“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem.” Zechariah 12:2
Realize this was written about 2500 years ago, and as we can see today people lay siege on Jerusalem! Its surrounded by violence and political wrangling, without any real solutions! Only the LORD will make it right!
“And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, through all nations of the earth are gathered against it.” Zechariah 12:3
Jerusalem today is a very huge burden to the world! All the nations who have tried to control it don’t exist or are of no real power today! What’s this mean for us? What the LORD says in His word always happens! Jesus said ‘the world will hate you as it hated Me.’ John 15:18, He also said ‘Don’t be troubled and He goes to prepare a place for us, so we can be with Him.’ John 14:1-7.
“For you are a holy people to the LORD your God; the LORD your God has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples on the face of the earth.”
“But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
1 Peter 2:9
Today if you feel a little out of place or dismayed about events going on around us! Take courage the LORD calls you and me His special people, His prize and we get to walk in His marvelous light, Here and forever! Have a blessed day in Him!
