TRUTH IS ALWAYS TRUTH: The prophetic value of God’s Word does not pass away.(A) (9 JULY ’16) The Scriptures say that God inspired men to write profitable words (B). These Words are so powerful that they cut both ways—to the speaker and receiver—like a two-edged sword.(C) The Word is pure and gives life, even eternal life.(D) We cycle in and out of particular dynamics, because God, Satan & rebellious mankind continue acting out their natures. So older spiritual truths still apply. Today’s message is a simple one…God’s Word is to become rare in the end times—there will be a spiritual vacuum—people will seek spiritual truths and NOT find them!! And in stark contrast to the rapture theorists (false prophets that claim no one needs to be holy or courageous, because God is going to wisk all the –by the way apostate– Christians away from any harm), these verses below teach us that God will start His judgment at the House of God!
Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: 12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.
THE RESULT OF THIS FAMINE FOR GOD’S TRUTHS? Amos 9:8 Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom [sinful false Kingdom of God], and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD. 9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth. 10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.
RE-READING THE VERSE ABOVE & its FOLLOWING VERSES>> Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: 12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. 13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst. 14 They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again.
There you have it. Spiritual truths will become rare, and those who think “evil will not overtake us”(rapture theory) will be judged. And even fair lovely virgins—the innocent—will faint. These truths were true in the past, and their value continues. It encourages me that YHWH God forsaw all this.
