Zechariah 12

Reader comment on item: More on the Muslim Claim to Jerusalem

Submitted by Ugri (Finland), Aug 8, 2009 at 08:35

Much has been written here about Jerusalem, yet I find it quite surprising that practically no one has paid any attention to the prophecies by Zechariah. Chapter 12:2: "I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem." (NIV) In other words: "Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples" (New King James Version)

Looks like the "surrounding peoples" are already dead drunk. And chapter 14 continues: " For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;". All the nations? That must mean the UN. Zechariah wrote his prophecies around 520 B.C. The accuracy of his predictions is astounding. They are coming true before our very eyes.
