    Ephesians 6:13 and Matthew 5

    Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth

    But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

    And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.

    And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him two

    Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

    Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

    But I say unto you, LOVE your enemies, BLESS them that curse you, DO GOOD to them that hate you, and PRAY for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you

    That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sends the rain on the just and on the unjust.

    For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans do the same?

    And if ye salute your friends only, what do ye more than others? do not even the mean people so?

    Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

    I know you've read this part. It's very hard to pray for them. You have to stand fast and do excellent work, AS UNTO JESUS! Make HIM proud.

    I had the same problem with the bosses and unholy coworkers. If you are working as if Jesus is your Boss; this will be easy.

    Pray every day for them all to be promoted.

    No sour looks. Be helpful but don't get drawn into office GOSSIP. Having done all, TO STAND. If you will do this as to Jesus your Big Boss: He's gonna take care of you. Stand solid in faith!

    It works! I saw a lot of mean people get promoted out...and I had 'peace in the valley'.

    The Lord is my Shepard. I shall not want.

    Always remember the Giant God that watches over us. His spirit is all around us. He knows when we are Lonely..Hurting..sad.. Wanting Him close. His Love has such depth that it could move the tallest heaviest mountain. His Light so strong it blinds you. Been to Heaven..saw truth in Him. Saw His Heavenly Son fighting for me. He is real. The Bible...His words to take care of us..His Strong truth who He is...and what He wants for us..the evilness of this world is now being shown strong...fight as we never fought before. Who do you choose? Think...think heavy...Decide now. The power of His words.. The Blood of His Son...The suffering of His Son...fighting and dying for our Sins--should be enough to turn to Him as never before. Fight we must...Fight as the evilness tries and take Him from us. On your knees with your must as the days become as His words warned us in Revelation. God's people must never turn back. Remember His words.. A brighter tomorrow we will have!!!

    Esther 8:17 and many of the people of the land became Jews.

    If the people of the land "became Jews" it wasn't by blood, so it must have been ceremonial and believing in the true God. Were they then part of the nation of Isreal that can claim promises from God?

    Provisions or Possessions

    In this chapter we see how God despises Israel's pride as the people competed in extravagance while they continued to suppress the poor. In making application we see how the Lord hates a proud look as it is self worship. The Lord provides all of our needs and there is nothing wrong with providing for our families but when our provisions become possessions or idols the Lord will judge. How about you? Are your provisions from the Lord a possession of pride? Let us learn from our text today and the example of Israel to see how their pride of their possessions at the expense of others brought them the judgement of the Lord.
  • E Maloney on Amos 6:10 - 4 years ago
    The time has come for us the people of God to live righteous, holy and upright life before almighty God. Judgement shall begin in the house of the Lord. We must be in a place to hear well done, my good and faithful servant... We must serve our God in spirit and in truth withholding nothing.
    Blessed be the name of our most high God - Jesus.
  • Matthew 6v24through34 on Amos 6 - 4 years ago
    This was just highlighted just now, by accident as I scrolled for something else in Matthew, that NEVER happens, so it may be a sign from God. I wanted to share this with you all, please remember Christ's words! He cannot lie, AMEN! IDK what is in store, but God delivered Israel when they were between a Red Sea and their enemy behind them. How? God just decided to part the sea and make a way (out of no way)!

    Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

    Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?"

    In these days,,, it appears that our GOD may be preparing the way to Judgement.. Stay ready.
  • Angela on Amos 6 - 4 years ago
    I just want to thank God. We love you God. In the name of Jesus Christ.. Amen

    We are to turn from our wicked ways and obey him.
  • Anne on Amos 6 - 7 years ago
    A warning to those that are concerned only with their own comforts and luxury living and not concerned about the things of God will be the first to go into captivity. When calamity comes, their hearts become so hardened against God that they do not want to give Him praise in any thing.

    We are to help others and not think about ourselves all the times.
  • Linda brundidge on Amos 6 - 9 years ago
    I think that we could learn alot from it if we just study and ask God to help us understand
  • Rhonda on Amos 6:5 - 9 years ago
    I don 't understand it
  • Bob K. on Amos 6 - 9 years ago
    Prosperity that enveloped the royal family and prominent members of society but did not trickle down to the poor. It is this uneven distribution of wealth in the 18th that set the atmosphere for the social crimes that Amos so violently abhorred.

  • Brenda on Amos 6:10 - 10 years ago
    The verse was difficult for me to understand. The other translations were very helpful. I need to pray more and ask God for understanding before I read His Word.
  • Friday Ogiri on Amos 6 - 10 years ago
    we who are shepherds must feed the flock in accordance with the word of our chief shepherd (lord Jesus) John 21:15-17. But today many shepherds have turned themselves to princes in self enrichment and oppression of the flock.
