Discussion for Amos 1

  • A disciple
    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.
