Israel, King Jeroboam, and Amaziah didn't deserve God's mercy. Neither do we, but God will give it when we confess, repent, and turn to Him. Who do you choose to serve?


Be blessed!

The Israelites continued in their sins. God's relented His judgment several times. His love for them and His righteousness required judgment on the Israelites in the end. Are you like the Israelites? We all have been at some time.


Be blessed.

With Amos 6, Amos proclaimed the exact way God's judgment would fall upon them. He explained those whom God found most unfaithful to His covenant with them. 

We today are like Israel was. We sin. We make ourselves our own God. We think nothing can happen to us either because of our acumen, physicality, or because God will only give us blessings, forgetting He also punishes. We need to learn a lesson from Israel's history and return to God before He must punish us, too.

God called to Israel to return to Him. He wanted His justice and righteousness to flow over them. God still calls to us to receive and live out His justice and righteousness. Will you turn to Him?

In Amos 5:1-17, Amos lamented ISrael's judgment that would come upon them. He lamented for Israel.

Israel did not choose God and felt punishment. Amos pled with them to repent and return to a right relationship with God. They chose to follow their own desires.

Who will you choose?

The rich and leaders of Israel cared more for things and power than helping their fellow man. Will you turn your back on others to seek things of this earth?

What happens when God continues to call people to return to Him and they do not? He must judge them.

When we study Amos, we learn this lesson from Israel's rebellion against God. What will be God's judgment of us for rebelling against Him?

Will we learn from Israel's charge and punishment? Will we realize God loves us and wants to have a relationship with us.

Now's the time to make our own decisions.

God was serious about His judgment of Israel. So much so, He expounded on it for four more chapters in Amos.

Hear the common causal relationships and understand with the Israelites when God speaks, He will certainly cause what He says to happen.

Do we believe and act upon what God tells us to do? We should heed this lesson God and Amos taught Israel.

Why would God judge His chosen people, Israel? He loves them so why destroy them?

The Israelites sin against God was greater than that of the pagan nations. Why would that be? Why does it appear God would not save them from their enemies?

Are there times when you feel God has left you, that He is not helping make things better?

Listen to this podcast or read the written Bible study and learn answers to these questions and understand God's judgment of Israel.

Amos continued prophesying until he reached Israel in his net of prophecies. He prophesied against the nation of Judah with God's charge and judgment against them. Judah was the closest in proximity and blood line than any of the previous nations. By now, Israel's interest should have been piqued and their consciences pricked.

Would Israel pay attention to God's charges and judgment of Judah?

Would they return to God before it was too late?

Are we supposed to pay attention to this prophecy spoke about 2800 years ago? Is it important for us now?

Join me and others as we continue our study of the book of Amos in the Old Testament.
