In the days of Amos the prophet, he spoke of a day when God will restore Davidic worship.

"In that day I will restore David's fallen tent. I will repair its broken places, restore its ruins, and build it as it used to be…” (Amos 9:11 NIV)

David’s fallen kingdom is not about an earthly government; it is about a system of worship. Not only did he receive the blueprint for Solomon’s temple, but King David also received a blueprint for the worship of the Almighty God.

“He gave him the plans of all that the Spirit had put in his mind for the courts of the temple of the LORD and all the surrounding rooms, for the treasuries of the temple of God and for the treasuries for the dedicated things.  He gave him instructions for the divisions of the priests and Levites, and for all the work of serving in the temple of the LORD, as well as for all the articles to be used in its service.” (1 Chr 28:12-13 NIV) 

David laid out the details on how the music, worship and services will be performed in and around the temple. Decades earlier in his life, he desired for the Ark of the Covenant to be brought in the center city of Jerusalem where he held office. He laid down his kingly robed and led a joyful procession in welcoming the symbol of God’s presence. [2 Sam 6:14] He was a man after God’s own heart. [Ac 13:22]

In these Last Days, as the Lord Jesus returns, the Father will restore everything back [Ac 3:21] – including true worship. The early New Testament church picked up on this:

“After this I will return and rebuild David's fallen tent. Its ruins I will rebuild, and I will restore it,  that the remnant of men may seek the Lord, and all the Gentiles who bear my name, says the Lord, who does these things'  that have been known for ages.” (Acts 15:16-18 NIV) 

Let us then be people who would lead people to Christ in joyful celebration. May we continue to be after God’s own heart.  Let true worship be restored in our lives.
