Thus far the start of Amos has just shown us a very angry, vengeful god raining down fire left and right. Seriously, that is it. Maybe God has tired himself out in the third chapter?
“Hear this word, people of Israel, the word the Lord has spoken against you—against the whole family I brought up out of Egypt” – Amos 3:1
Yeah, God is still pissed. LOL!
“You only have I chosen of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your sins.” – Amos 3:2
Because God has chosen you, he will punish you. Yeah, makes sense. Not.
“When disaster comes to a city, has not the Lord caused it?” – Amos 3:6
Is this your argument to convince people to follow God? If so, it’s a shit poor argument.
“Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.” – Amos 3:7
Um…no. The god of the Bible rarely reveals anything and when he does it is to a single person who then controls the people.
“As a shepherd rescues from the lion’s mouth only two leg bones or a piece of an ear, so will the Israelites living in Samaria be rescued, with only the head of a bed and a piece of fabric from a couch.” – Amos 3:12
LOL! An interesting way of saying you are fucked and God doesn’t give a shit. 🙂
Yep, God is still in a pissy mood.
