Return to Me

The Old Testament Book of Amos has a severe warning for God’s people today. In Amos’ day, as in ours, the rule of law was despised; the nation’s leaders were not only contributing to the breakdown of law and order, they were causing it, and the standards of morality were so low the people openly practiced all kinds of sexual sins. The prophet, Amos stood in the street of Israel and proclaimed, “Repent, and return unto God, or prepare to receive the just judgment of God.” Amos might well have been standing in the streets of America, for we are on the precipice of God’s judgment, and in many ways, we are already there.
