[see Jer today]
Jer23..4 "Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of My pasture!" says the LORD.
2 Therefore thus says the LORD GOD of Israel against the shepherds who feed My people: "You have scattered My flock, driven them away, and not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for the evil of your doings," says the LORD.
3 "But I will gather the remnant of My flock out of all countries where I have driven them, and bring them back to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.
4 "I will set up shepherds over them who will feed them; and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, nor shall they be lacking," says the LORD.
5 "Behold, days are coming," says the LORD, "That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness; a King shall reign and prosper, and execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
6 In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell safely."
Dan2..40 And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, will break in pieces and crush all the others.
41 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter's clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay.
42 And the toes of the feet partly of iron and partly of clay, the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile.
43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay.
44 And in the days of these kings the GOD of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.
45 Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold - the great GOD has made known to the king what will come to pass after this. The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.
Rev2..26 "And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations -
27 'He shall rule them with a rod of iron; they shall be dashed to pieces like the potter's vessels' - as I also have received from My Father;
28 And I will give him the morning star.
(Mat1:21 Rom6 Gal1:4)
Mic4..NOW it shall come to pass in the latter days the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it.
2 Many nations shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the GOD of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion the law shall go forth, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
3 He shall judge between many peoples, and rebuke strong nations afar off; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks, nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.
4 But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make afraid; for the mouth of the LORD of hosts has spoken.
5 For all people walk each in the name of his god, but we will walk in the name of the LORD our GOD forever and ever.
6 "In that day," says the LORD, "I will assemble the lame, I will gather the outcast and those whom I have afflicted;
7 I will make the lame a remnant, and the outcast a strong nation; so the LORD will reign over them in Mount Zion From now on, even forever.
10 Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in birth pangs. For now you shall go forth from the city, you shall dwell in the field, and to Babylon you shall go. There you shall be delivered; there the LORD will redeem you from the hand of your enemies.
11 Now also many nations have gathered against you, who say, "Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion."
12 But they do not know the thoughts of the LORD, nor do they understand His counsel; for He will gather them like sheaves to the threshing floor.
13 "Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion; for I will make your horn iron, and I will make your hooves bronze; you shall beat in pieces many peoples; I will consecrate their gain to the LORD, and their substance to the LORD of the whole earth."
Zech3..'...I am bringing forth My Servant the BRANCH.
9 For behold, the stone that I have laid before Joshua: upon the stone seven eyes. Behold, I will engrave its inscription,' says the LORD of hosts, 'And I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.'
Zech4..9 "The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands shall also finish. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you.
10 For who has despised the day of small things? for these seven rejoice to see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel. They are the eyes of the LORD, which scan to and fro.
(Zech13:9 Mat3:11; 10:28 1Pet1:7)
Mic5..2 "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, you are little among the thousands of Judah, out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth from of old, from everlasting."
3 Therefore He shall give them up, until the time she who is in labor has given birth; then the remnant of His brethren shall return to the children of Israel.
4 And He shall stand and feed in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD His GOD; and they shall abide, for now He shall be great to the ends of the earth;
5 And this shall be peace. When the Assyrian comes into our land, and when he treads in our palaces, then we will raise against him seven shepherds and eight princely men.
6 They shall waste with the sword the land of Assyria, and the land of Nimrod at its entrances; thus He shall deliver from the Assyrian, when he comes into our land and when he treads within our borders.
7 Then the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many peoples, like dew from the LORD, like showers on the grass, that tarry for no man nor wait for the sons of men.
8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the Gentiles, in the midst of many peoples, like a lion among the beasts of the forest, like a young lion among flocks of sheep, who, if he passes through, both treads down and tears in pieces, and none can deliver.
Is10..16 Therefore the LORD, the LORD of hosts, will send leanness among his fat ones; and under his glory he will kindle a burning like the burning of a fire.
17 So the Light of Israel will be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame; it will burn and devour his thorns and his briers in one day. (1Cor3:12-15)
18 And it will consume the glory of his forest and of his fruitful field, both soul and body; and they will be as when a sick man wastes away.
19 Then the rest of the trees of his forest will be so few in number that a child may write them.
20 And it shall come to pass in that day the remnant of Israel, and such as have escaped of the house of Jacob, will never again depend on him who defeated them, but will depend on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
21 The remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, to the Mighty GOD. (Rom9-11 again)
22 For though your people, O Israel, be as the sand of the sea, a remnant of them will return; the destruction decreed shall overflow with righteousness.
23 For the LORD GOD of hosts will make a determined end in the midst of all the land.
24 Therefore thus says the LORD GOD of hosts: "O My people, who dwell in Zion, do not be afraid of the Assyrian. He shall strike you with a rod and lift up his staff against you, in the manner of Egypt."
