"And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." (Matthew 24:12)
We are living in a wicked day where injustice "abounds" (it's everywhere) - a day when men and women are lovers of pleasures, more than lovers of God (2nd Timothy 3:4). "Iniquity" means "the condition of without law." For many years I had thought Matthew 24:12 was referring to sin in general.Then one day I looked up the meaning of the word "iniquity" in Strong's Concordance and realized I had been mistaken.
The word "Iniquity" wasn't referring to sin, it was referring to those who GET AWAY WITH SIN. In other words, injustice! There is injustice everywhere these days. A perfect example is the 911 attacks on the World Trade Centers in New York. Not one person has ever been brought to justice. The alleged capture of Bin Laden in 2011 was a farce. They dumped his body in the ocean? Right! Then the two dozen members of seal team 6 (that alleged captured and killed Bin Laden) all die when their helicopter blows up a few months later. No there's no witnesses to question. How convenient!
How did 2 planes bring down 3 buildings on 911? Why did WTC 7 fall 23 MINUTES after BBC news said it had fallen? Why were firefighters at ground zero ordered by a NYC judge to shut-up about the bombs planted in the buildings? There's hundreds of these shunned questions since 911. The most damning evidence against the Bush Administration is the unquestioned answers they've provided to us. A legitimate investigation has never been done. Research 911 for yourself! And to add insult to injury, the criminal globalist who pulled-off 911 mock us with an Illuminati display at the Ground Zero Memorial. 911 was an INSIDE JOB! Talk about iniquity!!!
911 is just the tip of the iceberg. The War in Iraq has cost over one million Iraqi's their lives. President's Bush Jr.'s hit team, Black Water, has terrorized the Iraqi's by shooting their men in the buttocks with exploding ammunition for entertainment. It is evil. The entire Iraqi invasion is evil. Jesus said to love thy neighbor; not to covet his land and oil, kill, steal and bear false witness to do it. Anything can be justified if you're willing to distort truth, disregard morals and disobey God.
Americans are already reaping what they have sown for supporting wickedness... killing, raping and corrupting the world with our degenerate Western culture of pornography, violence, arrogance and massive political abusive of power. Everything has a price! Our decadent America society has brought judgment upon us. Our churches today are supportive of criminals leaders who have bankrupt our nation.
I could go on for hours about corruption in America, but that is not the purpose of this article. White-collar crime is running rampant and will only get worse. "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived" (2nd Timothy 3:13). Evil people will get worse and worse, cheating and being cheated. Don't expect much justice - with the kangaroo court system and puppet judges - there is little justice anymore. But God will judge!
Much of what we call "justice" nowadays is no justice at all. If the scales of justice aren't balanced, there is no justice! (e.g., when the lawsuits were through, many states had made a killing (billions) sharing the filthy lucre made by the cigarette companies, but what did the VICTIMS get - cancer and death!). Justice? For who? There is a growing spirit of apathy and indifference in America because of the abundance of corporate corruption and injustice. As believers, we must be understanding as to why so many people are cold-hearted nowadays - because of injustice, corporate crime and government corruption!
It's NOT the sin that's upsetting people, it's the fact that so many criminals are getting away with it - LEGALLY! People are totally disgusted and fed up with convicted criminal politicians who get sentenced to prison at the club fed. They live like kings and queens while in prison at the taxpayer's expense - this is injustice. We vote these politicians into office, into a position of power and much trust - they violate our trust, break the law and then try to cover it up with lies and more corruption - when they do get caught red-handed, they get minimal prison sentences at beautiful college-campus like facilities.
It's sickening to any decent citizen. Corruption, corruption and still more corruption. How about this one - a bunch of crooks rip off HUD for $59,000,000,000 (that's correct, fifty-nine billion) - The main guy at HUD is convicted and then President Clinton pardons him!!! Talk about a cover-up! Of course, the money was never found (taxpayer's money!). Hell will be hot!
I wrote this article to encourage those believers who are disgusted with the coldness of society and the meanness of many people nowadays. God tells us why this is happening - because injustice abounds everywhere we look in the world. Criminals have more rights than the victims! I meet frustrated people every day who are very concerned about being cheated out of their social security, pensions, etc, et cetera.
Now in December of 2011 (going into the dreaded doomsday-cult year of 2012), the Obama Administration is trying to have a Bill passed which would permit INDEFINITE DETENTION of American citizens. If the law is passed (and it will pass, since only 40 out of 535 members of congress oppose it). That's an insult to America!!! 495 members of congress think indefinite detention for U.S. citizen is a good idea. Have you people all lost your minds???
Hard-working American people go to work every day to pay their mortgages, while the banks keep playing games with the economy and interest rates, stealing those homes back. Their game is to insure that Americans are poorer than poor, losing their homes, lost everything to the point where they beg like a dog for the government's help. Bingo... COMMUNISM!!! They send our good paying jobs to foreign soil and then use the joke of the Department of Labor to
I continually remind myself that we are living in a crazy, confused and corrupt world and very few people know the Lord Jesus Christ. "And of some have compassion, making a difference" (Jude1:22). Most people are woefully ignorant of the Bible. It's important that we be patient with people because everyone's having a tough time nowadays. So let that impatient car pass you on the roadway - don't honk your horn at others in anger - be patient with slow employees in the store - relax!
We're living in PERILOUS TIMES (2nd Timothy 3:1-7) and must be wiser than the rude, insulting, hot-headed, frustrated, angry and foolish people that so often cross our daily path. They're not angry at just you, they're angry at everything and everyone. With all the horrible things going on in the world today, I don't expect people to be happy. An unsaved man once told me that he lived by the motto, "Be nice to everybody, trust no one!"
This is the way many people feel nowadays. We must continually remind ourselves about Matthew 24:12. Why are some people so cold and heartless? - Because of the overly abundant iniquity (injustice) in our society. As Christians, we must be smarter than the average bear. The Devil is working round the clock to kill, steal and destroy. We must be sober and vigilant as 1st Peter 5:8 warns. The love of many people has grown ice-cold, we must be patient with them and not become cold ourselves.
May God bless you,
