"RE: Ask and even the small hints of HIS coming are shown"

 
Hello, John and Doves,
 
Brother Jimmy, it is an irony that the KJV renders Matthew 24:12 as,
"And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold."
 
Candles are made of wax.  A cold candle is one that is not lit.
This remez links us directly to Matthew 25:1-13, the Parable of the Ten Virgins.
 
Again, the LORD is telling all who will listen, "Don't be foolish.  I will not hesitate to leave you behind."
 
Baruch HaShem Yeshua Ha Mashiach,
Mike C.

"Ask and even the small hints of HIS coming are shown"

Hi All,

 

Jesus is so faithful when HIS children ask – this morning I asked HIM to make me aware of even the small things pointing to HIS imminent arrival – man and did HE come thru today in a big way.

I belong to a mainline church and our congregation (on the church books) numbers between 3000 and 4500 souls.

We have a carols by candlelight feast every year around about this week – and this year it is scheduled for Friday evening. We all contribute a small amount to the communal food and get together to eat, fellowship and sing carols by candlelight to HIS glory as is the tradition in our congregation ….

Well this morning I got a call from the church office saying that the carols by candlelight has been cancelled – the first time ever – due to lack of interest – there were between 15-20 people who indicated that they would attend out of a congregation of 4000.

How does the text go… in the last times love of many will grow cold and they will go into the world forsaking the gathering together of the faithful – so sad but HE COMES MARANATHA
