Our Lord leaves to us of this Gospel Dispensation considerable latitude in the choice of means for serving His cause.
He exhorts us, however, to be as wise as serpents and as harmless as doves; and He promises us rewards in proportion as we exercise such carefulness in His service as He can especially bless and use. Those who use wisely the pounds and talents intrusted to them are to have proportionate rewards when the Kingdom of God's dear Son shall have been set up. Let us then, in the exercise of our liberty and in accord with the Master's injunction to be as wise as serpents, notice that the Prophet's message respecting unpleasant and direful matters, all of which were true, began in such a manner as to rivet the attention War Of The Damned - Amos The Ancient Prophet - The Collabos Vol.
4 (File his hearers. The Apostle Paul practised this same wisdom, and mentioned it subsequently to some whom he had brought to a knowledge of the Lord. He said, "Being crafty, I caught you with guile. That is, he presented the matter to them in the form that would be most attractive to their hearts. He presented nothing untrue, however.
Truth can be stated in a more or less palatable or unpalatable form. Another lesson in connection with the Prophet Amos' message is that his opponents rose up from amongst those who were professedly religious—the priests. And so it was with our Lord and the Apostles. The priests and the religious teachers of their day were the chief opponents of the Gospel in its truth and purity; and we must expect the same in our day.
The Truth, in proportion as it has been declared in its purity, has always roused opposition, and has always found its chief opposers amongst those who have "a form of godliness"—but generally amongst those who lack its power. Today's lesson is a part of the Prophet's pleading with the Israelites that they return to harmony with God and thus avert the calamities which must otherwise be expected. The history of that time shows that it was a very prosperous period, not only for Judah, but also for the ten-tribe kingdom.
The prosperity was of the earthly kind. Riches were accumulated. But these were in the hands of the great; and the Prophet proceeds to warn the rich that the poor were being unjustly dealt with. He intimates that it would be from this source that the trouble would ultimately come; that the only terms upon which they could hope to live as a nation would be by seeking the Lord. It would be in vain for them to seek help at Bethel or in Gilgal or in Beersheba, the centers of their religious institutions, which were corrupt.
These religious institutions would all go down in the trouble which the Prophet predicted. The Lord Himself must be sought with an honest heart; else He would cause destruction to break out like a fire to devour the House of Joseph.
The ten-tribe kingdom is here called the House of Joseph, because the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh were of preponderating influence in the nation; and these two tribes had sprung from Joseph.
Hence the fire breaking out in the House of Joseph meant the destruction which would come upon the ten-tribe kingdom unless they repented. The Prophet proceeds to particularize some of the wrongs on account of which they were in danger. Justice was not rendered in their War Of The Damned - Amos The Ancient Prophet - The Collabos Vol.
4 (File. Instead of the sweets of Justice, those who appealed to their courts, if they were poor, got wormwood—that is, bitterness, disappointment. The Prophet declares that righteousness was cast down to the earth; that equity was not a matter of primary consideration. He proceeds to point out that bribery was rife; that wealth, power and influence could accomplish almost anything. There must be a turning from this condition; and relief could come only from turning to the Lord.
Job Pointing to the group Pleiades in the constellation Taurus and to Orion, he would have his hearers see that the One whose assistance they needed was the One who was able to create the earth and the heavens also, the One who was able not only to gather the waters into the seas, War Of The Damned - Amos The Ancient Prophet - The Collabos Vol. 4 (File, but also to call the waters back from the seas to the clouds and to pour it down upon the earth again in its seasons.
