What will happen?
Including this & other Great things when He Returns:
“In that Day the LORD will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the one who is feeble among them in that Day will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the LORD before them” (Zechariah 12:8, NASB)
When will this happen?
In that Day – When He Returns, which is signified by the “mourning first” which is described prophetically by both the Old & New Testament verses below agreeing perfectly:
“I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.
“In that Day there will be great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the plain of Megiddo.
“The land will mourn, every family by itself; the family of the house of David by itself and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself and their wives by themselves;
the family of the house of Levi by itself and their wives by themselves; the family of the Shimeites by itself and their wives by themselves;
all the families that remain, every family by itself and their wives by themselves.” (Zechariah 12:10 – 14, NASB)
“And again another Scripture says, “THEY SHALL LOOK ON HIM WHOM THEY PIERCED.” (John 19:37, NASB)
“BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.” (Revelation 1:7, NASB)
Yes, when He Returns and His Feet will Touch the Mount of Olives too:
“And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.
And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was going, behold, two men [angels] in white clothing stood beside them.
They [angels] also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.
Then they returned to Jerusalem from the Mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey away.” (Acts 1:9 – 12, NASB)
“Behold, a Day is coming for the LORD when the spoil taken from you will be divided among you.
For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city.
Then the LORD will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle.
In that Day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.
You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him!
In that Day there will be no light; the luminaries will dwindle. For it will be a unique Day which is known to the LORD, neither day nor night, but it will come about that at evening time there will be light.
And in that Day living waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter.
And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that Day the LORD will be the only One, and His Name the only One.” (Zechariah 14:1 – 9, NASB)
Please also notice the many times the word “Day” (a particular – singular time period) is mentioned even within these verses especially in last quoted verses above.
“Turn to Me and be Saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other.” (Isaiah 45:22, NASB)
“There you will remember your ways and all your deeds with which you have defiled yourselves; and you will loathe yourselves in your own sight for all the evil things that you have done.” (Ezekiel 20:43, NASB)
“I will not hide My face from them any longer, for I will have poured out My Spirit on the house of Israel,” declares the Lord GOD” (Ezekiel 39:29, NASB)
“It will come about after this
That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind;
And your sons and daughters will prophesy,
Your old men will dream dreams,
Your young men will see visions.
“Even on the male and female servants
I will pour out My Spirit in those Days.” (Joel 2:28 – 29, NASB)
Please notice the word “in that Day” (singular – Zechariah 12:9) and “in those Days” (plural – Joel 2:29, including even ‘the day now, & days which follow thereafter’) —> which speaks of God’s Spirit promised to be Poured upon “all flesh” eventually (Joel 2:28) —-> meaning, “all men” will be “saved” (1 Timothy 2:4, 1 Timothy 4:10) being filled with His Holy Spirit eventually via the Beautiful Confession that ‘Jesus is Lord’ (1 Corinthians 12:3, Philippians 2:11, Romans 14:11, Isaiah 45:23) —-> as verses below correlate & agree Perfectly (this is a meaning of how God Will Save all, ‘not by Might, nor Power but by His Spirit’, Zechariah 4:6 in regards to “Grace only” as it is mentioned mysteriously in Zechariah 4:7,Can we see it? Since “Grace” of God certainly brings ‘Salvation’ to “All men” & not some or believing men ‘only’, as it is Written in Titus 2:11; Isn’t it astounding?) —-> indeed His Spirit which causes a permanent irrevocable change (Romans 11: upon ‘all flesh’ (Joel 2:28) too as the Perfect Gift):
“Therefore I make known to you that no one speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus is accursed”; and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 12:3, NASB)
“So the angel who was speaking with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my lord.”
Then he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel saying, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD of hosts.
‘What are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a plain; and He will bring forth the top stone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” (Zechariah 4:5 – 7, NASB)
“For the Grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men,” (Titus 2:11, NASB)
“Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:4, KJV)
“For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers.” (1 Timothy 4:10, NASB)
“And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself” – Lord Jesus Christ (John 12:32, BSB)
Are we really able to see these truths?
P/S: For further details, please consider the related write ups below for edification & thank you for reading:
Indeed, ‘all who call upon the Name of the LORD when He has Returned, will be “saved” too’ (Joel 2:32) which includes but is ‘not limited’ to those ‘who escape & the survivors’ (Joel 2:32) of the Judgment part will happen first, (e. g. Joel 2:1 – 11) the ” as it is Written in verses below as well:
“I will display wonders in the sky and on the earth,
Blood, fire and columns of smoke.
“The sun will be turned into darkness
And the moon into blood
Before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.
“And it will come about that whoever calls on the name of the LORD
Will be delivered;
For on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem
There will be those who escape,
As the LORD has said,
Even among the survivors whom the LORD calls.” (Joel 2:30 – 32, NASB)
The “singular-Day” of Salvation is referring to the time ‘now’ (e. g. 2 Corinthians 6:2, in which those who believe & obey His Gospel now will ‘escape & survive’ the Wrath of God as discussed in verses prior.
The Fact that He Will pour His Spirit on “all flesh” (Joel 2:28) eventually thereby “Saving them all eventually” (Joel 2:32, 1 Timothy 2:4, John 12:32, 1 Timothy 4:10) —-> will happen in the “plural-Days” (Joel 2:29) —-> which includes the ‘current-singular-Day of Salvation-now only’ (2 Corinthians 6:2, Hebrews 3:7, Hebrews 3:13, Hebrews 3:15, Hebrews 4:7) which is more special since it saves us from His Wrath time period as well (Joel 2:1 – 11, 1 Thessalonians 1:10, Romans 5:9) —-> but is certainly not limited to it as often erred in popular eternal Hell supporting exegesis which completely ignores the words such as “all” flesh (not believing or remnant flesh only, Joel 2:28) and even the ‘singular-Day [Hebrews 4:7] vs the plural-Days [Joel 2:29]’ as it is Written missing many Amazing things described in Holy Scripture!
All these Truths are ‘obviously’ Revealed in Holy Scripture as it is Written but we can’t see it. Amazing indeed!
Can we really understand the accuracy of His Word even to the ‘singular & plural’ too?
‘All the inhabitants of Heaven know that God is Love’ – Sadhu Sundar Singh, right?
On a further note, please consider these verses below in the Deepest Context as described as follows:
“I have sworn by Myself, The word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness And will not turn back, That to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance.” (Isaiah 45:23, NASB)
“and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:11, NASB)
“For it is written, “AS I LIVE, SAYS THE LORD, EVERY KNEE SHALL BOW TO ME, AND EVERY TONGUE SHALL GIVE PRAISE TO GOD.” (Romans 14:11, NASB)
Does “every tongue” confessing “allegiance” to “Him [God in Lord Jesus Christ]” as described in verses above include ‘Satan & the devils as well’?
If it’s a “yes” eventually way past their ‘ages of Ages’ punishment (Revelation 20:10) —> beyond those “Days” as well —> Doesn’t it imply that “All will have returned to Him” (Colossians 1:16 with Colossians 1:20) and that “His Will is Perfectly accomplished in Christ” (Psalm 40:7, Hebrews 10:7) —> which is the meaning of ‘God being All in All’ (1 Corinthians 15:28) in the “End” (please note the word “End” in 1 Corinthians 15:24)?
Yes, when “all things are under His Feet” (1 Corinthians 15:25) which means also that they have “bowed down to Him” (implied from Isaiah 45:23) —> in ‘subjection’ to Him (1 Corinthians 15:27 – 28) —> which must be in ‘Love’ (and willingly, a Change cause by His Spirit as discussed earlier) since the ‘same-word-Subjection’ is used with regards to Christ toward the Father too (in the next verse, 1 Corinthians 15:28) —> so that God becomes “All in All” (1 Corinthians 15:28).
Yes, All Creation being Fully Filled with Him Will be Accomplished eventually (Ephesians 4:9 – 10) & thus All Creation will be Perfected, being set free into the Glorious Liberty or Glorious Freedom of the Children of God (Romans 8:20 – 21) —–> as ‘when the current pain of birth pangs are over since the New Birth would have taken place by then (Romans 8:22) making All things New (Revelation 21:5) & so, All Creation will become the Children of God as described in verses quoted (Romans 8:20 – 21)’. Isn’t it clear in Holy Scripture?
Here are some posts relating to this Mystery especially with regards to the ‘Lake of Fire’ too with ‘verses’ for ‘each claim made’:
Indeed, Maranatha! Even so come, Lord Jesus.
“Thy Reign Come: Thy Will come to Pass, as in Heaven also on the Earth” (Matthew 6:10, YLT)
His Will is not Done yet? Yes, but Will eventually ‘Come to Pass’ in the “End” (please notice this words/phrases carefully in each quoted Verse to understand It Perfectly):
“Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’.” (Isaiah 46:10, NASB)
“The LORD of hosts has sworn saying, “Surely, just as I have intended so it has happened, and just as I have planned so it will stand,” (Isaiah 14:24, NASB)
“But He is unchangeable, and who can oppose Him? He does what He desires.” (Job 23:13, BSB)
“Calling a bird of prey from the east, The man of My purpose from a far country. Truly I have spoken; truly I will bring it to pass. I have planned it, surely I will do it.” (Isaiah 46:11, NASB)
Let us be Careful when we speak against God’s Holy Will to ‘Save All’ and bring them ‘All to allegiance to Him eventually’ as Scripture Promises because as it is Written:
“God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent; Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Numbers 23:19, NASB)
Some posts to understand the His Sovereignty of His Will are as follows:
‘When men or other creation are called to do God’s Will we may fail at times; however, when Lord Jesus Christ is Called to Restore All things (Acts 3:21) & Make All things New again (Revelation 21:5, Ecclesiastes 3:11) to Fulfill God’s Will to Save the World (1 John 4:14, 1 John 2:2), He cannot Fail and Will certainly Fulfill It; So, have Faith instead of doubting Him’ – Anonymous
Yes, He didn’t ask for ‘great works out of us’ any more than a ‘deeply rooted belief in Him that He is Truly Able’:
“But Jesus, overhearing what was being spoken, said to the synagogue official, “Do not be afraid any longer, only believe.” (Mark 5:36, NASB)
“Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the Work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” (John 6:29, NASB)
“Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen Me, have you believed? Blessed are they who did not see, and yet believed.” (John 20:29, NASB)
As the verses above describe, there are two ways to “believe” namely that ‘one who believes without seeing’ (called ‘faith’, as the definition in Hebrews 11:1 clearly agrees too, which is ‘more blessed’) and the other type of believing is ‘when one believes after one has seen Him’ as the verse in John 20:29 clearly implies these two cases of believing. Now, which type of ‘believing’ describes us?
