(1) In reference to the nations this concept is equally valid: see Amos 9:12 and compare with Amos 1:11-12(NASB) . In a negaitive sense it is used in Amos 1:8 where even a remnant of the Philistines shall perish.

in For I know that my Redeemer liveth and that he shall stand in the laettr days upon the earth . It is false Christianity that misunderstands the gospel of salvation and because of this misunderstanding, refers to the gospel of salvation as applicable re new testament. False Christianity would have us believe that it was an after thought of God in the salvation of humanity. It is more than clear from the book of Genesis to the book of Revelation that the plan of the salvation of humanity was in place even before the foundations of the world was laid. We often hear the phrase “cheap grace.” Yet, it’s a misnomer. Grace isn’t cheap—it’s free (at least for us). But we ruin it when we think that we can add to it by our works or when we think we can use it as an excuse to sin. In your own experience, which one of these two ways are you more inclined to lean toward, and how can you stop? The AuthorThat anyone could refer to God's Grace as cheap is indicative of the collossal misunderstanding of the price God paid to save humanity from the condemnation of eternal death. God could have started all over and made humans who were perfect, maintaining them in a perfect state, and making them unable to commit sin; and with them pleasing God in everything, albeit, as robots. Even then He chose to expose Himself to the ridicule and disdain of humanity to save humans who have ignored and rejected His gifts and his offer of salvation. He allowed the death of Innocent God in the process .And you say Grace is cheap ! In any language, to refer to God's grace in any fashion different from the way He sees His Grace, should be avoided. The plan of salvation, now six thousand years old, is a mystery; and throughout eternity, we'll be trying to understand this mystery. Just let us thank God that he has blessed us to be beneficiaries of His boundless grace and mercy; a privilege that we will never deserve..a cost that we can never repay. Courtney
