4As I read the prophecy of Amos, I can’t help but notice the similarities between ancient Israel and modern America. It was a time of great prosperity for Israel, but it was also a time of great immorality. But in the midst of it all, they just didn’t really care. They were complacent.
5America isn’t Israel, but there is a recurring historical pattern in Israel’s history that can be seen in our nation.
6In the book of Micah, God presents three sources of evidence of moral decline—things we’re seeing in America.

11There are several important prophecies about the second coming of Jesus Zechariah left us.
12God’s love is a matter of His grace, not our worthiness. Five truths about the character and nature of God.
