The Prophesied Food Shortages: Kept Alive in the Famine (It’s Time to Take God for His Word)

“Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine,” (Psalm 33:18-19).

For some time, I’ve been seeing believers prophesying food shortages and both believers and unbelievers covering prepper topics on how to prepare for it. Food shortages intentionally caused by the wicked no less.

This could cause fear in many, but the Word of God is TRUE no matter what the wicked do.

Not everyone has the budget or ability to prep and/or store up a year’s worth of food. I can think of a few widows with fatherless children vaccine injured with autism who fall into that category. Widows who the mainstream church has failed many times over the years by refusing to do home visits to pray for them and their children because they were homebound and couldn’t attend church. Their reason in almost every case? “We don’t have anyone to do that.” These are the last of the last days indeed where the love of many has grown ice cold!

It’s time for every believer to know the Word of God for themselves and take Him for it by FAITH, unshaken by what is seen!

These are just a few of many posts I’ve seen lately on the matter…

Prophesying what is written instead…Not magnifying the works of the evil one…

“Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in His mercy, to deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine,” (Psalm 33:18-19).

“They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied,” (Psalm 37:19).

“For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers; But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil,” (1 Peter 3:12).

“But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil,” (Proverbs 1:33).

Who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners. The Lord opens the eyes of the blind; The Lord raises those who are bowed down; The Lord loves the righteous. The Lord watches over the strangers; He relieves the fatherless and widow; But the way of the wicked He turns upside down,” (Psalm 146:7-9).

Prophesying regarding the wicked in the earth seeking our destruction…

“But You, O God, shall bring them down to the pit of destruction; Bloodthirsty and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; But I will trust in You,” (Psalm 55:23).

“They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down; They have dug a pit before me; Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen. Selah,” (Psalm 57:6).

“But they [the wicked] lie in wait for their own blood, they lurk secretly for their own lives. So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; It takes away the life of its owners,” (Proverbs 1:18-19).

1 Kings 17:8-16 – Supernatural Provision for Widow, her son, and Elijah the Prophet

8 Then the word of the Lord came to him, saying, 9 “Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. See, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you.” 10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. And when he came to the gate of the city, indeed a widow was there gathering sticks. And he called to her and said, “Please bring me a little water in a cup, that I may drink.” 11 And as she was going to get it, he called to her and said, “Please bring me a morsel of bread in your hand.”

12 So she said, “As the Lord your God lives, I do not have bread, only a handful of flour in a bin, and a little oil in a jar; and see, I am gathering a couple of sticks that I may go in and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die.”

13 And Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go and do as you have said, but make me a small cake from it first, and bring it to me; and afterward make some for yourself and your son. 14 For thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘The bin of flour shall not be used up, nor shall the jar of oil run dry, until the day the Lord sends rain on the earth.’ ”

15 So she went away and did according to the word of Elijah; and she and he and her household ate for many days. 16 The bin of flour was not used up, nor did the jar of oil run dry, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke by Elijah.

Christ the Lord redeemed us from the curse of the law to make us sons and daughters

But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. ~ Galatians 4:4-5

It’s GOOD NEWS indeed that we are no longer under the curse of the law for Jesus became a curse FOR us, “performing” all things perfectly, so that we may be righteous in Him. (May because we can either accept Jesus as Lord and Savior or reject Him as Lord and Savior by our own free will).

2 Corinthians 3:4-10

The Spirit, Not the Letter

And we have such trust through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, NOT of the letter [of the law] but of the Spirit; for the letter [of the law] kills, but the Spirit gives life.

Glory of the New Covenant

But if the ministry of death [the law], written and engraved on stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of the glory of his countenance, which glory was passing away, how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious?

For if the ministry of condemnation [the law] had glory, the ministry of righteousness [in Christ] exceeds much more in glory. For even what was made glorious [the law] had no glory in this respect, because of the glory that excels.

The Lord tells us the law was glorious, BUT in comparison to what Jesus accomplished FOR us through His death and resurrection under this NEW and BETTER covenant (Hebrews 8:6), the law doesn’t even come close to what we may now partake of in Christ!

To try and compare ourselves to those living under the law is such an insult to our Lord Jesus Christ who paid for all our sins – past, present, and future – as well as bore and took ALL our sickness and disease.

We are no longer partakers of the “ministry of death” but of the Spirit and righteousness in Christ.

We are…

Joint-heirs with Jesus Christ!

Sons and daughters of the King!

A royal priesthood!

The Temple of the Most High God!

Seated in heavenly places with authority over ALL the power of the enemy!

Saved, sanctified, healed, and delivered! Hallelujah!

Galatians 3:13

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse FOR us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”).

Psalm 107:2

“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.”

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for saving us in every way. For becoming our Most Holy Ransom. You are worthy to receive all blessing and glory and honor and power and praise, forever and ever, amen!

Faith, Jesus

For Thine is the Kingdom!

“Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom.” ~ Psalm 45:6

“O dead churches, wake up! O Christ, descend! Scarred head, take your crown! Bruised hands, take Your scepter! Wounded feet, take Your throne! “For Thine is the kingdom” (Matthew 6:13).” ~ Thomas DeWitt Talmage (1832-1902)

As joint heirs with Jesus Christ, we can wield a sceptor of righteousness in His name to destroy the works of the devil in our lives, cities, and nations.

“You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet,”
(Psalm 8:6).

BAM! So powerful that God in His sovereignty chose to give US dominion [sovereignty, governance, control, ruling authority] over the works of His hands as well as put ALL things under our feet. Thus making US responsible to co-labor with Him in faith to see the changes we long for come to pass.

We are not called to be passive!

We are believers NOT beggars!

Ours is an active partnership with God the Father through Jesus Christ that His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

The church needs to wake up, open up their mouths, and speak His Word into our lives and everything concerning it. We need “tell it like it is” children of God BOLDLY exposing evil and calling things as God sees them without concern of who’ll be offended for ignorance of our inheritance in Christ and HIS truth are causing many to perish!

Like he said above: Churches, WAKE UP!
