Amos 4 “Yet you have not returned to Me, declares the Lord.”

This Chapter in Amos is only 13 verses long, but within it God’s ominous indictment is repeated 5 times, “Yet you have not returned to Me.” Here Amos confronts the rulers of Israel with their wicked and unjust ways…pointing out both social & religious sins of the people and calling them to repentance. He reviews what God has done in the past as warnings for their rebellion…famine, blight, plagues, & military defeats…but still the people refuse to turn back to God…so now God’s judgment must follow and His punishment would surely take place. Even despite God’s repeated mercy the people remained ungrateful & unrepentant…and so Amos ended the Chapter with this outright chilling phrase, “Prepare to meet your God, O Israel.”
