Amos 7:12-13 KJV
Also Amaziah said unto Amos, O thou seer, go, flee thee away into the land of Judah, and there eat bread, and prophesy there:
 But prophesy not again any more at Beth-el: for it is the king’s chapel, and it is the king’s court.
This text obviously pre-dates the Exile period. We are made to take another look at it as recorded by the prophet Amos himself; his ordeal with Amaziah the king.
In typical Ghanaian fashion, the king restricts the prophet’s movements only to Judah, he was not to be seen anywhere near Israel.
Many people have suffered such fates because of what they stood for, probably because of their social or religious affiliations.
But one thing is for sure, those who suffer for the sake of Christ always have a better end than otherwise. Too many examples solidify this assertion. You may rather be helpless in such situations if you are not on God’s side.
Choose wisely which side you want to belong. On other sides, you get no hope of recovery when you do get hit. On our side, our eventual victory is assured.
Have a blessed Friday.
