I think of the dark ages when I think of a famine of the word. I think another famine of the word is coming, but hasn 't come yet. When the Bible and preaching the gospel is forbidden worldwide, that will be the famine of the word.

I think the famine is here. When I compare the ministered word I heard when I was a boy and the respect I saw then compared to the watered down sermons and lack of reverence now, I see the famine of the Holy Spirit and his grace. I can always get a sense of how it was before the famine by reading sermons from the Puritans.

I think we have been in this famine for a very long time
It started with the printed word and it's interpertation. And
Will ,,, get worse as this age continues.

The scripture says GOD sends the famine...THE FAMine is NOT WANTING TO KNOW or HEAR what God's Word teaches...especially in times of prosperity,AS TODAY.

These days are definitely here. All these new versions of the Bible are causing so much confusion which is not of God.(1Cor 14:33). If the King James Bible is God's inspired perfect word, which it is, why change it?

 

Harold Robinson's comment on 2010-12-21 21:08:04:

I think the days are here. I went in search of a nice King James Version study Bible the other day for my daughter for a Christmas present. I spent a good part of the day, because most stores, even Christian bood stores have filled their shelves with every other version known to man.
