"Food for Thought" from Pastor Robert Weaver

Bulletin for June 25th, 2017

pastor weaver food for thought

A few years ago, Dr. Stephen Dempster, told us during one of our classes about a subtle aspect of the prophet Amos that points us to worship.  I remember him first pointing it out during a lecture and eventually sharing with us an article that he wrote about the fragments of an ancient hymn found in the book of Amos.  That fine detail of the prophet’s writing pointed out by a diligent professor has stuck with me even after 20+ years since it was first brought to my attention.  What it looks like Amos is doing is that he is referring to a beloved hymn that I am suggesting to you was titled “The LORD Almighty is His Name”.  Amos uses it to shock his readers out of idolatry and into worship of the only true God.  He wants them to open their blind eyes and soften their hard hearts and see that just singing the song is not enough.  He wants them to know that we must worship The LORD Almighty and none other.  Idolatry is false worship because it gives praise to something or someone other than The LORD Almighty.  Since that class and reading that article I have been sensitive to the use of the phrase “The LORD Almighty is His Name” in the Old Testament.  I am including below a possible compilation of that ancient hymn.  One verse is taken from the Prophet Jeremiah and the rest from Amos.  There may be more verses in the Scripture that I have missed and I will keep searching.  Nevertheless, it stands as a bold Biblical call to worship Him who has created all things and who sustains all things.

The LORD Almighty is His Name, He who appoints the sun to shine by day
Who decrees the moon and stars to shine by night.
Who stirs up the sea so that it waves roar.
The LORD Almighty is His Name. (look at Jeremiah 31:35)
He who forms the mountains,
Creates the wind and reveals His thoughts to man.
He who turns dawn to darkness and treads the high places of earth.
The LORD God Almighty is His Name. (look at Amos 4:13)
He who made the Pleiades and Orion
Who turns blackness into dawn and darkens day into night,
Who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out over the face of the land.  The LORD [Almighty] is His Name. (look at Amos 5:8)
He who touches the earth and it melts, And all who live in it mourn.
The whole land rises like the Nile, Then sinks like the river of Egypt
[The LORD Almighty is His Name.] (look at Amos 9:5)
He who builds His lofty palace in the heavens
And sets its foundation on the earth. Who calls for the waters of the sea
And pours them out over the face of the land.
The LORD [Almighty] is His Name. (look at Amos 9:6)
