This blog used to constantly rip on stuff. I have left off that path for a couple years now. I am really struggling right now though! I recently read a book, well, 3/4ths of a book, that sent my blood pressure through the roof.
However, instead of bashing that book, I will talk about a good book–the Book of Amos, not to be confused with The Book of Eli. The Book of Amos is in the Bible. Old Testament.
One verse that caught my eye was Amos 4:12. The context is God levelling judgment on Israel for their rebellion, He rescued them from judgment like Sodom got, yet they remained rebellious, and then says:
“Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.”
There is a severity and a beauty in that statement. I love God. I do. I love His emotion-filled expressions. I love this.
At the same time, what a way to put a guy in His place. Are you prepared to meet your God?!
