Amos 2: Redeemer's Remorse

22 views

Published on

God delivered Israel with a mighty hand. However, there came a time when the Northern Kingdom of Israel forgot God. They forgot that he led them out of Egypt. They forgot that he drove giants out of their way and enabled them to enter the Promised Land. They forgot and became a sinful nation that silenced God's prophets and those committed to following Him, even leading them astray. They drove God to "Redeemer's Remorse" leading God to regret having acted on their behalf. God's strong judgment reminds us of the importance of living justly and uprightly.
