Cope is a group that is very concerned about the struggles their love ones are having with addiction, behavior, and relationship issues. The group would like to learn how they could somehow help their love ones. Many in this group have had to suffer the consequences of being a victim of circumstance. Consequently, many of the participants in this group have had to separate themselves from their love ones due to the lack of trust.Our goal is to bring love ones back together in unity and in love. This can only happen through using biblical principals that will show people how much God love them regardless of what they have done in dealing with the issues that they are facing. The issue of hurt, worry, stress, and anxiety are referred to as stronghold in the bible. We encourage our participants to allow God to help them break these strongholds that should not be apart of their lives by understanding what is going in this world by believing what is said in the bible regarding the things they are going through. The Bible say in
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, un-thankful, unholy,  Without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,  Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
Perilous times means difficult, troublesome, trying, uneasy, hard, violent, threatening, and dangerous days. The picture is that of people turning to and fro, here and there, not knowing which way to turn. “The last days” is a Biblical term that points to the end of the present age, the days right before the return of Christ, and the end of the world. It should be noted, however, that the marks of the end time are somewhat characteristic of all ages, but they are to be intensified in the last days.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves.
It means selfishness and self-centeredness, to focus upon oneself and one’s own pleasure and flesh instead of upon God and other people. To put oneself before others: wife, husband, parents, child, friends, neighbors, God. To put one’s own will before God’s will, to seek one’s own desires without considering others, to go after what one wants even if it is unwise and hurts others. To feel that everyone and everything should revolve around oneself, to focus upon one’s own pleasure and flesh and ignore the crying needs of the desperate and dying. Self-love sets one up like a god and feels that nothing matters as much as the pleasure of oneself. In the last days people will love themselves more than they love anyone else. Selfishness will be one of the terrible marks of the last days.
Disobedient to parents;
People will be disobedient to parents refusing to do what one’s parents say; rebelling against one’s parents; showing disrespect to parents; rejecting parental instruction; dishonoring parental example. If a child will not honor and respect his mother and father, who will he respect? If a child will mistreat his parents—those who are the closest to him—who else will he mistreat? If a child will not obey his parents, those who love and care for him most, who then will be obey? Parents are the ones who gave birth, loved and cared for the children of the world. If the children are not loyal to them, then the children will not be loyal to anyone. The home, society, and civilization will crumble.
How can I overcome these perilous times?
You over come by accepting Jesus Christ and the New Covenant in you life.Hebrews 8:10-12 (KJV)
