04/15 Amos 8:2-3
2 “What do you see, Amos?” he asked. I replied, “A basket full of ripe fruit.” Then the LORD said, “Like this fruit, Israel is ripe for punishment! I will not delay their punishment again. 3 In that day the singing in the Temple will turn to wailing. Dead bodies will be scattered everywhere. They will be carried out of the city in silence. I, the Sovereign LORD, have spoken!”
People talk about who God is and how God does and refute the idea of punishment. There is punishment and it is coming when Jesus comes back. He is coming back in judgment. Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord.
