The Millenium Age begins the moment Christ's feet set down upon the earth. The thousand years begin from that moment on and the valley remaining from the earthquake will become a memorial of the Lord's return. A momument to his great power over all reality and a testimony of his all powerful ability to keep his Word: The following Millenium Age prophecies written by the Prophet Zecharian are accompanied by the author's comments in parenthesis to help you understand them:
14:3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
(Verse three above is the 2nd Coming of Christ. The supernatural catching up in the Resurrection of the faithful who died and those who are "alive and remain" takes place immediately before the battle of Armageddon where Christ fights against the nations of this world as in times of old when he caused them to kill one another. In this way God does not have any man's blood on his hands and once again he will show his foolishness wiser than their wisdom, for God could defeat the armies of this world without moving from his throne in heaven; but the battle of Armageddon is staged as a showplace of Christ's power in God to establish his authority for the thousand year reign:)
14:4 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 cleave 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 south.
(Verse four above is the earthquake the Lord causes when his feet touch down upon the earth he just conquered. When the Lord lands, he stands in one place as the earth splits open cutting the Mount of Olives in half. The split runs east and west.) Earthquakes are not silent. The size of this one suggests an incredibly loud roar. Furthermore, we are told in the prophecies: "TOUCH THE MOUNTAINS AND THEY SHALL SMOKE." (Psalms 144:5) The Lord's return promises to be quite a spectacle.
14:5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
(Verse five above. The Mount of Olives is only a stone's throw from the walls of Jerusalem where the Jewish people who just an hour earlier were privy to the explosive battle of Armageddon which stops at the their walls, and now they find the Lord of glory standing outside of the city, who singlehandedly destroyed the armies of the world with lightning bolts, fire and brimstone, and hurricane winds in great storming power they had never experienced. They are terrorized at his Lord's arrival, thinking he came to kill them too.They "flee to the valley of the mountains" fearing for their lives. The Lord of glory and all of his saints in whom he has come to "glorify himself" will escort them back to Jerusalem.)
14:6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:
(Verse six above It will be a hazy day. The "light shall not be clear.")
14:7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
(Verse seven. But in the evening "there shall be light." This is a very important prophecy. It identifies the charactor of the day in such a way the calling for Jewish people from all over the world to return to Israel is identifyable.)
14:8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be
(Verse eight. Living waters made of both Spirit and water "shall go out from Jerusalem" both in summer and in winter. But apparently not in the fall or spring, therefore the Lord's coming will not be in the fall or spring.)
14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
(Verse nine. The Lord shall be King of the earth and he shall have kings and lords under his authority in his global kingdom, so he shall be King of kings and Lord of lords.)
14:10 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.
(Verse ten. The land south of Jerusalem will be turned into a plain or flatlands to make room for many Israeli's of all generations to return and live in Israel.)
14:11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
(Verse eleven. Jerusalem will no longer suffer the "utter destruction" of its people as took place in the past. It is the center of the world where three religions claimed its roots: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. But Christ shall rule the world from the Millenium temple built there. Islam shall be no more. And the law shall go forth from Zion to the saved. Seeking the will of the Lord will become the religion of the nations.
