Q. When the Jews flee to Petra in the tribulation after the AC sits in the Holy Temple, what causes them to see that Christ is their Messiah? Why not keep praying to Jehovah?
A. Speaking of a time near the end of the Great Tribulation, Zechariah wrote,
“And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.” (Zech. 12:10)
I believe this prophecy tells of the time when God will remove the blinders from Israel’s eyes and soften their hardened hearts. This will give them a supernatural understanding that Jesus is their Messiah, and always has been.
