The  Days of "Wear Out"
 and "Wax Cold"
      Many of the Signs that we are seeing are wars and rumors of more wars across the World.  Syria and its mass murdering of people, Russia taking control of the people of Ukraine, China and its cyber attack on the US who stole the intelligence of our weapons here in the USA, Iran threatening Israel and the US with Nuclear Weapons, Asteroids falling from Space into the Earth's atmosphere, more Earthquakes, Wild fires, Tornadoes, Floods, Mud Slides, Drought, Hail Storms, Snow in May and June - weather that seems to be out of control!  The terribleness of the Tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, the two Islam terrorists in Boston, Massachusetts that used bombs to kill and maim Americans in the name of Allah all happening one right after another and at times all at one time!  Some people were found to have died from heart attacks from these, "fearful events."  Luke 21:10-11,26 (KJV) tells us some of the Signs, "Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: 11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven . . . 26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth:"
     And yet we see other Signs that are evil attacks of the enemy.  One is that a mutant version of the 1918 "Spanish flu" virus that killed tens of millions of people has been purposely created by Scientists.  In addition, another is being called by the World Health Organization (WHO) as an outbreak.  (WHO) has stated that this is, "a threat to the whole World" and it is called "novel coronavirus."  Luke 21:11 (AMP) show us, "There will be . . . pestilences (plaques: malignant and contagious or infectious epidemic diseases which are deadly and devastating); and there will be sights of terror and great signs from heaven."  All of these are what Jesus said would be happening in the Last Days and all of these we are seeing concurrently, which tells us what time we are living in.  And yet Church, we ARE NOT TO BE FEARFUL, even though the enemy is bringing "fearful events!"  We are the righteous and WE are to be living in faith!  ". . . but  the righteous person will live by his faith." (Habakkuk 2:4 (NIV))
     Now with saying all of that, we need to know in addition to ALL THE MANY SIGNS and WAYS the Lord told us what the Days would be like before His return, two more traits that will be among us is where we will "park" and that is the Days of the "Wear Out" and "Wax Cold."  We have in times past also went into deep teaching about the Anti-Christ and what he will do and be like.  And yet there are still two more areas that we must discuss.  These actions and the "culture" that will be set up by the spirit of Anti-Christ to prepare for his "appearance" are actions that he WILL DO TO THE CHURCH, HERSELF!  Don't miss this Church!
     In Daniel 7:25 (KJV) it reads, "And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, . . ."  In Daniel Chapter 7 we read about the End Times and about the Anti-Christ.  One of the prophetic descriptions that is shown to us here is that the Anti-Christ and the spirit of him will "wear out" the Saints of God.  So, we know that this "treatment" will happen right before we are Raptured out of here!  The Hebrew word for "shall wear out" in Daniel 7:25 is (bela') (OT: 1080) which means "used only in a mental sense; to afflict; The Hebrew Root Word for (bela') (OT: 1080) is OT:1086 which is (balah) which means, a primitive root; to fail; by implication to wear out, decay consume, enjoy long, become (make, wax) old, spend, waste. 
     The Bible is letting us know that one thing that the enemy will do to the Saints of God in the Last Days is try to "wear us out!"  And he will attempt to "wear out" the Saints in "a mental sense," which is through our minds!  He will bring SO MUCH at us that it will "consume" and devour our time, resources and relationships to that we have nothing left to give.  The enemy will bring continual "issues" in our lives that will distract us; some will be "old issues" that the enemy has "long enjoyed" bringing and overtaking us with and some will be "new issues or matters."  These "issues" or "matters" that the enemy will bring on the Saints will absolutely "spend" and use up the best part of us and our lives. 

     Can you relate, Beloved of God?  Has there been a wave of attacks against you, your family, your body, your property, your possessions, your time, your ministry, your job, your family, your finances or your name?  If you can say "yes" then we are now uncovering the plan of the enemy, he's trying to "wear you out" friend in these Last Days!  Just the other day, Dewayne and I were talking about all the things that have come against us in some form in the last 6 months to a year.  It was like we listed and kept listing all that had happened to us.  Then I heard this scripture in Church and it dawned on me . . . that is what had been happening to us!  The enemy was trying to "wear us out!"  He was attempting in these Last Days to have these matters in our lives "consume" and "spend" us!
      Now, I bolded the words, become (make, wax) above in the Hebrew definition of the words, "shall wear out" in Daniel 7:25 for a reason.  There is another place in The Word that talks about "wax" and that too is in reference and a description of the Last Days.  And it's in the New Testament Chapter that has a lot to say about the times before Jesus returns.  In Matthew 24:10-13 (KJV) it tells us, "And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound,  the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."  The Word is telling us some key things here about The Last Days before Jesus returns, "then shall many be offended."  The word "offended" means, to cause displeasure, anger, resentment, or wounded feelings in.  To be displeasing or disagreeable to: To transgress; violate: To cause to sin.  To violate a moral or divine law: sin.  So, The Bible is saying that MANY will be angered, have resentment and be wounded.  And yet, we are NOT TO HAVE OFFENSE IN OUR LIVES! (Matthew 18:35, Luke 7:23, James 1:19 (AMP))  So, the tactic of the enemy is to get you and I offended so that we are breaking God's law and sinning and staying in sin!   
      The Word goes on to explain that Believers in Christ Jesus, "shall betray one another, and shall hate one another."  The "offenses" that the Church has in their lives and has not repented for will advance them in their minds and lives to justifying themselves to betray and hate others.  And again, we must remember, this is a Last Days scheme of the enemy towards us, Church!  We are also given a hint of WHO the enemy will use often to cause offense and it is false prophets.  "And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many."  There will be people in the Church who will speak one way and act another, Leaders who will deceive many and not preach and teach The Word, Ministers and People of God who will not stand for Truth but will tell of things that "itch men's ears."  

     "Herald and preach the
 Word!  Keep your sense of urgency [stand by, be at hand and ready], whether the opportunity seems to be favorable or unfavorable.  [Whether it is convenient or inconvenient, whether it is welcome or unwelcome, you as preacher of the Word are to show people in what way their lives are wrong.] And convince them, rebuking and correcting, warning and urging and encouraging them, being unflagging and inexhaustible in patience and teaching. 3 For the time is coming when [people] will not tolerate (endure) sound and wholesome instruction, but, having ears itching [for something pleasing and gratifying], they will gather to themselves one teacher after another to a considerable number, chosen to satisfy their own liking and to foster the errors they hold, 4 And will turn aside from hearing the truth and wander off into myths and man-made fictions." (2 Tim. 4:2-4 (AMP))  Many of the Brethren will be used of Satan to cause offense in these Last Days! 
     "12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold."  What "iniquity" is He talking about here?  The "iniquity" or sin of "offense!"  The enemy will use people in The Church to bring offense, which leads to betrayal and hatred, which are all sin.  Church, we have to make ourselves aware and guard our minds and hearts in this!  The enemy will use people that are close to you to "get to you!"  It could be your family in the natural or your family in The Lord or both!  Just know that the enemy will tempt to offend you with those who matter to you.  The wounds by those close to you will have a better probability to get to you in offense than someone who is not as important and significant to you in your life.  And the result of staying in offense will be that you Beloved will become "wax cold." 
     Wax has no life.  Wax only looks like a replica of someone and what their appearance is, not the real person.  Wax is only a figurine, a statue or model of WHAT WAS!  Don't allow the enemy to trick you into being in offense and leaving your life and future with Jesus!  The enemy will leave you waxed and allow offense to suck the life and eternal life right out of you!  "13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."  
"Wax" replicas
     We have got to handle it like Jesus did!  People "in the Church" or religious fold of his day were CONSTANTLY coming against Him!  They would interrupt His Services and Meetings and yell publicly at Him terrible things and try to trick Him and make Him look bad in front of others.  And even His own friend, disciple and Ministry Staff Accountant betrayed Him!  Yet, Jesus wouldn't allow Himself to get into offense!  He refused to allow Himself to sin and not forgive those who came against Him.  He came to show us HOW TO NOT GET INTO OFFENSE and STAY OUT OF OFFENSE and FORGIVE!  He refused to allow the betrayals and hatred toward Him, move Him!  He became an expert at forgiving!
     So, the Days of "Wear Out" and "Wax Cold" are a direct strike against us in The Church.  Allowing the enemy to "wear you out" mentally and emotionally will bring the same result as offense does mentally and emotionally . . . it turns you to "Wax!"  And Jesus told us in Matthew 24 about the storms and wars and all the terrible Signs that we would see in The Last Days, yet He emphasized offense as, "But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved" in verse 13.  Offense is the one Sign that will be the greatest challenge for us all in these Last Days before Jesus' return.  The Anti-Christ and his work before his debut will try to "wear us out" with this Church!  He needs us out of his way and off the battlefield and if he can get us through our minds and emotions and get us in offense and staying in offense, he's got us!
     Let us be smart about this Church!  Just like when we witness the Signs in these Last Days of storms, wars and rumors of wars and all that The Bible has told us we will see, let us also recognize the strike or Sign that comes at us with offense and the enemy trying to wear us out!  It's a Last Days Sign also.  It may not be on the evening news for everyone to see and on the "outside" of us, but it will be a Sign that we will recognize on the inside of us!  We refer you back to a Word that The Lord gave us on 25 February 2013 to "CONCENTRATE!" "CONCENTRATE!" "CONCENTRATE!" at
