ISRAEL WILL BE SAVED BY LOVING LORD. SUPERNATURALLY DEFENDED AGAINST ATTACKS
(ZECHARIAH 12:1-9) “And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples, all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered it.( v 3 )
Yes, this is omniscient, and unquestionable God projecting into the future, as to what would become of His recalcitrant people. God is looking at every one of us and none of us is hidden from His sight.
The tones of these verses, all the surrounding peoples would be divinely allowed to gather against Jerusalem, all nations of the earth are gathered against it. Sure, in the end, they all fail.
Jerusalem is pictured as a large basin from which the nations will figuratively drink with eagerness, only to find themselves becoming intoxicated, disoriented, and thus pray for define judgment at the end, when nations gather to attack Jerusalem. Jerusalem would be protected by the Almighty God. The heathen nations that come against Jerusalem would be fighting against God. The heathen nations would fear Jerusalem, because they would actually come face to face with, and fear Jerusalem’s God.
Like fighting with heavyweight, Jerusalem will seriously injure any people that try to gain victory over it. They would surely be cut in pieces.(.ZECHARIAH 12:3 )
This is due to divine intervention. God promised: I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And this is what God would do. the great armies of the heathen who come against God’s people and Jerusalem in particular, gathering around to destroy her, will be destroyed by God. God’s people will surely win the victory. God always fights their battle against those who oppose them.
Brothers and Sisters, I want to make it clear to you that none can fight God’s chosen people (ISRAEL). God is always with them as the Mighty One.
May our good God of Israel bless you more as you are reading this message, in Jesus’ Name.
