    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.

    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
  • 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.

  • Yunana Amos Ambisa

  • Maria Drummond

    The persecution and continual oppression of Gods people will be vindicated by God

    Amos 1:3 means that the nations have sinned again and again.
  • Jennifer
    God's word is clear concerning his judgement on this earth!
  • Paul masawa
    Very intresting the word of God came to Amos when he was caring for the sheep not in an office carrying out business transuction,so what lesson can you learn from that as christian we are suppose to take care for oneanother also we should be against the oppression of the poor together misstreatment that may arise

    Amos understood how the courts were supposed to protect the poor and administer true justice. Instead the courts were shamefully corrupt.
  • Bob k.
    Amos also knew the history of Israel 's other enemies. He was using his historical knowledge to build a verbal bomb! That History was a type of the destruction coming upon modern Israel. most people don 't know who modern Israel is.
  • Maria
    I was never to aware as now as to the reading of amos it , is a sorrowful passage hopefully with understanding of the holy spirit , God has become so angry that Judgement is passing many during this time and going to destroy many people who have made a mockery of him ,let us hear and know that he is God , before judgment comes upon us now ,like the earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes more than ever , mudslides , it speaks of a earthquake in this passage, all our weather conditions are strange all around the world at this time.

    chapter1 especially 8,10,11 this three verses are talking about the punishment for philistine,tyre and edom if they do not repent God wil send fire upon this nations,because in ezekiel25,27and28 were warned. Now to us when we hear such let us repent and draw close to God because God will drop fire on us if we not repent.israel or its neighbours are not withus now who will God send fire upon the answer is us.
  • Neena
    God 's warnings through Amos apply to America as well as Israel. Complacency by the churches and the citizens of this nation will bring God 's wrath down upon us. We 've allowed "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS " to be our bible instead of the Word of God.
  • Mitchell striggles
    Amos like most prophets warned of gods coming punishment for sin and injustice, we in America must take noted lest we be judge with the same punishment
  • Harry Collins
    God might seem to be silent for a long time over our wickedness but his judgements are inevitable, he knows the right time to execute it.
  • Sandras
    this to me is pointed in the direction of future consequences of injustice to our Lord and his children and his ordinances
  • Debra Scales
    This passage is an indictment against many nations America should be taking notes For three transgressions and for four are we guilty
  • ROY THOMAS for verse 14
    This is the language of the God who is a God of judgment. He knows the evil occurring in the cities and in the hearts of men. No one will escape the punishment that follows sin. "I will kindle a fire on the wall." He will do it. Men are like grass. Their bodies can feel the pain of oxidation. They die like grass. The eternal God will bring them up for judgment. He is the resurrection. No one will escape. On the wall there might be a whore house but from the whore house on the wall of Rabbah to the white house of the palace the judgment will fall and the whirling winds will herald the beginning of the end.

    As in the days of Amos, Chapter 2 comments
    " The Lord will roar from Zion and utter his voice from Jerusalem. The anger of the Lord was kindle. As it is today, the anger of God is again kindle against the unrighteousness of this world and he will rule according to his will as it is in heaven upon this earth. Let us therefore study the word of God and pray for much understanding.
  • Amos
    It is sure,the wages of sin is death.
  • NANDDI
    FOR THE WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH...
  • Denah
    Just like in the olden days, people are transgressing God's laws and the Lord is punishing them. The Decalogue is Love to God and Love to Fellowmen. If we are guilty to even just one of them, we are guilty to the whole. Then we deserve death. Transgress the LAW=SIN=DEATH. But thanks to JESUS who died for all sinners. Praise His Wonderful Name!

    @Yvone,
    In this section, GOD is pronouncing sentences to different nations of the region, because of what they respectively have done.
    It’s so simple, so clear.
    GOD bless you
  • Yvonne Boatright for verse 5
    I am not quite sure to be honest.. I am still praying and asking the Lord Jesus to reveal it's truths to my heart. Perhaps you could shed some light on this scripture..
  • Sis. Bonnie
    As today's chosen disciples GOD has given us the authority to declare the HIS word to the world by example of walking, talking , and living up right in the sight of GOD and man, and declaring that the wages of sin is death, but gift of GOD is eternal life,therefore, we must choose GOD and live
  • Amos njah
    'the words of Amos'are words of God. God only passed the words through Amos because in those days the Bible was not complete. Today we have the Word of God (the Bible) with us. We need to use, even when there is no Amos to proclaim what God says.
  • David
    In this book God did not hide his anger against wrong doing
  • Ginny
    The Jews had a tradition that Amos spoke with stammering lips, was this because of his heavy burden?
