Messiah: His Final Call to Israel Series, Part 30
One of these days, the Messiah will return. The events surrounding that time or the last days of the Age of Grace are a subject the Bible speaks about in abundance. Israel is and will be a significant part of this great event. When Israel, with eyes open to spiritual realities and undisputed historical facts regarding Jesus of Nazareth, pleads for Him to return, He will rend the heavens, return to the earth, and champion the cause of Israel. The prophets spoke in the most glowing terms of the personal reign of Messiah over all nations.
When He returns, He will lift the curse from the earth, and reign from sea to sea, from the River to the ends of the Earth. Earth's golden age is as yet in the future. Below are some Scripture references about the return, the rule and the reign of Jesus of Nazareth. I encourage you to prayerfully read them. And please pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

Zechariah 14:1-8 Behold, a day of Jehovah cometh, when 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 Jehovah go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the East. And the mount of Olives shall be cleft in the midst thereof toward the East and toward the West, and there shall be a very great valley. And half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the outh. And ye shall flee by the valley of my mountains, for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azel; yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. And Jehovah my God shall come, and all the holy ones with thee. And it shall come to pass in that day, that there shall not be light. The bright ones shall withdraw themselves, but it shall be one day which is known unto Jehovah -- not day, and not night. But it shall come to pass, that at evening time there shall be light. And it shall come to pass in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem, half of them toward the Eastern sea, and half of them toward the Western sea In Summer and in Winter shall it be.
Revelation 19:11-21 And I saw the Heaven opened; and behold, a white horse, and he that sat thereon called Faithful and True. And in righteousness he doth judge and make war. And his eyes are a flame of fire, and upon his head are many diadems; and he hath a name written which no one knoweth but he himself. And he is arrayed in a garment sprinkled with blood. And his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which are in Heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and pure. And out of his mouth proceedeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron. And he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness of the wrath of God, the Almighty. And he hath on his garment and on his thigh a name written, KINGS OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun, and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in mid-heaven, "come and be gathered together unto the great supper of God, that ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses and of them that sit thereon, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, and small and great." And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat upon the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought the signs in his sight, wherewith he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast and them that worshipped his image. They two were cast alive into the lake of fire that burneth with brimstone, and the rest were killed with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, even the sword which came forth out of his mouth: and all the birds were filled with their flesh.
