Discussion for Amos 3:15

  • Timothy Wayne George on Amos 3:15
    Amos 3:15, God warned He would smite the winter house with the summer house. We must pray God that He may have mercy on us. When a hurricane and a winter storm come at the same time, God is warning us to repent, before something worst comes. Pray for all the people who are in the path of these storms.
