I had a Jew on Paltalk known as Hamoreh contact me recently and a brief conversation ensured, it was very brief but I want to address one verse he brought which would apparently refute the fundamentals of Christianity. let's look at the verse in question.
"7 Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing
without revealing his plan
to his servants the prophets."
Let us take a look at the fuller context:
"3 Hear this word, people of Israel, the word the Lord has spoken against you—against the whole family I brought up out of Egypt:
2 “You only have I chosen
of all the families of the earth;
therefore I will punish you
for all your sins.”
3 Do two walk together
unless they have agreed to do so?
4 Does a lion roar in the thicket
when it has no prey?
Does it growl in its den
when it has caught nothing?
5 Does a bird swoop down to a trap on the ground
when no bait is there?
Does a trap spring up from the ground
if it has not caught anything?
6 When a trumpet sounds in a city,
do not the people tremble?
When disaster comes to a city,
has not the Lord caused it?
7 Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing
without revealing his plan
to his servants the prophets.
8 The lion has roared—
who will not fear?
The Sovereign Lord has spoken—
who can but prophesy?
9 Proclaim to the fortresses of Ashdod
and to the fortresses of Egypt:
“Assemble yourselves on the mountains of Samaria;
see the great unrest within her
and the oppression among her people.”
10 “They do not know how to do right,” declares the Lord,
“who store up in their fortresses
what they have plundered and looted.”
11 Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
“An enemy will overrun your land,
pull down your strongholds
and plunder your fortresses.”
12 This is what the Lord says:
“As a shepherd rescues from the lion’s mouth
only two leg bones or a piece of an ear,
so will the Israelites living in Samaria be rescued,
with only the head of a bed
and a piece of fabric[a] from a couch.[b]”
13 “Hear this and testify against the descendants of Jacob,” declares the Lord, the Lord God Almighty.
14 “On the day I punish Israel for her sins,
I will destroy the altars of Bethel;
the horns of the altar will be cut off
and fall to the ground.
15 I will tear down the winter house
along with the summer house;
the houses adorned with ivory will be destroyed
and the mansions will be demolished,”
declares the Lord."
The text in question is not a refutation of Christianity. The text is simply affirming what it says. Whether it be explicit or implicit, God makes his plans known to the prophets. The people of Israel were listening to false prophets and worshiping idols, hearing things from the false prophets that God had not said or ordained. The Israelites had not heeded the word of the LORD, hence they were going to be subject to judgement for their sins and wickedness.
My question to Hamoreh is this if he is reading, How does verse 7 alone refute Christianity and it's fundamental tenets?
Deuteronomy 13 doesn't refute Jesus:
The Mt Sinai revelation doesn't refute him either:
Not to mention there is plenty of evidence to show that Jesus is the Messiah and predicted in the Old Testament:
So how and what way does Amos 3:7 refute Jesus? That is my question to you.
