13

Amos (9:11)

On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down, and repair its damages; I will raise up its ruins and Rebuild it as in the days of old;

(9:12) That they may possess the remnant of Edom, And all the Gentiles who are called by my name, Says the Lord who does this thing.

(9:13) Behold the days are coming says the Lord, when the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed; the mountains shall drip with sweet wine, and all the hills shall flow with it.”

Let’s stop right there…

Flow

We are working out of a book that we don’t see preached a whole lot today…

The book of Amos ….

One of what we like to call the Minor Prophets Amos was a man that many here today may be able to relate to …

Born some 750 years before the birth of the Messiah he preached about we can relate to the man because Amos in many respects was just like us…

Common…

Nor born from a priestly or noble decent…

Not a prominent or powerful man or a man of fame and fortune…

The text and the commentaries will tell you that the man Amos was very much a common man…

And not only have a common manned… But he came from a small town just a few miles away from Jeruselum…

So he was from the country too…

In fact… they say He worked as a sheepherder… Worked with hands… New how to make something out just a little bit…

And the Bible says that in this time in history God spoke to a Common man… to make an uncommon church and plant greatness in His people…

Amos was called to preach that God would do great things through the people that dwelled in His church…

That there would be a restoration within the church…

That the house of David … the Tabernacle of David … And the family of His people would be restored in a day…

Today I want to talk about…

Its PAYDAY… Being Elevated toward Excellence

God wants to sow into you this morning….

He wants you to really get close to this word…

Come back with me to verse 11 and look at what God is saying to you today…

(9/11) “On that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, which has fallen down.

And I will repair its damages; Raise up its ruins and rebuild it as in the days of old”

God said He is about to raise up the Tabernacle…

Meaning He is going to Raise the Church…

Meaning He is going to Raise you…

See when God says He is going to Raise something You have got to understand that to Raise something means to take something and move it to a Higher Position.,..

When I raise something up … I am lifting it up...come on somebody...

I am about to elevate something from one position to another…

Tell somebody God is about to Raise the Roof in here…

Let me put to you another way…

When a monument is raised… When a house is build …. When a dream has been made reality…

Someone had to say yes…

Someone had to be in agreement with the yes…

And someone had to bring the idea to the table get to the yes…

And all of that had to occur in order for something to be elevated …

When the monument that is being constructed for Martin Luther King, was constructed… When you dreamed of owning your business…

When you bought your first home or when you got your degree…

For those monuments to be raised…

For those dreams to be made reality…

Someone had to say yes to the dream…

Someone had to agree with the dream…

And Someone had to bring the dream to the table to get to the yes…

For that dream to get lifted up…

For that dream to get moved to a higher level…

But what happens when you fall?

Well I knew you would ask, see when we fall we are simply doing the opposite of being raised…

If being raised is being lifted up to a HIGHER LEVEL…

Then falling must mean to come down to a LOWER LEVEL… Say amen to that…

Tell somebody: new Levels… New Devils…

But Tell the Lord… Say Lord???? I’m Ready to go Higher…

Lord??? I’M READY TO GO HIGHER…

Say it one more time Lord??? I m ready to go higher…

See God told Amos that he would lift up the House of David…

That He would lift up … That He would elevate the church and the family of God that had dropped or come down from a higher place and repair…
