MORNINGTIME 2192
 
But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you THERE SHOULD BE MOCKERS in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. Jude 1:17-19. There is a famine of The Word in the land, and it's getting worse by the day. The Gospel, the Words of Christ, are drying up in churches, and  a hunger for the Word is growing cold, and a simple understanding of The Word is not much better. If you've never understood The Word, then if you don't have the word, it's very easy to not miss the word. And without The Word,   THERE IS NO CHURCH. ALL you have is a social club getting together on Sundays to worship a god of your own making. Without The Word, you have no church discipline, no real values, no biblical theology, and not even good words  to the songs you sing trying to honor the Lord. If you don't have The Word of God as the Backbone to your church, you have no backbone to stand against the enemy with. If you have No Word, you have no explanation of who the enemy is and how he operates. So how do you get to the place of having a "famine" of The Word in your church? It's easy. If there is no real Love for The Word, it gets left behind and no one even notices. Other things, other study material, other programs, other teaching theologies take the place of "The Word". Oh yes, the occasional verse or two is thrown in to try to keep it proper sounding, but there is no real discussion of the true meaning of the verses and how they may apply to us today. The verses even feel out of place when compared to the subject being taught. During a famine, a cookie tastes great, but it had no "strength" to keep you going.  Cotton Candy preaching sounds good when you hear it, but it's forgotten before you get out the door. ONLY CHRIST AND HIS WORD TRULY SATISFY. Seek Christ, and, Be Blessed.
