    1. “Sometimes a truth stings regardless of when you hear it. Reggie reminds us of this truth. “God punishes rebellion wherever He finds it.” Yes, that truth does sting Sara.

      We sure learned from these great lessons Pastor Reggie brought us from Amos, that God keeps His promises. And we also learned in this lesson in vs 2-4 a ‘principle’: “escape from the hand of God is impossible.”
      Pastor Reggie reminded us more than once of two important dates that God kept. One date was 722 BC when the nation of Israel, who had been given years and years to repent of their sins but would not, was destroyed by the Assyrians. And the other date God kept was 586 BC when the nation of Judah was destroyed by the Babylonians. Israel, we were told, thought they were God’s special people and would never be destroyed. They said, “Disaster will not overtake us.” But, as Sara pointed out, God punished their rebellion (as He does with all nations) and they could not escape.

      Pastor Reggie assured us, though, that just as God kept His promise through Amos’s prophetic words that destruction for sins would ensue, he also told us of another promise God kept. That ‘gracious’ promise to David came from 2 Samuel 7:16 and we were told to put a star by it. “And your house and your kingdom shall be established forever before you. Your throne shall be established forever.” Pastor Reggie reminded us that, “There is always a righteous remnant.” He said “the new/true Israel of God is the church.”

  1. I believe Pastor Reggie made it clear in this lesson…”there is no escaping /hiding from the Lord”. He referenced some Scripture over in the Book of Psalms:” Psalm 139:7-12 New International Version (NIV)

    7 Where can I go from your Spirit?
    Where can I flee from your presence?
    8 If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
    if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
    9 If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea,
    10 even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast.
    11 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me
    and the light become night around me,”
    12 even the darkness will not be dark to you;
    the night will shine like the day,
    for darkness is as light to you.”

    1. This Psalm Tammy references announcing you have no hiding place that the majestic eye of God cannot see and even penetrate the heart gives a little un-comfort at times. Yet, it makes me think on The comfort I often feel knowing , “He is my hiding place. for comfort and protection” (Ps 32:7)

      This bring me back to the one liner Pastor Reggie stung me with, “God punishes rebellion wherever He finds it.” How I like to sing, “home where the heart is.” Hopefully, for all that’s in the arms of God. Hiding under His wings.

      As Debi ended her take away from lesson, last line, He said “the new/true Israel of God is the church.” And, when we bag the rebellion and come home to the Father, we hear welcome home my child. The Church is where the gates of hell cannot prevail against it. (Matthew 16:18)Please as a gift to yourself find and read vs 19! WOW

      Pastor Reggie said and Gary and I stood to applaud him in agreement. We love the Book of Amos.
