Think on this: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. … “On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place.” (Zechariah 12:2-3, 6)
Pray like this: Be pleased our Father, to give us discerning minds and spirits to see that what you are doing is really fulfilling your promises — and give us a burden to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
If and when Israel strikes Iran, that will start WW III in the Middle East. I believe this passage in Zechariah 12 happens toward the end of the 7 year Tribulation period when Russia, China, and the Islamic nations come to destroy Jerusalem but Yahweh destroys them instead. We are not there yet. Also, the Jews have not yet realized that Jesus is their Messiah, which will happen at the end of the great Tribulation.
