Folks, we live in precarious times where belief in YHWH/Yeshua/Torah is considered "weird" or a "bad thing." Take a look at what we believers will have to contend with one day:
Revelation 20:4. And I saw thrones, and (persons) sat on them, and judgment was given to them, and to the souls that were beheaded for the testimony of Y'shua and for the Word of Elohim: and these are they who had not worshiped the beast of prey nor its image; neither had they received the mark upon their forehead or on their hand; and they lived and reigned with their Mashiyach those thousand years. (AENT)
Notice the words, "the souls that were beheaded for the testimony of Y'shua AND for the Word of Elohim?"
What is the Word of Elohim? Torah! Those first five Books of the Bible that contain all of YHWH's Divine Instructions to HIS people. (Who are HIS people? ALL those who accept the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and His Divine Messiah! He has no "gray area." Scripture, read in context, reveals that you're either His, or not. Please think about that, because there will be no "lukewarm" or "fence-straddlers" in Eternity. See Rev. 3:16.)
The good news is that Scripture ALSO tells us that those who "endure to the end will be saved!"
Matthew 24:6 You will hear the noise of wars nearby and the news of wars far off; see to it that you don’t become frightened. Such things must happen, but the end is yet to come. 7 For peoples will fight each other, nations will fight each other, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various parts of the world; 8 all this is but the beginning of the ‘birth-pains.’
9 At that time you will be arrested and handed over to be punished and put to death, and all peoples will hate you because of me. 10 At that time many will be trapped into betraying and hating each other, 11 many false prophets will appear and fool many people; 12 and many people’s love will grow cold because of increased distance from Torah.
13 But whoever holds out till the end will be delivered. 14 And this Good News about the Kingdom will be announced throughout the whole world as a witness to all the Goyim. It is then that the end will come.. (CJB)
I've personally been witnessing the love of many "growing cold" for various reasons. Things are NOT going to get any better. We have been steadily seeing increases in wars and "rumors of wars" (terrorism), along with an increase in fires, floods, earthquakes, tsunamies, hurricanes, tornadoes and other natural disasters and devastation of all kinds around the world. We have also been seeing an increase of "man's inhumanity toward man" on every level; along with many other things that leave us "shaking our heads in disbelief."
The only thing we can do is to pray and cling to HIS Word because ultimately, we are all destined for death, at some point - and our choices and behavior here on earth WILL be judged in a place where "tolerance" has never existed (1 Corinthians 6:14; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Revelation 20:11-15)....
Jude 1: 11. Woe to them; for they have gone in the way of Cain; and after the error of Balaam, they have lusted for gain; and in the rebellion of Korah, they have perished. 12. These are they who, in their feastings, riot while polluting themselves, feeding themselves without fear; clouds without rain, moved about by the winds; trees whose fruit has failed, and they are without fruit, twice dead, and uplifted from their root; 13. raging waves of the sea which, by their foam, manifest their confusion; shooting stars for which is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.
14. And of them also prophesied Enoch who was the seventh from Adam when he said: Behold, Master YHWH comes with myriads of his Set Apart believers; 15 to execute judgment upon all and to convict all the wicked because of all the deeds they have wickedly committed; and because of all the hard speeches which they, sinners without Elohim, have uttered.
16. These are they who argue and complain of everything while they walk according to their lusts; and their mouth speaks shocking things; and they flatter people for the sake of gain.
17. But do you, my beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the Shlichim of our Master Y'shua the Mashiyach; 18. because they told you that in the end of the times there would be scoffers going after wickedness according to their lusts.
19. These are they that separate (themselves), sensual persons, not having the Spirit. 20. But, my beloved, you be newly strengthened in your Set Apart faith through the Ruach haKodesh, while you pray. 21. And let us keep ourselves in the love of Elohim while we wait for the mercy of our Master Y'shua the Mashiyach to our eternal life. (AENT)
