Zechariah 14:9 King Of The Whole Earth

The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name. Zechariah 14:9

Looking into the future Zechariah sees a time when God will overcome all the nations of the earth. At that time He will destroy all false beliefs and gods. God will be the God of all the earth.

At the time of Zechariah and even today, there are many gods on this earth. People worship and serve other people, false gods and things. Some will worship them to the point of making it a religion, while many will just give their whole life to something or someone.

It looks as though the world and Satan is in control and will win the battle. Churches appear to be getting smaller and smaller, many closing their doors. Sinful activities are promoted more and more openly everywhere. Certain false religions appear to be on the rise, growing more and more all the time.

This looks the same as when Israel was in captivity and there appeared to be no hope left. God had said that He rejected them and cast them out. The nations of the world had overcome Israel. Yet, there was a hope. Not all were destroyed in the captivity. After a time in captivity, they were restored. Later after that, they regained their land as their own nation and country.

While it appears that the world and Satan are winning, they are not. God is setting up the stage for the return of Jesus. When Jesus returns all sin will be destroyed for all eternity. A new heaven and a new earth will be made. At that time the name of Jesus and God will be the only names worshipped and honored. God will be God of the entire earth.

Each day that you look out on this world and read or see the news, keep in mind that Jesus said that He will return some day. There will be a day when He returns and takes you away with Him to a home He has prepared for you.

Until that day, stay strong in your faith in Jesus. Continue to let every person know what Jesus has done and can do for them. Be a witness and strive to bring as many with you to God as you can. In the end God will be God of all the earth. You have hope!

I pray today that you will know the salvation of Jesus in your life; that you will know the hope you have in Jesus; that God will remove the fear of the world in your life; and that you will be a witness for Jesus to this fallen world.
