Chapters 12-14 represent a singular context in Zechariah’s prophecy. The first verse reminds us of who truly sourced these words: “Thus says the LORD, who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth and forms the spirit of man within him.”
These are not man’s words, man’s ideas, nor man’s desires – these are the very words of the Being who created the heavens and the earth and human beings in His image.
There is a day coming when, “the LORD will save,” when “the LORD will defend,” Israel, Judah, and Jerusalem. These words give us insight into the mindsets of those who support, and of those who oppose, the nation of Israel and the city of Jerusalem.
There is a day coming when God will pour, “the Spirit of grace and supplication,” upon the nation of Israel.
From the moment your mind was first awakened to the reality that there is a God, He has been pouring out His Spirit of grace, underserved favor, upon you. His grace enables you to look, to really see, Jesus who was pierced, not just on your behalf, but by you. His grace enables you to mourn – a godly sorrow that produces repentance and leads to salvation. His grace enables you to ask for more grace.
Ask in faith in Jesus.
