MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 20 August 2019
Our God is a righteous judge. He is very loving and compassionate. His patience endureth for long. As loving as He is, He never condones evils.
Amos was an 8th century B.C. prophet, a contemporary of Isaiah and Micah in Judah and Jonah and Hosea in Israel. He was a herdsman and gatherer of sycamore fruit. He was a native of Tekoa, a village in Judah. He was not a prophet but God gave him a prophetic vision and ministry concerning rebellious Israel.
In today’s reading, Amos was a man filled with burden and he brought to light without mincing words his errands for both Israel and the surrounding nations. He was called to deliver a message of judgment to Israel and to give them a final warning. He began by pronouncing judgment on seven neighbouring nations.
The book of Amos is an eye opener to the various stages in the religious development of mankind. It is a protest of a single person as led by the Spirit of God to reveal the evil practices and manifestation of people living in that era. It reveals God’s hatred for sin of mistreating other human beings. God is a righteous judge. He will surely judge every violent and inhuman practices done against other fellow beings.

Despite the fact that Israel had received the goodness and kindness of God, they turned against His law and covenants and forgot all He had done for them. The judgment of God, therefore, was to enable Israel to appreciate her guilt and bear the reproach of God’s righteous judgment. This is to assure us that there is One who judges the affairs of men on earth. Satan’s reign on earth shall surely come to an end. It is only the kingdom of Christ that shall abide forever and ever.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To escape God’s imminent judgment, you must approach Him in repentance.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Job 37-42
