Zechariah 14:1 & 2
A day of the Lord is coming, Jerusalem, when your possessions will be plundered and divided up within your very walls. I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.
Zechariah begins with a headline like in a newspaper and the news is that Jerusalem will be taken once again. In chapter 13, we saw that God was going to refine His people and this is a part of that process. We must also remember that God is in control of this time as He says that "I will gather the nations". As we see here, the city of Jerusalem will be divided in two by this great gathering of nations. So, what is this great gathering of nations and how is all of the nations on the earth going to be represented? The answer is that God speaks of the modern UN peacekeeping forces.
