Promises

(Zechariah 12:1,2, 9,10)

The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
...
And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced , and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

This promise thrills me! It leaves no doubt as to God's heart towards His people. In that day when the world comes against Jerusalem to destroy the nation of Israel, God will turn the tables on them. Then He will remove the veil that has blinded Jews from receiving Jesus (Yeshua) as their messiah and pour out His grace upon them!!
