Jehovah Shall Be King Over the Whole Earth!

“In Zechariah the Messiah is described as the "King," who is "just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, even upon a colt the foal of an ass," Zech 9:9(with which compare Matthew's account of Jesus' public entry into Jerusalem, Matt21:1-11); whose dominion is to be universal: "His dominion shall be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth," Zech 9:10; who is to be sold for thirty pieces of silver, Zech 11:12-13 (with which compare Matthew's account of Judas' treachery Matt26:14-16). Because the Jews rejected the Messiah they have brought upon themselves untold suffering and reproach and have been given up to long dispersion. This too was foretold by Zechariah: "I will scatter them with a whirlwind among all the nations which they have not known," Zech 7:14,—and this is precisely what they have experienced during these nineteen centuries that have elapsed since that time. But happily Zechariah tells us something more. At long last God is to pour out upon the people of Israel "the spirit of grace and of supplication," and many are to turn to the Messiah and repent: "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," Zech 12:10. This was fulfilled in part at least on the day of Pentecost, when Peter preached with such power and conviction that "they were all amazed, and were perplexed, saying one to another, What meaneth this?"—and "about three thousand souls," all Jews, were converted in one day, Acts 2:12,41. Furthermore, says Zechariah, Messiah's kingdom is to triumph and become universal: "Jehovah shall be king over all the earth," Zech 14:9. “
