This is what the Lord says: “The people of Judah have sinned again and again, and I will not let them go unpunished! They have rejected the instruction of the Lord, refusing to obey his decrees. They have been led astray by the same lies that deceived their ancestors. So I will send down fire on Judah, and all the fortresses of Jerusalem will be destroyed.”
Amos 2:4-5 NLT
We should know that God will judge the sin of nations, but also will judge his people. God judges and punishes his people when he refuses to follow his instruction, when he is disobedient and goes after the lies of those around him. When God punishes his people broke their strengths, God demolishes any argument that his people built in order to avoid hearing his voice and obey him.
