THE BATTLE FOR JERUSALEM

           Let us now go to Zechariah chapter 14 for further light on this conflict in the Promised Land.

           Zechariah 14:1-3.  “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.” 

           Here is brought to view a war in Jerusalem in which all nations will be involved.  In this war Jerusalem is defeated and ravished.  We notice too, that a faithful remnant will be  spared.  Verse 3 then states that after the apparent victory of the nations that fought against Jerusalem, the Lord Himself will fight against those nations.

           The following verses explain  how God will miraculously fight against these apparent victorious nations.

           Zechariah 14:12, 13 -- “And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.  And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult from the Lord shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.” 

           We see here that a flesh consuming plague from the Lord will fall upon these warring factions in the Holy Land and to compound this calamity a tumult or confusion from the Lord shall be among them and they shall slay their own men.  According to Judges 7, a similar incident took place when Gideon and his three hundred men attacked the Midianites with their pitchers and trumpets.   A tumult or confusion from the Lord came upon them and they slew themselves.  Speaking of this defeat of the state of Israel Isaiah describes it as follows:

           Isaiah 14:31 -- "Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times."

           Palestina is to be completely dissolved.  Through our study of the Bible we have come to expect the heathen to be dissolved out of Palestina in the Assyrian period.  "Whole Palestina art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke."  Smoke does not creep along the surface of the ground, but travels through the air, and as the smoke comes from the north, the phrase suggests that aerial attack will be waged against her from the north and pass on to the south.  It will mean that those who now possess Palestina will lose out.  The last phrase, "and none shall be alone in his appointed times," means that they will not be alone, for others will be with it "in his appointed times."

           The raining of Hezbollah’s rockets on Israel from North to South surely fits this description of Isa. 14:31, but that is just a foretaste of what really is to come later. These spasmodic upheavals in the Mid East is God’s means of drawing the minds of the church and the world to what God is about to do pertaining to the restoration of Israel.  The destruction of Jerusalem here described in Zechariah 14, and Isaiah 14 cannot be referring to the destruction by Nebuchadnezzar, nor Titus of Rome in AD 70, because at no time in the past to the present have the inhabitants of Jerusalem ever dwelt safely.  After this war, men will dwell peacefully in the Holy Land.  Zechariah is here saying that, just prior to the long looked for restoration of Jerusalem there is to be a major World War about the Holy Land and Israel will be defeated.  After these belligerent forces have been driven out of the land then the Lord will miraculously restore the land and gather His faithful saints.  This planet will then be moved into a new era. Zechariah confirms the following:

           Zechariah 14:9-11, 14, 21  “And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.  All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and [from] the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.  And [men] shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited....And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance...  Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.” .

           The world’s cry and search for peace in the Middle East between Jews and Arabs at this time, cannot, and will not be found.  In fact, the tensions will worsen until it evolves into a World War.  A war in which there will be no winner, but God and His remnant people.
