As I understand it, Zech 12:10 is one of the preconditions of Christ's second coming. There will be no second coming until Israel's plea and confession that they rejected Jesus as their Messiah. He will not return until they look to the one they pierced, and cry out for Him to return, mourning for Him. Through much tribulation we're told the remnant/12 tribes will do this. Matthew 23:37-39: "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! See! Your house is left to you desolate; for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!’ " Hosea 5:15: "I will go and return to My place Till they acknowledge their offense. Then they will seek My face; In their affliction they will earnestly seek Me.” Some christians have told me that Zech 12:10 has been fulfilled already. I can see that part of it has, because we know Christ was crucified and pierced, but Israel are still blinded. Other Christians tell me that the Jews will literally see Him first and will then mourn, and they draw reference to when all shall see Him coming in the clouds. But this can't be before Israel are saved, because Christ will not return until those 2 things I mentioned. Before there can be a cleansing of Israel's sins, and before there can be a Second Coming, Israel must first look to the one they have pierced and mourn for Him as a person that mourns for their only son. As I quoted in Matthew, before Jesus will come back, Israel must plead for Him to return, with the words "Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord" (the confession first and then the plea for His return). They don't see Him until these two things happen. Just like the Jewish leaders once led all to reject Jesus, the Messiah, the leaders will some day lead many Jews to the acceptance of Jesus. Hosea 6:1-3: Come, and let us return to the Lord; For He has torn, but He will heal us; He has stricken, but He will bind us up. After two days He will revive us; On the third day He will raise us up, That we may live in His sight. Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the Lord. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth" From what I have studied, it will be in the last 3 days of the tribulation. Jesus returns at the request of the Jews. Scripture says this will happen in the future. It's my belief that the gentile church is not here when this happens because God's focus is on Israel and it's at their request that Christ will return. What are your thoughts on this?
