The Dawn of a New Day

From Series: The Lion's Roar

Amos 9:1-15  (ID: 1374)

God judged the people in Amos’ day because they had grown careless and complacent, and their religion had become counterfeit. Alistair Begg notes that God’s purpose in judging people is not annihilation, but salvation – to weed out the fakes and safeguard the faithful. A new day is dawning for those who place their faith in Christ, and whose lives glorify God, when futility and desolation will be replaced by prosperity and joy.


The Destruction of Israel

1I saw the Lord standing beside1 the altar, and he said:

“Strike the capitals until the thresholds shake,

and shatter them on the heads of all the people;2

and those who are left of them I will kill with the sword;

not one of them shall flee away;

not one of them shall escape.
