The Great Restoration

The great men of war came back to their city
Shell shocked to see their beloved city in ruins
"What happened to our beautiful buildings and lush green fields? They cried
All they could see were oceans of desolation
A city whipped to its knees under the mighty hand of the enemy
“Call forth for the priests, bring out the shofar
Bring out the inhabitants of the city 
Today the people are going to cry and repent before god
Declare a day of mourning a day of repentance”. The captain called out to the inhabitants.
The people did as he told
The Books of Law was opened to Joel 2: 19
Here is how Adonai will answer his people:
“I will send you grain, wine and olive oil,
enough to satisfy you;
and no longer will I make you
A mockery among the Goyim.
“People! the captain shouted out ,the rhema word has been spoken”
"Pick up your sickle and spades and clear the land
And start sowing!" 
The people regained their courage and went about rebuilding their land toiling in cheerfulness singing as their sweated out in the fields 
(Joel 2:21 CJB) Don’t fear, O soil; be glad! Rejoice! For Adonai has done great things.22 don’t be afraid, wild animals; for the desert pastures are green,
the trees are putting out their fruit,
the fig tree and vine is giving full yield.
23 Be glad, people of Tziyon!
Rejoice in Adoni your God!
For he is giving you
the right amount of rain in the fall,
he makes the rain come down for you,
the fall and spring rains — this is what he does first.
24 Then the floors will be full of grain
and the vats overflow with wine and olive oil.25 “I will restore to you the years that the locusts ate,
the grasshoppers, shearer-worms and cutter-worms,
my great army that I sent against you.
26 You will eat until you are satisfied
and will praise the name of Adonai
 your God,
who has done with you such wonders.
Then my people will never again be shamed.
27 You will know that I am with Isra’el
and that I am Adonai your God,
and that there is no other.
Then my people will never again be ashamed.

 The Lord had spoken and so it was  till today ,a city called by all as a land flowing with milk and honey.
