“Get dressed and lament, you priests!
Wail, you who minister at the altar!
Come, spend the night in sackcloth, you servants of my God,
because no one brings grain offerings or drink offerings
to the temple of your God anymore.”
Joel prophesied of a time when it would no longer be possible to worship God because of the destruction he would send upon an idolatrous, immoral, and unjust people.
God has sent a famine of his word upon the land today, Amos 8.11. Worship is no longer possible. People are playing with religion. Let the remnant hear and obey his word!
