2 - Prophecy of Christ's Return

Zechariah 14:4
On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, just east of Jerusalem. The Mount of Olives will be split in two, forming a very large valley from east to west. Half of the mountain will move toward the north, and the other half will move toward the south.
(God's Word)

Details of the return of Christ to the earth to bring peace to Israel and to rule over Israel, fill the Old Testament. This is one of the exciting verses about His return. It speaks of the place of His return and the power of His return.

Place of His return. "On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives."
When Christ returns to earth to rule over Israel and bring peace to the world, He will touch down on Mount Olivet.
That is fitting, for it was from this mount east of Jerusalem that Christ ascended (Acts 1:9,12) forty days after His resurrection from the grave.

This return must not be confused with the catching away of believers in Christ.
In that event, Christ does not touch down on the earth but simply meets the redeemed in the air. Here He touches down on earth to rule and reign. This event will end the war of Armageddon, destroy the Jews' enemies, and exalt Christ as never before on the earth.

Power of His return. "The Mount of Olives will be split in two, forming a very large valley from east to west."
When Christ touches down on the Mount of Olives, a great earthquake will split the Mount of Olives in two from west to east. One of the things this split will do is make possible for the river of water coming from the new Temple to go into the Dead Sea and purify it.

Some years ago a major hotel chain was reported to have wanted to build a hotel on top of this mount. But engineers told them it would be unwise to do so, for there was a geological fault under the mount which in case of an earthquake could ruin the hotel. So the hotel chain did not build there.

The Bible, however, gave this advice 2, 500 years ago. The Bible is faithful to tell us where not to build. Not only does it tell us where not to build buildings as here, but it also tells us where not to build our lives.

The only foundation upon which to build is Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 3:11). Any other ground will bring ruin.
