    What do horn on the altar signify?
  • Chris - in Reply on Amos 3
    Hello Deborah. Are you enquiring about the meaning of this passage (btw, Amos chapter 3 only goes to verse 15)?

    If so, the Prophet Amos, who was actually a sheep-herder ( Amos 7:15), was called by God to give Israel another stern warning (chapters 3 to 6). If they didn't change their ways & begin to honour God rather than play with idolatry, the Judgement of God still stood against them.

    Bethel was no longer a holy special place (as it was for Abraham & Jacob) but a city given to idolatry. So in the passage you've asked explanation for, God tells Amos to proclaim to wicked Israel, that their judgement & captivity is certain. God will destroy the altars that they created in Bethel, not for godly worship, but to idols. They probably still had the true altar there, but others were raised as well. The "horns of the altar", where once the blood of the sacrifice was poured upon, would now be cut off & cast upon the ground. And if that wasn't enough to alert them & bring repentance & change of worship, even the grand houses of those of wealth (wealth no doubt accrued from idolatrous practises & corruption) would be destroyed. These were houses that some had for the Winter & Summer seasons & houses laced with ivory & precious metals (King Ahab of Judah built such a house: 1 Kings 22:39). All these will come to an end, when they would be destroyed & the people be taken into captivity.

    im currently reading the bible. However, the language is somewhat confusing. Is the a site that explains verses in todays comprehension. I really enjoy reading the bible, however again, Im have problems understanding the contents.
  • Leslie A Ford on Amos 3:3
    Have you all never experienced the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ? You sound so full of hurt and betrayal. I know it all too well. The loneliness, the years of loneliness. But, never give up on love. Faith, hope, and love in the Spirit of God not young

    Beth means house and el (like Elohim) has a reference to God so Bethel means House of God literally.

    Genesis 31:13 I am the God of Bethel, where thou anointedst the pillar, and where thou vowedst a vow unto me: now arise, get thee out from this land, and return unto the land of thy kindred.

    Amos 3:14 That in the day that I shall visit the transgressions of Israel upon him I will also visit the altars of Bethel: and the horns of the altar shall be cut off, and fall to the ground.

    Bethel did have much apostacy at times.
  • Bruce A Peterson on Amos 3:14
    Beth-el was a major worship center in Israel, a rival to the temple in Jerusalem, which was the capital of Judah. The prophets criticized of this site for its pagan practices. Jeroboam I, the first king of the northern kingdom of Israel, caused a golden calf to be erected and worshiped here. 1Kings 12:25ff.

    Walking Together

    In this chapter we see the people of God going in an opposite direction from the Word of the Lord causing a separation in their walk with the Lord. In making application we see today that if we chose to act contrary to the Word of our Lord we will fail to walk together in fellowship with our Lord. How about you? Do you obey the Word of the Lord? Let us learn from our text today and the example of Israel to understand that two must agree, if they are to walk together.

    If the fig tree that Jesus spoke about in Matthew 24 represents the nation of Israel, then the rapture might take place within our lifetimes.
  • Chris - in Reply on Amos 3
    No. We're not told when that time of the Rapture of the Church will take place, but that Christians should be watchful & living careful lives. John in 1 Jn 3:2,3 speaks of the time when Jesus appears, we shall be changed to be like Him. And that everyone has this hope in him (i.e. looking for His Coming & our being with Him forever), purifies Himself (i.e. by dwelling on this wonderful event to come & as such living each day for Him).
  • Nars A Stevens on Amos 3
    will God reveal the pre-trip rapture to anyone????
  • Chris on Amos 3
    Why do you feel that this Bethel Church is a pagan church Are you trying to connect the name, Bethel, with the idolatry that took place there ( 1 Kings 12:32) Please don't leave the Church you are now attending, if they properly teaching from the Word & Christ is the centre in everything they do.
  • Davene DuBois on Amos 3
    i'm attending a christian baptist church, but i have found out that their sister church is Bethel, and the bible says do not worship at this pagan church. i want to now leave and seek another church, because of this, I've

    When a person walk they take one step at a time. If two people walk side by side, it doesn't mean that they are moving in sinc with one another, they both walk differently. One might walk on his toes, the other on his heel. but if they are walking in the same direction, then they are in agreement, taking the same path.
  • Jennifer Harvey - in Reply on Amos 3
    Absolutely! I agree!

    His word is only clear to his people, not to all other nations, they are spoken to in dark sentences and parables. to them it is not given to understand, but to you it is given.

    and His spirit is only given to those whom He have a covenant with....ISRAEL

    Verse 7 shows that Jehovah God uses human prophets to make sure that his will is revealed.
  • A disciple on Amos 3
    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 on Amos 3
    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.
  • Lonnie on Amos 3
    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 can we walk with the Lord except we agree God help us all.
  • Sb on Amos 3
    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 on Amos 3
    The secret of God is made known to Man through the Holy Spirit.
  • Andrew on Amos 3
    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
  • Jennifer on Amos 3
    God is very clear about his word!
