I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning; yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord.
Therefore thus will I do to you, o Israel; because I will do this for you, prepare to meet your God, o Israel.
For behold, He who forms mountains, and creates the wind, who declares to man what his thought is, and makes the morning darkness, who trends the high places of the earth – the Lord God of hosts is His name. Amos 4:11-13.
Where do you prefer to end up – heaven? Then you must pay the price by obeying the word of God – be a firebrand.
