God's words through Amos the prophet

Amos 1:1 The words of Amos[1], who was among the herdmen of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.

1 "AMOS": 5986. 'Amowc, aw-moce'; from H6006; burdensome; Amos, an Isr. prophet:--Amos.

Zec 14:5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

The LORD will roar from Zion

Amos 1:2 And he said, The LORD will roar from Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the habitations of the shepherds shall mourn, and the top of Carmel shall wither.

This verse sets the time frame of the book of Amos to the end of this earth age. At Jesus' return.

Joel 3:16 The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem; and the heavens and the earth shall shake: but the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

Zec 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

God pronounces judgment on eight locations

One:
Amos 1:3 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Damascus[1], and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have threshed Gilead with threshing instruments of iron:

1 "DAMASCUS": 1834. Dammeseq, dam-meh'-sek; or ` Duwmeseq, doo-meh'-sek; or Darmeseq, dar-meh'-sek; of for. or.; Damas-cus, a city of Syria:--Damascus.

Threshing a people. Being too harsh.

Amos 1:4 But I will send a fire into the house of Hazael[1], which shall devour the palaces of Benhadad[2].

1 "HAZAEL": 2371. Chaza'el, khaz-aw-ale'; or Chazah'el, khaz-aw-ale'; from H2372 and H410; God has seen; Chazael, a king of Syria:--Hazael.

2 "BENHADAD": 1130. Ben-Hadad, ben-had-ad'; from H1121 and H1908; son of Hadad; Ben-Hadad, the name of several Syrian kings:--Ben-hadad.

Amos 1:5 I will break also the bar of Damascus, and cut off the inhabitant from the plain of Aven, and him that holdeth the sceptre[1] from the house of Eden: and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith the LORD.

1 "SCEPTRE": 7626. shebet, shay'-bet; from an unused root prob. mean. to branch off, a scion, i.e. (lit.) a stick (for punishing, writing, fighting, ruling, walking, etc.) or (fig.) a clan:-- X correction, dart, rod, sceptre, staff, tribe.

Who holds the sceptre? The king, or whoever rules.

Two:
Amos 1:6 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they carried away captive the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom[1]:

In this verse we find that Edom is another name of Esau.

1 "EDOM": 123. 'Edom, ed-ome'; or (fully) 'Edowm, ed-ome'; from H122; red [see Gen. 25 : 25]; Edom, the elder twin-brother of Jacob; hence the region (Idumaea) occupied by him:--Edom, Edomites, Idumea.

Amos 1:7 But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, which shall devour the palaces thereof:

Amos 1:8 And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod[1], and him that holdeth the sceptre from Ashkelon[2], and I will turn mine hand against Ekron[3]: and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish, saith the Lord GOD.

1 "ASHDOD": 795. 'Ashdowd, ash-dode'; from H7703; ravager; Ashdod, a place in Pal.:--Ashdod.

2 "ASHKELON": 831. 'Ashqelown, ash-kel-one'; prob. from H8254 in the sense of weighing-place (i.e. mart); Ashkelon, a place in Pal.:--Ashkelon, Askalon.

3 "EKRON": 6138. 'Eqrown, ek-rone'; from H6131; eradication; Ekron, a place in Pal.:--Ekron.

6131. 'aqar, aw-kar'; a prim. root; to pluck up (espec. by the roots); spec. to hamstring; fig. to exterminate:--dig down, hough, pluck up, root up.

Three:
Amos 1:9 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Tyrus[1], and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom[2], and remembered not the brotherly covenant:

1 "TYRUS": 6865. Tsor, tsore; or Tsowr, tsore; the same as H6864; a rock; Tsor, a place in Pal.:--Tyre, Tyrus.

2 "EDOM": 123. 'Edom, ed-ome'; or (fully) 'Edowm, ed-ome'; from H122; red [see Gen. 25 : 25]; Edom, the elder twin-brother of Jacob; hence the region (Idumaea) occupied by him:--Edom, Edomites, Idumea.

Amos 1:10 But I will send a fire on the wall of Tyrus, which shall devour the palaces thereof.

Four:
Amos 1:11 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Edom, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he did pursue his brother with the sword, and did cast off all pity, and his anger did tear perpetually[1], and he kept his wrath for ever:

1 "PERPETUALLY": 5703. 'ad, ad; from H5710; prop. a (peremptory) terminus, i.e. (by impl.) duration, in the sense of advance or perpetuity (substantially as a noun, either with or without a prep.):--eternity, ever (-lasting, -more), old, perpetually, + world without end.

Edom's only brother was Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel by God Himself. Edom's descendants are in Russia of today. I think someday, Edom, (or Esau), will try to take his birthright back. See Eze 38 - 39.

Amos 1:12 But I will send a fire upon Teman[1], which shall devour the palaces of Bozrah[2].

1 "TEMAN": 8487. Teyman, tay-mawn'; or Teman, tay-mawn'; the same as H8486; Teman, the name of two Edomites, and of the region and desc. of one of them:--south, Teman.

2 "BOZRAH": 1224. Botsrah, bots-raw'; the same as H1223; Botsrah, a place in Edom:--Bozrah.

Five:
Amos 1:13 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of the children of Ammon[1], and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have ripped up the women with child of Gilead[2], that they might enlarge their border:

1 "AMMON": 5983. 'Ammown, am-mone'; from H5971; tribal, i.e. inbred; Ammon, a son of Lot; also his posterity and their country:--Ammon, Ammonites.

2 "GILEAD": 1568. Gil'ad, ghil-awd'; prob. from H1567; Gilad, a region E. of the Jordan; also the name of three Isr.:--Gilead, Gileadite.

Remember Lot's daughters.

Gen 19:32 Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

Gen 19:33 And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

Gen 19:34 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.

Gen 19:35 And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.

Gen 19:36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.

Gen 19:37 And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.

Gen 19:38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

Amos 1:14 But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah, and it shall devour the palaces thereof, with shouting in the day of battle, with a tempest in the day of the whirlwind:

Amos 1:15 And their king shall go into captivity, he and his princes together, saith the LORD.

Prophecy of The Bolshevik, (Communist),
Revolution of 1917

Six:
Amos 2:1 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Moab[1], and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because he burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime[2]:

1 "MOAB": 4124. Mow'ab, mo-awb; from a prol. form of the prep. pref. m- and H1; from (her [the mother's]) father; Moab, an incestuous son of Lot; also his territory and desc.:--Moab.

2 "LIME": 7875. siyd, seed; from H7874; lime (as boiling when slacked):--lime, plaister. .... Acid has a boiling action.

In 1918, the last king of Russia, (or Edom), and his family were murdered and their bodies put into something like lime. Remember, this is an end time prophecy.

From a recent historical article:
The bodies of Nicholas and his family, were soaked in acid and burned. With the exception of two of the children, (who were eventually identified in 2008), the remains of all the family and their retainers were found in 1991. DNA testing linked them to the British Royal Family, (namely Prince Phillip).;

Wonder what the atheistic Communist would think, if they should read this prophecy, of God Himself, over 2,600 years prior to the fact, foretelling that they would do this thing? See Revelation 8:8.

Amos 2:2 But I will send a fire upon Moab, and it shall devour the palaces of Kirioth: and Moab shall die with tumult, with shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet:

Remember, this is an end time prophecy.

2 Pet 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

Amos 2:3 And I will cut off the judge from the midst thereof, and will slay all the princes thereof with him, saith the LORD.

Seven:
Amos 2:4 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they have despised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked:

Isa 28:14 Wherefore hear the word of the LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

Isa 28:15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves:

Amos 2:5 But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.

Eight:
Amos 2:6 Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes;

Righteous? There's none righteous but ONE, and HE was sold for thirty pieces of silver.

Rom 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

Amos 2:7 That pant[1] after the dust of the earth on the head of the poor, and turn aside the way of the meek: and a man and his father will go in unto the same maid, to profane my holy name:

1 "PANT": 7602. sha'aph, shaw-af'; a prim. root; to inhale eagerly; fig. to covet; by impl. to be angry; also to hasten:--desire (earnestly), devour, haste, pant, snuff up, swallow up.

Satan and Adam went in unto the same woman.

Gen 3:14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

Amos 2:8 And they lay themselves down upon clothes laid to pledge by every altar, and they drink the wine of the condemned in the house of their god.

Note the little (g) in god.

Exo 22:26 If thou at all take thy neighbour's raiment to pledge, thou shalt deliver it unto him by that the sun goeth down:

Exo 22:27 For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin: wherein shall he sleep? and it shall come to pass, when he crieth unto me, that I will hear; for I am gracious.

Num 6:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When either man or woman shall separate themselves to vow a vow of a Nazarite, to separate themselves unto the LORD:

Num 6:3 He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried.

Num 6:4 All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree, from the kernels even to the husk.

Num 6:5 All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.

Amos 2:9 Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots from beneath.

Amos 2:10 Also I brought you up from the land of Egypt, and led you forty years through the wilderness, to possess the land of the Amorite.

Just look at all God did for us. Still we gave him trouble.

Amos 2:11 And I raised up of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. Is it not even thus, O ye children of Israel? saith the LORD.

Amos 2:12 But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink; and commanded the prophets, saying, Prophesy not.

They're people that don't like to hear the word of God.

Isa 30:9 That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:

Isa 30:10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

Amos 2:13 Behold, I am pressed under you, as a cart is pressed that is full of sheaves.

Don't think that God can't handle the load. He knows how to get rid of dead weight. Just make sure when the end time rolls around, that you're not part of that dead weight.

Amos 2:14 Therefore the flight[1] shall perish from the swift, and the strong[2] shall not strengthen his force[3], neither shall the mighty deliver himself:

1 "FLIGHT": 4498. manowc, maw-noce'; from H5127; a retreat (lit. or fig.); abstr. a fleeing:-- X apace, escape, way to flee, flight, refuge.

2 "STRONG": 2389. chazaq, khaw-zawk'; from H2388; strong (usu. in a bad sense, hard, bold, violent):--harder, hottest, + impudent, loud, mighty, sore, stiff [-hearted], strong (-er).

3 "FORCE": 3581. koach, ko'-akh; or (Dan. 11 : 6) kowach, ko'-akh; from an unused root mean. to be firm; vigor, lit. (force, in a good or a bad sense) or fig. (capacity, means, produce); also (from its hardiness) a large lizard:--ability, able, chameleon, force, fruits, might, power (-ful), strength, substance, wealth.

These people that think they have an escape, (rapture), are in for a big surprise on this day. That strong one, (Satan), can't deliver any in that day. Though he's disguised as an angel of light, (chameleon), he can't help you. Note Strong's meaning of the word force. Satan, like a chameleon, may change himself on the outside, but not the inside.

2 Cor 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed, (disguised), into an angel of light.

Amos 2:15 Neither shall he stand that handleth the bow; and he that is swift of foot shall not deliver himself: neither shall he that rideth the horse deliver himself.

Amos 2:16 And he that is courageous among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day, saith the LORD.

Only those who remain loyal to Jesus Christ in that day, will overcome at that time.

God to Israel, "You only have I known"

Amos 3:1 Hear this word that the LORD hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying,

Amos 3:2 You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.

God chose this certain people. He expects us to do his will. Do you spank anybody else's kids? No. You might do something, to someone, if they were going to harm yours. But other than that, No.

Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

There must be an agreed upon, (designated place and time), for two to meet, in order to walk together. In God's word, is the place, and often, is the time, for you to meet with the Lord.

God, through Amos, ask seven good questions

Amos 3:4 Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing?

There's nothing to roar, (brag), about, if the hunt wasn't successful.

Amos 3:5 Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin[1] is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all?

1 "GIN": 4170. mowqesh, mo-kashe'; or moqesh, mo-kashe'; from H3369; a noose (for catching animals) (lit. or fig.); by impl. a hook (for the nose):--be ensnared, gin, (is) snare (-d), trap.

Amos 3:6 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?

The sound of the trumpet usually meant danger, (war).

God will do nothing, until
He reveals it first, through His prophets

Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

God has foretold all things. It's in the Book. The Bible.

Amos 3:8 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? the Lord GOD hath spoken, who can but prophesy?

God spoke to the prophets. They wrote it down. It's called the Bible.

Amos 3:9 Publish in the palaces at Ashdod, and in the palaces in the land of Egypt, and say, Assemble yourselves upon the mountains of Samaria, and behold the great tumults in the midst thereof, and the oppressed in the midst thereof.

Amos 3:10 For they know not to do right, saith the LORD, who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.

Amos 3:11 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; An adversary[1] there shall be even round about the land; and he shall bring down thy strength from thee, and thy palaces shall be spoiled.

1 "ADVERSARY": 6862. tsar, tsar; or tsar, tsawr; from H6887; narrow; (as a noun) a tight place (usually fig., i.e. trouble); also a pebble (as in H6864); (trans.) an opponent (as crowding):--adversary, afflicted (-tion), anguish, close, distress, enemy, flint, foe, narrow, small, sorrow, strait, tribulation, trouble.

Amos 3:12 Thus saith the LORD; As the shepherd taketh out of the mouth of the lion two legs, or a piece of an ear; so shall the children of Israel be taken out that dwell in Samaria in the corner of a bed, and in Damascus in a couch.

Amos 3:13 Hear ye, and testify in the house of Jacob, saith the Lord GOD, the God of hosts,

Great houses shall have an end

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.

Amos 3:15 And I will smite the winter house with the summer house; and the houses of ivory shall perish, and the great houses shall have an end, saith the LORD.

With hooks and fishhooks

Amos 4:1 Hear this word, ye kine of Bashan, that are in the mountain of Samaria, which oppress the poor, which crush the needy, which say to their masters, Bring, and let us drink.

Amos 4:2 The Lord GOD hath sworn by his holiness, that, lo, the days shall come upon you, that he will take you away with hooks, and your posterity with fishhooks.

When Jesus returns, He'll put an end to all this nonsense.

Jer 16:16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.

Amos 4:3 And ye shall go out at the breaches, every cow at that which is before her; and ye shall cast them into the palace, saith the LORD.

Though God has punished, Israel still doesn't repent

Amos 4:4 Come to Bethel, and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your sacrifices every morning, and your tithes after three years[1]:

1 "YEARS": 3117. yowm, yome; from an unused root mean. to be hot; a day (as the warm hours), whether lit. (from sunrise to sunset, or from one sunset to the next), or fig. (a space of time defined by an associated term), [often used adv.]:--age, + always, + chronicles, continually (-ance), daily, ([birth-], each, to) day, (now a, two) days (agone), + elder, X end, + evening, + (for) ever (-lasting, -more), X full, life, as (so) long as (. . . live), (even) now, + old, + outlived, + perpetually, presently, + remaineth, X required, season, X since, space, then, (process of) time, + as at other times, + in trouble, weather, (as) when, (a, the, within a) while (that), X whole (+ age), (full) year (-ly), + younger. ..... Green's Interlinear also states day instead of years.

Amos 4:5 And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, and proclaim and publish the free offerings: for this liketh you, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Amos 4:6 And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

God can make us go hungry and some still wont turn to Him.

Amos 4:7 And also I have withholden the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.

Amos 4:7: Mat 5:45 (Jesus talking). 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 sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Amos 4:8 So two or three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

Amos 4:9 I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased, the palmerworm[1] devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

1 "PALMERWORM": 1501. gazam, gaw-zawm'; from an unused root mean. to devour; a kind of locust:--palmer-worm.

Amos 4:10 I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

Amos 4:11 I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

Prepare to meet thy God, O Israel

Amos 4:12 Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.

For those who don't return to God, the meeting might no be so pleasant.

Amos 4:13 For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, and createth the wind, and declareth unto man what is his thought, that maketh the morning darkness, and treadeth upon the high places of the earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, is his name.

Amos 5:1 Hear ye this word which I take up against you, even a lamentation, O house of Israel.

Amos 5:2 The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no more rise: she is forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise her up.

Is Amos talking about the five foolish virgins, spoken of in Mat. 25:1 thru 13?

Mat 25:1 (Jesus talking). Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Mat 25:2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

Amos 5:3 For thus saith the Lord GOD; The city that went out by a thousand shall leave an hundred, and that which went forth by an hundred shall leave ten, to the house of Israel.

Ten percent.

Seek ye me and live
Don't seek me in Bethel, (the house of God)
Bethel, (the house of God), shall come to nothing

Amos 5:4 For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live:

Without the LORD, there is no life.

Amos 5:5 But seek not Bethel[1], nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beersheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nought[2].

1 "BETHEL": 1008. Beyth-'El, bayth-ale'; from H1004 and H410; house of God; Beth-El, a place in Pal.:--Beth-el.

2 "NOUGHT": 205. 'aven, aw'-ven; from an unused root perh. mean. prop. to pant (hence to exert oneself, usually in vain; to come to naught); strictly nothingness; also trouble, vanity, wickedness; spec. an idol:--affliction, evil, false, idol, iniquity, mischief, mourners (-ing), naught, sorrow, unjust,

What would make God want to leave His house and turn His churches to nothingness?

Ezek 8:6 He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations.

Most of the Christian Churches in the end time, I think will fall for the false Christ. Making them churches of Satan. See Rev. 2:9 and Rev 3:9. That would certainly bring the House of God to nothing, (or naught).

Josh 4:19 And the people came up out of Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and encamped in Gilgal, in the east border of Jericho.

Josh 4:20 And those twelve stones, which they took out of Jordan, did Joshua pitch in Gilgal.

Amos 5:6 Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel.

If God builds a fire, no mortal man can put it out.

Judgment to wormwood, (poison)

Amos 5:7 Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth,

It seems our court systems of today, (21st. century), are full of people doing this.

Seek the one Who made the stars

Amos 5:8 Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name:

At any time, we can turn to God, the Creator of all things. He's quick to forgive.

Amos 5:9 That strengtheneth the spoiled against the strong, so that the spoiled shall come against the fortress.

If God is on your side, you have nothing to worry about.

Amos 5:10 They hate him that rebuketh in the gate, and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly.

You want to be hated? Just become a Christian. I mean a real Christian.

Israel's many transgressions and mighty sins

Amos 5:11 Forasmuch therefore as your treading is upon the poor, and ye take from him burdens of wheat: ye have built houses of hewn stone, but ye shall not dwell in them; ye have planted pleasant vineyards, but ye shall not drink wine of them.

Take from him burdens of wheat? Overtaxed? God knows and keeps a record of all that we do. Those that do these sort of things needn't think they'll get away with it. See Psalms 37:16 thru 22.

Amos 5:12 For I know your manifold transgressions, and your mighty[1] sins: they afflict the just, they take a bribe, and they turn aside the poor in the gate from their right.

1 "MIGHTY": 6099. 'atsuwm, aw-tsoom'; or 'atsum, aw-tsoom'; pass. part. of H6105; powerful (spec. a paw); by impl. numerous:-- + feeble, great, mighty, must, strong.

Amos 5:13 Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time.

In that time? The end times. As the old saying goes. Silence is golden.

Amos 5:14 Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken.

Amos 5:15 Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.

Amos 5:16 Therefore the LORD, the God of hosts, the Lord, saith thus; Wailing shall be in all streets; and they shall say in all the highways, Alas! alas! and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and such as are skilful of lamentation to wailing.

Read Rev 18. It's at the very end of time.

Amos 5:17 And in all vineyards shall be wailing: for I will pass through thee, saith the LORD.

When God passes through, things happen.

The Day of the LORD!

Amos 5:18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.

There's no escape for the enemies of God.

Amos 5:19 As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him.

Amos 5:20 Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

God's people are children of light. They're not of the night.

1 Th 5:5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Amos 5:21 I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.

Amos 5:22 Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.

God don't even want to hear their singing

Amos 5:23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.

When Satan shows up, pretending to be Jesus, and most of the Christian community follows him, they'll be singing to the wrong Jesus. They'll be worshiping the wrong Messiah. No wonder Jesus will not be listening to them. Remember the five foolish virgins!

Amos 5:24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.

It's hard to escape a mighty rushing water.

Amos 5:25 Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?

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.

Even after witnessing all sorts of miracles from God, they still worshipped other gods. People of today are the same as people back then.

Amos 5:27 Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.

Our captivity in the end generation could be Mystery Babylon.

Descriptions of how good Israel has it

Amos 6:1 Woe to them that are at ease[1] in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came!

1 "EASE": 7600. sha'anan, shah-an-awn'; from H7599; secure; in a bad sense, haughty:--that is at ease, quiet, tumult. Comp. H7946.

Gonna put your trust in a mountain? Trust the creation and not the Creator?

Amos 6:2 Pass ye unto Calneh, and see; and from thence go ye to Hamath the great: then go down to Gath of the Philistines: be they better than these kingdoms? or their border greater than your border?

Amos 6:3 Ye that put far away the evil day, and cause the seat of violence to come near;

You gonna put the Lord's coming out of your mind? It ain't gonna happen?

Amos 6:4 That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall;

Gonna live the, G-o-o-d life?

Amos 6:5 That chant to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of music, like David;

Remember, God wont be listening to their songs.

Amos 6:6 That drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chief ointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.

No compassion at all.

Amos 6:7 Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive, and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed.

In the end time, the captivating one, (Satan), is coming first.

Amos 6:8 The Lord GOD hath sworn by himself, saith the LORD the God of hosts, I abhor the excellency[1] of Jacob, and hate his palaces: therefore will I deliver up the city with all that is therein.

1 "EXCELLENCY": 1347. ga'own, gaw-ohn'; from H1342; the same as H1346:--arrogancy, excellency (-lent), majesty, pomp, pride, proud, swelling

Get a little prideful like Satan and see what happens.

Amos 6:9 And it shall come to pass, if there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die.

We may not mention of the name of the LORD

Amos 6:10 And a man's uncle shall take him up, and he that burneth[1] him, to bring out the bones out of the house, and shall say unto him that is by the sides of the house, Is there yet any with thee? and he shall say, No. Then shall he say, Hold thy tongue: for we may not make mention of the name of the LORD.

1 "BURNETH": 5635. caraph, saw-raf'; a prim. root; to cremate, i.e. to be (near) of kin (such being privileged to kindle the pyre):--burn.

Today, (2006), it appears some are trying to remove God from our very vocabulary.

Update 2008. Hold thy tongue: for we may not make mention of the name of the LORD??? ........ Just this year in the state of Virginia, our State Police Chaplains were told they could not pray in the name of Jesus.

September, 2008

Source: The Richmond Times-Dispatch:

At least five members of the Virginia State Police chaplains program have resigned after being told they must abstain from praying in the name of Jesus or Christ during department-sanctioned events involving the public.

Concerned about offending people of other faiths, state police Superintendent W. Steven Flaherty recently directed the agency's 17 chaplains to begin delivering neutral or non-denominational prayers at events such as trooper graduation ceremonies and its annual memorial service for fallen officers...

Their cause has been taken up by Del. Charles W. Carrico Sr., R-Grayson, who has contacted the Virginia Attorney General's Office for counsel and is launching a Web site -- InJesusNameIPray.com -- in a push to have the decision overturned.

"It's a separation of Jesus and state, which offends me greatly," he said. "What we have here is an attack on the name of Jesus, on the name of Christ. And I'm not going to sit back and just let it happen."

It stated in verse 9, "It shall come to pass". I believe it has.

Amos 6:11 For, behold, the LORD commandeth, and he will smite the great house with breaches, and the little house with clefts.

Amos 6:12 Shall horses run upon the rock? will one plow there with oxen? for ye have turned judgment into gall, and the fruit of righteousness into hemlock:

Amos 6:13 Ye which rejoice in a thing of nought, which say, Have we not taken to us horns by our own strength?

It appears that today we think we do it all, giving God absolutely no credit.

Amos 6:14 But, behold, I will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel, saith the LORD the God of hosts; and they shall afflict you from the entering in of Hemath unto the river of the wilderness.

It appears God has had to chastise His children, almost continuously.

1 Chr 2:55 And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites[1] that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab.

1 "KENITES": 7017. Qeyniy, kay-nee'; or Qiyniy (H1 Chron. 2 : 55), kee-nee'; patron. from H7014; a Kenite or member of the tribe of Kajin:--Kenite.

7014. Qayin, kah'-yin; the same as H7013 (with a play upon the affinity to H7069); Kajin, the name of the first child, also of a place in Pal., and of an Oriental tribe:--Cain, Kenite (-s).

Grasshoppers, (or locust), fire, and a plumbline

Amos 7:1 Thus hath the Lord GOD showed unto me; and, behold, he formed grasshoppers[1] in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth; and, lo, it was the latter growth after the king's mowings.

1 "GRASSHOPPERS": 1462. gowb, gobe; from H1461; the locust (from its grubbing as a larve):--grasshopper, X great.

Read the book of Joel, and Revelations chapter nine, for a good study on grasshoppers, (locust).

Amos 7:2 And it came to pass, that when they had made an end of eating the grass of the land, then I said, O Lord GOD, forgive, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.

Amos 7:3 The LORD repented for this: It shall not be, saith the LORD.

Amos 7:4 Thus hath the Lord GOD showed unto me: and, behold, the Lord GOD called to contend by fire, and it devoured the great deep, and did eat up a part.

2 Pet 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

2 Pet 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Amos 7:5 Then said I, O Lord GOD, cease, I beseech thee: by whom shall Jacob arise? for he is small.

Amos 7:6 The LORD repented for this: This also shall not be, saith the Lord GOD.

Amos 7:7 Thus he showed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand.

Amos 7:8 And the LORD said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumbline. Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more:

I guess God will have to do something like this to straighten out His people.

Isa 28:17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet[1]: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.

1 "PLUMMET": 4949. mishqeleth, mish-keh'-leth'; or mishqoleth, mish-ko'-leth; fem. of H4948 or H4947; a weight, i.e. a plummet (with line attached):--plummet.

Isa 28:18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

Amos 7:9 And the high places of Isaac shall be desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.

The high places were usually place of pagan worship.

Num 22:41 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Balak took Balaam, and brought him up into the high places of Baal, that thence he might see the utmost part of the people.

Amos 7:10 Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, Amos hath conspired against thee in the midst of the house of Israel: the land is not able to bear all his words.

Amos 7:11 For thus Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land.

1 Ki 12:32 And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made.

1 Ki 13:33 After this thing Jeroboam returned not from his evil way, but made again of the lowest of the people priests of the high places: whosoever would, he consecrated him, and he became one of the priests of the high places.

Amos 7:12 Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there:

The king tells Amos to prophecy no more

Amos 7:13 But prophesy not again any more at Bethel: for it is the king's chapel, and it is the king's court.

The truth is a hard pill for some to swallow.

Amos replies with words direct from God

Amos 7:14 Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycamore fruit:

Amos 7:15 And the LORD took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.

God can use anyone He so chooses.

Amos 7:16 Now therefore hear thou the word of the LORD: Thou sayest, Prophesy not against Israel, and drop not thy word against the house of Isaac.

Amos 7:17 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.

We should be more like Amos. Don't let the big whigs snow you.

Jer 28:14 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; I have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field also.

The end is come

Amos 8:1 Thus hath the Lord GOD showed unto me: and behold a basket of summer fruit.

Amos 8:2 And he said, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the LORD unto me, The end is come upon my people of Israel; I will not again pass by them any more.

It's harvest time. Read Matthew 13, concerning the parable of the tares. The harvest time is the end of the world.

Ezek 7:2 Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land.

Ezek 7:3 Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations.

Jer 24:1 The LORD showed me, and, behold, two baskets of figs were set before the temple of the LORD, after that Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon had carried away captive Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, and the princes of Judah, with the carpenters and smiths, from Jerusalem, and had brought them to Babylon.

Jer 24:2 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.

Amos 8:3 And the songs of the temple shall be howlings in that day, saith the Lord GOD: there shall be many dead bodies in every place; they shall cast them forth with silence.

Going to be a lot of sad singing on that day.

Amos 5:23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.

For those who sell a little for a lot

Amos 8:4 Hear this, O ye that swallow up the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail,

Amos 8:5 Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the ephah small, and the shekel great, and falsifying the balances by deceit?

Selling a little for a lot. They have ways now to fluff up something to make it look like a lot. But it's just a lot of air.

Amos 8:6 That we may buy the poor for silver, and the needy for a pair of shoes; yea, and sell the refuse of the wheat?

Rip the shirt right off your back. Most of our breads are not made from the whole grain of the wheat, but the junk portion. Bleach it out and make it look good. Make it white and P-u-r-e looking.

God will never forget

Amos 8:7 The LORD hath sworn by the excellency of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their works.

They think they're gonna get away with this? Remember Psalms 37:20.

Psa 37:20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

Amos 8:8 Shall not the land tremble for this, and every one mourn that dwelleth therein? and it shall rise up wholly as a flood; and it shall be cast out and drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.

Psa 18:7 Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.

Heb 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven.

Hag 2:7 And I will shake all nations, and the desire of all nations shall come: and I will fill this house with glory, saith the LORD of hosts.

Job 38:13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?

God will darken the earth in the clear day

Amos 8:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:

Isa 13:9 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

Isa 13:10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

Amos 8:10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; and I will bring up sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness upon every head; and I will make it as the mourning of an only son, and the end thereof as a bitter day.

A famine for the hearing of the word of God

Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:

This prophesy has come about. Where can one hear the true word of God today? Hardly anywhere.

Ezek 7:26 Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the ancients.

Ezek 5:16 When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread:

Ezek 5:17 So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall bereave thee; and pestilence and blood shall pass through thee; and I will bring the sword upon thee. I the LORD have spoken it.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Deu 32:24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.

Amos 8:12 And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.

It appears to be getting worse and worse today. Today being (2006). It's like we in the U.S.A. are beyond running to and fro. We're bringing all sorts of religions into our country. I know this is the land of freedom of religion, but it appears that other religions don't want Christians to have any freedom of worship.

Amos 8:13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst.

Jesus talking:
Mat 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Mat 25:2 And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.

Amos 8:14 They that swear by the sin of Samaria, and say, Thy god, O Dan, liveth; and, The manner of Beersheba liveth; even they shall fall, and never rise up again.

There's no escaping God

Amos 9:1 I saw the Lord standing upon the altar: and he said, Smite the lintel of the door, that the posts may shake: and cut them in the head, all of them; and I will slay the last of them with the sword: he that fleeth of them shall not flee away, and he that escapeth of them shall not be delivered.

Amos 9:2 Though they dig into hell, thence shall mine hand take them; though they climb up to heaven, thence will I bring them down:

Psa 139:8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

Amos 9:3 And though they hide themselves in the top of Carmel, I will search and take them out thence; and though they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea, thence will I command the serpent, and he shall bite them:

Amos 9:4 And though they go into captivity before their enemies, thence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them: and I will set mine eyes upon them for evil, and not for good.

No one can get away from God. If He has your number, look out.

Amos 9:5 And the Lord GOD of hosts is he that toucheth the land, and it shall melt, and all that dwell therein shall mourn: and it shall rise up wholly like a flood; and shall be drowned, as by the flood of Egypt.

Micah 1:4 And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place.

Amos 9:6 It is he that buildeth his stories in the heaven, and hath founded his troop in the earth; he that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name.

Psa 104:10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

Psa 104:11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.

Psa 104:13 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.

Amos 9:7 Are ye not as children of the Ethiopians unto me, O children of Israel? saith the LORD. Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt? and the Philistines from Caphtor, and the Syrians from Kir?

God's eyes are on the sinful kingdoms

Amos 9:8 Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD.

Look out sinful world. God has His eyes on you.

Jer 30:11 For I am with thee, saith the LORD, to save thee: though I make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee: but I will correct thee in measure, and will not leave thee altogether unpunished.

God will gather Israel from all nations

Amos 9:9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.

God knows His people, and how to gather them and not let them fall in the end.

Amos 9:10 All the sinners[1] of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.

1 "SINNERS": 2400. chatta', khat-taw'; intens. from H2398; a criminal, or one accounted guilty:--offender, sinful, sinner.

Remember Psalms 37:20.

Amos 9:11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

That Day is the Day of the Lord. The one thousand year reign of Christ.

Amos 9:12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen[1], which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this.

1 "HEATHEN": 1471. gowy, go'ee; rarely (short.) goy, go'-ee; appar. from the same root as H1465 (in the sense of massing); a foreign nation; hence a Gentile; also (fig.) a troop of animals, or a flight of locusts:--Gentile, heathen, nation, people.

Acts 15:16 After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:

Acts 15:17 That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.

Amos 9:13 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.

There'll be plenty for all in the eternity.

Lev 26:5 And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.

Amos 9:14 And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.

I think we will rebuild this earth. Clean up our mess. See Isa.61:4.

Isa 61:4 And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.

Home at last

Amos 9:15 And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.

Finally, Home at last.

1 Chr 17:9 Also I will ordain a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, and they shall dwell in their place, and shall be moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness waste them any more, as at the beginning,

Jer 24:6 For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up.

Thanks, for allowing me, to share this with you. Remember, to always, study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

In His Word,
