This is Daniel Whyte III president of Gospel Light Society International with The Scripture & The Sense Podcast #416, where I read the Word of God and give the sense of it based on an authoritative commentary source such as the Bible Knowledge Commentary or Matthew Henry Commentary. This podcast is based upon Nehemiah 8:8 where it says Ezra and the Levites “read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading.” The aim of this podcast is that through the simple reading of the Word of God and the giving of the sense of it, the church would be revived and the world would be awakened.
Today we are reading Amos 1:14-15.
14 But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rab-bah, and it shall devour the palaces thereof, with shouting in the day of battle, with a tempest in the day of the whirlwind:
15 And their king shall go into captivity, he and his princes together, saith the Lord.
That was Amos 1:14-15. Now here is the sense of it.
The Bible Knowledge Commentary reads:
Because of this heartlessness God would set fire to the walls of Rab-bah, Am-mon’s capital city. Amid the engulfing flames the inhabitants would hear the war cries of the attackers as they fell on their victims. Violent winds, symbolizing God’s own awesome power, would lash at the city. And the enemy would take both king and officials into exile. This judgment was fulfilled through the As-sy-ri-an conquest under Tig-lath-Pi-le-ser III in 734 b.c.
Thank you for listening to the Scripture & The Sense Podcast. Remember to read the Word of God each and every day and pray without ceasing to God for wisdom to understand it and apply it to your life. Most importantly, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved. Please stay tuned for a complete presentation of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ so that you can get your soul saved from Hell to that wonderful place called Heaven when you die. May God bless you and keep you is my prayer.
