Hi Deborah
thank you for your post yes it is good news I take it this prophesy is for the end times now although I do believe that prophecies can have more than one fulfilment this prophecy was also fulfilled for the coming of Christ at his first advent it was important that there was a Temple for him  to come to.

These words of St Paul come to mind.

Rom 11:17  And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
Rom 11:18  Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
Rom 11:19  Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.
Rom 11:20  Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
Rom 11:21  For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
       

If we are graffted into Israel and the words all Israel will be saved mean Israel and us are all the same one body this will happen of course when Israel is reserected.


Love and Peace

Amos 9:13-15

(13) "The days are coming," declares the LORD,
"when the reaper will be overtaken by the ploughman
and the planter by the one treading grapes.
New wine will drip from the mountains
and flow from all the hills,

(14) and I will bring my people Israel back from exile.
They will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them.
They will plant vineyards and drink their wine;
they will make gardens and eat their fruit.

(15) I will plant Israel in their own land,
never again to be uprooted
from the land I have given them,"
says the LORD your God.


Now Amos looks forward to the time of the new Messianic Kingdom - a time of unimaginable prosperity. So lavish will be the abundance that the sower of the next crop will find the reaper of the last crop still at work! Jesus saw this beginning to come true in the effects of His own ministry (John 4:35,36).
God's people will once again enjoy His blessings without fear of war, famine or exile. They can never be robbed of their inheritance, but will be finally, eternally secure.

This is the promise that we look forward to, even though at times it seems as though we'll never get there!

Hi Deborah
Thank you for your post yes you are right in what you say Amos shows us a wonderful future in front of us let us pray it will come soon.
Of course part of this prophecy has happened when Israel returned to their home land after two thousand years but  when one considers when this prophecy was made how can anyone deny the existence of the God who knows the end from the beginning.

Love and Peace

Hi Deborah
I have only just realised that that was the end of the book of Amos It has been an instructive and interesting journey and I'm sure it has been a blessing to all who have travelled with us.
Question now is where do we go from here I was thinking 1 John what do you think or do you have a better preference I do so enjoy these studies hope you do to.

Love and Peace

It's your turn to choose, and I John is an excellent book. He talks about love a lot, so you'll be in your element!
