Secular Weddings of the Millenials are rejected by God

Koot van Wyk


What about the contemporary trend to create a lodabar (Amos 6:13) “no Word” wedding thus, no pastor or preacher any longer as is done in South Korea even by Seventh-day Adventists? God lists this phenomenon to the visionary prophet of the End of Time (see Amos 5:24).

Their music removed all sacred worship and God and Christ from their lips and secular icon pop-culture is used with multimedia display and loudspeakers to drain the Holy Spirit out of the meeting. Photographers are standing all over taking pictures of the tragic event in beautiful display of white wedding hangovers from the true wedding-era. Amos saw all this and more, the Apostacy among the remnant (Andrews University Woman Ordination statement; all NAD participants in Woman Ordination inforcement of Culture over the Bible issues like gay-rights respect; Revelation drain of cardinal SDA truths the author of the guide for Sabbath-School in March 2019 who stepped out of the Bible into idiosyncracies according to Alberto Treiyer, and Jon Paulien with him as well; with the denial of vicarius filii dei in 2000 already; with others and their strange Edenic allegories of tabernacle symbolism in the garden of Eden to make Adam and Eve co-priests strengthening the right of Woman Ordination; an Apostacy slip thus strongly perceived since the death of Hasel in 1994 when some mocking the Adventist disappointment of 1844 and using Reformed Theology principles to do so). This phenomenon of Apostacy as Treiyer calls the 2019 Revelation Sabbath School Lesson, is predicted as a signal by Amos 5:2-5:20.

But is it really the End Time that Amos saw here? Answer: Yes, see Amos 5:18. And more. The creation of “their festivals” thus millennial secular style weddings and their pop-culture music in worship (Amos 6:5).

For this it is important to get back to the Bible and look carefully what is more packed in their for our own times.


Amos and God’s rejection of worship of the unfaithful

Amos describes God closing His eyes, ears and smell (Amos 5:21-23). He rejects their festivals and will not smell their sacrifices (Amos 5:21). He will not see their fattened cattle as burnt-offerings (Amos 5:22). "Take away from Me the din of your sons, and the music of your lutes I will not hear" (Amos 5:23). The unconverted Adventists in the end-time created their own "festivities", their own "fattened" donations for projects; their own music "your songs" (Amos 5:21-23). Christ our Righteousness shall appear as the King of Glory and "Justice shall be revealed (wǝyiggal) like water, and Righteousness like a mighty stream" (Amos 5:24). Amos went back to history to look at what the remnant did after they were saved from Egypt in 1450 BCE. The post-exodus wandering scene is brought in. Why? For God prepared His bride during this time (Amos 5:25). God provided for them during these 40 years. But, at the end-time they shall carry the Siccuth and the Kiyun, Kochav their god which they have made for themselves (Amos 5:26). The Lord will exile them beyond Damascus, the remnant weed of Amos' day. One of the most controversial contemporary religious ethics is the rules for a photographer. Not only is he/she participating actively against the command not to make images and worship them, he/she is making them not worshipping them, but others of his clients will. Do they? Icons in pop-culture. Thus, he secondly has to take a picture while the prayer is offered so that the worshipper has pictures of himself/herself of their piety. Gudea the governor of Larsa was such a king in 2350 BCE. He made many statutes of himself in a pious position to portray to all his piety.


Amos 6 and evil denouncement at the End

Amos says there are people in the mountain of Samaria who "those who despise to the day of evil" (hamenadim leyom ra) and Rabbi Rashi of the Middle Ages says they "despise the prophecy of the days of evil" (Amos 6:3). Ibn Ezra said they "push off the day of evil". Rashi prefers the reading "you who cause yourselves to move to the day of evil". They are to compare themselves with Babylon or Calneh as or Hamath or Aramean territory or Gath of the Philistines (Amos 6:2). There problems were (1) house-furniture: "beds of ivory" very expensive and unecessary (Amos 6:3); (2) strange delicacies: "lambs from the flock and calves from the midst of the stall" which is lamb meat and calve meat meaning that they have so much that they will have no problem if they do eat it (Amos 6:4); (3) musical problems: they sing according to the tone of the lute and some translations suggests that they improvise according to sound of the harp. They thought their instruments of song are like David's (Amos 6:5). Like David they thought themselves instruments of song. What it means is that a spiritual song in the hand of the unspiritual is not acceptable to God; (4) Alcohol: from sacrificial bowls they drink wine (Amos 6:6); (5) Anoint themselves: "with the finest of oils" again very expensive exquisite tastes for fashion and lifestyle (Amos 6:6). Although the area of Joseph was ruined, they did not pay attention to it. At the coming exile in future, they were to go into exile at the head of the exiles (Amos 6:7). They have more problems: "you have turned justice into poison" (Amos 6:12); the fruit of righteousness into wormwood (Amos 6:12); they rejoice in lodabar which is the silencing of the pastor or preacher or prophet (Amos 6:13); they take pride in their own achievements "have we not by our own strength taken Karnaim". Therefore the Lord is going to rise up a nation, maybe from Aramean territory from Hamath (Amos 6:14).

Micah 1:4 Mountains melt under Him. Jerusalem is not spared evil descended from the Lord to the gate of Jerusalem (Micah 1:12).
