THE LORD LANDS ON THE MOUNT OF OLIVES FROM WHERE HE PREVIOUSLY ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN.

      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.

A MILLENIUM PROPHECY OF ISAIAH:


Isa 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?

Verse fourteen above: Isaiah, the Prophet does not mention the Mount of Olives specifically, but he does tell us "The sinners in Zion" are afraid, they think they are going to be thrown into hell. These are the same sinners who flee to the mountains when the Lord puts his feet down on the Mount of Olives and splits it with an earthquake just outside of Jerusalem. You can be sure the earthquake will not be silent. Furthermore, the Prophet writing in Psalms says: "TOUCH THE MOUNTAINS AND THEY SHALL SMOKE." (Psalm 144:5) The Saints who go after the sinners from Zion are told in the prophecies what to say to them: "COMFORT YE, COMFORT YE MY PEOPLE, SAITH YOUR GOD. SPEAK COMFORTABLY TO JERUSALEM, AND CRY UNTO HER, THAT HER WARFARE IS ACCOMPLISHED, THAT HER INIQUITY IS PARDONED: FOR SHE HAS RECEIVED OF THE LORD'S HAND DOUBLE FOR ALL HER SINS." (Isaiah 39:1)

Isa 33:15 He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;

Verse fifteen above: This is actually a reference to THE WAYFARING MAN mentioned earlier in Isaiah 33:8. Isaiah is providing the conditions for him to be counted righteous. The "gain of oppressions" is the means by which rich businesses and their owners become wealthy. Bribes are paid behind closed doors to politicians, police, judges and government officials of all kinds; but bribes are also attempted toward the righteous who provide anyone associated with them with credibility. John the Bapist is a wayfaring man whom King Herod would have surely wanted to bribe to silence him, but since he could not be bought for any price; the king took off his head. The hearing of blood has become common on television news and in the newspapers with their sensational reports of evil in the world. The wayfaring man is in the world but not of it.

Isa 33:16 He shall dwell on high: his place of defence [shall be] the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters [shall be] sure.

Verse sixteen above: THE WAYFARING MAN will dwell for privacy in the munitions of rocks. These are the large stacks of boulders that make up a mountain or a high hill. Calling them munitions is God's take on them. Search the Scriptures and you'll find that he rains down rocks on his enemies at times. That is why they are called munitions in the text. They are his kind of ammunition. THE WAYFARING MAN will eat a simple diet without special preparation or flavor to distract his mind from God. He does not savor the things of this world.

Isa 33:17 Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

Verse seventeen above: Isaiah is addressing the sinful Jews of Mount Zion. They will "SEE THE KING IN HIS BEAUTY." The Lord will be gloriously beautiful to the eye.

Isa 33:18 Thine heart shall meditate terror. Where [is] the scribe? where [is] the receiver? where [is] he that counted the towers?

Verse eighteen above: The sinful Jews will know terror when the Lord sets his feet down on the Mount of Olives and they flee. In fleeing, they will MEDITATE on TERROR. They will think Jewish thoughts belonging to their culture.

Isa 33:19 Thou shalt not see a fierce people, a people of a deeper speech than thou canst perceive; of a stammering tongue, [that thou canst] not understand.

Verse ninetheen above: These are comforting words to them. They need not fear that they would see a fierce people on that day as it was in Israel's past during her slaughters and dispersions.

Isa 33:20 Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle [that] shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.

Verse twenty above: Now we are past the terror and the prophet is supplying some of the hope the Israeli's so desperately need. Keep in mind they have been harassed whereever they have lived in this world. In the Middle East. In the ghettos of Europe. And now the prophet is telling them they shall see JERUSALEM A QUIET HABITATION. No more suicide bombers for this generation in which this commentary is being written. And THE TABERNACLE OF DAVID shall be pitched and shall not be removed.

Isa 33:21 But there the glorious LORD [will be] unto us a place of broad rivers [and] streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.

Verse twentyone above: The prophet tells the reader of the river of living waters that will flow out of Jerusalem in the day the Lord returns. We know from other prophecies it will be a river of water and of Spirit and according to Isaiah, it will not be used for boating of any kind.

Isa 33:22 For the LORD [is] our judge, the LORD [is] our lawgiver, the LORD [is] our king; he will save us.
