The Prophecy of Amos for the U.S.


When one reads the old testament prophets, one should understand one thing in particular in trying to relate anything in these prophecies to the United States. The country, the United States will frequently correspond to the kingdom of Israel that was established by Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and the kingdom of Judah will frequently correspond to God’s church of today in this nation. Keeping this in mind, the scriptures that have significance to the U.S. could open up to you.

Let me take an example that relates to today. The United States has departed from God and is thus vulnerable to his judgment, and the church in the U.S. is in some quarters storing up provisions for the coming judgment by God on the United States. Now let us read Hosea 8: 14.

“For Israel has forgotten his Maker and builds temples; and Judah has multiplied fenced cities: but I will send a fire upon his cities, and it shall devour the palaces thereof.”

In this verse we can see that the United States which is Israel in this verse has forgotten the Lord and does serve other gods other than him. Meanwhile, the church in the U.S. is storing up provisions for itself for the coming judgment which corresponds to building fenced cities for protection, but God says he will destroy those provisions the church is trying to build up for the coming days. This goes along with what I said in an earlier piece: the church is putting its trust in its money to survive during God’s judgment on the United States rather than fight to try and save the United States, first. It places money ahead of God in preparing for the coming days. This money is being used to buy provisions to last through the perilous days that are rapidly approaching.

Now, I will turn to the prophecies of the Old Testament prophet, Amos. In the book of Amos in chapter 7, we have 3 periods of catastrophe that would strike the kingdom of Israel (which again corresponds to the United States in this passage). Taking up this chapter we read:

“Thus has the Lord God showed to me; and behold he formed grasshoppers in the beginning of the shooting up of the latter growth; and lo, it was the latter growth after the king’s mowings. And it came to pass when they (the locusts) had finished eating the grass of the land, then I said, ‘Oh Lord God, forgive, I beseech you: by whom shall Jacob arise (God’s witness to the world) for he is small?’ The Lord repented for this: ‘It shall not be says the Lord.’

“Thus has the Lord God showed to me: and behold, the Lord God called to contend by fire, and it devoured the great deep and did eat up a part. Then said I, ‘Oh Lord God, cease, I beseech you, by whom shall Jacob arise, for he is small?’ The Lord repented for this: ‘This also shall not be says the Lord God.’

“Thus he showed me: and behold, the Lord stood upon a wall made by a plumb line (a measuring device signifying judgment coming), with a plumb line in his hand. And the Lord said to me, ‘Amos, what do you see?’ And I said, ‘A plumb line.’ Then said the Lord, ‘Behold, I will set a plumb line in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more: and the high places of Isaac shall be desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.’ “

There were two punishments on Israel or warnings which were given by God. They were locusts and fire. They devastated the land, but God with help from the prayers of Amos said he would not destroy Israel, yet. However, when it came time for the third punishment, God said he would not turn back any more from his resolve to judge Israel. They would be destroyed. How does that relate to the United States, today?

September 11, 2001, known as 9/11 was our first punishment or warning. Seven years later to the day in the Jewish calendar our second warning or punishment occurred: that was the market crash of September, 2008. Now, on September 13, 2015 our next seven year anniversary will occur. Did anything happen on that day? No, but that does not mean God’s judgment will not follow on the United States.

Since, September 13 has now passed, we then started looking at the other Jewish feast days that follow in the months of September and October. They were the Jewish New Year on September 14-15. The Day of Atonement was on September 23. The Feast of Tabernacles was on September 28-29, but actually the whole week was part of the celebration which included September 30 through October 4. Then there was the Eighth Day of Assembly which was October 5, and finally the Day of Celebrating the Torah on October 6. That last day is not mentioned in the Bible, so nothing would be expected to happen on that day, and it was non-eventful.  Why should we be interested in taking note about the Jewish feast days? The reason is that most of the major disasters in American history have occurred on Jewish feast days. The market crash of 1929 which caused the Great Depression occurred on a Jewish feast day. Since all those days have past, we only have the many prophecies out there which say something will happen before the end of this year. I certainly say something will happen this year. It is not specifically prophesied in my book when anything will happen, but this is the time I have been expecting for the bad to happen for many years.

We can suspect the third punishment or catastrophe will be something different from what happened on 9/11 and the stock market crash of 2008. What is different that could happen? Well, there is the possibility of a natural disaster. Maybe it will be the tsunami I have been expecting that will strike California. I do not know if that is what will happen, but it is the more likely event for any natural disaster that will eventually strike this nation anytime, soon. We will have to wait and see.

It should be noted that we have never recovered to this day from the market crash of 2008, and that we have entered into a period of a very unstable stock market. After another catastrophic event, our days are numbered, but maybe God will give us one last very narrow window to repent if something catastrophic does happen before the total collapse of the stock market.

The nail in our coffin will definitely be when the market crashes again. After that event, God’s judgment on us will begin and nothing will stop it from that point on and that includes prayers of intercession for this nation. Any catastrophic event like a tsunami striking California will certainly cause a deep fall of the stock market. However, there is a chance it will not be a total collapse of the market. So, maybe we will have a chance after any catastrophic events occurs to get our house in order or maybe we will not. However, if God’s church does not do anything just like it did nothing during the last two warnings, then our goose is cooked as a nation, and we will move quickly into full tyranny from our government.

In chapter 4 of Amos there is talk about a drought striking part of the kingdom of Israel.  In verses 7  and 8 it says:

“And also I have withheld the rain from you when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain on another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece where it did not rain withered. So two or three cities wandered to one city to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have they not returned to me says the Lord.”

What part of the United States is having record drought? It is California. This signifies to me that California will be judged and highly likely being the spot where a catastrophic natural disaster will occur in this nation. Maybe, I am wrong, but this portion of the scripture stuck out to me when reading it, and so what I said earlier may truly be what is coming. Again, we will have to wait and see. However, California could be spared if it would only turn back to God. God makes that very clear in these verses. “Yet, have they not returned to me says the Lord.”  That is the answer for them. That is the answer for all of us to be rescued from God’s coming judgment. Will anyone truly listen to these warnings? God’s church needs to rise up today and take back this nation. That is the only thing that can save this country.
