    Chapter 14 is Zechariah 's prophesy of the Battle of Armageddon and Millenial Reign of Christ. Only those saved through the redeeming blood of Jesus Christ will be there. Rev.19:11 we will return with Him. He will rule for a thousand years of peace on earth and ALL nations of people that are left will come to Jerusalem to worship Him.

    Zechariah speak of many events, but verse 20,21 i am sure is yet future and with God 's help i want to be there when it happen.
  • one glorious day unto the Lord.
  • Did not this happen when Christ died and rose again and went to heaven.....?? These waters are still healing and saving lives today, without intermission and it will never dry away until the day He returns to take the Church to God. ???
