    He was angry with the old world and destroyed it. Since then all your works are judged and you cannot create freely. Hence the arrival of the cross.
  • FANIA ELLA
    AMOS WAS A HARD WORKING KIND OF MAN WHO GOD LOVED AND CALLED HIM TO BE HIS OWN MESSENGER.AMOS HEARD THE CALL AND HE STARTED DELIVERING THE MESSAGES OF GOD TO HIS PEOPLE IN ISRAEL. WE SEE THAT MANY PEOPLE REJECTED HIS MESSAGES BUT HE NEVER GAVE UP. AMOS IS THEREFORE seen as a good role model to many christians , in that though he was rejected by the sundry he still passed on his voice loud to them

    Syria represents the ancient family who did not go with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to seek the One True and Living God Almighty; but clave to their idols and the heathen way. The Palestinians were heathen neighbors who NEVER repented, always made themselves enemies of the Lord. Tyre and Zidon were traitors and hypocrites and heathen at heart. Ammon were evil children whose parents were once saved.
  • Mazel Adella Hart
