the Prophet Amos Chapter 7

   Moreover, he showed me this vision: behold, the Lord stood upon a plastered wall, and a masons trowel in his hand. And the Lord said unto me: Amos, what see you? I answered: a masons trowel. Then said the Lord: behold, I will lay the trowel among my people of Israel, and will nomore oversee them: but the high hill chapels of Isaac must be laid waste and the *churches of Israel made desolate: and as for the house of Jeroboam, I will stand up against with a sword. Upon this sent Amasiah the priest to Bethel unto Jeroboam the king of Israel saying: Amos makes the house of Israel to rebel against you, the land cannot away (Hebrew: endure it or allow it) with his words. For Amos says, Jeroboam shall die with the sword, and Israel shall be led away, captive out of their own land. And Amasiah said unto Amos: Get you from here, now (you that can see so well) and flee into the land of Juda: get you there your living, and prophesy there: and prophesy no more at Bethel, for it is the kings chapel, and the kings court. *churches: note that the Lord made desolate and laid waste these "churches" of Israel.

   Ephraim gives rewards to get lovers. Therefore are they scattered among the Heathen, There will I gather them up. They shall soon be weary of the burden of the king and princes. Ephraim has made many altars to do wickedness, therefore shall the altars to his sin. though I show then my law never so much, they count it as strange doctrine. Where as they do sacrifice, offering the flesh and eating it: The Lord will have no pleasure therein: but will remember their wickednesses, and punish their sins. Israel turns again into Egypt, they have forgotten him that made them, they build *churches, and Juda makes many strong cities: therefore will I send a fire into their cities, and it shall consume their places.

*churches: This is the first reference to the word "church" in the entire Word of God ...see here that God is displeased with the "building" of these "churches" by Israel.
