“And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.”
The Bible says, when it comes to love, Satan talks a good game.
TALK A GOOD GAME: “If you talk a good game, it means that when you discuss something you sound sincere (or knowledgeable), but when it comes right down to it, you are not sincere in what you say, or you don’t really know what you’re talking about.”
The end times (like the present) is about the world saying one thing (It’s all about LOVE!), but doing something altogether, completely different.
At present, the world and the men exalted by the world talk an endless talk about love, brotherhood, tolerance and peace. Among their many claims: that if only we could get rid of the “haters” there would be peace on earth and goodwill to men.
But the Bible paints a different picture of how men will be in the end times. Most readers can see that man is getting worse instead of better.
“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
—2 Timothy 3:1-5
The reader doesn’t have to try very hard to compile a list of the people being blamed by others for the “bad shape the world is in.”
The list includes (but is not limited to): leaders, businessman, labor, illegal aliens, Democrats, Republicans, liberals, conservatives, fake liberals, fake conservatives, the Chinese, the Germans, Jews, Muslims, Christians, whites, blacks, Hispanics…
The anger and hate in the public (the pre-election campaign in the USA is one good example) gets worse while the powers that be insist that we’re ready to enter a time of unprecedented progress, brotherhood, unity and love.
Satan has his own definition of “love” and it is not the same as God’s. And the deceitful workers and worshipers of the dragon (Satan) will follow along after his perverted end times “love.”
Many times, the “love” the world is prattling on about is what the Bible calls sin. It’s also the motivating force behind the end times killing of many of the few Christians left in this world.
The world can’t have brotherhood and tolerance if a few insist on clinging to Jesus.
“And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.”
“I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God,”
And those cheering on the slaughter will include the tares and counterfeits who populate today’s churches.
So while the world is slaughtering Christians, they’ll be talking up a storm about love and tolerance.
Does that seem so very far-fetched?
“And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.”

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
