Sermons from the In-Your-Face Prophet
Amos 3-4
Skip Heitzig

Jump To: Prayer | Worship | Message

Amos 3 (NKJV™)
1 Hear this word that the LORD has spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt, saying:
2 "You only have I known of all the families of the earth; Therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities."
3 Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?
4 Will a lion roar in the forest, when he has no prey? Will a young lion cry out of his den, if he has caught nothing?
5 Will a bird fall into a snare on the earth, where there is no trap for it? Will a snare spring up from the earth, if it has caught nothing at all?
6 If a trumpet is blown in a city, will not the people be afraid? If there is calamity in a city, will not the LORD have done it?
7 Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
8 A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy?
9 "Proclaim in the palaces at Ashdod, And in the palaces in the land of Egypt, and say: 'Assemble on the mountains of Samaria; See great tumults in her midst, And the oppressed within her.
10 For they do not know to do right,' Says the LORD, 'Who store up violence and robbery in their palaces.'"
11 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: "An adversary shall be all around the land; He shall sap your strength from you, And your palaces shall be plundered."
12 Thus says the LORD: "As a shepherd takes from the mouth of a lion Two legs or a piece of an ear, So shall the children of Israel be taken out Who dwell in Samaria--In the corner of a bed and on the edge of a couch!
13 Hear and testify against the house of Jacob," Says the Lord GOD, the God of hosts,
14 "That in the day I punish Israel for their transgressions, I will also visit destruction on the altars of Bethel; And the horns of the altar shall be cut off And fall to the ground.
15 I will destroy the winter house along with the summer house; The houses of ivory shall perish, And the great houses shall have an end," Says the LORD.
Amos 4 (NKJV™)
1 Hear this word, you cows of Bashan, who are on the mountain of Samaria, Who oppress the poor, Who crush the needy, Who say to your husbands, "Bring wine, let us drink!"
2 The Lord GOD has sworn by His holiness: "Behold, the days shall come upon you When He will take you away with fishhooks, And your posterity with fishhooks.
3 You will go out through broken walls, Each one straight ahead of her, And you will be cast into Harmon," Says the LORD.
4 "Come to Bethel and transgress, At Gilgal multiply transgression; Bring your sacrifices every morning, Your tithes every three days.
5 Offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, Proclaim and announce the freewill offerings; For this you love, You children of Israel!" Says the Lord GOD.
6 "Also I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities. And lack of bread in all your places; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.
7 "I also withheld rain from you, When there were still three months to the harvest. I made it rain on one city, I withheld rain from another city. One part was rained upon, And where it did not rain the part withered.
8 So two or three cities wandered to another city to drink water, But they were not satisfied; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.
9 "I blasted you with blight and mildew. When your gardens increased, Your vineyards, Your fig trees, And your olive trees, The locust devoured them; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.
10 "I sent among you a plague after the manner of Egypt; Your young men I killed with a sword, Along with your captive horses; I made the stench of your camps come up into your nostrils; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.
11 "I overthrew some of you, As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, And you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning; Yet you have not returned to Me," Says the LORD.
12 "Therefore thus will I do to you, O Israel; Because I will do this to you, Prepare to meet your God, O Israel!"
13 For behold, He who forms mountains, And creates the wind, Who declares to man what his thought is, And makes the morning darkness, Who treads the high places of the earth--The LORD God of hosts is His name.

Minor Prophets in the Major Leagues

Why do we call Jonah, Amos, Obadiah, Malachi and the others the "minor" prophets? It certainly isn't because their messages were less important! Prophets are like people holding a wire from heaven and wire to the earth, with God speaking through them. At times, God used these unique men to proclaim His truth, or to denounce men's sin, or to predict the future, both near and far-off. Other times, He used them to show His truth by demonstration, through events in their lives. In this in-depth series, Pastor Skip Heitzig presents important truths about these little books with big messages.

A Pageant of Rejected Love
Hosea 1:1-2:1
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
All of us have a need to see and understand God. But what does it take for God to get your attention? The book of Hosea speaks of God using the marriage of Hosea and his wife Gomer to depict a demonstration of events to come and cause them to recognize the degradated state the house of Israel was in. God will use/allow any means to get our attention to turn to Him but do we really want that extreme? I hope not, but if that is what it takes then God, because He loves us, will allow just that. If you find many hardships, disappointment and tough times, stop, think and turn to God for He has the answers you seek.

A Pageant of Recovered Love
Hosea 2-3
Skip Heitzig
Info
Message Summary
Are you running from circumstances that appear hopeless? Are you feeling the tugging on you heart that you can't quite understand? Well these all may be the prompting of the Holy Spirit of God to get your attention. Hosea and Gomer had a marriage that was difficult and full of impossible issues but God had a purpose for it all. Their marriage was a picture to the people of Israel of how we should not treat God. Gomer had freewill and made a bad choices but Hosea stayed faithful in the midst of it all…, why? Because Hosea listened to the grace of God and was sustained. You may be going through difficult times, circumstances of hardships, but if you listen to the prompting of God you will be sustained, but if you reject His promptings you could suffer and take the wrong paths. God will demonstrate His love to you in every way but it's up to you to recognize it and choose whom you will serve, God or man.
