“And the love of the great body of people will grow cold because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity.” Matthew 24:12
This is Jesus speaking to His disciples, to us. He is telling them and us about what will take place before He comes again.
We have become so desensitized from viewing all the bloodshed on television, movies and real life that I believe it has caused the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity.
What is the love of the great body of people? A great body of people could be a nation, but I don’t think Jesus was talking about one particular country. Could the love be for God and His statutes? If that love grew cold that would certainly lead to multiplied lawlessness and iniquity. Then look at the next verse. “But he who endures to the end will be saved.”
Has your love grown cold?
