God’s Future Promises Bring Singing and Rejoicing

Zechariah 2:10 (ESV) … “Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion, for behold, I come and I will dwell in your midst, declares the Lord.”


Promises like this ought to make God’s people “sing and rejoice” (“shout and be glad,” niv). Their Messiah will come and dwell with them, just as the glory of God had dwelt in the tabernacle and the temple.


Ezekiel describes the new city and temple in Ezekiel 40–48, and closes his book by naming the glorious new city “Jehovah Shammah,” which means “the Lord is there” (48:35). In that day, many Gentiles will trust in the Lord and be joined with Israel in the glorious kingdom over which Messiah will reign (Isa. 2:1–5; 19:23–25; 60:1–3; Zech. 8:20–23).[1]


God has made us many future promises of better days and a brighter future. Every promise of God gives us a reason to sing and rejoice in the Lord our God!
