2 Timothy 3:1-3 - "But realize this, that in the last days, difficult times will come. For men will be ... unloving (without family love, Greek = astorge), irreconcilable..."
Remember divorce in the United States can be for the reason of irreconcilable differences. God told us this would happen 2,000 years ago!
Things were bad enough for Adam V and Evanna, but now there are 2 more things attacking marriage:
- "As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, "Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?" And Jesus answered and said to them, "See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, I am the Christ, and will mislead many. You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs. Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. Because lawlessness is increased, most people's love will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come."
As lawlessness increases, a bucket of water is being thrown on love - it grows cold! Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
The first scripture talks about family love (storge) being absent, non-existent and
Matthew 24:12 mentions Godly love (agape) growing cold.
So lets apply this to Adam V and Evanna's great gr......grandchildren.
Adam MMIX Zeva
Also don't forget Mark 10:8 "And the two shall become one flesh, so they are no longer two, but one flesh."
Side Note: Is this why so many couples live together and don't marry? They are afraid of becoming one, they each want what they want from the other, but have a hard time giving of themselves - Back to Marriage.
See you all in No.15 for God's answers...
