Of course there is poor and quality fruit after harvest.
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that l will send famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord” – Amos 8:11.
Amos predicted this in the middle of 8th century BC but it is more prevalent among us today. Pastors, Evangelist and Shepherds are afraid to dish out truthful words so as not to offend the richer men and women within the folds. So as not to affect the flow of monetary assistance to the church. Amos predicted further that the congregation will wander from sea to sea to seek for quality word and shall not find, mostly the youth young men and virgin will be thirsty for the word. vs12.
And truly the youth are scampering searching for where to get quality words, they are sick and tired of prosperity sermon. What takes over quality word in churches this days is Motivational talk.
Motivational speakers have turned overnight Pastors. God further warned of impending doom.
“l saw the Lord standing upon the alter:and said, smite the lintel of the door, that the post may shake:and cut them in the head all of them and l will slay the last of them with sword” Amos 91-2
The impending doom for the lsrealites is because they swear by the sin of Samaria Amos8:14.
During the reign of King Ahab in lsreal he set up he set up an Idol of Baal and worship them. 1king16:31-33.
Jeroboam had earlier set 2 idols Golden Calvin one in Dan and one in Bethel. 1king 12:26-31
Joshua warned in during his farewell speech at his old age in sechem that lsreal should keep distance from idolatry nations.
“That ye come not among these nations, these that remain among you;neither make mention of the name of their God’s, nor cause to swear by them, neither serve them, nor bow your yourselves unto them” Josh 23:7
Jesus told the woman beside the well of Samaria “Ye worship ye know not what:we know what we worship:for salvation is for the jews” john4:22.
The Bible says If the people called by my name humbled themselves…l will heal their land. 2-Chron17:14
God is asking you today. Do you know and believe in the God you are serving?
Faith gets crumble easily without a fruitful WORD from the pulpit and self searching of the scriptures.
There must be intense dishing out of the word from the pulpit in respective of whose horse is grudge.
“This Book of Law shall not departed out of thy mouth;but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that it is written there in” Jos1:8
May we all be a doer of His word and not a victim of the impending Famine in Jesus name.
