In our series through some of the OT we are seeing the face of Christ explicitly in the text. Amos is no different, as the prophet speaks to Israel, he uproots some wild presumptions, that because they are “His” people, they would be exempt from any consequences of their sin. Amos has another thought on the matter. Through it all though, even though God judges the “nation”, He also saves the remnant, those who would be saved in Christ alone. To the praise of His glorious grace. Be prepared to meet your God!
For many Christians, God is certainly a merciful God but also a terrifying reality. What does the bible say about how the believer should fear God? After all, the scripture teaches that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom.” Take some time to follow the word through this critical and beautiful doctrine.
