The Amos War.

The Amos war is tied to the Obadiah war that is tied to Psalms 83 war that is tied to the Isaiah 17 war. T%he Bible is 100% these things must happen in our Generation we are living prophecy…Surely Icome quicly Even so come Lord Jesus.Thus saith the Lord; For three transgression of Gaza, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they carried away captive the whole captivity, to deliver them up to Edom: [7] But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza, which shall devour the palaces thereof: [8] And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod, and him that holdeth the sceptre from Ashkelon, and I will turn mine hand against Ekron: and the remnant of the Philistines shall perish, saith the Lord God.”

1. Reason for Destruction

Notice the reason for God’s wrath in verse six. He says for three transgressions (for everything you have done) and for four (but specifically for this reason) I will not turn away from punishing Gaza and the Palestinian people. What was that specific reason? They carried away captives. – What was it that we said started the battle in the Middle East? – Hamas, the terrorist group from the Gaza Strip took an Israeli soldier captive.

2. Punishment Given

Next, look at the punishment that God promises to send in verse 7. He says he will send down fire and devour the palaces thereof. Have you been watching the evening news when they show pictures of Israel bombing Gaza and sending in tanks? Fire is reigning down on the Palestinians from the sky. What an incredible prophecy, written almost 3000 years ago. We are seeing it be fulfilled right before our very eyes.

B. Lebanon and Hezbollah

But if that isn’t fascinating enough, Amos goes on to describe the downfall of the other party fighting against Israel today.

Tyrus is the city mentioned in the Bible that comes under God’s judgment in Amos 1:9-10. By looking Tyrus up in the Bible Atlas, we see that it is present day Tyre. A city in Lebanon that has been mentioned as being on the receiving end of some of the Israeli bombing campaign. Likewise, since Tyrus is a city mentioned in connection with a specific area, we know that the prophecy in Amos verse 9 and 10 is talking about the entire area around Tyrus, specifically, present day Lebanon. Let’s read.

Amos 1:9-10, “Thus saith the Lord; For three transgressions of Tyrus, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom and remembered not the brotherly covenant: [10] But I will send a fire on the wall of Tyrus, which shall devour the palaces thereof.”

1. Reason for Destruction

Again notice the reason for God’s punishment in verse 9. He says for three transgressions (for everything you have done) and for four (but specifically for this reason) I will not turn away from punishing Lebanon. What was that specific reason? They carried away captives. – What was it that we said started the battle in the Middle East? – Hezbollah, the terrorist group from the southern Lebanon took two Israeli soldiers captive.

But notice that God gives two reasons for His judgment on Lebanon. He also says that they remembered not the brotherly covenant. Could this be a reference to the agreement with the UN that the Lebanese government would see to the disarmament of Hezbollah and occupy southern Lebanon if Israel withdrew its troops? The agreement that was followed by Israel but totally ignored, and therefore broken, by Hezbollah and Lebanon. – It just might be.

    Jim I am not a teacher or anything, if my posts bother you dont have to read them… I read posts good or bad , and I think about them….. I put theses threads out for Thinking and to read… But It seems As MM said Satans smoke has come into the Vatican.

  2. Bikelite says:

    Jesus didn�t attack the immorality of the society in particular. Obviously he was concerned about sin and called sinners to repentance, but Jesus attacked the religious establishment, because they were the “dammers” of souls. Because they offered people the false solution. The deceptive lie. The ultimate delusion, that God is pleased with you when He�s not. And so He attacked that system. I see I am doing something right … the Scoffers and the fun makers have come like a murder of Crows… Goood… this shows the metal that their hearts are made of for everyone to See.. Jesus Bless I srael is Gods Time Line……..

      Bikelite,
      Please believe that I absolutely meant no offense with my question! I have enjoyed some of your post and even replied to some,I was or am just truly confused with all the periods. Perhaps, it is as Warrior Daughter pointed out. But, I was hoping for your response.
      I will respond to the other post later,I am in a big hurry right now 🙂
      Beloved

    Beloved, in an attempt to have a discussion with a poster, asked a legitimate question, because the person she asked the question of, does this thing with all of the ………….. all over his sentences, as though there is some secret spiritual information only the learned or spiritual people reading his posts would know, as though you are supposed to understand and fill in the blanks.
    Have you noticed Beloved has received 3 reply’s to her question, but sad to say not one of them is from the person of whom the question was asked?
    I am writing this because 2 of the reply’s she received, sounded as though she was being made fun of for asking such a foolish question, which is not a very Christian attitude.
    Again Beloved asked a legitimate question, and she deserves a legitimate answer, but Beloved, don’t hold your breath with this poster, he just likes to post without discussion of what, or how he posts.

    Our (U.S.A.) national symbol is the Eagle,and we have been to space! It could refer to us.

    • Bikelite says:

      Ya Baby but not like this one … you should go and take a…look at it and then come back..I would like to hear .. ………or words on it…

      • Beloved says:

        Will do. Why do you put so many dots in your sentences? It is confusing.Am I suppose to fill in the blanks? I ask this with all respect.
        Beloved

        • warrior daughter says:

          I also put dots in my replies…It is a habit of mine & helps me to seperate sentences better since I have some dylexia… It is a quirk I have & it means nothing…

          • Beloved says:

            Dear Sister,
            I had not even thought of this possibility! Thank-you for pointing it out. I meant no offense.
            Beloved

        • Haha Beloved you are funny!
          Not to speak of being soooo serious (sorry about all the O’s couldn’t get my finger off the key)
          God bless yo’all

        • Beloved, I am truelly sorry if our teasing has offended you, that was not the intention, and I hope you accept it as in a family that cares for each other, without malice.

          Jim, I need to apologize to you also, that you thought it belittling so as to come to Beloved’s aid, noble of you all the same, but uncalled for….(sorry about all the dots)
          ….and also to you A_T_L, without me adding to the teasing, maybe you wouldn’t have had to be offended by Jim’s chivalry, which was nice of him after all.

          Jesus loves you.

    Obadiah 1:4 Though thou exalt thyself as the Eagle and though thou set they nest amoung the stars, thence will I bring thee down saith the Lord. The Palestinian symbol on the authority website is the Eagle , its very similar to Hitlers Eagle symbol….. very interesting!
