Amo 4:2  The Lord GOD hath sworn by his holiness, that, lo, the days shall come upon you, that he will take you away with hooks, and your posterity [followers] with fishhooks.

Job 41:7  Canst thou fill LEVIATHON’S [the beast] skin with barbed irons? or his head with fish spears?

 The word here rendered “fish-spears” (צלצל  tselâtsal) means properly a “tinkling, clanging,
[1 Cor 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding [clanging] brass, or a tinkling cymbal.]
The Septuagint renders this strangely, referring it to the “Phenicians,” or MERCHANTS mentioned in the previous verse:
 
Job 41:6  Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?

 [ Can the merchant’s lies bring a “beast” down as fish hooks catch fish?]

Rev 18:9  And the kings of the earth [thy merchants were the great men of the earth], who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her [Babylon, the Body and bride of the spirit of antichrist], shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
10  Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
11  And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise [lies]  any more

Amo 4:4 [I know that you will] Come to Bethel [churches], and transgress; at Gilgal multiply transgression; and bring your [unacceptable] sacrifices every morning, and your tithes after three years:
Amo 4:5  And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving with leaven, and proclaim and publish the free offerings: for this liketh you, O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

[They love to offer God self willed, unacceptable ‘tithes’, instead of offering their body a holy, living sacrifice [Rom 12:1,2], so they can feel good about continuing in their sins, worshipping their sports idols, their government/military idol, their entertainment idol, and their money god.  “No meat offering, which ye shall bring unto the Lord, shall be made with leaven, for ye shall burn no leaven in an offering of the Lord made by fire” (Lev_2:11;  Lev_6:17).]
Amo 4:6  And I also have given you cleanness of teeth [famine] in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places:

[Amo 8:11  Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
Amo 8:12  And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it.

Joh 6:35  And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
Joh 6:36  But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not.]

yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

Amo 4:8  So two or three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

Rev_21:6  And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Rev_22:1  And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
Rev_22:17  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely. ]

Amo 4:9  I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased, the palmerworm devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

Amo 4:12  Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, O Israel.

[yet, as an ox goes to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks; till a dart strike through his liver; and as a bird hastens to the snare, and knows not that it is for his life, so these desire the day of the Lord, deceived by the lies their honored merchants {like Billy Graham, Charles Stanley, Kenneth Copland, John Piper, Rick Warren, Glenn Beck [Mormonism]} sold them, some of whom assured them they would be raptured out of any tribulation… supposing themselves much more valuable to God than the tortured, bloodied martyrs of the true faith of days gone by. ALL of the merchants of lies promised the unfaithful peace and safety IN THEIR SINS, which is as damning as affixing the mark on their right hand or forehead, if it isn’t exactly that.]

Amo 5:18  Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light.
Amo 5:19  As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. [church hopping and trusting in man’s word]
Amo 5:20  Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it?

[the light of the candle, the voice of the bridegroom is no longer heard in the denominations; God sees only wounds and putrefying sores where the oil and wine of the voice of the Lord should be, can’t not found.]

Amo 5:21  I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.

[church assemblies and “bible” studies at church or in the homes of those who embrace the merchants of lies]

Amo 5:22  Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.

[Their church programs, tithes and offerings are as unacceptable as if one sacrificed on an altar of brick or hewn stone. {which God forbade}]

Isa 66:1  Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?
Isa 66:2  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
Isa 66:3  He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. [ALL their attempts at honoring God is an abomination to him] Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
Isa 66:4  I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not.
Isa 66:5  Hear the word of the LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let the LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.

Amo 5:23  Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.

Amo 5:7  Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, and leave off righteousness in the earth
Amo 5:25  Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?

Deu 32:16  They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger.

Deu 32:18  Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.
Deu 32:19  And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.
Deu 32:20  And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.
Deu 32:21  They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities

Amo 5:26  But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.

[the six pointed star is exalted today in many churches. Many professing Christians have innocent blood on their hands because they have murdered their unborn child-a sacrifice to Molech]

Amo 5:27  Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity

[these deceitful, unstable souls cannot cease from sin because they are captive to lies]

beyond Damascus, saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.

[2Pe 2:12  But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
2Pe 2:13  And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
2Pe 2:14  Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
2Pe 2:15  Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

Isa 1:2  Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the LORD hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.
Isa 1:3  The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.
Hos 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Hos 4:7  As they were increased, so they sinned against me: therefore will I change their glory into shame.
Hos 4:8  They eat up the sin of my people, and they set their heart on their iniquity.
Hos 4:9  And there shall be, like people, like priest: and I will punish them for their ways, and reward them their doings.
Hos 4:10  For they shall eat, and not have enough: they shall commit whoredom, and shall not increase: because they have left off to take heed to the LORD.
Hos 4:11  Whoredom and wine and new wine take away the heart. [they commit whoredom with lies]

Isa 1:7  Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence,

[muslims, Jews, Congressmen, Senators, Presidents, and sodomites are given special rights]

 and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.
Isa 1:9  Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
Isa 1:10  Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
Isa 1:11  To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats. [tithes, offerings, songs, prayers]
Isa 1:12  When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
Isa 1:13  Bring no more vain oblations; incense [your prayer] is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
Isa 1:14  Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
Isa 1:15  And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. [Abortion, war, torture]
Isa 1:16  Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

[their merchants SELL THE LIE THAT EVERYONE WAS BORN A SINNER, TOTALLY DEPRAVED, AND CANNOT CEASE FROM SIN, EVEN AFTER BEING SAVED, AND THE UNFAITHFUL FOOLISH VIRGINS LOVE TO HEAR IT, BECAUSE IT MAKES THEM FEEL GOOD IN THEIR CONTINUED SINNING! Christ is made of no effect to them, but they don’t care! They love it!]

Jer 5:30  A thing causing wonder; a horrible thing is committed in the land;
Jer 5:31  The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof? ]

Isa 1:19  IF ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Isa 1:20  But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
Isa 1:21  How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. [backslidden reprobates]
Isa 1:22  Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:

[They teach lies in Christ’s name, refusing to separate the holy from the profane.]

Isa 1:23  Thy princes [leaders] are rebellious, and companions of thieves [covetous liars; greedy dogs who can never have enough]: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

Isa 1:31  And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of the profane garden as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.
