What’s Happened To Love

Prophesying of the time on Earth right before his Second Coming, Jesus flatly said: “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold” (Matthew 24:12).  I spoke about this phenomenon on pages 327-333 of my book, while explaining the deep meaning behind Jesus’ parable of the talents. Briefly, deeds of iniquity, no matter how big or small, almost always foster more iniquity in others – like being given the middle finger while driving may cause a man to go home and be hateful to his wife, or like the murder of one’s child may cause unforgiveness in its mother.

Now please understand “deeds of iniquity” are COMPLETELY encompassed in and defined by “10 Commandment (10C) disobedience”.  And “iniquity” is also known Biblically as darkness, unrighteousness, wickedness, lawlessness, evil or just plain ole SIN!  On the other hand, “10C obedience” is known as light, righteousness, holiness, lawfulness, good or just plain ole LOVE!  This is the reason the Apostle Paul wrote: “Love is the fulfilling of the Law (10C)” (Romans 13:10).  Do you recognize the truth in Christ’s words above now?  He was saying (and I paraphrase), “In the last days, as people do evil (10LC disobedience) to each other, more and more people will do evil, and it will spread and grow and spread and grow, until eventually the entire world’s populace has hardly a trace of love (10C obedience) left in them!  Stunning.

This past week a good friend of mine wrote, sung, and recorded a poignant and catchy song mirroring Christ’s message above, entitled “What’s Happened to Love”.  I was so inspired by the melody and lyric that I spent nearly 20 hours creating a video to go along with the song. The video centers around Christmas time, a homeless man, and Jesus’ words, “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:40), and delivers the message, “Don’t forget the Holiday season is about love, as you’re out and about, interacting with others.

I’ve linked the video below for your viewing pleasure.  If you get a free moment, please hit the “share” button under the YouTube video, then click on the “Facebook” link, and share the message with your friends this holiday season.  Let’s make this season (and all year long!) about love, so we don’t have to wonder “What’s happened to love”?
