Amos 9 – Stop Running
A people with nowhere to hide
– Amos’ vision strips away any thought of escaping the judgment to come.
A God of fierce judgment
“I will keep my eye on them
for harm and not for good.”
– Israel does not understand the power of God
A God who gives hope in darkness
– The last word: abundance and blessing
– “Never to be uprooted”, a certain and solid hope
For Us Today
1. What are our expectations of blessing and judgment?
2. Do we believe God reigns?
3. What do we want for our neighbours?
4. Do we have a solid hope?
