Just in case this is a viable and suitable solution for the real problem:

Change the cut-off time so that it is a configuration setting in your
application, then change the test so that it is testing that the cut-off
works for any configured value (i.e., set the value to Time.now + 5.minutes
for the positive case, and Time.now - 5.minutes for the negative).
