Amos 5: Out of the Frying Pan and into the Fire

33 views

Published on

There is an old saying, "Out of the Frying Pan and Into the Fire. In this message on Amos 5:18-27, we will see that the Northern Kingdom of Israel was longing for the "Day of the LORD". They were convinced that God would deliver them from all their enemies on this great day. What they failed to realize was that they were on the wrong side of God's Day. It is a Great and Terrible Day, and they were on the terrible side of God's wrath. God has established a Day of Christ. It is a great day for the people of God, a day we can experience when we turn from our sin and find forgiveness and a satisfying of God's wrath. Don't get caught on the Terrible Side of human history.
