Read the sermon text: Amos 1-9

Read the sermon summary: This Sunday we will consider a text which describes a time of great prosperity for Israel and yet also a time of great poverty. Under King Jeroboam, Israel had outward success, but inwardly they had come to spiritual ruin. The people committed sins of idolatry, oppressed the poor, abused the righteous, and stopped the mouths of the prophets. In this context, the Lord called humble Amos to boldly proclaim his judgment against Israel. Amos speaks words and sees visions of impending doom. Even the strongest and fastest warriors will not be able to escape God’s wrath. God has been faithful, however, and he would be faithful, both to execute justice and to save a remnant from destruction. As we will see, this remnant is those who seek the Lord, who do justice and righteousness, and who await his messianic king, the tabernacle of David, who will come to judge the nations and restore the fortunes of his people.
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
Holy Holy Holy (Nicaea)
Holy holy holy
Lord God Almighty
Early in the morning
Our song shall rise to Thee
Holy holy holy
Merciful and mighty
God in three persons
Blessed Trinity
Holy holy holy
All the saints adore Thee
Casting down their golden crowns
Around the glassy sea
Cherubim and seraphim
Falling down before Thee
Which wert and art
And evermore shalt be
Holy holy holy
Though the darkness hide Thee
Though the eye of sinful man
Thy glory may not see
Only Thou art holy
There is none beside Thee
Perfect in power
In love and purity

Holy holy holy
Lord God Almighty
All Thy works shall praise Thy name
In earth and sky and sea
Holy holy holy
Merciful and mighty
God in three persons
Blessed Trinity
