According to the prophet Ezekiel, famine is a reproach, anytime, anywhere.  It is no honour to have no food when you are hungry, very hungry.  It is tough to have to ask ‘help’ to catch a bus to the next stop.  It is reproachful to watch your children cry for food and seem to mock your lack.  It is worse to have to beg the heathen for bread, especially if you had known abundance.  But the Lord says now to you, “And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen” (Ezekiel 36:30).  Amen.

According to the prophet, there is something called the “reproach of famine,” especially for the hungry believer “among the heathen” who mock with potent looks as if to say, “Where is your God?”  With the prophet, I declare the termination of the reproach of famine, for thus says the Lord, “I will MULTIPLY the fruit of the tree, and the INCREASE of the field,” and so take away from you that “reproach of famine.”  Amen.

A Spirit Force shall hereafter address the reproach.  If, as in Samaria, the proud and obstructive prince at the gate has to be trampled to death for bread to enter the land, Amen (2 Kings 7:17).
