Blessed Mountain: The Lord Is For You

Photo from:

(Ezekiel 36: 1-15)

Prophesy to the mountains

Move them with The Word

Speak and watch them move

Hear the Word of God

Listen mountains! Listen!

The Lord is jealous

For you

God is zealous

The Lord is for you

To till you. . . to sow you. . .

To rebuild your ruins

Fill your cities

To restore you

Then all will know

Here and abroad

He is the Lord

Our God!

“I am for you.” –God, Ezekiel 36:9

Ezekiel 36:6-11

“Therefore prophesy concerning the land of Israel, and say to the mountains, the hills, the rivers, and the valleys, ‘Thus says the Lord God: “Behold, I have spoken in My jealousy and My fury, because you have borne the shame of the nations.” Therefore thus says the Lord God: “I have raised My hand in an oath that surely the nations that are around you shall bear their own shame. But you, O mountains of Israel, you shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to My people Israel, for they are about to come. For indeed I am for you, and I will turn to you, and you shall be tilled and sown. I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, all of it; and the cities shall be inhabited and the ruins rebuilt. I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bear young; I will make you inhabited as in former times, and do better for you than at your beginnings. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.”
