“Behold the days are coming,” declares the Lord,
when the plowman shall overtake the reaper
and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed;
the mountains shall drip sweet wine,
and all the hills shall flow with it.
I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel,
and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them;
they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine,
and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit.
I will plant them on their land,
and they shall never again be uprooted
out of the land that I have given them,”
says the Lord your God.
Amos 9:13-15 (ESV)
Ponder the beautiful pictures of peace and abundance that await complete fulfillment when the Lord does indeed abundantly restore his people. I don’t think I need to add anything to such wonderful promises and such rich imagery. The lemons of life will indeed be wiped away.
