Here is the final chapter – not only of Zechariah, but also of life as we know it.
For this chapter is all about the “day of the LORD.” This is the day Jesus will descend from heaven and stand on the Mount of Olives. This is the day the LORD of hosts shall be King. This is the day the LORD my God will come.
The description is both painful and blissful. For some, this day causes great panic. For others, this day causes great worship. The difference in reaction is based solely on one’s opinion of Jesus.
To those who regard Him as King, His banner “HOLINESS TO THE LORD” flies over their lives.
To those who reject Him as King, the banner “a Canaanite” flies over their lives.
“The Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.” (Rev 22:17)
