Part IV The Second Coming of Jesus Christ.....His Revelation to the Jews
"....: and they ( the Jews) shall look upon me whom they have pierced,
and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourneth for his only son, and
shall be bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his first born."
Zech 12: 10; Rev 1: 7
The Messiannic Hope
For centuries the Jewish people waited for and expected the Messiah, the promised Redeemer of the Messianic Hope.
2000 Years ago under Roman oppression a conviction existed among certain Jews that the Messiah and His Kingdom
would immediately appear.
".....and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear." Luke 19: 11; See also: John 4: 25;
Luke 2: 25, 38; 23: 51; Acts 1: 6
This never happened.What the leaders of the Jews did not know was that the Great Healer among them was indeed their
Messiah.John 1: 41; 4: 25.
".....if they had recognised the Lord as the true Messiah then they would not have crucified the Lord of glory." I Cor 2: 8
The Jews,as foretold by Christ ( Luke 17: 25; Matt 20: 18,19) rejected and crucified Him.Prophecy concerning His
sufferings had to be fulfilled....then after that He would go to the Father and then return.John 14: 28; I Pet 1: 11.
This very same Messiah shall come with the clouds, ".....: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced and they
shall mourn for Him...." Zech 12: 10; Rev 1:7
The Lord shall gather them from the ends of the earth and bring them
into their own land. Isaih 11:10 - 16; 43: 3 - 6; Ezek 37: 1- 28....
"Whole House of Israel"
That is, the Whole Twelve Tribes, are to be gathered back to their own land.
"In those days the house of Judah shall walk with the house of Israel, and they shall come together out of the land of
the north to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers." Jer. 3:18.
They will be gathered back unconverted. Then follows Israel's conversion
"For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land."
And when they shall be restored to their own land, God says:
"Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols,
will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony
heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in
my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. And ye shall
dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God." Ezek 36: 24 - 28.
But before Israel's conversion they are to be judged
And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with
a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.
And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face.
Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord GOD.
And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant:
And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the
country where they sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
Ezek 20:34 - 38
God will cast them into His melting pot
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye are all become dross, behold, therefore I will gather you
into the midst of Jerusalem.
As they gather silver, and brass, and iron, and lead, and tin, into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire upon it,
to melt it; so will I gather you in mine anger and in my fury, and I will leave you there, and melt you.
Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof.
As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof; and ye shall know that
I the LORD have poured out my fury upon you.
Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall
suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith
the LORD of hosts.
But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire,
and like fullers' soap:
And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and
silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness. Malachi 3:1 - 3
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. Zech 13:9
This called the "Time of Jacob's Trouble." Also called "The Great Tribulation"
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and
there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that
time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.Dan 12:1
Then Jesus Christ will come back to Jerusalem
"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."
