Zechariah 12:10: And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

The prophecy that the Lord revealed to Zechariah, which means “Yahweh remembers,” will come to pass with the “Spirit of grace and supplication.” It shall come to pass when nations come against Jerusalem, causing great mourning due to the war in the valley of Megiddon, which is the Battle of Armageddon. (Rev 16:16) Two-thirds of the people will be cut off and die, but the remaining third shall be left therein. This prophecy will be completely fulfilled just before the end times of the seven-year tribulation period, as He will come down and His feet shall stand on that day upon the Mount of Olives which is before Jerusalem. (Zec 13:8-9/14:4)

This Messianic Prophecy has come to pass for those who know that their forefathers were the ones who pierced the Lord on the cross. Some truly knew this was the Son of God, for the centurion and those with him saw the graves that were opened and many bodies of the saints who slept arose, came out of the graves, went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. (Mat 27:52-53) There will be a rapture of the church before the seven-year tribulation period when the Lord shall descend from heaven for the sake of the elect whom He hath chosen. He has shortened the days. (Mark 13:20) With a shout and a trump of God, the dead shall arise, and those who are alive will be caught up together in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. (1 Thes 4:15-17)

The two witnesses, sent by the Father to witness Him and had seen our Lord Jesus on the Earth and spoken to Him, will prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days clothed in sackcloth. (Rev 11:3) During the first half of the tribulation period when the antichrist appears, he will force mankind to take the mark of the beast. Those who have not taken will then be refined as silver and tried as gold and shall then have to flee to the valley of the mountains and reach Azal and be saved. (Zec 14:4-5/Rev 13:16/Mark 13:14) Those who shall be refined shall be tried as gold whose forefathers had pierced Him, they shall mourn and be in bitterness for their houses shall be rifled and the woman ravished, half the city shall go into captivity and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. (Zec 14:2)

Zechariah 3:2: And the Lord said unto Satan, "The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?"
