“’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.” (Amos 9:15).

 

Conclusion . . .

 

One might consider the key verse of the entire chapter to be: “’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.” (Amos 9:15)

 

God made it very clear that Israel would be restored, and as such, she would never be uprooted and removed from the land He gave her.

 

This is, arguably, the most important point that continues to be overlooked in today’s political arenas. It would be strongly advisable for the world’s governing pundits to take heed when attempting to resolve the Middle East crisis, especially when this verse is coupled with that found in Zechariah, where the LORD said: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves.” (Zechariah12:2-3)

 

Scripture is either true, or it is not. We cannot be cafeteria Christians, choosing what we want, when we find it convenient. God’s Word is clear. God will deal with those who curse Israel and force her to abandon her inheritance; and that includes the United States, as well.

 

Therefore, let us pray that our leaders will act in accordance with Scripture, and not man’s will.
