An Assurance of God’s Glorious Kingdom for His Church Today (Zechariah 14:1-9) by Brock McCoy
The Greater Heritage Study Guides are concise yet thorough booklets that shed light on important Biblical truths, as well as significant moments and figures in church history.
Zechariah 14 is a highly debated and difficult Biblical passage to interpret. It chronicles a coming day of the Lord where God will bring to pass His rule and reign over all things.
Some view the passage as a literal word for word tangible fulfillment. Others as an apocalyptic symbolic fulfillment.
Regardless of one’s view, Brock McCoy (St. Paul’s Mars Hill Sermon) presents both sides and offers a middle ground approach.
Through this Study Guide he considers how the prophecy of the coming day of the Lord, though difficult to understand, provides the church with great security in an uncertain world.“The church today can live in a state of thankfulness, security, and joy knowing that there is a glorious future in store for her.”
As he states, “The coming day will be unimaginable and glorious for God’s children yet hopeless for His enemies.”
An Assurance of God’s Glorious Kingdom for His Church Today teaches that the hope of God’s eternal kingdom will one day become a literal reality for God’s people.
Therefore, the church today can live in a state of thankfulness, security, and joy knowing that there is a glorious future in store for her.
Ultimately, it is God’s love and salvation expressed in the prophecy in Zechariah 14 that ought to compel the believer to shout for joy each and every day that he arises from sleep, knowing that regardless of what occurs here and now, there is a much better day drawing near.
