So I had a dream a couple of weeks ago that went like this...i was with a bunch of believers, who turned out to be my family and some friends, and we were trying to have a bible study, but never go around to it. we just hung out, and talked and laughed. then another time we were sposed to have a prayer meeting and no one wanted to do it and i thought to myself, "what the heck is going on here?!" then i was 'waking' up and i heard the still small voice speak, "You Must Know the Word, and Study and Learn it, for there is a Great Famine of the Word, coming to this Land." of course I knew it was the Holy Spirit speaking to my Spirit. I awoke and knew I had to find that scripture! i dint know exactly where it was so i started reading in the first testament. Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah...i dint see it. then i asked my pastor. he gave me a scripture in the second testament, but i knew that wasn't it and told him it was in the first. then he sent me this one...
11 “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord God,“That I will send a famine on the land,
Not a famine of bread, Nor a thirst for water,But of hearing the words of the Lord.
12 They shall wander from sea to sea,And from north to east;
They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the Lord,
But shall not find it.
Yes! that's the one!!
i also read a few other scriptures that said it was very rare in those days of the first testament, for the Voice of God to come into our very being. Rare. 1 Samuel 3:1 Now the boy Samuel ministered to the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation.
Why was it so rare? could it be that there wasn't many Godly men (women) who had such an intimate relationship with God, that His Word was not Present...?!
I was thinking, Today there are SO many people on this earth, and many, many believers! Many who claim to know and hear the voice of God.
Matthew 7:15-16 says - Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?
How can you believe someone is a true prophet of God or even a minister of the Lord, to bring TRUTH into our lives...?!?! There are so many VOICES in the land today...
The ONLY way we will be able to KNOW the TRUTH is to KNOW WHO the TRUTH is and WHO the WORD is!!
! John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
I just Love the Word!! According to this verse, the Word is a He who was in the beginning with God...could this be Jesus...?! Psalm 107:20 He sent His word and Healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. O BOY!! I LOVE THE WORD!
