide for unbelievable reasons. That's on Satans scoreboard. Is there anyone who will challenge that? Do you know how to take the scriptures and frighten the demons off of someone on a chair with a rope around their neck? Or a hypodermic needle going in an arm.

Parents!Pray rightly for your kids. Punch out Satan

My take on it is this: when you go to McDonalds there's always someone asking for change. Many times you'll see the same guy for years on end. rnrnAnyone in a city can tell you about the guys who roll around with gas cans , asking you to spare a few bucks because they just ran out of gas and need to get to work, only to turn around and hit the liquor store. rnrnAfter years and years and tale upon tale of the same old tired lines; there comes a point where you wax cold to the plight of anyone, needing anything! rnrnWhether Christ was convicting the one who waxed cold or the willful deliberate scam artist is open for interpretation.


wesley's comment on 2015-09-05 10:15:34:

I believe that because sin has increased iniquity the love of many shall wax turn cold. Why does a man or woman say to the other, "I don't love you any more, and walks off?" The person's love for their mate has gone cold because of sin. They quit serving God who is Love. Why do some women abandon a child in a dumpster, has their love turned cold because of sin? We are living in the last days. "Awaken Church, there is no one praying".


isaac solomon's comment on 2015-08-17 05:59:46:

mathew 24:12 is even a word of God happening everyd. Love of those that is waxing cold are both the non-christian, and wicked ungrateful christians. Anyone who is not straight-forward and open mind to God and man, his or her love will aways wax cold. Remember no one can see God ordinarily, that is why God said we should learn to do good in the book of isaiah 1:16-17.


Robert Stanley's comment on 2015-07-18 13:00:49:

This verse is talking about the majority of worldly Christians not the non Christians!The world system has always been evil.This verse part of the paragraph of warning to last day Christians.Only Christians in the light will escape the peril of this verse! KJ bible.


Pastor Nyiko Blessed's comment on 2015-06-26 12:51:13:

Olorunfemi M.k's comment on 2015-06-13 21:41:52:

The only thing I know is that every christian must be aware of this and wake up from their slumber because the time is at hand.


Melody AKA Destiny's comment on 2014-08-18 09:38:32:

People today have alot of hate in their hearts .God warns us to love one another.God warns that when we see these things come to pass, look up for your redemption draweth near,even at the door.We need to repent and let the Holy Ghost have His way in our heart.

Robert Miller's comment on 2013-10-29 18:53:13:

I think it is the end times or very near. People have gone sour including myself I try to do good but just takes one little incident to make me forget about being good and I get angry an act on it. Not trying hard enough! Which is really bad because I do brlieve its the end times and im still sinning. What a fool I am!!!! God help us all


Al's comment on 2013-10-01 16:36:27:

Iniquity is a sin that we do knowing and willfully. The Lord gives us power to do his will. He is talking about believers. We are to have true love. Like a candle the wax grows cold when too far from the light or the light hais gone out. The abomination of desulation spoken of by Daniel was a system that changed the laws of God. Isaih said that evil shall be called good. We are warned of false teachers. Interest on money is a form of stealing from the poor. Our society has twisted the parables where the man was afraid and he really did not know the master. Saying that interest is now condoned. Believers partake in this in several ways.we don't help others and hord things for ourselves. We are incouaged to save with interest paid. We are guilty by association. The money lenders to the lending. We are taught that capitism is free enterprise. It forces business to be servant to the lenders demanding payment with interest when it takes time to become profitable. Society then turn to state socialism with often atheistic teachings included. People that are willing to help each other should be society greatest asset not capital. People die for lack of food and water and knowledge with wisdom. There are no shortages in this world. Only evil hoarding. We partake in blood shed of innocent people when we things that are not Godly. We cause others to stumble and fall when we do not manifest the True Love of our Lord.
