The predictions contained in this chapter seem to relate to
events which gradually extend from the death of Christ to the
glorious days of the millennium:--the destruction of Jerusalem
by the Romans, whose armies were composed of many nations,
which was "the day of the Lord," in which he came "to destroy
those who would not that he should reign over them," (ver. 1,
2;) the subversion of the Roman empire, after being the
executioners of the Divine vengeance on the Jews, by God's
stirring up the barbarous nations to invade them, (ver. 3;)
the effusion of Divine knowledge from Jerusalem, by the
promulgation of the Gospel, (ver. 4-9;) the rebuilding and
replenishing of Jerusalem, (ver. 10, 11;) the destruction of
the nations who shall fight against her, (ver. 12-15;) the
conversion of the remnant of those nations to the Lord, (ver.
16-19;) and the peace and purity of the universal church in
the latter days, (ver. 20, 21.)
