Sermons on Amos
Amos is sent by God to tell His people to straighten up or face judgement.
What if we believed we were sinners guilty before a perfect God? Not slightly better or slightly worse than the next person but equally guilty with all of humanity? How would this affect GCM (Gospel, Community, Mission)?
Closing Your Compass - What happens when you ignore God.
The day of the Lord. This is the first time chronologically in the Bible that this phrase occurs. Amos was one of the earlier prophets and one of only a few to prophesy to the northern kingdom. Here we see that there seems to be a disconnect with what the people believe the day of the Lord will be about and what Amos is telling them about. The people desire it, but Amos is telling them that they don’t want this. He says that instead of this being a day of light (what they anticipate) it will be darkness. Amos goes so far as to bring in this lovely little analogy in vs 19. Read vs 19. Some translations of this passage make it more connected so it’s more like this man escaped from lion to run into a bear and escaped from that to make it home and then get bit by a snake. Either way you read this it seems a bit…hopeless. Vs 20 confirms that hopelessness by calling gloom with no brightness in it. Gloom with no brightness…fun stuff.
House Of Cards - The danger of living a fantasy faith
Amos 4:1-5 Introducing these 5 verses and breaking them down a bit. These women forgot their role. They are not taking care of their husbands, children or serving and loving God. They have become selfish, obsessed with fashion, are lazy and disrespectful to their husbands. They are cows and being called a cow is never a good name for women. Pride over humility, disrespect over submissiveness. Genesis 3:15 Understanding the curse of the woman. Cows are predicted.
