1. Israel Taken Into Captivity
This was the falfllment of that
which Amos had predicted in the days
of ,leroboam 1, at a time when the
nation was at the height of its pros
perity. The northern kingdom was
ruled by .19 kings, all of whom were
wicked. Their wickedness was not be
cause of lack of information or op
portunity, but in spite of it. God
promised the first king His blessing
if lie would be loyal to Him. Jero
boam departed from God and the
apostasy thus begun continued down
ward to the end. In the reign of
loshen, the last king, the king of
Assyria came and besieged Samnaria
and carried the children of Israel cup
tive to Assyria, from which they never
1i. The Sins Which Caused Their
Doom (vv. 7-18).
1. Conformed- to the ways of the
h'athen (vy. 7-9). God had coim
lan(le(d them not to follow in the
ways of the heathen, but these
Israelites, instead Of maintaining lives
of separation, secetly (lid that which
was displeasing to .God. Secret sins
Just as surely as open sins hinlg run:
for all things are naked and open to
Him with whom we have to do. One
may maintain his reputation before
men while practicing sins, but ruin
will sooner or later overtake in.
Even though God had cast out the
heathen for practicing these sns, the
Israelites followed in their ways. God
demands separation (11 Cor. 6:17).
2. Served idols (vv. 10-12). They not
only compromised by "walking in the
statutes of the heathen," but worshiped
their gods. It was not a long step
from following In the statutes of the
heathen to worshiping their gods.
Before they worshiped Idols they casA
off the true God. Idolatry came in
because the race did not wish to re
tain God in its affection (Romi. 1:21
23). People today are worshiping
idols because they have first cast off
the authority of the living God. Man
is a worshipful being. Wln he
ceases to worship the true God, lie
worships other gods. Neutral ground
8. They were rebellious (vv. 13
15). God by his prophet had. said
unto them "Turn ye from your evil
ways and keep my commandments,"
hut they stubbornly refused His
testimnony, even rejected Ils statuites.
God, in love, tried to save them. He
sent some of the noblest and best
prophets who ever spoke to man to
persuade them to turn from their
sins, such as Elijah and Elisha, but
they hardened their necks and plunged
deceper Into wickedness.
4. Caused their sonis and daughters
to pass through the fire (v. 17). This
was the dreadful Moloch worship-tie
most cruel rite of heathen worship.
It was (done by kindling a fire in a
hiollowv metal image until its arms were
redl hot and placing live children
therein to he burned to death.
5. liesortedl to magical practices
(v. 17). When' faith in the true God
Vanes, men always turn to the magical
arts. In this wvay they sold1 them
selves to evil In the sight of the Lord
to provoke Him to anger.
Iii. Judgment Fails (v. 1S).
At this stage of the drama the cur
tain falls. God could not be inactive
1. God was very angry. God's anger
is not raving fury, but the revulsion
of His holy nature against sin. Sin
cannot exist in His presence. His
wrath must strike. Though Hie waits
long, the debt must be paid and alwvays
with compounid interest. Th'lere is only
one way to escape God's wrath ; that
Is, to turn from sin.
2. Removed them out of is sight.
Thme land of Palestine is regardIed as
the land of God's sight ; that is. the
place of His manIfested presence.
Their national ldentity was blotted
out forever. These people are still
scattered among the nations, and as a
separate nation doubtless they will
never return to their landl. The judg
meat was severe. bumt not more so
than the sins merited. God had waited
long. The despising of ils grace
must eventually work ruin. WVhat
judlgment must fall upon the people
today who reject ils grace and mercy I
