What Every Non-Christian Must Know (Amos 3:11-15)

25 May

Are you worshipping a god other than the God of the Bible? So did the Israelites. In Amos 3:11-15 God tells them what the result of that decision is:

God will destroy

God constantly says “I will” (v13-14). He will punish you. You can’t run from him, you can’t withstand his power, you can’t defeat him. Choose to go against him and your destined to defeat.

God will destroy your strongholds

The Israelites felt strong in their land and defences, and God destroyed these things (v11). Modern people rest in the security of their home, wealth and job. Yet we all know these can disappear far too easily and they will definitely disappear on the day of judgement.

God will destroy all you love

Yahweh destroyed what the Israelites loved. He destroyed their places of worship (v14) and he destroyed their material possessions (v13, 15). All you enjoy on Earth is destined for destruction, your false gods and all your possessions.

God will accept Jesus in your place

How can you escape this fate? Trust in Jesus.

Jesus was punished on a cross in place of all who trust in him. If you trust him your punishment will fall on him. He offers freedom from punishment for nothing. Not only that, he gives you eternal perfect life with him. What a deal!

Trust in your gods and everything you love will be destroyed.

Trust in Jesus and everything you need will be yours.

It’s got to be the easiest decision you’ve ever made.
