12.16.2018 – Old Testament: Amos 8.14
To read the Bible in a year, read Amos 7–9 on December 16, In the year of our Lord Christ 2018
By Don Ruhl
Israel had not just fallen away during the days of Amos, but they turned to another god, swearing by that god. However, it did not help them:
Those who swear by the sin of Samaria,
“‘As your god lives, O Dan!’
And, ‘As the way of Beersheba lives!’
They shall fall and never rise again.”
If those had been true gods to whom Israel turned, those gods would have been able to deliver Israel from Jehovah God, but they failed because they were dead and false gods.
Let us learn from Israel that we can only build our lives and the life of our nation on the one and true living God.
