Nowhere to Run, Nowhere to Hide

Amos now comes to the final word of judgment to be given and it is perhaps the most severe word because the Lord Himself tells the Israelites they have nowhere to run to and nowhere to hide. They cannot avoid judgment. The reason they cannot avoid God's wrath is rather simple. He sees all things, He controls all things, and He reveals all things for what they truly are, which inevitably means they are only fooling themselves. Make no mistake; the same God who judged Israel shall stand as Judge on the Last Day. The same will be said for those who are not in Christ and His penetrating gaze is upon them: you have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.
