God is not impressed with the rich people in Israel, he says that they are the ones bringing disaster on everyone else but are too comfortable to do anything about it.

God shows Amos some visions and Amos is shocked and begs him not to do those things, and God says he won't but he will punish Israel.

Amos says he's not a prophet by trade, were there really people who were trained to be prophets? That seems to go against the whole God just picking someone to have visions thing, I guess these professional prophets weren't true ones.

God is threatening to bring natural occurrences like an earthquake and an eclipse as well as no more divine revelations, that'll be a real loss I'm sure.

Apparently it gives Amos credibility as a true prophet to point out that he was a mere herdsman so therefore must have been talking to God.

Amos' predictions are all about the nations that God wants to destroy being set on fire.

We now have a list of all the terrible things that God has done to Israel and the fact that after each one they still didn't come back to him, well of course not, would you go back to an abusive father/husband?
