PSA222 Amos 4 – The Terrible Calamity, The Glorious Kingdom mp3

Amos Series 4

In this message, we conclude our series on Amos. Amos sees a basket of ripe fruit, symbolizing the fact that Israel was ripe for punishment. Their feasts will become mourning, and their music will be replaced by howling. At that time, there would be a famine, not of food, but of hearing the words of the LORD. There will be no escape from the coming calamity: not in Sheol, nor in heaven, nor on top of Mount Carmel, nor at the bottom of the sea. Yet there is an ultimate solution: The Kingdom of God, when they will all be planted in the land.

PSA221 Amos 3 – Nobles, Priests, and Punishments mp3

Amos Series 3

In this message, we consider the messenger who prepares the way before the LORD. He urges Israel to return to Him. They have robbed Him in tithes and offerings. Does this mean we should give 10% of our income to a church? They have spoken harshly against God, claiming it is useless to serve Him. Those who feared the LORD discussed what He had said among themselves, and the LORD promised that someday He would make them His jewels.

PSA220 Amos 2 – Punishment and Woe mp3

Amos Sermon Series 2

In this message, Amos speaks against the noblewomen of Israel who encouraged their husbands in the wicked things they did. He speaks against the hypocritical actions of the people of Israel. He has brought five punishments on them for their sin, yet they have not submitted, so He is preparing one, final punishment. Amos makes a lamentation for Israel. The population of the land is going to be decreased by 90%. To seek the LORD would be to live, to seek the golden calves leads to captivity and destruction. They love oppression, and hate righteous judges. They desired the day of the LORD, but they did not seem to realize that that day would bring punishment on all of them.
