Zechariah 9 and 10

Study 6 – Zechariah 9 and 10

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. The Lord promises: safety, an abundance of food and drink, joy, restoration, protection and strength.
