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.

God 's warnings through Amos apply to America as well as Israel. Complacency by the churches and the citizens of this nation will bring God 's wrath down upon us. We 've allowed "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS " to be our bible instead of the Word of God.

Amos like most prophets warned of gods coming punishment for sin and injustice, we in America must take noted lest we be judge with the same punishment

God might seem to be silent for a long time over our wickedness but his judgements are inevitable, he knows the right time to execute it.

this to me is pointed in the direction of future consequences of injustice to our Lord and his children and his ordinances

This passage is an indictment against many nations America should be taking notes For three transgressions and for four are we guilty
ROY THOMAS's Amos Chapter 1 comment about verse 14 on 2/02/2014, 1:50pm...
This is the language of the God who is a God of judgment. He knows the evil occurring in the cities and in the hearts of men. No one will escape the punishment that follows sin. "I will kindle a fire on the wall." He will do it. Men are like grass. Their bodies can feel the pain of oxidation. They die like grass. The eternal God will bring them up for judgment. He is the resurrection. No one will escape. On the wall there might be a whore house but from the whore house on the wall of Rabbah to the white house of the palace the judgment will fall and the whirling winds will herald the beginning of the end.

As in the days of Amos, Chapter 2 comments
" The Lord will roar from Zion and utter his voice from Jerusalem. The anger of the Lord was kindle. As it is today, the anger of God is again kindle against the unrighteousness of this world and he will rule according to his will as it is in heaven upon this earth. Let us therefore study the word of God and pray for much understanding.
