Discussion for Amos 3:7

  • Kofo Masha for verse 7
    I believe that God still reveal himself to the faithfuls. He warned people people sending disaster or blessing. He revealed Himself to Moses before sending the plaques to Pharaoh. He revealed Himself to Mary before the birth of Jesus. But do we have many faithful Prophets now?
  • Nangamso for verse 7
    This scripture is still relevant in our days..it is very deep..i believe that God does reveal His secrets to His servants the Prophets..then the prophet has to speak the word forth in due season...the words spoken by the prophet are so powerful and guaranteed to come to pass because a prophet is God's mouth piece...God uses prophets to bring His plans on earth...the bible says in the begining was the word and the word was with God and the word was God and nothing in all creation was created without Him...that says it all
