AND CLOSE THE FAMINE IS.

TEXT

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:

AMOS THE PROPHET SEES AND WRITES OF A DAY WHEN THE WORD OF GOD WILL NOT BE HEARKENED TO.

IT WILL NOT BE REGARDED AS INSPIRED.

IT WILL BE JUST A RELIGIOUS WRITING WITH SOME HISTORICAL VALUE.

THE CHURCH HAS TURNED A DEAF EAR TO WHAT GOD HAS SAID IN HIS WORD.

WE CAN’T BLAME THE MORAL DEGRADATION ON THE PAGANS.

THEY DON’T KNOW THE WORD OF GOD.

BUT, MANY CHRISTIANS TODAY ONLY WANT TO HEAR SOMETHING GOOD.

II TIMOTHY 4:3 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;

THAT’S WHY CHURCHES ARE FILLED WITH MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKERS WHO ARE NOT CALLED AND ANOINTED OF GOD.

THEY ARE HIRELINGS IN THE PULPITS INSTEAD OF SERVANTS

AND PROPHETS OF THE MOST HIGH.

THEY CAN HAVE A GREAT FOLLOWING,

BECAUSE THEY TEACH,

TALK AND PREACH ABOUT A LIFE OF EASE,

FULL OF PROSPERITY,

FREE FROM SICKNESS AND DISEASE.

BUT, THEY ARE DECEIVING PEOPLE WHO ARE ETERNAL BEINGS.

THEY WON’T SING ABOUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS.

BECAUSE PEOPLE MAY NOT UNDERSTAND

AND MAY BE OFFENDED.

THEY WON’T PREACH ABOUT REPENTANCE.

THEY WON’T PREACH ABOUT HELL.

THEY WON’T PREACH ABOUT IMMORALITY.

BUT, THEY’LL TELL YOU TO SOW YOUR SEED AND REAP A HUNDRED FOLD.

THEY’LL TELL YOU THAT GOD WANTS EVERYBODY HAPPY AND HEALTHY.

THAT GOD WANTS TO TAKE YOU AND YOUR BUSINESS TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

GOD WANTS YOU TO FULFILL YOUR DESTINY.

ALL THE WHILE, COUPLES IN THE CONGREGATIONS ARE SHACKED UP TOGETHER.

THEY’RE IN ADULTERY.

THEY’RE DRUNKARDS.

THEY IDOLIZE MONEY.

AND THEY ARE IGNORANT OF THE WORD OF GOD.

HOSEA 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

DESTRUCTION COMES ON THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW THE WORD OF GOD.

AND MANY IN CHURCH REJECT THE WORD. THEY DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT.

WHY? BECAUSE IT WILL BRING CONVICTION.

BUT, PSYCHOLOGY WITH A LITTLE JESUS MIXED IN SOOTHES THE SINFUL SOUL.

IT MAKES THE ONE IN SIN FEEL COMFORTABLE.

THIS IS WHY THE CHURCH OF LAODICEA IS MENTIONED LAST IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION.

IT’S THE LAST CHURCH AGE JUST BEFORE THE COMING OF JESUS.

LAODICEA IS THE CHURCH THAT’S LUKEWARM.

IF YOU PUT A FROG IN A POT OF BOILING WATER, IT WILL FIGHT TO GET OUT UNTIL IT SUCCUMBS TO THE TEMPERATURE AND DIES.

BUT, IF YOU PUT IT IN LUKEWARM WATER, YOU CAN GRADUALLY TURN UP THE HEAT, AND THE LITTLE FROG WILL JUST ENJOY THE WATER TILL IT COOKS TO DEATH.

NOT EVEN AWARE THAT THE WATER IS GETTING HOTTER AND HOTTER BY THE MINUTE.
