Scripture Focus…

(11) “As for you also, because of the blood of your covenant, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. (12) Return to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope. Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.”
(Zechariah 9:11–12 NKJV)

(10) “And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. (11) In that day there shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning at Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. (12) And the land shall mourn, every family by itself: the family of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; (13) the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of Shimei by itself, and their wives by themselves; (14) all the families that remain, every family by itself, and their wives by themselves.”
(Zechariah 12:10–13 NKJV)


The following commentary to Zechariah 9 and 12 are taken from The Revival Study Bible:

Zech 9:11–12 – Because of Your Covenant

God remembers His covenant with His people. Zechariah prophesies the deliverance of his imprisoned people from certain death and destruction. Some scholars believe that these verses imply a regathering of Israel (Isa 24:17–23) when God will grant double punishment for sin and double blessing because of His covenant. Pits were representative of places of destruction and denoted dying without hope. These prophetic statements illustrate a revival of hope for the prisoners who choose to return to their stronghold of faith where true security and prosperity are found. Choices must be made in order for revival to occur. The prisoners must return or choose to go back to the stronghold they departed from.

A Great Mourning
Zechariah 12:10–12

David Brainerd, missionary to the Native Americans, gives this account of the day when the Lord moved in power:

A principal man among the Indians, who before was most secure and self-righteous and thought his state good because he knew more than the generality of the Indians had formerly done, and who with a great degree of confidence the day before, told me, “he had been a Christian more than ten years,” was now brought under solemn concern for his soul, and wept bitterly.

Another man advanced in years, who had been a murderer, a powwow (or conjurer) and a notorious drunkard, was likewise brought now to cry for mercy with many tears, and to complain much that he could be no more concerned when he saw his danger so very great. They were almost universally praying and crying for mercy, in every part of the house, and many out of doors, and numbers could neither go nor stand. Their concern was so great, each one for himself, that none seemed to take any notice of those about them, but each prayed freely for himself.

I am to think, they were to their own apprehension as much retired as if they had been, individually, by themselves in the thickest desert; or, I believe rather, that they thought nothing about any but themselves, and their own states, and so were everyone praying apart, although all together.

It seemed to me there was now an exact fulfillment of that prophecy in Zechariah 12:10–12; for there was now a great mourning, like the mourning of Hadad Rimmon; and each seemed to mourn apart. I thought this had a near resemblance to the day of God’s power, mentioned in Joshua 10:14. I must say I never saw any day like it in all respects. It was a day where I am persuaded the Lord did much to destroy the kingdom of darkness among this people today.

Continued Praying…

Lord, we want Your presence
The Church must rise up and be on alert!
By the blood, we come against any infiltration of the enemy in the body of Christ!
Lord, we NEED another outpouring!
Let there be a Holy Ghost show!
So the Church would get up and get out of the debris
Returning back to the stronghold of faith!
We repent for being too timid and relaxed
Lord, we repent for not relying on You enough
We need more of Your presence!
With our eyes of faith, we see You move across the earth
You are bringing people out of darkness and into the light
Calling for restoration in the body of Christ!
Praying for those who have walked away to come back and return to their first love!
We summon Your power and presence; we are so hungry for it!
Thank You for Your presence, Lord!
We pray over pastors, Father
Let there be an outpouring of Your strength and presence upon them
For your ways and plans to be uncovered
Seeing pastors rise up and take a stand!
Lord, we give You free reign in us today
Thank You for the blood that was shed for us and that gave us freedom!
We want Your kind of change, wisdom, and strength!
Help us to be Your reflection on this earth
