September 28, 2019 | Prophetic Justice in Amos, Part 4

God’s Message of Hope for Israel

This week we’re concluding our series on the book of Amos. Learning about true justice, biblical justice, gives us a glimpse into what is close to God’s heart. The prophet Amos was called to shine a light on God’s imminent judgment that was coming for Israel. There was an abuse of power and oppression of the poor. Sometimes it feels like justice is never fully realized. But we know that we can look at Old Testament books such as Amos and see God’s justice and also His faithfulness. 

Like many of the prophets, Amos doesn’t leave Israel in a state of hopelessness. He leaves them with the hope of restoration. That restoration did not happen right away for Israel, in fact, they are still waiting for the complete fulfillment! Listen for more!

The Ruin and Restoration of Israel

By David M. Levy

In his book, The Ruin and Restoration of Israel, David Levy paints a moving picture of God’s deep love for the Jewish people as he walks through the books of Hosea, Amos, and Micah.


Apples of Gold: How can you be so happy?

After Israel passed a new law saying that all Hebrew-Christians were to just be called Christians, Zvi’s public identity changed. People questioned him about his faith often. As one man bragged about all his possessions, Zvi changed his perspective. Zvi found happiness through trusting the Lord, Who had provided him with a happy home and family. This man had never known what he had been missing until then. Hear how Zvi taught the man about the true wealth that is found in the joy of the Lord.

Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.

More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.


The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
