    5:18 reminds me of people I have talked to and all they are interest is the book of Revelation and do not care about what the other 65 books have to say.

    In the chapter above the HEART OF GOD (things GOD LOVE and the things HE hate) is clearly seen; and yes we also see the wrath of Jehovah / GOD. ( Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me). WOW! WOW! WOW!.

    Verses 21-24~Jehovah God did not look with delight upon the sacrifices of the people. They were not worshipping him in an acceptable way and their motives were not pure.
  • BSP
    Verse 14: We must search for good and not what is bad. This will require effort because we are surrounded by badness.
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    If I stay DAILY IN WORD N PRAYER ITS DIFFICULT. TO BE DRUNK WITH THE WINE OF HER FORNICATION. you need to set your affections on heaven and not on earth
  • A disciple
    Ann; Again, Scripture has to be taken in the context it is written, and understood with sound thinking. Not all continue in sin with desperately wicked hearts! Those terms were used about a specific kind, because of their impossible to cure defiance! God has commanded us to walk in truth and righteousness; that's why we repent and are converted; and all for which He has died on the cross for us.
  • Ann
    Romans 3:10 says, As it is written; There is none righteous, no, not one:
  • A disciple
    Steve; You asked, "HOW DO WE KNOW?" By using discernment! So much careful defending of the unholy and lawless these days; the righteous falling all over themselves to treat everyone like equals, and act as if they don't see anything filthy or perverted in their "chosen" lifestyle! The verse you shared is for us not to let hypocrisy give them opportunity to blaspheme the Lord and tear us to pieces.
  • A disciple
    "Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time." (finally) If the Lord has seen that there's no more reason to send His servants to speak with people, nor anything else He can do to persuade them to repent; then the time has run out, and we have to let God finish the matter. God has called us to be His ambassadors of peace until its no longer possible to make peace.
  • A disciple
    "Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time." (cont. 2) Now for the good and honest heart to live among the those who will have none of that, and are set in their hearts to live like there is no God, and no day coming to give account to Him; we must have an acceptance, however unhappy, that God Himself has to have regarding such; and know when to let them be.
  • A disciple
    "Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time." (cont.) The apparent indiscriminate casting of the seed into every kind of ground, may be seen by some as a waste of time; but it shows God's willingness for all to receive the love of the truth and be saved; and so too the fact that every one CAN indeed be a good and honest heart if they would; BUT THEY WON'T!
  • A disciple
    "Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time." There comes a time when God ceases to speak to people. Some people's hearts are so beaten down past feeling by sinning, the Word cannot ever penetrate. Some refuse to do the work to prepare their heart for the Word to enter in a meaningful way. Some foolishly think they can be all in the world and like the world.
  • A disciple
    BSP; 21-24 cannot be taken out of the context of the whole word here: it wasn't just about sacrifices, but about an unregenerate unrepentant heart that still persists in its religious appearances (HYPOCRISY) while the inside is full of the pride and filth of the heathen. In Ezekiel God showed how He knows what's really in the innermost chambers of our minds and all the things men think are hidden.
  • BSP
    Verses 21-24: God was concerned with their motive and not so much with their sacrifice. If we offer sacrifices to Jehovah God without the right motive or attitude, they will not be acceptable to him and he will not be pleased with them.

    V. 8 - is so beautiful; if people could just SEE it ...............
  • Wayne
    The word of God is given for this day. The day of the Lord is not hiden from you .know that it is mercies and of love for you in this day of which God speaks. A sign is given and who has sought it out?
  • Rodion Ponomariev for verse 26
    Amos 5:26 But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.
  • Jacktone for verse 14
    Always maintain good actions and God will never forsake you
  • Brianna for verse 15
    Verse 14 showed that we need to search out what is Good. To understand what is good and acceptable, we need to study the Bible. Then this verse encourages us to Hate what is bad, and love what is good. It seems like more and more, things condemned in the bible is being presented as something "good ", and that the Bible 's viewpoint is being presented as something "bad ". Satan 's world is switching the roles of Good , and bad, bringing down the morality in people. So the previous verse is really important, because we need to search through God 's word to determine the good and the bad, and then make a stand for Jehovah God 's viewpoint.

    Amos 5 is a warning to God 's people to turn their heart to him and not seek after idols there is only one true and living God and he is a just God who sits high and looks low checking and detecting the hearts of the people that is the reason for heaven and hell because of the hearts of people we are always looking for some form of gratified feelings instead of God way which is Jesus our redeemer the son of God who bore the sins of the world

    this is what america need to do repent and turn back to GOD. the word of GOD have to be fulfilled but I believe that if we repent we would 'nt see as much crime as we are seeing today 2chrnicoles says if my people who are called by my name shall humble them self pray seek my face and turn from their wicket ways then will I hear from heaven forgive their sins and heal their land.why can 't we just obey the word of GOD.I do not want things my way I want things to be GOD way because HE knows what is best for all of us.HE is the creator of us all.LORD of LORD and KING of KINGS that 's GOD.
  • Maria
    God is always warning us to turn to him , it will be judgment day , and than those shall pay who have not done as god has said ,his warning say that there is a Hell and Heaven . Let us believe on what his son Jesus has taught us and believe in him and have a true relationship .
  • Jane Clifton for verse 26
    I need more information because there is the star of Satan are witchcraft and the star of David. Help me understand which star are you talking about. I have a star of David around my neck but I do not wont to wear it if it is bad.
  • John
    The warning what will happen during the last 3 1 2 years of tribulation for the descendants of Joseph, the last 12 tribes of Israel. 1000 cities and only 100 survive the coming of Christ. If America has 300 Million, only 10 , 30 Million will survive. Something not to look forward to starting in 2015 to 2019.
  • Ronald Arnce
    I see this chapter as a warning for us to truly an humbly seek the face of GOD and follow his direction. Those that hide behind the trappings of religion and tradition while using it to oppress His children will pay a great price and all the have will be taken from them. It was so in the Time of Amos and is valid today. Heed the prophet a and be blessed

    When reading and understanding the text, the Ruach leads ine in a sense of definition, revealing revelation. I was seeing how the heart of man should be turn to He who created and that 8s everything. YAHWE knows the heart of man which is the mind and He knows when we are far from Him ornear to Him.and yet the text informed us to seek Him, alerting us as His children are to seek Him to find life and to know life. He will also by us seeking him will direct the ways of man that he will not wander off in the wrong direction. I was reading one comment which was speaking concerning saturn and satan and above all we know Father Yahwe created the universe and everything in, around and through that His image became to being. This is an awesome text and can be studied further, thats why Yah tells us to study and when we study He who reveals, reveals! Shalom!
  • the same star that we find on these federal researve notes. notes that exact an additional tax from the working class for the building fund s for their new world order
  • Evang Jude for verse 4
    men brethren let us go back seeking The LORD WE CANNOT have true life without HIM . We can only exist without HIM.
  • George for verse 26
    True And correct The Holy Spirit is guiding you Amen
  • Medina
    Satan does not own Saturn...God created the universe and the planet Saturn is owned by God and God alone!
