Posted on January 20, by Claude Mariottini After the Lord called Amos to leave his flock and become a prophet to the people living in the Northern Kingdom, he received five visions announcing the judgment that was coming upon Israel.

In this vision, the punishment coming upon Israel was much greater than the punishment announced in the first vision.
The fire was devouring the great deep, causing the rivers and streams to dry up. Because of the drought, the flames spread throughout the land and the land was consumed.
Israel was under divine judgment and it deserved to suffer the dreadful consequences of its sin against God. The vision of the coming disaster prompted Amos to intercede once again on behalf of the nation.
His plea was the same as before: In the first intercession on behalf of Israel, Amos prayed: In his second prayer for Israel, Amos only said: Hans Walter Wolff wrote: Faced with the severity of the punishment, Amos did not ask for forgiveness, as he had done before.
Rather, he can only ask God to refrain from sending this dreadful punishment. Since forgiveness was not granted in his first appeal, Amos can only call on God to be merciful to his people and desist from sending the devastating fire.
This use of the special name of God was an affirmation or a guarantee that the judgment would not happen. The repentance of God allowed God to show clemency and avert the punishment he had announced against the nation.
Israel was deserving of the punishment God intended to bring upon the nation. The holy nature of God does not tolerate sin. God had decided to judge his people for their many sins and violations of the covenant.
The only reason the punishment did not materialize was because Amos interceded for the people and asked God to be merciful. In the end God heard the prayer of his prophet, turned his wrath against Israel into mercy in order to demonstrate his great love for Israel.
When the Bible says that God repents, the Bible means that God relents or changes his mind when dealing with human beings. So, once again Amos intervened on behalf of Israel and once again the Lord repented and canceled the judgment.
The repentance of God is not mere figurative language, as some have asserted. But the decision was only temporary. The decision to pardon Israel and lift the judgment permanently would depend on the people and their willingness to repent and change their evil ways.
God was willing to give Israel another opportunity to turn from their disobedience and wickedness. In order for the judgment to be lifted, the people must be willing to repent from their rebellion and from their violation of the demands of the covenant. If Israel failed to turn from their wickedness, God would reinstate his decision to bring the judgment upon the people and Israel would suffer the consequences of its disobedience.
Israel did not repent and the judgment against the nation was reinstated.欧美组合歌手列表,一听音乐网. His newest album, The Reverend Shawn Amos Loves You, was released last October. His father, Wally Amos, was a former Hollywood talent agent who had become a celebrity by creating Famous Amos.
