One of the more intriguing prophesies of the end of this age is the coming “famine of the Word.” When and how will it happen? Are we starting to see some of the symptoms of this curse upon society today? Are western nations starting to fall fast away from bedrock Christian Biblical knowledge already? Is the most Bible oriented nation, America, also falling away from the Truth?
We know that in the end times the Beast will lead the world into a great falling away from the Truth. Is the world beginning to long for an all inclusive, big government state to solve all our problems? Big socialistic governments always use propaganda to mislead and manipulate the public. The warning from God states that :
“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.
“In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst” (Amos 8:11-13).
