A 9:11 Wake up Call from Amos… Interesting…. :)

Conspiracy theories are fun! And since it is the 9th month of the year 2011 and September is almost over, I thought I’d better get busy and write this 🙂  I couldn’t resist…

The prophet Amos sent out a wake up call in Amos “9:11”. It reads,

11 In that day
I will restore David’s fallen shelter—
I will repair its broken walls
and restore its ruins—
and will rebuild it as it used to be…

This prophecy was quoted in Jerusalem when the early church leaders were debating about whether or not Gentiles should have to become Jewish to enter the kingdom of God… particularly rough on males I might add.

In Acts 15:12-19 you can read about it. After quoting from Amos 9:11, they decided that since David didn’t make it hard for the pagan Gentiles to come to meet with God in his tent, then they shouldn’t either. Makes sense to me!

There is a wake up call going out to us in our time to make it easy for people all around us to see the awesomeness of God through our lives! We need to awaken to the fact that you and I are God’s plan for changing the world!  Take a few minutes and watch this video by Leeland.  Click here to watch the video Great Awakening.  Maybe you will be the first to wake up?

One man wakes, awakens another
Second one wakes his next door brother
Three awake can rouse a town
And turn the whole place upside down
Many awake will cause such a fuss
It finally awakes all of us
One man wakes with dawn in his eyes
Surely then it multiplies
Surely then it multiplies
