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. Amos 8:11-12These days are here, and there is a famine in the land; in the entire world. Where are the shepherds, the Pastors of the flocks? They have been bought with money, and tell the peoples what they want to hear. They have made their choice to serve man rather than God.
Those who do it best have large congregations of people who meet in places they call churches, but the peoples who meet there are not part of God's Church, they are just members of a corporate body that gives them the outward appearance of holiness. They promote the doctrines of men and not God.
The few Shepherds that do serve God, and preach the word, have very small congregations that are dwindling, because man has turned away from God. He has found sin to be appealing and finds it annoying that a preacher would remind him of his sin, rather than excuse it.
So the day is nearly over and the darkness comes. The judgment of God on this world and its inhabitants is near. Is this a secret? Do they not know? Perhaps they believe that God cannot hear? Or that God cannot see? Perhaps they don't believe in God at all? Is that possible? ...... No, it is not.
And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? Revelation 6:15-17They know God sits on the throne and His power is unstoppable; They know God has come to Judge them; They know God knows their sins; They refuse to repent, and instead look to escape God's punishment.
They are currently in the process of removing God from every place that might remind them of Him, and His coming judgment. They have taken God out of the schools, government buildings, and even the oaths officials now take are not done with their hands placed on the Bible. The US Supreme Court closed it's front entrance so those coming in do not see the Bible verses embedded in the concrete of the building.
Woe to the peoples of this earth, their thoughts are wicked and their feet run to evil. God chose the Jewish peoples to represent Him on this earth, and when they turned away He used the Christians. Soon He will remove the remnant, those Christians, and will once again use the Jewish nation as the light to the world.
The wicked one knows this and is turning the entire world against the Jews, first and foremost, and the Christians. The wicked one knows the Christians will be gone soon, and is focusing on the Jews because most of them will remain.
Thus God will fulfill His promise in saying:
Behold, I will gather them out of all countries, whither I have driven them in mine anger, and in my fury, and in great wrath; and I will bring them again unto this place, and I will cause them to dwell safely: And they shall be my people, and I will be their God: And I will give them one heart, and one way, that they may fear me for ever, for the good of them, and of their children after them: And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, that I will not turn away from them, to do them good; but I will put my fear in their hearts, that they shall not depart from me. Jeremiah 32:37-40During the most horrific time in human history, the time of God's judgment on this world, He will chastise Israel and bring them again to Him, and He will use them to reach the entire world with the gospel.
The light is nearly gone, the sun almost down, the twilight is here, and the darkness is neigh upon this world. Those who have accepted God's great gift of His Son Jesus Christ's atonement for their sins will be removed into His presence in heaven, in the moment just before the twilight ends and the darkness begins.
Will you be there? Or will you remain to go through the darkest period in human history? The choice is yours to make, but make it soon, time is running out. Choose Wisely.
