Restoration of Worship
When the worship is restored, the church is risen,
the nation is renewed, and the family is revived.
In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof;
and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:
That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name,
saith the LORD that doeth this. Behold, the days come, saith the LORD,
that the plowman shall overtake the reaper,
and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed;
and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.
And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel,
and they shall build the waste cities,
and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof;
they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
And I will plant them upon their land,
and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the LORD thy God.
(Amos 9: 11-15)
