“Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.” Zehcariah 14 v1-5 AKJV
The day of the Lord, it will come. Shaken, pressed and torn may it be before, but in one day will all come to true justice. There will be no more deceptions, no more will one worry of diseases, nor a continued ability to live. Eternity will last forever. Lord, we thank you for this day, today. Amen
“Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the Lord of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. And it shall come to pass, that in the land, saith the Lord, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The Lord is my God.” Zechariah 13 v7-9 AKJV
“through the fire”… Lord, we thank you for your mercies and your grace. Be with each and every one we know this day. Touch the lives of those we are close to that they can know you in the most special way-the refuge of peace that passes all understanding. We thank you. Your strength is our blessing. Let those around us who do not understand, see. We thank you.
Lord, bless this day as you already have. Amen
“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they wear a rough garment to deceive: But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth. And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.” Zechariah 13 v4-6 AKJV
Lord, this day is yours. The deceptions of this world lay in front of us, let us put our faith and trust in you. Keep us Lord in your way from a place so distant and dry in our land. Keep us to meditate in you, and in your word. Let us be thankful for all that you do. Amen
“And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the Lord: and his father and his mother that begat him shall through when he prophesieth.” Zechariah 13 v3
Lord, let us be truthful in you, let our lives live out the way we should before you and before others. We thank you, our blessed savior, Amen.
“In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and uncleaness. And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will cut off the names of idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.” Zechariah 13 v1-2 AKJV
The word of the Lord, let us hear. Amen
“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. In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadad-rimmon in the valley of Megiddon. 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; The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimel apart, and their wives apart; All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.” Zechariah 12 v10 – 14 AKJV
” The spirit of grace and supplications” -forgiveness and repentance which at times seems misunderstood by many. No expert is needed in the one to one relationship with God through his son Jesus. The understanding sadness and deep sorrow to each family in its own right of the persecution of Jesus-the prophecy. To know the grace of God and it’s goodness, is to know that Jesus loves all. His burden then as it was to come, is now as it has come to pass, and today extended to the family of God in a good way so that many more in the world may know him. Lord, we thank you for this day and all the blessings of life that you do provide. We thank you. Be with my family as they are located in many places, we pray for them. We love you, we thank you. Amen
“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. 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.
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. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” Zechariah 12 v6-9 AKJV
To remember when time seems like it will last forever in a difficult state, it will pass. The end of our defense will always rest with the Almighty-God’s Sovereign for his own that trust him. Lord we thank you for this day. Amen
