The subject is "A FAMINE IN THE LAND"
Amos chapter 8 verses 11 & 12
“Behold, the days come, saith the Lord Jehovah, 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 Jehovah. 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 Jehovah, and shall not find it”
May I start by telling us the exact picture of our world today. There is what is called FAMINE. The word you have just heard now is a state of no food in the land. You may call it, extreme scarcity of food in a family or land. It is a severe shortage of food caused by several factors, including crop failure, population unbalance or some governmental policies. The time of famine is a time of great lack, starvation, want, poverty, deficiency, scarcity and probably death. Anytime, you hear the word "Famine" you should know that things are out of shape and demands urgency, else the result will be as worse as anything.
You should know that the first famine recorded in the word of God was that of Abraham after he pitched his tent on the East of Bethel in Genesis chapter 12 verse 10. You also see the record of the great famine in the ancient civilized city of Egypt which affected the entire world in Genesis 41:53-57. Even, the case of the great famine in Samaria which arose to the extent of some women devising some techniques to survive- I mean by killing their children to eat and to survive in 2 kings chapter 6 verses 25 to 29;
And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an ass's head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a kab of dove's dung for five pieces of silver. And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying, Help, my lord, O king. And he said, If Jehovah do not help thee, whence shall I help thee? out of the threshing-floor, or out of the winepress? 28, And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to-day, and we will eat my son to-morrow. So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him; and she hath hid her son.
Friend, you should know that in the book of Matthew chapter 24 verse 7, Jesus predicted that famine shall be seen in the last days preceding His coming.
