Sunday sermon 7-22-18 [video made 7-15-18]

Amos 7:14 Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit:

Amos 7:15 And the LORD took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.

Amos 7:16 Now therefore hear thou the word of the LORD:

This Sunday I spoke on the verses from the Mass for this date- 7-15-18-

Later today- 7-22-18- I will try and post the video I make today to blogger- Youtube and facebook.

I’ll just talk a little about the passage from Amos and add all the verses below in the Verses section.

From the prophet we read-

Amos 7:10 Then Amaziah the priest of Bethel sent to Jeroboam king of Israel, saying, Amos hath conspired against thee in the midst of the house of Israel: the land is not able to bear all his words.

Amos 7:11 For thus Amos saith, Jeroboam shall die by the sword, and Israel shall surely be led away captive out of their own land.

Amos 7:12 Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there:

Amos 7:13 But prophesy not again any more at Bethel: for it is the king's chapel, and it is the king's court.

Amos 7:14 Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit:

Amos 7:15 And the LORD took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.

Amos 7:16 Now therefore hear thou the word of the LORD: Thou sayest, Prophesy not against Israel, and drop not thy word against the house of Isaac.

Amos 7:17 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Thy wife shall be an harlot in the city, and thy sons and thy daughters shall fall by the sword, and thy land shall be divided by line; and thou shalt die in a polluted land: and Israel shall surely go into captivity forth of his land.

Amos was challenging the authority of Jeroboam [the 2nd]- and the priest confronts the prophet- and says-

 O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there:

Amos 7:13 But prophesy not again any more at Bethel: for it is the king's chapel, and it is the king's court.

There were actually ‘professional’ paid prophets at this time- and in essence the priest was saying ‘go make your living back home- we are familiar with the way you guys operate- go earn your pay somewhere else’.

That's why we get the seemingly strange response from Amos-

Amos 7:14 Then answered Amos, and said to Amaziah, I was no prophet, neither was I a prophet's son; but I was an herdman, and a gatherer of sycomore fruit:

Amos 7:15 And the LORD took me as I followed the flock, and the LORD said unto me, Go, prophesy unto my people Israel.

He was saying something like this [some sites- see the rest here https://ccoutreach87.com/2018/07/22/sunday-sermon-7-22-18/ ] ‘I’m not one of the paid clergy-
