Zechariah 12:10 ” And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on Me, the One they have pierced, and they will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only child, and grieves bitterly for him as one grieves for a first born son.”

This speaks to the spiritual impact the Second Coming of Christ will have on the Jewish people. And as one who witnessed Jesus’ death, and resurrection, John quoted Zechariah about this future event when he said, ” They will look upon the One they have pierced.” (John 19:34-37) For as they behold Jesus with unveiled eyes, the stark and devastating reality will sink in, and they will be filled with weeping as if grieving for a dearly beloved only child. But if it wasn’t for the Spirit of God pouring out His mercy and kindness, they would all drowned in utter despair and hopelessness. But because of His grace poured out, they are led towards repentance (Romans 2:4), and Godly sorrow which leads to salvation. (II Corinthians 7:10)
