“From this day on – from thistwenty fourthday ofthe ninthmonth, give careful thought: Is there yet any seed left in the barn? Until this day the vine (bride of Christ) and the fig tree (Israel – bride of God) the pomgranate and the olive tree have not borne fruit. From this day on I will bless you.”
In verse 12 God says to Israel:
“Return, faithless Israel, declares the Lord. I will frown on you no longer, for I am merciful, declares the Lord. I will not be angry forever. Only acknowledge your guilt – you have rebelled against the Lord your God, you have scattered your favors to foreign gods under every spreading tree, and have not obeyed me.”

“Come, let us return to the Lord. He has injured us but he will bind up our wounds. After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will restore us, that we may live in his presence. Let us acknowledge the Lord; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, (the dawn of the Millennium) he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.”
“I was pushed back and about to fall, but the Lord helped me. The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.... The Lord has chastened me severely, but he has not given me over to death. Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord... I will give thanks for you answered me; you have become my salvation.... This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. O Lord, save us; O Lord grant us success. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.”
“The fruit of righteousness will be peace; the effect of righteousness will be quietness and confidence forever."
