Amos 8 - AMP

2 And He said, Amos, what do you see? And I said, A basket of summer fruit. Then said the Lord to me, The end has come upon My people Israel; I will not pass by and spare them any more. 3 And the songs of the temple shall become wailings in that day, says the Lord God. The dead bodies shall be many; in every place they shall be cast forth in silence. 4 Hear this, O you who would swallow up and trample down the needy, even to make the poor of the land to fail and come to an end, 5 Saying, When will the New Moon festival be past that we may sell grain? And the Sabbath that we may offer wheat for sale, making the ephah small and the shekel great and falsifying the scales by deceit, 6 That we may buy the poor for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals; yes, and sell the refuse of the wheat ? 7 The Lord has sworn by the Glory and Pride of Jacob, Surely I will never forget any of their deeds. 8 Shall not the land tremble on this account, and everyone mourn who dwells in it? Yes, it shall rise like the river , all of it, and it shall be tossed about and sink back again to normal level, as does the Nile of Egypt. 9 And in that day, says the Lord God, I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the broad daylight. 10 And I will turn your feasts into mourning and all your songs into lamentation, and I will cause sackcloth to be put upon all loins and baldness shall come on every head; and I will make that time as the mourning for an only son, and the end of it as a bitter day. 11 Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord God, when I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but for hearing the words of the Lord. 12 And 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 , but shall not find it. 13 In that day shall the fair virgins and young men faint for thirst. 14 Those who swear by Ashimah or the sin of Samaria and say, By the life of your god , O Dan! and , By the life of the way of Beersheba, they shall fall and rise no more.

Spiritual Famine
Shared by: Robert Leroe on Aug, 2015
Summary: When we neglect God and His word, when we turn to God-substitutes, the result is spiritual dryness. When we want God to leave us alone, He just might. Amos tells what it will be like to live without a prophetic voice.

When Believers Fall
Shared by: Chuck Sligh on Jun, 2015
Summary: Simon the Sorcerer, contrary to many theologian's views, was a true believer. But being immature, he was seduced to go back to the old ways of thinking. It took a truth-telling believer (Peter) to set him straight and tell him the path to forgiveness.
