The Prophet Amos!


Book Introduction - Amos 

B.C. 776-763

Amos, a Jew, but prophesying  in the northern kingdom exercised his ministry during the reign of Jeroboam II, an able but idolatrous king who brought his kingdom to the zenith of its power.

 Nothing could seem more improbable than the fulfilment of Amos' warnings; yet within fifty years the kingdom was utterly destroyed.

 The vision of Amos is, however, wider than the northern kingdom, including the whole "house of Jacob."

Amos is in four parts:

1.    Judgments on the cities surrounding Palestine  Amos 1:1 - 2:3 

2.    Judgements on Judah and Israel Amos 2:4-16

3.    Jehovah's controversy with "the whole family" of Jacob Amos 3:1 - 9:10

4.    The future glory of the Davidic kingdom  Amos 9:11-15

Israel has been returned from every part of the World as God Said they would.

Look up Jesus is coming!
