in the book of Zechariah, chapter 12

Please read especially verses 1 through 12 (below):

The 12th chapter of Zechariah has some great insights into what's coming, and what's beginning to happen, on this earth. Please read it, and read the related verses that these verses lead you to read, in other portions of God's Holy Word. You may end up as inspired as I am, right now. Hallelujah! God is with us, and with all who are His chosen people!

He promised He would put His law (His instructions to us, as His children, His teachings ... called the Torah, in Hebrew) into our hearts, and write them / His law on the tablet of our heart / mind. He has done that. Now, we are to submit our lives (our thoughts, our will and our emotions, our words, our attitudes and our actions), and our plans, hopes, dreams and expectations to His Life He has shown to us, through the witness and testimony, suffering and sacrificial atonement made by God's Son, Yeshua the true Messiah, and ... Who is now alive, having been resurrected from the dead on the third day after He was killed, and hung on a cursed tree (a Roman execution stake, outside the city walls of Jerusalem), and Who now sits at the Right Hand of The Almighty God, YHWH, in Heaven.

We, who are true believers, have been made "alive in Messiah Yeshua." Hallelujah! He has purchased us, has chosen us, has redeemed us, by His precious Blood, which was shed, in our place, on "the tree," and ... now, we belong (entirely) to Him -- to God our Father in Heaven, and to Yeshua, His Son, the Messiah, the Promised, Anointed One of Israel.

Yeshua *is* The Way, The Truth and The Life! He is Lord over all! He made all things, and in Him all things consist! He is The King of kings, the Lord of all lords! He rules over all, and God, YHWH, The Lord Adonai, The Almighty, has put all things under Yeshua's feet! All will, one day, submit to Him and bow down and worship Him -- Yeshua! Prepare for that day. If you do not know Him, then please read what is in the book of Zechariah, and ... ask The Lord YHWH, Yeshua, to reveal Himself to you! He is ready to listen to all who call upon His Name, in truth! ... haShem Adonai Yeshua .... (see Psalm 145: 18-21, especially verses 18 and 19)

Blessings to you all!

Zec 12:1 The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

Zec 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem.

Zec 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Zec 12:4 In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.

Zec 12:5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem [shall be] my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.

Zec 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, [even] in Jerusalem.

Zec 12:7 The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify [themselves] against Judah.

Zec 12:8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David [shall be] as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.

Zec 12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

Zec 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for [his] only [son], and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for [his] firstborn.

Zec 12:11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

Zec 12:12 And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;

Zec 12:13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;

Zec 12:14 All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.
