"Yet it was I who destroyed the Amorite before them,
Whose height was like the height of the cedars,
And he was as strong as the oaks;
Yet I destroyed his fruit above
And his roots beneath.

Also it was I who brought you up from the land of Egypt,
And led you forty years through the wilderness,
To possess the land of the Amorite."

Amos 2:9-10

God is warning Israel, through the prophet Amos, of its coming punishment and reminding them of all the great things He had done for them. In these verses He is referring to the descendants of the giant Anak.

Greetings Bible Enthusiast!

It feels like our society is being primed for the kinds of interactions described in the scriptures.

Consider all the movies, books, TV shows, and games that exhibit intimate relationships between humans (more commonly women and children) and demons or extraterrestrials. We see it so often that it has become commonplace and most people do not even give it a second thought.

We owe it to ourselves, and especially our children to give it much more than a second thought, and much prayer.

God Bless You!
