Judgment would rightly come upon a sinful nation, but God’s blessing and mercy would follow when Christ came.

Scripture: Amos 9:8-15

ESV Text: Amos 9:8-15


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 9
8 Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD. 9 For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth. 10 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us.

     11 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: 12 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. 13 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. 14 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. 15 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.(KJV)

Let Me be Yours Forever

Hymnary.org — Organ Audio

1. Let me be Thine forever, 
Thou faithful God and Lord; 
Let me forsake Thee never 
Nor wander from Thy Word. 
Lord, do not let me waver, 
But give me steadfastness, 
And for such grace forever 
Thy holy name I’ll bless. 

2. Lord Jesus, my Salvation, 
My Light, my Life divine, 
My only Consolation, 
Oh, make me wholly Thine! 
For Thou hast dearly bought me 
With blood and bitter pain. 
Let me, since Thou hast sought me, 
Eternal life obtain. 

3. And Thou, O Holy Spirit, 
My Comforter and Guide, 
Grant that in Jesus’ merit 
I always may confide, 
Him to the end confessing 
Whom I have known by faith. 
Give me Thy constant blessing 
And grant a Christian death.
