Applying Zechariah 2:8-9


Some time ago I came across Zechariah 2:8-9, verses that certainly seem to apply to the United States at this time. I wanted to share that with you and get some feedback on it:

For this is what the Lord of armies has said: In the way of glory he has sent me to the nations which have taken your goods: for anyone touching you is touching what is most dear to him. For at the shaking of my hand over them, their goods will be taken by those who were their servants: and you will see that the Lord of armies has sent me.


Although I’m not a great fan of the translation you’re using, I agree with the intent of Zechariah 2:8-9, and believe it can apply to the US. The Lord has promised to take from those nations who take from His people. He will prompt those who once were their servants to steal from them. Even a casual observer can see examples of this today. Sadly we don’t yet see the hand of God in this.
