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."

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