Quotes to Consider:
John Calvin on Amos 9:11-15: "Here the
Prophet describes the felicity which shall be under the reign of
Christ: and we know that whenever the Prophets set forth promises of a
happy and prosperous state to God’s people, they adopt metaphorical
expressions, and say, that abundance of all good things shall flow,
that there shall be the most fruitful produce, that provisions shall
be bountifully supplied; for they accommodated their mode of speaking
to the notions of that ancient people; it is therefore no wonder, if
they sometimes speak to them as to children. At the same time, the
Spirit under these figurative expressions declares, that the kingdom
of Christ shall in every way be happy and blessed, or that the Church
of God, which means the same things, shall be blessed, when Christ
shall begin to reign."
