Hard Hearts Need to be Broken

January 3, 2016

As we look around the world today, there is no doubt about the proclamation of biblical truth which tells us that the closer we get to the end times, “the love of many will grow cold.”

Mat 24:12

“And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

In fact, read the entire account in Matthew 24!

This passage begins with the disciples asking Christ what the signs will be of His return.

Mat 24:3

Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

Jesus begins with a warning:

Mat 24:4

And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.

Deception, in its many forms, runs deep today!

  •  Radical Islam and the satanic terrorism they invoke in order to kill, steal and destroy.
  • The lying and deceitful false flag operations of our government in order to brain-dirty the minds of the people against our second amendment rights.
  • The “black lives matter” movement propaganda designed to entice the ignorant to hate and kill police, white people, babies in the womb and anyone else they deem unworthy or matters little in this life.
  • The lies and treasonous acts of politicians that go unchallenged and unpunished.

I could spend the entire day listing all of the deceptions going on! And, if you read all of Matthew 24 you will notice how accurately Jesus predicted the future [NOW!] where we would experience the “birth pangs” of the end times!

There are politicians out there – some better than others – who are using great sounding slogans to get voters to follow their campaigns in the hopes of becoming the next President of the United States.

Make America Great Again” – Donald Trump

“A New American Century” – Marco Rubio

“Courageous Conservatives, Reigniting the Promise of America” – Ted Cruz

“Heal, Inspire, and Revive” – Ben Carson

“Join Us to Restore a Safer, Stronger, Freer America” – Jeb Bush

“Donate to my campaign” – Hillary Clinton [Well, that’s what I saw before being able to view her campaign site!]

“Can you make a contribution to our campaign?” – Bernie Sanders Further down in the paragraph he says, “I believe America is ready for a new path to the future.” [Hey Bernie! Socialism DOES NOT WORK and has been a disaster the many decades to those nations that have succumbed and suffered under despots teetering on [and then enacting]  communism!]

No matter who becomes president, the mess inherited from B. Insane 0bama will be awful! It will take decades to fix and it will probably get even much worse over the next year of  fairy tale “climate change,” taking away gun rights, as well as socialism and Islamism being pushed upon us!  The “cope with the chains” that have continually been illegally put upon Americans over the past 7 years of devastation will take a lot of time to unravel and most likely would never be solved by one presidential term!

Being Christians, we know that by following and adhering to Christ we are not to be of this world.

Rom 12:2

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

So, what is the antidote against the many ills of this fallen world?

As you will notice, the antidote is not what worldly adherents would tell you!

The Bible tells us:

Psa 34:18

The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.

Psa 51:17

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
A broken and a contrite heart—
These, O God, You will not despise.

When I ran a message board back in 2007, a visitor named “Rocky” often posted very profound messages that he wrote in prose through his  study of the Bible and the Gospel of Christ. I would like to share one of them which discusses the need for us all to understand that “Hard Hearts Need to be Broken.”

Hard Hearts Need to be Broken

by Rocky Chambers

I saw crumbs falling from the table of God

Many were hungry dogs ravenously devouring these crumbs

Then I saw that each dog was a man I knew

And that each crumb was something that had fallen into this world

These desires where endless appetites, as hunger and thirst that could never be quenched

I looked and I saw some crumbs in my own hands

The Lord then said to me, ‘put those down son and come eat at my table’

I answered, ‘what about these, will they not come too’?

The Lord answered,  ‘these are those of whom it is written,

‘you have forsaken me the spring of living waters

You have dug your own cistern which can not hold water’

I pondered the meaning of this and then the Lord continued,

‘these are like dogs at the children’s table

Although they eat, they are never satisfied

The crumbs from my table whet their appetites

But they never come to the table to eat with me

They are always discontented and dissatisfied

Their hearts are bitter and calloused

Their desires weary and fatigue them

They are like restless and discontented children’

Ever demanding this or that but are never contented

They do not know the secret to contentment

Their desires wound them and disturb them

Like wind blowing across open waters brings the sea to a rage

Their hearts are troubled and easily become enraged

This is their bitterness and what hardens their hearts’

Then I saw my heart on a great anvil

The Lord brought down a great hammer and struck it with a mighty blow

My heart was broken and I wept bitterly

The tears were the bitterness of my heart being poured out

Then as I looked again the Lord had replaced my heart with a new heart

A hearing heart, a heart of flesh

And He said, ‘If only they would be broken

Hard hearts need to be broken

Then they would hear, and turn and I would heal them

Then they would become land that drinks in the water

That produces a crop useful to me’
