Amos sees five visions of judgment, and then closes the book with the promise of restoration.
- Word of God – God tells Israel that soon there will be a famine of hearing the Word of God (8:11-12). God has spoken again and again, but they would not listen. Soon God will stop speaking. What a terrible judgment! Do you listen when God speaks? Are you seeking his Word?
- Booth of David – God promises that he will raise up the fallen house of David and usher in a great time of blessing (9:11-15). God has raised up Jesus, a descendent of David, and when Jesus returns, these blessings will arrive. Even so, come Lord Jesus!
