In Zechariah chapters 12-14, there are about 17 references
to “that day.” Here are a few of them.

“On that day a fountain will be opened to the house of David
and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and impurity. ‘On
that day, I will banish the names of the idols from the land, and they will be
remembered no more,’ declares the LORD Almighty. ‘I will remove both the
prophets and the spirit of impurity from the land’” (Zech. 13:1-2).

“On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half
to the eastern sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter. The
LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and
his name the only name” (Zech. 14:8-9).

“On that day HOLY TO THE LORD will be inscribed on the bells
of the horses, and the cooking pots in the LORD’s house will be like the sacred
bowls in front of the altar” (Zech. 14:20).

Let us look forward to that day.
