Discussion for Amos 3

  • A disciple
    Dear Stan; That's why we must keep our hearts fixed on Him who sits at the right hand of God, who is very soon coming for us. This is NOT our Country, nor our World; and though we do pray for the good of the people of this place; we also understand that the things will only get worse as men increasingly despise and reject the Saviour Jesus Christ and disobey His Words. Hang in there, Brother!
  • Stan
    In the last days both believers and non-believer will be given in to itching ears. A bowl will be poured out a bowl of delusion were good is evil and evil is good. Look at all the things that are an abomination to God word that is happening. Look at how man is protecting and defending the evilness. His wraith will be like Sodom and Gomorra. We will destroy ourselves from within.

    It's sad to say but the United State is in the condition , the word is being preached but people still want to do things the way want to do them without God doing anything....how can we walk with the Lord except we agree God help us all.
  • Sb
    I think that we in the united states is just what Amos is describing we need to repent as a people and return back to the Lord .Jesus Christ is real and he is the head of my life.
  • Adebayo Daniel Tubosun
    The secret of God is made known to Man through the Holy Spirit.
  • Andrew
    I believe God was giving them a chance to repent, God want a relationship with his people Israel. If you are going to talk it you better walk it. Being in a relationship with God, you have to be in agree with the word of God. And live it. You can't be in a friendship, without being in fellowship with God. (A Relationship). I trust God with my life, I put my life in his hands. Jesus is my Life.Amen
