  • A Basket Of Ripe Summer Fruit

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Jul 6, 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

    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.

    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

  • 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

    AN INDICTMENT AGAINST THE UNSCRUPULOUS. Amos 8:4-7. You trample upon the needy and make the poor of the land fail (Amos 8:4; cf. Amos 5:11). Your religious observances are hypocritical, and you cheat your customers with false weights and measures (Amos 8:5). You enslave the poor and needy more

  • Amos: The Shepherd Prophet Series

    Contributed by Fred Sigle on Jan 23, 2017

    If you are being mistreated and taken advantage of by those who think themselves superior, then Amos is the prophet that you want in your corner. He is known as the "Champion of the Poor."

    A. Do you ever read the “TOP TEN WORST” lists? ILLUSTRATION: The TOP TEN WORST DRESSED at the Academy Awards. The TOP TEN WORST MOVIES of the year. The TOP TEN WORST VACATION SPOTS in America. 1. We find these LISTS somewhat AMUSING, but what if there were a “TOP TEN WORST LIST” of more

  • The Trouble With Truth

    Contributed by Mark Aarssen on Aug 10, 2015
    based on 1 rating

    Today Jews are looking to the time when God will be worshiped by Israel once again and Jerusalem will be the center of that worship. But just as in the days of Amos a false religion will replace the true worship. Saints that time is fast approaching

    Message: Today we look at a farmer who stands on the Word of God and who takes on a King who has replaced the word of God with a lie. It is really a David and Goliath kind of story but this farmer never throws a stone he just uses God’s word to cut this king down to size. This farmer goes to more

  • Amos - An Overview Series

    Contributed by Gary Bennett on Apr 4, 2001
    based on 199 ratings

    To provide some background to the book of Amos. To do that, we’ll need to know some history and geography with a bit of sociology and covenantal theology thrown in. A dash of horticulture and zoology wouldn’t go astray either.

    REFLECTIONS ON SOCIETY? THE KANSAS SENATE PRAYER Many people pray when they begin a sermon. I’m not going to do that! Instead, I’m going to read a prayer that first saw the light of day 4 years ago (23rd January 1996). It was a prayed at the opening of a new session of the Kansas Senate. It’s more
