The Era of the 8th Day: Living in the New Israel – 2

Thus says the Lord God of hosts: “I have been burning with jealousy for Zion, with furious jealousy for her sake. I am coming back to Zion and shall live in the heart of Jerusalem. Jerusalem will be called Faithful City and the mountain of Yahweh Sabaoth, the Holy Mountain. Aged men and women once again will sit in the squares of Jerusalem; each with a stick to lean on because of their great age. And the squares of the city will be full of boys and girls playing there. If this seems a miracle to the remnant of this people (in those days), will it seem one to Me?” declares Yahweh. “Look, I shall rescue My people from the countries of the east and from the countries of the west. I shall bring them back to live in the heart of Jerusalem, and they will be My people and I shall be their God; faithful and just” (Zech 8:1-8).
