The Plumb Line in the Church

Jun 20, 2021    Grayson Gilbert

Amos is caught up in three visions of judgment against the Israelites. The first two visions are of a potential judgment to come, which due to the prayers of the righteous prophet, will not come to pass. In the third vision, Israel is measured against the plumb line, which is the Law of God, and revealed to be utterly crooked. As a result, she must face judgment, and the prophet falls silent before the face of God. Much like in the days of Amos, the church is being measured by the Word of God. The question remains: will she stand the test of scrutiny and measure up to the plumb line?
