The Sound of Silence
Jul 25, 2021 • Grayson Gilbert
Amos now comes to the fourth vision of his prophecy, which reveals that the Northern Kingdom of Israel is ripe for judgment because they are a profane generation. They have not only despised the Word of the Lord, but abused their own people in the most grotesque of ways. Thus, their fortunes shall be reversed and the Lord shall give them silence in return for their rejection of His prophets on the day of their calamity. Yet behind this reality lay a principle that demands the utmost sobriety of any generation: we think trite thoughts about the judgment of God, yet it is no small thing to be trifled with.
