I softly barked at one of His Beloved last night for asking that question and woke up rebuked, refreshed and cogitating on a scripture phrase. My deep apologies to the Beloved of God. My zeal for my God seems to have reached further than my Love for Him and His. Never a good thing.
18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness....
21For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures."
"28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, 29being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; 32and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them. "
It's that little word unloving that we are seeing. It's the word astorgos which means lacking or without natural familial affection. Storge' love is a mother's love for her children. These people do not have it, having exchanged their natural affections for unnatural. In this verse, it is a cause of God pouring out His wrath. It's not a sign FROM God, it's a sign that His Wrath is forthcoming.
Also 2Timothy 3:1-7 "1But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. 6For among them are those who enter into households and captivate weak women weighed down with sins, led on by various impulses, 7always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. "
That little word unloving is again astorge, lacking the natural familial love. And the answer to why a woman who was near childbirth would stay in a household of sex offenders who kept small children bound to a bed. They were weak women held captive by their sin.
So, not a sign FROM God, but a sign of the times that God's wrath is ready to be poured out and that by seeing these things we know we have already entered the last days.
