Day of the Lord

The day of the LORD is the intervention of God in judgement where He is expected to restore people and bless them. Israelites thought that this day would be one of victory and rejoicing for them because their enemies would be destroyed. Amos tells them that when God acts in judgement, He will act against all the wicked, and Israel will be the first to suffer. There will be no way of escape, no place of safety, when God’s judgement falls (verse 18-20).
