Podcast 248: True Mourning and the Salvation of Israel

Zechariah 12:10 states:

“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then (what) they will look on Me whom they pierced.  Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn.”

Quick question:  When does the pouring out of God’s Spirit happen?  And when does the mourning and grieving take place?   Since they must take place after the death of Jesus, do they take place during the time of the early church?  Or, does it refer to the great expansion of preaching and growth during the ages that follow (Reformed / Amillennial view)?  Or, does it refer to a time yet in the future (Dispensational / Premillennial view)?

Quick answer:  Historically, these events were not fulfilled during the days of the early church.  Second, these passages cannot be interpreted as referring to the church since there is no mention of “the people of God” or even “Israel” for that matter.  Additionally, there is no greater Jewish prophecy in all of Zechariah.  Note verses 12 and 13:  “house of David, house of Nathan, house of Levi, family of Shimei.”

So what does this mean for us today?  Much.  Keep listening to find out more.

Podcast 247:  Israel, the Antichrist, and Dark Days Ahead

Podcast 247: Israel, the Antichrist, and Dark Days Ahead

Just the mention of the word Antichrist brings to mind images from Revelation 13 and of some old, outdated movies that were made in the late 70’s.  Remember those movies?  I sure do.

But the Scripture reveals much about the Antichrist from the Old Testament.  In fact, Zechariah gives us the only physical description of the Antichrist found in Scripture and his description lines up perfectly with what we know from Revelation 13.  Zechariah says:

“Woe to the worthless shepherd, who leaves the flock!
A sword shall be against his arm and against his right eye;
His arm shall completely wither, and his right eye shall be totally blinded.”

Podcast 236:  Aslan is on the Move!

Podcast 236: Aslan is on the Move!

In the last verse of the second chapter of Zechariah we find the chilling statement that God will no longer stay silent while His people, the apple of His eye, are mistreated by others.  The sleeping Giant has awakened.  Momma bear is ready to protect her cubs.  The time for the great awakening is upon us.

“Be silent, all flesh, before the Lord, for He is aroused (or, awakened) from His holy habitation!”

In other words, Aslan in on the move!  And you’d better be ready.

This following is a study on Zechariah 2:1-13.
