The seventh chapter of Micah contains one of the most powerful
messages on the new covenant ever preached. In this incredible
sermon, Micah is speaking to natural Israel—yet he is also
speaking to the church of Jesus Christ in these last days. He
begins his sermon with a heartbroken cry—one that is still being
heard from spiritually starved believers around the world today:
“Woe is me! . . . There is no cluster to eat” (Micah 7:1).

Micah is describing the effect of a famine in Israel—a famine of
food and of God’s Word. It echoes the words of an earlier prophecy
by Amos where the Lord says: “Behold, the days are coming . . .
that I will send a famine on the land, not a famine of bread, nor a
thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord. They shall . . .
run to and fro, seeking the word of the Lord, but shall not find it”
(Amos 8:11–12).

It was harvest time in Israel and the vineyards should have been
bursting with fruit, but there were no clusters hanging from the
vines. Micah watched as people went into the vineyards looking
for fruit to pick and finding none. In his prophetic eye, Micah saw
multitudes in the last days running from place to place, seeking
to hear a true word from God. He envisioned believers scurrying
from church to church, from revival to revival, from nation to nation—
all seeking to satisfy a hunger and thirst for something to nourish
their souls. The cry is still heard, “Woe is me—there is no cluster!”

There is a great famine in the land. Yet, in spite of multitudes
running about looking for spiritual food, those who truly desire
God’s Word comprise only a remnant (see Micah 7:14, 18). This
is certainly as true today as it was in ancient Israel. Few Christians
today truly hunger to hear the pure word of the Lord. Instead, the
majority fatten themselves on Sodom’s apples, feeding on the
straw of perverted gospels.
