Amos was a sheep herder and tender of sycamore fruit who God called to become a prophet to the kingdom and people of Northern Israel around 763-755 BC. He used great psychology in presenting his message to them in that he began first to tell them of God’s judgment that would come upon the surrounding peoples who had been their enemies. When he had their attention and probably agreeing with him, he then directed God’s word of judgment upon Northern Israel and its people.
Naturally they didn’t like hearing that–they were in a time of prosperity economically and politically–but spiritually they were bankrupt.
Amaziah, the king’s priest informed the king about Amos, and then basically told Amos to shut up and go home.
Amos continued his message of judgment, but then as was the case with many of the O.T. prophets, ended his message with words of hope and restoration of Israel and the people in the time when Messiah will set up His everlasting kingdom.
There was relevance for the people in Northern Israel because they would soon be going into captivity to Assyria.
There was relevance to the people in the time of the apostles because James quoted from Amos chapter 9 in his Jerusalem counsel meeting in Acts chapter 15.
There is relevance for us in our day in that we have witnessed the restoration of the nation of Israel and have begun to see foreshadowings of what Jesus said would take place during the tribulation period just prior to Him setting up His Kingdom.
