A low condition
of bodily health
is produced by inattention to the laws of nature as to suitable diet.
As this leads
to the "drug habit",
or to the immoderate use of stimulants in the natural sphere,
so it is in the spiritual sphere.
A low condition
of spiritual health
is produced by improper feeding or the neglect of necessary food,
which is the Word of God;
and the end is a resort to all the many modern fashions
and novel methods and widely advertised nostrums in the Religious world
in the attempt to remedy the inevitable results.
The Root of all
which abound in the spiritual sphere at the present day
lies in the fact that the Word and the words of God are not fed upon,
digested, and assimilated, as they ought to be.
Perhaps our Father says it better through the pen of Moses: Deut. 8:3 ... that He might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live. (by bread = by [eating] bread)
I'm sure you get the point.
But here's where we are today?
Did not Jesus
tell the Disciples that another of the signs
to look for just prior to His second coming was
"..there shall be famine.." (see Mk 13:8)?
We are right now in the midst of that famine.
Amos 8:11-12 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:  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 famine of the end times is not for food
but for hearing the Word of God.
Can you go to
most churches in America
and hear the true Word of God taught
line by line and chapter by chapter?
There are some,
but they are few and far between.
hear a few token verses
read aloud in religious monotone....
especially those verses
that seemingly fit the traditions of men.
Our people are starving (spiritually).
To make matters
we as a nation are not only Biblically illiterate
but we have the help of anti-God, anti-Christian,
anti-American groups with great lobbying powers
that seek to eradicate all mention of God and Bible
and even prayer from our schools and government, etc.
Amos 8:11-12, Mark 13:8.... prophecy come to pass.
Do you see it?
