Today I remembered Taboth: how he forsook me, in the thick of the labour committed to our trust, and departed to Sisimy — the capital city of the fallen Seraphim, where wealth is amassed through avarice, gain via false-scale, and nudity is the price-tag for fame.
The night before he departed, he engaged me with so much geneologies, and unlearned questions — those that causes religious strifes and bitterness. I never knew that night will be our last together(under the same Commandant, fighting for the same course). Although, I perceived unbelief, doubt and weariness in his questions that night. I laboured to awaken his faith and to rekindle his waning hope, just as iron sharpeneth iron. However the allure, fame, wealth and glamour promised him at Sisimy has blinded his spiritual eyes; that seeing he should not see, and hearing he should not understand. SELAH
I wept for three days after he departed, groaning in prayers for his return, looking uphill for his appearing — just as one watching and praying. On the fourth night he was gone, I decided to move on. That night I knew what loneliness mearnt. All of Taboth’s questions came tormenting me, trying my belief; but the Spirit of the LORD came to my rescue, and His word to my comfort.
“Remember Paul’s account of Demas” The Spirit gently spoke to my heart. I opened the scroll in my hand and I began to read
2 Timothy 4:3-10 KJV
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; [4] And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. [5] But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. [6] For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. [7] I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: [8] Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. [9] Do thy diligence to come shortly unto me: [10] FOR DEMAS HATH FORSAKEN ME, HAVING LOVED THIS PRESENT WORLD, AND IS DEPARTED unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia”.
Hmmm…Beloved, no man can love the pleasures and promises the world offers and still commit to loving God. You cannot serve two masters — just the same way you cannot look up and look down at the same time. You either serve God or you serve Mammon: But choose God, because it is what the LORD does that shall be forever!

  1. Amen and amen. Thanks so much, Heinsight counselor for sharing such an in-depth truth about how the love of many is waxing cold in these times and seasons. The truth is conscious listening and paying attention to the inside witness are needed on daily basis. This is what will help us to distinguish between dark grey and black. Paul said in I Corinthians 10 vs 23 ;
    ‘Everything is lawful’, but not everything is helpful. ‘Everything is lawful’, but not everything builds you up’ (NTE). I pray that we will consciously do the latter and build the culture of doing what builds our inner man in Jesus name.
