What Am I Seeing?

“Thus hath the Lord God shewed unto me, and behold…”(Amos 7:1). Here, God personally interacts with the visual faculty of Amos and wants Amos to “see” something so that he [Amos] can tell others. This verse is intriguing because it might make one ask, what would the Lord God show me? In this passage and others, there are many instances when God shows people not only their sin but also its consequences.1 Perhaps, some other questions one can ask are “Why does God show people their sin and its consequences” and “What does God want me to see?”
