The Cause of Spiritual Desolation. A Commentary on Amos 8:11

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.

– Amos 8:11

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

This verse reminds me of that at the end of the Age of Law, the Lord Jesus who became flesh did a new and improved work outside of the temple. He ended the Age of Law and began the Age of Grace. The Holy Spirit also transferred the work to the Age of Grace, and then the temple became desolate. Those who held to Jehovah God’s work but not accepted the Lord Jesus’ work all fall into the darkness, having no path to take. And people who didn’t accept the new work of God were detested, rejected and eliminated by Him, and were devoid of the work of the Holy Spirit. They couldn’t gain God’s shepherding and supply, feeling thirsty in the spirit. This just fulfilled God’s word, “The way of life is not something that can be possessed by just anyone, nor is it easily obtainable by all. That is because life can only come from God, which is to say, only God Himself possesses the substance of life, there is no way of life without God Himself, and so only God is the source of life, and the ever-flowing wellspring of living water of life.” God is the source of life for all things. God’s word is the truth, the way, and the life. Only if we follow God’s footsteps, listen to His utterances today, and receive the supply of the living water of life can we have a way forward.
