Zechariah 14:9 (ESV): 9 And the Lord will be king over all the earth. On that day the Lord will be one and his name one.
The last chapter of Zechariah describes the coming day of the Lord. The imagery is similar to what John describes in Revelation.
Zechariah says that all the nations will gather to battle against Jerusalem. God will fight against those nations. His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives which will be split in two.
The rest of the chapter describes both the devastation God will visit upon his enemies, but also the wonderful reality that God’s people will experience as God reigns supreme.
As I have read the various minor prophets this year, I have noted that while many of them speak words of judgment, many also end with glorious promises for God’s people.
This sinful world is storing up judgment that will be fierce, but for those of us who have surrendered to the King of kings, our future is glorious.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the hope that while things may look grim today, you are ultimately in control and you will bring righteousness, truth and peace to all the world. Amen.
