Threshing God's People with Brutality

God had something against the capital of Syria. God needed His people threshed, but Syria did it with cruelty,
Thus says the LORD:
“For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,
Because they have threshed Gilead with implements of iron.”
(Amos 1:3)
The Lord had given Damascus time to repent, but they added that fourth sin and He could no longer tolerate them in their land. Therefore, He would destroy them as they had destroyed and He would carry them into captivity (Amos 1:4, 5).
The Lord watches how the world treats His people. He noted the world against Israel then, and He notes the world against the church now. Does the world try to silence us? He will silence them.
