1 The wordes of Amos, who was among the heardmen of Tekoa, which hee sawe concerning Israel, in the daies of Uzziah King of Iudah, and in the dayes of Ieroboam the sonne of Ioash king of Israel, two yere before the earthquake.
5 I wil breake also the barre of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plaine of Auen: and him that holdeth the scepter from the house of Eden, and the people of Syria shall goe into captiuitie, vnto Kir, saith the Lord.
6 ∂ Thus saith the Lord, For three transgressions of Gaza, and for foure I will not turne away the punishment thereof: because they caried away captiue the whole captiuitie, to deliuer them vp to Edom.
8 And I wil cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holdeth the scepter from Ashkelon, and I wil turne mine hand against Ekron; and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish, saith the Lord God.
9 ∂ Thus saith the Lord, For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for foure I wil not turne away the punishment thereof, because they deliuered vp the whole captiuitie to Edom, and remembred not the brotherly couenant.
11 ∂ Thus saith the Lord, For three transgressions of Edom, and for foure, I will not turne away the punishment thereof, because he did pursue his brother with the sword, and did cast off all pitie, and his anger did teare perpetually, and kept his wrath for euer.
13 ∂ Thus sayth the Lord, For three transgressions of the children of Ammon, and for foure, I wil not turne away the punishment thereof; because they haue ript vp the women with childe of Gilead, that they might enlarge their border.

Just like in the olden days, people are transgressing God's laws and the Lord is punishing them. The Decalogue is Love to God and Love to Fellowmen. If we are guilty to even just one of them, we are guilty to the whole. Then we deserve death. Transgress the LAW=SIN=DEATH. But thanks to JESUS who died for all sinners. Praise His Wonderful Name!

In this section, GOD is pronouncing sentences to different nations of the region, because of what they respectively have done.
Itís so simple, so clear.
GOD bless you

I am not quite sure to be honest.. I am still praying and asking the Lord Jesus to reveal it's truths to my heart. Perhaps you could shed some light on this scripture..

As today's chosen disciples GOD has given us the authority to declare the HIS word to the world by example of walking, talking , and living up right in the sight of GOD and man, and declaring that the wages of sin is death, but gift of GOD is eternal life,therefore, we must choose GOD and live

'the words of Amos'are words of God. God only passed the words through Amos because in those days the Bible was not complete. Today we have the Word of God (the Bible) with us. We need to use, even when there is no Amos to proclaim what God says.
