Amos 2 - NIV

1 This is what the Lord says:

“For three sins of Moab,
even for four, I will not relent.
Because he burned to ashes
the bones of Edom’s king,

2 I will send fire on Moab
that will consume the fortresses of Kerioth.[a]
Moab will go down in great tumult
amid war cries and the blast of the trumpet.

3 I will destroy her ruler
and kill all her officials with him,”
says the Lord.

4 This is what the Lord says:

“For three sins of Judah,
even for four, I will not relent.
Because they have rejected the law of the Lord
and have not kept his decrees,
because they have been led astray by false gods,[b]
the gods[c] their ancestors followed,

5 I will send fire on Judah
that will consume the fortresses of Jerusalem.”

Judgment on Israel

6 This is what the Lord says:

“For three sins of Israel,
even for four, I will not relent.
They sell the innocent for silver,
and the needy for a pair of sandals.

7 They trample on the heads of the poor
as on the dust of the ground
and deny justice to the oppressed.
Father and son use the same girl
and so profane my holy name.

8 They lie down beside every altar
on garments taken in pledge.
In the house of their god
they drink wine taken as fines.

9

“Yet I destroyed the Amorites before them,
though they were tall as the cedars
and strong as the oaks.
I destroyed their fruit above
and their roots below.

10 I brought you up out of Egypt
and led you forty years in the wilderness
to give you the land of the Amorites.

11

“I also raised up prophets from among your children
and Nazirites from among your youths.
Is this not true, people of Israel?”
declares the Lord.

12 “But you made the Nazirites drink wine
and commanded the prophets not to prophesy.

13

“Now then, I will crush you
as a cart crushes when loaded with grain.

14 The swift will not escape,
the strong will not muster their strength,
and the warrior will not save his life.

15 The archer will not stand his ground,
the fleet-footed soldier will not get away,
and the horseman will not save his life.

16 Even the bravest warriors
will flee naked on that day,”
declares the Lord.

GOD'S perspective on cremation of human bodies
Shared by: James Linders on Jun, 2015
Summary: With THIS sermon I DON'T argue the fact that ALL human remains will eventually turn into dust. I however question modern opinion on the issue in relation to Biblical view. What is GOD'S view on cremation? Did HE approve of it? Is it right or wrong?
