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.    His people, every faithful Christian; in their heritage 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, now the faithful Christians.

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 neighbors 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 faithful Christian people will live in the Land.

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