Zechariah 14:17 And it will be that whichever of the families of the earth does not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, there will be no rain on them.
Jesus sent His apostles into the world…to the Jews first. The King was Jesus of Nazareth, He who was crucified with the sign “King of the Jews” hung above His head. He was made Lord of all (Acts 10:36) – thus He was “Lord of hosts.”
Gifts of the Holy Spirit were poured out like rain (Acts 2:17; Hebrews 6:7-9) on those who came to the Jerusalem above (Galatians 4:26).
Let us rejoice in this King…the One who reigns forever and ever!
