The Twelve Minor Prophets Amos Chapter 3

Amos Chapter 3

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

  • God is seriously ticked off. When he entered into a covenant with the twelve tribes of Israel, they were supposed to respond by creating a just society, not by thinking they were so special that they could trash the place.
  • Going back to animal metaphors again, God says, “The lion has roared, who will not fear?” Hint: “Not me” is the wrong answer.
  • God’s so angry that he promises to destroy both the Israelites’ winter homes and summer homes, which historically explains why there was so much beachfront property available for development in the Hamptons and Florida.
