We should be aware that Christ warned us that there will be a viable threat to love and friendships in the Last Days.
“Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved.
“…and ‘a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.”
Matthew 10:21-22,36 (also, Luke 21:16-17 & Matthew 24:10 )
Consider the waning vitality and the impersonality of relationships in this period. Some people only have one good friend, other than his or her spouse. Other ones do not have even one good friend. There are reasons and I cannot find good logic in any of them. People, even families, do not visit each other. They seldom share a meal.

I realize that the overwhelming majority of professing Christians have drifted too far from God to receive warnings. Warnings feel dull, irksome, and fatiguing to their comfortably apathetic souls. Consequently, they have shut their ears, eyes, and minds to prophetic warnings. Apostate Tony Campolo’s book “The Kingdom of God is a Party,” published in 1992, is now an accurate assessment.
We are witnessing in the secular realm total capitulation to evil. No Genuine Christian influence remains. Evil sells. Evil is a quick path to popularity. Evil is pleasurable and fun.
Evil even builds church attendance. Just ask the leaders of denominations and pastors genuflecting at the feet of false prophets, prophetesses, and hirelings—solely because those minions of darkness draw a crowd. Continue reading
