I am Returned unto Zion

I am Returned unto Zion

I am Returned unto Zion

Once again the word of the Lord of hosts came to me. This is what the Lord of hosts says, “I was jealous for Zion with great fervor, and I was angry with her enemies with great fury.” Therefore, here is what the Lord says, “I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem.”

“Jerusalem will be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the Lord of hosts the holy mountain,” says the Lord. For thus says the Lord of hosts, “There will still be old men and women dwelling in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff for his lingering age.”

“Oh and the streets of the city,” says the Lord, “the streets of the city will be full of boys and girls playing and having fun.” This is what the Lord of hosts says, “If it is marvellous and amazing in the eyes of the remnant of this people when this comes to past; should it also be marvellous in My own eyes?”

Be Strong and Take Courage

“See, I will save my people from the east and west countries, and I will bring them to stay in Jerusalem,” says the Lord of hosts. “They will be My people, and I will be their God in truth and in righteousness,” says the Eternal Lord. The Lord says, “Let your hands be strong and take courage all that hear the words of the prophets in these days.”

“Remember the message of the prophets who spoke when the foundation of the house of the Lord of hosts was laid that the temple would be built,” says the Lord. “Before these days no man or beast received hired pay for their labor,” says the Lord, “because there was no peace, for I allowed every man to be against his neighbor.”

“However, now I will not be as that to the residue of this people like before,” says the Lord of hosts. “The seed will be prosperous; the vine will provide much fruit, and the ground will give plenteous increase,” says the Lord.

You Will Be a Blessing to the Nations

“The heavens will give their dew, and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things,” says the Righteous Lord. “And it will come to fruition that as my people were a curse among the nations (O house of Judah and Israel), I will so save you,” says the Lord.

“I will cause you to be a blessing to the nations, so do not fear at all, be strong and courageous,” says the Lord. The Lord says, “As I thought to punish you when your ancestors provoked me to great fervor and wrath, and I did not repent; so again have I thought in these days to do well to Jerusalem and the house of Judah.”

“Therefore do not fear, but these are the things you must do; speak the truth to every man,” says the Lord, “execute the judgment of truth and peace wherever you are, and do not imagine evil thoughts against your neighbor.”

These Things I Despise

“Do not love false promises, or make false promises, because all these are things that I despise,” says the Lord. Again the word of the Lord came to me, and here is what was said. The Lord of hosts says, “The fast of the fourth, fifth, seventh, and tenth month will be full of gladness and joy to the house of Judah.”

“These will be cheerful festivals, full of love, truth, and peace,” says the Sovereign Lord. The Lord of hosts says, “It will still come to fruition that there will come people and inhabitants of many cities from around the world.”

“The inhabitants of one city will go to another saying ‘Let’s go quickly to pray before the Lord and to see Him’, and they will all go,” says the Lord of hosts. “Yes, many people and strong nations will come to search out the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the Lord also,” says the Lord.

We are Going With You…

“In those days,” says the Lord, “It will come to pass that ten men from different nations and languages, will take hold of the skirt of the man from Judah.” “Yes, they will take hold of him and say ‘We will go with you because we have heard and understood that God is with you,” says the Lord.
