What Does Zechariah 14:9 Mean?

And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one, and His name the only one.

Zechariah 14:9(NASB)

Verse Thoughts

The fool has said in his heart that there is no God, and the scoffer has mocked the promise of His return, but the day is coming when the Lord Jesus Christ will return as King of kings and Lord of lords. In that day, and the earth will be filled with His glory, as the waters cover the sea, and He will reign over all the earth.

The absolute sovereign lordship of Israel's Messiah-King will one day reach its fulfilment, for He will return to a world that rejected Him and to a people that cried, "We will not have this man to reign over us." Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

The Lord Jesus Christ will set up His world-wide kingdom on earth, when Israel will be the head of the nations and not the tail. In that day, the wolf will lie down with the lamb, the young child shall play over the hole of the cobra, and God will live among His people. For the Lord Himself will be king over all the earth, and in that day Christ Jesus alone will be worshiped. His name alone will be magnified.

We read in Deuteronomy that the Lord our God is ONE - one God in three Persons - for He is the one sovereign Creator, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the one, eternal, unique, infinite, almighty, incomparable, omniscient, all-powerful, triune God and in that day, the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdom of our God and of His Christ, and He shall reign for ever and ever.

In that day, the eternal, incarnate Son of God will be the universal King over all the earth. In that day, Christ Himself will be recognised as the one and only true God. In that day, His Name will be the only name worshipped and glorified - for He alone is worthy.

My Prayer

Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. How I praise You, Lord, for loving me so much that You became a man so that by death, You would destroy death and give all who believe in You, eternal, abundant life. Draw many into Your kingdom today, for You alone are worthy of our praise and worship, forever and ever, AMEN.
