Imports-exports are big business. Any country that imports more than it exports is in serious trouble. My husband drove a big-rig for several years. We saw the same problem on a smaller scale. Florida, the Sunshine State is among the top states for tourism. We seldom had problems getting loads going into central and southern Florida. Yet, because there is so little manufacturing, we frequently had difficulty locating a load out of the state. Once, the company he worked for had us leave empty. They lose money on trips like that. Exports are essential.
As the city of God, Jerusalem will be the leading export city of His word! “In the last days the mountain of the LORD’S house will be established at the top of the mountains and will be raised above the hills. Peoples will stream to it, and many nations will come and say, ‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us about His ways so we may walk in His paths.’ For instruction will go out of Zion and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem (Micah 4:1-2 HCS).” No one need leave empty!
