  • Seek The Lord, And Ye Shall Live.

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Oct 3, 2021
    based on 2 ratings

    Setting ourselves up for a new infusion of Grace.

    SEEK THE LORD, AND YE SHALL LIVE. Amos 5:6-7; Amos 5:10-15. Amos is already lamenting the doom of the northern kingdom of Israel (Amos 5:1), bewailing the fact that she will ‘no more rise’ because ‘there is none to raise her up’ (Amos 5:2); but he immediately hints that there may yet be a more

  • The Prophet From Tekoa Series

    Contributed by Freddy Fritz on Jul 8, 2022
    based on 1 rating

    Amos 1:1-2; 7:10-17 shows us a call to speak for God.

    Scripture Today I am beginning a study in the book of Amos in a sermon series I am calling, “A Prophet for Today.” I hope that we shall see how relevant this prophet of God is for us today in a sermon titled, “The Prophet from Tekoa.” Let us read about the prophet from Tekoa in Amos 1:1-2; more

  • A Basket Of Ripe Summer Fruit

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Jul 7, 2019
    based on 4 ratings

    Seek God, do justice - before it is too late.

    A BASKET OF RIPE SUMMER FRUIT. Amos 8:1-12. This vision and its interpretation is based in a pun: the Hebrew word for “Summer fruit” sounds almost identical with the word translated “the end” (Amos 8:1-2). Read Amos 4:6-11 for a litany of the temporal judgments which the LORD laid upon more

  • The Plumb-Line Test.

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Jun 2, 2018
    based on 3 ratings

    Aligning ourselves with God, as opposed to going against His Word.

    THE PLUMB-LINE TEST. Amos 7:7-17. When I was at High School, we were building a garage. We were taught how to mix mortar, lay bricks, and to check everything was lined up straight with a plumb-line. The work had been begun by those of the Year above mine: but in mid-January 1968 ‘Hurricane more

  • Bethel: Where The Prophet Was Told To Leave Town!

    Contributed by Jonathan Spurlock on Sep 3, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    Many things happened at Bethel, including this visit from one of God's true prophets who came face to face with the priest of that city. God's prophet preached--but what happened afterwards?

    Introduction: God’s prophets seldom if ever had an easy time of it. Consider Nathan, who had the duty to inform David that what he had done with Bathsheba was sin. David was king and could have said only one word and the result would have been one less prophet! David’s own great-great-grandson Asa more

  • A Warning Against Complacency

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Aug 7, 2019

    Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria.

    A WARNING AGAINST COMPLACENCY. Amos 6:1-7. Amos was a farmer from Tekoa, to the south of Jerusalem (Amos 1:1). The LORD called Amos to ‘Go, prophesy to My people Israel’ (Amos 7:15). The prophet’s ministry was thereafter directed mainly to the ten tribes of the northern kingdom of Israel, more

  • A Prophet Challenges The System

    Contributed by John Williams Iii on Mar 19, 2002
    based on 115 ratings

    This sermon addresses the issue of how prosperity does not always mean that God apporves of what is going on with those in positions of power.

    A PROPHET CHALLENGES THE SYSTEM Text: Amos 7:7-17 One of the most intriguing sights in all the world is that of the leaning Tower Of Pisa in Tuscany, Italy. It was begun in 1174 and completed in 1350. It stands 179 feet high and leans some 16 and a half feet out of the perpendicular as of more

  • Five Visions Series

    Contributed by Freddy Fritz on Feb 9, 2023
    based on 1 rating

    In Amos 7:1-9; 8:1-9:10, we learn about God's judgment on those who profess allegiance to God.

    Introduction Earlier this week, the President of the United States of America gave his State of the Union Address to a joint session of the US Congress. The State of the Union Address generally includes reports on the nation’s budget, economy, agenda, progress, and achievements. At the same more

  • Luxury And Laziness.

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on May 9, 2022
    based on 2 ratings

    There is the very real possibility that religious people are trusting in their religion, rather than in the true and living God.

    LUXURY AND LAZINESS. Amos 6:1a, Amos 6:4-7. Amos was a farmer from Tekoa, to the south of Jerusalem (Amos 1:1). The LORD called Amos to ‘Go, prophesy to My people Israel’ (Amos 7:15). The prophet’s ministry was thereafter directed mainly to the ten tribes of the northern kingdom of Israel, more

  • Justice And Righteousness Better Than Rituals

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Sep 18, 2020
    based on 4 ratings

    The danger of worship without mercy.

    JUSTICE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS BETTER THAN RITUALS. Amos 5:18-24. Historically, Israel had split into two kingdoms shortly after the death of king David’s son, king Solomon. The ten tribes of the north rejected both the dynasty of David, and the worship of the Jerusalem temple, and set up their more

    Contributed by Rodney Fry on Oct 25, 2009
    based on 10 ratings

    In this third and final lesson on Amos, we will... a. Focus our attention on the last three chapters which contain... 1) Five "Visions" of Amos 2) An "interlude" in which Amos defends his prophetic role 3) A closing glimpse of a b

    "STUDIES IN THE MINOR PROPHETS" Amos - The Country Prophet (7:1-9:15) INTRODUCTION 1. In the first two studies on the book of Amos, we briefly surveyed... a. The "Oracles" of Amos, concerning sin and judgment of eight nations (ch. 1-2) b. The "Sermons" of Amos, more

  • What Does It Mean To Be A Man Of God?

    Contributed by Chris Swanson on Apr 19, 2023

    The people of Israel had become careless and complacent. God called a man from a small country town to prophesy judgment and preach repentance. This man submitted to God's call to go and prophesy unto Israel.

    The affluent people of Israel were enjoying their life of luxury and prosperity. They had become careless, complacent, mistreating poor people, and selling them into servitude. Before long, Israel would be vanquished by Assyria, and the rich would become slaves. Then in walks a God called man from more

  • Aim To Be An Amos, Not An Amaziah

    Contributed by Daniel Habben on Jul 26, 2009
    based on 6 ratings

    This world is filled with Amaziahs. They’re people (including ourselves) who think they can have spirituality without the light of God’s Word.

    If you could be any person from the Bible, who would it be? Would you like to be Adam or Eve barefooting around the Garden of Eden with no fear of stepping on a rusty nail or a thorn? Wouldn’t it be an experience to play with a full-grown lion the way you would a kitten? Both would have been more

  • You Can't Have One Without The Other! (A Sermon On The Book Of Amos)

    Contributed by David Smith on Nov 18, 2007
    based on 15 ratings

    People says to me, "Dave, as a Christian I am not interested in politics", and I can say to them in all honesty, "neither am I". ...

    I sorta promised someone in the parish that I’d choose a more cheery passage next time I preached. “Come unto me all ye who labour and are heavy laden” was suggested - a message of encouragement and hope. This is not that sermon. Inspired by our set lectionary readings, for better or worse, I have more
