Amos delivers yet another death blow to the Israelites as he unfolds the reality of their impending judgment from God. In all of it, the prophet is calling Israel to repentance. The sad reality is that the nation is woefully deceived. They believe they are in God's good graces. They do not see themselves as they truly are. They are stubbornly hypocritical. Yet worst of all, they are completely blindsided by the fact that they will have to stand before their Maker and give an account.
