…and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them… (Amos 9:14)
A day is coming when all the waste places in America will be rebuilt – by someone called – and settled in again. It doesn’t matter its previous history or what blood was shed there. Christ’s blood has paid the price for the land; it shall not be for cemetery but shall be a land of industry (reverse).
But the city needs to be planned anyway, not necessarily building the same old buildings on the land. The plans can be modified to suit America’s present day architecture, and the cost of construction ascertained too.
