Amos 3:14 (NKJV)
14 “That in the day I punish Israel for their transgressions, I will also visit destruction on the altars of Bethel; And the horns of the altar shall be cut off And fall to the ground.
In (levictus 16:18) Aaron was commanded to put blood on the horns of the altar to make atonement for it & to cleanse it.
The horns of the altar in Jerusalem had provided refuge for fugitives,those who took hold of them were granted asylum(1 kings 1:50-53)
Could it be that in (Amos 3:14)when God promised that the horns will be cut off & fall to the ground meant that there would be no place of asylum, no place of escaping God's judgment?
