Amos 8:12 (Berean Study Bible)


People will stagger from sea to sea and roam from north to east, seeking the word of the Lord, but they will not find it.


Divinity schools hand out D. Div and PhD to pastors and missionaries, most of whom have either not received the Holy Spirit or baptized in Him, hoping that they will be well versed in the word of God. Scholars, philosophers and atheists roam the corners of the globe to find enlightenment and understanding. We're even finding Christians turning to eastern religions like Hinduism, Buddhism and so on hoping to broaden their horizons. All such people need to realize that they can spin their wheels all they want but will never know the Almighty until they come to the historic "Jesus of Nazareth" in repentance and childlike faith. All the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. Until we realize that, the Holy Spirit will never lead us into all the truth, which is Christ Himself.
