His People like Jewels


Zechariah 9:9  Rejoice with all your heart, Daughter of Zion. Your King is coming, mounted on a donkeys colt.  He has won the victory.                [ The first coming of the Lord Jesus. He has defeated death ]

Zechariah 9:10  He will banish all weapons of war and proclaim peace to the nations. His Rule will extend over all the earth.

Zechariah 9:11-12  As for My covenant people, I will free the captives. On this Day, I shall restore a double portion to you.                 [ After His second coming – His Millennial rule. Israel restored and blessed]

Zechariah 9:13  Judah and Ephraim, the sons of Zion – I have made you like a warriors  sword, prepared for battle against the Gentiles.                  Must be before His second coming, as weapons are prepared for battle.                   Judah = the Jews.  Ephraim = the 10 tribes scattered around the world.

Zechariah 9:14  The Lord will appear over them. Before His Glorious return His arrow will flash like lightning. A coronal mass ejection, sunstrike.         The Lord will sound the trumpet and advance with the storm winds of  the South. The Lord’s Day of vengeance and wrath. Ezekiel 20:47-48

Zechariah 9:15  His troops will be protected, they will exult and destroy the enemy.         A great Day of battle, the evil neighbours of Israel destroyed.

Zechariah 9:16  On that Day, the Lord will save His people, like a flock. They will sparkle  In His Land, like jewels in His crown.                                          After this event, all of His people will return to the Land.

Zechariah 9;17  What wealth is theirs!  What beauty!                          Plenty of good food and wine for all His people.
