Sabbath: Lord of All Nations

Read for This Week’s StudyAmos 1-2Isaiah 58Luke 12:47-481 Kings 8:37-40Amos 4:12-13, Obadiah.

gless04 (1)Memory Text: “A Lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken! Who can but prophesy?” (Amos 3:8, NKJV).

Key Thought: Acts of inhumanity are sins against God and will be judged accordingly. lion in Scripture often represents the king of the animal world. His appearance evokes irresistible strength and majesty as well as ferocity and destructive power. Even when not actively hunting, the lion can be heard, its roar audible for miles. Amos, a shepherd, was sent to the Israelites to warn them that he had heard a lion roar—and the lion was none other than their Lord! Moved by the Holy Spirit, the prophet Amos compared God’s way of speaking to the nations, as well as to His special people, with the roaring of a lion (see Amos 1:2).

Amos was called to prophesy to the nations who committed crimes against humanity. He also was sent to a society where a privileged and religious people lived in peace and prosperity. Yet, this same people oppressed the poor and allowed for dishonest business and bribery in court. This week we will listen to what the Lord has to say about these despicable actions.

Study this week’s lesson to prepare for Sabbath, April 27.

  1. Here we see God who warns his people to give heed what is said in Isa.58 or He will come to devoir like Lion. But Jesus is comed like Lion not to kill us but save us and wage war against sin and death.

  2. Just as God sent Amos to the children of Israel to warn them against inhumility act upon the less privileged and dishonest act, the same He (God) sent His anointed ones, the Pastors, evangelist etc to us to warns us about our ways of life activities that displeases God and to lead us to Him (God), in order to abscond the impending wrath of God. As we study this lesson, may we examine and search ourselves and ascertain the ways we have gone astray from God and return to Him with total repentance. May God bless us as we heed to His words in Jesus Name, AMEN!
