- Regardless of what foreign
nations may have been used to destroy nations like Tyre; it is ultimately
the Lord that stands behind it. In the same way that God had formerly used
Assyria and Babylon to carry out His will; He used Alexander the Great to
fulfill Zechariah’s prophecy. At the same time that great nations like
Tyre succumbed to destruction a tiny city/state like Jerusalem was
preserved and flourished!
- In the first coming of the
Christ; He is described as a King of peace that rides in on a donkey. In
the second coming of the Christ; He is described as a warrior ready to
defeat the enemies of His people. The scope of this King of Peace and this
mighty warrior is not limited to the tiny nation of Israel. The Christ
will bring peace and comfort to the ends of the earth!
- The Lord promises: safety, an abundance of food and drink, joy, restoration, protection and strength.
