There were two prophets who were prophesying in the days of King Jeroboam II – Jonah and Amos. Both were established and bona fide prophets. The only thing was – their prophecies seemed to be contradictory and diametrically opposite to each other’s. One prophet, Jonah, was prophesying prosperity, enlargement, expansion and growth. And all that was happening. But there was another prophet – an obscure, lesser known, grassroots prophet, Amos, who was prophesying doom, despondency and judgment. Everybody seemed to be ignoring him because he didn’t seem like a heavyweight. So, who was correct? How do we handle a contradictory word and why is the Book of Amos critical for Singapore at this time?
