Scripture: Matthew 24:11-13
We are told in verses 11-13, “Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” The chief issue God is looking for is the ability to endure/plan-ah-o. It means to be consistently steadfast in pursuing a goal. Regardless of the opposition, we are continuing to march after the prize and we refuse to stop. There are many distractions for this season. Deception is rampant. False prophets are growing. Lawlessness is increasing. The love of many is growing cold. And the issue of endurance is rising to the forefront for the church. Can we endure to the end? Will we continue in the straight and narrow path or be drawn off into deception? No one predicted even thirty years ago that major denominations would turn apostate and sanction perversion! Will we pursue being a glorious church without spot wrinkle or blemish that Jesus called into existence? Will we demand the justice of God on those who choose to go another direction and are in fact destroying the earth and filling it with iniquity? Mercy to the real church is judgment on the crooked counterfeit. May the Sword of the Spirit cut off the enemy!
