Amos – Chapter 2: Judgment on Israel

Amos started with a bang, and by a bang, I mean a literal bang with God raining fire and destruction upon many groups of people. Give the title of this chapter, I highly doubt that destruction stops.

“I will send fire on Moab  that will consume the fortresses of Kerioth. Moab will go down in great tumult amid war cries and the blast of the trumpet.” – Amos 2:2

Yep, God is still killing.

“Father and son use the same girl and so profane my holy name.” – Amos 2:7

Admittedly this is a bit weird, but if all three parties consent, who is to say this is a sin? Certainly not the god of the Bible who kills and kills and kills.

“I brought you up out of Egypt  and led you forty years in the wilderness  to give you the land of the Amorites.” – Amos 2:10

The Egyptians treated the Israelites badly only after God hardened the Egyptians’ hearts.

“‘Even the bravest warriors will flee naked on that day,’” declares the Lord.” – Amos 2:16

God is raining down fire while the people flee naked. But remember, God loves you.

Did we learn anything new? Nope! God is still killing and killing and killing.
