HE HADN’T intended to be a prophet, but that’s the work to which the Lord called him. Amos, a contemporary of Isaiah, was a shepherd from south of Jerusalem in the kingdom of Judah. However, he devoted most of the nine chapters of his book to warning the northern kingdom of Israel about its imminent doom — a judgment decreed by God.
GOD’S JUDGMENT on an unrepentant world is the focus of this week’s New Testament study.
John was shown terrifying imagery of disasters so catastrophic that the earth is literally shaken to its core. But take heart — the church of Jesus Christ is not appointed to wrath, so if you have accepted Christ as your Savior, you won’t be here for it.
