Amos 7:10-17 – Don’t prophecy here
When God confronts you
Amos 7:8-9. “And the Lord asked me, “What do you see, Amos?” “A plumb line,” I replied. Then the Lord said, “Look, I am setting a plumb line among my people Israel; I will spare them no longer. “The high places of Isaac will be destroyed and the sanctuaries of Israel will be ruined; with my sword I will rise against the house of Jeroboam.”
1) Amaziah’s response
Amos does not represent God
Amaziah does not like what Amos says
2) But Amos speaks for God
3) The terrible cost of ignoring God’s word
For us today
So how does this part of Amos speak to us today?
When God speaks what should we do?
a) The ‘Amaziah approach’.
… the church today
2 Timothy 4:3
b) … a desire to respond in obedience.
What does this mean in practical terms?
God is graciously calling us back
