The LORD’s Reign in Zion

I have been thinking about Jesus and Israel lately:

All my thoughts centered together last night in a church Bible study on Malachi 4:6-5:5.

 . . . So the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion from now on, even forever. (4:7)

Now also many nations have gathered against you, who say, “Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.”  But they do not know the thoughts of the LORD, nor do they understand His counsel; for He will gather them like sheaves to the threshing floor. (4:11-12)

And He shall stand and feed His flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD His God; and they shall abide, for now He shall be great to the ends of the earth; and this One shall be peace. (5:4-5a)

Many Jews (and many Gentiles) might think He is mad and has a demon (John 10:20).  But Jesus is the Good Shepherd (John 10:11).  And trusting in His vicarious death on the cross for us is our only hope of peace.

Will you let Jesus lead you “beside the still waters”?

He is the King who will fully reign in Zion.
