Prophet Summary: Amos 5-6

by PastorMinton on November 28th, 2016

A week late, but hopefully not a dollar short.

PROPHET SUMMARY

AMOS 5-6

In chapter 5, God laments over Israel’s fallenness. Israel was God’s virgin bride who has fallen from His grace because of her immorality with the Baals and the Asteroth. She is unable to rise from the ashes she has brought upon herself. God repeats His admonition to “Seek Him and live.” He mentions several of the places where the Israelites might seek Him, but He will not be there because He has left those places. This chapter is a foreshadowing of John 4 as God desires people to worship Him in spirit and truth (John 4:24).

Chapter 6 moves from the national lamentations and woes to personal lamentations. Those who are complacent because of their placement in God’s people. But people are not guaranteed Heaven simply because they are on a congregation’s roster. People are guaranteed Heaven through faith in Christ. Those who do not exercise their faith will face issues and tribulations like ancient Israel.

Read at least Amos 5-6 at least once this week.
