News analysis from a prophetic Christian worldview
When the love of many waxes cold
NOTEWhen writing about God and Jesus, The Daily Jot means YHVH as God and Yeshua Ha Mashiach as Jesus--the actual original names and the true nature and character of them.

Speaking of the chronology of the end of days, Christ said in Matthew 24:12,"And because lawlessness shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." This is certainly a sign of the end times. It is not meant to be America-centered, but it is part of a prophecy that will occur in the end of days when the Beast (commonly referred to as the antichrist) rises to power and, as prophesied in Daniel 11:36, "...shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods..." The lawlessness, the iniquity of not following God's law, foments hate-a shadow of which is darkening America today. 
Those who do not follow God's law; those who mock God; those who deny God and his power are the leaders of this hate movement in America, and around the world for that matter. They accuse anyone who disagrees with their sordid immoral beliefs of the most horrible of things. Yet, they, themselves, are the ones practicing the evils. They are quick to jump on any incident to accuse others of the content of their own hearts. Hence, we have things like, "It is evil to build a wall to protect national security," but it is kind and loving to allow an invasion of people intent on taking advantage of welfare programs and health benefits at taxpayers expense, commit horrible crimes, and scoff at Americans in the process.
Christ summed up God's law in Mark 12:28-31: "And one of the scribes came and having heard them reasoning together and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is "Hear O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And you shall love the Lord thy God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is none other commandment greater than these." Herein we can discern that the absence of God's law is the absence of love. 
This is what we are facing here in America. There was a time in America's history that the majority of people aspired to follow God's law. Many who didn't at least were aware that following God's law did no harm and invoked no harm. Today, those who mock God are the loudest hatemongers in society. They conduct their hate by disguising it as love, empathy, equality, and emotion. In reality, these are justifications to disparage anyone who disagrees with their individual beliefs. As is written in 2 Timothy 3, these are proud lovers of their own selves who say and do evil things, are false accusers and rebellious. Even so, we, as disciples of Christ, are to continue in the holy scriptures, wise unto salvation through faith in Christ.

Caring for those even the Church ignores: 
The Disabled in Ghana

By Pastor William Agbeti

[ NOTE: In addition to our ongoing clean water, feeding, and clothing efforts when you support The Daily Jot, you are helping wipe tears off the faces of suffering mothers and fathers seeking rehabilitation of their disabled children]
UN figures put persons living with disabilities in the world at 20% of the global population. 80% of this number can be found in developing countries. In Ghana alone, there are some 3 million persons living with various forms of disabilities. 
Our Ghana ministry serves where others will not.This two-day residential program for children with disabilities provide food, clothing and recreation

Their plight is demoralizing. Many in the Ghanaian society consider them taboos. Scores of local churches have not opened their doors to them. Several families neglect their disabled children, to fend for themselves. Sadly, some communities go to the extreme to put a newly born disabled child into a mortar and use a pestle to pound it to death, with the belief that their souls will not return to the communities again. In the main, the disabled are ostracized from the society. Only a handful of homes, families and communities treat them with a modicum of respect and acceptance. Read the rest of the story by clicking here
