For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”

The book of Amos is a scathing rebuke against all unrighteousness. God is calling His people to remember who He is and repent, throwing themselves on His mercy. In the middle of chapter five, the Lord turns Amos’s attention to “The Day of the Lord”. The Day of the Lord is a common theme throughout the Old and New Testaments. It is described as the time when God says enough is enough; the time for final judgment has arrived. The Son of Man will return to the earth. This time, He will not be coming as the Suffering Servant, in lowliness and humility allowing Himself to be mocked and spit upon. Rather, this time, He will come in power and glory and wrath and judgment. He will usher in the Kingdom of God in its fullness. All attacks upon it will come to an end. Christ will rule and reign in absolute power and authority. Even though believers will face some judgment, for them the Day of the Lord will ultimately be a day of joy and victory. Horrifyingly, to unbelievers the Day of the Lord will be a day of judgment, punishment, and terror that will never end.
