Study of Amos
The LORD keeps His promise, and we get to rest in the King and the benefits of His Kingdom.
Coming face to face with the sobering clarity of the LORD’s judgement.
God’s patient restraint does end, and His judgement will come.
Faithfulness to the LORD will always be met with the question, “Who’s in charge?”
The outcome of living by any standard other than the LORD’s Word is just judgement.
We ought to always remember that pride is actually opposition to the LORD Himself.
The LORD holds His people accountable for being unaware of the reality around them.
Doing the ‘right things’ does not equal being right.
Are we listening to the clear wisdom of Biblical lamentation?
Be watchful to escape the snares of being self-centered — self-absorption, self-deception; self-reliance. For ignoring God’s disciplinary acts and His calls to repentance leads to a final sentence of disaster.
