Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are upon the sinful Kingdom-Amos 9:8
If we have been paying attention and listening, I think we can ALL agree that we are in perilous times. We are living in the end-time and it’s not looking so great with much bloodshed and compromising in the things that God is displeased with. We indeed have become a nation that will NOT obey. We have become a rebellious house, yet we remain silent.
Ruins-Reduced to a state of decay; collapse
I say to you, Oh what a tangled web we have weaved! What have we, as the body of Christ allowed that grieves the Lord? What doctrines have we been listening too and what idols have we allowed in the nation? We have a mess and it's time to clean up the collapse. How are we going to rebuild the ruins?
Lamentations 5:1-5: Remember, Lord, what has happened to us; look, and see our disgrace.
2 Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers, our homes to foreigners. We have become fatherless, our mothers are widows. 4 We must buy the water we drink; our wood can be had only at a price. 5 Those who pursue us are at our heels; we are weary and find no rest.
V. 14-16: The elders are gone from the city gate; the young men have stopped their music.
15 Joy is gone from our hearts; our dancing has turned to mourning. The crown has fallen from our head. Woe to us, for we have sinned!
But there is HOPE! God is gracious in HIS forgiveness.
And to this agree the words of the Prophets, as it is written:
16 ‘After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down. And I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up, 17 that the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles upon whom My name is called, saith the Lord who doeth all these things.’
It's time to sing a new song. Time to change our tune. It's time to redefine the old traditions; as well as old mind-sets. We must build again!
What IS the Tabernacle od David?
Zion is God’s dwelling place forever. When I read this passage of scripture, I had to sleep on it; mediate on it. The next morning, I woke to pray-All I could hear was- Abba Father, who art in Heaven. Hallow be thy name. Thy Kingdom come, let your Will be done on EARTH as it is in HEAVEN! Wow! Let your Will be done on earth as it is(already) in Heaven. Then it became clear to me what God was trying to tell me. We have become silent. Time to sound the trumpet; speak and sing the praises unto the Lord, on earth, as it is in HEAVEN.
Reason why God Loved the Tabernacle
Psalm 33:3 says, Sing to Him a new song; Play skillfully [on the strings] with a loud and joyful sound.
Revelation 14:2-3- And I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of great waters and like the rumbling of mighty thunder; and the voice that I heard [seemed like music and] was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps. 3 And they sang a new song before the throne [of God] and before the four living creatures and the elders; and no one could learn the song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who had been purchased (ransomed, redeemed) from the earth.
So let us rebuild the collapse of the Kingdom and sound the trumpet! Amen!
