Zechariah 13:1 In That Day!

“In that day a fountain will be opened for the house of David and for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, for sin and for impurity."  Zechariah 13:1
You know you have a good book in your hands when the author and your Spirit both rise up in praise to God at the reading of a paragraph.  This morning as I read this paragraph in David Baron's study of Zechariah, I could sense the amazing sovereignty of God, turning a curse into a blessing by the sheer force of His Love-driven will!   Enjoy it with me....
"Yes, Israel 'in that day' shall experience the wonderful and everlasting efficacy of the blood of Jesus their Messiah, God's Son, which cleanseth from all sin.  In quite another and blessed sense shall that fearful prayer once uttered in ignorance, "His blood be on us and our children," which has haunted the Jewish conscience through all the centuries since, and has, like the blood of Abel, brought down the curse of Cain on the whole nation, be fulfilled 'in that day.'  It shall be upon them for life and not for death, for cleansing and not for defilement."

I think the happiest moments in God's life are when His grace overwhelms our sin like the tide picking up something that was drifting out to sea and pushing it back, with an unbelievable force of will, that completely lifts up the object and turns it in the exact opposite direction, all for the glory of His Name!

To life, To life L'chaim, l'chaim
